Jack Black Keeps Shirley MacLaine Alive for ‘Bernie’

Saturday, August 7 by

Jack Black is reteaming with School of Rock director Richard Linklater for Bernie. Shirley MacLaine will also star and mother everyone on set. THR has the deets:
"Bernie" is set in the small town of Carthage, Texas and follows a Renaissance man-community leader-mortician Bernie (Black) who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a wealthy but very particular widow (MacLaine). When he kills her, he goes to great lengths to maintain the illusion that she is still alive.
Is no one seeing the similarities to Weekend at Bernie's here? You know, the movie where two business executives go visit their boss at his beach house for a weekend, he ends up dying, and they make it look like he's still alive? This new movie is even called BERNIE. At least change the title! And don't think Andrew McCarthy won't call about a cameo. Ever since the failed "Lipstick Jungle" on NBC, he's been waiting patiently on his couch for an opportunity like this.

‘Lost’ Epilogue Provides Closure. Ha Ha, Just Kidding!!

Friday, August 6 by

Now that the Losties have shuffled off to be BFFs in Cheesy Plot Twist Heaven, we finally figure what the hell was happening on that island thanks to this short epilogue. Ben Linus takes a trip to Guam to lay-off Sammy Haggar and Bill Nye the Science Guy and agrees to answer one question from each. And then gather around the television to watch a six-minute DVD. He's a busy man. A busy man dressed like Mr. Furley.
Here's a quick rundown of what precious answers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse decide to share with us (bear in mind that I'm paraphrasing): dumb, dumb, stupid. dumb, WWAAALLLLTTTTT!!!!!!, dumb. The End. Thanks for watching!

Christoph Waltz Eyed For ‘Spider-Man’ Villian Role

Friday, August 6 by

There's a rumor going around Tinz Town that Christoph Waltz may encourage Mary Jane Watson to wait for the cream. The Inglourious Basterds bad man is said to be in Sony's sights to play the villian in the upcoming Spider-Man 3D reboot. Note that they are only interested. Waltz hasn't indicated that he's interested. However, he did agree to star in Paul W. S. Anderson's Three Musketeers, so it's not like he's picky.
Whether Waltz is sought for the role of the Lizard or Green Goblin is unclear as of right now. Perhaps he's a method actor and got lost in his Basterds' Jew Hunter role. Y'know, you see the name "Spiderman" on paper and you just kinda assume. (The Playlist)

Robin Wright to Play Daniel Craig’s Ladyfriend in ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’

Friday, August 6 by

We keep getting casting news on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo except the news we care about. No, they still haven't found the actress who will play the computer hacker Lisbeth Salander, but Robin Wright has joined the film as Daniel Craig's casual f*ck buddy. According to Deadline, Wright "is in talks to play Erika Berger, the publisher of crusading finance magazine Millennium, and the occasional lover of journalist Mikael Blomkvist."
With Fincher directing, I hope Wright and Craig remember to stay well-hydrated. He'll have them simulating sex take after take after take to Nine Inch Nails until they can't possibly simulate sex any longer. Craig will get frustrated, Wright will get sore, and Fincher will confer with Brad Pitt, who I assume lives in his shirt pocket.

Daily Expendable: Terry Crews

Friday, August 6 by

Terry Crews is your go-to big funny guy bad ass. He can make you laugh as well as rip out your throat — just look at those Old Spice Ads. As we've seen since White Chicks, he can be the funniest and most compelling character on screen. And on top of all that, he was a running back for the San Diego Chargers in the 90s.
Highly Debatable Best Role: President Camacho in Idiocracy

Weird Fact: Crews was chosen to be a series regular known as the urban warrior, T-Money on "Battle Dome."

Darth Schwarzenegger

The age-old question of what if Arnold Schwarzenegger did the voice of Darth Vader in Star Wars instead of James Earl Jones has finally been answered. I can't wait until George Lucas re-releases all six films with this new, more appropriate dubbing.

‘Middle Men’ Actress Jesse Jane

Friday, August 6 by

Jesse Jane has lived the american dream, from banging Tommy Lee in a VIP night club to starring in the most expensive porn movies made to date. This week she'll be showing her duck-lipped face in Middle Men, playing herself, of course.
A word from Jesse: [on shooting in HD] "Everything is exaggerated. A blemish can look huge, and it's impossible to disguise bumps and bruises with makeup, because the makeup stands out, as well. You have to be very careful."

And imagine the breast implant scars. They must look like untreated battle wounds.

Hall, Byrne, Woll, and Winstead In The Running To Be Sexually-Harassed By Casey Affleck On ‘The F Word’ Set

Friday, August 6 by

Four young actresses are in the running to play opposite Casey Affleck in The F Word. Rebecca Hall, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rose Byrne, Deborah Ann Woll are expected to camera test for the female lead in the quirky, romantic comedy that appeared on the 2008 Black List. It tells the story of a couple who would like to date, but decide to be friends instead while wrestling with their attraction to one another over a long period of time.
Personally, I think all of these actresses are perfect choices for the project and would like to see their careers take off. Sadly, there can be only one. It all depends on who tests best on-camera and freaks out the least when a naked Affleck crawls into her bed in the middle of the night. I think Rebecca Hall has a leg-up on this one.

Review: ‘Middle Men’

Friday, August 6 by

Middle Men
R, 97min., 2010
Cast: Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribsi, Gabriel Macht, Rade Serbedzija, Laura Ramsey, Jacinda Barett, with Robert Forester and James Caan
Directed by George Gallo
Screenplay by George Gallo and Andy Weiss

Middle Men is too impatient to give us the epic about how the Internet porn empire was made and settles for cliché drama that is given some spark by a committed cast of actors.

Denzel in ‘Unstoppable’ Trailer

Friday, August 6 by

Denzel Washington and Tony Scott have a bigger fascination with trains than imaginative eight-year-old boys or fifty-year-old listless husbands. This time Chris Pine and Rosario Dawson board the duo's ride in the new trailer for Unstoppable. The film tells the story of an experienced engineer (Washington) who finds himself teaming up with a young conductor (Pine) in a race against time, with a runaway train carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals. Ageism and flash-frame-dissolve-cross-fade-smash-cuts are big themes. Oh Tony Scott, you shake that camera like you've got a bad case of palsy, and we love you for it.

‘Saw 3D’ May Not Be The End Of The Series

Friday, August 6 by

Hey guys, it turns out that the next Saw may not be the last of the Saws. That's insane, right? Well, then Betsy Russell is insane, I guess. Here's what the actress told the NY Post:
"Before we thought it was ending [with 'Saw 7'], the writers came up with an unbelievable idea [for 'Saw 8']," Betsy revealed to PopWrap. "It's an amazing story that I would love to see. We want to end near the top, with our integrity intact and not letting the characters die a slow death, so to speak. But I believe in my heart that someday, somehow, ['Saw 8'] will happen."
When was the last time that a long-running horror franchise intended to wrap up the story, but the boost of 3D ticket sales caused it to continue on? In the last month, I mean. See? You can't think of any.
