But the devil is in the details, and this new Berg and Wahlberg collaboration will also feature two versatile fighters: former MMA fighter Ronda Rousey, and Iko Uwais of The Raid. Read More »

It took Ronda Rousey all of fourteen seconds to defend her championship by winning her bantamweight title fight against Cat Zingano during UFC 184. Afterwards, it didn’t take Rousey much longer to sign for her next film. She’ll fight alongside The Raid star Iko Uwais in Mile 22, a buddy thriller that will hopefully only team up Rousey and Uwais after giving them a chance to show down in a scene or two. Read More »

Here’s one final Expendables 3 trailer to make the wait easier, and this clip has plenty of action from Patrick Hughes’ sequel. Sylvester Stallone returns as the leader of a paramilitary gang, and this time the crew stares down a one-time comrade turned arms dealer played by Mel Gibson. It’s all action, and the roster of stars old and new is so huge that the returning cast members barely fit in the trailer. Read More »

The Entourage movie doesn’t open for 15 months, but production is well underway. In fact, the film opens on the same day as Jurassic World, and Entourage will be in the can before director Colin Trevorrow shoots a foot of film on the dinosaur sequel.

He’s put up plenty of images of his principal cast – Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrera, Kevin Dillon and Jeremy Piven – but also revealed a slew of cameos and plenty of returning stars who played key roles in the eight seasons of the hit HBO show.

Briefly: When fighter Gina Carano successfully leapt from the ring to the big screen in films like Haywire and Fast & Furious 6, she helped establish a path for other women to do the same.
Now Ronda Rousey, who is already set for a role in The Expendables 3, is in talks for Fast and Furious 7. The Olympic medalist is the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and has been Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Champion. She’ll play “a minor supporting role that will showcase her fighting skills.”
James Wan is directing, taking over from Justin Lin, and the film will see the returns of cast members such as Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. The film will shoot in Atlanta later this year. [Variety]
