Denzel - Well hello Sarah Connor! According to the Hollywood Reporter, Linda Hamilton is set to reprise her iconic onscreen role in a new Terminator film. Creator James Cameron is also returning to the franchise and revealed the news, stating “There are 50-year-old, 60-year-old guys out there killing bad guys, but there isn’t an example of that for women.” Tim Miller will direct the new film, based on a story crafted by Cameron, and Arnold Schwarzenegger will also return. According to reports, this installment is treating the movie as a direct sequel to the Cameron-helmed Terminator tale, Judgment Day.

- Could we see another Beverly Hills Cop movie? It’s been years since the panned Beverly Hills Cop 3, but during a chat with Holland talk show The World Turns, directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah mentioned that they had auditioned for Eddie Murphy after receiving support from Jerry Bruckheimer. The directors plan is to shoot a film primarily in Detroit with the transplanted Axel Foley returning home and clashing with a hardened cop while tracking down a criminal, with Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum being mentioned as possibilities for the “big bad” of the film. But nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

Tom Hanks has signed on to star in a remake of A Man Called Ove. According to Deadline, Hanks will play a grumpy widower whose state gets worse when he’s dumped as the chairman of his neighborhood association. Pushed into retirement, Ove decides to end his life, but each of his attempts at suicide end up being interrupted by neighbors in need, leading Ove into situations where he’s forced to open up to others and examine his own life again. The original Swedish comedy became the highest grossing foreign language film of 2016.

Matt Damon’s next film project will be the film Charlatan. Variety reports that the actor will star as John R. Brinkley, an early 20th century physician who conned his patients into thinking he’d found the cure for impotence.

- Fresh off her Emmy win for The Handmaid’s Tale, Elisabeth Moss‘ schedule is filling up. She’s signed on for the indie feature Call Jane from My Week With Marilyn director Simon Curtis and also booked Mad to Be Normal opposite David Tennant and directed by Robert Mullan. Variety reports that Call Jane is based on the true story of the ’60s movement called the Jane Collective who secretly provided safe abortions for women prior to the Roe vs. Wade decision. Moss will play the titular character. Meanwhile, Deadline reports that Mad to Be Normal follows the story of ’60s celebrity psychologist R.D. Laing (Tennant), whose experimental testing changed the views on mental health in the ’60s.

- Dame Judy Dench is in talks to join Disney’s Artemis Fowl. Variety reports that Kenneth Branagh will direct the film, which is being written by Irish playwright Conor McPherson.

All I See

One of cinema’s most versatile filmmakers is Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace), as seamless genre hopping is one of his trademarks. Halle Berry (she won an Oscar for Monster’s Ball), Will Ferrell (Stranger Than Fiction), and Johnny Depp (Finding Neverland) have delivered some of their finest work under his watch, and now Blake Lively may just follow suit with All I See Is You.

The story centers on Gina (Blake Lively) a woman whose blindness is seemingly cured after a corneal transplant. Regaining her sight gradually has a negative impact on her relationship with her husband James (Jason Clarke), as he was more than happy to be Gina’s eyes into the world (the couple live in Bangkok, Thailand). This is Forster’s first directing effort since 2013’s zombie epic World War Z, and it’s great to see him return to more smaller scale, intimate driven fare. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!

All I See Is You opens nationwide October 27.

Unfriend

In Friend Request, Alycia Debnam-Carey plays Laura, a popular college student who ends up regretting letting a colleague named Marina (Liesel Ahlers) become a Facebook friend. Marina is a social outcast who stalks Laura both in real life and online. After Laura unfriends Marina, the woman commits suicide, and her death leads to repercussions for Laura and her fellow Facebook friends.

“You have no control over technology in many ways,” said Degnam-Carey. “You don’t know the implications it has in years to come. So I thought that was a really smart idea to involve so many of those qualities with these fantasy elements of the script which I also thought was fantastic.”

Friend Request, co-starring The Royals actor William Moseley, is now playing nationwide.

NUP_179501_0132.JPGMandy Moore first entered the public eye in 1999, when her song Candy became a Top 40 hit. Since then, she’s diversified her career portfolio — not only has she had hit singles and toured the world as a music artist, but she’s become quite an accomplished actress as well. Nothing she’s done, however, has resonated with audiences the way This Is Us has. The NBC drama has been a critical hit and a cultural phenomenon, so it’s not surprising that Moore told us it’s the best job she’s ever had. (Click on the media bar below to hear Mandy Moore)

The second season of This Is Us premieres next Tuesday night at 9/8c on NBC.

The list of characters Harrison Ford has played in the last decade reads suspiciously like the list of characters he played in the first decade of his career. In addition to the Star Wars and Indiana Jones revivals featuring his iconic characters Han Solo and Indiana Jones, he’ll soon be seen once again as Rick Deckard in Blade Runner: 2049. Obviously, Ford doesn’t have a problem with revisiting old characters, but he told us he wouldn’t have done it if the writers and producers hadn’t found a way to make the old character’s new story fresh and compelling. (Click on the media bar below to hear Harrison Ford)

Ford stars with Ryan Gosling in Blade Runner: 2049, which opens in theaters on October 6.

147635_8907Former NFL All-Pro wide receiver Terrell Owens is no stranger to performing in front of a large audience. He spent 14 seasons playing in packed stadiums and was watched by more than 50 million people when he played in Super Bowl XXXIX. So dancing in front of a live studio audience should be a breeze, right? He thinks so, but his Dancing With The Stars partner, Cheryl Burke, reminds him that things are a little different on the show — especially when it comes to the wardrobe! (Click on the media bar below to hear Terrell Owens & Cheryl Burke)

wonderstruck1Delving into the past is part of director Todd Haynes’ (Carol, Velvet Goldmine, I’m Not There) storytelling style, and he follows suit with his latest film Wonderstruck.

Penned by Brian Selznick (from his own bestselling novel), Wonderstruck is set in two time periods (1927 and 1977). After his mother’s (Michelle Williams) passing, Ben (Oakes Fegley) goes on a quest to find a father he has never known. Fifty years earlier, a child named Rose (Millicent Simmonds) goes searching for an actress (Julianne Moore) she admires.

It’s great to see Haynes and Moore reunite after their successful collaborations on Safe and Far From Heaven. The Wonderstruck trailer has a similar wistful tone to Haynes’ Citizen Kane-ish homage Velvet Goldmine, and the film has already received great word of mouth. Whether or not David Bowie approved of Velvet Goldmine, it’s a wonderful touch to have the seminal track “Space Oddity” in the trailer.

Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Wonderstruck hits theaters October 20th via Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions.

NUP_178465_0423.JPG

Though she did appear in pivotal episodes on last season’s Chicago P.D., Tracy Spiridakos is still a relative newbie to the show. With Det. Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) leaving her job and securing a deal to work with the FBI (a trade-off to keep her troublesome mother out of jail), no-nonsense cop Det. Hailey Upton (Spiridakos) is up for the challenge.

The One Chicago family will often have crossover episodes and characters weave in and out of each other’s respective series, and this dynamic has led to a tight knight community. “The Dick Wolf family has been a very warm one,” said Spiridakos. “We walk past all the other trailers for Chicago Fire and Chicago Med and the cast and everybody else will come out and I’m the new one so they’ll (say) ‘Hey nice to meet you’ and introduce themselves. All around - just genuinely all of them are wonderful. Everyone is so sweet and my experience has been great.”

Click on the media bar to hear Spiradakos explain how she relates to the “thrill” aspect Det. Hailey Upton:



Season five of Chicago P.D., which also features the return of Jon Seda as Det. Antonio Dawson, returns Wednesday September 27 on NBC (10/9c).

BATTLE OF THE SEXES

Steve Carell knows a thing or two about working on non-fiction narratives (The Big Short, Foxcatcher) and with Battle of the Sexes he plays showman and tennis star Bobby Riggs. Emma Stone co-stars as his opponent Billie Jean King, and their match would be one of tennis’ most popular matches.

“There’s that public persona and then there’s this guy that no one really knew,” said Carell. “I remember watching, which I started doing research, there’s this great 60 Minutes interview with him and he’s doing his thing. He’s playing his character. It’s this spiel. But then the conversation came around to his wife and talking about how they recently separated . . . even within all of that bravado and that crazy over the top nature of his, you can see the pain he was suffering through. To me, that was sort of the root that I was going for.”

Along with the challenge of delving into the interior life of Riggs, Carell actually let his hair grow for Battle of the Sexes. Click on the media bar below to hear a funny Carell story about his hair raising experience on Battle of the Sexes:


Battle of the Sexes opens nationwide September 29.
