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 »

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 »

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.
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. »
Here's what an unidentified source told British tabloid The Sunday Mirror, claiming that the Barbados native is a huge fan of the James Bond franchise.
"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. She's really excited."
Rihanna made her feature film debut in the 2012 action-adventure Battleship. She also played herself in last year's comedy hit This Is the End and appeared in the documentaries Katy Perry: Part of Me and Bettie Page Reveals All. The actress-singer also lends her voice to DreamWorks Animation's Home, in theaters next March.
It's possible that Eon Productions may also want Rihanna to sing »
Pop star Rihanna is rumored to be making a cameo in the next James Bond movie, according to Ok!.
The British trade claims Eon Productions have approached the 26-year old singer to see whether she'd be interested in making a guest appearance.
Their source says: "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. She’s really excited."
It would mark the singer's third onscreen role following "Battleship" and "This Is The End". No mention is made in the report of Rihanna potentially singing the theme song for the film which begins shooting around year's end. »

“You damn fool kids will never learn,” said the tubby fisherman in The Blair Witch Project. While that plaid-clad chap was referring to the meddlesome antics of three young filmmakers in the woods, his brief mutter still stands true in regards to the activities in most teen horrors today. Which ties in nicely, as a new trailer proves that’s still very much the case in the upcoming horror film, Ouija.
If you haven’t already guessed, the movie involves a gaggle of youngsters who happen upon a Ouija board and attempt to rouse a spirit from the afterlife. Co-written by Stiles White and Juliet Snowden, and directed by the former, it’s guaranteed to hit the spot for audiences venturing to the theatre this Halloween.

Back in July it was reported that Colin Farrell had entered talks with HBO about joining the cast of True Detective for its second season, and now the actor has confirmed his involvement with the critically acclaimed show during an interview with Irish newspaper Sunday World.
“I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited. I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.”
Other names reportedly in the frame for roles in the second season of True Detective include Taylor Kitsch (Battleship), Vince Vaughn (Delivery Man), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Rachel McAdams (About Time), Brit Marling (The Keeping Room), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Jaimie Alexander »

Before sitting down to watch the new Liam Neeson movie, audiences have been prepped to see the weary-faced action star kicking ass with class, thanks to entertaining flicks like “Taken,” “Non-Stop,” and “The Grey.” But, for every “Taken” there’s a “Taken 2,” and if one year the grizzly Irishman can come out with something as forceful as “The Grey,” the following year “Battleship” can sink people’s opinions once more. It’s just not simple to put a finger on the prospects of a new Neeson film, particularly one directed by screenwriter-turned-director Scott Frank. The only previous feature Frank has directed was the overlooked and underrated “The Lookout,” and he's also got “Get Shorty” and “Out Of Sight” under his writing belt, as well as the less memorable “Flight Of The Phoenix.” With this combined pedigree from the actor and writer-director, the two dominant forces behind “A Walk Among The Tombstones, »

Brendan Gleeson is perfectly cast in The Grand Seduction, a comedy drama that aims to send up the postcard image of rural life. Unfortunately, Canadian director Don McKellar falls into his own trap with a storytelling style that wavers between wry cynicism and twee romanticism.
American muscle-head Taylor Kitsch (Battleship, John Carter) loses some of that action hero bulk to play Dr Paul Lewis, but he still looks out of place in a small fishing village where he is forced to act as Gp after getting caught with cocaine at customs. Just the name, Tickle Cove, is enough to conjure a picture of seaside tranquillity, but on the contrary, the fishing business has dried up and its residents need to find an alternative source of revenue »
When it comes to music, these girls have it all. They can sing. They can dance. And they can act — err, wait a minute on the last one. Sadly, a powerful voice, a magnetic personality in interviews, or killer dance moves in music videos doesn’t mean a pop star has what it takes to be an actress. With practice, some do get better. But if their big screen debuts are any precursor, some of them better stick to their main gig and leave the acting to the professionals.
Check out the 10 worst big screen debuts from your favorite female pop stars, including Britney Spears, Rihanna, and Taylor Swift. (Oh yeah, the latter is making her return to the big screen in The Giver, co-starring Meryl Streep, in theaters this weekend.)
Given that so many singers make cameos and small, often uncredited appearances in films, we limited the big screen »

The casting process for True Detective’s second season has become just about as complicated as Rust and Marty’s search for the Yellow King in season one. And if you add in the 21st-century problem of social media—which the Yellow King was not a big fan of—one could argue that it’s an even more complicated puzzle. For months, there have been rumors surrounding the number of leads—two! three! four!—and from there, rumors surrounding who will play those leads—Josh Brolin! Brad Pitt! Jessica Chastain!
At this point, the show’s creator, Nic Pizzolatto, has »

Taylor Kitsch is a solid actor who had a bad run of box office flops that included the likes of John Carter and Battleship. Just because he had a few bombs it doesn't mean he's not talented. I enjoyed him in Friday Night Lights and one of his more recent films, Lone Survivor. According to The Wrap he has recently been offered the lead role in The Raid remake, which is being directed by Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3).
If cast, the actor will join Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), who confirmed himself that he was going to be in the movie. I really wish this remake wasn't happening, I just don't see how it can be as badass and hardcore as what we've seen in the original films. The cast they are putting together though is pretty solid so far.

Hollywood’s upcoming remake of Gareth Evans’ “The Raid” already has a director in Patrick Hughes, who is coming off “The Expendables 3,” along with a screenwriter in Brad Ingelsby, but it still needs a star. Is that Taylor Kitsch? Word from The Wrap is that the “Battleship,” “John Carter,” and most recently, “Lone Survivor” star has been offered the lead in the upcoming movie, but apparently there’s a chance Kitsch might end up doing HBO’s critically acclaimed “True Detective” instead — or do both, one after another. The remake will closely follow Evans’ original, following “an elite Indonesian Swat that gets trapped inside a building run by a vicious gangster and his thugs.” Much ass kicking and killing commences. It’s basically also the same premise for the “Dredd” remake. The 2011 film, originally titled “The Raid: Redemption,” cemented the international presence of Evans and his star, Iko Uwais. »
There a lot of movies I hear or read people rave about, and when I finally watch them I'm underwhelmed.
"The Raid" is not one of those movies. It's every bit the thrill ride people say it is; so it's no surprise Hollywood wants to remake it.
I'm not inherently against remakes, there are several I like quite a bit. "The Departed" and "Last House on the Left" are great examples of remakes that are equal to, and in many ways surpass, the original films. That being said, I'll try to have an open mind watching the American remake of "The Raid," but I'm not terribly optimistic at this point.
The Wrap is reporting that Taylor Kitsch has been offered the lead role. I've seen Kitsch in "Savages", "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", "Battleship" and "John Carter of Mars," and I wasn't exactly impressed.
What so you think? Can Kitsch pull off the role? »

The Wrap is reporting that Taylor Kitsch (Battleship, John Carter) has been offered the leading role in the upcoming English-language remake of "The Raid," which will be directed by Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3). "The Raid" tells the story of an elite DEA Fast team that becomes trapped in a tenement run by a notorious drug lord, his two highly-violent martial arts killers, and a personal militia armed with machetes and machine guns. Stranded on the 6th floor with no way out, the team must fight their way through the city's worst to survive their mission. Kitsch is also up for a major part in the second season of HBO's "True Detective," which may create a scheduling conflict for "The Raid." Stay tuned. »
It wasn’t long ago that Taylor Kitsch was expected to be the next big box office draw. 2012 saw the Friday Night Lights star headline three major films in the form of John Carter, Battleship, and Savages. Unfortunately for the actor, all of those projects failed to connect with audiences, and his career stalled before it even really started.
However, his past failures haven’t caused him to give up hope just yet. A new report suggests that Kitsch is being offered the lead role in the upcoming English-language remake of the action film The Raid - while rumors continue to circulate about his potential involvement with season two of the HBO crime drama True Detective.
The Wrap‘s sources are saying that Expendables 3 ...
