Tom Cruise Eyed For "Highlander" Reboot

Summit’s attempt to mount a new version of 1986’s action fantasy Highlander has been through the development wringer, with multiple script drafts and several directors attached before dropping off. The studio is hoping to give the film a kick up the casting chain, eyeing Tom Cruise to take over the mentor role originally played by Sean Connery.

Don’t expect to see Cruise practising a Scots brogue any time soon, though: according to The Wrap’s sources, this is still merely wishful thinking on Summit’s part, and Cruise is the sort of big name that everyone approaches first anyway.

Still, it could be an interesting development if he decides he’s up for it, guiding whoever takes over as main man Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert in the original films) through his battle to become the lone immortal stalking the Earth. Or whatever variant on the story current director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan has come up with from the script by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and Melissa Rosenberg. Cruise has been…

Director Mike Nichols Has Passed

Mike Nichols, the stage director and Oscar-winning filmmaker behind The Graduate, has died. He was 83.

Among his many achievements, Nichols laid claim to being one of the only creative people to have scored all four major entertainment industry awards – an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony – but it’s the Oscar for The Graduate on that groaning statuette shelf that he’ll be best remembered for. It’s a film that has grown with age, earning a place in the movie pantheon as a zeitgeist-capturing snapshot of late ‘60s America.

Born Mikhail Igor Peschkowsky in Weimar Berlin, the son of a Russian Jewish doctor, Nichols escaped the Nazis in 1938 with his younger brother. Reunited with his family in New York – and with an Americanised surname – the newly naturalised Nichols went on to study at the University of Chicago. It was there that he discovered a passion for the dramatic arts. Rather than following his father’s footsteps into medicine, he turned to the theatre, adapting August Strindberg pla…

TV Recap: WALKING DEAD "CONSUMED"

TV Recap: WALKING DEAD "CONSUMED"
By: Suepafly

Carol drives off, after Rick asked her to leave, last season. We never did see what Carol did during that time, and it looks like its now reveal time. At least she had a car to take. Carol drove long, without looking back, and found a quiet place to shed some tears. A walker bangs on her window, and Carol is not in the mood to deal with it, so she just drives off as it shambles after her. She reaches another town, and heads inside a law office. She digs through the recycling bin, and tries to sleep alone in the office. Carol is surviving, but not really living. She sees smoke in the distance, and rushes back to the prison. Seeing the guard tower on fire is a bit of a shock.

Nowish. Daryl tells Carol about his time with Beth. They had run into some walkers when she was taken. Now they're following Beth's save-nappers. Carol thinks that he should just run them off the road, but Daryl thinks a wait and follow approach is bet…

Zoolander 2 Adds Penelope Cruz

We’ve been hearing tantalising things about the chances of Zoolander 2 actually coming to life, and a big step has just occurred. Penelope Cruz is now signing on to co-star with Ben Stiller in the comedy sequel. Hey, if Dumb & Dumber can come back and score a hit, why not this?

The Zoolander sequel has been in the works for years, with various script drafts passing through. Justin Theroux, who had been attached to direct before his work on HBO drama The Leftovers got in the way, has written the most recent draft on the script, which Stiller is planning to direct.

Not much is known about the film’s plot yet, save that it apparently is still set ten years after the events of the original, finds Stiller’s Zoolander and Owen Wilson’s Hansel rejected by the fashion industry after they age out of the sweet spot for male models, leaving them struggling to once again make their names. Deadline reports that there are no deals in place for Wilson or Will Ferrell – who played preening villain…

Interview: John Beaton Hill Talks Wolves of Savin Hill, How It Was Making The Film & More

Interview By: Beevers

John Beaton Hill recently walked away with the Chris Brinker award at the San Diego Film Festival for his crime thriller Wolves of Savin Hill – and with good reason, the film is terrific. We spoke to the Boston-born filmmaker about his De Palma-esque thriller, due for release next year.


What is it about Los Angeles that lends itself to a good crime thriller story?

The setting. Los Angeles is a fantastic and beautiful place and when it’s lit up at night there’s nothing like it. It has its own qualities. It’s also big, and in this way a person can find refuge even from himself. There’s a duality to Los Angeles that makes it both quite beautiful and alluring but also sinister. As a setting, it can make a film special. We looked for this in our film and I think we captured the city well. We were certainly thinking in this regard.

How long ago did you set out to make the movie? How tough was it to get off the ground?

Approximately two years ago we started this journey …

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 Review: A Darker, Deeper Revolution

Although it's beginning is a little slow, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 takes us deeper into the world of Panem's rebellious spirit.
For someone who likes but not loves The Hunger Games franchise - and have never read the books - it's been nice to see the story of Panem evolve by exploding into rebellious violence, perhaps serving as a warning to current nations who might wish to radicalize themselves in their twisted perception of a new world order. Regardless of where current world politics will take us, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 is a deeper, darker, and more desolate sequel than perhaps some fair-weather would like, but I think its tone is right on the money, even if it's not a perfect product.

"When we last left our show," the radical Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) had been rescued from the Quarter Quell edition of the 75th Hunger Games, herself having destroyed the contest in one feel swoop. The result has left her injured an…

Brad Pitt Attached To Alpha

Lionsgate has picked up Alpha, a sci-fi project that sees Robopocalypse author Daniel H. Wilson teaming up with Brad Pitt and his Plan B banner.

Anthony Scott Burns, a Canadian filmmaker, is attached to make his feature debut with Alpha, which Pitt would produce with his Plan B partners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner.

Wilson came up with the original idea and will write the screenplay. Details of the project are being kept secret, but it is known to be sci-fi survival story that has shades of Jack London, the author behind such tales as White Fang and The Call of the Wild.

Part of the pitch involved a fake commercial, shot by Burns, for a fictional company that is central to the story.

Wilson is the author behind books with a robotics bent, such as How to Survive a Robot Uprising and Robogenesis as well as Robopocalypse, which Steven Spielberg came close to adapting. He also wrote several screenplays, including a remake of Cherry 2000 for MGM and adapting his book Bro-Jitsu: The Ma…

Pitch Perfect 2 Trailer Has Arrived

The Barden Bellas are back, back, back and this time they're taking on the world, as revealed in the new trailer for Pitch Perfect 2. The trouble is that the world doesn't like America, and Beca Mitchell (Anna Kendrick) and the gang are going to have to sing (and dance) like never before if they're going to make it. And, with any luck, not vomit as much as they did in the first one.

As well as the returning cast you were hoping for - Rebel Wilson as "Fat Amy", Adam DeVine as the leader of the Treblemakers, Bumper Allen, and many more - there are plenty of new names to look forward to, including Hailee Steinfeld as Bella newcomer Emily. You've also got mud wrestling, some magic involving dry leaves and the concept of "Loser" as a language.



The first film came out in 2012, sneakily hauling in $113 million at the box office, as well as winning over a legion of die-hard fans, who will no doubt be champing at the bit to see what is going to aca-happen ac…

Chris Pratt Is The Cowboy Ninja Viking

Read on to learn which role Chris Pratt will play in this upcoming film. After a breakout, blockbuster genre franchise hit, some actors like to retreat to the safety and 'credibility' of a gritty low-budget indie drama or two. Not so for Chris Pratt. Still a star of Parks And Recreation, he managed to find time to follow Guardians Of The Galaxy with a little thing called Jurassic World, and has now chosen his next role in another nascent comic book franchise. He'll star as lead assassin Duncan in Universal's developing Cowboy Ninja Viking according to Collider

Created by writer A. J. Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo, Cowboy Ninja Viking is an Image Comics series about secret counter-intelligence agents with multiple personality disorders. Various suitable candidates for the 'Triplet' programme were brought together by psychotherapist Dr. Sebastian Ghislain, but when the project collapsed, the subjects went their own ways as hired assassins.
