Yesterday we got our first look at the Foot Clan in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live-action reboot thanks to a batch of set photos, and now today we may have discovered the identity of their master. According to Deadline, William Fichtner (The Dark Knight, Drive Angry) has joined the cast of the Michael Bay-produced remake in "a lead [role] with iconic stature in the Turtles' mythology". Considering his penchant for playing bad guys, and the fact he's probably a little too old to play Casey Jones, it would seem we have our Shredder.
Fichtner - whose other upcoming roles include Disney's The Lone Ranger and Neill Blomkamp's Elysium - joins a cast that includes Megan Fox (Transformers) as April O'Neil, Alan Ritchson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) as Raphael, Pete Ploszek (Parks and Recreation) as Leonardo, Jeremy Howard (How the Grinch Stole Christmas) as Donatello, Noel Fisher (Battle Los Angeles) as Michaelangelo, »

Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures have teamed up with Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes production company to re-imagine the popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise for a new film series. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are a team of four anthropomorphic turtles who were trained by their anthropomorphic rat sensei in the art of ninjutsu and named after Renaissance artists Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Rafael. They reside in the storm sewers of New York City and battle petty criminals, evil megalomaniacs and alien invaders while remaining isolated from society at large. The long-standing franchise has been the focus of comic books, animated series and three live-action feature films over the past few decades. Actor William Fichtner (The Dark Knight, Drive Angry) has joined »

Ladies and gentlemen, we may have found our new Shredder. While nothing has been confirmed at this point, Deadline is reporting that famed character actor William Fichtner has signed on to the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in "a lead [role] with iconic stature in the Turtles. mythology." And we think it could be the movie's big baddie. Considering that all of the Turtle roles are taken (Alan Ritchson will play Raphael, Pete Ploszek will play Leonardo, Jeremy Howard will play Donatello, and Noel Fisher will play Michelangelo) and that Seinfeld's Danny Woodburn will be playing Master Splinter, that just leaves Shredder (the Turtles' greatest enemy) and Casey Jones (the hockey mask-wearing vigilante). Given Fichtner's recent run of antagonist characters, starring in movies like Drive Angry and the upcoming Lone Ranger and Elysium, we're willing to bet that he's playing the former. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is being »
It's certainly the year for sci-fi what with 'Pacific Rim', 'Oblivion', 'Star Trek into Darkness' and more on the agenda. The La Times have revealed the newest still from Neill Blomkamp's ('District 9') latest venture into science fiction. Matt Damon ('Contagion') features on the latest image from 'Elysium' the highly anticipated feature from the acclaimed South African director.

Jodie Foster ('Silence of the Lambs), William Fichtner ('Drive Angry'), Michael Shanks ('Saving Hope'), Alice Braga ('I Am Legend'), Diego Luna, Talisa Soto and Carly Pope also star in the project.

Following on from the release of the new one-sheet for Neill Blomkamp's exciting 'Elysium' comes a fresh first look trailer from the sci-fi feature courtesy of TriStar Pictures and Media Rights Capital. The new trailer certainly ups the scale of the whole event moreso than we had ever imagined it to be but what with Joseph Kosinski's 'Oblivion' hitting theatres this month and M. Night Shyamalan's 'After Earth' eyeing a June opening the post-Earth humanity struggle yarn may be wearing thin come this Summer when 'Elysium' finally lands.

Changing appearances for the sake of entertainment is nothing new in Hollywood; it's all part of the gig. But when professional heartthrob Ryan Gosling tweaks his look, disgruntled fans are going to have something to say about it.
In "The Place Beyond the Pines," Gosling sports a bleach-blond 'do for his role as a motorcycle racer-turned-bank robber. As photos started surfacing during the film's production, people were wondering what the heck was going on with his hair. Serious drama.
But since Gosling isn't the first to drastically dye his hair for a film, we rounded up a few other male counterparts who didn't necessarily pull off going blond, to make him (and everyone else) feel a little better about it.
Lucky for Bardem, the character of Raoul Silva in the 007 flick was just as eerie as his haircut and color. Some called it "deliciously wicked, »

Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are.
With that in mind, here's 50 of your favorite titles all preparing to get new installments. Some of them are deep into pre-production while others have barely gotten out of the pitch stages, but you'll be salivating at the thought of some of these sweet babies finally making their way to the screen.
Status: The law of diminishing returns seems to have caught up to Paramount's annual license to print money, and even though the last "Paranormal" grossed half its predecessor, producer Jason Blum is gonna »

Director: Simon West.
Running Time: 96 minutes.
Synopsis: A recently released thief trying to go straight frantically searches for his missing teenage daughter who has been kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a taxi by a former criminal partner.
In many people’s eyes, it’s difficult to know where it all went wrong for Nicolas Cage. The Oscar-winner may still be a box-office draw when in the right project and gives genuine oomph to many roles, but he’s been involved in more guff than greats. Cage’s latest effort sees him reunite with his Con Air director Simon West, and while the duo’s 1997 all-star action spectacle is a massive guilty pleasure, the fact Stolen went straight-to-dvd in the States suggests it may be better to “put the bunny back in the box” and »

All the Boys Love Mandy Lane is one of those mythical films that could only succeed in the horror genre. After a huge premiere at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival, Mandy Lane was one of the most buzzed-about films of the year. And the next year. And the next year. And yet it has never seen a Stateside release of any kind. Until now.
Directed by Jonathan Levine (whose surprise hit Warm Bodies no doubt made Mandy Lane far more appealing) the film starred Amber Heard (The Ward, Drive Angry) as "good girl" Mandy Lane, who is invited to an end-of-summer party where partygoers mysteriously drop one by one. The flick, produced for $600,000 and bought at auction following the Toronto screening for $3.5 million by the Weinstein Company, has languished on the studio shelves for nearly a decade due to a wide variety of studio problems and indecision.
