Mexican actor Eugenio Derbez’s latest romp, “How to Be a Latin Lover” is set to become Pantelion Film’s widest release ever in the U.S., likely to more than double the Televisa-Lionsgate joint venture’s release standard of 350 to 400 screens when it opens on April 28.

Videocine, the film distribution arm of Televisa, will be rolling the comedy out to some 2,500 screens in Mexico on May 5.

“We are expecting this film to deliver, it’s got heart and a highly promotable cast,” said Pantelion COO Edward Allen.

When he’s dumped by his wealthy 80-year old wife for a younger stud, he’s forced to move in with his estranged sister, played by Salma Hayek, and her son with whom he bonds. Other cast members include Raquel Welch, »

‘Other Space’: Watch Paul Feig’s Lost Sci-Fi Comedy Series

4 February 2017 2:55 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 2015, Paul Feig released “Other Space,” his sci-fi comedy that ran for one season on Yahoo! Screen. Now, in an attempt to build a larger fan base and seek a new broadcaster for a potential Season 2, the “Ghostbusters” helmer has shared all eight episodes of the series online at www.ShareOtherSpace.com.

The comedy stars Karan Soni, Milana Vayntrub and Neil Casey, as well as “Mystery Science Theater 3000” legends Joel Hodgson and Trace Beaulieu. “Other Space” is set in the early 22nd century and follows the misadventures of a bickering space exploration crew whose star cruiser ends up lost in an unknown universe.

Upon its release the series received critical acclaim, yet it toiled in anonymity on Yahoo’s fledgling streaming service, which has since shut down.

“The fact nobody saw it, that’s what makes me crazy. It’s just never had its day in court,” stated Feig, »

Deadline reports that actor, comedian, and Fox football mainstay Rob Riggle has been cast alongside Chris Hemsworth and Michael Shannon in Horse Soldiers, Nicolai Fuglsig’s upcoming film about American Special Forces infiltrating Afghanistan in the aftermath of 9/11.

Rob Riggle Saddles Up For Afghan War Drama Horse Soldiers

3 February 2017 10:33 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Rob Riggle had amassed a collection of comic roles over the past few years – from Sony’s Jump Street series to Dumb and Dumber To and everything in between – the actor is now beginning to transition to more dramatic fare.

And so, following roles in both A Happening of Monumental Proportions and Midnight Sun, Riggle has signed on for Horse Soldiers, an Afghan war drama in which he’ll play his former Army Colonel, Max Bowers. Per Deadline, Rob Riggle actually served under Bowers during his time in Afghanistan circa 2002, which no doubt ensures that the actor will bring first-hand knowledge and experience to the role. Doug Stanton’s nonfiction novel will serve as primary inspiration for Horse Soldiers, which documents the harrowing journey of an untrained captain who orders a team of U.S. Special Forces into a rugged, mountainous area of the Middle East in the weeks »
