Exclusive: CAA has signed actor Taylor Kitsch. Here’s the guy who – after playing one of the great recent TV characters in fullback Tim Riggins on Friday Night Lights and then a small but showy role as Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine – seemed like he was going to be the next big leading man. That was before he suffered a hellacious summer when the two big movies he starred in, John Carter and Battleship, both flopped. But Kitsch has put himself back on the track with a good showing in the Oliver Stone-directed Savages and most recently playing the Medal of Honor-winning Long Island-bred Navy Seal Michael Murphy in the Peter Berg-directed Lone Survivor. Kitsch was last repped by Wme but has been agent-less this year until now. He continues to be managed by Untitled Entertainment, and he next stars in the ensemble of HBO’s adaptation »

On Saturday, drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán was captured in a near-seamless operation (reports say not a single shot was fired during the bust) in the Mexican resort city of Mazatlán, where the 59-year-old wanted man was allegedly enjoying some fun in the sun.
Guzman — one of the world’s richest outlaws and the head of a drug cartel responsible for a reported 25 percent of all illegal drugs brought into the United States via Mexico — had evaded capture for years. That is, unless you count a brief imprisonment in 2001, which ended when El Chapo — translated, the nickname means “Shorty »

As John Travolta celebrates his 60th birthday on Tuesday, Feb. 18, the actor is sorely missing his late son Jett. During a recent on-stage interview at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London (published by the BBC on Feb. 17), Travolta called his son's death "the worst thing that's ever happened in my life." "The truth is, I didn't know if I was going to make it," the Savages actor shared. "Life was no longer interesting to me, so it took a lot to get me better." Travolta [...] »
Saturday Night Fever, Grease, Pulp Fiction, Get Shorty, Face/ Off. Just five of the many iconic John Travolta movies in a career that has spanned five decades and over fifty movies. In that time Travolta has appeared in musicals, horror films, thrillers, comedies, action movies, dramas, animated fares and science fiction epics. He is the actor that has seen it all and done it all. In last 35 years, since his career blossomed with a role in a 1977 musical named Grease, he has overcome personal tragedy, critical acclaim and critical mauling, career highs, career lows and at least two movie rebirths in the late 80s and 90s, most notably with the 1994 cult movie Pulp Fiction, from director Quentin Tarantino; and here he is in London, on perhaps the most glamourous nights of the year, BAFTA night, to celebrate his career and his life with the people he clearly adores the most, »

Look, if anyone can get away with wearing leather micro minis in a New York City blizzard, it's Blake Lively. But just because she can doesn't mean she should. Is Mrs. Ryan Reynolds looking a little too reminiscent of Miss Serena van der Woodsen in these shorty shorts? The plaid top and knee highs are total co-ed couture. Or is the bigger problem that the Savages star thinks she's above appropriate winter attire? We get that the New York Fashion Week favorite only has to walk from her hotel to her car to the front row of the next show, but this Polar Vortex is no joke. Unless those sheer tights are some kind of genius skin-warming technology, this Cali native could catch a chill that lasts a »

Before NBC even set a premiere date for the high-concept sci-fi drama Believe, from J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuaron, two showrunners had already left. Believe, now run by director Jonas Pate, centers on Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), a young girl in possession of great powers -- which will come into their own in seven years -- and the man who is sprung from prison (Savages' Jake McLaughlin) to protect her from those trying to hunt her down. Abrams addressed the highly publicized changes Sunday during the show's winter Television Critics Association press tour session, dismissing any speculation that the creative

Cameron just confirmed that Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington will return for the still-untitled follow-ups to 2009's "Avatar," reprising their roles of Na'vi huntress Neytiri and wounded Marine Jake Sully, respectively. In a press release, the director praised his leads, and noted his excitement to collaborate with the pair once again.
"Jake Sully is a rare combination of passion, strength, street smarts and soul, which requires a lot from an actor. Sam brought to the role a combination of sensitivity, vulnerability and strength," Cameron said. "Zoë captured every aspect of the character I envisioned, bringing to Neytiri a mix of delicacy, fierceness and incredible physicality. I am beyond pleased they'll be returning with us to Pandora."

The duo join the previously confirmed Stephen Lang in the cast of the sequels, with Lang set to return as Colonel Quaritch, despite his demise in the first film. Few plot details are known, but THR's report claims that Worthington and Saldana's characters will have children in the sequels.
The trio of Avatar sequels are being written by Cameron alongside Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Shane Salerno (Savages), and Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). Avatar 2 is set to hit in December 2016 followed by Avatar 3 in »

No surprises here, but in case you were wondering, Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana have officially signed on to star in the three Avatar sequels being developed by James Cameron. I just assumed they were were already on board, but apparently not. The only other actor that is officially attached at the moment is Stephen Lang, which was much more of a surprise than this latest update. He played Marine Colonel Quaritch in the first movie, and he died.
Cameron plans to shoot the films back to back to back. He hired several screenwriters to help him through the process of getting these films made. Those writers include Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds), Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planets of the Apes), and Shane Salerno (Savages). Avatar 2 is expected to be released in December of 2016, and each year after that we should get a new one. »

News is slowly starting to creep out of the production for James Cameron’s Avatar sequels. We know that he’s planning three of them, and that they will be shot back-to-back-to-back. But we can now report that shooting won’t begin until Dec 2014/Jan 2015, as they look to stay on schedule for a December 2016 release for the first film. Deadline is reporting that the current plan would be to shoot all of the sure-to-be extensive motion capture work first, then shift to live-action.
We also know that Cameron has enlisted the talents of several other writers to help him make his next three films as strong as possible. He’s currently collaborating with Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds) on the second film, with Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planets of the Apes) on the third, and he’ll be completing the fourth with Shane Salerno (Savages, »

This is news? Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana are all set to reprise their roles in the next three films in James Cameron's Avatar franchise.Three more films from Avatar is pushing the limit visually. I'm not sure how much of these big blue people I can take. The first film, which is the highest grossing of all time, pulled that off due to revolutionary 3D filmmaking at the expense of poor writing. The next films have a silver lining in some strong scribes on board to elevate the film past having only visual effects as an audience puller. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planets of the Apes), and Shane Salerno (Savages, Salinger) are working with Cameron on the scripts for all follow-up, as well as Josh Friendman, the very same guy who massacred the War of the World remake and offered us the awful Black Dahlia. »
Fox recently announced that there will be three - not two - more sequels and that Cameron had hired screenwriters Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds), Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planets of the Apes), and Shane Salerno (Savages, Salinger) to collaborate with on the screenplays for the second, third and fourth movies.
Cameron has also said that his three Avatar sequels will be shot in New Zealand.
He projected that the first 3D Avatar sequel will be in cinemas by Christmas 2016, with the ensuing movies to be released in 2017 and late 2018 respectively.
The director added that all three films will be shot concurrently beginning in 2015.
Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana are going back to blue. The "Avatar" stars are set to return for the next three sequels in the James Cameron sci-fi franchise, reprising their roles as paralyzed marine Jake Sully and Na'vi huntress Neytiri, respectively.
