Exclusive: Tonight, the 27th American Cinematheque Award honors Hollywood’s longest-running and most commercially successful producer in Jerry Bruckheimer. Over the past 40 years, Bruckheimer has been the most consistent generator of films that filled theaters, moved popcorn and displayed more onscreen explosions than anyone else. First with late partner Don Simpson and then as a solo act, Bruckheimer’s films have earned estimated worldwide revenues of $16 billion in ticket sales, video and recording revenues, and he once had 10 TV series on networks in a single season, a record that still stands. Bruckheimer has something to prove as he moves from Disney to Paramount in the wake of the disappointing returns on The Lone Ranger. Bruckheimer doesn’t relish looking back as he starts a new chapter in a storied career that will include more installments of franchises Pirates Of The Caribbean, National Treasure, Bad Boys, Beverly Hills Cop and Top Gun. »

This week, the long-rumored production of Bad Boys 3 moved forward at Sony Pictures under the new leadership of co-president Michael De Luca, whose mandate has been to bring Sony back to higher quality tentpole films. What better way to get back to big action tentpoles than to go back to the franchise that delivered $273 million at the box office 10 years ago? Somewhere, the characters of Edgar Wright’s Hot Fuzz are excited, as is yours truly. But while the in-talks status of Safe House writer David Guggenheim on the project certainly is news in the right direction, many questions still remain. The biggest of which revolves not just around the franchise’s two leading men, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, but about the two men behind the camera who built the world around two volatile Miami narcotics cops: Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer. Initial reports are just that, initial, and »

Over the course of a career that has spanned over three decades, Tom Cruise has taken on a variety of roles, with a filmography that includes films such as Risky Business, Top Gun, Born on the Fourth of July, Minority Report, Collateral, and Tropic Thunder. His attachment to a project often piques interest, as it did when he signed on for his latest feature. Titled Edge of Tomorrow, the film sees Cruise working with director Doug Liman on a script adapted from Hiroshi Sazakuraza’s All You Need is Kill. Joining Cruise onscreen will be Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Jeremy Piven, and Lara Pulver. The first trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

Back in 2009, we got word that Sony Pictures was developing Bad Boys 3, a sequel to the Michael Bay action franchise starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Then in 2010, producer Jerry Bruckheimer said, "It's a wish and a hope and a dream. We've been working on a screenplay, which is excellent. It's an idea Will gave us, so hopefully, it will come to fruition, we would love it to." But it's been three years and no dice. But now the project has life again as Deadline reports Sony, with producer Michael De Luca situated as production co-president, has hired Safe House scribe David Guggenheim to write Bad Boys 3 this time. Bruckheimer is still back to produce (though he's situated firmly at Paramount Pictures with a new deal that includes more Beverly Hills Cop and Top Gun), and the studio is hoping to get Smith and Lawrence back for the sequel, »

Yesterday I reported that producer Jerry Bruckheimer had ended his relationship with Disney and inked a deal with Paramount, where he’d have more flexibility. I also pointed out that he’s seemingly looking to his past to try and ignite some future successes- with the word being that he was looking at sequels for Beverly Hills Cop and Top Gun. Well, the news today is that he’s continuing down that road. Over at Sony, Bruckheimer is now trying to get Bad Boys III off the ground. According to Deadline, a writer has all ready been tapped to write it.
David Guggenheim, who wrote the Ryan Reynolds-Denzel Washington thriller Safe House, is apparently the man for the job. Safe House was a moderate hit, and Sony is hoping he can write a script good enough to entice Will Smith and Martin Lawrence to return for a third outing as Lowrey and Burnett. »

Hollywood mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who’s had a lucrative run with Disney for many years now, has moved on. According to Deadline, the Pirates of The Caribbean producer has signed a deal that would bring his Bruckeimer Films shingle to Paramount with a three-year first-look agreement. The man’s films have grossed over $16 billion over the years, and he’s known for loving “big” movies- ie. blockbusters, tentpoles, action/effects-heavy sagas. His last one, though, didn’t fair so well. The Lone Ranger was a commercial and critical failure for Disney, but it’s unlikely that’s the only reason their relationship ended.
Bruckheimer told Deadline, “I have a lot more freedom than at Disney.” He’s seemingly referring to the fact that Paramount will give him more leg room to set up projects elsewhere, where as his deal with Disney didn’t allow for that. He’s also said »

Finally, a bit of good news for those in favor of arming Eddie Murphy and unleashing him on unaware California residents. Jerry Bruckheimer, the megaproducer behind the Pirates of the Caribbean films and so many Michael Bay productions, has decided upon his new post-Disney partner, and it is Paramount Pictures. Many giganto-huge blockbusters will surely stem from this new partnership, but the first are to be Top Gun 2 and a Beverly Hills Cop reboot. Both have been talked about for years, but now 26 years later we’re finally on track to see an aged Tom Cruise ejecting himself from a series of aircraft — and yes, according to Deadline, both Cruise and Murphy are set to return to these new installments. It’s the same old story. Movie was popular several decades ago. Now it’s being redone. But the difference here is Bruckheimer, who was a producer and major creative force on both the original Top Gun »

This interview from way back in 2009 with Paul Rudd and Jason Segel is Over The Top. It's Over The Top and Top Gun, Young Guns, and Mighty Joe Young as well. This is just one example of the seven minutes of babble the poor interviewer is subjected to while Rudd and Segel press onward high or just being themselves! Were they on drugs? You be the judge. It's a hilarious interview that you have to watch all the way through! When you're done, watch the next video of them doing fart impressions during another interview.

Celebrity break-ups are something of a guilty pleasure to look in on, and one of this years’s biggest separations was that of long-term couple Jerry Bruckheimer and Walt Disney Studios. In the wake of The Lone Ranger bombing spectacularly at the box office, it was announced that Bruckheimer and Disney would be going their separate ways after 20 years in business.
Bruckheimer’s Disney legacy includes the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which has been extremely lucrative for the company so far in a trend that seems set to continue when Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is released in 2016. Bruckheimer has no doubt been ...

Jerry Bruckheimer has finalized a new three-year first-look deal with Paramount Pictures, with the sequels Top Gun 2 and Beverly Hills Cop 4 among the first projects he plans on getting off the ground. We reported in September that the producer is not renewing his deal with Disney, which expires next year. His deal with Paramount begins in April 2014.
Top Gun 2 has been in development for quite some time, but we haven't heard anything about the sequel since director Tony Scott committed suicide last August. Tom Cruise is attached to star, reprising his role as Pete "Maverick" Mitchell from the original Top Gun. Peter Craig (The Town) signed on to write the script last March, but it isn't known if he is still involved.
Jerry Bruckheimer’s move from Disney to Paramount is now official. The prolific producer and Disney decided to part ways after the box office bust of this summer’s The Lone Ranger, on which Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski argued successfully for a budget north of $200 million. Paramount officially announced today that Bruckheimer has finalized a three-year first-look deal with the studio set to begin next April, returning him to the home where he got his start as the producer of films like Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop, and Days of Thunder. Per Deadline, Bruckheimer’s first film back at Paramount will be the long-developing Beverly Hills Cop 4, which Brett Ratner will direct after he finishes up Hercules. Eddie Murphy is reprising his role and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol scribes Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are penning the screenplay. Additionally, the Top Gun sequel is another priority for the studio, »

Jerry Bruckheimer has just announced a new, three-year deal to make movies at Paramount, following TheWrap’s break of the news earlier this week.

In an interview with TheWrap, Bruckheimer discussed his upcoming departure, a “Top Gun” sequel and some other movies he might make.

TheWrap reports that Bruckheimer has officially signed a three-year deal with Paramount Pictures. The producer's relationship with Disney -- which yielded "Pearl Harbor," "The Rock," and the blockbuster "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise -- ended in September.
"I will have the freedom and opportunity to make various kinds of pictures, which I didn't have at Disney," he told TheWrap of his decision.
However, Deadline reports that a reboot of "Cop" will likely come first, under director Brett Ratner, »

After a number of rumours over the last few weeks, Paramount Pictures and powerhouse producer Jerry Bruckheimer have confirmed they’ve reunited for a first look deal.

Hollywood, CA (December 6, 2013) – Paramount Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer have reached a three-year, first-look agreement for theatrical films that will begin in April 2014.

Bruckheimer’s first picture with the studio under the new deal is targeted to be a new Beverly Hills Cop, which is being written for Eddie Murphy by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec, who together wrote Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
In September, Disney and Bruckheimer agreed not renew their first-look deal - after 27 films, earning more than $5.4bn worldwide - when it expires in 2014. The studio and producer will continue working together on projects including the fifth instalment of Pirates Of The Caribbean.

Paramount Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer have reached a three-year, first-look agreement for theatrical films that will begin in April 2014, the new partners said Friday. TheWrap broke the news this week that a deal between Bruckheimer and Paramount was close to being finalized. The new pact returns Bruckheimer to the place where he and his late producing partner Don Simpson crafted some of their biggest hits during the 1980s. Among those decade-defining blockbusters were “Top Gun,” “Beverly Hills Cop” and “Flashdance.” In fact, Bruckheimer’s initial projects at his new home should leave him in a nostalgic frame of mind. His first. »
