X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Deadpool: Ryan Reynolds is set to reprise his X-Men Origins: Wolverine role (above) as the title character in Marvel's Deadpool, which is now scheduled for release on February 12, 2016. But what's a modern superhero without a comic sidekick? Standup-comic-turned-actor T.J. Miller (Transformers: Age of Extinction) is in early talks to play "an additional comic voice to compliment [sic] Deadpool." Ed Skrein (TV's The Transporter Legacy) may also be joining the cast; it's speculated he might be a villain. [The Wrap]


Run All Night

Run All Night: Liam Neeson stars in the upcoming action-thriller Run All Night, and the first official photos show him in action in underground and outdoor shots. He plays a hit man known as "The Gravedigger" whose son (Joel Kinnaman) witnesses a mob murder; it's up to Neeson to protect him. Ed Harris and Vincent D'Onofrio also star; the movie opens in theaters on April 17. [USA Today]

Taken 3

The Escapist: Meanwhile, Liam Neeson (above in Taken 3, which opens on Friday) has just set his next action-filled project. The Escapist is a remake of the 2009 original, which starred Brian Cox as "an inmate [serving] a life sentence who stages a prison break… so that he can see his sick daughter." Sean O'Keefe has been hired to write a new script. [Collider]


Accidental Love

Accidental Love Trailer: The first trailer for the nutty-looking comedy Accidental Love stars Jessica Biel as a woman who enlists the help of congressman Jake Gyllenhall after she suffers an accident, gets a nail in her head, and starts acting very, very strangely. Stephen Greene is credited as director, although David O. Russell helmed the project, then titled Nailed, nearly to completion back in 2008. It's heading to U.K. theaters on February 10.
