    Nick Nolte & Tom Waits Circling Drama 'The Low Road,' From 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' Producers

    A slowly creeping phenomenon of 2011 has been the indie drama "Martha Marcy May Marlene." Ever since its debut at Sundance in January, the psychological thriller, which has placed star Elizabeth Olsen as one of the hottest actresses around, has picked up some of the most glowing reviews of the year (read ours from Sundance here), and played virtually every major festival, currently unspooling at Toronto after cropping up at Cannes in the Spring. Joe Public will get their chance to see it when it's released next month, but the company behind Sean Durkin's film are moving onto pastures new, with two projects in the can, and one more gearing up ...

    'Gangster Squad' Adds Nick Nolte

    For a few years there, Nick Nolte seemed lost in the weeds. After "Hotel Rwanda" the actor's work was patchy at best, but he is gearing up one helluva career revival. On HBO he's got a role in Michael Mann and David Milch's forthcoming horse racing world drama "Luck"; he's Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerto...

    Empire Big Screen '11 Review: 'Warrior' Is Silly, Over-Familiar & Enormously Effective

    Considering that it's the fastest rising sport in the world and that it's inherently cinematic in a way that, say, baseball isn't, it's surprising that Hollywood hasn't made greater hay out of mixed martial arts (or MMA). For the newcomer, it's essentially a blend of boxing, wrestling and a good old bar fight, a mix you would have thought would have led to far more movie outings than David Mamet's "Redbelt" and next year's Kevin James (yes, Kevin James) vehicle "Here Comes the Boom." But a movie opening next month, Gavin O'Connor's "Warrior," which we caught today as the first surprise public screening at Empire Big Screen in London, is plant...

    Nick Nolte Joins Jason Statham's 'Parker'

    ...and then there's Nick Nolte, the two-time Academy Award nominee who seemed to be in every movie in the '90s and then hit a weird patch in the aughts where he was less in demand (even though 2002's "The Good Thief" features one of his finest performances), but seems to be be back to his ever-busy ways. While we'll ignore the fact that he was in "Arthur" and "The Zookeeper" this year, he's got the hotly buzzed "Warrior" and the highly anticipated Michael Mann/HBO series "Luck" on the horizon and he recently came aboard the Robert Redford/Shia LaBeouf vehicle "The Company You Keep." And while we may not approve too highly of his next move, hi...

    Nick Nolte In Talks To Add Extra Grizzle To Robert Redford's 'The Company You Keep'

    "The Conspirator" may have been a little dull, despite an excellent cast, but as Robert Redford was the man behind the sublime "Quiz Show," we're always going to pay attention when the star goes behind the camera, and his latest project, "The Company You Keep," sounds particularly interesting: an adaptation of a well regarded novel by Neil Gordon, with a script by "The Limey" writer Lem Dobbs, the film will see Redford play an ex-Weather Underground militant who's exposed by a young journalist (Shia LaBoeuf), and forced to go on the run. And now, Redford's looks to have landed one of his contemporaries for a role in the project, one who'll li...

    Review: A Fat Man, Animals That Sound Like Sitcom Characters & The Terrible 'Zookeeper'

    Early on in “Zookeeper,” Sony’s latest commercially craven piece of garbage from Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison production company, an animal sees two bears fighting. Her response is, “They look like two bean bag chairs!” Ignoring the idea that this character, a giraffe, has probably never even seen a...

    Robert Redford & Nick Nolte To Team On 'A Walk In The Woods'?

    It appears that one of the most enigmatic figures in Hollywood right now is...Robert Redford? Yep, kind of. The legendary actor/director was said to be attached to Brian Helgeland's Jackie Robinson biopic earlier this spring in the role of Branch Rickey, the Brooklyn Dodgers executive who helped the ball player break the color barrier. But the film was picked up by Legendary Pictures earlier today and their press release made no mention or Redford or Rickey at all, with Deadline intimating that that the thesp was not involved. Anyway, 24 Frames is sticking to their story -- sort of -- and even more, they're tossing out another possible Redfor...
