Luc Besson Eyes Sullivan Stapleton As New Action Star In The Lake

11 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Somehow, despite toplining Cinemax’s Strike Back and starring in high-grossing follow-up 300: Rise of an Empire, Aussie actor Sullivan Stapleton has yet to break into the mainstream. That may be about to change, though, now that EuropaCorp hitmaker Luc Besson has set him to star in The Lake.

The thriller will focus on a group of Navy SEALs who get on the trail of a long-forgotten mystery after uncovering a treasure trobe in a lake in war-torn Serbia.

Besson, who previously launched Liam Neeson, Jason Statham and Scarlett Johansson to action super-stardom, penned the script for The Lake with The Equalizer scribe Richard Wenk. Steven Quale (Into the Storm) is set to direct.

EuropaCorp’s last box-office juggernauts, Taken 3 and Lucy, were both distributed by other studios, but The Lake joins a homegrown slate that also includes Kevin Spacey starrer Nine Lives, franchise reboot The Transporter Legacy (in »

Slyvester Stallone to Produce 'The Expendables' Event Series for Fox

13 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Expendables" may be moving from the big screen to the small screen: Deadline reports that Fox is working on an event series based on the action franchise.

According to the trade, "Expendables" mastermind Sylvester Stallone is on board to executive produce the show, which would feature well-known television action stars of yore, in much the same way as the films have recycled '80s and '90s heroes. Per Deadline:

It is described as a fun action drama that unites iconic TV stars as a new team of highly-skilled heroes who are on a mission to stop a dangerous terrorist.

[...]

There is no cast attached or approached yet but the producers have plenty of beloved TV action stars to choose from: 'Walker, Texas Ranger''s Chuck Norris, who already is part of 'The Expendables' feature franchise, '24''s Kiefer Sutherland, 'Magnum, P.I.''s Tom Selleck, 'Xena''s Lucy Lawless, »

10 Actors Seeking a Comeback This Pilot Season

3 March 2015 10:29 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Wesley SnipesIf this list were a competition, Wesley Snipes would win this hands-down: the "Blade" actor is lining up his first potential starring role since finishing up a three-year prison sentence (for tax fraud) in April 2013. After competing with (and ultimately losing to) Terrence Howard for the lead in Fox's smash hit "Empire" last year, Snipes has nailed down a starring role in the NBC drama pilot "Endgame." He stars opposite Philip Winchester ("Strike Back") in the Las Vegas-set thriller, which examines the convergence of crime, gambling and conspiracy in Sin City. It comes from "The Blacklist" executive producers John Davis and John Fox, and the description for Snipes' character, Johnson, reads as follows: "An unflappable guy with a dry sense of humor. Highly intelligent and analytical. Mysterious and unreadable." Once the star of the hottest vampire franchise around, Snipes is hoping "Endgame" is the path »
