    Aaron Sorkin, Gary Oldman & Colin Firth Each Confirm They Are Thinking About Maybe Making Something

    As if the "offer story" wasn't bad enough, the "testing" or "reading for" stories have taken that to a lower standard. And listen, we get it. We've run those things before because a peek behind the curtain is interesting, particularly for high profile projects a...

    Colin Firth Offered The Role Of The Villain Adrian In Spike Lee's 'Oldboy'

    So is regal, respectable, Oscar-winning Colin Firth ready to dirty up that nice guy image? It seems so. He was long attached to Park Chan-wook's English language feature "Stoker" as the baddie before he had to drop out, however, the blockbuster movie world is largely foreign to the act...
