Dwayne Johnson is certainly starting to develop a knack for reinvigorating franchises; three of his last four movies have seen him joining the cast at the sequel stage, with Fast Five, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and G.I. Joe: Retaliation all raking in the cash at the box office. We already know he's set to return to the Fast & Furious franchise for this year's Fast & Furious 6 (along with next year's Fast & Furious 7, which has just been officially announced by Vin Diesel), and now it seems he's set to return to the role of Roadblock for G.I. Joe 3, which has already been given the green light by Paramount Pictures.
"What we would love to do with the sequel to G.I. Joe, which will definitely happen—we set ourselves up nicely with this past G.I. Joe because we really paid attention with respected homage to the mythology," said Johnson in an interview with Collider. »

Seven months ago, actor Dwayne Johnson confirmed that he and his "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" director Brad Peyton were set to re-team for the project, along with producer Joel Silver. Cut to this month with 'The Rock' out promoting "Snitch" and he says the film is no longer:
"It was for a minute, but then it kind of just went away, as things happen in Hollywood. For a minute, I was interested in it, but then it went away."
Instead, Johnson is busy prepping for Brett Ratner's upcoming "Hercules: The Thracian Wars" project. He also has a busy publicity tour schedule in the first half of this year with a film set to open on (or near) the last Friday of each month »

Dwayne Johnson has a shot at being one of the most prolific actors of 2013, because he has Snitch, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Empire State, Pain & Gain, and Fast and Furious 6 all set to hit theaters by the end of this year. Whew. He's gearing up to film Hercules: The Thracian Wars for director Brett Ratner next, but since he's so busy, something in his packed schedule had to give. MTV recently sat down with Johnson for an interview and asked him point blank whether he'll be playing Lobo in DC Comics' adaptation of the comic, and he unfortunately said that despite some initial interest, the project "went away." Bummer. More below! Guy Ritchie was once attached to direct the movie before he stepped away in favor of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and then Journey 2: The Mysterious Island director Brad Peyton scored the director's chair for Lobo last year. »

Super Bowl Xlvii takes place in the States tonight, which means TV audiences will get a sneak peek at some of Hollywood's upcoming movie offerings, with the studios paying out around $4 million per 30-second slot to advertise their wares for the coming blockbuster season.

Though his last film Son of No One didn't fare too well with the box office or critics, director Dito Montiel has a new film at Lionsgate awaiting a release date called Empire State, and a future project with an interesting lead actor. Variety has word that Robin Williams will lead Montiel's drama Boulevard, a drama written by Douglas Soesbe which follows a devoted husband in a marriage of convenience until a run-in with a guarded young man forces him to come to terms with his own secrets. The film will also mark a big debut for up and coming actor Roberto Aguire, who has an uncredited role in Struck by Lightning. Williams has been pretty low key on the big screen following Old Dogs in 2009, but he did reprise his voice role in Happy Feet 2. In addition, Williams also had two great guest appearances on the FX comedy »

1.) Ang Lee was just nominated for an Oscar this morning for his latest film, Life of Pi, and now reports say he's keen on directing Angelina Jolie in Cleopatra after David Fincher was the latest director to come and go, following in the footsteps of James Cameron and Paul Greengrass. "I'm about to read the script," Lee told The Hollywood Reporter. "It just feels right to me after all the other types of films I've done. What does it have in common with any of them? They're all totally different! That's what makes this perfect." The film has been gestating since 2010, so hopefully Lee strikes a deal and finally gets this thing made. 2.) Robin Williams will star in Boulevard, the next project from A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints helmer Dito Montiel. Williams will play a devoted husband in a marriage of convenience who meets a young man (newcomer Roberto »

Here’s one quick casting news – Robin Williams has joined the cast of Dito Montiel‘s (yes, Montiel is man who stands behind that crime pic Empire State with Dwayne Johnson and Liam Hemsworth in the leading roles) upcoming project titled Boulevard. The movie, described as an intimate drama about marriage and lies, already stars Roberto Aguire.
So, at this moment we know that Dito Montiel will direct Boulevard from a script written by Doulgas Soesbe, and that the story will center on a devoted husband in a marriage of convenience whose run-in with a guarded young man forces him to come to terms with his own secrets.
Not hard to guess that Williams is on board to star as that devoted husband, while Aguire will play the young man named Leo.
