You probably forgot that Vin Diesel has been part of an effort to develop a big-screen revival of the cop TV series Kojak, but Diesel and Universal haven’t forgotten. The show, which originally starred Telly Savalas and was a great series in its time, isn’t exactly a property people have been clamoring to see revived. With Diesel’s other high-profile projects, from Guardians of the Galaxy to the Fast/Furious series, and even Riddick, something like Kojak is easy to overlook.
But Universal still plans to make the movie, or at least will continue to develop it. The studio has just pulled a new writer into the fold, showing that Kojak still has life. Read More »

When you’re as a big a fan of Entourage as I am, 20 minutes with the show’s creator isn’t enough time. I could spend weeks picking the brain of Doug Ellin, who wrote and directed the Entourage movie in addition to creating and running the show for eight seasons, but 20 minutes would have to do.
Some of our talk you’ve already seen in my comprehensive look back at the career of faux-movie star Vincent Chase, but below we have the rest of it. We talked about a huge number of topics such as the way fake movies in Entourage have now become reality, the timeline between the movie and the show, Sex and the City comparisons, the new opening credits, favorite episodes, best cameos and nods to the show, how the film changed during the screenwriting process, the legendary Aquaman Variety ad and even a super meta joke in the film he didn’t notice until I asked him about it.
If you like Entourage, I think you’ll really like this interview. I know I loved conducting it. Read More »
Though it might seem frivolous and forgettable on the surface, an Entourage movie is actually quite complex. At least for me. The simplest way to talk about is this. Imagine watching a 4 day-long movie. Once you got to the final 90 minutes, odds are you’d have a much more personal and vested interest in the material than someone who watched the final 90 minutes alone. Such is the blessing, and curse, of Entourage.
It’s also a show that comes with ton of baggage both from its long run on HBO as well as the current public perception of it. And now, there’s a movie of this show that’s been off the air for several years. Below, we’ll look at the Entourage movie from multiple perspectives and see that it’s a movie worth discussing in more ways than you probably think. Read More »
The career of mega-star actor Vincent Chase can be traced back to a single word: “Mentos.” Mega-agent turned studio head Ari Gold saw the fresh-faced young Queens actor in a commercial and instantly knew he’d be a star. Fast-forward 15 years and Chase, who has become one of the most notorious, controversial and famous actors in the world, is starring and directing in the first film Gold has put together as studio head. Hyde is a modern day, cyber retelling of the Jekyll and Hyde story that has gone way over budget for the first time director and threatened the career not only of Gold, but Chase as well.
How did Chase get to this point? How does an actor in a Mentos commercial become one of the most polarizing and popular presences in Hollywood? We’ll tell you, going from his first major studio film Head On, to his Sundance darling Queens Boulevard, his James Cameron mega-hit Aquaman, moving into a producer role for Medellin, a Martin Scorsese driven-comeback in Gatsby and so much more. Join us for the insider ride through the entire Hollywood career of mega-star turned first time director Vincent Chase. Read More »
