Emmerich directs from a script by Wes Tooke.
Born Robert Fitzgerald Diggs, the artist began releasing features six years ago. Rather than a career pivot, moviemaking represented coming full circle in the entertainment industry: the very first Wu-Tang album (“Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers”) took its name from the 1978 film “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin.” In it, a fugitive college student travels to a Shaolin temple to master kung-fu, plotting revenge on his tyrannical government. During “RZA: Movies, Music, and Martial Arts” — his recent Hall H talk at San Diego Comic-Con — RZA recalled why Liu Chia-liang’s epic resonated for him and his bandmates.

Pacino will play Marvin Shwarz — Leonardo DiCaprio’s character’s agent in the Sony film — marking his first collaboration with Tarantino. Dating back to his first feature film, 1992’s “Reservoir Dogs,” Tarantino has always cast movie stars he grew up watching, from Robert Forster in “Jackie Brown” to David Carradine in the “Kill Bill” films. Pacino fits that mold of A-list actors who rose to fame in the 1970s.
Also joining the cast are Damian Lewis, who will play acting icon Steve McQueen, Luke Perry as Scotty Lancer, Emile Hirsch as hairstylist Jay Sebring, Dakota Fanning as Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme — a member of the Manson family — Clifton Collins as Ernesto the Mexican Vaquero, Keith Jefferson as Land Pirate Keith, and Nicholas Hammond as legendary director Sam Wanamaker.

Uma Thurman will headline Chambers, a supernatural-ish Netflix television drama.
Uma Thurman is set to board the Netflix content juggernaut. The actress will headline a series for the streaming giant, a 10-episode hourlong offering with supernatural themes, called Chambers.
Netflix gave the project a straight-to-series order back in January 2018. It is the creation of writer Leah Rachel, an actress who's been juggling creative duties, having written for the 2012 TV series, Audrey, and directed a few short films. Rachel will serve as co-showrunner with Akela Cooper, who wields more experience in that department, having written and produced shows such as Luke Cage, American Horror Story, The 100 and Grimm.
Chambers will depict the story of a young heart attack survivor whose life was saved by a heart transplant. However, she starts to raise crucial questions about her new heart, eventually learning the terrible truth about the donor’s death.
The 48-year-old actress spoke to Entertainment Weekly about her relationship with Tarantino in a story published on Friday, revealing just three months after first opening up about their fallout that she still hopes to collaborate with him one day.

Is Quentin Tarantino Going to Direct a Star Trek Film?
Christmas and martial arts movies? They rarely crossover. But amazing fights in the snow? Now we're in business...
I love martial arts movies and I love Christmas so I'm kinda sad that the two have never really come together (Kung Fu Panda Holiday doesn't count). I'd hoped to find at least one good example to write about, as we move into the festive period, but I guess since most martial arts films come from Buddhist countries and Christmas is a Christian holiday, I was destined for disappointment.
I did briefly consider making one up with the aid of Photoshop, but wasn't sure I could get away with it so, alas, The 25th Advent Chamber Of Shaolin is not to be. For what it's worth, I'd got as far as an apprentice monk named Ho, fighting his way through 25 'doors' of a giant temple designed to resemble an advent calendar.
"Sources said that Tarantino has come up with a great idea for a Star Trek movie at Paramount. After sharing his idea with J.J. Abrams (who himself is busy prepping Star Wars Episode IX), I've heard the plan is to assemble a writers room of scribes who'll hear Tarantino's take and begin to put together a movie.
It seems like forever since Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was in theaters. After all, there have been three superhero hits (Wonder Woman, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok) and one flop (Justice League) since then. But for those of you who have been waiting to see the April release on your home screens, December brings good news, as the Guardians and many more new titles come to Netflix.
December is right around the corner and with it comes holiday greetings, inexplicable fruitcake, and the inevitable visits from family members. So in order to help you get in the mood or to keep those holiday guests entertained, the streaming services are here to help you whether you’ve been naughty or nice.
Netflix is helping to kickstart the Christmas
What's good? Apologies because I don't have much to say or talk about this week, except remark on how I'm still in a pretty pleasant mood moving out of Thanksgiving weekend and into the holiday season.
And part of what prolonged my pleasant mood was to find an admittedly 2-year-old video of movie star Keanu Reeves on promotional tour promoting John Wick in Japan discussing his admiration for martial arts film legend Sonny Chiba (of The Street Fighter or Kill Bill fame), influencing his physical choreography and style. Lo and behold, Chiba was in the studio ready to meet with Keanu and the Matrix star is suddenly starstruck to meet him and begins waxing rhapsodic over Chiba's work. Seeing such a household star in the industry be taken aback by the presence of figure that certainly isn't as well-known internationally as Reeves brought a smile to my face.
A new lawsuit filed by an actress against Kill Bill producer Harvey Weinstein alleges that Weinstein engaged not just in sexual harassment and assault, but international sex trafficking as well. The allegations arise from the claims of actress Kadian Noble, who says that Weinstein targeted her in Europe and then groomed her for work in the United States, suggesting that she needed to trade sex for help with her acting career.

Harvey Weinstein was slapped with a civil lawsuit Monday charging him with sex trafficking tied to an alleged assault in Cannes, France.
Aspiring actress Kadian Noble’s lawsuit claims Weinstein first “groomed” her for the alleged assault in London, when he told her that “he had a role in mind for her and that ‘it will be good for you.'”

While wishing her Instagram followers a happy Thanksgiving, Uma Thurman decided to finally open up a bit about her experience with sexual misconduct in Hollywood. She made use of the popular #metoo hashtag that many people used in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal to spread awareness of sexual harassment. While she didn't detail her experience, she did not mince words when speaking ill of Weinstein, who she feels is getting the slowly served fate he deserves. Here's what she had to say.
In honor of Thanksgiving, Uma Thurman took to Instagram to wish all her followers a happy and healthy Thanksgiving Weekend – all except one: Harvey Weinstein.
Earlier this month, Thurman made the headlines when a red carpet interview went viral. Visibly shaking with anger, the Kill Bill actress addressed the sexual harassment and abuse accusations festering within Hollywood and chose her words carefully: “When I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.” It appears that day is now very, very close.
Thurman’s latest Instagram post ended with a “stay tuned,” indicating that she’s ready to come forward with fresh allegations against Harvey Weinstein, whom she worked under for Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill. Her full post can be viewed below, and, well, let’s just say that Uma Thurman isn’t fucking around.
