    Jason Bateman & Melissa McCarthy To Commit 'ID Theft'

    It has been one helluva summer for R-rated comedies with some big successes ("The Hangover Part II," "Bridesmaids," "Horrible Bosses") and some notable misses ("The Change-Up," "30 Minutes Or Less") and Jason Bateman has been on the receiving end of both. He was part of the ensemble who off their employers in 'Bosses' but opposite Ryan Reynolds, the duo couldn't compel audiences to come out to their bawdy body switching comedy. But Bateman is a savvy, smart guy who has certainly been around the industry for a long time, and now ready to move into producing, he has smartly snagged one of the season's biggest breakout stars to co-star with him ...

    First Look At The Extensive Ensemble Cast Of Channing Tatum-Led 'Ten Year'

    While Channing Tatum hasn't impressed us with his acting prowess just yet, it's hard to hate on the guy because he's driven by a sincere desire to do good work. For every "Step Up," "Fighting" or "Dear John" the actor has a "Public Enemies," "The Eagle" or "Haywire" to balance things out and wisely,...

    Bradley Cooper Flies From 'The Crow,' Mark Wahlberg & Channing Tatum Sought To Go Goth

    The road to "The Crow" remake/reboot hasn't been without its bumps. Things seemed to moving along swimmingly with Relativity pushing the project ahead, with "28 Weeks Later" director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo at the helm and Bradley Cooper set to take the lead role. Things got derailed slightly when The Weinstein Company launched a lawsuit against Relativity regarding the rights to the franchise -- the case is now in arbitration -- it put the project on hold for a couple of months, enough time for Cooper to start booking his plans for the rest of the year, and even though the legal imbroglio is still being resolved, a new writer, Alex Tse ("Wa...

    Has An 'Arrested Development' Cast Member Accidentally Leaked The 'Meta' Plot Of The Movie?

    There was a while back there when rumors of an "Arrested Development" movie were numerous, but mostly added up to much ado about nothing. Every detail that emerged from the mouths of cast members sounded like wishful thinking -- a lot of talk about the script being written by 'AD' creator Mitchell Hurtwitz, but no discussion about shooting, releasing, directing or any concrete plans for the production of the movie. Hurwitz continued to focus on television for the most part but both "Sit Down, Shut Up" and "Running Wilde" were canceled by Fox, freeing up his time. And while all cast members have gone on to success after the show's three season...

    Empire Big Screen '11 Review: 'Fright Night' Is Entertaining, But Eminently Disposable

    A confession: this writer has never seen the original "Fright Night." It's one of a certain kind of 80s VHS-era film ("The Goonies," 'Weird Science," 'Wargames"), beloved by a certain generation that this writer was a few years too late for, and that we've never caught up on, principally because it feels like there are plenty of better things to do with our time. This is a long-winded way of saying that if you're looking for comparisons between the original and 2011's "Fright Night", if you're looking for someone to tell you if Colin Farrell lives up to Chris Sarandon, this is not the review for you. What we can do is judge Craig Gillespie's ...

    Holly Robinson-Peete Dropped From CBS's "The Talk"

    Does anyone out there watch CBS's daytime talk show The Talk? Any of you out there? Blatantly inspired (or more like stolen) from ABC network's The View, the show which features women celebrities dishing dirt has actually been a strong ratings-puller for the network.

    Imogen Poots Says Colin Farrell Brings A "Slick Sexuality" To His Vampire In 'Fright Night'

    Here at The Playlist, we’ve been singing the praises of British actress Imogen Poots for a while now. She impressed in Jordan Scott’s boarding school drama “Cracked” and David Levien’s “Solitary Man,” and has been building her presence over the years, with smaller roles in “V for Vendetta,” “28 Weeks Later” and “Me and Orson Welles.” At the close of 2010, The Playlist listed Poots as one of our 15 actresses on the rise, and indeed with roles coming up in the biopic "Greetings From Tim Buckley," the drama "A Late Quartet" (alongside Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener and more) and the romance/heist flick "Comes A Bright Day" with "Submar...
