You don't have to watch the first 'The Counselor' trailer for it to have your attention. All you have to know is that it is directed by Ridley Scott, written by the legendary Cormac McCarthy and stars Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem. If you know all of this and aren't already planning to go out of your way to see it, you have no business being a movie fan.
Sometimes when a film is released, the people involved will talk up a sequel regardless if one will actually happen. Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' set up a sequel, and both Scott and star Noomi Rapace suggested that 'Prometheus 2' would happen, but little came of it. Until today, as a writer has just been hired to pen the sequel.
Christian Bale was once in talks to star as Noah in Darren Aronofsky's upcoming film. While that role eventually went to Russell Crowe, Bale is getting a second chance at a biblical character. The erstwhile Dark Knight is in talks to star in 'Exodus' - a film about the life of Moses for director Ridley Scott ('Prometheus').
'Prometheus 2' was announced shortly after the original film hit theaters. Since then we've been left to wonder whether 'Prometheus 2' would happen (or should happen). The film's original writers - Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts - won't be left to return but star Noomi Rapace is eager to come back for a 'Prometheus 2' and said the script they're working on for the sequel is "incredible."
When we last left Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus,' the film had grossed a weak $126 million domestically but a slightly more promising $400 million worldwide. Those numbers didn't suggest that a sequel was going to be coming any time soon, while writer Damon Lindelof announced he wouldn't be involved with the follow up, which suggested that a sequel was never going to happen. But there's hope for a sequel yet as star Noomi Rapace has reported that the script is being worked on right now.
A few months ago we brought you the news that Showtime and acclaimed director Ridley Scott were plotting an ambitious, if controversial move to craft a drama around the papal scene of 'The Vatican,' one surely spurred along by the recent real-life controversy in Rome. As the pilot season soldiers on, Showtime's 'The Vatican' has made some impressive additions to the cast, most recently that of 'Friday Night Lights' and 'Zero Dark Thirty' star Kyle Chandler! Find out Coach Taylor's new holy role on 'The Vatican' inside!
AMC will very likely have some holes in its schedule to fill over the next few years, what with 'Breaking Bad' coming to a close this summer and 'Mad Men' due to end after its seventh season. And with the phenomenal success of 'The Walking Dead,' the network seems to have the foothold its needs for making major steps in genre programming. Along that line, AMC has begun development of an adaptation of Dan Simmons' supernatural period piece 'The Terror,' with horror legend Ridley Scott in the executive producer's chair, but will 'The Terror' really live up to its name?
We've said it before, and we'll say it again. TV continues to become more and more of a medium that Hollywood's biggest directors can find an outlet. Showtime in particular is no doubt on the hunt for more high-profile programming with the (likely) imminent loss of 'Dexter' and 'Californication, as well as 'The Big C,' so what's next? Why not turn to master director Ridley Scott, helming his first-ever TV pilot 'The Vatican!' Find out the story inside!
With the release of 'Prometheus' on Blu-ray and DVD, we can probably expect the debates that raged this past summer to fire up again; it's hard to think of another recent sci-fi movie fueling so many arguments. However, one thing the film's supporters and detractors will be able to agree upon is that the version we're seeing now is vastly different from what could have been, now that screenwriter Jon Spaihts is discussing his original vision for the Ridley Scott pic.
Did you know that it once contained facehuggers and xenomorphs? Or that it would have depicted the grossest sex scene ever? All that and more revealed after the break!
