42 is certainly shaping up to be a mighty fine year for Sofía Vergara. The brunette bombshell, who is celebrating her birthday today, took to WhoSay on Wednesday to share a pic of her chocolate cake, courtesy of pal Reese Witherspoon, with whom she has been filming the comedy Don't Mess With Texas in New Orleans. "Happy verde to me with this two amazing women that I luv and admire!! I will miss u!!@reesewitherspoon and Anne Fletcher❤️❤️❤️," the Modern Family star captioned the pic, seemingly suggesting that production has officially wrapped on the film, which is slated for release in 2015. No surprise, Vergara looks gorgeous in the photo as she »
Paramount Pictures is moving forward with their plans for a third G.I. Joe movie, and they've hired Jonathan Lemkin to write the script. According to Variety, the story will focus on Dwayne Johnson's character, Roadblock, who was introduced in G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Lemkin has previously worked on films such as Shooter with Mark Wahlberg, Devil's Advocate with Keanu Reeves, and Lethal Weapon 4. The studio is hoping to get the sequel into production in 2015 for a 2016 release. As big of a fan I am of the G.I. Joe franchise, the live-action movies that have been made sure have been a big letdown. This is one franchise I wouldn't mind seeing rebooted.
In other news, Disney has decided to dust off their plans for an Enchanted sequel and move it into development. The studio has hired J. David Stem and David N. Weiss to take on the duties of writing the screenplay. »

Seven years after Disney brought Amy Adams into our lives as the real life princess that we’d always dreamed could exist, they’re attempting to make magic happen again with a sequel to their 2007 hit Enchanted, according to Deadline. In that first movie, doe-eyed, full of wonder and dressed like an adorable cupcake Giselle (Adams) peeled herself away from the animated kingdom of Andalasia when a wicked queen (Susan Sarandon) banished her to plain old regular Earth for fear that she would marry her princely stepson (James Marsden) and unseat her from her throne. With Enchanted 2 now a reality, maybe that means Giselle and her true love from New York City (Patrick Dempsey) didn’t wind up happily ever after as it so tidily seemed at the end of the first film. Or Prince Edward and his equally earthly girlfriend (Idina Menzel) weren’t exactly a match either. Having »

A sequel to Disney's Enchanted is reportedly in the works.
It is not yet known if any original cast members will return for the sequel.
Enchanted took $340m worldwide upon its release in 2007.
Watch a trailer for the movie below: »
J. David Stem and David N. Weiss (Shrek 2, The Smurfs) will write a sequel to Enchanted, with Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, The Guilt Trip) set to direct the follow-up to Disney’s worldwide hit, according to Deadline’s report. There currently isn’t any word on whether any or all of the original stars—Amy Adams, James Marsden, Patrick Dempsey, Idina Menzel, and Susan Sarandon, among others—will return, or what exactly the plot details will be. »

J. David Stem and David N. Weiss ("Daddy Day Camp," "Are We There Yet," "Shrek 2") will be writing the script, and Anne Fletcher ("The Guilt Trip," "27 Dresses," "Step Up") will direct. How could this go wrong?!
There's no word on whether or not Adams, who has wowed audiences with dramatic performances in "American Hustle," "Her," "The Master," among others, will reprise her role as Giselle, and, well, why would she? Her career is so crazy good that it would be silly to take a break from her dramatic work to sing for her supper in a sequel.

A pair of sequels have found new writers, the first of which is G.I. Joe 3, which will be written by Jonathan Lemkin (Shooter) with the expectation the film will center around Dwayne Johnson's Roadblock character. G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu is not expected to return as Paramount is planning a 2016 release. Then we come to Disney, who seems to have just remembered their now seven-year-old live-action/animated hybrid Enchanted was a hit and have brought in The Smurfs and Shrek 2 screenwriters, J. David Stem and David N. Weiss, to write Enchanted 2 with Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, The Guilt Trip) attached to direct. No word on which members of the original cast, which included Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey and James Marsden, will return. Variety / Deadline »

It's been seven years since Disney released its "Enchanted" film, which stars Amy Adams and grossed $340 million on a budget of $85 million. Even though a sequel was rumored almost immediately, it's only now that the studio hired writers to write the screenplay. Those writers are J. David Stem and David N. Weiss, the duo behind "The Smurfs" and "Shrek 2." Kevin Lima is not returning to direct. He'll be replaced by Anne Fletcher (The Guilt Trip, 27 Dresses). In the original film, a fairytale princess is sent to our world by an evil queen. Soon after her arrival, Princess Giselle begins to change her views on life and love after meeting a handsome lawyer. Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world? »
It's been seven years since Amy Adams first portrayed princess Giselle in Enchanted. Now Disney is finally going to work on that sequel we've all been waiting for. The studio has hired writing duo David Stem and David N. Weiss (Smurfs 2, Shrek 2, Daddy Day Camp) to pen the script to the overdue followup.
Anne Fletcher (The Guilt Trip, The Proposal) is set to direct the sequel. However, there's no word on whether Adams will reprise her role as Princess Giselle. As a matter of fact, we don't know if any of the original cast members – which include Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Timothy Spall, Idina Menzel, Rachel Covey, and Susan Sarandon – will return.
In 2007, Enchanted's worldwide gross was more than $340 million. The movie earned numerous Oscar nominations and Golden Globe nominations.

It's been seven years since Disney wonderfully transplanted their classic animated tales to the realm of live-action with Enchanted, and while a sequel has been rumoured for a while now, it looks like we are finally getting some traction on the project with The Smurfs and Shrek 2 writers J. David Stem and David N. Weiss hired to pen the script. Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, The Guilt Trip) is at the helm for the sequel, though there is no word on whether Amy Adams will return as the first live action Disney princess, or if any of the cast, including Patrick Dempsey, James Madsen, Timothy Spall, and Susan Sarandon, will be coming back. But, considering the reception she has gotten because of Frozen, I suspect Idina Menzel will see her small role elevated for the follow up. via Deadline »

Disney’s live-action fairytale satire Enchanted came out seven years ago, to widespread acclaim and a whopping $340 million at the global box office. Talk of a follow-up has been going on for years, but the studio only started showing serious intentions on making it happen earlier this year, when they hired The Guilt Trip director Anne Fletcher to take the helm.
According to Deadline, Shrek 2 and The Smurfs writers J. David Stem and David N. Weiss have been brought on board to pen the new screenplay, and though the stars of the first film haven’t been announced yet, they are likely to reprise their roles.
Directed by Kevin Lima, Enchanted starred Amy Adams as Giselle, a Disney princess who gets banished from her animated fantasy world by an evil queen and must fend for herself in live-action modern day Manhattan. Adams was joined by James Marsden (X-Men), Susan Sarandon »

The writers of The Smurfs movies have been hired to script Enchanted 2...
We figured this one was long dead, but it seems as though Disney has just decided to breathe fresh life into the sequel to the wonderful Enchanted.
The first movie was released back in 2007, and starred Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey and James Marsden. Which of those will be returning is unclear, but we at least now know that a pair of writers have been assigned the long-mooted Enchanted 2 job. The writers concerned are J David Stern and David N Weiss, the pair who wrote the scripts to the two Smurfs movies so far. They also wrote, er, Daddy Day Camp (that'd be the sequel, with Cuba Gooding Jr). On the upside, they also penned the excellent Rugrats In Paris.
I have no qualms about admitting that I absolutely loved Enchanted. Filled with incredibly catchy musical numbers (“That’s How You Know” and “Happy Working Song” spring most to mind), hilarious characters, a remarkably self-aware script and a winningly upbeat spirit, it was one of the most plainly fun movies of 2007.
Of course, when the film came out, there was talk of a sequel, but nothing ever really came together. As a big fan of Enchanted, I thought maybe that was a good thing. After all, the story wasn’t exactly conducive to a follow-up, and I didn’t want there to be any chance that an inferior sequel could in any way diminish the spell cast by the original. In a post-Frozen world, however, it appears that there’s new interest in Enchanted 2.
Today brings news that J. David Stern and David N. Weiss have been hired by »

"Shrek 2" and "The Smurfs" scribes J. David Stem and David N. Weiss have been brought on to pen a sequel to Disney's 2007 musical fantasy tale "Enchanted". Anne Fletcher ("The Proposal," "The Guilt Trip") will helm this entry which had a previous draft written by Jessie Nelson.
Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Idina Menzel and Susan Sarandon starred in the first film about an animated Disney princess who crosses over into the real world. It went on to make $340 million at the worldwide box office.
In other sequel script news, Jonathan Lemkin ("Shooter," "Devil's Advocate") has been hired to pen the third "G.I. Joe" film for Paramount Pictures. The new installment is expected to revolve around Dwayne Johnson’s character Roadblock.
The film is aiming to get into production in the second quarter of 2015 ahead of a Summer 2016 release. Jon Chu was originally slated to return as director, that's no longer the case. »

That "Enchanted" sequel you've been waiting for is finally taking shape. Disney has hired screenwriters David Stem and David N. Weiss ("Smurfs 2," "Shrek 2," "Daddy Day Camp") to pen the script for the belated followup, which is set to be directed by Anne Fletcher ("The Guilt Trip," "The Proposal"). The news was broken by Deadline. Amy Adams starred in the Kevin Lima-directed first film as a fairytale princess come to life in modern-day New York City. With songs by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Stephen Schwartz, the film rocketed to a worldwide grosses of more than $340 million and earned three nominations for Best Original Song at the 2008 Oscars (Adams also received a Golden Globe nod for Best Actress). Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Timothy Spall, Idina Menzel and Susan Sarandon were also in the cast. There's no word yet on whether Adams or any of the original cast members will »

Seven years after the first film implanted "Happy Working Song" into everyone's heads, Disney is finally getting serious about Enchanted 2. The original pic, directed by Kevin Lima, imagined what would happen if one of Disney’s gleeful and song-filled princesses made her way into present day New York City, with Amy Adams filling the lead role of Giselle. The result was a funny, catchy, and surprisingly self-aware film that went on to gross $340 million at the worldwide box office. Talk of a sequel surfaced soon after, but the follow-up failed to materialize. Now, with Frozen having grossed over $1.2 billion worldwide and lighting up the home video charts, Disney suddenly has renewed interest in an Enchanted sequel as it has set new screenwriters on the project. Hit the jump for more. Per Deadline, Disney has hired J. David Stern and David N. Weiss to pen the screenplay for Enchanted 2. »

Four years after it was first announced in February 2010, Walt Disney Pictures is moving forward with Enchanted 2, bringing on The Smurfs and The Smurfs 2 writers J. David Stem and David N. Weiss to pen the script.
Our first report revealed that Jessie Nelson (Because I Said So) was writing the sequel, but it isn't known if J. David Stem and David N. Weiss are starting over from scratch, or working from the first draft. No story details have been released.
It isn't clear yet if original Enchanted stars Amy Adams and James Marsden will reprise their roles as Giselle and Prince Edward. The original story centered on Giselle, a fairy tale princess who is sent to the real world by an evil queen, where she meets and falls for a »
"I don’t write music for the money; I write music because it comes from [my heart]," said film composer Aaron Zigman, the go-to composer for directors like Nick Cassavetes, Anne Fletcher and Tyler Perry, during a panel as part of Los Angeles Film Festival's Coffee Talks series, held June 15 and also featuring composers John Ottman and Mark Isham. Zigman started his composing career with a lucky break, as he left behind an illustrious career in the music industry when offered a shot at composing Cassavetes’ John Q. It was a risk, he said, but composing was what
