As soon as Robert Rodriguez finished filming Machete Kills, he jumped right into his next movie. That movie is Sin City 2, aka Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which began filming on Monday with two actresses familiar with the genre. Jaime King is returning for the sequel, playing the sister of her character from the first movie, and Jamie Chung is playing the role Devon Aoki had in the 2005 original.
Rodriguez is co-directing once again with Frank Miller, who wrote the original comics and, once again, the movie will consist of multiple stories. However, unlike the original movie, one of the stories in the sequel is brand new and written specifically for the film. A Dame to Kill For is scheduled for release October 4, 2013.

RZA‘s feature film The Man With the Iron Fists has been a long time coming (we wrote about it in ’08 and ’09) but the movie, co-written by RZA and Eli Roth, directed by and starring RZA, and presented by Quentin Tarantino, is close on the horizon.
We saw the first official image from the film, complete with a flying eyeball, earlier this week, and now we’ve got the first trailer. Check out the red-band clip, which is full of swirling splatters of blood, below. Read More »
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a plucky, intense bike messenger in David Koepp‘s Premium Rush, and Columbia has released a new trailer for the film in advance of its August opening. The studio dropped a fairly middling trailer last year that opened with a dodgy voice-over, and this version thankfully eliminates most of that. This is also a more fast-paced look at the movie, with an emphasis on action. Check it out below. Read More »

Statistically speaking, flying is actually one of the safest ways to travel — you’re much, much more likely to die in a car accident, for example — but you wouldn’t know it from the number of movies that involve horrible things happening aboard an airplane. The latest of these is 7500, a paranormal thriller from The Grudge helmer Takashi Shimizu. Ryan Kwanten, Amy Smart, Jerry Ferrara, Leslie Bibb, and Jamie Chung star as passengers and crew en route from Los Angeles to Tokyo when they begin to notice odd occurrences within the cabin. Watch the first teaser after the jump.

Sony and Columbia have evidently decided that David Koepp‘s bicycle chase thriller Premium Rush is going to do well with a summer audience. The film has been bumped back from January 13, 2012 to August 24, 2012. There’s nothing else on that date right now, possibly because late August is a summer dead zone. But perhaps Koepp’s film can build an audience there.
Premium Rush stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an impetuous bike messenger in New York City who finds himself becoming an object of great attention for the NYPD after he makes a package pickup. Hot on his heels is Michael Shannon as a cop with a violent temper — seeing Shannon chew some scenery is probably the best reason to check out the film. And Jamie Chung plays another daredevil messenger.
If you missed the trailer when we ran it in September, you can hit the jump to check it out now. Read More »

Clint Eastwood cast Beyonce Knowles as the female lead in his A Star is Born remake some time ago, but he’s been searching for someone to take on the male lead. Now it’s being reported that his top choice for the part is Leonardo DiCaprio, who worked with Eastwood on the biopic J. Edgar. DiCaprio is just the latest of several candidates who have been named for the part over the past couple of years — Russell Crowe, Gerard Butler, and Will Smith are among the actors once rumored for or attached to the film. DiCaprio would presumably be playing the role of Norman Maine, a fading star with a drinking problem who helps to launch the young starlet’s (Knowles) career.
DiCaprio isn’t the first actor I would’ve thought of for the part, but I’m all the more intrigued for it. We already know DiCaprio can do gloomy and brooding, but how often have we seen him do gloomy and brooding while surrounded by singing and dancing?
Eastwood’s A Star is Born is scheduled for a 2012 release. DiCaprio and Eastwood’s next collaboration, J. Edgar, will open later this year. [Deadline]
After the jump, the Sixth Sense kid is now old enough to play college students, and Jamie Chung signs up for a gritty indie.

Jamie Chung has two big Legendary Pictures films behind her this year, Sucker Punch and The Hangover Part II, and now (probably not as a response) she’s going indie for the film Knife Fight. That’s the one starring Rob Lowe where he plays “a political crisis manager who specializes in playing hardball on behalf of scandal-plagued clients.” Jamie Chung will be his savvy assistant. Quite a few other people are in talks for roles, too: Julie Bowen, Connie Britton, Jennifer Morrison, Rebecca Mader and Titus Welliver. Bill Guttentag directs and co-wrote the script with Chris Lehane; the film will shoot next month in San Francisco, and a release is planned for October 2012, timed around the next US Presidential election.
Before Knife Fight makes it to theaters, Jamie Chung will be in Premium Rush, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and was written and directed by David Koepp. [Variety]
