Guy Pearce Joins Iron Man 3

Guy Pearce is all over our screens this weekend, starring as wisecracking bruiser Snow in Lockout, and all over this site, too as you can hear him chat about it on the latest Empire Podcast. So it only seems fitting that he’s now lining up a big, exciting new job, Pearce will appear in Iron Man 3.

Before we proceed with any further info, be warned that even knowing who Pearce will be playing could be considered a spoiler, so those who might cry foul should skip away.

Right then… As has been previously talked about, the plot of Shane Black’s take on Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark will draw from Warren Ellis' Iron Man: Extremis six-issue run on the comics. It's not all that surprising, since Ellis’ work has been running through the cinematic incarnation of Stark since the first movie.

The third film will see Stark dabbling with nanotechnology, which is created by geneticist Aldrich Killian. When it gets into the hands of terrorists (including, presumably, the recently-cast Sir Ben Kingsley) and a new threat is developed, Tony decides to try his own take on it.

Don Cheadle and Gwyneth Paltrow are slated to be back, and Black, who co-wrote the script with Drew Pearce, will kick off shooting in North Carolina next month. The film is set for release on May 3, 2013.

Pearce (Guy, that is, not Drew) is next slated to appear in Prometheus. So at least he’ll know what he’s getting into in terms of having to stay quiet about plot points…

Lobo Film To Be Directed By Journey 2's Brad Peyton

Brad Peyton, who helmed the global hit Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, has just been set by Warner Bros to rewrite and direct Lobo, the live-action film based on the DC Comics franchise. Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman are producing.

Lobo is an alien that works as an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter. Introduced as a hardened, rarely used hard-boiled villain in the 1980s, the character remained in limbo until his revival as an anti-hero biker in the early 1990s, when he became on of the most popular characters in the DC Comics stable.

Get To Know Real Nick Fury Before The Avengers Hits Theaters

Today onepercase introduces us to the Man who is in Charge. Director of S. H. I. E. L. D., Nick Fury.


Not much is known about Nick Fury before World War II other than he was born some time in the early 1900's. Fury fought in World War II for the United States and served with Private Fisk and James Howlett (Kingpin's grandfather and Wolverine, respectively). While looting a house. all three are arrested with Fisk only receiving a minor wound, but Fury and Howlett are both imprisoned and shipped to unknown locations.


At Fury's secret location, he was chosen to be the next test subject of Project Rebirth (which is the Super Soldier program that produced the likes of Captain America). After being injected with the serum, he used his new found super strength to free the other prisoners and then escape from the facility.


Fury went to college in India and then enlisted in the US Military. He was involved in many different conflicts such as the Kosovo Wars and the Gulf War. During the Gulf War, he was charged with transporting Wolverine. An Iraqi ambush killed Fury's team, freed Wolverine and injured Fury pretty badly. This ambush is what caused Fury to lose his left eye.


Even though Wolverine actually saved Fury, Wolverine was re-imprisoned. In spite of this, the two became good friends. This friendship would benefit the X-Men many years later when they were all captured during the Weapon X program. Wolverine, being the only free one contacted Fury, who helped them escape. Following this ordeal, General Ross was presumed to be dead and Nick Fury rose to the rank of Director of S. H. I. E. L. D. One of his first acts as director is to reinstate the Super Soldier program and form a group of super-humans as planetary defenders that was to be dubbed the Ultimates.



The main stream Nick Fury is a white guy. Fury is one of three children who grew up in Hell's Kitchen. After World War II, Fury is injured by a landmine. He is healed and used as a test subject for the Infinity Formula. After spending sometime with the CIA, Nick Fury is recruited by Tony Stark as the second in command of S. H. I. E. L. D.

Because of the serum he was injected with, he has super human strength and has reduced aging. He also heals incredibly quickly. Fury is an incredible combatant and leader. While he does use some technologies far ahead of the rest of the world, Fury tends to use normal firearms.


Fun trivia about Nick Fury, the Ultimates version is very obviously based off of Samuel L. Jackson (with his permission). Jackson gave his permission after reading a scene between the Ultimates about who would play them in a movie and Fury said, "Why, Mister Samuel L. Jackson, of course. That's not even open to debate, Doctor Pym."

Next time, Bruce Banner and his big, mean, green alter ego will be looked at.

Mark Wahlberg Is The Avon Man

Mark Wahlberg is in talks to come aboard Avon Man,the 20th Century Fox comedy that once had Hugh Jackman ready to star and Kevin Lima to direct. I’m told that Wahlberg and partner Stephen Levinson will board the projects as producers alongside Krasnoff Foster’s Gary Foster and John Palermo, and it will be developed as a potential star vehicle for Wahlberg. Lima is no longer involved.

Michael McCullers will come aboard and write a new draft of a script originated by Kevin Bisch. Jackman stepped out because he expected to do The Wolverine and had a schedule clash before that project was pushed back. In the film, a group of guys are laid off from an auto dealership, and one reluctantly becomes an Avon salesman. He survives the emasculation, relies on his charm and becomes a top seller. He then tries to save his town and help his struggling family by pulling in his macho unemployed pals to hawk beauty products so they can win a regional contest.

Wahlberg has been mixing dramas and comedies and will soon be seen starring in the Seth MacFarlane-directed Ted. He wrapped the drama Broken City opposite Russell Crowe and is now starring with Dwayne Johnson in the Michael Bay-directed Pain and Gain. He then stars with Denzel Washington in 2 Guns and the Peter Berg-directed Lone Survivor, both of which are being made by Emmatt/Furla and Universal.

We Have Your Access To See THE RAVEN In Sacramento

In Theaters April 27, 2012


We have your access to see THE RAVEN. Rogue has provide me with Exclusive passes for the fans to get access to the screening in Sacramento,Ca.


Please Bring your ID's to the screening


THE RAVEN is an American thriller film directed by James McTeigue, produced by Scott Levy, and based on a screenplay by Ben Livingston and Hannah Shakespeare. It stars John Cusack, Alice Eve, Luke Evans and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.


It is a fictionalized account of the last days of Edgar Allan Poe's life, in which the poet and author pursues a serial killer whose murders mirror those in Poe's stories.


Don't forget to vote for SandwichJohnFilms on the KCRA A List-


When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields (Luke Evans) makes a startling discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory detail in the local newspaper--part of a collection of stories penned by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack). But even as Poe is questioned by police, another grisly murder occurs, also inspired by a popular Poe story. Realizing a serial killer is on the loose using Poe's writings as the backdrop for his bloody rampage, Fields enlists the author's help in stopping the attacks. But when it appears someone close to Poe may become the murderer's next victim, the stakes become even higher and the inventor of modern detective story calls on his own powers of deduction to try to solve the case before it's too late.

Francis Lawrence Is "Catching Fire"

After a quick but fairly exhaustive search, Lionsgate has chosen Francis Lawrence to direct the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire.

Sources say Lawrence will receive an official offer Thursday afternoon. If he accepts and a deal can be worked out, he will replace Gary Ross, who directed the hugely successful first installment of the franchise.
The hunt has been fast and furious, with the field narrowing down to Lawrence, director of I Am Legend and Water for Elephants, and Bennett Miller, who helmed the Oscar-nominated Brad Pitt baseball movie Moneyball. Both directors met with the studio Thursday, according to sources, and Lionsgate executives have made their pick.

Lawrence was deemed the front-runner by observers simply because of his open schedule. Miller is working his way to a December start for Foxcatcher, a true-life project centering on John Du Pont that has been his focus for several years. Miller has even lined up Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo for the drama, and delaying it would have been a Herculean task.

Other directors on the shortlist of Catching Fire contenders were Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy), Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu (Babel), Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre) and Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code).

Lawrence’s selection raises the question of the state of the Catching Fire screenplay. Ross, who is a writer as much as he is a director, worked on the Hunger Games script and was planning on spending two months honing Fire, working from a script penned by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire). The producers and the new director now will need to keep working with Beaufoy or hire new scribes to hammer out the script before shooting begins.

The moviemakers are facing a ticking clock, especially since Lionsgate has set a Nov. 22, 2013, release date for Catching Fire, the second of four planned movies based on Suzanne Collins' trilogy of books. Also coming into play is that shooing for Fire likely needs to be done by early January so that star Jennifer Lawrence, who is not related to the Austria-born director, can begin shooting the sequel to X-Men: First Class in late January. Fox, which is making that movie, has an option on the actress that supersedes her Lionsgate commitment.

Lincoln: Vampire Hunter New Poster

Here is the new poster for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter via Empire  puts old Abe (Benjamin Walker) front and centre in the movie's not-entirely-historical world. On a train, to be precise. A flaming death train. Well, this is a Timur Bekmambetov movie. It was never going to be the 16.47 to Wanstead.

Adapted from Seth Grahame-Smith vampire genre mash, Vampire Hunter sticks an axe into Abraham Lincoln's hand and no doubt sneaks a trick or two under that stovepipe hat, as the Prez tackles the massed ranks of the undead.



The vampire cohorts are led by the exceptionally nasty Adam (Rufus Sewell), while saddling up on Team Abe are wife Mary Todd Lincoln (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and his vampire-smiting guru Henry Sturges (Dominic Cooper). To recap: that's Howard Stark and Ramona Flowers versus the massed ranks of the undead. And AlanTudyk's in the mix as Stephen A. Douglas. Fight!

If you wonder what the 19th century would have looked like if, instead of penning Emancipation Proclamations and Gettysburg Addresses, Lincoln had spent his time killing the heck out of vampires, it's well worth a few moments of your time.

Sam Jackson Talks About A S.H.I.E.L.D. Film

Fourteen days, "Avengers" fans! You know, not that we're counting or anything. Oh, who are we kidding? Of course, we're counting down! To help as you drudge through the long days that lie ahead before the midnight release, we have another "Avengers" interview for you: Nick Fury himself, Samuel L. Jackson!

When MTV News caught up with the actor, our correspondent mentioned to Jackson that there are a lot of people who would love to see just him in a S.H.I.E.L.D. film.

"Really?" he questioned. "Just handling it?"
The actor was surprised because he knows there are key characters necessary for any S.H.I.E.L.D. movie. "Natasha is part of S.H.I.E.L.D., Hawkeye is part of S.H.I.E.L.D., and I couldn't do a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie without those two people. They're essential elements of what's there," Jackson said.

Watch the clip after the Jump...



He doesn't just mean the Earth's mightiest heroes either. "Now we know Agent [Maria] Hill is an essential element of S.H.I.E.L.D. so she would have to be there. And I'm still not sure if she's the eyes and ears of the council hanging around inside their place and telling people, 'We've got these superheroes over here!' She wants my job," the actor jokes. "I can tell. She's ambitious."

And what about more S.H.I.E.L.D. scenes in the upcoming sequels "Captain America 2," "Thor 2," and "Iron Man 3"? We're sure the Earth will need the law enforcement team in those flicks.

"I don't know how much of S.H.I.E.L.D. [Marvel] want[s] to expose...I mean, we're not superheroes. We're more of a shadow world. So, it would be more like 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' with good toys—closer to a 'Bond' movie than a superhero movie."

The Wolverine To Be Shot In Australia

LOOK out Sydney - Hugh Jackman is coming to town and he's bringing his razor-sharp claws with him when he films The Wolverine in his home city.

In a deal estimated to be worth $80 million to the New South Wales economy, the blockbuster is the latest big budget movie to be made in the state following recent hits such as The Great Gatsby, Lego, Walking With Dinosaurs and Happy Feet 2.

Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner, who helped secure the deal with 20th Century Fox when he flew to Los Angeles in January, said winning the film would generate more than 2000 jobs for Sydney.

"The Wolverine is expected to generate more than $80 million in production expenditure in NSW and create more than 720 jobs for NSW-based cast and crew, along with opportunities for 1200 extras," he said.
"It is a testament to our screen industry that Hugh Jackman and his team have chosen to come back to Australia after such a positive experience making the X-Men Origins."

The Federal Government has contributed $12.8 million to securing the film for Sydney, a bid that beat off Victoria as a possible location.

Although some production work is scheduled for the US, another $10 million worth of post-production work will be done here, especially visual effects. Both state and federal government incentives were provided to bring the film to Sydney.

The film follows the X Men Origins: Wolverine filming here bringing 1000 jobs to Australia.
That film was seen by millions of moviegoers worldwide and brought great exposure to Australia's screen production sector.
