‘Furious 9’ Bringing Back Justin Lin and Jordana Brewster
Ya boy Vin Diesel is back on that breaking news beat. In a new “secret” Facebook livestream, your number one source for all things Vin Diesel revealed that two key members of the Fast and Furious fam are returning for the ninth installment in the series: Director Justin Lin (who previously helmed the fourth, fifth and sixth films) and Jordana Brewster (who hasn’t appeared in the series since Furious 7’s farewell to Paul Walker).

Nothing piques my interest quite like a feature-length film based on a documentary. It’s something of a rare occurrence in Hollywood  —  movies that begin their lives as documentaries aren’t commercially successful enough to encourage further adaptation  —  but rare doesn’t mean impossible. A quick Google search will reveal plenty of documentary adaptations, including Man on a Wire and Grey Gardens, that went onto some semblance of success with critics and audiences alike. Every now and then, you come across a story so strange  —  so absolutely overwhelming  —  that you simply have to bring it to the screen a second time.

Columbia Pictures Last week, news broke that Fox would be adapting its sorta-but-not-really popular Behind Enemy Lines movie series for television, and countless people  —  myself included  —  wondered aloud if Hollywood needed to cool it with the small screen adaptations of middling action movies. Not to be outdone, CBS announced today that it would be moving forward with a similar adaptation, this time bringing the sorta-but-not-really 2003 movie S.W.A.T. to television.

It’s a fun treat when directors you admire get hired to direct really cool-looking commercials. Spike Jonze’s fragrance ad featuring an acrobatic Margaret Qualley went viral last year. Neill Blomkamp has a whole series of commercials detailing the exploits of Clive Owen’s mysterious “Driver,” a man hired for his getaway car skills who just so happens to drive a fancy-schmancy BMW. Now, Justin Lin, whom you might know best from the Fast & Furious movies, has joined the fray with a futuristic and yet realistic commercial for a company called Arconic inspired by The Jetsons.
