While his House of Cards TV wife Robin Wright is headed for real-world drama around Mount Everest, Kevin Spacey is also going into the past for his next role. Sierra/Affinity has announced they will be producing and financing the feature Captain of the Gate, a biopic centered on former British Prime Minister and all-around iconic figure Winston Churchill, and Spacey will don the signature Homburg hat for the role.
Spacey is fantastic in House of Cards. I can understand why he might want to use the Netflix original series to showcase his talents, but there are countless other projects I’d use to show off his refined skills. What would you select for a Spacey highlight reel?
While J.C. Chandor’s script certainly resonated with Zachary Quinto and his team at Before the Door when they first took it on and still when they shot the film about a year and a half ago, it was a bit up in the air in terms of whether or not Margin Call would still be relevant when it finally hit theaters. Well, the time has come and courtesy of Occupy Wall Street, not only was Quinto’s first instinct justified, but now he’s got one of the timeliest films possible.
Based on a true story, Margin Call follows a crucial day in the life of an investment bank during the start of the financial crisis back in 2008. That alone sounds interesting, but it’s the cast, which consists of a number of actors who have, quite literally, given me goosebumps in previous performances, that really sell this film. Fortunately, most of the notable names are featured on the poster.
We first heard about Father of Invention over two years ago when Kevin Spacey attached himself to the piece as a star and producer. Maybe the slowest production cycle ever, Father finally is getting around to being released and it looks like it might actually be pretty funny
Ask potheads which movie character they’d most like to get high with and at least half the time you’ll hear Cheech and Chong or Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski. On the one hand, it makes sense given they’ve been long exalted as great advocates for the weed cause, but on the other hand, it makes no goddamn sense whatsoever.
At Cinema Con last week Warner Bros. debuted the first trailer for Horrible Bosses, their summer comedy that isn't The Hangover Part II and may turn out to be even funnier; Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day star as three doofuses who scheme together to kill their awful employers
Oh what could have been. In a meet and greet preceding a recent screening of The Usual Suspects, the always brilliant Kevin Spacey dished at length on everything from beating Rafael Nadal at ping pong to roles he narrowly missed out on. One of them, however, is of particular interest.
This clip shows off Spacey's Jack and his partner in crime Michael Scanlon putting around a quiet tarmac and shouting quotes from Jerry Maguire. It doesn’t give you much of a look into the greed
Unless you are completely devoid of a funny bone, you've enjoyed the most recent run of commercials for Old Spice body wash. Featuring an actor named Isaiah Mustafa, the ads are generally done in
Since breaking out as a star in the early years of this century, Colin Farrell has established himself as Hollywood's "beautiful people." He's ranked on lists in gossip magazines and earned the hearts of
It certainly looks like Horrible Bosses will be worth the wait. Not only was the script named one of the best unproduced pieces of 2005, but also now it’s got an entirely top-notch cast to bring it to life
On Wednesday, news came out that Paul Bettany and Simon Baker were joining the cast of Margin Call, an ensemble film that follows eight Wall Street investors for a 24-hour period during the 2008
The hardcore-Christian community can't be too happy with Paul Bettany's script choices over the last few years. Starting with The Da Vinci Code back in 2006, Bettany's filmography includes
Though Alex Gibney's documentary Casino Jack and the United States of Money got some buzz at this year's Sundance Film Festival, there's another take on shamed lobbyist Jack Abramoff coming down the pike
