Fans of the FOX TV show 24 have been anxiously awaiting a big-screen version of the popular series since it ended in May of 2010.
The project seemed doomed in January 2011 when 20th Century Fox rejected the movie script. However, progress really started moving forward in December when a screenwriter was hired to do some rewrites, leading Kiefer Sutherland to reveal this January that shooting would commence in April. Antoine Fuqua (Brooklyn's Finest, Shooter) was in talks to direct.
However, it looks like shooting will not start this year after all. In fact, it's possible a 24 movie may not happen at all. what happened now? >> Posted 03.14.12 by Ryan
Those who were hoping for a Face/Off reunion for Nicolas Cage and John Travolta had their hopes dashed when Cage dropped out of the wilderness action thriller Shrapnel in July, leaving Travolta and director John McTiernan (Die Hard, Predator) to find a replacement. Months later, McTiernan is out, the movie has a new title and Cage is being replaced by... Robert De Niro?
It's true. Deadline reports that De Niro is in for Cage, playing an American military veteran who is now living in a cabin in the woods. Enter Travolta as a friendly European tourist, who is a former Serbian soldier bent on revenge (Travolta finally gets to show off his Serbian accent). Once the truth is discovered, a one-on-one battle ensues. "We’ve never seen these two great actors on screen together before, and we’re excited to see what comes of the combination," said producer Avi Lerner (Drive Angry, The Expendables). more cast members for Bond 23, Stallone Gets in The Tomb >> Posted 10.31.11 by Ryan
With director Matthew Vaughn's X-Men franchise prequel, X-Men: First Class, opening in theaters in just over a week, it appears as if Fox is finally getting around to looking for a replacement for Darren Aronofsky as director of the studio's next Marvel Comics adaptation, The Wolverine, the planned stand-alone sequel to 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. In the wake of Aronofsky's departure—the Academy Award-nominated director didn't want to spend an entire year away from his family filming the movie overseas—David Slade (Twilight Saga: Eclipse), who had been in discussions with Fox before Aronofsky was hired, was rumored to be the top candidate to take the helm until he announced that he has had "no discussions" with Fox about the movie. Speculation then turned to Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code), who is a fan of the character, but he recently revealed his intention to make his sci-fi passion project, Mute, the next movie he directs. Now, Variety has revealed that Fox has put together a short list of eight potential directors to bring the feral mutant back to the big screen. who is on the list? >> Posted 05.26.11 by BrentJS
