Seth Rogen, Denzel Washington, Michael Keaton Should Attract Fall Auds, Survey Finds (Exclusive)

9 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Matching the right actor with the perfect project is a tricky (but tested) formula for box office success.

Take “The Interview.” The upcoming story of two newsmen tapped to assassinate a ruthless military dictator didn’t really move the needle with moviegoers until they found out that the film starred James Franco and Seth Rogen, a comic duo who previously headlined “Pineapple Express” and “This Is The End.”

That’s the takeaway from Piedmont Media Research, after the consumer testing firm polled 1,500 people about “The Interview” and other upcoming fall releases in order to gauge how an actor’s presence in a particular film impacts audiences’ enthusiasm. The people surveyed were selected to be demographically representative of the movie-going public in terms of age, gender, ticket-buying behavior and ethnicity. The results indicate that while star power may not shine as brightly as it did in Hollywood’s golden age, the »

Denzel Washington Interested In Becoming First Black James Bond

7 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

In a recent Reddit Ama, Denzel Washington revealed he would be interested in playing James Bond after Daniel Craig.

“The next James Bond? They better hurry up! Yes I would! Who’s doing James Bond now? Daniel Craig! Did they shoot another one? Everybody should tweet Denzel is James Bond! Send it to the studio!” he replied to user BigTalk45. “We start the Denzel is Bond campaign today! James Washington. Denzel Bond!”

Denzel Washing As First Black James Bond?

Like Liam Neeson, Washington has found something of a second career renaissance playing middle-aged action heroes. Washington’s last film Safe House received many comparisons to the Bond franchise among reviewers.

If it turns out that Washington does take on the roll, it would be historical for two reasons. Washington’s casting would make it the first time that Bond has been black and played by an American (Barry Nelson doesn »

Martin Lawrence Confirms That 'Bad Boys 3' Is Still A Thing That Might Happen

14 August 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It has been over ten years since "Bad Boys II," and in the time since, all anyone can think about is when "Bad Boys III" will get made. And steps have been taken. In 2009, Sony hired Peter Craig ("The Town") to write a script, and when that didn't work out, the studio hired David Guggenheim ("Safe House," "Stolen") at the end of last year to take a crack at it. Not much has been heard about the project since, but according to Martin Lawrence, his signature comedy franchise is very much alive. Stopping by "Conan" last night, the actor was asked if the sequel was still in play, and he offered up this quasi-update: "I believe so. Yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer yesterday and he said it's real, they’re working on the script, they’re getting close and it all looks good." Time to get excited? You might want to settle down. »

Martin Lawrence Says Bad Boys 3 Is "Getting Close"

14 August 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We've been hearing talk of a Bad Boys 3 movie since 2009. The last bit of information that we heard was in 2013 when Sony Pictures was looking to hire Safe House writer David Guggenheim to take a crack at the script. 

Martin Lawrence was a guest on Conan last night to promote his new FX series Partners, which co-stars Kelsey Grammer. While there, Conan O'Brien asked him about a third Bad Boys, and if it was actually a possibility, to which Lawrence replied: 

"I believe so, yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer... yesterday and he said its real. They’re working on the script, they’re getting close and it all looks good." 

The real question remains though… is Will Smith or Michael Bay up for returning? Because without those two elements it's not really going to be a Bad Boys movie. I enjoyed watching the first two films, and »

Martin Lawrence Says 'Bad Boys 3' is Finally Very Close to Happening

14 August 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Development on Bad Boys 3 at Sony Pictures has been dragging along since as far back as 2009. The studio hired The Town scribe Peter Craig five years ago to write the script, but as recently as this past winter, they decided to commission a new script from Safe House writer David Guggenheim. But since then, we haven't heard anything about the project coming to fruition, which is just par for the course. However, Martin Lawrence appeared on "Conan" last night where he was asked about the sequel by Conan O'Brien, and thankfully the star had some good news, giving us hope that he will reteam with Will Smith again. Here's the video of Martin Lawrence on "Conan" last night from Team Coco: If you don't feel like watching, when asked about the potential for Bad Boys 3 finally coming together, Lawrence simply said, "I believe so, yes.

'Bad Boys 3' Still Very Much Alive, Says Martin Lawrence. Script Coming Together. What Can We Expect?

14 August 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

It looks like a "Bad Boys 3" movie is indeed closer to becoming a reality with one of the stars of the film, Martin Lawrence, revealing to Conan O'Brien on his show last night, that he spoke to producer Jerry Bruckheimer the night before, and it's definitely in the works.  It previously wasn't clear whether Lawrence was interested in returning (Will Smith and Bruckheimer have previously shared interest, but Lawrence was noticeably quiet about it), but given his conversation with Conan last night, it looks like he will be back for a third film. Screenwriter David Guggenheim ("Safe House") is penning the script for the threequel. Although no »

Bad Boys 3 still in the works, Martin Lawrence tells Conan

14 August 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Martin Lawrence has confirmed that a new Bad Boys sequel is still in development.

The actor starred alongside Will Smith in the 1995 movie and its 2003 follow-up Bad Boys II and a second sequel has long been in development, soon after Smith called for a return back in 2008.

Conan O'Brien asked Lawrence on his chat show about the latest progress on the project.

"Is this true now... people love those Bad Boys movies, Bad Boys 1 and 2, that there's gonna be a Bad Boys 3, is that possible?" asked O'Brien.

Lawrence replied: "I believe so, yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer.

"I just talked to Jerry yesterday and he said it's real. They're working on the script, they're getting closer and it all looks good."

The pair then joked about O'Brien playing a "crooked cop on crack" in the sequel.

Lawrence said in April 2010 that the project was "real realistic" and »

Martin Lawrence Says Bad Boys 3 is Happening

14 August 2014 4:41 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

We've been hearing about "Bad Boys 3" for a while, but nothing ever happened. But in a new interview, Martin Lawrence revealed that he just met with producer Jerry Bruckheimer about the project. When asked if "Bad Boys 3" will ever happen, the actor replied: "I believe so. Yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer yesterday and he said its real, they're working on the script, they're getting close and it all looks good." Bruckheimer previously said that everyone wants to make "Bad Boys 3," but with people like Will Smith and director Michael Bay involved, it may be impossible to find the right time for everyone's schedules to work out. But there's still hope since David Guggenheim (Safe House) is still working on the script. »

Ryan Reynolds Joins Costner's Criminal

4 August 2014 5:12 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

As previously reported, Kevin Costner is continuing his recent thriller kick, following Jack Ryan and 3 Days To Kill with Ariel Vroman's high-concept Criminal. Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Oldman are already set to co-star, and as if that team weren't already strong enough, Ryan Reynolds is now set to join them.The film sees Costner playing a ruthless criminal (hence the title) who, rather than face the rest of his life in jail, volunteers for an experimental procedure to have the memories and skills of a murdered CIA field agent transferred into his own mind... with predictably unpredictable consquences. Jones is playing a doctor - presumably with a dash of mad neuroscientist about him - while Oldman and Reynolds' roles have not yet been revealed. We're going to guess high-up CIA villain for Oldman and cameo-appearance dead agent for Reynolds (maybe it's the same character he played in Safe House! »

Sony Picture Shuffles 'Spider-Man' Dates, Sets 'Uncharted' for 2016

23 July 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The future timeline of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise and the planned spin-offs has been uncertain since the second film in the franchise didn't do quite as well as Sony Pictures hoped. Originally, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was dated for June 10th, 2016, and the studio was figuring when they wanted to throw the spin-offs into theaters after that. But now Sony has decided to mix things up by setting The Sinister Six for release on November 11th, 2016 and then following it up with the third film in the primary franchise (likely summer) in 2018. But the vacated summer 2016 date won't be empty. Read on! Sony has decided to fill the June 10th, 2016 with their video game adventure adaptation of Uncharted, directed by King of Kong and Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon and written by David Guggenheim (Safe House). Of course, the studio is still trying to figure out who will play the main character of Nathan Drake. »
