The actor had been interested in directing for a while, and he finally took his chance with this adaptation, which had been in the works for over a decade.

The past decade has been kind to Bryan Cranston as he has evolved from a scene-stealing character actor into one of the most celebrated performers of his generation, winning accolades (and Emmys) for his work on Breaking Bad before snagging a Tony award and an Oscar nomination. He’s essentially earned himself a lifetime pass, the chance to pursue whatever roles he wants and take on any challenges that excite him.
And now he’s chosen to play a floating blue head that lives in a glass tube and mentors a bunch of teenagers with attitude in the fine art of defending Earth from alien marauders. Yes, Bryan Cranston has been cast as Zordon in the upcoming Power Rangers movie. You keep on doing you, Mr. Cranston.

After delivering the bumbling comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop, director Steve Carr is heading into the world of young adults with an Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, an adaptation of the book of the same name by James Patterson. With flairs of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Matilda and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, the film looks like it’s perfectly geared towards the target audience who read the books, but with some familiar comedic talent to make it a little more appealing to adults.

After picking up the rights to the Chaos Walking series of young adult books back in 2011, there has been very little development on getting Patrick Ness‘ bestselling story to the big screen. Adaptation and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind writer Charlie Kaufman was hired to script the project in 2012 and director Robert Zemeckis was circling the film in 2013. But since then, we haven’t heard anything. But that changes today.
Edge of Tomorrow and Mr. and Mrs. Smith director Doug Liman is currently in talks to direct Chaos Walking, which is still set up at Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment. Find out more about the Chaos Walking movie after the jump. Read More »

Sicario isn’t the kind of film that demands a sequel, but there’s no denying the horrifying allure of the world it depicts. Even when you’re disgusted by what’s on screen, you simply cannot look away. You’re drawn into the nightmare. The story of America’s war on drugs, and the story of how the drug trade has terrorized and decimated entire communities in Mexico, is bigger than a single movie.
So there’s plenty of material for a Sicario sequel to dive into and now that sequel has a title: Soldado, the Spanish word for soldier. It also has a new director, since Sicario‘s Denis Villeneuve has officially moved on.

In recent years, Bruce Willis has been sleepwalking his way through a lot of action thrillers. That’s truly a shame since we know he’s still capable of doing great work in movies like Looper and Moonrise Kingdom. Sadly, a new bank heist movie called Marauders doesn’t appear to be one of his better choices, even if the story does have some intriguing elements to it.
Christopher Meloni (Law and Order: SVU), Adrian Grenier (Entourage) and Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) play the FBI agents investigating a recent bank robbery, and while evidence points to the bank’s owner (Bruce Willis) being involved, there’s much more to the case than meets the eye.

With Disney CEO Bob Iger thinking that Marvel movies could go on forever, and Transformers movies planned to the end of the decade, it should come as no surprise to hear that Lionsgate hopes their revamped Power Rangers movie will be the start of a new franchise. But Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer may be just a little over zealous with his estimates for how many movies they’ll make featuring the imported super team. In a conference call with analysts today, the CEO said:
“We are really, really excited about the ‘Power Rangers’ movie. We could see doing five or six or seven.”
Lord have mercy on us all. Read More »
