Superhero movies like ‘The Avengers’ aren’t the only genres permitted to mash characters together for the benefit of a heart-pumping action story. Spy thrillers apparently are able to venture down that path, as well. And so if audiences embrace Jeremy Renner as the lead agent in this summer’s ‘The Bourne Legacy,’ the creative team already has gone on record to say they'd like to see him team with a special guest star in the follow-up: Matt Damon.
Universal Pictures doesn't just have the 'Fast & Furious' franchise to rely on to bring in big bucks. It also has the Bourne franchise, which so far has raked in over $944 million dollars worldwide, with a fourth entry set for release on August 3rd. At least, it used to be August 3rd...
One of the late, great Elizabeth Taylor's most memorable film roles was that of the sexually-frustrated Maggie in Tennessee Williams' 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.'
Now the 1955 Pulitzer Prize-winning play on which the movie was based is getting (yet another) Broadway revival, and Scarlett Johansson has reportedly been tapped to star.
'The Avengers' has a release date of May 4 - close to a month away - so prepare to be bombarded with more images, product-placements, commercials and toys than ever before. Though the film should perform well regardless, it's still a make or break picture for Marvel Studios, and the film they have been building toward for at least five years, cinematically speaking. Here are some images of making that dream come true, including this one of Jeremy Renner performing in front of a green screen.
It's the first screenplay written by Cormac McCarthy, Michael Fassbender is starring, and Ridley Scott is directing. That's enough to get us interested but they're not done yet. 'The Counselor' is drawing some serious attention across Hollywood and two recent Oscar-winners and one Oscar-nominee are interested in joining its ranks.
Matt Damon who?
Universal wanted to continue the 'Bourne' franchise but the only problem was that Damon and director Paul Greengrass weren't all that interested. So they went ahead without him and brought in Oscar-nominee Jeremy Renner to take over as a new Bourne. Who isn't a Bourne. Or is he? I'm already confused.
