Disney has reportedly been eyeing Cruise to star in one of their upcoming musical comedies, Bob the Musical, for quite some time, and now it looks like it.s closer to happening. According to The Wrap, Cruise hasn't officially signed on for Bob the Musical, but he's circling the lead role, that of a regular guy who suffers a blow to the head. Now he can hear the inner songs of everyone.s heart, which, to his dismay, transforms his life into a musical. As the trade notes, the film has been in development since 2004.

Las Vegas - It's not an understatement to suggest that since they last presented their wares to the world's theater owners Sony Pictures has had a pretty dramatic 12 months . December's North Korean hacking scandal made the release of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's "The Interview" a global news story where the studio and exhibitors blamed each other for not screening the film in mainstream theaters. And, frankly, when Potus gets involved there better be a lot of water under that bridge to put all that behind you. Five months later Sony has a new Chairman (Tom Rothman) and, luckily, much better films to help heal some delicate wounds. The studio didn't have the star power to rival previous presenters Paramount and Warner Bros, but they did bring a lot of new footage and also made some news. First, let's get to the news. Sony revealed that a new "Jump »

According to Tom Rothman, chairman of the Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group, Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, directors of "The Lego Movie" and "21 Jump Street", will take 'Spider-Man' "...back to his graphic roots..." with a new animated "Spider-Man" feature, that will exist independently of the projects in the ongoing live-action "Spider-Man" universe:
'Spider-Man' will next appear in a live-action Marvel film from the 'Marvel Cinematic Universe' ('McU'). Sony Pictures will then release the next installment of its "Spider-Man" franchise, July 28, 2017, in a live-action film produced by Marvel's Kevin Feige and Sony's Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago.
According to the studio, "...'Spider-Man', embraced all over the world, is the most successful franchise in the history of Sony Pictures, with the five films having taken in more than $4 billion worldwide..."

The guys behind The Lego Movie and both Jump Street flicks will apparently only write a treatment and act as producers for now but considering their knack for animation and humour – something that Spidey movies have lacked – there’s every chance they could direct too.
The movie’s release date is penned in for July 20 2018. That may seem like it gives Lord and Miller plenty of time to bang out a treatment but the duo are gonna be extremely busy over the next few years having already signed up to work on a sequel to The Lego Movie and Warner Bros/DC’s The Flash. They will also serve as producers on 23 Jump Street, a Lego Batman spin-off »

Usually when a franchise explodes like Furious 7 and crushes box office records, the studio can’t wait to announce when we’ll see the next installment. However, Furious 7 opened several weeks ago, and the studio is playing remarkably coy with the bombastic franchise. There are plans to make three more movies, but when will be seeing them? Steve spoke with producer Neal Moritz about Furious 8 at CinemaCon yesterday while he was promoting Sony's Goosebumps, and asked when we might hear about the sequel moving forward: [complextv contentid="p1d29vdDqjXbpbJUmWs9YpDXl96-V_lQ" sitename="collider" playerid="26aa5f02d93f4c05a4546f6d5ecb59b7" adsetid="67a3ff9d3a842ae818bb9de1badc5b0" width="600" height="360" keywords=""] Neal Moritz: If that’s going to happen, it’s going to be soon. Well I know Furious 8 is happening so… Moritz: Well, we’re definitely talking about it, but we’re also kind of all said to ourselves, “Let’s relish this moment of Furious 7.

Following their success on The Lego Movie, the directing duo Lord and Miller have become incredibly busy. On top of working the story treatment for Warner Bros.

How much Spider-Man is too much? Apparently there can never be enough. Marvel is busy rebooting the live action character for their franchise, but don't think Sony is sitting around and watching one of their valuable properties being handled by someone else. They're still free to try their own hand at the character and it looks like they really want the younger set to get on board with the web slinger. Hollywood's favorite franchise heroes, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, will produce and write the treatment for an animated Spider-Man film for Sony, that will hit cinemas on July 20, 2018 (that's one year after Marvel's scheduled, live action "The Spectacular Spider-Man"). This will be a standalone effort and not part of the Marvel universe. Lord and Miller — who have their fingers in the Lego franchise, "22 Jump Street" series, and are working on "The Flash" — are still deciding whether or not they'll direct this new 'Spider-Man, »

While he has five live action movies under his belt, with more on their way, Spider-Man has always thrived in animated form with numerous small screen cartoons dating back to the 1960's, reaching a high point in the 90's with the highly popular, arc heavy Spider-Man. Now, announced at CinemaCon by Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman Tom Rothman, an animated web slinger is coming to the big screen, independent of the live action, masterminded by The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street's Phil Lord and Chris Miller. This is fantastic news as Lord and Miller have shown a great level of fun and inventiveness in their animated work, especially Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, and are the perfect pair to tackle ol' web head. They excel at the irreverent, and you don't get more irreverent that Spider-Man and his wise cracking ways. The movie is expected to come our way July »

Everyone’s favourite web-slinger has been rebooted onscreen more times than a prison football. Yet after two movie franchises, an upcoming appearance in Captain America: Civil War and another reimagining in the works (supposedly under director Drew Goddard), Sony aren’t quite done with creating new escapades for Spider-man. They’ve just announced an animated instalment that will plough its own furrow away from the established canon(s).
CinemaCon was the venue for the project to be announced, and it’s clear this won’t be just another hastily-drawn spin-off going straight to DVD. The studio have hired The Lego Movie’s Phil Lord and Chris Miller to devise, produce and hopefully direct the new spectacular. No word on voice casting, though presumably some big names will be heading to Marvel’s recording booth.
It’s going to be a busy time for Peter Parker’s spandex-clad alter-ego. He’ll »

The big screen adventures of Spider-Man aren't just going to be restricted to him joining the Marvel cinematic universe. It turns out that there's also an animated Spider-Man movie on the way.
The pair were responsible for two of last year's biggest hits, The Lego Movie and 22 Jump Street, and as things stand, they're producing and writing the treatment for this particular Spider-Man. It's unclear as of yet whether they'll be directing as well (they're also writing another 2018 release, The Lego Movie Sequel).
The animated Spider-Man film will be released in cinemas on July 20th 2018. More news on the project as we hear it...

Though rumored a while back, Sony has now officially announced plans for a new animated feature based on Marvel superhero Spider-Man.
"The Lego Movie" and "22 Jump Street" directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will direct the project, write the treatment and produce the film which is targeting a July 20th 2018 release - a year after the upcoming Marvel-approved "Spider-Man" movie hits cinemas on July 28th 2017.
Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman says the film will 'co-exist' with the live-action Spiderman universe, but according to a press release: "The film will exist independently of the projects in the live-action Spider-Man universe, all of which are continuing."

Sony has announced plans for its animated, Phil Lord–and–Chris Miller–written-and-produced Spider-Man feature, Variety reports. You might remember mumblings of this project from last fall's Sony hack scandal, but Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman officially dished the news at this year's CinemaCon. Attendees were assured there that the cartoon flick would exist outside the realm of Marvel's forthcoming live-action Spidey projects. The movie is reportedly set to hit theaters July 20, 2018. (This means there will be a lot of Spider-Man movies for this generation of filmgoers, as well as a big workload for this generation of Lords and Millers.) Step one, for the filmmakers, will be perfecting the treatment. (Oh, hey guys ... about that treatment.) »
