Channing Tatum set for Evil Knievel movie

14 September 2015 10:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Darren Aronofsky is taking over from Peter Berg, and directing Channing Tatum as Evil Knievel.

The famous motorcycle stuntman Evil Knievel is still heading to the movies, as has been rumoured for some time, but there's been a sizeable change behind the scenes.

The movie, which is being set up at Sony, once had director Peter Berg (Battleship, Friday Night Lights) attached to direct. But after signing on the dotted line around six months ago, Berg has now moved on from the film. Reasons for that have not been disclosed, but it's not like Berg is shy of projects right now.

In his place? That'd be Black Swan and Pi helmer Darren Aronofsky, who The Tracking Board has revealed is on board for the new movie. Scott Silver has penned the latest draft of the screenplay.

As for casting, Channing Tatum is set to take on the lead role, and »

Ronda Rousey Will Star in 'Road House' Remake

9 September 2015 11:22 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Okay, so it's not Captain Marvel. But it's still pretty darn cool. Champion Ufc fighter Ronda Rousey is taking over the Patrick Swayze role in the upcoming remake of Road House. The original cult classic exploded onto the scene in 1989, and will now get a proper reboot. MGM is currently meeting with screenwriters, with production planned for 2016.

The original Road House is a non-stop action fest that featured Patrick Swayze as a bouncer. He is hired to clean up and protect one of the rowdiest, loudest bars in all of redneck Missouri. Swayze plays Dalton as a serious bad-ass with a degree in philosophy, which comes in handy when dealing with the drunk and confrontational denizens of The Double Deuce. Though, his quite demeanor and calm attitude are put to the test when a corrupt businessman moves into take over the nearby town, with the bar being his prized trophy. »

Box Office Sabermetrics: The Taylor Kitsch Syndrome Claims a New Victim

17 August 2015 8:27 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Box Office Sabermetrics is a weekly column that will attempt to apply the statistical analysis Sabermetrics, used in Baseball, to the box office results each weekend.

There are a few things of note going on in the top 10 this past weekend, first and foremost that Straight Outta Compton just made a ton of money. Like, nearly-twice-its-budget-just-domestically ton of money. It’s set the new domestic box office record for an R-Rated opening in August. That’s great for many reasons: a bright future for its young stars, F. Gary Gray is relevant again, and hopefully this will encourage more high-profile films about the rap and hip-hop community.

But looking down the list, something is amiss with the low receipts for The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which means that’s two straight franchise starters that have bombed for star Armie Hammer. A very disconcerting question arises: Is Armie Hammer suffering from the Taylor Kitsch syndrome? »

Liam Neeson Is Circling The Role Of General MacArthur In Operation Chromite

12 August 2015 1:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Star of the Taken franchise, Liam Neeson, could be about to sign on to portray another man with a very particular skill-set – this time as U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur, in the upcoming movie, Operation Chromite. Set in 1950 during the Korean War, the film will centre on a group of Korean soldiers participating in MacArthur’s planned military operation, which represented a significant turning point in the conflict.

The Korean War was fought from 1950-1953, though the consequences of the clash are still playing out today. The United Nations stepped in with military force when North Korea invaded South Korea in 1950, and General MacArthur was tasked with leading the United Nations Command in the country, in addition to the job he was already doing – overseeing the occupation of Japan. The five-star General planned the amphibious attack – which would become known as the Battle Of Incheon, but was codenamed Operation »

Liam Neeson Joins Korea’s ‘Operation Chromite’ As General MacArthur

12 August 2015 2:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Busan — Liam Neeson is play the role of U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur in “Operation Chromite” (a.k.a. “Incheon Landing Operation”), a Korean-made blockbuster set during the Korean War of the early 1950s.

The film is to be produced by South Korea’s Taewon Entertainment. It will be directed by Lee Jae-han, and scripted by Lee Man-hee, who both have war film experience with hit “71: Into the Fire”.

Although Chinese movies are increasingly incorporating Hollywood talent, it is rare in Korea. Neeson has had a career revival following box office success with “The Grey,” “Taken,” “Battleship” and “The Lego Movie.”

“Operation Chromite” focuses on the heroic Korean troopers who carried out the covert “X-ray” operation that preceded the Incheon landing operation in the Yellow Sea. The landing shifted the momentum of the Korean War.

Boston Marathon Thriller Patriots' Day Lands A Gritty Action Director

7 August 2015 7:31 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There are no less than three movies in development about the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing that killed three people and injured more than 260 others. When movies with similar stories come out close to each other, the first one to the theater usually wins the box office battle, and now the Mark Wahlberg-produced Patriots. Day has taken a big step forward, hiring a director well-suited to the material. Variety reports that CBS Films has hired Battleship director Peter Berg to helm their Boston Marathon Bombing picture. Patriots. Day is said to focus more on the manhunt for the bombers and is described as a thriller, something Berg is well suited to. This won.t be the first time that he has worked from a real life story, either, as Lone Survivor, Friday Night Lights, and the upcoming Deepwater Horizon are all based on true events. Patriots.

Director Peter Berg Slams Caitlyn Jenner’s ESPYs Award

16 July 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Updated: Clear eyes, full heart? Not so much.

While Caitlyn Jenner’s acceptance of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at Wednesday night’s ESPYs drew cheers from the crowd, “Friday Night Lights” creator Peter Berg was evidently jeering.

The “Lone Survivor” director shared a meme on Instagram, circulated by the Facebook account Main Stream Media Sponsor Boycotts, slamming Jenner’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award win. The image contains side-by-side photos of Jenner and U.S. Army veteran Gregory D. Gadson.

“One man traded 2 legs for the freedom of the other to trade 2 balls for 2 boobs. Guess which man made the cover of Vanity Fair, was praised for his courage by President Obama and is to be honored with the ‘Arthur Ashe Courage Award’ by Espn?” the text read. “Yup,” Berg captioned his post, simply.

Later on Thursday, however, Berg backtracked after fielding considerable criticism on the Web. In another Instagram post, »

'Mr. Robot' Star Rami Malek on Making an 'Indie Film' on USA Network and Its 'Iconic' Potential

25 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

USA Network isn't the USA Network you know. Not anymore. Not after "Mr. Robot" premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, taking home an audience award before screening at the Tribeca Film Festival and SeriesFest and getting a sneak peak online for anyone with an internet connection. The thriller from creator Sam Esmail bucks just about every association viewers have made with the NBC Universal cable network, ditching the blue skies and episodic storytelling for black hoodies cloaked by night and a gripping, serialized character study.  At its center is Rami Malek, a name you may not know yet but a face you're sure to recognize — and remember liking. Malek, despite his young age of 34, has appeared in everything from critically-acclaimed miniseries ("The Pacific") to breakout indie darlings ("Short Term 12") to big-time studio blockbusters ("Battleship"). Now, he's taking his talents to USA, a decision he had to deliberate on before signing. »

Punching the Numbers: Where Liam Neeson Lies in the History of “Hollywood’s Most Bankable Action Star” Runs

22 June 2015 7:57 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Liam Neeson is Hollywood’s most bankable action star. That’s a statement of fact, but how do we know it is fact? How much more bankable is he than others? First off, we take a look at the box office returns for his action films and match them against the budgets and see what sort of averages and trends pop up.

1st Disclosure: I am not a sabermetrics genius, I’m just a guy that likes to write about action movies. If somebody out there who is a sabermetrics genius saw this and said “There’s a better way to do this.”, it would only bring me joy to see my amateur work improved upon.

2nd Disclosure: I won’t be including results of The Grey and A Walk Among the Tombstones in this pool of data, while both were marketed as action vehicles and have moments of action in them, »

Sure, there are plenty of reasons why Tim Riggins has your heart, but actor Taylor Kitsch is just as sexy off screen, too.

Two new TV spots for True Detective season 2

8 June 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

HBO has debuted two new TV spots in lieu of the release of the anticipated second season of True Detective, which airs in just over three weeks time.

The new season moves to California from the Deep South, and sees a whole new cast involved, including Colin Farrell (Total Recall), Vince Vaughn (Dodgeball), Rachel McAdams (The Vow), Taylor Kitsch (Battleship) and Kelly Reilly (Flight). Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 3-6) directs the first two episodes of the new season.

Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective in the all-industrial City of Vinci, La County. Vince Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his life’s work, while his wife and closest ally (Kelly Reilly), struggles with his choices and her own. »

Liam Neeson's Top 10 Roles

7 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Liam Neeson’s career has come full circle.  

After his acting debut in 1978, at a commanding 6’4” Neeson found a niche for himself in action flicks like Excalibur, Krull and even Darkman in 1990 before transitioning into the seriously dramatic roles he was synonymous with throughout most of the 90s and early 2000s: Husbands and Wives, Schindler’s List, Nell and even as Jean Valjean in the non-musical Les Miserables. Sure he dabbled in action and blockbusters along the way, but Neeson was reborn as the latest action hero in 2008 with his role in the sleeper hit Taken.   

Spawning not one but two sequels, Taken launched the next chapter in the Irish actor’s career and leading to roles in The A-Team and Battleship. The actor returned to his father-on-a-mission role as Bryan Mills in Taken 3 once again this year. The film sees Mills chasing after the bad guy, except this time, »

See How Much the "Entourage" Cast Has Changed Since the Show's Premiere

4 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's hard to believe it's been 11 years since we first met big screen heartthrob Vincent Chase (Adrien Grenier) and his boys, Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), Eric "E" Murphy (Kevin Connolly) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) on HBO's "Entourage." And, who can forget our favorite hot-headed agent, Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven)?! The eight-season series was filled to the brim with celebrity cameos, hot Hollywood nightclubs and a whole lot of partying -- and we loved every minute of it. While we finally get to see these boys back together on-screen in the "Entourage" movie on June 5, toofab is taking a look at what Vinny and his pack-mates have been up to since the show premiered over a decade ago in 2004. Grenier was probably best known for starring in the movie "Drive Me Crazy" before he nabbed his "Entourage" role. He later co-starred with Anne Hathaway in "The Devil Wears Prada" and directed two documentaries, »

Fantastic Four: 8 Reasons You Shouldn’t Write It Off Just Yet

1 June 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Every year during summer blockbuster season there’s always one movie that seems a little out of place. Despite a big budget, and an even bigger name cast, they just don’t seem to build much buzz or excitement. An obvious example would be 2012’s Battleship, which was a mega budget would-be franchise starter with Liam Neeson and Rihanna, but all the explosions in the world couldn’t get people jazzed about the unholy fusion of a board game with a Transformers movie. Battleship sank real quick. Pun completely intended.

And the black sheep of summer 2015 looks to be Josh Trank’s reboot of the Fantastic Four. The film was kept under wraps for a suspiciously long time and reports of a rocky shoot, huge changes to the comic lore and director/producer fights have left fans worried. But despite this there’s plenty of reason to »

'Point Break' Remake Highlights a Problem with Today's Blockbuster Films & No, It's Not the Story

29 May 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The problem with the new Point Break remake has nothing to do with your inability to grow-up. It's doing nothing to your childhood unless you still identify with a man and his mullet. Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 original is still a great film for those of us that saw it when it was released and the fact it was remade into The Fast and The Furious ten years later and is now being remade just shy of 25 years after its original release simply means they're looking to bring a similar story to a new kind of audience, and I'm actually interested in the story they are aiming to tell. As was evident in the trailer and described in the film's plot synopsis, the gang of criminal rogues led by a man named Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez) are killing whoever may be in their way toward "liberating" the world's riches, sending the global economy into a tailspin. »

Cannes: After Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ Niels Juul Seeks to Bring Other Cecchi Gori Properties to the Bigscreen (Exclusive)

21 May 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back from the Taiwan set of Martin Scorsese’s “Silence,” which just wrapped shooting, Niels Juul, CEO of L.A.-based Cecchi Gori Media, is now shifting his energies to several other projects he has in various stages, including pics with Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Kafka as central characters.

“It’s been an amazing experience,” Juul (pictured with Scorsese) enthused about “Silence,” on which he is an executive producer, having been instrumental in  bringing to the screen the eponymous Shusaku Endo novel about God’s silence in the face of human suffering. Cecchi Gori holds the movie rights.

“Everyone has been bending over backwards to get this amazing movie made. Everyone taking a [pay] cut; everyone basically working for scale,” he recounted. “We are all making an amazing effort to make an independent $51 million movie.”

It’s been tough working “under extremely hard conditions,” Juuls said. But “Marty has come in on budget and on time, »

How the year 2012 helped redefine blockbuster movies

20 May 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

2012: the year the movie universe sparked, Universal struggled, and young adult adaptations really took off...

The big blockbusters of summer 2011 were the ones that followed fairly straightforward rules. The majority of them were sequels in linear movie franchises - Harry Potter, Transformers, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Fast & Furious - and it felt for the most part like a template was being followed.

Sure, there were surprises. Bridesmaids broke through and proved to be a massive R-rated hit. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, came through unscathed - and in fine shape - from its reboot, whilst Jj Abrams took us temporarily back to the 1980s with Super 8. But other than that, the pattern was set: the big, pre-ordained films took the lion's share of the cash, and regular sequels were the order of the day.

The signs of change were there in 2011, of course. Thor was a bigger hit than most were expecting, »
