F. Gary Gray Wants To Direct 'Saints Row'

Director F. Gary Gray has been leaping around genres of late, and is in the midst of finishing Men In Black: International . He's now targeting a video game adaptation as a future project, looking to make a film based on the successful Saints Row series. Created by Deep Silver Volition, Row spans four installments and has become one of the top selling video game franchises of all time. It tells the story of the rise of the Third Street Saints as they battle rival gangs in an attempt to conquer the fictional cities of Stilwater and Steelport. Gray's Fenix Studios company has Greg Russo (who is at work on another game adaptation, the latest Mortal Kombat reboot for Warners) ready to write the script for the movie. It's early days, but it could end up as Gray's next film. He's also attached to produce a film based on lesser known game title Echo, with John Wick veteran Derek Kolstad at work on that one. As for Men In Black: International, the latest in the co

Chris Hemsworth In Talks To Join Men in Black Spinoff Film

THR is reporting F. Gary Gray , who directed last year's ' Fate of the Furious ,' is in negotiations to helm the movie. Chris Hemsworth is in early negotiations to star in Sony’s self-styled spinoff of the sci-fi action-comedy franchise Men in Black . F. Gary Gray, who directed last year's Fate of the Furious, is due to helm the movie, which has a script by Iron Man writers Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The pic is slated for release on June 14, 2019. Akin to how Jurassic World revived the Jurassic Park film series, Sony’s reboot is to feature new characters rather than Agents K and J, portrayed by Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith , respectively, and build on the contemporary sci-fi world in which they operated. Sources say that the studio is hoping to round out a diverse ensemble cast and may be potentially eyeing the leads to be white male, a female of color and an older man. The story will be a global adventure. Smith and Jones powered the first Men in Blac

Movie Review: #FateoftheFurious

Fate of the Furious delivers more stunts and more action but seemingly less of everything else. Review by Matt Cummings If a film can (or even should) be measured by the amount of stunts, explosions, and cheesy dialogue it contains, Fate of the Furious would be film of the year. Luckily, we don't ascribe to such standards, as we actually like a little story with our beat downs (see John Wick: Chapter 2 . Filled with more than enough stunts, explosions, and one-note dialogue to fill its extended runtime, it also does less of everything else, spinning and careening its way to obsolescence. Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) is enjoying his honeymoon with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) when he comes face to face with the techie Cipher (Charlize Theron), who makes two demands: work for me to destroy your friends, or watch another friend die. His teammates, including Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), Roman (Tyrese Gibson), and Tej (Ludacris) are shocked to see Dom not only turn but

Charlize Theron Joins Fast 8

Though she had only been in talks up to this point, waiting to see a finished script, Charlize Theron has officially signed on to play the big bad going up against Vin Diesel's Dom Toretto in Fast 8 . Theron will actually be playing in the new Fast & Furious entry, and rumors had pinned her as a potential new member of the nasty Shaw family (previous siblings including Luke Evans ' Owen and Jason Statham's Deckard). But it sounds like she's just going to be a powerful, dangerous woman who has great influence in the criminal underworld. It would be fun to see the new movie shot almost completely from her point of view, a la Mad Max: Fury Road, but that probably won't work in terms of the Fast films' usual focus. Diesel is back of course alongside Statham, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and the rest of the current cast, and some filming has already commenced, though largely limited to second unit stunt work so far. The film, directed

#StraightOuttaCompton Opens Huge

Universal revised its opening figure up as the musical biopic grabbed a big slice of the audience.

Universal’s R-rated Compton, the biopic about the groundbreaking hip-hop group N.W.A, produced for just $29 million, posted a best-ever opening for its director F. Gary Gray.
