Tropic Thunder screenwriter to pen Cannonball Run revival

21 March 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. has snapped up the rights to the Cannonball Run franchise, tapping Tropic Thunder and Men in Black 3 screenwriter Etan Cohen to pen a new film, which is being described as a “relaunch” rather than a “remake”.

Revolving around a cross-country race, the first film was released by Fox in 1981 and was a huge hit at the box office, earning over $72 million from its $16 million budget. Warner Bros. released the 1984 sequel Cannonball Run II in 1984, while Orion released the third film Speed Zone (a.k.a. Cannonball Fever) in 1989.

'Cannonball Run' Remake Moves Forward with 'Get Hard' Director

15 March 2016 5:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After several years in development, Warner Bros. is finally moving forward on a new incarnation of The Cannonball Run. Deadline reports that the studio has secured the rights to the original 1981 classic, hiring Etan Cohen to write the script and direct. This report claims the studio doesn't consider this project a "remake," but rather a "relaunch" of the franchise.

Back in 2011, we reported that Warner Bros. was in discussions to team up with auto manufacturer General Motors for a Cannonball Run remake. At that time, the studio was eyeing directors such as Guy Ritchie (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) and Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian). It seemed that deal never went through, but now the studio has acquired the sequel and remake rights from the copyright holders, original The Cannonball Run writer Brock Yates, the estate of director Hal Needham and Fortune Star Ltd.

Review: "Hooper" (1978) Starring Burt Reynolds, Sally Field And Brian Keith; Blu-ray Release

11 February 2016 1:22 PM, PST | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By John M. Whalen

Back in 1978, Burt Reynolds was still at the beginning of a cycle of six action comedies that he made with director Hal Needham—a cycle that started with “Smokey and the Bandit “(1977) and ended with “Cannonball Run II” (1984).  One of the best of these films was “Hooper”—a tribute to Hollywood’s unsung hero, the Hollywood stunt man. “Hooper” was a very personal film for both Reynolds and Needham who both started their movie careers as stunt doubles. Needham started doing stunt work in the early years of live TV in New York and is best remembered for his stunt driving in Steve McQueen’s “Bullitt” (1968). Reynolds also began in TV and parlayed his athletic ability along with his good looks to become one of tinseltown’s biggest stars. In a very real way, “Hooper” is even more personal film for Reynolds, because one of the »

Veteran Actor Abe Vigoda Dead At Age 94; "The Godfather" And "Barney Miller" Among His Credits

By Lee Pfeiffer

Abe Vigoda, whose hang-dog expression and low-key mannerisms help propel him to fame, has passed away at age 94. Vigoda toiled in films and TV without notable success until director Francis Ford Coppola cast him in the key role of Tessio, a mob lieutenant in the Corleone crime family in the 1972 classic "The Godfather".  Tessio was one of the most trusted "employees" of the Corleone family but following the death of its patriarch Vito Corleone, Tessio is discovered to be planning the assassination of the new godfather, Michael Corleone. Memorably he is led away to his execution with typical understated emotion. Vigoda's stock in the film industry rose immediately and he became a popular character actor, appearing in such films as "The Cheap Detective", "The Don is Dead", "Newman's Law", "Look Who's Talking" and "The Cannonball Run II »
