    Geoffrey Rush & Jim Sturgess Get 'The Best Offer' With Giuseppe Tornatore, Ennio Morricone To Score Film

    Celebrated Italian filmmaker Giuseppe Tornatore doesn't exactly crank them out, and while he made waves on American shores in the late '80s and '90s with "Cinema Paradiso," "The Star Maker," "The Legend Of 1900" and "Malena," it has been over a dec...

    Geoffrey Rush Sought To Take Over Lead In Former Marlon Brando & Johnny Depp Project 'Divine Rapture'

    At the best of times, particularly in the latter stages of his career, Marlon Brando was pretty unpredictable; you never knew what you might get from the mercurial actor once he was on set. But in the case of the never-made "Divine Rapture," the filmmakers never got a chance to see what mi...

    Watch: Trailer For Fred Schepisi's TIFF Entry 'Eye Of The Storm' With Geoffrey Rush

    It has been a long time since Australian director Fred Schepisi has been behind camera. His last effort was the acclaimed HBO mini-series "Empire Falls" and before that his last feature film was 2003's forgettable "It Runs In The Family." But the director is back, and we'll soon see if he still has...

    Review: 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4' Is a Soggy Sea Chanty That Seems Awfully Familiar

    Executive producers of television series talk about needing to do a "bottle episode," usually about a third of the way through the season when they've unnecessarily overspent on the earlier episodes and need to save up so that the finale can go out with a bang. In a lot of ways "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" (yes, that's the actual title) feels like a "bottle episode" in the franchise, one in which the scale is cut back tremendously, extraneous mythology shaved away, with the lavish direction of the original trilogy (by Gore Verbinski, who helmed one of this year's very best movies, "Rango") replaced with someone whose vision i...

    'Green Lantern' WonderCon Footage Impresses; New Posters Released Too

    Last night, Ryan Reynolds may have said he's reached his super hero film quota with "Green Lantern" already completed and "Deadpool," plus the genre-y graphic novel, "R.I.P.D.," but he may be getting ahead of himself, since none of these pictures has been released. We've been pretty skeptical of "Gr...

    Geoffrey Rush To Voice Tomar-Re In 'Green Lantern'

    Hal Jordan Will Not StutterIf the buzz around "Green Lantern" is non-existent, don't worry, because Warner Bros. is well aware of the problem. They recently admitted that the first trailer wasn't so hot and conceded that the effects are taking much longer to lock down than they expected, hence the l...

    Tom Hooper Says He Won't Cut 'The King's Speech' For PG-13 Rating; Weinstein Says F-Bombs Hurt Pic

    With "The King's Speech" now the odds on favorite to take home a significant chunk of Oscar gold in a few weeks, Harvey Weinstein is looking to ride that momentum by getting as many eyeballs on the film, and asses in the seats as possible. Just this past weekend -- the first Friday after the Oscar nominations were revealed -- the film expanded to over 2,500 screens but there's just one little problem. An R-rating -- mostly found in one key sequence -- is keeping the film away from even bigger crowds and apparently educators who want to screen the film for their students. Last week, Harvey Weinstein revealed his desire to re-cut the film to pa...
