Rosemary's Baby Mini-Series Is Coming to NBC

10 December 2013 12:35 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

NBC has greenlit the four-hour miniseries Rosemary's Baby, an adaptation of the 1967 best-selling suspense novel by Ira Levin.

Production is set to begin in January in Paris.

The project will be produced by Lionsgate Television, with Joshua Maurer, Alix Witlin and David Stern serving as executive producers.

Scott Abbott (Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, Winchell) and James Wong (American Horror Story) will write the screenplay. Agnieszka Holland, who has been nominated for both an Oscar (Europa Europa) and an Emmy Award (Treme), will direct. Casting will begin immediately.

Here's what NBC Entertainment's Quinn Taylor had to say about the mini-series in a statement.

"Ira Levin's mesmerizing book was a groundbreaking reflection on how effective and influential a psychological thriller could be. We're looking forward to adapting his incredible work and bringing those indelible characters to a new generation of viewers."

Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment, also added her own statement. »

The 20 Funniest Female Comedy Teams in Movies

26 June 2013 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Remember how 2011's "Bridesmaids" was supposed to usher in a new era of female buddy comedies? Didn't really happen, did it? Aside from the new cop caper "The Heat" (starring Sandra Bullock and "Bridesmaids" alumna Melissa McCarthy), there haven't been too many female buddy comedies lately.

But then, that's always been the case. The female duo or ensemble drama is rare enough, but comedies centering on two or more prominent women are rarer still. Even in the early years of film, male comedy teams like Laurel and Hardy or Abbott and Costello flourished, while female teams like Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly (who made many shorts together) languished and were forgotten. There's never been a shortage of funny female teams on TV (from Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance to Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams, to the "Golden Girls" and "Sex and the City" casts), but seldom do movies find room »

Pigskin Parade – The DVD Review

14 January 2013 7:33 PM, PST | | See recent news »


Review by Sam Moffitt

I can pinpoint the exact moment I became a film fan, a cinema buff, a Movie Geek if you will. It was while watching a television broadcast of Pigskin Parade, a college musical based around football, released by 20th Century Fox in 1936.

But a little background on myself first. Born in southeast Missouri in 1955 I can remember when television was a rare and exotic device. We knew a few neighbors near us in the little town I started growing up in, Hiram, Missouri who had televisions. Getting to watch it was a rare treat ,we knew a little old lady near us who had a television and she let us come over to watch shows like McKenzie’s Raiders and the Grey Ghost.

In 1959 my mother bought a television, a 19″ Motorola cabinet model. I can be sure of the year because I vividly remember the premiere episode of The Twilight Zone, »
