    'Maleficent' Starring Angelina Jolie Takes March 14, 2014 Release Date

    If ain't broke, don't fix it. While "John Carter" and "Mars Needs Moms" didn't exactly match the billion dollar success of Disney's 2010 spring entry "Alice In Wonderland," the studio is sticking with March as their early season tentpole date, and are ho...

    Angelina Jolie Says She'll Make Sleeping Beauty Reboot 'Maleficent' Next

    Given her omnipresence in the media, it's easy to forget that Angelina Jolie hasn't actually appeared on screen for eighteen months, since the ill-fated "The Tourist." She's not been idle -- far from it, with voice work in "Kung Fu Panda 2" and her directorial debut &...

    Disney Taps Newb Directors For Angelina Jolie's 'Maleficent,' & Alps Adventure Film, 'Matterhorn'

    Everyone’s gotta start somewhere. And when you're starting out, you’re cheaper and easier to control, right? The fiscally responsible trends continue in Hollywood: hiring cheap, inexpensive filmmakers to helm tentpole-like pictures. And/or you can look at it in the glass half-full wa...

    Can Will Smith Keep Shawn Levy Interested In Directing 'Fantastic Voyage'?

    Levy Considering A Frankenstein Flick & 'Maleficent' In case "At The Mountains Of Madness," "The Dark Tower" and "The Lone Ranger" haven't tipped you off, these days studios are more wary than ever about the coin they spend. It's an irony considering that only tent-pole fare seems to get greenlit these days, but even then, expensive, costly gambles like "Cowboys & Aliens" are projects no movie executive can afford to make. Which brings us to "Fantastic Voyage." Produced by James Cameron, and set to be in 3D, the hot project found a number of directors circli...

    Guillermo del Toro Would Also Like To Direct ‘Maleficent’ (If Given The Chance)

    Guillermo del Toro might be distinguishable to many for his rotund physique, but he’s better known these days, production-wise at least, for stretching himself too thin. Since his last film -- 2008’s “Hellboy II: The Golden Army” -- he famously hotfooted it from “The Hobbit” over a year ago, citing production delays even before MGM declared bankruptcy, though he’s yet to get started on a new project, even as Peter Jackson’s two-part epic began production earlier in the year. Conventional logic would dictate that del Toro’s long overdue for getting a Spanish-language “one for me” out of his system along the lines of “The Devil’s Backbone” and ...
