“Twilight” star Kellan Lutz braved an impossible traffic jam, sweaty subways and rabid mobs to make it to an interview at NBC studios.

The 31-year-old silver screen stud was spotted emerging from a subway stop in Midtown and rushing to 30 Rock where eager fans were shocked to see him on foot outside the show’s studio last week.

“He was stuck in traffic on W. 20th St. with the show already started. Lutz jumped out of his SUV and went underground to catch the subway,” said a source who saw the star spring into action in Chelsea after he realized the ride to Midtown was going to be unbearable.

Lutz ditched his ride on W. 20th St. and dashed uptown to W. 23rd St., where he jumped onto the R train and rode it to 49th St. The movie star emerged from the subway just north of Times Square, where tourists recognized him immediately.

“Fans were screaming — literally screaming — as soon as he hit Times Square,” said one witness. We’re told that Lutz was “sweaty” when he came out of the train.

“He was two avenues from the studio and kind of speed-walking, but everyone kept trying to stop him for selfies,” said one onlooker. “He would stop and give them quick hugs and he kept telling them he had to go.”

‘Masters of the Universe’ movie reboot: Kellan Lutz leads the race to play He-Man; script being polished

Posted by admin with No Comments

Kellan Lutz is leading the race to play He-Man in the upcoming “Masters of the Universe” reboot. McG talked about considering the actor for the role and confirmed that they have held discussions with him, but no decision has been taken yet with regards to the casting.

In an interview with IGN, McG said that he likes Lutz very much. He said that they are looking for a “talented entertainer” but also pointed out that the role of He-Man needs the actor to have “a certain physicality” in addition to talent. So, the muscular Lutz is being considered for the role “very, very closely.”

During the meeting with the executives Lutz displayed his passion for the character and his deep knowledge about the franchise. McG said that he was “charmed” by the actor’s “focus and intensity.” However, the movie hasn’t moved to the casting phase yet and there is still a lot of ground work that is left to be done.

McG said that there is going to be a “big meeting” with Sony regarding the preparations for “Masters of the Universe” reboot. The script is currently being polished and McG teased that the plot will not be entirely based in Eternia. Earth is mentioned, but will not be featured in the movie.

Posted by admin with No Comments

According to Movie News Guide, aside from Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham, who will be reprising their roles as Barney Ross and Lee Christmas, former 007 agent Pierce Brosman has also signed on to join the testosterone-packed action movie.

Hulk Hogan and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have also expressed openness to be part of the movie but Johnson, in an interview, has said that he would rather play a villain than part of Sly’s band of ragtag mercenaries.
[…]
There are also talks that another WWE superstar “Stone Cold” Steve Austin is being tapped for a role in the franchise, reported Christian Post Entertainment. The wrestler has earlier appeared in the first movie as one of Eric Robert’s underlings but the character did not die and may return to the franchise should the writers decide to bring him back.

A report by KpopStarz also cited other cast rumors include boxing champion Manny Pacquiao as well as the return of Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, Harrison Ford, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren, Wesley Snipes, Ronda Rousey, Terry Crews, Jet Li, and Kellan Lutz.

“The Expendables” is reportedly looking to begin production this year to release the movie by 2017. As with previous films, it has earmarked a budget of $100 million for the ensemble action film.

Posted by admin with No Comments

“The Expendables 4” was originally planned to be released this year, but it will instead be screened in 2017 because of the recent changes in cast members.

In the past, the movie franchise consistently released a new installment every two years, but it seems “The Expendables 4” will be an exception. The action film’s release date will be moved to 2017 to accommodate new cast members including wrestling icon Hulk Hogan, according to the Master Herald.

Sylvester Stallone, who produces, directs, and stars in “The Expendables 4,” confirmed Hulk Hogan’s participation in the upcoming movie. A few months ago, the wrestling legend himself also revealed that he was considering playing a villain in the fourth installment of the movie franchise, the report relays.

15OctWEB-KellanLutz

An actor from the hit teen movie series The Twilight Saga was spotted in Queenstown this week.

Kellan Lutz, who played Emmett Cullen in the film series, rode with Shotover Jet on Monday.

Shotover jet-boat driver Rob Cowles told the Otago Daily Times Lutz was a pretty nice guy.

“We had a wee chat. He had his mum with him and was looking forward to going rafting after [jet-boating].

“I just asked him about what he was doing in Queenstown and [he said] he was enjoying his time in New Zealand.”

Lutz also appeared in the film Poseidon, voiced Tarzan in the 2014 animated film Tarzan and played Hercules in the 2014 The Legend of Hercules.

Lutz fired up in sci-fi thriller

Posted by admin with No Comments

From if.com.au

In his 11-year career Twilight star Kellan Lutz has played Hercules and worked with Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Harrison Ford.

But he’d never experienced anything like the highs- and challenges- of collaborating with director Shane Abbess in the futuristic sci-fi thriller SFv1.

Lutz plays Sy, a former nurse who is now a drifter with a haunted past. Sy forms an unlikely alliance with Kane (Daniel MacPherson), a lieutenant who works for off-­world military contractor Exor. In a race against time they set out to rescue Kane’s young daughter Indi (Teagan Croft) amid an impending global crisis precipitated by Exor.

“This is completely different from anything I’ve ever done; it has so much heart,” the US actor tells IF from the set in Sydney.

“I had never been part of a movie that was so emotional, with so much stress and trauma. But it’s been an unbelievable new experience. Shane is a brilliant storyteller with a strong vision who allows his actors to create their own characters.

“There is less and less risk-taking among filmmakers these days. Shane wants to create films with real substance. As the characters were originally written Sy was the angry, crazy one and Kane was easy going. As filming went on so much changed, for the better.”

Lutz first met Abbess in Los Angeles five years ago when the director was developing The 7th Day, a sci-fi film set in a spaceship, with Source Code writer Ben Ripley. (Abbess was set to direct Source Code but departed after creative differences with Jake Gyllenhaal and Duncan Jones was hired).The director wanted Lutz to play the lead. That project has yet to materialize but Lutz is still keen.

YOU could call it a new age of Aussie film- making that’s showing the rest of the industry how things can be done.

Away from the big studio sound stages, director Shane Abbess has set up his merry SFv1 family in suburban Sydney, taking over several warehouse spaces in Gladesville as they notch up the seventh of a nine-week run of filming.

“It is unlike anything I’ve ever done before,” explained Hollywood actor Kellan Lutz, most famous for his run as Emmett Cullen in the Twilight films.

“I have no idea where we are at and I love it. It feels like a studio movie without studio heads breathing down your neck. We have so much freedom to create. I’ve never been in an environment where there is no ego. It is all family here. I am blessed to be down here in Australia working with this great group of humans.”

Lutz and Daniel MacPherson star in the leading roles of Sy and Kane in the science-fiction flick set in a futuristic world in a time of interplanetary colonisation.

The boys refer to themselves by their character names and a sign at the production office entrance reads: “All cast to be referred to by their character name only in all circumstances”.

“He’s in my phone as Sy,” laughed MacPherson. “When this is all done and wrapped, we are going to have a beer and a chat and get to know each other as Dan and Kellan because it’s been Sy and Kane for the past 2½ months.”

IT’S a blossoming bromance between Twilight hunk Kellan Lutz and Aussie actor Daniel MacPherson on set of new Australian sci-fi flick, SFv1.

Confidential exclusively caught up with the pair on set of the Shane Abbess directed film that’s currently in production in Sydney and will also shoot in outback South Australia.

“We have a great time off camera just hanging out and pow wowing,” Lutz said of MacPherson. “He’s a really cool dude and acting wise, he’s got amazing chops.”

The feeling is mutual with Macpherson adding: “He’s the all American boy. We’ve got shared passions for things like exercise and football so there will be a bit of that and also plenty of food and drink and good restaurants and whatnot to show him around.”

The pair will have to be careful not to enjoy too much food as the film requires them to be super fit.

“The thing is we don’t want to get too soft, we’ve got to stay hard and focused on this job.”

SFv1 is set in the future “in a time of interplanetary colonisation” where mysterious Sy (Lutz) meets Kane (MacPherson), a lieutenant working for off-world military contractors.

Lutz, most famous for playing Emmett Cullen in the Twilight films, has been in Australia for a fortnight for the film that also stars Rachel Griffiths, Temuera Morrison and Firass Dirani.

“I’ve been trying to work here for a long time,” Lutz said.

“A lot of Australians come to the United States to work but for me Sydney, Australia, Melbourne, the Gold Coast, they’ve got a special place in my heart. It means so much for me to be here and to be a part of this production.”
