Could We Get More ’24′ Without Kiefer Sutherland?

24 Live Another Day

Kiefer Sutherland has indicated that he may be done with Jack Bauer, even as Fox keeps insisting there could be more 24. Well, it turns out those two statements aren’t mutually exclusive — because Fox is considering making the next installment without him.

That said, Fox is hopeful Sutherland will want to return eventually. The latest pitch includes an opportunity for Sutherland to come back, should he change his mind. More on the possibility of a 24 without Kiefer Sutherland after the jump. Read More »

Now You See Me

Now You See Me turned out to be a sleeper hit in the summer of 2013, so the Four Horsemen have reunited for Now You See Me 2. Well, three of the Four Horsemen are, anyway. Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, and Woody Harrelson are all back for the sequel, while Lizzy Caplan has replaced Isla Fisher as the female lead.

Also not returning? Eisenberg’s unruly mop from the first film. In the first cast photo from Now You See Me 2, his hair is closely cropped — presumably because he’s just come off of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Hit the jump for your Now You See Me 2 first look, also featuring Mark Ruffalo, Daniel Radcliffe, and Michael Caine.

Star Wars 7 trailer characters

Last week, Latino Review ran an article about next trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuting with Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, since you read /Film, you already knew that because we broke that news a month prior. What our friends at Latino Review mentioned that we didn’t though was the trailer would include footage of Han, Luke, Leia and Chewbacca. That was news to us.

You see, the source who tipped us off to the new trailer told us something almost totally different. They said the original trilogy characters would not be featured in the marketing because Lucasfilm wants to keep their specific roles as secret as possible. Plus, with so many new characters, worlds, ships, etc. to sell people on, they don’t want to show too much familiar stuff. They want it to be Star Wars, but a new Star Wars, like the first teaser trailer. Familiar yet different.

Our source never said we wouldn’t see the characters at all. It was just strongly implied they would be in the background. Could this strategy, one we heard about in late November, have changed? Could Disney have decided to put the original trilogy characters in the marketing? Like most things, the truth will most likely be found in the middle. Read More »

Darabont Won't Direct The Huntsman

We hope you weren’t too excited about the idea of Frank Darabont directing the Snow White and the Huntsman prequel, because that is no longer happening. The movie is happening, just not with Darabont as part of the package. The director dropped out of the endeavor this week. So now there’s The Huntsman, as the movie is called, with Chris Hemsworth set to return, but no Snow White (originally played by Kristen Stewart). But despite the fact that Darabont won’t direct The Huntsman there is good news, as a new lady villain is in the wings, with Emily Blunt in talks to play her. Read More »

‘Gremlins’ Reboot May Be Dead

Gremlins reboot dead

Gremlins is a property that has been on the “maybe/maybe-not” list for a reboot or remake over the last few years. As a great example of animatronic effects, the idea of seeing all-CG (or mostly-CG) gremlins isn’t very appealing, and the relatively safe tone of big-budget filmmaking now isn’t the sort that lends itself to a great new Gremlins movie.

Still, screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith has been attached to a project that was supposedly fast-tracked at Warner Bros. last year. We haven’t heard more about it, so what happened? Grahame-Smith says it basically “ran out of steam.” Is it too early to say “Gremlins Reboot Dead!”? Possibly, but this is good news for now. Read More »
