Entertainment One (eOne) send word that they’ve firmed up a co-development pact with Avi Lerner (Rambo,The Expendables) and Nu Image to develop and produce a television series based on ‘Rambo.’ Under their exclusive option arrangement, the partners will collectively develop the series and shop it to broadcasters in the US and internationally. The parties are currently in negotiations with Sylvester Stallone to be involved with the project on a creative level as well as potentially reprise his iconic role as the original Rambo.
‘Rambo’ is a cult classic series of movies and an epic feature film character starring Sylvester Stallone as John Rambo. Based on the David Morell novel “First Blood,” the film is about a troubled Vietnam War veteran and former Green Beret who is skilled in many aspects of survival, weaponry, hand to hand combat and guerrilla warfare. The series consists of the films ‘First Blood,’ ‘Rambo: First Blood Part II,’ ‘Rambo III’ and ‘Rambo.’
First Looks At Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren & Randy Couture On The Set Of ‘The Expendables 3′
With filming now underway in Bulgaria on ‘The Expendables 3, the third installment of ‘The Expendables’ action-thriller franchise, CS have got their mitts on this new batch of images from the set of the film. ’The Expendables 3′ will feature Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to their roles in the first two films with Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson and Harrison Ford joining the all-star cast along with Kellan Lutz, MMA star Ronda Rousey, welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz and Glen Powell.
In ‘The Expendables 3,’ Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.
EW are reporting that Ziyi Zhang is in talks to reprise her role as Jen Yu in the sequel to ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’, which will begin shooting in March 2014. A source close to the film reportedly says Zhang’s part would be shot as flashbacks to explain what happened to her character. As previously announced by The Weinstein Company, Michelle Yeoh will return as Yu Shu Lien and Donnie Yen will star as Silent Wolf in the sequel, titled ‘Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon — The Green Destiny.’ Yuen Wo Ping will direct; Ang Lee directed the original, which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2000. John Fusco is writing the screenplay, based on ‘Iron Knight, Silver Vase’ by Wang Du Lu, book 5 in the ‘Crane-Iron Pentalogy’ series on which the original film is based. Ping and Zhang also recently teamed up for Wong Kar-wai’s ‘The Grandmaster.’
Wo Ping is a renowned martial arts director and chroreographer, having directed more than two dozen Chinese-language films and advised or choreographed more than a dozen American actions movies including ‘The Matrix’ trilogy, the ‘Kill Bill’ films and the first ‘Crouching Tiger.’ ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ became a surprise international success, grossing $213.5 million. It grossed $128 million in the US becoming the highest grossing foreign language film in American history and has won over 40 awards including the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. The film was also nominated for six other Academy Awards including Best Picture.
Earlier this month it was reported that Steven Spielberg had dropped out of directing ‘American Sniper,’ the biopic of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. In May, DreamWorks joined Warner Bros in a co-production when Spielberg said that he would direct the script by Jason Hall. Both Spielberg and DreamWorks have parted ways with the project, leaving Warner Bros free to seek another director. Today Twitch has learned that Clint Eastwood has reportedly gotten the nod to take over the directing assignment from Warners. Bradley Cooper, who has been developing the project as a producer, is still likely play the lead role. There’s currently no word on when the film will begin shooting.
The book, whose complete title is ‘American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History,’ reveals how Texas native Chris Kyle came to record the highest number of sniper kills for an American. The book has been praised for its frankness in telling a first-person account of a warrior who shoots from far and close distances. Kyle tragically was killed at a shooting range by a fellow vet in February. The book spent 18 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list and 13 weeks at No. 1. Bradley Cooper’s production company, 22nd & Indiana Pictures, optioned the rights to the book a year ago. The official synopsis for the book is as follows.
First Poster For Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Zero Theorem’ – Starring Christoph Waltz, Tilda Swinton, Matt Damon & More
Filmtv.it has unveiled this first international poster for Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Zero Theorem.’ Starring Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Thierry, Matt Damon, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw, Peter Stormare, Lucas Hedges and David Thewlis, ‘The Zero Theorem’ is set for 2014. You can always count me in for a new Terry Gilliam flick. The synopsis for ‘The Zero Theorem’ can be read below.
The Zero Theorem is set in a world that seems right in Gilliam’s wheelhouse. Living in an Orwellian corporate world where “mancams” serve as the eyes of a shadowy figure known only as Management, Leth (Waltz) works on a solution to the strange theorem while living as a virtual cloistered monk in his home—the shattered interior of a fire-damaged chapel. His isolation and work are interrupted now and then by surprise visits from Bainsley, a flamboyantly lusty love interest who tempts him with “tantric biotelemetric interfacing” (virtual sex) and Bob. Latter is the rebellious whiz-kid teenage son of Management who, with a combination of insult-comedy and an evolving true friendship, spurs on Qohen’s efforts at solving the theorem. But these visits turn out to be intentional diversions orchestrated by Management to keep control of Qohen’s progress. Bob creates a virtual reality “inner-space” suit that will carry Qohen on an inward voyage, a close encounter with the hidden dimensions and truth of his own soul, wherein lie the answers both he and Management are seeking. The suit and supporting computer technology will perform an inventory of Qohen’s soul, either proving or disproving the Zero Theorem.
Sundance Selects send word that they will release Abdellatif Kechiche’s 2013 Cannes Film Festival Palme D’Or Winner ‘Blue is the Warmest Color’ with the MPAA rating of NC-17 in the United States, as opposed to trimming the film or releasing the film Unrated. With a screenplay by Kechiche and Ghalya Lacroix, and starring Lea Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos, the film is being rated NC-17 for “explicit sexual content.” Sundance Selects will release the film in theaters beginning October 25th, on the heels of screening as part of the 2013 New York Film Festival. The film opens in Franco on October 9th and in the UK on November 15th.
Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films, said: “This is a landmark film with two of the best female performances we have ever see on screen. The film is first and foremost a film about love, coming of age and passion. We refuse to compromise Kechiche’s vision by trimming the film for an R rating, and we have every confidence that ‘Blue is the Warmest Color’ will play in theaters around the country regardless. An NC-17 rating no longer holds the stigma it once did, and we look forward to bringing this unforgettable film to audiences nationwide. We believe this film will leave a lasting imprint as the ‘Last Tango in Paris’ for a whole new generation.”
