U Turn (1997)
Ridley is also attached to direct the project, based on his six-issue monthly miniseries published in 2017 by DC Entertainment’s Vertigo label. Ridley wrote the story with illustrator George Jeanty in what was a sequel to their 2007 graphic novel “The American Way,” in which a team of 1960s superheroes were created and called the Civil Defense Corps. The story focuses on Jason Fisher’s the New American, a black man given super strength but a limited pain threshold while the rest of the corps is torn apart by racism and murder.
Ridley won the Academy Award for best adapted screenplay for “12 Years a Slave.” His other film credits include “Ben-Hur,” “Undercover Brother,” “U Turn,” “Three Kings,” “Red Tails,” and the Jimi Hendrix biopic

You might not know the name Chris Smith, but you’ll probably have seen at least one of his films. In 2004 he made the tube (even more?) terrifying with horror movie Creep, and a decade later he took on Father Christmas in the underrated Get Santa. With a varied filmography spanning horror, comedy, and historical action under his belt, Chris has gone stateside for his latest film – a neo-noir road trip movie starring Tye Sheridan, Emory Cohen and Bel Powley. We caught up with him for a quick chat about writing and directing Detour, and what he’s moving onto next.
Were there any films in particular that inspired the stylistic feel of Detour, and how much of the film did you visualise when working on the script?
That’s a very good question. In terms of the visual style, everything starts for me from the narrative style,
The Entertainment Weekly report doesn't reveal if there will be an autopsy performed or not. The actor was born June 1, 1948 in Snyder, Texas, USA, the son of a sharecropper who spent his youth chopping cotton and became the first member of his family to attend a university, receiving a fellowship to Southern Methodist University to study acting, where he received a degree in Fine Arts. After performing in Oregon, Connecticut and Philadelphia, the actor arrived in New
His publicist confirmed the sad news to TVLine, adding that the actor died in his sleep of natural causes. A private service will be held in Boothe’s home state of Texas, and a memorial celebration is also being considered, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The news of his passing was first shared on Twitter by his friend actor Beau Bridges.
It's with great sadness that I mourn the passing of my friend Powers Boothe. A dear friend, great actor, devoted father & husband.

Boothe started his acting career in the theater, starring in various Shakespearean productions including “Henry IV.” He made his Broadway debut in the
Boothe enjoyed a four decade career that saw him mould into a variety of roles on the big and small screen. The actor was most recently known for the character Senator Roarke in Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City (2005) and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014). He also appeared in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers as Gideon Malick, a role he would reprise in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for 11 episodes last year. He’s also voiced Gorilla Grodd in the animated Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.
Boothe also appeared as Vice President Noah Daniels in the hit TV series 24, as well as in Oliver Stone’s U Turn and the Jean Claude Van Damme
Jennifer Lopez is en fuego! *Insert multiple flame emojis here*
The multi-hyphenated talent abs-olutely shut down the red carpet at the Billboard Latin Music Awards in Miami on Thursday in a jaw-dropping gown. Lopez, 47, looked incredible in a sparkly black ensemble from Julien Macdonald’s Fall 2017 ready-to-wear collection.
If the plunging neckline and high leg slit weren’t statement-making enough, all the cutaway details in her long sleeve look made it appear like she was wearing the most haute couture netting.

Jennifer Lopez has appeared in Gigli, U Turn and The Wedding Planner.
Based on a short story by Robert Silverberg, “Needle in a Timestack” centers on a devoted husband who will stop at nothing to save his marriage when it’s destroyed by a time-traveling rival.
How John Ridley Juggles Three Prestigious Shows — Without Sacrificing Quality
Vince Gerardis (“Game of Thrones”) and Matt Kennedy will executive produce. Zanne Devine and David Thwaites will oversee the project for Miramax.
Ridley’s current projects include “Guerilla,” debuting on Showtime this Sunday; the ABC News documentary “Let It Fall” about the 1992 Los Angeles riots, also in theaters later this month; and the third season of ABC’s “American Crime,” on which he serves as showrunner and creator.
Ridley won the Academy Award for best adapted screenplay for “12 Years a Slave.” His other film credits include “Ben Hur,
We examine the recent Val Kilmer movies, that happened to have bypasses cinemas...
Once upon a time, Val Kilmer’s individual look - defined by a little Swedish blood from his mother’s side - had hearts pumping. Those looks, along with his arrogant, edgy attitude and acting style, helped him clinch plenty of complimentary roles during the 80s and early-90s. Films like Top Secret, Top Gun, Willow and my personal favourite Real Genius were pushing him toward a stellar career back then, and his star was steadily rising.

But Kilmer came down from a serious high of Heat and Tombstone in the mid-90s when he signed on to the notorious clusterfuck that was The Island Of Dr. Moreau, and only recently has the part he played in its disastrous production come to light.
You know what will make me feel like it's the late 1990s again real quick? (If you answered "There's a Clinton in the White House" you're a little ahead of yourself, but just by a few months.) What will make me feel like it's the late 1990s again real quick is watching a movie about verbose criminals getting themselves into hyper-violent timeline-warping shenanigans - Things To Do In Denver When You're 8 Heads In A Duffel Bag; that ol' Pulp Fiction addiction.
Do you guys remember that time Oliver Stone tried to out-Tarantino Tarantino (even though Tarantino was always really trying to out-Stone Stone) and made U Turn? That's the Tarantino-ish that Detour reminded me the most of. And U Turn's not a bad thing to be reminded of! U Turn is nuts, in a never not entertaining way!

“American Sniper” earned six Academy Awards nominations on Thursday morning, including for Best Picture and a Best Actor nod for Bradley Cooper, who beefed himself up to play real life Navy Seal Chris Kyle — the U.S. military’s all-time leader in confirmed kills — and turned in a commanding performance by most accounts.
The nominations committee submitted in their votes well before “American Sniper’s” wide release on Friday, but would the critics offer up as much praise?
