Leonardo DiCaprio And Jonah Hill Continue Their Bromance With Richard Jewell Biopic http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/leonardo-dicaprio-and-jonah-hill-continue-their-bromance-with-richard-jewell-biopic/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/leonardo-dicaprio-and-jonah-hill-continue-their-bromance-with-richard-jewell-biopic/#comments Tue, 04 Feb 2014 21:37:59 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=259088 Just kiss already.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill must have had a lot of fun tossing dwarves on the Wolf of Wall Street set because they are suddenly inseparable. Not only are they teaming up to produce a show about Q-Tip’s early career and hugging all up on one another on SNL, but today comes word that they will once again reunite onscreen to tell the story of Richard Jewell, the security guard wrongly accused by news outlets of being a terrorist involved in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bombing.

This time, Hill will step into the lead for a more grounded depiction of Paul Blart while DiCaprio will play the real estate attorney who helped defend Jewell in the national terrorism case. Sounds like your typical Hollywood tale of a couple of plucky underdogs out to prove that they weren’t involved with mass murder. Bad News Bears Go To Trial all over again. (Deadline)

Now that a schedule change has made it eligible for awards season, Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street would like to remind you that Jonah Hill wears crazy Fire Marshall Bill teeth in this movie. What better way to distract from the fact that this film is the true life tale of a total piece of shit whose lack of morality plunged this country into devastating economic turmoil? God, I hope this movie ends with all the characters choking on their own feces.

Martin Scorsese’s upcoming film The Wolf of Wall Street is shaping up to have one plum of a cast. And in addition to names like star Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, and Jean Dujardin, a new name was recently announced: None other than Rob “Stop Calling Me ‘Meathead’” Reiner, who will be playing the part of Leonardo DiCaprio’s dad.

Interesting thing about the current picture we have of the cast: Hill, Dujardin, and Reiner are all known for their work in comedic productions. This is leading some analysts to speculate that perhaps Scorsese has something a bit more lighthearted in mind than the movie’s subject matter might suggest at first – it’s about “a wheeling and dealing New York stockbroker who sees his career and personal life fall into shambles thanks to sex, drugs and alcohol.” Uh, hilarious?

The post 7 Oscar Categories That Should Exist (And Who Would Win Them) appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The Academy Awards have been running strong for 84 years now, and to put it nicely, they are in need of a few renovations. The fact that Billy Crystal will be hosting for the tenth time this year only furthers this theory. That’s not a knock on the ceremony, but simply an observation. The fact is, all things must change with the times; the Constitution did it, The Beatles did it, and Steve Jobs’ ghost forces us to do it by releasing a new goddamn Iproduct every goddamn month. The Oscars need a fresh breath of life, and what better way to mix things up then to add a few new categories? We’ve managed to do just that, and even gone as far as to predict who will win each, because we really are that damn good.

Best Performance by an Inanimate Object

Nominees
The book from The Help
Jonah Hill in Moneyball
The pills that killed Gwyneth Paltrow in Country Strong
The ring in Green Lantern
Channing Tatum in The Eagle

Winner: As was the case for his Best Supporting Actor “worthy” role in Moneyball, there would be a public backlash for Jonah Hill’s nomination in this category. Movie going audiences will claim that, just because Hill was fat to the point of immobility in the film does not qualify him as an inanimate object. In the end, it will be a pointless argument, as the gold statue will be given to Channing Tatum for his portrayal of the chariot in The Eagle. The above photo will be snapped of Tatum during his acceptance speech, which will consist mainly of Chewbacca-esque grunts and quotes from Old School.

Best Actor in the Worst Movie a.k.a The Michael Madsen Award

Nominees
Natalie Portman in No Strings Attached
Sir Anthony Hopkins in The Rite
Tom Hanks in Larry Crowne
Aaron Eckhart in Battle: Los Angeles
Jim Carrey in Mr. Popper’s Penguins

Winner: In a shocking twist, the award will be deemed a tie between the entire cast of New Year’s Eve with the exception of Ashton Kutcher. Sarah Jessica Parker will accept the award on behalf of the cast, at which point the viewing audiences across the nation will erupt into fits of rage and confusion as to why the presenters just allowed Warhorse to waltz off with an undeserved Oscar.

9 Worst Movie Babysitters Besides Jonah Hill http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-worst-movie-babysitters-besides-jonah-hill/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-worst-movie-babysitters-besides-jonah-hill/#comments Fri, 09 Dec 2011 17:33:47 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=239268 What could possibly go wrong?

The post 9 Worst Movie Babysitters Besides Jonah Hill appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
In The Sitter, Jonah Hill stars as a college student on a suspension who is talked into watching his neighbor’s children. The problem is that the kids are monsters (not literally) and he’d much rather be having sex with his girlfriend. So, he takes the little sh*ts to a party in Manhattan where he can knock boots and the kids can get exposed to psychopathic drug dealers and urban music. Do you know what happens next? Hijinks, you guys.

Though he does sound like a pretty irresponsible care-giver, he’s not nearly as bad as the so-called authority figures on this list.

Buck Russell – Uncle Buck

The problem here is that he’s a total lout. He swears, drinks, smokes cigars, drives a death trap, and punches clowns in the face. Though he’s rough around the edges, Uncle Buck’s Buck Russell really does love his nieces and nephew. Having trouble with a teacher at school? He’ll tell her off so harshly it shatters her world. Need to eat a giant pancake? He’s your man. Got some notorious cherry popper trying to get into your pants? He’ll kidnap him and then give him brain damage by beaning him with golf balls. The dude deserved it for wearing that lame beret.

Chet Donnelly – Weird Science

There are probably better candidates for running the household in your absence than a crazed wannabe Marine. Chet Donnelly isn’t just gung-ho and stupid. He’s equally as sadistic. And this is a pretty gung-ho and stupid guy we’re talking about here. When left in charge, he bullies his younger brother, extorts money from him, and even holds a firearm to his head. Dude definitely deserved a set of elephant balls.

Mrs. Baylock – The Omen

You can’t accuse Mrs. Baylock of not caring about the boy she nannies for. If anything, she’s a little too into her job. A devout Satanist, Baylock is the perfect choice to watch over Damien, the son of Satan. These two get along like gangbusters. However, she loses points for killing Damien’s mom and attempting to kill his father. In a field like that, good references are key, so don’t kill your employers.

The first trailer for Jonah Hill‘s re-imagining of 21 Jump Street is here. All I have to say is, whoa, whoa, whoa, WHOA, whoa. WHOA!! This looks pretty funny. Like, I would leave my house to go see this funny. Granted, I shouldn’t expect anything less from Clone High and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs creators Chris Miller and Phil Lord, but Channing Tatum really holds his own here.

Silly haircuts? Check. Drug humor? Check. John Woo-style gun ballet? Check. Give the trailer a watch. I’m really looking forward to seeing more. The only part that made me sad was when Ice Cube acknowledged Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and the Twittersphere. Hopefully at some point in the movie he’ll wield an AK.

We’re just eight days away from the official start of Movember, which means you better get your ass over to the Break Movember page and sign up! Start November 1st clean shaven, then proceed to grow a killer Moustache, all while raising funds for men’s health. Last year, Movember raised $81 million for prostate research, and this year we plan on helping the break that record.

I don’t want to name any names, but some of you are probably a little skeptical about growing a moustache because you’re worried about the way you’ll look. First of all, it’s for charity, and a little hair on your lip isn’t a lot to ask for in the fight against prostate cancer. Second of all, girls don’t talk to you anyway, so how is this going to matter? Third, and perhaps most importantly, a moustache is almost guaranteed to improve your appearance. But don’t take my word for it. Scroll through the above gallery of actors who would look better with a moustache and see for yourself.

If you’re going to play in the Apatow universe, you can NOT half-ass it. Go big or go home. Well, Seth Rogen, producer and star of the film (along with Jay Baruchel) has gone big, adding frequent Apatow staples James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill, and Danny McBride to Seth and Jay Vs. The Apocalypse. As you might imagine, the film follows the titular Jay and Seth, a stoner duo waiting out the end of days.

Aside from the casting news, Rogen has said he wants to paint a pretty “offensive” view of the apocalypse, with the only opportunity for celebrities to cameo in the film coming if they’re willing to play corpses of themselves.

Dead Steve Carell? I could get behind that.

Seth and Jay Vs. The Apocalypse begins filming in February, with Rogen and Evan Goldberg co-directing.

If you’re feeling lonely this weekend and need someone to talk to, why not give Jonah Hill a call? He’s a great listener. No joke. In order to promote his comedy The Sitter, Hill will be taking calls at (917) 409-7838 but please don’t call during dinner. That’s just good manners.

What would you guys chat with Hill about? Personally, I would pretend to be held hostage and claim that Hill’s number was the only one my broken phone could reach like in Cellular. Then we could talk about Cellular and how implausibly bad it is, which would lead me to admit that this has all been a ruse. I’m not really being held hostage. Then I’d ask him if he likes any of the girls at school. It’s about this time that his reps make him hang up. (Vulture)

The haunted shadow that once was Jonah Hill is indeed joining the Ben Stiller science-fiction omedy Neighborhood Watch. The Akiva Schaffer comedy also stars Vince Vaughn and follows a group of neighborhood dads who start a neighborhood watch as a means to get away from their families and goof off. The plot kicks in when they stumble upon and must thwart a plot to destroy the world. Hill will play a sidekick to Vaughn’s character, one who always makes up things about his “rough” past.

This is the first role for Hill since he stepped into Captain America‘s Superhumanizer and set it to reverse. (THR)

The post Sleep Easy, Residents: Jonah Hill In Talks To Join ‘Neighborhood Watch’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

On the heels of news yesterday that Rosemarie DeWitt will be playing Ben Stiller’s wife in Neighborhood Watch, today we get slightly more compelling news that Jonah Hill is in talks to join the familiar tandem of Stiller and Vince Vaughn in the “everyman vs. aliens” comedy.

Certainly, the well-worn pairing of Stiller and Vaughn could use a little spice, but is Hill the right guy for the job? Hill is hilarious in his own right, but the cast and familiar premise could use a bit more than just “a funny guy;” it could use a decent dose of something different. In Moneyball, Superbad, and the upcoming The Sitter, we’ve seen Hill tackle different personas, but he’ll need to really stretch to bust the audience out of the familiar Stiller/Vaughn funk.

Neighborhood Watch will follow two suburban dads (guess who) as they stumble upon an extraterrestrial threat from which they must save their community. Huh. Might want to bring in Christopher Walken, Zach Galifianakis, and a Quentin Tarantino cameo just to be safe.

Slightly.

Why would anyone hire Jonah Hill to be a babysitter? I don’t want to judge on appearances or anything, but he’s just got one of those faces that makes him look like he is always overwhelmed. When it comes to babysitters, I want someone who looks a little more like Daniel Craig than Jonah Hill. But that wouldn’t be very funny, so the producers of The Sitter went with Jonah Hill.

In the red-band trailer, Hill plays his normal goofy self, only this time he is responsible for the lives of small children, which is actually more sad than funny if you think about it. Nah. It’s still more funny.

The Sitter boasts a pretty awesome cast featuring Sam Rockwell, JB Smoove, and Method Man, but it would appear that Hill is the star of the show. Will his good intentions keep him out of trouble? Apparently not.

NOTE: For some reason, there is a little bumper preceding the trailer that’s pretty funny and shows a Jonah Hill that’s lost about 100 pounds. You won’t miss it, but it’s worth calling out.

If you want to see some hopelessly pragmatic academics upset a bunch of baseball traditionalists by ripping out the heart, soul, and tradition of the game, then Moneyball is the film for you. Starring Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman (who actually looks like a retired baseball player), Moneyball is the story of the Oakland A’s GM Billy Beane who took a scientific approach to assembling a winning team on a budget. Sort of like Major League if the team had been assembled by MIT grads instead of scruffy Lou Brown.

The trailer does an abrupt heel-turn, going from slapstick to Friday Night Lights-style inspiration. So when you watch this trailer, start by giggling incessantly, but by the end, you’ll have a thousand-yard stare and a solitary tear running down your face. At least I did.

Higher education arouses deep nostalgia, particularly for those youthful transgressions you just can’t get away with now.  Your were not nearly as cool as you think you were during those 4.5 years you spent at junior college, which is why these college movies that never get old. Gather some great material for your own upcoming collegiate hijinks or revel in the sweet memories of those ridiculous times as that evil grin belonging to your 19-year-old self resurfaces Break out your college sweaters, grab some libations and submerge yourself in the funniness of the cinematic college experience.

 

PCU

Jeremy Piven destroys anything that comes into view with a sarcastic wit that is timeless and perfect for a college movie. Teamed up with a larger Jon Favreau, Piven gives lessons in college etiquette along with an enlightened and useful view of classes to take as a freshman that are the Rosetta Stone of education. PCU takes no hostages among the various factions at their school, demystifying the higher education experience with an almost religious fervor. Roll around in the genius of this movie until you stink of old sheets and older pizza crusts. Pay particular attention to Piven’s advice about overcoming the lack of a car.

 

Road Trip

Tom Green with a snake in Road Trip

Surpassing adolescence as the premier rite of passage into adulthood is the cross-country car trip with your buds. Road Trip tosses together an unlikely group of friends and acquaintances and sends them across America to take care of a certain mistakenly sent package to one of their girlfriends. An amusing college movie that shows off a deep love for the buddy travel genre, Road Trip bookends the journey with the universally dreaded end of term finals—the heart of the movie is the companions realizing they need to be freed from from thei high school past in order to experience the present.

 

Old School

Will Ferrell partying in Old School

A soul check of a movie because if you’re not dying of laughter by the time a certain flying tackle into a fountain that takes place, then there’s a probably a good chance you spent your childhood torturing small animals. The college frat gets a remodel when a bunch of guys well past their prime decide they can start up their own—and it steam rolls into the land of belly laughs and snorts from there. The inability to let go of their early twenties is the main center of focus here, but it’ buried under a surface of the classic bonding of miscreants and weirdoes who form the same bonds that a typical fraternity would produce. Will Ferrell is on point in Old School with Vince Vaughn flanking him as they combine into a Voltron of awesomeness making this a college movie you can watch again and again.

 

Accepted

Justin Long and Jonah Hill in Accepted

Ingenious in its concept about a fake college acceptance letter that snowballs into the need to actually build a fake university to perpetuate the lie, Accepted makes your adolescent fears of not getting in anywhere a reality and then pushes it off a cliff. Timeless is the fear of rejection and the necessity is the mother of invention and all that jazz. Seeing Lewis Black play a dean and eventual professor alone is worth seeing, not to mention you’ll garner some valuable insight into the sheep-like pursuit of higher education. Whaddaya know, you might just learn something.

 

Back to School

Rodney Dangerfield throwing a football in Back To School

Back to School doesn’t even bother saying hello before it tears into the sanctity of college with wild abandon. Rodney Dangerfield is at his peak as a father who feels out of touch with his son and chooses to attend school with him so they can share the experience. The problem being that Dangerfield plays a rich businessman and therefore knows how money makes the world go round and applies it to his classes and his free time. Quips and one-liners bounce off the scenery with enough slapstick to satisfy any type of comedy lover. Without any need for a moral anchor, this film strives to deliver as much laughter as possible while carrying along a story that’s built on a foundation of the love between a dad and his son.

Jonah Hill, Mark Wahlberg To Be Funny Cops (Again) In ‘Good Time Gang’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jonah-hill-mark-wahlberg-to-be-funny-cops-again-in-good-time-gang/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jonah-hill-mark-wahlberg-to-be-funny-cops-again-in-good-time-gang/#comments Fri, 08 Jul 2011 02:06:46 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=219345 This film is about "party-happy mercenaries." That's all you really need to know.

What a funny matchup this is going to be. I swear I don’t even need to know the premise for this film and I would pay $20 now to go see the pairing of Mark Wahlberg and Jonah Hill in Good Time Gang. Hill will act completely overwhelmed while Mark Wahlberg runs around, all defensive to everyone. This film doesn’t even need a script to work.

But it has one, anyway.

According to 24 Frames:

The film, which is set up as an independent project with the company RCR Pictures, follows two party-happy mercenaries who decide to take on a more serious case involving a terrorist, only to find their mission complicated when they discover one of them is related to the target. The film has been described by two people familiar with it as a new spin on “Letha Weapon,” with a bit more of an emphasis on the action than on the comedy.

I’m very interested to see Jonah Hill’s action and drama chops in Moneyball and 21 Jump Street, and Wahlberg has proven himself in almost every genre except anime, so this could work pretty well. The film is written by Max Landis, son of John, but no director has been selected yet.

On a final note, the film is being financed by Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, which is both awesome and hilarious at the same time. Why? This is why.

Sony has dropped the trailer for Bennett Miller‘s Moneyball. Based on the book by Michael Lewis, Brad Pitt plays Billy Beane, who, with the help on Paul De Podesta (Jonah Hill), used fancy mathematics to help the Oakland A’s not suck. Philip Seymour Hoffman makes an appearance in the trailer as A’s coach Art Howe, but he doesn’t say a damn thing. Was Art Howe a mute, or did he just employ a controversial coaching method?

The film looks like it has all the makings of a sports underdog story. There is laughter, tears, guys being chummy, chairs being thrown, and a slow-motion home run hit. Pitt handles all of these things well, except the homer. He leaves that to the guys with less attractive features.

While Cyrus may not have been a huge commercial success, it won enough critics to make the principals want to get the band back together for Pitchfork, a “dramatic thriller” that revolves around the world of indie rock. The film would reunite star Jonah Hill, and the Duplas brothers, Jay and Mark, who directed Cyrus. In the film, an indie rock musician dies in a car wreck, after which, his mother begins to hound a music writer who was critical of her son’s work.

So it’s not dumb luck that the film is named after the both famous and infamous music site. Jonah Hill would play the stuck up blogger with the $100 hair cut, the goddamn American Spirits, stupid, ironic “Go Metric” t-shirt.

Ahem.

I’m sorry. My rage got away from there. I just can’t stand hipsters.

What’s up with the recent string of films that place Hill amidst the music industry? We’ve got Forgetting Sarah Marshall, where he played an aspiring musician trying to get signed, Get Him to the Greek, in which he played an agent, and now this. Jared Leto is not going to be happy about this at all.

From Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith doing the nasty comes a brand new actress. In a world where casting directors cast different actresses to play roles, one girl said, “that’s not gonna happen anymore. I will take all the roles from now on.”

Dakota Johnson, the hot girl who didn’t realize she slept with the Napster guy in The Social Network, has been cast in three movies:

- She’s currently filming Goats, which is directed by Christopher Neil and stars David Duchovny. It’s about a teen from Tuscon who leaves home to go to an East Coast prep school. Johnson will play: some character.

- From there, Johnson will act in Five Year Engagement, which is directed by Nicholas Stoller, produced by Judd Apatow and stars Jason Segel. It’s about a newlywed couple who go through ups and downs. Johnson will play: one of the characters in the movie.

- Finally, Johnson will join the cast of 21 Jump Street, which is directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller and stars Jonah Hill. It’s about young-looking cops who go undercover as teens, in a remake of the 80s TV drama. Johnson will play: a girl rock star who gets recruited by Secret NASA to fight aliens. Okay, ya got me. She’s playing some other kind of character entirely. (Variety)

If he’ll cameo in Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, he has to cameo in the big screen version of 21 Jump Street. It’s the law.

Johnny Depp got his start on the Fox series in the 1980′s before trading it all in for pirate roles and French acid. Speculation was that he would appear in Jonah Hill‘s film in some role but it was alway up in the air whether the star would find a way to fit it into his schedule. Now it’s official.

There are no details on just what his cameo will entail, but I assume it features Depp alone at a stop light when Peter DeLuise approaches asking for a hand-out. Depp then carefully locks his door and just stares forward. Turn green, damn you! Turn!! (Coming Soon)

But seriously, one role, Dave? Pfft. Is that the best you can do? And you’re not even directing yourself. You’d better be hard at work on some kind of avant garde art installation or something. And don’t say ‘Looking a little bit like James Franco‘, because that’s a cop-out. (Deadline)

Comedian Rob Riggle (The Daily Show) is ready to torment some kids. Or rather, cops pretending to be kids. Or rather… something. We’ll see.

Riggle joins 21 Jump Street, what’s sure to be a faithfully dramatic movie version of the old Johnny Depp TV show, where undercover cops pose as teenagers in high school. He’ll play the main villain in a cast that includes Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum and Ice Cube. 21 Jump Street will be directed by the same guys who brought us Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. So again, anticipate some Oscar-worthy drama here.

Columbia Pictures is distributing. (Variety)

Will Forte continues to work, despite the illogical failure of the movie MacGruber. Seriously, he stuck celery up his butt and ran around on screen, and were the domestic box office gods grateful? Not one bit.

No stranger to animated voice work, Forte joins Fox’s Jonah Hill created comedy “Allen Gregory.” The series revolves around a brilliant child (Hill) who’s going to school with regular, non-brilliant children for the first time. Oh my. Forte will pick up a bunch of smaller roles. Hopefully one of those roles will be the part of teenage Abraham Lincoln, and the show will become about teenage Abraham Lincoln, eventually morphing into the second season of “Clone High.”

Forte will also star in the indie film Run and Jump alongside Maxine Peake and Brian F. O’Byrne. The drama, helmed by Steph Green, which I thought was “Seth Green” for a minute and was like, “what…?,” is set to film in Ireland this May. Hopefully, they’ll appreciate a good ghost sex joke between takes. (Collider)

Jonah Hill, a guy who doesn’t so much star in movies as he does hang out in front of them, might start hanging out behind the camera instead.

The actor/writer is in talks to helm The Kitchen Sink for Sony Pictures, the studio from whom he co-wrote and co-stars in 21 Jump Street. Kitchen Sink centers around high school aged zombie, vampire and human who team up to fight aliens invading their hometown. Think The Breakfast Club meets all those mash-up novels publishers are churning out. In fact, writer Oren Uziel - whose screenplay was blacklisted – got the title from the idea that everything, including the kitchen sink, was in this film. Still no word yet then on how pirates, robots and leprechauns are worked in.

I’m imagining Hill having an awkward argument with one of the actors, then they make up and have a longish hug, but somebody else walks in – sees the hug – and wonders if they’re gay. What a delightful misunderstanding. (Deadline)

Like Snoop Dogg, there are apparently two Ice Cubes. There’s the family friendly Ice Cube behind the sitcom “Are We There Yet” and movies like The Longshots. That’s the Ice Cube I’d like to keep in the freezer forever. Then there’s the N.W.A. veteran gangsta rapper who makes horrible movies like Lottery Ticket, but that’s the real Ice Cube, as far as I’m concerned. Well, looks like my man Friday has more projects in the pipeline.

Mr. Cube is in talks to be part of 21 Jump Street, based on the old Johnny Depp show that made him a dreamy teen idol, much to his emo-embarrassment. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs) want him to play the precinct captain, cast alongside Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. I kinda wish they’d ask him to play one of the undercove high school officers, cause he’s 41 and that would be very, very ridiculous.

In addition, Ice Cube is shopping around a movie he wrote, and would like to direct / star in. Will he also run craft services on Chrome and Paint, a gritty drama about South LA’s custom car culture? Probably not, but it’d be funny if Ice Cube didn’t trust anyone else to make potato salad, so he made it himself. Who would stop him? Hell, I wouldn’t even mess with the family friendly Ice Cube.

Channing Tatum is going to star in the new movie version of 21 Jump Street, written by and co-starring Jonah Hill. This will be a comedy version of the young cops infiltratin high school, as if the original series could be taken seriously. Tatum promises that the Hill script is crazy.

“I promise you, it will be the most insane ride that you will ever go on,” Tatum said at the press junket for his latest film, The Eagle. “It’s the most ridiculous script I’ve ever read in my entire life.”

Then of course Hill always likes to improvise, so who knows what’ll be in the movie after they’re done. “We’re going to go crazy on this movie and I hope that I can just keep up with the kid,” Tatum said.

Everyone is still gunning for a Johnny Depp cameo, none more so than Tatum himself. Depp has said he’s willing, so it’s only a matter of scheduling him in between Pirates and Tim Burton movies. Tatum knows the scene Depp would appear in.

“If and when it does happen, it’ll be crazy, as true to form and as brilliant as he is. It’ll be true to form to him for sure. We have an idea but it’ll be a surprise, I’ll tell you that.”
