Will Smith Still Attached To D.J. Caruso's Supernatural Thriller Selling Time
Big-budget supernatural thrillers are not films that Hollywood handles with any sort of consistency, and itís a wonder they continue doing it. But money is money, and director D.J. Caruso will head back to that style of flashy filmmaking following a dip into calmer waters with 2013ís YA novel adaptation Standing Up.
The Muppets Screenwriter Hired To Rewrite Adam McKay's Uptown Saturday Night Remake
In Uptown Saturday Night, the two leads sneak out of their homes over to a snazzy nightclub of the illegal variety. (Psst. Itís got women in it.) A robbery occurs while theyíre there and they have to track down their wallets. Funny stuff ensues, but not quite hilarity. I have no doubt that McKay and Stoller are the perfect pair to deliver solid laughs, but are Washington and Smith the right pair to pull it off?
Will Smith And Director Shawn Levy Team For Ocean-Spanning Adventure City That Sails
Have you ever loved someone so much that you changed cities to be with them? Thereís a good chance you may have, but did you ever actually move a city across an ocean in order to do it?

Will Smith Might Be In Independence Day 2 After All
Keep in mind that Emmerich is once again doing promotional duties for White House Down, this time in Australia, and is probably working extra hard after the movie flopped in the United States. This is a man who has destroyed the White House three times on film-- do you really put it past him to drop a possibly fictitious hint about Will Smith for the sake of getting us to talk about his movie again? I sure don't.
Will Smith Will Train Margot Robbie In The Art Of Conning In Focus
The cast of the crime drama Focus has been a revolving door for over a year now, but the spinning seems to have finally come to an end. Variety reports that newcomer Margot Robbie is in early talks to star opposite Will Smith in the film, from Crazy Stupid Love co-writers and co-directors John Requa and Glen Ficarra.
Independence Day 2 Can't Afford Will Smith, But More Familiar Faces Will Return
But don't start getting concerned that he's totally averse to big names appearing. In addition to the promised return of Bill Pullman as (now) ex-President Thomas Whitmore, Emmerich says about half of the characters in the current script are familiar from the first film, while half of them are new. Of course, one of those familiar characters could easily be Smith's stepson
Sandra Bullock Could Be Miss Hannigan In The New Annie
Alright, maybe little girls spend more fantasizing about planning Annie someday, but for adult actresses, the pickings don't get much better than Miss Hannigan. The blowsy, funny, washed-up drunk who's put in charge of a girl's orphanage, Miss Hannigan gets many of the best songs in Annie, nearly all of the good lines, and is the rare part in musical theater: a really, really good one for a woman who's not under 30
Will Smith Has No Interest In Men In Black 4
It should be noted that Smith gave these comments at an After Earth junket prior to the movie under-performing at the box office. Maybe the low number for Smithís collaboration with M. Night Shyamalan will change his mind? Because we all know that actors love running back to the safety net of a proven franchise when they experience a bomb. Smith might reconsider Men In Black 4 if his egoís badly bruised.

Will Smith In Talks To Star In Reimagining Of The Wild Bunch

Will Smith Attached To Real-Life Drama American Can, Eyeing Thriller The Accountant
