Reese Witherspoon to Play Tinkerbell in Live-Action Disney Movie

21 May 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Disney’s been on a heavy trend of revisiting its animated classics in the form of live-action remakes, but the most recent addition is actually the resurrection of a project that’s been in development for years. In 2010, Elizabeth Banks became attached to star in Tink, a live-action movie that would follow Peter Pan character Tinkerbell and aimed to “play with the mischievous nature” of the fairy. The project obviously has yet to come to fruition, but in 2012 Banks still sounded optimistic, saying they had a great script and were continuing development. Since that time, Disney has put into development/production/release the live-action films Maleficent, Cinderella, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo, Mulan, Winnie the Pooh, Pinnocchio, and a twist on Jack and the Beanstalk. Now, it appears, there’s new life in Tink, although Banks doesn’t appear to be involved anymore. THR reports that Reese Witherspoon »

Reese Witherspoon to Star in Disney’s Live-Action Tinker Bell Film

21 May 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Reese Witherspoon is attached to star in Disney’s “Tink,” a live-action film based on the “Peter Pan” character Tinker Bell.

Witherspoon will also produce the pic with her producing partner Bruna Papandrea through their Pacific Standard banner.

Victoria Strouse is penning the script.

Plot details are unknown other than that the film is set in the world of the classic novel with Tinker Bell in full focus.

The project is still in development and there is no timeline for it to go into production.

It’s yet another project based on a classic Disney animated pic that is being given the live-action treatment. Disney has already seen live-action versions of “Alice in Wonderland,” Sleeping Beauty story “Maleficent” and “Cinderella” become box-office hits and sees this as a formula that works as well as a comicbook pic.

The studios has “Beauty and the Beast” in production and is also developing »

Reese Witherspoon to star in Disney's live-action Tinker Bell film

21 May 2015 1:11 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Please, I've had enough; can these live-action takes on Disney's classic characters just end already? There are already so many of them in various stages of development, including Beauty And The Beast, The Jungle Book, Dumbo, Mulan, Pinocchio, Winnie The Pooh, and Jack And The Beanstalk. The newest character to receive the live-action remake treatment will be none other than that feisty little fairy, Tinker Bell. THR reports that Reese Witherspoon is attached to star in and »

Cannes Europe-Latin America Buyers Guide: Titles Cross Over

18 May 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In international, every territory is its own story and that includes arthouse markets — but patterns emerge. In some parts of Latin America, such as Mexico and Colombia, arthouse audiences may be growing, though from a low base. The key: Dedicated arthouse/alternative circuit construction, and support from major exhib circuits. Many, but not all, European markets suffer diminishing youth attendance and TV sales.

Big hits can be spectacular, including “Beauty and the Beast” for Peru’s Delta and Cine Colombia’s “La Famille Belier.” Individual initiatives are encouraging: ABC Cinemien’s monthly Lgbt night creates an event out of theatrical attendance. One problem for Latin American movies in Europe is that they are frequently not European films. Euro titles, in contrast, far more often tap Euro distribution awards. But Latin American films will always have Paris. The surprise isn’t that Brazil’s Tucuman Films has set up a French distribution op there, »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Stone (Thrillingly) Assassinates Truth While Investigating Kennedy Assassination

14 May 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'JFK' movie with Kevin Costner as Jim Garrison 'JFK' assassination movie: Gripping political drama gives added meaning to 'Rewriting History' If it's an Oliver Stone film, it must be bombastic, sentimental, clunky, and controversial. With the exception of "clunky," JFK is all of the above. It is also riveting, earnest, dishonest, moving, irritating, paranoid, and, more frequently than one might expect, outright brilliant. In sum, Oliver Stone's 1991 political thriller about a determined district attorney's investigation of the assassination of U.S. president John F. Kennedy is a slick piece of propaganda that mostly works both dramatically and cinematically. If only some of the facts hadn't gotten trampled on the way to film illustriousness. With the exception of John Williams' overemphatic score – Oliver Stone films need anything but overemphasis – JFK's technical and artistic details are put in place to extraordinary effect. Joe Hutshing and Pietro Scalia's editing »

CW chief talks 'Constantine' rumors, 'Legends of Tomorrow' and '100' plans

14 May 2015 6:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Shortly after The CW announced its 2015-16 schedule absurdly early on Thursday (May 14) morning, CW President Mark Pedowitz took 20 minutes of questions from reporters about what is and isn't on the network's roster.  The CW's fall features three hours of DC Comics-related programming -- if you include "iZombie" -- but several early queries related to things that aren't on the schedule, at least not yet. The "Flash"/"Arrow" spinoff "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" is being held for midseason and Pedowitz noted that it isn't necessarily being viewed as a "Agent Carter"-esque bridge between seasons of an established show, saying that all three of those shows could and possibly will air at the same time. "It is a possibility because of the fact that... 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' is part of the 'Flash'/'Arrow' universe. The character will criss-cross as needed and we'll have »

The CW's 2015-16 Schedule: 'Legends of Tomorrow' to midseason, 'Originals' joins 'Vampire Diaries,'

14 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The CW closed out the 2015 Network TV Upfronts on Thursday (May 14) morning by announcing its 2015-2016 schedule. It's a schedule that mixes a couple nights of stability with some big moves, including the expected decision to hold "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" for midseason, along with the thriller "Containment," making "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" the network's only new series for fall. Let's go night-by-night: That lone new series premiere, the Showtime transplant "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," is taking the week's first hour, landing on Mondays at 8 p.m. going into Golden Globe-winning "Jane the Virgin." That means "The Originals" is on the move, but we'll get there in a second. Tuesday remains untouched from the spring with "The Flash" leading into midseason success "iZombie." Also untouched from spring is Wednesday with "Arrow" going into "Supernatural." On Thursday, after trying to keep them apart for two years, "The Vampire Diaries" and "The Originals" are joining forces as a two-hour vamp-block. »

7 May 2015 4:07 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With the TV upfronts imminent, networks are making final decisions about which shows on the bubble will be returning to our screens next season.

ABC in particular has made their choices public today with over twenty series officially set to come back including "Marvel's Agents of Shield," "Agent Carter," "Castle," "Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy," "How to Get Away With Murder," "Nashville," "Black-ish," "American Crime," "Secrets & Lies," "Galavant," "Beyond the Tank," "Fresh Off the Boat," "The Goldbergs," "The Middle" and "Modern Family".

The CW renews iZombie for second season

6 May 2015 11:08 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

What’s not yet known is when the second season is expected to debut; iZombie premiered midseason just two months ago, and will wrap its ten-episode freshman year on May 19th.

iZombie is just the latest of The CW’s shows to get a renewal, the others being Arrow, The Flash, The 100, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Reign, Beauty and the Beast, Masters of Illusion and Jane the Virgin

Based on the Vertigo comic from Chris Roberson and Mike Allred, iZombie was developed for TV by Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, and stars Rose McIver.

Brainy CW renews 'iZombie' for Season 2

6 May 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The CW already had very few shows on the bubble with upfronts looming next week and now the network has one fewer. As was fully expected, The CW has picked up "iZombie" for Season 2, joining a daunting number of shows already renewed for next year. With so much inventory, The CW is not announcing an episode order or return timetable for the DC Comics adaptation. "iZombie" joins "The 100," "Arrow," "The Flash," "Jane the Virgin," "Supernatural," "The Vampire Diaries," "The Originals," "Reign" and even "Beauty and the Beast" on The CW's extended slate for the 2015-2016 season.  Since The CW only has 10 hours of weekly programming space and since the network is also expected to pick up a currently-untitled "Arrow"/"Flash" spinoff and since The CW's fall is likely to include a few things like the ending of an "America's Next Top Model" cycle and possibly "Whose Line Is It Anyway, »

‘Cinderella’ Waltzes Past $500 Million at Global Box Office

6 May 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

She nabbed her prince, settled down to live happily ever after, and just waltzed past an important box office milestone.

Cinderella” crossed the $500 million mark at the global box office, Walt Disney Studios said Wednesday. Produced for $95 million, the fantasy romance is part of the company’s strategy to mine its catalog of animated classics for fresh live-action family films. In coming years, Disney will adhere to the formula, and it’s moving forward with live action versions of “The Jungle Book,” “Dumbo,” “Mulan,” “Pinocchio” and “Beauty and the Beast.”

Cinderella” has taken in nearly $195 million domestically, while it has made more than $308 million internationally. Those are impressive numbers, although they pale in comparison to “Maleficent’s” $758.4 million global bounty or “Alice in Wonderland’s” $1 billion haul; both of those movies similarly used animated films as jumping off points.

Cinderella” was directed by Kenneth Branagh and stars Oscar winner Cate Blanchett, »
