In a changing of the self-titled comedy guard, TV Land announced on Tuesday (July 29) that it has given a series order to "The Gaffigan Show," while also confirming that "Kirstie" has been cancelled after only one season. As you might guess, "The Gaffigan Show" comes from best-selling author and Hot Pockets enthusiast Jim Gaffigan. The single-camera comedy has been ordered for 10 episodes and will shoot in New York, premiering in 2015. Based on Gaffigan's experiences balancing fatherhood, stand-up comedy and "an insatiable appetite," "The Gaffigan Show" has played an interesting version of network hopscotch. The project, created by Gaffigan and Peter Tolan, was developed and shot for CBS in 2013 and then redeveloped and shot this spring. It will now air on TV Land, with Comedy Central securing rights to air episodes one week after their premiere. “I am thrilled that TV Land is giving us this opportunity to do this show that Peter, »

The show, which has a 10-episode order for a 2015 premiere, revolves around Gaffigan’s life as a standup comic and father who struggles with an insatiable appetite. The project was developed for CBS this past pilot season.
Adam Goldberg, Michael Ian Black and Ashley Williams also star. Episodes of the show will air on sibling Viacom cabler Comedy Central, where Gaffigan is known for his many standup specials, within a week of debut on TV Land.

One of our favorite documentaries of all time here at Fsr, The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters debuted back in January 2007 at the Slamdance Film Festival. Before it even released in theaters that August it had become an enormous cult sensation, particularly with people who aren’t normally into nonfiction films. Also before it even opened, director Seth Gordon was recruited by New Line (who also distributed the doc) to remake the feature, presumably to share the goofy story of rival arcade game champions with a much broader audience that wouldn’t ever, ever watch a doc, no matter how entertaining. It’s totally unnecessary, and those doc-despisers don’t deserve this story if that’s how they’re gonna be, but that’s Hollywood for you. As with most plans to redo docs as dramatic or “narrative” films, though, this one has been taking its sweet time — and doesn’t seem like it’ll »

Although at the moment the project only has a director attached - Horrible Bosses’ Seth Gordon – Sony has selected a release date of June 10th, 2016 for their blockbuster cinematic adaptation of the Uncharted line of video games.
The decision comes in the wake of a delay for The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Pretty much everything about that franchise has fallen flat on its face, so maybe it’s a wise move on the part of Sony to test out something new as a summer tentpole release.
Uncharted is already arguably the closest video games have ever come to mimicking a cinematic movie-like experience, so adapting it to the big screen should feel natural and actually yield success; a trait not found in most film adaptations of video games.
If you are inexperienced with the line of video games, below is a synopsis of the first game in the franchise, which should »

Hollywood really went release date crazy this week. Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 finally found a bay from which to dock. Marvel went ahead and announced a new 2018 movie. And Sony went ahead and opted to debut The Sinister Six in November 2016, while pushing The Amazing Spider-Man 3 out of its intended June 10th, 2016 slot. But Sony wasted no time in reclaiming that real estate with another release. Uncharted, based on the popular adventure video game, will debut on June 10th, 2016. Directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), the plot follows Nate Drake, a wisecracking Indiana Jones analog who hunts buried treasures and solves ancient mysteries. Reportedly, Mark Wahlberg's been in talks to take over the role, which is the best, since Wahlberg's confused face is perfect when he's trying to think onscreen. Uncharted is premiering in a pretty wide-open June that year. Right now, it's sandwiched between two animated films, »
We’ve seen superheroes band together as a powerhouse group in Marvel’s The Avengers and now Sony is forming their own Marvel-based team of comic book characters, but with a villainous slant. Sinister Six, a movie featuring a host of antagonists from The Amazing Spider-Man universe, has been slated for a 2016 release, and Sony has also pushed back the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 by two years.
THR reports that Sinister Six is now officially set for a November 11th, 2016 release. With The Amazing Spider-Man spinoff securing a calendar spot, Sony swapped the release date of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 from June 10th, 2016 to a date in 2018, likely in June. The delay of the third Amazing Spider-Man film will in turn postpone the original May 4th, 2018 debut date for The Amazing Spider-Man 4, but the new official release date for that entry has yet to be announced.

Today is the day of preparation for the 2014 International Comic-Con in San Diego, where many a studio will be dropping announcements and/or trailers for upcoming tentpoles. Hence, a couple of major Hollywood studios are using today to reveal official release dates for franchise installments that won’t arrive until two to three years now – and thus, won’t be presented at the 2014 ‘Con.
That includes Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean 5 (currently going by the semi-official subtitle Dead Men Tell No Tales), as well as Sony’s Sinister Six and Amazing Spider-Man 3, and the video game adaptation, Uncharted. It was just a week ago that Uncharted director Seth Gordon said he expects to begin shooting the international treasure-hunting adventure “very early” in ...

After Sony Pictures announced earlier today that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was being pushed to 2018, the studio gave Uncharted the superhero sequel's old release date on June 10, 2016. Uncharted currently has the date to itself, falling between another Sony project, the animated comedy Sausage Party on June 3 and Disney-Pixar's Finding Dory on June 17.
Here's what Sony Pictures President Doug Belgrad had to say about Uncharted's new release date.
"June 10 is a great date for Uncharted. It's just the right place for this exciting action-adventure film."
Director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief) revealed last week that production on Uncharted will begin in early 2015. This action-adventure is based on the successful video game series that follows the adventures of treasure hunter Nathan Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake, who goes on a quest to find the lost city of El Dorado. Mark Wahlberg was once attached to play Drake, but he is no longer involved. »
The future timeline of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise and the planned spin-offs has been uncertain since the second film in the franchise didn't do quite as well as Sony Pictures hoped. Originally, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was dated for June 10th, 2016, and the studio was figuring when they wanted to throw the spin-offs into theaters after that. But now Sony has decided to mix things up by setting The Sinister Six for release on November 11th, 2016 and then following it up with the third film in the primary franchise (likely summer) in 2018. But the vacated summer 2016 date won't be empty. Read on! Sony has decided to fill the June 10th, 2016 with their video game adventure adaptation of Uncharted, directed by King of Kong and Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon and written by David Guggenheim (Safe House). Of course, the studio is still trying to figure out who will play the main character of Nathan Drake. »

The torrent of news out of the "Spider-Man" camp continues to flow, now in the form of updated release dates. Perhaps not surprisingly, fans of the "Amazing Spider-Man" franchise are going to have to wait a little bit longer than they had expected to see the web-slinger back on the big screen. Columbia Pictures has announced, as reported by Deadline, that rather than "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" swinging onto the big screen on June 10, 2016, it is being pushed back to 2018. Additionally, it was announced that the Drew Goddard helmed "Sinister Six" film will be in theaters on November 11, 2016. Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group President Doug Belgrad is quoted as saying, "With 'Sinister Six' in the hands of writer-director Drew Goddard, we feel extremely confident placing the film on a prime date in 2016." That film will focus on a set of "Spider-Man" villains, and had some of its groundwork laid in »

We recently brought you news that Sinister Six had been dated for November 11th, 2016, and that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 had been pushed back to the summer of 2018, and now we know what’s taking the latter film’s place on Sony’s schedule. Today, in the midst of Comic-Con fervor, it was revealed that the Uncharted adaptation would be taking The Amazing Spider-Man 3‘s spot on June 10th, 2016.
Said Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group president Doug Belgrad:
“June 10 is a great date for Uncharted. It’s just the right place for this exciting action-adventure film.”

Originally set to hit theaters on June 10, 2016, Sony has now decided to delay The Amazing Spider-Man 3 two years to 2018, the year The Amazing Spider-Man 4 was previously expected to hit theaters. However, they aren't giving up on the idea of building a world around the web-slinger despite the lackluster returns from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which had been expected to gross nearly $1 billion worldwide this summer, but has so far only amassed $706 million. Instead of a new Spider-Man film in 2016, the studio is moving forward with The Sinister Six with writer/director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), releasing on November 11, 2016. The film features an all-star lineup of Spider-Man villains, all of which were teased in the Spider-Man 2's end credits including Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Rhino, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio. No word on which one of those villains may show up, but it seems »

Sony’s adaptation of their best-selling video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune has been in the works for years. David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) was attached several years ago, and after he left the project, Neil Burger (Divergent) stepped in, but he eventually dropped out as well. Earlier this year, director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) signed on to direct, and last week he said he hopes to begin filming in early 2015. Now, THR’s Borys Kit has tweeted that the Uncharted release date will be June 10, 2016. For those unfamiliar with the franchise, it follow treasure hunter Nathan Drake, who is the descendant of famous explorer Sir Francis Drake. The games carry a blockbuster attitude as they take the player around the wisecracking, Indiana Jones-inspired protagonist around the globe to find fabled cities like El Dorado and Shangri-La. The Uncharted games are pretty much interactive movies if movies featured a »

Slow down, Spider-Man. Take a load off. You’ve been going nonstop since 2002.
After bringing home more than $700 million around the globe in his last superhero adventure, Andrew Garfield and the Amazing Spider-Man franchise aren’t being rushed back into the fray. A third film was originally slated for June 10, 2016, but Sony announced today that Spidey wouldn’t swing back our way—at least in his own film—until 2018.
The twist is that we still might get a taste of Spidey in two years, because Sinister Six is now officially on the calendar for Nov. 11, 2016. That franchise expansion, to be »

Looking to broaden its Spider-Man franchise, Sony has dated spin-off “Sinister Six” for Nov. 11, 2016 as the next tentpole in its key property — while moving back “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ two years to 2018.
After modest box office results for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” the studio thinks “Sinister Six” will expand the Spider-Man universe by bringing in villains, making Sony a stronger competitor against the likes of Disney/Marvel’s “Avengers” and WB’s Justice League superheroes in the coming years.
The studio has also slated “Uncharted” for June 10, 2016 — which had previously been the release schedule previously held by “The Amazing Spider-Man 3.”
Sony made the announcements Wednesday on the opening day of Comic-Con. The studio first revealed the “Sinister Six” and “Venom” spinoff projects in December, »
