Pretty soon, Hollywood is going to run out of moments to use for movies from late President Richard Nixon's life, but not yet.
Only three years removed from 2008's Academy Award–nominated Frost/Nixon, which focused on a series of post-Watergate television interviews Nixon gave to British TV personality David Frost, the latest project showcases Nixon's infamous White House meeting with Elvis Presley. Appropriately titled Elvis & Nixon, the movie was co-written by actor Cary Elwes, who will also make his directorial debut. Eric Bana (Funny People, Hulk) is set to play Elvis, while Danny Huston (Clash of the Titans, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) will play Nixon.
ComingSoon reports that international rights have already been sold for Elvis & Nixon, which should start lensing soon in Shreveport, Louisiana, and Los Angeles. owen gets Recall; Jake Abel falls for an alien spirit >> Posted 11.10.11 by Ryan
Director Martin Campbell's (Casino Royale) latest film, Edge of Darkness, marks the return of Mel Gibson as a leading man, his first such performance since M. Night Shyamalan's Signs in 2002.
Based on Campbell's BBC mini-series of the same name, Darkness tells the story of veteran policeman Thomas Craven (Gibson), who obsessively investigates the shooting death of his daughter on their front steps. In the process, he uncovers far more than he bargained for.
Edge of Darkness was written for the screen by Academy Award-winner William Monahan (The Departed) and also stars Ray Winstone and Danny Huston. Posted 10.16.09 by BrentJS
Danny Huston has been very busy lately. The X-Men Origins: Wolverine actor, fresh from completing his work as Poseidon in Clash of the Titans, has joined the cast of director Ridley Scott's yet-to-be-titled Robin Hood. Huston will play King Richard, otherwise known as Richard the Lionheart.
While King Richard is often depicted as good in movies about the Robin Hood myth, Scott's version may make the character more historically accurate. Considering King Richard was more interested in the Crusades than he was being King of England, it will be interesting to see how Scott decides to present him. Luckily for Scott, Huston has made a habit of playing both villain and hero.
Scott's Robin Hood movie opens May 14, 2010. Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett star as Robin Hood and Maid Marion, respectively. Posted 07.14.09 by Ryan
Fans of Sam Worthington have already seen two photos of the actor in full costume as Perseus from the Clash of the Titans shoot, and now a photo of Worthington's love interest, Io (Gemma Arterton), have surfaced on an Arterton fansite.
Arterton's character of Io is a new addition for the remake/reboot, and a role Arterton previously described as "the coolest." Arterton also revealed that this version of Clash of the Titans will delve more into the personal life of Perseus than the 1981 original.
Clash of the Titans opens March 26, 2010, and stars Liam Neeson as Zeus, Ralph Fiennes as Hades, and Danny Huston as Poseidon, with direction from Louis Leterrier. Posted 06.18.09 by Ryan
With shooting underway for director Louis Letterier's Clash of the Titans remake, the first set photos from the Spanish Canary Islands location have surfaced online. Sam Worthington took some time out to discuss his role as Perseus to discuss the movie:
We've been filming it for two weeks now and I'm more bruised and battered than I was on Terminator [Salvation]. We've taken on Medusa, we've taken on the witches, and then we just kill everything else. It's a bit more brutal. There's no togas, or there's very little togas. I said, "I'm not wearing a toga. Bugger that!" You can't look manly in a toga, I'm sorry. I couldn't do it. Louis is a very good action director, so it's going to be exciting and big, and my job is to bring the heart.
Worthington leads a growing star-filled cast, with recent additions Danny Huston as Poseidon, Liam Neeson as Zeus, and Ralph Fiennes as Hades. Posted 05.11.09 by Ryan

Marvel has revealed three new photos for X-Men Origins: Wolverine, including pics of William Stryker (Danny Huston, Gambit (Taylor Kitsch), and Agent Zero (Daniel Henney).
With a new trailer already released, these photos plus the ones of Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds), Silver Fox (Lynn Collins), Wraith (Will. I. Am.), Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber), and Wolverine himself (Hugh Jackman), may be all we get for a while. Posted 03.13.09 by Ryan
The cast of the upcoming Wolverine prequel (officially -- and ponerously -- titled X-Men Origins: Wolverine) appears to be filling out quite nicely. In addition to Hugh Jackman reprising his signature role and Liev Schreiber playing Wolverine nemesis Sabretooth, JoBlo.com is reporting that it appears 30 Days of Night villain Danny Huston has been cast as young William Stryker, the renegade army colonel responsible for the gruesome experiments that gave Wolvie his adamantium skeleton.
We loved Huston in 30 Days of Night. Then again, most of his dialogue in that flick consisted of high-pitched shreaks and the occasional command, spoken in his bizarre vampire language, so we're not entirely sure what to expect.
