'Ring' Prequel 'Rings' Casts Alex Roe as the Male Lead

'Ring' Prequel 'Rings' Casts Alex Roe as the Male Lead
British actor Alex Roe has signed on to play the male lead in Paramount's Rings, which we reported last week will be a prequel to the studio's 2002 thriller The Ring. While that report has yet to be confirmed, it claimed that this new story will be set several years before The Ring, focusing on the origin of Samara's reign of terror and how the mysterious video tape was created. In The Ring, anyone who watches this VHS tape dies seven days later.

We reported in January that Matilda Lutz has signed on as the lead character, but no details about her role were given. Deadline reports that Alex Roe is playing Holt, the boyfriend of Matilda Lutz's character who suddenly becomes distant after he watches the aforementioned tape. Since the earlier report reveals the story will examine how the tape is created, these new details could either mean that the previous report was inaccurate,

'The Ring' Reboot Casts Matilda Lutz in the Lead

'The Ring' Reboot Casts Matilda Lutz in the Lead
Paramount Pictures has cast little-known Italian actress Matilda Lutz as the female lead for Rings, a follow-up to 2002's The Ring and 2005's The Ring Two which was formerly known as The Ring 3D. While it hasn't been confirmed, this project is expected to continue the continuity from the first two thrillers, although it will feature a brand new cast. Naomi Watts, who starred in both The Ring and The Ring Two, will not be returning for the sequel.

No details were given for Matilda Lutz's character, but the story is said to feature the tormented Samara and a deadly videotape, although no specific story details were released. We reported in July that F. Javier Guti&#233rrez (Before the Fall, The Crow) signed on to direct, with screenwriter Akiva Goldsman coming aboard in August to rewrite the script, which was originally written by David Loucka (House at the End of the Street,

Labor Day review: Stockholm-syndrome romance

A gooey nostalgic look back at that time a young boy’s mom fell in love with their kidnapper, presented under a sexy sweltering summer haze. I’m “biast” (pro): love Reitman, Brolin, and Winslet

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Ladies! Single? Lonely? Starved for human touch? Why not get yourself kidnapped and held hostage by an escaped convict? Guaranteed relationship starter!

I kinda couldn’t believe this is where Labor Day goes. I’m kinda dumbfounded it does so without the teensiest sense of irony or even a hint of awareness that this could be problematic. Stockholm syndrome as actually, genuinely, for-reals romantic? Are they kidding us?

They are not kidding us.

I… I can’t even.

It’s Labor Day weekend in 1987, and single mom — and very likely clinically depressed

Gabourey Sidibe: I'm Having A Crazy Little Career

Gabourey Sidibe: I'm Having A Crazy Little Career
"I could have easily never worked again after Precious," Gabourey Sidibe tells me over breakfast in Los Angeles. "I could be back at my receptionist job and no one would be surprised, but I'm having a very crazy little career that no one thought would happen. Although that was never the plan. "

It's not clear whose plan Sidibe is referring to (hers, God's, Hollywood's), but it's plain to see nothing in the NY native's career has happened by accident. Although, as she's the first to admit, no one on her team is working off a calculated, step-by-step, career plan. Thankfully the fates led her from Precious to The Big C, which ends its phenomenal four-year run with hereafter, a 4-part limited run series, featuring Sidibe as Andrea, the wayward high schooler Laura Linney's character took under her wing back in season one.

How 'The Big C' Shaped Its Final Act

How 'The Big C' Shaped Its Final Act
Cathy Jamison's battle with cancer has been, at turns, heart-breaking, hilarious and hard to watch. But perhaps the toughest moment came in last night's The Big C: hereafter season premiere when Cathy asked her family, and fans, to accept her decision to stop chemotherapy.

Buckets of tears would have rained regardless, but the scene in question packed an even more powerful emotional wallop given it was set at the storage locker Cathy purchased and filled with a lifetime of birthday presents for her son, Adam, in season one.

"That was a really emotional scene to film," actor Gabriel Basso, who plays Adam, told ETonline. "It was my first day back filming on season four, and it was the same storage locker from season one, so there was this cool sense of the beginning and the end at the same time."

An executive producer of Showtime’s upcoming drama “Ray Donovan” is denying wrongdoing after he was named by the FBI among the dozens of individuals allegedly involved in illegal gambling that resulted in dozens of arrests on Tuesday, in what federal authorities say is linked to an extensive money laundering operation run by two Russian-American organized crime organizations.

Yes, There Are At Least 38 Sundance Movies That You Will (Probably) Get to See

The Sundance Film Festival may be over, but that doesn’t mean that the year’s first major film fest doesn’t live on in our hearts – or our theaters and VOD apparatus. Like any good film festival, Sundance is not just a fun movie-watching playtime, it’s also a market for new films looking for a distribution home, even films that come complete with big stars (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ashton Kutcher, Paul Rudd, the list goes on and on). But just because a film gets picked up at Sundance — and by a major company, to boot — doesn’t mean that it will get a big, fancy theatrical release in a timely fashion (see the Tobey Maguire- and Elizabeth Banks-starring The Details for proof of that), though it’s a damn good start. So, just which of the many films that bowed at the ‘dance will you be able to see at a theater (or couch

Who Got Naked in Movies This Year?

Ahh, the year in skin.

It's not the golden "Deep Throat" years of the '70s anymore, it's the age of the Internet and no one really goes to the movies to see nudity, but women proved they were hungry for some beefcake with the wild success of "Magic Mike." Meanwhile, A-list actresses bared it all for some compelling reasons that were absolutely integral to the script… hehe.

Here's our comprehensive list of major celebs who got in the buff so perverts could post screengrabs on Internet forums.


Kristen Stewart, 'On the Road'

She may be a trampire in real-life, but Stewart's also got a polyamorous streak in the movie version of Jack Kerouac's "On the Road," a.k.a. "This Seemed Cooler When I Was in High School English Class." As free spirit Marylou, Stewart gets to have a go with both Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund

Dennis Haysbert Will Replace Late Actor Michael Clarke Duncan as Manute in 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For'

One of the notable losses in entertainment this past year, actor Michael Clarke Duncan cut short with his passing a number of films ready to bring him on board, and a central example of such was Robert Rodriguez's “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.” A notoriously quick filmmaker in all respects, Rodriguez has hit a number of delays in pushing the production forward that only increased with Duncan's death, but luckily another actor has stepped into the late actor's role to keep the film on track. Along with Jamie Chung, who will replace Devon Aoki in her assassin role of Miho for the film, actor Dennis Haysbert has been tapped to take over Duncan's returning villain role of Manute in Rodriguez's graphic novel adaptation. Of course prominent for his years on “24” as the President, Haysbert last lent his talents to both “Wreck-It Ralph” and dark indie comedy “The Details,

Dennis Haysbert Replaces Michael Clarke Duncan in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Dennis Haysbert Replaces Michael Clarke Duncan in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
Several stars of 2005's Sin City are set to reprise their roles in director Robert Rodriguez's sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. One of those cast members was Michael Clarke Duncan, who was set to return as Manute before tragically passing away in September at the age of 54. Today, we have news that Dennis Haysbert is in talks to step in as Manute. Here's what director Robert Rodriguez had to say about the new addition to his cast.

"Manute is a character that has been part of the heart of the Sin City tales, and the late Michael Clarke Duncan beautifully established that role onscreen. We could not tell the story of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For without Manute and are thrilled to welcome Dennis Haysbert to the cast."

In the original Sin City, Manute kidnaps Gail (Rosario Dawson), prompting Dwight (Clive Owen) to trade

Killing Them Softly (review)

You think it’s gonna be just another hitman action movie: Look, it’s Brad Pitt with slicked-back hair and an evil goatee and a shotgun! And it’s called Killing Them Softly, fer pete’s sake, so maybe Brad’s gonna be some sort of philosophical hitman or something, but that’s as far as it’ll go, right? But then you learn it’s from writer-director Andrew Dominik, the guy who made The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, which also sounded like it was gonna be kickass and bloody but instead turned out to be a cool, dreamy meditation on celebrity. Dominik pulls that trick again, turns a very American mythology of crime and violence in on itself and from that inversion yanks out a mirror with which to show us a startling reflection of America. The image shining darkly from Killing Them Softly is not very flattering,

Laura Linney Talks The Details, Hyde Park On Hudson, and More

The film The Details, directed by Jacob Aaron Estes, stars Tobey Maguire and Elizabeth Banks as the familiar unhappy suburban couple with a raccoon problem. When Maguire has a need to win over his "wack-a-doodle" neighbor Lila (Laura Linney) his life is thrown upside down in an unpredictable and almost incomprehensible way. The journey of the characters in the film meanders through a series of connected but random events that question the values of truth and integrity and examines to what lengths good people will go to protect the ones they love. The film also features Ray Liotta, Kerry Washington and Dennis Haysbert.  At the New York press day, I was able to speak with one of it's stars, Laura Linney, and get her personal insight into the dark comedy.
