‘Kingsman’ Director Matthew Vaughn Making New Spy Movie With Samuel L. Jackson, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Sam Rockwell

Matthew Vaughn has spent the past seven years working in the spy genre directing his Kingsman films, and he seems to be extremely comfortable in that arena.

‘House of the Dragon’ Adds More Cast Members, Suggests There Will Be Regular Flashbacks

Throughout its 8 years on HBO, Game of Thrones mostly shied away from flashbacks as a storytelling device. Now, however, the franchise based on George R.R. Martin’s novels has a whole prequel series on the way, which could be considered one long flashback of sorts. House of the Dragon will take viewers further back in time in the world of Westeros — 300 years, to be exact. Yet a new casting report indicates that it could cover more than one time period, with actresses Milly Alcock and Emily Car...

Amazon’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ TV Series Somehow Adds More Names to a Cast That May or May Not Be Captives, Send Help

Hmm, where should we even start with this one? Let’s go with the new batch of actors just reported to be joining Amazon’s crown jewel Lord of the Rings series (though we should really stop referring to it by that name) for its first season. Clearly, this show won’t let a silly little thing like “filming” (it has been in production since early 2020, mind you) stop it from adding to its ever-expanding roster. The Cast According to The Hollywood Reporter, joining the cast are Charles Edwards ...

So why didn’t she get the part? The Desperado star admitted that she simply couldn’t handle the action and was too lazy to land the part. ...

There’s a new Pet Sematary movie on the way, and it certainly sounds like it’s going to be a prequel. The film was called a prequel when it was first announced. However, a report surfaced later stating that nothing had been decided yet, and that the “plot’s direction is still being figured out and a prequel is not guaranteed at this time.” Now, it looks as if we’re firmly back in “prequel” territory because it’s been revealed that Jackson White will play a young Jud Crandall, the nosy neighbor ...

A Fourth ‘Before’ Movie Was in the Works With Richard Linklater, But Julie Delpy Turned It Down

The films in Richard Linklater‘s Before romantic drama trilogy were released nine years apart, and the most recent entry, Before Midnight, came out in 2013.
