Ridley Scott apprently doesn't like superhero movies

Superhero films have been around since superheroes. From the serials of the '40s and '50s (with the first one being CAPTAIN MARVEL - the SHAZAM version - in 1940), to the current explosion of big-budget comic-book blockbusters post-X-MEN that we're living in today. Point is, superhero films have been a fixture on the big-screen from the beginning, and even if their...

The Exorcist director William Friedkin considering True Detective

There have been a lot of True Detective talks ever since the first season finale; casting, locations, storyline; it’s all up in the air still. Interestingly enough still, lost in all that is the fact that the show doesn’t have a director. The show created and written by Nic Pizzolatto had a first season that directed entirely by Cary Joji Fukunaga, and the dude did amazing...

A few months back, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon announced that they would be reviving the series Project Greenlight on the network it was originally born on; HBO. Project Greenlight was a contest to help a passionate artist direct a film, who otherwise might have never had the chance to do so.

C'mon Hollywood: Get back to the gore, Peter Jackson!

Sticking closely to shoe-string budgeted films and appropriately titled "splatstick" horror comedies, Peter Jackson wasn't exactly the biggest name being passed around the film community back in the day. It wasn't until he received recognition for his work on HEAVENLY CREATURES that he was able to break away from the cult director status he associated himself with and before long,...

C'mon, Hollywood: Don't let The Expendabelles become a generic chick flick!

Not too long ago, there was an announcement of an all female version of THE EXPENDABLES hitting theaters, called THE EXPENDABELLES , which I personally thought sounded supremely awesome. While we've gotten films like UNDERWORLD , RESIDENT EVIL and KILL BILL featuring women kicking ass and taking names, this would be the first time a movie had so many gals doing that at the same...

C'mon, Hollywood: Let's give Robert De Niro some better material!

With GRUDGE MATCH being released and met with such lukewarm reception, it only reminds me that the once great Robert De Niro hasn't had the hottest track record of late. Now, every actor has his or her string of substandard films, but the amount that has plagued him lately is straight up unfortunate. There was a time when one thought of De Niro, films like CASINO , GOODFELLAS and...

C'mon, Hollywood: Why exactly did Oldboy bomb?

Remakes are always controversial no matter who's attached to the project, the number of years it's been since the original was released, how good the first one was, etc. With directors ranging from Justin Lin to Steven Spielberg , the OLDBOY remake eventually became Spike Lee's responsibility and after playing a very long waiting game, the film has finally come and hit theaters with...

The film will take place in the drug world and focus on the titular subs that carry narcotics from South America to the U.S. The film was written by David Guggenheim (SAFE HOUSE) and Simon Kinberg . After Scott's death it has remained in limbo until this...

Renee Zellweger will make her directorial debut with 4 1/2 minutes, costarring Johnny Knoxville

More often than not, actors do not make very good directors. There are exceptions of course: Clint Eastwood, Ron Howard, Jon Favreau, Ben Affleck, and George Clooney, just to name a few. Renee Zellweger was never someone I even thought would give it a shot behind the camera. Zellweger will make her directorial debut with the movie 4 1/2 MINUTES. Zellweger will star in the film as...
