Later this year, he'll unveil his next effort "Youn...

    We Read It: Casting Quentin Tarantino's Slavery/Spaghetti Western Epic 'Django Unchained'

    You’ll recall in 2008 we did, what we thought, was a very good job of casting Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” (some of us are still convinced our picks were better than Q.T.’s, but that’s another story). And unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Tarantino has recently fini...

    'A Serious Man' Star Michael Stuhlbarg Joins The Still-Filming 'Men in Black 3'

    The ugly portrait of Hollywood stupidity and hubris -- "hey, we'll figure out the script on set, no problem!" -- is a slightly antiquated one given the rise of successful improvisation, not only in comedy which was the norm, but big-budget narrative (see "Iron Man" where Jon Favreau and co. literally figured out scenes moments before they were shot), but can still be occasionally framed as a cautionary tale. See the latest example: "Men In Black 3" or "Men In Black 3D" whatever you want to call it. Sony's very expensive tentpole revival 10 years after the fact ("MIB2" was released in 2002) has been shooting on and off since December and is st...

    Josh Brolin Creeps Us Out As Young Tommy Lee Jones In 'Men In Black 3'

    It's good to see that Will Smith can still smile considering "Men In Black 3" has gone through a troubled production period that has seen a rotating number of writers trying to get the script up to par, not to mention a budget that is now soaring north of $200 million. But that's not what we're here...

    'Men In Black 3' Starting To Sound Like A $200 Million Train Wreck

    Film Greenlit With Only One Act Of The Script Ready; New Writer David Koepp Refusing To Talk To Producer Walter Parkes Considering how tricky the genre is to pull off, the original "Men in Black" still stands as one of the more successful stabs at the sci-fi comedy. It's no "Galaxy Quest" or anything, and it derails a bit in the third act, but for the most part it was inventive, genuinely funny and starred a central pair with perfect chemistry. 2002's sequel? Not so much; a bloated, unfunny mess that failed to capture pretty much any of what worked in the original. A third film is, belatedly, on the way, but a fascinating look at the behind ...

    Brad Pitt Confirmed For Andrew Dominik's 'Cogan's Trade'

    Filming Begins In Louisiana In MarchOf all the projects announced in 2010 -- "The Dark Knight Rises," the untitled Terence Malick, "Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son" -- none excited us quite as much as "Cogan's Trade." The long-awaited return of Andrew Dominik -- who made a scorching debut with "Chopper" before returning with one of the best, if not the best, film of the decade in "The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford" -- is an adaptation of the pulp crime novel by George V. Higgins (the author of "The Friends Of Eddie Coyle,)" about a mob enforcer trying to track down the thieves who ripped off a high stakes card game....

    Review: 'True Grit' An Old-Fashioned Oater Only The Coens Could Make

    Judging by some of the early reviews of "True Grit" you would think that the Coens had left their bag of tricks at home when making the film, delivering a respectful if overly formal western. However, it seems those reviewers who got an early look forgot that the Coens are often found at the height of their creative powers when operating with a genre milieu. Take "Miller's Crossing," "The Hudsucker Proxy" or "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" -- all films with giant nods to filmmakers of yore, yet each imbued with the Coens' own distinctive thematic obsessions: this all continues with "True Grit." Wickedly funny, undeniably compelling and yes, touc...
