    Legendary Writer Robert Towne To Pen Mini-Series 'Pompeii'

    The 2007 writers' strike wound up either rushing a lot of films into production or killing them off completely: one of the many projects to bite the dust was an adaption of Robert Harris' "Pompeii." Set to be directed by Roman Polanski, with Scarlett Johansson and Orlando Bloom in the leads, problems with the film's spiralling budget were only compounded by the impending work stoppage and the feature film was canceled. Polanski went on to film another Harris novel, "The Ghost Writer," instead. Last spring however, "Pompeii" kicked back to life with Ridley Scott snatching up the rights and looking to take it the television mini-series route an...

    Saoirse Ronan Talks Possibility Of Working With Joe Wright Again, Remains Cagey On 'Anna Karenina'

    She might be a good half-decade off being able to drink legally, but Saoirse Ronan has already racked up an impressive array of performances in her career so far. What's more, she seems to know a good deal more about media management than actors three times her age -- while a veteran like, say, Michael Caine is constantly thwarting Christopher Nolan's plans for secrecy, Ronan knows how to run rings around the press when it comes to rumors. She's already come out with a firm refusal to confirm or deny just about anything about her rumored presence in "The Hobbit," and when we caught up with the actress at WonderCon over the weekend, where she ...

    Brief New Footage Of 'Super 8' In Latest TV Spot

    While this summer is going to be filled with comic movies and action franchises, nothing is giving us goosebumps of anticipation more than J.J. Abrams' "Super 8." The Amblin-inspired tale is having its details kept under lock and key but with a cast of mostly lesser-known thesps -- Elle Fanning is the biggest name among them -- the '70s Ohio-set film will center on the strange events that occur following a train crash with a pack of kids who investigate and find out more. At least that's what we can surmise from what we know so far. Paramount has been showing off chunks of footage to movie bloggers and industry folks in recent weeks to huge b...

    Review: Even James Franco and Natalie Portman Can't Save One-Joke "Your Highness"

    There’s something wonderful and goofy about a film that has James Franco in a long wig and a codpiece sending up legendary heroes, as the Medieval Prince Fabious, and Natalie Portman as a slender, vengeful warrior with the toughness of an Amazon. But that wit doesn't go far in Your Highness, a spora...
