Do you like John McTiernan's throw pillows? Well do you?!
John McTiernan, the director of Die Hard and Predator, has signed on to Shrapnel, what will be his first film since 2003. The story is about two war veterans who hunt each other in a lethal game of cat and mouse. Evan Daugherty's action-thriller script was on the 2008 Blacklist, and that's even without a warrior alien as part of the cat and mouse plotline.
It'll be nice to see McTiernan back behind the camera, even though his last few films have been way less than Die Hard-y. The director has been busy getting into sh*t with the government over the infamous Anthony Pellicano wiretapping scandal of 2006. His experience is a testament to why you never bug your wife's phone. Or your best friend's wife's phone. Even if her come-hither stares say, "Bug my phone." (Variety)
New footage from Jackass 3D starring Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, and Somewhere's Chris Pontius is now available for your cringing pleasure. All you need to do to see it is watch this new Weezer video from their Hurley album. C'mon, do it! You can watch it on 'MUTE' if you prefer after the jump.
Will Ferrell's upcoming film, Casa de mi padre, has unveiled its secret weapon: Mexicans! Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, both natives of Mexico, have joined the cast of the Spanish language film which producers say will be shot in the style of an “overly dramatic telenovela.”
Considering Bernal was in Y tu mamá tambié and Luna was in Milk, the odds of the film having a homoerotic scene just went through the roof. Couple that with middle-America's current love of all things Mexican, and you've got yourself a guaranteed hit on your hands. (Collider)

FX dropped a testosterone-fueled teaser for their new series "Lights Out." This footage already has me amped up and the show doesn't even premiere until January. How am I supposed to expend all my energy now? Huh?! No you tell me!
The show stars Holt McCallany as Patrick Leary, a former heavyweight champ facing various difficulties in his life outside the ring. We've seen the whole broken down boxer thing before, but I have no doubt FX will deliver a fresh take on the premise. Or I'll fight them.
Check out the teaser after the jump…
Devils and demons have possessed the silver screen in many formats, from comedies to cartoons, CGI depictions, psychological thrillers, and fantasy worlds. Yet the most bad-ass, ripsnorting, fire breathing incarnations that we remember are the ones that send chills down our spines. With Devil taking over theaters Friday, I thought I'd compile a list of the 12 most bad-ass Devils in movies. Nothing is better than witnessing your favorite actor playing the ultimate screen villain of old Beelzebub himself. Hail Satan!
Al Pacino as John Milton – The Devil's Advocate
While the movie is just a silly combination of John Grisham novels meets the production designer of Rosemary’s Baby, there's plenty of hot and steamy sex with Connie Nelson and Charlize Theron. Plus Al Pacino plays the devil, so do I really need to say anything more?
J.J. Abrams is going out with another show. He has partnered up with the younger NoBro, Jonathan, to shop a new crime show around to the networks. With names like J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan attached, and work like "Lost," Dark Knight, and Inception under their collective belt, I'd think it's only a matter of time before this gets picked up. Especially if Joaquin Phoenix can sell footage of the guitarist from Spacehog pooping on him. They're just giving development deals away out there in California!! (EW)
Malin Akerman has agreed to move to the desert with Ethan Hawke. In The Numbers Station, Hawke plays a CIA agent protecting Akerman in a desert safehouse. Naturally, the bad guys show up just as Hawke is drafting his letter to Penthouse and the two are forced to fight back. Because that always happens to witnesses in protective custody, no matter how well-hidden they may be. It's Van Damme's Law of Averages. (Variety)
"Battlestar Galactica" fans should be happy about this. Edward James Olmos isn’t ready to let William Adama go. The creators of the TV series are sticking with prequels but he’s got a plan to see Commander Adama again.
“If they don’t, I am,” Olmos said in a conference call today. “I’m going to go there. I’m going to go there in a graphic novel. Pretty soon I hope. I don't know. It just depends on whether people can get behind it and understand it for what it is. I think people will.”

Kacey Barnfield is another hot kettle from the Union Jack, who will be showing up in not just one but two classically bad horror sequels this month, Lake Placid 3 and Resident Evil: Afterlife. This, for me, doesn't matter just as long as I get to have my personal tea time with her soon.
A word from Kacey: "I love playing her, she's quite a selfish person."

Bring it on, witches.
Jeremy Renner recently spoke to Norwegian site Dagsavisen in loud, deliberate speech patterns to explain that he might work for breadcrumbs in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. He also stated that original Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Noomi Rapace, may play his sister and fellow witch hunter for director Tommy Wirkola and producers Adam McKay and Will Ferrell.
There's no official press release yet, so don't consider this a lock. It's about time Renner returned to comedy. He showed such promise in National Lampoon's Senior Trip. (Twitch)
"Chuck" makes its return September 20, but we can give you hints about what’s happening in the episode airing October 25. They’re six episodes into the fourth season and we caught up with Zachary Levi while was on a break doing some PR for his Disney animated film, Tangled.
Season three ended with Chuck coming clean to Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) about his spy career, and resigning from the CIA. The fact that there’s a season four means there must be more spying and more secrets, but they’re not jumping the shark.

The print campaign for "Dexter" has always been eye-grabbing and awesome, and the new poster art for season five does not disappoint either. We already reported that the new season will follow in the footsteps of The Karate Kid 2, Halloween 2, and the Back To The Future sequels by picking up right where the action ended last season. Looks like this poster is doing the same. So much for spoiler warnings. This baby will soon be seen on billboards, bus stops, subway platforms, baseball stadiums, tramp stamps, magazines, banner ads, and the lunchboxes of the criminally insane.
Captain America solicits a prostitute in the English countryside.
New photos from Captain America: The First Avenger have hit the internet, giving a rare glimpse into the much anticipated film. The photos, which were recently shot in London, show the iconic character riding on a World War II era motorcycle. Although Chris Evans has been cast in the role of Cap, his stunt man was driving at the time the photos were taken.
I know a lot of people will be excited for these pictures, but to be honest, the costume looks kind of lame. But it's far too early to make a solid judgment. After all, I thought the initial photos of costumes from Batman and Robin were lame too, and look how that turned out. (Daily Mail via Latino Review)

Good news for people who like giant bouncing boobs! Christina Hendricks' wonderful breasts are joining the cast of Drive. The addition of Hendricks' chest rounds out an all-cast including Ryan Gosling, Chesty Laroo, Bryan Cranston, Tits McGee and Albert Brooks.
The film follows the exploits of a stunt driver who breasts as a getaway driver that boobs mammaries. The film is expected to hit theaters tits bazongas. Boobs. (Collider)

Ron Howard might be biting off more than he can chew. The best ginger director working in the business today is teaming up with screenwriter Akiva Goldsman to adapt Stephen King's beloved novel series The Dark Tower into a feature film and television series. He's going to direct everything himself, battle all the haters who say it can't be done, and stave off a nervous breakdown in the process. Ronnie, you be crazy! Deadline has the deets:
The plan is to start with the feature film, and then create a bridge to the second feature with a season of TV episodes. That means the feature cast—and the big star who’ll play Deschain—also has to appear in the TV series before returning to the second film. After that sequel is done, the TV series picks up again, this time focusing on Deschain as a young gunslinger. Those storylines will be informed by a prequel comic book series that King was heavily involved in plotting. The third film would pick up the mature Deshain as he completes his journey. They will benefit from being able to use the same sets cast and crew for the movie and TV, which could help contain costs on what will be a financially ambitious undertaking.
Peter Jackson is sh*tting in his britches right now. I remember when his back-to-back-to-back Lord of the Rings Trilogy was an unprecedented cinematic feat. If Howard's plan comes together it'll put the whole thing to shame. Thanks Jackson, but we don't need your contributions to film anymore. Ronnie's got the medium on lockdown.
The newest trailer for Monsters finally gives us a glimpse of the bad CGI tentacle monsters. Wow. These things have become far more scary than that time that Fred Savage and Howie Mandel fought them. Now I understand what all the fuss is about! Check out these glowing reviews the film has received so far:
"Utterly unique and original." – IGN
"Awesome. The best giant monster movie I've seen in years." – AICN
"Feel good movie of the year." – Japanese Tentacle Rape Fetishist Quarterly
Monsters opens in theaters on October 29th and On-Demand September 24th. Honestly, I can't wait.
Check out the expanded trailer after the jump…
Today we have pics of January Jones as Emma Frost enjoying cantaloupe on the set of Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class. I don't remember the fruit being a huge part of Frost's character in the comics, but maybe Vaughn has taken some artistic liberities. Wookie was also quick to point out that Jones is dressed like Dolph Lundgren's girlfriend in Rocky 4. If there was ever a movie to look to for inspirational costume ideas, it's Rocky 4. My question is, when do we see January in this?
Start shooting those scenes IMMEDIATELY, Vaughn.

You want Bilbo Baggins, Freeman wants a Kit-Kat.
People are talking about The Hobbit again. Yesterday, The Sun reported that New Line and MGM were doing everything short of offering up hookers to land Martin Freeman (The British "The Office") for the role of Bilbo Baggins. We obviously dismissed it because The Sun has as much clout as Highlights Magazine, but now Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the rumors are true. TRUE!
It was at first thought that Freeman declined the offer to star in the inevitable blockbuster due to his committment to the BBC series "Sherlock." Well someone must have screamed some sense in his face because the studios are now working out a deal that would allow him to appear in both projects. If they land the actor, all they'll need to worry about next is money and a director. Those kind of major factors usually fall into place last minute though. Take it from MGM, the studio without a bush to piss in or a lion's den to throw it out of.
As any self-respecting stalker of Helen Mirren can tell you, Hollywood's sexiest old lady has teamed up with Bruce Willis for the upcoming action-thriller type movie, Red. But what they might not know unless they have a Google Alert set up for "hot geriatric ass" is that an excerpt from the film was just released. Luckily, I do, and I'm more than willing to keep you posted on such matters.
In the clip, Mirren and Willis discuss life after retirement. Of course, the pair are retired spies, which makes it a much more interesting conversation than it would be if they had been insurance salesmen, postal employees, etc.
Keep in mind I'm stealing this synopsis from Collider since I can't get the damn video to load on my connection. Up yours, Iola, Kansas public library.

The veil has been lifted on Aziz Ansari and Danny McBride's super-secret comedy project. Not 30 Minutes Or Less. We already know about that one. I'm talking about their other comedy project. The comedians are teaming up again for Olympic-Size A**hole. Written by Ansari and Harris Wittels, it's a revenge flick that follows McBride and Ansari as they set out to destroy an Olympic athlete that banged their girlfriends.
The title, Olympic-Size A**hole, may change as it could easily be mistaken for a Lindsay Lohan biopic. (MTV)
Melinda Clarke is one actress you may know as Jerry Seinfeld's girl on the famous 'Muffin Tops' episode. Since then Melinda has made a name for herself playing deadly courgarish women on "The O.C." and "CSI," and this week she'll be continuing down the sexy/deadly path of television with the premiere of "Nikita."
A word from Melinda: "I'm getting a lot of roles as women who are very powerful. I think that's a reflection of me as a person."
I don't think "O.C." fans would have a problem calling your character a bitch. Not quite the reflection she's looking for, I'm sure.

Joel McHale is in final talks to star opposite Jessica Alba in Robert Rodriguez's Spy Kids 4. In the sequel, Alba would play a retired spy married to McHale, a spy-hunting reporter. When a nefarious villain returns on the scene, Alba is pulled back into the business. And she takes her stepkids along for the ride.
No word yet on the youngsters that will carry the picture, but if I were the little boy I'd get a jump on the spying by placing webcams in Alba's dressing room. I work method. (Variety)

Reynolds will do your damn scene in a minute.
Robert Schwentke has officially signed on to tell Ryan Reynolds how to hold his gun in R.I.P.D. The director is taking advantage of the buzz he's generated with the upcoming Red starring Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren. He's decided to try the whole action movie thing with a cast that's currently ineligable for a AARP discount.
Reynolds will get right into the role of police officer for the dead after he completes the 20,000 other projects he has lined up. Change-Up is first on the docket, followed by Safe House with Denzel Washington. Shooting will start late next summer on R.I.P.D. Until that time, Schwentke will be following Reynolds around, tapping his foot impatiently and staring at his watch. (Deadline)
“I hate Adam Sandler movies.”
I used to get pissed off when I’d hear someone say that. First of all, it should be “Sandler’s movies,” not “Sandler movies.” Not that I’m a grammar Nazi, but come on! Second, what‘s not to like?
When pressed, most Sandler haters would reply with something along the lines of “his movies are stupid.” Of course they’re stupid. Most comedies are. But Sandler’s don’t pretend to be anything more. If you want something “intellectual,” go whack off to Vicky Cristina Barcelona. I prefer to laugh.
Michael Caine has admitted on record that the only reason he did Jaws: The Revenge was for the money and the free trip to the Bahamas. "I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific!" So, there's not much surprise that he's agreed to co-star opposite the Rock in the Hawaii-based Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Plus, he gets to work with Cats & Dogs 2: The Revenge Of Kitty Galore director Brad Peyton. What actor would turn down that opportunity?!
In the film, he'll portray Josh Hutcherson's adventure-seeking granddad who wanders off and winds up on a mysterious island. This will be an action-heavy role for Caine that will see him squaring off against giant bees. If you listen closely, that beeping sound is a dump truck full of money backing up to Oscar-winner Michael Caine's terrific house. (THR)
In a recent interview with MTV, director Reuben Fleischer spoke about a possible sequel to his hit film, Zombieland. While he is currently preoccupied with his latest project, 30 Minutes or Less, Fleischer expressed interest in shooting the second installment in 3D…if he shoots it at all.
When it comes to 3D, I feel pretty strongly that you should shoot it in camera. I feel like it just looks so much better. If you're going to make a 3D movie, go ahead and make a 3D movie. I would definitely, if we do 'Zombieland 2,' make it in 3D and want to shoot it in 3D.
I'm not sure I totally agree with that statement. Clash of the Titans wasn't shot in 3D, and the film looked awesome after the conversion. Of course, I never actually watched the film. I just took a bag of mushrooms and stared at the poster until the theater manager asked me to leave. But still, the scene where Liam Neeson craps in the parking lot is amazing. Or was that me? Either way, great movie. (Dread Central)
