Oscar-winning writer/filmmaker Roger Avary (“Pulp Fiction”) has enlisted a roster of international actors for “Lucky Day,” the pulp action movie which will mark his directorial comeback.

Aladdin Gets Homeland Star as Jafar's Henchman Hakim

Aladdin Gets Homeland Star as Jafar's Henchman Hakim
Just a few weeks after we reported that The Mummy remake star Marwan Kenzari is in talks to play the villainous Jafar in Disney's Aladdin reboot, it seems the studio has also found the villain's right-hand man. Turkish actor Numan Acar is in talks to portray Hakim, who serves as the "head of the guards" for Jafar in this live-action remake. There was a guard character named Hakim, voiced by Frank Welker, in the original Aladdin movie, but it seems he will be a much more substantial character in this live-action movie.

Deadline broke the news of this casting, but their report did not include Marwan Kenzari as part of the cast, so perhaps his deal has not been finalized at this time. Numan Acar will be joined by Will Smith, who voices The Genie, Mena Massoud as the title character Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine and Nasim Pedrad as Mara,

Newswire: Ericson Core to direct Damien Chazelle’s kidnapping drama The Claim

According to Deadline, Point Break remake director Ericson Core has signed on to direct The Claim, a drama film that doesn’t sound like it would be an especially big deal if not for the fact that it was written by La La Land’s Damien Chazelle. The movie is about a father with a “criminal background” whose daughter gets kidnapped, but while trying to track her down, a different couple shows up and makes “mysterious claims” that the child actually belongs to them. That makes it sound like the other couple was probably behind the kidnapping, but maybe the daughter was taken by a third party, and the criminal dad has to fight with the mysterious couple to prove that she’s really his daughter and not theirs.

Beyond Point Break, Core also directed the sports movie Invincible and worked as a cinematographer on The Fast And The Furious

David Crow Aug 3, 2017

La La Land and Whiplash's Damien Chazelle has written a thrilled called The Claim, which will now be directed by Ericson Core...

Damien Chazelle has had one of the most interesting (and fastest) career rises in recent Hollywood memory. Only a few years ago, he worked on screenplays for horror movies like The Last Exorcism Part II (he also had a hand in 10 Cloverfield Lane), but the 32-year-old filmmaker now has an Oscar for his directing of La La Land, which followed his previous critical hit, Whiplash.

The Tao of Nicolas Cage: Gone in 60 Seconds

Before Dom was flexing his muscles Cage was getting fast and furious in order to protect his family.

This weekend movie theaters are going to be packed with hordes of people eager to check out The Fate of the Furious, the 8th film in the unexpectedly super popular Fast and Furious franchise. And that’s all fine and well. I enjoy the films; they’re dumb, stupid, exciting fun. Nothing wrong with that whatsoever, but we must remember that a year before Dom and his crew ripped off Point Break, the legendary Nicolas Cage was snatching up cars left and right and doing so in under 60 seconds.

Of course I’m going to talk about Gone in 60 Seconds.

Cage stars as the Memphis Raines, a notorious car thief that retired a number of years back in an effort to go straight. And he does. Memphis is working at a little go-kart track for kids, teaching

Producer Bill Mechanic and star Luke Bracey on making 'Hacksaw Ridge'

(l-r) Luke Bracey with Mel Gibson. (Photo credit: Mark Rogers).

It was third time lucky when Mel Gibson signed on to Hacksaw Ridge in 2014, having been offered the film by producer Bill Mechanic twice before.

.I approached Mel in 2002, in 2010, and then again in 2014, which is the first time he said yes,. says Mechanic..

.He's the only one I approached twice. I guess in my mind he was always the perfect director for it. I just had to get it in his mind that he was the perfect director for it..

Before his third attempt, Mechanic brought on Randall Wallace, who wrote Braveheart, to take a pass at the script.

.Randall's changes were not earth shattering,. says Mechanic. .He won't be credited in the final screenplay. But I think it might have made it more appealing to Mel to read [that] Randy was working on it..
