    Lee Daniels & Hugh Jackman Will Try Teaming Again On MLK Assassination Film 'Orders To Kill'

    Try as they might, so far, Lee Daniels and Hugh Jackman just haven't been able to make a movie together. Over two years ago, the actor was lining up to play segregation enforcer Sheriff Jim Clark in the director's civil rights tale "Selma," which never was able to get in front...

    Lee Daniels, Hugh Jackman Teaming To Tackle MLK Assassination Conspiracy Theories In 'Orders To Kill'

    This is interesting... So Lee Daniels apparently couldn't get his original MLK project off the ground (titled Selma, which had David Oyelowo starring), and has switched gears, still staying on the MLK course, but this time teaming with Hugh Jackman (who was also attached to Selma), to take ...

    'Take Shelter' Helmer Jeff Nichols To Direct Biopic 'The Boy Who Played With Fusion'

    If there has been single characteristic that has marked Jeff Nichols' three films to date (and we're aware we're being a bit reductive here), it's that they usually center on extraordinary stories that take place in the most unlikely, everyday settings. From a familial feud to an imp...

    New Images From Laurent Cantet's 'Foxfire,' Francois Ozon's 'In The House,' Isabelle Huppert In 'Dormant Beauty' & More

    Though we got it once before as a 1992 Annette Haywood-Carter film starring a young Angelina Jolie and (eventual) Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis, there's certainly room for improvement.

    The last few actioners in Jason Statham's CV have been pretty disappointing, box office-wise. But can you blame the audience? It's hard to find the proper enemy for the musclebound Brit, with him taking out Aiden GIllen in "Blitz," smacking up faceless mafia goons in "Safe" and eating Clive Owen's l...
