    Watch: Jason Statham Shows His Acting Chops In Trailer For Steven Knight's 'Hummingbird'

    Jason Statham's known for pretty much one thing: cracking heads. From "The Transporter" to his most recent film "Parker," if you see his big bald mug on the poster, you can be pretty sure that the film's going to involve the actor kicking seven shades of shit out of anyone and everyone that crosses ...

    Tom Hardy To Star In Steven Knight's Shot-In-Real-Time Thriller 'Locke,' Produced By 'Anna Karenina' Director Joe Wright

    It feels like it's been quite a long time since we saw Tom Hardy on screen. But in fact, he's been working consistently, with five films in the last eighteen months, and the actor's such a chameleon that it's hard to draw a line between Ricky Tarr in "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and Bane in "The Dark...

    'Eastern Promises' Sequel Moves Forward With Vincent Cassel Joining Viggo Mortensen, David Cronenberg Will Direct

    Over the last five years or so, reports have kept cropping up of a relatively unlikely sequel: a follow-up to 2007's gangster thriller "Eastern Promises," which was directed by David Cronenberg, and starred Viggo Mortensen as a heavily tattooed low-level Russian mobster who helps a nur...

    Jim Broadbent Joins Eric Bana & Rebecca Hall In John Crowley's Untitled Thriller, Because Jim Broadbent Is In Everything

    It's a little known fact, but in the mid 1980s, in a bid to fight underemployment in certain aspects of the entertainment industry, the British government passed the Broadbent Act, which set up a quota that one in four British movies would have to cast British character actor favorite Jim Broadb...

    Remake Of Alfred Hitchcock's 'Rebecca' In The Works, 'Eastern Promises' Scribe Steven Knight To Pen The Screenplay

    Hollywood just can't get enough of Alfred Hitchock. With two movies about the man in the works -- "Alfred Hitchcock And The Making of Psycho" with Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren and "The Girl" with Toby Jones and Sienna Miller -- along with brewing "Psycho" preque...

    Eric Bana & Rebecca Hall Starring In Untitled Thriller From 'Boy A' Helmer John Crowley & 'Eastern Promises' Writer Steven Knight

    Despite the idea of the suspense thriller for grown-ups being routinely declared dead, the genre itself refuses to stay dead. Every few months, some such film will quietly make a tidy profit at the box office, despite not gathering the same attention as pictures with more explosions in them. Last ye...

    'Wrath of the Titans' Trailer Debuts

    Warner Bros, not content to merely satisfy fanboys with the awesome new "Dark Knight Rises" trailer, has also unleashed a new tease for a sequel that almost no one demanded: "Wrath of the Titans," the follow-up to 2010's abysmal 3D "Clash of the Titans" remake. And while we're not necessarily excite...

    Ron Howard Rules Out Returning For Third Dan Brown Film 'The Lost Symbol'

    Ron Howard's insanely ambitious "The Dark Tower," a three-film, two-TV series adaptation of Stephen King's epic fantasy series, looks to be pretty much dead: it was delayed in search of budget cuts, before Universal dropped it altogether, and the chances of another studio picking up the slack looks to be slim at this point. But the director, still seen as one of the safest pairs of hands around, hasn't sunk into grief: he's prepping Formula 1 drama "Rush" with Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl, which should shoot at the end of the year, and he's got a number of other projects circling: fantasy actioner "Amnesty," MAD Magazine adaptation "Spy V...

    'Eastern Promises' & 'Dirty Pretty Things' Writer Steven Knight Preps Directing Debut 'Hummingbird'

    It didn't take long for writer Steven Knight to make a big splash in Hollywood, penning scripts that wound up being directed by Stephen Frears ("Dirty Pretty Things"), Michael Apted ("Amazing Grace") and David Cronenberg ("Eastern Promises"). And from there, he quickly found himself writing some very buzzworth projects recently, including the next Dan Brown flick "The Lost Symbol," a Robert Kennedy biopic with Matt Damon attached, a remake of the classic "Le Cercle Rouge" and an "Eastern Promises" sequel (he's also scribed, less promisingly, the sequel to "Clash Of The Titans"). But rather than await around for any of those get made, Knight i...
