Kate Beckinsale Plays ‘Marry, Shag, Kill’ With Co-Stars Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett, Colin Farrell

11 August 2017 5:48 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Kate Beckinsale is an open book! The 44-year-old actress played “Plead the Fifth” on Thursday night’s Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen and answered two and a half out of the three questions.

First, host Cohen asked Beckinsale to play “Marry, Shag, Kill” with her Pearl Harbor co-stars, Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett, as well as her Total Recall co-star, Colin Farrell.

“That’s quite hard!” she exclaimed. “I’d probably have to shag Colin because I’ve sort of semi-done it onscreen so I feel like it would count. I’d marry Ben, and I’d kill Josh.”

When the audience gasped at her quick response, Beckinsale looked surprised, saying, “Shocking answer!”

Cohen then asked if the rumors were true that she and her Vacancy co-star, Luke Wilson, had some tension because he was allegedly “hungover, late to set »

Matt Reeves Might Bring Planet of The Apes Screenwriter On Board The Batman

21 July 2017 2:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Seeing as Matt Reeves will be directing Warner Bros.’ upcoming Dark Knight solo film The Batman, fans have generally assumed that he would also be providing the script for the movie. This looked even more sure when Reeves confirmed that he’s disregarding the previous screenplay written by Ben Affleck, Geoff Johns and Chris Terrio – back when Affleck was still attached to direct – and will be starting from scratch. Still, a look at Reeves’ resume reveals that he’s only co-written three scripts in his career, which had people concerned.

Thankfully, it looks like there’s nothing to worry about, as Splash Report is claiming that “sources” have informed them that Reeves will be bringing on board Mark Bomback to complete the screenplay for The Batman. If true, this choice makes a lot of sense.

After all, the pair have previously worked together on both Dawn of the Planet of the Apes »

Flatliners Remake Trailer Hits The Internet

14 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Coming Soon brings us word that Sony Pictures has released the poster, and trailer, to the new movie Flatliners, the remake of the 1990 Joel Shumacher film which starred Julia Roberts and Keifer Sutherland. The remake stars Ellen Page and Diego Luna. The story centers around five college students who perform a dangerous experiment that tries to prove there is life after death. As each has a unique near death experience, they deal with the sins of their past while also dealing with the consequences of playing with the afterlife.

I am one of the few folks who tries to give remakes a chance. The original Flatliners movie wasn't bad at all. It wasn't a classic of film history, but the premise for the movie was a unique idea. What would happen if people could find a way to prove that there is life after death? What would be the consequences of their actions? »

Sin City TV show in the works

31 May 2017 3:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Chris Longo Jun 1, 2017

Frank Miller is shopping Sin City to TV networks. They're lining up for it, apparently...

Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez turned Miller’s graphic novel Sin City into stylish noir for the silver screen over a decade ago, but would a television series be A Show To Kill For?

Networks hungry for old IP seem to think so. Deadline reports that suitors are lining up for a Sin City television adaptation, one that would introduce new characters in that universe. 

No network is officially on board yet, but it can only be a matter of time. It's easy to imagine this being a big blockbuster of a show.

The project has picked up steam now that it has Bob and Harvey WeinsteinLen Wiseman (Total Recall), and The Walking Dead's Glen Mazzara behind it.

Mazzura, whose credits also include The Shield and The Omen, is set to write. »

Kirsten Dunst and Sofia Coppola on Hollywood Sexism, Their Feminist ‘Beguiled’ Remake

16 May 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sofia Coppola met her muse Kirsten Dunst in 1998. The actress was just 16 at the time, and the 27-year-old daughter of Francis Ford Coppola was about to make her directorial debut with “The Virgin Suicides,” based on a novel that she loved. Dunst was so innocent, she brought her mom along to chaperone their initial conversation. “I was a little nervous,” she says. “It was my first adult role!”

So much of Hollywood is filtered through the male gaze. But Coppola, who tells stories from the perspectives of her heroines, immediately put Dunst at ease. “She was always a good influence on me as a young woman,” Dunst says, recalling a compliment that Coppola once paid her that she never forgot. “She said to me, ‘I love your teeth; don’t ever fix your teeth.’ I remember doing a ‘Spider-Man’ movie later, and one of the producers was like, ‘I need »

From Angelina Jolie to Daisy Ridley, Here’s the Top 14 Female Action Stars Working Today

4 April 2017 4:12 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Way back in 1979, Ridley Scott’s “Alien” brought us our first genuine female action hero in Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley. Despite the three sequels that followed, Ripley proved to be something of an outlier. Until fairly recently, a woman could kill someone in a movie only if she faced brutal punishment afterward, as in Scott’s “Thelma and Louise,” or in the inevitable fates of Bond girls: They could dole out lethal action, but rarely survived.

Today, ass-kicking women are no longer an anomaly or subject to automatic retribution. This weekend, we watched Scarlett Johansson lay waste to her enemies (although not the box office) in “Ghost in the Shell,” following a path blazed by the likes of Linda Hamilton (“Terminator 2: Judgment Day”), Uma Thurman (“Kill Bill”), and Michelle Yeoh (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”). These roles may strike a blow for equality and diversity, but what these women — and »

Colin Farrell Re-Teams with Yorgos Lanthimos for a New Amazon Series

22 March 2017 10:22 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Why the Greek director’s tragicomic sensibility is perfect for the subject matter.

Not to be outdone by Netflix’s upcoming string of auteur dramas, Amazon Studios just announced that director Yorgos Lanthimos will be reteaming with The Lobster star Colin Farrell for an upcoming original series. The topic? The Iran-Contra Affair. For those of you (like me) who are too young to remember, the so-called Iran-Contra Affair was a scandal that occurred during Ronald Reagan’s presidency, in which administration officials conspired to sell weapons to Iran (against whom there was an arms embargo) in order to funnel the profits to a right-wing Nicaraguan army known as the Contras (to whom Congress had forbidden funding). The initial plan was to use said profits to negotiate the release of several hostages held by Hezbollah, but then Colonel Oliver North got involved and devised a plan to use the money to also fund the Contras.

The Void Trailer Pays Tribute to Classic 80s Horror Movies

10 March 2017 8:29 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jessica Biel Anthology Thriller Gets Ordered to Series

18 January 2017 1:02 PM, PST | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Jessica Biel in “Bleeding Heart

Jessica Biel is returning to the small screen. She’s set to topline “The Sinner,” an anthology series that USA Network just ordered to series, the La Times reports. The thriller marks Biel’s first gig as a series regular since she played Mary Camden on the WB/CW’s ensemble family drama “7th Heaven.” Since then, she’s made a career on the big screen and turned up for guest spots on “BoJack Horseman,” “Family Guy,” and most notably, “New Girl.”

“Based on Petra Hammesfahr’s bestselling book of the same name, the first installment of the close-ended crime thriller follows a young mother, played by Biel, who is overcome with a fit of rage and commits an act of violence that she can’t explain,” the source details. Bill Pullman (“The Equalizer”) costars, playing an investigator trying to determine the motive for the crime.

In a statement announcing the series, USA Network President Chris McCumber revealed that the show’s “unique perspective intrigued [the network] from the very beginning.”

The pilot was penned by Derek Simonds (“When We Rise”) and directed by Antonio Campos (“Christine”).

In addition to starring in “The Sinner,” Biel will serve as one of its executive producers, as will her Ocean Films banner partner Michelle Purple.

Biel’s film credits include “A Kind of Murder,” “Hitchcock,” “Total Recall,” “Valentine’s Day,” and “The Illusionist.”

“There are always going to be the roles where you play the arm candy or girlfriend or wife; sometimes those are actually great parts, too, but I think it’s important to fight for the roles that really mean something to you, that say something,” Biel has said. “To tell stories that inspire you. You have to find those parts that are fewer and far between.” It sounds like “The Sinner” is going to offer Biel a solid, meaty — and meaningful — role.

Jessica Biel Anthology Thriller Gets Ordered to Series was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Underworld: Blood Wars Review

10 January 2017 6:33 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Daniel Goodwin

The last time we saw Kate Beckinsale’s blood-sucking, wolf-slaying, blade swishing Selene she was battling a digital were-blob in a car park at the arse end of Underworld: Awakening: the abominable third sequel which belted the franchise into apparent oblivion. Failing to keep her promise of reclaiming the world from Lycans, made during Awakening’s tepid finale, Selene vanished from our screens. Five years later and following a staggering turn in Love and Friendship, Kate Beckinsale returns, back on autopilot, into her comfort zone and to the role that made her famous. While half a decade can’t quite waft away the stench of its putrid predecessor, Underworld: Blood Wars is surprisingly decent and easily the best of the franchise so far.

Elite soldier Selene is living as an outcast with defector/ pseudo beau David (Theo James), hunted by Lycans and the fifteen century old »
