    Channing Tatum Will Be Hot For Teacher, 'Bridesmaids' Star Ellie Kemper, In '21 Jump Street'

    We can't be the only ones who feel like Ellie Kemper is going to be a giant movie star. The 31-year-old actress, a graduate of Princeton, Upright Citizen's Brigade, The Onion and McSweeney's, has been one of the shining lights of "The Office" since her introduction as touched-in-the-head receptionis...

    Alex Pettyfer To Play A Young Channing Tatum, Opposite Channing Tatum, In Soderbergh's 'Magic Mike'

    Um, wow. The idea that Steven Soderbergh was sneaking one more film in before his long-promised retirement, other than the previously announced "Liberace" and "The Man From U.N.C.L.E," was a surprise. The idea that the bonus picture would be a drama about male strippers, starring part-man, part-tree trunk Channing Tatum, was an even bigger surprise. But further casting's been announced for the film, and it's a real eyebrow-raiser: the director has landed the young star of "I Am Number Four," Alex Pettyfer, to play opposite Tatum. Not only that, but it emerges that Pettyfer will essentially be playing a younger version of the real-life Channin...

    Mel Gibson Says He's Re-Teaming With Randall Wallace For His Next Movie; Is It 'Love And Honor'?

    Mel Gibson is back. Sort of. After a very rocky 2010, with his personal life spilling in to an ugly mess all over the tabloids, it pretty much seemed like the actor/director's career had tanked. However, it seems that over time, the public, once astonished at the things that came out of Gibson's mouth, are now ready to forgive him. Or least see what he has to offer. "The Beaver" has been getting pretty good reviews, and when it hits theaters on May 20th it will be interesting to see how audiences react. But Gibson is plowing ahead. In an interview with journalist Allison Hope Weiner, given as an exclusive to Deadline, the actor talks about ev...

    Jake Johnson Latest To Join Cast Of '21 Jump Street'

    Considering it's the kind of project that we'd normally run a mile from (namely, a big-budget remake of a 1980s TV show that no one really gives a shit about), we're curiously optimistic about "21 Jump Street." Like the show, which launched the career of Johnny Depp, the movie will focus on a group ...

    Sony Picks Up Channing Tatum's Horrible-Sounding Peter Pan Prequel

    If you'll beg our indulgence for a second, we've got a pitch that we want to put out there, one that we think is our ticket out of this film blogging racket. It's called "Rick," and it's a prequel to the all-time-classic "Casablanca." See, Rick Blaine, as played by Humphrey Bogart, is one of the all...

    Rachel Nichols Says Only Duke, Storm Shadow & Snake Eyes Coming Back For 'G.I. Joe 2'

    So Stephen Sommers left (or was kicked off), somewhat bizarrely, "Step Up" director Jon Chu entered and the only question that remained was just who from "G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra" would be returning for sequel. Turns out, very few people.

    Review: 'The Eagle' Marred By Humorless Melodrama & A Silly Bromance

    Helluva Chase Though...While mildly engaging initially, but soon marred by cliches, all-to-familiar and humorless swords and sandals tropes, a barrage of mixed accents (including puzzling Brooklyn ones), and the unintentional bromance comedy of two warring leads turned bffs by the end of the picture...
