With 'Django Unchained' largely in the rear view mirror, and 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' currently shooting, Jamie Foxx has pulled a fast one on fans today by announcing his commitment to a new TV project. The Academy Award-winning star will write, direct, produce, and potentially even star in a new horror anthology miniseries for Syfy, but what about the mysterious project could attract such a big Hollywood name?
'Amazing Spider-Man 2' has no shortage of villains. Jamie Foxx stars as Electro, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin and Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn/Green Goblin II (which theoretically will lead to the Sinister Six in 'Amazing Spider-Man 3'). But how will these villains look and be introduced in the film? We've got some details.
Although the first ‘White House Down’ trailer hit tonight, we already got a look at the footage … well, us and two small movie theater-filled audiences. Director Roland Emmerich brought along Jamie Foxx to the Union Square AMC theater in NYC for the big reveal of the trailer, while Channing Tatum wa
'White House Down' may look a little familiar -- it is the second "'Die Hard' in the White House" movie of 2013 -- but it's also the bigger budget summer blockbuster version. Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx star in this Roland Emmerich summer extravaganza, and they waited until just after 'Olympus has Fallen' was released to debut their trailer.
When 'Horrible Bosses' came out in 2011, it was one of a wave of comedies unleashed that summer (including 'Bridesmaids,' 'The Hangover Part II' and 'Bad Teacher'), but it was also one of the most successful, as it made over a hundred million at the box office on a smaller budget. Though it's hard to know how Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman could have new horrible bosses, all have signed on for a sequel.
While Jamie Foxx will soon hit the big screen in the title role of Quentin Tarantino's latest, 'Django Unchained,' the world is still reeling from his next big casting (excuse the pun) shocker -- he'll be starring in Marc Webb's upcoming 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' as the villain Electro.
Comic book fans know some details about this character already, including his ability to wield electricity, but how close exactly is Webb planning on sticking with his story line from the comics? Fortunately, we don't have think on it much, as Foxx has already revealed the origins of Spidey's nemesis.
'Django Unchained' hasn't even debuted to the masses yet but we already know it's a cinematic force to be reckoned with as it's been nominated for five categories in the 2013 Golden Globes, including Best Picture and Best Director. Also gettings noms for Quentin Tarantino's latest are Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz for Best Supporting Actors, and now you can sample a bit of their award-worthy performances in the latest clip.
His name is Django and as he's quick to point out, the D is silent. It's just about the only quiet part of Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained,' a boisterous, bloody blaxploitation/Western hybrid. What else would you expect from Tarantino, the modern master of genre pastiche, flavorful dialogue, and grossly exaggerated violence? Whatever 'Django''s issues -- and it has a couple -- failing to deliver on its promises isn't one of them. If anything, the issue is the exact opposite.
