When you’re the only Trauma 1 hospital in 18 counties, things are bound to get crazy, especially on the night shift.  You’re required to respect rules, but you also have to know when to bend them in order to save lives and that’s exactly what the staff at San Antonio Memorial Hospital does on NBC’s The Night Shift.

While on the show’s Albuquerque set, Collider got the chance to sit down one-on-one with the entire cast, including Freddy Rodriguez, Scott Wolf, JR Lemon and Daniella Alonso.  In this batch of interviews you can catch what they told us about their characters’ stances on when to adhere to hospital policy, night shift relationship drama, Lemon’s slew of on-set inside jokes and tons more.  Check it all out in the videos after the jump.

It won’t be easy adding yet another medical show to the mix, but Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah (Freaks and Geeks, 90210) are giving it a go with their comedy-drama hybrid, The Night Shift.

While on the show’s Albuquerque set, Sachs himself even admitted that it wasn’t easy finding someone to give them a shot.  “We would go in there and pitch and it would be like, ‘That’s so great.  So anyway, so they’re in high school …’”  He continued, “And then we said, ‘Well, we want to do a medical drama that has this intensity, but also adds some humor into it,’ and it was just so foreign.”  Fortunately the concept wasn’t foreign to everyone because come Tuesday, May 27th, The Night Shift begins its run on NBC.  Hit the jump for our full report from visiting the set of this unique new series.

While most everyone’s eyes are on Kathryn Bigelow’s (The Hurt Locker) untitled drama about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, another film about the Navy SEAL team tasked with bringing the terrorist leader down has assembled its cast. Variety reports that Anson Mount (TV’s Hell on Wheels), Cam Gigandet (Twilight), Freddy Rodriguez (Planet Terror), and William Fichtner (Black Hawk Down) are set to star in Code Name: Geronimo. John Stockwell (Turistas) is onboard to direct the actioner from a script by Kendall Lampkin.

Mount plays “an agile and assured member of SEAL Team Six,” and Kathleen Robertson is set as an eager CIA case officer. I’m not entirely sure we need two movies about the hunt for Bin Laden, and Bigelow’s definitely has the edge here. It’s her first film since winning the Best Director and Best Picture Oscar for The Hurt Locker and she’s assembled a very impressive cast (including Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, and Chris Pratt). Bigelow’s film is set to open this December, but Code Name: Geronimo doesn’t seem to have a release date yet. Geronimo is currently filming in New Mexico.

The cast for the thriller Over the Wall is starting to fill out. Kim Basinger, Nick Stahl and Freddy Rodriguez are all attached to star in the film, with Jennifer Morrison in advanced negotiations to join them. Variety reports that Steven Christopher Young will make his feature directorial debut on the flick, which is being produced by Young and Larry Meistrich.

The love story takes place in the world of stock-car racing and tells the story of how a tragic accident rocks the lives of four people. Production is set to begin this summer in Ohio. The project is currently being shopped at Cannes.

GRINDHOUSE Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 4 years, 9 days ago

There are two things to note about this recent release of Grindhouse. The first is that when the film premiered in the spring of 2007, much was hoped for this three hour double feature from Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. Rodriguez’s half Planet Terror had a stripper (Rose MacGowan) and her off-again boyfriend (Freddy Rodriguez) battling a zombie plague brought on by a scientist (Naveen Andrews) and a crazy solider (Bruce Willis). Death Proof is the second half and has Kurt Russell playing a killer whose weapon of choice is a stunt car, and whose prey are young women (including Rosario Dawson, Zoe Bell, Tracy Thoms, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Vanessa Ferlito, Sydney Poitier, Jordan Ladd and Rose McGowan). But Tarantino’s and Rodriguez’s fan-base and the world at large either didn’t get or didn’t care about the movie, and so it flopped at the box office. It was meant to be a fun flagship production by the Weinstein company, and instead was a big black eye. As such the films were broken off and sold separately on home video. So finally, three and a half years later, the film comes as originally intended to DVD and Blu-ray. And my review of this three hour opus is after the jump.
