F.Gary Gray’s ‘N.W.A’ Biopic Gets Initial Cast (Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E Roles)

F.Gary Gray’s ‘N.W.A’ Biopic Gets Initial Cast (Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E Roles)

This would be a film I would be interested in. An NWA biopic (Straight Outta Compton) that has been rumored to be in the works for half a decade, following the success of Notorious, 8 Mile and the upcoming 2Pac biopic, looks closer to becoming a reality. The stars of Niggaz With Attitude, the 80′s and 90′s iconic gangsta rap group, are Dr. Dre (now of Beats music fame-no, not the over decade long rumored Detox album), Eazy-E (the fallen, diminutive lead MC, who passed of aids in 1994 (I believe off the top of my head-may have been ’95 though I remember the day well), and Ice Cube (the man who would be the greatest rapper ever if he had died after AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted. True shit.). Alas Cube lives on in family-friendly garbage movies, but I digress.

The stars…ahem…cast in the roles for the iconic men? Ice Cube’s son (as Cube), Jason Mitchell (Eazy) and Marcus Callender (Dre). Yeah, you never heard of these dudes either. Shocking. Do the research on them (you can see pics here), because info is clearly aplenty. Hope it works out, since these are all unknowns and we know what Notorious did to launch the career of MC Gravy cast as Biggie. Nothing. Out.

Movie News: George Clooney, Josh Brolin Lead Coen Bros’ Next Film ‘Hail Caesar’

Movie News: George Clooney, Josh Brolin Lead Coen Bros’ Next Film ‘Hail Caesar’

Movie News: George Clooney, Josh Brolin Lead Coen Bros’ Next Film ‘Hail Caesar’

Hail Caesar, which will be the next film released by the Coen Brothers has found a distributor with Universal. The upcoming film stars Clooney and Brolin, who are both Coen Bros’ movie veterans, with each having at least two other film roles under the duo to their name. Now, the Inside Llewyn Davis writing-directing duo brings us this tale (via Deadline):

…it’s about a fixer in Hollywood circa 1950s who works for the studios to protect the stars of the day. Entitled Hail Caesarthe comical yarn centers on a man named Eddie Mannix who sounds a lot like the Fred Otash of his day — the famed 1950s private investigator who worked for Confidential magazine and was the muckraker of the time using wiretaps to spy on movie stars and gather dirt. Otash was a former lifeguard who became a cop, lost his job as a cop and became a private eye who wiretapped. The project is being put together now. It’s not clear if the Eddie Mannix in the script is based on the man of the same who was a MGM VP, for those of you wondering. The real Mannix was VP and general manager under Louis B. Mayer and Dore Schary. It was Mannix’s wife who actor George Reeves had the affair with. Reeves was later found with a gunshot wound to the head and it was ruled a suicide by the L.A. County coroner’s office but questions have always persisted about the death.

The Coens movies always pique an interest, even if they don’t always pan out. Add two well-liked, quality actors at the forefront and this one bears keeping an eye out for. Thoughts?

New ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Movie Title and Logo Revealed

New ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Movie Title and Logo Revealed

New ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Movie Title and Logo Revealed

The upcoming Batman vs. Superman film and subsequent planned Justice League movies are getting a lot of hype on the Internet these days and I suppose rightfully so, considering the massive success of The Avengers and Marvel Universe’s “equivalent” popcorn entertainment movies. Recently, director Zack Snyder dropped the first Batman and batmobile image, with Ben Affleck in full Dark Knight wardrobe and a redesigned ride (that looks a little different from Christopher Nolan’s version at first glance). Now, we get the official title of the new movie: Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and the official logo which blends both the superheroes logos into one (when you factor in the reboot of Superman with Henry Cavill). Let the hype machine begin and tell us what you think of the new logo and title. Intrigued?

Movie Pictures: Ben Affleck & Batmobile from ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Movie

Movie Pictures: Ben Affleck & Batmobile from ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Movie

Here is the first picture from the upcoming Zack Snyder directed film Batman Vs. Superman. The image shows Ben Affleck as the new Batman, completely clad in his new Batsuit, standing alongside the new Batmobile. The images are all monochromatic black essentially, so while we can’t tell a ton of differences between the new getups versus what was used in Christopher Nolan’s Christian Bale-led The Dark Knight series, there are some subtle differences to be sure. The batmobile looks less like a tank and more like a mobile, a little sleeker and trimmed down it appears. The batsuit has smaller subdued ears and a larger, taller batman logo on the chest. Any other things you can spot? Please share.

Movie Rumors: New 7,8,9 ‘Star Wars’ Movies Set To Be Cast

Movie Rumors: New 7,8,9 ‘Star Wars’ Movies Set To Be Cast

Movie Rumors: New 7,8,9 ‘Star Wars’ Movies Set To Be Cast

The biggest movie news of the day has been pushed around for a while and is close to be coming to light from what intel is being gathered. JJ Abrams, helmer of the new Star Wars trilogy (new Star Wars films 7,8,9), is supposedly having a table read in London with members of the would be cast. The hottest name to be attached in a major role to this project is Oscar Isaac of Inside Llewyn Davis, Sucker Punch & Drive fame. Oscar first turned heads for me in Sucker Punch, seamlessly blended into his role in Drive and won accolades in the little seen Coen film Davis. Now, he appears on track for the big time. Deadline has more:

Oscar Isaac is in line for a major role, as is Adam Driver and Attack the Block’sJohn Boyega, both of whom have been rumored. There is also a young girl, and that might be Maisie Richardson-Sellers, an Oxford-trained actress whose casting has been rumored in recent weeks. The new cast members will join returning Star Wars alums Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill. The big surprise, I’m told, is that Ford has a gigantic role in the first of the next three films.

This one could fill out and come to light formally in a hurry, and once all is set, we’ll let you know. Chime in on early thoughts should you have them.
