There are some directors who seem to be able to summon great casts with a simple snap of their fingers and the great David Cronenberg is one of them. His latest film, 'Maps to the Stars,' has not only secured financing, but a cast that includes Robert Pattinson, John Cusack and Julianne Moore.

‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ Sequel to Shoot This Summer?

MGM

We're not sure if the 2010 comedy 'Hot Tub Time Machine' has too many devoted fans, but we do know that it made a small profit at the box office before becoming a solid hit on DVD. And that's apparently enough to get a sequel off the ground! We had heard previous rumblings of a sequel, but the the latest update has come out of WonderCon, straight from star Craig Robinson's own mouth.

Though the film was not the runaway hit hoped for when released in 2010, 'Hot Tub Time Machine' has proved popular enough on home video that MGM is exploring making a sequel to the time-travel comedy. And right now they're talking to everyone but star John Cusack.

John Cusack to Star in Rush Limbaugh Biopic?

John Cusack is a good-looking movie star with a full head of hair and a medium build. He's also a incredibly outspoken liberal. Those traits make him an odd choice to play Rush Limbaugh, the famously heavyset, balding conservative talk radio show host who has a habit of saying controversial (i.e., incredibly stupid) things. Still, this the movies: anything can happen and anyone can play anyone.

Sibling Revivalry: Watching ‘Say Anything’ For the First Time

'Say Anthing'
20th Century Fox

I hatched the idea to screen 'Say Anything' for our next Sibling Revivalry column last month while Lindsay and I were driving back to New York City from our cousin’s Newport wedding. Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” came on the radio, and we both sighed. “I love this song,” Lindsay said. “'Say Anything,'” I responded. “Uh… anything?” she replied.

This, of course, opened the screeching floodgates of, “You don’t know?!” and “I can’t believe you haven’t seen!” and “But… but… LLOYD DOBLER!” exclamations that resulted in a bleeding heartfelt description of every possible merit surrounding director Cameron Crowe’s painfully great 1989 debut. I’m not sure which of my fervent re-quotes or euphoric utterances convinced her, but she agreed – right there in that rental car, while listening to the dulcet tones of Mr. Gabriel – to give the flick a shot.

‘Breaking Bad’ Almost Had John Cusack Star as Walter White

With the fifth (and sadly final) season of 'Breaking Bad' unfolding before our very eyes and following the show's first successful visit to Comic-Con 2012, we're all basking in the glory of having Walter White grace our television screens once more. However, did you know that Bryan Cranston's iconic portrayal wasn't AMC's first choice for the role? In fact, two Hollywood stars nearly took it, and you'll never believe who was almost the one who knocks.

'Grand Piano' is already appealing just because of its wonderful story concept -- it's an independent thriller described as 'Speed' with a piano. Awesome, right? That and you have Elijah Wood starring in the picture. But what could make this even cooler? Possibly adding John Cusack into the mix.

‘The Raven’ Review

The Raven
Relativity Media

“Not the bees!” - Nicolas Cage, 2008.

“Emi-LLLLLLLY!” - John Cusack, 2012.

Picture this. John Cusack and Luke “You Kinda Recognize Me” Evans are chasing clues in the hopes of rescuing Alice Eve's Emily Hamilton, the daughter of society who we know is buried somewhere in a 'Kill Bill'-proof coffin. Evans and Edgar Allan Poe (you know, from 9th grade) address their assembled troops in the dank, dreary and remarkably color-saturated bowels of the city sewer system.

“When I blow my whistle like this,” Evans says, taking a moment to toot on a whistle, “we'll shout her name like this. . .” At which point Cusack, who, I swear was cool at one point in my lifetime, takes a deep breath, conjures his inner-Wiseau and screams “Emi-LLLLLLLLLY!”

And the only people who aren't laughing in the audience are the ones who've already fallen asleep. I'll give it credit for being memorable, unlike everything else in this dumbass picture that is a steaming hot plate of snooze.
