Mark Wahlberg, Patrick Stewart Praise Seth MacFarlane’s Originality at ‘Ted 2′ Premiere

25 June 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Universal Pictures gave creator-director-star Seth MacFarlane the greenlight to make a sequel to his surprise hit “Ted” after it grossed nearly $550 million at the worldwide box office in 2012 to become the highest-grossing original R-rated comedy of all time, he vowed to make the tale about a man (Mark Wahlberg) and his foul-mouthed teddy bear as smart, witty and fun as the original despite the enormous expectations.

“To be honest, there was some personal pressure, but my goal was to tell a completely new story and not rehash the same movie twice,” MacFarlane told Variety at the world premiere of “Ted 2″ held at New York’s Ziegfeld Theatre on Wednesday. “We wanted to do an entirely new story that explores an entirely new aspect of Ted’s life and evolve the character with funny jokes.

Universal Studios is gearing up its “Kojak” movie with playwright Philip Gawthorne on board for Vin Diesel’s bigscreen version of the Telly Savalas cop series.

Gawthorne recently signed on to write the script for Lionsgate’s remake of sci-fi thriller “Cube.” His TV credits include the BBC series “Eastenders,” “Casualty” and “Holby City.”

Kojak” is being produced by Diesel’s Universal-based One Race Films with Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark. Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the writing team behind James Bond films including “The World Is Not Enough” and “Skyfall,” joined the project in 2012 to write a previous draft.

Diesel, the star of “Furious 7,” announced on June 17 that he’s been asked by Lionsgate to reprise his starring role in a sequel to “The Last Witch Hunter,” which opens in October.

Kojak” debuted in 1973 with Savalas as a tough New York City cop with a penchant for Tootsie Pops. »

Vin Diesel’s Kojak Adaptation Taps A Scribe

19 June 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You can’t blame Hollywood for being hot on Vin Diesel right now – the actor is a killer box-office draw whose last two films, Furious 7 and Guardians of the Galaxy, were box office smashes. Just recently, Lionsgate made moves to secure Diesel for a new franchise that will kick off with this fall’s The Last Witch Hunter, and now Universal is doubling down on the star as well, recruiting scribe Philip Gawthorne to pen an adaptation of the TV series Kojak for Diesel to star in.

The original series aired from 1973 to 1978 on CBS and starred Telly Savalas as New York City Police Department Detective Lieutenant Theo Kojak. The character, a tough but honest cop with a cynical streak, was known for his love of Tootsie Roll Pops and for the catchphrase, “Who loves ya, baby?”

Gawthorne will be building a franchise around the character, who will be played by Diesel. »

Ted 2 Trailer Brings down the Thunder

18 June 2015 8:56 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If it's Nsfw hijinks you're looking for, you might want to check out the recently released red-band trailer for Ted 2 because this new cut is pretty tame. It's also a little short on story except to show that things are not going so well for Ted and company. In the sequel to the R-rated comedy hit, Ted (Seth MacFarlane) and his new bride Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth) want to adopt, but the magical teddy bear first has to prove his personhood in a court of law. Enter Amanda Seyfried as a young lawyer who attempts to train Ted and his thunder buddy John (Mark Wahlberg) how to behave in a court of law. Good luck. The new trailer is Ok, but lacks the comedic punch of some of the earlier looks. Does that mean that the MacFarlane project is only funny when there's swearing, immature humor, and drug use involved? »
