    Point/Counterpoint Review: 'Edge Of Tomorrow' Starring Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt And Bill Paxton

    Masks have always fascinated Tom Cruise. There are masks in "Minority Report," "Eyes Wide Shut," and "Vanilla Sky," and they serve a key purpose in all four "Mission: Impossible" movies (movies, it just so happens, that Cruise also produces). In films like "Interview with the Vampire," "Valkyrie" an...

    Doug Liman To Direct Tom Cruise In Comedy 'El Presidente', Jack Nicholson Courted To Co-Star

    When we last reported on "El Presidente," the high concept buddy movie about a clean cut Secret Service agent and the disheveled, alcoholic schlub of an ex-president he's assigned to protect, Tom Cruise was loosely attached, as was directed "Recount" director Jay Roach, with Robert Downey, Jr. being...

    Tom Cruise Circling Doug Liman's Sci-Fi Actioner 'We Mortals Are' (Formerly 'All You Need Is Kill')

    Tom Cruise is on the comeback trail in a big way. The star, for nearly two decades Hollywood's untouchable golden boy, has had a rough half-decade, grabbing the wrong kind of headlines for some bizarre public behavior and starring in a string of domestic disappointments; "Lions for Lambs," "Valkyrie...

    Doug Liman Will Climb 'Everest' With Script From 'Up In The Air' Writer Sheldon Turner

    With his last effort, the political drama "Fair Game" dropping last fall, director Doug Liman has spent most of 2011 figuring out what to do next and he's had no shortage of options. But unfortunately, he's been hit with a bit of bad luck. While for a moment there it seemed like his ambitious and long-gestating sci-fi flick "Luna" would be getting off the ground, just last week word arrived that financing had collapsed, effectively killing the project. In the same report it appeared that Warner Bros. was wanting to move ahead with "All You Need Is Kill" but that was contingent on a big star, and while WB wanted Brad Pitt, that's not really ne...

    Bradley Cooper & Chris Evans Join List Of Contenders For Doug Liman's 'Luna'

    Financing In Place, As Film Gets Fast-Tracked At DreamWorksThe summer movie season is upon us and it's easy to forget that there are movies being developed at the major studios are aren't sequels, based on a comic or toy or spun-off a previous film or television show. In the works for years, the long-gestating space film by Doug Liman -- now titled "Luna" -- has been inching forward in fits and starts for the past while. Originally with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead, who later left the project, it sputtered back to life this past spring when a wealth of names were said to be contending for the open role including Andrew Garfield, Emile Hirsch a...

    Doug Liman, Mark Romanek, James Mangold & Antoine Fuqua Reportedly Top The 'Wolverine' Wishlist

    Other Directors Apparently In Contention For The Gig Include, Justin Lin, Jose Padilha, Gavin O'Connor & Gary Shore20th Century Fox has a history and it's not always a good one. While Darren Aronofsky left "The Wolverine" project under the pretenses of family obligations, it's been reported that "Black Swan" director left the project due to lack of creative control. That coupled with the fact that Matthew Vaughn seems to have been put through the ringer by the studio on "X-Men: First Class" -- he was super rushed, was forced to use five different cinematographers, had to switch assistant directors and didn't know who his crew was on certain d...
