Colin Farrell Has A Winter’s Tale

As he puts the pieces together to make passion project Winter’s Tale in October, writer-turned-director Akiva Goldsman has been on the hunt for cast members to join Jessica Brown Findlay, who signed on last month. He’s now offered the main role to Colin Farrell.

Goldsman is keen to snag Farrell’s services and backing studio Warner Bros. is also eager to stay in business with the Horrible Bosses co-star. He’s already been offered the lead in Arthur And Lancelot, but that didn’t work out.

So now the executives and Goldsman are crossing their fingers he starts negotiations to take on Tale, which has been adapted from Mark Helprin’s novel rather than Shakespeare's play. A sprawling narrative that flits between the modern-day and 19th century New York, the story follows a thief breaking into a swanky West Side mansion, and meeting the dying young woman who lives there. But that’s not the end of it, as there are mob bosses, demons and other supernatural elements to contend with.

Josh Gad To Play Steve Wozniak

There was consternation and cries of “it must be an April Fool’s joke!” when Ashton Kutcher was announced as the actor to play the late Apple overlord Steve jobs in Joshua Michael Stern’s Jobs. We’re guessing there’ll be much less outcry greeting the news that Josh Gad is in talks to play another key figure in the early days of the company, co-founder Steve Wozniak.

Woz, as he’s long since become known, first became friends with Jobs when they worked together at Hewlett Packard in 1970. Jobs wanted to forge ahead with his idea to sell a computer as a fully assembled kit, which Wozniak wasn’t sure would work. But after Jobs convinced him, he threw in his lot and the pair began to work on their prototypes for what eventually became the Apple I. On April 1, 1976, the pair founded Apple Computers together and began a 12-year business partnership, which was temporarily imperilled when Woz was injured in a small plane crash.

Though he’s since said that he and Jobs were not close friends, the…

The film, which started shooting on April 13th on location in Braddock, Pennsylvania, is written and directed by critically-acclaimed Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart).

The film is a gripping and gritty dramatic thriller about fate, circumstance, and justice. Russell (Bale) and his younger brother Rodney (Affleck) live in the economically-depressed Rust Belt, and have always dreamed of esc…

Safe Movie Review By: RAMA

Safe Movie Review By: RAMA
What did RAMA think of the movie?


Usually with Jason Statham movies, you can use one review for all of them, ’cause you pretty much get the same deal. Only Jason Statham could make one man vs. 20 people look ridiculous and exciting at the same time. But let’s face it, those of us who grew up watching Sly, Arnold, and Bruce kickin’ ass left and right, kinda miss those good ol days, but thankfully Statham stepped up and answered the call. SAFE, which hits theaters this weekend, is a flawed but a high adrenaline rush that will entertain action fans everywhere…

Wanting to make an example of him, the Russian Mafia murders his family and banishes him from his life forever, leaving Luke to wander the streets of New York destitute, haunted by guilt, and tormented by the knowledge that he will always …

Julianne Moore Offered Role In Carrie

It isn’t a big surprise, but MGM has formally offered Julianne Moore the nightmarish religious fanatic mother in the Kimberly Peirce-directed remake of the 1976 film Carrie. Chloe Moretz is already set to play the title character, a young woman whose devastating telepathic powers rear up when she reaches puberty. Kevin Misher is producing.

Moore’s name has been in the mix for a while, but at the time MGM maintained it was talking to numerous actresses. Now, they’ve sent Moore the script and a pay or play offer to play Margaret White, the role that Piper Laurie rode to an Oscar nomination. (Moore just got done playing Sarah Palin in the Jay Roach-directed HBO film Game Change, but Margaret White makes the former vice presidential candidate seem like a raging liberal.) The film is based on the 1974 Stephen King novel that was first filmed by director Brian De Palma. Sissy Spacek played Carrie White, and both she and Laurie got Oscar noms.

The Raven Movie Review By: Matt C

The Raven Movie Review By: Matt C
At first glance, the premise for The Raven might seem like an odd Hollywood match: comedy actor John Cusack (Better Off Dead), portrays the soon-to-be-disposed Edgar Allan Poe, whose stories have become the basis for a serial killer's murder spree. Add to this that history tells us quite a different story about Poe: he never worked with the Baltimore Police, his stories never became the basis for a psychotic mind's perverted practice, and the film's telling of his death is flat-out inaccurate. So, how does this mish-mash of historical inaccuracy play out for audiences? The answer is, wonderfully: The Raven is a smart, well-acted thriller that ushers us into the summer movie season with a bang.


Cusack shines as the melancholy author who, when the film starts, is oft-inebriated and can barely pay off his bar tab before being summarily dismissed onto the street. His recent release of the poem Raven has netted him fame but not fortune, and …

Opening Sequence For THE DICTATOR

Watch the opening sequence for THE DICTATOR.

THE DICTATOR is about “the parallel stories of a goat herder and deposed foreign dictator who gets lost in this country.” But the studio describes it as “the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed,”.


Cohen plays both the goat herder and the deposed foreign dictator who gets lost in the U.S. Once again, just like Bruno and Borat, this movie will depend heavily on improvisational skills. Jason Mantzoukas plays Cohen’s sidekick, a fellow from the Middle East. Ben Kingsley plays “one of two Middle Eastern characters in the plot” Anna Faris plays the female lead.

Also starring Megan Fox, John C. Reilly, , Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer, and David Mandel

make sure to check back we will be hosting a give away and movie screening for the film.

It is inspired by the novel Zabibah and The King by Saddam Hussein.

Images From Django Unchained

EW got their hands on 2 images from Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming revenge western Django Unchained.

The bond Jamie Foxx wants to break this time around is not a bad romance, but something far uglier and more painful: his slave status in the pre-Civil War South, which is the obstacle preventing him from going in search of his sold-off wife, played by Kerry Washington.

The film is in  theaters on Dec. 25, and we also talk with Foxx about this southern-fried take on the spaghetti western.


Does he think Django Unchained will be controversial? “Oh, hell yeah,” Foxx says. “You kidding me?”

The Oscar winner describes his character as Shaft’s “Richard Roundtree meets Clint Eastwood.”
After being sent to a chain gang after rebelling against his owners, Django is recruited by a German bounty hunter (Inglorious Basterd’s Oscar winner Christoph Waltz, below, with Foxx) to help him settle an old score. Django has information that Waltz’s Dr. King Schultz needs, so the German mercenary liberates th…

THE FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT Movie Review By: Matt C

THE FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT Movie Review By: Matt C

If you own a lot of movies, think about those which offer any amount of deleted scenes. These tidbits offer unique insights into directions the film could have taken; watch the scenes from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan or Aliens and don't tell me those shouldn't have been included. But for the most part, deleted scenes end up on the cutting room floor for a reason: they drag down the story, or take it in a different direction that could ultimately lose audiences. That's the problem with The Five Year Engagement, a movie that doesn't know when to say when and ultimately loses audiences with both its weirdness and caravan of unnecessarily strange characters.


Engagement tells the story of Tom (Jason Segel, The Muppets) and Violet (Emily Blunt, The Adjustment Bureau), who decide to get married after meeting the previous New Years in San Francisco. Tom is a successful sous chef, while Violet is hoping to land a post-doct…

Muppets 2 Is Confirmed. Lasseter Talks Pixar's Next Film

Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy have been making the media rounds a lot lately, and their stop in Las Vegas yesterday brought some pretty exciting news. It was at Disney's CinemaCon panel that president of production Sean Bailey announced that there will officially be a "Muppets 2."

This is something we've heard plenty about already, like the fact Jason Segel won't be involved and the movie will introduce plenty of new characters. But it's nice to have the movie finally confirmed by Disney so that we know we can look forward to it coming out... well, eventually. Bailey didn't have any more details to share about the movie other than the fact it is actually happening.

However, Disney and Pixar animation chief John Lasseter did have some news about Pixar's upcoming line-up.

It turns out the animation studio is trying to bring together a film based around the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos. The movie has no release date yet, but it will be directed by…
