Universal Pictures has hired “Starry Eyes” filmmakers Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch to rewrite and direct “Mama 2,” for which Jessica Chastain is not expected to return, an agency insider has told TheWrap. Andres Muschetti directed the original horror movie, which grossed $71 million at the domestic box office on a reported production budget of just $15 million. Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau played a couple who take in their orphaned nieces when they’re abandoned in the woods for five years.

Tyler Perry Studios has started production on a new Madea film titled “Boo! A Madea Halloween,” which Lionsgate will release on Oct. 21, 2016. Perry will write, produce, direct and star in the latest Madea movie, which will also be produced by Ozzie Areu and Will Areu. The film’s origins date back to when Perry and Chris Rock conspired to include a fictitious Madea Halloween movie in Rock’s film “Top Five.” Lionsgate then approached Perry and suggested that they make the movie for real.

The level of hype around True Detective: The Complete Second Season means it had a huge job to do. The first season created something special with the relationship between Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, and created a mythology. Where the second season fails is that it totally forgets that altogether… While calling it a failure is harsh, the simple fact is that it is. There is no getting away from it. What is also true though is that when you remove it from the True Detective bubble, it is also a very good, dark cop show. It’s just not the one we wanted.
In the second season we have three cops, Detective Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell), Detective Ani Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams), and office Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) who are investigating a murder. This brings in a connection to Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn) and together they are the connected »

Which actors will take home the gold at this year's Oscars? While it's a nice thought that the winners in each category will ascend the steps of the Dolby Theatre based on merit alone, we all know that's not how it works in this silly town. Judging the quality of a specific performance relative to other performances is a highly subjective thing, and certainly subject to pre-existing biases. With that in mind, is it any less ridiculous to predict the winners in each category based on age, height, net worth and relationship status? I say it's not! Let's have some fun. Below, my rankings and predicted winners in each category based on totally irrelevant personal stats. (Note: All "net worth" numbers are based on 100% accurate Google search results.) Best Actress 5. Saoirse Ronan, Brooklyn Height: 5'6" Age: 21 Net worth: $2.5 million Relationship status: Single? 4. Brie Larson, Room Height: 5'7" Age: 26 Net worth »

Source: INFphoto.com It's been more than 11 years since The Notebook made you feel all kinds of emotions, including those feelings about Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling as a couple. They were a real-life duo for two years before their split in 2007, and they've both since moved on with multiple matches. Rachel was serious with Michael Sheen and rumored to have dated her True Detective costar Taylor Kitsch, while Ryan and his current leading lady, Eva Mendes, welcomed a daughter together in 2014. Ryan and Rachel might be over, but in honor of the their epic love in The Notebook - and their recent reunion at the Golden Globes - we're looking back at 10 sweet snaps that will really make you want them back.

Created by: Nic Pizzolatto
Synopsis: A bizarre murder brings together three police officers and a career criminal in the corrupt city of Vinci, California.
Rather than all the hype and instantaneous reaction, it’s much easier to say that following any first season of any superbly written drama with the addition of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson is going to have to be something special. But True Detective creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto took a brave step by making a whole new world for his murky, crime-ridden plans with new characters and so although bringing Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch together seemed intriguing, would it work? Well, the jury is still in-between as a whole but stepping away from the machine and diving in with less over-excitement is sometimes a good place to start.

Back in November, producer/screenwriter Simon Kinberg confirmed that production on 20th Century Fox's X-Men spinoff Gambit will begin sometime this spring, describing the movie as a "sexy heist thriller." Channing Tatum is still set to star as the card-throwing title character, with Léa Seydoux portraying the female lead, Belladonna "Bella" Boudreaux. Today we have a new report from Wgno, which reveals that the movie will start production this March in New Orleans.
20th Century Fox previously issued an October 7, 2016 release date for Gambit, putting it up against Warner Bros.' The Accountant, Disney's The Girl on the Train and Lionsgate's Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life. Production was originally set to begin on Gambit last fall, but the production schedule shifted after director Rupert Wyatt (The Gambler) dropped out in September. The production got back on track with Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow), but the studio »
Jake Lacy is set to join Jessica Chastain in EuroraCorp and FilmNation’s “Miss Sloane,” a hot-button political thriller about gun control, TheWrap has learned. Alison Pill (“The Newsroom”) will co-star in the movie, which John Madden is directing from a script by first-time screenwriter Jonathan Perera. Ben Browning will produce for FilmNation, while Patrick Chu will serve as executive producer. Chastain will star as a seasoned D.C. lobbyist who finds personal and professional redemption pushing for reasonable gun legislation, which has been a controversial topic in America of late.

Welcome back to This Week In Discs where we check out tomorrow’s new releases today! True Detective: The Complete Second Season A dead man is found alongside the Pacific Coast Highway, and the case draws four people together in surprising and deadly ways. Officer Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) is a war vet turned motorcycle cop with secrets in his past and present that he can’t afford to let out. Ex-detective Velcoro (Colin Farrell) works security now but continues to find himself at the mercy of a dirty businessman named Semyon (Vince Vaughn). Finally, Det. Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) avoids her own past by focusing on a very ugly present. The case brings them together even as they all know it’s going to tear them apart. I didn’t watch season two of HBO’s previously-acclaimed/currently derided series while it aired, but I sure did hear all of your bitching about it. Seeing »

The new year in Blu-ray begins with one, maybe two, clear winners. Sicario: A top 10 pick of the year, per our writers (including myself), this is a pulse-pounding thriller that should look spectacular on Blu-ray, thanks to Roger Deakins' spellbinding photography. Our own Jason Gorber opined: "On the surface this is a taut, beautifully executed drug drama, and director Denis Villeneuve's talent for keeping tension high is very much on display. Diving deeper, this is a film that tackles deep moral ambivalence, asking questions more than giving answers." True Detective: Season 2: My high expectations were dashed as the series mumbled and stumbled through a disorienting, disappointing second season, not helped at all by the limited abilities of Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Kitsch...
