James Bond 25 Director Wish List Includes Edgar Wright and Jean-Marc Vallee

A couple of names have emerged as possible directors for James Bond 25. Danny Boyle, after a reasonably long search, had signed on to direct what will ultimately be Daniel Craig's last go as 007, which seemed to be an exciting and interesting choice. Then he bailed earlier this week over creative differences. Now, producers are trying to find an accomplished and skilled writer/director relatively quickly. It turns out they could be looking at a couple of very interesting filmmakers; Jean-Marc Vallee and, believe it or not, Edgar Wright.

Starting with Jean-Marc Vall&#233e, who recently handled Big Little Lies and Sharp Objects over on HBO, which have both been quite successful and very well-received. According to a new report, they've actually approached him about the job. Unfortunately, it looks like his schedule is going to get in the way of him actually being able to take the gig. Outside of his TV work,

Not long after the series finale of sketch comedy powerhouse Key & Peele, Jordan Peele made his feature film directorial debut with Get Out, which quickly became a modern horror classic and earned Peele an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay in the process. Here, we'll take a look at 10 things you never knew about Get Out.

Eddie Murphy

During a red carpet interview at the film's premiere, Jordan Peele talked about a bit from the Eddie Murphy standup film Delirious and the influence it had on his movie's title. "Eddie Murphy is talking about the difference between how a white family and a black family would react in a haunted house," Peele told Entertainment Tonight. In the classic routine, Murphy says if a supernatural presence told a black family to "get out," they'd leave. "It's one of the best bits of all time," Peele said.

Slaughterhouse Rulez Trailer: Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Open a Gateway to Hell

Slaughterhouse Rulez Trailer: Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Open a Gateway to Hell
We haven't heard much about Slaughterhouse Rulez since it was first announced last summer. Today, Sony Pictures has released the first trailer and poster along with a surprise release date. The movie is coming to theaters this Halloween. Or at least it is in the U.K. A U.S. release date hasn't been announced yet.

In Slaughterhouse Rulez, a giant hole opens up near a boarding school unleashing hell, quite literally. The movie reunites Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, though they've left director Edgar Wright out of the equation this time. The two actors appear in the movie, but it's the young cast that really takes the lead here. And the movie looks like a lot of fun. It's a mix of Shaun of the Dead, Ghostbusters and maybe a little bit of Seth Rogen's This is the End. Sony only provided a very limited synopsis.

How comes he can scuttle off? He called all this on. Where is he? He’s in Europe, in Nice, with his trotters up, yeah, where is the geezer? I think he should be held account for it.”
