Maze Runner: The Death Cure pushed back a year as Fox reshuffles its slate

28 May 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This won’t come as much of a surprise given that production was shut down indefinitely last month following Dylan O’Brien’s on-set accident in March, but 20th Century Fox has announced that it has pushed back the release of The Maze Runner: The Death Cure from its original date of February 17th 2017 to January 12th, 2018. As yet, there’s no word as to when production will resume.

As well as pushing back the final chapter of The Maze Runner series, Fox has also dated several of its upcoming movies, as well as shuffling dates for several others, including its two recently announced mystery Marvel movies. Here’s the schedule, courtesy of Deadline:

Morgan, Directed by Luke Scott and starring Kate Mara: wide release September 2, 2016.

Keeping Up With The Joneses, Directed by Greg Mottola and starring Gal Gadot, Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm, Zach Galifianakis: wide release on October 21, 2016.

Predator 4 and Alita: Battle Angel Get New 2018 Release Dates

28 May 2016 11:29 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It has been reported today that The Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the third movie in the franchise, is being delayed almost an entire year while leading man Dylan O'Brien recovers from on-set injuries. In the wake of this, 20th Century Fox has done some rescheduling, handing out a few new release dates, and shuffling others. The biggest of these upcoming movies is director Shane Black's Predator reboot, which is arriving earlier than expected. And producer James Cameron's Alita: Battle Angel has finally been given an official summer release date.

Set up as a true sequel to the first three films, The Predator reboot will arrive as a big budget tentpole. 50 Cent is reportedly starring in the movie, which may bring Arnold Schwarzenegger's Dutch back from the 1987 classic. The sci-fi thriller about a hunter from outer space who collects skulls as trophies was originally set to open »

Maze Runner 3 Delayed Until 2018 While Star Recovers

28 May 2016 10:45 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While it was original stated that The Maze Runner: The Death Cure wouldn't be shifted out of its February 17, 2017 release slot following the on-set injuries obtained by star Dylan O'Brien, that plan has now changed. The Ya fantasy adventure is being delayed by almost a year while the actor recovers. The movie will now debut on January 12, 2018. This has caused 20th Century Fox to do some in-house restructuring, which means new release dates for quite a few anticipated releases.

The Death Cure was originally slated to go up against quite a few heavy hitters, and the move might be for the best. Opening on February 17 of next year are the anticipated sequel Bad Boys 3 and the Stephen King adaptation The Dark Tower. Warner Bros. also has the comedy Fist Fight opening in this frame, which pits Ice Cube and Charlie Day in a brawl amongst high school teachers that is »

Not since the turn of the millennium has Warren Beatty stepped before the camera, and it’s been even longer since the veteran helmed a feature film of his own. Looking to kill two birds with the one cinematic stone later this year, Beatty is primed to direct and star in Rules Don’t Apply, a period drama centering on the story of elusive billionaire Howard Hughes.

Pegged to land in November, Entertainment Weekly has premiered a pair of still images for the period drama, placing Beatty in the role of Hughes himself. Elsewhere, there’s also first looks at Alden Ehrenreich – your new Han Solo – and Lily Collins, who uproots for Hollywood to pursue a new life during the early ’60s.

When quizzed about his longstanding desire to craft a movie based on the life and times of Howard Hughes, Beatty told EW: “I’ve »

First look at Warren Beatty as Howard Hughes in Rules Don’t Apply

19 May 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been fifteen years since we last saw Warren Beatty on screen – and eighteen years since he was last behind the camera – but the Hollywood legend is set to make his return this year with Rules Don’t Apply, which will see him starring as the eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes, and EW has the first look image…

“I’ve had the idea of making a movie about Howard Hughes in mind for a long time,” states Beatty. “We never met, but I sometimes feel like I knew everybody who knew Howard and I never lost my curiosity about him. It’s just that I don’t run around doing movies all the time.”

Rules Don’t Apply sees Beatty joined in the cast by Lily Collins, Alden Ehrenreich, Annette Bening, Alec Baldwin, Haley Bennett, Candice Bergen, Matthew Broderick, Dabney Coleman, Steve Coogan, Taissa Farmiga, Ed Harris, Megan Hilty, Oliver Platt, »

Rules Don't Apply

Following on from yesterday's first look photos from the project, actor and filmmaker Warren Beatty has released the first photo of himself as Howard Hughes in his new film "Rules Don't Apply" - his first directorial effort in 18 years and first onscreen role in 15 years.

The movie, which Beatty described as comedy, follows a young man (Alden Ehrenreich) and a young woman (Lily Collins) from puritan backgrounds who come to Hollywood on the brink of the sexual revolution and the rise of feminism in the early 1960s. It's currently targeting a November 11th release. [Source: EW]

10 Things We Learned About Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes Movie

18 May 2016 9:16 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Warren Beatty‘s Howard Hughes movie has been a long-gestating passion project. And curiosity about it reached a fever pitch once news got out that the 79-year-old was using the latest in movie technology to make himself look younger in his depiction of the late business magnate, who was famous for his romances with screen sirens such as Katharine Hepburn and Ava Gardner. Set in 1950s Hollywood, “Rules Don’t Apply” follows the relationship between a young actress (Lily Collins) and her driver (Alden Ehrenreich), as they encounter Hughes (Beatty). After it had been shrouded in mystery for months, Beatty »

First Look: Warren Beatty Returns as Howard Hughes in ‘Rules Don’t Apply’

18 May 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

It’s been almost two decades since Warren Beatty has directed a film. He last starred in the disastrous Town & Country, but his last directorial effort was 1998’s Bulworth, a hilarious and somewhat overlooked film. The director is famously known for taking his time with each project, but this is his longest hiatus yet. However, we’ll soon see Beatty […]

'Rules Don't Apply' to the long-rumored Howard Hughes film by Warren Beatty

18 May 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Warren Beatty’s been talking about Howard Hughes as long as I’ve lived in Los Angeles. When I was in high school, one of the things I did was devour entire careers on home video as a way of educating myself about various filmmakers and eras. I was aware of Warren Beatty before that, certainly, and remember Heaven Can Wait in particular as a big commercial moment for Beatty. I loved that movie and the weird goofball guy who starred in it, but it was almost a decade later when I finally plunged headlong into his filmography and suddenly realized that I kind of adore Beatty. And why not? Look at that body of work in front of the camera first. He’s been relatively selective over the years, and considering what a giant movie star he was considered at one time, he never really became omnipresent like some of his peers. »

First Images Hit From Warren Beatty's New Film 'Rules Don't Apply'

18 May 2016 12:03 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It's been a good while since actor/director Warren Beatty has directed a film. Over fifteen years, in fact. Not since Bulworth has Beatty sat in the director's chair. That's something that's poised to change this November with the period comedy Rules Don't Apply.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the story follows an actress and a driver who both work for the Howard Hughes (played by Beatty), the eccentric billionaire, tycoon, aviator, and all-around pusher of boundaries. Despite Hughes' strict policy against employees becoming romantically involved, the two succumb to each other's charm.

Beatty was careful to point out that the movie is not a Howard Hughes biopic, and that the two lovers would be the focal point of the film.

Rules Don't Apply stars Mortal Instruments actress Lily Collins and new Han Solo star Alden Ehrenreich. Rounding out the supporting cast are Alec Baldwin, Matthew Broderick, Candice Bergen, Steve Coogan, »

Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes Movie Gets November Release

18 May 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox has set an awards-season release date of Nov. 11 for Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes movie and titled it Rules Don’t Apply.

The film — the first that Beatty has directed since 1998’s “Bullworth” — is a romantic comedy-drama set in 1958 Hollywood with Beatty portraying Hughes. Beatty also wrote and produced.

The film stars Lily Collins and Alden Ehrenreich, an actress and driver who work for Hughes — who forbids romance between his employees. The cast includes Alec Baldwin, Matthew Broderick, Candice Bergen, Steve Coogan and Annette Bening.

Baldwin is playing Robert Maheu, a key confidante of the eccentric billionaire. Maheu, a former spy, said that he never saw Hughes and received all his instructions from notes and telephone.

The film has been funded by Ron Burkle, Steve Bing, Windsor Media’s Terry Semel, Arnon Milchan’s New Regency and James Packer and Brett Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment.

18 May 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With shooting taking place back in early 2014, for any other film, we might be worried about the long wait it has taken for Warren Beatty to complete his Howard Hughes drama. However, with the director known to spend his time in the editing room, delicately putting together the pieces of his puzzle, so to speak, we’ll gladly wait. Finally completed this year, the drama’s been picked up by 20th Century Fox and now we have the first look, title, and release date.

Coming from EW (in case you didn’t pick up on the egregious watermarks), we can see Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!, a certain new Star Wars film) and Lily Collins (Mirror Mirror) in Rules Don’t Apply, which marks Beatty’s first directorial effort in nearly two decades, following Bulworth. The drama, set in 1958, follows Collins’ character as an actress and Ehrenreich as her driver, two »

First Look: Warren Beatty's "Rules Don't Apply"

Though shot some time ago, actor and filmmaker Warren Beatty has been keeping his latest film under wraps. EW lifted the lid on the film today, revealing that it has scored the title "Rules Don't Apply".

His fifth directorial effort overall and first since 1998's "Bulworth," Beatty stars in the movie as the reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes. Beatty, who hasn't been seen on screen since 2001's "Town & Country," has also enlisted some impressive talent including future Han Solo star Alden Ehrenreich along with Lily Collins, Haley Bennett, Alec Baldwin, Matthew Broderick, Candice Bergen, Steve Coogan, Martin Sheen, Ed Harris, Oliver Platt and Annette Bening.

Talking about the film, he says he's long been drawn to Hughes but stresses this isn't going to be a "The Aviator"-style serious drama about him: "I never lost my curiosity about him. It's just that I don't run around doing movies all the time. »
