Chloe Moretz Says Piracy Means 'Kick-Ass 3' Probably Won't Happen

Chloe Moretz

Gifted young actress Chloe Grace Moretz has been making the publicity rounds for her latest tearjerking drama If I Stay, and that means she's been fielding questions about projects other than the current one she's promoting. And considering most of the general population knows he as the foul-mouthed, ass-kicking Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass and last year's underwhelming sequel, she was inevitably asked about Kick-Ass 3. However, rather than being hopeful about the possibility of another film in the R-rated comic book franchise, she pretty much shot down any hopes fans might have of seeing her suit up again. More below!

Tyler Perry Didn't Know Who David Fincher Was, Hypes Up 'Gone Girl'

Tyler Perry

Most of the time, people who are lucky enough to work in Hollywood are so busy with their own projects that they don't have time to keep up with what's happening outside of their own professional bubble. That means actors, writers, directors and more aren't quite as knowledgeable as to what's happening with other films, sometimes not even being aware of one another's work. However, when it comes to a director like Tyler Perry mentioning in an interview with Vulture that he didn't know who David Fincher (director of The Social Network and Se7en) was before signing on for a role in Gone Girl, that seems a little ridiculous.

'A Good Day to Die Hard' Director to Helm 'I.T.' with Pierce Brosnan

Pierce Brosnan

Audiences will see Pierce Brosnan get back into action mode this weekend with The November Man (and there's already a sequel on the way), but that's not the only action he'll be seeing on the big screen. The former James Bond is set to star in I.T., another thriller set up at Voltage Films with A Good Day to Die Hard helmer John Moore attached to direct. But it sounds like there won't quite be as much action as either of their recent projects since the story follows Brosnan as a publisher whose relationship with a young I.T. consultant sours, causing the young man to use technology to threaten his family, business and life.

Ron Howard & Tom Hanks Finally Making Dan Brown's 'Inferno' Next

Tom Hanks & Ron Howard / Inferno

Over a year ago, news surfaced that Sony Pictures was going to round up director Ron Howard and star Tom Hanks to adapt Dan Brown's novel Inferno, the latest book in the series featuring symbologist Robert Langdon. Hanks played the character who gets caught up in action and adventure, like an upscale Indiana Jones, in both The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, and while there's a third book that hasn't been turned into a film, The Lost Symbol, the studio is just marching onward with Inferno, a story which finds our hero suddenly waking up in an Italian hospital with amnesia. Did you see Fonzie jump that shark?

Lionsgate to Release Schwarzenegger Zombie Film 'Maggie' Next Year

Maggie

It was set to premiere at TIFF, but not anymore. Lionsgate has announced that in a "preemptive deal prior to the start" of TIFF, they've acquired the release rights to Maggie, an "apocalyptic thriller" (read: zombie movie) starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin and Joely Richardson. The film was set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival late in the fest next month, but with an early 2015 release planned, they've decided to pull it from the fest (the film's original listing is now gone). Whether this upsets you or not, the good news is that it will still be released in theaters... eventually. Some photos from the film below.

Ridley Scott Updates 'Blade Runner' & 'Prometheus' Sequels' Status

Ridley Scott

This December, we'll see if Ridley Scott can finally deliver another great film by returning to the sword and sandal tale of Exodus: Gods and Kings (the trailer had impressive visuals, but felt a bit artificial otherwise). But he's got plenty of other projects on his future slate to keep him busy. The director's next film has been confirmed to be the sci-fi drama The Martian starring Matt Damon, but many are wondering when he'll get around to directing the developing sequels to his classic Blade Runner and the Alien prequel Prometheus. Well, Scott gave a brief update on the status of both sequels, giving us a vague timetable.

The Maze Runner

In a little over three weeks, 20th Century Fox brings their hopeful new young adult sci-fi franchise to the big screen in the form of The Maze Runner, directed by Wes Ball and based on James Dashner's novel of the same name.

Chris Hemsworth & Charlie Day Taking a 'Vacation' with Ed Helms

Chris Hemsworth

After being delayed back in the spring of 2013 due to creative differences, it sounds like New Line's reboot of Vacation, the classic comedy starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo, is finally back on track. Ed Helms is still leading the film with a script from Horrible Bosses writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, and the two are also making their directorial debut on the film as well. And now THR has news of two more cast members joining, one of them surprising and the other not. Horrible Bosses co-star Charlie Day is taking a role, but so is Marvel's Thor franchise star Chris Hemsworth. Read on!

Ellen Burstyn Still Going Strong, Now Set to Direct & Lead 'Bathing Flo'

Ellen Burstyn

Since beginning a career in on-screen entertainment in 1958, Ellen Burstyn has earned herself an Emmy, an Oscar and a Tony, and already has a legacy that speaks for itself. But she's not content with retirement just yet as Deadline reports she has just signed on to make her feature directorial debut in a film that she will also star in called Bathing Flo, a character piece inspired by events in the actual life of Thruline Entertainment manager/producer Danny Sherman. The story is set in New York, following a man looking for a place to live, who ends up house-sitting for a man in a home occupied by the resident's mother, Flo.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead Cast in Dan Trachtenberg's Sci-Fi 'Valencia'

Mary Elizabeth Winstead

This sounds just about perfect. We've been following the development of filmmaking Dan Trachtenberg ever since his short Portal: No Escape blew up online a few years back. He's been attached to Y: The Last Man and a few other projects, but is now focused on developing a movie called Valencia, a secret micro-budget sci-fi story in development at Bad Robot set mostly in an underground cellar of sorts. Variety is now reporting that Trachtenberg has cast Mary Elizabeth Winstead to star in the film, which will also feature John Goodman (what - awesome?!) in the cast. I'm so glad this project is starting to actually come together.

Jeremy Renner Maybe Popping Up as Hawkeye in 'Captain America 3'

Jeremy Renner

Since Scarlett Johansson had a pretty meaty part in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as her S.H.I.E.L.D. agent character Natasha Romanoff (aka Black Wid0w), is there a chance that Jeremy Renner will get the chance to do the same with his character Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye) in Captain America 3? Well, it certainly sounds like Marvel has some kind of plan for the bow and arrow expert to pop up in the sequel. Speaking with Collider, Renner said, "There are rumblings of Captain America 3. I don't know what's going to happen there. I've got to find the time, man. I'm trying to stay home and I can't." Read on!

Matthew McConaughey Up for Stephen King's 'The Stand' and 'Gold'

Matthew McConaughey

Following a stellar Oscar-winning performance last year in Dallas Buyers Club and a turn on television in "True Detective" that could end up with him taking home a trophy at the Emmy awards tonight on NBC, Matthew McConaughey is wanted and desired for a couple developing projects. First up, Deadline reports Warner Bros. is very interested in landing the actor for a pivotal role in Josh Boone's adaptation of Stephen King's The Stand. It would be a particularly juicy role as Randall Flagg, the film's villain described as the personification of evil, a demonic figure wreaking havoc after a plague has killed most of humanity.

Actor & Director Richard Attenborough Has Passed Away at Age 90

Richard Attenborough

We've lost another. We're sad to report that the great Richard Attenborough has passed away in England today at the age of 90. While most may recognize him from Jurassic Park or Ghandi, Attenborough has an extensive and illustrious career that spans multiple decades. He won two Oscars, for Best Director and Best Picture, in 1983 for Ghandi, the biopic that introduced us to Ben Kingsley. He was made a Knight Bachelor in 1976, won BAFTA's Best British Film for his C.S. Lewis biopic Shadowlands in 1993, and was BAFTA's Best British Actor in 1965 for both Guns at Batasi and Seance on a Wet Afternoon. A true big screen legend.

Steve Martin & Disney Up to New Tricks with 'Magic Camp' Comedy

Steve Martin

Fans of Steven Martin may recall that the comedian and actor has a history with Disney in more ways than one. Martin has starred in Shopgirl (which he also wrote), Bringing Down the House and two Father of the Bride films (a third has been rumored but debunked by the actor himself), all from Touchstone Pictures, which can be found under the Disney banner. But decades ago, before he got famous, Martin actually worked at the Magic Shop at Disneyland, and even performed magic in his early comedy career. And now he'll get his magical groove back as THR reports he will lead the family comedy Magic Camp.
