James Franco Targets Father-Daughter Comedy 'Why Him?'

27 February 2015 5:01 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

James Franco is in talks to star in the 20th Century Fox comedy Why Him?, which will be produced by Shawn Levy's 21 Laps company and Ben Stiller's Red Hour Pictures. Both of the production companies are based on the 20th Century Fox lot.

The plot centers on a Midwestern father who takes his family on a trip to Stanford, to visit his daughter during the Christmas holiday. What started as an innocent family trip quickly spirals out of control, as the father gets into an unexpected competition with his daughter's new boyfriend, a young Internet billionaire. While Variety doesn't specify which role James Franco will play, it seems likely that he will portray the billionaire boyfriend.

John Hamburg (I Love You, Man, Along Came Polly) is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Nick Stoller (Neighbors, The Five-Year Engagement) and Ian Helfer (The Oranges). No production schedule was given at this time, »

’71’ Director Tapped to Helm Thriller for New Regency and Plan B

27 February 2015 2:49 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Regency has acquired an untitled thriller and set “71” helmer Yann Demange to direct the pic.

Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner will produce through their Plan B banner along with Angus Lamont and Molly Smith. Demange’s “71” scribe Gregory Burke penned the script.

Plot details are unknown.

Demange has been one of the more sought-after directors in Hollywood following the critical acclaim of “71,” which stars “Unbroken” star Jack O’Connell in the story of a British soldier who is left behind in Belfast after a riot.

New Regency has increasingly found ways to team with high-profile directors like Steve McQueen on “12 Years a Slave” and Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, who is coming off of his Oscar win for “Birdman,” and is directing “The Revenant,” staring Leonardo DiCaprio, for the company, which will open the film next Christmas.

New Regency and Plan B see Demange as a director with strong storytelling skills. »

'21 Jump Street' Director Talks 'Men in Black' Crossover

24 February 2015 3:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in December, emails leaked from the Sony hack revealed that Sony Pictures is contemplating a crossover between their 21 Jump Street and Men in Black franchises, which will presumably both come together in 23 Jump Street. 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street director Phil Lord revealed last month that their "crazy idea" for a crossover is still in play. Phil Lord's directing partner Chris Miller has now chimed in on the crossover, revealing that it's still very early in the development process, and that he is currently working on it with stars Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and 22 Jump Street writer Rodney Rothman.

"Well, it's very, very early on in this crazy fever pitch, but it's definitely a really interesting concept that makes you think. Talking about it, developing it with Jonah and Channing and Rodney and the studio, we can't just do the, 'Hey, it's the same thing again' schtick because we did that already. »

Chris Miller Says 'Jump Street' Meets 'Men In Black' Is "A Really Interesting Concept That Makes You Think"

24 February 2015 8:28 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the weirder things to come out of the Sony hack was a proposed “21 Jump Street” and “Men In Black” crossover. Jonah Hill apparently digs the idea, and last month, Phil Lord said it was still on the table. Chris Miller reiterates that point, saying that it's a way they can do a third movie without repeating themselves, and the idea seems to have latched on.  "...it’s very, very early on in this crazy fever pitch, but it’s definitely a really interesting concept that makes you think. Talking about it, developing it with Jonah and Channing and [co-writer] Rodney [Rothman] and the studio, we can’t just do the, 'Hey, it’s the same thing again' schtick because we did that already," Miller told ComingSoon. "If we’re going to do something, it’s got to be different but still have that same very specific 'Jump Street' flavor to it, »

Director Chris Miller talks Jump Street/Men in Black crossover movie

24 February 2015 12:14 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Chris Miller didn't rule out merging the Jump Street franchise with the Men In Black universe for 23 Jump Street after it was leaked that Sony was considering the idea, but the question is will it actually happen? It just might be crazy enough of an idea to work, and during an interview with Coming Soon, Miller again says there could be a Jump Street and Men In Black crossover movie. However, Miller also says he's still trying to figure things out with Sony, stars Jonah Hill »

'Ghostbusters' Wants 'SNL' Star Cecily Strong for Key Role

18 February 2015 9:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back before the four leads were announced for the new all-female Ghostbusters, it was being reported that both Workaholics star Jillian Bell and current Saturday Night Live cast member Cecily Strong were coming in to test for the reboot. Now, it's being reported that, while she didn't land a role as one of the main Ghostbusters, Cecily Strong is still wanted for a key character that was tailor-made for her specific comedy style.

Director Paul Feig and writer Katie Dippold have created this new character for Cecily Strong, which is the next biggest role outside of the core group of Ghostbusters aside from the villain. She is said to be an authority figure who secretly supports and helps fund the four heroines, though publicly she denounces their efforts and activities. She is quite vocally against them in the media, hoping to avoid panic amongst the citizens of New York »

Watch: Full, 82-Minute Comedy Central Roast Of James Franco Hosted By Seth Rogen

17 February 2015 10:24 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It might be the bleep-heavy prime time broadcast version, but hey, it’s free. There’s very little chance you’ll be assassinated while sitting on your couch checking out Comedy Central’s “Roast of James Franco" from 2013, which has made its way online in its entirety. There’s a lot to roast Franco about (although perhaps not as much as Justin Bieber, Comedy Central’s upcoming roastee), so the dais has a blast taking him down a peg or twelve. His pretentious Renaissance Man shenanigans, his sleepwalking hosting gig at the Oscars, his many terrible acting and directing work —nothing is off limits. Some of the highlights of the show include Andy Samberg’s oddly self-deprecating set, Bill Hader’s hilarious turn as “The President of Hollywood”, and Jonah Hill’s earnest and heartfelt reactions to every single low hanging fruit fat joke. It might have been Franco’s roast, »

Todd Phillips’ post-Hangover career is taking a swift turn into meatier territory with his upcoming movie, Arms And The Dudes, which has now added yet another new name to its starry line-up. Per Deadline, Ana De Armas has signed on to star alongside the recently-announced Miles Teller as his girlfriend.

For those unfamiliar with the movie, it’s based on a Rolling Stone article by Guy Lawson that revolves around the mishaps of a couple of stoners who wind up dealing weapons. Originally, Jesse Eisenberg and Shia LeBeouf were down to play the pair, until scheduling conflicts arose leaving the parts available for Oscar-nominee Jonah Hill and Teller. Also on board to produce are Scott Budnick, Mark Gordon, and Bryan Zuriff from a script by Jason Smilovic.

The movie marks another step up the industry ladder for Armas. The actress’ latest effort, Eli Roth’s Knock Knock, saw her star alongside Keanu Reeves. »

Title: True Story Director: Rupert Goold Starring: Jonah Hill, James Franco, Felicity Jones What defines a true story? Many films include an introduction of “based on a true story” to emphasize the significance of their content and to make known the fact that the plot is drawn from real events. This film gets its title straight from its subject’s book of the same name, which details one former New York Times reporter’s time spent interacting with a man accused of murdering his family. What is true and what is fiction is undetermined, and this film has much more to do with the nature of truth and what it means to  [ Read More ]

‘Magic Mike’ Is Child’s Play Compared to Channing Tatum’s Nsfw Stripping Video

12 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Sit down, kids. We’re going back to a much simpler time — a time of dry humping, banana hammocks, and full-on hand-to-junk grabs. You thought Channing Tatum and his moves in Magic Mike were sexy, but your virgin eyes haven’t seen anything yet. A throwback video of baby Channing in action during his real-life stripper days surfaced on the Internet a few years ago, but it’s time for the gift that keeps on giving to make the rounds once again. In the video, we see where some of the much tamer Magic Mike moves came from. I mean, wow. I feel like I need a cigarette after watching and I don’t even smoke.

Here’s hoping that some of the raunchiness will be turned up a notch in Magic Mike Xxl (the trailer is promising). These adorable set photos will likely hold you over until the July premiere. »
