    'Skyfall' Writers Neal Purvis & Robert Wade Will Try And Make A 'Kojak' Movie Starring Vin Diesel Tolerable

    'Who loves ya, baby?' Vin Diesel To Star In Big Screen Adaptation Of 'Kojak' For Universal

    Of they could just create a new crime drama project for Vin Diesel to star in; but, no, it has to be based on an already existing work, if only because there's an already existing fan base for it, and they hope that Diesel's popularity will also attract new, younger audiences who may ha...

    First Official Images Arrive Of Vin Diesel, Paul Walker & Dwayne Johnson In 'Fast & Furious 6'

    It's virtually unheard of for a series to peak with its fifth installment, but by quite some distance, 2011's "Fast Five" turned out to be the most entertaining of the illegal-road-race franchise (which now has very little to do with road racing). Director Justin Lin, in his third film of the series...

    Vin Diesel & Clark Gregg Part Of Far-Fetched Rumors To Play Vision In 'The Avengers 2'

    With "Iron Man 3" shooting, and "Thor: The Dark World" gearing up later this year, and with no new Marvel movies until 2013, geeks are in a bit of dead zone at the moment. But leave it to Vin Diesel to get nerds to push the glasses up from their nose and hit the interwebs wi...

    '24' & 'Battlestar Galactica' Star Katee Sackhoff Lands Female Lead In New 'Riddick' Sequel

    Oh, so we guess that new "Chronicles Of Riddick" movie is happening after all. After pre-production was abruptly shut down in Montreal late last fall, and then started up again before the end of the year, it appears it's all systems go at Universal for Vin Diesel and David Twohy as the...

    'Knuckle' Director Ian Palmer Talks Bringing The Documentary To TV, Reveals Vin Diesel Was Interested In Movie Rights

    Aside from maybe Errol Morris' "Tabloid," there is no story you'll see in a docmentary this year as astonishingly odd and visceral as that in Ian Palmer's "Knuckle." But unlike Morris' film, which centers on a single incident in the already quirky life of one woma...

    Jason Statham Reaches His Destiny, Sought For Two Future 'Fast & Furious' Sequels

    'Fast Six' And 'Fast Seven' May Be Shot Back-To-Back In EuropeFranchises, generally speaking, are more like fruit than cheese (bear with us, we are going somewhere with this). They might need a film to ripen to their full potential -- sequels generally outgross their predecessors -- but in the main they run their course by the third or fourth film, as opposed to, say, maturing and finding greater audiences and creative highs with each new installment. So we were as surprised as you were that not only was "Fast Five" the the highest grossing (over $600 million now, nearly double the haul of its "Fast and Furious" predecessors) entry of the ser...

    Karl Urban & His Futuristic Haircut Are Apparently Returning For Vin Diesel's New 'Riddick' Movie

    So, has Vin Diesel been too eager to get his next "Riddick" movie off the ground? We'll leave that for you to decide, but just a few days after hitting his Facebook page with concept art, talk of an R-rating and a 2012 release, that entire post has been removed. Hmm. So just bear that in mind as we ...
