Billy Bob Thornton Joins FX's Fargo

Billy Bob Thornton is heading to FX's Fargo.

The Oscar winner has been tapped to play Lorne Malvo, the rootless, manipulative man who meets a small-town insurance salesman and sets him on a path of destruction, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. Steve Buscemi played a similar role in the 1996 feature.

The 10-episode limited series is inspired by the Coen brothers' 1996 best picture nominee and will follow an all-new "true crime" story with a new case and characters all seeped in the humor, murder and "Minnesota nice" of the original.

Fargo hails from My Generation's Noah Hawley, who will pen the script as well as executive produce. Additionally, Joel and Ethan Coen, the writers, directors and producers behind the film starring Frances McDormand, William H. Macy and Buscemi, are on board to exec produce alongside former network chief-turned-producer Warren Littlefield and Geyer Kosinski. Emmy winner Adam Bernstein (30 Rock) will direct the premiere.

Production on the effort from MGM Television and FX Productions is set to begin in the fall, which will position it for a spring 2014 premiere. MGM Television will be the lead studio and will handle worldwide distribution of the series outside of the U.S. and Canada.

The news comes as FX Networks makes an aggressive push into limited series, with a recently launched division run by HBO vet Gina Balian. (She reports to Nick Grad, and Eric Schrier, FX Networks' presidents of original programming.) Earlier this summer, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf told reporters that the plan would be to do one limited series in the next fiscal year, Fargo, then two a year after that and three the year following. "We're debating whether to put one on FX and one on FXM or both on FXM -- or both on FX,” he said at the time, adding: “We haven't decided yet, partially, again, because we don't know what we're picking up and where we think is most appropriate distribution-wise."

This marks Thornton's first return to a regular small-screen role since the 1990s series Hearts Afire and The Outsiders. Thornton, who won an Oscar for penning Sling Blade and earned nominations for acting roles in that as well as A Simple Plan, is repped by WME, Media Talent Group and Myman Abell.

Samuel L. Jackson Joins The Secret Service

Having already locked in its two heroes, Fox and director Matthew Vaughn look one step closer to gearing up production on “The Secret Service” with Samuel L. Jackson now set to play the villain.

Pic already stars Colin Firth and Taron Egerton with Vaughn directing.

Marv Films will finance and produce the film, based on the comic series by Mark Millar and David Gibbons. Production is expected to start this fall.

Vaughn and Jane Goldman have written the adaptation of the Mark Millar and David Gibbons graphic novel.

Story follows a veteran secret agent who takes a young upstart under his wing.

Vaughn had always intended to have a big star as his main antagonist, having already pursued Tom Cruise and Leonardo DiCaprio.

With Jackson now in place, Vaughn’s last job is to find the female lead. As Variety first reported Vaughn has shown interest in Emma Watson and “Dark Shadows” actress Bella Heathcote, but no decision has been made yet.

Get Ready For 4 Avatar Films

Yesterday’s news that James Cameron has hired Black Dahlia screenwriter Josh Friedman to work on Avatar 2 with him was apparently just the tip of the iceberg lurking in Pandora’s oceans (assuming Pandora’s oceans have cold enough zones for icebergs, which remains to be seen). Regardless, Cameron has now made good on his statement of May last year about being the Avatar business, confirming he’ll make Avatar 2, 3 and 4 ready for release in a year apart from 2016 onwards.

It appears that spending time in New Zealand working on the stories has allowed some of Peter Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings spirit to creep into Cameron's already workaholic brain. Now Cameron and 20th Century Fox have gone public with the announcement that, in addition to Friedman, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes co-writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver and Savages scribe Shane Salerno will each take co-scribbling duties on the three new trips to Pandora. Salerno has form collaborating with Cameron, as he worked on the as-yet-unmade new version of Fantastic Voyage.

“Building upon the world we created with Avatar has been a rare and incredibly rewarding experience. In writing the new films, I’ve come to realize that Avatar’s world, story and characters have become even richer than I anticipated, and it became apparent that two films would not be enough to capture everything I wanted to put on screen," says Cameron. "And to help me continue to expand this universe, I’m pleased to bring aboard Amanda, Rick, Shane and Josh – all writers I’ve long admired – to join me in completing the films’ screenplays.”

The current production plan is for Cameron to go full Jackson and shoot all three simultaneously starting next year, with each writer (or writers in Jaffa and Silver’s case) working on one script. As for release? Expect Avatar 2 in December 2016, followed by the third in 2017 and the fourth in, you guessed it, 2018.

Artemis Fowl Coming To The Big Screen

People thought it would never happen, but Disney and Harvey Weinstein, who famously went their separate ways in 2005, are teaming up on a movie.

Disney and Weinstein are developing an adaptation of Artemis Fowl for the big screen. The live-action feature will be based on the first and second installments in Disney Publishing Worldwide’s best-selling children’s series, written by Eoin Colfer.

"If you would have told me five years ago I would be producing a project with Disney I would have thought you were crazy,” said Weinstein in a statement. “I feel as though everything is coming full circle considering Bob De Niro and Jane Rosenthal brought me this book while I was still at Miramax and within hours I told them I wanted the rights to the film."

Fowl’s film rights were initially purchased by Miramax in 2001. The company was then run by Weinstein and the development process saw several drafts from a succession of writers and even directors.

When Weinstein and his brother, Bob Weinstein, left the company in 2005 and formed The Weinstein Co., the project then fell under the Disney banner and sat dormant for years. The project, however, was one of the titles that Weinstein would be allowed to produce as part of the separation settlement.

Fowl is back with a screenplay by Michael Goldenberg, who wrote Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, a movie made when now-Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn was president of Warner Bros. Weinstein now becomes an active producer on the back-in-action project while De Niro and Rosenthal act as executive producers.

Disney Studios production head Sean Bailey said the books’ “balance of mystery, adventure and family appeal [make it] a natural fit for Disney” while Disney Studios chairman Horn called Weinstein “one of the preeminent producers in the industry, with impeccable taste and creative instincts.”

“I had a wonderful time working with Harvey during my tenure at Warner Bros., and I'm very happy to continue that relationship here at Disney.”

Weinstein worked with Horn on co-productions of The Aviator, Starsky and Hutch and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Fowl is, according to Disney, “about 12-year-old Artemis who is a millionaire, a genius -- and above all, a criminal mastermind. But Artemis doesn’t know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy (Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit) to harness her magic to save his family. These aren't the fairies of the bedtime stories -- they're dangerous.”

The popular series has more than 21 million copies in print in 44 languages worldwide.

ALL IS LOST Trailer Starring Robert Redford

Watch the official trailer for ALL IS LOST, written and directed by J.C. Chandor and starring Robert Redford, via Yahoo! Movies.

ALL IS LOST will open in theaters October 18, 2013.

Academy Award winner Robert Redford stars in All Is Lost, an open-water thriller about one man's battle for survival against the elements after his sailboat is destroyed at sea. Written and directed by Academy Award nominee J.C. Chandor (Margin Call) with a musical score by Alex Ebert (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros), the film is a gripping, visceral and powerfully moving tribute to ingenuity and resilience. Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner's intuition, and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest.

Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.

Trask Industries: Your Future. It Has Begun

With the official marketing team now taking over promotion duties from director Bryan Singer’s Twitpicpocalypse on X-Men: Days Of Future Past, we’re seeing the various viral tricks creep on to the ‘net. The first proper inklings came during the San Diego Comic-Con, with glimpses of Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage)’s Sentinel robots. Now the Trask Industries site has exploded with new material on genetic mutations and technology, including a creepy video about the company’s progress through the last 50 years.



The site explores the scientist Trask's campaign against mutants, fuelled by his fear that regular humans would become extinct. As the spiel reads, “his early theories were ridiculed by his contemporaries and with no one to fund his research, Trask cared enough about humanity to invest in the founding of Trask Industries in 1967. Since its founding, Trask Industries has been at the forefront of human progress, partnering with domestic and international governments since the Nixon administration. Trask’s early ambition for genetic progress continues to fuel our technological innovations today.”

Mostly, of course, surrounding the development of the Sentinel programme, because as science fiction has always taught us, putting our future into the hands of machines never ends badly…

All this, of course, leads to the dark alternate future wasteland we initially see in Days Of Future Past and the mission of our mutant heroes to change the timeline so it never happens. The film, which features Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Daniel Cudmore, Omar Sy, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Fan Bingbing, and Anna Paquin

Reunited with members of his Fighter and Silver Linings acting teams, Russell focuses on the intersection of the government and the Mob in the New York area in the late '70 and '80s, applying his textured realism to a world of entrapment, stylish swagger and raw humor.

First Images From American Hustle Starring Christian Bale & Bradley Cooper

With back-to-back Oscar-nominated films on his résumé, David O. Russell has cornered the American dream.


Following the success of 2010'sThe Fighter and 2012's Silver Linings Playbook, the director will head back into the heart of awards season with American Hustle (in limited release on Dec. 13, in theaters everywhere Dec. 25), a fictionalized film based on the FBI's Abscam sting operation.

Reunited with members of his Fighter and Silver Linings acting teams, Russell focuses on the intersection of the government and the Mob in the New York area in the late '70 and '80s, applying his textured realism to a world of entrapment, stylish swagger and raw humor.

Christian Bale stars as Irving Rosenfeld, a brilliant Bronx con-man whose specialization in stolen art catches the attention of unhinged FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). (Those tight curls are "not a perm, just for the record," says Russell, noting Cooper's character emulates a style popularized by '70s professional baseball players.)

DiMaso forces Irving and his British lover/accomplice Sydney (Amy Adams) into a web of New Jersey power brokers and the Mafia. Jennifer Lawrence is on hand as Irving's loose cannon of a Long Island house wife, Rosalyn, who threatens the entire operation. "Everybody gets to do something we've never seen before," says Russell. "That's exciting to me."

New to Russell's orbit is Jeremy Renner as Carmine Polito, a volatile New Jersey mayor keeping his community afloat in the midst of a recession. "That era was very much like our era now," says Russell. "The economy was not in a good place and people had to struggle to figure out how to reinvent themselves."

The real Abscam scandal ended on the national stage, with a U.S. senator and five congressmen convicted of corruption.

The American Hustleteam saw a different side of history in April, bearing witness to the Boston Marathon bombings. "We were shooting in an outlying area that day," recalls Russell, who was told to stay indoors along with the cast as production shut down. "Christian Bale's wife was the first one to get through to him (on set). It was very surreal. It was very upsetting."

Russell is editing American Hustle, continuing what he describes as the year's "intense'' momentum (the film was in camera tests even as he walked Oscar's red carpet). But Russell is confident the effort will pay off. Ever since The Fighter, he says, "I feel very clear about what I want to do."

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa Trailer

Real people. Real reactions. Real messed up. Johnny Knoxville is back as Irving Zisman in Bad Grandpa.


86 year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companions, his 8 year-old Grandson Billy in "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.” This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera.

Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens.

Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.



In theaters everywhere October 25th

Flash On His Way To The Small Screen

While the DC Universe is expanding in fits and starts on cinema screens with the recent announcement of the Batman/Superman film at Comic-Con, the other major superheroes from the canon are having a tougher time of it. It appears, however, that Barry Allen – one of the people who filled the Flash’s suit through the years – will be getting his chance on TV via Arrow.

Talking at the Television Critics Association press tour, network boss for the CW dropped word that the start of Allen's tale will be told on an episode of the show, which chronicles the adventures of Green Arrow.

"We're planning an origin story," Pedowitz said. "We'll see how it goes. Hopefully it'll go well. We do want to expand on the DC universe." Assuming it goes well, we could see a Flash TV show joining Arrow on screens, though that has yet to be decided.

A big factor might be Warner Bros.’ plans for the character in cinemas, especially in light of the slow crawl towards a Justice League film. The companies have traditionally shied away from having simultaneous TV series and movies featuring the same character, so that could end up derailing or possibly just delaying plans. And it’s not like Allen hasn’t been on TV before, though the previous live-action take ran for just one season in the early 1990s.

Still, Barry Allen is getting better treatment than Wonder Woman, with Pedowitz revealing on the same panel that a reboot series called Amazon is on hold because of script issues. Diana just can’t lasso a break…

BAD MILO Red Band Trailer

Watch the red band trailer for BAD MILO, via Yahoo! Movies:

Starring Ken Marino, Gillian Jacobs, Patrick Warburton, Mary Kay Place, Stephen Root and Peter Stormare

Duncan's (Ken Marino) life is a real pain in the ass. Tormented by a manipulative, crooked boss (Patrick Warburton), a nagging mother (Mary Kay Place), a deadbeat new age dad (Stephen Root), and a sweet, yet pressuring, wife (Gillian Jacobs), his mounting stress starts to trigger an insufferable gastrointestinal reaction.

Out of ideas and at the end of his rope, Duncan seeks the help of a hypnotherapist (Peter Stormare), who helps him discover the root of his unusual stomach pain: a pintsized demon living in his intestine that, triggered by excessive anxiety, forces its way out and slaughters the people who have angered him. Out of fear that his intestinal gremlin may target its wrath on the wrong person, Duncan attempts to befriend it, naming it Milo and indulging it to keep its seemingly insatiable appetite at bay.

Star Wars Rebels Images & Logo

Fans of Dave Filoni's animated series, The Clone Wars, found their glasses half empty when it was announced recently that the show would be coming, somewhat unexpectedly, to an end. Yet, very quickly, their glasses were half-filled, their frowns were turned upside down, and their dark side turned to the light side as it was revealed that Filoni was hard at work on Star Wars Rebels, a new animated series which will bridge the gap between Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.


At Star Wars Celebration Europe, in Essen, Germany, Empire looked on as Filoni, sporting his trademark cowboy hat, revealed a little more about the show. Although he declined to state exactly how far after the events of Sith the show would take place, he did reveal a new logo, and a host of new concept art, which is visually inspired by the unused concept sketches that Ralph McQuarrie drew for the original movies.


Chief amongst the new concepts was the show's central spaceship, The Ghost, which Filoni described as a cross between the Millennium Falcon and a B-17 bomber, of which he's a huge fan. Filoni also confirmed that Rebels would follow a group of "kids" as they go on the run from the burgeoning might of the Empire. "The Millennium Falcon was a ship, it was a place, it was a home," said Filoni. "We wanted to give this new generation of kids a place they could feel safe in when they’re on the run from the Empire."

Filoni also suggested that Rebels would include characters that he had a hand in creating for The Clone Wars, with the smart money being on the presence of his feisty Padawan, Ahsoka Tano (voiced by Ashley Eckstein), and talked about his McQuarriefied/Miyazaki-esque approach to refining the designs of classic Star Wars vehicles like the TIE Fighter and the Star Destroyer. "It's intentionally going to look different [from Clone Wars]," he said.

Beverly Hills Cop Still In The Works

Though it recently looked like the Beverly Hills Cop saga would continue on television, Paramount Pictures has begun moving fast on another movie. The studio has enlisted Eddie Murphy to reprise his role as Axel Foley, and they’ve set Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec to write that script. That duo has done very well at the studio, with recent script credits that include Mission: Impossible–Ghost Protocol and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remake.

The series began in 1984, tailor made for Murphy as the tough talking Detroit cop who was an outsider and excoriated by authority, but who was the smartest cop on the block. Martin Brest directed the first one, Tony Scott helmed the second, and the last one was directed by John Landis in 1994, back when Murphy was one of the studio’s biggest stars. The series grossed near $750 million collectively. Paramount adds that to another retro project that originated in the ’80s, a sequel to 1986′s Top Gun, which has been in limbo since the film’s director, Scott, committed suicide. Tom Cruise was ready to star at that point.

We hear the newest installment in the film franchise was fueled by the interest sparked by the Beverly Hills Cop pilot this past season. The project, written by Shawn Ryan and executive produced by Murphy and Ryan, ignited a bidding war before landing at CBS last fall where it went to a pilot starring Brandon T. Jackson as Axel’s son. Murphy reprised his role in a scene-stealing turn that had people talking. It showed that the character and Murphy’s portrayal are still pretty potent. The pilot was produced by Sony Pictures TV, with Paramount, as rights holder, coming on board after the pilot green light for what the company billed as its re-entry into television. (Paramount is restarting a TV production operation.) For whatever reason, Paramount-CBS politics or pilot testing depending who you ask, the project shockingly did not go to series. But it drew enough attention to the franchise to spawn a new movie.
