With 'Star Wars: Episode 7' scheduled to begin filming in January, you would think that casting needs to get underway quickly so that the lengthy rehearsal/pre-production stage can begin. Well, expect 'Star Wars' casting to heat up over the next few weeks and we have our first real leads as to who is in consideration to star. Enter Rachel Hurd-Wood and Alex Pettyfer.
Just as recently as earlier this year, Matt Damon was talking that a return to the 'Bourne' franchise that turned him into an A-list action star was highly unlikely. But, this is Hollywood and sometimes what is completely unlikely one day (like Ben Affleck as Batman), becomes a reality the next. And so, Matt Damon is in negotiations to return for another 'Bourne' film along with 'Bourne Ultimatum' director Paul Greengrass.
'Avengers' director and current Marvel Studios creative head muckity-muck Joss Whedon has a knack for killing off beloved characters. You need to look to further than 'Buffy,' Firefly,' 'Angel' and, of course, 'The Avengers' for evidence. But, as he prepares to shoot 'Avengers 2: Age of Ultron' in a few months, will Whedon take things up a notch and, gulp, kill one of the Avengers?
We've been hearing about 'Ted 2' since...well, since the first 'Ted' became a box-office sensation and made $550 million worldwide. But, since then, we've had precious little in the way of actual updates. Sure, everyone - including star Mark Wahlberg and writer/director Seth MacFarlane - want it to happen, but would it actually happen? MacFarlane took to Twitter and let everyone know that it is happening and exactly when you'll be able to see it.
After 'The Lone Ranger' opened to poor reviews and disappointing box office, Johnny Depp was criticized for his recent acting choices. From 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4' to 'Dark Shadows,' many accused Depp of going through the motions, all-too-happy to cash his paycheck to star in whatever Disney or Tim Burton was asking him to star in, regardless of the quality.
In a related story, Johnny Depp is in final negotiations to return as The Mad Hatter in Disney's 'Alice in Wonderland 2.'
With 'Captain America 2' about to reveal its first footage at Comic-Con 2013, the marketing campaign is heating up. Just earlier this week we got our first look at the film's poster and today, we get a new look at some 'Captain America' concept art, highlighting what looks to be the climactic battle in the film between Cap and his former sidekick, and current nemesis, The Winter Soldier.
When Joss Whedon announced he was adding two new characters to 'Avengers 2' in the brother/sister team of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, fans couldn't help but immediately start speculating who would be cast as the new additions to the team. Previously, we reported that Irish actress Saoirse Ronan was the top choice for Scarlet Witch and now we know who Whedon and Marvel have their eye on to play Quicksilver. And it's a name superhero movie fans will definitely be familiar with.
With 'Iron Man 3' mostly behind us, the next Marvel superhero film to look forward to is 'Thor 2,' which hits theaters this November. Director Alan Taylor ('Game of Thrones') recently spoke out about what he's bringing to the upcoming sequel, and he promised everything that fans want: intense action, high stakes and...big laughs?
Those are the chilling final words scrawled in capital letters on the last page of a diary the late Heath Ledger kept as he was filming 'The Dark Knight,' his last finished movie. Ledger's father, Kim, opened up Ledger's Joker diary publicly for the first time for the upcoming documentary 'Too Young to Die,' giving fans a fascinating glimpse into how the late actor created one of the most memorable movie villains of all-time.
'Transformers 4' has promised a complete reboot for the franchise including all new robots. One classic who will return despite the new direction is the Autobots leader Optimus Prime. But even Prime isn't exempt from the reboot. The main robot character will have a completely new look in the film and director Michael Bay has revealed that new look to the fans.
Just a few months before filming was scheduled to begin, Tom Cruise has abruptly left Warner Bros.' planned remake of the classic '60s TV series 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' But one action-packed remake of an old spy TV show's loss is another's gain. Cruise will instead focus his attention on 'Mission: Impossible 5' which is now gearing up to begin production later this year.
'Fast Five' attempted - and quite successfully I might add - a reboot of sorts for the entire 'Fast and Furious' franchise, turning a series of movies about car racing into one exciting heist film. It was big and brash and sweaty and a complete success. So where do you go from there? 'Fast and Furious 6' attempts to answer that question by adding an -er suffix to all those adjectives above. Bigger, brasher, sweatier.
'Fast and Furious 6' is like 'Fast Five' on nitrous - director Justin Lin hits that proverbial turbo boost to go bigger, faster, stronger - and at times, that is a great thing. But when the NOS runs out, the drag race just turns into a drag.
