10 Things You Didn’t Know About Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

16 October 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

PhamousFotos/ /Splash News/Corbis

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s name may not roll off the tongue, but you’ll instantly recognise him as the slick, arrogant Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones. He has shot to the next level after the show took off, yet he’s still managed to maintain a low-profile away from the set, but how does he do it?

The 45-year-old actor has featured in Oblivion (2013), Mama (2013), Kingdom Of Heaven (2005), and The Other Woman (2014) making some famous friends along the way and picking up some fascinating anecdotes throughout his time in the spotlight…


10. He’s Danish Magnolia Pictures

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was born on 27th July 1970 in Rudkøbing, Denmark and was raised in a village of around just 40 people, a far cry away from the glitz, glam, and blaring lights of showbiz and celebrity culture. He was mainly raised by his mother after she split from Nikolaj’s father when he was young. »

Gran Turismo: new writers board the movie

4 October 2015 10:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Gran Turismo continues its journey to the big screen, with Oblivion and Tron: Legacy's Joseph Kosinski behind the steering wheel...

Plans remain active for a film based on the hugely successful Gran Turismo series of videogames. This is a project that's been active for a few years now, with little sign of firm progress. But presumably with one eye on the megabucks that the Fast & Furious movies have been generating, Sony is pushing this one forward.

Previously, Watchmen screenwriter Alex Tse had been working on a script for a Gran Turismo film. The latest, though, is that Jon and Erich Hoeber, who penned Red, will be tackling the screenplay.

Furthermore, Joseph Kosinski, director of Oblivion and Tron: Legacy, is helming this one. When Kosinski joined the film, the story was set to centre on a videogamer who became a racing car driver. There may well have been a change of direction there, »

Gran Turismo movie adaptation gets new writers

2 October 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

An adaptation of the massively successful Gran Turismo game franchise has taken a step closer to becoming a reality with the news that two writers have signed on to pen the script, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Jon and Erich Hoeber have been brought on by Sony to help bring the game to the big screen. Plot details are underwraps at present, but the film is set to “play with the conceit of a gamer-turned-racer.”

The writing duo have had plenty of experience in the action genre, with work on both Red films as well as Battleship and the upcoming The Last Witch Hunter, which stars Vin Diesel, Rose Leslie, Elijah Wood and Michael Caine.

Joseph Kosinski, the director who brought Tron: Legacy and Oblivion to the screen, is helming the film.

Since the game first debuted in 1997 on Playstation, Gran Turismo has sold over 70 million copies worldwide, making it »

Red Writers To Pen Sony’s Big Screen Adaptation Of Gran Turismo

2 October 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The next few years is going to be very interesting for video game adaptations. Hitman: Agent 47 didn’t go down too well earlier this year, so all eyes will be on Assassin’s Creed in 2016 to see if it can break the curse and help make video game movies just as popular as comic book ones.

Need for Speed was brought to the big screen with mixed results not too long ago, and now Sony are looking to turn Gran Turismo into a racing franchise which may just end up giving Fast and Furious a run for its money.

Whether or not that happens remains to be seen, but it has been revealed today that Red writers Jon and Erich Hoeber are set to pen the screenplay. Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion, Tron: Legacy) is still attached to direct and is expected to work with the bothers on the movie. Plot »

Journey to the West gets a Western update in ‘Monkey’

15 September 2015 3:56 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Abstract Entertainment and Eracme Entertainment have announced a new major motion picture, entitled Monkey, based on the beloved Chinese story Journey to the West. While it has been portrayed in previous productions in traditional settings, Monkey reimagines the story 4000 years after the original. A contemporary global action movie, Monkey begins when an unimaginable evil is once again threatening the world, bringing the lead character, the Monkey King, and his loyal friends back to save mankind. The film will be co-financed by Eracme Entertainment.

Said Producers Mike Bundlie and Barry Levine:

There has been a rush to bring western-originated movies to the Chinese market. Monkey reverses that and will be the first English language film focused on introducing a Chinese tale to the international audience in a contemporary setting. In the same way that European mythology made a successful transition from period-based films to modern tentpoles, Monkey opens the door »

First Look: Steve Coogan Stars in ‘Shepherds and Butchers’ (Exclusive)

10 September 2015 2:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Variety has been given the exclusive first image from “Shepherds and Butchers,” which stars Steve Coogan. WestEnd Films is handling international sales and will be showing a first promo of the film to buyers at the Toronto Film Festival.

Coogan, who starred in, co-wrote and produced the Oscar-nominated “Philomena,” plays hot-shot lawyer John Weber in “Shepherds and Butchers.” Weber faces his biggest test when he agrees to defend a prison guard who has killed seven men. What ensues is a compelling charge against the death penalty itself.

The drama, which is directed by Oliver Schmitz (“Life,” “Above All”), also stars Andrea Riseborough (“Birdman,” “Oblivion”), and introduces young actor Garion Dowds. The film, which is produced by Anant Singh and Brian Cox for Distant Horizon and Videovision Entertainment, is in post-production.

‘Monkey King’ Film to Bring Chinese Fable to America (Exclusive)

4 September 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hoping to turn the traditional West-to-East flow of intellectual property on its head, a new Chinese-American partnership has unveiled plans to bring a blockbuster retelling of the traditional Chinese myth of the Monkey King to English-language film screens.

Los Angeles-based Abstract Entertainment will join Eracme Entertainment of China in reimagining the story of the mythical monkey, born from stone, who takes on the magical powers of many transforming creatures.

While the character was first introduced in 16th century China in the novel “Journey to the West,” the producers believe that it will translate to modern audiences around the world, with the characters re-created through the sensibility of screenwriter Christopher Yost (of the “Thor” movies) and designed with direction from Richard Taylor, who created the imagery for “Lord of the Rings.”

“There has been a rush to bring Western-originated movies to the Chinese market,” said producers Mike Bundlie and Barry Levine, »

Mega Man Is Getting His Own Movie

3 September 2015 2:12 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Considering that more than 30 million copies of the various Mega Man games have been sold, it.s safe to say that there are quite a few fans out there. While it.s been reported before, even fairly recently as an animated series, it.s starting to look like we.re getting a Mega Man movie. According to The Tracking Board, 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment have joined forces to bring the fan-favorite video game to life, and they have kicked off the development process in earnest. Chernin has a strong track record with action-heavy science fiction, like the Tom Cruise-starring Oblivion, and both Rise and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, among others. That.s one reason for fans to be optimistic about this adaptation. Peter Chernin, the namesake of the company, will produce Mega Man, while David Ready (Red) and Michael Finfer will oversee the operations. »

2 September 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The centrepiece of Panasonic's Ifa press conference was the stunning 65-inch 4K Oled Viera TX-65CZ950 television.

Pronouncing its full name may be a mouthful, but the set comes fully approved by Hollywood and promises to shine thanks to the inclusion of Panasonic's 4K Pro tech.

Oblivion cinematographer Mike Sowa was on hand to sing the TV's praises on stage at the Germany event, hailing its industry-standard colour reproduction.

"My world of visual storytelling is based around colour accuracy and the need for a display that complements the creative vision," he said.

"Panasonic has engineered their newest 4K Pro Oled TV to a standard that I would only expect in professional displays."

Panasonic is yet to announce pricing or a release date for the TX-65CZ950, but don't expect it to come cheap. »

How Jack Reacher 2 Will Separate Itself From The Mission: Impossible Movies

24 August 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Tom Cruise currently is riding high. After tepid reactions to such recent outputs as Rock of Ages, Oblivion and Jack Reacher, the action star once again has a bona fide hit with Mission: Impossible . Rogue Nation. You might assume that Ed Zwick, the director preparing to shoot Cruise.s Jack Reacher 2, would be looking at Christopher McQuarrie.s action-packed sequel and figuring what elements he can copy. Actually, the opposite is happening.   Zwick is doing press for his upcoming chess drama Pawn Sacrifice, and spoke to Collider about his plans for Jack Reacher 2, which he.ll begin filming later this year. Instead of borrowing from Mission: Impossible -- which made headlines by hanging Tom Cruise off the side of a moving airplane . Zwick explained how the Reacher movies have to be different, saying: It.s going to be very grounded. The emotions are grounded. The action is grounded. »

19 August 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...


One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

Jack Reacher Sequel To Start Shooting In November

12 August 2015 5:06 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Jack Reacher, like Oblivion and Edge of Tomorrow, didn't quite do the business expected of its megastar headliner Tom Cruise. A sequel, despite the obvious franchise potential of the multiple Lee Child source novels, wasn't a foregone conclusion, although rumblings began in May that it was starting to look possible, with Ed Zwick in the director's chair. Now, with the success of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation reassuring everyone that Cruise's mojo is still intact, studio Paramount are pushing ahead, with shooting on Jack Reacher 2 earmarked for November this year, for a release in late 2016.Paramount are also keen to keep on striking while the Mission: Impossible iron is hot, with THR reporting that the studio want the sixth instalment shooting next summer, for a June or July release in 2017. Back when Jack Reacher 2 was first mooted, the plan looked to be an adaptation of 2013's Never Go Back, »

Tom Cruise, actor, filmmaker and professional stunt man

10 August 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Tom Cruise has come a very long way since his screen debut in Franc Zeffirelli’s Endless Love (1981). Thirty six movies and a whole lot of stardom later and he’s still the biggest movie star on the planet. He is perhaps, also the biggest film star in movie history. You’d be hard pushed to offer up any other actor that’s sustained that level of popularity and box office pull for that long. There is a good reason for this too. Cruise polarises opinion of course and there are those that would see his downfall, but in large part that’s due to all things that have little if nothing to do with Tom Cruise the filmmaker.

Being Tom Cruise must take a special kind of energy. So special in fact that he has sustained that level of dash for nigh on thirty years without letting up. And if Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, »

Why Tom Cruise’s ‘Mission: Impossible’ Scored While Other Starry Summer Movies Flopped

9 August 2015 6:02 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Who says A-list movie stars don’t matter at the box office anymore? This weekend, Tom Cruise’s “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” withstood a challenge from “Fantastic Four” and ruled the worldwide box office for the second straight week, taking in $29 million domestically and adding another $65.5 million overseas. That lifts its total grosses to $109 million domestic, $157 million overseas. “Rogue Nation”s’ performance bucks a trend that has emerged in recent years as superhero sagas and high-concept franchises dominate the list of top-grossing films, while movies with well-known stars have struggled. Cruise’s last three action vehicles — “Jack Reacher,” “Oblivion” and “Edge. »
