We'd recently heard a bit about 'The Matrix' star Keanu Reeves getting in on the TV game with a starring role in Slingshot Global Media's action series 'Rain,' but it seems the erstwhile Neo is taking an even deeper dive into some well-worn territory. Joining Roland Emmerich, Reeves will retreat back into virtual reality to executive produce a new sci-fi series dubbed 'New Angeles.'
Earlier today when the 'Cliffhanger' reboot was announced, we joked that Hollywood was turning to action movies (and seemingly specifically action movies from the nineties) as the new hot property to remake/reboot. Now there's word that 'Stargate' will not only be rebooted by its original creators Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin, but the plan is to turn the reboot into a trilogy.
We hope you like yourself some Michael B. Jordan. The actor, who is rightly earning raves for his role in 'Fruitvale Station,' has been attached to just about every upcoming franchise in Hollywood including 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' the 'Fantastic Four' reboot and a 'Rocky' spinoff.
The last time director Roland Emmerich talked about 'Independence Day 2,' original franchise star Will Smith was not going to be involved. At all. He was "too expensive," a "marquee name" who would be "too much." But a few months (and some time to think about the bomb that was 'After Earth') can make all the difference in the world -- it looks like Smith may end up joining the highly anticipated sequel after all.
Roland Emmerich, the director of such disaster-heavy films as 'Independence Day,' '2012,' 'The Day After Tomorrow' and the last 'Godzilla' movie, set his sights on the White House in 'White House Down.' Starring Channing Tatum as Secret Service hopeful John Cale and Jamie Foxx as US President James Sawyer, this "Die Hard in the White House" film starts like any other day until a team of domestic terrorists infiltrate and bring down the White House.
Though iconic, disaster-movie director Roland Emmerich will let loose his latest project, 'White House Down,' to the masses this week, talk has already honed in on his next big movie -- 'Independence Day 2.' Since Fox set a release date for July 3, 2015, inquiring minds want to know the latest details.
Few summer movies look as fun as 'White House Down.' After getting to see eight minutes of footage during a special presentation, hosted by director Roland Emmerich and stars Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, we see this as a nice change of pace from all the superhero and sci-fi offerings of late. Now the latest clip from the film only makes its charm and sense of humor stand out more from the familiar "Die Hard in the White House!" formula.
