The Crow reboot delay

The big screen reboot of The Crow just can’t catch a break. Shortly after losing lead actor Jack Huston, pre-production on the film has now stalled, presumably due to the recent filing of bankruptcy by Relativity, the company behind the project.

At the time Huston left The Crow, it wasn’t clear if scheduling difficulties or creative differences caused him to leave, but maybe he just saw the writing on the wall and knew this project was going to have some trouble moving forward.

Jack Huston the Crow

Something is really giving Relativity a hard time as it tries to assemble a reboot of The Crow. The film, based on the comic series by James O’Barr which led to the 1994 film starring Brandon Lee, has been in development for years. A dizzying array of directors and actors has been attached to the project in that time. The latest in a very long line of talent departures has just taken place as intended star Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) has departed due to “scheduling issues.” Read More »

Andrea Riseborough in Oblivion

The Crow remake has been a revolving door of talent over the past couple of years, with various actors and filmmakers coming and going over the years. As of right now, director Corin Hardy (The Hallow) and star Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) are the latest combo to try and tackle the project.

And miraculously, it seems they’re actually making some forward progress. Andrea Riseborough has just signed on on to play the villain. More details on The Crow Andrea Riseborough casting after the jump.  Read More »

new Fletch movie

The years-long quest to make a new Fletch movie took a step forward this week as the property landed at Relativity Studios after Warner Bros. decided to let it go. Jason Sudeikis is in talks to play the title character, as he was when the film was housed at Warner Bros., but presumably the change to a new studio means a little new momentum for ol’ Fletch.

Masterminds

Zach Galifianakis seems like a smart guy. Most of the characters he plays in the movies do not. So when he stars in a movie called Masterminds, you can probably guess that the title is being a bit sarcastic.

Directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite), Masterminds is an action-comedy based on the true story of the 1997 Loomis Fargo heist. Galifianakis’ David Ghantt makes off with $17 million, making this the largest cash robbery in the U.S. at the time.

Now his challenge is trying to get away with it — and that task seems easier said than done once you see his motley crew of associates including Kristen WiigOwen Wilson, and Jason Sudeikis. Check out the first Masterminds trailer after the jump.

Jack Huston the Crow

The remake of The Crow has turned into a revolving door for talent, with a parade of writers, directors, and actors being attached to the film in various capacities before falling off again. Most recently, F. Javier Gutiérrez was going to direct, with Luke Evans starring. But Gutiérrez fell away, and Corin Hardy signed on to direct. Not long afterwards Luke Evans also moved on, due in part to the change in scheduling and story approach that came with the director change.

Now Jack Huston, perhaps best known for his role as a scarred assassin on Boardwalk Empire, is in early talks to star. Read More »
