Funny Fairy: Melissa McCarthy is playing Tinker Bell in a new comedy

19 November 2014 7:01 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Melissa McCarthy is getting wings. The "Tammy" star is teaming up with director Shawn Levy ("Night at the Museum") for an untitled comedy-adventure in which McCarthy will play Tinker Bell, the fairy made famous in Walt Disney's 1953 animated classic "Peter Pan," according to Deadline. Nicholas Stoller ("Neighbors") will write the script based on a "fresh take" hatched up by McCarthy and Levy, who are also producing the film. No other details are available at this time. McCarthy can currently be seen in "St. Vincent" opposite Bill Murray; coming up she has the Paul Feig comedy "Spy" co-starring Rose Byrne and Jason Statham. Earlier this year, her latest starring vehicle "Tammy" brought in more than $100 million worldwide despite garnering poor reviews. What do you think of the idea of McCarthy as Tinker Bell? Let us know in the comments. »

Details of the 2009 Ghostbusters 3 Script Revealed

19 November 2014 7:21 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Bloody-Disgusting got their hands on a copy of the Ghostbusters 3 script written by Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg back in 2009. This version of the script will never be made into a movie, so I wouldn’t worry about any spoilers. Bridesmaids director Paul Feig has taken the reigns and is set to direct and co-write a Ghostbusters reboot that will feature a female cast of Ghostbusters.

The script definitely sounds like it would have made for an interesting movie. The site did a breakdown of the story and they reveal all the details you need to know about what this film would have been. I’ve included a rundown of the film below with a few excepts from the report.

There are some aspects that I like about this, and other things that I don’t. One thing is for sure is that it doesn’t capture the spirit of the original film. »

New Ghostbusters 3 script leak details what could have been

19 November 2014 1:09 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Before director Paul Feig took the reigns oo the Ghostbusters franchise and decided to completely reboot it, there were . . . many scripts for the ill-fated Ghostbusters 3. Towards the end, The Office scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky were the last to work on the script when it featured the original cast.  The most recent leak represents an iteration of that script where Egon was very much a presence in the story (before Harold Ramis' passing, of course).

Ghostbusters 3 Script From 2009 Has Leaked Online

18 November 2014 2:48 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  In 2008, Sony hired Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, writers from NBC's The Office, to pen a script for Ghostbusters 3. In 2013, Dan Aykroyd praised the script for its humor and it appeared Sony was close to giving it the greenlight even without Bill Murray's participation. But in the beginning of 2014, Harold Ramis suddenly passed away and Sony became concerned about having a third film with only two of the original Ghostbusters. They decided to go in a completely different direction by hiring Paul Feig ("Bridesmaids") to direct a female led Ghostbusters reboot. Even though Ghostbusters 3 will never happen we can now see what might have been. A second draft of Stupnitsky and Eisenberg's Ghostbusters 3 script, written in 2009, has leaked and Bloody-Disgusting has written a detailed review of it. Keep in mind, when it was written the screenwriters included Bill Murray's character 'Peter Venkman,' not knowing »

Watch: Charlie Brown Is Back in the First Trailer for 'The Peanuts Movie'

18 November 2014 1:17 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

With the holidays right around the corner, there’s no doubt that many of us are already yearning for our annual viewing of A Charlie Brown Christmas – and with Snoopy and the gang already in our thoughts, this is as good a time as any for producer Paul Feig to give us a sneak peek at his upcoming feature film The Peanuts Movie. Update: Watch the first trailer for The Peanuts Movie below... Feig recently chatted with USA Today about the new movie, revealing that he wants to stay true to the beloved comic strips and TV specials created by Charles Schulz. That means we won’t be seeing new characters, or updated modernized takes on Charlie Brown, Linus or any of the rest of the Peanuts gang. Go ahead and breathe your sigh of relief here.

‘Peanuts’ Trailer: Does It Pass The Uncanny Valley Test?

18 November 2014 1:15 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The big-screen update of Charles Schulz’s famed Peanuts comic strip characters has been touted by Fox as the first time the iconic gang had been on a big screen in CGI and 3D. It’s a daunting task and an ambitious effort from Ice Age studio Blue Sky and 20th Century Fox Animation, and it counts aficionado Paul Feig among its producers — the Bridesmaids helmer’s cred goes a long way, and he calls Peanuts his Star Wars growing up. But the first full trailer that dropped today does beg the question: Will fans miss the squiggly pencil days when the shiny and crystal-clear CG pic hits theaters on November 6, 2015?

Watch: New Trailer for ‘Peanuts’ Movie

18 November 2014 12:43 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Snoopy dominates in a new teaser trailer for the animated “Peanuts” movie, due out Nov. 6, 2015, for 20th Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios.

The computer animated 3D movie, based on Charles Schulz’s iconic strip, opens with Snoopy sleeping on his doghouse with Vince Guaraldi’s classic “Linus and Lucy” theme playing as Woodstock and his bird friends work on Christmas decor.

Snoopy then wakes up in Paris as his World War I flying ace in pursuit of the Red Baron, then returns to the initial setting. The trailer concludes with a brief scene of Charlie Brown coming into a movie theater to see the movie.

Fox acquired the feature film rights in 2012 to Schulz’s comic strip and set “Horton Hears a Who!” and “Ice Age: Continental Drift” helmer Steve Martino to direct the toon.

Schulz’s son and grandson, Craig and Bryan Schulz, are writing the script with Cornelius Uliano. »

Brilliant Teaser Trailer For Peanuts Arrives

18 November 2014 9:11 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s not opening in theatres for another 12 months, but that doesn’t mean we can’t revel in the beauty of the wonderful Peanuts teaser trailer that has just been released. As the first theatrical Peanuts movie in 35 years, this glorious return to the world of Charlie Brown and Snoopy is sure to stir all kinds of feelings in those that recall the TV specials, while creating a whole generation of new fans.

Created by Charles M Schulz, Peanuts was originally a syndicated comic strip which ran from 1950 until 2000, when Schulz had prepared to retire due to ill health, but sadly passed away. At the height of its popularity – though, thanks to continued re-prints, it has never really waned – the strip was printed in more than 2,600 newspapers with a collective readership of 355 million.

The story centred around Charlie Brown – a nervous boy, lacking in self-confidence, and having little experience of anything. »

Snoopy Flies through the CG-Animated Skies in First Full-Length The Peanuts Movie Trailer

18 November 2014 7:08 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios have released the first full-length The Peanuts Movie trailer for the CG-animated adaptation of the beloved, iconic characters created by the late Charles Schulz.  Directed by Steve Martino (Horton Hears a Who!) and produced by Paul Feig, the story follows "the little round-headed boy with the indomitable optimism on a quest to get something he’s sure he needs, even though he discovers he’s pretty Ok just as he is."  Even though the trailer uses a pop song, it's clear that it's part of the trailer and not part of the movie.  The movie looks not only charming, but more importantly, that it's keeping the tone of the comic and TV specials.  That's the real challenge, and I'm very encouraged by this new trailer. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  The Peanuts Movie opens in 3D on November 6, 2015 Trailer via 20th Century Fox. »

Watch: New 'Peanuts' Trailer Takes Snoopy to Paris

18 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Fox has premiered the first official trailer for the new Peanuts movie, an animated feature that will take the hand-drawn creations of Charles Schulz into the world of 3D and CGI and I have to admit, it doesn't look half-bad... at least in terms of visuals. In fact, I'm quite curious to see how this thing turns out. The trailer is light on plot as it simply brings the new images we saw yesterday to life, featuring Snoopy in his Wwi garb as he takes his doghouse into Paris in a battle against the Red Baron, but the general family friendly tone of Charlie Brown is still intact. The film, from producer Paul Feig and director Steve Martino (Ice Age: Continental Drift), hits theaters on November 6, 2015. Watch the trailer below. sb id="1172221" height="360" width="640" »

Good Grief! Check Out These New Peanuts Images

17 November 2014 2:31 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lost somewhere in the great morass of superhero movies, sci-fi dramas, and Oscar-bait prestige pictures, I managed to miss the fact that producer Paul Feig and director Steve Martino were making a Peanuts film! With a new batch of images being released today, I have to say that the new cinematic version of Charles Schulz’s classic comic strip looks pretty true to the spirit of the originals.

One of the great dangers of adapting a beloved strip to the cinematic milieu – even one as oft adapted as Peanuts – is the chance that the filmmakers will try to turn something sweet and genuine into a hip cash-grab. Yes, Snoopy will sell us insurance, but at least all the TV specials featuring Charlie Brown and the gang have been largely in keeping with the bittersweet spirit of the comic strip. With these images, it’s nice to see that Peanuts will maintain that spirit. »

17 November 2014 1:34 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s been a while since we.ve seen Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang. The last Peanuts comic strip was published nearly 15 years ago, shortly before Charles Schultz.s passing, and the last original TV special aired in 2011. Fortunately, the beloved comic strip characters will be returning soon when The Peanuts Movie hits theaters on November 6, 2015. In the meantime, 20th Century Fox and Peanuts Worldwide has released new images of protagonist Charlie Brown and the rest of the cast to tide fans over. Accompanying USA Today's interview with producers Paul Feig and Craig Schultz are official stills from the film, featuring first looks at Linus, Lucy, Peppermint Patty and many others. Earlier this year a teaser trailer gave us our first glimpse at Snoopy and Charlie Brown, but these new pictures give fans an idea of what most of the main characters will look like »

Great new Peanuts images from the big screen Charles Schulz adaptation

17 November 2014 12:15 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

If the first images and trailer didn’t gain your trust, we have few new shots from the upcoming adaptation of the classic comic strip Peanuts to hopefully put some fears to rest. While a lot of people were understandably worried when they heard that their beloved Peanuts was heading to the big screen, Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), a producer on the project, told us "Snoopy will not be rapping, no one will be twerking”, and that pretty much did it for me.

Expect 'Peanuts' To Be Very Old School

17 November 2014 9:37 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

When Peanuts arrives in theaters on November 6, 2015, don't expect a "modern spin on a classic." Aside from its 3-D, computer generated trappings, the film will very much be a classic Peanuts story. Producer Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and the rest of the crew responsible for the film want assure audiences that they're going for something much more timeless with this film than other modern reboots we've seen in recent years.

In a talk with USA Today, all of the folks behind Peanuts say that this will be a movie that very much celebrates the same themes as the original specials and comic strips which have worked their way into our pop culture for so long. Director Steve Martino thinks there's always been a potent message of optimism in Charlie Brown's adventures, and that's something he wants to bring to a cinematic landscape where snark and cynicism are ruling the roost.

New Peanuts Movie Images Show a Refreshing Reverence for Charles Schulz’ Iconic Comic Strip

17 November 2014 9:10 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox and Blue Sky have released new images from the animated adaptation of Charles Schulz' classic comic strip Peanuts.  The movie is a little under a year away, and producer Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Freaks and Geeks) tells USA Today that if the film had a title closer to other Peanuts adaptations, he would probably call it "Don't Give Up, Charlie Brown!".  According to USA Today, "The story follows the little round-headed boy with the indomitable optimism on a quest to get something he's sure he needs, even though he discovers he's pretty Ok just as he is."  I assume he needs a trustworthy football holder. Hit the jump to see the new Peanuts movie images and to learn more about the film.  Peanuts opens November 6, 2015.  A cast has yet to be announced, but it's suspected that the adult characters will be voiced by Muffled Trombone.
