The Top 13 Guilty Pleasure Movies!

19 December 2011 7:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Let’s face it. We can’t hide it. We all have those movies that we like that others would shun. These are guilty pleasures: the ones that aren’t that great but we love for some reason or another. Here are mine. Be sure to list yours in the comments, if you’d like.

Last Action Hero (1993)

Rotten Tomatoes: 38%

Actors: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Austin O’Brien, F. Murray Abraham, Art Carney, Charles Dance

Director: John McTiernan/Writers: Shane Black and David Arnott

Here’s the thing: I will defend this movie’s concept till Doomsday. A movie about a kid with a magic ticket that gets pulled into an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie? Genius concept.  Yes, the kid is annoying. Yes, the movie doesn’t reach the heights of a McTiernan/Black team-up as well as one might think. It’s interesting to note that McTiernan isn’t working as much »

“Cowboys & Aliens” Studios Sued For Copyright Infringement

5 December 2011 7:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Scott Rosenberg involved in legal problems and accused of theft? What are the odds?

Cowboys & Aliens studios Universal Pictures and Platinum Studios have been sued by cartoonist Stephen Busti, who claims that the graphic novel and Jon Favreau movie infringes on his strip ‘Cowboys and Aliens’, which appeared in Bizarre Fantasy #1 in 1994.

TMZ reports that Busti’s story was spotlighted in a 1995 issue of Comic Shop News on the same page that ran a story about Platinum’s Scott Rosenberg. The studio executive later presented the Cowboys & Aliens concept to the studio.

Platinum produced a Cowboys & Aliens poster in 1997 and sold the rights to the property to Universal and Dreamworks. It did not appear in graphic novel form until 2006.

My favourite film: Beautiful Girls

3 November 2011 5:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In our writers' favourite film series, Michael Hann and family find solace in Ted Demme's flawed but incisive ensemble drama

• Not pretty enough? Post your own review of Demme's Beautiful Girls – or leave a comment in the thread

You could argue that Ted Demme's Beautiful Girls is little more than an artfully arranged array of Hollywood comedy-drama archetypes. High school reunion? Yes. Bunch of tight childhood friends on divergent paths? Yes. Plus you've got unattainable girls, commitment issues, and the need to make a big decision that will change everything forever. And there are the character archetypes, too: the smooth lothario whose life is really a sham, the deluded jerk, the square, the happy loser, the cool but not too cool guy we're set up to identify with, the kinda kooky but great girl we're meant to fall in love with, the sassy best friend, the glamorous outsider with the model looks. »

Our Favorite Speeches: 'Beautiful Girls'

9 August 2011 2:10 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Screenwriter Scott Rosenberg reportedly scripted this 1996 slice of small-town American life while he was stuck in Boston one winter, awaiting word from Disney about his screenplay for Con Air. Craving something a little less explosive, he decided to write a story about his hometown friends and the way they dealt with their impending 30s and the notion of spending their entire lives in the same town they grew up in together. In Beautiful Girls, when Willie Conway (Timothy Hutton) returns home from New York City, he discovers that his pal Paul Kirkwood's coping strategy involves fixating on the world's most beautiful women. It becomes obvious pretty quickly that Beautiful Girls director Ted Demme found the perfect actor to deliver Paul's poetic ode to beautiful women...

'Army Of Darkness' Gets A Video Game And 50 Cent Joins 'Odd Thomas' In This Week's Horror Bites

19 May 2011 1:51 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

by Alison Nastasi

Oddballs and weirdos populate this week's Horror Bites. Some are living large (1,200 pounds to be exact), and others are blind as a bat, but Bruce Campbell (and his chin) remains horror's eternal hero and keeps things light with a new game to play.

50 Cent takes on Satan in a new based-on-the-book movie. The rapper/actor plays a blind DJ and will be starring alongside upcoming "Fright Night" actor Anton Yelchin for this tale originally penned by Dean Koontz.

An actor from "Robot Chicken" is gaining several hundred pounds for a role in David Arquette's "Glutton," which sounds like shades of David Fincher's creepy "Se7en." A family moves into a haunted house thanks to a "hauntrepreneur's" recommendation. Meanwhile, Freddy Krueger will be howling alongside strippers in a new movie that wins the award for most obvious film title ever.

Platinum Dunes Continues Move Away From Horror With Family Fantasy Film ‘The Hauntrepreneur’

19 May 2011 9:48 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Briefly: Platinum Dunes has been slowly moving away from producing only horror remakes -- having proven an ability to assemble a profitable film in that arena, it's time to move on to new grounds, I guess. The latest project the company has set up with Paramount is The Hauntrepeneur, a pretty awkwardly-titled spec pitch by Scott Rosenberg that could result in a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-type film. THR [1] says the story "centers on a family that has trouble adjusting to a new town and hires a peculiar man, the Hauntrepreneur, to help it. The man attempts to bring them together by creating a haunted house populated by an odd cast of characters." Scott Rosenberg is known for his Con Air and Gone in Sixty Seconds scripts, as well as TV series like Going to California and October Road. How any of that experience will come to bear specifically on this project is unknown. »

Paramount Pictures picks up The Hauntrepreneur

19 May 2011 9:10 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Paramount Pictures is going to pick up a new family horror spec by Scott Rosenberg called The Hauntrepreneur. Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes production company will produce the film. Rosenberg has written films such as Con Air and Gone in Sixty Seconds.

The tone of the film is described as being kind of like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory but with a haunted house and ghosts. The story centers on a family that has trouble adjusting to a new town and hires a peculiar man, the Hauntrepreneur, to help it. The man attempts to bring them together by creating a haunted house populated by an odd cast of characters. 

Now that sounds like fun idea! I can get on board with this movie concept. They have to cast Doug Jones as the peculiar man. What do you all think?

Paramount To Hire A "Hauntrepreneur"

19 May 2011 6:54 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Paramount is in negotiations to pick up Scott Rosenberg's original supernatural family adventure script "The Hauntrepreneur" for Platinum Dunes to produce says Heat Vision.

The story follows a family that has trouble adjusting to a new town and hires a peculiar man, the Hauntrepreneur, to help it. The man attempts to bring them together by creating a haunted house populated by an odd cast of characters.

Despite Dunes making its reputation on horror remakes, the tone for this said to be akin to Tim Burton's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". Rosenberg penned films such as "Con Air" and "Gone in 60 Seconds" before moving to TV with the likes of "October Road" and the failed U.S. remake of "Life on Mars". »

'The Hauntrepreneur' is Now Open for Business at Paramount Pictures

19 May 2011 6:20 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After making huge bank with the found footage film Paranormal Activity, Heat Vision reports Paramount Pictures is getting into a haunting of a different kind. Teaming with Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes banner, the company behind remakes like A Nightmare on Elm Street, the studio has just picked up an original spec script from writer Scott Rosenberg called The Hauntrepreneur. The story centers on a family that has trouble adjusting to a new town and hires a peculiar man, the Hauntrepreneur, to help them out. The man attempts to bring them together by creating a haunted house populated by an odd cast of characters. Wha? I'm not sure exactly why the family thinks hiring this guy will help them, but whatever. Apparently the film is described as having a tone similar to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, so it will have some quirk and darkness to it. This is another »
