    Mel Gibson Says He's Re-Teaming With Randall Wallace For His Next Movie; Is It 'Love And Honor'?

    Mel Gibson is back. Sort of. After a very rocky 2010, with his personal life spilling in to an ugly mess all over the tabloids, it pretty much seemed like the actor/director's career had tanked. However, it seems that over time, the public, once astonished at the things that came out of Gibson's mouth, are now ready to forgive him. Or least see what he has to offer. "The Beaver" has been getting pretty good reviews, and when it hits theaters on May 20th it will be interesting to see how audiences react. But Gibson is plowing ahead. In an interview with journalist Allison Hope Weiner, given as an exclusive to Deadline, the actor talks about ev...

    Review: 'Talking Funny' Isn't Quite The Same As Being Funny

    Here's the thing about comedians -- they take the business of being funny, very very seriously. One of the most competitive and unforgiving avenues in the entertainment biz, it's never about how funny you were, it's always about how funny you're going to be. Once the punchlines vanishes, the audience waits for the next round and in a way, telling jokes is like asking a sculptor to continually create new work that not only builds on the previous one, but adds to it. Almost by nature, comedians are insecure, forever polishing, refining, writing and changing their act in the pursuit of perfection. But it's that unquenchable desire for the ultima...

    Review: Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon's Film Lumbers Like An Elephant

    I’m sure the filmmakers didn’t mean to take the title so much to heart, but this would-be romantic drama is as lumbering as an elephant. Somehow Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon have lost their usual sparkle, and even a circus in the background can’t save us from the tedium that is Water for E...
