Emmy-award-winning TV director Miguel Sapochnik has signed on to make a Sinbad movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Unfortunately, that should not be misinterpreted as a cinematic vehicle for ’90s-era comedy genius David “Sinbad” Adkins. This will be a film adaptation of the 14th-century Middle Eastern story-cycle of Sinbad The Sailor. Which also has the potential to be pretty good, especially since Sapochnik really made a name for himself due to his work on Game Of Thrones.
The British-born filmmaker took home a Primetime Emmy last month for “Battle Of The Bastards,” one of four episodes he helmed for the HBO fantasy series on which Jingle All The Way star Sinbad has not yet worked for some reason. He’s directed episodes of a number of highly regarded shows, including House, Masters Of Sex, and True Detective, as well as the 2010 feature film Repo Men.

Kindergarten Cop 2, 2016.
Directed by Don Michael Paul.
Assigned to recover sensitive stolen data, a gruff FBI agent goes undercover as a kindergarten teacher, but the school’s liberal, politically correct environment is more than he bargained for.
“It’s not a tumour!” Right, now that’s out the way, that brings us nicely to the somewhat unexpected sequel to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1990 cult favourite, Kindergarten Cop. The original didn’t particularly pick up rave reviews on its release but it had a good box office return and has endeared itself upon audiences more and more over the years. It’s an Ahnuld film I particularly enjoy, even if it’s never quite sure whether it’s an Arnold film or a family friendly jape. Whatever it is, it’s good fun.
So 2016 has rolled around. »

If you ever thought about wanting to switch lives with your cat, maybe think again.
Nine Lives stars Kevin Spacey as a wealthy businessman, but a bad father. After missing his daughter's birthday (again), he attempts to make it up to her by getting her a cat. What he actually gets is much more than he bargained for.
Reminiscent of other comedies like Liar, Liar, and Jingle All the Way, Nine Lives takes this concept of the absentee father to a new level, and this film also features Christopher Walken playing with the life of a negligent parents, just as he did for Adam Sandler in Click. Now Spacey must try to indicate to his family that he is inside of their new pet. We're getting flashbacks of Being John Malkovich.
