If Mark Wahlberg overpowers you and puts a gun to your head while warning you not to harm his wife and kid, the last thing you should up and do is harm his wife or kid. Obviously Giovanni Ribisi didn’t get that memo. Here he is in this Contraband trailer harming wives and kids like nobody’s business. Get a clue, guy.

The trailer also features a short montage of Kate Beckinsale getting dressed. I don’t want to tell you trailer editors how to do your job, but you might want to consider playing that footage backward. And slowly. Oh yeah, that’s more like it.

Johnny Depp’s Second Hunter S. Thompson Movie Has A Release Date http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/johnny-depp-going-back-to-the-hunter-s-thompson-well/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/johnny-depp-going-back-to-the-hunter-s-thompson-well/#comments Tue, 29 Mar 2011 18:30:45 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=204250 Put the tab on your tongue and relax, man.

Actor Johnny Depp famously portrayed Hunter S. Thompson during back-to-back-to-back-to-back (etc.) acid trips in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. But he wasn’t just playing a part – he apparently became good friends with his subject, who showed him the unpublished manuscript for his novel “The Rum Diary.” And Depp, being insane, up and made this into a movie. Now, that movie is getting released later this year on October 28th by FilmDistrict. The movie is directed by Bruce Robinson and stars Aaron Eckhart, Amber Heard, Michael Rispoli, Richard Jenkins and Giovanni Ribisi. Here’s what it’s all about:

“‘The Rum Diary’ tells the increasingly unhinged story of itinerant journalist Paul Kemp (Depp). Tired of the noise and madness of New York and the crushing conventions of late Eisenhower-era America, Kemp travels to the pristine island of Puerto Rico to write for a local San Juan newspaper run by the downtrodden editor Lotterman (Jenkins). Adopting the rum-soaked lifestyle of the late ‘50s version of Hemingway’s ‘The Lost Generation, Paul soon becomes entangled with a very attractive American woman, Chenault (Heard) and her fiancée Sanderson (Eckhart), a businessman involved in shady property development deals. It is within this world that Kemp ultimately discovers his true voice as a writer and integrity as a man.”

So it’s not a sequel or anything, but Depp is playing ANOTHER character based on Hunter S. Thompson. No matter what, it’s probably better than The Tourist. (via Deadline)

Giovanni Ribisi Wants To Play With ‘Ted’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/giovanni-ribisi-wants-to-play-with-ted/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/giovanni-ribisi-wants-to-play-with-ted/#comments Wed, 23 Feb 2011 17:01:45 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=29308 Giovanni Ribisi is "obsessed with Ted."

The post Giovanni Ribisi Wants To Play With ‘Ted’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Creator of universally beloved characters like the elderly pedophile and greased-up deaf guy, Seth MacFarlane, is working on a live-action comedy called Ted. And he’s gathering quite a cast, including Mila Kunis and Adam Scott. Now you can add the bizarro Ryan Gosling, Giovanni Ribisi to the list, who’s signed on to play “Donny, a man who’s obsessed with Ted.” In case you don’t know, “Ted” is a teddy bear who comes to life thanks to a childhood wish of a man to be played by Mark Wahlberg.

Since this is MacFarlane, the bear will probably be either British, gay, or both, and make a lot of rape jokes. You know, there was a time when in Hollywood you couldn’t get a cast like this to associate with rape jokes. Progress has its good points, I guess. (via Coming Soon)

This next piece of news will cause streaks in your blue face paint, Avatards. The good news is that James Cameron plans to shoot two Avatar sequels back-to-back. The bad news is that you’ll be dressing ridiculously for a long, long time to come. Cameron tells EW:

“I am in the process of writing the next two Avatar films now. We are planning to shoot them together and post them together, and we will probably release them not quite back to back, but about a year apart. Christmas ’14 and ’15 is the current plan.”

So run that estimate through the James Cameron technology development filter… multiply by future chance of 3D fatigue… carry over the one… five years. We’ll probably be waiting five years. Sadly, Giovanni Ribisi may lose his boyish looks by then. Oh yeah, he’s probably going to come back for the sequel.

“Basically, if you survived the first film, you get to be in the second film, at least in some form.”

So, just like Nightmare On Elm Street 4? Except better for the oceans.

“Fox has partnered with me to donate a chunk of the profits to environmental causes that are at the heart of the Avatar world. I didn’t want to make more Avatar movies without a grander plan in place.”

Almost makes up for the pollutants rendered while producing 3D glasses. Ah, the Circle Of Life.

Ben Foster and Giovanni Ribisi are close to smuggling their way into the cast of Contraband, Variety is reporting. If the deal goes through, the pair will join Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale, who have already been cast in the thriller.

The film, a remake of a 2009 Icelandic film about a security guard who is dragged back in to his former life of crime, is being directed by Baltasar Kormakur, who also co-wrote, produced and starred in the original. Without question, it is the finest Icelandic film I’ve ever come across. No, really. It wins, hands down.
