First announced last year, the remake / reboot of Jumanji based on the classic book-turned-adventure film starring Robin Williams seemed like a baffling idea. What could possibly make the average movie-goer excited about this remake? A great cast, for starters, and it looks like we might get just that as everyone’s new favorite odd comedic coupling are in talks to star in the new Jumanji movie.

The death of Paul Walker left some mighty big shoes to fill in the Fast & Furious franchise. Some film series might have packed it in after the death of one of its biggest stars, but the Fast-verse is a little bit different than your average blockbuster property. For one thing, characters have been coming and going from its ever-expanding storyline from the very beginning. For another, Furious 7 was the biggest movie in the series to date by a very large margin; it’s worldwide box office total was almost double that of Fast & Furious 6. So these movies aren’t going anywhere. But they do need some new stars.
There’s been no official confirmation from Universal on Charlize Theron’s casting as the villain in Fast 8, but whomever eventually ends up as the big bad in the Fast & Furious sequel can rest easy knowing they’ll have at least one henchman at their disposal. Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju, aka Tormund Giantsbane, has joined the cast of Fast 8 as an associate of the new antagonist. Until we find out who that is, let’s continue to cross our fingers and whisper “please be Charlize Theron, please be Charlize Theron.”
It’s not enough to inspire #SquadGoals, but at least the cast of Baywatch looks like they’re having a blast in the latest photo update from Dwayne Johnson. The actor shows off his new squad, and sure, this could be a photo from the Baywatch set — or it could be the centerfold in a Macy’s summer catalogue. Baywatch Squadgate 2016, you be the judge
You can’t have a Baywatch movie without David Hasselhoff. Just a few weeks ago, Dwayne Johnson confirmed what we all assumed by announcing that the star of the original series would be joining the upcoming film, and now we have photographic evidence. While we wait to find out if his equally iconic co-star Pamela Anderson will also be making an appearance in the Baywatch movie, enjoy this set of photos featuring the Hoff and his new pals.
Today, a dynamite interview with The Nice Guys director Shane Black ran over at Thrillist. It’s a good read — not only does Matt Patches get at some nifty insights about violence on film and working with Ryan Gosling, but he extracts two tantalizing tidbits from Black that will only enflame fan anticipation for his upcoming projects.
Alexandra Daddario was the first female actor to join Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron’s R-rated Baywatch shenanigans, but she’s been curiously absent from Johnson’s growing collection of set photos on Instagram. Don’t worry, San Andreas fans (all four of you), Daddario has officially suited up and reunited with her co-star for the upcoming film based on the classic ’90s series.
Baywatch doesn’t hit theaters until next summer, so it’s going to be quite a while before we see the first trailer or official photos. Thankfully, Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron are pretty fond of Instagram, and the pair have been sharing lots of images from the set, including our first looks at co-stars Kelly Rohrbach, Priyanka Chopra and Ilfenesh Hadera. If nothing else, the R-rated comedy has a diverse cast and they all look like they’re having a blast.
David Hasselhoff is famous for many things, not all of them good: for holding the Guinness World Record for the highest reverse bungee jump (seriously), for his extended stint as a man willing to have protracted conversations with a car on Knight...
HBO’s The Brink may not have survived to a second season, but that hasn’t stopped its 2015 comedy companion from a second round. Yes, Dwayne Johnson‘s Entourage-tastic Ballers is back for Season 2, getting mistaken for Vin Diesel in the first official trailer.
