    James Mangold To Direct 'The Wolverine'

    After a period where it looked as if Fox would take a mulligan on "The Wolverine" and bump the film to 2013 or beyond, it now looks like they've found their director. James Mangold, who has dabbled in various genres from musical biopic ("Walk The Line"), to western ("3:10 To Yuma") and horror ("Identity"), is prepared to take on his first comic book adaptation, and the announcement suggests he's the mutual pick from Fox and Hugh Jackman's camp. Mangold appears to be the top choice among an uninspired trio of potential helmers that included Antoine Fuqua and Gavin O'Connor, otherwise known as Guys You Employ When They Are Represented By The Sa...

    Steven Soderbergh's 'Haywire' Gets January 20, 2012 Release Date

    Relativity Media Will Distribute in U.S.Well, that's one film we can take out of awards contention for 2011. One of Steven Soderbergh's upcoming films "Haywire" won't be released till January 20, 2012. As we've been saying all along, Relativity Media has retained the domestic rights, with Lionsgate holding on to the foreign rights. Lionsgate was all set to release in the U.S. as well, until restructuring gave partner Relativity its own domestic arm for distribution. The initial date was April, 2011, which Soderbergh confirmed himself, but it was never officially announced; the restructuring deal points took much longer than anyone expected. T...

    Brando vs. Crowe as Superman Franchise's Jor-El

    I find disturbing the idea of Russell Crowe playing the role originated by Marlon Brando at age 54 in 1978's Superman. Crowe, 47, is in talks to play opposite Superman Henry Cavill as his beloved father Jor-El in Man of Steel, reports Variety. Of course this will give Crowe a handsome payday. Maybe ...
