    David Slade Says New 'Daredevil' Will Not Connect To Previous Film; Comedy Director For 'Deadpool'?

    Oh hey, remember "Daredevil"? That's okay, you might've forgotten with all the hubbub about "The Wolverine" over the past few days. As you might recall, David Slade recently signed on to direct the new comic film that was being called "a continuation of the saga," but it now seems that plain old "re...

    'New Year's Eve' Gets Ludacris

    The Headline We've Always Wanted To PublishWe'll be honest, some of the other folk at The Playlist don't understand why we keep writing about it, but this writer did one story on the movie and then became bizarrely obsessed and couldn't help but keep following as new actors kept jumping on this thin...

    Kate Bosworth, Diane Kruger, Eva Mendes, Paula Patton & More All Up For 'Total Recall' Remake

    Jessica Biel & Eva Green Also In ContentionDespite it being still near-omnipresent on TV, 20 years since its release, the powers-that-be have deemed that it's time to remake "Total Recall," the sci-fi thriller that proved a hit for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Paul Verhoeven all that time ago. "The Adjustment Bureau" has proven that pictures based on Philip K. Dick's work can still be viable at the box office (both the original and the remake are based on the sci-fi writer's story "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale"). And Sony, in their infinite wisdom, have put the new version in the hands of D-movie king Neal Moritz ("The Green Hornet," "Th...

    David O. Russell Says He's Ready To Write The Sequel To 'The Fighter'

    With "The Fighter" now on DVD/Blu-ray it's fairly safe to say most people have seen it at least once by now. (The film actually plays better the second time.) The true story of underdog boxer Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg) and his somewhat dysfunctional family was nominated for a ton of awards and ended up just shy of $100 million at the U.S. box office. But the real underdog story is the resurrection of director David O. Russell's career. After an unintentional six-year hiatus (where he eventually abandoned his troubled political satire "Nailed"), the writer/director reunited with his pal Wahlberg to take on "The Fighter" after filmmaker Darren ...

    David Fincher Eyed To Direct 'Cleopatra' With Angelina Jolie

    There is no doubt that Sony and producer Scott Rudin want big things out of the gestating "Cleopatra." With James Cameron previously sought and Paul Greengrass recently sniffing around (before opting for "Memphis"), the filmmakers have now taken the project to another very high profile name.
