    Jez Butterworth To Write Untitled Feature About The Making Of The Clash's 'London Calling'

    Call It 'Titans Of The Clash.' We Dare YouIt's only a couple of weeks since we were last extolling our love of seminal punk band The Clash, so we'll spare you the full shtick: in short, they're certainly the greatest of the punk bands, and possibly the single greatest band in the history of rock and roll. It seems that filmmakers have just cottoned on to that fact -- a few weeks back it was announced that Paul Viragh, writer of the terrible Ian Dury biopic "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll," was penning "Joe Public," about the band's frontman Joe Strummer. Now, word has emerged of a rival project, which threatens to see the other one consigned to h...

    Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci Update Progress on 'Star Trek' Sequel Script

    Story's Been Broken, Film Not Seen As 'A Second Act' To this day, we're still kind of stunned as to how much we enjoyed last summer's reboot of "Star Trek." Sure, it had its fair share of plot holes and silly moments (not that we want to kick this one off again -- our post on our issues with the fi...

    Joss Whedon Was Offered, Turned Down Chance To Reboot 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' Himself

    Fans To End Hunger Strikes, Bombing Campaign Few fan communities (other than, it would appear, RED camera acolytes) are quite as vocal as those with a love of the work of Joss Whedon. The writer-director became a public figure with the success of the TV version of his own film script, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," and, with the show coinciding with the early years of the internet, Whedon has had a vociferous, powerful following ever since -- they managed to keep "Dollhouse," an interesting failure at best, on the air for a second season, despite rock-bottom ratings, and even persuaded Universal to greenlight "Serenity," a film version of anoth...

    Christopher Nolan Says Stop Trying To Figure Out The Purposely Ambiguous Ending Of 'Inception'

    Director Also Confirms -- For The Ninth Frickin' Time -- That 'The Dark Knight Rises' Is His Last 'Batman' FilmVindication at last! Or at least, sorta. Anyone who's followed our site closely this year (including its old iteration) knows we've maintained since day one that the controversial, much-discussed and picked-over/picked apart ending of Christopher Nolan's "Inception" was meant to be open-ended and ambiguous (though ok, truthfully, some of us have insisted it ended as a tragedy like all his previous noir-ish films, see the ending of "The Prestige," "Insomnia" and "Memento") . In the tradition of the great Stanley Kubrick -- which the f...
