Chad Stahelski and David Leitch John Wick

Last week we learned John Wick 2 was gearing up to shoot this fall, with one big catch: Chad Stahelski would be helming the project solo, without his original John Wick co-director David Leitch. That raised the question of what, exactly, Leitch was going to be up to instead, and now we have our answer.

Leitch has been set to direct The Coldest City, a Cold War spy thriller starring Charlize Theron. The project was first announced at Cannes, but at the time the plan was for Leitch and Stahelski to make The Coldest City together. Read all about the David Leitch Coldest City news after the jump.

Bone Tomahawk trailer

This past summer, Kurt Russell got caught up in one of the biggest blockbusters of the year with a supporting role in Furious 7, and this Christmas he’s reteaming with Quentin Tarantino for the anticipated western The Hateful Eight. But before that, we’ll get to see him saddle up in a different western as another bad ass cowboy.

Bone Tomahawk sees Kurt Russell as a sheriff who sets out to save some kidnapped settlers from a group of cannibals, and somehow this isn’t a straight-up grindhouse movie. Hot on the heels of the film’s premiere at Fantastic Fest this past week, the first Bone Tomahawk trailer has arrived. Read More »

Steven Soderbergh Haywire

It’s only been two years since Steven Soderbergh left behind filmmaking. Ever since “retiring,” though, Soderbergh has found a more than welcoming home in television. The last movie we saw from him was for TV, HBO’s Behind the Candelabra, and he’s about to debut the second season of his show The Knick. The news of an early Soderbergh retirement was saddening, to say the least, but understandable. Read his current thoughts on retirement and TV after the jump.

Evolution review

(This review is based upon a viewing of the film at Fantastic Fest 2015.)
