Disney is bringing Dumbo back to the big screen. The studio is developing a, you guessed it, live-action take on its 1941 animated classic. Ehren Kruger, who wrote the Transformers franchise, has been hired to pen the script.
Dumbo is one of the shortest, but also most moving animated features in Disney's movie repertoire. The film (you know, just in case you forgot) tells the story of a young circus elephant who is ridiculed because of his enormous ears. According to THR, the new take will tell the original story but also include "a unique family story that parallels Dumbo's story."
Lately, Disney has been in the game of turning old animated classics into live action movies, and it has worked out for them thus far. Most recently, the studio released Maleficent, which is a re-imagining of the 1959 movie Sleeping Beauty. The pic grossed more than $630 million worldwide. And before that, »

We may be going back to a time when we wore headgear and had acne, but amidst the pubescent awkward phase of our lives, was the glory of pop princesses like Britney Spears and heartthrobs like Nsync totally ruling our worlds.
They’re cheesy, they’re colorful and they’re in many ways completely ridiculous, but only these magazines (that still exist, by the way) truly knew the way to our hearts. They helped us answer questions like: Do I have what it takes to be a Backstreet Boys girl? What do I need to do to have a romance like Britney and Justin’s? Who are the girls the members of New Kids On The Block just can’t live without? Very, very important things. Obviously.

Some things aren't forever - and in this case, it's love and tattoos. What once was a signal of eternal commitment can now be lasered off when a relationship goes down the drain. Certain celebrities are famous for having their significant others' names or symbolic gestures inked on their bodies . . . only to have them removed after a breakup. The latest to join the club is Melanie Griffith, who is in good company with Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, and more. »

Kevin Smith has been on this site quite a lot recently with talk of Clerks III (see here and here), Star Wars Episode VII (see here and here) and being rumoured and subsequently denying his involvement in the fake script for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
So, it was quite smart of the director to use this time to promote his upcoming movie, Tusk.
On his blog Silent Bob Speaks, Smith debuted the poster while squashing reports he had written the leaked script. He writes…
While you’re here, however? That script for Tusk that I wrote? We turned into an actual movie that’s coming out this fall from A24. Oddly enough, it’s the best film I’ve ever made (or at the very least, the most interesting). Thank you all for saying #WalrusYes on Twitter last year. Can’t wait to show you the movie. In the meantime, »

Last week, we reported that director Kevin Smith had taken it upon himself to write a fake Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice screenplay used by Warner Bros. to trick movie bloggers into posting false rumors about the production. The writer/director had stayed quiet on the subject over the 4th of July weekend, but built up a little momentum, claiming that all questions would be answered today at 11:00 am. He was actually using this announcement as a launching pad for the first teaser poster for his upcoming independent horror movie Tusk.
Check out the poster along with comments from Kevin Smith:
1 year ago, you said #WalrusYes so I wrote Tusk. Today, I present our official poster!
Behold... The Tusk Poster!
One year ago from this moment, I was writing a script based on a then-recent episode of SModcast. One year later, I present to you the poster for the actual movie! »
The most famous elephant of all will be flying across a big screen again soon. This time, he won't be animated, though.
Disney is remaking their classic cartoon, "Dumbo," into a live-action movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. They've tapped "Transformers" writer Ehren Kruger to pen the script.
Thanks to advanced CGI technology, a live-action flying elephant is totally possible now. As "Dumbo" fans know, the story revolves around a baby circus elephant who is bullied for his large ears. With the help of a mouse friend named Timothy, Dumbo learns to use his ears to fly. THR reports that the live-action movie will add a family story to parallel Dumbo's narrative.
"Dumbo" is just the latest animated property that Disney is converting. They did it with "Alice in Wonderland," the blockbuster starring Johnny Depp, and with this year's "Maleficent," a reimagining of the classic "Sleeping Beauty." Disney is also »

The documentary For No Good Reason explores the life of British cartoon-artist Ralph Steadman, who is best known for caricatures he created alongside the work of longtime friend, journalist Hunter S. Thompson of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas fame (or infamy).
For No Good Reason was mainly shot on Steadman’s country estate with the artist’s pal Johnny Depp (The Tourist) serving as tour guide and narrator. The film, which incorporates archival footage, personal photographs, selections of the artist’s provocative and entertaining work and animated “updates” of said work, also features contributions from Terry Gilliam (Monty Python), Richard E. Grant (The Iron Lady), Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption) and Jann Wenner (co-founder and publisher of Rolling Stone), and features music from Slash, All-American Rejects, »
The 3rd July 2013 saw the release of Disney's The Lone Ranger, its larger-than-life western starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. Its theatrical debut marked the end of a lengthy and difficult production, stories from which had been hungrily served up by the media - the previous summer was dominated by news stories of its spiralling budget, which was thought to have crossed $250m. Nevertheless, the 2013 blockbuster season should, in theory, have marked a fresh start for Disney, as it spent a reported $150m on marketing The Lone Ranger. But the House of Mouse hadn't counted on the popularity of another film launched on that exact same day in July: Universal's animated sequel, Despicable Me 2.

Filmmaker Kevin Smith has been busier than ever these days, finishing up work on his upcoming horror movie Tusk, while setting up another movie entitled Anti-Claus, with the long-awaited Clerks III still waiting in the wings. During a recent interview with Screen Daily, the filmmaker clarified his upcoming slate, revealing that he is now working on a spin-off of Tusk known as Yoga-Hosers that will be shot later this year, followed by Anti-Claus and then Clerks III.
Yoga-Hosers will shoot later this year, with Demarest and Starscream providing the financing. The filmmaker revealed that the story is based on two minor characters who appear in Tusk.
"Like Tusk, [Yoga-Hosers] sprang out of a podcast. There are two characters in a convenience store in Tusk that you see for five minutes, very much Ronsencrantz and Guildenstern. I've built a whole movie around them and I have brought one of the other characters from Tusk back. »

Nathan Fielder knows what the people want, and he's going to do his best to pretend to give it to them so that he gets what he wants. Ahead of Tuesday's episode of “Nathan For You,” the network released a clip previewing Fielder's latest business gambit: Creating a fake movie set in front of a souvenir store in Hollywood to attract lots of curious and celebrity-obsessed customers.

Press junkets are weird. First, you walk into a room in a fancy hotel where you come upon a complete stranger whose face you know well, and on whom you have been given a dossier. Then, you sit down and for about four minutes this person is basically contractually obligated to answer your questions. You talk, but it’s not really a conversation because both your questions and, generally speaking, his or her answers are scripted riffs. This situation is even more strange if you initially knew this stranger’s face from a talk show where you saw her conducting interviews of her own. This is the situation I found myself in when I sat down with actress Olivia Munn to discuss her role in director Scott Derrickson’s new, semi-fact-based religious thriller Deliver Us From Evil. The Jerry Bruckheimer production, which also stars Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, and Joel McHale »
