Coming off her critically acclaimed and SAG/Golden Globe nominated turn as Maeve in HBO's Westworld, Variety reports that Thandie Newton is in negotiations to join the upcoming Han Solo spinoff in an undisclosed role.

The still untitled Han Solo movie recently commenced production and is set to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.

Lake Bell falls for Simon Pegg in the trailer for romantic comedy Man Up

  • JoBlo
If you have to sit through a romantic comedy, the least the producers could do would be cast Simon Pegg. I have been a fan of Pegg's going back to his sitcom Spaced and the films of Edgar Wright. I sat through Run Fatboy Run and How To Lose Friends And Alienate People just because Pegg was in them. So, while I would likely pass the trailer for Man Up, seeing Pegg's name gave me reason to check it out. Man Up starts out like Bridget Jones' Diary with Lake Bell (doing an awful English...

Watch Simon Pegg And Lake Bell In First Trailer For Romantic Comedy Man Up

Following his success in the wonderfully wacky British TV series Spaced, Simon Pegg’s leap to the big screen has seen him catapulted into mega-franchises like Star Trek and Mission: Impossible (and possibly even Star Wars). One step of that journey involved dabbling in a few rom-coms which landed with mixed results (Run Fatboy Run, Hector and the Search For Happiness). While he’s switching up the material for the forthcoming assassin comedy Kill Me Three Times, which is getting a Us release next month, he hasn’t quite abandoned the romance oeuvre just yet.

In Man Up, Pegg joins Lake Bell as a couple who inadvertently share a romantic evening together. His hopeless singleton initiates a date with a prospective partner he recently met online. In a twist of incident, however, as is often the case in the world of rom-com matchmaking, he doesn’t meet who he’s

Beam Us Up, Scotty: Simon Pegg Set To Co-Write Star Trek 3

Following the abrupt departure of writer-director Roberto Orci, many wondered who would be drafted in to help with the script for Star Trek 3. Granted, Fast & Furious helmer Justin Lin picked up the megaphone and stepped into the director’s chair, but today we’ve learned that Simon Pegg himself will serve as co-writer on the screenplay.

News comes to us via Deadline, after the outlet revealed that the actor — who plays Montgomery “Scotty” Scott in the sci-fi films — will work in tandem with fellow screenwriter Doug Jung in shepherding the upcoming threequel to the silver screen. Though it may seem like an odd decision, don’t forget that Pegg had an integral role in scripting Edgar Wright’s Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, not to mention Run Fatboy Run, so the actor is well versed in working in behind and in front of the camera simultaneously.

Additionally, Pegg’s involvement

Simon Pegg and Doug Jung to co-write Star Trek 3
Simon Pegg and Doug Jung have been hired to write the script for Star Trek 3.

The pair will take over from previous writers Roberto Orci, Patrick McKay and John D Payne, who departed the project after Orci left as director.

Pegg stars as Enterprise engineer Scotty in the Star Trek movies, but has penned Cornetto Trilogy films Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End as well as Run Fatboy Run and Paul.

Jung co-created the TNT cop series Dark Blue and won the Trek job after impressing producer Jj Abrams's Bad Robot company and Paramount with his script Diamonds, according to Deadline.

Fast & Furious's Justin Lin is on board to direct the latest Star Trek instalment.

The film is reportedly being lined up for release in 2016 to mark the 50th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry's science fiction series. Watch the trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness

David Schwimmer To Be A Friend To Matt LeBlanc In ‘Episodes’

Larry David recently rewrote the rulebook on TV reunions when he staged a comeback for Seinfeld within Curb Your Enthusiasm. That idea seems to have rubbed off on the Friends personnel – ironic really, as David has accused them of plundering his sitcom in the past. With the 20th anniversary of the mates-based smash in peoples’ minds we’ve seen Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow reconvene on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Now David Schwimmer has reportedly signed up to appear as himself in Episodes. The fish-out-of-water BBC comedy, created by the Friends team of David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik and starring Matt LeBlanc, is entering its fourth series and it seems they are celebrating the Big Two Oh by getting Schwimmer back to reminisce about Ross.

The source for this sensational story? Erm, The Sun. But it’s a likely bet that Schwimmer would be amenable to the idea. He

Cuban Fury Review

  • TheMovieBit
Mostly known for forming the second part of the Cornetto Trilogy double act with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost steps up with his first leading role in Cuban Fury, a romantic comedy which takes us inside the heady world of salsa dancing. Frost plays Bruce Garrett a former salsa child prodigy who has let himself seriously go in later life. When he discovers his new boss (Rashida Jones) has taken up salsa dancing, he decides to brush off his sequin shirts and dancing shoes in order to win her heart. There is nothing in Cuban Fury we haven't seen before (comparison's to Simon Pegg's Run Fatboy Run will no doubt run thorough peoples heads when watching this), but director James Griffiths, making his feature debut after working on t.v. shows Episodes and Up all Night, keeps proceeding endlessly charming and entertaining. It does recycle some old romantic comedy cliches,

Cuban Fury Review

  • HeyUGuys
Dancing in Great Britain has come a long way since Billy Elliott. Popularised on national television with a wealth of talent shows such as Strictly Come Dancing, you could even go as far as calling it fashionable. Director James Griffiths, alongside writer Jon Brown, are seemingly aware of that fact – as they present their respective cinematic debut, Cuban Fury, starring Nick Frost in his very first leading role without his longstanding collaborator, Simon Pegg.

Frost plays Bruce Garrett, a former Salsa champion who gave up the sport when he was attacked on his way to the national championships as a youngster. Insisting that dancing is for sissies, Bruce is lured back on to the dance floor when he discovers that his new boss (Rashida Jones) harbours a compulsion for the art form. However the dormant fire in Bruce’s heels will take some reigniting, as both his friends, and former

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost: the triumph of the nerds

Shortly to be reunited onscreen in The World's End, and with a host of solo TV and film projects in the works, the comic boy-man duo seem to be going from strength to strength

What a pleasure, what a sugar rush, giddy-kipper joy it is to watch Simon Pegg and Nick Frost together in a film by Edgar Wright. I went to see a preview of The World's End, the final part of the Pegg/Frost/Wright "three flavours Cornetto" trilogy, and I laughed and laughed for three-quarters of an hour. Then I stopped, as we were only allowed to see the first 45 minutes of the film, for some reason. Either the special effects people were still cranking out the CGI, or the last hour is Really Bad (not so, according to those who have now seen it).

Anyway, the part I saw zipped by, a slick, high-spirited blast of jokes and small-town action,

Simon Pegg To Star In Brit List Romantic Comedy 'Man Up'

For the most part, Simon Pegg has traversed the comfortable milieu of genre films. Making his mark with Edgar Wright and Nick Frost on their Cornetto films, he's dipped into the blockbuster world with the "Star Trek," "Tintin" and "Mission: Impossible" franchises, while doing one off stuff like "Fantastic Fear Or Everything" or "Burke And Hare" that are still very much in his wheelhouse. However, he has taken strides before into more mainstream, less fantastical fare with stuff like "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People" and "Run Fatboy Run," but yeah, they weren't that successful. But he'll give it another go. In the pages of the most recent issue of Empire, it's revealed in a profile of Pegg that he's attached to star in "Man Up." Penned by Tess Morris, the script made the 2011 Brit List, there are few details on it except that it's a romantic comedy, but we're

Band of Brothers – Where are they now?

Twelve years ago, HBO put to screen a miniseries that was one part Television event, one part historical drama, which had the considerable backing of executive producers Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks and the hype of being something of a spiritual successor to their highly acclaimed war film Saving Private Ryan. Through ten one hour long episodes, essentially using TV as a medium to explore a vast and epic journey through the Second World War that would simply be impossible to map on the big screen, and with Stephen E Ambrose’s critically acclaimed non-fiction book as source material and a huge cast representing a collective of real world heroes, one of the most ambitious storytelling exercises the small screen has ever mounted was brought to life. The result was much fanfare, both critically and among the masses, a recurring trope that continues to this day, and the fledgling start
