The next installment in the unkillable Terminator franchise has recruited a new pair of writers.
It was recently announced that there are plans in the works to make a sequel to the 2010 comedy Hot Tub Time Machine, which starred John Cusack (The Raven). While Cusack's involvement is unknown at this point, actors Rob Corddry (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World), Craig Robinson (NBC's The Office), and Clark Duke (Kick-Ass) are scheduled to reprise their roles in the new film.
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick just happened to be on the set of the Emmy Award-winning Adult Swim series Childrens Hospital the day after the announcement was made and had a chance to ask Rob Corddry about the proposed project. The comedian/actor discussed the upcoming sequel, the recent announcement, reading the script, when the film will most likely begin shooting, whether or not John Cusack will be involved, and how much he wishes he was actually the Grosse Point Blank actor.
When we last saw Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels at the end of Dumb & Dumber almost two decades ago, Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne were trudging along a highway, having missed their opportunity to become Hawaiian Tropic greaseboys.
We will discover their fate, though. According to co-director Peter Farrelly in an IAR exclusive, the sequel, tentatively titled Dumb & Dumber To, is definitely happening.
It seemed pretty clear that Paramount Pictures and co-financier Skydance Productions were hoping Jack Reacher would lead to a reliable new action franchise anchored by Tom Cruise as the title character, an unstoppable justice-dispensing-machine who has been the hero of no fewer than seventeen bestselling novels by Lee Child.
Unless Jack Reacher hits a certain monetary mark internationally, however, Jack Reacher will only be kicking asses in the one movie rather than in a series.
Anthony Mackie is a frequent MVP, the kind of actor who is good even when the movie around him isn't. That's solid news for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, since the 8 Mile, The Hurt Locker, and Gangster Squad actor is set to play Sam Wilson, also known as The Falcon, in next year's sequel.
Good news re: A Good Day to Die Hard.
John McClane is, as he himself puts it, "a fly in the ointment, the monkey in the wrench, the pain in the ass." The New York cop is hard-drinking oddity who knows his way around an obscenity and also knows how to viciously beat the piss out of bad guys. Basically, John McClane is a character who cannot be inhibited by an audience-friendly rating.
And in A Good Day to Die Hard, he won't be. since the sequel is apparently rated R.
For more than a decade now, Jurassic Park 4 has been one of those persistent sequels on which work never really seems to cease yet no movie actually coalesces around all that work. Apparently the work is paying off, though, as Universal Pictures is planning to release a third Jurassic Park sequel in the summer of 2014.
"Hey," you're asking, "Y'all wouldn't happen to have new images from two of 2013's most anticipated movies based on Marvel Comics properties?" Short answer: yes. Long answer: yes, we have one image apiece from Iron Man 3 and The Wolverine, the former featuring Tony's new armor and the latter showing off Hugh Jackman's torso, as well as his mutton chops.
In a move that suggests the hugely anticipated trailer will arrive sooner rather than later, Sony Pictures has released the first official image from Grown Ups 2.
Said image features Adam Sandler and Salma Hayek laughing at something offscreen, joined by fellow laughing people Chris Rock, Kevin James, Maria Bello, and David Spade.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is a movie star.
Actors disappear into their characters and the world of their films. Riding their charisma, movie stars dictate both and are, to a certain extent, themselves onscreen. The almost eight years Schwarzenegger spent as the improbable Governor of California meant that he was limited exclusively to brief cameo roles, but now that his gubernatorial tenure is over and he's kept his head low after a public scandal, Arnold Schwarzenegger is once again properly starring in action movies.
In The Last Stand, Schwarzenegger plays a small town sheriff who wrangles the town's eccentrics to stop a wanted drug lord from making it to the U.S./Mexico border. IAR's Jami Philbrick participated in the movie's press conference, and we'll have plenty more The Last Stand goodies coming your way closer to its January 18th release. Today, we're looking further into the future. While promoting his first cinematic vehicle since Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Schwarzenegger shed some light on his new Conan adventure, the Twins sequel Triplets, and even the possibility of teaming up with fellow muscle-mountain Dwayne Johnson.
