    Spike Lee Says 'Red Hook Summer' Isn't A Sequel To 'Do The Right Thing'

    Clarke Peters from 'The Wire,' Nate Parker And Other Cast Members RevealedDirector, writer, actor, producer and prolific Twitter presence Spike Lee isn't shy about speaking his mind. But when it comes to his next effort, "Red Hook Summer," he's been playing it very coy. What we know thus far is the film finished shooting in August and will be “Burning Up Da Summer 2012!.” The story will center on an adult from Atlanta who spends a summer in the titular hood. And oh yeah, Lee will be reprising his character of Mookie from "Do The Right Thing." However, don't expect Radio Raheem to be making an appearance.

    Scheduling Forces Justin Lin Out Of 'The Terminator' For Now; 2 Films Planned

    James Cameron Convinced To Join Brainstorming Sessions, But Not Officially InvolvedWhile it the success of "Fast Five" has put Justin Lin on the hot list for movie projects around town, things just haven't quite been going his way this summer. While he's been wishlisted/shortlisted for projects like "The Wolverine" and "Die Hard 5" he has turned down those opportunities, and last month he exited the "Highlander" remake he had been attached to for a couple of years. All of this was with his eye firmly on a new 'Terminator' movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger, but alas, it looks like the stars won't aligning for him to work on the project.

    Screen Gems To Remake TIFF Midnight Madness Hit 'The Raid' Without Original Director

    At this year's Toronto International Film Festival, which proved relatively quiet in terms of breakout hits, one film has dominated the buzz among genre-fans: Indonesian actioner "The Raid." Focusing on a SWAT team attempting to take out a mobster in a tenement, and directed by ex-pat Welsh helmer Gareth Huw Evans, it's apparently an ultra-violent, breathless, stripped-down, genre classic, with some viewers drawing comparisons to "Die Hard" -- high praise indeed. (Watch the trailer below for a hint of what to expect).
