The bad boy has become a mature man. Alex Pettyfer describes his perfect date in the March 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan U.K., and he seems more at ease than ever. "Guys are as sensitive as women, I think," the actor says. "Men and women are not that different—we just want to feel loved as well. I don't believe in the Mars/Venus nonsense." Over the years, Pettyfer has been romantically linked to his I Am Number Four costar Dianna Agron and his Magic Mike costar Riley Keough. When it comes to wooing a woman, the movie star says he prefers conventional courting methods. "I really like the traditional movie-and-dinner date," he shares. "There are all those excited new feelings »
Last Friday, Deadline broke news that author James Frey’s latest Ya novel Endgame was part of a bidding war. Later I reported that the result was a movie deal upwards of $2 million with Fox, which came after the publishing deal with sister company HarperCollins, and Google part of the mix. This for a Hunger Games-style series. So here are more details about what happened for the author of I Am Number Four and A Million Little Pieces. HarperCollins got this started by buying U.S. and UK English-language rights to a trilogy of novels Frey writes with Nils Johnson-Shelton, first of which is to be published on October 7, 2014. The book already has its foreign publishers lined up for a simultaneous release around the world in over 30 languages. Fox signed on quickly — Warner Bros was trolling but never got to make a bid — for the movie rights, the first »

Will Smith is undeniably one of the most famous and popular actors on the planet, however the Fresh Prince Of Bel-air star seems to be going through a slight rough patch in his career of late. Aside from the passable Men In Black 3 Smith hasn’t starred in an enjoyable film since 2007′s I Am Legend, and i’m sure many of you will be quick to forget last years After Earth.
Now Smith is circling a new project that sounds incredibly interesting called Selling Time, a film that 20th Century Fox has been attempting to get out off the ground since the early 2000′s. D.J. Caruso has also just signed on to direct the film should it finally make it out of the realms of development hell. For those of you that don’t know, Caruso directed the phenomenal Disturbia (one of my personal favourite films), lackluster Eagle »

D.J. Caruso, who impressed when he directing Shia Labeouf in both Disturbia and Eagle Eye, will helm Selling Time, which is intended to star Will Smith. While Smith has never officially said he'd star in it, he's made it clear he'd really like to play the lead role...for over a decade. This movie has been in the works with Fox since 2001. SOooo, what is the big deal? Well, Selling Time is about a guy who sells chunks of his life in exchange to get to relive the worst day of his life over and over again in hopes that he can stop a tragedy from happening.
Caruso also directed I Am Number Four.

A couple of months ago we heard that Will Smith might be starring in a new film for 20th Century Fox titled Selling Time. Now, Deadline is reporting that the studio has found a director for their supernatural thriller in D.J. Caruso (I Am Number Four).
If you haven’t been keeping up, the film follows a man (Smith) who is able to relive and change the worst day of his life but in return, he must take seven years off his life expectancy. As many have noted before, it sounds a bit like a sci-fi version of Groundhog Day and with Smith headlining, it could turn out to be a hit.
As for Caruso, he’s not the most bankable name out there but he has delivered some fairly entertaining films in the past, most notably the Shia Labeouf thriller Eagle Eye and the Al Pacino/Matthew McConaughey starring Two for the Money, »

Director D.J. Caruso (I Am Number Four) is now attached to direct the supernatural thriller Selling Time. Scripted by Dan McDermott, the story follows a man who is given a chance to relive the worst day of his life in order to avert a tragedy in exchange for seven years off his life expectancy. It sounds a bit like a mash-up of In Time and Seven Pounds. That last film is a fitting comparison, since Will Smith is still circling the lead role, although there is no official commitment on his part at this time. Caruso will also oversee a new draft of the script by McDermott for 20th Century Fox. (Via Deadline) »

Exclusive: Things are coming back around again for Selling Time, the supernatural thriller at 20th Century Fox. D.J. Caruso is signing on to direct, and he will oversee a new draft by Dan McDermott that is being written in hopes that Will Smith will star in the film. John Davis and Jennifer Klein will produce with McDermott. Though he still has not committed to starring, Smith has long been interested in playing the lead role in the thriller about a man who sells chunks of his life in an attempt to relive the worst day of his life so that he can change a tragedy. I feel like I have relived this project several times; I first wrote about it when McDermott sold it as a spec to Fox 2000 while he was president of DreamWorks Television in 2001. Smith has been intrigued for almost that long. There have been numerous incarnations »

Upcoming movie Kite is based on Yasuomi Umetsu's anime that is known for its graphic depictions of sex and violence. Samuel L. Jackson plays Karl Aker, a corrupt detective and India Eisley (The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Underworld: Awakening) plays Sawa, a young girl who is out to track down those responsible for killing her father with the help of Aker. Callan McAuliffe (I Am Number Four, The Great Gatsby) co-stars. Ralph Ziman (Gangster's Paradise: Jerusalema, The Zookeeper) took over as director after the death of David R. Ellis, who worked with Jackson on Snakes On A Plane. Kite was filmed in Johannesburg and the first trailer is embedded below. ...

Our first look at Ralph Ziman’s adaptation of Kite has come online in the form of a trailer and several clips. Based on the anime of the same name, the story stars India Eisley (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) as Sawa, an orphaned girl who is trained by her father’s partner (Samuel L. Jackson) to be a vigilante assassin. The anime is notable for its extreme violence, and Ziman appears to have retained that aspect along with a stylized look that should give the adaptation some nice pop. Hit the jump to check out the trailer and clips. The film co-stars Callan McAuliffe (I Am Number Four) and currently doesn’t have a release date, but presumably it will hit theaters sometime this year. Via Bloody Disgusting. »

There are a lot of movies coming in 2014, but one you might have unfortunately forgotten about is "Kite." Why should you keep this one on your radar? Well, it's an adaptation of an anime that is renowned for it's rather graphic sexuality, and not only does Samuel L. Jackson star in the movie, he's a big fan of the material as well, which hopefully means this version will retain some of the spirit of the source material. At any rate, you'll be able to judge for yourself, as nine minutes from the movie—a trailer followed by a lengthy clip—have emerged by surprise online, presumably ahead of schedule, considering there isn't even a release date yet for "Kite." The film is based on the comic by Yasuomi Umetsu and directed by Ralph Ziman. India Eisley (“The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” “Underworld: Awakening”) and Callan McAuliffe ("The Great Gatsby, »
