De Niro says that his CIA drama The Good Shepherd (2006) will be a trilogy.
Robert De Niro has announced plans to film a pair of sequels to his 2006 fact-based CIA drama The Good Shepherd.
Speaking at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, where he was picking up a lifetime achievement award, De Niro explained that he wanted to continue the story of legendary agency operative Edward Wilson – played by Matt Damon in the original.
“I would love to do another story from ’61 to the fall of the Berlin Wall until 1989. That is what we are talking about now. Then I’d like to do a third film from 1989 to the present. I’d like to make it a trilogy.”

Wanted is “An action packed, visually arresting comic book movie.” Wanted opens this weekend (June 27th).
Wanted, based on the graphic novel by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones, follows twentysomething Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy, doing a convincing job in hiding his Scottish accent) — an office drone who one day discovers that he is actually the son of the world’s greatest assassin. Before this revelation, Wes suffers panic attacks brought on by his overbearing boss at his soul-sucking accounting job and the blatant affair carried on between his girlfriend and best friend.
Wesley is pulled — literally and violently — out of his ho-hum everyday life by Fox (Angelina Jolie), an alluring mystery woman who tells him about his special heritage and then proceeds to save him from Cross (Thomas Kretschmann). After an absurd but exhilarating car chase-shootout sequence, Fox reveals to Wesley that he must take his father’s place in The Fraternity, an ancient league of assassins led by Sloan (Morgan Freeman). The Fraternity metes out justice as determined by the Loom of Destiny (an over-explained plot device built around murderous weavers — yeah, that’s right).
Wes then undergoes an excruciating training regimen (including beatings, guns and knives) until he accepts the Fraternity’s motto: Kill one, save a thousand. He must then carry out a few hits in order to prove his mettle before he is sent after Cross, whom we learn is a rogue member of the Fraternity out to kill his former comrades one by one. Wes gradually learns to enjoy and embrace his newfound vocation, finally feeling empowered after a lifetime of being a nobody. But soon, he learns that some of his colleagues aren’t as righteous as he first believed.

IGN visited the set for Hellboy II and the had the privilege to watch several scenes from the film, plus they checked out some cool concept art.
Last Friday, IGN UK visited a post-production house tucked away in Soho, London where filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is hard at work frantically editing his blockbuster sequel Hellboy II: The Golden Army. He graciously offered to screen several brand new sequences from the film for us, with explicit instructions to tell the world about what we saw. So here goes, though remember… although we weren’t screened anything particularly spoilerish, there’s plenty of information within. So if you want your Hellboy fresh, then click away now…
Int. Army Base, New Mexico – Night
First up, a pre-credit prologue sequence in which an 11 year-old Hellboy is in his pajamas, brushing his massive teeth. The tyke playing him — apparently in heavy prosthetics — looks freakishly similar to Ron Perlman. In steps dad, Professor Broom (played by a rakish looking John Hurt), who begins telling him the story of the titular Golden Army…

Angelina Jolie discusses playing a comic book assassin in the Wanted.
IGN Movies recently spoke exclusively with Oscar winner Angelina Jolie about her new release, the Timur Bekmambetov-directed action flick Wanted, which is based on the graphic novel created by Mark Millar.
This twisted and visceral tale follows Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy), a slacker who hates his life—with good reason, because it sucks. At work, his boss lives to torment him in front of his fellow cube-dwelling drones. Back home, his skeezy girlfriend is a sexual magnet for everyone except him, including Wes’ supposed best friend. No wonder this loser is on his 10th prescription for panic attack pills, which he downs like candy between cardboard meals of vegan tofu wraps. Wes’ pathetic excuse for an existence might just as well come to an end and save him a lifetime of prolonged misery. Fortunately for Wes, his life is over — his old one, anyway — and all because of a girl.
Enter hot Fox (Jolie), who crashes into Wes on the business end of a smoking gun. Seems Wes’ long-lost and mostly forgotten dad was killed while working for the Fraternity — a centuries-old league of supersensory trained assassins pledged to carry out the unbreakable orders of fate. Their motto: Kill one, save a thousand. Now it’s Wes’ turn to follow in his father’s footsteps and release the caged wolf that’s always lurked inside of him. Killing is in Wes’ blood, and he trains under Fox and a motley-but-lethal crew. The neophyte is forcefully pummeled into developing lightning-quick reflexes and superhuman agility. No one said becoming an assassin would be easy.

Jon Favreaur= speculates on whom might be the villain in Iron Man 2.
Although he has not yet been signed to direct the sequel, Iron Man director Jon Favreau has been blogging who fans might expect to see menace Shellhead in Iron Man 2.
In a posting at his MySpace blog, Favreau revealed that “The Mandarin is Iron Man’s nemesis and will be incorporated in the sequel. It’s true that I am apprehensive about how he is to be presented. In the tech based modern world that we created for (Iron Man), a Fu Manchu style villain with magical/alien tech rings would seem out of place.”
Favreau added, “There were early drafts of (Iron Man) where the Mandarin was the main villain, so we’ve already explored the character to some extent. I am curious to see how he has been treated in his latest books and how that might influence our direction.”
He also said, “I’ve already mentioned War Machine and Mandarin. I have some ideas, but I really need to sit down with Downey and the Marvel guys before we say much more.” And when asked about the chances of Obadiah Stane returning (SPOILER ALERT) despite his apparent death at the end of the first film, Favreau quipped, “Stane’s death? Do characters ever really die in Marvel? Isn’t it like a soap opera?”
When asked about this report that claimed the Hulk might pop up in Iron Man 2 (just as Tony Stark did in The Incredible Hulk), Favreau replied, “There are no plans to do so.”

The Incredible Hulk gets rave reviews from the folks at IGN. “It delivers and delivers well.” A must see this weekend (June 13).
“Hulk smash!” It’s incredibly (pardon the pun) important to remember that when going in to see the Marvel Studios requel of The Incredible Hulk. Sure, there’s angst — the story’s hero is cursed with a monstrous alter ego that only appears when he gets “excited” (in both good and bad ways). Sure, there’s tension — the story’s hero is constantly on the run from “Big Brother-like” forces looking to capture and exploit his beast within. But ultimately the film, much like the comic book from which it’s based, is about destruction.
Think a smaller scale Cloverfield and you’re in the right ballpark. To further hammer the point home: An introspective tale focusing on father-son issues this is not (sorry, Ang Lee).
To that end, The Incredible Hulk delivers and it delivers well. The film starts off with Dr. Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) desperately searching for a cure to the gamma radiation which has poisoned his cells and unleashed a primal force of rage within him known as The Hulk. Living in the shadows and cut off from a life with the woman he loves, Dr. Betty Ross (Liv Tyler), Bruce knows that a military machine led by General “Thunderbolt” Ross (William Hurt) is seeking to capture and brutally exploit his power. As all three grapple with the secrets that led to The Hulk’s creation (indeed, they all played a role), they are confronted with a vicious new enemy known as The Abomination — a monstrosity whose destructive strength exceeds even that of The Hulk’s. To defeat this nemesis, the film’s hero must make an agonizing choice: accept a peaceful life as Bruce Banner or find heroism in the creature he holds inside.
Much has been made about director Louis Leterrier’s decision to focus his film back on themes established in the popular 1970s live-action TV series, and that is clearly the case. In fact, the film’s opening credit sequence revisits The Hulk’s origin story mirroring the starting point established in the show — Bruce falls victim to a gamma experiment gone wrong, an attempt to tap into man’s adrenaline induced super-strength. The director even goes so far as to include cameos from former Hulk, Lou Ferrigno, and former Bruce, Bill Bixby (in a clever and cute way). But how this new approach truly benefits the film is by upping the story’s tension, not only putting its human hero constantly on the run from a determined General Ross but by also increasing the stakes surrounding each “Hulk out.” Bruce quite literally has to restart his life each time he transforms, finding himself in a strange new location (the Hulk will often leap into neighboring states or countries), in need of new clothes, and in need of a new lab to once again begin his search for a cure.
