    First Look: Johnny Depp Gets Mustachioed & Debonair In Spy Thriller Comedy 'Mortdecai'

    Johnny Depp is a man of many faces, costumes, hairdos and appearances, obviously. His visages basically fall into two camps 1) looking like Johnny Depp’s “movie guy lead character” (i.e. that sort of generic look from “Transcendence” with those same round glasses he uses in so many of his “normal” r...

    'Secret Window' Pair Johnny Depp & David Koepp Reteaming For Comedy Crime Flick 'Mortdecai'

    You would think that after the flop of "The Lone Ranger," Johnny Depp would ride toward something safer, but the thing is, with "Pirates Of The Caribbean 5" and "Alice In Wonderland 2" both brewing over at Disney, he's got no shortage of paycheck, easy money gigs to cash in on. So instead, he's taki...

    Premium Rush—movie review

    I don’t know how a film this entertaining and expertly-made can show up the last week of summer, but I’m not complaining. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, whose fine work in indie films like 'The Lookout' went ignored by most moviegoers, has finally achieved stardom, and this flashy tale of a bicycle messenger...

    Review: 'Premium Rush' Sputters To The Finish Line

    In an age where green screen is over-utilized, and costs are managed by shooting in the Midwest, Canada, or even Eastern Europe, there’s something classy and maybe even downright quaint about a film entirely set on the streets of New York City. Permit restrictions have long ended the days of most lo...

    David Koepp To Write Johnny Depp's 'The Thin Man' Remake

    With "The Lone Ranger" not so much riding into the sunset as being shot dead at high noon by the folks over at Disney, Johnny Depp will have to find something else to do and seems to be using the new space in his calendar to get one of the many projects he has in development moving.

    'Jack Ryan' Reboot Film, 'Moscow,' Getting David Koepp Rewrite (How Many Writers Has This Had Now?)

    Jesus, how many screenwriters does it take to screw in a lightbulb, errr, get a screenplay to a proper place that studio and stars are happy with? In the case of the Jack Ryan reboot -- you remember that franchise, "The Hunt For Red October," "Patriot Games," "Clear and Present Danger," "The Sum Of ...

    'Men In Black 3' Starting To Sound Like A $200 Million Train Wreck

    Film Greenlit With Only One Act Of The Script Ready; New Writer David Koepp Refusing To Talk To Producer Walter Parkes Considering how tricky the genre is to pull off, the original "Men in Black" still stands as one of the more successful stabs at the sci-fi comedy. It's no "Galaxy Quest" or anything, and it derails a bit in the third act, but for the most part it was inventive, genuinely funny and starred a central pair with perfect chemistry. 2002's sequel? Not so much; a bloated, unfunny mess that failed to capture pretty much any of what worked in the original. A third film is, belatedly, on the way, but a fascinating look at the behind ...
