BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
It turns out Bill Murray is even better than we have collectively imagined. The comedian who has forged his own path in film and in fun has a reputation for committing only to projects that interest him, and it appears his passion to see those films made right far exceeds his interest in money.
Can we all just take a second to appreciate how wonderful it is to never have to worry about seeing Bill Murray in a movie like Larger Than Life again? I guess it’s technically possible but doubtful anytime soon. Since he’s already worked with directors such as George Clooney and Wes Anderson this year, I guess there’s no harm in him throwing a Cameron Crowe movie on the pile.
Based on a script by Mitch Glazer, who previously worked with Murray on the absolutely awful film Passion Play, the new movie tells the story of a "burned-out music manager" who flies off to the Middle East when his last remaining client signs up for the USO tour. After a series of events, the protagonist finds himself alone, broke and stranded in Afghanistan without a passport...
John McNaughton has said that another Wild Things film is in the works, and that he’s working on it with screenwriter Stephen Peters, who wrote the original film as well as Wild Things 2 and Wild Things: Diamonds in the Rough. But forget about everything you’ve seen after the first one, because they want the new sequel to tell the story of the original movie's characters' children.
Were you expecting a three-part Bill Murray video essay when you woke up today? Probably not. But as it turns out, it's totally the perfect way to spend your afternoon, revisiting some of the highlights from nearly all of Murray's films, but not necessarily focusing on all the most famous stuff. There are instantly recognizable clips from Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day, of course, but not necessarily the most famous lines, plus scenes from movies like Tootsie and Little Shop of Horrors
Who could possibly picture Murray as a corrupt, thieving, lying gambler? McCarthy will play his new neighbor, a single mother whose multi-shift hospital schedule forces her hand in asking De Van Nuys to look after her good-hearted 12-year-old son. Though the elder gentleman subjects the boy to much of his bad behavior, only the positive aspects are filtered through. It’s hard to see where this project could go wrong, especially if Melfi’s script is as affecting as its buzz has implied
This past summer, Aykroyd finally admitted Murray was out of Ghostbusters 3, which to many movie fans—myself included—seems like reason enough to let this project die. However, when Aykroyd is not promoting his Crystal Head vodka, he's cheerleading for Ghostbusters 3. Speaking with Esquire, Aykroyd insisted that not only was the project still brewing, but also there's nothing Murray can do to stop it.
Are we ready for the return of Charlie Sheen? Will we ever been? Ever since the Two and a Half Men star exploded early last year he's been pretty easy to avoid, and for those of us who got quickly sick of "tiger blood" and everything else, it was a relief. But early next year Sheen is making a comeback that will be difficult to ignore
It's hard to even decide what the most intriguing thing is about A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III. We first learned of it as a directorial effort from Roman Coppola, brother of Sofia and son of Francis Ford, who made his first feature CQ over a decade ago. It got even more fascinating when Coppola cast the self-destructive Charlie Sheen as the titular Charles
When George Clooney calls and asks you to take part in his next movie, you apparently say yes no matter who you are. The actor-turned-director, who earned a Best Director Oscar nomination for Good Night, And Good Luck, has been assembling a list of names for his next project, Monuments Men and it's a pretty star-studded affair
The movie’s working title is The Grand Budapest Hotel, which IMDB says can be described as “a European story.” And today, frequent Anderson collaborator Bill Murray revealed that he is heading to Germany to film scenes.
"It's sad but we're passing it on to a new generation. Ghostbusters 3 can be a successful movie without Bill," Aykroyd said. "My preference would be to have him involved but at this point he doesn't seem to be coming and we have to move on. It's time to make the third one.”
The dramedy is described as a coming-of-age tale about a 12-year-old who watches his parents go through a divorce. During this time he befriends and gets to know his next door neighbor, an elderly man who is a "war veteran whose life mainly consists of drinking, gambling and prostitute." As spend more time together the younger begins to see the elder as a mentor. For a while it was rumored that Jack Nicholson would play the part that Murray is in talks for.
Wes Anderson may not make a lot of movies, but every time out he swings for the fences with his casts. In addition to his ability to get Bill Murray to come back time and time again - his script selection process is notoriously rigorous but he has been in every Anderson film since Rushmore - the director has been bringing incredibly talented actors together for years...
Hyde Park on Hudson takes place in June 1939, when President Roosevelt (Murray) and his wife Eleanor (Murray's Rushmore co-star Olivia Williams) invited Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and King George VI (Samuel West) to visit his country home. Amid the culture clash of these proper Brits
