‘Young Guns’, ‘Major League’ & ‘Ace Ventura’ Reboots All On The Way

We’re getting word from the trade papers that plans to develop reboots for Young Guns, Major League and Ace Ventura are well underway at the rebranded Morgan Creek company, Morgan Creek Entertainment Group. According to Deadline, the company is making a big push across television, features and digital, and is keen to revive brands from their extensive back-catalogue, the aforementioned all fall within. The trade blog also mentions that there are also discussions with a showrunner for a Dead Ringers series reboot.

Deadline reports that McEg president David Robinson said that the Ace Ventura project will be “a mainstream theatrical production relaunch,” and very much not to a straight remake but a new film in the spirit of the original, “Because it’s episodic in nature, about a pet detective, it also lends itself to a traditional single-camera series franchise.” So, to TV it goes then?

Five Things You Didn’t Know about Casey Siemaszko

If you don’t recognize him then try to picture a scruffy brown beard, a long duster, and a naive glimmer in his eyes that spoke of a willingness to prove himself but an inability to ever really believe that he was capable of anything. Still no? Try a pair of 3D glasses and a slicked back hairdo. If neither of these ring a bell then you might have missed out on some of Casey’s best cinema appearances in Back to the Future and Young Guns. Such a shame. Of course if you’ve followed him for a while and those references

Exclusive interview with actor Richard Tyson

david j. moore chats with actor Richard Tyson

A busy actor since making his auspicious cinematic debut as perhaps the greatest movie bully of all time in Three O’clock High (1988), Richard Tyson always makes an impression when you see him on screen. He’s done everything from sexy and suave (Two Moon Junction, 1988) to being the bad guy (Kindergarten Cop, 1990), and he’s also done comedy in three different Farrelly Brothers pictures (Kingpin, 1996, There’s Something About Mary, 1998, and Me, Myself, and Irene, 2000). He’s been extremely active as a character actor in notable films like Battlefield Earth (2000), Black Hawk Down (2001), and different horror films such as Big Bad Wolf (2006) and 2015’s Bound to Vengeance, which casts him against type. Tyson, who’s done extensive work in theater, has run the gamut of acting, and he’s never stopped working since his humble beginnings as a kid from Mobile,

Back in 2011, Nike actually realeased a screen accurate version of Marty McFly's future sneaks, which were called the Nike Mag and were produced in extremely limited qualities. They did not, however, feature the power laces. At the time,

Back to the Future Part II Nike Power Laces Coming in 2015

Back to the Future Part II Nike Power Laces Coming in 2015
Fans of Back to the Future Part II have something to look forward to next year. Nike designer Tinker Hatfield has confirmed that the shoe company will release power laces inspired by the 1989 sequel next year. Here's what he had to say, during an appearance at Jordan Brand's Flight Lab space in New Orleans over the weekend.

"Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say Yes!"

Of course, the year 2015 is when the beloved sequel was set, making it the perfect time for these power laces to debut. However, it isn't known if Nike is releasing the Mag shoe that they designed for the movie, which were worn by Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), or if the power laces will be used on other shoes.

Back in 2011, Nike created 1,500 pairs of the Mag shoes with the self-lacing feature that contours the shoe to each individual's feet, for a ten-day eBay auction,

'Killing Kennedy': Rob Lowe, Ginnifer Goodwin bring Bill O' Reilly's JFK docudrama to life

On Nov. 22, America and the world mark the 50th anniversary of one of the most momentous events of the 20th century, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

As it did last year with "Killing Lincoln," National Geographic Channel has turned to another best-seller by Fox News' Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard to dramatize the occasion.

Premiering Sunday, Nov. 10, the docudrama version of "Killing Kennedy" follows the twin trajectories of JFK and Lee Harvey Oswald until they meet on that fateful day in Dallas' Dealey Plaza.

Directed by Nelson McCormick from a script by Kelly Masterson, "Killing Kennedy" stars Rob Lowe as JFK, Ginnifer Goodwin as first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, Will Rothhaar as Lee Harvey Oswald, Michelle Trachtenberg as Marina Oswald, Jack Noseworthy as Bobby Kennedy, Casey Siemaszko as Jack Ruby, Francis Guinan as Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Flood as Kennedy insider Kenneth O'Donnell.

TV Review: ‘Killing Kennedy’

TV Review: ‘Killing Kennedy’
Having scored record ratings with a movie adaptation of “Killing Lincoln,” the first in Bill O’Reilly’s “Fox News clearly doesn’t pay me enough” book series, National Geographic Channel’s decision to air “Killing Kennedy” timed to the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination was a no-brainer. That’s also an apt description of this once-over-lightly treatment, which alternates between Kennedy and Oswald with nary a fresh beat, dutifully replicating scenes with all the finesse of reality-show reenactments. Rob Lowe and Ginnifer Goodwin lend the project star power as John and Jackie Kennedy, but the overall approach amounts to hair-styling and costume design in search of an actual movie.

Too often feeling like a book report version of history (especially compared to the numerous productions based on this material, most recently the miniseries “The Kennedys”), the movie races through JFK’s election, the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban

23 High School Movies That Get The Passing Grade

Considering it's where most of us (bar the weird home-schooled kids) spend our crucial formative years, where we have our first fights, our first loves, our first tentative steps into adulthood, it's no surprise that high school has long been a popular setting for movies. A range of genres (though generally leaning towards comedy) have taken place in those hallways, particularly from the 1980s onwards, when John Hughes, among others, made an entire career out of the lives and loves of 15-18 year olds.

The latest film to head back to class is "21 Jump Street" (review here) the big-screen reboot of the '80s TV show, which stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as youthful-looking cops who are sent back to high school in order to bust a drug-running ring. While you might assume this to be another lazy remake, you'd be very wrong, as Tatum, Hill, co-writer Michael Bacall,

Exclusive: Emilio Estevez Talks the Future of Young Guns

Exclusive: Emilio Estevez Talks the Future of Young Guns
We're huge fans of Emilio Estevez, and even bigger fans of his 1988 Western Young Guns and its sequel, Young Guns II. Thus far, the movie has not been put up for a remake or a reboot, but a sequel has long been hoped for by many of its cast members, and those who hold the film in high regard. We recently caught up with Emilio Estevez, who directs and co-stars in this weekend's The Way. We couldn't help but ask the star, who is quite selective nowadays when it comes to taking on a project, about the future of Young Guns. To hear what he had to say, click on the clip below.

365 Days, 100 Films #50 - Stand By Me (1986)

Stand By Me, 1986.

Directed by Rob Reiner.

Starring Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Jerry O'Connell, Corey Feldman, Kiefer Sutherland, Bradley Gregg, Casey Siemaszko, John Cusack, Gary Riley and Richard Dreyfuss.

Synopsis:

Four young boys go looking for a dead body in late 50s America.

“I was 12 going on 13 the first time I saw a dead human being…”

The film’s melancholy first line, in voice over, echoes around the man onscreen. He sits in a car on an empty road reading the paper. It’s open on a story of a slain lawyer, shot dead in an attempt to break up a fight. It triggers that memory – a missing child, knocked down by a train, he and his friends had found in the woods. Not the corpse of his own, beloved brother who had died the year before, at whose funeral he did not cry.

The scene is a bookend. We

Dermot Mulroney Wants to Do Young Guns: The Ghost of Dirty Steve!

Dermot Mulroney Wants to Do Young Guns: The Ghost of Dirty Steve!
We couldn't be bigger fans of the movie Young Guns, specifically the character Dirty Steve. So when we get a chance to chat with actor Dermot Mulroney, we jump on it.

Dermot Mulroney stars in the new comedy The Family Tree, which hits theaters this Friday, August 26th. While chatting with the guy, whom we love, about his role as a father going through a midlife crisis, we couldn't help but go back to Dirty Steve and his past exploits. As it turns out, Dermot Mulroney would love to see the character return in a spin-off called Young Guns: The Ghost of Dirty Steve.

"All the kids that were watching Young Guns when they were fourteen or fifteen, right when it came out, and everyone got VCRs? They watched it over and over again. You know what happened to them? They all grew up and got jobs. Now, when we talk,

'Stand by Me' at 25 -- The Stars' Oral History of Their Beloved Classic

Filed under: Celebrity Interviews, Features, Best Movies Ever, Hot Topic

In celebration of its 25th anniversary, Rob Reiner's seminal classic 'Stand by Me' was released on Blu-ray for the first time this week. The movie, set in the 1950s, tells a bittersweet tale of four adolescent friends who go off into the woods in search of a rumored dead body that may or not be a missing young boy they know. They must also find this body before the bullying Ace Merrill (Kiefer Sutherland) and his gang, the Cobras, get to it. What follows is a poignant coming-of-age tale about childhood adventures in the summer and the pain of growing up.

'Stand by Me' was an immediate success, touching a nerve with audiences young and old. To celebrate the film's 25th anniversary, Moviefone spoke with director Rob Reiner and several of the film's stars: Wil Wheaton

[DVD Review] Stand by Me - 25th Anniversary

Some subgenres see pretty clear divides run down their middle according to certain criteria. One is the buddy comedy, where depending on the film’s intent to target male or female audiences, there will be a pretty safe difference in the kind of comedy used. Look at Dumb and Dumber and Clueless, each one caters safely to one gender or the other, though both films can arguably be enjoyed by both. Then you have the coming of age drama where this divide persists. Again you have a great parallel between Stand by Me and Now & Then, stories about revisiting a key point in youth. As a guy, I may be somewhat biased, but for my money both Dumb and Dumber and Stand by Me win in their respective categories by miles; Stand by Me however is miles ahead of its counterpart and stands up to the test of time in many ways.

The Top 13 Movie Team-Ups

To celebrate Lionsgate’s UK release of The Expendables on DVD and Blu-ray on December 13th, we here at Blogomatic3000 thought we’d take a look at our favourite team-ups in movie history…

13) Bubba Ho-Tep

Who else but Phantasm director Don Coscarelli could bring you a tale that sees an elderly Elvis team up with JFK to to battle an evil Egyptian mummy who has chosen their East Texas rest home as his hunting grounds. Based on the award-winning short story by Joe R. Lansdale, Bubba Ho-Tep is a movie that needs to be seen to be believed, and is possibly Bruce Campbell’s greatest performance.

12) Dead Heat

What says team-up more than a cop teaming up with his dead partner to take down zombie criminals? That’s the basic plot of Dead Heat, which follows cops Roger Mortis and Doug Bigelow as they try and solve a case that
