Lee Child Comments on Next Jack Reacher Film

jack reacher sequel update

Jack Reacher is almost certainly going to find himself alongside a teen girl in his next movie. The first film adaptation of the long-running novel series by Lee Child was only a modest hit, but a sequel is in development based on the 18th Reacher novel, Never Go Back. In that book, Jack Reacher returns to the HQ of his former Army unit, only to find that the current commander has been relieved of her post as Reacher is implicated in an ugly chain of events. And there’s a young woman who could tie to the guy’s past. Now we’ve got a Jack Reacher sequel update: director Christopher McQuarrie probably will not return, and Child talks about the reasons for choosing this particular novel as the source. Read More »

I Saw The Devil - Kevin Tong - Header

The I Saw the Devil remake is on. Almost a year after we heard two producers boarded the project, a new report says they’ve found their creative team. The team behind You’re Next and The Guest, director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett, are on board to write and direct the American remake of the 2010 Kim Jee-woon revenge thriller. Read More »

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in Serena

For a while there, it seemed like you couldn’t get a movie made without Bradley Cooper or Jennifer Lawrence getting involved, often at the same time. The pair shot three films together in about two years: David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, and Susanne Bier‘s Serena.

The first two of those have already opened to great acclaim, but the third remained stuck in post-production for quite a long time. It’s only now making its way to theaters, and not even U.S. theaters at that. Thankfully, it looks worth the wait. The first Serena trailer has just hit, and you can check it out after the jump.

rant movie

Chuck Palahniuk is one of those authors who is fortunate enough  to sell the rights to seemingly every book he’s ever written. In some cases, like with Fight Club, that works out. In other cases, the resulting film may be less successful (say, maybe, Choke) and most of the time, the films simply never come together. So when a new book of his is optioned, it’s easy not to immediately get excited.

Still, if that option is by a very motivated and talented person, that’s definitely a positive factor. That’s what happening now. James Franco, the popular actor and burgeoning director, has reportedly purchased the rights to Palahniuk’s 2008 novel, Rant. Rant is a fictionalized oral history of a crazed serial killer in the future. Read more about the Rant movie below. Read More »

‘Housebound’ Trailer: House Arrest in a Haunted Home

Housebound trailer

Somehow we’ve missed posting the trailer for Housebound, and that’s a huge oversight. The New Zealand film stormed SXSW when it debuted there this past March, and is open in NZ now. The film also hits Fantastic Fest in the next couple weeks, and opens in the US in October. It’s easy to see why people at tests have loved the film, as this trailer makes Housebound out to be a hell of a ride. The film follows a young woman (Morgana O’Reilly) who returns home on house arrest, only to discover that more than just her family might be living in the house.  Read More »

Phoenix trailer

Christian Petzold, director of Barbara, had a new film premiere in Toronto this week, and the people who love Phoenix really love it. Called a Hitchcockian thriller set in post-WWII Berlin, the film features Nina Hoss as a concentration camp survivor who goes to great lengths to find her husband, from whom she was separated before her internment. But he could have a darker role in her wartime experience than she originally believed. Check out the Phoenix trailer below. Read More »

Man in the High Castle TV series

The Man in the High Castle is among the more well-known Philip K. Dick novels, perhaps because it explores a premise many people have perhaps mused upon at some point in their lives: what if Germany and Japan won World War II? The novel is set in the early ’60s in an America that is occupied in the east by Germany and in the west by Japan, with a stretch of “free” land in the middle. Years of development attempts have so far failed to yield a TV or film adaptation of the novel, but now Amazon is pulling together a Man in the High Castle TV series.

Luke Kleintank is playing a new character called Joe Blake in the pilot, while Alexa Davalos (Clash Of The Titans, Mob City) has just won the lead female role, a slightly altered version of Juliana Frink from the novel.
