Last week, we reported that filmmaker Quentin Tarantino was heading to Comic-Con 2014 to present his Dynamite comic book series that combines characters from his hit 2012 Western Django Unchained with the iconic Zorro character. During the panel, the filmmaker confirmed that he is moving forward with his new Western The Hateful Eight.
Deadline reported just before the panel began that the filmmaker is eyeing an early 2015 start date, which lines up with a report from earlier this month where Kurt Russell revealed shooting will begin early next year. The director wouldn't divulge any more details about the project at the Comic-Con panel.
As you may know, The Hateful Eight almost never made it off the ground after the script was first completed. We reported in January that the first draft of his script was leaked, which lead to the lawsuit he filed against Gawker Media. After initially talking about shelving the project indefinitely, »
Fans have been wanting to see Luke Cage a.k.a. Power Man make his way to the Marvel cinematic universe for quite some time now, and will finally get their wish when the Marvel Netflix shows start arriving in 2015. Daredevil is first, followed by Jessica Jones and Iron Fist, but Luke Cage is getting his own series as well, and will be part of the TV team-up event The Defenders.
We’ve heard several actors express their interest in playing Cage, from Idris Elba, Isaiah Mustafa, Dwayne Johnson, Terry Crews, and Mars Crain. Now, another has tossed his hat into the ring: The Best Man and Chicago alum Taye Diggs.
Diggs recently appeared on the Conan O’Brien Show, and said that he would like to play Cage if given the opportunity:
“Luke Cage. You ever heard of that? I’ve always liked that. Just you know, growing up a poor black boy, »

There was a time when Sony’s Spider-man franchise was the most bankable comic book property in Hollywood. However, that (unfortunately) seems like a very long time ago now, with films like The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier sweeping up the box office a regular basis.
It appeared as if Marvel Studios had all-but-eliminated their competition until this years X-men: Days Of Future Past became a huge critical and financial success. The Amazing Spider-man 2 however, failed to impress audiences or critics and ended up as the lowest grossing entry in the franchise. Many blamed the poor reception of the latest web-spinning adventure on Sony’s effort to establish a cinematic universe (by using multiple antagonists once again), which resulted in an overly bloated script with little room for character development. With interest in the series clearly waning with each successive instalment, Sony clearly need to re-think their »

Earlier today, Sony Pictures did what many were expecting them to do for months, shift The Amazing Spider-Man 3 into an undetermined 2018 release date slot, while moving The Sinister Six into 2016. Many wondered if this move suggested the studio was planning to scrap The Amazing Spider-Man 3 altogether, and reboot the franchise once again. However, at story from The Hollywood Reporter claims that, while the studio does want to "freshen" the brand, a reboot is not in play, with Marc Webb returning to complete his trilogy with The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
"Privately, Sony admits it is seeking to freshen the brand but has no major overhaul plans, with Webb expected to return to complete the trilogy (as Sam Raimi did with the first three films)."
We’ve seen superheroes band together as a powerhouse group in Marvel’s The Avengers and now Sony is forming their own Marvel-based team of comic book characters, but with a villainous slant. Sinister Six, a movie featuring a host of antagonists from The Amazing Spider-Man universe, has been slated for a 2016 release, and Sony has also pushed back the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 by two years.
THR reports that Sinister Six is now officially set for a November 11th, 2016 release. With The Amazing Spider-Man spinoff securing a calendar spot, Sony swapped the release date of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 from June 10th, 2016 to a date in 2018, likely in June. The delay of the third Amazing Spider-Man film will in turn postpone the original May 4th, 2018 debut date for The Amazing Spider-Man 4, but the new official release date for that entry has yet to be announced.

Looking to broaden its Spider-Man franchise, Sony has dated spin-off “Sinister Six” for Nov. 11, 2016 as the next tentpole in its key property — while moving back “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ two years to 2018.
After modest box office results for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” the studio thinks “Sinister Six” will expand the Spider-Man universe by bringing in villains, making Sony a stronger competitor against the likes of Disney/Marvel’s “Avengers” and WB’s Justice League superheroes in the coming years.
The studio has also slated “Uncharted” for June 10, 2016 — which had previously been the release schedule previously held by “The Amazing Spider-Man 3.”
Sony made the announcements Wednesday on the opening day of Comic-Con. The studio first revealed the “Sinister Six” and “Venom” spinoff projects in December, »

Looks like slightly underwhleming box office returns for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 weren’t enough to kill Sony’s plans to build an expansive superhero universe. The studio has dated The Sinister Six, a movie that features an all-star lineup of Spider-Man villains, for release on November 11th, 2016. As part of the new release date, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been bumped from its June 10th, 2016 slot by two years to May 4th, 2018.
Drew Goddard apparently delivered a take on the Sinister Six project that greatly excited execs at Sony. The Cabin in the Woods helmer is set to write and direct the spinoff, which currently has “a rough script.” Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group’s Doug Belgrad said:
“With Sinister Six in the hands of writer-director Drew Goddard, we feel extremely confident placing the film on a prime date in 2016.”
It’s still unknown which villains will feature into »

What keeps any story or idea relevant is continuous adaptation. The blanket statement that “remakes suck” discounts a lot of great remakes and ignores the fact that mankind has been retelling and remixing stories forever. A good example of reinvention is Batman, who will see his 4th cinematic incarnation and is popular worldwide and across all ages. Buck Rogers on the other hand hasn’t had a new movie since 1939 and grows more irrelevant with each passing year.
All five movies that I think are due for a remake are 15 years or older. Four of these are adaptations from other media. For each movie I break down their faults or misfortunes, the opportunity in the source material or potential in a remake, how a remake makes fiscal sense, its current and past remake status, and finally a bit of fanboy wishful thinking.

Any fan of Quentin Tarantino knows that he hasn't made a sequel to any of his movies yet, and that doesn't appear to change in the near future.

Reaction to Sony's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" was quite varied, with the ending in particular a big point of contention amongst not just fans of the comic but the film series as well.
This week, Bad Ass Digest received an early draft of Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman's script for the film and has revealed a number of surprising changes made to the final product - most notably an alternate ending.
Major Spoilers Ahead
The final film features a video of Gwen Stacy's commencement speech serving as the motivation for Peter Parker to get out of his post-Stacy death funk and become Spider-Man again after months away from the job. In the Orci and Kurtzman draft, the motivator is a surprise twist:
"The same thing happens here! But instead of finding a tape of Gwen's super on-the-nose graduation speech, Peter is approached by... his dad! Yes, Richard Parker shows »

Brooks Wheelan, we hardly knew ye… and now we may never get the chance to. The blue-eyed comedian revealed Monday night that he won’t be returning for a second year at Saturday Night Live this fall—and that the decision wasn’t his to make. In a fairly delightful tweet, Wheelan said that he’d been let go. (His exact words: “Fired from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” Which is funny enough to make me wish things hadn’t ended this way.)
Clearly, getting canned from television’s most august comedy institution must be a bit of a bummer. »

When The Amazing Spider-Man 2 kicked off the summer movie season back in May, it was derided by fans and critics alike, despite making over $200 million at the domestic box office and just over $700 million worldwide. Last week, we reported that screenwriter Roberto Orci has pulled out of The Amazing Spider-Man 3, and that Sony isn't quite sure how to move this franchise forward at this time.
Badass Digest received an early draft of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 script by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, which reveal a number of changes made from this draft to the final product, including a rather surprising alternate ending. Of course, if you haven't seen The Amazing Spider-Man 2 yet, there will be spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp... The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be directed by Marc »
The old saying goes is that if you want to win an Academy Award then the best way is to undertake playing a disabled part or portraying a famous personality in a biopic. In some cases, actors have accomplished both themes and reached their Oscar-attaining goals (see Patty Duke in The Miracle Worker or Daniel-Day Lewis in My Left Foot for instance).
In Able to Disable: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Disability-Bound Movie Characters we will look at the top movie characters that became Academy Award-winning figures within their films. Interestingly, there have been a couple of performers that were real-life disabled individuals that convincingly embodied their fictional disabled alter egos (see Harold Russell from The Best Days of Our Lives or Marlee Matlin from Children of a Lesser God).
Anyway, this selection of Able to Disable: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Disability-Bound Movie Characters are (in alphabetical order according to film title): »

Willow Smith, 13, shocked plenty of fans last year when she dropped out of the big-budget remake of Annie starring Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz -- especially since her father Will Smith is producing it -- and in a new interview with Teen Vogue, Willow reveals that it was "intuition" that led to her walking away from the high-profile part.
She was later replaced in the title role by Beasts of the Southern Wild star Quvenzhane Wallis.
Video: First Look -- Meet the New 'Annie!'
"To be honest, something inside me was just, like, 'Don't,'" she tells the magazine bluntly. "I'm very connected with my intuition."
In February 2013, Smith said that Willow dropped out so she could "just be 12" again.
