Snow White Prequel (Stupidly) Drops Snow White, Gets New Title and Release Date

31 July 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

‘The Huntsman’ release date announced as ‘Snow White and the Huntsman 2′ drops Snow White aka Kristen Stewart (photo: Chris Hemsworth in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’) Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has a new title, as the "sequel" to Rupert Sanders’ 2012 fantasy adventure Snow White and the Huntsman is scheduled to arrive on screens in 2016 without Snow White — played by Kristen Stewart as an armor-clad Joan of Arc-ish heroine (minus the burning at the stake) in the original film. So, Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has now been renamed The Huntsman. Now, does it sound idiotic to drop Snow White from what was purportedly going to be a Snow White movie sequel? Well, it does — and that’s because it is. So, instead of calling Snow White and the Huntsman 2, or rather, The Huntsman, a "sequel," the film is now being referred to as a "spin-off" — or, to be more precise, »

Morris Chestnut: The Best Man Wedding A “Complete Departure” From Previous Films

25 July 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Morris Chestnut was busy fending off fans at Comic-Con yesterday, where he promoted his new TNT miniseries Legends. When not talking up his show with Sean Bean (aka: the star one of the most iconic Game of Thrones scene ever), he gave us a little scoop on what fans can expect from the just-announced Best Man threequel, out April 2016. Chestnut says writer/director Malcolm Lee told him The Best Man Wedding is “a complete departure” from the first two films.

What could it mean?! No more New Edition lip-syncing performances?! Don’t do that to us, guys! We also asked what’s up with his character, Lance, who ended the last film [spoiler alert!] delivering his best friends’ baby in the back of an SUV immediately following his wife’s funeral. Chestnut fills us in about Legends and the Best Man Wedding, above. »

23 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Malcolm D. Lee‘s crowd-pleasing and big money-earning The Best Man franchise is bound for trilogy designation, as Universal has just announced that the third film in the series will arrive in 2016. Deadline reports that The Best Man Wedding – wait, is it the wedding of the best man? who is his best man? maybe they should have thought about these titles a bit more — will arrive on April 15, 2016, reuniting the sprawling cast to participate in (what else!) a big time wedding. Lee is back on board to write and direct the feature, and the franchise’s many cast members — including Morris Chestnut, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Harold Perrineau and Melissa De Sousa — are all expected to come back for more. Monica Calhoun will probably, um, not be back. Now that the blockbuster series is moving into pretty firm franchise territory, is it time for you to get on board? Well »

The Best Man Wedding Set For 2016

23 July 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After The Best Man Holiday, a star-studded follow-up to 1999′s The Best Man, became a huge hit last November, Universal must have realized what a hit it had on its hands. Now, the studio has set a third installment, titled The Best Man Wedding, for release on April 15th, 2016.

A few things made a third installment in the series a near certainty. Firstly, The Best Man Holiday, budgeted at $17 million, had a terrific $30 million opening weekend and went on to bcome the fifth most successful R-rated romantic comedy of all time. Secondly, it received a stunning A+ CinemaScore across all quadrants. And finally, it starred an embarassment of in-demand stars including Taye Diggs, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Morris Chestnut, Monica Calhoun, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Melissa De Sousa and Regina Hall. All of those actors are expected to be back for The Best Man Wedding.

Expect a Wedding, a Distant Location, Twists & Turns & Even More Laughs in 'Best Man 3'

25 June 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

After a $30.1 million opening weekend for his sequel "The Best Man Holiday" last fall, director Malcolm D. Lee negotiated a deal with Universal to write, direct and produce another installment of the ensemble romantic comedy, which went on to gross over $70 million in domestic box office, making for a profitable film for the studio, given that it cost only $17 million to make. So it really shouldn't be much of a surprise that a 3rd film was of interest to the studio; although, in this business, nothing is ever certain until it's actually made, even if it's formally announced. Also, whether the ensemble cast has been locked in to return, isn't yet known. Although I expect »

As Predicted Here, Resolution Agents Adam Kanter And Martin Spencer Land At Paradigm; Which Clients Will Come?

13 March 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

As Deadline reported last Friday, Paradigm has confirmed that agents Adam Kanter and Martin Spencer have joined the agency after their abrupt exits from Resolution. Word had raced last week that this was happening, as the two agents did not want to take paycuts from their low-seven-figure salaries. The two joined Jeff Berg last year shortly after he left ICM to launch Resolution, and those agents came from CAA. At Paradigm, they should feel right at home alongside former CAA cohorts Bob Bookman, Ken Stovitz, Rand Holston and most recently Manny Nunez. Related: Resolution Agents Martin Spencer, Adam Kanter Exiting; Paradigm Next Stop? So now, the big question is which clients will join them in the move. Here are the ones I’m hearing are most likely to make the jump to Paradigm: Stuart Beattie, Stalingrad helmer Fedor Bondarchuk, Joe Johnston, Mark Steven Johnson, Malcolm Lee, Rob Minkoff, Evan and Shea Mirzai, »
