“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 »
Wme has signed The Killing‘s Joel Kinnaman, the agency said in a wide announcement. The Stockholm-bred thesp crossed over stateside as the street-tough Detective Holder on AMC’s cop show and starred in MGM and Sony’s RoboCop reboot earlier this year. The Killing was revived for a fourth season on Netflix this month. Kinnaman, previously with CAA, stars opposite Liam Neeson in WB’s 2015 crime actioner Run All Night and has Summit/Lionsgate’s Child 44 with Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, and Noomi Rapace opening in April.

He also appeared in Espinosa’s English-language crime pic Safe House, Lola Versus, and David Fincher’s The Girl With THe Dragon Tattoo. Kinnaman continues to be repped by manager Shelley Browning at Magnolia and attorney Hansen Jacobson. »

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. »

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 »

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. I just »

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 »

Conan O'Brien asked Lawrence on his chat show about the latest progress on the project.
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 »
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. »
When asked if Bad Boys 3 will happen on Conan last night, Martin Lawrence said he just recently talked to Jerry Bruckheimer about it, and says things are looking good for project. 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. Last we knew, Safe House scribe David Guggenheim was writing the script for Bad Boys 3, and earlier this year Jerry Bruckheimer »

The SyFy Channel has announced that director Wolfgang Peterson (Das Boot, The Neverending Story, Troy, Air Force One) and Scott Stuber (Safe House, Ted) are set to develop a series based on the John Scalzi book The Ghost Brigades, which is part of the Hugo Award nominated Old Man's War universe book series.
The story follows John Perry, "who at 75, enlists into the Colonial Defense Force to fight a centuries-long war for man's expansion into the cosmos. Technology allows experiences and consciousness to be transplanted into younger bodies that are outfitted to endure the harsher rigors of war in space. However, soon after John arrives, he finds himself involved with a mysterious woman, and at the same time, at the center of an unraveling conspiracy involving an elite fighting force known as The Ghost Brigades."

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! »
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. »

We recently brought you news that Sinister Six had been dated for November 11th, 2016, and that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 had been pushed back to the summer of 2018, and now we know what’s taking the latter film’s place on Sony’s schedule. Today, in the midst of Comic-Con fervor, it was revealed that the Uncharted adaptation would be taking The Amazing Spider-Man 3‘s spot on June 10th, 2016.
Said Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group president Doug Belgrad:
“June 10 is a great date for Uncharted. It’s just the right place for this exciting action-adventure film.”
An adaptation of the popular Sony Playstation video-game series, Uncharted will follow the adventures of Indiana Jones-esque explorer Nathan Drake. Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) is directing, and the latest iteration of the script is being written by Safe House scribe David Guggenheim. According to Deadline, Mark Wahlberg is being eyed for the lead role of Drake, »

After being stuck in development for several years, the video game adaptation Uncharted is finally moving in the right direction, with Seth Gordon coming on board to direct back in February. While the production still hasn't found the right actor to play Nathan Drake yet, the filmmaker revealed that production will start in early 2015.
"I think very early next year. That's the plan. That's like tomorrow, essentially, because the prep is so complicated for the movie."
The director added that they, "just got the script to a really good place," while adding that the movie will be "very international" with settings "all over the world." David Guggenheim (Safe House) wrote the most recent draft of the screenplay.
The project is adapted from the hit Naughty Dog video game that follows treasure hunter Nathan Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake, who sets off on a quest to find the famed city of El Dorado, »
Reader reports, audience reviews… meh. Sure you can keep tabs on that “coverage,” but posting about that stuff specifically can be hurtful or irresponsible to a film if the “reviews” are early and especially if they’re negative (hell, on the Internet they’re pretty easy to fabricate in either direction too). Finding out “early buzz” on a movie through test screenings isn’t hard if you’re looking for it. So that said, we’d been hearing a few whispers about “Child 44” and perhaps today’s news jibes with it. It's got a strong pedigree around it: it's directed by Daniel Espinosa ("Easy Money" and "Safe House") and it stars Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Joel Kinnaman, Noomi Rapace, Jason Clarke of “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes,” Paddy Considine and Dev Patel one of the stars of “Slumdog Millionaire.” That’s a pretty fantastic cast in anyone’s book, »
