Golf Swing Lands On Kid's Face

Posted September 9, 2011 - By Joseph Baxter

Sure, his parents could have just told him not to stand too close while his sister was teeing off. But, what productivity could possibly come of that? Without pain, there is no sacrifice, and one day his golf game is going to pay for their Mansions in Maui after they're divorced.

Deadpool Movie: Ryan Reynolds Gives An Update

Fans who may be wondering what happened with the Deadpool solo movie project may be encouraged to know that it's still a go. -- Maybe.

Producer (and Queen of Superhero films at Fox,) Lauren Shuler Donner recently spoke of the project, which is still prospectively set with Tim Miller in the director's chair and Ryan Reynolds reprising his X-Men Origins: Wolverine role as the crimson-clad Merc with a Mouth.

While handling interviews to promote the September 9 release of X-Men: First Class to DVD/Blu-ray, Donner found herself fielding questions about the long-teased film project that would bring super-powered, disfigured mercenary, Wade Wilson back to the big screen.

While the project is still not a 100% certainty, there does seem to be enthusiasm among the higher-ups at Fox studio to get it made.

Well, we may have an idea what that viral video starring Back to the Future's Doc Brown was all about. It appears that Nike may actually release the Power Lace sneakers featured in Back to the Future II! Now that tech items from the Back to the Future film series are possibly being manufactured, can hoverboards be far behind?

The Wolverine To Get Rewrite

Wolverine 2: Screenplay Finished, Shooting In January

It appears that the beleaguered prequel, The Wolverine will be getting its script tweaked. With delays galore plaguing this production, scribe, Mark Bomback will be brought in to rewrite the script by Christopher McQuarrie.

Known for his writing on the upcoming Len Wiseman Total Recall reboot, Bryan Singer's Jack the Giant Killer, and Live Free or Die Hard, Bomback has likely been brought on board to make logistical changes to the McQuarrie script.

The film will be a rendition of the famous 1982 Wolverine comic book mini-series which found the adamantium-clawed hero in Japan, searching for his past, while battling the evil ninja clan, The Hand.

Now, with director, James Mangold looking to get shooting with star, Hugh Jackman in Spring 2012, hopefully, what Bomback turns in will maintain the same spirit as the often-complimented McQuarrie script, which at one time, had Darren Aronofsky ready to helm.

Josh Brolin Cast In Spike Lee's Oldboy Remake

The American remake of Park Chan-wook's Oldboy has finally met its protagonist. Josh Brolin has been confirmed to take the lead role of Oh Dae-Su--or we should say, Joe.

"[Joe] is a man who, on the day his daughter is born, is captured and imprisoned in a hotel room for over two decades (15 years in the original) with no understanding as to why. When he is suddenly released, he's told that he has just four days to determine the reason for his imprisonment and, if he cannot, his daughter will be killed."

The film will officially be named Old Boy and fans should expect to see production start in 2012. We've gotten used to the idea of having Spike Lee as the director of this remake, but how do you feel about this casting? I've enjoyed his past roles in films like True Grit, No Country For Old Men, and Milk, so I'm looking forward to seeing what Brolin can give us this time.

Wolverine 2: Screenplay Finished, Shooting In January

Long-in-the-making "prequel-sequel," The Wolverine may have hit yet another snag in its attempt to get rolling. Yes, it seems that the film will once more be delayed.

We had previously thought that the film was set to go for this Fall, but if the latest report from Deadline proves true, then star, Hugh Jackman won't get to shed his claws in the front of the camera until Spring of 2012.

Additionally, it appears that the original aim of the film to actually shoot the Japan-set prequel in Japan is beginning to look unfeasible due to weather conditions and they may have to ship the production up to Canada. Or, in the very least, shoot between countries.

Will any mutant healing factor be enough to fix this film?

The Hobbit: Peter Jackson Discusses Bilbo Baggins

The Hobbit's Martin Freeman, who will play the perpetually-perturbed protagonist, Bilbo Baggins in the two-part epic, has apparently worked extremely well for the film according to director, Peter Jackson.

With the production currently on an extended hiatus as Freeman honors commitments with the BBC series, Sherlock, Jackson utilized that free time to make a surprise appearance at Comic Con last month. In an interview taken there with The LA Times, the director discusses his feelings on the performance of his film's star and how he was able to effectively carry that Hobbit sensibility with his performance.

As Jackson simply puts it, Freeman "is our Bilbo."
