Disney's Rocketeer 2 Will Have a Black Female Lead

28 July 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney's 1991 classic The Rocketeer is coming back to the big screen with a big twist. Walt Disney Pictures has put what is described as a "sequel-reboot" to the original movie in development, which will be called The Rocketeers and will be set six years after the events of the original, taking place at the outset of the Cold War. The title character will not be Cliff Secord from the original, with a new character taking over.

The original movie, based on the 1980s indie comic by Dave Stevens, followed Cliff Secord, played by Billy Campbell, a stunt pilot who discovers a rocket pack suit, as he goes on adventures that puts him in the crosshairs of monsters, Nazis and even industrialist Howard Hughes. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Cliff Secord has disappeared while fighting the Nazis, which paves the way for a young African-American female pilot, who takes up the mantle of Rocketeer. »

Disney's The Rocketeer Getting A Reboot

28 July 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

If you're like me, when you heard the name Joe Johnston was attached to Captain America: The First Avenger, you likely had a warm feeling of familiarity fill your gut. That film, after all, was being pegged as an adventure film during WWII -- a territory Johnston had visited before when he directed 1991's The Rocketeer. The Rocketeer carried all the classic "Tomorrowland"-esque visions of the future technology and spirit of high adventure that made it an irresistible film for me as a kid.

For those too young to remember (or those who skipped the film), it followed the character Cliff Secord who discovered a rocket pack, and becomes mixed up in a big scheme involving Nazis, the mob, Howard Hughes, and the FBI.

According to THR, Disney is hard at work developing a reboot to the 1991 film, and have hired Max Winkler (son of actor Henry Winkler) and Matt Spicer, »

Tristin Mays Joins ‘MacGyver’ Completing Cast of CBS Reboot

27 July 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tristin Mays has joined the cast of CBS’s “MacGyver” reboot as a series regular, Variety has learned. With her addition, the show’s principal cast is complete.

Mays — who recently had an arc on “Supergirl” at CBS — will play Riley Davis, a highly unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder. Her brain teems with knowledge about computer coding and although she’s “kinda-sorta” pleased to be recruited for MacGyver’s team rather than be locked up in prison, she can’t be bothered to show much gratitude. Her character will first appear in the series premiere on Friday, Sept. 23.

Mays recently had an arc on the CW’s “The Vampire Diaries.” Her other credits include “Switched at Birth,” “The Wedding Ringer” and “Thunderstruck.”

MacGyver,” which is a new take on the original series, stars Lucas Till in the title role, George Eads, Justin Hires and Sandrine Holt. With »

Henry Winkler Remembers Garry Marshall: "He Was Like My Surrogate Dad"

20 July 2016 4:52 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Henry Winkler has had a long and storied career, but it began with Garry Marshall calming his nerves when he auditioned against a who's who of Hollywood names for what would become his breakout role, Fonzie on Happy Days. To hear Winkler tell it, Marshall was more than just a prolific TV and film producer and director — he was a surrogate father who not only instilled in him a team-player philosophy but also taught him how to play softball.

Emmy Awards: ‘Veep’ Star Peter MacNicol Disqualified as Guest Actor

20 July 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Veep” star Peter MacNicol, who was nominated last week for an Emmy Award for guest actor in a comedy, has been ruled ineligible and will no longer be competing in the category.

Per the Emmy rules that were instituted last year, “Only performers appearing in less than 50% of the eligible episodes are able to submit in the Guest Performer categories.” MacNicol, who played Jonah’s (Tim Simons) uncle Jeff Kane, appeared in five episodes of the ten-episode HBO comedy.

The Television Academy issued a statement that said: “Upon review of the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series category, the Television Academy has determined that Peter MacNicol unfortunately exceeds the number of episodes permissible for inclusion in that category.

HBO’s guest actor entry for Peter MacNicol was accurate at the time of the submission deadline, but he was subsequently included in an additional ‘Veep’ episode. Unfortunately, that additional appearance places him in 50% of the season’s episodes »

Pretty Woman Director Garry Marshall Dead At 81

20 July 2016 11:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Garry Marshall, the celebrated filmmaker and producer behind such films as Pretty Woman and The Princess Diaries, has died aged 81, sources have confirmed.

Marshall passed away Tuesday in Burbank, California following complications from a stroke and later pneumonia.

Known for his knack of firing young up-and-comers to stardom, Marshall was instrumental in putting both Richard Gere and Julia Roberts on the map via Pretty Woman – the latter nabbed an Oscar nomination for Best Actress – while The Princess Diaries ensured Anne Hathaway broke onto the scene as an exciting new talent. Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve and the recent Mother’s Day are examples of the director’s final movies.

His work extended beyond the silver screen, too, penning scripts and overseeing production on both Mork and Mindy and Happy Days. Of course, the latter birthed a fan favorite in Henry Winkler’s the Fonz, and for a brief time during its peak, »

If you are a fan of entertainment, the odds are, you're a fan of Garry Marshall.

The prolific writer, director and producer of television and movies died today at the age of 81 due from complications of pneumonia after a stroke.

Marshall's long line of televisions credits includes The Dick Van Dyke Show, Happy Days, and The Odd Couple among others.

Marshall's first television credit was for three episodes of The Jack Parr Tonight Show in 1960. Over the next 50 plus years, his credits looks like a virtual history of the American comedy.

Marshall not only created Happy Days, but the three spinoffs that came afterward, including Laverne & Shirley (starring his younger sister, Penny Marshall), Mork & Mindy (starring the late Robin Williams and Joanie & Chachi.

At one time, Marshall was writing three of the top four programs of the 1978-79 television season.

“I keep creating,” Marshall told us in 2015 at the Television Critics Assn. press tour. “I’m still pitching shows, as many people are,” he said, referring to a show he had in the works at the time about triplets. “What’s exciting is when the network gets behind it. Here, CBS is behind [the ‘Odd Couple’ revival].”
