'Fast and Furious 7' hasn't made a lot of noise lately, even though it starts shooting this fall and is scheduled to hit theaters next July. We don't even know if Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will be done filming 'Hercules' in time to appear in the film. But we have just gotten the first big new casting news, as UFC star Ronda Rousey is in negotiations to join the cast.
It's been over twenty years since Brad Pitt last worked with Ridley Scott, which is surprising as it was Pitt's work in 1991's 'Thelma and Louise' that launched him into superstardom. The duo have reunited for 'The Counselor,' and in anticipation of a new trailer hitting tomorrow, three clips from the movie have been released.
The last we heard about the attempted remake of 'Akira' was that the film stalled out in development, with Jaume Collet-Serra leaving the project because of budget disputes, and with Garret Hedlund attached to star, but things have mostly been quiet for the last year. Well, the project is back on and Collet-Serra is in talks to return to the director's chair.
Though 'Pacific Rim' may be touted as one of the bigger disappointments of summer based on its domestic gross, it looks like international has saved the film and then some. After opening on Wednesday in China to the tune of nine million dollars, 'Pacific Rim 2' talk is back on.
It's been almost a year since Len Wiseman was announced as the director of the new version of 'The Mummy,' and there hasn't been much news about the project since. So it's no surprise that Wiseman is now off the project, and the producers are looking for another helmer.
Though we aren't yet into August, the summer movie season is winding down. '2 Guns' opens this Friday, and it stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, but it's hard to compare it to the big event films like 'Iron Man 3' or 'Man of Steel.' Maybe that's why there's a brand new trailer for the film to help get people excited for its release in four days.
Though we've seen a number of young-adult novels translated to the big screen only to flop ('Beautiful Creatures,' 'The Host') and may yet still (we're curious to see what happens with 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones'), it's still considered a hot genre for adaptations. So it's no surprise Disney wants to bring the YA hit 'Artemis Fowl' to the big screen. What is surprising is that it's being produced by Robert De Niro and Harvey Weinstein.
