The Equalizer screenwriter working on “re-imagining” of Universal Soldier

Richard Wenk, the screenwriter behind The Equalizer, The Expendables 2 and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, has revealed that he’s been working on a “re-imagining” of the cult 1992 action sci-fi Universal Soldier starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren.

“I will say that I’m just finishing up a re-imagining — let’s be clear about this it’s not a remake and it is not a redo — but it is a re-imagining of a movie called Universal Soldier,” Wenk tells Discussing Film. “Very much like The Equalizer, it’s the title that inspired me and not the movies…I’m just about to finish (the script) and turn it in this week.”

Directed by Roland Emmerich (Independence Day), Universal Soldier saw Van Damme and Lundgren as two U.S. soldiers killed in Vietnam, who are resurrected decades later as part of the secret military program, UniSol, to create an elite counter-terrorism unit.

15 CGI Villains That Hurt Their Movies (And 10 That Saved Them)

Blockbuster movies ditched costumes and puppets for the easier route of creating creatures and effects with layers upon layers of CGI sometime in the '90s, and action heroes have been acting against tennis balls ever since.

You can blame James Cameron for that, as he pioneered the use of CG with Industrial Light and Sound for his 1989 movie The Abyss. The early effect of a liquid, shape-shifting alien hasn’t exactly aged like fine wine, be Cameron later perfected the effect for his 1992 Terminator sequel.

After this, blockbuster movies were changed for good. Action superstars like Stephen Spielberg and Roland Emmerich quickly followed Cameron’s lead, combing practical effects with CGI in iconic movies like Jurassic Park and Independence Day. Nowadays, some studios ditch sets, stunts, and even costumes in favour of green screens and motion-capture.

Of course, it doesn’t always work out for the better. We’ve

Jeff Goldblum Answers the Web’s Most Searched Questions About Himself

 For those who are more familiar with his face than his name, Jeff Goldblum is an American actor who has been appearing in some very well-known movies ever since the 1980s.

Gemini Man Poster Splits Will Smith in Half

Update; We have been informed by Paramount Pictures that this is not an official Gemini Man poster. It is fan-made. Official first look posters, images and a trailer will be forthcoming.

Original Story: The first poster for director Ang Lee's Gemini Man has made its way online. This represents a return to action movies for Lee, who has been focused on more dramatic and ultimately awards-friendly fare over the course of the last fifteen years or so. Hulk left a bad taste in his mouth too, apparently. This time around, he's brought Will Smith along for the ride in what could be one of the more intriguing blockbusters coming our way in 2019.

Currently, there isn't a ton of plot information available for Gemini Man, but the poster plays on what we do know. We see a split down the middle, teasing two different version of Will Smith. This movie

Review: McQuarrie's 'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' is a Megaton Blast

Directed by Brian De Palma and starring Tom Cruise, Mission: Impossible was a critical and commercial success when it opened in May of 1996. Based on the 1960s CBS series of the same name, the action-packed spy thriller grossed $75 million in its first six days, surpassing the record set by Jurassic Park, and became the third highest-grossing film of that year, bested only by Twister and Independence Day.

Is Sacha Baron Cohen Teasing New Donald Trump-Themed Project In July 4 Tweet?
In a Twitter post today, Sacha Baron Cohen shared a video message that appears to tease a new project with Donald Trump and the now-defunct Trump University as its central themes. The tweet is headlined: “A message from your President @realDonaldTrump on Independence Day” and includes a clip of Trump dissing the Borat and Ali G star, saying Baron Cohen should “go to school” to “learn about being funny.” The video (check it out below) then concludes with the text “Sacha graduates. Soon,” followed by the Trump University logo. Earlier in the video, Baron Cohen’s face is superimposed along with the words, “He’s back as you’ve never seen him before.”

Baron Cohen and Trump have a long, contentious history. The former interviewed a pre-potus Trump years ago for Da Ali G Show, trying to get him to invest in “an ice cream glove.” Trump has said he

3 Successful Franchise Revivals and 3 Failures

George Chrysostomou with three successful franchise revivals and three failures…

Franchise revivals are an ever present part of Hollywood today. Whilst audiences love sequels, prequels, original properties and reboots, there’s nothing quite as nostalgic as a franchise revival – taking a property from years ago, giving it a fresh coat of paint and selling it as a continuation or perhaps an improvement over what it once was. This list features sequels and reboots, but most of all puts the emphasis on the return of fan favourite franchises that may or may not have lost their way. First I would like to point out some honourable mentions. For a success it has to be the Jurassic Park series, which has continued to go from strength to strength in both movies and games, while Spider-Man is another that has been reinvigorated. As for failures, RoboCop is one such property, and another memorable

Mission: Impossible Revisited: Tom Cruise Lights the Fuse

In just under a month, the sixth installment of Paramount's Mission: Impossible franchise, Mission: Impossible Fallout, will hit theaters, bringing Tom Cruise's iconic Ethan Hunt character back for another edge-of-your-seat adventure. As we get ready for Ethan Hunt's return, and what has been said to be Tom Cruise's most death-defying stunt yet, we're going to revisit the franchise from the beginning, examining one movie a week before Fallout's release on July 27, and we begin with the one that started it all ,1996's Mission: Impossible.

Tom Cruise had already been a global mega-star by the time he came aboard to star and produce Mission: Impossible, which was the first film produced under his Cruise/Wagner Productions company with longtime producing partner Paula Wagner. This franchise, however, would help Cruise cement his legacy as one of the few action stars who insists on doing all of his own stunts, which
