    Story Of Notorious Drug Cartel - Black Mafia Family - Being Developed For The Big Screen

    I wasn't already familiar, but from the little research I did, I learned that the Black Mafia Family (BMF), was a drug cartel that was created in Detroit, Michigan in the late 1980s, by Demetrius "Big Meech" and Terry Flenory. Over the following decade or so, their organization grew into a hugely su...

    Paul Haggis Gets His Own Spy Franchise, Adapting Daniel Silva's Ex-Mossad Agent Gabriel Allon

    To his credit, Paul Haggis has not used the fact that his coming-out party as director, "Crash" won Best Picture at the Academy Awards, to churn out a series of Oscar-bait films. Instead, the "Due South" creator has mostly stuck to the kind of middlebrow thrillers to which he's suited, ranging from ...

    Tom Wilkinson In Talks To Join Johnny Depp & Armie Hammer In 'The Lone Ranger'

    There's nothing that can make a director look good in retrospect as someone else coming into the franchise that they birthed and messing it up even more than it already was, and that's what happened to Gore Verbinski in the last month or so. The second and third entries in the "Pirates of the Caribb...

    Watch: New Trailer For 'Captain America' Promises To Be The Savior Of Summer Comic Movies

    It's been a bit of an uneven summer so far for comic book movies. "Thor" was a near campy, somewhat enjoyable romp that made tolerable popcorn entertainment but didn't exactly have us hankering for a sequel, either. "X-Men: First Class" had the scope and stakes not regularly seen in a comic movie, and buoyed by strong performances by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, it certainly elevated the genre but was not without some hard to ignore issues. And the less said about the godawful "Green Lantern," the better. So, can "Captain America: The First Avenger" top off the comic book summer with a bang?

    First Look At Diane Kruger, Lea Seydoux & Virginie Ledoyen In 'Farewell, My Queen'

    A film we've been keeping an eye on is Benoit Jacquot‘s "Farewell, My Queen." Admittedly, some of it is for purely superficial reasons -- our hounddog baying and tailwagging for the trio of lead actresses Diane Kruger, Lea Seydoux and Virginie Ledoyen might be a tad uncouth -- but it's also a period...
