Will Forte Talks ‘MacGruber 2′ Script Status

12 hours ago

Funnyman Will Forte earned himself accolades for the deft dramatic chops he unveiled in last year’s Nebraska opposite Bruce Dern, but he’ll most likely remain best known for the SNL-skit turned cult spoof of all thing’s ’80s MacGruber. The 2010 comedy directed by SNL alum Jorma Taccone has a passionate following, but despite an underwhelming box office turnout, talk of a sequel persists.

Admittedly, it’s been over two years since we last heard an update on the script for MacGruber 2, which, according to Forte’s comments at the time, ought to be done by now. Still, Forte is probably used to talking about a hypothetical sequel, a subject which invariably comes up while the actor is promoting a different movie.

Case in point, Collider recently talked ...

18 hours ago

A remake of John Carpenter’s 1981 cult classic sci-fi action film, Escape from New York, has been in the works for many years. However, the film has been stuck in early development with different directors signing on to helm the movie, then backing out, while many actors were rumored to revive the role of Snake Plissken (originally portrayed by Kurt Russell), including Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Jeremy Renner (The Avengers: Age of Ultron), Jason Statham (The Expendables 3), and Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road). Additionally, reports on the premise of the film have varied from a straight remake to a prequel that would reboot the series.Click to continue reading ‘Escape from New York’ Remake Actor Shortlist Includes Charlie Hunnam?

Rumor Patrol: Amazon Reviving ‘The Tick’ TV Show with Patrick Warburton

21 hours ago

If a new rumor is to be believed, The Tick, Ben Edlund’s cult favorite live-action TV adaptation of his uber-indie comic book of the same name, may be on its way back to television thanks to Amazon – and both Edlund and series star Patrick Warburton are said to be on board.

Launched on the credibility of the comic and the popularity of the mid-1990s animated series that was inspired by it, The Tick ran for just 8 episodes on Fox in 2001 (there is another episode that did not air but lives on the DVD and on streaming sites).

Well-received by many critics at the time, the show about a vigilante hero and his ...

Lynda Carter Comments on Wonder Woman’s ‘Batman V Superman’ Costume

29 August 2014 9:20 PM, PDT

It’s odd that even after all these years of superhero blockbusters, a hero or heroine’s costume can still be the biggest symbol of what direction a film will take – or the exact opposite. An audience’s first look at a superhero suit is always certain to draw mixed reactions, but in the case of Wonder Woman, casual and diehard fans alike took their time to process Gal Gadot’s new outfit when it was revealed at Comic Con 2014.

Gadot’s casting may have been deemed ‘controversial,’ but the costume itself received a surprisingly warm reception. But the lack of the classic red, white and blue color scheme isn’t lost on former Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter. ...

Netflix Shells Out $2 Million Per Episode to Stream ‘The Blacklist’

29 August 2014 5:55 PM, PDT

With its instant streaming service now firmly entrenched worldwide, Netflix is undoubtedly on top of the mountain when it comes to online movie and TV services.

That kind of market share brings with it huge profit margins, and the company has now decided to flex its monetary muscle in a big way. Netflix has agreed to shell out an astonishing $2 million per episode in order to acquire the off-network streaming rights to NBC drama The Blacklist.

Soundly trouncing the ratings numbers put up by every other scripted NBC series of the 2013-2014 season, The Blacklist burst onto the scene with both a recognizable leading man – James Spader- ...

‘Lego Movie’ Directors Producing ‘Greatest American Hero’ Series Reboot

29 August 2014 5:30 PM, PDT

The Greatest American Hero was a television series that ran for two seasons in the early ‘80s; it followed a teacher, Ralph Hinkley (William Katt), who is given a suit that grants him superhuman abilities. Ralph, with help from  FBI agent Bill Maxwell (Robert Culp) and lawyer Pam Davidson (Connie Sellecca), is tasked with saving the world from its own destruction. Greatest American Hero was created by Stephen J. Cannell, who also developed other popular television series in the ‘80s and ‘90s such as The A-Team and 21 Jump Street, which have been rebooted in recent years.

Now, Greatest American Hero will join The A-Team and 21 Jump Street in receiving the reboot treatment. ...

Liam Neeson Would Play ‘Arrow’s Ra’s al Ghul ‘In A Heartbeat’

29 August 2014 4:39 PM, PDT

Ever since its debut episode, the comparisons between The CW’s Arrow and Christopher Nolan’s most recent reboot of Batman have been impossible to miss. But since then Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and his surrounding cast of DC Comics heroes and villains have grown out of the Dark Knight’s shadow, adopting a similarly grounded style, but incorporating characters from the realm of “Batman” comics that even Nolan left off the big screen.

And with Season 3 of the series promising to introduce a brand new take on ‘League of Assassins’ leader Ra’s al Ghul, the pressure is on to live up to the strong performance Liam Neeson first delivered in Batman Begins. However, the showrunners ...

Bryan Fuller Talks ‘American Gods’; Expects Series to Air in 2016

29 August 2014 3:12 PM, PDT

Starz has a new hit TV series on its hands, with the fantasy novel series adaptation Outlander; the network aims to replicate that success when it brings the world of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods from the page to small screen. Gaiman’s work of modern Americana fantasy is a best-seller that’s won multiple prestigious awards (including the Hugo and Nebula); it also has a sequel novel in development by the author and shares characters in common with Gaiman’s Anansi Boys novel and the novella “Monarch of the Glen” (which revolves around the protagonist of American Gods, Shadow).

That is to say, there’s a reasonable amount of source material – and critically-acclaimed source material at that – for American Gods ...

Screen Rant’s 2014 Summer Movie Awards

29 August 2014 2:42 PM, PDT

The 2014 Summer Movie Season is now over, and it’s time for us to look back over the lineup of movies we either sat through, suffered through, or enjoyed in full. Being the year leading up to some much bigger years in summer cinema (see: the overcrowded 2015 lineup), 2014 wasn’t exactly packed with top-shelf material; but there were some important events of note.

There were big gambles on launching new franchises (Guardians of the Galaxy) or re-launching some older ones (Godzilla, Tmnt); established franchises tried to course-correct themselves into a shared universe expansion a la Marvel (X-Men, Amazing Spider-Man); and in between the big dogs, a few smaller films tried to gain notoriety (Snowpierecer). And of course, there was no shortage of ...

‘Batman V Superman’: Eisenberg Says Luthor is ‘Complicated’ & ‘Modern’

29 August 2014 1:12 PM, PDT

The battle of comic book titans being promised by Warner Bros, and Zack Snyder in the upcoming Batman V Superman may sell the most tickets, but for many, the battle of morals (not muscles) between Superman and Lex Luthor is the real showdown to look forward to. With Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer re-imagining the “Superman” myth for a modern, more grounded world, it only seems right that his nemesis should receive a similar treatment.

As much as the heroes and villains of comic books have attained the status of “modern myths,” there’s no denying that the idea of a ‘malevolent businessman’ changes with the decades. It’s no surprise, then, that according to Jesse ...

Will Comic-Con International Leave San Diego After 2016?

29 August 2014 12:52 PM, PDT

San Diego Comic-Con is a massive annual event for its host city, and has grown to dizzying heights since its humble beginnings in 1970. The convention draws over 130,000 attendees every year and spills over from San Diego Convention Center into the surrounding area as part of a massive, city-wide event. It’s also globally one of the biggest movie events of the year, especially for mainstream blockbusters based on comic book franchises (and there are quite a lot of those now).

In fact, Comic-Con is getting a little bit too big. In 2012, plans were put in motion to build a $520 million expansion to the convention center, which would increase its available space by 33%. Plans for the ...

‘Shaun the Sheep’ Teaser Trailer #2: Sheep in the City

29 August 2014 12:33 PM, PDT

Wallace and Gromit is by far Aardman Animation’s most famous creation and usually the first example that comes to mind when you think stop-motion animation. Sadly, with the declining health of Wallace’s voice actor Peter Sallis, creator Nick Park has announced that Wallace and Gromit is unlikely to continue.

Wallace and Gromit are definitely a tough act to follow, but Aardman Animation has since given another of their characters a chance in the spotlight: Shaun the Sheep. First appearing in the Oscar-winning Wallace and Gromit short “A Close Shave”, Shaun quickly became the star of his own spinoff show called simply, Shaun the Sheep.

The television series often sees Shaun (a sheep who’s brighter than most) and his other barnyard friends attempting to liven up their boring lives by mimicking humans, and usually failing by some hilarious means. Shaun’s fascination with human ...
