Ice Cube Attached To Star In ‘Vacation Friends’ At Fox In Casting Revamp

3 November 2015 9:29 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: Ice Cube is now aboard to star in the comedy Vacation Friends at 20th Century Fox, a project that was formerly earmarked for Chris Pratt and Anna Faris.

Ice Cube Has "Vacation Friends" At Fox

3 November 2015 7:19 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Ice Cube is set to star in the comedy "Vacation Friends" at 20th Century Fox following a re-tooling of the project. Originally slated to be a vehicle for real-life husband and wife pair Chris Pratt and Amy Faris, the comedy will now feature Cube in the male lead. His female co-lead has yet to be cast.

Tom & Tim Mullen penned the script in which a conservative couple on vacation in Mexico befriend another couple and have a wild time. When the vacation is over and they return to their normal lives, the vacation couple suddenly shows up in their regular lives and... won't leave.

Cube would play the tightly-wound lawyer who loves his seemingly innocent but dedicated girlfriend who actually has a wild streak that she lets loose while on vacation in Mexico. Steve Pink remains onboard to direct while Todd Garner, who worked with Cube on "Are We Done Yet, »

Billy Bob Thornton Returning for 'Bad Santa 2' in 2016

30 October 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Bad Santa" fans who have been waiting over a decade for a sequel will finally get their Christmas wish next year: Billy Bob Thornton has been confirmed to reprise his role for "Bad Santa 2."

The long-awaited follow-up to the foul-mouthed 2003 dark comedy has officially gotten the green light, and will once again feature Thornton as Willie, a curmudgeonly conman and part-time mall Santa who schemes to rob department stores on Christmas Eve along with his elf sidekick (Tony Cox). The duo is thwarted thanks to a lonesome kid (Brett Kelly) who takes an interest in Willie, and a suspicious mall cop (Bernie Mac); Lauren Graham also co-stars as a bartender with a Santa fetish.

Deadline reports that the sequel has been in the works since 2012, and director Steve Pink was attached to helm at that time. It's not clear yet if Pink is still in the cards, or if »

'Bad Santa 2' Officially Headed Into Production, Release Planned For 2016 Holiday Season

29 October 2015 6:32 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

 "...the writer is still working on the script, he's doing his rewrite right now. We saw the first draft and we just had a few little things we wanted to take away or add and he's doing that. The plan is to shoot that in the fall," Billy Bob Thornton told us way back in 2012. That's really just an example of how long the sequel to "Bad Santa" has been brewing, but now it's officially moving forward. Miramax and Broad Green Pictures have announced that Thornton will reprise his role as Willie Soke, and production on "Bad Santa 2" will start in January in Montreal, Quebec. However, there's not much else in the way of details. There's no word on who has penned the script, or who will be directing. Steve Pink ("Hot Tub Time Machine," "About Last Night") and Doug Ellin ("Entourage") had been linked to the project in the past, »

93 movie remakes and reboots currently in the works

19 August 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...

Akira

One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

'Fletch' Remake Back on as Relativity Closes?

1 August 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Fletch remake is one that has been around for ever, as it has kicked between various directors, actors and movie studios. It's spent its life lingering in development Hell, but Relativity's recently announced bankruptcy may have just breathed new life into this beloved detective comedy. First at Mirimax, and then shuffled over to Warner Bros., Fletch finally found its home at Relativity. But like their Crow remake, it had trouble getting off the ground. Now their financial woes seem to be forcing their hand. The studio is seeking out another studio to help get Fletch moving once again.

Fletch is being included in a potential deal that will keep Relativity active through their Chapter 11 crisis. THR has the report, which sees Fletch as one of the more attractive elements in helping the corporation go through restructuring in its attempt to find new investors. As of now, the studio is »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Bubbling Up to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on May 19

29 April 2015 6:04 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Strip down to your skivvies and fire up the jets because Paramount Home Entertainment is bringing the raunchy comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2 to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on May 19 in a new "Hotter and Wetter Unrated Cut."

Craig RobinsonClark Duke and Rob Corddry are back for more time traveling shenanigans in the sequel to the goofy comedy hit. The film misfired at the box office with only $12 million in domestic tickets sales, but Paramount knew what they were getting into seeing as how the sequel had a budget roughly 1/3 of the original.

The Blu-ray combo edition of Hot Tub Time Machine 2 will be presented in 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-hd Master Audio. Bonus features are fairly robust as you see below:

Fletch remake switches studios, Jason Sudeikis still starring

15 April 2015 10:37 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jason Sudeikis is taking over the role of Fletch from Chevy Chase, as the new movie moves forward...

The reboot of the Fletch movies has been mooted for some time, with Kevin Smith signed up way back in 2000 set to write and direct a reboot. Smith would remain attached until late 2005, with casting proving to be a major problem in getting a new Fletch moving.

Then, in 2007, Zach Braff was in line to play young Fletch, for Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence. Yet Lawrence left the film in the middle of the year, and Steve Pink (who has since directed the Hot Tub Time Machine movies) landed the job.

Fletch remains in development hell though, with the project landing at Warner Bros in 2011. It wasn't until 2013 that it got somewhere with a new Fletch, though, when it locked down Jason Sudeikis to take on the lead role.

The latest update, then? »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 review: Stick to your DeLoreans and phone boxes

8 April 2015 5:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Steve Pink; Screenwriter: Josh Heald; Starring: Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Adam Scott; Running time: 93 mins; Certificate: 15

2010's Hot Tub Time Machine came as a pleasant surprise. What looked like a dreadful frat-boy comedy with a silly premise was actually a genuinely funny and (at times) clever sci-fi comedy. It was only a matter of time for a sequel to be made, but has it come five years too late?

The sequel picks up where the first instalment left off, in a fantasy world where Lou (Rob Corddry) invented Google and Nick (Craig Robinson) has ripped off loads of pop songs years before they were meant to come out.

Sadly, John Cusack sat this one out as Adam, which is a shame as he brought a certain essence of seniority and was the gang's de facto leader. Without him there is a small void and the three main »

Jared Hess To Direct "Overnight" Film

6 March 2015 6:05 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jared Hess ("Napoleon Dynamite," "Nacho Libre") has signed on to helm the freshly retitled "Overnight at 42nd Street". Oren Uziel ("22 Jump Street") wrote the screenplay while Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur are producing.

The story follows a recently-divorced father and son who win the opportunity to spend the night in a major toy store. While trying to patch up his relationship with his son, the father must also try to defuse a hostage situation that develops at the store.

Hess takes over from Steve Pink ("Hot Tub Time Machine 2") who became attached to direct in June last year but has since dropped out. Will Ferrell was also attached to star at one point, but he's also no longer involved.

'Napoleon Dynamite' Director Set to Stay 'Overnight at 42nd Street'

5 March 2015 3:37 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink and Zombieland helmer Ruben Fleischer were linked to direct the Disney family comedy Overnight last year, it appears a new director will get behind the camera instead. The film, which is now called Overnight at 42nd Street, will be under the direction of Jared Hess the man who brought us Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre and Gentlemen Broncos. For those just joining us, the film is described as Home Alone in a toy store where a father and son win the chance to sleepover at an incredible toy store, but it just so happens to be on the night that some guys try to rob it. That's a fun premise for a comedy, maybe even inspired by Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, where the toy store Duncan's Toy Chest comes into play. Variety reports at one time, Will Ferrell was going to play the father, »

'Napoleon Dynamite' Director Takes on Disney's 'Overnight'

5 March 2015 3:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess has signed on to direct Overnight at 42nd Street, which was formerly known as Overnight. Steve Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine 2) became attached to direct the project in June 2014, but it appears he is no longer involved at this time. Will Ferrell was also attached to star at one point, when his company Gary Sanchez Productions was set to produce, but he isn't involved at this time either.

The story centers on a recently-divorced father and son who win the opportunity to spend the night in a toy store, reminiscent of Fao Schwartz. While trying to patch up his relationship with his son, the father must also try to defuse a hostage situation that develops at the store. The plot is described as Home Alone set in a toy store. Disney is looking to cast both the father and son before moving forward with the production. »

TBS Greenlights Comedy Series From ‘The Daily Show’s’ Samantha Bee & Jason Jones

24 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Daily Show” duo Samantha Bee and Jason Jones have been handed a 10-episode series order from TBS for a comedy inspired by their own family road trips, Variety has learned.

The husband-and-wife team will exec produce the series, with Jones starring. Rounding out the cast are Natalie Zea (“Justified,” “The Following”), Ashley Gerasimovich (“Louie”) and Liam Carroll (“The Neighbors”).

The series, described as an honest and darkly comedic look at family, follows a couple and their two kids on a road trip to Florida. Jones stars as unfiltered dad Nate, who packs his wife, Robin (Zea), along with their rebellious daughter Delilah (Gerasimovich) and simpleton son Jared (Carroll), into the family car for what he believes will be the adventure of a lifetime, which quickly turns into a disaster.

“This show delivers on exactly the direction we are taking our TBS comedies — honest, smart and provocative,” said Brett Weitz, »
