Serkis Rise of Apes

Matt Reeves has been shooting Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, his sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, for a little while. (Don’t think too much about the prequel/sequel status of these films as they relate to the original Planet of the Apes films — thats just a wormhole.) While we don’t have a photo from the film at this point, the tardy “start of production” announcement does come with news that Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans) and Enrique Murciano (Traffic) have roles in the film, and also reveals more plot info than we’ve previously known.

I’ll say this for Jonathan Liebesman‘s Clash of the Titans sequel Wrath of the Titans: the movie really doesn’t look to skimp on the creatures and mythical monsters. Not only that, but it gives the returning Sam Worthington a haircut that is really worthy of the legacy of Harry Hamlin’s style from the 1981 Clash of the Titans. (Not sure that’s a good thing, actually.)

Anyway, the sequel has Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes reprising their roles as Zeus and Hades, and adds Toby Kebbell and Rosamund Pike, both of whom get a couple good shots in this new trailer. But most of what this new look affers is monsters, monsters, monsters. Which is a big part of what we really need from a movie like this, after all. Check it out below. Read More »

‘Wrath of the Titans’ Theatrical Trailer

Does Warner Bros. not care if anyone watches the trailer for Wrath of the Titans? Less than an hour after the trailer debut for The Dark Knight Rises — the most anticipated trailer release in many months — and at the same time as Fox’s first look at Prometheus, the studio has also dropped the first footage of the sequel to Clash of the Titans.

Wrath of the Titans looks like it has gone all-out to include as much stuff as possible, but that may just be how the trailer is cut. Check it out below. Read More »

At this point I’d be lying if I claimed I knew what to expect from the live-action version of Akira that Jaume Collet-Serra will direct early next year. The film is budgeted in the $90m range — not a lot to create a post-apocalypse future version of Manhattan in which motorcycle gangs do battle as a precursor to psychically-powered mayhem. We know that Garrett Hedlund is playing Kaneda, a biker gang leader whose brother, Tetsuo, is wounded and finds his own psychic power awakened, leading to madness.

We don’t know who will play Tetsuo, but a new list of actors testing for the role includes surprising names like Michael Pitt, Alden Ehrenreich and Paul Dano. Read More »

Screenwriters Hired For Third ‘Clash of the Titans’

Warner Bros. is hedging its bets with the Clash of the Titans series. The first film — well, the first film in this current incarnation of the series — was directed by Louis Leterrier and earned nearly half a billion dollars worldwide despite becoming a poster child for terrible post-converted 3D. That was enough to put another movie into production right quick.

The sequel, Wrath of the Titans, is directed by Jonathan Liebesman, and written by Dan Mazeau, David Leslie Johnson, and Steven Knight with story credit given to Greg Berlanti. Warners must be happy with how that sequel, now in post-production, is shaping up, because Mazeau and Johnson have been hired to write a provisional Clash of the Titans 3. Read More »

Nicole Kidman‘s Blossom Films and Olympus Films have teamed up to acquire the movie rights for Kevin Wilson‘s bestselling book The Family Fang, which they plan to develop as a starring vehicle for Kidman. The two companies previously collaborated on Rabbit Hole, for which Kidman received a Best Actress Oscar nomination.

Wilson’s debut novel centers around a couple of performance artists who regularly incorporate their unwilling children into their bizarre acts. Years later, misfortune prompts the now-grown son and daughter to return home, where they find their parents gearing up for one final masterpiece. [Deadline]

After the jump, New Line pulls together an intriguing shortlist for Burt Wonderstone‘s female lead, and The East‘s terrorist organization gets one more member.

The more people get cast in Zal Batmanglij‘s The East, the more interesting it sounds. The latest addition is the always excellent Patricia Clarkson, who’ll play the boss of co-writer and star Brit Marling.

The thriller revolves around an agent (Marling) from a private security firm who is tasked with infiltrating a terrorist group called The East. Once she’s in, however, she finds herself falling for the group’s leader, probably because he looks exactly like Alexander Skarsgard. Other recent additions to the cast have been Ellen Page as Skarsgard’s ex and another member of the organization, and Toby Kebbell as a doctor who takes a tainted drug and develops Parkinson’s-like symptoms.

After the jump, Octavia Spencer goes to Vegas and Michael Angarano goes home.
