'Transformers' Multi-Part Sequel & Spinoff Movies Planned

27 March 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paramount Pictures is in negotiations with writer-director-producer Akiva Goldsman to help develop new Transformers movies alongside franchise director Michael Bay. Deadline reports that Paramount's approach is similar to what director James Cameron did with his Avatar sequels, forming a "writers room" of sorts that will come up with ideas to develop a new multi-part sequel and spinoff movies. Akiva Goldsman isn't expected to write any of these movies himself, but he will find new writers to craft the scripts based on his ideas for the franchise.

The site also reports that Michael Bay would like to have Transformers 5 ready to start production once he wraps on his Benghazi thriller 13 Hours. It has long been believed that last year's Transformers: Age of Extinction, which was the only movie last year to cross $1 billion worldwide, was the last Transformers he planned on directing, but it seems he'll be on board to helm Transformers 5 as well. »

This week in TV news: The Academy hands down rulings on hourlong comedies

21 March 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following a ruling last month that the Television Academy would only consider half hour shows eligible for the comedy category at the Emmys, a panel of nine analysts have now begun handing down the rulings for exemptions in the selection process. The panel, which was set up to determine the category assignment of hour-long shows that appealed their placement in drama, has now ruled, as per Variety, that the Fox show Glee, the Showtime series Shameless, and the CW series Jane The Virgin can compete as comedies at the upcoming primetime Emmys. The decision will apply to all categories, from Acting to Directing, and so on.

One show that notably wasn’t granted a waiver, however, is the Netflix serial Orange Is The New Black. The series, which revolves around the inhabitants of a women’s prison, was categorised as a comedy at last year’s Primetime Emmys, where it picked up three wins. »

Miramax Turning The Brothers Grimm Into TV Show

20 March 2015 5:33 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Ehren Kruger of the film The Brothers Grimm is trying to turn it into a TV show. Miramax’s Executive Vice President of Film & TV, Zanne Devine opened up about how his company was seeking out the possibility. However, they were surprised by his pitch to them like Ehren did. Zanne claims that the possible series written by Ehren and produced by Daniel Bobker, will feature many of the classic characters from the world of The Brothers Grimm. Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm will be the main stars of the show, while relying on their wonderful characters. Here is what we know so far about the possible series.

The original stories the Brothers set out to collect were not for the faint of heart and we’ll be making a show that gets back to those origins and their cautionary, scary, thrilling spirit.

It sounds like it will certainly be an interesting show! »

'Ring' Prequel 'Rings' Casts Alex Roe as the Male Lead

20 March 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

British actor Alex Roe has signed on to play the male lead in Paramount's Rings, which we reported last week will be a prequel to the studio's 2002 thriller The Ring. While that report has yet to be confirmed, it claimed that this new story will be set several years before The Ring, focusing on the origin of Samara's reign of terror and how the mysterious video tape was created. In The Ring, anyone who watches this VHS tape dies seven days later.

We reported in January that Matilda Lutz has signed on as the lead character, but no details about her role were given. Deadline reports that Alex Roe is playing Holt, the boyfriend of Matilda Lutz's character who suddenly becomes distant after he watches the aforementioned tape. Since the earlier report reveals the story will examine how the tape is created, these new details could either mean that the previous report was inaccurate, »

Alex Roe To Star In Horror Prequel Rings

20 March 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paramount Pictures is returning to the dark, gloomy well first spotted in 2002’s The Ring for its third instalment in the franchise, Rings. Described in a recent report as a “prequel” to the events of the two pre-existing movies, each starring Naomi Watts as an intrepid journalist, the movie has since gone on to secure its male lead. Fresh from filming Ya adaptation The 5th Wave alongside Chloe Grace Moretz, Alex Roe is now locked in to star.

Roe is the second cast member to board Rings, which hails from F. Javier Gutierrez (formerly attached to helm the new Crow reboot). He joins leading lady Matilda Lutz and presumably an unannounced youngster tasked with crawling around in dingy wells and crawling out of television sets.

Roe and Lutz will play a teenage couple with Roe’s character set to give his girlfriend the cold shoulder after she forces him to watch the tape. »

Ehren Kruger Scripting Brothers Grimm TV Series

19 March 2015 5:11 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Fairy tales on telly? Nah, no-one wants to watch that, surely? Because we don’t already have Once Upon A Time, Grimm, Beauty And The Beast... Miramax clearly sees there’s an appetite for them, and has pressed Brothers Grimm screenwriter Ehren Kruger to develop and TV series based on the Terry Gilliam film. Putting something into development now, ten years after the movie, doesn’t exactly feel like striking the iron while it’s hot. But with the aforementioned series and various fairy-tale movies helping fuel interest, it’s perhaps not that surprising. Kruger will use the movie as an origin story launch pad for ongoing tales of Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm, who discover the supernatural stakes behind the folklore. The casting search will kick off once the elements are in place.“We reached out to Ehren Kruger and producing partner Daniel Bobker to see if they had any »

The Ring Prequel ‘Rings’ Begins Pre-Production, Will Tell Origin Story of Samara

19 March 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s a fate worse than any Blockbuster late fee from back in the day: if you watch the tape, you die one week later at the hands of Samara Morgan, the black-haired ghost girl who needs no help getting out of the well she calls home. Though the 2002 American remake of 1998's Ringu unveiled some of Samara's backstory (in addition to the 2005 sequel, The Ring Two), there's still much more to explore about the adopted girl in the well, and Paramount is looking to to shed light on the murky horrors of Samara's past with Rings, the upcoming third entry in The Ring remake franchise that's slated for release late this year. Pre-production on the movie recently kicked off in Atlanta, and director F. Javier Gutiérrez shared some photos that give us new glimpses of the black-haired terror from the TV screen and much more.

'The Brothers Grimm' Series In The Works Based On The Movie With Matt Damon And Heath Ledger

19 March 2015 9:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

You gotta feel a little bit for Terry Gilliam. First, SyFy turns "12 Monkeys" into a TV series without his input, and now the director's 2005 effort "The Brothers Grimm" is also headed to the small screen, but once again it looks like he won't be involved. Miramax has announced they've hired Ehren Kruger —who penned Gilliam's film as well as other "notable" works like the last three 'Transformers' movies— to create a TV series that will build off the origin story introduced in his screenplay for 'Grimm.' This new take will follow the swashbuckling adventures of brothers Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm, who discover startling mythological and supernatural stakes behind the folklore that swept 19th century Europe. Woo! As Gilliam's fans know, he famously clashed with the Brothers Weinstein during production, resulting in the firing of his cinematographer among other things. So perhaps this is a chance for Miramax to make the project they wanted. »

PETA has requested Tim Burton change the ending for his new version of Dumbo

16 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Last week it was revealed that Tim Burton would direct Disney's remake of their classic Dumbo. Based on a script being drafted by Ehren Kruger, Dumbo would tell the story of the elephant with the over-sized ears who learns to fly. The movie remains one of the more traumatic films in the childhoods of many thanks to the mad elephant scenes and the torture at the hands of the circus handlers. Now it looks like some are hoping the new film can change these moments for a new generation. PETA »

Joe Carnahan Will Conduct DreamWorks’ Motorcade

11 March 2015 7:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Joe Carnahan has been tapped to write and direct Motorcade for DreamWorks, a project that the studio has had in the works for over a decade.

The thriller will center on a Secret Service agent who fails to stop a deadly and vicious attack on the President of the United States as he rides in a motorcade.

Hans Bauer and Craig Mitchell originally pitched the pic to DreamWorks back in 2004, and the studio picked it up for a modest sum. Over the years, writers Ehren Kruger, Billy Ray and Robert Rodat have all circled for rewrites, and Jon Cassar was at one point attached to direct, but somehow Motorcade has yet to be made. Carnahan, though, is expected to take it on as his next project.

The helmer last made comic thriller Stretch, starring Patrick Wilson, for Blumhouse, which eventually tabled its release and quietly sent it on to Netflix, »
