    Eric Bana & Rebecca Hall Starring In Untitled Thriller From 'Boy A' Helmer John Crowley & 'Eastern Promises' Writer Steven Knight

    Despite the idea of the suspense thriller for grown-ups being routinely declared dead, the genre itself refuses to stay dead. Every few months, some such film will quietly make a tidy profit at the box office, despite not gathering the same attention as pictures with more explosions in them. Last ye...

    'Wrath of the Titans' Trailer Debuts

    Warner Bros, not content to merely satisfy fanboys with the awesome new "Dark Knight Rises" trailer, has also unleashed a new tease for a sequel that almost no one demanded: "Wrath of the Titans," the follow-up to 2010's abysmal 3D "Clash of the Titans" remake. And while we're not necessarily excite...

    Ron Howard Rules Out Returning For Third Dan Brown Film 'The Lost Symbol'

    Ron Howard's insanely ambitious "The Dark Tower," a three-film, two-TV series adaptation of Stephen King's epic fantasy series, looks to be pretty much dead: it was delayed in search of budget cuts, before Universal dropped it altogether, and the chances of another studio picking up the slack looks to be slim at this point. But the director, still seen as one of the safest pairs of hands around, hasn't sunk into grief: he's prepping Formula 1 drama "Rush" with Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl, which should shoot at the end of the year, and he's got a number of other projects circling: fantasy actioner "Amnesty," MAD Magazine adaptation "Spy V...

    'Eastern Promises' & 'Dirty Pretty Things' Writer Steven Knight Preps Directing Debut 'Hummingbird'

    It didn't take long for writer Steven Knight to make a big splash in Hollywood, penning scripts that wound up being directed by Stephen Frears ("Dirty Pretty Things"), Michael Apted ("Amazing Grace") and David Cronenberg ("Eastern Promises"). And from there, he quickly found himself writing some very buzzworth projects recently, including the next Dan Brown flick "The Lost Symbol," a Robert Kennedy biopic with Matt Damon attached, a remake of the classic "Le Cercle Rouge" and an "Eastern Promises" sequel (he's also scribed, less promisingly, the sequel to "Clash Of The Titans"). But rather than await around for any of those get made, Knight i...

    Bill Nighy & Danny Huston Confirmed For 'Clash of the Titans 2' As The First Synopsis Arrives

    'Eastern Promises' Scribe Steven Knight Rewrote Script, Gemma Arterton Nowhere To Be SeenIt's almost exactly a year since "Clash of the Titans" opened, overcoming some tough competition, a beyond-shoddy 3D conversion and terrible reviews to pick up a hugely impressive half-billion dollars worldwide. While filming has been underway for a few weeks in the U.K. on the yet-to-be-officially-titled sequel ("Wrath of the Titans" has been bandied about, but never confirmed), Warner Bros has sent out a press release to officially announce the start of principle photography, and it's confirmed a few cast members, as well as giving the first detailed de...
