Following rumors that Luke Evans had been offered the villain role in The Fast and the Furious 6 (a.k.a. Fast Six) after Jason Statham passed on the opportunity, we now have confirmation that the former UK actor is currently in negotiations to join Gina Carano (and possibly David Tennant – ?) as a new addition to the lucrative street racing franchise.
Series staples like Vin Diesel and Paul Walker will be returning for the sixth F&F flick, along with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez, among others.
Variety has the scoop on Evans, who the site says is up to play the head of a crew attempting to pull off the same heist job (in Europe) as the intrepid Fast and the Furious gang. Other than that vague logline, little has ...

[DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU ARE UP TO DATE ON FRINGE SEASON 4]
Coming off last week’s shocking episode of Fringe, where we saw a team member go down, this week’s season 4 finale is set to take the series to a whole new level of bizarre – with more mad scientists, Observers and, if you believe the trailer (below), dinosaurs?
In last weeks’e episode of Fringe - which is the first of two installments for the finale – it was surprisingly revealed that William Bell (Leonard Nimoy) is still alive. Even more surprising than the sheer knowledge of Bell’s existence was the fact that Leonard Nimoy actually reprised the role in person. With Bell (potentially) killing a fan-favorite character on the series, while also revealing to be puppet master behind David Robert Jones, the battle has been set for the Fringe season 4 Finale.
For fans of Castle, the season 4 finale saw the long-awaited (and highly-anticipated) coupling of Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic). But what exactly is going to happen next year? And should fans be worried about their favorite series taking on television’s dreaded relationship challenge?
Speaking with TV Guide and E! Online, series creator Andrew W. Marlowe discusses the difficulty of bringing two main characters together; the hit Castle took in order for that relationship to occur; how they’re going to make sure that Castle and Beckett’s relationship doesn’t become another television cliché; how long we’ll have to wait to see Cole Maddox (Tahmoh Penikett) again, and so much more.
Touching upon Castle and Beckett’s relationship, Marlowe admits that there really wasn’t any ...

Screen Rant owner Vic Holtreman originally founded this site with the intention of providing readers with a middle-ground/average person perspective on movie news and reviews – hence our old mantra “movie and TV news without the sugar coating.” While the site has certainly evolved – we now cover a wider range of genres and provide readers with a variety of diverse “voices” – our willingness to champion both entertaining and/or artistic movies (at least on a case by case basis) hasn’t changed.
Which is why we (Vic and myself) jumped at the chance to participate in Film School Reject‘s recent article the “10 Greatest Movies of All Time (According to the Internet).” Now the results are in.
The original idea (read the full FSR list), drummed-up by the host of their ...
