    Eddie Murphy Turned Brett Ratner On To The Classic Heist Films Before Making 'Tower Heist'

    And More From The Director & Cast Of The High Concept ComedyIn Brett Ratner’s “Tower Heist,” Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy lead an ensemble cast in a story of wronged hotel employees who decide to seek revenge against a ruthless financial world maven who has run off with their pensions. A comedy, heist flick and even a triumphant middle finger to the swindlers that put many out of house and home (though the filmmakers say the ties to current events were unintentional), the film is a crowd-pleasing confection about the little guys finally getting one over on those in authority. A solid supporting cast including Alan Alda, Tea Leoni, Casey Affle...

    Russell Brand Out, Ben Stiller In For 'Rentaghost'

    In Hollywood, you're only as good as your last movie, and with Russell Brand's first bonafide leading man vehicle "Arthur" opening at number three this spring and then fading fast from theaters, it seems some heat has fallen off Mr. Katy Perry. Meanwhile, Ben Stiller continues to be a moneymaker (at least when you stick him in mainstream fare). "Little Fockers," as wretched as it was, still made over $300 million worldwide. "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian"? More than $400 million around the globe. So it's no surprise that the folks behind the gestating movie version of the TV show "Rentaghost" would prefer one name much more t...

    Ben Stiller May Take A 'Neighborhood Watch' With Akiva Schaffer Offered Director's Chair

    2010 gave us two sides of Ben Stiller. We saw him in the excellent Noah Baumbach film "Greenberg" and watched him slum it in the absolutely dreadful "Little Fockers," Now, halfway through 2011, the actor is deciding what he'll do after he's finished up Brett Ratner's sort-of-promising ensemble comed...
