Liam Neeson is one busy fella! His latest suspense-thriller, The Commuter, will find him starring as a normal businessman who gets caught up in a criminal conspiracy that affects him and his fellow commuters, according to Deadline. The role will be a departure for him, in that he won't be able to draw upon "a particular set of skills," as he did in the Taken movies that made him a worldwide action star. Since the first installment in 2008, Neeson has displayed his action chops in Clash of the Titans, The A-Team, Unknown, The Grey, Wrath of the Titans, Battleship, Non-Stop, and Run All Night, and he's also set to star in upcoming action pictures such as The Returner and A Willing Patriot. Now, not all those movies have been straightforward action movies. Joe...

San Sebastian – Hosting “Clash of the Titans,” “Wrath of the Titans,” “Fast and Furious 6,” “Exodus” and “In the Heart of the Sea,” Spain’s Canary Islands have added another big shoot to its location roster: the latest “Bourne” installment, with Matt Damon, Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Wikander and Julia Stiles.
Filming in Tenerife from Sept. 7, the “Bourne” shoot comes as the Canaries have scored their first San Sebastian competition slot with Lucile Hadzihalilovic’s “Evolution,” a France-Belgium- Spain production, co-produced by Sebastian Alvarez at the Canaries’ Volcano Films, a co-producer on Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” which shot exteriors on the Canary Island of Fuerteventura. Lanzarote provided “Evolution’s” stunning waterscapes.
Qualifying as Spanish nationality movies, the Canary Island’s past big shoots made avail of a 2007 Spanish movie Agrupacion de Interes Economico tax shelter, offering deductions of 38% for the Canaries.

Iconic horror characters don't stay dead for long, and it was only a matter of time until Freddy Kreuger returned to haunt audience's dreams. It's been five years since the decently successful but critically maligned reboot starring Jackie Earle Haley, and even longer since Robert Englund's turn in "Freddy vs. Jason," so the time has come for a new actor put on the razor gloves. The Wrap reports that New Line has tapped David Leslie Johnson (“Orphan,” "Red Riding Hood," "Wrath Of The Titans") to write the screenplay for the new 'Nightmare,' though there's no word yet on what the approach might be. It's probably safe to say the basic mechanics of the long-running franchise will be in place. Is there more than can be done with Freddy? Share your thoughts below. »

One…two…more reboots are coming for you. Just five years after Platinum Dune’s ill-fated A Nightmare on Elm Street, New Line has announced they intend to return prized bogeyman Freddy Krueger to his former onscreen glory with a fresh remake/reboot/rehash/cash-grab.
The Wrap reports that David Leslie Johnson has been tapped to pen a new Elm Street for New Line, a company fondly nicknamed “the house that Freddy built”.
Freddy’s a great villain and the concept of a monster that hunts you in your dreams is endlessly fertile. Craven mined it with some truly iconic moments and using remarkable cinematic techniques and thrifty craftsmanship (remember the scene where Freddy comes out of the wall? That cost a mere $10) he was able to conjure up great scares in service of imaginative storytelling.
Later sequels were less daring or innovative. 1994’s New Nightmare, »

New Line Cinema is planning to bring Freddy Krueger back from the dead for a second time. Yes, that's right. Instead of giving the 2010 remake a sequel, the plan is to completely wipe the slate clean and start over with a brand new reboot. Just five years after Jackie Earle Haley took over the iconic role from Robert Englund, the studio will soon be searching for someone new to wear the infamous glove with the knife fingers.
This new A Nightmare on Elm Street may not be produced by Platinum Dunes. They were behind the 2010 remake that fared okay at the box office, but didn't register at all with fans. It came and went without too many complaints. It wasn't an outright bomb, as it pulled in $63 million in the states off a $35 million budget. It went onto earn $115.6 million worldwide. But there weren't many fans of the movie, and according to The Tracking Board, »
After failing the first time around with a reboot in 2010, New Line Cinema is reportedly having another go at resurrecting Freddy Krueger as The Tracking Board (via Bloody Disgusting) reports that studio is looking into a whole new remake of "A Nightmare On Elm Street".
This would be the second project for Johnson announced this week, the first being the reboot of "Dungeons and Dragons" in the works at Warner Bros. Pictures. Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes produced the 2010 remake, but the company is not listed as producer on the new one at this time.

It was about 15 years ago that Hollywood first tried to turn the famed role playing game Dungeons and Dragons into a movie. That attempt wound up being a total failure, but evidently that's not stopping the industry from once again going down that path. A story from The Hollywood Reporter has revealed Warner Bros., Hasbro and Sweetpea Entertainment have negotiated a deal that will soon see the development of a brand new Dungeons and Dragons movie that will be produced by The Lego Movie's Roy Lee. While it seems that the project is still very much in the early days. a script is already being written by screenwriters David Leslie Johnson (Red Riding Hood, Wrath of the Titans), and there is a plan in place to set the movie in the game's campaign setting known as Forgotten Realms. This isn't the first time in the last few years that »

There was good news for Warner Bros. today. The studio has finished its homework and can now play Dungeons & Dragons! Well, that’s sort of what happened. In reality, the studio has worked out a deal with rights holders Hasbro and producer Courtney Solomon’s Sweetpea Entertainment to partner on a new film based on the long-running game world.And if ever there was a subject actually crying out for a new cinematic adaptation, it was Dungeons & Dragons, which suffered through Solomon’s less-than-magical effort back in 2000 with two straight-to-SyFy Channel sequels after that.A few years ago, Warner Bros. decided to go ahead and try to conjure up its own take, working with Wrath Of The Titans/ Red Riding Hood writer David Leslie Johnson’s script Chainmail – itself based on a more obscure game crafted by Dungeons designer Gary Gygax – and having him re-work it to focus on the »
Though a legal battle threatened to derail the project entirely back in 2013, Warner Bros. has today announced that its live-action Dungeons and Dragons adaptation is back on the table.
News comes after the company settled a dispute with toy manufacturer Hasbro, who then claimed that WB didn’t have the licensing rights to create a feature film. Now that the dust has settled, both parties have confirmed that the project is indeed moving forward. Perhaps spurred by the mounting interest in Duncan Jones’ Warcraft, Warner will be hoping to mine the rich resource that Dungeons and Dragons has to offer, which is widely considered to be one of – if not the – founding fathers of the modern fantasy genre.
In a press release, Greg Silverman, President Creative Development and Worldwide Production at Warner, spoke with excitement about the nascent project.
