A few days ago we learned that Bruce Willis had abruptly exited Woody Allen’s upcoming untitled project, less than 24 hours after photos showed Willis filming a scene on set. Willis’ departure caused a bizarre amount of speculation, with rumors circulating about his commitments to Misery on Broadway, though the most likely reason for Willis leaving was that he just wasn’t right for the part. It seems as though Allen has already found his replacement, and all is right in the Woody Allen universe.
Bill Murray loves getting lost.
Yesterday, photos of Bruce Willis filming director Woody Allen’s latest (and currently untitled) movie surfaced online and the everything seemed fine. Just another late-era Allen production that inexplicably features a killer line-up of movie stars! Move along, nothing to see here! However, something seems to have gone horribly wrong between yesterday and today because Willis has abruptly dropped out of the film. That’s the news. What follows is gossip, albeit interesting gossip.
It seems NBC’s unusual attempt to get back into the comic business after Constantine was just the tip of the iceberg, and the latest will literally have you seeing red. Calling all retired geriatric super-spies: Red is officially coming to TV with a new hourlong drama from the star-studded films’ creators.
If you’ve gotta go to Afghanistan, traveling with Bill Murray doesn’t seem like a bad way to go…maybe. The first trailer for Rock the Kasbah is here, in which Murray plays an aging rock manager taking his last remaining client (Zooey Deschanel) on a USO tour of Afghanistan. Naturally, things go awry and wacky shenanigans occur and Bill Murray sings “Smoke on the Water,” further cementing his status as a dad icon.
Woody Allen’s latest film, Irrational Man, hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but the prolific director has already begun planning his next project, which isn’t exactly surprising. Allen, who has consistently delivered one film each year, has selected an interesting trio of actors to headline his next, untitled project: Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Bruce Willis. Bruce Willis in a Woody Allen film? What?
A sleepwalking Bruce Willis. A premise torn straight out of ‘Westworld.’ A robot borrowed from the hard-drive containing assets from ‘I, Robot.’ A blank-faced blonde dodging bullets. Thomas Jane looking like he just wants his kids back. Yes siree, the ‘Vice’ trailer has it all!
It's a tale as old as TV, that the cancellation of one series leads to speculation of a cinematic return, or a new outlet to continue the story. Starz's cancelled 'Magic City' might be the craziest example we've heard yet, however, returning the 1960's Jeffrey Dean Morgan Miami crime drama to the big screen, and adding the likes of Bruce Willis and Bill Murray!
What follows isn’t so much an interview with Nick Kroll as it is … well, I’m not sure exactly what it is. Here’s what happened. I was supposed to interview both Kroll and Joel McHale at the same time about their movie at the Toronto International Film Festival, ‘Adult Beginners.’ At our scheduled interview time, McHale wasn’t there. We were told that he was on his way, stuck in traffic, so we waited. Now, knowing that McHale would soon join us, I didn’t want to ask anything too specific about ‘Adult Beginners,’ just to have to repeat the question again once McHale arrived. McHale never did show up...
"Summertime! Summertime, people!" Sure, Bruce Willis. We can blame this on it being the summertime. The actor hit 'The Late Show' last night to ... honestly, we don't even know, but eventually it devolved into Willis eating corn on the cob harmonica-style and getting absolutely covered in melted butter. It seems that Willis is a huge fan of corn -- can't get enough of it! -- and he was eager to share some corn-centric life hacks with host David Letterman.
