8 Inherently Annoying Movies That Everyone You Know Seems To Love

17 July 2015 12:23 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

There are a special collection of films that the masses tend to endlessly gravitate around; films that the collective human race are somehow pre-programmed to re-watch over and over again on a regular basis, for no reason other than: “This… again!”

You know the films. Romantic comedies slapped with slightly suggestive two-word titles like Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman. Lengthy, hopeful dramas with life-affirming messages such as The Shawshank Redemption. Mainstream flicks with just a hint of edginess, like Fight Club. And, of course… anything that Christopher Nolan turns out.

Not that there’s anything nothing wrong with these particular movies; they’re popular for a reason, and people go back to them time and time again because they offer up a sense of tried and tested goodness – they’re comforting, like your favourite hot meal.

But whereas a lot of very popular motion pictures deserve their good reputations, »

Chris D’Elia, Bob Castrone & Hannah Simone Talk Flock Of Dudes and Dead Grandmas

19 June 2015 3:39 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There was a point four or five years ago where it seemed like every studio comedy released was some variation of the guys-being-guys trademarked formula. You know – dudes knocking down beers, talking about chicks, engaging in various gross out antics, ribbing one another… Judd Apatow ushered in this bromance with The 40-Year Old Virgin and Todd Phillips took the blueprints to its nihilistic breaking point with his Hangover series. These were the biggest comedies around… until suddenly they weren’t. Look no further than the not-so-spectacular box-office results of Entourage and Hot Tub Time Machine 2 as proof. There’s something almost quaint nowadays about the genre. Watching out-of-shape grown men playing x-box, smoking a doob, picking their noses, lying about not doing anything, cursing one another off, scratching their balls – it’s all become dare-i-say… humdrum. I guess part of the initial appeal is the shock value, that ‘oh »

New Projects: Bradley Cooper, Lbj, Reese Witherspoon, and Meg the Shark

19 June 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

After American Sniper was the biggest box office draw of 2014, it seems anyone will pay to see Bradley Cooper in uniform again. Deadline reports Cooper is set to produce Ghost Army, a World War II story about an agency tasked with feeding the Nazis fake intelligence about the actual number of American troops, with the hope that Cooper will star. Cooper, Todd Phillips, and Andrew Lazar are producing a script by Henry Gayden (Earth to Echo), working from a non-fiction book entitled The Ghost Army of World War II and a 2013 documentary also titled Ghost Army.

Not even a year after Tom Wilkinson portrayed Lyndon B. Johnson in Selma, Woody Harrelson will now portray our former president in Rob Reiner’s political drama simply titled Lbj. Via Variety, production will begin in the fall on a film about the life of Johnson up through his childhood and how he was »

Bradley Cooper Enlists in ‘Ghost Army’ for Warner Bros.

Aloha was a rare stumble for Bradley Cooper, but now he’s dusting himself off and pressing forward with another intriguing project. Cooper and Todd Phillips are teaming up for Ghost Army, a World War II adventure based on real events. The title refers not to a squadron of lost dead souls, but to a special […]

Bradley Cooper Leading Ghost Army For Warner Bros.

16 June 2015 8:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Aloha was a critically derided dud, the film’s failure isn’t expected to hurt star Bradley Cooper, seeing as much of the scorn was leveled at director Cameron Crowe and (to a lesser extent) Emma Stone for playing a character outside her race. With culinary pic Adam Jones and biopic Joy out this fall, Cooper is gearing up for a much better rest of his 2015, and now he’s boarding another fascinating project.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros. has secured rights to Rick Beyer and Elizabeth Sayles’ WWII nonfiction The Ghost Army Of World War II: How One Top-Secret Unit Deceived The Enemy with Inflatable Tanks, Sound Effects, And Other Audacious Fakery. Cooper and Todd Phillips are producing out of 22 & Green, with American Sniper producer Andrew Lazar also on board in the same capacity, and they’ve set Earth to Echo writer Henry Gayden to pen a script. »

Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips Developing Ghost Army at Warner Bros.

Back when The Monuments Men came out, Dave suggested that Hollywood turn The Ghost Army into a movie and a year later, it's happening! Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. just scored the rights to Rick Beyer and Elizabeth Sayles' The Ghost Army Of World War II: How One Top-Secret Unit Deceived The Enemy with Inflatable Tanks, Sound Effects, And Other Audacious Fakery. [caption id="attachment_473607" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via PBS[/caption] Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips are producing via 22 & Green and will be joined by American Sniper producer Andrew Lazar. The trio and the studio have locked Earth to Echo scribe Henry Gayden to pen the script about the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops, an army unit of artists, architects, actors, set designers and engineers who were assigned to pose as Us Army soldiers and stage combat to deceive the enemy.

Warners To Unleash A "Ghost Army"

16 June 2015 2:39 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has acquired the rights to tell the true story tale "Ghost Army".

The WW2-set story follows a squadron of recruits from art schools, ad agencies and other creative businesses who were tasked with fooling the Nazis into thinking the U.S. had larger troop numbers than it actually did.

Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips and Andrew Lazar will produce the film which is partly inspired by Rick Beyer and documentary of the same name as this project.

Cooper, Phillips and Lazar have set Henry Gayden ("Earth To Echo") to write the script. The hope is Cooper will want to star in it, but that's far from certain at this point.

Bradley Cooper To Wrangle Ghost Army

15 June 2015 5:04 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Clearly enjoying the producer's hat he recently donned for Hyperion, Bradley Cooper is now also putting together a WWII project at Warner Bros. He's developing, along with regular honcho Todd Phillips and American Sniper's Andrew Lazar, the WWII tall tale Ghost Army. Henry Gayden (Earth To Echo) has been tasked with the screenplay, adapting Rick Beyer and Elizabeth Sayles' recently-published history The Ghost Army Of World War II: How One Top-Secret Unit Deceived The Enemy With Inflatable Tanks, Sound Effects, And Other Audacious Fakery. Beyer already used the material in a 2013 documentary, also called Ghost Army.That extended title probably tells you all to need to know about the film in the offing. The stranger-than-fiction story involves a secret squad made up of artists, designers, advertising execs and other creative types who were tasked with making the Us army look a lot bigger than it was, and in a »

Bradley Cooper's Hyperion Heads For SyFy

10 June 2015 5:16 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Four years ago came the surprising news that Bradley Cooper had written, on spec, an adaptation of Dan Simmons' astonishing sci-fi novel Hyperion and was developing it with producer Graham King and Warner Bros. That iteration of the project ultimately came to nothing, but Cooper and King have now regrouped and repurposed Hyperion as an "event series" for SyFy. The pair will act as executive producers along with Todd Phillips, while Boardwalk Empire's Itamar Moses has taken over the writing duties.The Hyperion sequence, modelled on Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and channelling Boccaccio and Keats, deals with an intergalactic war against the titular planet, which does a nice line in energy trees, time-travelling artefacts and dangerous beasties (namely the enigmatic and terrifying Shrike). It follows seven pilgrims, alternately taking each of their viewpoints, as they undertake a journey to end the conflict and resolve their own personal dramas.But »

Hyperion: Syfy Teaming with Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips to Adapt The Sci-Fi Epic

10 June 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Syfy is teaming up with producers Bradley Cooper (American Sniper), Graham King (The Departed, Argo), and Todd Phillips (The Hangover, Due Date) to adapt Dan Simmons' Hugo award-winning science fiction epic Hyperion as an event series. Itamar Moses (Boardwalk Empire) will write the screenplay and serve as co-executive producer. Holy hell, this is exciting. I've been waiting years for this one. Hyperion is a space opera of the highest caliber and and one of the best science fiction series of all time. Simmons created a universe that is complex, engrossing, often terrifying, and populated by fascinating characters. What's more, Syfy has assembled an excellent team of producers to bring the story to TV. [caption id="attachment_471143" align="alignright" width="230"] Image via Doubleday/Bantam Books[/caption] I'm intrigued to find out how they will handle the unconventional narrative of the books - the first is told in a series of vignettes introducing the characters, while the second installment, »
