'Fantastic Four' Star Michael B. Jordan to Lead 'Men Who Kill'

17 April 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox has acquired the pitch Men Who Kill, with Michael B. Jordan attached to star.

The project will be written by T.J. Fixman, which is described as a CIA thriller, although no specific plot details were given. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schecter are attached to produce, with the studio paying over six figures for the pitch. No director is attached at this time.

The deal strengthens Michael B. Jordan's relationship with 20th Century Fox, after starring in the low-budget hit Chronicle and signing on to play Johnny Storm in The Fantastic Four reboot for the studio. He is also attached to star in Creed, a spin-off of the Rocky franchise that reunites him with Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler. He most recently starred in That Awkward Moment, and he also has a role in the upcoming crime thriller Triple Nine.

T.J. Fixman sold his script One Night on the Hudson to Universal, »

Fox Acquires Greg Berlanti, Michael B. Jordan Pitch ‘Men Who Kill’

17 April 2014 11:04 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twentieth Century Fox has acquired the pitch “Men Who Kill” with Michael B. Jordan attached to star.

Tj Fixman would write the script with Greg Berlanti producing along with Sarah Schecter.

The film is described as a CIA thriller with remaining plot details being kept under wraps.

Fox paid in the six-figure range for the pitch and the sale makes sense given Fox’s growing relationship with rising star Jordan, who is set to play Johnny Storm in Fox’s “Fantastic Four.”

Jordan, who is repped by Wme and the Schiff Co., was most recently seen in Focus Features’ “That Awkward Moment.” Besides “Fantastic Four,” he has a handful of projects in development including a “Rocky” spinoff called “Creed.”

Fixman recently sold “One Night On The Hudson” to Universal with Mary Parent producing, Seth Gordon directing and Jason Sudekis and Charlie Day starring, “The Lost” for New Line and 21 Laps, »

Fox Buys Pitch For Its ‘Chronicle’ And ‘Fantastic Four’ Star Michael B. Jordan

17 April 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Fox has closed a deal for Men Who Kill, a pitch by T.J. Fixman that will be developed as a star vehicle for fast-rising Michael B. Jordan. The tone of the film is an international Bad Boys and it gives the studio another project with Jordan, who comes off his breakout role in Fruitvale Station and heads into the Fantastic Four reboot after previously starring in the Fox sleeper Chronicle. After starring as a teen in the iconic TV series The Wire and Friday Night Lights, Jordan is making the transition to adulthood among a handful of young actors vying to be in the next generation of bankable leading men. This is the first action thriller vehicle being developed specifically for Jordan, who is separately attached to play Apollo Creed’s grandson in a new version of Rocky that will re-team him with Fruitvale Station writer-director Ryan Coogler.

'Community' Movie Eyes 'Fast & Furious' Director Justin Lin

26 March 2014 3:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

"Six seasons and a movie" has been Community fans' rallying cry ever since Abed (Danny Pudi) uttered that now-famous line in a Season 2 episode, while referencing NBC's short-lived series The Cape. But will the movie actually happen? As NBC executives currently mull the fate of Community's sixth and final season, TV Guide reports that Justin Lin (Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6) is being eyed to direct the feature.

Nothing is set in stone at this time, but the directorial choice would make sense, since Justin Lin directed three Season 1 episodes, the popular "paintball" episode "Modern Warfare", "Interpretive Dance" and "Introduction to Statistics".

Even if Justin Lin isn't available, the show has used several other feature directors throughout its five-season run, such as Captain America: The Winter Soldier's Anthony Russo and Joe Russo. The brothers had previously served as executive producers on the series, with the latter directing last »

Hit Video Game The Last of Us Coming to the Big Screen from Producer Sam Raimi

6 March 2014 1:11 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Critically acclaimed PlayStation 3 video game The Last of Us is getting the big screen treatment, with Screen Gems agreeing to distribute a live-action version of the already extremely cinematic story. Neil Druckmann, the creative director for the game, will write the script on behalf of developers Naughty Dog.

They’re also responsible for the Uncharted series of games, and Horrible Bosses helmer Seth Gordon is currently attached to direct a movie based on that franchise.

The Last of Us will be produced by Naughty Dog co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra, along with Druckmann and game director Bruce Straley. Interestingly, Sam Raimi is also set to produce the adaptation through his Ghost House Pictures banner. That makes sense due to the horror elements of the game that this movie is based on.

The Last of Us follows survivors Joel and Ellie on their journey through a radically transformed world, 20 years »

6 March 2014 12:59 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The post-apocalyptic tale of Joel and Ellie will make the jump to live-action after all.

In a statement, Naughty Dog’s co-president Evan Wells outlined the creative vision for the film:

“Our partnership with Sam Raimi, Ghost House Pictures, and Screen Gems to develop a film based on The Last of Us universe is a perfect fit. Since our game released last June, we’ve talked with many companies about making a film, but we couldn’t have found better partners who share our creative vision and high standards.”

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – March 3rd 2014

3 March 2014 4:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This week it finally happened, Lovefilm is no more, it has now been completely consumed by its Amazon overlords and is now known as Amazon Prime and something that operates totally through your Amazon account should you have one.

At first this was a baffling experience, there was rumours of a lot more new content being added and when you logged into the Ios app for Lovefilm/Amazon post switchover, suddenly you were faced with A Lot of new content, things like Aliens, Congo, Cujo, Invaders from Mars and lots of HBO shows including Eastbound and Down, Enlightened and the Sopranos as well as Community in the ‘Recently Added’ section.

Of course this was too good to be true and you could add these to your watchlist but then not actually watch them. So when things calmed down and you logged back in, these titles it turned out were part »

Adam Sandler to Try Something Different and Team up With Kevin James for ‘Pixels’

27 February 2014 2:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Are you ready for some shocking news that’s about to blast you out of your damn seat? Hang on to the edge of your desk, chumps, because it’s about to get postively mind blowing up in here. Adam Sandler — get this — is starring in a new movie with  – you’re not going to even guess this one, don’t even try — Kevin James. Still with me? I know it might take awhile to sink in. But the good news is that what they’re teaming up for is pretty exciting. The Happy Madison venture is called Pixels, an adaptation of a beloved short film by writer-director Patrick Jean in which famous 1980s video game characters come to life and wreak havoc on New York City. The now big-budgeted comedy is taking the small-scaled story and amping it up into something along the veins of Ghostbusters, reportedly — and with King of Kong director Seth Gordon on »

Josh Gad & Kevin James Joining Adam Sandler for 'Pixels' Adventure

26 February 2014 12:27 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Way back in 2010, Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison production banner picked up the short film Pixels in order to adapt it into a big screen adventure focusing on a slew of 1980s video game characters like Space Invaders attacking New York City, leaving four champion arcade gamers are called back into action to save the world. At one time, Seth Gordon was eyeing the project as a directing gig with Sandler in the lead, but as we learned last summer, it will be Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Home Alone director Chris Columbus at the helm. Now we have word on two cast members who will be joining Sandler. If you need a refresher, here's the original, cool short film Pixels from Patrick Jean: Columbia Pictures is behind the film with a script from Sandler collaborator Tim Herlihy (Bedtime Stories, Big Daddy) and rewritten by Timothy Dowling (Role Models, »

Adam Sandler Will Play Pixels' Game

26 February 2014 8:31 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in 2010, Patrick Jean scored a hefty blip on the awareness-o-meter with his short film Pixels (below), which saw ‘80s video game characters attacking the real New York City and turning the city’s actual blocks into virtual ones. Adam Sandler and Sony jumped on the idea for a feature film and now Sandler is set to star with Kevin James and Josh Gad also in talks to sign on.Unlike some of his cotemporaries, Jean didn’t actually win the chance to direct: that job is going to Chris Columbus, who has been considering the idea since last year. The feature-length version of the concept, written by Sandler veterans Tim Herlihy and Tim Dowling, starts with the idea of aliens using video game icons to attack humanity, and four champion arcade gamers (including Gad and James) are summoned back into action to help save the world.
