Released in 1997, 'The Devil's Advocate' starred Keanu Reeves as an up and coming lawyer who gets in way over his head when he's poached to work for a major firm in New York and discovers that his new boss (Al Pacino) is Lucifer himself. The film was a major success and helped launch the career of Charlize Theron, who went on to become one of Hollywood's biggest stars. 17 years later, we take a look back at the cast of this dark thriller and see what they're up to now.
Hot on the heels of yesterday's character posters, Universal has released the 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' trailer, giving us the first footage of Seth MacFarlane's live-action western comedy -- and it is really, really taking advantage of that red-band warning. There's blood, loads of profanity, and plenty of that crass humor we've come to associate with MacFarlane's endeavors. And Sarah Silverman's playing a prostitute, so you can imagine how that plays out.
Seth MacFarlane is following up his live-action directorial debut, 'Ted,' with 'A Million Ways to Die in the West,' a satirical Western-comedy with an all-star cast. Regardless of how you feel about MacFarlane's animated projects, like 'Family Guy' and 'American Dad,' his latest effort is sure to get butts in seats ... especially after you take a gander at these new character posters, featuring some pretty pun-tastic, old-timey captions.
After the massive success of his directorial debut, 'Ted,' 'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane had the clout to make pretty much whatever he wanted for his second feature. A Western comedy called 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' probably wasn't the easiest project to push through development (the difficult word for the studio must have been "Western"), but we've got to commend MacFarlane for making a film that appears to be significantly different than his previous work. The first image from the film has arrived online, and it features three things that we can't wait to see and one that we're very unsure about.
It may not prove as successful or award-winning as History's Emmy and Golden Globe-winning miniseries, but NBC's modern 'Hatfields & McCoys' update from producer Charlize Theron is rolling full steam ahead. Updating the classic rivalry to a modernized Pittsburgh setting, the tentatively titled 'Hatfields & McCoys' remake with a pilot order has officially cast actress Virginia Madsen in the role of the McCoy matriarch, but how tied to the original story will the modern update be?
Seth MacFarlane is seemingly Hollywood's busiest man. Not only does he have a block of animated programing on the Fox network, he just made the smash hit 'Ted,' is about to host the Oscars, and has at least two movies in the works. Though there was word that 'Ted 2' would be filming shortly, it looks like his comic Western 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' is coming first, and will be co-starring Charlize Theron.
The Hatfields and McCoys may have lived and died over 100 years ago, as well History's Emmy and Golden Globe-winning mini-series have come and gone, but that won't be the last we've heard from the feuding families. NBC has officially given a pilot order to a modern-day update of the classic rivalry, to be executive produced by actress Charlize Theron, but how will a modern day 'Hatfields & McCoys' unfold? Find out how the rivalry gets updated for the 21st century inside!
Are Vikings the next big thing? For some time now we've been hearing about The History Channel crafting a sweeping original drama about the Viking age, aptly titled 'Vikings,' and now it seems that A-list actress Charlize Theron has stolen a bit of their thunder. We've just learned that the recent 'Snow White and the Huntsman' actress has begun developing 'The Clan' with NBC, but what major film talent is already aboard?
