Jay Roach to Direct Action Comedy 'Mad Dogs'

7 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. has picked up the action-comedy package Mad Dogs, setting Jay Roach to direct. The project is loosely based on the novel of the same name by Three Days of the Condor author James Grady, with the studio planning an action-comedy update of the 1970s conspiracy thriller genre, with a tone that is described as a cross between One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and The Hangover. Wes Jones, whose screenplay Young Republicans topped the Black List in 2010, has been set to write the screenplay adaptation.

Mad Dogs will use the book as a "jumping off point," centering on three U.S. intelligence operatives who have been deemed crazy by their superiors, thanks to their dysfunctional lifestyles. They are sent to a secret government-run mental hospital for spies, where they become convinced that someone is trying to kill them. They try to hatch an escape plan, but when it »

If you’re going to try and get Selena Gomez to go to prom, you have to go big, right?

Well that’s exactly what Cole Labrant did.

The senior from Enterprise, Ala. spent 10 days making an over-the-top, hilarious promposal video complete with lip syncing to Selena’s songs -- and even a few from her Bff Taylor Swift

Watch: Bryan Cranston Help a High School Kid Get a Date To Prom

Cole also showed off his serious dance moves in corn fields, on train tracks, and in one number that involved a boy band routine. And we can’t forget to mention the beach scene of him confessing his love for Selena while drawing her name in the sand.

For those who are Internet-savvy, you may know Cole is part of the popular Vine group, Dem White Boyz, which have over 5 million followers, so naturally they had to make a Vine about the prom.

"Better Call Saul" Updates

14 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek more clips of footage from AMC's "Breaking Bad" prequel series "Better Call Saul", debuting February 8, 2015, starring Bob Odenkirk reprising his role as Irish 'criminal' lawyer 'Jimmy McGill' aka 'Saul Goodman':

"...set six years before 'Saul Goodman' meets 'Walter White', 'Jimmy McGill' is a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny...

"...and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. 

"Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is 'Mike Ehrmantraut' (Jonathan Banks). The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts 'criminal' in 'Criminal lawyer'..."

"He seems to be a pretty happy-go-lucky guy, and that makes him everything that 'Walter White' is not, " said creator Vince Gilliagn about Saul Goodman, "...and that also makes for tricky drama. When I say drama, even in a comedy, you want drama, you want tension and conflict, and a character that at heart seems at peace with himself is intrinsically undramatic. »

Do you need to watch 'Breaking Bad' before 'Better Call Saul'?

27 January 2015 2:10 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Those who have watched and loved Breaking Bad are likely plagued with a question going into its origin series, Better Call Saul: Can Saul live up to Vince Gilligan’s magnum opus? In contrast, those who haven't watched Breaking Bad (shame on you) are likely plagued with a question of a very different kind: Do I need to watch Breaking Bad before watching Better Call Saul? The origin series will track debauched criminal lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) in the time prior to establishing his strip-mall law office in Albuquerque. There, he eventually gives legal aid to Breaking Bad »

Breaking Bob: With Better Call Saul, Odenkirk Steps Into the Spotlight

27 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Near the end of 2013, Bob Odenkirk went to Bryan Cranston for advice. The two became friends as cast members on Breaking Bad, which had just wrapped up its final season on AMC, but they weren’t exactly peers. Cranston’s starring role as, of course, Walter White, the cancer-stricken chemistry teacher who reconstructs his timid self into a murderous meth kingpin, was intrinsic to the show’s appeal and won him, among other honors, four lead-actor Emmys. Odenkirk, on the other hand, was a mere character actor. He played Saul Goodman, a shady lawyer who knew his ship wasn’t coming in, a comic role contrapuntal to the dark-hearted show. Now the series creator, Vince Gilligan, was offering Odenkirk his own star turn in a spinoff, Better Call Saul. He drove from his house in the Hollywood Hills to a coffee shop in the San Fernando Valley, near where Cranston keeps an office, »

5 Ways Actors Over 50 Are Shaking Up Their Careers to Avoid the Johnny Depp Curse

26 January 2015 3:01 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The 51-year-old actor adds another flop to his already long streak, but other actors aren’t betting their careers on only box-office bankability

Johnny Depp could be considered one of Hollywood’s biggest stars on the planet, but he hasn’t had a hit at the box office in ages and “Mortdecai” has just been added to the list of bombs.

The actor plays the Wolf in Disney’s ensemble musical “Into the Woods,” but his last leading man hit was 2011’s installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Last year’s “Transcendence” fizzled, as did 2013’s “The Lone Ranger” and »

Harvey Weinstein on Best Pictures, 'Snowpiercer' and Theatrical vs. VOD and His "Harvey Scissorhands" Nickname

26 January 2015 9:14 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Harvey Weinstein is one of the most powerful, outspoken, and controversial men in Hollywood. The studio executive who launched Miramax and The Weinstein Company is a passionate film lover, a master promoter, a ruthless Oscar campaigner, and just about everything else you need to be in order to make it to the top in the business. Even if you find what he does unscrupulous or the content he produces not very good, it is hard not to admire the man for how successful he has made himself, no matter how frustrating it might be. Weinstein recently had a chat with Deadline, covering a wide variety of topics from the Netflix series "Marco Polo" to the troubles with the upcoming Broadway musical adaptation of Finding Neverland to Oscar campaigning to his reputation of recutting films, giving him the nickname "Harvey Scissorhands." I had no idea the Weinsteins were behind "Marco Polo »

Bryan Cranston's New Moustache Almost Stole the Show From Uzo Aduba

25 January 2015 5:43 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Bryan Cranston kicked off the SAG Awards with the first awards presentation, but it was his interesting facial hair that ended up turning heads.  The actor took the stage to announce the nominees for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series and simultaneously debuted a brand new moustache design. Think of it as part Fu Manchu, part soul patch. Cranston was one of the many men who jumped on the heavy beard bandwagon at this month's Golden Globes, and it appears he quickly tired of the scruffy look. Perhaps he's feeling a little nostalgic for the late, great Walter White? And, it appears we aren't the only ones who noticed the funky change—tons of viewers took to Twitter to »

‘Birdman’ Soars As PGA Sets A New Course For Wide Open Best Picture Oscar Race

25 January 2015 3:10 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

During the cocktail reception before Saturday night’s Producers Guild Awards began I ran into Oscar-nominated Screenwriter (and Director) Dan Gilroy and wife Rene Russo, there supporting one of the ten PGA Darryl F. Zanuck Best Picture nominees, Nightcrawler. Russo, admittedly not a staple at this type of awards-season banquet, asked me if they were going to serve food at this event. “Yes,” I replied, “it’s a dinner.” “So what do you think will win, Boyhood or Birdman?” she wondered. That was an interesting and somewhat surprising way to distill what has been thought to be a wide open race to Oscar until Boyhood basically cleaned up on the critics circuit, capping its run with Golden Globe and  Critics Choice Movie Award wins, while Birdman scored for Michael Keaton but actually lost to Fox Searchlight stablemate The Grand Budapest Hotel in both respective comedy categories. But now with the »

25 January 2015 2:46 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Birdman secured the top prize at the 2015 Producers Guild Awards last night (January 24).

The Michael Keaton film triumphed over the likes of Boyhood and The Imitation Game to take home the Darryl F Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures.

Director Alejandro González Iñárritu accepted the award, saying: "On behalf of all of us, our only ambition was to make a risky and experimental exploration of the cinematic language, of an artist's complexity played by the incredible Michael Keaton.

"I feel humbled by this. All the films that are nominated have such an individual voice, the expression behind them - only the people who made them could have made them."

The Lego Movie picked up the animated feature award, beating Golden Globe winner How to Train Your Dragon 2.

AMC's Breaking Bad received the Norman Felton Award, given to the top drama series. It beat shows including Game of Thrones and True Detective. »
