Hide your wooden stakes and put the garlic back in the cupboard, let’s make buddies with some baddies! It’s time to coffin-cuddle your favorite bloodthirsty fiend with five Friendly Vampire…
Hollywood Boulevard is a much safer place with these folks behind bars.
One of the most of popular sub-genres is drug wars movies from the 90’s. The realism, action, and seemingly glamorous lifestyle of the drug lords still attract viewers decades later….
How did these Hollywood types get to be so great? I’ll tell you how. Unlike me, who wanders through life like a moron, they set goals and they stick to them. And with New Year’s Eve only a day away, we thought we’d ask the stars about their resolutions for 2011.
Despite being embroiled in a metric ass ton of legal trouble, Wesley Snipes has one tale that he still needs to tell. Snipes has begun shooting Karate Dad Master Daddy. Whatever that means. He describes it as a multi-racial action comedy that is a combination of Kung Fu Hustle and Meet The Parents. Once again, whatever that means.
The real news is that the film will happen around Chuck Norris (Chuck Norris does not appear in films, films appear around him). Snipes is also pulling a Sly Stallone and getting a bunch of irrelevant action stars on board. The other karate dudes who agreed to take part are Chiba, Frazier, Gracie, Hung, Inosanto, Jaa, Rhee, Kim, Lee Mosely, Bob Wall, Rampage, Anderson Silva, and Ron Van Cleff. Dance crews Rock Steady, Jabbawakkies, and Quest Crew will also appear. That's a good start, but you'll need to assemble a much larger army of fighters and streets-stepper-upper-2ers if you hope to defeat Chuck Norris. Chuck Norris doesn't step up 2 da streets. The streets rise to meet his foot. (Variety)
Once in a blue moon, a passion project comes together with all the right elements and you know it's going to blow people's minds. Havana Heat is that project. I don't know who called in what favors to make this a reality, but Joey Lawrence and Wesley Snipes are starring in the indie actioner for director Dean Hamilton, who's best known for his work on Blonde and Blonder.
"Havana Heat" centers on a Homeland Security agent based at Guantanomo who's murdered while undercover in Havana, where betrayal and intrigue take place against a backdrop of crumbling colonial architecture and vintage American cars.
Betrayal and intrigue and Lawrence and Snipes. That's either a film I can't wait to see or a law firm I don't want to be represented by. Shooting starts in November at an undisclosed location, but we've been assured all of the permits are in order. The red tape regarding Snipes in public places is ridiculous. (Variety)
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.
