Watch the trailer for the new retro gaming documentary ‘Man Vs. Snake’

27 September 2015 6:49 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Over the past eight years we’ve seen quite a number of remarkable documentaries about video game culture including Seth Gordon’s engrossing documentary about the quest for a Donkey Kong record and the feature-length Free to Play that follows three professional gamers from around the world as they compete for a million dollar prize in the first Dota 2 International Tournament. If you’re like me and you love video games and documentary filmmaking equally, you’re going to take an interest in Man Vs. Snake: The Long Twisted Tale of Nibbler. It tells the outrageous and inspirational true story of one man’s quest for the highest video game score ever recorded: In 1984, 16 year-old Timothy McVey walked into the legendary Twin Galaxies arcade in Ottumwa Iowa; and 44 ½ hours later he walked away with the highest score in video game history – on a single quarter. The film, directed by Tim Kinzy and Andrew Seklir, »

Rumour: Kelly Brook wanted for Baywatch movie alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron

18 August 2015 8:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now, this rumour comes from the British tabloid The Daily Star, so chances are it’s a total fabrication, but according to the paper British actress and model Kelly Brook is wanted for the upcoming Baywatch reboot in the role of C.J. Parker, played by Pamela Anderson in the TV series.

““Kelly is one of the shortlisters,” states the Star’s ‘source’. “It is no surprise. She has an almost identical body to a young Pam, looks sensational in a bikini and is a strong actress. Obviously, she would have to go blonde.”

Other names allegedly on the shortlist include Kate Upton and Charlotte McKinney.

The Baywatch reboot is being directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron set to feature in the cast.

Kelly Brook Baywatch movie Kelly Brook Baywatch movie rumours!

Kelly Brook, the British model turned actress who last appeared in the TV show One Big Happy, has apparently been shortlisted to star in the Baywatch movie opposite Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. The news is that the role in question is that of C.J. Parker, which was made famous by Pamela Anderson back in the 1990s.

Anderson has been pretty vocal about her thoughts on a Baywatch remake.

No one appreciates the remakes.

Now, take this with a pinch of salt as the source for the news is British tabloid The Daily Star, but we actually quite like the idea of Brook in the role.

The source had the following to say to the newspaper:

What Does Pamela Anderson Think of the 'Baywatch' Movie?

17 August 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Dwayne Johnson is excited about his new Baywatch movie. He promises it will be Rated R, and we've already heard that it will be inline with 21 Jump Street, sharing that TV-to-Movie adaptation's tone. It will also co-star a shirtless Zac Efron. Fans seem as excited as they can be, and it's generally been greeted with enthusiasm. But one original star doesn't like they idea. In fact, this former bathing suit beauty boldly states that it will suck.

Yes, even though she is rumored for a cameo, original cast member of the 1989 Baywatch, Pamela Anderson, doesn't think it's a good idea. She scoffs at Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron's attempts to take over the franchise. According to TMZ, when they asked her about the big screen reboot of her hit series, she had this to say.

"No one appreciates the remakes."

Read More: The Beloved Science Guy Returns to the Screen as the Subject of 'The Bill Nye Film' On the morning of August 10, 2015 the documentary (and former Indiewire Project of the Day), "The Bill Nye Film," became the most-funded documentary in Kickstarter's history. The previous title holder was "For The Love of Spock" a documentary about the legendary actor, Leonard Nimoy (which raised over $660,000). It appears that Bill Nye's bubbly and enthusiastic approach to teaching science paid off. Two long time fans and filmmakers, David Alvarado and Jason Sussberg, teamed up for this documentary, which will track Nye's recent work outside of the classroom. With the addition of the award-winning producer Seth Gordon to the team and the official confirmation that Nye is on board, the filmmakers were nearly ready to go. They needed one more push and the support of Kickstarter supporters gave them a shove. »

'Baywatch' Movie Is Rated R Says the Rock

11 August 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Baywatch movie is one of those projects that has been kicking around Hollywood forever, looking for just the right team to tackle it head-on. That seems to be happening, with Dwayne Johnson taking the lead for Paramount. Yesterday, it was announced that Zac Efron will be The Rock's co-star in the beachside action comedy. Shortly after word hit the Internet, Dwayne Johnson sent out a few select Tweets of his own, with one big promise to moviegoers.

Yes, The Rock insists that this version of Baywatch will be Rated R, something fans have been hoping for. Some have been hesitant to share their excitement about the project, but now it sounds like Paramount might have a pretty strong franchise contender on its hands. The tone and sense of humor has been compared to 21 Jump Street and its sequel 22 Jump Street. And it sounds like CHiPs, which is being directed, »

Dwayne Johnson Says 'Baywatch' With Zac Efron Will Be R-Rated

11 August 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We already know that Paramount's long-developing "Baywatch" movie wants to go down the route of Phil Lord and Chris Miller's fresh, funny and irreverent approach to "21 Jump Street." And it would seem they are truly committed to go down a similarly foul-mouthed, action-packed path. Yesterday, THR reported that Zac Efron was joining the movie and that the Seth Gordon directed movie would follow a serious lifeguard and a young hotshot who team up to save a beach from a mean, 'ol oil tycoon. Okay fine, this isn't the kind of movie that needs a dense plot. However, the interesting thing is what Dwayne Johnson tweeted, "Our movie will be big, fun and Rated R." So, yes, an R-rated "Baywatch" movie — who would've thought the David Hasselhoff vehicle would've spawned this? Of course, it remains to be seen if this material works (Gordon is behind "Horrible Bosses" which had a great premise, »

11 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Zac Efron may be getting ready for yet another shirtless performance: The actor is reportedly in talks to star in the "Baywatch" movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Efron is poised to join the flick, based on the popular '90s syndicated series about red swimsuit-clad lifeguards in California, as one of the leads. Dwayne Johnson, the other lead, is spearheading the adaptation, which will be directed by Seth Gordon ("Horrible Bosses").

THR notes that Efron's casting is the next key piece in the "Baywatch" movie puzzle, and production should start sometime in early 2016. That comes after years of stops and starts for the project, which has been kicking around Hollywood for what seems like forever.

The film, which is said to be striving for a tone similar to the recent hit "21 Jump Street" franchise, will focus on "a by-the-book and very serious lifeguard (Johnson) who is forced to team »

Things are heating up on Paramount’s high-profile Baywatch movie – and we aren’t just referring to the recent casting of Zac Efron. Taking to Twitter to welcome his new co-star, Dwayne Johnson revealed that the studio’s modernized take on the famed cadre of lifeguards will be rated R.

Zac Efron to don the red shorts for Dwayne Johnson’s Baywatch movie

Damien Shannon and Mark Swift (Friday the 13th) have written the last version of the script.

Baywatch, created by Michael Berk, Douglas Schwartz, Gregory J. Bonann, ran between 1989-2001, with a cast that included David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson amongst others. The film version is set for release in 2017.

Dwayne Johnson And Zac Efron Hit The Sand For Baywatch

11 August 2015 3:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

I’m not one to endorse rebooting kitsch TV properties as movies, but after the success of 21 Jump Street, I must concede that when the talent’s in place, anything’s possible. Still, my generosity only stretches so far, and Baywatch, one of the 90s hollowest TV hits, is pushing the limit.

Paramount don’t seem too care though, as they’re readying Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson (who’ll need some Xxl trunks) to lead their mooted reboot.


Baywatch is mostly famed for its stars and aesthetic. Following a group of lifeguards, the show made celebrities of David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra, whilst cementing the “slo-mo beach run” as an actual shot-type. TV doesn’t get much cheesier, so you’ve got to suspect this new version will have its tongue firmly planted in cheek. The odd-couple pairing of Johnson and Efron feels very Jump Street, »

Zac Efron will star in the Baywatch movie

Prepare to see some hot bods on the beach as another muscled heart-throb has joined the cast of the planned Baywatch movie. Joining Dwayne Johnson will be Bad Neighbours star Zac Efron who will don the famous red shorts in the proposed R-rated comedy which is being directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses).

The Hollywood Reporter says that the new version of the hit 1990s TV show ‘centers on a by-the-book and very serious lifeguard (Johnson) who is forced to team up with a young rule-flouting hothead (Efron) in order to save their beach from environmental destruction at the hands of an oil tycoon.’

It will be raunchy, and it will be funny.

Shooting kicks off on the movie in February 2016, with a likely 2017 release. Baywatch will be preceeded by another Bad Neighbours movie in which Efron will return with Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne, »

Zac Efron Joins Baywatch

After years spent running around the development beach, it appears that Baywatch might finally be getting its moment in the movie sun. Dwayne Johnson is locked in to star in the film version and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Zac Efron is in negotiations to join him in swimsuit city. Seth Gordon is aboard to call the shots on what has long been described as a comedic take on the sun-drenched, melodramatic series that captivated audiences in the 1900s with its lissom cast, Ott water events and The Hoff’s chest hair keeping things under control. And now we know some of the basics of the plot for the film, which was most recently rewritten by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift: Johnson will be the by-the-book veteran lifeguard who must team up with a rule-breaking younger man (Efron) to save their beach from an environmental disaster that might result »
