Earlier today we heard that the wave of movie-to-TV adaptations had only grown stronger, with the Christian Bale classic 'American Psycho' being brought to the small screen, but we're not out of the woods yet. New reports reveal that 20th Century Fox TV has partnered with New Regency to adapt the story behind 2004 Denzel Washington thriller 'Man on Fire,' as well as graphic novel 'Cyclops.'
As the 'Fast and Furious' series has progressed, the cast has steadily increased in size and star power. Just look at the line-up of this summer's 'Fast and Furious 6,' which somehow managed to wrangle up every cast member from across the franchise while adding a few more faces. Well, it looks like another character will be joining the crew for 'Fast and Furious 7,' but he will not be played by Denzel Washington...because he turned down the role.
There's the old quote repeated by John Lennon, "life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans." '2 Guns,' starring the formidable Denzel Washington and the affable Mark Wahlberg, feels like the type of movie big stars make when they are in-between the projects they'll end up being proud of. '2 Guns' isn't terrible – it's just rare to see a movie content with “agreeable in-flight entertainment” as its highest achievement.
Though we aren't yet into August, the summer movie season is winding down. '2 Guns' opens this Friday, and it stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, but it's hard to compare it to the big event films like 'Iron Man 3' or 'Man of Steel.' Maybe that's why there's a brand new trailer for the film to help get people excited for its release in four days.
Denzel Washington starring in a film version of the '80s TV series 'The Equalizer' had our curiosity, but the casting of Chloe Moretz ensures that it has our attention. The young 'Kick-Ass' and 'Let Me In' star will a play a young prostitute in the film who crosses paths with Washington's spy-turned-investigator.
Do you like Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg cracking jokes with each other while watching them shoot things and blow stuff up? Well then, you're probably gonna love '2 Guns.'
There's been word of Denzel Washington starring in a big screen version of 'The Equalizer' for a while now, which suggests that this project will eventually hit the big screen. For a while 'Drive' director Nicolas Winding Refn was attached, but that didn't work out, so now they're going for 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' helmer Rupert Wyatt.
Insert your own "the prodigal son has returned" joke here, but there's no denying how exciting it is that director Robert Zemeckis has finally released himself from his experimental motion capture prison and is back to making real movies. His first live action film since 'Cast Away' in 2000, 'Flight' premiered to positive reviews at the New York Film Festival and looks like it may be a big player in the upcoming awards season. But you're here because a new clip has been released from the film, so scroll on down!
