Uncharted Movie Lands 10 Cloverfield Lane Director

The Uncharted movie has found a new director. Late last year, we got the news that Stranger Things producer and Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy had departed the video game adaptation after spending a good deal of time developing it with Sony. Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts got in the way of him being able to actually see it through to the end. Now, we have word that 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg will be the latest filmmaker to take a crack at bringing the tale of Nathan Drake to the big screen.

According to a new report, Dan Trachtenberg has signed on to direct the Uncharted movie, with Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War star Tom Holland still expected to star as Nathan Drake. Originally, the idea was to have an older, more seasoned actor such as Mark Wahlberg or Bradley Cooper (who were both attached to the

Rami Malek's Impressive Career Before Bohemian Rhapsody Will Rock You

Paying homage to rock legend Freddie Mercury's life, the biopic Bohemian Rhapsody stars many of the biggest names in the English movie industry, including Lucy Boynton and Tom Hollander. Its leading man, Rami Malek, is American, but he's certainly somebody to love - critics are already dazzled by his performance as the Queen frontman. This likely isn't the first time you've seen him, though - Malek has held a wide range of roles in movies and TV shows over the last 14 years, including many box office and primetime hits.

Born to Egyptian immigrants, the young actor grew up in Los Angeles. He attended Notre Dame High School, where his colleagues included The O.C.'s Rachel Bilson and the original Spider-Man's Kirsten Dunst. After graduating from college in 2003, Malek's ascent in Hollywood as the leading man has been slow and steady.

Before his major roles, the actor was probably a

Minecraft movie finds a new director

Following the exit of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Rob McElhenney last August, Warner Bros. Pictures has now found a new director for its long-planned Minecraft movie in Peter Sollett (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist).

Variety reports that Sollett has signed on to write and direct the video game adaptation, which follows “a teenage girl and her unlikely group of adventurers who, after the malevolent Ender Dragon sets out on a path of destruction, must save their beautiful, blocky Overworld.”

Warner Bros. first secured the rights to the property from developer Mojang back in 2014, with both Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) and McElhenney occupying the director’s chair before exiting due to scheduling issues.

The studio has high franchise hopes for Minecraft, and with good reason seeing as the video game has become a global phenomenon, shifting over 154 million copies worldwide – second only to Tetris in

Minecraft Movie Finally Finds Replacement Director for Rob McElhenney

Minecraft Movie Finally Finds Replacement Director for Rob McElhenney
The Minecraft movie has new life as Peter Sollett has signed on to direct the video game adaptation for Warner Bros. This particular project has been gestating for some time, as the studio first gained the rights to the wildly popular video game in 2014. Since then, it's proved to be a tricky egg to crack, but now they have a new creative mind on the case that may be able to finally get this movie moving in the right direction.

According to a new report, Peter Sollett, who, on the movie front, most recently directed 2015's Freeheld, had been brought on to both write and direct Minecraft. The writing is particularly important, as it sounds as though he may be starting from scratch. At the very least, Sollett is going to be doing a fairly significant rewrite, which means we're not likely to see the movie start filming any time terribly soon.

More than two years after he was first announced as taking on the reins of the project, THR is reporting that Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) has now vacated the director’s chair on the planned big screen adaptation of Uncharted in order to focus his attention on the Ryan Reynolds-headlined Free Guy.

Levy now follows in the footsteps of David O. Russell (The Fighter), Neil Burger (Divergent) and Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), all of whom have been attached to direct at one point or another.

Uncharted Movie Loses Director Shawn Levy

The Uncharted movie has faced yet another major setback. Director Shawn Levy has officially departed the project, meaning that Sony now needs to find a new director. That's at the very least. With a new director, that could mean a new script, or at the very least a rewrite of what they already have, and multiple other delays. This is just one more step backward for a project that has been stuck firmly in the depths of the land known as development hell for some time now.

According to a new report, 20th Century Fox has given the official green light to a video game-focused movie titled Free Guy, which is set to star Ryan Reynolds in the lead. Shawn Levy has been tapped to direct and, with that, he's officially left Uncharted. He is just the latest in a long line of filmmakers who have spent time with the

James Wan Says Annabelle 3 Feels More Like A Conjuring Film Than The First Two

As James Wan’s Dceu debut Aquaman makes its way to cinemas this Friday, the Conjuring helmsman still has one foot in the cinematic universe he helped create, with the filmmaker serving as producer on the upcoming Annabelle 3.

Though the first two installments in the Conjuring spinoff trilogy journeyed progressively further back in the timeline, observing the demonic doll’s story before she came into the hands of Lorraine and Ed Warren, the recently wrapped third film sees Annabelle stir up trouble in the couple’s artifacts room, with Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson reprising their roles as the two paranormal investigators.

In this respect, it certainly sounds like the movie has more connections to the Conjuring films than the previous two Annabelle flicks did, and when Bloody Disgusting asked Wan if this was the case, the producer seemed more or less in agreement.

“I think by the very nature

Patrick Wilson Says The Conjuring 3 Will Be Different From Anything We’ve Seen Before

We’ve been hearing for a while now that The Conjuring 3 will serve as a departure from the standard haunted house formula of the first two flicks, with a report from a couple of months ago alleging that the film will instead be centered around a high-stakes legal case. And if you need further assurance that the horror threequel won’t be more of the same, star Patrick Wilson has recently doubled down on previous claims that the follow-up to 2016’s The Conjuring 2 won’t be quite like anything The Conjuring Universe has offered so far.

Speaking to Digital Spy, the star of the upcoming Aquaman first touched on his involvement in next year’s Annabelle 3, before indicating that we should expect the unexpected for his 2020 return to the series:

“We just finished Annabelle 3 which is cool. It’s nice to dip our toes into that franchise a little bit.

Who Are the Worst Reviewed Actors and Actresses of the Past 20 Years?

Who Are the Worst Reviewed Actors and Actresses of the Past 20 Years?
A new study has determined that Jessica Alba and Mike Epps are the worst reviewed actors of the last 20 years. The study was conducted by Go Compare who attempted to determine which actors and actresses in movies had the worst track records based on reviews. This was done based on looking at the average Metacritic score for all of the movies the respective stars appeared in over the last two decades. The results are, in some ways, surprising.

Starting with the actresses, Jessica Alba, who had an average Metacritic score of 39 out of 100 for her movies, came out on top. Or at the bottom, depending on how one looks at it. Alba has been in a ton of poorly reviewed movies, from her pair of Fantastic Four movies, to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and, more recently, Mechanic: Resurrection alongside Jason Statham. That really just scratches the surface,
