Karl Urban Confirmed For Judge Dredd Reboot

Karl Urban Confirmed For Judge Dredd Reboot
Karl Urban has been confirmed for the leading role in Judge Dredd by producers Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich of the new film. Urban had been rumoured for the role already, but in a Movie-Con Q&A this evening the pair confirmed that he has been cast for the film, shooting in South Africa soon.

“The main thing about Dredd is that it’s a fantastic comic that was completely messed up 20 years ago," said Macdonald. "Our idea is to make a very hard, R-rated, gritty, realistic movie of Dredd in Megacity, so we’ve got to get the tone right. He’s not going to take off his helmet. His bike is going to feel real. He’s going to hit people and it’s going to feel real."
"There’s been a change in comic-book movies; they were treated unseriously and now they’re treated seriously. We’ve cast a guy called Karl Urban to play Dredd. We’ll be shooting in Johannesburg, it’s being directed by Pete Travis, we’re shooting with the people…

"Old Spice Guy" Isaiah Mustafa Lands First Movie Role

"Old Spice Guy" Isaiah Mustafa Land First Movie Role
Isaiah Mustafa, currently better known as the Old Spice Guy because of his insanely popular adverts (see the original below), has managed to turn web popularity into film roles. He's now joined the cast of Tyler Perry's next big outing, Madea's Big Happy Family, and also landed a small part in Horrible Bosses.



To tell you the truth I have never seen or wanted to watch any of Tyler Perry's films before but with the casting of Mustafa maybe. Shit I don't think he could even make me want to watch on of Perry's films

Mustafa was already due to work with Perry in a small role in For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf, but has now switched from that slightly more indie project back to Perry's mainstream Madea franchise, and a much bigger role. He'll play a guy called Calvin, who has two tickets to that thing that you love is struggling with his marriage and family r…

Sly Talks Expendables Sequel

Sly Talks Expendables Sequel
It's not to late to start talking about making a sequel to a film even before it is released in theaters.  Sly and investors are hoping that the film will open huge (which I think it will) so that they can roll out a sequel to the movie.

If this does perform, I think it will open a little more liquidity in funding the sequel. I have an idea ready to go. People think doing a sequel is easy, but it's not because you need the element of surprise. I'm going to try to do something that's quite radical.
I am excited to see this movie that all males who grew up in the 80's always hoped for the Big three in one movie together. Then you add in Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren, Giselle Itie, Eric Roberts, David Zayas and Steve Austin. Sounds like a great combination. We'll find out at the box office if it worked and if we get a sequel.

The Tillman Story Trailer And Gets A Rated "R"

The Tillman Story Trailer And Gets A Rated "R"
The Weinstein Co announced today that the filmmakers are appealing the "R" ratings which the MPAA just gave The Tillman Story documentary about to be released in theaters August 20th. Of course, far be it from Weinsteins to miss an opportunity to generate controversy and enjoy the ensuing free publicity for their film.  But in this case director Amir Bar Lev and producer John Battsek have an excellent argument when the rating will be appealed on August 12th in Los Angeles. According to The Weinstein Co, the MPAA gave the film that "R" rating based on its “excessive language”.

“Of course there is excessive language,” states John Battsek. “This is a film that follows a truly exemplary family torn apart by the death of their loved one and the barrage of government deceit they encountered in their pursuit of the honest truth. We should be looking at this film as a way to show our younger generation the power of tr…

John Belushi To Get A Second Life

John Belushi To Get A Second Life
John Belushi may be getting a (second) second life on the big screen.

"The Pursuit of Happyness" screenwriter Steven Conrad and "The Hangover" director-producer Todd Phillips are developing a biographical film about the late comedian's life. Warner Bros. recently acquired the rights from Belushi's estate.

Conrad will script the project and Phillips will produce, though he has not yet committed to directing it. Alexandra Milchan and Bonnie Timmerman are also producing.

In a typically difficult process that saw the rights deal come together, then fall apart, then come back together again, the project would be the latest attempt at a full-scale biopic about the "Saturday Night Live" cast member and film star who died of a drug overdose in 1982 at age 33.

Belushi's life was famously detailed in Bob Woodward's 1985 biography, "Wired: The Short Life and Fast Times of John Belushi." That book is not part…

Hollywood Killing Superhero Movies? Vaughn Thinks So

Hollywood Killing Superhero Movies? Vaughn Thinks So
The clock is ticking on the superhero craze in Hollywood, according to Matthew Vaughn, the director now filming "X-Men: First Class" for Fox in London.

"It's been mined to death and in some cases the quality control is not what it's supposed to be," Vaughn said. "People are just going to get bored of it."
Vaughn, who produced, directed and co-wrote "Kick-Ass," says he pounced on the chance to make a film about the uncanny mutants from Marvel Comics because he expects the current boom in superhero cinema to fizzle out in the near future.

"I've always wanted to do a big-budget superhero film and I think we've kind of crossed the Rubicon with superhero films," Vaughn said. "I think [the opportunity to do one], it's only going to be there two or three more times."

"Then," he added, "the genre is going to be dead for a while because the audience…

New Tarzan Film To Get The 3D Treatment

New Tarzan Film To Get The 3D Treatment
Germany's Constantin Film is swinging into "Tarzan," launching development of a 3D animated feature.

Constantin acquired animation rights to the "Tarzan" novels from the estate of author Edgar Rice Burroughs. The first book in the series, "Tarzan of the Apes," was published in 1912 and spawned numerous sequels and related works. The character became strongly identified with Johnny Weismuller after he starred as Tarzan in a series of MGM features in the 1930s, helping the Ape Man become one of the world's best-known literary figures.

In "Tarzan of the Apes," Tarzan is born in the jungles of Africa to a stranded English aristocratic couple. When they are killed, the infant is adopted and raised by a clan of apes. He discovers his true origins when he comes upon the cabin of his late parents.

Kulzer is a producer on two upcoming 3D projects -- "Resident Evil: Afterlife," opening this fall, a…

"Chronicles" Of John And Max Landis

"Chronicles" Of John And Max Landis
Twentieth Century Fox is in negotiations to pick up "Chronicle," a spec script from the son of director John Landis, Max Landis, while first-time director Josh Trank is attached to helm the super-power project.

According to the studio, the story focuses on the lives of three Portland teens that become exposed to a mysterious substance in the woods, and, as a result, begin to develop incredible powers. They work together to hone their skills for fun, until personal and family problems begin to turn them against one another.

"Chronicle" is being eyed to be told in hand-held, documentary-style that has been slowly gaining popularity with movies such as "Cloverfield" and "Paranormal Activity."

 While he directed a web series titled "Killpoint" in 2007 and was the editor on "Big Fan," Robert Siegel's indie starring Patton Oswalt, Trank may have that style of filmmaking in his genes;…

Quantum Leap Into Film By: Jonathan Cyfer

Quantum Leap Into Film By: Jonathan Cyfer
I learned this morning that the television showQuantum Leap (1989-1993) is going to be made into a film. I have mixed feelings about this. I'm a fan of the original show, primarily because of the "buddy chemistry" between the show's two stars, Scott Bakula (as Dr. Sam Beckett) and Dean Stockwell (as Al Calavicci). Of course, I'm also a sucker for a good time travel story and Donald Bellisario's creation managed to hold its quality for the four years the show was on the air.

On the other hand, I don't think that every single television show ever made must be made into a film, either because film producers think it would be a good way to make money or because they lack any sort of creative vision and thus have to recycle the ideas of others. My first inclination is to say, if Quantum Leap needs to be remade, remake it as a TV show.

However, since nobody listens to me anyway, I might as well accept Quantum Leap as a f…

Scott Bakula: Quantum Leap Film On It's Way

Scott Bakula: Quantum Leap Film On It's Way
Not sure how we missed this news coming out of Comic-Con until now, but for Quantum Leap fans, it might have been the BIGGEST news to come out of Comic-Con. Quantum Leap will be back. And it will be back on the big screen.

At the "A Leap of Faith—A Quantum Leap Retrospective" panel, Scott Bakula shared the big news with the 600 fans who attended:

The good news is that Don [Quantum Leap creator Donald P. Bellisario] is working on the film script and has a big time Hollywood producer who wants to do it ... It's about time. But what I always thought would happen, happened ... [that he's now too old for the role]. But Dean [Stockwell, who played Al] and I will have a part in it somehow.

Don did say that as he was writing, he told me he was having trouble, 'getting you and Dean out of my head.' But I know he will do it.

The Other Guys Takes Down Inception

The Other Guys Takes Down Inception
The US box office charts this weekend were taken over by a pair of bumbling, enthusiastic cops as Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg and director Adam McKay drove The Other Guys to the top spot and knocked the brain-itching former champ Inception down to second place. Ferrell in particular will be happy with the result, as it’s his most successful film for a while, notching up $35.6 million in its first three days.

Chris Nolan won’t be too broken-hearted, though – Inception still managed to do decent business, raking in $18.6 million and placing well ahead of the week’s other wide new entry, Step Up 3D. The third dimension didn’t seem to boost to dance pic, which opened with $15.5 million. The remainder of the top five was made up of Salt, with $11.1 million, and Dinner for Schmucks, which dropped from second place with $10.5 million.

Thanks to Schmucks, the middle of the charts is a Steve Carell-fest, with Despicable Me still showing strong legs, earning …
