Mel Gibson in Talks to Direct Andrew Garfield in WWII Film

President Harry Truman awards the Medal of Honor to Army PFC Desmond Doss.

Mel Gibson is in talks to direct Andrew Garfield in the World War II drama Hacksaw Ridge. Garfield would play real-life war hero Army Private First Class Desmond T. Doss , who was drafted in 1942 and won the Congressional Medal of Honor for his work as a medic, even though he refused for religious reasons to bear arms. The Hollywood Reporter said the movie has been in development for more than 13 years and was at one point titled The CO. Gibson's We Were Soldiers director Randall Wallace was originally set to helm it. If a deal can be worked out soon, cameras should be rolling on the p... more

Movie Review: ‘Rosewater’

Kim Bodnia, left, and Gael Garcia Bernal in a scene from the film "Rosewater."

You can take the man away from the humor. But you clearly can't always take the humor from the man. This gratifying principle proves true both for the Iranian-born Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari , who was imprisoned for 118 days in Tehran and accused of being a spy, and of Jon Stewart , who captures Bahari's harrowing tale in "Rosewater," a clear-headed, sensitive and thoroughly impressive directorial debut for the Comedy Central host. Bahari and Stewart, it's clear, share a sense that humor has a place even in the darkest circumstances — that it can soothe and even salvage the human spir... more

Movie Review: ‘Beyond the Lights’

Nate Parker and Gugu Mbatha-Raw star in "Beyond the Lights."

Those perpetually looking, usually in vain, for non-teenage love stories at the movies have two good (and very different) options this week: "The Theory of Everything," about the marriage of Stephen and Jane Hawking , and the light-years-away "Beyond the Lights," a well-told and well-cast tale of fictional British R&B singer Noni Jean  (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) and the handsome L.A. cop Kaz ( Nate Parker ) with whom she falls in love. Before you start thinking "The Bodyguard," note that this film is from writer/director Gina Prince-Bythewood , who showed us years ago in "Love and Basketball" that she has a knack for creating... more

Aniston Ready for a 3rd 'Horrible Bosses' Movie

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jennifer Aniston said she pushed her sex-crazed dentist character as far as she could in in "Horrible Bosses 2," but she's willing to try again in a third installment. Asked if another sequel is in the works, the actress replied, "I don't know," she said. "It's up to you all." "Horrible Bosses 2," the follow-up to the 2011 hit, opens Nov. 24. It stars Jason Bateman , Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day as amateur entrepreneurs who get caught up in a kidnapping scheme when their business deal with a conniving investor, played by Christolph Waltz, goes awry. The actors impro... more

Reconnecting With 'The Shawshank Redemption'

Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman in "The Shawshank Redemption"

Some films, such as the Oscar-winning 1939 Civil War epic "Gone With the Wind," resonate with audiences on release, but others, such as Frank Capra's 1946 yuletide tale "It's a Wonderful Life," take time to become part of the cultural lexicon. In that latter category is "The Shawshank Redemption," which languished at the box office in fall 1994. It became enormously popular on home video and cable after receiving seven Oscar nominations, including best film, lead actor for Morgan Freeman and adapted screenplay for director Frank Darabont . On Tuesday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and... more
