Pride and Prejudice and Zombies appeared bound for the screen five years ago. After a series of directorial changes, a search for a leading lady, and all manner of issues, though, the mashup appeared dead.
Not so, it seems, as production is set to begin this September with a new group of young actors tackling roles familiar from Jane Austen's 1813 novel. Also: zombies.
As set photos show our first look at Ben Affleck as billionaire Bruce Wayne in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, some new character details have emerged to illuminate Zack Snyder's take on the Dark Knight.
Here at IAR, we are very proud of the long list of brilliant character actors that we’ve been able to spotlight over the years. Actors that you’ve loved on television or film but might not know by name such as Titus Welliver (The Town), William Atherton (Ghostbusters), Leland Orser (Taken), Ron Eldard (Sleepers), Jeff Fahey (Silverado), and Wallace Shawn (The Princess Bride). We can now add the great Currie Graham to that illustrious list of supporting actors.
Graham has had recurring roles on several popular TV programs including House, The Mentalist, 24, Boston Legal, Desperate Housewives, and Arrow. But he is probably best known for playing Lt. Thomas Bale on Steven Bochco’s NYPD Blue. He would eventually go on to appear in Bochco’s next series Raising the Bar, and can be seen on the executive producer’s current TNT series Murder in the First. But the actor is also no stranger to the big screen having appeared in such films as Assault on Precinct 13, Total Recall, Hitchcock, and Pompeii. Now Graham can be seen in the new film Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, which opens in theaters and will be available on iTunes beginning August 13th.
Cabin Fever: Patient Zero is the third film in the horror franchise but the first prequel in the series. The film follows a group of friends enjoying a bachelor cruise in the Caribbean that stumble upon a research facility on a remote island when a deadly virus is unleashed. The group must find a way to survive before the flesh-eating virus consumes them all. Graham plays Dr. Edwards, who holds the key to stopping the outbreak. The movie is directed by Kaare Andrews, and also stars Sean Astin (The Goonies).
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Currie Graham about Cabin Fever: Patient Zero and Murder in the First. The accomplished actor discussed his new movie, not being familiar with the Cabin Fever franchise, making his first horror film, playing a villain, working with Sean Astin, director Kaare Andrews, his time on NYPD Blue, reuniting with Steven Bochco for Murder in the First, acting opposite James Cromwell (Spider-Man 3), and the performance that he is most proud of.
Have you seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet? Did you stay all the way through the end credits? If the answer to either of questions is "no" and you're also concerned about SPOILERS, then turn around and kick rocks post haste.
It's ladies' night at Sony Pictures.
Hot on the heels of the news that the studio is looking to get Paul Feig to direct a female-driven Ghostbusters 3 comes word that Sony's also cooking up a Spider-Man spinoff starring an as-yet unspecified female character.
It's been four years since Disney's Alice in Wonderland rode Avatar's 3D wave to earn $1 billion worldwide despite pretty much no one actually liking the movie.
With a summer 2016 release date and an all-star cast in place, the sequel, Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, is officially kicking off principal photography in the U.K. this week.
The first images from Tim Burton's upcoming Big Eyes have made their way online, showcasing awards season darlings Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz.
If Ghostbusters 3 is going to make the jump from hypothetical movie/Quixotic vision in Dan Aykroyd's head to actual movie, Sony is going to have to find someone to direct the thing.
What if that someone is Paul Feig?
And what if the next generation of supernatural eliminators in Feig-directed Ghostbusters sequel were, in fact, women?
We were all Groot this weekend.
Guardians of the Galaxy proved the potency of the Marvel Studios brand, launching a new franchise and setting the record for the biggest August opening in box office history.

Hype-fu is usually an offensive discipline, but the head honcho at Marvel Studios is demonstrating the defensive possibilities of the form.
Addressing the possibility of a female-led Marvel movie, Kevin Feige kept his hype-fu game tight, saying, "I hope we do it sooner rather than later."
