Movie News Around The Web: A Million Ways to Die in the West, M. Night Shyamalan, and More

As the day is slowly winding down to a close, I figured (as always) that it’d be nice to inform you in the interesting and somewhat odd happenings that are going on with movies lately.

So, without further ado, here are your movie news from around the web:

M. Night Shymalamadingdong Shyamalan is still making movies.


I don’t even know.


In all serious (not really, but I’ll try), Shyamalan is reportedly reuniting with actor Bruce Willis to film the upcoming movie A Labor of Love. It’ll be the first time in twelve years that two work on a film together, their last collaboration being the tragically underrated Unbreakable.

A Labor of Love is supposed to be based off a screenplay that Shyamalan sold back in the ’90s (before his The Sixth Sense and eventual Lady in the Water days). According to Screen Crush, it’s supposed to follow “a quiet bookstore owner who decides to walk from New York to California to honor the memory of his recently deceased wife”.

Only time will tell if the world decides to give Shyamalan yet. another. chance. to redeem himself.

Personally, I wouldn’t. After After Earth, I am f*cking done. Actually, I was f*cking done after he decided to sh*t all over my childhood with his blasphemous adaptation of The Last Airbender. F*ck him.

Billy Bob Thorton is apparently joining the upcoming Entourage movie.

Real talk: I don’t even know much about Entourage. As a result, I don’t know whether this is good or bad news and therefore, I cannot make any snarky comments about this particular piece of news.

Sorry, folks.

However, I can say that according to The Hollywood Reporter, Thorton will be playing “a billionaire cowboy turned film financier who puts up money for the Dracula movie and sends his 20-something son to L.A. to keep an eye on his investment”.

Though nobody asked for it, Taken 3 is happening and Forest Whitaker may be along for the ride.

I do not understand.

As much as most of us want to pretend that we didn’t know this was happening, we can’t. But, on a more serious (read: professional) note, the powers that be behind the Taken franchise (can we even call it a franchise yet?) are eyeing Forest Whitaker for a possible role in the film.

While no one knows who the hell he will be playing, most are betting on the fact that he might be playing some sort of villain. Other than that, Liam Neeson is also set to return and so is his on-screen daughter, Maggie Grace. You know, because someone has to be kidnapped.

Oh, come on. I just had to say that. It was, like, the perfect set up. #Sorrynotsorry

The Purge 2 is now officially The Purge: Anarchy.

Contrary to recent reports that the forthcoming sequel to The Purge would just simply be called The Purge 2, it was recently revealed that the film would be called The Purge: Anarchy.


On top of that, the film was just recently rated and an official trailer should be hitting the web fairly soon. Actor Zach Gilford also took the time to reveal a few details about the plot:

“With the sequel, I thought they had a really great way to do a sequel because the first one took place in an upscale suburb with what happens to a family there when their security system doesn’t work. With this one, there’s none of the same characters, but it’s the same day of the year and it takes place in the city where there are no security systems and it’s just like a war zone where people are just trying to survive. So I thought it was pretty interesting to take that concept and to look at it from a different angle” (Shock Till You Drop).

A Million Ways to Die in the West rolls out eight new posters.

That’s right.

For those of you who really, really loved Seth MacFarlane’s directorial debut, Ted, (i.e. me), the man has yet another treat for you. Not only is his follow-up, A Million Ways to Die in the West, hitting theaters near you really soon, but Universal Pictures also decided to unveil eight new posters to promote the movie.

Aww yiss.

The posters feature members of the film’s all-star cast along with some nice, old-timey captions that make for a good laugh. You can check them out for yourself below:

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Sausage Party beefs up its voice cast.


That pun was so intended.

Oh look, another pun. You’re welcome.

Anyways, Sausage Party, an upcoming, animated feature, just recently added a few more people to its voice cast. Such stars include the aforementioned Rogen and This is the End stars David Krumholtz, James Franco, Michael Cera, and Jonah Hill. Additionally, Krisen Wiig (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), Edward Norton (Birdman), and Nick Kroll (A Good Old Fashion Orgy) will be lending their voices as well.
