New ‘Friday the 13th’ TV Series in Development

11 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Friday the 13th franchise, likes its iconic hockey-masked, machete-wielding, killer Jason Voorhees, just won’t die; its film installments are cheap to produce, have a built-in fanbase, and have grossed near half a billion dollars in theaters worldwide after 12 films (assuming you count the crossover Freddy Vs. Jason). Another movie reboot from the studio behind the 2009 series reboot – Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes – is scheduled to arrive in 2015, potentially decked out with new gimmicks accessories like a found-footage structure.

Meanwhile, as the task of locking down a director on the next installment continues, Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment are moving ahead with an hourlong TV series, based on the characters and setting of ...

First up is a new Japanese clip for Gareth EdwardsGodzilla. There’s not a ton of new footage in this preview, but there is some – and let’s be honest: we’d all watch the same Godzilla clip 10 times a day from now until the release because it looks that amazing.

Sony To Make A Live-Action Barbie Movie

15 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Every day I check on movie news, and every day I’m met with yet another toy-turned-movie marketing ploy in the making. Monster Trucks? Check. Monopoly? Check again. Troll Dolls? And one more check. I’m not certain who to blame for this. I’d like to lay it at the door of Michael Bay and his absurdly bad, absurdly successful Transformers franchise, but these kinds of toy-based films really have been coming at us for years. Indeed, we actually have one more to add to the pile, as Sony and Mattel have announced their intention to make a live-action Barbie movie. 

Production on the live-action Barbie movie is set to begin at the end of this year and it’s just the first installment in a planned franchise featuring the top-heavy, anatomically incorrect toy. Although she’s been everything from a race-car driver to a surgeon over the years, »

More Epic On-Set Feuds! 10 Actors Who Had Nothing But ‘Loathe’ For Their Directors

23 April 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

View Photo Gallery

Movie sets are emotionally-charged situations. First of all, film directors are notoriously a snippy sort. They have a very specific vision, and — under the pressure of deadlines and budgets — they’re charged with inspiring an entire crew and cast of actors to carry it out. We’d probably be jerks, too. And on the other side of things, there are the actors — most of whom are sensitive, narcissistic creative types who need a bit of ego-stroking to produce their greatest work. And sometimes, when those two personalities come together, all hell breaks loose.

Megan Fox loathed her Transformers director, Michael Bay. Katherine Heigl famously called Judd Apatow “sexist.” And Val Kilmer actually delivered an on-set beatdown to Joel Schumacher filming Batman Forever (so sad we didn’t get to see that. No doubt it would’ve been better than the movie).

Jerry Bruckheimer Gives National Treasure 3 And Bad Boys 3 Updates

22 April 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The sheer number of projects that producer Jerry Bruckheimer has at any given time is baffling, and frankly, it’s surprising that the man gets anything done. He oversees several long-running film franchises and TV shows, most of which have sequels in the works. Last week, he offered updates on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Beverly Hills Cop 4, and now we have news about two more: Bad Boys 3 and National Treasure 3.

The fact that a third Bad Boys film hasn’t happened yet is pretty surprising, considering that the first one grossed $141 million in 1995, and its follow up in 2003 brought home $273 million. It’s not like director Michael Bay is against sequels, and he certainly likes to make money, so why haven’t we seen a third film now that we’re 11 years past the last installment?

According to Bruckheimer, all of »

Jerry Bruckheimer Gives Update on 'Bad Boys 3' and 'National Treasure 3'

22 April 2014 1:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, producer Jerry Bruckheimer offered updates on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Beverly Hills Cop 4, but those are just two of his highly-anticipated projects that are currently in development. During a new interview with Collider, the producer offered updates on a pair of sequels, National Treasure 3 and Bad Boys 3.

Both projects have been in development for several years, even though their predecessors, 2007's National Treasure: Book of Secrets ($457 million worldwide) and 2003's Bad Boys II ($273 million worldwide) fared quite well at the box office. However, it still may be quite some time before we see either of these sequels in theaters.

Bad Boys 3 has been in the works for over 10 years, with Sony recently hiring screenwriter David Guggenheim (Safe House) to work on the script back in December. Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that the project's real problem has to deal with the timing being off, »

Kurtzman And Orci Splitting Up For Future Movies; Orci Looking To Direct Star Trek 3

22 April 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When it comes to blockbuster filmmaking, writer/producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have seemingly always come together as a package deal. First working together in the late 1990s as writers on the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, they took their act to the big screen in 2005 with Michael Bay's The Island and have been Hollywood mainstays for big-budget summer action ever since. But now it appears that their partnership in features is coming to an end. Variety is reporting news that Kurtzman and Orci are "parting amicably" and will be moving forward in different directions with their future feature efforts. The cause for the split is that both filmmakers want to start pursuing different directing opportunities. Kurtzman has already made his directorial debut, having helmed the family drama People Like Us, and he is currently attached to make the Amazing Spider-Man spin-off movie Venom. Orci, meanwhile, is »

From Michael Bay to Eminem, here are creators who've (sort of) apologized for their work

22 April 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

When you create something for public consumption, you’re putting yourself in a very fragile position. For example, creating a popular television show means handing your beloved characters over to the world for weekly scrutinizing. Then again, it also means handing them over for weekly adoration. But no matter how beloved a show, movie, album, or book might be, no creator is perfect. And by default, no creator’s work is perfect.

That being said, there are few times in the world of pop culture where a creator has come forth and apologized for a large piece of work. Do »

"Trek" & "Transformers" Scribes To Split

22 April 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Love them or loathe them, Hollywood blockbuster screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have decided to professionally separate.

The pair got started writing on TV with "Hercules" and "Alias" before transitioning to film a decade ago. On screen they've mostly been known for their collaborations with J.J. Abrams and Michael Bay.

While most of the films they have written have been big box-office winners, quality wise they've varied considerably. Their strongest work to date has included the "Star Trek" reboot, the first "Transformers," and TV series like "Fringe" and "Sleepy Hollow".

They also penned "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," "Star Trek Into Darkness," "The Island," "Cowboys and Aliens," "The Legend of Zorro," "Mission Impossible III" and served as producers on movies like "Now You See Me," "Eagle Eye," "The Proposal" and "Ender's Game".

The parting is said to be amicable and the TV side of their production company K/O Paper Products will remain intact. »

Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci Splitting Up on Bigscreen (Exclusive)

22 April 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Longtime writing and producing partners Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are parting ways in their filmmaking endeavors after nearly a decade together. The pair have worked on some of Hollywood’s biggest franchise films including “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ two “Transformers” movies, “Mission Impossible III” and “Star Trek Into Darkness.” They also collaborated on indie titles such as “Now You See Me” and “People Like Us,” which Kurtzman also directed.

Kurtzman and Orci–who will remain in business together on the TV front–are parting amicably, according to sources, and the split will allow them to pursue separate feature careers as directors. The two still have more than a dozen projects in development, including the next two “Spider-Man” films. It is unclear how those projects will be handled or divided between the two men. Their production company, K/O Paper Products, which they launched in 2009, will most likely be reconfigured »

'The Originals': Leah Pipes talks Cami's (sort of) love triangle, more fire stunts, and 'our darkest episode yet'

22 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Being a human in New Orleans isn’t something most people would see as a problem. But in the world of The Originals, it’s a major disadvantage, especially if your uncle has a hex that’s literally driving him mad and you’ve got some sort of weird almost love triangle happening with a vampire and a hybrid. Welcome to Cami’s world.

Last week, we watched Cami beg for Genevieve to help Kieran only to have Klaus ruin it all. And let’s not forget that bit where Klaus found out about Cami and Marcel’s night together. »
