John Cusack has made 17 films in four years. We've found the ones that have gone all-but straight to DVD and watched them...
John Cusack is a bit of a Hollywood oddity. There’s no pattern to the type of movie he will choose to do, so he’s always kept us on our toes. Sure, he’ll make a dumb action movie, but that will often afford him the chance to make a few smaller gambles later on. Up until the last few years he’s played the system very well, but recently his ethic appears to have, um, waned? A little?
Since the heady days of Say Anything and Sixteen Candles he’s come to represent a sort of slightly weird-looking, awkwardly charming, offbeat everyman that men aged 18-49 can look at and go 'me'” - which is fine. There’s a place for that, as »
It was the spy thriller that revitalised the genre. But the production of 2002’s The Bourne Identity was far from an easy one...
Like so many budding filmmakers of his generation, Doug Liman got his start in movies by fiddling with his father's Super 8 camera. Then aged eight, Liman "Picked it up, started making movies with it, and never stopped."
By the time he'd reached his early 30s, Liman's ambitions had finally paid off. His films Swingers and Go, released in 1996 and 1999, were made cheaply and recouped healthy profits. Urgent and effervescently told, they were the product of a young, talented filmmaker on the rise. Liman's rising profile soon saw him land the kind of deal that a few dozen other hopefuls would have sold their souls for - Universal signed him up to make a film based on Robert Ludlum's spy thriller, The Bourne Identity. »

Hollywood is an industry built on body image. We all know this. But who defines which body images should be praised and which images should be ridiculed? According to a recent study, which was featured on RunWayRiot, weight is mentioned in more Hollywood scripts than you would think. These statistics from Bulimia.com, whose staff read though 1,223 scripts that spanned the last 90 years of film making. They scanned each script looking for mentions of weight, size, and any characters whose names had to do with their body type. The study discovered that out of 1,223 film scripts studied, "707 contained at least one of the following terms: fat, fatty, chunky, big boned (combined with big-boned), chubby, husky, obese, overweight, plump, portly, and stout." That puts 707 size mentions out of 1,223 scripts right around %58 -- that's more than half of every script they read. The study also broke down which films mentioned weight the most, »

Amber Heard is an actress who's always been right on the cusp of breaking out in a much bigger way. She's pretty fantastic in genre movies (see Drive Angry, Zombieland, Machete Kills), and lately she's been flirting with more prestigious fare (see The Danish Girl). Now comes confirmation that Heard's star status is about to take a more heroic jump, with The Wrap reporting that she's in talks to star as Aquaman's (Jason Momoa) love interest Mera in the 2018 Aquaman movie, with her introduction coming in 2017's Justice League film. Mera is kind of a big deal and Queen of Atlantis, not to mention Aquaman's main squeeze. Among her powers is the ability to control water, and she's been a central figure in the Aquaman comics since the '60s. Zack...

It looks like Warner Bros have found their Queen of the Seas! According to a report from Variety, The Rum Diary and Drive Angry star Amber Heard is currently "in talks" to feature alongside Jason Momoa's Aquaman as 'Mera'. The site's sources claim that she'll first appear in Justice League (as previously rumored), before going on to star in James Wan's solo Aquaman feature in 2018. Heard is a solid actress who's delivered a number of underrated supporting turns, not least in last year's Magic Mike Xxl. Nothing seems set in stone at the moment, but if this casting were to go ahead, do you like the sound of it? As always, be sure to sound off with your thoughts below! Update: Did James Wan just confirm the casting himself? It seems so. The director just shared Variety's original article on his personal Facebook page. It looks like those negotiations went well. »
