    Paul Walker Sought To Take Lead Role In 'District B-13' Remake 'Brick Mansions'

    David Belle Will Reprise His Role From The Original FilmWhile Paul Walker has had an incredible career despite possessing the charisma of a park bench, he really wasn't going anywhere until the 'Fast and Furious' franchise picked him back up for the fourth installment in the series. Were it not for the fourth film's mammoth box office take (soon eclipsed by the monstrous performance of the fifth film), Walker was well on his way to fronting a sea of direct-to-DVD efforts, and not performing death-defying car stunts for action fans worldwide. Being the co-lead for a movie that makes $626 million worldwide does seem to open doors that previousl...

    First Look At Luc Besson's Aung San Suu Kyi Biopic 'The Lady'; David Thewlis Joins Cast

    Film Is Being Made Without Aung San Suu Kyi's PermissionAung San Suu Kyi has become an icon for democratic freedom. After spending fifteen years under house arrest in Burma after leading the National League for Democracy in an election victory of the ruling military junta in 1990, her struggle gained international attention and last month, she was finally released from house arrest. That's a pretty simple summary for a battle that over the years has mobilized student groups, human rights advocates and more as they leaned on Burma (and any corporations doing business with the nation) to do the right thing and recognize the injustice being perp...
