Men in Black 3 gets a release date

Posted by LiveFor on May 7, 2010

It is all going ahead. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are back with Josh Brolin playing a young Agent Kay. Not sure if this will be flashbacks or whether Tommy Lee Jones gets youngified.

I just hope it is better than the second film.

Columbia Pictures announced today that Men in Black III will be released in 3D on May 25, 2012. Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are returning to produce and Barry Sonnenfeld, who directed the first two installments of the blockbuster franchise, will direct the film from a screenplay written by Etan Cohen, based on the comic book by Lowell Cunningham. Steven Spielberg is set to executive produce.

Deals are set for Will Smith, Sonnenfeld and the producing team to return to the blockbuster franchise with the intent to begin production by this fall and the studio is in advanced negotiations with Tommy Lee Jones to reprise his role as Agent Kay. Josh Brolin is also in talks to star as a young Agent Kay.

Commenting on the announcement, Jeff Blake, Chairman of Sony Pictures Worldwide Marketing and Distribution said, “Sony’s summer of 2012 will get off to a red hot start with an incredible new 3D adventure for the Men in Black. We couldn’t be more excited that the original filmmaking team responsible for the first two worldwide hits is reuniting for this third installment. We love where the story is taking Agents Jay and Kay and know this new chapter will deliver a fresh fun twist for fans of the franchise while also introducing the Men in Black to a whole new generation of moviegoers.”

The first two Men in Black films, which were released in 1997 and 2002, went on to become two of the most successful films in Columbia Pictures history, taking in more than $1 billion combined worldwide. The first film in the franchise won an Academy Award(r) for Best Makeup and was nominated for two other Oscars

Mila Kunis has Friends With Benefits

Posted by LiveFor on May 6, 2010

Mila Kunis (Extract, The Book of Eli) will star opposite Justin Timberlake in Screen Gems’ comedy, Friends With Benefits, according to Variety.

Directed by Will Gluck, the film is romantic comedy about two friends who try to take their relationship to the next level.

This one is being readied for a July start but there are a couple of other projects with the same name. Paramount are hoping for a May start for its Ivan Reitman directed film that has been alternately called “Fuckbuddies” and “Friends With Benefits.” NBC is also working on a comedy pilot with the same title for its fall schedule.

Joaquin Phoenix was only pretending to fall apart

Posted by LiveFor on May 6, 2010

Remember how Joaquin Phoenix said he was quitting the acting game and becoming a hip-hop star? He grew a beard and acted weird on David Letterman and other things.

At the time it all seemed very odd and rumour had it that it was all in the name of art.

Turns out that was exactly the case and Casey Affleck has supposedly finished the mockumentary based around Phoenix’s crazy antics.

Deadline have the news that it was shown for the first time in a private lunchtime screening at WME headquarters last week for buyers — including Harvey Weinstein — who were sworn to secrecy.

They are going to keep the actual content of the mockumentary as secret as they can, but it will be interesting to see what it has all been about. Personally I can’t wait to see Phoenix back on the Letterman show once the film is released.

Wild Target – Bill Nighty, Emily Blunt, Rupert Grint in Brit Comedy Caper

Posted by LiveFor on April 29, 2010

A British comedy that look very funny with some excellent actors involved. I think Grint will definitely be the Harry Potter star who goes on to bigger and better things.

Bill Nighy is Victor Maynard, a middle-aged, solitary assassin, who lives to please his formidable mother, Louisa (Eileen Atkins), despite his own peerless reputation for lethal efficiency. His professional routine is interrupted when he finds himself drawn to one of his intended victims, Rose (Emily Blunt). He spares her life, unexpectedly acquiring a young apprentice in the process, Tony (Rupert Grint). Believing Victor to be a private detective, his two new companions tag along, while he attempts to thwart the murderous attentions of his unhappy client (Rupert Everett).
