The 'Freaks and Geeks' Cast Will Reunite at the TV Land Awards

9 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Freaks and Geeks" fans, rejoice: The cast is slated to reunite at the upcoming TV Land Awards.

The beloved one-season wonder will receive the 15th Anniversary Award at the ceremony, with TV Land announcing in a press release that despite its short run from 1999-2000, the show "continues to find new fans every year." One of the reasons for that, no doubt, is the stellar ensemble that creator Paul Feig and co. assembled (casting director Allison Jones snagged the series's sole Emmy for her work), and TV Land revealed that almost every single main actor from the series will be present at the awards show.

Scheduled to appear are Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Linda Cardellini, Busy Philipps, Samm Levine, Martin Starr, David Gruber Allen, and Steve Bannos. Feig and producer Judd Apatow are also confirmed.

In addition to that star-studded lineup, the awards will also feature a performance by Jennifer Hudson, »

Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel in “The End of the Tour”

Champaign, Illinois isn’t quite Cannes or Park City, Utah, but the film festival hosted there annually in Roger Ebert’s name is as charming as they come. Now Ebertfest, in its 17th year, has announced its lineup of films prior to its four day run in April.

It was previously announced that Jean-Luc Godard’s acclaimed Goodbye to Language 3D would be the opening night film. Now Chaz Ebert has penned a touching love letter to her late husband detailing the choices they’ve made for the festival in his absence.

Among them are James Ponsoldt’s The End of the Tour, Ramin Bahrani’s 99 Homes, Roy Andersson’s A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting On Existence, Céline Sciamma’s Girlhood, and special screenings of A Bronx Tale with Robert De Niro and the 1926 silent film The Son of the Sheik »

New Projects: Patty Hearst, ‘Barbershop 3′, and a Lego spinoff

26 March 2015 11:07 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Just days after the 39th anniversary of the conviction of Patty Hearst back on March 20, 1976, Deadline is reporting that Fox 2000 has acquired the rights to a new, untitled book being written by Jeffrey Toobin about the life and kidnapping of Hearst. The writers behind Big Eyes, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, will be adapting Toobin’s account.

Deadline is also speculating the role might also be in development for Jennifer Lawrence, but those talks are currently preliminary.

Hearst was 20 when she was kidnapped from her wealthy parents in the Hearst Publishing Family. She was later found to have changed her name to Tania and had joined up with her kidnappers, the Symbionese Liberation Army and eventually robbed a bank in San Francisco. Hearst’s story, based on her own novel, was first adapted into a film in 1988 by Paul Schrader, with Natasha Richardson in the role. Hearst is now 61.

Jason Segel and Drew Pearce developing The Lego Movie spin-off The Billion Brick Race

26 March 2015 5:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After the success of last year’s The Lego Movie, it seems Warner Bros. is intent on getting as much mileage out of the franchise as possible, with THR reporting that Jason Segel (The Muppets) and Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) are set to write and direct a new spin-off movie entitled The Billion Brick Race.

The project is based on an original idea by Pearce, although plot details are being kept under wraps for the time being. The movie will be produced by The Lego Movie helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, along with Dan Lin and Roy Lee.

The Billion Brick Race is the fourth Lego movie on Warner’s upcoming slate, after Lego Ninjago in 2016, The Lego Batman Movie in 2017 and The Lego Movie 2 in 2018.
