    First Poster & New Images Arrive For Walter Salles' Long-Awaited 'On The Road' With Sam Riley, Garret Hedlund & Kristen Stewart

    It's been a long journey to get "On The Road" to the screen. The beatnik classic by Jack Kerouac was never going to be an easy translation, but Francis Ford Coppola initially bought the rights over thirty years ago, and worked on the project for decades before eventually handing over t...

    Nicole Kidman In Talks To Star In Rowan Joffe's Psychological Thriller 'Before I Go To Sleep'

    Great performances from Nicole Kidman are generally years apart nowadays, partly because she's not as prolific as she use to be. But with Park Chan-wook's "Stoker" and Lee Daniel's "The Paperboy" both due out later in the year, 2012 is certainly shaping up to be ...

    Benjamin Walker, Tom Hiddleston, Lily Collins, Bella Heathcote & Jessica Brown Findlay Testing For Akiva Goldsman's 'Winter's Tale'

    While he may draw the critical scorn of fanboys everywhere with even the mention of his name, and rightfully so after penning the screenplays for the weak “Batman Forever” and disastrous “Batman & Robin,” screenwriter Akiva Goldsman still holds a lot of clout in Hollywood.

    While his own films have yet to cross over the awards threshold, Oscar nominations for last year's "Bridesmaids" in the Original Screenplay and Supporting Actress categories signify a new respectability for the comedies of Judd Apatow, the man who more than any other is responsible for the rebirth o...

    Dan Aykroyd Says Bill Murray Won't Do 'Ghostbusters 3,' Says Project Is In 'Suspended Animation,' Although Sony Still Interested

    For over twenty years, Dan Aykroyd has had a dream. A dream of a third film in the "Ghostbusters" franchise. While the 1989 sequel was poorly received, there's been enough love for the seminal original that an interest has always been there, although Aykroyd's 1990s script for a third installment wa...

    Kristen Wiig To Star In Action/Comedy From 'Descendants' Writers Nat Faxon & Jim Rash; 'The Way, Way Back' To Star Sam Rockwell & Allison Janney

    Winning an Oscar Sunday night for Best Adapted Screenplay, for an acclaimed film directed by Alexander Payne and starring ultimate modern movie star George Clooney, probably sounds a lot better in meetings than being the two guys who play outrageous character parts on shows like “Community” and “Par...

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Directorial Debut Now Known As 'Don Jon's Addiction'; 'The Wettest County' & 'He Loves Me' To Be Retitled

    There are certainly some pretty horrible film titles that get churned out on a regular basis, and while they probably mean little in the grand scheme of things, naming a movie is still something Hollywood takes very seriously.
