I Know What You Did Last Summer
Because it's been nearly a decade since the last cheapo direct-to-video I Know What You Did Last Summer sequel -- and because America just can't get enough of nubile young things in white tank tops being pursued by homicidal maniacs -- Sony has apparently hit the reboot button on the formerly Jennifer Love Hewitt-led franchise, snaring the creative team behind this year's horror hit Oculus to re-adapt the 1973 Lois Duncan book that started it all.

TIFF Review: Antoine Fuqua’s ‘The Equalizer’ Starring Denzel Washington, Chloe Grace Moretz & Marton Csokas An unfazed tough guy walking away from an massive explosion in slow motion, it’s a tipping point reached long ago—this sequence has become a well-worn cliché in the visual vocabulary of pop culture even beyond cinema. Hell, it’s even been celebrated and mocked by the Lonely Island Guys in song. So it’s perhaps both a testament and symbol of Antoine Fuqua’s fortunate/unfortunate filmmaking modus operandi that the director not only embraces the hackneyed sequence, but also attempts to top it and create the most gloriously excessive walking-away-from-explosions scene ever made.

Josh Trank Replaced As Director Of Sony's SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS Sony Pictures have turned to Andrés Muschietti (Mama) to direct the highly anticipated big screen adaptation of Shadow of the Colossus. No reason has been given for Trank's departure from the project, but you have to imagine that it has something to do with him helming one of Disney and Lucasfilm's Star Wars spin-off movies (and possibly even a sequel to The Fantastic Four).

New 'The Equalizer' Trailer: Denzel Washington Talks About Ernest Hemingway, Kills Everyone The new trailer for 'The Equalizer' essentially doubles down on what the other trailers have only hinted at: this movie is all about taking weird pleasure in watching a remarkably calm Denzel Washington kill off the Russian mob. It looks nothing like the TV show it's supposedly based on, but it does look like it'll fall right in line with the bulk of Washington's modern filmography. Once again, he plays the coolest guy in the room and once again, he's a good enough actor to make it all look oh-so-easy. Continue reading…

Robert Langdon
The big screen adaptation of Dan Brown's Inferno is shooting next April, Deadline has learned. Tom Hanks will be back to play Robert Langdon, and Ron Howard will also return to direct. Set mainly in Italy and Istanbul, Inferno is the fourth book in Brown's Langdon series in which our intrepid symbologist is trying to stop the unleashing of a plague that would wipe out most of the world's population.

“It sort of exploded out,” filmmaker David Ayer said about his latest film. “I wrote it for me.” Ayer’s kept largely inside the domain of police films thus far ("S.W.A.T.," "Street Kings," "End Of Watch"), but for his next trick, he’s taking on a WWII drama starring Brad Pitt. And if you think "so what? Pitt’s already done a WWII movie with Quentin Tarantino" (“Inglourious Basterds”), note that Ayer’s “Fury” sounds vastly different. What’s the film like?

Denzel Washington Out for Justice in First TV Spot for 'The Equalizer' "There comes a point where you have to help people who can't help themselves." Denzel Washington is back protecting the good people again as The Equalizer, but it doesn't seem to be something he's excited about in this extended TV spot for the action thriller from director Antoine Fuqua. It looks like we're going to get a good threatening monologue from Washington at some point, and that's always great. Plus, if you look carefully, I'm pretty sure Washington smashes a shot glass into someone's eye socket in this TV spot.
