After years of stalling, The Crowded Room is finally moving forward. Leonardo DiCaprio will star in and produce the film about the first man to successfully use multiple personality disorder as a defense during a trial. The actor has had his eye on this project for almost 20 years, and playing someone with multiple personalities holds a certain attraction for someone like DiCaprio, allowing him to show off a range of acting talents over the duration of one film.

A few weeks back, Zack Snyder revealed our first look at Jason Momoa as Aquaman, who will make his big screen debut in Batman vs. Superman—along with a few other notable DC heroes. With all the casting info and plot details we’ve learned over the last year, that film seems like it should be about three hours long when all is said and done. No stranger to speaking out about his role as Aquaman, Momoa has once again opened up about the upcoming film, revealing just how big his part is, as well as his surprise when Snyder tweeted that photo.
We’ve been hoping and wishing for a MacGruber sequel for years, and even though the first film didn’t do well theatrically, there’s been a glimmer of hope with Will Forte and director Jorma Taccone teasing the possibility of a sequel for a while. Today brings the first legitimate assurance that the sequel is actually, really happening, with Forte revealing that MacGruber 2 is “priority number one” after he completes production on The Last Man on Earth.
ScreenCrush wraps up the latest in movies and TV you might have missed. Today, Disney announced a very weird Star Wars series, Spain reveals a Lord of the Rings theme park, and Eddie Redmayne shows off a new look.
Few pop culture icons carry the weight of martial artist Bruce Lee, who arrived on the Hollywood scene with a bang, blew the minds of an entire generation, and then tragically died at the painfully young age of 32. His life story is a fascinating one...
Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. This old adage applies everywhere, but it especially applies in Hollywood, where major studios are vying to make a re-imagined “gritty” Robin Hood movie only five years after the previous re-imagined “gritty” Robin Hood movie was a colossal critical and financial failure. That brings us to Robin Hood: Origins (actual title), which brings the number of Robin Hood movies currently in development up to three.
The late, great Leonard Nimoy, who died earlier today at the age of 83, will always be Mr. Spock, second-in-command of the USS Enterprise under Captain James T. Kirk. For a long time, Nimoy was not okay with this. And then, over the years, he embraced the character that defined his career and inspired an entire generation of fans (many of whom became scientists, engineers, and astronauts). But Nimoy didn't just sit back and rest on his Vulcan laurels. When he wasn't wearing those pointy ears, Nimoy was acting, directing, writing, singing, and lending his likeness and distinctive voice to commercials and TV specials. He was a real Hollywood renaissance man, dabbling in high art, low art, and everything in-between.
We're on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, inside the new Avengers Tower; formerly Stark Tower and now converted to a de facto headquarters for the Earth’s mightiest heroes. It’s all very sleek and shiny and pretty much exactly what you'd expect from a place Tony Stark calls home. Except now, it's a complete disaster. There's broken glass scattered across the floor. Furniture is destroyed. There are giant gashes in the wall. There's a production assistant dramatically swinging a giant cape around (the actors film their fight scenes without the cape, and the cape is added later in post-production).
The onslaught of character posters for Avengers: Age of Ultron continues! Like a hoard of self-replicating Ultrons, these things have been steadily hitting the internet all week, but today saw the biggest assault yet, with three new posters arriving at once. Check out the character posters for Thor, Nick Fury, and Black Widow below!
Five years after its initial release, does anyone care about James Cameron’s Avatar or its upcoming sequels? Disney bet countess millions of dollars on a “yes” when it officially broke ground on The World of Pandora, a new expansion to their Animal Kingdom park at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Although the actual park “land” is still a massive dirt pit filled with construction equipment, Disney has released a brief new video showcasing some of the technology and scenery that will be featured in their latest theme park endeavor and we’d be lying if we said it didn’t look awfully impressive.
