Greetings from Tromaville everyone! Yes, I was permitted to walk the halls of Troma Studios today for an exclusive interview with legendary low-budget filmmaker Lloyd Kaufman (which will be posted in full tomorrow), but I’ve got a hefty report for you all in the meantime. There’s some good news, some bad news, and of course – some strange news.
Let’s start off with the biggest bombshell for those of us gearing up to see Steve Pink’s remake of The Toxic Avenger, which was supposed to have Austrian muscle-head Arnold Schwarzenegger attached as a major character. Here’s the key phrase – supposed to. While IMDb still might have Arnie listed as the only cast member announced as of yet, it looks like the newly rejuvenated action star is no longer attached. While talking to Lloyd, he mentioned the following snippet:
Wgtc: I love that Arnold Schwarzenegger has committed »

The hilarious 2003 cult comedy Bad Santa saw Billy Bob Thornton as a Grinch-like department store Santa Claus, who alongside his dwarf sidekick (Tony Cox), used their position to rob the store of its expensive contents and annual takings. The film has gone on the become a firm festive favourite but sadly, the original director Terry Zwigoff has stated he has “no interest in sequels”, so a follow film has struggled to make it to the big-screen despite Thornton being desperate to reprise his role.
Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink was attached to the project early last year, with Entourage creator Doug Ellin tasked with penning the screenplay. Since then, things have remained rather quiet. While it’s been a long time coming, Thornton has confirmed his loathsome (yet loveable) alcoholic character of Willie T. Stokes will return to cinema screens soon.
“It’s been very hard trying to get the script right. »

Billy Bob Thornton has been pushing for a sequel to his 2003 "Bad Santa" comedy ever since the original film hit theaters. But there have been script issues and director Terry Zwigoff said that he has "no interest in sequels." Despite all the bad news, Thornton has now confirmed that "Bad Santa 2" will begin shooting in 2014. "It's been very hard trying to get the script right. We've been through three or four drafts but we're getting real close," he explained. "Then there's the business dealings to sort out, all the stuff I don't understand. But one way or another, the sequel will happen and the idea is to shoot it next year." He went on to admit that "we'll never beat the first film," adding: "but we'll get as close as we can." Steve Pink (Grosse Pointe Blank, High Fidelity) has stepped in to direct from a script by "Entourage" creator Doug Ellin. »

It appears that the Hot Tub Time Machine sequel will be hitting theaters sooner rather than later. Production on Hot Tub Time Machine 2 took place this past summer with Steve Pink returning to direct and Clark Duke, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, and Chevy Chase reprising their roles from the 2010 time travel comedy, but Adam Scott took over the lead role from John Cusack, playing the grown-up son of Cusack’s character. While the film was expected to be in theaters sometime next year, we recently interviewed Scott and Clark in anticipation of the release of the comedy A.C.O.D., and the duo revealed that Hot Tub Time Machine 2 may be in theaters by March 2014. “I think Hot Tub comes out in the spring,” said Scott, after which Duke chimed in and clarified, “In March.” A specific date is unclear, but the first film hit theaters on March 26, 2010 and became a modest box office hit. »

2014 is shaping up to be the Year of Kevin Hart. The actor’s steady rise to fame has landed him major roles in four films next year - Grudge Match, Ride Along, About Last Night, and Think Like a Man Too. Now all he needs to do is lay low after 2014, pop back up twelve years later for another Year of Kevin Hart, and he might finally become part of the Chinese zodiac. But twelve years is a long time to wait, so entertain yourselves with the newest trailer for About Last Night: From the trailer, this looks to be your run-of-the-mill romantic comedy. But About Last Night has a few things going for it (and a few going against it). In the “for” column is Hart and that the film is based off a David Mamet play entitled Sexual Perversity in Chicago (which was already adapted once, way back in 1986), so it’s definitely got »

A new trailer has just landed for director Steve Pink's remake of the comedy About Last Night. The film stars Kevin Hart (Think Like a Man) whose character's relationship with his girlfriend (Regina Hall) is going stale, even as he sets his friend (Michael Ealy) up with his girl's roommate (Joy Bryant). There are plenty of honest laughs to be found but Hart absolutely steals every scene he's in (at least in this trailer). See what Pink had to say about the film in a recent interview, and keep an eye out for interviews with Hart, Hall and Ealy. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer. Also starring Paula Patton, About Last Night opens February 14, 2014.

Kevin Hart is on the precipice of stardom if he isn't already there. The comic actor has been paying his dues ever since his memorable appearance in "The Forty Year-Old Virgin" and this summer scored a surprise box office hit with his standup special "Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain." And with big roles coming in "Grudge Match," "Think Like A Man Too" and "Ride Along" coming up we're going to be seen a lot more of him, including in the upcoming remake of the '80s nugget "About Last Night." Co-starring Paula Patton, Michael Ealy and Regina Hall, the film centers on the ups and downs of modern love and life, refreshingly told via an all black cast. But whether or not it can be anything more than your standard relationship-com will depend on the script by Leslye Headland ("Bachelorette") and director Steve Pink ("Hot Tub Time Machine"), and this »

On a brisk night in late October of last year, I was invited to go to a bar in downtown Los Angeles. To those who know me, this may not come as a shocking revelation. However, not a single drop of alcohol was consumed that night, because I did not go to the Broadway Bar to drink, but instead to visit the set of Screen Gems' comedy remake About Last Night. The entire, spacious bar was shut down for the production, which was shooting a Halloween party scene. In fact, not only were the actors dressed up in elaborate costumes, but many of the crew members were as well, since this particular shooting date was less than a week from the actual holiday, and it was actually their second to last day of production.
Watch the first trailer for Steve Pink's About Last Night romantic comedy starring Kevin Hart, Michael Ealy, Joy Bryant, Paula Patton, Christopher McDonald, Regina Hall, Adam Rodriguez and Bryan Callen. A modern re-imagining of the classic romantic comedy, this contemporary version closely follows new love for two couples as they journey from the bar to the bedroom and are eventually put to the test in the real world. This is quite a solid first trailer, which you can see below via the player. Would you watch? If so, catch it on Valentine's Day, 2014 via Screen Gems. The film is scripted by Leslye Headland based on the screenplay by Tim Kazurinsky and Denise DeClue, in turn based on "Sexual Perversity in Chicago" by David Mamet. »
Unless you are of a certain age, you might not even realize that Steve Pink.s About Last Night is an update of an earlier film (which we.ll talk about in a little bit). Which is actually fine, because if Kevin Hart and Regina Hall can bring their own heat to this upcoming romantic comedy, there won.t be any reason to think about the original About Last Night because we.ll all be having too much fun with the remake. The latest trailer arrived on YouTube via Sony Pictures. We have it for you above. Originally, About Last Night was a 1986 dramedy starring Rob Lowe and Demi Moore that, itself, was based on a 1974 David Mamet play. It focuses on two couples through different stages of their relationships, from the initial hook up to the carnal celebration . to the possible decline, for various reasons. This new version plays »
It's an all-too-rare coincidence when a holiday celebrated in a movie is actually taking place while that movie is being filmed. But when we visit the set of director Steve Pink's About Last Night . the upcoming remake of the 1986 romantic comedy starring Rob Lowe and Demi Moore . we find ourselves smiling at this occurrence. It's late October in Los Angeles, and we're in a downtown bar during the last week of shooting; in which a scene is taking place at a Halloween party, appropriately decked out in orange, black, and purple. Bernie and Joan (actors Kevin Hart and Regina Hall) are in costume, as Channing Tatum (in Magic Mike ) and Beyonce. But the bloom is apparently off the two lovers' relationship, as they trade barbs that quickly erupt into a shouting match, ending with Bernie »

One whole year before the film was slated for release, a red band trailer for About Last Night surfaced. The film is a remake of the film of the same name from 1986, but this time Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink is at the helm with Kevin Hart and Michael Ealy taking the male leads as two best friends involved in new relationships. Regina Hall and Joy Bryant play their significant others, and this looks like a grounded, but familiar romantic comedy. Hart doesn't really strike the right comedic tone with me, so this isn't something I'm looking forward to, but surely there's an audience who will be sold on this flick. Here's the new theatrical trailer for Steve Pink's About Last Night from YouTube: Directed by Steve Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine) and written by Leslye Headland (Bachelorette), About Last Night is a contemporary remake of the »

Hot Tub Time Machine’s sequel will have Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke and Chevy Chase reprising their roles, and will be joined by Adam Scott and Gillian Jacobs. However, unfortunately John Cusack will not be returning but Scott will be playing his son, as Corddry explains:
‘Adam Scott is playing his son from 10 years in the future. His son that was conceived in 1986 on the night with Jenny Stedmeyer.’
Due to an alteration in the timeline at the end of Hot Tub Time Machine (Butterfly Effect anyone?), Corddry’s character Lou is a billionaire who practically owns New Orleans.
