Guardians of the Galaxy was almost the biggest movie of 2014. But it was first usurped by The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, with both movies being knocked off that perch in 2015 by American Sniper. None the less, it was a surprise hit for Marvel and Disney, with many considering the film a huge risk. That risk paid off, and a sequel is currently in preproduction right now. It will follow the team as Star-Lord also searches for his real dad. Earlier this month, we heard that Marvel and director James Gunn want one actor in particular to play Peter Quill's pops. And that's Kurt Russell. The actor has since confirmed this to be true. But there is a catch.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will bring back the original team, which includes Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Vin Diesel as Groot, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, and Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer. Pom Klementieff is the only new actor yet signed onto the project. It is expected that she will play Mantis in the anticipated sequel. Michael Rooker is confirmed to return as Yondu. So, what do you think? Will Kurt Russell like the original enough to sign on for the sequel? We sure hope so? Because who would make a more perfect dad?Read More
In just a few short months, director James Gunn will start production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Aside from returning stars Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Dave Bautista (Drax the Destroyer), Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon) and Vin Diesel (Groot), the only new cast member to come aboard so far is Pom Klementieff, who is rumored to be playing Mantis. Today we have a new report from The Wrap, which claims that Marvel is eyeing Kurt Russell for the pivotal role of Star-Lord's father.
In last year's Guardians of the Galaxy, we learned that Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord was taken from Earth by Yondu (Michael Rooker), as part of a deal with Peter's mysterious father. Instead of living up to his end of the deal, Yondu ended up raising young Peter with his Ravagers, revealing at the end of the movie that Peter's father' was an 'a--hole.' Director James Gunn has confirmed that fans will learn the identity of Peter's father in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and that he won't be the same character from the Marvel Comics, J'son.Read More
Plain and simple. Kurt Russell hates sex scenes. Not watching them so much as doing them. And as any fan knows, there are very few in his vast resume of work. Have you ever wondered why such a captivating and well loved leading man has never dived into the sheets as much as some of his contemporaries? Well, he finally has our answer.
Acting is lying. But it's not faking. At least not to Kurt Russell. When you're in front of the camera, there are a lot of things you can actually, physically do to get into character. Unless you are starring in a porno or experimental art film, sex if not one of them. And that has always bothered the legendary force behind such classics as Escape From New York and Big Trouble in Little China. While he had no problem convincing you that he belonged in these outlandish, fictional worlds, he does have a problem faking it in the bedroom.Read More
After Dwayne Johnson said that he wants to have John Carpenter involved in the remake, the director said he was "ambivalent" about the project, but added that he may sign on, depending on how much he is paid. He did state that he hasn't been officially contacted by Dwayne Johnson or anyone else involved in the remake, so we'll have to wait and see what happens. As for Kurt Russell, he is expected to reunite with Dwayne Johnson on Universal's Fast & Furious 8, which is slated for release in 2017. What do you think about these new details? Do you think Kurt Russell should be involved in the Big Trouble in Little China remake?
Big Trouble in Little China comes to theaters in 2017.Read More
Following the first trailer that arrived last week, RLJ Entertainment has released five character posters for Bone Tomahawk, arriving in theaters October 23. These one-sheets feature Kurt Russell as Sheriff Franklin Hunt, Patrick Wilson as Arthur O'Dwyer, Richard Jenkins as Chicory, Matthew Fox as John Brooder and Lili Simmons as Samantha O'Dwyer. These characters are all part of a small town that bands together in the face of tragedy.
When a group of cannibal savages kidnap settlers from the small town of Bright Hope, an unlikely team of gunslingers, led by Sheriff Franklin Hunt (Kurt Russell), sets out to bring them home. But their enemy is more ruthless than anyone could have imagined, putting their mission - and survival itself - in serious jeopardy. This is a gritty action-packed thriller chronicling a terrifying rescue mission in the Old West. This film will actually be the first of two Westerns for Kurt Russell this year, with The Hateful Eight hitting theaters on Christmas Day.Read More
John Carpenter revealed in an online interview last week that he is 'fine' with the remake as he did not write the original script. 'No harm, no foul.' He remarked, so it's not likely that he will be coming on to collaborate on the screenplay, which already has Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class) signed to pen the script. No director is attached yet, but it's not likely that John Carpenter will sign on in that capacity either. He hasn't directed a movie since 2010's The Ward. He did serve as a producer on the 2005 remake of his movie The Fog, so it's most likely that he will be asked to serve as an executive producer if nothing else.
Dwayne Johnson and Kurt Russell share the screen right now in the blockbuster hit sequel Furious 7. Do you think they discussed the remake on the set of that movie? Do you think Dwayne Johnson may be headed down the right path with this remake? Or is it clearly a really bad idea? Let us know know your thoughts in the comments section! Hopefully a director will be announced soon.Read More
