NBC has scheduled new reality show I Can Do That to follow their biggest summer series, America's Got Talent. Will viewers stay tuned and bring big ratings so it will be renewed for a second season? Or, will this new show flop and be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.

The celebrities include dancer and choreographer Cheryl Burke; recording artists Ciara, Joe Jonas and Nicole Scherzinger; stand-up comedian Jeff Dye; and actor Alan Ritchson.

The actor and comedian performs the Pharell Williams hit “Happy” in a preview of his upcoming performance against Queen Latifah on Spike’s “Lip Sync Battle.” Wayans rocked Williams’ trademark hat as he worked the crowd.

This Salt-n-Pepa 'Lip Sync Battle' Could Use a Bit More Spice

22 May 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Maybe the "Lip Sync Battle" drama bar was just too high after Julianne Hough writhed to "I Just Had Sex" (in front of her brother!) and Stephen Merchant shoved a sock down his leather chaps to get extra "Dirrty." We had high hopes for Salt-n-Pepa's May 21 battle -- and they were Ok, but they did not push it far enough. They did not talk about sex, baby. It was relatively bland.

Cheryl "Salt" James started Round 1 with Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone." Sandra "Pepa" Denton countered with Katy Perry's "Firework":

Too tame. Not nearly the crazy we've come to expect.

In Round 2, they both upped their games and brought in back-up dancers. Salt had a good run with "It's Tricky" by Run-d.M.C. but Pepa won with her very '70s version of Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive." This round was more successful, »

Im Global lines up ‘Samarkand’

12 May 2015 2:32 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Tom Hardy, Cannes-bound with Mad Max: Fury Road, is lining up to star in what would be a red-hot market title as an Sas veteran with Ptsd in Journey To Samarkand.

Im Global is understood to be on board as financier and will start talks with buyers on the Croisette. Im Global did not return calls about the project, which will reunite CEO Stuart Ford with the star of Locke.

Hardy will play a troubled former soldier in London who observes suspicious activity and must find out if it represents a bomb threat.

Im Global’s slate includes Spike Lee comedy musical Chiraq with Kanye West and Jennifer Hudson and The Circle, a cyber-thriller to star Ex Machina lead Alicia Vikander.

Ford and new president of international sales and distribution Michael Rothstein are also talking up another reunion, with Marlon Wayans, on the spoof Fifty Shades Of Black.

The company announced last week it had found its lead »

Marlon Wayans Talks '50 Shades of Black' - "I Like Sex. I Like Comedy. And This Combines Both. It's an Homage to the Original"

11 May 2015 4:29 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

After spoofing the found footage horror movie with his "Haunted House" pair of films, Marlon Wayans now plans to do the same with erotic romance drama, with "Fifty Shades of Black" (you just had to know he'd use that as the title). Details on plot aren't public, although, really, it's a spoof of an existing movie, so anything probably goes. But Wayans doesn't necessarily like the term "spoof," as he shares in the video interview below with Comedy Hype. It's more of a humorous homage to the original film, which he hopes both fans of his, as well as fans of "50 Shades of Grey" will appreciate. Im Global will finance the film (they got behind »

11 May 2015 11:03 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marlon Wayans, the star and writer of A Haunted House, is leaving horror behind to spoof Fifty Shades of Grey in a new big-screen comedy.

Wayans is teaming up with White Chicks and A Haunted House producer Rick Alvarez once again for the humorously titled Fifty Shades of Black.

Also returning for the new spoof moive will be A Haunted House director Michael Tiddes.

In an official statement, Wayans said: "Sex and comedy go hand-in-hand and I'm looking forward to having fun with this project. It's amazing when a film of this caliber comes along begging to be made fun of.

"I'm really happy to be doing what I love with people I love to do it with. That double entendre was intentional."

His most recent horror movie parody A Haunted House 2 - which also starred Jaime Pressly, Cedric the Entertainer and Gabriel Iglesias - was released in April »

Im Global Cannes-bound with 'Chiraq'

10 May 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Stuart Ford’s sales team will commence talks with international buyers on the Croisette on Spike Lee’s comedy musical to feature Kanye West and Jennifer Hudson.

Chiraq – a late prestige addition to the Im Global slate on the eve of the market – is Lee’s reimagining of the ancient Greek comedy Lysistrata.

The story will centre on a woman’s quest to end gang warfare in Chicago. Sam Jackson and John Cusack are also lining up in the hot title.

Sure to cause even more of a stir is the fact that Amazon is on board for the Us release.

Screen understands the fledgling Amazon Original Movies is plotting a theatrical release and could be about to announce Chiraq in Cannes along with further details of its inaugural slate, which head of production Ted Hope is assembling.

'Fifty Shades of Black' Comedy Spoof Is Coming, Check Out Pantless Poster

8 May 2015 3:35 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

You could argue that "Fifty Shades of Grey" is already a comedy spoof of itself, but now Marlon Wayans is getting in on the act with "Fifty Shades of Black." Wayans is no stranger to these kinds of parodies -- see "Scary Movie," don't see "Scary Movie 2" -- and "Fifty Shades" has enough juicy material to make a good spoof.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wayans will star and write with Rick Alvarez, with production starting soon and an early 2016 release planned. This project will reunite the "Haunted House" franchise team, so ... just know that going in. Wayans said, in a statement, "We're excited to be back in business with Im Global doing our comedic remix of this movie. Sex and comedy go hand-in-hand and I'm looking forward to having fun with this project. It's amazing when a film of this caliber comes along begging to be made fun of. »

Marlon Wayans Is Spoofing Fifty Shades Of Grey, Of Course

7 May 2015 5:26 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Love him or hate him, Marlon Wayans has been arguably one of the biggest names in spoof movies of the last 15 years. As such, it should be no surprise that he is planning to once again return to the genre - only instead of horror movies, this time around he plans on poking fun at Fifty Shades of Grey. The Hollywood Reporter says that Wayans is teaming up with producer-writer Rick Alvarez to make a new movie called Fifty Shades of Black that will directly spoof the hit romantic drama from earlier this year. At this point in time, very little is known about the project, but it has been confirmed that Wayans plans to star in the film as himself - presumably playing the Christian Grey-type role that was played by Jamie Dornan in the original movie. This is far from Marlon Wayans' first go-round with Rick Alvarez, »
