This means Reeves has beaten the likes of Guillermo del
Toro, Jeff Nichols and J. Blakeson in taking over the
sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes which Rupert
Wyatt successfully helmed in 2011. Rumor has it that
Wyatt has been replaced because of refusing to adhere
to a May 2014 release date.
While there's always been plenty of buzz surrounding
Matt Reeves, it's hard to say whether or not he's worth
it. Sure, 2008's Cloverfield was impressive and there's
no doubting that Let Me In, in spite of being a remake,
gave American audiences the first decent vampire film
since Interview with the Vampire. But what else has he
done, other than promise an eventual sequel for
Cloverfield (which may or may not even happen).
Matt Reeves has actually just been doing exactly that –
garnering more and more buzz. He's been rumored to
direct the film version of The Twilight Zone, a
Frankenstein feature titled The Dark Endeavor, and his
own dream project titled The Invisible Woman. Perhaps
with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Reeves will finally
produce a convincing film that gives his other projects
the green light.
The point is that you never know with Matt Reeves, and
there may be another chapter in this story yet, folks. Be
sure to keep checking back for updates.
watching the new international trailer for Sylvester
Stallone's upcoming action flick, Bullet to the Head.
Bullet to the Head will star Stallone as Jimmy Bobo, a
retired mercenary who is forced back into action when
his daughter is kidnapped. Bobo pairs up with Taylor
Kwon, played by Sung Kang, who's partner was killed by
the very same man that kidnaps Bobo's daughter.
On one hand, it's great to see ol' Sly Stallone still moving
around like he's on the set of First Blood. The guy is in
fantastic shape in spite of his age. It's also somewhat
refreshing to see that studios are still picking up a genre
of film – "action," or "buddy cop" – that seemingly died
off for no reason in the early 2000's.
On the other hand, it's difficult to comprehend why a
studio would allow Stallone and director Walter Hill to
remake a movie so eerily similar to Taken, minus the
charm, wisdom and articulation of Liam Neeson. It's also
vaguely sad that a genre that died out in the early
2000's still has a considerable market. It's hard to
appreciate them outside the realm of nostalgia. Just look
at films like The Expendables and its sequel to confirm
that in some movies, script, plot, and acting ability has
very little to no bearing whatsoever.
In any case, Bullet to the Head will hit theatres February
2013. All you action junkies will just have to revisit your
Schwarzenegger and Stallone collections until then. Or,
enjoy the trailer here, courtesy of MSN.
conclusion of the Hunger Games franchise. The final
book of the Hunger Games trilogy will be split into two

HBO's Game Change. He's also known for HBO's
Recount about the 2000 presidential election. Upcoming
writer creds include the latest Dan Brown movie
adaption, The Lost Symbol, and Lee Daniel's drama
about a White House employee, The Butler.
The final installment of the Suzanne Collin's novels
focuses on Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in
hiding with fellow rebels as they plot to fight back from
the oppressive Panem government led by President
Snow (Donald Sutherland).
While Strong's writing resume of doesn't exactly vibe
with the futuristic and violent young adult novels, his
overall success is very reassuring. As long as Katniss
Everdeen doesn't turn out anything like the real Sarah
Palin, inspiration for his Game Change success, he
should do just fine.
new photos feature both Iron Patriot, the new Mark
XLVII armor and Robert Downey Jr. back to work after
suffering an injury.
These photo were taken Monday, on a beach-side
restaurant called Neptune's Net, in Miami. The
restaurant was fixed up by set builders to replicate the
well know fish-fry bar in Malibu, California, which is
frequented by bikers.
Filming continues after several rain delays and lead
actor Downey, who was recovering from an ankle injury
he sustained. According to reports, the actor picked up
right where he left off, clowning around, drawing laughs
from the cast and crew.
Downey is suited in the Mark XLVII Iron Man suit (in the
movie built with new nano technology) and Don Cheadel
dons the Iron Patriot Iron Man suit. This film is directed
by Shank Black. Gwyneth Paltrow, Jon Favreau, Ben
Kingsley, Guy Pearce, James Badge Dale, Ashley
Hamilton and Rebecca Hall will make up the remainder
of the star studded cast.

and other cast members to her fans.
The photo that Winfrey shared was accompanied by the

And THAT's a Wrap! Terrance Howard and me in

the great experience. #theButler
The Butler centers around Eugene Allen, a butler who
worked at the White House from 1952 to 1986, serving
under eight presidents. The movie is based on an article
written about Eugene's life story by Wil Haygood. Allen
started working at the White House at a time when black
people were still discriminated against.
The film features a long list of impressive stars such as
Winfrey, Forest Whitaker, David Oyelowo, Matthew
McConaughey, John Cusack, Alan Rickman, Terence
Howard, Cuba Good Jr., Jane Fonda, Nicole Kidman,
Lenny Kravitz, Colman Domingo, Pernell Walker, Minka
Kelly, Jess Williams and Robin Williams.
The Weinstein Company recently acquired the USA
distribution rights to The Butler, and it is slated for a
miniseries "Hatfields & McCoys," Kevin Costner
has signed on to a new Secret Service action film from
scribes Luc Besson and Adi Hasak. Director McG
(Charlie's Angels, Terminator Salvation) has also signed
up to direct. The untitled thriller is being produced by
Relativity Media and EuropeCorp, which are also
teaming on the crime-drama Malavita (coming in 2013).
The Hollywood Reporter states the project "explores a
story about Secret Service agent Ethan Runner, who
discovers he's dying and decides to retire in order to
reconnect with his estranged family. But when the
Secret Service offers him access to an experimental
drug that could save his life in exchange for one last
assignment, he soon finds himself trying to juggle his
family, his mission and the drug's hallucinatory side
This latest flick is the third action-thriller in production to
center around the Secret Service, alongside White
House Down starring Channing Tatum and Olympus Has
Fallen with Gerard Butler. Both of those films center on a
hostage situation in the White House, whereas this
project appears to center on Costner's agent and a
separate mission away from Washington D.C.
Besson will also produce, adding yet another writing and
production credit to his resume. His past credits from
this year alone include the sci-fi thriller Lockout and the
action sequel Taken 2. Costner, whose last lead role on
the big screen was in the 2008 comedy Swing Vote, will
hopefully receive a career renaissance as an
experienced action hero à la Liam Neeson in the Taken
movies. And McG, who is collaborating with Besson for
the first time, is probably hoping for a career surge as
well. His last film, the action-romance This Means War,
received scathing reviews and disappointed at the U.S.
box office, accumulating $54 million on a $65-million
budget. Both are represented by WME.
Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj hating each other are true.
According to TMZ, Minaj snapped and cursed out Carey
during a recent audition. After a disagreement over a
contestant's peformance, Minaj said:
"I told them, I'm not fucking putting up with her
fucking highness over there."
The her in question is apparently Carey. During Minaj's
rant, Mariah kept her cool and said...well, it's not clear
what she was saying but it sounded calm. Meanwhile,
Keith Urban just sits there, thinking who knows what.
Minaj also reportedly threatened to "knock out" Mariah
later, although that part isn't on tape. I guess if there
was ever a reason to watch American Idol, this is it.
Here's TMZ's transcript of the incident:
Nicki Get this s**t in self control. Get in control. Get in
Randy: Settle down, settle down
Nicki: Don't lose your head. Don't lose your head
(inaudible). Don't tell me I'm a gangster.
Nicki: (inaudible) every 5 minutes. So every time you
patronize me, I'm-ma take it back, and if you've got a
f**king problem, handle it.
Nicki: I told them I'm not f**kin' putting up with her
f**king highness over there. Figure it the f**k out.
Figure it out.
Nicki: I'm not gonna sit here every f**king minute to
have you come down and harass me every minute
