Pas de bol pour Shane Falco autrefois espoir n°1 du football professionnel et maintenant poursuivi par la poisse. Et puis, contre toute attente, une grève des joueurs vide les terrains de football. Les Washington Redskins risquent une fois de plus de finir bons derniers. Chance : l’entraîneur Jimmy McGinty devient l’homme de la situation et surtout la grève tourne en faveur de Shane et d’une poignée de joueurs étrangers ou inconnus. Ces nouveaux remplaçants, dont un lutteur sumo, un policier déjanté, un joueur de soccer européen et deux jumeaux gigantesques, mettent la foule en délire par leur jeu hors du commun et leur excellent esprit d’équipe
Great news today for Keanu Reeves fans! Maitland Primrose Group has acquired North American Distribution rights for the Keanu Reeves project, “Henry’s Crime.” The film also co-stars Vera Farmiga, Janes Caan, Fisher Stevens and Judy Greer. Here are the deets from Deadline.com Henry’s Crime made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival. The romantic comedy stars Reeves as an ambition-less toll collector wrongly accused of a bank robbery in Buffalo. In prinson, he finds a street smart friend and cellmate (Caan), who becomes his partner in a real crime after they are released. No word yet as to when we could expect to see the Malcolm Venville directed film on the Big Screen but this is at least a step in the right direction.
The Hollywood hunk has made a name for himself after appearing in blockbusters such as Speed, The Matrix and the Bill & Ted movies. He enjoys everything about his career, and can’t imagine ever doing anything else.
Keanu is amazed by how much the industry has changed since he first started out, and is especially struck by the fact that many young stars now don’t audition for parts.
“I auditioned for Something’s Gotta Give five times. I don’t mind auditioning. I run into situations with young actors where agents don’t want them to audition because they don’t want their actors or actresses to not get the job,” he said. “But that’s rejection. And [auditioning] itself is a creative endeavour. I’m trying, I’m trying to ‘hustle and rustle’, is what I call it.”
The 46-year-old says the best thing about having a lengthy career is he can now be selective about the parts he takes. He only appears in features he is passionate about, and often uses his own cash to run them.
“I just try to put myself in positions where I can finance films,” he told the British edition of Elle magazine. “I want to create work for myself and others.”
Carl Rinsch (The Gift) has vacated the director’s chair on the ‘Logan’s Run’ remake in order to helm ’47 Ronin’ starring Keanu Reeves in a retelling of the Japanese legend.
Ridley Scott protege (and future son-in-law?) Carl Rinsch was set to direct the remake of Logan’s Run for Warner Bros., with 28 Days Later screenwriter Alex Garland already at work on a script.
Now, according to Heat Vision, Rinsch is no longer attached to the Logan’s Run remake, due to conflict with another project he has on his slate: Universal’s adaptation of the popular Japanese legend, 47 Ronin.
