It’s no secret that the production for Barry Sonnenfeld’s Men in Black 3 has been a troubled one (the movie is STILL filming pickups). This time around Will Smith travels back in time to 1969 in order to save a young Agent K (Josh Brolin) and avert a world-ending disaster. The only disaster is attempting to do a time travel film – on a short time frame nonetheless. Word on the street is that the screenplay was still being written as production got underway, a giant no-no if you’re going to leap from year to year. Plot holes? Yes please.
Still, I have to admit that the newly released trailer is a bit eye-catching. While it attempts to deliver on the humor (and fails completely), some of the concepts are pretty rad (especially the idea that he has to jump to time jump). Take a look inside and tell us what you think.
In theaters May 25 from Columbia Pictures, Tommy Lee Jones, Jemaine Clement, and Emma Thompson also star. READ MORE
*Hi-Res added: In theaters May 25 from Columbia Pictures is Barry Sonnenfeld’s Men in Black 3, their extremely troubled production that stars Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Jemaine Clement, Josh Brolin and Emma Thompson.
Jones has a smaller role this time around though, as the film finds Will Smith traveling back in time to 1969 in order to save a young Agent K (Josh Brolin) and avert a world-ending disaster.
Teaser posters have begun surfacing at cineplex’s around the country, and both are quite eye-catching. Check out a look at a stylized Smith and Lee Jones inside. READ MORE
With Josh Brolin now confirmed for the lead of Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy and the vultures circling Christian Bale for the villain role the question of the moment is who will play Brolin’s daughter? And sources are telling Twitch that the actress being targeted to play the character – renamed Marie in this version of the story – is Rooney Mara.
Offers have not been made, but it’s worth noting that Twitch was correct in their early scoop on Brolin’s casting.
Mara is blowing up after starring in New Line and Warners A Nightmare on Elm Street remake, and can be seen in the English version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo this December.
Back in July Twitch first reported that Mandate wanted Josh Brolin for their remake of Park Chan-wook’s 2003 Korean masterpiece, Oldboy, which will be directed by Spike Lee.
It’s official as Brolin will topline the Mandate Pictures redo, which begins production in March, reports Deadline. Brolin, who just wrapped Men in Black 3 with Will Smith, next begins work on Warner Bros’ Gangster Squad.
The new Oldboy has script adapted by Mark Protosevich, who will co-produce. Roy Lee and Doug Davison will produce via Vertigo Entertainment.
“The story centers on a man who is kidnapped on his daughter’s birthday and held for 15 years in solitary confinement without explanation. He is eventually released and sets out on a path to take revenge on those who destroyed his life.”
If Alice in Wonderland weren’t one of the most atrocious films I have ever seen, I’d probably be excited to see Tim Burton get behind the camera for his own version of the Hunchback of Notre Dame. And in all honesty, could he pick anything more obvious? I’d just wish he’d do something original again…
What makes this interesting is that Josh Brolin (Jonah Hex) is developing the “Hunchback of Notre Dame” project at Warner Bros., with the thesp starring and producing through his Brolin Productions shingle. The scripting team of Kieran and Michele Mulroney are on board to pen the screenplay, based on an idea developed by Brolin.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, other than being based on the Victor Hugo’s novel “Notre Dame de Paris” about Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer of Notre Dame, and the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda.
Hex, known for having the right side of his face disfigured and wearing a Confederate army uniform, was a rough-and-tumble gunslinger and part-time bounty hunter whose adventures always ended in blood.
Scarred bounty hunter Jonah Hex (Brolin) is charged with tracking and hunting down his oldest enemy who is preparing to unleash Hell.
Jonah Hex is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyone… and anything. Having survived death, Jonah’s violent history is steeped in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the “other side.” His only human connection is with Lila, whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. Jonah’s past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can’t refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull. But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah’s oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead.
We just got in another BD EXCLUSIVE…this time for the movie adaptation of the comic, Jonah Hex. It’s already looking pretty good with Jimmy Hayward Directing and Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex, with Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor writing.
Shooting begins in April/Early May in New Orleans and Georgia. Hit the break for the casting breakdown…

Grindhouse – noun – A downtown movie theater – in disrepair since its glory days as a movie palace of the ’30s and ’40s – known for “grinding out” non-stop double-bill programs of B-movies. From groundbreaking directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez comes the ultimate film experience: a double-bill of thrillers that will recall both filmmakers’ favorite exploitation films. “Grindhouse” will be presented as one full-length feature comprised of two individual films helmed separately by each director. Tarantino’s film, “Death Proof,” is a rip-roaring slasher flick where the killer pursues his victims with a car rather than a knife, while Rodriguez’s film explores an alien world eerily familiar to ours in “Planet Terror.” Welcome to the Grindhouse – it’ll tear you in two.
“Death Proof” stars Kurt Russell, Zoe Bell, Rosario Dawson, Vanessa Ferlito, Jordan Ladd, Rose McGowan, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, Marley Shelton, Tracie Thoms, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Michael Bacall, Eli Roth, Omar Doom; “Planet Terror” stars Freddy Rodriguez, Rose McGowan, Josh Brolin, Naveen Andrews, Marley Shelton, Michael Biehn, Stacy Ferguson, Jeff Fahey, Michael Parks
“The Dead Girl,” the new film from acclaimed writer/director Karen Moncrieff (“Blue Car”), is a quintet of stories about seemingly unrelated people whose lives converge around the murder of a young woman.
