    Joel Silver, Albert Hughes Hope To Silence Chris Evans In MOTOR CITY | CHUD.com

    Motor City is the name of the script, and it’s not without a unique hook of its own– it’s essentially a dialogue-free film. It actually is supposed to contain one line of dialogue, but that’s still a bold conceit for a film that Joel Silver is apparently offering the lead to Chris Evans (with rumors of Jeremy Renner or Joel Edgerton on the short-list under him), and hopes to get shooting early next year. Warner Brothers has shifted Hughes from the Akira film to this, and the indication seems to be that this is well on its way to actually happening (likely a relief for ole Al). Since the script presumably takes place in Detroit, I’m sure the prospect of all those delicious tax breaks is doing a little to grease this project up as well.

    If Evans accepts, he’ll be taking on a mum revenge film that sees his small-time thief character tracking down those who framed and him sent to prison years earlier. Sounds like a big-budget-yet-art-house take on Faster to me, but I imagine there’s some mystery to this script yet left to illuminate.

    We’ll keep you up-to-date– this sounds like a ballsy move from all involved. I hope the film can live up to the script’s reputation.
    This will never fly.

    ‘Die Hard’ Star Bruce Willis In Talks To Play Original Joe In ‘G.I. Joe 2′ | Geeks of Doom

    The first G.I. Joe movie, The Rise of Cobra, was pretty awful. A lot of people seemed to like it for some inexplicable reason, but a guilty pleasure is a guilty pleasure, and that one is getting a sequel.

    Interestingly enough, it appears that pretty much everyone who was in Rise of Cobra, won’t be in G.I. Joe 2, which is titled G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The only returning stars will be Channing Tatum, who plays Duke, the fan–favorite, Snake Eyes (played by Ray Park), and Byung-hun Lee, who plays Storm Shadow.

    But, if all goes to plan, a massive Hollywood star will be one of the newcomers cast to try and help it survive the loss of talents like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marlon Wayans, Sienna Miller, Dennis Quaid, and Rachel Nichols. It’s being reported that none other than Bruce Willis is in talks for a role, and it’s a fairly significant one at that.



    If Willis does join the cast, he would be playing General Joe Colton, the man who first started the G.I. Joe team in the ’80s comic books.

    Willis would join the returning cast, as well as fellow newcomers like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (The Rundown, Fast Five), who’s set to play Roadblock, Ray Stevenson (Rome, The Book of Eli), who’s playing Firefly, Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights, Red Dawn [2011]), who will play Lady Jaye, and RZA (American Gangster, Funny People), who’s playing Blind Master.

    G.I. Joe: Retaliation is written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland, Deadpool), and will be directed by Jon M. Chu, who previously directed Step Up 2: The Streets, Step Up 3D, and Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.

    Danny Trejo is BAD ASS and we have the poster to prove it



    Synopsis: In the vein of Death Wish and Gran Torino, we follow this sixty something vigilante as he kicks ass to not only bring back justice to his best friend but to the community as well. Decorated Vietnam hero Frank Vega (Danny Trejo) returns home only to get shunned by society leaving him without a job or his high school sweetheart. It’s not until forty years later when an incident on a commuter bus (when he protects an elderly black man from a pair of skin heads) makes him a local hero where he's suddenly celebrated once again. But his good fortune suddenly turns for the worse when his best friend Klondike is murdered and the police aren't doing anything about it. Vega decides to take matters into his own hands as he goes in search of the killer only to discover links to local government corruption.

    ‘Dear God No!’ Trailer Delivers Blood, Blood, Boobs and More Blood | Film School Rejects

    The trailer for grindhouse throwback Dear God No! makes a bold claim, but it looks like it can easily back it up. It’s a promise that the film will have wanton violence, swinging breasts, and alliteration. Yes, dear reader, roving rapist bike gangs love poetic devices.

    It’s definitely not for the kiddos, and we’re all working on the honor system here, but the amount of silly brutality in this thing might not even be safe for some adults. The amount of nudity, people will probably be able to handle

    THE GREY Release Date and Possible Oscar-Run for Liam Neeson

    Here’s the press release:

    LOS ANGELES, CA, August 11, 2011 – Open Road Films will release the highly anticipated, action-packed survival thriller, The Grey, in theaters nationwide on January 27, 2012. The Grey stars Liam Neeson and is directed by Joe Carnahan (A-Team, Smokin’ Aces, Narc); it was produced by Liddell Entertainment. The announcement was made today by Tom Ortenberg, CEO of Open Road Films.

    In The Grey, Liam Neeson leads an unruly group of oil-rig roughnecks when their plane crashes into the remote Alaskan wilderness.

    The Grey also features Frank Grillo (upcoming Warrior and Lay The Favorite), Dermot Mulroney (Burn After Reading, About Schmidt), Dallas Roberts (The Good Wife, 3:10 To Yuma), Joe Anderson (Across The Universe, upcoming ABC series The River), James Badge Dale (upcoming World War Z, The Conspirator, HBO’s The Pacific), Nonso Anozie (upcoming Conan The Barbarian, Atonement, RocknRolla).

    The Grey is produced by Jules Daly, Joe Carnahan, Ridley Scott and Mickey Liddell. Executive producers are Tony Scott and Jennifer Hilton as well as Jim Seibel, Bill Johnson and Marc Butan of Inferno Entertainment.

    Morgan Freeman to Play Despised Ex-Magician in NOW YOU SEE ME

    Morgan Freeman will join Jesse Eisenberg, Amanda Seyfried, Melanie Laurent, and Mark Ruffalo in Louis Leterrier’s Now You See Me. The story revolves around FBI agents trying to stop a group of magicians known as “The Four Horsemen” who pull off bank heists during their acts and then shower their audiences with the loot. Eisenberg will play the lead magician, Seyfried plays the technician who builds the contraptions used by the magician-thieves, and Ruffalo is the main FBI agent. According to Variety, “Freeman is in talks to play Thaddeus, an ex-magician who has made a career out of exposing other magicians’ illusions, making him a despised figure within the magic community.” It probably all started when he accidentally revealed the secret of the Aztec Tomb. It’s a shame because he demanded to be taken seriously.
    This sounds really fun.

    Wait, What? Disney Shuts Down ‘The Lone Ranger’ With Johnny Depp & Armie Hammer | Geeks of Doom

    News is breaking that The Walt Disney Company has made the shocking decision to completely shut down production on one of their huge upcoming projects, The Lone Ranger.

    We’ve been hearing about the movie for a few years now with Johnny Depp attached to star as Tonto (alongside The Social Network‘s Armie Hammer in the title role), Gore Verbinski in the director’s seat, and Jerry Bruckheimer as a producer—all three of which were integral in bringing billions (plural) of dollars to Disney with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.



    Apparently Disney didn’t want to spend any more than $200 million (around the norm for a blockbuster) on the movie, but it was hovering at around $230 million, cut down from an original $250 million mark. The company is already throwing around big bucks with Andrew Stanton’s John Carter running around the astonishing $300 million mark after a bunch of re–shoots were required, and the Sam Raimi Wizard of Oz prequel, Oz: The Great and Powerful, looking at about a $200 million price tag.

    With actual filming on The Lone Ranger not scheduled to begin until October, Disney decided that it would be the one they would have to shut down. Surely if they could have chosen from all three it would more likely be John Carter getting the hook, but with that one all but complete, options were limited. The movie was also slated to release on December 21, 2012 against part 1 of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit and Brad Pitt’s World War Z.

    It’s assumed that work will continue to be done in hopes of lowering the budget on the western, but whether it ever gets back into motion is to be seen.

    Disney Cancels THE LONE RANGER Movie

    [Update: Variety now reports that the project is "far from dead," and all parties involved are now working to trim the budget closer to $200 million. Whether the film will still make the planned October start date or if Disney will ultimately pull the plug remains to be seen.]
