Helen Mirren Targets Trumbo Role Opposite Bryan Cranston

14 April 2014 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

It was shortly before the series finale of "Breaking Bad" last year that word broke of Bryan Cranston signing on to headline Trumbo , a biopic of blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo that Jay Roach ( The Campaign , Game Change ) will direct. Now, Variety reports that Helen Mirren is eyeing a role opposite Cranston as Trumbo's wife, Cleo. Trumbo published his first novel, "Eclipse," in 1935 with his first screenplay, director Louis King's Road Gang , hitting the big screen the following year. With more than a dozen subsequent credits to his name, Trumbo was the highest paid screenwriter of his day when he was brought before Senator Joseph McCarthy's House Un-American Activities Committee. Refusing to testify, Trumbo was blacklisted, but continued to write »

A guide to avoiding Piers Morgan in modern motion pictures

1 April 2014 3:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Simon Brew 2 Apr 2014 - 06:05

Unfortunately, Piers Morgan has started popping up in a few movies now. Fortunately, we've figured out how you can avoid seeing him

For some reason, a growing number of American movies appear to be drafting in Piers Morgan to appear in small roles as a news reader/interviewer/general irritant. For those of us who really like movies, Morgan’s presence in them has not yet been a welcome one, and we’ve now heard that he’s recorded a scene or two for the upcoming Entourage film.

This article then is intended as a work of public service, and we’ll keep it up to date with Morgan’s appearances in film, should people continue to indulge him. So: here are the films to date that Morgan has appeared in, and the specific moments you need to skip if you want your viewing experience to be Morgan-free. »

Jason Sudeikis is the new Fletch

12 March 2014 4:41 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Jason Sudeikis has been pencilled in to step into the scruffy basketball sneakers of Irwin M Fletcher in Warner Bros’ Fletch Won. Based on the 1970s mystery novels of Gregory McDonald, the original Fletch saw Chevy Chase as an investigative reporter with a penchant for elaborate disguises, getting in over his head when an La businessman arranges to have himself murdered…by him. A big hit in 1985, Michael Ritchie’s film spawned a sequel four years later, Fletch Lives, in which Chase confronts murder, TV Evangelism and the Ku Klux Klan.

Since then, several attempts have been made to kick-start the franchise, notably by Kevin Smith who was announced as writer and director of Fletch Won for Miramax back in 2000. Now, Warners have given the green light to a new script that has attracted the attention of Jason Sudeikis. It is unknown at this stage if the film will be »

Jason Sudeikis Snags Lead Role In Fletch Won

11 March 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After residing in development hell for more than a decade, a reboot of the Chevy Chase comedy Fletch, titled Fletch Won, is finally moving forward with news that We’re the Millers star Jason Sudeikis is in talks for the lead role.

The project, which has been housed over at Warner Bros. since 2011, is described as a “gritty action comedy with heart.” Following an investigative reporter named I.M. Fletcher, Fletch Won will act as an origin story for the character. Unlike the two Fletch films toplined by Chevy ChaseFletch Won will hew quite closely to its source material, a series of mystery novels by Gregory McDonald.

Warner Bros. has had a tough time developing Fletch Won, going through quite a few iterations by various screenwriters (including Kevin Smith, who was also interested in directing at one point) before deciding on a script by David List, also the rep for McDonald’s estate. »

Watch: The Lego Movie Blooper Reel

13 February 2014 2:02 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Hit the jump to watch the outtake video.  The Lego Movie is currently playing in awesome theaters everywhere.

HBO Orders Tim Robbins And Jack Black To The Brink

12 February 2014 4:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having commissioned the pilot episode of The Brink – a half-hour dark political comedy – last year, HBO has now ordered the show to series, with Tim Robbins and Jack Black heading the cast.

The show centres around the main players caught in a geo-political crisis. Tim Robbins plays the Us Secretary of State, Walter Hollander, who has little patience for war-mongers, while Jack Black plays Alex Coppins – a Foreign Service Officer dealing with the crisis in the field. A third main role – that of a Navy fighter pilot – has yet to be cast, although the wider cast list includes Aasif Mandvi and Meera Syal. The pilot was written by brothers Roberto and Kim Benabib – Roberto having previously worked on Ally McBeal and Weeds. Both will also serve as executive producers, alongside stars Black and Robbins, Jerry Weintraub (Behind The Candelabra) and Jay Roach (The Austin Powers franchise, The Campaign), who also directed the pilot. »
