    With a ridiculously stacked cast including Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Anthony Mackie, Nick Nolte, Michael Pena, Giovanni Ribisi and many more, in many ways this will be a big test test for "Zombieland" and "30 Minutes Or Less" director Ruben Fleischer. W...

    Josh Brolin Rumored For Spike Lee's 'Oldboy' That Will Draw On Original Manga For Adaptation

    That's funny. We were just chatting around The Playlist water color about who might take the lead role in Spike Lee's adaptation of "Oldboy" and while our immediate thought was that this might go out to some of the hot young thesps around town (i.e. Michael Fassbender) we were quickly reminded that the movie is called "Oldboy" for a reason -- it deals with a man who is suddenly freed after being being held captive in a hotel room for fifteen years (and there are some other elements that we won't spoil for those who haven't seen the film that also skew to an older actor). Well, just as we were pulling together our list of possible candidates T...

    We Read It: Casting Quentin Tarantino's Slavery/Spaghetti Western Epic 'Django Unchained'

    You’ll recall in 2008 we did, what we thought, was a very good job of casting Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” (some of us are still convinced our picks were better than Q.T.’s, but that’s another story). And unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Tarantino has recently fini...

    'A Serious Man' Star Michael Stuhlbarg Joins The Still-Filming 'Men in Black 3'

    The ugly portrait of Hollywood stupidity and hubris -- "hey, we'll figure out the script on set, no problem!" -- is a slightly antiquated one given the rise of successful improvisation, not only in comedy which was the norm, but big-budget narrative (see "Iron Man" where Jon Favreau and co. literally figured out scenes moments before they were shot), but can still be occasionally framed as a cautionary tale. See the latest example: "Men In Black 3" or "Men In Black 3D" whatever you want to call it. Sony's very expensive tentpole revival 10 years after the fact ("MIB2" was released in 2002) has been shooting on and off since December and is st...
