Super Troopers 2 Fundraiser Made $4.4 Million

25 April 2015 12:07 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Broken Lizard, the cult comedy troupe responsible for Club Dread and Beerfest, will be making a sequel to their beloved Super Troopers.  Variety reports that Broken Lizard’s Indiegogo campaign not only surpassed its $2 million goal, it earned a whopping $4.4 million, usurping Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here as the second-most successful crowdsourced film campaign ever, behind Veronica Mars, which made $5.7 million. Desperation may be a stinky cologne, but crowdsourcing is totally legit. As an incentive for donations, the troupe released its first film, Tin Foil Monkey Agenda, exclusively to contributors. The original Super Troopers, made for a miniscule $1.2 million in 2001, earned $23 million at the box office. It depicts the misadventures of a handful of inept (but utterly lovable) Vermont state troopers, who spend their time filling lockers with shaving cream and eating maple syrup. The original five dopey Vermont state troopers — Jay Chandrasekhar, »

‘Super Troopers 2′ Raises $4.4 Million Total in Fundraising Campaign

25 April 2015 9:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Broken Lizard comedy troupe has waged the second most successful crowdfunding campaign for a movie, taking in $4.4 million in 30 days to raise production funds for “Super Troopers 2.”

The Indiegogo campaign, funded by over 50,000 contributors, ended at midnight Friday with 77% of the $5.7 million record for crowdfunding for a film, set in by the “Veronica Mars” movie on Kickstarter in 2013. It raised 42% more than the $3.1 million for Zach Braff’s “Wish I Was Here,” which had been the second-largest crowdfunding effort until earlier this month when the Alan Tudyk-Nathan Fillion project “Con Man” raised $3.16 million.

The “Super Troopers” met the initial goal of $2 million in 26 hours, assuring that the sequel will go into production this summer, 14 years after the original “Super Troopers” was released. Fox Searchlight had agreed to release the sequel if the $2 million goal was met.

Alex of Venice | Review

17 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Touch of Venice: Messina’s Understated, Observational Debut

There’s much to admire in actor Chris Messina’s assured, astutely observed directorial debut, Alex of Venice. Namely its central performance from Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who carries this understated character study that rather uneventfully charts a workaholic woman’s mildly difficult navigation through the denial that her marriage is over. As written by its trio of writers (with Jessica Goldberg joined by first time screenwriters Katie Nehara and Justin Shilton), its dramatic possibilities are severely downplayed, instead attempting to reflect meaning off intertextual echoes borrowed from Chekov’s The Cherry Orchard (the play being staged within the film).

An attorney for an eco-advocacy group, Alex (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is left reeling when her high school sweetheart husband George (Messina) abruptly announces he’s unhappy with their marriage. A taken-for-granted stay-at-home dad, who cares for both their young son and Alex’s »

Fletch reboot gets new home, Jason Sudeikis in talks to star

16 April 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After many failed attempts to get the franchise up and running again, comedy-caper Fletch has found a new home, with Relativity Studios snapping up the rights from Warner Bros.

In the two previous films, 1985’s Fletch and the 1989 sequel Fletch Lives, Chevy Chase played the title role, but in the new version it looks like Horrible Bosses star Jason Sudeikis is set to take over, with the comedian reportedly in negotiations with the studio.

Gregory McDonald’s 11 mystery books, the first of which was published in 1974, center on a reporter named I.M. Fletcher who juggles writing exposes while avoiding headaches caused by his two ex-wives.

Previous attempts to revive the franchise nearly came to fruition in the early 2000’s when Kevin Smith was attached to direct with Zach Braff (Scrubs) in the title role, before both left the project, which was then called Fletch Won.

Fletch remake switches studios, Jason Sudeikis still starring

15 April 2015 10:37 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jason Sudeikis is taking over the role of Fletch from Chevy Chase, as the new movie moves forward...

The reboot of the Fletch movies has been mooted for some time, with Kevin Smith signed up way back in 2000 set to write and direct a reboot. Smith would remain attached until late 2005, with casting proving to be a major problem in getting a new Fletch moving.

Then, in 2007, Zach Braff was in line to play young Fletch, for Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence. Yet Lawrence left the film in the middle of the year, and Steve Pink (who has since directed the Hot Tub Time Machine movies) landed the job.

Fletch remains in development hell though, with the project landing at Warner Bros in 2011. It wasn't until 2013 that it got somewhere with a new Fletch, though, when it locked down Jason Sudeikis to take on the lead role.

The latest update, then? »

Academy Award winner Alan Arkin (Little Miss Sunshine) is set to join the cast of Going in Style, the New Line Cinema remake of the 1979 caper comedy starring George Burns.

Fellow Oscar winners Sir Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman, who team for the sixth time after The Dark Knight Trilogy and Now You See Me and its now-shooting sequel, have already been cast in the film, which is to be directed by Zach Braff (Wish I Was Here, Garden State). Ted Melfi (St. Vincent) has penned the remake, which will see Braff direct someone else’s material for the first time on film. Donald De Line is the films producer, with original film producer Tony Bill also on board.

The 1979 pic, directed by Martin Brest (Beverly Hills Cop, Midnight Run) also starred Art Carney and Lee Strasberg and followed three retirees who wear Groucho Marx glasses to execute a bank heist. »

Week in Review: ‘Jurassic World’ gets a clip and some criticism from Joss Whedon

2015 MTV Movie Awards, Latest Movie News

Maybe the second most anticipated movie of the summer is Jurassic World, in part because Hollywood’s newest, biggest star, Chris Pratt, gets the chance to headline yet another blockbuster. But if you watched the trailer some weeks ago, you might’ve noticed how grim, self-serious and decidedly not Andy Dwyer/Starlord-esque charming and funny Pratt’s character was.

The first sigh of relief came this week when the first clip for the film was released this week, which you can watch above. Pratt is playfully flirting with Bryce Dallas-Howard in the scene, hinting at why the two of them never had a second date. Charming and funny? Maybe. Badly written? Arguably. Cliche? Probably. But is it sexist?

Joss Whedon, director of the first most anticipated blockbuster of the summer, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, seems to think so, as he tweeted »

Alan Arkin is joining Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine to star in New Line’s reinvention of the 1979 George Burns caper comedy “Going in Style.”

New Line had been in talks with Dustin Hoffman for the part late last year. Zach Braff, who helmed the Kickstarter-funded comedy “Wish I Was Here,” will direct from Ted Melfi’s script, with shooting set to begin Aug. 3 in New York City.

Warner-based Donald De Line is producing and Tony Bill, who produced the original film, is exec producing.

"Super Troopers 2" managed to raise more than $2 million on Indiegogo in just 24 hours.

Forget Indiana, Zach Braff and Donald Faison Will Make Pizza For Your Gay Wedding

6 April 2015 4:50 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Zach Braff recently joined the slew of celebrities and high-power individuals who are speaking out against Indiana's new Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Along with the photo above, he tagged Donald Faison in a hilarious tweet that said, "If you really and truly want pizza for your gay wedding in Indiana... We will make it for you." The tweet refers to an incendiary move made by Memories Pizza just last week. It's a small restaurant in Indiana that refused to serve pizza at homosexual weddings, citing the state's new and controversial law as justification for its actions. Zach, of course, isn't the first celebrity to address the incident or the law itself. Rihanna called the whole thing "bullsh*t" during her concert in Indianapolis, Miley Cyrus tweeted about stirring things up, and plenty of others are speaking out in their own ways. We're thinking Zach's response just as epic as the »
