Disney to develop 'The Princess Bride' stage adaptation

11 November 2013 12:05 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

While the Broadway-bound Aladdin is going through a whole new world of previews up in Toronto, Disney has found its next theatrical endeavor: the 1987 adventure comedy The Princess Bride.

Disney Theatrical Productions announced Monday that William Goldman’s 1973 novel and subsequent 1987 film adaptation would be the next in line for development by Disney’s stage arm. Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn (who worked closely on the film) shepherded the deal, which allows the piece to enter the arduous process of development for the stage.

The Princess Bride is a cult-favorite fairy tale rom-com about the love story between a »

‘Once Upon a Time in Wonderland’ promises a kick-ass Alice

11 October 2013 1:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) In fairy tales, one “once upon a time” frequently begets another, so it should come as no surprise that ABC’s hit drama "Once Upon a Time" is expanding beyond Storybrooke this year. While the core TV series has set sail for Neverland in its newly launched third season, Last night saw the premiere of the franchise’s first spinoff "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland". To anchor the series, creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz have found faces new and old (and sometimes computer-generated), including Sophie Lowe as Alice, "Lost" alum Naveen Andrews as "Aladdin‘s" Jafar, and Keith David, Iggy Pop »

Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton Are The Stuff of Legend to Disney

10 October 2013 12:26 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan have made a career out of messing with our heads and giving us one gore-soaked terror tale after another. Now they're looking to screw your kids up, too! Read on for details.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Melton and Dunstan, the writing team behind four of the seven Saw films, are moving into family-friendly territory as they have been tapped to adapt Disney's live-action family film The Stuff of Legend.

The project, which is based on a graphic novel written by Mike Raicht and Brian Smith and illustrated by Charles Paul Wilson III, revolves around a band of toys that journeys into a dark realm to rescue their owner from the infamous Boogeyman. Animator Peter Candeland (All Dogs Go to Heaven 2, "Aladdin") is attached to direct the film, which is being produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman through their Disney-based Mandeville Films.

Found in Wonderland: A Non-Love Triangle, a Red Queen/Jafar Alliance and Surprise Appearances

10 October 2013 6:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, there was Alice, an ordinary girl who… kicks butt and tangles with genies?

Yes, ABC’s newest fantasy drama (premiering Thursday at 8/7c) is most definitely not your childhood Wonderland story, given its feisty heroine and the dash of Aladdin thrown in (hello, Jafar!).

From an evil union to a couple that does not hook-up to the familiar faces popping up, here are six things we learned about this latest trip down the rabbit hole, during TVLine’s visit to Wonderland by way of Vancouver, Canada.

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1990

18 September 2013 11:28 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Simon Brew Ryan Lambie 19 Sep 2013 - 07:20

From dramas to action and everything in between, here's our pick of 20 underrated films from 1990...

Think back to the big films of 1990, and you'll probably immediately come up with things like Ghost, the year's top-grossing film, or maybe Home Alone, which made a star out of the young Macaulay Culkin.

If you're into sci-fi or action, you might pluck Total Recall, Back To The Future Part III or even Die Hard 2 out of your memory banks. But what about all those movies that didn't make it into the year's top 10 ranking films? As ever, there's a huge number of duds and forgettable flops, but there were plenty of films that were wrongly overlooked, too.

That's where this list comes in, which aims to shed a bit of light on 20 films that were either unfairly overlooked by audiences at the time, or »

‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’ Getting An Animated Reboot

8 February 2013 6:11 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I was just getting over my withdrawal from Christmas, when suddenly this piece of news came about. I must admit, i’m afraid of a relapse. Back in the 60s Dr Seuss’ tales were mostly animated as TV shorts, and then came the dark ages of live-action interpretations with Ron Howard’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas and Mike Myers as Cat In The Hat. More recently we’ve seen the world of Seuss represented in CG animation with the likes of Horton Hears A Who and The Lorax (my least favourite film of last year). So at the risk of seeming as though they have zero ideas left, How The Grinch Stole Chrostmas is to get the feature length animated treatment.

Universal and Illumination Entertainment, the guys behind Despicable Me, are producing while Peter Candeland is going to direct. This will be Candeland’s cinematic directorial debut after years »

Universal and Illumination Developing Animated How The Grinch Stole Christmas Reboot

7 February 2013 5:00 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal Pictures is taking another stab at the Dr. Seuss classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas!.  Over a decade after Ron Howard’s live-action film starring Jim Carrey, Universal and Illumination Entertainment—the studio behind Despicable Me—are developing an animated adaptation of the classic childrens book.  Peter Candeland is set to direct, and Illumination’s Chris Melendandri will produce with Seuss’ widow Audrey Geisel onboard as an executive producer.  Hit the jump for more details. How the Grinch Stole Christmas! will be Melendandri’s third Seuss adaptation after the charming Horton Hears a Who and the abysmal The Lorax.  Variety reports that producers are currently looking for a screenwriter to tackle the adaptation, but the studio is planning The Grinch as their next Dr. Seuss film to hit theaters.  This is a tad curious, as it was announced last March that an adaptation of The Cat in the Hat »

The Guide's 1,000th issue - 1994-1999

Revisiting 18 years of pop culture, from Britpop to the Spice Girls, via Father Ted

1994: Mad fer it!

Issue No 1 Previously a broadsheet section in the newspaper, The Guide was expanded into a magazine proper on 27 August 1994. Nobody bothered to archive a copy, though, so the best we can do is show you a Xeroxed reproduction of the cover. At the time we were concerned with the weird state of science shows on TV and had a wander around the Notting Hill Carnival.

Spotted! All Saints From a review of their single Silver Shadow: "Born in the same year and in the same area of London, what else could these girls do but form a swingbeat group? Their debut is a sickly Atlantic Starr cover with an idiotic number of mixes, encompassing every dance style bar Morris. Eternal may rest easy in their Timberlands." Note: swingbeat was a form of »
