    Review: 'Pawn Shop Chronicles' Starring Paul Walker, Elijah Wood, Brendan Fraser, Thomas Jane, Matt Dillon, Lukas Haas & More

    There’s an alternate reality somewhere, wherein “Pawn Shop Chronicles” is not released in theaters on July 12th, but instead is projected on the wall of a small, narrow hallway in Comic-Con, never to be heard from again. Somehow, a cast of capable, popular actors show up in what seems like the very ...

    Wayne Kramer To Direct Futuristic 'Ecstasia'

    Wayne Kramer: overrated or underrated? Depends who you ask. He made a name for himself with the indie "The Cooler" and followed it up with post-Tarantino multi-strand Paul Walker thriller "Running Scared" which in this writer's opinion doesn't deserve the cult following the film has. After that, Kramer switched it up again with the political drama "Crossing Over" which found him battling with the Weinsteins who ultimately buried the film. Earlier this year, Kramer was tapped to direct the Sylvester Stallone vehicle "Headshots" but later bowed out over "creative differences" with word that he had his another project brewing that was close to g...

    Sylvester Stallone Thriller 'Headshots' & Steve Carell Comedy 'Burt Wonderstone' Both Lose Directors

    It's got to be hard for a director to walk away from a feature-directing gig. If you're lucky, you get to make a film once every couple of years, and, while some helmers are able to boost their income with rewrite work or commercials, or TV and music videos gigs, sometimes that one feature is your only income. But at the same time, you only get to make a certain number of movies in a career, and if the stars aren't aligning correctly, sometimes the only thing you can do is pack your bags. It's not an uncommon occurence -- Guillermo Del Toro leaving "The Hobbit" and Darren Aronofsky bailing on "The Wolverine" being two recent examples -- and i...

    Sylvester Stallone To Star In Wayne Kramer's 'Headshot'

    Wayne Kramer's career has been a bit of a headscratcher. The director came out of nowhere with "The Cooler," the Sundance sensation that went on to earn Alec Baldwin a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination. Kramer then followed that up with the the pulpy "Running Scared," a ludicrous post-Tarantino tale that is severely overrated by its niche of fans. He then shifted gears again for the "Crash"-aping "Crossing Over" which was ultimately taken out of his hands by Harvey Weinstein and hacked down from its original 2 hour and 20 minute runtime to the version that's out there now. So what will Kramer do next? Well it appears that he's moved on f...
