Cher Joins Mamma Mia Sequel

Saoirse Ronan And Gemma Arterton Become Vampires In "Byzantium"

Oscar winning filmmaker Neil Jordan is reuniting with producer Stephen Woolley to make Byzantium, a female vampire movie with Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton as the lead bloodsuckers.

The original script is penned by Moira Buffini and details the story of a mother vampire who turns her own daughter into a vampire and the pair form a lethal partnership, sometimes posing as sisters.

The £8 million ($11 million) budgeted movie is set to shoot in October.

Jordan and Woolley have made several movies dating back to 1984’s The Company of Wolves, based on Angela Carter’s novel.

Woolley produced Jordan’s Oscar winning The Crying Game also and last worked together on Breakfast on Pluto in 2005.

“I love the horror genre and we’ve been working on this for three or four years. I sent it to Neil and he liked the script,” Woolley said. “We’d both recently revisited Angela Carter’s book and it was just chance that when I called [Jordan], we were thinking along the same lines.”

The original script i…

Alex Pettyfer Joins Magic Mike

This is going to gobsmack almost everyone in Hollywood. Not only did Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh just choose 21-year-old newcomer Alex Pettyfer for this juicy role in Magic Mike. But also, the film has such an interesting storyline because the plot revolves around Channing Tatum's real-life stripper sojourn. Now Pettyfer will play a young Tatum baring it all while Channing plays his older mentor. Pettyfer recently starred in I Am Number Four and Beastly, and will appear this fall opposite Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried for New Regency in a film that was called Now, and just changed its name today to In Time.

Soderbergh's Magic Mike is the story of a friendship set in the world of male strippers. Tatum plays the title character, who schools a young dancer (Pettyfer) in how to hustle on and off the stage. It's a wild summer of dancing, partying, and women. The inspiration was Channing's own experiences as a stripper when he was 19. With Tatum, Nick We…

McConaughey, Maguire,Vergara & Efron Join The Paperboy

Matthew McConaughey, Tobey Maguire, Sofia Vergara and Zac Efron will star in an adaptation of the 1995 Pete Dexter novel The Paperboy for Millennium Films.


Lee Daniels is set to direct the sexual thriller, which follows a Miami Times reporter as he returns to his Florida hometown to investigate the imprisonment of a death row inmate. Pedro Almodovar developed a feature project with Dexter for more than a decade before Daniels became involved early this year.

Hilary Shor is producing with Daniels. Avi Lerner, Trevor Short and Danny Dimbort are executive producers.
“This is a good film for us,” said Lerner, “a project that has Pedro Almodovar attached, is set in the steamy South, directed by Lee Daniels, Hilary Shor producing, and with the incredible cast of Matthew, Tobey, Sofia and Zac.”

Bridesmaids Movie Review By: SandwichJohn

Bridesmaids Movie Review By: SandwichJohn
Gotta start with this first, the title is misleading. When most guys read the title they think chick flick. Fellas you are truly mistaken. This movie is indeed made for men and women to enjoy and laugh their ass off. So if you want to earn some points with the lady then offer to take her to see the movie, and I all most guarantee you'll like it more then her.

Bridesmaids was produced by Judd Apatow (40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up) and should be the first reason you go see it. The second are break out stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy (Samantha Who?,Mike & Molly) and Chris O'Dowd this for sure was his break out role. You may not know his name now but after this film you surely will.

Kristen Wiig plays Annie, best friend for life with Maya Rudolph (Lillian). Lillian decides to get married and of course her best friend is asked to be her maid of honor. This is where the trouble begins. Annie is introduced to the rest of the bridesmaid…

Sasha Grey To "Skinny Dip" In Her Next Film

Pam Grier, Michael Madsen and Brigitte Nielsen have joined the comic exploitation flick Skinny Dip for production outfit The Zoo.

Sasha Grey and Danny Trejo are already aboard to star in the story of a girl who takes an innocent dare, ends up terribly victimized and then seeks shotgun-wielding revenge while wearing a stolen police uniform (tagline: “They took her bikini. They took her virginity. She took her revenge.”).

“I grew up on and have always loved the films of the 70’s and 80’s featuring such on-screen idols as Pam Grier, Laura Gemser and Grace Jones,” said Latina. “They contain, in my opinion, some the most powerful female performances in cinema history. Skinny Dip will draw from a new, equally powerful and provocative actress in Sasha Grey. Combining the wild, exploitative sensibility of grindhouse films with strong female characters drawn from the present – these are the kinds of films I make and want to see.”

Jack Turner and Nicholas Shumaker of the Zoo have partnered with …

Wonder Woman TV Show Not Given A Chance

This spring, no pilot was more buzzy, controversial, or intensely scrutinized than "Wonder Woman." But evidently, buzz is not enough to overcome the stink of a misbegotten failure: This week, NBC declined to pick up the show.

The news comes as the networks prepare for their upfront presentations (where they unveil their fall schedules for advertisers). "Wonder Woman" would have seemed to be a sure thing: It was produced by David E. Kelley, whose TV successes with the network date back to "L.A. Law," and starred geek-bait stars like Cary "The Princess Bride" Elwes and Elizabeth "Austin Powers" Hurley. But reports of its abysmal script (which was later rewritten, to slightly more positive effect) seem to have been borne out in a pilot episode NBC could not approve. The ongoing agita over the design of the title character's costume — which producers attempted to quell by announcing Wonder Woman would actually alternate three different…

X-Men First Class Magic Trick

Here is another T.V. clip for the upcoming film X-Men First Class called "Magic Trick" In the clip we get to meet Agent Stryker, is this the father of William "Bill" Stryker from the previous X-Men films?


Watch the clip after the Jump...



SYNOPSIS:

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.

The film stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. Ma…

NBC's Chuck Return's For A 5th Season

Perennial bubble show Chuck has apparently avoided cancellation once again. While NBC sources are not confirming that the spy-fi series will get a fifth season, several sources are reporting that a deal is being hammered out with Warner Bros. and is imminent.

Though the ratings have been at their lowest this spring, Warner Bros. would love to make a deal, because five seasons of Chuck means syndication. As for NBC, well, scripted drama has not been the network's friend. That said, don't be surprised if we get a shorter 13-episode final season.

So, while it looks like fans won't have to eat mountains of Subway sandwiches to save Chuck as they did to insure a third season of the show, there are no such hopeful murmurings for The Event, which has even lower ratings. The alien conspiracy series is not likely to be renewed.

Human Nature For George Clooney & Darren Aronofsky

Two months after Darren Aronofsky announced that he wouldn’t be making The Wolverine, Vulture has learned that the Black Swan director has set his sights on a new film: a fifteen-year-old original sci-fi spec script called Human Nature by a little-known screenwriter named Jeff Welch.

George Clooney is attaching himself to star as a man who is cryogenically frozen and wakes up years later to a world in which humans have become pets of another species.

Insiders tell us that Warner Bros.–based producer Akiva Goldsman (I Am Legend) is currently budgeting the movie, but if things go to plan, this would likely be Aronofsky’s next project.

Dr. Hector Hammond Character Poster From Green Lantern

Via Facebook, we get a character poster of Peter Sarsgaard as Dr. Hector Hammond. If you have no idea who Dr. Hector Hammond, here is alittle back ground on him.

A scientist who discovers the fragments of a strange meteor that causes his brain to grow to enormous size, granting him psionic powers. Regarding his preparation for the role, Sarsgaard stated, "I actually did hang with this biologist from Tulane that was I think just the most eccentric guy they could find. He was entertaining, and he and I actually worked on my lecture that I give in [Green Lantern], which I kept royally fucking up. About his character Sarsgaard remarked, "He's got shades of gray. It's eccentricity on top of eccentricity".

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring th…

Rachel Weisz Could Join Jeremy Renner In The Bourne Legacy

Deadline is reporting that Rachel Weisz is in even deeper talks to star opposite Jeremy Renner in Universal Pictures' latest in the Bourne franchise.  She may not be able to: the Tony Gilroy-directed The Bourne Legacy starts shooting in September, and Oz is planned to go into production this summer.

In the Bourne spinoff, two-time Oscar nominee Renner (The Hurt Locker, The Town) will play a new character: an operative from a covert government program that is even more dangerous than the Treadstone brainwashing program that hatched Bourne.

Renner is not a kid, and Weisz would be a compatible co-star. In Oz, she would join James Franco and Mila Kunis and play Evanora, the meaner older witch sister of Theodora (Kunis).

Battle For "The Terminator" Rights Have Begun

A high-stakes battle is being waged for the right to relaunch The Terminator, with Fast Five helmer Justin Lin attached to direct and Arnold Schwarzenegger attached to reprise his signature role in one of filmdom’s most iconic franchises. Yesterday, it looked like Lionsgate would win the property with an outright purchase, with an upfront payment of at least half of the $29.5 million that Pacificor spent to claim the property in a bankruptcy auction. That was until Megan Ellison and her Annapurna Films came in with a bid that was higher. They are now fighting it out. As she usually does when she commits to a film, Ellison is staking that amount without having a distributor locked in place.

We wrote about how Justin Lin was attached to the film last month, and this was the first real activity on The Terminator project since February 2010, when the property emerged from a bankruptcy auction and into the possession of Pacificor. While there were several dealmaking scenarios offered, inclu…

Hilary Swank Joins The Dallas Buyer’s Club

Hilary Swank has joined Matthew McConaughey to star in The Dallas Buyer’s Club, signing on to star in the real-life drama from Canadian director Jean-Marc Vallee (The Young Victoria).

The film centers on Ron Woodroof, a Texas electrician diagnosed with AIDS who began smuggling alternative drugs into the U.S. to help himself and other AIDS patients. His actions put him on a collision course with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which was bent on keeping the drugs out of the country. Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack adapted Woodroof’s story for the screen.

Robbie Brenner (Machine Gun Preacher) is producing with Rachel Rothman-Winter.

House Renewed For An 8th Season

Dr. House will be on call for another season. Fox on Tuesday announced an eighth season pickup for the Hugh Laurie medical drama, confirming widespread speculation.

“Over the past seven seasons, House has redefined the medical drama and has given us one of television’s most compelling and iconic characters,” said Fox entertainment chief Kevin Reilly. “From the producers to the incredible writers to the unbelievably talented cast and crew, the House team is fearless in its creativity and I can’t wait to see what they have in store next year.”

The announcement follows protracted negotiations between the show’s studio Universal Media Studios and network Fox over the show’s license fee, which spilled out into the press. At issue: who will pay what percentage for an eighth season.
