Less than two weeks ago, X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler-Donner provided an update on the status of X-Men Origins: Deadpool, reiterating what we heard from Ryan Reynolds about the film having a stellar script, one that’s R-Rated. She indicated the Reynolds was still on board and that the film’s story would entirely ignore that of the character’s awful introduction in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
There are two things holding back the realization of what may be a proper adaptation of the Deadpool character from Marvel Comics: Green Lantern and a lack of a director. One of those problems just got solved.
During press interviews at WonderCon, Ryan Reynolds was frequently asked about the status Deadpool and whether or not Green Lantern and potential sequel duties would prevent his involvement. Sure enough, he sounded dedicated and ...

Screen Rant’s Kofi Outlaw Reviews Hanna
The classic princess fairytale is currently being thoroughly deconstructed and reassembled for the modern movie audience, and so far the results have been a mix of spot-on modern sensibility (Tangled) or, more often, a spotty patchwork of undercooked ideas (Alice In Wonderland, Red Riding Hood, Sucker Punch).
Out of this struggle to find a new way to spin the “damsel in distress” tale comes Hanna, director Joe Wright’s (Atonement) unique vision of the fairytale princess reinvented as Jason Bourne.

As a result, Arthur is still a timeless classic that, in spite of the aging look of the film stock, manages to tell a modern story of true love – albeit a silly one. In this remake Warner Bros. and director Jason Winer have attempted to refresh Arthur’s story for a new generation, hiring ...
