29 July 2015 1:06 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Amazon Studios has set the release dates for two of its original series’ pilots. The debut episodes of Sneaky Pete and Casanova will drop on the Instant Video streaming platform on August 7, 2015.

On that date, both the Sneaky Pete and Casanova pilots will be available to all Amazon Prime Instant Video subscribers in the U.S., UK, and Germany. Soon afterwards, the pilots will be joined by others in Amazon’s recent round of its pilot program. Prime users will then be able to vote on their favorite pilots, which Amazon will greenlight as full series orders.

Sneaky Pete, which Amazon was reportedly courting back in June 2015, comes from executive producers Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and David Shore (House M.D.). The Amazon original series’ story centers around a released-from-prison conman, played by Giovanni Ribisi, who takes his old cellmate Pete’s identity and gets sucked into his family’s bail bond business. »

Seth Gordon Lands Gig to Direct 'Baywatch' Starring Dwayne Johnson

24 July 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Another day, another remake. This time Paramount is finally putting together an update "big-screen take" on the 90s TV show that originally starred David Hasselhoff & Pamela Anderson. THR reports Paramount has set director Seth Gordon, of Identity Thief, Horrible Bosses, Four Christmases and The King of Kong, to take on the new Baywatch which is also set to star Dwayne Johnson. Johnson has been attached since late last year, and the project has been gestating for at least a decade. We've been hearing about some rumblings and rumors of a Baywatch movie forever, but now it sounds like they're pushing forward with it (another name brand project, of course) with Gordon in negotiations to take the job directing. I'm intrigued. Paramount's new take on a Baywatch movie has been in the works for years. The script has undergone many revisions and the latest iteration is by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. »

Peyton will direct the video game adaptation Rampage, which Johnson describes on his Instagram feed saying: Rampage is our childhood arcade classic where the storyline revolves around a gigantic King Kong, gigantic Godzilla and a gigantic Werewolf wreaking havoc and destruction across North America. We had to find the one director who I knew would bring that epic vision to life. Our San Andreas director and handsome son of a bitch Brad Peyton. We're fired up for this big one.

Seth Gordon To Helm "Baywatch" Movie

24 July 2015 7:43 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Seth Gordon ("Horrible Bosses," "King of Kong") is negotiations to direct the "Baywatch" movie for :aramount Pictures.

A big screen take on the iconic 1990s television series about California lifeguards, Dwayne Johnson is attached to star in the project which has been in the works for over a decade as the studio has tried to find the right tone for it.

Damian Shannon and Mark Swift penned the most recent draft which is said to be akin to the "21 Jump Street" franchise in terms of being an action comedy that fondly lampoons its source material.

Johnson will play a by-the-book and very serious lifeguard who is forced to team up with a young rule-flouting hothead in order to save their beach from environmental destruction at the hands of an oil tycoon.

Filming is slated to begin early next year and Johnson will produce. It's hoped original cast members like David Hasselhoff, »

Horrible Bosses helmer to direct ‘Baywatch’ film

24 July 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Baywatch movie: Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon is to direct the big screen version of Baywatch. The Baywatch movie now has a director

Seth Gordon, who directed the first Horrible Bosses movie, is being lined up to helm the big-screen version of the hit series, Baywatch.

Gordon is responsible for the superb documentary The King Of Kong, as well as the recent Jason Bateman/ Melissa McCarthy comedy Identity Thief, so we’re expecting a tongue-in-cheek version of David Hasselhoff‘s hit 1990s TV show when it arrives in cinemas.

The film has Dwayne Johnson on board in the lead, but it has been nine months since the actor took to social media to tell us all about it. Remember what he said?

“This is my beach bitch!”

“Rumors are true… we’re making #Baywatch the movie. Edgy, raunchy and hopefully, funny as all hell. Cue slo mo running on the beach… »

Dwayne Johnson's 'Rampage' And 'Baywatch' Get Directors

24 July 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It's Dwayne Johnson's world, and we're just living it. He can bring in the box office bucks, move from action to comedy with ease, and make it all look pretty damn charming. It's no wonder Hollywood is gifting him with big screen properties to lead, and two of them have landed directors. Deadline reports that video game adaptation "Rampage" will reteam The Rock with his "San Andreas" and "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" director Brad Peyton. Ryan Engle ("Non-Stop") is penning the script for this one about monsters that wreak havoc on American landmarks. Plot specifics are being kept under wraps, but they will probably involve Johnson punching enormous reptiles or otherwise. Meanwhile, THR says that Seth Gordon will get behind the camera of the forever developing "Baywatch" movie. After numerous hands have tried to make it work over the past decade, the concept will be to go down »

The Rock's Baywatch Movie Is Close To Being A Real Thing That Exists

23 July 2015 7:11 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's been a while since we last heard an update about the proposed Baywatch movie, with Dwayne Johnson signing on to star all the way back in October of last year. Well, today the film took a huge step forward, and looks like it will actually become a reality, as new reports say that Seth Gordon is now in talks to direct. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news, noting that the filmmaker hasn't been behind the helm of a feature since 2013's Identity Thief. Gordon will be working from a script that has been written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Freddy vs Jason, 2009's Friday The 13th), though it's noted in the trade that they are hardly the first writers to take a crack at Baywatch.

Baywatch Movie Snags Horrible Bosses’ Seth Gordon

23 July 2015 6:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paramount has been struggling to turn the ’90s TV series Baywatch into a movie since 2004, and the project has finally found solid ground tonight with word that Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon is in negotiations to helm.

Dwayne Johnson is attached to topline the pic, which will update the beloved show for modern times. David Hasselhoff, Pam Anderson, Yasmin Bleeth, Carmen Electra and David Chokach were among those who starred in the slo-mo-happy series, which always had a light and silly vibe.

The movie take is said to find Johnson playing a by-the-book lifeguard who is forced to team up with a young, carefree daredevil in order to save their beach from an oil tycoon primed to destroy the environment.

Nailing the tone for a Baywatch movie has proven exceptionally difficult for Paramount, which has sent over a dozen writers packing over the years. Now, though, the studio and producer »

Seth Gordon in Talks to Rescue The Rock’s ‘Baywatch’ Movie at Paramount

23 July 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Seth Gordon hasn’t directed a good movie since “The King of Kong” but his films do make money, which may explain why he’s in negotiations to direct the long-gestating “Baywatch” movie at Paramount. After making a name for himself with the gamer documentary “The King of Kong” (its poster hangs in my apartment), Gordon has directed “Four Christmases,” “Horrible Bosses” and Identify Thief,” all of which are less than 70% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Gordon recently left Sony’s “Uncharted,” which may have proved to be a blessing in disguise for that project. Gordon has actually done his best work on TV. »

'Baywatch' Movie Teams the Rock with 'Horrible Bosses' Director

23 July 2015 5:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief director Seth Gordon has signed on to direct Paramount's movie adaptation of the hit TV series Baywatch, which has Dwayne Johnson set to star. The actor has been attached to the project since October, when, ironically, Horrible Bosses 2 filmmakers Sean Anders and John Morris were set to direct. It is unclear at this point when production may begin, but the studio has been trying to get this project off the ground for many years.

The Baywatch movie has been in the works since July 2009, when Jeremy Garelick signed on to write and direct. A slew of writers have worked on the project between now and then, including Brian Gatewood & Alessandro Tanaka, Peter Tolan and Justin Malen. The writing team of Damian Shannon and Mark Swift wrote the most recent draft of the screenplay, which the studio is moving forward with.

Seth Gordon to Direct Dwayne Johnson in Paramount’s ‘Baywatch’ Movie

23 July 2015 5:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Seth Gordon is in negotiations to direct Dwayne Johnson in Paramount’s bigscreen adaptation of the TV series “Baywatch.”

Johnson is attached to star and will produce along with his partner Dany Garcia through their Seven Bucks Productions banner along with Montecito Pictures producing along with Beau Flynn.

Michael Berk, Douglas Schwartz, Greg Bonnan will exec produce.

While plot details are currently vague, sources close to the project have said the studio wants to go the comedic route for the project.

Paramount has been trying to get the right ingredients in place in order to move forward with the film, and Gordon is the sort of director the studio has been looking to over the years. Gordon’s hit vulgar comedies like “Horrible Bosses” and “Identity Theft” have made him a popular director at the studios amid moviegoers’ craving for R-rated comedies. Paramount would hope for similar results.

Seth Gordon In Negotiations To Direct Baywatch

23 July 2015 3:55 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

 Baywatch is one of those projects that somehow just keeps dangling out of reach of the studio, in this case, Paramount. But the company seems determined to bring the lifeguard story to our screens, and now has Seth Gordon close to a deal to direct Dwayne Johnson in the film. The show, which became famous for its sun-kissed beaches, attractive lifeguards and The Hoff overseeing it all, has been in the works as a movie for a while, with Paramount looking to take it in an even more overtly comedic direction. The likes of Peter Tolan, Robert Ben Garant (who was also rumoured as a director) and, most recently, Justin Malen, have taken cracks at the script, while Horrible Bosses 2 directors Sean Anders were attached until recently.It appears Paramount isn’t straying too far from the Bosses team – Gordon directed the first film back in 2011 and has worked »

It looks like Sony has suffered another setback with its plan to bring video game franchise Uncharted to the big screen, with The Wrap reporting that Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) has now vacated the director’s chair owing to a dispute with studio boss Tom Rothman over the creative direction of the project.

Uncharted has passed through the hands of several filmmakers including David O. Russell (The Fighter) and Neil Burger (Divergent), while Mark Wahlberg have been mentioned as potential candidates for the lead role of treasure hunter Nathan Drake. The most recent draft of the script has been Oscar-winner Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty).

Sony’s Uncharted Movie Loses Director – Again

25 June 2015 9:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Nathan Drake may be enjoying a fruitful boon in the video game medium, with Naughty Dog prepping to bring back the grizzled treasure hunter early next year for A Thief’s End, but his journey to the silver screen for an Uncharted movie has been anything but smooth sailing. And now, Heroic Hollywood brings word that Horrible Bosses‘ Seth Gordon is the latest director to leave the troubled project.

According to sources close with the stalled production, Gordon’s exit is consequence of Sony steering the adaptation in a whole new direction. It’s a change of heart purportedly born of budgetary constraints, with newly-appointed Head of Sony Pictures Tom Rothman supposedly claiming that the allotted budget for the finalized Uncharted movie will be more in line with Resident Evil than Indiana Jones, despite many believing that the company would nurture Nathan Drake into a bona fide franchise lead.
