    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?

    Vin Diesel Unveils ‘Riddick’ Sequel Concept Art, Hopes For 2012 Release

Back in the spring, the actor made a big show of announcing that he was going to deign to getting paid scale in order to get a new "Chronicles of Riddick" sequel off the ground, philosophically stating, "Money is always second to art, integrity and spirit" but wonderi...

    Vin Diesel To Star In Jane Austen Adaptation. No, Wait, It's Another Action Movie.

    It's not that the movie star is dead, as such, it's that domestic audiences (viewers abroad are still very much in thrall to "the star") are less and less willing to watch actors outside of the genre in which they made their name. It's arguable, for instance, whether Hugh Jackman is much of a draw w...

    Let Us Get Our Tiny Violin: Vin Diesel Upset He's Being Paid Scale For 'Riddick' Sequel No One Wants

    Film To Be R-Rated, Shoot This Summer1999's "Pitch Black" was a nifty little sci-fi horror film: nothing special, but a solid genre entry, which used a decent cast, including Cole Hauser and Radha Mitchell, and in particular granite-voiced man mountain Vin Diesel, to good effect. The film made Diese...

    Vin Diesel To Star In The Action Comedy 'The Machine'

    With "Fast Five" driving all over the box office in a franchise that people can't seem to get enough of, the world appears to be an oyster for thick necked Vin Diesel. While his efforts outside of the car franchise haven't quite hit the same peaks, generally, the man brings in the bucks and it looks...
