Eva Mendes has been tipped to return in the next instalment of the the Fast & Furious series.

The actress played agent Monica Fuentes in 2003 sequel 2 Fast 2 Furious and had a post-credits cameo in 2011's Fast Five.

The source said that agent Fuentes would team up with Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel), Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and others to take on a new villain in New York.

Conversations are still said to be taking place about the return of Jason Statham as bad guy Deckard Shaw and the introduction of Helen Mirren to the series.

Exclusive: Eva Mendes Returning For Fast & Furious 8, New Character Revealed

8 July 2015 12:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was reported back in April that Universal was interested in getting Eva Mendes to reprise the role of agent Monica Fuentes in the upcoming Fast & Furious 8, and now it appears that the star’s involvement is almost a done deal. A source close to the production tells We Got This Covered that the current plot of the eighth film actually hinges on her character, who played a significant role in 2 Fast 2 Furious and cameoed in Fast Five, and it’s pretty much a sure thing that Mendes will sign on.

Our source asked to remain anonymous, and their connection to the project is solid enough that we feel comfortable respecting that. They say that Fuentes will be teaming up with Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel), Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and the rest of the gang to take on a new villain in the Big Apple. Additionally, conversations about Helen Mirren »

"Star Trek" Stars Sign For Fourth Film

26 June 2015 11:18 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto have reportedly renegotiated their deals and have been granted an option for a fourth installment in the rebooted "Star Trek" franchise at Paramount Pictures and Skydance Entertainment.

Pine is said to have scored about $6 million for the deal as the third installment of the film series begins production this week in Vancouver. The new deals are said to have added as much as $10-15 million to the film's budget.

The raises are big jumps for the actors. Pine earned only $600,000 for the 2009 movie, $1.5 million for 'Into Darkness' and was originally to have been paid $3 million for the third film.

Filming on the movie will also take place in Dubai, and this week the film's producer Dana Goldberg spoke with Collider about the hiring of "Fast Five" helmer Justin Lin on the project:

“Who knew Justin Lin was such a Star Trek fan? And he is. »

New True Detective Season 2 Trailers Welcome Judgment

8 June 2015 1:28 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

HBO has unveiled a pair of new True Detective Season 2 trailers, and I continue to be ridiculously excited about the return of writer/creator/showrunner Nic Pizzolato’s anthology series. This season once again kicks off with a murder, but instead of following two detectives, there’s a quartet of main characters at the center: a compromised detective full of self-loathing (Colin Farrell), a criminal kingpin dealing with his own pressures (Vince Vaughn), a driven and frustrated detective trying to do the right thing (Rachel McAdams), and a war veteran and motorcycle cop suffering from past trauma (Taylor Kitsch). These new trailers continue HBO’s excellent marketing campaign of teasing the series without really revealing anything. The first teaser remains the best, but as we move closer to the premiere date, this quick trailers do a nice job of keeping interest high. Check out the new trailers below, via HBO. »

Justin Lin and Simon Pegg Talk 'Star Trek 3', Which Begins Shooting Soon

4 June 2015 1:28 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Lost in the shuffle of all the Marvel, Star Wars, and DC-related franchises, people tend to forget about Star Trek. Justin Lin (Fast Five, Fast and Furious 6) has signed on to direct the third film in the franchise, Star Trek 3 (which may or may not be titled Star Trek Beyond), and recently spoke with Deadline, giving some insight into why he chose this project and what he expects to bring to the franchise. Fresh off of directing two episodes of season 2 of "True Detective", Lin was called by the director behind the first two Star Trek films, Jj Abrams. Lin said, "He asked me, do you like Star Trekc If you do, you should take this, be bold, and just go for it.'" Intrigued by the prospect of taking over the franchise, Lin recalls how much Star Trek was a part of his youth, "My dad worked 364 days a year, »

Justin Lin Talks "Star Trek Beyond" Plans

4 June 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In the wake of "Star Trek Into Darkness," one of the big changes for the freshly revived franchise is the handing over of the directorial reigns from J.J. Abrams to "Fast Five" helmer Justin Lin.

Whilst the film's co-writer/actor Simon Pegg has spoken about the upcoming "Star Trek Beyond" film several times, Lin has kept mum about it until today - around three weeks before production is scheduled to begin. Lin has confirmed to Deadline that the upcoming film will see the crew of the Enterprise setting out on their five-year mission:

"As great as Jj's films were, there's still a lot to be mined from these characters. They haven't really gone on their five-year mission, so what we experienced in the TV show hasn't been touched on yet. That sets up an opportunity for exploration and the deeper you go, the more you are examining humanity. Those are »

Writer Says 'The Legend Of Conan' Will Be Like " 'Unforgiven' With A Sword-Wielding Barbarian"

27 May 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger is more than happy to do a cinematic nostalgia tour. This summer he reboots in "Terminator Genisys," "Twins" sequel "Triplets" is in development, and in case you forgot, there's "The Legend Of Conan." At one point, it was promised that the movie would shoot before the end of 2013, and while that didn't happen, there are big plans with hopes for a new trilogy (obviously). Of course, Arnie is quite a bit older than he was in 1982 when "Conan The Barbarian" dropped, but the plan is to ignore the subsequent films, and for "The Legend Of Conan" to be straight up sequel. And writer Chris Morgan ("Fast Five," "Furious 6," "Furious 7") has some grand aspirations. "Our tone is a logical extension of the character established in the ’82 film…but 30 years later," he told The Arnold Fans. "When we meet him again, Conan has been many things over the course of his life — a. »

21 May 2015 8:48 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Cinemax has begun development of "Warrior," a visceral crime drama TV series inspired by the writings of martial arts legend Bruce Lee.

The story follows a gifted but morally corrupt fighter who is thrown into crisis after a lifelong quest for vengeance is undermined.

"Fast Five" director Justin Lin will executive produce and direct the potential pilot of the show which boasts a script by "Banshee" co-creator Jonathan Tropper.

Lee spent years working on the project before his sudden death in 1973, work that ws never published. His notes were found by his daughter and have become inspiration for the show which the daughter and Lin have been developing together since 2013.

Lin is next committed to helm the upcoming "Star Trek Beyond".

Star Trek 3: Simon Pegg Says Studio Feared the Original Script Was “Too Star Trek-y”

20 May 2015 10:18 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Actor/writer Simon Pegg dropped some truth bombs yesterday about nerd culture, and while some were taken aback by his comments (which only served to reinforce his thinking), many (myself included) found them refreshingly honest. But just because Pegg is able to think critically about his passions doesn’t mean he’s forsaking them entirely. It’s quite the opposite, as he’s currently co-writing the screenplay for Star Trek 3, which is likely titled Star Trek Beyond. Paramount was always going to make some changes on this next Trek film given that J.J. Abrams was departing the director’s chair for a galaxy far, far away, and it’s taken them a bit to get the film to a place that they’re comfortable with. Roberto Orci, who co-wrote and co-produced the first two Trek movies, was initially in line to direct Star Trek 3 and was overseeing the writing of the script. »

"Star Trek 3" To Be Less "Star Trek-y"

20 May 2015 5:18 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Those hoping "Star Trek Beyond," the upcoming third film in the rebooted "Star Trek" franchise, would get back to its roots should be prepared for some disappointment.

Rather than going the "Skyfall" route of re-introducing key elements of the franchise that the rebooted franchise had avoided so far, a new interview with the film's co-writer and actor Simon Pegg has revealed that the next film will move even further away from the "Star Trek" mold than the two previous J.J. Abrams films.

Speaking with Radio Times (via The Guardian), Pegg discussed how he and fellow scribe Doug Jung were brought onboard to work on the script after the departure of original co-scribe and potential director Roberto Orci:

"They had a script for Star Trek that wasn't really working for them. I think the studio was worried that it might have been a little too Star Trek-y."

Part of the problem is Marvel Studios. »

Dwayne Johnson Returning For Furious 8

18 May 2015 6:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite ending up a little worse for wear during this year’s Furious 7, Hobbs is ready to ride again for the recently greenlit Furious 8, actor Dwayne Johnson has confirmed.

During a Q&A for his upcoming summer tentpole San Andreas, Johnson, one of the most bankable actors working in Hollywood today, was asked whether or not he would be reprising his role in the next Fast & Furious entry, which will have to retool the franchise slightly now that stalwart Brian O’Conner (the late, lamented Paul Walker) has been given a touching send-off. Johnson replied, “Of course. It can’t go on without Hobbs.”

Well, there you have it. News of Johnson’s enthusiasm for Furious 8 surely comes as a relief to fans, given that Hobbs has secured a place as one of the franchise’s most popular characters since first appearing in Fast Five. Universal is »
