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

Jonah Hex – Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on April 29, 2010

This trailer has its moments but seems to be a bit all over the place. Hex is a great character yet I’m not sure whether the film will do him justice. I could be wrong although I do get a whiff of Wild, Wild West about it. We shall have to wait and see.

Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyone…and anything. Having survived death, Jonah’s violent history is steeped in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the “other side.” His only human connection is with Leila (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah’s past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can’t refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah’s oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead. Based on the legendary graphic novel, “Jonah Hex” is an epic adventure thriller about one man’s personal quest for redemption against the vast canvas of the battle between good and evil.

Men in Black 3 – Will Smith is signed up and Tommy Lee Jones is coming with him?

Posted by LiveFor on April 21, 2010

Director Barry Sonnenfeld has apparently been chatting with Showbiz411 about Men in Black 3D. Will Smith has signed on, Tommy Lee Jones is in, and they are just waiting on a script.

I knew that this kept surfacing, but I am surprised Will Smith has signed on already.

Past rumours have also had Josh Brolin, Sacha Baron Cohen and Jermaine Clement being in talks for roles in the film.

Not sure if I want a Men in Black 3. I enjoyed the first one, but was really disappointed in the second. Minid you I am glad Tommy Lee Jones could be back.

Do you want a third one? What do you want to see in it?

Jonah Hex – A clear look at Josh Brolin’s scarred face

Posted by LiveFor on April 20, 2010

It has been an age since we saw anything of the Jonah Hex movie. Adapted from the comic book character this is the first proper look of Josh Brolin as the bounty hunter. I must say he looks a lot like the comic version which is very cool. No sign of Megan Fox though.

We will finally get a trailer for Jonah Hex that will premiere on the SyFy channel the night of April 29th. Then it will be attached to A Nightmare on Elm Street screenings.

What do you think of Brolin’s look?

The Coen’s True Grit to get Christmas release

Posted by LiveFor on January 20, 2010

Paramount Pictures has scheduled Joel and Ethan Coen’s remake of True Grit for a Christmas Day 2010 release.

Based on Charles Portis’ novel, the story follows a 14-year-old girl who, along with an aging U.S. marshal (Jeff Bridges) and another lawman (Matt Damon), tracks her father’s killer in hostile Indian territory. Josh Brolin also stars.

Still no word on who will be playing the main character of the girl, Mattie. Open casting was mentioned a while back, but still no word on how that is going.

The positioning sets the film squarely up for a high-profile awards run and the Christmas Day holiday box-office.

Really looking forward to seeing The Dude go cowboy in this one.

The Coens True Grit is casting the female lead

Posted by LiveFor on December 19, 2009

The Coen Brothers adaption of the novel, True Grit, already has Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin involved. Not a bad cast for a Western. However, they’ve now opened casting for the female lead over on truegritcasting.com.

Here’s the character description:

Fourteen year old Mattie is a simple, tough as nails, young woman in post-Civil War Arkansas. Her unusually steel nerves and straightforward manner are often surprising to those she meets. She possessed plenty of true grit and determination. Enough so that she insists on going with 2 marshals to hunt down the killer of her father. We are looking for a girl who’s tough, strong, and tells it like it is. Must be able to portray Caucasian.


To audition, you can attend an open call or tape yourself. If you apply or know anyone who does let me know.
