Filming begins on Magic Mike XXL

Filming begins on Magic Mike XXL

 

Cameras have begun to roll on striper sequel Magic Mike XXL, with Steven Soderbergh tweeting the first image of a clapper board from the first day of second-unit filming.

The clapper board credits one “Peter Andrews” as the camera operator, which is a pseudonym for Soderbergh himself, with the director of the first film assuming cinematography duties this time around.

He’ll be replaced in the big chair by Gregory Jacobs, with principle photography set to begin on the film in the next month or so, when star Channing Tatum has finished touring Foxcatcher across the festival circuit.

The full cast list has yet to receive any official confirmation, but Tatum has claimed that the majority of the first film’s major players will return for the second outing, with the plot described as a kind of road movie.

With Tatum having collaborated on the script with co-writer Reid Carolin, Magic Mike XXL will open in the US on 1 July 2015, before arriving in the UK on 7 August 2015.

New Star Wars Rebels short debuts online

New Star Wars Rebels short debuts online

Animated series Star Wars Rebels has released a new short online, introducing audiences to the character of Ezra Bridger.

Voiced by Taylor Gray, Bridger comes off like a classic Disney hero, with a quick wit and anti-authority streak that’s more than a little reminiscent of Aladdin.

In this new short, our hero discovers a downed TIE Fighter, and sets about liberating some of the on-board tech, while keeping the bemused pilot distracted…

Take a look at the new short, below…

Set some fourteen years after the events of Revenge Of The Sith, the new series will follow the establishment of a fledgling rebellion, as the Empire looks to consolidate its power by hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights.

Featuring the voices of Freddie Prinze Jr., David Oyelowo and Jason Isaacs, Star Wars Rebels will air in the US in October, with a UK date yet to be confirmed.

Stan Lee says Black Panther movie is still happening

Stan Lee says Black Panther movie is still happening

Stan Lee has been speaking about Marvel Studios’ ongoing plans, and has suggested that a Black Panther movie is still in development.

A native of the fictional African nation of Wakanada, Black Panther was famously the first black superhero in mainstream American comics, and boasts the usual array of super-strength, agility, speed and intelligence.

The fact that Joss Whedon has filmed some Avengers: Age Of Ultron scenes in South Africa has lead some to speculate that the Panther might be cropping up in a cameo role, but according to Lee, a solo film is still very much on the agenda.

“Eventually, all the superheroes are going to have their own movies,” revealed Lee. “They are already working on Ant-Man, Dr. Strange and the Black Panther and there are others I am not allowed to talk about.”

With Marvel having films mapped out until 2019, it certainly seems plausible that Black Panther would be somewhere on the list. And if Lee is to be believed, it sounds as though it’s more a case of when than if.

In the meantime, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for a cameo, when Avengers: Age Of Ultron opens in the UK on 24 April 2015.

Game Of Thrones swordsman signs on for Star Wars: Episode VII

Game Of Thrones swordsman signs on for Star Wars: Episode VII

Star Wars: Episode VII has added a sword-fighting expert to its ranks in the form of Game Of Thrones star, Miltos Yerolemou.

Yerolemou played the Braavosi swordsman Syrio Forel in the first series of the HBO smash, the teacher who schools Arya Stark in the art of wielding steel.

Yerolemou has also played swordsmen in a number of other projects, so it’s probably not too much of a stretch to assume he’ll be picking up a lightsaber in J.J. Abrams’ forthcoming film.

The actor becomes the second Game Of Thrones alumnus to join the cast, with Gwendoline Christie, perhaps better known as Brienne of Tarth, already on board.

Directed by Abrams and co-starring Harrison Ford, Adam Driver and Lupita Nyong’o, Star Wars: Episode VII will open in the UK on 18 December 2015.

Rumour: 24 movie still alive?

Rumour: 24 movie still alive?

The notion of a 24 movie has been kicking around for years now, but it may not be dead just yet, with reports emerging that there are still plans afoot to bring Jack Bauer to the big screen.

According to TV Line, Imagine Entertainment are exploring a new idea for a movie, with Chairman Brian Grazer said to be particularly keen to bring the plan to fruition.

Talk of a film had initially surfaced back in 2010, as soon as the main series finished, with the likes of Tony Scott and Antoine Fuqua linked to the director’s chair.

As it turned out, that film never materialised, but the respectable ratings and decent reviews recently enjoyed by 12-episode revival, 24: Live Another Day, have suggested there is still an appetite for Bauer’s exploits.

Imagine have yet to officially pitch to Fox, so its very early days on this one, but there is still hope that 24 might finally make it to cinemas. Terrorists beware… Bauer isn’t done just yet.

Wesley Snipes returning to Blade franchise?

Wesley Snipes returning to Blade franchise?

New Line’s planned revival of the Blade franchise could be about to receive a massive boost, with reports claiming that Wesley Snipes is set to agree a return to the series’ title role.

According to The Daily News, Snipes is close to agreeing a return to the vampire-filled action saga, continuing the actor’s comeback following his two-and-a-half-year spell in prison.

Having recently appeared in The Expendables 3, Snipes is keen to reestablish his action credentials, even if at 51 years of age, he would certainly be on the older end of the superhero spectrum.

“I’d love to get back in the suit again and do some things I’ve learned how to do now that I didn’t know how to do then,” said Snipes in an interview with MTV earlier this year. “I think we’re better at making that kind of a film now.”

“Some of the things we did in the early parts of the franchise were experimental and now they’ve become customary in a lot of the Avengers films and other comic book adaptations.”

Nothing has been confirmed as yet, but it certainly sounds as though Snipes is ready to don the famous trench coat for one more go-around…

New TV spot lands for Big Hero 6: watch now

Big Hero 6 has released a new TV spot to coincide with the end of the school holidays, in which cuddly robot Baymax offers a word of comfort to returning pupils (and teachers) everywhere.

“You will be alright,” intones the robot, soothingly. “There, there”. We’d imagine there are more than a few people who could do with hearing that this week!

Meanwhile, there are a couple of new snippets of footage in the ultra-brief spot, including Baymax’s adorable attempts to get to grips with a football…

Take a look at the new spot, below…

The new film will follow the adventures of teen inventor Hiro Hamada, who will join forces with Baymax and a host of fellow wannabe crime-fighters in an attempt to thwart the plans of a criminal organisation…

Liam Neeson would reprise Ra’s al Ghul role “in a heartbeat”

Liam Neeson would reprise Ra’s al Ghul role “in a heartbeat”

Liam Neeson has been discussing the part of Ra’s al Ghul, newly announced as the primary villain in the next series of Arrow, and would be open to reprising the role should the chance come his way.

No official casting has been announced as yet, but when Neeson was asked by MTV whether he would consider it, the star was unequivocal in his enthusiasm…

“No, I haven’t, I haven’t at all,” said Neeson, when asked whether he had been contacted by the show. “I would, in a heartbeat, if it came my way, yeah, very much so.”

And even if the call doesn’t come, Neeson still has some advice for whoever does end up playing the role…

“They have to believe in their philosophy,” he explains. “Ra’s al Ghul absolutely believed what he was doing was ultimately saving civilization, and it was quite a good argument he comes up with.”

“Throughout the ages this fraternity, that brought the plague to wipe out a section of mankind because it needed to be regenerated again… very dangerous, but you have to believe it.”

Somebody at the studio needs to give Neeson a call, stat…
