Peter Berg to direct high-minded drug cartel story 'Hunt for El Chapo'

19 November 2014 9:11 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Patrick Radden Keefe's New Yorker story "The Hunt for El Chapo" is a terrifying, bizarre, and occasionally funny look at modern drug trafficking. Delving into the lavish world of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the leader of Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, Keefe finds a quirky character pulling strings for a murderous bunch who love their Instagram. The DEA manhunt for Loera, that ended this past February, lasted a decade. The best kingpins can live a life of luxury and still avert paramilitary. Loera was the best of the best. Those are the types that get movies made about their lives. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Universal has picked up the rights to "El Chapo," for its "Lone Survivor" director Peter Berg to helm. After that gritty military war film earned more than franchise wannabe "Battleship," the studio is in a position to let Berg do whatever the heck he wants. He’ll »

Mark Wahlberg confirmed as The Six Billion Dollar Man

6 November 2014 11:22 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Six Million Dollar Man is now The Six Billion Dollar Man. And he's Mark Wahlberg, too....

The big screen take on The Six Million Dollar Man - which has been upgraded to The Six Billion Dollar Man - is pressing ahead, and it's now been revealed that Mark Wahlberg is set to take the title role.

Using the 1970s TV show as its inspiration, The Six Billion Dollar Man will see Wahlberg taking on the role of Steve Austin, a former astronaut who is seriously injured in a plane crash. Yet he's saved by doctors, who give him new bionic legs, a bionic arm, and a bionic eye. From there, he becomes an agent at the Office Of Scientific Intelligence.

The things you have to do to get a job.

The Six Billion Dollar Man is being directed by Peter Berg, who steered Wahlberg to a hit with Lone Survivor. »

'Lone Survivor' creative team signs on for 'Six Billion Dollar Man' reboot

6 November 2014 12:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

While I wasn't the biggest fan of "Lone Survivor," I was impressed with the way they managed to turn it into a genuine hit. It's a pretty stark and brutal story, but Mark Wahlberg worked overtime to help sell the movie, and it's obvious that it came from a place of real passion for him. Peter Berg has such a strange filmography at this point that I've basically given up trying to guess what he'll do next. I always walk in hoping for him to put it all together as well as he does in films like "Friday Night Lights" or "The Rundown," because I think he's got the chops. I like that he's done some of everything at this point. Looking at how he shoots action in "Hancock," for example, or even in "Lone Survivor," he's got a sense for how to build a sequence. I just think he's »

Watch: Here's What a 'Call of Duty' Movie Would Look Like if It Starred Taylor Kitsch

3 November 2014 12:15 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Peter Berg and Taylor Kitsch have enlisted for another tour of duty in the latest commercial for Activision’s video game juggernaut Call of Duty. The duo, who previously collaborated on Battleship and Lone Survivor, are back in battle in this new commercial for the game. As expected, it’s jam-packed with action and spectacle as Kitsch’s character leads the new game’s protagonist through a series of harrowing fights in a futuristic Lagos designed to show off what players can expect when Advanced Warfare hits the local GameStop next week. Kitsch isn’t the only star featured in the new advertisement – Gone Girl’s Emily Ratajkowski also makes an appearance in one of the clip’s funnier moments. Activision has a “go...

Fox planning Channing Tatum 'Gambit' film

31 October 2014 5:19 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Fox is putting some kinetic energy into a new Gambit movie, with Channing Tatum set to star as the card-slinging mutant, sources confirm to EW. The 21 Jump Street star has long been linked to the character, who has the power to imbue any object with a dose of explosive power. (His weapon of choice is a deck of playing cards.) He gave an interview to MTV stating, “Gambit’s the only X-Man I ever loved. He’s the most un-x-Man X-Man that’s ever been an X-Man … he loves women and drinkin’ and smokin’.” The actor and the character also »

Fox moving forward with Gambit movie, writer hired

31 October 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The X-Men spin-off Gambit, starring Channing Tatum, press ahead. A writer's now been hired to pen the script...

2016 looks set to be a big year for Fox's X-Men movie universe. It's got the Deadpool movie scheduled for February, and then in the summer, Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse will debut.

It's in Apocalypse that we'll first get to see Gambit as played by Channing Tatum on the big screen. And that appearance is set to be a springboard for a Gambit standalone movie, that will reintroduce the character first played in the movies by Taylor Kitsch (in X-Men Origins: Wolverine).

Fox is moving the Gambit standalone project forward too, and it's now hired a screenwriter to put a draft of the film together. The writer in question is Josh Zetumer, who co-penned the script for the RoboCop reboot that was released earlier this year.

Channing Tatum is definitely on board to play Gambit. »

30 October 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Sure, there are plenty of reasons why Tim Riggins has your heart, but actor Taylor Kitsch is just as sexy off screen, too. The 33-year-old Canadian actor first won over fans as tough, hunky football hero Riggins on Friday Night Lights, and over the past few years, he's been on the big screen thanks to movies like John Carter, Battleship, and Savages. Most recently, he appeared in The Normal Heart, and he's rumored to be returning to the small screen with a buzzed-about role on True Detective. In any case, now seems like the perfect time to look back at some of his sexiest snaps from over the years, including a mix of red carpet appearances and crazy-hot magazine editorials. Brace yourself - there are some really, really good ones. Source: Entertainment Weekly »

Final Update, Monday, 2:25 Pm: The finally tallies are in with Universal’s horror film Ouija and the Keanu Reeves’ actioner John Wick winning the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, respectively. St. Vincent, which went wide, did okay for The Weinstein Co. With terrific exit polling, it should get some more play. In their second weekends, Sony/Qed’s Fury held well (-44%) as did Fox’s animated The Book of Life (-41%). Relativity’s The Best of Me wasn’t as lucky (-54%). Noteworthy: We’ve included the grosses for the Bollywood heist film Happy New Yea from our own sources as Rentrak did not report for it. There are still no official numbers for the the film which we know tallied biggest opening weekend in Indian Cinema history (per its producer). Strange as to why they are not touting the numbers and reporting them as soon as possible, but »

‘Tetris: The Movie’ – 5 Acclaimed Directors Who Could Knock It Out of the Park

1 October 2014 12:41 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Threshold Entertainment has announced a Tetris movie is in the works, much to the chagrin of people everywhere with taste. Industry skeptics question if the movie will ever get made, but we figured it might be fun to play along anyway. Also read: Lionsgate Ups ‘Change of Control’ Threshold Considering the flop that was 2012's “Battleship,” we understand why many think another game-based movie is an awful idea. But Threshold was the company that adapted “Mortal Kombat” into a somewhat serviceable flick, so who's to say they couldn't do even better with a video game even more people enjoy? Also »

Major Pop Starlet Approached For 'Bond 24' Cameo

1 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

If The Sunday Mirror is to be trusted, the producers of the James Bond franchise have approached Rihanna for a small role in their next film. Nothing is known about the role at this time, though it could amount to little more than a cameo. What is known, according their source, is that she's definitely interested.

According to the paper's source, "Rihanna is a big fan of the Bond films and has always loved the idea of appearing in one. She didn't even need to think about it, she knows she wants to do it." The source asserts, "She's really excited."

This wouldn't be her first foray into appearing in a blockbuster film, considering she has 2012's Battleship on her resumé.

One possibility that the report doesn't mention is that she could just have been asked to provide the film with its signature theme song. Bond films are known for »

Rihanna linked with James Bond 24

30 September 2014 11:05 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joining Daniel Craig in the next 007 movie? It might just be Rihanna, according to a new tabloid rumour.

Ah, the James Bond movie casting rumours. We've missed these. With production on the new 007 adventure set to begin in the next month or two, the only faces we know for definite returning are Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear and Naomie Harris. As for new names to the world of Bond? We're expecting announcements in due course, but they haven't been forthcoming yet.

Rumour of the day, then, is that Rihanna - last seen on the big screen in 2012's Battleship - is being lined up for a role.

It's come from a tabloid source, the Daily Mirror, so liberal doses of salt probably help in digesting this one. The Mirror, however, reports that she's been approached by the Bond team about taking a role in the new movie. »
