Ivan Reitman’s original Ghostbusters 3 title and casting choices revealed

5 hours ago

Yesterday we heard some plot details for Paul Feig’s upcoming all-female Ghostbusters remake, and now the latest round of Sony leaks has given us some insight into Ivan Reitman’s original plans for Ghostbusters III, which stem from an email last year from the director, which was sent to Sony co-chariman Amy Pascal and concerned the second draft of the script.

Titled Ghostbusters: Alive Again, the film would have focussed on Ray (Dan Aykroyd), Egon (Harold Ramis) and Winston (Ernie Hudson) passing the torch to a younger team of Ghostbusters which included ‘Chris’, the son of Bill Murray’s Peter Venkman (who is assumed to be Oscar, Venkman’s son with Sigourney Weaver’s Dana Barrett).

For the role of Chris, Reitman said that he had met with Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) but stated that he was “unsure” about the casting. »

Update: Sony scraps The Interview, considering a premium VOD release in the wake of terror threats against exhibitors

6 hours ago

Things seem to be going from bad to worse for Sony. Despite all the free publicity for The Interview in the wake of the Guardians of Peace hack, the New York premiere was cancelled and the majority of U.S. exhibitors have decided to pull the film from its Christmas release in the wake of worrying 9/11-style terror attack threats from the anonymous hackers.

Now Variety is reporting that the studio is considering a premium VOD release for the comedy, which sees James Franco and Seth Rogen recruited by the CIA for an assassination attempt on Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator. The site reports that Sony plans to make the film available for exhibitors should they choose to screen it on its original release date, although with the likes of AMC, Regal, Cinemark and Carmike opting against it, the studio is facing a headache as to how it might recoup its $42 million budget, »

New poster for American Sniper starring Bradley Cooper

6 hours ago

With Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper set to land in the States on Christmas Day, Warner Bros. has released a new poster for the film, which stars Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history…

He is the deadliest American sniper ever, called “The Devil” by the enemies he hunted and “The Legend” by his Navy Seal brothers. From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States Military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more then 150 of Kyle’s kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him Al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned a legendary status among his fellow Seals, Marines, »

7 hours ago

There’s less than five months to go before Marvel brings the curtain down on Phase Two of the Cinematic Universe with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the director has been speaking in depth to IGN about the hotly-anticipated sequel, including expanding the world of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with the introduction of new characters like The Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, and of course the AI villain Ultron.

Casting notice out for Robin’s parents in Gotham

7 hours ago

Last month, Gotham star Ben McKenzie revealed that the Graysons could be heading to the Batman prequel series, with showrunner Bruno Heller subsequently stating that they’re planning a “prenatal origin story for Robin” where we’d learn how Robin’s parents met.

Well, it looks like we should expect an appearance from Dick’s mother and father in the latter half of the first season, with TV Line revealing that a casting notice is out for the characters of John Grayson and Mary Lloyd, “teenage circus performers who will figure into Episode 16 and hint at the origin of a certain Boy Wonder.”

The article also goes on to reveal that Episode 17 will introduce two new characters: “Dr. Dulmacher (aka another Dollmaker), this time conceived as a mad European scientist, and Reggie Payne, an old army buddy of Alfred’s who has gone a bit to seed.”

Gotham will return to Fox on January 5th. »

Don’t expect to see Spider-Ham in Sony’s Spider-Man universe, but you might get Santa Claus Burglar

8 hours ago

As those responsible for hacking into Sony continue to leak new files, some details have emerged concerning negotiations with Marvel about numerous minor supporting characters from the Spider-Man universe, and whether they are available to the studio for its movie franchise. And if you were hoping to see Spider-Ham on the big screen, I’m afraid you’re out of luck – at least while Sony has the Spidey movie rights…

According to Business Insider, the latest batch of leaked emails contains a spreadsheet identifying hundreds of supporting Spidey characters, and whether they are available to Sony, or have been “frozen” by Marvel. Among the little-known characters that Sony didn’t want are Mother Inferior, Agent 003 and The Black Abbot, while Marvel rejected approaches for Spider-Ham (a.k.a. Peter Porker) and Bag-Man (a.k.a. Peter Parker, with a paper bag on his head).

However, one character that Sony seemed »

Tim Burton confirms Winona Ryder return for Beetlejuice 2

9 hours ago

Over the past couple of weeks both Michael Keaton and Tim Burton have been speaking about the long-rumoured Beetlejuice 2 – with Burton stating this week that “it’s probably closer than ever” – and now the director has confirmed that Winona Ryder will be back for the sequel.

“Oh yeah,” Burton told MTV News when asked if he’d be directing the follow-up to the 1988 supernatural comedy during a promotional interview for his new film Big Eyes. MTV then asked if Ryder would be back, with Burton responding: “Oh yeah, yeah yeah yeah. Oh yeah, oh yeah. Yeah yeah, oh yeah.”

After presumably tiring of the word “yeah”, the filmmaker then added that: “I worked with [Ryder], I hadn’t seen her in awhile… and she was so great. I was so happy to see her. So those kinds of elements mean something to me. Michael, and her… and that character, I just miss it, »

Comic Book Review – Star Trek #39

10 hours ago

Villordsutch review Star Trek #39…

In Star Trek #39, “It’s the penultimate chapter of the The Q Gambit! Captains Kirk and Sisko must work together to fight back against the forces of the Dominion! Meanwhile, Spock attempts to free the Enterprise and her crew from the clutches of the nefarious Dukat! And just what is Q planning for everyone involved? The fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance.”

Arriving at Part 4 of Mike Johnson’s Star Trek: The Q Gambit and with Dukat in the previous issue really upsetting the apple cart and our heroes spread across the quadrant there are certainly a lot of threads to bring to a nice neat bow in these final two issues.  On top of all of this we still have to find out what Q’s plan actually is for Kirk; it’s an awful lot to accomplish and my fingers are »

Comic Book Review – 2000Ad Prog 2015

11 hours ago

Oliver Davis reviews 2000Ad Prog 2015…

Borag bumper-editioning Thung, Earthlets! It’s the last 2000Ad issue of 2014, and the Mighty Tharg has blessed us all with a 100-page spectacular.

Judge Dredd bookends the special with separate stories at the front (more on which later) and back (more on which now). Michael Carroll’s closer, ‘The Ghost of Christmas Present’, follows the story of corrupt businessman’s bodyguard and Hitman-cosplayer Titus Axle. After seeing the ghosts of people he’s murdered, he has a change of heart from the killing game. More of a Mega City tale than a Dredd one, but with that aforementioned opener still to come, you can’t get too grinchy.

You know what other story is more Mega City than Dredd? Rob Williams and D’Israeli’s Low Life. Their tale of undercover judge Dirty Frank is one of 2000Ad’s most beloved strips, this time round »
