    Exclusive: First Clip & New Pics From William Friedkin's 'Killer Joe' Starring Matthew McConaughey

    While it has been five long years since legendary filmmaker William Friedkin's last film, the underrated psychological thriller "Bug" starring Ashley Judd and Michael Shannon, it seems the director has found a fresh voice and communal spirit in Tracy Letts. The playwright's work served as the source material for "Bug" and Friedkin has once again found inspiration, turning Letts' first play, the black comedy "Killer Joe," into a feature length film.

    David Dobkin's 'Arthur & Lancelot' Gets March 15, 2013 Release Date

    Snow White, Hansel & Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood and now, Arthur and Lancelot. Fables and fairy-tales continue to get Hollywood studio types excited and when Warner Bros. dropped $2 million last month for David Dobkin's "Arthur & Lancelot" they weren't messing around. As is usual, without a cast or firm start date nailed down, the film already has a release date so Dobkin will have to get his motor running.

    Don Cheadle Making Progress With Miles Davis Project...

    "I actually just got off the phone with the studio executives about putting it together. It’s a difficult time to make films, especially ones that don’t have people flying or sequels or cars. We’re struggling through, but it’s going to happen."

    Comic-Con '11: 'Knights of Badassdom' Gets Trailer & First Look Image

    LARP Movie Ruled Hall H With A Foam SwordBeing the geekiest panel at Comic-Con's Hall H takes some work, but for our money, the honor goes to the LARP horror-comedy "Knights of Badassdom" and their Saturday nerdfest. For the uninitiated, LARP stands for "Live Action Role-Play," so picture Dungeons & Dragons with costumes and foam swords on a battlefield off a highway somewhere (you'll recall some of this from the subplot and ending of "Role Models"). Before the panel began, actual LARPers in costume led the audience in a shout of "huzzah!" and director Joe Lynch clearly was in awe of his film's Hall H presence, walking on stage and saying, "Holy shit! Hall H rules!" Clearly ecstatic over being at Comic-Con as a presenter rather than an attendee, he said, "I'm LARPing right now, I'm role-playing, I'm a director. That's what we're trying to get across right now: that you can be someone else."
