    D.J. Caruso To Helm Sci-Fi Disaster Pic 'Invertigo,' Set For March 7, 2014 Release

    The story of excitable, if journeyman-level director D.J. Caruso is a long one, with him starting off his career with moodier fare like “The Salton Sea” and the far less impressive “Taking Lives,” before eventually delving into young-adult-prone projects like “Vertigo,&...

    New 'Man Of Steel' Logo Looks Like Slightly Edgier Superman Logo

    Here's a shocker. The new logo for Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman movie, "Man Of Steel" looks...wait for it...just like the iconic Superman "S." You know, the same one that's been on the iconic superhero's chest since his inception in 1932 (albeit, somewhat modif...

    F. Gary Gray On Short List Of 3 Directors To Helm "Captain America" Sequel; What Are His Chances?

    I love that some of the directors whose names I mentioned in my "Pondering The Dismal Outlook For Black Directors In Hollywood" piece a couple of weeks ago (read it here), have been announced as being attached, or in consideration for feature projects since that piece ran; like Gina P...

    Colin Farrell Leaves Camelot, Won’t Be Starring In David Dobkin’s ‘Arthur & Lancelot’

    If 2011 was the year when big studios wizened up and shelved big expensive tent poles, then 2012 is the year that those same studios are cutting costs to resurrect a handful of the projects including “Wedding Crashers” helmer David Dobkin’s “Arthur & Lancelot.” Whil...

    Hey y'all! How 'bout those "Hunger Games," huh? Obviously, everyone and their mom went last weekend to the child murder games, and we'll see if it has legs to keep going (we think it does), so if you have to catch up on that one, it is in theaters this weekend!

    Director Ken Loach has always strived for realism in his socially-conscious films, so it's no surprise that his next project is a documentary about socialism. Enjoying the most prolific decade of his long career, the 75-year-old director's last film, the 2010 drama-thriller "Route Irish...
