    Antonio Banderas Says He Was Asked To Join 'The Expendables 2' But Didn't Have Time To Fit It In

    Nicolas Cage Won't Be In It & Probably Not John Travolta EitherEven though the meat-head heavy "The Expendables 2" is already in front of cameras, with the Ben Gay-sponsored cast ripping it up for next summer's blockbuster, rumors have still been floating about possible appearances in the film. One rumor picking up heat in recent weeks was the possibility of Nicolas Cage and John Travolta joining the cast. Well, we heard from Cage's reps who told us he was not going to be in the film, and reportedly the folks at Think McFly Think have learned that Travolta is out too. Bummer. But they're not the only ones who have been on Sly Stallone's lengt...

    Grumpy Old Tough Guys: Walter Hill In Talks To Direct Sylvester Stallone In 'Headshot'

Hill has directed the likes of Eddie Murphy, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and the immortal James Remar, but not once has he been associated with the headstrong...

    'Passion Play' With Mickey Rourke & Megan Fox Not Surprisingly Going Straight-To-DVD

    To put it quite simply: "Passion Play," starring Mickey Rourke and Megan Fox, was the worst film we saw at TIFF last year (though Dustin Lance Black's "What's Wrong With Virginia" comes a close second). Our man on the ground called it "a cliche-riddled, risible and utterly painful experience that bo...
