Rapper RZA Joins Anna Kendrick, Sam Rockwell For Action-Comedy, Mr. Right

7 October 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rapper, producer, and filmmaker RZA is set to bolster his acting credentials even further by joining Paco Cabezas’ romantic action-comedy, Mr. Right.

According to Deadline, RZA — real name Robert Fitzgerald Diggs — will star alongside Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick in the film, which follows a young woman (Kendrick) who falls head over heels for the seemingly perfect man. However, as the story unfolds, we learn that the titular Mr. Right just so happens to moonlight as a hitman — now that’s a gnarly skeleton to keep locked up in the closet.

Nonetheless, in terms of RZA’s role, it’s understood the celebrated rapper will step into the shoes of Shotgun Steve, a trained marksman who collaborates with an opposing gangster. At this stage, that’s all we have in terms of plot details, though Deadline reports that Max Landis — the scribe behind 2012’s excellent found footage superhero flick, Chronicle. »

7 actresses land on new True Detective season 2 shortlist

15 September 2014 10:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Contrary to reports citing that actresses like Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) and Rachel McAdams (About Time) were close to signing deals to appear on the hotly anticipated second season of True Detective, their names do not appear on a new shortlist released by TheWrap. Today the site revealed the names of seven actresses currently vying to fill one of the series’ leading roles.

The actresses in question are, Brit Marling (The Keeping Room), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Jaimie Alexander (Thor), Kelly Reilly (Eden Lake), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Rosario Dawson (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) and Jessica Biel (Total Recall).

The actresses have reportedly been “invited back to read this week for the coveted role.” Moss and McAdams could very well still be in the running, but with writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto now focusing on auditioning a new group of actresses, he’s clearly taking all options into consideration. »

Comedy thriller polarises critics

14 September 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Kriv Stenders' Kill Me Three Times may well have had a .boisterously enthusiastic reception. at its Toronto International Film Festival premiere, as The Sydney Morning Herald reported last week.

However the critics in Toronto were far from unanimous in their judgments on the comedy-thriller that stars Simon Pegg as an assassin who encounters a group of increasingly violent locals who carry their own dark secrets.

Sullivan Stapleton, Teresa Palmer, Callan Mulvey, Luke Hemsworth, Alice Braga and Bryan Brown co-star in the film scripted by James McFarland and produced by Laurence Malkin, Share Stallings, Tania Chambers. EOne, which will release the film in Australia next year, hasn.t revealed the launch date.

The pro- camp saw a very funny, cleverly plotted and crowd-pleasing film that subverts expectations.

The anti- brigade saw a mediocre, derivative crime potboiler.

Stenders and Chambers understandably are keen to stress the Tiff audiences. reactions and the positive reviews. »

'Kill Me Three Times': Toronto Review

12 September 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Enough with the imitators. Riding a wave that has long since crested, Australian director Kriv StendersKill Me Three Times throws a lot of primo resources at a film that advertises its deadpan coolness like a banner out front of a parade. This derivative smoothie appears to have been made by putting Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez and the Coen Brothers into a blender along with Martin McDonagh’s Seven Psychopaths. The brash result squanders a talented cast, sharp visuals and spectacular locations on a grisly trail of mayhem that rarely yields much mirth. While its droll, dark humor more often reads

Blu-ray Release Date: Sept. 9, 2014

Price: Blu-ray $29.99

Studio: Twilight Time

Christopher Walken goes to the gun--a helluvan gun--in The Dogs of War

The 1980 action-filled war thriller film The Dogs of War is based upon the 1974 novel of the same name by Frederick Forsyth.

Directed by John Irvin, the film stars Christopher Walken (Seven Psychopaths) and Tom Berenger (The Big Chill) as part of a small, international unit of mercenary soldiers privately hired to depose President Kimba of a fictional “Republic of Zangaro”, in Africa, so that a British tycoon can gain mining access to a huge platinum deposit.

The Dogs of War title is a phrase from Shakespeare’s play Julius Caesar, which uses the line “Cry, ‘Havoc!’, and let slip the dogs of war.” But we didn’t have to tell you that.

The Dogs of War release by Twilight Time represents the film’s Blu-ray debut!

Calvary

Calvary

Directed by: John Michael McDonagh

Cast: Brendan Gleeson, Chris O’Dowd, Kelly Reilly, Aiden Gillen

Running Time: 1 hr 40 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: August 8, 2014 (Chicago)

Plot: A priest of a small town (Gleeson) has a week to live after being threatened by a random man during confession.

Who’S It For? Those who like dialogue-based films where the energy is in the ideas, and even its editing.

Overall

In Christopher Guest’s 1989 satire The Big Picture, Kevin Bacon plays Nick Chapman, nubile filmmaker who dreams of splashing into the world of directing by creating a rapturous black and white tome on life and death a la Ingmar Bergman for his first feature. Cherry-picked right from film school after making a hot short film, he attempts to create this supposed opus before the rest of The Big Picture’s narrative takes hold, in which Bacon loses creative control of his »

Exclusive Video Interview With Brendan Gleeson And Kelly Reilly On Calvary

6 August 2014 9:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While most people are likely familiar with Martin McDonagh, the British director behind brilliant dark comedies like In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths, his brother John Michael, is perhaps less well known. He made his directorial debut in 2011 with The Guard, an excellent comedy/thriller starring Don Cheadle and Brendan Gleeson. Now, he’s gearing up to release his second effort, Calvary, which once again sees him teaming up with the Irish actor.

In the film, Gleeson plays Father James, a good-natured priest who is one day threatened during confession and finds his eyes opening to forces of darkness all around him. It’s an intriguing premise that proves to be ripe for McDonagh’s distinctive touch. With strong performances from the entire cast and a compelling story, Calvary is a nice break from the typical summer fare that’s been hitting theatres and it should definitely be on your watch list. »

Review: John Michael McDonagh's Inventive, Masterful Black Comedy 'Calvary'

30 July 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Something black and acidic runs through the veins of those McDonagh brothers; there’s just something not quite right with these lads...and thank goodness for that. Playwright and younger sibling Martin McDonagh made a splash in Ireland’s theater scene with his hilarious, tart, pitch-black plays and then impressed film audiences with two wicked black comedies (“In Bruges” and “Seven Psychopaths”). Older bro John Michael McDonagh possesses a similar talent, and an ear for devilish dialogue, and having penned “Ned Kelly,” he made his feature-length debut with the cheeky, underrated black comedy “The Guard” (underrated internationally, that is; the film is the most successful Irish film of all time in Ireland). If you don’t know these guys, you need to remedy that immediately. For McDonagh’s similarly irreverent, but darker sophomore effort, “Calvary,” the filmmaker reteams with his ‘Guard’ star Brendan Gleeson for an inspired story about a benevolent Irish priest tormented. »

10 Directors We’d Like to See Working on True Detective Season 2

22 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

True Detective was a series which took everyone by surprise earlier this year. Created and written by Nic Pizzolatto and starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, it was a fascinating character study and a gripping crime thriller which had everyone talking and coming up with their own theories, and even theories on those theories.

The first season of True Detective (which consisted of eight episodes) was directed solely by Cary Joji Fukunaga, and while the Jane Eyre director seemed like an odd choice, there’s no doubting the fact that he did an incredible job. However, a commitment to adapting Stephen King’s It means that he will likely be too busy to return to direct so much as a single episode for the highly anticipated second season.

Since that was revealed, there has been some talk of hiring a number of different directors – similar to Game of Thrones and »

Colin Farrell In Talks For True Detective

13 July 2014 9:56 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The first season of HBO’s True Detective was a big success for the Us cable channel, scoring acclaim for its twisty, complex, thoughtful plotting and dark-skewing performances from Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, who both won Emmy nominations for their work. Given the show’s anthology style, neither will return for season 2, and The Wrap reports that Colin Farrell is now in talks to step in.HBO isn’t commenting on casting rumours, so Farrell’s involvement won’t be confirmed until there’s an official announcement. But he’s certainly a solid choice for the cop drama. In addition to the Seven Psychopaths star, Taylor Kitsch is also being floated as a likely co-star. He’s had a rough time of it in cinemas, but Kitsch was praised for his turn on HBO’s TV movie The Normal Heart and of course used to do great work on TV's Friday Night Lights. »

Colin Farrell in Talks for True Detective Season Two; Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund Also Eyed

11 July 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Despite how impressive the first few trailers for True Detective were, it’s fair to say that no one could have ever predicted just how huge the critically acclaimed series would become, creating intense speculation and theories online, and later the extremely funny #TrueDetectiveSeason2 hashtag.

Despite both being nominated for Emmys and a host of other awards, neither Matthew McConaughey or Woody Harrelson will return for season two of True Detective after their stories were wrapped up in the first eight episodes. A number of names have since been suggested and rumoured to replace them.

Well, we finally have something a little more definite as Deadline reports that Seven Psychopaths and Saving Mr. Banks star Colin Farrell is deep in talks for one of what is expected to be three main roles.

The Irish actor looks set to be joined by John Carter and Savages star Taylor Kitsch who The »

Colin Farrell In Talks For True Detective Season 2, Taylor Kitsch Also Eyed

11 July 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Update: TheWrap adds that Taylor Kitsch, coming off strong reviews in HBO’s The Normal Heart, is also primed to snag a coveted lead role in True Detective. He’s apparently in contention with On the Road actor Garrett Hedlun but currently has the edge. TheWrap’s report also states that HBO was intent on landing a movie star, someone “rugged and gritty,” for the part Farrell ultimately received.

Original: At long last, the pieces are falling into place for the second season of HBO’s brilliant, game-changing True Detective, with word that Colin Farrell (In Bruges) is being eyed for one of four lead roles in the Nic Pizzolatto-created and scripted anthology series.

Deadline’s Mike Fleming has the scoop, saying that he can confirm Farrell is “deep in negotiations” to join the cast of the second season, which will begin filming later this year and is due »

Guy Pearce Might Declare War On Everyone For Director John Michael McDonagh

10 July 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There are a few different ways you might have heard of Irish director John Michael McDonagh: as the director of Calvary, a film that will have its American debut in August; as the director of the excellent and underrated film The Guard, starring Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle; or as the brother of Martin McDonagh, the man behind In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths. Unlike his brother, John Michael McDonagh has not quite made a name for himself stateside, although anyone seeking out his films is sure to be pleasantly surprised. He’s working on building a name for himself though, and perhaps Calvary or his next feature, War on Everyone, will provide his ticket to American fame.

McDonagh is currently engaged with casting War on Everyone, which already has Michael Pena and Garrett Hedlund attached as two corrupt cops who blackmail criminals. For the part of the real villain, »

Jersey Boys movie review: it’s not only rock ’n’ roll…

18 June 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Director Clint Eastwood’s discomfort with his own material is enormous and obvious. Does he just not get pop music, or is he actively disdainful and suspicious of it? I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not seen the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I’m hearing it in sky blue,” complains music producer Bob Crewe in the middle of recording a track with the group that will later be called The Four Seasons. “You’re giving me brown.”

Alas, the same could be said to director Clint Eastwood of his film adaptation of the Broadway and West End hitJersey Boys, about the rise and rise and rise — with only a little bit of stumbling — of the now legendary Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. This is a stodgy mess of a movie in which a mostly »
