Len Wiseman to direct supernatural military thriller Black Chapter

Len Wiseman may have gained some notoriety for directing LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD and TOTAL RECALL, but he continues to land plum projects in Hollywood. Visually, he is very talented but his scripts often leave something to be desired. His next project looks to be the paranormal action thriller BLACK CHAPTER which will team him with a screenwriter of some merit. According to The...

Len Wiseman leaves The Mummy reboot

Any of you looking forward to THE MUMMY reboot? If you were looking forward to Len Wisemen directing it then you can kiss that pairing good-bye. Wiseman has dropped out of the reboot due to scheduling issues. Producers Sean Daniels, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are said to be looking for a replacement and fast. Jon Spaihts (PROMETHEUS) wrote the script which not only...

Review: Live Free or Die Hard (2007)

NOTE: With A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD opening today (read Chris Bumbray's review here ), we thought the past four days were the ideal time to revisit the older films from the franchise, so we hope that you enjoyed that trip down memory lane. My review of the latest entry in the franchise will be on the site on Friday. PLOT : When a now grizzled John McClane is asked to pick up...

Director Len Wiseman's remake of The Mummy to be a modern-day "epic horror film"

Recently, it was announced that director Len Wiseman would be taking on Universal's franchise for THE MUMMY, but other than that we knew very little.  Initially called a reboot, it now seems to be more of a re-imagining.  Speaking to MovieWeb, Wiseman had this to say about the new take on the long-running franchise and if there was any hesitation from the studio in hiring him...

Savages arrives on Blu-ray/DVD November 13th, while Total Recall hits on December 18th

Today I have two sets of release dates and disc details for two films that happen to share two things in common: they both were released this past summer, and both of them failed to make much of a dent in the box office.  At all.  Certainly not enough to reward its heavy price tag in TOTAL RECALL 's case.  But perhaps they'll find a wider audience on Blu-ray/DVD release,...

Len Wiseman is wrapping up a deal to helm The Mummy

Moving on from the not as awesome as the original TOTAL RECALL, Len Wiseman is locking down a deal to direct an updated version of THE MUMMY. Jon Spaihts (PROMETHEUS) will be the one to write the script, but Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci pitched the project to Wiseman. They are looking to take the classic character to a scarier place than it was originally intended. Instead of...

Total Recall is real: Scientists successfully implant memories in mice!

TOTAL RECALL is generally remembered for the three-breated hooker, Arnold Schwarzenegger fighting Sharon Stone, blue skies on Mars, and the not so great remake starring Colin Farrell. What it is generally not remembered for is the scientific accuracy of the memory technology at the story's core. Looks like that last one just became more legitimate. According to Blastr , Case Western...

New featurette for Total Recall showcases an awesome-looking hover car chase

The Len Wiseman directed remake of the Schwarzenegger classic, TOTAL RECALL, is heading to theaters in just a few weeks and today we have a closer look at one of the big action pieces in the film; the hover car chase.  Now, we've seen hover cars on film before (I always think of THE FIFTH ELEMENT or BLADE RUNNER), but I have to say that this featurette genuinely impressed me with the...

Comic Con 2012: Interview with Total Recall stars Beckinsale, Biel, Cranston & director Len Wiseman

While I stepped out of the Sony press line at Comic Con to chat with Matt Damon, my good buddy Jason Adams filled in for a bit. Between the two of us we spoke to two of the stars of TOTAL RECALL along with the filmís director. Yes, it was pretty absurdly cool to chat with Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale and Len Wiseman. To be honest, Iím very curious to see how differently the film is...
