Milla Jovovich reveals Resident Evil 5 plot and casting
Milla Jovovich has been busy on Twitter. The Resident Evil 5 actress has been updating her fans - and therefore the world - about what to expect from the fifth videogame movie.
Resident Evil: Retribution is currently shooting in Canada and if Jovovich is to be believed writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson is making good on his promise to incorporate fan-feedback into the project.
The full panel line up has now been posted for New York Comic Con and Marvel Studios will be showing off new footage from The Avengers.
The screening takes place on Saturday 15 October from 6.30-7.30pm in the IGN Theater and includes some “special surprise guests”.
Hopefully the surprise won’t be that they’re not Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson or Stellan Skarsgård.
Hugh Jackman on training with Sugar Ray Leonard for Real Steel
When you’re shooting a film about a former boxer teaching a robot fighting machine his tricks of the trade, how do you add the right level of rock ‘em and sock ‘em to both the star and his bot?
If you’re Real Steel director Shawn Levy you turn to a pro to help make those moves authentic.
“Shawn said to me, ‘I really want to bring someone in for you that’s going to help you out. How do you feel about Sugar Ray Leonard?’ And I was like, ‘Sure, why don’t we just go for the best?’” Jackman says with a grin.
Christina Hendricks says she’d like to play Wonder Woman
Director Nicolas Winding Refn has been tentatively attached to a Wonder Woman movie for some time now, and he previously stated that he’d like to have his Drive actress Christina Hendricks in the lead role.
Thankfully, it appears she’d be up for the role too, as she revealed when talking to Vulture recently.
When she was asked if she would be up for starring in Wonder Woman for Winding Refn, she said, “I think he is such an extraordinary and exceptional director, that if he asked me to do it, I would do it in a heartbeat.”
In August Dan Aykroyd predicted that Ghostbusters 3 would be going into production in 2012 (joy!) but it seems actress Sigourney Weaver doesn’t share his optimism (pain!) and has cast doubt on the whole project.
“I have yet to read the script,” the actress who played Dana Barrett in the first two Ghostbusters films told Coming Soon.
