A few days ago we had the opportunity to sit down and talk to the cast of the upcoming thriller "Project Almanac."
The film follows a brilliant high school student David Raskin (Jonny Weston) and his friends (Sofia Black-d’Elia, Sam Lerner, Allen Evangelista) who uncover blueprints for a mysterious device leading to time travel with limitless potential, inadvertently putting lives in danger.
Check out what the cast had to say about their latest project.

While producer Jerry Bruckheimer has seemed pretty confident in the past that we'll see the mildly-anticipated Beverly Hills Cop 4 released in March 2016, Eddie Murphy himself isn't so confident. In a new interview with Rolling Stone to promote his Reggae single 'Oh Jah Jah', the comedian-turned-Rastafari revealed that the script for Beverly Hills Cop 4 isn't ready, and he refuses to make another bad sequel. Asked if he thought the franchise reboot was set to shoot soon, he replied:
"Nah, they still trying to get that script right. I'm not doing a 'Beverly Hills Cop' unless they have a really incredible script. I've read a couple things that look like they can make some paper. But I'm not doing a sh*tty movie just to make some paper. The sh*t got to be right."
Michigan Film Office spokeswoman Michelle Grinnell has a conflicting report, though. Back in June, »
A couple of brief status updates have arrived regarding several sequels to major franchises setup at Paramount Pictures.
First up, Platinum Dunes producers Andrew Form and Bradley Fuller have confirmed that the company's second reboot of the "Friday the 13th" franchise is still having its script tinkered with. Form tells Collider: "Just working on the script still. Hoping to make that movie this year and Brad, I'm gonna confirm that Jason is in the movie."
In the same interview, Form also offered a brief update on the sequel to last year's critically reviled but successful reboot of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" franchise. Plans to get the movie into cinemas by mid-2016 seem to still be in effect: “We’re in prep right now. We start shooting in New York in April."
Meanwhile, Paramount is still planning a fourth film in the popular "Beverly Hills Cop" franchise with the Michigan »

When we last reported on Beverly Hills Cop 4, the movie was said to be heading back to Detroit during the “warmest winter on record” in a script by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol). The movie was also said to have a 2016 release date which seems more and more doubtful especially after the recent comments Eddie Murphy made about the projects progress. At this point it’s still safe to say that sure Brett Ratner is still »

The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation has announced the nominations for the 35th annual Razzie Awards. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Legend of Hercules, and Transformers 4: Age of Ex-stink-Tion are leading the nominations for worst movies of the year. The only name I don't think belongs on this list of nominations is Mel Gibson for his role in The Expendables 3, because he was freakin' awesome in that!
You can check out the full announcement below, followed by the nominations list. Look it over and let us know if you agree with what they claim is the worst of 2014.
Hollywood was not happy with box office returns for 2014, their lowest-grossing year in recent history. Despite a handful of high-grossing hits, there were way more major misses — movies based on recycled premises and re-worked concepts that were already tired a decade or more ago, the cinematic equivalent of re-treaded tires. »

Hollywood was not happy with box office returns for 2014, their lowest-grossing year in recent history. Despite a handful of high-grossing hits, there were way more major misses - movies based on recycled premises and re-worked concepts that were already tired a decade or more ago, the cinematic equivalent of re-treaded tires. Those are the films The Golden Raspberry Awards have annually "saluted" since 1980.
Nominees for the 35th Annual Razzie Awards, satirizing the Worst Achievements in Film for 2014, include new names and several Repeat Offenders, returning for more pie-in-the-face/light-hearted joshing by the one Tinsel Town trophy derby no one sets out to win. And, in a new spin on the entire Razzie concept, this year launches a new category acknowledging that past nominees and "winners" can (and often do) go on to far far better things. Contenders for the inaugural Razzie Redeemer Award include Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Mike Myers, »
Nominations for the 35th annual Razzie Awards, which satirize “the Worst Achievements in Film for 2014,” are out. Transformers: Age Of Extinction leads the field with seven; while Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and The Legend Of Hercules are tied at six nods each.
As usual, the Razzie races were unveiled one day before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces its picks for the best achievements of the year in film. But are the Razzies softening at 35? A new category has been added this year for the Razzie Redeemer Award, which acknowledges “that past nominees and ‘winners’ can (and often do) go on to far far better things.” The inaugural class includes Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston and Kristen Stewart.

We started this website back in 2007, and since then, the names of some sequels seem to come up with reasonable regularity, albeit with no sign of the film itself. And in the time we've been going, yet more names have added themselves to the list of follow-ups that are seemingly stuck in development hell.
With the new Ghostbusters film set to escape and become a real thing in the next year or two, here's just a sample of the other projects struggling to get off the ground (with one or two edging closer to a greenlight than others...)
