Deep Throat star Linda Lovelace Biopic Gets Director

Deep Throat star Linda Lovelace Biopic Gets Director Lovelace, born Linda Boreman in 1949, was a rather sad figure who led a rather sheltered childhood before falling in with Chuck Traynor, who became her husband and got her started in porn - by her account, at gunpoint. She went on to star in the massively famous Deep Throat , gaining notoriety as a result, but never saw much of the proceeds and went on to become a campaigner against the porn industry. She died following a car crash in 2002. This film has been in development for a while: W. Merritt Johnson, who's writing the script based on Eric Danville's biography, was working on it as far back as 2007, when Courtney Love was mooted as the star. It's not to be confused with Inferno, the other Lovelace biopic that briefly had Anna Faris lined up as its star. As far as we know, however, this won't be based on the Broadway musical about her.

"Remember Me" Starring Robert Pattinson Trailer And Pictures

"Remember Me" Starring Robert Pattinson Trailer And Pictures Definitely a change from his roles in the Twilight Sage films and I think that this is a good thing for him not to be stereo typed into the Edward role that made him into a world know Icon at the moment. For him to show that he can act will only be a good thing for his career, this Twilight hype will only last so long. Remember Me in HD Tyler Roth (Robert Pattinson), a "rebellious young man" in New York City has a strained relationship with his father (Pierce Brosnan) since his brother's suicide.

Hollywood's Biggest Flops in The Last 5 Years

Hollywood's Biggest Flops in The Last 5 Years Sean Penn delivered "one of his greatest screen performances" as Willie Stark in " All the King's Men, " Nevertheless, the Sony Pictures film earned just $9 million at the worldwide boxoffice. Factor in its $55 million production budget and it amounts to Hollywood's biggest flop of the past five years, according to the prolific listmakers at Forbes magazine. After eliminating movies without star power, Forbes divided each movie's boxoffice take by its production budget to figure out the shortfall. "All the King's Men" failed to earn back 84% of its production budget, bad enough to earn it first place among flops. In second place is " The Express ," Universal's movie starring Dennis Quaid about late college football star Ernie Davis. The 2008 movie failed to earn back 75% of its production budget. Fox's 2005 film " Stay " was third, a movie that failed to earn back

Jacob's Arch-Rival Returns To "Lost"

Jacob's Arch-Rival Returns To "Lost" With "Lost" fans eager for answers in the final season of the ABC drama, at least one of the show's mystery may get resolved: Who is Jacob's nemesis? Titus Welliver, who played a mysterious character in Season 5, is set to reprise his role in the second part of "Lost's" sixth season, which premieres Feb. 2. Jacob's nemesis (aka Man in Black), who last appeared in Season 5's finale, is an inhabitant of the Island who had spent a century looking for ways to kill Jacob (Mark Pellegrino) until finally succeeding in 2007 by assuming the appearance of the dead John Locke (Terry O'Quinn) and persuading Benjamin Linus (Michael Emerson) to stab Jacob. The Man is Black's name, identity, motives, backstory and bone of contention with Jacob were never revealed, leading to a flurry of speculation among "Lost" fans about who he really is. A number of castaways will be returning to the island

Roman Polanski Must Face The Judge

Roman Polanski Must Face The Judge A Los Angeles Superior Court Judge has denied Roman Polanski's effort to be sentenced in absentia, which his lawyers saw as a possible avenue for him to resolve his 1977 sex case. Judge Peter Espinoza said on Friday that Polanski "needs to surrender" is he is to be sentenced in the case, and if there is to be a hearing on the directors' contention that now deceased Judge Laurence Rittenband engaged in judicial misconduct back then. Bart Dalton, one of Polanski's attorneys, said that they would seek a remedy from a state appeals court. Polanski is in Switzerland under house arrest, awaiting a decision from authorities there on whether he will be extradited. In a contentious and caustic hearing, the director's lead attorney, Chad Hummel, argued that Polanski already had served the time that Rittenband had promised --- some 42 days in a California prison where he underwent a psychiatric assessment. The length of his sentence wou

Night At The Museum 3 In The Works. This is strange Aurora and me just got back from the video store and rented Night At The Museum 2 and she said me if they were going to make a third film, and I get this news. No surprise to anyone with the first two movies being such a hug box office success,bring in more then $1billion worldwide.

I think it’s a really outstanding idea to do ‘Night at the Museum 3,’ “I wonder if someone’s not even already working on a script for that,” he added with a raised eyebrow. “I cannot confirm that for a fact, but I cannot deny it for a fact either… It might be in the works.” And with a smile on his face- “Here’s a little bit, [a] real quick spoiler alert – ‘Night at the Museum 3’ is set in the Liberace Museum,” Please Leave A Comment- Source- Accesshollywood

Tron:Legacy Director Talks Film and Imax

Tron:Legacy Director Talks Film and Imax Joseph Kosinski Talks about Tron:Legacy and The film being in 3d and heading to Imax With principal photography on the film wrapped, the director is hard at work on the visual-effects work Disney is hoping will be unlike anything audiences have ever seen. Much of the work was done last year, but looking at 2010, does it feel like this is an important professional year for you? I'm about two and a half years in on this, with about another year still to go. We still have a tremendous amount of work still to do, because there are a lot of visual effects on a movie like this, and we're also doing it in 3-D, which doubles up everything. Then sound design and tweaking the music. It's not the home stretch by any means. Will the finished film look pretty much like what we've seen in that test footage from Comic-Con? I would say it's not far removed. The teaser, at least tonally, represented the direction I wanted to take it. That seq

"Torchwood” U.S. Version Coming To Fox

“Torchwood” U.S. Version Coming To Fox The project is from BBC Worldwide Prods., with original series creator Russell Davies writing the script. A more straight-faced spinoff of “Doctor Who,” “Torchwood” is about a covert group that investigates and fights alien activity. Two series aired domestically on BBC America as well as last year’s well reviewed stand-alone miniseries, “Children of Earth,” which broke all ratings records for the network. (If you're a fan of serious sci fi such as "Battlestar Galatica" and haven't seen "Children of Earth," rent it. You don't need to know anything about the series. And I know the previews for "Torchwood" can look silly. Trust me, it's terrific. Like "24" with aliens). Unlike U.S. adaptations that have gone awry, “Torchwood” fans can take comfort that the original producing team is on board. In addition to Davies, exec producers include Davies’ producing partner Julie Gardner (former head of d

" We Are The World" Part Two To Benefit Haiti

" We Are The World" Part Two To Benefit Haiti With the aftermath of the effects on Haiti looks like they will be re-recording the song " We Are The World" and recruiting the music industry's heavy hitters, to benefit the relief efforts. The duo is summoning lots and lots of talent from Grammy weekend to stay an extra night — Monday Feb. 1 — and come to the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. There, they will celebrate a quarter century since Ken Kragen, Richie and Michael Jackson organized the original “We Are the World” with Quincy. This time the artists invited include Usher, Natalie Cole, and John Legend. But you can bet that more names will be added shortly and that all the Grammy nominees and participants will be asked to come as well. Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich will produce the event, which will then be turned into a video and single just like it was in 1985. Don’t be surprised if Wyclef Jean joins in, along with Sting, Fergie, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake a

Clash of the Titans To Be In 3D

Clash of the Titans To Be In 3D Warner Bros. will decide in the next 10 days whether to release Louis Leterrier’s remake of action fantasy “Clash of the Titans” in 3D. Warners has ordered a 3D test of the film — set for release on March 26 -- and will screen the converted scenes next week before deciding whether to make the move. Studios across Hollywood are looking into possible 3D conversions in the aftermath of the big boxoffice bonanza called “Avatar.” With conversions, 2D films -- whether newly produced movies or classic titles slotted for release, such as the first two “Toy Story” pics -- are run through a process that turns 2D images into 3D. Most 3D movies, including “Avatar,” are shot in 3D from the start. Co-produced by Legendary Pictures, “Titans” is a re-imagining of a 1981 film that starred Laurence Olivier in the character of Zeus. The role is played by Liam Neeson in the remake, appearing opposing Sam Worthington’s Perseus in the mythology-based actioner. Releasing “Tit

Brock Lesnar Healed And Ready To Return To UFC

Brock Lesnar Healed And Ready To Return To UFC As recently as early January, Brock Lesnar was convinced he needed surgery to deal with a case of diverticulitis – a condition that essentially left a hole in his intestine and put his career as Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight title holder in jeopardy. He might be out a year. Or it might be two. Or it might be forever. Instead, a series of doctor’s visits and tests have revealed what both Lesnar and UFC president Dana White described as a “miracle.” The big guy is healed and ready to return to the Octagon this summer, probably against the winner of the fight between Frank Mir and Shane Carwin in March. “Let’s be clear, I’m still the heavyweight champion,” Lesnar growled, in trademark fashion, on ESPN on Wednesday morning. There couldn’t be better news for the UFC and fans of mixed martial arts. Lesnar isn’t just apparently well again (although really, who knows if there could be a setback or another episode), but his return to

Iron Man's Secret Revealed, It's Not Such A Secret

Iron Man's Secret Revealed, It's Not Such A Secret There are so many superheroes in Hollywood these days that they're tripping over each other's capes, but director John Favreu has a secret weapon that will set the "Iron Man" franchise apart from the masked masses. Or perhaps it's better to think of it a not-so-secret weapon. "The fact that our hero has no secret identity -- that opens up a lot of things for us creatively," says Favreau, whose Marvel Comics character returns to the big screen on May 7. The high-flying franchise from Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures picks up right where the 2008 hit film left off: with billionaire Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) revealing his secret identity to the world in open defiance of every municipal code in Gotham City and Metropolis. It was a bit jolting but Iron Man is the first major Hollywood superhero to soar over Los Angeles and, well, the laws of publicity are different here. Favreau knows about

Heroes Should It Return For Season 5?

Heroes Should It Return For Season 5? This year the show has lost me and it has lost it core viewers. Never like the whole carnival theme of the show, and Peter being such a baby and Sylar not knowing who is he,Dam Your a cold blooded killer. Who really cares about Claire? We all have issues my dear. Oh, Heroes, it's been nice to know you! Despite talk that NBC is considering bringing Heroes back for a fifth season, it's not looking good! Apparently few people wanted to see Hiro battle his brain tumor, Sylar kiss Claire or Samuel try to woo the woman of his past in Monday's episode, "Pass/Fail," which hit a series low in the ratings. The show's ratings had been dropping gradually since the season premiered last September with about 6 million viewers, and there was a noticeable drop when new episodes began airing this year: under 5 million. But Monday's episode completely tanked and drew in fewer than 4 million viewers. That's a drop of about 2 million

Tyrese Gibson Talks Legion and Luke Cage

Interested yet? God sends a “legion” of angels to bring on the Apocalypse. Tyrese plays Kyle Williams, an innocent bystander that stops for directions at the wrong time, at the wrong place. He ends up getting sucked into the madness, and ends up fighting for survival. Tyrese credits having great agents to get him the role in LEGION. “I give my team love all the time,” he said. “They keep their radars out there for projects like this. Once Paul Bettany signed on to a Sony Screen Gems project, it was like, okay, this is like the heavyweight actor that’s classically trained in all of this stuff and coming off of the Da Vinci Code, it’s like, what’s this project that Paul Bettany has signed on to.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Film Coming Soon

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Film Coming Soon If you've read a book in the last year, chances are it was one of Stieg Larsson's Millenium Trilogy , the insanely popular series of Swedish crime novels that has taken the world by storm. Well, the first of the books has been adapted for the screen, and now The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has a new poster to premiere right here. The story, for those of you who don't read, focuses on two characters. Investigative reporter Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) has been convicted of libel and, his career in ruins, accepts an offer from a wealthy recluse to write a family history.

Martin Luther King, Jr Film To Be Made By Dreamworks

Martin Luther King, Jr Film To Be Made By Dreamworks I feel that this film is way over due. With Hollywood coming out with so many bad movies and terrible remakes of older movies and Television shows. It's about time we get something with meaning. DreamWorks Studios announced today it's hired playwright and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Ronald Harwood to write the Martin Luther King, Jr. biopic. Overseeing the film are Mark Sourian and Holly Bario, Co-Presidents of Production for the studio, while, as previously announced, Steven Spielberg, Suzanne de Passe and Madison Jones will produce the film about the renowned civil rights leader. It's the first theatrical motion picture to be authorized by The King Estate to utilize the intellectual property of Dr. King to create the definitive portrait of his life. (Dr. King copyrighted his speeches, books, and famous works during his lifetime.) A native of South Africa, Harwood has long pursued themes surrounding race, conscien

Arnold Schwarzenegger Money Will Stay In California For Films And TV

Arnold Schwarzenegger Money Will Stay In California For Films And TV About $710 million in movie and TV production spending will remain in California this fiscal year because of production incentives passed a year ago, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger boasted Tuesday. The governor said 60 projects have thus far qualified, with room for more. Perhaps not so coincidentally, Schwarzenegger's announcement came shortly after New York Gov. David Paterson earned kudos from film and TV execs for proposing that $420 million a year be set aside so that his state can continue doling out production tax credits through 2014. Schwarzenegger even singled out "Important Things With Demetri Martin," a Comedy Central show that took advantage of incentives by relocating production from New York to California. Of the 60 projects that have qualified thus far, 26 began or completed production, adding 673 filming days in California, Schwarzenegger said. The remaining 34 are slated to begin productio

Chris Hemsworth and Sean Bean Looking For "Ca$h" By:John Meneghetti If you have watched the movie South Central then you know the work of Stephen Milburn Anderson.

And now he is coming back to the scene with the movie " Cash" Starring Chris Hemsworth(soon to play Thor) and Sean Bean(Boromir in The Lord of the Rings and National Treasure) I am very excited about this film, and I really hope it doesn't get lost in the mix. With no release date set just yet,let's hope it is not a straight to DVD film.

Gerard Butler Wants To Be A Machine Gun Preacher

Gerard Butler Wants To Be A Machine Gun Preacher Looks like Butler wants to show the world that he is more then a pretty face and muscle. We are told Butler wants the world to see him as a serious actor and not just eye candy While some actors would capitalize on a box office hit like Law Abiding Citizen by seeking the biggest payday in the marketplace, Gerard Butler is going a different way. He has teamed with director Marc Forster to tell the story of Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing biker tough guy who found God and became a crusader for hundreds of Sudanese children who've been kidnapped and pressed into duty as soldiers. Butler wants to play Childers in Machine Gun Preacher, which Forster will direct from a script he developed with screenwriter Jason Keller.
