BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
It's not uncommon that we hear about films that have been stuck in development hell for between five and 10 years, but paperback hero Mack Bolan has been waiting multiple decades for his time on the silver screen. After so many years, the character is finally being pulled off the shelf, and a writer has been hired to pen a new feature based around him, but it's amazing to think back on what could have been.
The leader of the Inhuman Royal Family is Black Bolt (aka Blackagar Boltagon - really), who has the ability to generate a concussive force through the use of his voice. The coup in getting Diesel to potentially play this role is that nerds need not fret about Marvel universe crossover: Groot only makes use of Diesel's voice, but because of his powers, Black Bolt is essentially a mute.
Of course, as the trailers have teased, Groot doesn't have a whole lot to say other than "I am Groot." Nonetheless, Vin Diesel took it upon himself to learn how to say his characters catchphrase in Brazilian Portuguese, Mandarin Chinese, French, Russian and Latin American Spanish to better be a part of Guardians of the Galaxy's impending world domination.
Described as a supernatural action film. The Last Witch Hunter will star Diesel as an immortal witch hunter (naturally) who is seeking to stop a current NYC coven from unleashing a devastating plague on mankind. But he can't do it alone, and so must team up with his natural enemy, a female witch presumably played by Leslie.
According to the report, the scene was supposed to involve “a souped-up yellow Chevelle” that would race another can and “dramatically pop a wheelie, as bystanders stand right by the track and cheer.”
"Our family is big and strong but it won’t ever quite be whole again without Paul. All of us -- those who’ve been here from the start and those whose first FAST film is 7 -- wanted to create a special film for him and for you. We believe we have," the letter reads.
The original The Fast and the Furious film had a large-scale car race known as Race Wars, where Brian had to prove his worth to the Dom and the gang. It was an early promise of the auto insanity that would become the trademark of this franchise.
After rumors of unrest on the set of Fast and Furious 7, Vin Diesel has responded with an indirect statement. A statement that explains why if the rumors are true, they aren't without reason.
Vin Diesel’s Facebook page remains a hotbed of information for all of his upcoming projects, from Fast and Furious 7 to Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, where he’ll play Groot. Wan reportedly is finishing up production on the latest Fast film, which will be in theaters on April 10, 2015.
We've previously reported that director James Wan would be able to finish the film thanks to the help of Walker's real-life family, and now we have photographic proof of how this might work, thanks to Vin Diesel.
The show prioritized the categories in which the winners were actually in attendance, which makes sense on paper but sadly, led to what should have been the most touching moment of the entire broadcast getting cut: the above acceptance speech from Vin Diesel.
When the short Guardians of the Galaxy featurette centering on Vin Diesel's Groot was released last week, I really only had one complaint: why not show us the character saying his famous line? In the comics, Groot is known for being an intelligent alien who only has the capacity to introduce himself, saying, "I am Groot," but the marketing for the film seems to make us want to wait for it
It's always a treat when an actor will go out of their way to give fans an inside look at their work. Vin Diesel is one of those actors, as he's often interacting with his fans on Facebook, sharing photos, thoughts and occasionally, inside information. The latest bit of bonus content comes in the form of Diesel up on his stilts for the role of Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Earlier this afternoon we got a special close-up look at one of the strangest, most fascinating characters in James Gunn's upcoming Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy, but you didn't really think the studio would stop there, right?
Based on a script by Cory Goodman, who previously wrote the Paul Bettany action movie Priest, The Last Witch Hunter centers on the titular character (Diesel) as he discovers that the island of Manhattan is being overtaken by witches, and he assigns himself the job of putting down the infestation.
Following up on yesterday’s news that Fast and Furious 7’s release date has been pushed back to April 10, 2015 comes a very vague but notable update on the plot of the new film, which not only indicates that Paul Walker's character will be a part of the movie, but that Walker himself will remain a lead.
Marvel’s “worst-kept secret” has been confirmed. Vin Diesel, gravel-voiced star of the Fast & Furious franchise, will lend his signature pipes to the character of Groot in Jaes Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Following the death of Paul Walker, the future of Fast & Furious 7 was uncertain, as the film was partway through production when Walker died tragically in a car accident late last month. Production has since been halted, but today, Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel has shared the new release date for the seventh film in the franchise
Diesel occasionally answers questions from fans with his signature mix of openness and mystique. In one of these informal facebook Q&As, Diesel recently dropped some curious claims about the upcoming Kojak remake, suggesting Life of Pi helmer Ang Lee might helm.
Based on the popular third person shooter video game series, Kane & Lynch will an anti-hero thriller that follows two escaped death row inmates on a quest to retrieve a heisted fortune.
Sooner or later, Hollywood is going to run out of people for Vin Diesel to fight on screen, and at that point Universal might have to park the Fast & Furious franchise in the garage for good. But that time has not arrived yet.
Vin Diesel Isn't Signed For Guardians Of The Galaxy Just Yet, Marvel Studios President Talks Ant-Man
If you were to ask Vin Diesel if he has a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he would tell you that he is playing the tree-like alien known as Groot in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. That, however, is not the same story that is being told by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.
This past weekend director James Gunn announced that principal production on Marvel Studio's Guardians of the Galaxy has come to and end - but there's still plenty of work that needs to be done. Just like all big, sci-fi blockbusters, the movie is going to need to spend a number of months in post-production so that digital effects artists and editors can put all of the finishing touches on the film and complete it as the director's original vision.
You’d think the film might be available on DVD and Blu-ray already, but Universal Studios Home Entertainment won’t be releasing Fast & Furious 6 onto Blu-ray or DVD until December 10. Fans who are super invested in nabbing a copy of the film will be able to purchase it on Digital HD beginning on November 19.
I really hope that this well-dressed first impression is nothing like Russell looks for the rest of the film. I truly want him to wear a suit made out of chainmail or knives or something. I know these movies aren’t so far out as The Expendables when it comes to ratcheting up the cheesiness, but it’s getting there, and I think Wan is the guy to blow the ceiling off.
