Cameron Crowe’s Untitled Romantic Comedy Pushed Back To Next May

22 July 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sadly, in a news item we all knew was coming, it has been officially announced that Sony is pushing Cameron Crowe’s untitled Bradley Cooper/Emma Stone romantic comedy from its December 25th release slot to May 29th, 2015. The fact that the project didn’t even have a title (and still doesn’t) didn’t bode well for its chances of sticking to the Christmas release, and the ridiculously crowded state of the cinema this year (currently, we’ve got The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Annie, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, Big Eyes, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, Into the Woods, Paddington, Selma and Unbroken all opening in the last two weeks of December) also hinted at the possibility of a move.

The Hawaii-set comedy, which Crowe both penned and helmed, stars Rachel McAdams and Bill Murray in addition to Cooper and Stone. The plot »

Sony Pictures Entertainment have announced that iconic video game characters Pac-man, Donkey Kong, Centipede, Galaga, Frogger, Q*bert, and Space Invaders are all set to feature in Chris Columbus' new action comedy "Pixels" opening next May. The likes of Atari, Konami, Bandai Namco, Nintendo, Taito and Warner Brothers are teaming with the makers on the film.

Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, and Brian Cox star in the story of a handful of washed up video game champions called into help when aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, so they've started attacking Earth using the games as models for their various assaults.

Cameron Crowe’s latest, starring Bradley Cooper, delayed until 2015

21 July 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Wrap has reported that the currently untitled return of director Cameron Crowe (Vanilla Sky, Almost Famous) has been pushed back from it’s original Christmas Day release until the middle of next spring. And while it may seem like a downer, it sounds like Sony, who are distributing the movie, have made the right choice considering the competition it faced in the Us over Christmas.

In the Us, the film was originally set to go head-head-to-head with a glut of wide, and potential hit, films. Disney’s big film for the festive season, an adaptation of musical Into the Woods, starring Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt and Chris Pine was arguably the biggest obstacle.

Other obsticles included Angelina Jolie-directed Unbroken, cult-comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and  Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, which begins it’s limited release on the same day, but will still draw in the crowds. »

Cameron Crowe's Romantic Comedy Starring Bradley Cooper Moves to Summer 2015

21 July 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures has moved its Untitled Cameron Crowe Project from December 25, 2014 to May 29, 2015. Here's what Sony Pictures chairman Jeff Blake had to say about the release date shift, commenting that director Cameron Crowe's movie is tailor-made for a summer release.

"Once we saw the film, we knew that it would make a perfect summer release. The movie is Cameron at his best."

The Untitled Cameron Crowe Project will now go up against Focus Features' Insidious Chapter 3 and Paramount's Monster Trucks on May 29, which is the weekend after the Memorial Day holiday. If it would have stayed in its Christmas Day slot, it would have gone up against Paramount's comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2, the Disney musical Into the Woods, The Weinstein Company's animated adaptation Paddington and the Universal true-story drama Unbroken.

Cameron Crowe’s Untitled Emma Stone/Bradley Cooper Comedy Pushed to May 29, 2015

21 July 2014 2:37 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you were looking forward to catching the next Cameron Crowe film this Christmas, we’ve got some bad news.  Sony Pictures has opted to push Crowe’s untitled new romantic comedy from its initial December 25th release date to May 29, 2015.  Sony recently saw a new cut and decided the pic was more of a summer play rather than a holiday/awards-type film.  Though I’m disappointed I’ll have to wait an extra five months to see the pic, hopefully it’s found a more fitting date.  On its new opening weekend, the film will square off against the horror sequel Insidous Chapter 3 and the animated adventure/family pic Monster Trucks. Crowe’s untitled romantic comedy stars Bradley Cooper as a defense contractor overseeing a weapons satellite launch from Hawaii who teams up with (and falls for) an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone) to scuttle the launch.  The promising ensemble also includes Bill Murray, »

Cameron Crowe's Next Slated Not for Fall, but Summer 2015

Now that Columbia Pictures and Regency Enterprises have screened writer-director Cameron Crowe's still-untitled return to original filmmaking, they're scheduling it for May 29, 2015. That suggests that they did not consider the comedy --which stars Bradley Cooper as a military contractor who reconnects with former love Rachel McAdams when he returns to the Us Space program in Hawaii-- to be fall awards material.  “Once we saw the film, we knew that it would make a perfect summer release," says Jeff Blake, Chairman, Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony Pictures. "The movie is Cameron at his best.” Emma Stone plays Cooper's other love interest in the film, while Bill Murray plays an enigmatic billionaire who is launching a complex satellite system. Also starring are John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and Alec Baldwin. The film is produced by Crowe and Scott Rudin.  Exec producers are Ilona Herzberg, Eli Bush, »

Now the film has been pushed back further, earning a May 29, 2015 slot in the States.The film, which Crowe originally developed as Deep Tiki, finds Bradley Cooper as a military contractor working on a satellite project in Hawaii who reconnects with an old flame (Rachel McAdams).

Romance and Hawaiian mysticism flare, while the cast also boasts Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride and Alec Baldwin.Crowe and editor Joe Hutshing have been busy getting the film into shape and it would seem the Sony brass has decided it should move from the competitive December awards slot and into a spring/summer release. »

Jon Hamm to Join Richard Linklater's Incredible Mr. Limpet Remake

12 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Mad Men star Jon Hamm is looking to join the remake of the 1964 Don Knotts film, The Incredible Mr. Limpet. Other actors in talks to come on board include Kevin Hart, Danny McBride, Sarah Silverman, Josh Gad, and comedy duo Key & Peele. If cast they will join Zach Galifianakis.

The movie is being directed by Richard Linklater (Boyhood, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, After Midnight) from a script based on the novel by Theodore Pratt. Warner Bros. has been trying to get this movie made for the last 20 years, and it looks like it's finally coming together. 

The original story followed "an everyman who is transformed into a fish and goes on to fight Nazis." In this new version, Galifianakis is expected to play Larry Limpet, "a bearded beach bum trying to save the fish population. When he's turned into a fish, Limpet sets out on an adventure to save his town and the sea world, »

Josh Charles on his Emmy nomination -- and the 'Good Wife' Best Drama snub

Josh Charles received his second Best Supporting Actor nomination this morning for playing (the late) Will Gardner on CBS’s The Good Wife. Sick with a cold and cough, he went back to bed after getting up early to let out his dog, Zeus—and learned of his nod when he rolled over and saw a congratulatory email on his iPhone. “Nothing super fancy or exciting, sorry,” he jokes to EW. “I’m really excited about it even if my voice doesn’t sound normal.”

Jon Hamm circling Richard Linklater’s The Incredible Mr. Limpet remake

10 July 2014 5:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to The Wrap, Mad Men star Jon Hamm is circling Boyhood director Richard Linklater’s next film, a remake of 1964′s The Incredible Mr. Limpet. The original film followed a man named Henry Limpet, who turns into a talking fish and helps the United States Navy locate and destroy Nazi submarines.

I’m not kidding about that description. Go ahead and read it again. I’ll wait.

Linklater’s remake will utilize a mixture of CGI and live-action, and give the film a more contemporary update.

Zack Galifianakis (The Hangover trilogy) is set to star as Larry Limpet, a bearded beach bum trying to save the fish population. When he finds himself turned into a fish, he sets out to save his town and the sea world, while facing off against Hamm’s character, a shrewd businessman who mines the ocean floor.

Will Hamm And Silverman Join Galifianakis As ‘The Incredible Mr Limpet’?

10 July 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It was once mounted as a vehicle for Jim Carrey, but now the story of The Incredible Mr Limpet is headed for the big screen via Warner Bros, with The Hangover’s Zach Galifianakis and writer/director Richard Linklater. Galifianakis is enough bang for anybody’s buck, but Linklater is upping his game with a smorgasbord-style wishlist of talent in support. Jon Hamm could be trying to prove there’s life after Don Draper in the role of the film’s villain, an… er… “unscrupulous businessman”. Meanwhile Sarah Silverman, who’s been adding to her CV of shock with Masters Of Sex, is lined up for an as yet unspecified part.

Based on the 1964 movie and the novel by Theodore Pratt, the production will be part live action, part animation. Sounding like a cross between Local Hero and Finding Nemo, the plot follows the title character, whose attempts to save »

Watch: 10 Minute Interview With Richard Linklater On 'Boyhood' Plus Updates On 'Limpet' & 'Larry's Kidney'

9 July 2014 9:38 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"That thing has been in development for over three years. Interesting how the week I have a film coming out someone decides it's a good idea to promote this. Not sure what they hope to gain," "Boyhood" director Richard Linklater told Indiewire about the brewing remake of "The Incredible Mr. Limpet," one that he also recently said "wasn't happening." So take this next bit of info with a grain or three of salt. According to The Wrap, Jon Hamm, Danny McBride, Sarah Silverman, Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele are all in talks for roles for 'Limpet,' with Zach Galifianakis still attached to star. The trade says that if everything goes according to plan production might start this fall, but it would seem that someone needs to tell Linklater this is happening first. Meanwhile, another project that looks to have fallen by the wayside is "Larry's Kidney. »

Linklater's 'Mr. Limpet' Still Has Lifec Sounds Unlikely...

9 July 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

My just posted interview with Richard Linklater took place on May 31 and when I asked him about his long-gestating remake of the live-action/animation hybrid The Incredible Mr. Limpet starring Zach Galifianakis all he said was essentially at a loss for words saying, "Yeah, I don't think that's happening... You know, studios, eh, they're so full of sh*t, you know, it's just, nothing, nothing..." Now, a couple days after that interview posted The Wrap has a story suggesting Jon Hamm is circling a live-action role opposite Galafianakis, who has long been attached to play Larry Limpet, a bearded beach bum trying to save the fish population. When he's turned into a fish, Limpet sets out on an adventure to save his town and the sea world, learning valuable lessons along the way. Did something happen in the month since I spoke with Linklater that turned this project aroundc After all, »
