So basically, he’ll beRead More

From the buzziest indie film of the year to… a “Rocky” sequel? Deadline reports “Fruitvale Station” director-actor duo Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan have found their next collaboration, and it’s certainly unexpected, at least to this writer.

If a deal comes together, Jordan would play the grandson of Apollo Creed,Read More

Boone moves on toRead More

The film’s plot is being kept under wraps but it was reported earlier that it will beRead More
