In May, Edgar Wright left Ant-Man, a film he had been developing with Marvel Studios for nigh on half a decade. If you were a fan of his Cornetto trilogy, or just of ants and/or men in general, but especially of men named Paul Rudd, then a tear was most likely shed that day. Rumors spun that Wright would then jump onto a big screen adaptation of the TV show The Night Stalker with Johnny Depp in the starring role. Those rumors died down and what we are left with is Wright turning to another long-gestating project, the awesomely named and equally mysterious Baby Driver.Deadline reports that this will be Wright's next directorial effort, with his old pals from Working Title Films producing.

Following his somewhat surprising departure from the director’s chair of Marvel’s Ant-Man movie, speculation turned to what Edgar Wright would do next. There has been talk of him turning his attention to the Night Stalker adaptation he’s been developing with Disney and Johnny Depp, but according to Deadline, Wright is instead going top speed on Baby Driver.The film which is not, you may be saddened to hear, the tale of an infant who turns out to be a whizz at the wheel, is one that Edgar has been writing and developing for years. And it remains largely shrouded in mystery, since he’s trying to keep it largely quiet: “I think when I do that one I’d like to go completely silent for once,” he told us in 2009 while making Scott Pilgrim. “Probably because it’s not an adaptation or anything, or a sequel to anything else. »
May 2014 wasn’t a good month for filmmaker Edgar Wright. The director decided to painfully walk away from Marvel’s “Ant-Man” film, a project he had spearheaded to make with the then-fledgling company and spent eight years developing it. The move was heartache for the director, but as Marvel wanted something … potentially a lot more compromised, so Wright had to stick to his guns and bow out. While there were some—misplaced—talk that Wright would be tackling his adaptation of “The Night Stalker” with Johnny Depp next, that’s turned out not to be the case. Instead Wright is going back to the long-gestating “Baby Driver,” a project he’s been developing since circa 2008. And maybe it was “the musical” that Wright was hinting at for several years now. Deadline calls “Baby Driver” a “collision of crime, action, music and sound.” The movie is as far away as can »

After Wright left “Ant-Man” due to creative differences, the industry was eager to see what film he would come on to next given he had so many films in development including the Disney pic “The Night Stalker” which Johnny Depp is attached to star in.
Wright is repped by CAA and Anonymous Content. Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.

Miranda Kerr looked gorgeous when she stepped out in NYC on Monday. The model wore a pair of leopard heels that we've seen her in before.

The ratty hair, the twisted teeth, the oily flesh. No, I'm not talking about the newest movie monster. I'm talking about our awkward high school years! In celebration of the release of All Cheerleaders Die, we're taking a look back at the Top 9 High School Horrors.
Looking back, we can remember plenty of high school horrors, and combination skin is just one of them. There were a lot of possibilities for this list, and we've got 9 of our favorites listed below. But we would have to flunk ourselves if we didn't turn in an honor roll of honorable mentions.
Of course another Lucky McKee film, The Woods, has to be listed, as does Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And those vivacious vixens from The Craft turned up the heat in their high school, and nobody - and we mean nobody - survives Cherry Falls.
And now, on to the...

The Wrap has reported that the currently untitled return of director Cameron Crowe (Vanilla Sky, Almost Famous) has been pushed back from it’s original Christmas Day release until the middle of next spring. And while it may seem like a downer, it sounds like Sony, who are distributing the movie, have made the right choice considering the competition it faced in the Us over Christmas.
In the Us, the film was originally set to go head-head-to-head with a glut of wide, and potential hit, films. Disney’s big film for the festive season, an adaptation of musical Into the Woods, starring Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt and Chris Pine was arguably the biggest obstacle.
Other obsticles included Angelina Jolie-directed Unbroken, cult-comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, which begins it’s limited release on the same day, but will still draw in the crowds. »

In a shocking and dispiriting turn of events, Wally Pfister, the talented cinematographer of Inception, The Dark Knight and practically every other Christopher Nolan film, chose Transcendence, surely one of the most jaw-droppingly brainless sci-fi movies in years, as his first directing gig. And Pfister will hopefully get out just about unscathed from this agonizing trainwreck, because his consistently stylish and visually pleasing direction is the only reason Transcendence should get any stars.
But I still must ask, what was he thinking? How is it possible that an Academy Award winner who worked on one of the best and most thoughtful sci-fi films of the last decade could have looked at the story of Transcendence and thought, “Yup, sounds good”? I can’t think of a wannabe blockbuster in recent memory that has ever been as gruesomely mauled to death by its script as Transcendence – after learning that screenwriter Jack Paglen »

This week: A rough ride for Depp & Schwarzenegger, 'Billie Jean' finally comes to Blu, and get the collection basket out for 'Heaven is for Real.' ► Few movies got ripped worse than Transcendence this year.

The hits have been smaller, but so have the flops.
The summer box office is down 20%, but most of the films that have hit theaters over the last three months have a good chance of recouping their production budgets while still in theaters.
“We really haven’t had an out and out misfire yet,” said Jeff Bock, an analyst with Exhibitor Relations.
There’s been nary an “After Earth,” a “White House Down” or “The Lone Ranger” to harsh Hollywood’s mellow this summer. To say nothing of “R.I.P.D,” the D.O.A. science-fiction comedy that debuted nearly a year ago to the day, recouping only $78 million of its $130 million production costs plus whatever else it took to market this “Ghostbusters” retread.

Wentworth Miller has been tapped to play Leonard Snart, who becomes Captain Cold, on The Flash, which will lead us into the origins of the Rogues. In fact, Geoff Johns says that The Flash is the most faithful comic book adaptation that television has ever seen. “It’s probably the most faithful DC Comics adaptation ever. We’ve incorporated almost everything of the mythology into it and added a new backstory with S.T.A.R. Labs.”
Speaking of Miller, he talks to Details about his depression, coming out, and whether there’s a risk to an actor being out in alienating female fans. “No. The people onscreen aren’t the characters they’re playing. They’re our projection of who we want them to be. I think it »
