'Galaxy Quest' Is Heading To TV

21 April 2015 5:10 PM, PDT

All of you liked Galaxy Quest, right? Of course you did. Who wouldn't like a film that managed to sendup and pay homage to our favorite sci-if series Star Trek?

At any rate, if you enjoyed the flick, then you may like the news I have for you today.

Hollywood trade brings word that Paramount has decided to move forward with a television series based on the film.

Quest's original writer, Robert Gordon, will pen the script as well as executive produce the new show with Dean Parisot, who directed the original film, and Mark Johnson, who produced it.

Galaxy Quest starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam RockwellDaryl Mitchell and Enrico Colantoni. As much fun as it would be to see the band get back together, I imagine there will be an entirely new cast.

What do you think of this? »

Joss Whedon Loved Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man' Script

21 April 2015 5:06 PM, PDT

Fanboys everywhere were shocked and more than a little disappointed when Marvel announced that writer/director Edgar Wright had left Ant-Man. After All, Wright had been working on the script, along with Joe Cornish, for a few years, and had even cast the film's lead actors.

Josh Whedon (do I really need to list his Marvel credits?) was one of the people fortunate enough to have read Wright's script, and has nothing but good things to say about it.

I thought the script was not only the best script that Marvel had ever had," said Whedon, "but the most Marvel script I’d read. I had no interest in Ant-Man. [Then] I read the script, and was like, Of course! This is so good! It reminded me of the books when I read them. Irreverent and funny and could make what was small large, and vice versa. I don’t know where things went wrong. »

'The Conjuring' Team To Bring 'The Entity' Back To Theaters

21 April 2015 8:25 AM, PDT

James Wan is continuing to cement himself as the modern day Wes Craven. The Malaysian filmmaker may have just scored his biggest hit ever with Furious 7, but his roots in the horror genre go deep. Between SawThe Conjuring, & Insidious, Wan has created a steady stream of horror hits. It looks like he's now ready to shepherd a new project, though his exact role is currently unclear.

The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Wan has signed on to produce a remake of The Entity, about a single mother who is abused physically and sexually by a supernatural force. The original film came out in 1983 (the year I was born! Good year, that was!), and this one will likely not go into production until Wan is done shooting The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist this fall. 

Similar to his Conjuring movies, The Entity is based on a true story- which »

Fox Has Released 5 New Photos From 'Fantastic Four'

21 April 2015 8:01 AM, PDT

Twentieth Century Fox is preparing to relaunch the Fantastic Four brand later this year, and they're hoping it leads to big things. In this current pop culture landscape, where shared universes are all the rage, Fox sees a gold mine in the fact that they still own the rights to produce films based on The X-Men and The Fantastic Four. With Simon Kinberg in the driver's seat for both franchises, as the architect for their future, the writing is on the wall that if Ff is a hit we could see some serious crossover action between the titles at some point.

This new take on Fantastic Four is coming out on August 7 and was directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle). Trank will also be helming one of the upcoming Star Wars Anthology standalone films. For this reboot, Trank secured a cast that includes Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell. »

Well, anyone feeling the fatigue that comes whenever a studio announces it's launching a "Cinematic Universe" based around one of its properties may want to click away from here. 

It now looks like Hasbro and Paramount are working on expanding their Transformers franchise into an all-out universe. During Hasbro's 2015 Q1 Earnings Conference Call, CEO Brian Goldner made the following statement regarding the future of the series:

"Our plan with the studio and filmmakers, you may have heard some writers being hired and we have in fact brought in Akiva Goldsman to lead a group of writers to really create a strategic plan around Transformers. We think there are any number of stories to be told from the brand that has been around for 30 years with amazing canon and mythology. We would expect the sequel to the Transformers movie [TF4] to happen in 2017."

Some of you may remember that Zane was in the original Zoolander. He was kind of randomly in a scene where Derek and Hansel are having a confrontation that leads to a walk-off (think the male model equivalent of a dance-off).
