Mel Gibson is Renting a Mexican Prison

Monday, December 7 by

  Mexican Governer Fidel Herrerra is emptying out a large section of a Veracruz prison to make room for Mel Gibson. The actor is said to be shooting a large production though there is no word on what the project will be. My fingers are perma-crossed that we'll finally see a big budget remake of the girls-in-sexy-jail classic Caged Heat. The Governer refers to Gibson as his friend, probably due to the fact that since shooting Apocalypto in Veracruz, Gibson has also donated $1 million to replace storm-damaged homes in the area. A few years ago I would view this as a thoughtful act of charity. Nowadays I'm not so quick to trust Gibson, and now he has the Mexican government in his pocket. What is he planning? (THR)

‘A Single Man’ Actress Ginnifer Goodwin

Monday, December 7 by

Ginnifer Goodwin is Bill Pullman's youngest wife of three in Big Love on HBO. Unfortunately they don't do a lot of threesomes on the show because I guess God "frowns" on that sort of stuff, but I don't particularly want to see Chloe Sevigny naked anyway.   A word from Ginnifer: "I have no idea how to play her, but I am dying to figure it out."It's all part of the process, Ginny. Unless of course you fail miserably at honing your craft.  Feel some big love with the pics after the jump.

Trippy Tarantino SoftBank Commercial

Monday, December 7 by

Someone let Quentin Tarantino play with the Japanese, and the result is unsettling. Below is a commercial that Tarantino starred in for SoftBank, a Japanese cell phone company. There's a talking real dog, a talking fake dog, a black man in a kimono, a screaming white woman, and Tarantino, who probably thinks this is all happening in his head. I don't speak Japanese, so if you can translate this please tell me if it's signaling the end of the world.  

‘It’s Complicated’ Poster Celebrates Old People Sex

Monday, December 7 by

The poster for Nancy Meyers's It's Complicated shows Oscar co-host Alec Baldwin and Oscar winner Meryl Streep in post-coital bliss. Actually, Baldwin has a look of contented bliss and Streep has a look of dissatisfied worry (obviously he stole a page from my playbook). At any rate, gross Mom and Dad!!!Also, does Alec Baldwin always look like Keyboard Cat after sex?

First Teaser Trailer for ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ Teases You One Year Out

Sunday, December 6 by

As usual, all is not well at Hogwarts. Voldemort's power has grown stronger, and he has control of the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts. Meanwhile, Harry, Ron, and Hermoine are trying to put to rest the Dark Lord and their boners, which are inveritable forces in their teenage years. The newly released teaser trailer starts off with director David Yates and producer David Heyman talking about how lovely it is to be creatively involved and making sh*tbuckets full of money on the last two Potter installments. Fast forward 50 seconds and you get the real meat – actual film footage and John Hurt being awesome. Sure, it's great to see the wizard trio, but come on, the always brilliant supporting cast in these movies bring the real magic. That's right, I said magic.  Check out the teaser trailer after the jump, then the movie a year from now when it opens November 19th, 2010.

Producer Spills New ‘Jack Ryan’ Movie Details

Friday, December 4 by

Screen Junkies caught up with producer Mace Neufeld after he spoke at the Invictus press conference earlier today. Here's what he had to say about the next Jack Ryan project, which thus far remains untitled:Why did you go with an original script and not one of the books? "Well, we were out of books. Red Rabbit was the last one and we just couldn't seem to get a script out of that. The new management came into Paramount. They said, "This is a really valuable franchise. Let's try and restart it with a younger actor. The Chris Pine idea came up and hopefully that's what we'll be doing"   Who did the rewrite? Adam Cozad. Hossein Amini did one draft and Adam is now working on another one.   No title yet? No title, The Untitled Jack Ryan movie.   Will you reboot his origin like you did with Sum of all Fears? No, no. We pick him up when he's on Wall Street.   Do you have action set pieces in mind? It all starts with the writer. It really does. When you say, 'We need action, action, action.' The Jack Ryan movies have never been action films. They've been thinknig man's thrillers. Jack is referred to as a water walker because of his ability to jump ahead to a conclusion. We've always seen that in all the Ryan films. That's how we want to portray him. He's a teacher, he's a historian, he's a linguist and he's really smart.   Would you shoot in Annapolis or DC again? D.C. probably yes. So there you have it. Seems like Paramount is pumped to deliver a quality Jack Ryan movie in order to wash the taste of Affleck out of our mouths. Eeewww. Tastes like almonds.

Matt Damon Won’t Do ‘Bourne 4′ Without Paul Greengrass

Friday, December 4 by

We reported earlier this week that Paul Greengrass bailed on the fourth Bourne installment after having a falling out with the cash-strapped Universal. Now it appears that Matt Damon is showing some loyalty, and sticking by his director's side.When Screen Junkies caught up with Damon at the Invictus press junket he told us, "I'll wait for him and when he wants to do one, we'll do it." When asked specifically is it Greengrass or no Bourne, the actor went on to say, "I've always said that, but I think it will happen. Just down the road. We don't have a script right now."With Damon holding on tightly to the hand of Greengrass maybe Universal will reach a little deeper into their pockets. Afterall, they need to hold on to the Bourne series like grim death if they plan on eating anything other than Ramen next year.

‘Everybody’s Fine’ Actress Katherine Moennig

Friday, December 4 by

Katherine Moennig is known for choosing non-traditional roles, usually those that involve gender-bending. An example of this is her playing a lesbian on The L Word. Some girls can really pull off short hair. A word from Katherine: "The clothes are comfortable…but on a deeper level I learned that the competition between boys and girls isn't as strong as between women."Yep, I'm envisioning a pilot fight too. Check out more gender-bending pics after the jump.

EXCLUSIVE! ‘Heroes’ Will Most Likely Get a 5th Season

Friday, December 4 by

 Whole lot of shaking going on at NBC and more specifically Heroes. This past week we saw the killing off of Adrian Pasdar's character, heard the news that Sendhil Ramamurthy has been cast in a new pilot for the network, and the network itself merged with Comcast. Everyone is taking the departure of Ramamurthy and Pasdar as a sign that the show is canceled. ScreenJunkies reached out to an inside source at Heroes who confirmed these rumors as false.Our source tells us that Ramamurthy got a pilot and asked the writers to write him out. They obliged.  Everyone loves Sendhil Ramamurthy and his character, but the truth is he didn't have a lot of screen time this season, and the writers felt they shouldn't stand in the way of the actor's future. Look for Mohinder Suresh to make his exeunt in an episode airing in late January.Our source further tells us that given that Heroes (and it's DVD sales) is huge all over the world, it's doubtful it will be canceled anytime soon. From a business standpoint, another season would bring the number of shows up to 100 which would position Heroes as a bona fide asset for future ancillary ventures. In fact, as The Hollywood Reporter pointed out, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts gave a verbal shout-out to Heroes on his phone call to investors after the merger went through yesterday. It's always a good thing to impress the new boss. That's why I wear tight t-shirts around the office. How you gonna hate on a guy who looks like Rambo pretty much with his shirt off?

‘Brooklyn’s Finest’ Trailer

Friday, December 4 by

With so much crime in the city, how do I teach these keeeeeeedz?! It appears Antoine Fuqua liked his breakout film Training Day so much that he decided to remake it as an ensemble drama and change the title to Brooklyn's Finest. Ethan Hawke plays the same character he did in Training Day, except now he's got more kids to provide for, and Richard Gere is an older, whiter version of Denzel Washington's Alonzo. Along with Hawke and Gere, the film stars Wesley Snipes in corn rows, Don Cheadle donning several different hats, and Will Patton, who's always awesome. Their character's stories interweave in a plot that's not unlike Crash's, but with more corrupt cops or something. Even though it's doubtful, maybe this film will steal an Oscar too.

Tracy Morgan is Above The Law in New ‘Cops’ Pic

Friday, December 4 by

Here's a newly released still from Kevin Smith's upcoming Untitled Cop Movie (formerly known as A Couple Of Dicks). It's not official yet but it looks like the film will be given the watered-down title A Couple Of Cops. Buzz on this movie is that it is hilarious and I don't doubt that. Barring The Whole Nine Yards, Willis has turned in some funny performances in his career. And to see him and Tracy Morgan square off against gangsters should be entertaining. I am frightened by the thought of Tracy Morgan wielding the power of a gun and badge though. Frightened for our women. "Excuse me, ma'am. You have the right to remain silent and I have the right to make you pregnant. My d*ck is going to frisk your uterus." (via First Showing)
