    Casting: Robert De Niro Visits Stephen Gaghan’s ‘Candy Store’; Alicia Vikander Joins Alex Garland's Robot Thriller & More

    Writer/director Stephen Gaghan has given us the scripts to Steven Soderbergh’s “Traffic” "Rules of Engagement," and "The Alamo," but turned full-fledged filmmaker with 2005's excellent political drama, "Syriana." He hasn’t directed a film since, but not for want of trying. Gaghan’s been attached to ...

    Sam Worthington To Star In Philip Noyce-Directed, Oren Moverman-Penned Thriller 'For The Dogs'

    It's a peculiar day when a revenge flick comes down the pipeline and a grizzled older thespian unleashes in his genre, but in the case of Phillip Noyce's latest directorial effort, fresh-faced and Cameron-approved is the order of the day.

    Terrence Howard & Dawn Olivieri Join 'Breacher' (Formerly 'Ten') With Arnold Schwarzenegger & Sam Worthington

    The acting comeback trail for former California Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger has been a bumpy one marred by a scandal (which seems to have been forgotten), an attempt at a completely self-indulgent cartoon, but mostly just a dearth of solid projects worthy of bringing the lumbering talent back t...

    Sam Worthington Joins Arnold Schwarzenegger In David Ayer's 'Ten'

    One wonders where the career of Sam Worthington would be without the massive "Avatar" franchise hanging both behind him, and ahead of him. Certainly as the central character in James Cameron's film (and upcoming sequels, whenever they happen), it has allowed a lot of doors to remain op...

    Sam Worthington To Co-Produce & Possibly Star In Miniseries About Battle Of Gallipoli

    Sam Worthington has kinda fallen off the map after breaking out in "Avatar," with a few indies ("The Debt," "Man On A Ledge") and the whole 'Clash Of The Titans' thing not exactly raising his profile -- though the latter probably bought him a new house or two. H...

    First Look At Sam Worthington & Xavier Samuel In Australian Surfing Action-Drama 'Drift'

    The surfing world hasn't seen much love since Kathryn Bigelow's "Point Break," with most pics since then merely excuses to get good-looking actors in swimsuits. There does seem to be one film on the horizon that aims to be different though, the surfing-based action-drama "Drif...

    Wrath Of The Titans—movie review

    I remember feeling a certain amount of wrath over the ham-handed 3-D effects in 2010’s 'Clash of the Titans', but the film itself wasn’t bad: uneven, to be sure, but strengthened by adhering to the story template of the 1981 movie of the same name, written by Beverley Cross. If I were 12 years old I...
