The Han Solo Movie Is Titled SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

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.

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 t…

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, Bo…

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 N…

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 Justic…

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 cent…

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 dir…
