Will Ferrell Finally Reveals the ‘Step Brothers’ Sequel Storyline That Never Got Made

Will Ferrell Finally Reveals the ‘Step Brothers’ Sequel Storyline That Never Got Made
Will Ferrell fans are no doubt shocked that a movie like “Daddy’s Home” is getting a sequel before such favorites as “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” and “Step Brothers.” The latter was an R-rated box office success in 2008 and gained near-legendary status by becoming an endlessly re-watchable favorite on cable television networks like FX. The film, which starred Ferrell opposite John C. Reilly as a pair of grown men still living with their parents, seemed like a logical choice for a sequel, and yet the stars and director Adam McKay have never moved forward with one.

AFM: Mid-Market Generating Mix of Optimism and Uncertainty

AFM: Mid-Market Generating Mix of Optimism and Uncertainty
As the 38th American Film Market reaches the half-way point, a mixed picture has emerged that reflects the profound changes in the movie industry.

Buyers offer the usual refrain about the seeming lack of big buzz titles as the industry continues to reel from fresh revelations in Hollywood’s sexual assault scandal — a topic that dominated conversations at Afm headquarters at the Loews Hotel in Santa Monica. Additionally, domestic box office for 2017 has been lagging by an alarming 5%.

But notable deals have closed, such as Paramount’s announcement Friday that it was buying the comedy “The Book Club,” starring Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen; Emmy winner Uzo Aduba joining the drama “The Virginian”; and Lionsgate buying five Studiocanal titles include Liam Neeson’s “Hard Powder” and the Colin Firth-Rachel Weisz drama “The Mercy.”

Michael Ryan, partner at London-based Gfm Films and chairman of Afm organizer Independent Film and Television Alliance, admits

Jane Fonda, 79, Goes Unretouched on the Cover of Town & Country

Jane Fonda, 79, Goes Unretouched on the Cover of Town & Country
Earlier this year Helen Mirren, 72, appeared on the cover of Allure and pioneered a new way of embracing her age by urging people to stop using the term “anti-aging.” And now, Jane Fonda, is making an equally powerful statement by appearing on the cover of Town & Country completely unretouched.

The 79-year-old went all-natural for the November issue appearing on the black-and-white cover wearing a collared shirt, oversize earrings and a chainlink necklace.

Fonda has been a L’Oréal spokesperson since her first campaign in 2014 and just walked in the brand’s Paris show (alongside Mirren!). She’s been open and

‘Finding Your Roots’: Larry David and Bernie Sanders Are Related, and More Shocking Revelations From PBS’ Ancestry Series

‘Finding Your Roots’: Larry David and Bernie Sanders Are Related, and More Shocking Revelations From PBS’ Ancestry Series
Although Larry David had impersonated Senator Bernie Sanders brilliantly multiple times on “Saturday Night Live,” the men’s resemblance was written off as nothing but a joke. After all, they’re both older Jewish men from New York. Of course they’re similar.

On Tuesday night’s premiere of PBS’ “Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.” though, they discovered they have far more in common than just looks. After running a DNA test on the two, host Gates revealed that they share significantly long sequences of identical DNA. In short, they’re related.

The Last Man on Earth: Season Four Ratings

Despite continuing low ratings, Fox renewed The Last Man on Earth TV show for a fourth season. Season four can be a dangerous time for low-rated TV series. While 100 episodes still may be the gold standard for syndication, in recent years, packages with 88 episodes or so (i.e. four seasons of around 22 episodes each) have sold well. However, this sitcom has had shorter than average seasons. A total of only 49 episodes were produced during its first three installments. Could that low count help it snag another pickup? Will The Last Man on Earth be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned. A Fox post-apocalyptic comedy, The Last Man on Earth stars Will Forte, Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, Mary Steenburgen, and Cleopatra Coleman.

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Season 9 Premiere Finally Reveals What Larry Has Been Doing For the Last Six Years

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Season 9 Premiere Finally Reveals What Larry Has Been Doing For the Last Six Years
Few television series — especially those just unspooling their long-awaited ninth season — would be bold enough to trade on the concept that absolutely nothing has changed over the intervening years. Characters grow, situations change. But Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is not just any television series.

Six years after the HBO series wrapped its eighth season, Hollywood’s favorite malcontent is back, and he’s the exact same curmudgeon audiences love (and his friends love to hate). The Larry David of “Curb” doesn’t evolve, and never learns, and HBO has even made that the backbone of the show’s marketing campaign: This season’s official trailer literally boasts that “nothing has changed.”

Nonetheless, it was a long hiatus, and although the cameras weren’t rolling, surely Larry got into plenty of misunderstandings and stepped into countless of awkward situations during the intervening years. The last season saw him and

‘The Last Man on Earth’ Review: Season 4 Starts with a Bang, a Cameo, and More Familiar, Twisted Tricks

‘The Last Man on Earth’ Review: Season 4 Starts with a Bang, a Cameo, and More Familiar, Twisted Tricks
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “The Last Man on Earth” Season 4, Episode 1, “M.U.B.A.R.”]

Like watching two sea-doos slowly arcing through the ocean on an unlikely, yet inevitable collision course, “The Last Man on Earth” Season 4 premiere offered a few tantalizing possibilities, but ultimately felt stuck on a predictable path.

There were plenty of callbacks from seasons past: The episode began by answering the Season 3 cliffhanger, in which Pamela (recurring guest star Kristen Wiig) saved Phil “Tandy” Miller (Will Forte) and the group’s lives by shooting Pat (Mark Boone Junior) before he could take out any of the other survivors. Though the visor-splattering burst of blood may have made it look like Pat was dunzo, he recovered long enough to put a bullet in Rear Admiral Roy Billups, Pamela’s former lover played by another one-and-done mega guest star, Jack Black.
