'Fletch' Remake Back on as Relativity Closes?

1 August 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Fletch remake is one that has been around for ever, as it has kicked between various directors, actors and movie studios. It's spent its life lingering in development Hell, but Relativity's recently announced bankruptcy may have just breathed new life into this beloved detective comedy. First at Mirimax, and then shuffled over to Warner Bros., Fletch finally found its home at Relativity. But like their Crow remake, it had trouble getting off the ground. Now their financial woes seem to be forcing their hand. The studio is seeking out another studio to help get Fletch moving once again.

Fletch is being included in a potential deal that will keep Relativity active through their Chapter 11 crisis. THR has the report, which sees Fletch as one of the more attractive elements in helping the corporation go through restructuring in its attempt to find new investors. As of now, the studio is »

Watch: TV Anchors Tell Off Cara Delevingne in Awkward Interview

28 July 2015 7:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: A few TV anchors were not happy with Cara Delevingne, and it made for one cringe-worthy interview.

The model and actress appeared on “Good Day Sacramento” to promote her film “Paper Towns,” and the interview grew tense as she seemed less-than-enthusiastic and the anchors called her out for it.

One of the anchors starts the interview by calling Delevingne “Carla,” and it’s all downhill from there. Her co-host then asks the actress if juggling several projects helps her focus.

“No,” she answered. “I don’t know where that comes from.”

Delevingne gave several sarcastic responses to the questions. When asked if she relates to her “Paper Towns” character, Margo, she jokingly replied, “No, I actually hate her.”

One of the co-hosts asked Delevingne if she was “just exhausted,” and she explained that the John Green movie had just had its premiere the night before, and that it was an emotional evening. »

Zach Braff talks about his Kickstarter campaign for last year’s Wish I Was Here

17 July 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After much controversy was made of his Kickstarter campaign to part-fund last year’s Wish I Was Here, actor/writer/director Zach Braff has been speaking to an American podcast about his experiences with crowd-funding and whether he would do it again if a project required it.

Speaking on “Off Camera with Sam Jones” (via IndieWire), the Scrubs star has finally opened up about the whole experience with crowdfunding the film and how many commentators on the internet spoke negatively of him after he had decided to pursue the Kickstarter avenue.

On the show, which runs at around 85-minutes, Braff speaks out about the campaign and the film itself. He said: “I felt the whole thing and the giant cultural conversation around it that it started, was misunderstood. With some Monday morning quarterbacking , I really never ever thought it would be so controversial. I really just wanted to make something with my artistic integrity intact. »

Listen: Zach Braff Reflects On Kickstarter Campaign For 'Wish I Was Here' In 85-Minute Talk

16 July 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s hard to imagine that the Zach Braff of the underrated and delightful “Scrubs” would grow into the incredibly divisive filmmaker behind “Garden State” and “Wish I Was Here.” It was Braff’s latter film, his sophomore feature, that stirred controversy after he turned to Kickstarter for funding his personal passion project. Now, in the new episode of the podcast “Off Camera with Sam Jones,” Braff finally opens up his experience with the crowdfunding site and how the internet-at-large treated him. With the luxury of nearly an hour and a half, Braff is finally able to talk about the firestorm that the Kickstarter campaign for “Wish I Was Here” created: “I felt the whole thing and the giant cultural conversation around it that it started, was misunderstood. With some Monday morning quarterbacking , I really never ever thought it would be so controversial. I really just wanted to make something with my artistic integrity intact. »

Watch a scene from James Franco and Chris O'Dowd's moving Of Mice and Men

14 July 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Digital Spy has been given an exclusive look at the National Theatre Live broadcast of the play Of Mice and Men starring Chris O'Dowd and James Franco.

The pair appeared in the show on Broadway last spring as Lennie Small and George Milton, overseen by Tony Award-winning director Anna D Shapiro.

Based on the 1937 John Steinbeck novel of the same name, the play follows Lennie (O'Dowd) and George (Franco) as they search for work in America during the Depression.

Leighton Meester also appears as the flirtatious wife of ranch owner's son Curley.

Filmed by the National Theatre Live, Of Mice and Men was shown in cinemas internationally from late 2014, with UK screenings yet to be announced.

Franco has stayed with the works of Steinbeck after the play, directing his own adaption of the novel In Dubious Battle, about California's contentious labour movement during the 1930s.

It will star Nat Wolff, »

Fox has set the supernatural drama Houdini and Doyle, centered on the relationship between Harry Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, for a Spring 2016 bow on the network.

Ron Perlman Doesn’t Want Crowdfunded Hellboy 3

19 June 2015 6:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After galvanizing fans to action with a series of tweets a couple of weeks ago, actor Ron Perlman has backtracked a little in his attempts to push forward with Hellboy 3. Though Perlman has made no secret of his desire to again play the endearingly foul-mouthed, cigar-chomping hell-spawn affectionately known as Big Red (and neither have we), the actor is now clarifying that making the movie is his, director Guillermo del Toro’s and the studio’s responsibility – not the fans’.

Speaking with Digital Spy, the star admitted to being “very, very surprised” by the huge fan reaction to his tweets, which included the following call to arms: “Anybody out there wanna see #HellboyIII as much as I do? Let’s get this muthafucka trending, y’all!” When Hellboy‘s loyal legion of followers indeed got that muthafucka trending, Perlman was rather gobsmacked. “I just sent it out like I »

Quiz: Can you guess the voice of these animated characters?

15 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

When it comes to voicing animated and stop-motion characters, who better to turn to than Hollywood’s A-list? With distinctive voices and acting styles a popular celeb can lend their vocal chops to give life to an animated being. Animators can use visual cues from the actors behind-the-scenes to add some personality, movement and facial expressions into their animated forms and let their on-screen personalities shine through. That CGI flying monkey in Oz: The Great and Powerful? That’s definitely a monkey version of Zach Braff.  And there's no separating Robin Williams from the iconic Genie in Aladdin.

This week finds the who's who of comedy voicing the emotions inside a pre-teen girl's head in Inside Out. Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader and Phyllis Smith provide the voice talent for the emotions themselves, with Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan voicing the parents. Pixar has long been known »

Koch scales back UK film operation

12 June 2015 3:37 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

UK film arm of European distributor withdraws from theatrical.

Two years after entering the competitive UK distribution space with an ambition to theatrically release 25 films per year, the UK film arm of European distributor Koch Media is to withdraw from theatrical.

Koch Media UK will instead focus on home entertainment releasing and look to consolidate its mainstay of video game distribution.

The transition will see some staff leave the company and others move across to the home entertainment department.

As part of the restructure, Koch UK will relocate its film distribution team to new company headquarters in Reading, where they will be joined by employees from the company’s Hampshire branch, which concentrates on video games.

Koch Media MD for Northern Europe Craig McNicol explained the strategy to ScreenDaily: “Our observation of the UK theatrical market has been that over the last couple of years there has clearly been a paradigm shift.

Let’s All Imagine an Alternate Clueless Cast, Starring Reese Witherspoon, Ben Affleck, and Dave Chappelle

9 June 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

What's better than playing "What if?" castings with nostalgic '90s classics? Vanity Fair provides the fodder for our collective imagination in this oral history of Clueless, where writer and director Amy Heckerling, Fox casting director Carrie Frazier, and the rest of the cast discuss the casting process, which could have led to some mind-blowing combinations. Heckerling had her heart set on Alicia Silverstone, but Fox wanted her to consider other options, like Reese Witherspoon, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, or Keri Russell. For the part of Josh, Cher's stepbrother-lover, they looked at Ben Affleck and Zach Braff before settling on Paul Rudd. For the part of Murray (played by Donald Faison), they looked at Terrence Howard (!) and Dave Chappelle (!!). You may imagine an alternate timeline where Dave Chappelle went on to star on Scrubs.Cher: At the behest of the studio, Heckerling considered the following women for the role that »

'Clueless' Casting Secrets Revealed -- See Which Stars Missed Out on the Big Roles!

9 June 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

"Clueless" was one of the defining movies of the '90s -- and now, 20 years later, Vanity Fair has revealed some major casting secrets!  While director Amy Heckerling says she "had her heart set on Alicia Silverstone" from the beginning, she explains that Fox wanted her to explore other options for Cher. "I saw Alicia Witt, the redheaded [actress]. And who else? Tiffani Thiessen. The one that -- she was in that show and she cut her hair and everybody was mad? Keri Russell, yes," she tells the mag. "Then they go, 'You’ve got to see the girl in [Flesh and Bone].' I never got to see her. I guess she was off on other things. That turned out to be Gwyneth Paltrow." Even Angelina Jolie was initially considered for the lead role! "She was too knowing for what was needed for Clueless," Fox casting director Carrie Frazier reveals. "Angelina never came in [to audition] for the project. »

Celebs Cheer for Ireland After Gay-Marriage Vote

23 May 2015 3:46 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Miley Cyrus, of all people, probably said it best: "Fuck yeah Ireland!" After a nationwide vote yesterday, the country became the first in the world to legalize gay marriage by popular mandate. Voters turned out in droves and the referendum passed with overwhelming support. At the very least, it's made Colin Farrell a really happy Irishman: "Today Ireland has opened up her heart in a way that the whole world will feel. How we have changed our fortune in 24 hours, how we have lit the way, how we have guaranteed a brighter and more loving future for all who call this beautiful land home. Bravo citizens of Ireland." And from J.K. Rowling to Zach Braff, many celebrities took to Twitter to celebrate Ireland's big day: »

Nina Dobrev Donned Her Fangs to Talk The Vampire Diaries on Conan

12 May 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Vampire Diaries' sixth season finale airs on Thursday, and that means only one episode left with star Nina Dobrev. She stopped by Conan to chat about the series and to show off her impressive flexibility. Though she doesn't get into details about the finale (we have pictures!), she does talk about filming sex scenes with her mom on the set and how awkward vampire fangs actually are. She even puts on her fangs - well, Katherine's fangs. Take a look at the video below to see her pique Zach Braff's interest with some sexy stories. And here she is teaching Conan O'Brien to make a vampire face. »

‘Da Sweet Blood of Jesus’ VOD Review

11 May 2015 9:31 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Stephen Tyron Williams, Zaraah AbrahamsRami MalekElvis Nolasco, Thomas Jefferson Byrd, Joie Lee, Felicia Pearson, Jeni Perillo, Katherine Borowitz, Donna Dixon, Chiz Schultz, Lauren Macklin, Steven Hauck, Stephen Henderson, Rafael Osorio | Written and Directed by Spike Lee

The respected filmmaker hitting Kickstarter for help phenomenon seems to have died down over the last year or so but along with Zach Braff, Spike Lee was certainly one of the highlights of this short-lived trend. Shaking the virtual tip jar towards a great many people, myself included, he managed to get together a budget of just under $1.5 million, including a $10,000 donation from Steven Soderbergh and so presents us with Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, a somewhat surprise remake of 70’s indie flick Ganja & Hess. Even with my meagre donation, I think it was $10, it’s sad to say that I feel ripped off and I suspect most will.

NBC renews 'Undateable' for an all-live season

8 May 2015 9:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Normally I get annoyed by these piecemeal renewals that force an endless string of tiny stories, but this is a good one. NBC has renewed "Undateable" for a third season, successfully avoiding the ignominy of clearing out its entire comedy slate. But much more interesting than the mere renewal for the comedy is the confirmation that "Undateable" will go live for all episodes next season. Unless somebody wants to remind me of an alternative, "Undateable" will be the first scripted show to go live on a regular basis for a full season since "Roc" did it back in 1992. Much of the appeal of "Undateable" was always based on liveness. Before the first season premiered, executive producer Bill Lawrence and much of his stand-up-heavy cast went on the road for a live promotional tour. That tour was at least somewhat responsible for a solid debut last summer and a strong enough »
