Most successful movie to TV adaptations have some foot in the original creative pool, and CBS’ upcoming Training Day series followed the trend with director Antoine Fuqua, and possibly Ethan Hawke. Sadly, Fuqua has relinquished his role as director of the pilot outing, while negotiations with Hawke fell through, but why? Is Training Day already in trouble?
Crowded TV landscape as it is, no one was terribly surprised to hear Training Day had been added to the list of TV’s many movie properties, albeit with the benefit of director Antoine Fuqua aboard. Now, we’ve learned Ethan Hawke may have in mind to reprise his role from the 2001 film as well, though the level of involvement may change in development.
Clive Owen. Dane DeHaan. Ethan Hawke. Noted supermodel/eyebrow possessor/Taylor Swift friend Cara Delevingne. Pop ubersongstress Rihanna. More than the lineup for the greatest night of drunken debauchery of all time, these five disparate souls have...
Luc Besson is assembling a rather interesting cast for Valerian, his ambitious sci-fi epic based on a French graphic novel series. In addition to Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne and Rihanna (seriously), the film has just acquired Ethan Hawke. While the actor definitely has plenty of sci-fi on his resume, it’s kind of surprising he hasn’t appeared in a Besson film just yet, since it seems right up his alley.
The trend of major movies rebooting as TV series seems to have fallen behind the current crop of revivals, but we may yet have a late entry into the former, one King Kong has nothing on. A new report says Antoine Fuqua and Jerry Bruckheimer are developing a Training Day TV series eyed for one of the major networks, albeit with a casting twist.
Regression is the new film from The Others director Alejandro Amenabar, which means we can expect something haunting, atmospheric and beautifully shot — you get a definite sense of that in the new trailer for the film, which stars Emma Watson as a young woman who accuses her father of abuse…but that accusation may indicate something far more sinister.
Director Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven (which seems to have dropped the “the” because it’s 2015 and no one has time for that) has added another actor you really like to its line-up of stars. Ethan Hawke, fresh off an Oscar nomination for Boyhood, has joined Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, and Haley Bennett in the remake of the western classic, which follows a team of gunfighters who team up to protect a small Mexican town from bandits.
The first trailer for Regression has arrived, the latest film from Academy Award winning director Alejandro Amenábar (The Others), starring Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke. Going off of the international trailer above, the director’s latest horror flick looks just as moody and atmospheric as previous outings, with the added unnerving element of some sinister cult activity.
This week sees the release of ‘Jupiter Ascending,’ the latest sci-fi adventure from Andy and Lana Wachowski. And while in all likelihood ‘Jupiter Ascending’ will not go down in history as one of the great works of its genre, the occasion of a new sci-fi epic from two of the modern masters of the form seemed like a good time to assess and celebrate the recent highlights of science fiction cinema, which has taken audiences from the furthest reaches of the cosmos to the deepest recesses of the human mind.
Not long ago we brought you the trailer for ‘Cymbeline,’ the upcoming dark ‘n gritty contemporary take on the William Shakespeare play of the same name—well, not anymore. ‘Cymbeline’ has been given the new title ‘Anarchy,’ which doesn’t really scream “Shakespeare,” though it does sound like a pretty cool title if you’re living on the edge in high school in 1996.
