Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are returning to HBO after over 10 years to continue their Project Greenlight series.

Project Greenlight, for the uninitiated, is a competition seeking the best independent screenplay and following every step of a movie's creation – from casting to set design to filming to editing.

In 2001, over 7,000 screenplays were considered before Pete Jones' Stolen Summer won. The film went on to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and a limited theatrical release. The second season, in 2003, split the competition between writing and directing. The result was The Battle...

Plus having worked with the likes of Renny Harlin, Walter Hill, David Nutter, Bill Condon and even Frank Darabont (three times no less!) has s...

Shia LaBeouf: A Former Disney Star Who Is Bucking The Trend

June 23rd, 2009 10:12am EDT
Shia LaBeouf
Shia LaBeouf is an interesting young Hollywood star because unlike a variety of former Disney stars, he's managed to slide his way into the adult acting world with very few bad moves.

Born to an interesting family in California, his mother a ballerina/designer and his father a former mime, his name means "Gift from God" in Hebrew and is often mispronounced by fans and critics alike (it's SHY-uh). Shia started acting as a child, starting in "Caroline in the City," but he became famous for playing Louis Stevens in the Disney show "Even Stevens."

This success came rather quickly for Shi...

Why Some Horror Trilogies Work When Others Don't

October 15th, 2008 10:12am EDT
Scream
Randy (Jamie Kennedy) from Wes Craven's Scream once said that in trilogies "all bets are off." Since a series has a clear-cut end when it is deemed a trilogy, certain characters-- even the leads-- don't have to be kept alive for countless resurrections down the road, which basically gives the filmmakers free range to do whatever they want.

Unfortunately, though, this often just leaves the filmmakers trying to one-up themselves with each subsequent installment, creating superfluous, and often inane, twists tha...

Fall 2006 Movie Preview: Horror Films

August 17th, 2006 4:00pm EDT
The Wicker Man
Fall officially begins Sept. 22, but The Wicker Man (Sept. 1) deserves a spot on the list of upcoming creepy movies. In this remake, a young child has gone missing and it's up to a kindly but haunted sheriff (Nicolas Cage) to travel to the remote island community where she was last seen and solve the lingering mystery of her disappearance. The sheriff’s investigation is repeatedly stalled by the highly secretive, neo-pagan community that inhabits the island, and he soon discovers that there are still some cultures that refuse to play by the rules of modern society.

In The Covenant (Se...
