Joel Silver Producing New Supernatural Action Movie Sanctuary
Joel Silver has been responsible for a hell of a lot of our greatest entertainment over the last three decades or so. Starting his career in the late 70s with a role as an associate producer for The Warriors, during the 80s he found talents like Shane Black, and made kickass movies like Die Hard, Predator, Lethal Weapon and Commando. In the late 90s he bet on a pair of sibling directors named Wachowski and the result was The Matrix

Warner Bros. Bringing Lew Archer To Screen With The Galton Case
You gotta love a good detective story. Hollywood certainly does, and over the years some of the best fictional detectives have made their way onto TV and movie screens, played by actors ranging from Humphrey Bogart to James Garner.

Dominic Cooper In Talks To Star In Albert Hughes' Motor City
It's a real shame, but Dominic Cooper is almost assuredly going to be robbed of an Oscar nomination for his dual performance in The Devil's Double. Between the movie being released in August and only making a little over $1 million at the domestic box office, the Academy will probably look over it in favor or more populist or Oscar-bait-y fare.

Justin Timberlake Wants To Revive The Buddy Cop Comedy
It probably doesn't mean much good for the actual Lethal Weapon reboot if this project now has a major star attached, but then again that's probably a good thing-- the buddy cop comedy is eternal, but Murtaugh and Riggs deserve to fade into the past with dignity
