Warner Bros Connects With iPhone Salesman/Scribe’s Pitch For ‘I Am Legend’ Reboot

9 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: After years of trying, Warner Bros finally has found a way to extend its hit Will Smith last-man-on-Earth blockbuster I Am Legend into a potential new franchise. The studio is working on a reboot that isn’t meant to star Smith, who has been reluctant to do sequels and so far has avoided a reprise in Independence Day 2. Warner is retrofitting A Garden At The End Of The World, a spec script that the studio bought back in April from Gary Graham, who was working at the Apple store in midtown Manhattan when he posted his script on the Black List website and got the attention of CAA and manager Brooklyn Weaver. They signed him and sent his script out. Amid several bids, Warner Bros acquired what was described as a sci-fi version of John Wayne’s The Searchers. When Graham was brought in to rewrite his script, the »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

16 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Will Smith Is Still the Fresh Prince - and Here Are 11 Reasons Why

25 September 2014 4:09 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Will Smith may have solidified his place on the A-list with blockbuster films like Bad Boys, Independence Day, The Pursuit of Happyness, and the Men in Black trilogy, but we'll never forget how he got his start: as the basketball-playing, backward-hat-wearing funny guy on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It's safe to say that time has been very good to Will, and in addition to his youthful looks, he's also retained his boyish charm and infectious laugh. In honor of Will's 46th birthday today - and because we're still devouring those Fresh Prince reruns - here are 11 examples that prove he's still Bel-Air royalty. »

If the Scottish Referendum was a Hollywood blockbuster…

18 September 2014 2:36 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Imagine the scene: a group of Hollywood big-wigs are sitting around their glass desk, dressed in 80s power suits (yes, they’re so out of touch they Still dress like its 1985), debating what film they can remake next. Then it hits them! Today is the day of the Scottish Referendum, the day England and Scotland go to political “war” (see, told you they’re out of touch). Of course, they thought, the last time Hollywood mined Scottish and English history it was a barnstorming box-office success. So why not try it again? If Braveheart could be a hit with all it’s historical inaccuracies, why couldn’t they make another historical epic?

So they began to research the referendum. Scotland want independence. Check. Scotland wants its own political landscape. Check? The English politicians are terrified that other countries in the “United Kingdom” will follow suit. Check. Even more than that, »

Intl Box Office Final: No. 1 Bragging Rights In China Too Close To Call As ‘Storm,’ ‘Expendables 3′ And ‘Apes’ Fight It Out

15 September 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

4th Update, Monday, 2:43 Pm Pt: Who was No. 1 this weekend in China? It’s just not clear. Although Warner Bros reported $7.7M this afternoon for Into The Storm, Fox reported $7.64M for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and it looks like Expendables 3 ended up with $7.5M (according to Rentrak). But China reporting on box office is always a bit sketchy and numbers tend to fluctuate, which may be why another final total for Into The Storm shows it pulled in only $7.16M. Warners is sticking by its $7.7M number (which includes previews). So, to be fair to both parties, it’s really too close to call.

Final grosses are in for Guardians Of The Galaxy and other films including The Maze Runner (which bows in the states next weekend), The Boxtrolls (which won’t bow until September 26 in the U.S.), Dolphin Tale 2, Lucy, Finding Fanny (which »

10 Most Important September 11 Movies

11 September 2014 1:58 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures/United International Pictures

The September 11 attacks, which took the lives of 2,977 innocent people, are the defining moment of the 21st Century thus far. The world was irreversibly changed and although over a decade has passed, the attack still cuts deep.

The tragedy had a big effect on popular culture. Suddenly wide-spread terror wasn’t an abstract concept. The mass-monument destruction of Independence Day only a few years before wasn’t the realm of sci-fi and movies increasingly found themselves skewing close to reality, with War Of The Worlds and Cloverfield being two noteworthy examples of films that utilised visual elements from the tragedy to create a sense of realism.

On top of providing some new cinematic language, the events of September 11, 2001 themselves have been prominent in the medium over the past thirteen years. Whether they’re representing the day’s events, delving into the politics of what happened »

Keanu Reeves and Roland Emmerich Team Up For New Angeles Series

10 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Keanu Reeves has teamed up with director Roland Emmerich to develop and produce a new TV series called New Angeles. They've hired Gregg Hurwitz, a New York Times bestselling author, to write the project. He's also written stories for Marvel and DC. 

The show will be set in the future, and the story is "based around a young man who escapes the mundane reality of his life by entering an exciting virtual reality world called New Angeles. Once down the rabbit hole, he adopts a new identity, becoming the man he was always destined to be, and in the process, unlocking the keys to a mystery that has real world consequences for him and his family."

There's definitely similar plot elements in the story that we've seen in other movies, like Reeves' own film The Matrix, but I think it has the potential to be a good series.

Keanu Reeves and Roland Emmerich Team up for New Angeles TV Series

9 September 2014 11:58 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Keanu Reeves and director Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, 2012) are teaming up to executive produce a new sci-fi series called New Angeles that Slingshot Global Media will produce and distribute.  There's no word yet on whether Reeves will be acting in the series, but Emmerich will direct the pilot himself so we can expect it to look and feel pretty big.  Gregg Hurwitz, who worked on the V television series, will write the pilot and executive produce as well. There's no word on when New Angeles will be hitting screens or if there's a full series order waiting after the pilot is shot, but the idea sounds sort intriguing in the sense that it more directly echoes The Matrix than you might expect.  Hit the jump for more on New Angeles. Here's the official synopsis for New Angeles: The show will be set in the future, based around a young man »

Any Keanu Reeves news is good news right? Well news has been brought forward today that he and Roland Emmerich are teaming up to executive produce a new sci-fi series called New Angeles. I was immediately looking to see if Reeves was going to star in the series but there’s no word on that just yet.

Keanu Reeves, Roland Emmerich to produce series about virtual reality

9 September 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

As Deadline first reported, the show will be distributed and produced by Slingshot Global Media, with Emmerich set to direct the pilot and executive produce the series while Reeves will serve as an executive producer.

Keanu Reeves And Roland Emmerich Enter Rabbit Hole For ‘New Angeles’

9 September 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In a development with a distinctly Nineties flavour, The Matrix star Keanu Reeves is to produce a drama alongside Independence Day director Roland Emmerich set in the world of virtual reality. New Angeles is created by comic book writer Gregg Hurwitz and concerns a real world nobody who becomes enmeshed in an electrical mystery set against the alternate setting of the title. Slingshot Media are producing, though following the announcement of another Reeves collaboration Rain it’s unclear at this stage whether he’ll stay behind the scenes in this latest production.

Despite the well-worn subject matter Slingshot’s David Ellender has commented excitedly on the show, whose Emmerich-directed pilot hits the slate soon:

We’re thrilled to have Roland and Keanu on board for a project of this magnitude. Roland’s masterful vision for this is extraordinary and Keanu’s action work behind and in front of the camera speaks for itself. »

Roland Emmerich and Keanu Reeves Partner on New Sci-Fi Series

9 September 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Well, "Stonewall" director Roland Emmerich hasn't completely changed his stripes. The man behind the upcoming, intimate gay civil rights drama who also brought us "Independence Day" and "The Day After Tomorrow" and "White House Down" is turning to the small screen -- on a new sci-fi series with co-executive producer Keanu Reeves. "New Angeles" will be set in the future, based around a young man who escapes the mundane reality of his life by entering the titular virtual reality world. Once down the rabbit hole, he adopts a new identity, and unlocks a mystery with real world consequences. So... "The Matrix"? In a sense. Emmerich will direct the pilot and remain involved in the series, to be distributed by Slingshot Global Media, as an executive producer.  He's currently in post on "Stonewall." His company Centropolis and Reeves' Company Films are on board to produce "New Angeles."  Nyt »

Dolphin Tale 2's teenage stars talk Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick Jr., and the life aquatic

9 September 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Everyone under of the age of sixteen is required by law to love dolphins. Okay, I'm clearly lying here, but it makes a whole lot of sense that Dolphin Tale was successful enough to warrant a sequel. People love dolphins.

In Dolphin Tale, a bottle nosed dolphin named Winter was rescued by a young boy (Nathan GambleThe Dark Knight) and the Clearwater Marine Hospital after she lost her tail to a crab trap. In its sequel, Winter, now content and healthy with a prosthetic tail, and Sawyer (Gamble) have grown up, but in no way have grown apart. They're as close as ever, as Sawyer and his best friend Hazel (Cozi Zuehlsdorff) have joined the staff of the Clearwater Marine Hospital, which is run by Hazel's father, Dr. Clay Haskett (Harry Connick, Jr., Independence Day). Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd show up and help out when they can.

12 Near-Miss Castings That Almost Improved The Marvel Cinematic Universe

8 September 2014 11:58 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WarpedFactor

There have been a number of near-misses and crazy casting rumours regarding characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – most of which we’re very pleased didn’t happen.

John Krasinski as Captain America, Tom Cruise as Tony Stark, Steve Buscemi as Bruce Banner and James Marsden as Star-Lord are just some of the near-miss castings that didn’t happen for the best.

In fact, in general, Marvel’s final casting decisions have mostly been spot on and it’s hard to argue with any of them – but there are a few that, while good, could still have been that little bit better. We don’t want to take away from the performances of the actors who did get the majority of these roles – as most of them did a decent enough job – but imagining certain other actors in the role does give us the impression that the characters in »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »
