‘Hercules’ Rounds Out Cast With Major Additions


Posted at March 25, 2013 by

It’s a been a long while since we last heard from any major casting additions after Dwayne Johnson was selected to be the titular hero in Brett Ratner’s Hercules. Look no further than the sage faces of Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes and more as the latest to join the mythological blockbuster film from MGM-Paramount.

Strange Ideas: Jim Carrey & Adam Sandler Woo-ed For ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, Dwayne Johnson To Become ‘Teddy Bear’


Posted at January 24, 2013 by

We’re serious, this is not some kind of early April Fool’s Joke: Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler are being courted to join Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy and Dwayne Johnson is producing and possibly starring in the movie adaptation of Teddy Bear, based on the drawing on DeviantArt. Yes, that DeviantArt. Both are “cute” ideas, but someone please pinch me.

Dwayne Johnson and Brett Ratner Labouring For ‘Hercules’


Posted at November 9, 2012 by

Unfortunately, no, it isn’t a remake of the 1997 Disney classic Hercules. Nor is it a reboot of the legendary 1995 television series Hercules: The Legendary Journey starring the great Kevin Sorbo. This Hercules is instead based off the comic book series Hercules: The Thracian Wars, which stars Dwayne Johnson as the demi-god who “trains the Thracian army into one that excels in its ruthlessness.” Still, try as Brett Ratner might, Disney’s incarnation will always be the best…

Michael Bay’s ‘Pain & Gain’ Teaser Poster Wants to Pump YOU Up!


Posted at September 20, 2012 by

Beefy beefcakes in the world of body building live by a simple motto, No Pain No Gain. By that rationale, pain equals gain and so we come to Michael Bay’s new film. So far we’ve seen Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson cooking a severed hand, which most might not consider the most appetizing image. With that in mind this first teaser poster for the film features a jar of  chocolate flavoured protein powder that is sure to PUMP YOU UP for the film. Better?

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson In Consideration for DC Comic’s ‘Lobo’


Posted at July 17, 2012 by

In an interesting bit of Hollywood trivia, it turns out that Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, is interested in playing DC comic’s fringe character Lobo. Lobo, known to fanboys as a Hells Angel crossed with Kiss’ biggest fan, is an alien, the last of his kind, who has clashed with every major DC hero, from Superman to Batman.

Don’t Smell What The Rock Is Cooking in Michael Bay’s ‘Pain & Gain’


Posted at April 27, 2012 by

Well, this is just plain old creepy if you ask me. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has been spied on the set of Michael Bay’s meathead/lunkhead film (when isn’t Bay making a film cranked on testosterone) in Pain and Gain. Check out the photo below.

Emma Roberts in ‘Empire State’ With Liam Hemsworth & Dwayne Johnson


Posted at March 13, 2012 by

I’ll be the first to admit that I noticed Emma Roberts in Scream 4. She definitely owned the camp/narrative switcheroo for her character and kind of made sense for her to become [SPOILER] the first noticeable “me generation” serial killer in the film. Now Roberts has been cast alongside Liam Hemsworth and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in Dito Montiel’s heist film Empire State.
