    'Eastbound & Down' Star Steve Little Says 'The Catechism Cataclysm' Is Just Like The Bible

    There are a lot of foreheads being scratched over at the IFC Center, where "The Catechism Cataclysm" is currently playing. Steve Little stars as Father William, a wayward priest who undergoes a series of blood-soaked trials when he meets up with an old friend and strays from the Word of the Lord. Director Todd Rohal, who has since moved on to "The Scoutmasters" with Johnny Knoxville, Patton Oswalt and Rob Riggle, has made a film that we described as "an unforgettable and indescribable curio," and we sat down with Little to discuss what it all means.

    TV Review: Gus Van Sant (!) Directs Kelsey Grammer in "Boss"

    It’s one thing to know where the bodies are buried and another to know how to use that information. The best dramas about political thugs - and they are a fascinating breed - show us the behind-the scenes payoffs, blackmail schemes and turns of the screw that a politico uses to wield his power. So far the new Starz series Boss, with Kelsey Grammer as Tom Kane, the corrupt mayor of Chicago (I guess Chicago is so used to charges of corruption, using its real name isn’t even an insult) comes through with those sinister, twisty plots.

    Marvel Demotes 'The Punisher' To TV With Fox Pilot Commitment

    When we last talked to Ray Stevenson, star of "Punisher: War Zone," he revealed that the rights to the character, adapted into financially unsuccessful movies by New World Pictures, Artisan and Lionsgate, had returned to Marvel. He suggested there were plans to utilize the brand again, and that he may be involved. We're not sure about that last part, but the character is set to appear again, this time on Fox television. Because what better place for a trigger-happy, murdering vigilante than the home of Animation Domination?

    With the Arab Spring slowly beginning a sea change over the non-democratic rule of the many of the oil rich nations in the Middle East, the timing for Jean-Jacques Annaud’s epic "Black Gold" is fortuitous. While the history of oil in the Middle East is definitely complex, Annaud will take viewers right back to the beginning to when the resource was first discovered burbling underneath the sand.

    Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah' Might Look Like This: New Pictures From The Graphic Novel Arrive

    Darren Aronofsky has been talking about "Noah," his planned big-budget version of the classical Biblical tale of the man chosen to carry on life after God wipes the slate clean, for years now, but for a long time it seemed like an far-off dream project; he'd never had a major box office hit, and no one seemed likely to put down a few $100 million for something not involving superheroes. But the success of "Black Swan," which made back twenty times its budget, has changed things, and the film now has a home thanks to Paramount and New Regency, and a shoot planned for next spring.
