The upcoming The Grudge remake may be in a bit of trouble. Taka lchise, producer of the original Japanese Grudge (Ju-on) franchise, has filed a breach of contract lawsuit, claiming that he was not offered a producer credit on the new movie. The Grudge remake is already filming, but this new development might curse it to an uncertain future.

Death becomes Bill and Ted 3 — but not in the way you expect. No, the movie is still alive and kickin’ and in development for now, though that much can’t be said for a certain Bill and Ted character set to return to the sequel. That’s right, it’s William Sadler as Death.
Bill and Ted screenwriter Ed Solomon has been steadily beating the drum for the Bill and Ted sequel, now titled Bill and Ted Face the Music. That includes teasing out details from his Bill and Ted 3 script and appealing to former Bill and Ted actors on Twitter to potentially return for the third film. And it looks like Sadler is more than game.

In Die Hard 2, John McClane (Bruce Willis) found himself trapped in a bigger building, Dulles Airport, with hundreds of more people at risk than the original hostage situation he thwarted in Die Hard. To show the new terrorists are even deadlier than the Nakatomi thieves, Col. Stuart (William Sadler) crashes a plane full of passengers when his demands are not met.
Screenwriter Steven E. de Souza revealed that the studio filmed a second plane crash sequence. Why did they do this? Find out after the jump.
The marketing team at Apple would have you believe that there’s an app for everything, but when you’re a killer agent, sometimes you need your tools to be a little more hands-on. Count on Robert Rodriguez to fix that problem by hiding a blade inside the device.
That’s just one of the many ridiculous sights on display in Machete Kills, which once again stars Danny Trejo as ex-Federale Machete. When a billionaire arms dealer (Mel Gibson) plans to ignite a war by launching a missile into space, the President of the United States (Charlie Sheen, billed as “Carlos Estevez”) calls upon Machete to stop him.

Subtlety and restraint have their place in cinema, but Robert Rodriguez‘s Machete Kills isn’t it. The sequel to Rodriguez’s 2010 action thriller features deadly broads, weaponized boobs, a cackling madman, President Charlie Sheen (or President Carlos Estevez, rather), and a Machete (Danny Trejo) who’s just been pulled back from the brink of death. Watch the explosive first teaser trailer after the jump.

There was a little bit of video from the set of Machete Kills that leaked out a week or so back, but was quickly taken down. Now there’s a replacement, in the form of a TV set visit to the set of Robert Rodriguez‘s latest weird action flick. Danny Trejo returns as Machete, and this time he faces (among other things) Mel Gibson playing a character who is “out to get the President.”(With the President played by Charlie Sheen.)
Check out the video, as well as an image of William Sadler‘s character from the film, below. Read More »
