Common Boards Barbershop 3

28 April 2015 11:35 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

MGM is betting that the Barbershop franchise has plenty of life left in it, luring Ice Cube and Cedric The Entertainer back to reprise their starring roles. Now the film has recent Oscar winner Common attached. The original 2003 movie found Cube as the South Side Chicago barber Calvin Palmer, a man who plied his trade surrounded by friends, lovers and oddballs. It was successful enough to spawn not only a sequel in 2004’s Barbershop 2: Back In Business, but a spin-off in the Queen Latifah-centric Beauty Shop and a short-lived TV series.Exactly what will happen in the new film isn’t yet clear, but we could predict lots of banter, friendly insults and possibly some comment on the current economic climate. The Best Man director Malcolm D. Lee is on board to call the shots, working from a script by Kenya Barris, creator of the Us TV sitcom Black-ish. »

New Projects: Patty Hearst, ‘Barbershop 3′, and a Lego spinoff

26 March 2015 11:07 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Just days after the 39th anniversary of the conviction of Patty Hearst back on March 20, 1976, Deadline is reporting that Fox 2000 has acquired the rights to a new, untitled book being written by Jeffrey Toobin about the life and kidnapping of Hearst. The writers behind Big Eyes, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, will be adapting Toobin’s account.

Deadline is also speculating the role might also be in development for Jennifer Lawrence, but those talks are currently preliminary.

Hearst was 20 when she was kidnapped from her wealthy parents in the Hearst Publishing Family. She was later found to have changed her name to Tania and had joined up with her kidnappers, the Symbionese Liberation Army and eventually robbed a bank in San Francisco. Hearst’s story, based on her own novel, was first adapted into a film in 1988 by Paul Schrader, with Natasha Richardson in the role. Hearst is now 61.

21 February 2015 8:28 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's been over 10 years since we've last been to the Barbershop so you all know what that means. Yes, that's right people, it's time for another installment of the hit franchise starring Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer. Get ready because we're heading back to the South Side of Chicago to cut some hair. While the complete details of Barbershop 3 are still being fashioned, word on the street is MGM is hiring The Best Man franchise director Malcolm D. Lee to helm the upcoming sequel. Of course we can count on seeing Cube and Cedric the Entertainer, both of whom, according to Deadline, are crafting deals to reprise their iconic roles of Calvin and Eddie, respectively. Whether or not we will see Terri (Eve) and Jimmy (Sean Patrick Thomas) rejoin the crew has yet been confirmed but due to their inclusion in the first two films, it's highly likely. »

11 Years Later... A 3rd 'Barbershop' Movie Is Moving Forward, With Malcolm D. Lee in Talks to Direct

19 February 2015 6:39 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Frankly, I really could do without a 3rd "Barbershop" movie, but it looks like the stars have aligned in favor of one, as MGM is indeed pushing forward with a 3rd film in the franchise, 11 years after the second film, which was released 2 years after the first. So much time has passed between the last film, and this upcoming threequel, that it's hard to say, at this point, if that fact will work in its favor, or against it. No word on plot yet.  What we do know right now is that Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer are expected to reprise their roles, with Cube's Cube Vision shingle producing.  And, per Deadline, Malcolm Lee is in talks to direct the »
