Adam DeVine to take Paternity Leave for New Line Cinema

21 April 2016 7:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Adam DeVine (Workaholics, Pitch Perfect) has signed on to lead New Line Cinema’s comedy Paternity Leave.

The project is described as having “shades of The Hangover and Wedding Crashers” and “centers on a group of immature bachelors who stage pregnancies in order to get time off and go on an all-expenses-paid trip.”

Paternity Leave has been in the works since 2005 and is based on a concept from Andrew Panay, who produces. Todd Strauss-Schulson (The Final Girls) is directing.

DeVine will next be seen opposite Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, which opens in August. Watch the trailer here.

Workaholics Star Adam Devine Tapped To Headline New Comedy Paternity Leave

20 April 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever the dependable supporting actor when it comes to comedy, Adam Devine looks set to make the jump to mainline star now that Deadline reports the actor has been tapped to headline Paternity Leave.

Hatched by New Line and director Todd Strauss-Schulson (Final Girls), the story follows “three immature friends who team with their pregnant friend to plan a hoax that would get them receive three months paternity leave.” That doesn’t sound too far removed from a plot that would appear in Comedy Central’s office sitcom, Workaholics. Indeed the ongoing series helped fire Devine into the limelight, who has since appeared across the Pitch Perfect franchise and, soon, matrimonial comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.

Working closely with Strauss-Schulson to develop Paternity Leave, next port of call for Devine will be assisting on script duties, and it’s safe to assume New Line will be busy scouting »

Adam Devine is attached to star in the New Line comedy “Paternity Leave” with Final Girls helmer Todd Strauss-Schulson set to direct.

The story follows three immature friends who team with their pregnant friend to plan a hoax that would get them receive three months paternity leave. Andrew Panay is producing.

Devine first broke through on his Comedy Central series “Workaholics.” As of late, the actor has moved toward the film side, starring in the “Pitch Perfect” franchise as well as the upcoming Fox comedy “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates,” which co-stars Zac Efron.

Devine recently received Cinemacon’s Comedy Stars of the Year Award with his “Mike and Dave” co-stars Efron and Anna Kendrick. Insiders tell Variety the studio felt it was time to let Devine carry his own picture.

Strauss-Schulson directed the cult horror film “The Final Girls,” starring Malin Akerman and Thomas Middleditch, and “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas. »

NYC Happenings: The Final Girls Kill At Midnight!

7 April 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Todd Strauss-Schulson's The Final Girls was a big hit outta SXSW 2015, where it quickly garnered praise as both a glowing love letter to and hardcore deconstruction of 80s slashers. The flick kept building momentum along the festival circuit throughout the year, and as is usual these days in our culture of volume, had a quick theatrical release before shuffling off to VOD. But the thing is The Final Girls by its very gleeful and gory nature, by the absolute horror legacy it holds, is a film that is best experienced in a movie theatre with an audience that is just as eager to laugh as they are to scream. While Midnight Movie culture generally commences around retrospectives of older filmic fare, The Final Girls...

Bruce Rosenblum Exits as Legendary Television and Digital Media Chief (Exclusive)

3 March 2016 1:01 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bruce Rosenblum has exited as president of Legendary Television and Digital Media after nearly three years at the company, which was acquired in January by Chinese conglom Dalian Wanda Group.

Rosenblum’s exit comes as Legendary has tapped film veteran Mary Parent to serve as vice chairman overseeing all aspects of film, TV and digital development and production.

Rosenblum joined Legendary in July 2013 after nearly 25 years at Warner Bros. and its Lorimar predecessor company, with the goal of overseeing the expansion of TV and digital media production. He also serves as chairman of the Television Academy, having extended his term through the end of this year.

Rosenblum’s departure is no surprise amid the changes at the company headed by Thomas Tull. Industry sources said Rosenblum had privately expressed a desire to move on from the company.

“Obviously, with the change at the top of Legendary, subsequent changes throughout the company were inevitable, »

The Veil Review

25 January 2016 3:44 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’ve always thought that Thomas Jane deserved more frequent zany roles, which The Veil certainly provides for him – it’s just a shame his twisted charisma will most likely go unnoticed. Phil Joanou’s cultish thriller (penned by Robert Ben Garant) is the latest Blumhouse indie to be unceremoniously dumped straight to Netflix, like last year’s backlog purge that included Mockingbird, Mercy, and a few other buried thrillers. But it’s not without reason, as questions of quality are answered within the film’s dreary first few scenes, even with Jessica Alba leading the show. Spiffy cultist ideas shine through, mixed with a supernatural story, but Joanou’s vision is the blandest shade of grey imaginable – or, in this case, visibly seen as a color-blocking filter in every shot.

Abla plays a filmmaker named Maggie Price, who returns to where her FBI agent father stumbled upon the largest mass-suicide in history, »
