Pam Grier co-stars on the ABC comedy Bless This Mess. Speaking with reporters after the Bless This Mess panel for the Television Critics Association, Grier discussed the biopic about her life that is in the works. Given her storied career from Roger Corman movies to landmark black action heroine movies like Coffy and Foxy Brown to a career in television drama, a movie about this legend seems like a no-brainer.
Here’s what we found out from Grier about the movie, currently titled Foxy: My Life in Three Acts.

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 »
Larry Crowne, the second film in which Tom Hanks worked behind the camera as director, is one that I’ve mostly passed over in the last few months. It stars Hanks as a guy who loses his job and goes to community college as part of an attempt to rebuild his future. He makes new friends, joins a scooter gang, and falls for one of his teachers, played by Julia Roberts. (Yep, it’s a big-screen alternate version of Community.)
Tom Hanks tweeted out a link to the film’s second trailer, which provides the first look at George Takei‘s work in the film, among other things. Check it out below. Read More »

On March 25th, we had the opportunity to talk with most of the stars of Grindhouse. We will be posting the interviews leading up until the film’s release on April 6th 2007.
We sat down with Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Rent, 25th Hour) to talk about her role as Abernathy in Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof. We talked to Rosario about her change from a tom boy to a girlie girl, Kevin Smith’s upcoming romantic comedy, her aspirations to work with Rob Zombie, Eli Roth and Catherine Hardwicke, her comic book series O.C.T.: Occult Crimes Taskforce, and the film she is producing based on the book. But for the most part Rosario hijacked the interview to tell us about her first producing effort, Descent, which will make it’s premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. Dawson was very excited about her new film, so we let her do most of the talking.
