Weekend Box Office: Insurgent Commands Top Spot, Gunman Misfires
The Divergent Series returned to theaters this weekend with the second of four movies in the film franchise. One year after Divergent opened at number one with $54 million, its sequel did exactly the same thing.

This Rotten Week: Predicting The Gunman and Insurgent Reviews
Another light week for movies with two pretty rough flicks hitting the screen. These are the post Oscar, pre-Spring doldrums that leave a great deal to be desired. This week will do little do shake the dust off. We’ve got Penn going hitman and Woodley getting Divergent.

Sean Penn Actioner The Gunman Gets A Release Date
As for the movie itself, it certainly seems like a pleasurable Euro-actioner, even if it's also Sean Penn lifting some weights and going out to get him a Taken. Elba, Bardem and Winstone is sort of an unbeatable supporting cast, however, and it wasn't long ago when Taken made Morel the most in-demand name in Hollywood action.

Sean Penn Is Reborn As An Action Hero In First Look At The Gunman
Sean Penn has taken on many kinds of roles over the course of his career, from the stoner surfer dude Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times At Ridgemont High to that time he went full retard to star in I Am Sam, but now he's embarking on a type of part we never imagined him in: action hero.

Ray Winstone Will Mentor Sean Penn In The Gunman
Based on the novel "Prone Gunman" by Jean-Patrick Manchette, the story centers on an international operative (Penn) who is turned on by his handlers and forced to go on the run through various locales in Europe. The site says that Winstone will be playing Penn's mentor at the organization that betrays the lead character, which is strange casting when you consider that the former is only three years older than the latter.

Idris Elba May Join Sean Penn And Javier Bardem In The Gunman
When it was first announced that Sean Penn would be starring in a new action movie from the director of Taken called Prone Gunman, it sounded like a fairly funny idea. Recent developments, however, have changed our outlook on the project entirely. Last week we learned that Oscar-winner Javier Bardem had signed on for a role in the movie, which also underwent a title change (it's now called The Gunman).

Javier Bardem Joins Sean Penn In The Gunman, Signs On For J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year
Javier Bardem is a powerhouse actor. He has screen presence like few others do, and is a benefit to any project that he takes on. So what I'm trying to say is that both upcoming projects The Gunman and A Most Violent Year just got an upgrade. The Oscar-winning star for No Country For Old Men has landed key roles in both films, which are being directed by Pierre Morel and J.C. Chandor, respectively.

Taken Director Pierre Morel May Turn Sean Penn Into An Action Star
Liam Neeson was 56 years old when he starred in Pierre Morel's Taken and suddenly discovered a second career for himself as an action star. Now it seems that Sean Penn is banking on Morel doing the same thing for him with the upcoming Prone Gunman.

Sean Penn Could Become An Action Star In Prone Gunman
It's strange to think of the actor that Sean Penn became after breaking out playing Jeff Spicoli in Amy Heckerling's 1982 classic Fast Times at Ridgemont High, but it's even weirder to think about where he may be going next: to become an action star. The Oscar winning star is now in talks to take the lead in Prone Gunman, a new movie being developed by Joel Silver's Silver Pictures.
