‘Overkill’ Slices Crazy With Tom Arnold and Allison Munn

5 December 2008 2:01 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

It takes quite an acting performance to outshine Tom Arnold on the koo-koo front, but Overkill, the new comedy web series from 60Frames debuting this week has accomplished just that. You see, it's his daughter Carrie (Allison Munn) who takes the bonkers cake in this one, a pretty young lady with a zesty penchant for serial killers. Allison Munn has been playing crazy so long I'm starting to wonder what's going on there. Yes, I remember her from That '70s Show as Fez's' psycho-possessive girlfriend Caroline. Apparently so do Overkill creators Jeffrey Ventimilia and Joshua Sternin who incidentally produced That 70's Show a few years back. Her scrunchy-faced brand of crazy really got going as Cindy in ABC's short-lived half-hour Carpoolers, and it lends a polish to this otherwise risky storyline. The story picks up at Episode 1: "Dead Man Walking" (above) with a quiet young retail clerk Henry Graham »

Weekend Movie News Wrap Up: October 5, 2008

5 October 2008 10:54 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Welcome to another news filled edition of the Weekend Movie News Wrap Up.

This week:

We check out the weekend box office; Steven Seagal ponders Under Seige 3, Men In Black 3 is a possible threat; Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro Paint Houses; Yogi Bear is coming to a cinema near you; we hear how long Watchmen runs and has Nolan signed for Batman 3?

 

Box Office

Shame on you America. Beverly Hills Chihuahua should bark up around $30 million over the weekend. I think the less I say about it the better.

Meanwhile, Shia LeBoeuf‘s Eagle Eye should rake in another $17-$18 million on it’s second weekend. The Richard Gere / Diane Lane rom-dram Nights In Rodanthe tumbled 50% from last weekend. The comedy Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist should bank about $15 million, while the Ed Harris directed western Appaloosa should shoot up around $5 million by Monday. You could say that it’s an Appa-winna! »

Warner Bros. planning Yogi Bear feature

2 October 2008 8:01 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

***image1*** Warner Bros. are planning a feature length film based on Yogi Bear, the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon character.

The Hollywood Reporters says Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia (That 70's Show, Tooth Fairy) are writing a script for the proposed film, which will be a live-action/animated hybrid along the lines of Alvin And The Chipmunks, which was released earlier this year.

The film will feature live-action actors, but Yogi and sidekick Boo Boo will be CG. »

Big Screen Bears

2 October 2008 3:59 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

We just love bears here at ComicMix. Be it real bears, scary bears, Gummi Bears or Care Bears, we can't get enough of these furry fellas! That's why we're pleased as punch to report that two famous bears are coming to a big screen near you.

Up first, Warner Bros. has announced a live-action feature version of Yogi Bear, based on the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon. Ash Brannon (Surf's Up) is attached to direct, while Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia (Tooth Fairy, executive producers on That 70's Show) are writing the screenplay. The film is said to be a live-action/animated hybrid along the lines of the recent Alvin and the Chipmunks. Yogi, who first appeared on The Huckleberry Hound Show before launching his own series in 1961, will be done in CG alongside his sidekick, Boo Boo. The majority of the film will be shot in live action.

Yogi Bear Gets the Big Screen Treatment -- No, I'm Not Kidding.

2 October 2008 3:15 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Sometimes I oooh over talk of re-energizing an old franchise; sometimes I cringe and sometimes, like today, my brow is so damned furrowed that I probably have about 20 new wrinkles. The Hollywood Reporter posts that Warner Bros. is going back to Yogi Bear and YellowJellystone Park.

Oh yes, the Hanna-Barbera classic is getting developed into a big-screen feature by the pens of Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia, with Ash Brannon attached to direct. That means a mixture of That 70's Show exec producers and the co-writer and director of Surf's Up. It will be live-action with a CG Yogi and Boo Boo.

Now sure, the chipmunks made a comeback, but at least they have an uber popular Christmas song that keeps them in the memory banks. Something like Speed Racer had the effects going for it. Will kids go wild for a character from the '50s that gets into good-natured fun at a park? »

Jellystone Park Goes Live-Action

2 October 2008 5:50 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

I have as many fond memories of Yogi the Bear as anyone else does, but I've always preferred him in his hand-drawn, 10-minute-long adventures rather than anything drawn-out or, God forbid, live-action. But I don't make movies, and Yogi isn't exactly pulling in millions of dollars in re-runs, so of course, he and Boo-Boo will be stealing picnic baskets on the big screen. The Hollywood Reporter announced that Surf's Up director Ash Brannon will be in charge of the movie, with the writers of the new Rock movie The Tooth Fairy, Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia, writing the screenplay. The movie will be inspired by last year's surprise hit Alvin and the Chipmunks, and that information alone should be enough to scare you. Human characters will get to take part in the fun, while Yogi and Boo-Boo will remain animated. »

Yogi to the big screen

2 October 2008 12:57 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

After the puzzling success of Alvin And The Chipmunks, you knew it was only a matter of time before more films based on 50s-era cartoons were headed into production. Now we get word that Warner Bros. is hard at work on a feature version of Yogi Bear that would replicate Alvin's live-action/CGI hybrid. Yes you will see Yogi and Boo-Boo as actual bears who can talk (and presumably wear ties). Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia, who wrote the upcoming Dwayne "Not The Rock" »

Yogi, Boo-Boo headed to big time

1 October 2008 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

New York -- Warner Bros. is taking a trip to Jellystone Park.

The studio is developing a feature version of "Yogi Bear," the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon, and "Surf's Up" co-helmer/co-writer Ash Brannon is attached to direct.

Endeavor-repped Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia, who exec produced "That '70s Show" and are writing the feature "Tooth Fairy" for Fox, are penning the screenplay. Donald De Line is producing via his De Line Pictures; Karen Rosenfelt is also producing, with Jon Berg overseeing for Warners.

The project, culled from Warners' vast library, is planned as a live-action/animated hybrid along the lines of Fox's 2007 hit "Alvin & the Chipmunks." Much of the movie will be live-action, but Yogi Bear and sidekick Boo Boo will be done in CG.

Yogi Bear first appeared as a supporting character in 1958 in another classic cartoon, "The Huckleberry Hound Show." In 1961, he got his own show, which has »

Julie Andrews joins 'Tooth Fairy'

8 September 2008 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Julie Andrews has earned her wings.

The actress will join Dwayne Johnson and Ashley Judd in Fox's family comedy "Tooth Fairy."

Also on board are "Extras" star Stephen Merchant, who also co-created "The Office," and pro skateboarder Ryan Sheckler (MTV's "Life of Ryan").

The film centers on Derek Thompson (Johnson), a minor-league hockey player whose nickname is the Tooth Fairy because of his ability to knock out opposing players' teeth. Judd plays his girlfriend.

When he discourages a youngster's hope, Derek is ordered to one week's hard labor as a real tooth fairy, complete with wings, magic wand and frilly tutu. Along the way, he rediscovers his forgotten dreams.

Andrews, repped by Wma, will play Lily, a high-ranking, acerbic supervisor with the Tooth Fairy Department charged with overseeing Derek's stint as a tooth fairy.

Endeavor-repped Merchant plays Tracy, a socially awkward tooth fairy who has not yet earned his wings »

ABC Studios terminates nearly 30 overall deals

12 January 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

ABC Studios has become the first TV studio to terminate overall deals under the force majeure provision in its producers' deals.

In a major housecleaning Friday, close to 30 writing and nonwriting producers who don't have active projects have been axed.

The list includes nonwriting producers Nina Wass and Gene Stein, whose company had been based at ABC Studios since its launch in 2000 and had produced series like "Less Than Perfect". (Wass had been at the studio since 1999.)

It also in?cludes "Brothers & Sisters" creator/executive producer Jon Robin Baitz, who recently blasted ABC Studios and ABC over his ouster from the show in a widely publicized blog posting.

Also let go are "Borat" helmer Larry Charles, with whom the studio inked a multimillion-dollar deal in March, and ABC Studios-based actor-producer Taye Diggs, whose producing deal was extended for two more years in February when he signed on to star on the ABC/ABC Studios drama "Private Practice".

Also said to have received termination letters from ABC Studios are the writing teams of Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia ("Kitchen Confidential"), Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah ("What About Brian"), Elisa Zuritsky and Julie Rottenberg ("Sex and the City") as well as writers Jack Kenny ("In Case of Emergency"), Bill Callahan ("Scrubs") and Ken Biller ("Smallville") and producer Sean Bailey ("Gone Baby Gone").

"The ongoing strike has had a significant detrimental impact on development and production, so we are forced to make the difficult decision to release a number of talented, respected individuals from their development deals," an ABC Studios spokeswoman said Friday. »
