Twilight Gets a Gender Swap in Stephenie Meyers' New Book Life and Death

Stephenie Meyer swaps character genders in the Twilight 10th Anniversary Edition

Forget “Team Edward” or “Team Jacob,” today it’s all about “Team Edythe” and “Team Julie.” That’s right, in honor of the phenomenally popular “Twilight” novels celebrating their 10th Anniversary, author Stephenie Meyer has announced that the new edition of her first book will include a 400-page bonus feature titled Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined, in which she switches the sexes of her protagonists to provide readers a fresh perspective.

“I wanted to do something fun for the 10th anniversary and the publisher wanted, like, a foreword and I thought, ‘Well, maybe something more interesting,'” Meyer told “Good Morning America” (via Yahoo).

This new version is told through the point-of-ciew of Beau, the male equivalent of Bella Swan, the heroine made famous by Kristen Stewart in the five blockbuster feature films in The Twilight Saga. Although her four books in the series have sold 150 million copies, many fans had written to Meyer concerned that Bella was nothing more than a damsel in distress.

“It’s always bothered me a little bit because anyone surrounded by superheroes is going to be…in distress. We don’t have the powers,” Meyer said. “I thought, ‘What if we switched it around a bit and see how a boy does,’ and, you know, it’s about the same. The further you get in, the more it changes because the personalities get a little bit different, but it starts out very similar and really, it really is the same story because it’s just a love story and it doesn’t matter who’s the boy and who’s the girl, it still works out.”

 With the new version hitting book stores today, fans can order the Tenth Anniversary Edition of “Twilight” right here!

Speaking with Beats 1 (via Complex), Will Smith revealed that he never met the real Jared Leto, just The Joker.

“[Suicide Squad] is insane. I’ve never actually met Jared Leto. We worked together for 6 months and we’ve never exchanged a word outside of ‘Action!’ and ‘Cut!’ I literally have not met him yet. So, the first time I see him will be ‘Hey, Jared. What’s up?’ He was all in on the Joker.”

Suicide Squad also stars Joel Kinnaman (RoboCopEasy Money) as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney (DivergentThe Water Diviner) as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne (Anna Karenina, upcoming Pan) as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El DIablo, Adam Beach as Slipknot, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.

The CW’s “Arrow” introduced their own version of the team in the most recent season of the series and the recent animated film, Batman: Assault on Arkham, offered another version of the team.

Furious 8 Director Looks to be Straight Outta Compton's F. Gary Gray.

Furious 8 director looks to be F. Gary Gray

Following word yesterday that the Furious 8 director frontrunners had narrowed to four names, Vin Diesel has revealed that it’s now down to one – Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray. Diesel posted the above photo of himself with Gray from their talks about the next installment in the “Fast & Furious” franchise.

The news comes just days after word broke that Diesel was pitching Universal Pictures the thought of having original The Fast and the Furious helmer Rob Cohen to direct the eighth big screen installment, or perhaps even Diesel taking it on himself. At the time, Diesel said they are looking to close out the franchise with a final trilogy. But yesterday, the list of potential Fast 8 helmers was said to be Straight Outta Compton‘s F. Gary Gray, Now You See Me‘s Louis Leterrier, The Signal‘s Will Eubank and You’re Next and The Guest‘s Adam Wingard. Diesel is a producer on the films, but he has no final say on the director.

Gray has worked before with Diesel on A Man Apart and his credits also include The Italian Job, The Negotiator and Law Abiding Citizen. His $28-million budgeted Straight Outta Compton, released by Universal, earned an impressive $160 million domestically after opening in theaters on August 14.

Diesel announced Fast 8 at this year’s CinemaCon after the unprecedented success of the seventh film, which earned $1.511 billion at the worldwide box office, and he along with Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson and Kurt Russell are expected to return, along with franchise regulars Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black reprising their roles as street racers-turned-international criminals-turned-super-secret agents. Universal Pictures will deliver Furious 8 for an April 14, 2017 release.

Ellen Page in Talks to Star in Flatliners Remake

Ellen Page in Talks to Star in Flatliners Remake.

Ellen Page in talks to star in a Flatliners remake at Sony

Ellen Page is in talks to star in a Flatliners remake at Sony Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter. Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) will direct from a screenplay by Source Code writer Ben Ripley. David Blackman and Laurence Mark are producing.

The 1990 original was directed by Joel Schumacher, written by Peter Filardi and produced by Michael Douglas and Rick Bieber. The film, starring Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon, is officially described as follows:

The Flatliners cast.At University Hospital School of Medicine, a group of ambitious medical students are about to die… and live to tell about it. Embarking on a daring and arrogant experiment, the five aim to push through the confines of life and touch the face of death.

Nelson Wright (Kiefer Sutherland), the manipulative, fame-seeking initiator of the project, has recruited Rachel Mannus (Julia Roberts), a self-made expert in the field of death; David Labraccio (Kevin Bacon), an idealistic yet pragmatic student suspended from med school; ladies’ man Joe Hurley (William Baldwin); and the brilliant yet self-absorbed Randy Steckle (Oliver Platt) to venture into a frontier that until now had been the exclusive province of religion and philosophy.

Their chilling, secret experiment to see what lies beyond life involves taking turns stopping their hearts until the monitors reading their vital signs indicate nothing but flat lines. Moments later, the other team members, armed with an array of medical equipment, step in to revive them. In their search for knowledge, however, the five discover the profound consequences of daring to tamper with immortality. Returning from their peek at the afterlife, the students bring back manifestations of their past sins, something they had not bargained for. Forced to deal with their previous transgressions here in the present, the participants learn about life as well as death.

Are you looking forward to the Flatliners remake? You can watch a trailer for the original film below.

LexCorp’s Lex Luthor Sits Down with Fortune Magazine

by Silas Lesnick

Lexcorp's Lex Luthor sits down with Fortune Magazine for a viral interview tied to next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, hitting theaters in 2016.

Fortune Magazine publishes an exclusive interview with LexCorp’s 31-year-old CEO, Lex Luthor

It’s a busy day for fiction as, on the heels of both a Pepsi Perfect commercial and a Jaws 19 trailer, Fortune Magazine has published an exclusive interview with LexCorp CEO Lex Luthor. Described by the outlet as “a 31-year-old wunderkind who transformed an aging petrochemical and heavy machinery dinosaur into a tech darling of the Fortune 500,” Luthor was also recently named Fortune’s Businessperson of the Year.

“Dad named the company after himself ten years before I made my unexpected entrance into his life,” Luthor tells the outlet. “But investors seemed to respond to the idea of an adoring father building a legacy for his precious son. He used that to his advantage. It was a good shtick and, whatever else he was, he was a good businessman… He came from a country where the government, in the guise of protector, had absolute control over the citizens. That drove him. I get it. Heck, I’d hate to see that sort of thing happen over here.”

Luthor also discusses LexCorp’s rivalries with both Wayne Enterprises and Kord Industries with the magazine suggesting that part of the reason for LexCorp’s recent advances is their willingness to develop military technology.

“It’s a necessity,” Luthor explains. “We live in the most dangerous point of time in all of human history. Statistically speaking, it’s a near certainty that another world-changing crisis is hurtling toward us like a speeding bullet. We have to be ready to defend ourselves. No civilization was ever conquered by having a strong military… [But] It’s not a competition. Besides, I can’t hold a candle to those guys in the debauched billionaire playboy department!”

Also highlighted briefly in the article is the fact that Luthor owns a “world-famous” collection of meteorite crystals and that LexCorp has something very, very big in the works.

“It’s about safety,” Luthor continues. “This is a product that will protect you, and everyone, from threats you don’t even know about yet. I don’t want to scare anybody… much. But there are a lot of threats out there, and they’re here today.”

Check back for updates on LexCorp as they become available. To check out the interview in its entirety, click the LexCorp logo below. Also, be sure to follow Lex Luthor on Twitter.

Four Directors at the Starting Line for Fast 8

by Silas Lesnick

Who will be the Fast and Furious 8 director?

F. Gary Gray, Louis Leterrier and Adam Wingard are all being eyed to potentially helm Fast 8

It was just days ago that word broke that the original The Fast and the Furious helmer Rob Cohen might be called back to direct the eighth big screen installment, tentatively titled Fast 8. Today, Variety has an update reporting that, while four names are currently in contention for the Fast 8 directing job, Rob Cohen is not one of them. According to the trade, the current list of potential Fast 8 helmers includes Straight Outta Compton‘s F. Gary Gray, Now You See Me‘s Louis Leterrier, The Signal‘s Will Eubank and You’re Next and The Guest‘s Adam Wingard.

“There has always been the desire by Paul to have Rob direct one more,” franchise leading man Vin Diesel recently posted to his Facebook page, ” This is what fueled my campaign… I believe that he can and would reset the franchise nicely, returning to what was the core of the film in the beginning… racing. He would also handle the Brian O’connor issue with integrity, given that he and David Ayer were the ones who initially created that beloved character in the first place. Ultimately we all want the best film to honor what we have created and what you the audience has adopted as your favorite franchise.”

Diesel announced Fast 8 at this year’s CinemaCon after the unprecedented success of the seventh film, which earned $1.511 billion at the worldwide box office, and he along with Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson and Kurt Russell are expected to return, along with franchise regulars Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black reprising their roles as street racers-turned-international criminals-turned-super-secret agents. Universal Pictures will deliver Furious 8 for an April 14, 2017 release.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is already set to star Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, Jenn Murray and newcomer Faith Wood-Blagrove.

Rowling; Steve Kloves, who scripted all but one of the Harry Potter films; and Lionel Wigram, who served as an executive producer on the last four installments of the franchise.

Collateral Beauty Movie: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon Exits the Director’s Chair

by Max Evry

Collateral Beauty Movie: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon Exits the Director's Chair.

Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon has exited the Collateral Beauty movie

After losing Rooney Mara in September, as well as a game of leading man musical chairs that saw Hugh Jackman exit and Johnny Depp courted, the Collateral Beauty movie looked all set to roll this fall with Will Smith starring and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon signed to helm. Now the troubled project has hit another snag as Deadline reports that Gomez-Rejon has exited the picture over creative differences with studio New Line Cinema, which picked up the film last month.

This marks the second major director walk-off on a recent New Line project after filmmaker Cary Fukunaga bailed on his adaptation of Stephen King’s IT after working on the project for several years, also due to clashes with the studio shortly after they acquired IT. Fukunaga was swiftly replaced by Andrés Muschietti, although there is no word on who might take over Collateral Beauty, especially given the poor luck it has already suffered.

The film, set to co-star Jason Segel, centers on a New York advertising executive (Smith) who experiences a deep personal tragedy. His colleagues devise an unconventional plan to break him out of his depression — which works — but not in a way that anyone imagined.

The PalmStar Media and Likely Story project is produced by Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar and Bard Dorros, along with Allan Loeb, who wrote the script. Palmstar CEO Kevin Frakes will executive produce with Anthony Bregman of Likely Story and Steven Pearl. Smith’s Overbrook will co-produce.

Filming on the Collateral Beauty movie was expected to start this month.

Hood then segued to Illumination Entertainment, where he added his talents to Despicable Me 2 and the recent worldwide box office hit Minions.

Groove Tails is set in the world of competitive street dance competitions… for mice that is. This is a place where cheese is currency and dance is king. The story follows Biggz, as he tries to regain his confidence for dance, pay off his debt to a club, clean up the streets from the alley cats and win the love of a girl. Life is not easy when you are at the bottom of the food chain.

“As one of the most multidimensional and accomplished entertainers of our generation, everything about Jamie, including his voice, is immediately recognizable to audiences worldwide,” says Iervolino. “There is no actor better suited to lead this movie than Jamie and we’re thrilled to be partnered with him and Michael Becker on this project. We are all vested in bringing something very special to the big screen together.”

“Jamie’s unparalleled talents are at the forefront of this heartwarming, family-friendly comedy,” adds Bacardi. “His animated nature lends itself perfectly to Biggz’s character and his acumen as a producer is as finely tuned as any in the business. We’re excited to move forward with this fun tale.”

Groove Tails is an AMBI Group presentation of an AMBI and Imprint Entertainment production. All animation and production for Groove Tails will be done by AMBI’s AIC Studios in Toronto. AIC Studios is the first authentic studio model to operate in Canada, fully integrating financing, production, post-production, visual effects, animation & distribution of feature films, television programs and animated series.

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter author Seth Grahame-Smith has been tapped to write and direct Warner Bros. upcoming The Flash movie! The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have written a treatment for the film, which they were considering to direct, but have since been tapped for the upcoming Han Solo movie from Disney and Lucasfilm.

Grahame-Smith has previously written the screenplays for Dark ShadowsBeetlejuice 2, and the upcoming The LEGO Batman Movie. The film would mark his feature directorial debut, having previously directed two episodes of his short-lived TV series “The Hard Times of RJ Berger.”

Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About KevinThe Perks of Being a Wallflower) will star as the titular hero in the upcoming film, which is set for release on March 3, 2018.

George Miller Confirms Two More Mad Max Sequels Are in Development

George Miller Confirms Two More Mad Max Sequels Are In Development

George Miller talks development of two Mad Max sequels

Though it may not have lit the global box office on fire, bringing in just over $370 million worldwide, Mad Max: Fury Road captured the attention of fans around the globe and went on to become one of the highest-rated blockbusters of the summer. Talks of Mad Max sequels have permeated ever since, and speaking with Top Gear, director George Miller confirmed that two more scripts have already been written.

“This film [Fury Road] was green lit three times and fell over three times over a decade. We went to shoot with Mel Gibson back in 2001, but then 9/11 happened, and the American dollar collapsed against the Australian dollar close to 30 per cent, so we lost that amount of budget overnight….We were then rained out of Australia. The desert rained for the first time in 15 years, and we ended up in South West Africa, Namibia. But in this process, we had dug down deep into the backstory, not only of the characters, but of every vehicle. How the steering wheels became religious artifacts and things like that. So we ended up with two scripts, without really trying. We’re talking to the studio [Warner Bros] about it as we speak, but which one of the two stories will happen next, I’m not so sure.”

Miller went on to reiterate, however, that he would like to do a small movie next with limited special effects and no stunts, the same reason he cited he wouldn’t direct a Man of Steel follow-up.

“Fury Road” arrived in theaters thirty years after the third film in the series, Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. Hopefully we won’t have to wait that long for the next legend of the Road Warrior. The film starred Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Jesse Eisenberg Continues to Tease Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman

by Spencer Perry

Jesse Eisenberg Continues to Tease Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman.

Lex Luthor ‘feels like a real scary person’

Despite the intense secrecy surrounding Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, co-star Jesse Eisenberg has been very open about what to expect from the film and his portrayal of Lex Luthor. Speaking with Vulture this time, the actor talked about the breadth of material about the character available and how they’re turning some of it on its head.

“There is this trove of stuff about this guy. A lot of it’s repetitive, like he always winds up on the roof of his building giving some faux benevolent talk about how he’s going to change the city,” he said. “It’s fun to take that campy cartoony stuff and try to put it into a real person and try to reconcile the two.”

Eisenberg went on squash any comparisons to Gene Hackman’s character in the 1978 film, saying:

“This movie is so different … it has real psychological underpinnings, and this movie character feels like a real scary person.”

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, Jeremy Irons as Alfred and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman. The film is set to open worldwide on March 25, 2016.

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Matthew McConaughey and Bryce Dallas Howard Photos from the Set of Gold.

Matthew McConaughey and Bryce Dallas Howard photos from the Gold set

Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers ClubInterstellar) and Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World, The Help) filmed Gold in New York City this weekend and we’ve got your first look from the set. Check out the Matthew McConaughey and Bryce Dallas Howard photos in the gallery below!

The film is being directed by Academy Award winner Stephen Gaghan (Syriana, Traffic). It is being produced by Teddy Schwarzman (The Imitation Game, All is Lost) for Black Bear Pictures and Michael Nozik (Syriana, The Motorcycle Diaries) for HWY61. Golden Globe nominee Edgar Ramirez (Carlos, The Bourne Ultimatum), Corey Stoll (Ant-Man, “House of Cards”), Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, RocknRolla), Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek, Capote) and Golden Globe winner Stacy Keach (American History X, Nebraska) also star.

Gold tells the story of Kenny Wells (McConaughey), a modern-day prospector, hustler, and dreamer, desperate for a lucky break. Left with few options, Wells teams up with an equally luckless geologist (Edgar Ramirez) to execute a grandiose, last-ditch effort: to find gold deep in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia. Howard will play Kay, the longtime girlfriend of McConaughey’s character, who has supported him through thick or thin, but whose capacity and loyalty are tested as the hunt for gold pushes their relationship to its breaking point.

The screenplay for Gold was written by Patrick Massett & John Zinman (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, “Friday Night Lights”), who are also serving as producers along with McConaughey. Executive producers are Paul Haggis (Crash, Million Dollar Baby), Ben Stillman, and Richard Middleton (The Artist, I Love You Phillip Morris). Key members of the production team include director of photography Robert Elswit (There Will Be Blood), production designer Maria Djurkovic (The Imitation Game), and costume designer Danny Glicker (Milk).

Gold will be distributed in the United States by TWC-Dimension and Sierra/Affinity is handling international sales for the film.

Ryan Kavanaugh-Led Investor Group to Acquire Relativity.

Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity to announce release dates for Masterminds, The Disappointments Room, Before I Wake, The Crow and Kidnap

Relativity Media today announced that a consortium of investors led by CEO and Chairman Ryan Kavanaugh (referred to as “TJ Group”) have reached an agreement to acquire all of Relativity’s assets except the Relativity Television business. The consortium will shortly file a plan of reorganization.

The transaction will create a path for Relativity to emerge from bankruptcy with a significantly fortified balance sheet and virtually no debt which positions the company for long-term growth. Kavanaugh will remain Chairman and CEO.

“My passion for Relativity is the same today as it was on the day I founded it,” commented Kavanaugh. “I want to thank our employees for their continued focus and dedication throughout the Chapter 11 process. I look forward to working with my partners and with Relativity’s executive team to build and take the company to the next level, continuing its 360 degree content engine approach at a time when content has never before been more valuable.”

Relativity expects to quickly move forward with previously-announced content projects and other business opportunities, and will in due course announce official release dates for movies including Masterminds, The Disappointments Room, Before I Wake, The Crow and Kidnap, which were postponed for release during the bankruptcy process.

As part of the transaction, Relativity has agreed to sell the television division, led by Tom Forman of Relativity, for $125 million.

The Bankruptcy Court hearing is scheduled for October 5, 2015, and the closing date of the transaction is scheduled for October 20, 2015. All entities will operate business as usual until the closing of the transactions.

Relativity will emerge post-Chapter 11 with only $30 million in debt, a significant library and its business units fully intact. The divisions include: Relativity Studios, Relativity Digital Studios, Madvine, Relativity Music, and the company’s stake in Relativity EuropaCorp Distribution, Relativity Sports, and Relativity Education. All of Relativity’s divisions will partner to create compelling original content and work closely with brands to navigate the ever-changing advertising landscape in both traditional and digital mediums.
