    James McTeigue To Direct Period Crime Drama 'Ness/Capone' For Relativity

    Former Wachowski Brothers protégé James McTeigue (he directed both "V for Vendetta" and the gory-good "Ninja Assassin" for the Brothers and producer Joel Silver) has apparently made the suits at Relativity happy. The director helmed their forthcoming Edgar Allan Poe thriller "The Raven," and accord...

    Cameron Crowe Has Discussed Possible Sequel To 'Say Anything...' With John Cusack

    At Least He's Not Planning 'Elizabethtown: The Golden Age'Until 1989, Cameron Crowe was known principally as a journalist, who'd also managed to turn his impressive undercover-at-high-school book "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" into one of the best teen films of the decade. But follow-up "The Wild Life" was poorly received, and it took him a while to work in film again. But James L. Brooks (and the late Polly Platt) brought Crowe into their fold, and the result was "Say Anything...," a teen rom-com of rare complexity and feeling, and the film that truly launched John Cusack onto the A-list: for all the great work the actor's done over the year...

    Comic-Con '11: John Cusack Says 'The Raven' "An Art Movie And A Popcorn Movie" Rolled Into One

    As you already know by now, we've been kind of cautiously optimistic about "The Raven." Directed by "V For Vendetta" and "Ninja Assassin" helmer James McTeigue and starring John Cusack, Luke Evans, Brendan Gleeson and Alice Eve, the film takes a interesting twist on the life of poet Edgar Allan Poe ...

    John Cusack To Replace Tobey Maguire In Lee Daniels' 'The Paperboy'

    It's not too long since we last lamented the state of John Cusack's career: long one of our favorite actors, the decade or so since "High Fidelity" has seen at best, enjoyable-but-flawed movies like "Runaway Jury," "The Ice Harvest" or "1408," through to films that were barely released, like "Grace Is Gone" and "The Contract," to, at worst, pictures that were never released, like "Shanghai" and serial killer thriller "The Factory," both shot in 2008, and still sitting on the shelf. But signs are good for a comeback: he's playing Edgar Allan Poe in next year's period thriller "The Raven," he's written another dark comedy the Latin American sat...

    John Cusack Starring In International Screwball Comedy 'Dictablanda'

    Ever since falling deeply in love with "Grosse Point Blank" as a twelve-year-old (followed swiftly by exposure to "Being John Malkovich" and "High Fidelity"), this writer has been firmly in the lifelong-fan-of-John Cusack camp. But being a Cusack fan has become deeply frustrating in recent years. His best performances ("Grace is Gone," "The Ice Harvest") go unsung, his paycheck roles get more and more depressing ("2012," "Hot Tub Time Machine") and his two most recent films, "Shanghai" and "The Factory" haven't been released at all, despite both filming way back in 2008. And that's without even mentioning his Twitter feed, a textbook example ...

    First Official Still Of John Cusack As Robert Downey Jr. As Edgar Allen Poe In 'The Raven'

    So we're going to show our age a little here, but we never actually met Edgar Allen Poe. By all accounts, he was a pretty exciting dude, an accomplished writer and practitioner of cosmology and cryptography. Perhaps Sylvester Stallone, an older gentleman, knew Poe well (trained at the same gyms?), m...
