'Jurassic World' Plot Rumors Not True Claims Vincent D'Onofrio

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Fri, 22/08/2014 - 18:17

Earlier this month, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow revealed that production has wrapped on this new adventure, which takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park. While there have been plenty of rumors regarding the story, which the filmmaker has confirmed is set on the original Jurassic Park location, Isla Nublar, star Vincent D'Onofrio revealed in a new interview that none of the rumored plot details are true.

"You know, I've seen a lot of the stories out there. None of them really have it. You have no idea what's in store. There really are a couple of, I would say more than five or six scenes in that, that are just totally iconic, like amazing."

A number of photos from the set and concept art confirm that there will be a fully-functional theme park with living dinosaurs in Jurassic World, which will reportedly include a number of new dinosaurs that haven't been seen before. However, no other story details have been confirmed at this time.

The actor also spoke about why executive producer Steven Spielberg chose Colin Trevorrow to direct this big-budget adventure, following his directorial debut, Safety Not Guaranteed.

"Basically, I think Spielberg chose him because of the end of that movie, Safety Not Guaranteed. And that movie wasn't supposed to end that way, and it was Colin's idea to end that movie that way, and I thought it was amazing. I mean, all I can say - I can't talk about story, again. These days, it's like the way Woody Allen - everybody's taking Woody Allen's approach and you're not allowed to discuss anything. Basically all I can say is that Chris Pratt has become a friend; he's an awesome guy. Colin Trevorrow is a great director. The crew on that [film] was amazing. The storyline is gonna be so different than the first few. Some of the scenes in that, just the scenes that I shot - I'm not in nearly as much as Chris is or Bryce (Dallas Howard), they're the leads in the movie - but just if I'm gonna talk about the stuff that I did, the scenes are so cool. There's real dialogue scenes in the movie and there's real, like, acting scenes in the movie, but at the same time the environment is full of dinosaurs. I mean, it's just amazing."

When pressed for more story details, Vincent D'Onofrio wouldn't delve into specifics, but he talked about his experience on the set.

"I'm legally bound not to say anything, and I also think it's more exciting not to. It's so funny because, when you're on a set like that ... it's not the same feeling you have on any other set, like, something that was created up, this world that was created by Steven Spielberg. When you're on that set, I remember the first couple days on the set it was so weird it. You see, 'oh, there's the jeep from so and so,' and [whispers] 'oh fuck, that's...oh shit!,' and everything looks so Jurassic-y. It's quite something. Then you have to realize that, you know, fuck, you know, I'm playing a real guy in a real situation, and you gotta start acting. But at first when you walk on set, like when we were shooting in Hawaii, we're on the side of this beautiful mountain, flying in helicopters and all kinds of shit. Like I said, there's an endless amount of iconic scenes in the movie that come one after another that are going to be so spectacular. You know, I think everyone is going to just love it. If they're anything, like, if the public is anything as enthusiastic as my daughter and my 14-year-old son, I think it's gonna be a huge movie then."

Stay tuned for more details regarding Jurassic World as we get closer to the June 12, 2015 release date.

Jurassic World comes to theaters June 12th, 2015 and stars Ty Simpkins, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Chris Pratt, Vincent D'Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, B.D. Wong, Omar Sy. The film is directed by Colin Trevorrow.

Batman News' source reveals that a major action sequence was shot in a Detroit studio last month, which involves Superman (Henry Cavill) and the U.S. Capitol building. Superman heads to D.C. to answer for all of the destruction he caused in Man of Steel. The site also reports that half of the American public blame Kal-El for the Metropolis destruction, since General Zod (Michael Shannon) would have never come to Earth if Superman wasn't here.

Naturally, none of this has been confirmed by Warner Bros. at this time, but are you excited to see Superman answer for destroying Metropolis? Chime in with your thoughts below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters March 25th, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.

'Star Wars 7' Will Redefine Long-Form Storytelling

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Fri, 22/08/2014 - 17:19

It's a very good time to be a Star Wars fan these days, with Star Wars: Episode VII currently in production and the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels starting its run on Disney XD later this fall. A new report from Badass Digest reveals LucasFilm and Disney are planning on tying in this show, and other materials such as the upcoming Marvel comics, into the movie canon.

Here's what an unidentified LucasFilm employee had to say in a brief statement.

"We're going to redefine longform storytelling."

The original Star Wars trilogy spawned the Expanded Universe, a massive series of novels, comic books and video games that told peripheral stories outside of the main movie franchise. We reported in April that the new trilogy will avoid the Expanded Universe story lines, which was confirmed a few days later by LucasFilm in a statement that revealed Star Wars Rebels will be a part of the movie canon, along with a new series of novels from Del Ray Books. While those who just want to follow the movies will not necessarily need to watch Star Wars Rebels or read the comic books, fans will be "rewarded" for doing so.

Are you more excited for Star Wars: Episode VII and Star Wars Rebels now? Chime in with your thoughts below.

Star Wars: Episode VII comes to theaters December 18th, 2015 and stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams.

New Kingsman Images Show Samuel L. Jackson

And Colin Firth deploys his umbrella for The Secret Service

The new issue of Empire doesn't hit shelves until next Thursday, August 28, but we have a sneak peek for you already! We have the latest on Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service, including these two rather nifty images showing Colin Firth's impeccably-dressed agent at work, and Samuel L. Jackson as the villainous Valentine. Feast your eyes. {Kingsman: The Secret Service Exclusive Images}

Says Jackson of his role, "Watching From Russia With Love, it was like, 'Oh my God, what is this?' I had never seen a film like that before in my life. I always thought of myself more as Bond than the villain. But as I got older, I realised that villains are a lot more colourful and a lot more interesting and a lot more outside the box. And the whole tongue-in-cheek Bondian aspect of the film is pretty great. It was fun to sit there and do that, using the metaphors of the Bond film."

The film stars Taron Egerton as the streetwise youngster taken under the wing of Colin Firth's super-spy, and will not be your typical spy movie. Kingsman: The Secret Service will arrive on February 12, 2015. For much more on the film, pick up the new issue of Empire, online or in shops, next Thursday.

'Jersey Boys' Producer Sets Up 'Past Due' at Warner Bros.

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Fri, 22/08/2014 - 15:37

Warner Bros. and producer Robert Lorenz are teaming up on the thriller Past Due. The studio previously collaborated with Lorenz on this year's Jersey Boys.

Robert Lorenz is the longtime producing partner of Clint Eastwood. Before Jersey Boys, the duo brought Trouble with the Curve to the screen, marking Robert Lorenz's directorial debut. Warner Bros. also bought the screenplay for Past Due for the producer to direct, but it's not yet clear if he will be taking the helm.

Thompson Evans wrote the screenplay, which wound up on the Blacklist. No story details have been shared at this time, but it is said to be a female version of A History of Violence, directed by David Cronenberg and starring Viggo Mortensen. The 2005 thriller followed a man trying to forget his violent past, but attracts unwanted attention when he thwarts a robbery.

Past Due is not set up at Clint Eastwood's Warner Bros.-based Malpaso production house. The movie will be produced through Code Entertainment with Thompson Evans's manager Rich Freeman executive producing.

Robert Lorenz has served as Clint Eastwood producer for more than a decade, receiving best picture nominations alongside the Hollywood icon for Mystic River and Letters From Iwo Jima. The two will be back on the awards scene this Christmas with American Sniper, starring Bradley Cooper.

Past Due comes to theaters in 2016.
