According to Deadline, Relativity Studios is in negotiations with Andrea Riseborough to play the villain in Corin Hardy's remake of The Crow, which will star Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston as the doomed Eric Draven. Riseborough ( Birdman, Oblivion, Disconnect, Made in Dagenham, Never Let Me Go) would play a character named Top Dollar, who was originally written as a man and was played by Michael Wincott in the first adaptation back in 1994. Top Dollar runs a crime syndicate, and is indirectly responsible for the deaths or Draven and his fiancée Shelly (Jessica Brown Findlay). The remake is being produced by Edward R. Pressman, Kevin Misher, Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh, and Jeff Waxman. James O’Barr is also on board as a consultant. The Crow will take flight in 2016. »
Back when Luke Evans was still attached to The Crow remake, the actor said the plan was to "be authentic and loyal to the original comic," however one character is apparently getting a sex change. Deadline has learned that Oblivion and Birdman star Andrea Riseborough is in negotiations to play Top Dollar. While Top Dollar was just a lowly drug dealer in the comic, in the 1994 movie, he was the head of the crime organization responsible for the deaths of Eric Draven and »

With a new tragic hero firmly on board in the shape of Jack Huston, director Corin Hardy is looking to make an interesting choice for his new version of James O’Barr’s The Crow. He has Oblivion’s Andrea Riseborough in talks to play the main villain.This could be a fascinatingly fresh take on the character of Top Dollar, as portrayed in the 1994 version by Michael Wincott. In the graphic novel, Top Dollar is the head of a crime syndicate responsible for the brutal murder of rocker Eric Draven and his fiancée, with Draven brought back to supernatural life to avenge the killings.Hardy has Claire Wilson working on the latest draft of the script, which will follow the graphic novel even more closely than Alex Proyas’ effort thanks to O’Barr’s contributions as consultant. Relativity Studios is backing this one, with the cameras expected to start »

Tom Cruise underwrites so much of Scientology, people connected with the Church root for the success of his movies, even when they suck. P.I. Daniel Powell, who claims to have been hired by the Church to tail the father of Scientology leader David Miscavige, joked with cops ... Tom was the biggest moneymaker by far in the Church. In fact, Powell wisecracks that Tom is probably paying the $10k a week salary to keep tabs on and harass Ronald Miscavige. »

When director Crowe sticks to historical adventure, his film is tense and exciting. But it lacks a sense of magic that it needs to make it fully engaging. I’m “biast” (pro): love Russell Crowe
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
In 1919, four years after the disastrous Australian defeat at the Wwi battle of Gallipoli, a father travels to the Ottoman Empire hoping to find his lost sons. It’s sorta like Saving Private Ryan, except the soldiers to be found are dead, and the stack of needles farmer Connor (Russell Crowe: Noah, Winter’s Tale) has to search for his needles is the battle-scarred landscape upon which are scattered the long-dead bones of the 10,000 Australians — and 70,000 Turks — who were killed there.
How does Connor propose to accomplish such an impossible task? »

It's nearly five years since Tron: Legacy massaged our eyeballs, and Disney's still slowly putting together its sequel.
Legacy's director Joseph Kosinksi, who's since made the Tom Cruise sci-fi Oblivion, has been attached to Tron 3 for some time. Joining him, it's been revealed, will be Legacy's leads Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund.
That Wilde and Hedlund are coming back isn't too much of a surprise, given how pivotal they were to the previous film, but it's a sign, at least, that Tron 3's still definitely happening. In fact, The Hollywood Reporter says that Tron 3 is likely to start filming in Vancouver in the autumn.
Disney has been developing a sequel to 2010’s “Tron: Legacy,” which grossed $400 million worldwide, but has not yet greenlit “Tron 3.” If it goes ahead, it’s expected to shoot in Vancouver, where “Tron: Legacy” was filmed.
“Tron: Legacy” was a sequel to the 1982 movie “Tron,” starring Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner inside a computer world. Hedlund portrayed the son of Bridges’ character in “Legacy,” while Wilde portrayed a humanized algorithm.
Justin Springer is on board as a producer.
Kosinski’s previous credits include Tom Cruise sci-fi film “Oblivion.” Wilde was last seen in the horror movie “The Lazarus Effect.” Hedlund will be playing Hook in Warner Bros.’ Peter Pan origin story “Pan.”
Wilde is repped by Wme, Untitled and Ziffren Brittenham. Hedlund is repped by Wme, Brillstein Entertainment and Sloane Offer. »

The surprise news broke earlier this month that Joseph Kosinski's follow-up to Tron: Legacy was suddenly gearing up for an autumn shoot. Now it looks as if the title may have been revealed too. Tweets from industry journal Production Weekly casually suggest that it's Tron: Ascension, as if everybody knew that already.Joseph Kosinski’s Tron: Ascension is planning to film in Vancouver from Early-October 2015 thru February 2016. http://t.co/ihBaFAc3O5— Production Weekly (@prodweek) March 30, 2015That may be a simply a place-holder production title, but speaking purely speculatively, it would certainly make sense given where we left off last time.

I was not a huge fan of Tron: Legacy, but one thing I will say for it is I really enjoyed where it ended. In fact, as much as I thought the film itself was a bit of a dud, had it continued on for another two hours I think they might have had one hell of a great four hour film on their hands. That said, have you heard the news Tron 3 is looking at beginning production in Vancouver this Fallc Word broke earlier this month that Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion) was returning to direct after news first surfaced in the VanCity Buzz and seemed to be later confirmed by the trades. I reached out to Disney and they gave me the "we have no idea" response so I didn't write much else about it. However, today Production Weekly sent out a tweet reporting once again that »

'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' trailer: Movie stunt combo "Desperate times. Desperate measures," says Tom Cruise aka Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation trailer aka the Mission: Impossible 5 and/or MI5 trailer. Whatever you call it, that particular line could be read in a number of ways: Tom Cruise's superstardom is in the doldrums – at least that's what we hear from those who see reality only through U.S.-focused lenses – and he needs all the box-office help he can get. Hence, MI5. Hollywood is in dire need of a mammoth domestic blockbuster following a year of mediocre-performing tentpoles at the U.S. box office. Hence, MI5. The world's socioeconomic fabric is about to unravel. Hence, MI5 – so humankind can go with a bang. Not only with a bang, but with mirth as well. »

After Tron Legacy, the long-awaited sequel to the 1982 classic Tron, debuted during the Christmas season in 2010, rumours have circulated that a third (and perhaps final) film would make its way to the big screen, with Legacy director Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion) continuously attached to the threequel without any concreate news or official confirmation from Disney, the franchise owners.
Well, yesterday Vancouver-based website VanCity Buzz reported that Tron 3 is going ahead, and that is it gearing up for a shoot this October in the city. Furthermore, both Koskinski and his Legacy star Garrett Hedlund are set to return, with Hedlund reprising his role as Sam Flynn, the son of Tron creator Kevin, played by Oscar winner Jeff Bridges in both films. There’s no word on whether Bridges will return in some form, or Olivia Wilde, who co-starred in Legacy as Quorra.
While never a massive box-office success, the original Tron »

Don’t ever say that Disney doesn’t like getting more green.
It seems like the House of Mouse will actually be moving forward with a sequel to 2010’s Tron Legacy, according to a report by Badass Digest on Tuesday. The film starred Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, and Jeff Bridges and was a continuation of the original Tron from 1982.
The original report came from Vancity Buzz out of Vancouver, which reported that Tron 3 would be filming in Vancouver this fall with Hedlund set to return. Badass Digest has since also confirmed that the movie is happening and that director Joseph Kosinski will be coming back also.
The question that many are posing with this movie is why Disney would want to move forward with it even though the other film didn’t make as much money. Tron: Legacy barely brought back its budget and the film wasn’t a »

For a long time it seemed as though any chance of Tron: Legacy getting a sequel was non-existent. But according to a new report, that's not the case, and after some very quiet development, Disney is ready to shoot this Fall with the director returning. Come inside for a little more information!
Well this is interesting. According to some reports out of Vancouver, Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy and Oblivion) is gearing up to film Tron 3 at that location this Fall...just a few months from now. What's crazy, is that from just about all we've heard until this point, was that Tron 3 was virtually dead, as Legacy had failed to perform as expected in the box office. While rumblings of a third Tron movie has popped up over the years since (including a writer being hired back in 2011 for it), nothing ever seem to come of it.

Dust off your Led suit and get ready to go back to the Grid, because the word on the street is that "Tron 3" is filming this fall.
According to Vancouver's VancityBuzz blog, "Tron 3" will begin filming on October 5, 2015, with Garrett Hedlund attached to reprise his role as Sam Flynn. Badass Digest got confirmation from a trusted source in the industry that the movie is a go, with "Tron: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinski returning as well. During an interview for "Oblivion" in 2012, Kosinski said, "I've said it would have to be our 'Empire Strikes Back' for me to come back and for me to pull the whole team back together. I think we do have that idea. We do have the idea that feels big and really blows the doors off this franchise."
It makes sense that Kosinski would return for another run, but Hedlund's run of dramatic roles »

Since the release of Tron: Legacy back in 2010, there have been continual rumours and reports of a Tron 3. Director Joseph Kosinski - who's since made Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise - has continually declared his interest in making another Tron adventure, whilst Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde would be expected to pick up where the last film left off.
Appreciating that Tron films are hardly cheap to make, the project seemed to have stalled at Disney. But a fresh report now suggests that Tron 3 will be filming in Vancouver, with production starting on October 5th.
Furthermore, the report - which appeared in Van City Buzz - says that Garrett Hedlund will indeed be back, reprising the role of Sam Flynn in the movie.
Disney hasn't confirmed the story, »
Live-action remake of Disney classic is still in development.
According to reports, the film will be a mixture of computer generated effects and live action.
Burton previously directed Alice in Wonderland for Disney, which went on to gross $1.03bn worldwide. »
