Last month, we reported the unfortunate news that The Maze Runner: The Death Cure star Dylan O'Brien was seriously injured on the set of this sequel, which caused the production to be temporarily shut down. Earlier this month, the actor's co-star Giancarlo Esposito claimed production would start back up in early May, after the actor recovered from his injuries. But that is no longer the case. 20th Century Fox issued a statement today that production on the sequel has been shut down indefinitely.
The studio still hasn't released any official details about the on-set accident, but reports have claimed that the actor suffered a concussion, a facial fracture and several lacerations from a motorcycle stunt that went horribly wrong. It isn't known what has changed about the actor's condition between then and now, and the studio hasn't revealed when production will get started once again. Take a look at the »
After making audiences laugh for five seasons on “New Girl,” Max Greenfield is taking a big step forward in the dramatic field as he’s in talks to star with Brie Larson in Lionsgate’s adaptation of “The Glass Castle.”
Lionsgate had no comment.
The pic is based on Jeannette Walls’ memoir about a young girl who comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads. Walls’ eccentric mother and alcoholic father would stir the children’s imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty.
Greenfield will play Jeannette’s loyal, but distant husband. He had a privileged upbringing, and is now living in Westchester and working in finance. He tries to understand and help Jeannette cope with her parents’ unexpected arrival.

Dito Montiel is directing the film from his own script, adapted from his book of the same name about a man who works on infomercials and is selected to appear on a late night talk show. If the deal goes through, Morgan will play Helms’ best friend.
Morgan worked with Montiel on the 2011 drama “The Son of No One.” The former “30 Rock” star recently returned to the business after a car accident left him seriously injured in 2014. He gave his first TV interview following the crash on “Today” last June, made a surprise appearance at the Emmy Awards in September and »

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been renewed for seasons 13 and 14 on Fxx, it was announced today by Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. With Season 14, Sunny will tie The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet as the longest-running live-action comedy series in television history. The previously-announced season 12 will premiere in early 2017. Here's what FX's Nick Grad had to say in a statement.
"If anyone doubts the power of a camcorder and a dream, just look at It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which was a Diy backyard pilot when Rob (McElhenney), Charlie (Day) and Glenn (Howerton) brought it to FX and will go down in TV history as one of the most loved and enduring comedies. Few shows make it this far or have such devoted fans, and we owe it all to the creative vision and great humor of the creators and »
The Gang may live on forever. FX will have It's Always Sunny In Philadephia for at least another three seasons...
“The Gang Gets Renewed for Two More Years.”
Long-running FX sitcom It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia will be in the history books. The cable network announced the renewal of two additional seasons (13 and 14) after season 12, we’re safe to assume, airs early next year.
That places the series in rarified air, tying The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet as the longest-running live-action sitcom in television history. The Gang doesn’t tie, so we fully expect Charlie to squash that beef and stalk the waitress to infinity.
Say what you want about this savage Gang, but they’re a resilient bunch. Shaking off the move to FX’s lessor-known sister network Fxx, the ratings remain strong (it’s No. 1 on cable for adults 18-49), and the quality, though at times uneven, »
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, the evergreen comedy that shows no sign of slowing up, has today earned a two-season renewal at FX.
Having just wrapped up season 11 earlier this year, the network’s order extends Always Sunny’s run to season 14 – season 12, meanwhile, is due in 2017 – bringing Rob McElhenney’s series neck and neck with The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, which holds the record for the most seasons by a live-action comedy.
Buoyed by impressive viewing figures – viewer count for Always Sunny season 11 was up 13 precent on its predecessor – FX spoke about the show’s future, which continues to look bright even so far into its run.

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” has been renewed for a 13th and 14th season on cable network Fxx.
With the renewal, “It’s Always Sunny” is set tie “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet,” which ran for 14 seasons, for the most seasons by a live-action television comedy. Season 11 of “It’s Always Sunny” finished in March. The previously announced 12th season is set to premiere in 2017.
“If anyone doubts the power of a camcorder and a dream, just look at ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,’ which was a Diy backyard pilot when Rob, Charlie and Glenn brought it to FX and will go down in TV history as one of the most loved and enduring comedies,” said Grad. “Few shows make it this far or have such devoted fans, and we owe it all to the creative vision and great humor of the creators and cast who keep »

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is about to make television history. Fxx announced today that it has renewed the sitcom for not one but two more seasons, 13 and 14, tying for the record of longest-running live-action comedy in television history (with The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, which ran from 1952 to 1966). The show, which just completed its eleventh season, was already renewed for season 12, which will debut in early 2017. That means three more years of your favorite possibly racist, definitely screwup bar owners Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dee (Kaitlin Olson) and Frank (Danny DeVito), who somehow manage to keep Paddy's Pub open despite actively »

With Warner Bros. Pictures preparing to launch "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" in cinemas this weekend, release dates for four of its other releases have now been locked in.
First up, the Charlie Day and Ice Cube-led comedy "Fist Fight" has been slated for February 17th 2017. That will be followed by the sequel to the horror doll tale "Annabelle" on May 19th 2017. After that comes an August 11th 2017 release date for an untitled event film which, at best guess, is probably the "San Andreas" sequel.
Finally there's an October 20th 2017 release date for the Ben Affleck-directed "Live By Night". That puts the film, an adaptation of the Dennis Lehane novel, smack dab in the middle of awards season and only a few weeks out from the first "Justice League" film in which he also stars.
They aren't the only company setting dates today though as The Weinstein »

You will need to hotfoot it to Windsor to check out the new 12-minute Lego short – but it should leave your kids buzzing long after you have left the park
A freezing cold day in early March may not be the best way to investigate the Legoland theme park in Windsor for the first time, but the launch of new Lego movie – or rather, a new Lego® Movie™ – meant that the siren call of the all-day kiddie attraction could not be resisted.
What we got to see wasn’t exactly Lego Movie 2 – that’s still in production, and not due till 2018 – but a snappy 12-and-half-minute short designed to play in the theme park’s own cinemas, with “4D” effects, which in the case of A New Adventure amounts to light-show effects, party poppers and and a blast of snow-like mist, along with the 3D specs. But it is a warm-up »

Creed was one of a select few movies last year that hit the sweet spot of both critical and commercial success. The hit spinoff of the beloved Rocky franchise scored a whopping 94% "Fresh" rating with the critics on Rotten Tomatoes, and it took in $173.2 million worldwide, from just a $35 million budget. During Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s Oscars special last weekend, the late-night talk show host teamed up with Tracy Morgan and a slew of other stars to present the Creed parody "Clubber."
Anyone familiar with the Rocky franchise will surely remember the name Clubber, as in Clubber Lang, the ferocious fighter played by Mr. T in Rocky III. This spoof toys with the Creed concept, but instead of Apollo Creed's son coming to "Rocky" (Jimmy Kimmel), it's Clubber Lang Jr. (Tracy Morgan), who wants Rocky to train him. The spoof features a number of memorable cameos as well, including J.K. Simmons, »
Fans of Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim were elated to hear that we were going back to the war of Kaijus vs. Jaegers with Pacific Rim 2, but those dreams were dashed when it was announced the movie was officially delayed.

The project had been placed on hold in September, when it was taken off the 2017 release schedule.

Frank may not have appeared too often in last night’s episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, but Charlie Day did have quite the story to share about Danny DeVito when he visited Conan on Tuesday night. Over the years DeVito, who is now in his seventies, has had to pull off a lot of crazy stunts, always game to do whatever they ask of him. So when they told him that they’d be filming a scene underwater he probably didn’t even blink an eye. Day explained on Conan how this particular stunt ended up going very wrong: “We did
