There's the Denzel Washington Equalizer reboot, which just tapped Chloe Moretz as the female lead; and the...

    Discuss: Can Marvel Keep Lowballing Their Actors? 'The Avengers 2' Negotiations Get Heated

    As Marvel enters Phase Two of their cinematic universe, their business universe is also getting a bit of a shake up. No one could have really predicted that Phase One would end with the billion dollar earning "The Avengers," and that really changed the game. Wisely, Robert Downey Jr. had negotiated ...

    Wendell Pierce Reveals He Tried To Produce A Prequel To 'The Wire' Starring Samuel L. Jackson

    It must be an occasionally frustrating prospect for David Simon to ponder: as his superb HBO series “Treme” struggled with viewers (to the point where it's only receiving half a final season), “The Wire” continues to grow in popularity and adoration.

    Warner Bros. Shutting Down 'Tarzan' Production Office, Might Try To Make It In 2014

    Looks like Warner Bros. is pulling an "Akira," "Paradise Lost" and "Arthur & Lancelot" on "Tarzan." The studio, which famously shut down all of those aforementioned films while they were in pre-production, is doing the same thing with "Tarzan" for pretty much same reason: money, money, money.

    DVD/VOD Review - 'Unthinkable' (Samuel L Jackson Yells A Lot And Does Some Bad Things)

    What a silly exercise Unthinkable is. It's just not very good! In fact, for a film centered on material of such gravity, it's more comical than it likely intended to be. I laughed. A lot.
