    Don Cheadle & Bruce Greenwood Take 'Flight' With Robert Zemeckis & Denzel Washington

    Steven Soderbergh says something on the "Out of Sight" DVD commentary that few would disagree with: "If you can put Don Cheadle in your movie, you should put Don Cheadle in your movie." He's been true to his word, going on to cast the great actor in "Traffic" and three "Ocean's Eleven" movies, and Cheadle's livened up plenty of other projects as well, from his Oscar-nominated turn in "Hotel Rwanda" to, most recently, playing straight man to Brendan Gleeson in "The Guard." Hell, he was even brilliant as Captain Planet. Now, Robert Zemeckis has taken the tip, as Cheadle, along with another stalwart character actor, seems to have come on board t...

    Universal Wants You To Say Hello To Their Little Friend, A New 'Scarface' Movie

    You can pretty much feel the change in thinking over at Universal with this bit of news. After spending the last year or so cancelling a plethora of potentially risky projects (“At the Mountains of Madness,” “Memphis,” “In the Heights,” “The Dark Tower,” “Clue,” “Ouija,” “Wicked Lovely”) and currently smarting from some less than stellar box office returns for films like “Your Highness,” “The Change-Up” and “Cowboys & Aliens” this year, it seems the studio is sticking with brands that they know. And one of their biggest catalog titles is "Scarface," and since there are only so many times you can reissue that thing on DVD and BluRay (the most ...

    Crime Thriller 'Cities Of Refuge' Finds A Citizen In Charlize Theron

    It looks like Charlize Theron is on the comeback trail. After a string of films that either underperformed or just weren't worthy of her talents -- "Battle In Seattle," "In the Valley of Elah," "The Burning Plain," "Hancock," "The Road" -- the actress has lined up a formidable slate of projects. Next year she'll be starring in two major tentpoles, Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" and "Snow White and the Huntsman," and before the end of the year we may be hearing Oscar talk for her turn in Jason Reitman's "Young Adult." So when we hear the words "crime thriller" associated with Theron, we can't help but be a bit excited given the momentum she has r...
