How a California farmer fought back when an oil company polluted his land told in new film

Edward James Olmos wasn’t looking for a job when he stopped by a friend’s film company one day, but when he was offered a screenplay the actor, out of politeness, agreed to look it over. “I didn’t want to be, ‘Hey, man, send it to my agent; don’t do this to me here,’” Olmos says. “I didn’t want to pull one of those. So I read it. And I was very moved by the concept of the piece. It was very unusual, very different.” Olmos called Robert McEveety, the writer-producer of “The Devil Has a Name,” tol...

‘Firestarter’ Remake From Blumhouse Will Star Zac Efron

Blumhouse’s new take on Stephen King‘s Firestarter has announced its first cast member: Zac Efron.

Zac Efron wants in on some of this Stephen King adaptation action, and so he’s ...

5 Hiker-Friendly Movies for Outdoor Lovers

I tried upping my street cred (okay, hiking cred) recently while having pints with a group of fellow hikers. Emboldened by a pint (or two) of IPA, I claimed out aloud: “You know, you could say that I’ve hiked with Robert Redford and Martin Sheen.” The deafening silence was quickly followed by an outburst of derisive laughter that basically suggested: “Dream on, dude!” While I haven’t actually hiked with either of these stars—I have shared the same hiking trails, albeit at different times.
