The masked superhero boom is in its twelfth year, and its actually surprising that it has taken this long for a studio to really get cracking on a gritty reboot for Zorro.
Fox's long in-development Fantastic Four reboot finally kicks off production this month.
Just a few weeks ago and a not a moment too soon, the studio finally locked down a a quartet to star as Marvel's First Family, casting Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael. B Jordan, and Jamie Bell.
Now that his involvement is officially official, Jordan, the actor longest associated with the project, is commenting on his role Johnny Storm aka the Human Torch.
Clobberin' time is finally nigh.
20th Century Fox has finally settled on a quartet of young actors to star as Marvel's first family in the Fantastic Four reboot.
Currently in final negotiations to star in next summer's superhero movie are Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell.
The Terminator reboot has cast the last of its three familiar leads, giving Jai Courtney the supreme honor of playing John Connor's time-traveling pop, Kyle Reese.
Reboots aren't just for the Batmen and Spider-Men of the world.
Reboots are also for video game properties that didn't quite nail the landing in transitioning from the controller to the cinema screen.
Agent 47 is an example, as the new film attempts to capture the cold-blooded coolness of the bald, barcode-sporting killing machine previously played by Timothy Olyphant in 2007's Hitman.
After a hiccup or two, Warner Bros. has officially started moving on a big-budget Tarzan movie, announcing a release date and confirming the players appearing in the next film from David Yates.
The studio has scheduled this new Tarzan for July 1, 2016.
With production less than two months away, the Fantastic Four reboot is screen-testing actors to fill out the three members of the quartet that remain uncast.
A few new actors have emerged as candidates to play Sue Storm and Ben Grimm. There's also word that Marvel's First Family will square off against their most famous nemesis all over again, but Dr. Doom might just be a lady this time.
Scheduled for release on June 19th, 2015 is the upcoming reboot The Fantastic Four, which is based on the beloved Marvel Comics book. The film will be directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle), and is based on a screenplay by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past). The movie is still casting but rumored for the leading roles are either Miles Teller (That Awkward Moment), Kit Harington (Silent Hill: Revelation) or Richard Madden (TV's Game of Thrones) as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantatsic, Saoirse Ronan (How I Live Now), Kate Mara (TV's House of Cards), Emmy Rossum (Beautiful Creatures), or Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman, Christian Cook (Romeo & Juliet) as Ben Grimm/The Thing, and Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) as Johnny Storm/Human Torch.
Also in development is the seventh film in the Rocky series entitled Creed. The movie will be written and directed by Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station), and star Michael B. Jordan as Apollo Creed's grandson, and Sylvester Stallone reprising his role as Rock Balboa.
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to speak with Michael B. Jordan at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival about his possible involvement in The Fantastic Four and Creed. The acclaimed actor would neither confirm or deny that he will play the Human Torch in The Fantastic Four but said that "one way or another we'll find out soon." He also talked about his recent appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman and the talk show host's attempt at getting the actor to talk about The Fantastic Four, as well as Creed, his excitement to re-team with Ryan Coogler and work with Sylvester Stallone, not having a chance to read the script yet, and if Apollo Creed's son will appear in the movie.
Add another bad guy to the heap of comic book nemeses appearing in this summer's The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
The first clip from next month's RoboCop remake is now available to view.
If you're still bummed out by the idea of remaking RoboCop, then this excerpt isn't likely to change your mind. If, however, all you want out of a RoboCop movie is some slick action and visual effects, then this bit of gunplay ought to get the job done.
