    We Just Crapped Our Pants: Ryan Gosling & Nicolas Winding Refn Team For 'Logan's Run'

    Ahhh! This is what Ryan Gosling was alluding to. Let's face it, we didn't give a shit about the "Logan's Run" remake throughout its long development history that saw a number of directors -- notably Bryan Singer and more recently Carl Erik Rinsch (who is moving on to do "47 Ronin") -- circle the dir...

    Bradley Cooper Joins 'The Words'; Jeremy Irons In Talks; Directorial Debut By 'Tron: Legacy' Writers

    Though his profile was raised considerably thanks to a starring turn in "The Hangover," Bradley Cooper isn't quite proven outside of that comedy vehicle. Yet. Oh sure, he had "The A-Team" last summer, but that was sold more on the franchise than the actors and its terribleness was due mostly to the atrocious material than anything else. Coming up, he's got the thriller "Limitless" that will be the first real test of his leading man status and he will be testing the waters with none other than Robert De Niro in that pic. But clearly, Cooper isn't eager to get pigeonholed into frat boy comedy and his next project is another shift of direction f...

    'Red Sonja' Back On With Simon West Directing; Amber Heard Tipped As Favorite For The Lead

    Morgan Freeman & Annette Bening Join Rob Reiner's 'The Third Act'

    Rob Reiner is a bit of a conundrum. He's made three bona fide classics -- "This Is Spinal Tap," "The Princess Bride" and "When Harry Met Sally...," delivered some better than average blockbusters like "Misery" and "A Few Good Men," and most recently, had one of his biggest hits ever with "The Bucket...

    That's Not Nikki Finke

    I can tell you unequivocally that Nikki Finke is not the subject of The Daily photo she has been trying to stop them from publishing. I've known Finke for years, and she doesn't coif her hair like that, or wear heavy jewelry and makeup. She's more down-to-earth, as she told Gawker--which once offere...

    Where's Greta Gerwig? Trailer For 'Arthur' With Russell Brand Lands With A Thud

    Ooof. Listen, we like Russell Brand, and he can be quick with a quip and wit, but we just sat here watching the trailer for "Arthur" -- yes, a remake of the Dudley Moore comedy "classic" -- and we kept waiting for something funny to happen. It never did.
