Marc Webb To Return For Spider-Man Sequel

The star and helmer will be back for a 2014 release.

Ending months of speculation about whether he would return to the Spider-Man franchise he helped reboot, director Marc Webb has signed on to helm the webslinger's next outing for Columbia Pictures.

The sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man will begin shooting in early 2013, with Andrew Garfield also returning as the superhero. Emma Stone is in talks to continue her role as Peter Parker's love interest Gwen Stacy. There has been little doubt that Garfield and Stone would be back for a second outing, but Webb's deal has been the major question mark. Webb was paid roughly $1 million for the first chapter in the Spider-Man reboot, according to sources, and was looking for a pay raise in the wake of the film's $750 million-plus worldwide box-office haul and fanboy response.

The screenplay is by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner based on a previous draft by James Vanderbilt. The film will be produced by Avi Ara…

Is Daniel Radcliffe Ready For Frankenstein?

Is Daniel Radcliffe pasty enough and ghostly enough to star in “Frankenstein”?

Apparently so. The “Harry Potter” star is interested in playing the lead role of Hunchback in Paul McGuigan’s revisionist take on the classic tale, a person familiar with the project told TheWrap.

The film is in the works at Twentieth Century Fox, where the focus for now is getting a finalized script, at which point serious talks will begin with actors, the person said.

Earlier this month, McGuigan signed on to direct the film for Fox and producers Davis Entertainment.

Based on a script by Max Landis (“Chronicle”), this adaptation of Mary Shelley's novel of the same name, puts a sci-fi take on this classic story about a creature produced through a scientific experiment.  

Hunchback is described as pathologically dirty and dressed in old clowns clothing.

Several dozen other Frankenstein-based projects are in the works in Hollywood.

Shawn Levy was previously attached to the project but reportedly parted …

HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA Review. One Of The Best!

HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA Review  By: MattInRC 

HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA is sidesplittingly funny, inventive, just a little gross, and is the best animated feature of 2012 so far.11 2012 has been a rough year for Adam Sandler. Party to one of the worst films of all time in the disgusting/disturbing/ridiculous That's My Boy, it proved that the SNL alumni must leave producing films to more competent people. Another actor with similar troubles is Kevin James, whose fat-man loser comedy persona failed to resonate with fans in the totally forgettable Zookeeper (in which Sandler has a cameo). And in the best example of misery enjoying company, the two joined forces to destroy Grown Ups and The Dilemma. So it goes without saying that the release of HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA  was viewed with a healthy amount of skepticism by critics hoping for greatness but prepared for disaster. Gladly, I can say they've finally done something well: HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA is a hilarious film that helps to redeem our fall…

Who Is The Winter Solider?

IGN put to get this pretty cool history lesson for all you non-comic book fans, about the history of The Winter Solider. What story line would you like to see the film follow?

Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be released April 4, 2014.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the subtitle suggests a respected comic book storyline from the 2000s that resurrected Captain America's sidekick Bucky as a brainwashed super-assassin known as the Winter Solider.

Quentin Tarantino Cameo In Django Unchained

Rex Linn is best known for appearing in CSI: Miami (as Detective Frank Tripp), The Walking Dead (as Palmer) and Cliffhanger (as Agent "Goddamn" Travers) but his biggest recent movie role so far is in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming spaghetti Western, Django Unchained – but it turns out the director has taken some of his lines for his own unplanned cameo.

“Quentin told me that he liked the scene so much he wanted to be in it, too, and that he would also be taking some of my lines,” Linn explained to Oklahoma news site NewsOK.com

“So, you'll know the scenes when you see them. We'll be on the screen with Don Johnson and Jonah Hill. The scenes may not be long, but you will remember them.”

Precise plot details around Django are few and far between, and even at this point, Linn's role as Tennessee Harry is unclear. The general plot goes like this, however...

Jamie Foxx stars as Django, a slave who is rescued from a chain gang by German bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (C…

Mark Millar To Oversee Marvel Franchise For Fox

20th Century Fox has inked a deal with comics-world guru Mark Millar to serve as a creative consultant on the studio’s projects based on Marvel Comics properties.

Millar wrote several lauded Marvel comic books such as The Ultimates, Civil War and Wolverine: Old Man Logan before moving on to found Millarworld (millarworld.tv), where he continues to develop existing film franchise titles Wanted and Kick-Ass as well as newer comic properties Nemesis -- which was being developed at Fox as a Tony Scott directing vehicle -- The Secret Service and Superior.

“In addition to his groundbreaking Marvel work, Mark is simply one of the most original voices in comics today and will be an invaluable resource to us and to our filmmakers as we look for fresh opportunities to innovate within our shared Marvel universe," Fox production president Emma Watts said.

Millar will work with Fox on developing new avenues for its tentpole X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises.

Identity Thief Trailer Is Here

Here is the first trailer for Identity Thief. Horrible Bosses’ Jason Bateman and Bridesmaids’ Melissa McCarthy lead the cast of Identity Thief, an all-star comedy in which a regular guy is forced to extreme measures to clear his name. With everything to lose after his identity is stolen, he’ll find out how crazed you can get trying to settle a bad credit score.

Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using to finance these sprees reads “Sandy Bigelow Patterson”… and it belongs to an accounts rep (Bateman) who lives halfway across the U.S.11 With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads south to confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life. And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is …

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Looking For A Director

20th Century Fox has come up with a short list to replace Rupert Wyatt as the director of Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. I’m hearing that Cloverfield’s Matt Reeves is atop the list, along with The Disappearance Of Alice Creed helmer J Blakeson, 28 Weeks Later helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, Take Shelter and Mud director Jeff Nichols, Pacific Rim helmer Guillermo del Toro, The Impossible helmer Juan Antonio Bayona and Looper helmer Rian Johnson (Johnson’s reps deny he is in the hunt).

Fox production president Emma Watts is steering the effort to fill the plum post that Wyatt exited. Deadline revealed September 17 that Wyatt, who helmed the superb franchise reboot Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, would not reprise. I’d heard at the time that his exit was similar to the same reason that Gary Ross stepped out of Hunger Games: Catching Fire; with Wyatt uncomfortable about making the May 23, 2014 release date that the studio announced in May.

This should all be decided rather quickly, and t…

Welcome To The Punch James McAvoy

First image from Eran 'Shifty' Creevy's intriguing new London-based thriller Welcome To The Punch is careering towards the big screen like the kind of souped-up Capri the Professionals used to hoon around in. The hair isn't as permed nor the trousers as tight these days.

Punch, though, is a different beast to The Sweeney and co. "Whenever we came across a line that sounds a bit geezer-ish or gangster-ish we just got rid of it," stresses Creevy's co-lead and the film's rogue gangster, Mark Strong.11

"The script didn't feel like it had the humility and humbleness of a British film," adds James McAvoy, troubled 'tec Max Lewinsky in the film. "Don't get me wrong - I love British film and I love gritty, British drama. But we're not trying to go, 'This is the real world.' We're going, 'Here's a fuckin' rip-roaring, really emotionally powerful piece of entertainment,' you know?"11

Justin Timberlake Has The Last Drop

"Trouble With the Curve" star Justin Timberlake is having no trouble lining up his next job, as he's in talks to topline Good Universe's romantic dramedy "The Last Drop," sources familiar with the project tell Variety.

Peter Sollett, who previously worked with the Good Universe team on "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist," is attached to direct from a script by Brandon and Phil Murphy that appeared on the 2011 Black List.

Should a deal make, Timberlake would play a charming alcoholic who works as a restaurant critic for New York Magazine. When he falls for a young woman, he realizes he must overcome his self-destructive addiction in order to have a real chance with her.

Greg Shapiro ("The Hurt Locker") will produce via his Kingsgate Films banner, while Good Universe toppers Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake will exec produce.

Timberlake continues to eschew blockbuster fare in favor of challenging dramatic material, having previously earne…

First Image Of Hugh Jackman As The Wolverine

I can hear all the ladies going crazy right now. Here is the first image of Hugh Jackman as The Wolverine.

So far, X-Men fans awaiting James Mangold's upcoming adaptation of The Wolverine, Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's astonishingly good 1982 limited comic series, have had to make do with dodgy pap shots and the occasional tweet from either the star or the director. Now, thanks to this brand new official still, that's all changed. Meet the new old Wolverine: fierce, furious and surprisingly veiny – but in an exceptionally toned and very muscular way, of course.

Gina Carano Attached To Female Expendables Film

As "Haywire" star Gina Carano continues to establish herself as an action heroine with an upcoming turn in "The Fast and the Furious 6," the former MMA fighter has become attached to topline an all-female riff on "The Expendables," which is being set up by Adi Shankar's banner 1984 Private Defense Contractors. Shankar will produce for the shingle, which plans to fully finance the "Expendables"-inspired project.

Company remains in talks with several prominent actresses affiliated with the action genre in addition to Carano, who director Steven Soderbergh hand-picked to star in "Haywire" alongside more experienced thesps such as Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum.

Dutch Southern, who wrote the 2010 Black List script "Hoof Harrington's Greatest Hits," was tapped to write the estrogen-powered action pic back in August, just as "The Expendables 2" was opening atop the box office.

Dwayne Johnson To Star In Lore

Barry Sonnenfeld is in talks to direct Dwayne Johnson in Lore, a film based on an Ashley Wood IDW graphic novel about a secret order that defends the world against creatures thought to be mythological, but which actually exist. It becomes another big movie for Warner Bros. The film is being produced by Mad Chance’s Andrew Lazar is producing with Circle Of Confusion’s David Alpert and Rick Jacobs.

This was a hot job, and I’d heard the studio met with a bunch of good directors. Sonnenfeld makes a degree of sense. When I first wrote about the project when it was acquired in April in a 7-figure spec deal that involved four studios fighting for it, it was described to me as tonally similar to Men In Black, and Sonnenfeld directed all three of those. Cory Goodman wrote the script with Jeremy Lott. Ted Adams from IDW Publishing and Wood are exec producers along with Mad Chance’s Miri Yoon.

Jake Gyllenhaal Could Be A Prisoner

Now that he’s fully on board, director Denis Villeneuve is wasting no time making sure that thriller Prisoners finally makes the leap from in-development buzz project to fully functioning feature film. He’s now looking to get a recent collaborator aboard, with Jake Gyllenhaal in talks.

Gyllenhaal and Villeneuve must’ve gotten along while they were shooting indie thriller An Enemy this year, as the director has targeted the actor to play a detective investigating the kidnapping of a young girl and her best friend in a small town. Gyllenhaal had apparently been considering the movie before he met Villeneuve, but hadn’t made a final decision.

If he locks in a deal, Gyllenhaal will go up against Hugh Jackman, the distraught father of the girl, who takes matters into his own hands by kidnapping the man he thinks is responsible. Melissa Leo was also recently cast in an unspecified role.

Tom Hardy Climbs Everest

Tom Hardy is in early talks to star in Everest for Sony Pictures. He will play George Mallory, the climber who tried three times in the 1920s to become the first man to scale the world’s highest mountain. Doug Liman will direct the film after he completes All You Need Is Kill at Warner Bros with Tom Cruise. An adaptation of Jeffrey Archer’s book Paths Of Glory, Everest has been adapted by Sheldon Turner (Up In The Air). Jennifer Klein is producing, and Dave Bartis, Liman’s partner at Hypnotic, will also be a producer.

Liman, the Bourne Identity and Mr. And Mrs. Smith helmer who is himself an avid climber and fan of the Mallory story, has an actor who is a strong match for the intensity that burned in Mallory to get to the top of the mountain and beat another great climber, Australian George Finch (the grandfather of actor Peter Finch). Everest has been scaled many times since, but it is still dangerous–there are plenty of bodies near the final summit of those who got close but failed–…

Cloud Atlas New Banners

With a tagline like "Past. Present. Future.

HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET Review. Don't Go Down This Street

HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET Review By: RAMA
Did this movie scare the pants off of RAMA?


A thriller that has potential, the concept isn’t all that bad once you think about it twice after the movie ends, the problem is the execution and the delivery. I think there are better ways to handle this concept, sadly it’s handled this way instead. HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET is a thriller that waited almost two years so it can bank on Jennifer Lawrence’s now popular status but perhaps this is one film that should’ve remained shelved…


Seeking a fresh start, newly divorced Sarah (Oscar®-nominee Elisabeth Shue; Leaving Las Vegas, Piranha 3D) and her daughter Elissa (Oscar®-nominee Jennifer Lawrence; The Hunger Games, X-Men: First Class) find the house of their dreams in a small, upscale, rural town. But when startling and unexplainable events begin to happen, Sarah and Elissa learn the town is in the shadows of a chilling secret. Years earlier, in the house next door, a daughter killed her par…
