  • MMA fighter turned action star Gina Carano ("Haywire") is in talks to join the sixth "Fast and the Furious" movie. Carano will star alongside Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock as a member of Johnson's special Diplomatic Security team. "Fast 6" moves the action and most of the cast of "Fast Five" to the UK for some fast and furious driving. Justin Lin is returning to direct both this sequel and the next one, which will take place in Germany.

  • "Top Gun 2" is moving forward in a hurry. According to Paramount President Adam Goodman, the sequel will reunite Tom Cruise, director Tony Scott ("Man on Fire", "Crimson Tide") and producer Jerry Bruckheimer : "We’ll likely make a Top Gun sequel with Tom Cruise first. Jerry Bruckheimer would produce, with Tony Scott returning to direct. All parties are moving ahead. We’ve hired Peter Craig ("The Town") to write the script." Also, it seems that Paramount is in a rush to film "Top Gun 2" before "Mission: Impossible 5". And if you just can't wait to see Maverick back in action, the original "Top Gun" will be re-released in 3D sometime this year.

  • Darren Aronofsky's hugely ambitious adaptation of Noah's biblical tale is beginning to take shape. Russel Crowe has been confirmed to star as Noah. Also, Saoirse Ronan and Jennifer Connelly have recently joined the cast. The movie is said to have a budget of around $125M and will aim for a PG-13 rating. Aronofsky wrote the screenplay alongside Ari Handel, and John Logan ("Gladiator", "Hugo") and is set for release on March 28, 2014. Here is a fragment of an official press release which provides more details about the movie :
    "NOAH is a close adaptation of the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark. In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save creation from the coming flood. The screenplay was written by Aronofsky and Ari Handel and revised by Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter John Logan (GLADIATOR, HUGO).

    Scott Franklin and Aronofsky of Protozoa Pictures, along with Mary Parent of Disruption Entertainment, will produce the film. The film will be executive produced by Ari Handel (BLACK SWAN), Arnon Milchan of New Regency and Chris Brigham (INCEPTION, ARGO).

    The movie will begin shooting this July in Iceland and New York."

  • "Transformers 4" will be written by Ehren Kruger who also penned the scripts for the last two "Transformers" movies. This is not exactly positive news for those hoping for an improvement in the franchise. The fourth entry will be a reboot, meaning that the cast of the previous movies will not return, including Shia LaBeouf. It is also rumored that the new sequel will focus more on the robots and less on the humans, which hopefully means less awkward humor. Michael Bay will return to direct. The targeted release date is June 29, 2014

  • Mel Gibson and Michelle Williams are in talks to join the cast of "Machete Kills", the sequel to Robert Rodriguez's B-style exploitation flick. While Gibson is pretty much a sure thing, Michelle Williams isn't and neither is Rodriguez, who is still split between directing this sequel or "Sin City 2". Danny Trejo will return in the title role of Machete, the former Mexican Federale, who this time around is recruited by the U.S. Government and tasked with tracking an arms dealer through Mexico before he can launch a rocket attack.

  • Two weeks ago I was writing that MGM is preparing to produce a remake of Brian De Palma's "Carrie", which was based on a Stephen King novel. Kimberly Peirce ("Boys Don’t Cry") is onboard to direct, Chloe Moretz will star in the lead role and Julianne Moore is in talks to play Carrie's crazy mother. This week, Roger Birnbaum, CEO of MGM, let it slip that the new "Carrie" remake will be in part a found-footage movie. It remains to be seen just how much of it will be found footage and how that will mesh with the claims that this remake will be more faithful to the novel.

Official Synopsis: The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal… Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way….

Official Synopsis : The macabre and lurid tales of Edgar Allan Poe are vividly brought to life - and death - in this stylish, gothic thriller starring John Cusack as the infamous author. When a madman begins committing horrific murders inspired by Poe's darkest works, a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans) joins forces with Poe in a quest to get inside the killer's mind in order to stop him from making every one of Poe's brutal stories a blood chilling reality. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues, which escalates when Poe's love (Alice Eve) becomes the next target. Intrepid Pictures' The Raven also stars Brendan Gleeson and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.

Official Synopsis : A second-rate cage fighter on the mixed martial arts circuit, Luke Wright lives a numbing life of routine beatings and chump change...until the day he blows a rigged fight. Wanting to make an example of him, the Russian Mafia murders his family and banishes him from his life forever, leaving Luke to wander the streets of New York destitute, haunted by guilt, and tormented by the knowledge that he will always be watched, and anyone he develops a relationship with will also be killed. But when he witnesses a frightened twelve-year-old Chinese girl, Mei, being pursued by the same gangsters who killed his wife, Luke impulsively jumps to action...and straight into the heart of a deadly high-stakes war.

Official Synopsis : The director and writer/star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall reteam for the irreverent comedy The Five-Year Engagement. Beginning where most romantic comedies end, the new film from director Nicholas Stoller, producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) and Rodney Rothman (Get Him to the Greek) looks at what happens when an engaged couple, Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, keeps getting tripped up on the long walk down the aisle.

Official Synopsis : In The Pirates! Band of Misfits, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain - a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they battle a diabolical queen (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a haplessly smitten young scientist (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!

Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish.

  • Guy Pearce is in talks to star in "Iron Man 3". The sequel's storyline is said to involve nanotechnology and Pearce, should he accept the part, will be playing geneticist Aldrich Killian, who creates some kind of nanobot virus and sells it to terrorists in an attempt to convince the government to re-fund his research. Ben Kingsley is also in talks to play an unknown villain in "Iron Man 3". Shane Black ("Leathal Weapon" writer, "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang") is the writer/director this time around and most of the cast from the previous movies will return.


  • "The Wolverine", an origin story reboot/sequel of the well-known X-Men character and the 2009 film "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", has finally found a filming location : Australia. The story is said to take place in Japan and the initial plan was to film in Japan, but last year's catastrophic earthquake and tsunami indefinitely delayed production until now. Directed by James Mangold ("Identity", "3:10 to Yuma ") and starring Hugh Jackman, the movie will begin filming later this year and is scheduled for a July 26, 2013 release date.

  • It's been a while since any news regarding "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D" surfaced, but fans might be glad to know that the movie has finally received a release date : October 26, 2012. Does it surprise anyone that they decided to release it on Halloween ? Anyway, there's also a very detailed press release that might interest the fans, so here it is :
    "SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D will be released wide October 26, 2012 in time for Halloween. The announcement was made today by Tom Ortenberg, CEO of Open Road Films and producers Samuel Hadida and Don Carmody.

    Based on the groundbreaking video game franchise, SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D is the sequel to the hit film SILENT HILL, which opened to number one at the U.S. box office and took in nearly $100 million at the worldwide box office. Featuring an unparalleled horror experience, Konami’s Silent Hill franchise has captivated fans for more than a decade and has spawned a hit comic book series, graphic novels, collectibleaction figures and numerous soundtracks from rock bands.

    Directed by Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane, Deathwatch), original cast members Sean Bean (HBO’s Game Of Thrones, Lord Of The Rings), Deborah Kara Unger (The Game, 88 minutes, The Samaritan) and Radha Mitchell (Man On Fire, The Crazies, upcoming The Frozen Ground) return in SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D, starring along with rising stars Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins, upcoming The Great Gatsby, No One Lives) and Kit Harington (HBO’s Game Of Thrones) as well as Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix, Disturbia, NBC’s Chuck) and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, The Artist).

    In SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father (Bean) have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. On the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by horrificnightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her forever."
  • Director David O. Russel ("The Fighter", "Three Kings") has signed on to direct a biopic of 21-year Rhode Island mayor Buddy Cianci, a public figure who became famous for fighting corruption, only to end up in prison on racketeering charges. Russel's movie will be based on Cianci’s autobiography called "Politics and Pasta: How I Prosecuted Mobsters, Rebuilt a Dying City, Dined with Sinatra, Spent Five Years in a Federally Funded Gated Community, and Lived to Tell the Tale".

  • More details surface about the Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher. Producer Mark Hulme revealed the following : "Since our film covers the early years of Apple, when Jobs was in his 20′s, we needed an actor who could carry not only the youthfulness of Jobs at the time but also the psychological complexity. Because of that, and Ashton’s physical similarities to Jobs, he’s perfect for our film… When Ashton read the script he was immediately attracted to the project. He is a Steve Jobs and Apple fan, and is technologically savvy, as well, so he recognized the historical importance of Steve Jobs and the potential of the project. He is very excited to have the role." And, if you're not exactly sure about this movie, you'll be glad to find out that there's another Steve Jobs biopic in the works, based on the officially authorized biography, "Steve Jobs". This parallel biopic will be penned by Aaron Sorkin ("The Social Network", "Moneyball"). I personally think a clash between two biopics is rather stupid and counterproductive in terms of box-office, because that's the only thing studios really care about. That being said, if I were to choose between the two, I'd rather see Aaron Sorkin's version.

  • Charlize Theron is set to star in a sci-fi actioner called "Agent 13". The movie will probably be directed by Rupert Wyatt ("Rise of the Planet of the Apes"), but his involvement in the movie is not entirely certain, particularly since he'll be busy directing at least two more sequels to the 2011 Apes reboot/prequel.

  • "Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For" is moving forward. In just two weeks the sequel has managed to secure financing, schedule filming for this summer and hire Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson to return in their previous roles. Frank Miller promises an even more impressive sequel : "“The first Sin City knocked out audiences who had never seen anything like it before. Robert Rodriguez and I are going to shake things up and deliver a ferocious film experience that is going to go even further than the first."
