    First Look At Gerard Butler In Marc Forster’s ‘Machine Gun Preacher’ > The Playlist

    Based on a true story, the film is a biopic of Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing Hell’s Angel who found God, set up an orphanage in Sudan in the 1990s, and then formed a militia to prevent the children from being turned into child soldiers. Butler plays the lead role of Childers, with a decent cast including Michelle Monaghan, Michael Shannon, Kathy Baker and Souleymane Sy Savane in support.

    Rumored Cast for EXPENDABLES 2 Includes Schwarzenegger, Willis, Travolta, Van Damme, and Chuck Norris

    Filming on the sequel to Sylvester Stallone’s 2010 all-star action movie The Expendables is set to begin in September, and now rumors are starting to swirl about what action heavyweights will be along for the ride this time around. Shooting will be taking place in Bulgaria, and the CEO of Bulgaria-based NU Boyana studios David Varod recently dropped some huge names when listing the cast for The Expendables 2 to Novinite: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, John Travolta, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis.

    We expected Stallone, Statham, Lundgren and Rourke to return, but this is the first time we’ve heard of Travolta, Norris and Vam Damme’s involvement (Stallone has been wanting Schwarzenegger and Willis to return for a while). However, just because Varod listed them off doesn’t mean all of these actors mentioned are definitely in the film. Hit the jump for more.

    While it would certainly be cool to see all of these guys together in the same movie, this casting rumor should be taken with a grain of salt. Some of the actors may simply be on a wishlist or “in talks,” and even if they do appear it could be in a cameo-type role similar to Schwarzenegger and Willis’ involvement in the first film. Nevertheless, if Stallone has assembled all those mentioned, The Expendables 2 could prove to be the testosterone-fueled equivalent of New Year’s Eve. Simon West (Con Air) is directing, with the film slated for August 17th, 2012.

    DIE HARD 5 Goes to Russia and Seeks New Director

    There have been a lot of rumors surrounding the sadly inevitable Die Hard 5 over the past few years, from Bruce Willis claiming it would be a worldwide undershirt adventure to talk that it might inexplicably be called Die Hard 24/7. The most recent bit of news to sneak out of the endless Die Hard 5 rumor treadmill was that the new film would weirdly be directed by award-winning commercial helmer Noam Murro of Smart People fame. Franchise fans struggled to imagine what an indie quirk comedy version of Die Hard could possibly be, with guns removed in favor of manic-depressive deadpan comedy. Fortunately we won’t have to worry about that any longer as today it’s been reported that Murro has left the project. However, Willis and the studio are still determined to milk a little more cast out of the Die Hard brand name and plan to search for a new director for the latest franchise entry that will apparently send John McClane to Russia (we’re as confused as you are by that one). Hit the jump for more info on the endlessly delayed five-quel.



    According to Twitch Film, Murro has departed Die Hard 5, which is probably a good thing seeing as how little he’s made before suggests an interest in throwback high-octane action. Murro has moved on to an equally baffling project and plans to direct the 300 sequel 300: Battle Of Artemisia instead (I guess he’s decided to specialize in unnecessary sequels). It hasn’t yet been revealed who will replace Murro in the director’s chair; however, there’s no way the project will completely disappear. There are simply too many dollar signs involved even after the disappointing, but successful Live Free Or Die Hard. The current rumor is that Max Payne director John Moore will step in, which suggests the film will promise the same level of mediocrity as the last chapter in the franchise.

    What the movie will be about is anyone’s guess, with endless rumors and speculation popping up over the four years since the last outing. Current speculation is that the next film will mostly be spent in Russia with John McClane and his son getting into trouble with the locals. It’s a believable premise, but not a very promising one. Using Russia as a villain could either be an amusing throwback to Regan-era action flicks or a lazy sign of desperation, and pairing Bruce Willis up with a young actor didn’t work with Justin Long last time, so I find it hard to believe they’ll come up with the perfect young partner here (though Ashton Kutcher would at least be an amusingly terrible choice).

    The simple truth is that we don’t really need another Die Hard movie. The original films are R-rated action classics from another era and if Live Free Or Die Hard proved anything it’s that the studios just don’t know how to make those kinds of movies anymore (Bruce wasn’t even allowed to say Yippie-Ki-Yay mother****er for christsakes). But, sadly that movie made enough money to make a fifth Die Hard movie sound potentially profitable and all of the Cop Outs in the world won’t convince those money-hungry execs otherwise. All we can hope is that Die Hard 5 will be as painless as possible, or ideally it’ll languish in development hell for too long and never get made. Fingers crossed John McLane fans, fingers crossed.

    Shortlist for DIE HARD 5 Directors Includes Joe Cornish, Nicolas Winding Refn and Justin Lin

    Well, shoot for the stars. I automatically have new found interest in a Die Hard flick if Refn or Cornish get the gig.

    THE FP Movie Images; Drafthouse Films Acquires THE FP

    a while back, since we don't have an All Things:What The F_ _ K? section(yet), I thought this would do...

    Here’s the official press release:

    AUSTIN, TX – Monday, August 1, 2011 – Drafthouse Films, the film distribution arm of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, today announced the acquisition of US rights to THE FP from its July 30th screening at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival. Set in a near post-apocalyptic future, THE FP centers on two rival neon-clad gangs raging an underground turf war for dominance of Fraizer Park (“The FP”) in the deadly arena of “Beat-Beat Revelation” – a competitive dance-fight video game. THE FP is a nod to ‘80s sci-fi/action genre fare and is directed by brothers Jason and Brandon Trost (Cinematographer, CRANK 2: HIGH VOLTAGE and the upcoming GHOST RIDER 2: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE), and Executive Produced by Jason Blum and Steven Schneider of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY and INSIDIOUS fame. A limited theatrical release for the “rare ready-made cult hit” (Moviefone) is planned for Q1 of 2012.

    Fantasia ‘11 Review: ‘Bangkok Knockout’ Delivers Awesome Action In An Otherwise Incompetent Film > The Playlist

    In many ways “Bangkok Knockout” is the perfect film for Fantasia (or any other similarly themed genre fest), but let’s be clear: the latest from “Ong Bak 2” and “Ong Bak 3” director Panna Rittikrai is terrible in almost every conceivable technical, narrative and aesthetic category. It’s atrociously acted, with a derivative, absurd story shot with no real skill except in making sure that when two characters are speaking to each other, they are both in the frame. However, when it’s time for the fights—which are frequent, exciting and amazingly staged, Rittikrai is firmly in his element and the audience is in his hand. “Bangkok Knockout” is precisely the kind of film that needs to be watched with a vocal, appreciative Fantasia crowd cheering along with every astounding punch, flip and kick, if only to share the joy of the sequences and have somebody to ride out the tedium of everything else in between.
    I really want to see this.

But Tom Hardy is the **** in this thing. The instant he appeared on-screen I knew he was up to something extra-special and quite fierce. He gives one of the most intense burn-through, seething-machismo performances I've ever seen in a mainstream feature.
    Goddammit. I almost want to see this.
