Coming off of a 14-year hiatus, the beloved Portokalos family getting back together on the big screen for another Greek wedding celebration in My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. Writer/actress Nia Vardalos (Connie and Carla, I Hate Valentine’s Day) returned to write the new film and reprise her role of Toula under the direction of Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee, Everybody’s Fine). Carrying over from the original film are actors John Corbett (Raising Helen, Street Kings), Michael Constantine (The Hustler, Room 222), Lainie Kazan (You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, Pixels), Andrea Martin (Wholly Moses, Soup for One), Gia Carides (The Spy Who Shagged Me, Year One), and Joey Fatone (Long Shot, The Opposite Sex). The original film received high praise from fans and critics, but didn’t really end in a way that would merit a sequel. Then again, Zoolander didn’t really merit a sequel after 15 years either, but we just suffered through the unimpressive Zoolander 2 last month, so all we can say for Greek Wedding 2 is that it doesn’t ruin a good thing like Zoolander did. The trailer is available here on MADE. Be sure to see all the big family theatrics on the big screen this weekend. Enjoy!

Director Ridley Scott is currently getting his next epic adventure ready for release this December. Exodus: Gods and Kings is a modern adaptation of the biblical epic of Moses and his struggle to free the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. The film stars Christian Bale in the role of Moses and Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul as Joshua, Moses’ brother, from a script by Bill Collage, Adam Cooper, and Steven Zaillian. With production almost complete, fans have been anxious to hear about which project director Scott will push for release next. It seems that project is going to be the follow up to 2012’s Alien prequel, Prometheus, which despite the outstanding visual effects, cinematography, and set design, was as a whole really disappointing. Now that we know there will be a follow up to Prometheus, I think we’re all hoping for a more original approach to the story this time. The original Alien was a perfect mix of terror, suspense, and original story telling, so hopefully that equation will find it’s way to this next installment.
Breaking Bad not only made Bryan Cranston a huge star, it also introduced Hollywood to the talents of his costar Aaron Paul. Paul won 2 Emmys and was nominated for a total of 4 for his role as Jesse Pinkman, Walter White’s young associate and former student. Since the series finale he has received a lot of offers for various roles from many A-list names. He is currently working on Ridley Scott’s upcoming biblical epic Exodus, in which Paul plays the role of Joshua, the apprentice to Moses (Christian Bale) who played a big role in the exodus of the Jews from Egypt. Exodus is scheduled to come out next December, but before that Paul will be seen in 3 movies throughout the course of the year. The comedy/drama from director Pascal Chaumeil, A Long Way Down, will costar Toni Collette and Rosamund Pike, as well as writer/director Kat Candler’s drama Hellion, in which Paul plays a father who must clean up his act in order to regain custody of his son. Paul will also appear in the action-packed street racing drama Need For Speed, which is being directed by Scott Waugh (Bruce Almighty, Last of the Mohicans) and is scheduled to come out in March. You can watch the new trailer for the movie right here on MADE. For more news on Aaron Paul, just stay tuned; I doubt it will be difficult to hear some news regarding his career over the course of the new year.
With the final season of Breaking Bad winding down on AMC, Emmy award winner Aaron Paul is moving on to bigger and better projects! Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton have taken the lead roles as Moses and Ramses in Ridley Scott’s upcoming epic Exodus, and now Aaron Paul will be joining the cast, along with A-listers Sigourney Weaver, John Turturro, and Sir Ben Kingsley. Paul is slated to play Joshua, the young Hebrew who is given the task of leading the people into the Promised Land by Moses. Turturro and Weaver have been given the roles of Ramses parents, while Kingsley has thus far been been rumored to be playing a Hebrew scholar. Scott’s next film, The Counselor, will be hitting theaters this October, and also has a star-studded cast including Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, and Javier Bardem. Be sure to stay caught up with the final season of Breaking Bad, Sunday nights at 9/8c on AMC.
Ridley Scott has been making ground-breaking blockbusters and cinematic icons for the last forty years. Going as far back as Alien, his catalogue has grown to include such classics as Thelma and Louise, Gladiator, Matchstick Men, Black Hawk Down, American Gangster, and Robin Hood. The director has also been nominated for three Academy Awards for Best Director for Thelma and Louise, Gladiator, and Black Hawk Down. With The Counselor hitting theaters this fall, Scott will now be looking to future projects, beginning with an adaptation of the Biblical story Exodus, which could potentially begin shooting right around the time of The Counselor‘s release.
Recent news has reported that Joel Edgerton will be taking the role of Ramses opposite Christian Bale, who has the lead role of Moses. Despite the fact that the Exodus story has been told time and again, perhaps most famously by Charlton Heston in The Ten Commandments, a fresh, dramatic take on the story could be just the thing for a director like Ridley Scott. This would also be a huge career push for both Joel Edgerton and Christian Bale, whose most recent and famous role has been as Batman in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Bale is currently facing huge rumors revolving around a $50 million offer to play Batman in the next Man of Steel movie, but this is all just wild speculation considering neither Bale or the studios have confirmed anything. Fans of Scott will be counting on a good delivery, especially since Prometheus didn’t meet well with audiences last year. A sequel for Prometheus is in the early production stages, but for now Scott’s more pressing matter will be getting this Moses project (which has been floating around since 2009) off of the shelves and onto the screen. The Counselor is set to hit theaters October 25th.
