Jessie Usher, who plays the lead role in the Starz series Survivor’s Remorse, is now set to play one of the primary characters in the Independence Day sequel, which Roland Emmerich will direct for release almost exactly 20 years after the drop of the original film. Usher will play Dylan Dubrow, who in the original movie was the young stepson of Will Smith’s character, and as such he’s probably either the Independence Day sequel star, or one of them.
UPDATE: In addition, director Roland Emmerich confirmed two names who were previously mentioned for the film: Liam Hemsworth and Jeff Goldblum. Read More »

Bryan Singer is about to tackle yet another X-Men movie for release in 2016, but after that, he might stay in the world of sci-fi for a different sort of film. 20th Century Fox has just picked up the rights to The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, based on a novel by legendary sci-fi writer Robert A. Heinlein. It’s unclear if Singer would direct or produce but Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern) is writing the script for the adaptation, which will be retitled Uprising.
The 1966 novel has come close to becoming a movie a few times but rights recently reverted back to Heinlein’s estate. Fox then swooped in to grab the property. Read more about The Moon is a Harsh Mistress movie below. Read More »

The new Steven Spielberg film, which reunites the director with star Tom Hanks, was referred to early on as the “Untitled Cold War Thriller,” and then shot under the title St. James Place. But when released in theaters, the movie will be called Bridge of Spies — a more colorful title, to be sure, and one which has its own place in cold war history.
Additionally, John Williams has been confirmed to provide the score for the film, marking the latest collaboration in his long-running partnership with Spielberg. Read More »

Every zombie story needs that scene, when the characters find out the world they know has changed forever. The scene when the dead rise from the grave or, at the very least, the characters see their first zombie. That familiarity makes this scene a good barometer to distinguish zombie projects and is probably why it was chosen as the first clip from Zach Lipovsky‘s Dead Rising: Watchtower, the online adaptation of the popular zombie video game series.
In the clip, we see the some of the main characters (played by Jesse Metcalfe and Keegan Connor Tracy) shockingly discover that zombies are about to mess stuff up in a big way. There’s some slick camera work and violence giving a nice tease of what to expect when Dead Rising: Watchtowers hits Crackle on March 27. Check out the first Dead Rising movie clip below. Read More »
