After years of doing anything for a paycheck, it’s a bit surprising it took this long for Robert De Niro and John Cusack to cross paths. It’s like De Niro wasn’t even offered Hot Tub Time Machine.

Despite De Niro’s hairdo, The Bag Man is not a comedy. Yet a thriller that sends John Cusack to a seedy motel to hang out with that actress who will most likely get naked. They don’t come right out and say that in the trailer, but it’s heavily implied. This trailer shows so much of her skin, you’d think the wardrobe van was stolen.

Emma Roberts proves that she can be just as beguiling as a Juno or an Enid Coleslaw with her role in Adult World. She stars as a college student aspiring to be the world’s most famous poet. However,  that distinction belongs to Maya Angelou and you do not want to make that woman take off her earrings. Trapped in a world where everyone thinks her poetry sucks, Roberts must get a job selling dildos for Cloris Leachman. It’s through this experience that she finds her true voice… writing while drunk.

John Cusack Obvious Choice For Lead In Rush Limbaugh Biopic http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/john-cusack-obvious-choice-for-lead-in-rush-limbaugh-biopic/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/john-cusack-obvious-choice-for-lead-in-rush-limbaugh-biopic/#comments Mon, 05 Nov 2012 13:31:01 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=251843 It's fitting seeing as they both need a hit.

The post John Cusack Obvious Choice For Lead In Rush Limbaugh Biopic appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Joining the ranks of Eddie Murphy, Mike Myers, Martin Lawrence, Tyra Banks, and whoever plays Grimace, John Cusack has expressed his desire to act in a fat suit. Teamed with director Betty Thomas, Cusack is helping to put the finishing touches on the script for the biopic, Rush. And no, it’s not about the beloved Canadian nerd band. Rather the eventual film tells the story of conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.

Though Cusack doesn’t seem like the obvious choice for the lead, it’s actually fitting seeing as both men need a hit. What better way to show some range and stretch himself as an actor than playing a character involved with Viagra-popping, Oxycodone, and yelling “slut” and “prostitute” at young, female college students? I should amend that. What better way to show some range and stretch himself as an actor than playing a character involved with Viagra-popping, Oxycodone, and yelling “slut” and “prostitute” at young, female college students in a non-Hot Tub Time Machine sequel?

Seriously though, how did this role not go to Meat Loaf? (NY Times)

Top 10 Movies About Serial Killers You Thank God Aren’t Real http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/top-10-movies-about-serial-killers-you-thank-god-arent-real/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/top-10-movies-about-serial-killers-you-thank-god-arent-real/#comments Mon, 16 Apr 2012 16:00:23 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=248072 No copycats please.

The post Top 10 Movies About Serial Killers You Thank God Aren’t Real appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
In The Raven, Edgar Allan Poe squares off against a serial killer the likes of which the world had never seen. The shadowy figure bases his murders upon Poe’s works of fiction, eventually pulling Poe into the investigation for a game of cat and mouse. Thankfully for the world (and Dean R. Koontz), this killer didn’t actually exist. The same goes for the killers listed below. Had they been around taking lives, the world would be a far more twisted place.

George Harvey – The Lovely Bones

George Harvey works as a particularly scary serial killer because he seems like he could be real. The wolf who hides in sheep’s clothing, always one step ahead of his victims and authorities. He hides in plain sight as an affable dollhouse maker and confirmed bachelor. Really, the last guy you’d ever expect to have a hollowed out rape den beneath the local cornfield.

Patrick Bateman – American Psycho

This Harvard grad has it all. A successful Wall Street career, good looks, an apartment next to Tom Cruise, and stellar taste in music. He’s also absolutely insane and kills prostitutes, homeless people, and Jared Leto for sport. He’s the last person you’d expect to be capable of killing strangers with power tools, and he has the resources to cover up his unspeakable crimes. He’s easily the most dangerous 1980′s douche bag. And, yes, I’m factoring in Johnny Lawrence from The Karate Kid.

Stuntman Mike – Death Proof

I pray to God every night that Death Proof’s Stuntman Mike doesn’t actually exist. Sure, the State of Texas boasts an abundance of gorgeous young women, but that doesn’t mean that a twisted gear head is free to go about killing them as he pleases. There’s not an endless supply. No one appreciates your vehicle-based babe slaying, Mike.

It’s come to this. Nicolas Cage and John Cusack will next share the screen with 50 Cent in the thriller Frozen Ground. Cent will play a motherf*ckin’ Alaskan P-I-M-P who finds his profits and employees dropping when Cusack’s Butcher Baker keeps murdering his prostitutes.

I guess it makes sense that Alaska would have pimps and hoes but I find this concept utterly fascinating. A&E had better get their reality show cameras up there immediately. I want Ice Road F*ckers on air by this spring. (via Cinema Blend)

The post Cage And Cusack To Star In Thriller ‘The Frozen Ground’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Nicolas Cage and John Cusack are on the verge of having themselves a little Con Air reunion with their participation in The Frozen Ground, directed and written by Scott Walker. The film, which is based on real events, follows the double life of family man Robert Hansen, who has the curious hobby of capturing women, then hunting them in the Alaskan wilderness.

In an odd reversal, John Cusack will play the psychopath while Nic Cage plays the lawman who eventually brings him to justice, with the help of Hansen’s sole living victim. The film marks Walker’s directorial debut, and the premise sounds pretty awesome. Couple that with that fact that Cage’s participation doesn’t involve hamming it up as yet another psycho, and this project sounds very promising.

No casting announcement has been made on the living victim, but expect the role to get a lot more interest now that Cage and Cusack are hopping on. (Deadline)

While we wait around for the trailer, Comic-Con 2011 has been nice enough to preview these looks at The Raven. Look at John Cusack there. He’s just investigating the crap out of those crimes. It’s no wonder FilmNation was so excited to work with director James McTeigue again.

As previously reported, The Raven stars John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe in the final days of his life. Luke Evans plays a detective who teams with Poe when a vicious serial killer kidnaps the author’s really hot fiancee (Alice Eve) and begins modeling his killings after Poe’s work. Talk about commitment from a writer. I doubt you’d see Tucker Max on the scene with a magnifying glass if a killer were to start murdering women in the douchiest ways possible.

The Raven opens in theaters March 9th, 2012. (Bloody Disgusting)

Will Forte has joined Julianne Hough in Rock Of Ages. He’ll play Mitch Miley, a lead anchor of a network news show. The role was not part of the stage musical, and oddly won’t require cross-dressing or male nudity, but may involve karaoke. So at least he’ll be embarrassed one way or another. (THR)

The Office‘s BJ Novak has taken a small role in Sacha Baron Cohen‘s The Dictator. There’s a 90% chance he’ll end up with balls in his face. (The Playlist)

Paul Rudd will star in Errol Morris’s second narrative film We Froze the First Man. In the film, he’ll play a 1960′s television repairman who develops his own cryogenic freezing technology. He’s way more ambitious than that lazy Maytag repair dickhead. (/Film)

The upcoming John Cusack thriller The Raven has a great title that fit its crackerjack premise: Edgar Allan Poe helps a young detective solve a series of killings that are inspired by Poe. Unfortunately, it now no longer belongs to the grand cinematic tradition of movies called The Raven, and instead belongs to the grand cinematic tradition of movies called “The Untitled Raven Project.”

The reason for this change is not known, although some are speculating it’s so as not to conflict with an adaptation of the scifi short story “The Raven,” which is also in production. Which is total BS, because Poe thought of the title “The Raven” first.

Anyway, it’s not all bad news for The Untitled Raven Project, since it also has a release date: March 9, 2012. So mark your gothic, Poe-themed desk calendars now. (/Film)

John Cusack is making a new movie that’s being described as a “screwball comedy.” I didn’t think comedies were still described as “screwball” – not since 80s movies with titles like Screwballz or Bikini University. However, the C-Sack is starring in a new entry to the genre called Dictablanda.

Director Alejandro Agresti (The Lake House) will helm Dictablanda, which sounds like a furniture line at IKEA. The name actually translates to ‘Soft Dictator’, which is what Muammar Gaddafi calls it when he can’t get it up. *Rimshot* Kevin Morris and Paul Hipp (to be square) star alongside Cusack. The film is about an “international incident” and has the hilarious tag line: “People don’t die, they get killed.” Uh, okay. If you say so, movie tag line.

Filming begins later this month in Argentina. (Cinema Blend)

The John Cusack film The Raven, in which the beloved actor portrays Edgar Allan Poe, has been acquired by Relativity Media. The drama, produced by Intrepid Pictures, was directed by James McTiegue, and tells of Poe’s last few days, albeit fictionalized. The film was written by Ben Livingston and Hannah Shakespeare, and also stars Luke Evans, Alice Eve, Brendan Gleeson and Oliver Jackson-Cohen. Trevor Macy and Marc D. Evans at Intrepid produced the film, with no clear release date yet. In the film, Poe tries to tracks down a serial killer inspired by Poe’s dark writing. Talk about revisionist history! What’s next, a movie about Abe Lincol fighting vampires? Oh…

You completely surpassed our threshold for simplicity and looped back the other way. Now we’re all baffled as to what the film, directed by James McTeigue, is portraying. Maybe you could work on a title sequence that’s completed constructed by, with, and for ravens. (Vulture)

Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides – has a teaser poster featuring a metallic, pirate skull. It looks like The Expendables teaser poster dressed as Capt. Jack Sparrow for Halloween. (IMP Awards)

John Cusack Is Dressed Like Edgar Allan Poe - Here’s a snapshot of John Cusack on the set of James McTeigue‘s The Raven. It looks more like John Cusack dressed as Johnny Depp for Halloween. (Daily Dead)

First Look At Cars 2- Pixar provides the first official image from Cars 2, showing Lightning McQueen and Mater the Tow Truck participating in the World Grand Prix — an international race to determine the fastest car in the world. While overseas, Mater gets caught up in the world of spy espionage. A backward hillbilly getting mistaken for an international spy? That sounds more like the plot of a Larry the Cable Guy movie. Oh. (Hey You Guys)

Cowboys & Aliens teaser poster - Those aliens don’t stand a chance against Daniel Craig’s boomstick and Nintendo Power Glove. Sadly, no naked Olivia Wilde. Now THAT would be a tease. (Yahoo)

Considering Poe wasn't a stranger to smoking a boat-load of opium for inspiration, I wonder if they'll incorporate that character trait into the film. Nothing would give me more pleasure than watching John Cusack stumbling around 1850s Baltimore stoned out of his gourd on barbiturates. It would be like a really old school episode of "The Wire."

Scientists are going to kick their own asses in the balls when they see how simple the formula was all along. Using simple algebra, one combines energy drink, vodka, and a squirrel. Add that to four mismatched friends and divide the sum by a hot tub.

Let’s sincerely hope those components do not actually unlock space and time. Ted Nugent probably has a hot tub and more than likely he’s tripping over crunk juice and squirrels. I don’t want to imagine a reality where he has traveled back through time and become our overlord. He’ll hunt us all. (EW)

Red Band ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ Trailer Dares to Insult ‘Back to the Future II’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/red-band-hot-tub-time-machine-trailer-dares-to-insult-back-to-the-future-ii/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/red-band-hot-tub-time-machine-trailer-dares-to-insult-back-to-the-future-ii/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The red band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine is here to give us a swearier/boobier look at what we've already seen. It stars John Cusack, Rob Corddry, and Craig Robinson as the characters from The Hangover, as well as Clark Duke as a kid that looks like a koala or a young Charles Nelson Reilly. You can catch the movie in theaters on March 19th. You can also catch hepatitis from a toilet seat, which I would gladly do over watching this movie. (Coming Soon)WATCH THE NSFW TRAILER AFTER THE JUMP...

John Cusack Relives ‘Better Off Dead’ in ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/john-cusack-relives-better-off-dead-in-hot-tub-time-machine-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/john-cusack-relives-better-off-dead-in-hot-tub-time-machine-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 I've heard of a night of wild drinking, but this is ridiculous (Rim shot. Fart.)! The new trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine just materialized and it's got a bit of a retro vibe to it. First of all, John Cusack must be having the biggest mindf*cking of his life after being dropped back in to Better Off Dead. After that wild winter why would he ever want to go back to the slopes? Hot Tub stars Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, and Clark Duke as friends who after a night of drinking Red Bulls and vodkas, and supposedly not playing "let's compare penises" in a whirlpool, travel back to the 80s, where all the people they know in the present are younger, and there are cassette tapes. Holy sh*t! My guess is there will be a ton of jokes based on the fact that things are different in the world now. Fingers crossed there's one about ungroomed pubic hair. Women's businesses be nasty back then. Hot Tub Time Machine materializes in theaters March 19th, 2010. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Maybe Emmerich can work that into a redux of the The Patriot.  Until then, we can watch John Cusack and a motley cast of other recognizable faces outrun the end of the world much like the characters do in The Day After Tomorrow and Independence Day.
