    'Mortal Instruments' Adds Aidan Turner & CCH Pounder; Brendan Fraser Makes A 'Split Decision' & Josh Gad Has An 'Internship'

    The quest to find a young adult book series that can easily be turned into a film franchise of “The Hunger Games” or “Twilight” proportions seems to be everlasting. One of the more recent attempts is currently coming together in the form of author Cassandra Clare’s &ldq...

    Tribeca Review: 'Whole Lotta Sole' Is An Insufferable Comic Take On The British Gangster Movie

    The title of "Whole Lotta Sole" is the kind of gratingly obnoxious flourish that makes you hate the movie immediately. First of all it sits in your mouth like a blob of half-chewed gummy bears; secondly, it sounds like a direct-to-video independent movie produced in the mid-90s that the Weinsteins p...

    Sienna Miller & Brendan Fraser Join Justin Long Penned 'A Case Of You' With Evan Rachel Wood

    It looks like Justin Long has been working his little book of phone numbers hard. The upcoming film "A Case Of You," which he co-wrote, has already lined up an impressive cast with Evan Rachel Wood, Peter Dinklage, Sam Rockwell, Vince Vaughn, Busy Phillips and Keir O'Donnell (who ...

    'Journey To The Center Of The Earth' Director Reunites With Brendan Fraser For 3D William Tell Film

    Director Eric Brevig And Fraser To Inflict More Fun On The Whole Family We see the logic behind harnessing Brendan Fraser's goofball amiability for toothless family-oriented "adventure" films, but, man, we wish the guy could catch a break outside of this particular ghetto. However his more recent forays into thriller or drama territory ("Extraordinary Measures" anyone? Anyone? Really? No one?) have fared poorly, and while he's no guarantee of success even with a family film ("Furry Vengeance," "Dudley Do-right"), it seems to be the one genre where he can consistently get hired. And this isn't changing -- he's next attached to "Tell 3D," a re'...

    Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser & Craig Robinson Join 'Freaky Deaky'

    Slowly coming together over the last 10 months or so, it looks like the Elmore Leonard adaptation, "Freaky Dreaky," is finally moving full steam ahead. The project first started picking up steam during TIFF last year when William H. Macy signed to the film. A number of names then followed, rumored t...

    Brendan Fraser & Kristin Scott Thomas Join Neil LaBute's 'Seconds Of Pleasure'

    Colin Firth & Ed Harris Offered RolesWhat the hell happened to Neil LaBute? Once considered a bold new emerging cinematic voice after delivering two caustic, blistering and hilarious films "In The Company Of Men" and "Your Friends & Neighbors" the director unwisely started taking on projects not based on his own writing. This led to the films like "Nurse Betty" and "Posession" and though he rebounded with the underrated "The Shape Of Things," matters got considerably worse with a trifecta of awful including "The Wicker Man" (man gets attacked by bees), "Lakeview Terrace" (man gets attacked by Samuel L. Jackson) and "Death At A Funeral" (man g...
