Al Pacino as Jack Kevorkian

Posted by LiveFor on March 31, 2010

Al Pacino and Susan Sarandon star in HBO’s new original movie, You Don’t Know Jack.

Pacino plays the Michigan doctor who became infamous for assisting the suicides of countless terminally ill patients. He took part in over 130 suicides and after willingly airing one his “procedures” on an episode of “60 minutes” he was arrested and convicted of second-degree murder. He spent 8 years in prison before being released on parole in 2007.

Pacino just looks scary in this one.

It premieres Saturday, April 24 only on HBO.

Peacock – Trailer for Cillian Murphy cross dressing weirdness

Posted by LiveFor on March 18, 2010

The movie follows John Skillpa, a quiet bank clerk living in tiny Peacock, Nebraska, who lives his life in solitude. Then, in a moment, everything changes. A train caboose runs off its tracks and crashes into his backyard, destroying more than the weathered planks of his wood fence. When neighbors descend on the scene, they discover Skillpa’s other personality, Emma, for the first time and mistakenly believe her to be his wife. This launches him into the glare of the spotlight and eventually shatters the delicate balance of his sanity.

Looks very intriguing and Murphy is on his a-game by the looks of it.

Starring Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page and Susan Sarandon.

Avatar – Olivia Munn (she’s Iron Maiden in Iron Man 2) and Eva Amurri as Na’Vi

Posted by LiveFor on December 17, 2009

Being British I am not too sure who exactly Olivia Munn is. I think she does a TV show or something – American readers please feel free to enlighten me in the comments.

However, I knew she was having a small role in the new Iron Man movie. Checking imdb she is down as playing Melina Vostokoff aka Iron Maiden. Apparantly she was an enemy of Black Widow (played by Scarlett Johansson in the film) so looks as if we may get to see a Munn Johansson smack down….and I’m back in the room.

Back to the post at hand, here are a few pics FilmDrunk dug up of Munn and Eva Amurri made up as Na’Vi from Avatar. It is apparantly to promote “Olivia Munn-der Years” special on 28th December on G4.

Eva Amurri is the daughter of the Susan Sarandon and I can definitely see that in the photo below.

Tony Scott talks about The Hunger sequel, Alien and Hunter S Thompson

Posted by LiveFor on June 12, 2009 spoke to The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 director Tony Scott about his upcoming projects, one of which is a sequel to his 1983 vampire horror movie, The Hunger, which starred Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie and Susan Sarandon. That’s the film that had the saucy scene when Deneuve seduces Sarandon..yeah, you remember it now.

Scott remained mum about whether or not any of the original cast would make it into the sequel–many of them are vampires after all–and how they’d accomplish that, but he did give a few tidbits: “I’m not going to tell you how we’re doing it, but I’m controlling it and it’s gone to the next level. It’s not a reinvention or reinterpretation, it starts in New York and it ends up in Sao Paulo, so it’s a very different movie, but it springboards off the original. We’re writing it right now and we’ve got a great writer, Erin Wilson.”

“My dance card is so full, I’m so lucky,” he said before listing off some of the projects that are at the front of his mind. “I’ve got ‘The Warriors,’ I’ve got ‘Hell’s Angels’ – I’ve owned the Hunter Thompson book for 12 years and Steve Gaghan is writing the script right now. I own all these great titles. Another one called ‘Lucky Strike’ about guys who repro aircraft. ‘Potsdamer Platz,’ which is by the guys who wrote ‘Sexy Beast.’ Now with all these movies that are ready to go. They’re scripted, they’re budgeted, and now I’ve gotta make them before I die. I’m getting old.”

He was also asked about the recent rumor that director Carl Rinsch, who Scott said was attached to direct the Alien prequel, was not who 20th Century Fox wanted. The studio reportedly want his brother, Ridley, to direct instead.”I’m going to call a time out on that one,” he said, though he still seemed optimistic things would work out. “I don’t want to get caught in the middle. We’re in process on that, but I don’t have enough information to bring it to this table, but we’re going to make it.”

At this point, it seems like Unstoppable may be next for Scott, although he was tentative listing that as his 5th movie with Denzel Washington as his lead despite Washington having been attached for some time. The plot involves a runaway train containing toxic chemicals being chased by an engineer and a conductor. Chris Pine (Star Trek) is also rumoured to star in it.

In addition to Norton, Tim Blake Nelson will play a best friend, Susan Sarandon will play the eccentric mother of the two brothers, Keri Russell will play a love interest, and Richard Dreyfuss will play the local drug lord.
