'Frequency' TV Show Is Happening with 'Supernatural' Producer

13 November 2014 2:39 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Another old movie is getting the TV reboot treatment. NBC plans to turn the 2000 time travel thriller Frequency into a weekly series, with Supernatural writer, producer and show runner Jeremy Carver creating this new take on the material.

NBC has issued a script-plus-penalty commitment for what is being described as a character driven drama. Jeremy Carver will write the pilot episode, which is set to focus on a NYPD detective who connects with his son 30 years into the future. Father and son will work together to change history and stop several tragic events from coming to pass. In the meantime, they will find time to heal their own fractured relationship.

Toby Emmerich wrote the original feature film, which took place in 1999, and followed a homicide detective (James Caviezel) who makes contact with his late father (Dennis Quaid) 30 years in the past, on the day of his death. The two work »

Us networks plot film spin-offs

13 November 2014 1:32 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Major Us broadcasters are developing more than 20 TV adaptations of feature films as they follow the example of their cable counterparts.

Us pay-tv networks have recently found success with the likes of Fargo and Teen Wolf, and have lined up further adaptations of Scream (MTV), Twelve Monkeys (Syfy), Shutter Island (HBO) and Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead (Starz).

Traditional networks - ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW - are now getting involved and have struck deals for adaptations of well-known films including Big, Minority Report and The Devil’s Advocate, as well as more niche films such as John Ritter’s Problem Child and Val Kilmer’s Real Genius.

The networks have ordered scripts for the 20-plus adaptations and will decide which projects to pilot by January. Those taken to series will likely be ordered in May for an autumn 2015 launch.

The Bigger Picture: Networks’ Film To TV Reboot Trend – Slideshow

12 November 2014 12:02 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

It’s been a season of remakes, with the broadcast networks loading up on series projects based on movies. More than a dozen reboots are in the works. That includes shows based on big-budget blockbusters Minority Report and Rush Hour, which landed big commitments at Fox and CBS, respectively, as well as a slew of adaptations of 1980s films, including Big, Real Genius, Problem Child, Bachelor Party and Uncle Buck. Why so many remakes? Having a pre-sold title always helps launching a show. But this year, many top showrunners are tied on shows and unavailable to develop original concepts, prompting the networks to go for familiar premises. Here’s a slideshow of the movies that are being remade by the broadcast networks this season:

From 'Big' to 'Marley & Me': We weigh in on TV's remake fad

29 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I generally pay as much attention to the broadcast network development season as I do to the baseball draft. Though the shows that actually survive development are much closer to airing chronologically than most baseball draftees are to the majors, the winnowing process is just as brutal in both cases. On average, a given network will hear 3-400 pitches a year, order scripts for 60-70 of them, make 8-12 pilots and put roughly between a half dozen and a dozen of them on the air. So I’ve usually found development not worth worrying about until shows are actually ordered to series and scheduled. That said, it’s been tough to ignore this fall’s development season, where it seems like every day for the past few weeks, my Twitter feed has blown up a few times an afternoon with news of a familiar movie or TV property being adapted »

Tom Hanks' Bachelor Party Being Adapted into a TV Series at ABC

25 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Tom Hanks' classic 1984 comedy Bachelor Party is set to be adapted into a TV series by ABC. Bachelor Party was Hanks' second big feature film after Splash, and it's a hilarious movie that is a must see for any comedy fan. The series is described as being a half-hour comedy anthology series.

Variety says that the show will "examine relationships and the institution of marriage through the lens of three couples: one about to get married, another recently divorced and a third just falling in love. They will experience the trial-by-fire that is the modern day, co-ed bachelor/bachelorette extravaganza."

This isn't the first classic Hanks' movie to get a TV series order. Fox recently announced that they are developing a series based on the 1988 movie Big. I wonder how Hanks feels about his movies being turned into TV shows.

Week in Review: Disney’s ‘Moana’ sets sail for 2016

24 October 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Disney’s Princesses are some of the most beloved cartoon figures in history, but even they have come under scrutiny as Hollywood pushes for more diversity in their films. Disney’s latest princess will be the first of Pacific Islander descent (unless you count Lilo of Lilo & Stitch as a princess). The CG-animated film is Moana, the story of a born navigator who travels through ancient Oceania along with a demi-God pal named Maui in order to find a secret island.

Deadline reported Monday that the film would be aiming for a November 2016 release date and would be directed by Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog). In the meantime, we’ll be awaiting Pixar’s Inside Out and Finding Dory, both anticipated for 2015. And Deadline reported back in 2013 several other slots for two other Disney and Pixar films in both March and »

Although we're still not certain who she's playing, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star Jena Malone is reuniting with Sucker Punch director Zach Snyder for a mystery role in the much-anticipated comic book showdown Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

We're sharing our thoughts on this week's Most Craved along with discussion about Eli Roth's just-announced plans to remake Cabin Fever with the same screenplay and the tremendous amount of nostalgia-driven franchises headed to television ("Full House," "Big," "Rush Hour," "Bachelor Party," and "Uncle Buck" just to name a few). »

Tom Hanks' 'Bachelor Party' is the latest movie-to-tv remake

Tom Hanks' “Bachelor Party” is the latest movie-to-tv remake ABC has ordered a “comedy anthology series” based on the raunchy 1984 film, co-created by Regis Philbin’s daughter, J.J. Philbin. The “Bachelor Party” series will focus on three couples: "one about to get married, another recently divorced and a third just falling in love.” Toys ‘R Us yanks “Breaking Bad” action figures following a Florida mom’s complaints "Let's just say, the action figures have taken an indefinite sabbatical,” Toys ‘R Us said in a statement, following pressure from a Florida mom who gathered 8,000 signatures. Tina Fey recalls casting Jan Hooks on “30 Rock,” says: “Jan should have had a bigger career ... as big as Rob Schneider's f*cking career" “We needed to cast Jane Krakowski's estranged Florida dirtbag mother, and I thought, My God, do you think we could get Jan Hooks?” Fey recalled on Monday night, adding »

ABC Gives Put Pilot to Project Based on Tom Hanks’ ‘Bachelor Party’

21 October 2014 6:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hanks' "Bachelor Party" Becomes A TV Series

21 October 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following word of a TV series based on "Big" currently in development, not to mention a failed attempt last year to adapt "The Money Pit" into an NBC series, yet another Tom Hanks comedy from the 1980s is being dusted off for a small screen reboot.

ABC has given a put pilot commitment for "Bachelor Party," a half-hour comedy anthology series loosely inspired by the 1984 film and produced by some of the key people involved in Fox's "New Girl".

The show examines relationships and the institution of marriage through the lens of three couples: one about to get married, another recently divorced and a third just falling in love. Like "American Horror Story" and "True Detective," each season will focus on a whole new batch of characters.

20th Century Fox TV will produce the show which Jj Philbin, Jake Johnson, Jason Winer, Max Winkler and Renate Radford will executive produce. »

Zombeavers & Other Great Movie Animals

20 October 2014 1:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Today sees the release of Zombeavers, in which a group of spring breakers are terrorized by a horde of killer beavers. It’s sounds ridiculous (because it is, of course) but these bloodthirsty little buggers continue a long tradition of awesome animals on the big screen. In case you’ve forgotten, here’s a countdown of some of cinema’s greatest ever beasts.

10. Flying Monkeys – The Wizard Of Oz (1939)

What’s more terrifying than an evil pointy-nosed witch? Try an evil pointy-nosed witch with an army of flying monkeys! In the original Oz books, the winged simians were mischievous but intelligent creatures, but by the time they received their big screen debut they’d mutated into the stuff of nightmares.

As Dorothy and her gang find themselves in a darkened forest, the Wicked Witch of the West sends her sinister army to monkey-nap them, and they are returned to the Witch’s castle pronto. »

News: Bill Murray Crashes a Bachelor Party!

So, when Et caught up with the 64-year-old at the St. Vincent premiere, we had to ask if he took anything home from Clooney’s wedding.

While Bill is typically a very private actor when it comes to his personal life, so much so that you have to call a 1-800 number to reach him, the »
