The hottie star of That '70s Show and the voice of The Family Guy's Meg Griffin is about to make the transition from the small to big screen in a big way. Posted 04.03.08 by reelz
The actress stars in this month's very buzzed Forgetting Sarah Marshall as the object of Peter Bretter's (Jason Segel) post-breakup affection. She is also currently shooting an adaptation of the popular video game Max Payne in which she will play Mona Sax opposite Mark Wahlberg as Payne.
Reelz.com spoke exclusively with Kunis recently and we got her to dish a bit on the highly-anticipated video game movie. Check out our full Mila Kunis Max Payne interview and then be sure to check out the rest of our exclusive interview with Kunis next week.
Mark Wahlberg is negotiating to star in a live-action adaptation of the videogame Max Payne, about a cop haunted by the loss of his family (is there any other kind?) investigating strange murders and fighting fierce foes. John Moore (Behind Enemy Lines) will direct.
Josh Hartnett and Sam Rockwell will be starring in the adapation of the Don DeLillo novel End Zone about a Texas college football. Hartnett plays the star runningback and Rockwell the school publicist. George Ratliff (Joshua) will direct.

According to Variety, all is not well in the land of Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones.
Actor Ryan Gosling, who was to play the role of grieving father Jack Salmon, dropped out on Friday--after gaining 20 lbs and growing a beard for the movie, which begins shooting today in Pennsylvania. Mark Wahlberg stepped over the weekend to take his place.
Gosling's 11th hour decision is being attributed to 'creative differences.' That does not sound good. Posted 10.22.07 by reelz
We always knew that Brad Pitt secretly wanted to be a Bostonian. And now he will get his chance at the accent that proves to be most actors' Waterloo.
Pitt has just signed to star opposite Mark Wahlberg in The Fighter, a drama about Boston boxer/world lightweight champion "Irish" Mickey Ward. Wahlberg will play Ward, and Pitt will play his half-brother/boxer Dicky Eglund.
Matt Damon was supposed to play Eglund, but ceded the role to Pitt when his schedule became too crowded with other projects. Darren Aronofsky (The Fountain, Pi) will direct.
Just remember this, Mr. Pitt: Not everyone from Boston sounds like a Kennedy. In fact, only Kennedys do. Now good luck, and may the road rise to meet you.

Super-secretive thrill-monger M. Night Shyamalan is at it again. The writer-director is putting together his next movie, The Happening, a thriller about a man (Mark Wahlberg) who tries to save his family when a natural disaster threatens to end the world.
John Leguizamo and Spencer Breslin (brother of Little Miss Sunshine cutie Abigail) have recently joined the cast.
As anyone who watches Entourage knows, Shyamalan is notoriously hush-hush about his projects (neurotic paranoia might be a better description). Thus, not much else is known about the movie--other than it begins filming next month in Philadelphia (of course). Posted 07.18.07 by reelz
Egomaniac and king of the thrillers M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) has just announced plans to have Oscar-nominee Mark Wahlberg star in his upcoming "paranoia thriller" The Happening.
In it, Wahlberg will play a man who takes his "family on the run after an apocalyptic threat to humanity." It is set to start filming in Philadelphia in August.
Twentieth Century Fox is planning a global opening of The Happening on "the scariest day of the summer" - Friday the 13th of June, 2008.
Scary stuff, indeed. Although it can't be scarier than this.

Ok, the phrase "Academy Award Nominee Mark Wahlberg" is gonna take a little getting used to. While not as strange-sounding as "Academy Award-Winning Screenwriter Ben Affleck," it's still something most of us never thought we'd hear. Indeed, Wahlberg's come a long way since we first saw him dancing around in his underpants 15 years ago. Check out our interview with the star of Shooter here. Posted 03.19.07 by reelz
