With G.I. Joe: Retaliation pulling in $375 million around the globe, Paramount wasted little time in securing director Jon M. Chu to helm the third instalment, as well as bringing in Evan Daugherty, screenwriter of Snow White and the Huntsman, Divergent and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to tackle the script for the threequel. Speaking to Rama's Screen, Daugherty has briefly discussed his work on G.I. Joe 3, although he really wasn't giving much away about the film.
"I think they gotta keep me sworn to secrecy on this one. I gotta stay quiet because I'm literally in the middle of writing it. What I'll say for this new movie, what we're trying to do, what I'm trying to do as a fan of the original cartoon in particular and the comic book as well - the comics are somewhat different than the cartoon - we're just really trying to make a totally great G. »

Although the first installment in Paramount’s toy-based movie franchise G.I. Joe: Rise Of Cobra was a misfire to say the least, the second film was dramatically improved both in terms of story and tone. The dark and gritty style along with the added star power of Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis certainly helped the quality of G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
Despite the long delay, re-shoots and production issues that the film suffered from, it still ended up grossing slightly more than its predecessor, which lead Paramount to begin development on a third film in the series. Evan Daugherty (Snow White And Huntsman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) was hired as writer of the untitled third G.I. Joe film, which he is currently hard at work penning. Now Daugherty has spoken a little bit about the upcoming sequel and also touches on the shocking decision to kill Channing Tatum’s »

Evan Daugherty has written scripts for some fairly big, upcoming projects in the wake of his work on Snow White and the Huntsman. In September, Daugherty added G.I. Joe 3 to a list of upcoming blockbusters that already included Divergent and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. So where is Daugherty at in the script writing process on the next Joe film? "I think they gotta keep me sworn to secrecy on this one. I gotta stay quiet because I’m literally in the middle of writing it. When you called, I was writing it," said Evan to Rama's Screen during their phoner. However, he did go on to talk about when he'd be turning in his first draft, "Sometime in the next few months, I would imagine." When asked about Duke and whether he would have killed off the popular Joe in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Daugherty stated, "Would I have »
Well, the rumours were true... the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight are set to be joined by the Amazon Princess in Warner Bros.' upcoming superhero team-up Batman vs. Superman, with up-and-coming actress Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious, Date Night) securing the role of Wonder Woman in what will be the character's first big screen appearance.
"Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe," says director Zack Snyder in an official statement. "Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character."

Wonder Woman, the premiere female superhero of all time, is finally making her big screen debut in Batman vs. Superman! And, after years of speculation on who could play this role that every actress wants to play, the role of Diana Prince/Ww goes to Gal Gadot. Gadot played Giselle in Fast & Furious (No. 5) and Fast and Furious 6. She also played a Russian villain in Date Night.
Many actresses have been mentioned for the role of the Amazon Princess through the years, including Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Alba. More recently, Oblivion's Olga Kurylenko, Thor's Jaimie Alexander and G.I. Joe: Retaliation's Elodie Yung were believed to be up for the part.
Batman vs. Superman is the sequel to Man of Steel, scheduled to hit theaters in 2015. Zack Snyder is again directing and Henry Cavill will play Clark Kent/Superman once again. Christian Bale, however, will reportedly not be »

Ladies and gentlemen, we have our Wonder Woman. It’s been clear that Warner Bros. is ramping up its DC presence in the upcoming Man of Steel follow-up Batman vs. Superman, and rumors have swirled that Wonder Woman would be introduced in the film along with Ben Affleck’s Batman and a few other comics characters. A report surfaced last month that Olga Kurylenko (Oblivion), Elodie Yung (G.I.

With cameras rolling on From Dusk Till Dawn, director Robert Rodriguez has given us our first look at the upcoming TV series by releasing an image from the set; no, it's not the Gecko brothers, nor is it the Fuller family or (sadly) Santánico Pandemonium, but rather Benny's World of Liquor, which is back open for business...
From Dusk Till Dawn is set to premiere on the El Ray Network next year, with a cast that includes D.J. Cotrona (Dear John, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and Zane Holtz (Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) as the Gecko brothers, Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The X-Files) as Jacob Fuller, Madison Davenport (Save Me, Shameless) as Kate Fuller, Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, Ender’s Game) as Scott Fuller, Don Johnson (Django Unchained, Nash Bridges) as Sheriff Earl McGraw and Eiza González (Lola: Érase Una Vez) as Santánico Pandemonium. »

The Writers Guild of America has remained tough on qualifying scripts for its screenplay awards, excluding more than a dozen high-profile scripts, including John Ridley’s screenplay for “12 Years a Slave.”
The guild’s restrictions — far more rigorous than other guilds — require that scripts be produced under WGA jurisdiction or under a collective bargaining agreement in Canada, Ireland, New Zealand or the U.K. The WGA had no immediate comment on the exclusions, but the restrictions on eligibility are a longstanding practice at the guild.
Other notable screenplays excluded include Peter Morgan’s screenplay for “Rush”; Ryan Coogler’s script for “Frutivale Station”; “Philomena,” written by Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope and “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” penned by William Nicholson.
Voting to determine the WGA’s nominees launched Tuesday on 95 eligible screenplays — 41 in the adapted category and 54 in the original category. The guild’s restrictions also require that the »

Duncan salutes his personal choice of the 2013 action movies that deserved just a little more love...
This article contains spoilers for each of the films mentioned. Not necessarily big ones, but you might want to steer clear of The World's End entry if you've not seen that.
2013 has been a great year for action. We’ve had multiple comic book heroes fighting it out on the big screen, with Thor and Iron Man continuing Marvel’s run of great movies, the return of the R-rated antics of Kick-Ass and at long last an F-bomb loaded, bloody incarnation of The Wolverine (though it’s worth pointing out that the unrated edition in the UK only comes with the 3D version of the home release, a trend I hope doesn’t continue).
From a sci-fi angle, we’ve had robots fighting monsters in Pacific Rim and »

Wilmer Valderama ('That '70s Show'), who recently joined the cast of the El Rey Network's new show 'From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series', has taken to Twitter and posted a little behind the scenes tease from the production. No costumed cast or sneaky set images just yet however. This new pic simply reveals the series logo plastered on the side of a clapperboard.

Paramount Pictures Australia has closed its Perth office and eliminated the sales function in its Brisbane office, while marketing for South Australia is now being handled out of Victoria.
As a result, seven permanent employees have departed.
Sales for Queensland and Wa are now being handled out of Sydney but the Brisbane office will continue to run marketing in that State. Paramount was the last of the major distributors to maintain an office in Perth.
In October the studio laid off 110 employees globally in areas such as international theatrical and home media distribution, marketing, legal and finance.
Paramount has the smallest release slate of the Hollywood studios, although it has scored at the global box-office this year with G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Star Trek Into Darkness, World War Z and Bad Grandpa, »

Earlier this month it was revealed that Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Brie Larson (The Spectacular Now) had tested for the role of Sarah Connor in Paramount Pictures' upcoming Terminator remake, and now The Hollywood Reporter has thrown another name into the mix, stating that Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany has also auditioned for the role previously portrayed by Linda Hamilton (The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgement Day) and Lena Headey (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles).
