Posters for Jason Statham’s SAFE, Paul Walker’s VEHICLE 19, Gerard Butler’s MACHINE GUN PREACHER
by Brendan Bettinger Posted: August 15th, 2011
We’ve got three action-heavy posters tonight. First up is Safe, in which Jason Statham plays “a former elite agent who fights to rescue a 12-year-old girl (Catherine Chan).” Next up is Vehicle 19, starring and executive produced by Paul Walker. The new promo poster is accompanied by the first synopsis for the film, which identifies Walker as a recently parolee who gets into trouble with crooked cops when he picks up the wrong rental car. Last up is Machine Gun Preacher, based on the true story of Sam Childers (played by Gerard Butler), “a former drug-dealing criminal who undergoes an astonishing transformation and finds an unexpected calling as the savior of hundreds of kidnapped and orphaned children.”
Hit the jump for all three posters and more info on each project. .......... read more; http://collider.com/safe-poster-vehicle-19-poster-machine-gun-preacher/109482/
Bradley Cooper Leaves THE CROW Remake; Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum Emerge as Possible Replacements
by Jason Barr Posted: August 15th, 2011
Scheduling conflicts have reportedly forced Bradley Cooper to leave director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s (28 Weeks Later) remake of The Crow. Cooper had previously been in negotiations to reprise the late Brandon Lee’s turn as iconic gothic character Eric Draven. However, it looks as if his involvement in David O. Russell’s Silver Linings and Legendary Pictures’ Paradise Lost has cramped his schedule to the point that he has exited Relativity’s reboot of James O’Barr’s 1990s comic.
With Cooper off of the grid, it’s being reported that Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum have stepped up to the plate as potential candidates for the part. You may remember that Wahlberg was offered the role of Draven back in October 2010, when Stephen Norrington was attached to direct the remake. That offer never gained much traction and, before long, Norrington had moved on as well. As for Tatum, this is the first time his name has been associated with the role and, in all honesty, I’m hoping it is the last. Hit the jump for a little more on the potential candidates and the project as a whole.
