'Ted 2' Lands William Shatner Cameo

17 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the more memorable moments in the raucous 2012 comedy Ted is where Flash Gordon star Sam J. Jones appears in a cameo as himself. It seems the sequel Ted 2 will have a similar scene featuring William Shatner as himself.

The Boston Herald reports that the actor will be appearing at a superhero convention, where he is taking questions from fans about his cop series T.J. Hooker. The actor gets annoyed when attendees keep asking him Star Trek questions. It's stated that there was also a recent Boston casting call for the sequel, with the production seeking a number of extras wearing superhero costumes.

Ted stars Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis are reprising their roles as John Bennett and his girlfriend Lori Collins, although Mila Kunis is said to have a smaller role in the sequel. We reported in February that Amanda Seyfried signed on to play the female lead, »

Gabriele Muccino Brings Life to Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Near Death’ at Voltage (Exclusive)

31 July 2014 2:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nicolas Chartier’s Voltage Films has brought director Gabriele Muccino aboard science-fiction thriller “Near Death.”

The deal reteams Muccino with Voltage following his “Fathers and Daughters,” starring Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried and Aaron Paul. Voltage plans to begin casting in October.

Sherryl Clark and Joe Riley will produce along side of Voltage’s Craig J. Flores and Chartier. Muccino will direct from a script by Carter Blanchard, who recently signed on to write a new draft of Fox’s “Independence Day” sequel.

Near Death” centers on a near-death survivor who starts predicting future events and acting in bizarre ways while his wife notices the world itself changing all around her in impossible ways. Fearing for her sanity, she investigates and uncovers a massive conspiracy that bridges space and time.

Muccino’s credits include a pair of Will Smith films — “The Pursuit of Happyness” and “Seven Pounds.”

William Shatner Might Be Bringing the Funny to 'Ted 2'

31 July 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Seth MacFarlane's follow-up to "Ted" is set to feature a familiar face in a small role, according to a new report.

The Boston Herald writes that Shatner will cameo in "Ted 2" as himself, where he'll be "a speaker at some kind of superhero fan convention to answer questions about his role in 'T.J. Hooker,'" the 1980s police series in which he starred alongside Heather Locklear. Why he'd be at a fan convention to talk about that show, and not his iconic "Star Trek" role of Captain Kirk, is beyond us, though perhaps that's where the comedy comes in, as the Herald notes that in the scene, Shatner "gets annoyed when fans keep asking him about 'Star Trek.'"

"Ted 2" is shooting in Boston, so it makes sense that the Herald would get the scoop on Shatner's casting, though there hasn't been any official word »

Will These Summer Flings Go the Distance?

25 July 2014 2:48 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Last year, we tracked the budding relationships of several celebrities that were coupling up and showing Pda around the world. Many of the flings fizzled, but other pairs - like Amanda Seyfried and Justin Long, Amy Poehler and Nick Kroll, and Jake Gyllenhaal and Alyssa Miller - are still going strong. Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy's Summer love resulted in an engagement, and Zoe Saldana tied the knot and is having a baby with her Spring fling, Marco Perego! Cut to 2014, and there are already plenty of new couples going public with their love. Khloé Kardashian has found a new boyfriend in rapper French Montana while Joseph Gordon-Levitt is currently getting cozy with Tasha McCauley, the cofounder and CEO of a robotics company based in Silicon Valley. There's also Heidi Klum, who has recently had plenty of Pda-filled moments with her latest love, 27-year-old Vito Schnabel, and just this week, »

22 July 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) has fired its awards season opening salvo, announcing a slew of world premieres for the September edition, which will close with Alan Rickman’s A Little Chaos.Scroll down for full list

Not to be outdone by the New York Film Festival, which has staked a claim to the world premieres of Gone Girl and Inherent Vice, and Venice, which will open with Birdman, artistic director Cameron Bailey and his team announced on Tuesday (22) close to 50 galas and special presentations.

Two factors are certain to ratchet up the sense of anticipation heading into September. Most of these titles are without Us distribution and that said, it remains to be seen which films will qualify for a coveted first-weekend slot.

Tiff top brass made it clear earlier this year that any title that sneaks into Telluride will be forced to screen after the first four days of the festival. Tiff runs from »

Tiff 2014: Complete 2014 Toronto Film Festival Lineup Announced

22 July 2014 7:32 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This morning the first wave of the 2014 Toronto Film Festival lineup was announced and so far it's an impressive list of films including films from Noah Baumbach, Mike Leigh, David Gordon Green, Jason Reitman, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg, Antoine Fuqua, Edward Zwick, Mikael Roskam, David Dobkin and many others. One surprising detail is there was no announcement of an opening film so along with everything below there is still at least one biggie on the way, and while they say it has nothing to do with their "premiere" mandate, I wouldn't be surprised if it might be Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman and they're waiting to see if it will be the North American premiere. Then again, could Birdman open both Toronto and Venicec But what else could it bec Maybe David Ayer's Furyc No chance for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar... or is therec Probably the films announced so far »

Remembering the Unforgettable Summer of 2004

17 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Believe it or not kids, there was once a time when Amanda Seyfried and Rachel McAdams were largely unknown actresses with second billing to Lindsay Lohan, who was considered the most promising star of her generation, when Tom Cruise could star in a movie without Scientology and Oprahgate entering the discussion and when an M. Night Shyamalan film was something to look forward to. If I said that 2004 was the most important summer in filmdom I’d be biased, because that was the first time I started to treat the critical viewing of films as a serious pursuit, so if I said that the films that came out that summer — Anchorman, Shrek 2, and Mean Girls -- were like nothing I’d ever seen before, that’s accurate in a way, as I was paying attention to films in a way I hadn’t before. Still, 2004 was an unforgettable summer (if you don’t count the forgettable »

Seth MacFarlane and Universal Pictures Sued Over 'Ted'

15 July 2014 9:40 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Seth MacFarlane is being sued for his blockbuster teddy bear comedy.

Seth MacFarlane and Universal Pictures are being sued over the wildly popular 2012 comedy Ted, after one production company claimed the idea was stolen from their web series.

Bengal Mangle Productions filed a lawsuit, alleging that that the crass teddy bear, voiced by MacFarlane himself, is strikingly similar to that of their animated bear Charlie, that can be seen in two web series, Charlie the Abusive Teddy and Acting School Academy, which aired from 2009-2010, Deadline reports.

The lawsuit claims the bears both have human friends and similar background stories, namely that they are “washed-up child stars/public personas."

Not only do they claim the bears are similar in their characteristics, but the suit also alleges that their social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook have similar postings.

Here are just a few of the tweets the lawsuit claims »

Mark Wahlberg Discusses Ted 2 Plot Details

29 June 2014 5:25 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Even though Seth MacFarlane's "A Million Ways to Die in the West" wasn't a hit, Universal Pictures would still like to make a sequel to MacFarlane's "Ted," which grossed a whopping $550 million on a budget of $50 million. While promoting "Transformers: Age of Extinction," "Ted" star Mark Wahlberg was asked if Ted and John Bennet (Wahlberg) learned any lessons from the first movie. "That wouldn't be any fun. No, no, no, they're crazier than ever," he replied. In the sequel Bennet separated from Lori (Mila Kunis) and finds a new love-interest, played by Amanda Seyfried. According to Wahlberg, the new woman will definitely be a "problem" for Ted, but he has bigger things to deal with. He added that there are talks of taking the story on the road and that Ted would be "an even worse influence." »
