    Franco Nero Insists Quentin Tarantino Will Be In His Western 'The Angel, The Brute, And The Wise'

    Way back at the beginning of the year, there was a bit of excitement and confusion when legendary Italian actor Franco Nero said he was making a spaghetti western with Quentin Tarantino titled "The Angel, the Brute and the Wise." Many assumed the latter was directing the film -- which Nero said would also star Keith Carradine and Treat Williams -- however it soon transpired that Tarantino was directing a spaghetti western of sorts, "Django Unchained," and that "The Angel, the Brute and the Wise" was something else entirely. Anyway, as talk of Tarantino's slavery vengeance pic heated up, everyone pretty much forgot about Nero's project but he ...

The technology might have been primitive compared to what's being used these days, but 2003's "Spy Kids 3D: Game Over" was the first wide 3D release in literally decades, predating the work o...

    SXSW '11 Trailer: 'Blacktino' With Danny Trejo, Jeff Fahey, More

    SXSW gets underway in just a few weeks with an especially stacked film lineup this year, from more high profile premieres (“Source Code,” “The Beaver,” “Paul”) to festival favorites from Sundance and TIFF (“Win Win,” “Beginners,” “Being Elmo: A Puppeteers Journey”). For more homegrown fare, the fest has its “Lone Star States” category for films made in or about Texas which is kicking off the festival with “blacktino” by first-time filmmaker Aaron Burns. The indie coming-of-age film may sound slightly familiar to some due to a viral stunt late last year for “Citizen Jane,” supposedly an action packed remake of Orson Welles classic “Citizen Kan...

    Actress Says 'Sin City' Sequel Is "Only A Matter Of Time"Jessica Alba, the newest addition to the "Little Fockers" cast, is a little loopy and a little candid.
