Drop Zone Mode Is Now Available In 'Modern Warfare 3'

19 December 2011 7:45 AM, PST | MTV Multiplayer | See recent MTV Multiplayer news »

The first community-created mode to get added to the game's multiplayer hoppers is ready to play, pretty cool.

Over the weekend, Infinity Ward pushed a new update live for Modern Warfare 3 which put the new "Drop Zone" mode into the new public "Community Playlist" hopper along with a couple of tweaks to other areas of multiplayer.

"Drop Zone" is a King of the Hill-type mode where opposing teams attempt to control a location on the map, earning points for every second that they occupy the target area. The twist is that for as long as the team controls that location, they receive air supply drops with weapons and support until the location changes. Also during this time, all killstreaks are disabled, so you'll have to rely on the supply crates for your turrets, Uav, etc. While I think the duration of the positions being held could be cut a »

First Max Payne 3 Multiplayer Details Tomorrow!

13 December 2011 11:59 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rockstar games announced today that IGN will debut a multiplayer feature article on Max Payne 3′s multiplayer modes tomorrow. What is most intriguing about the post is that it reveals already that there is “an explosive range of multiplayer modes”. I’m sure we can expect the usual Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, but what I’m most curious about is whether or not Rockstar will put a twist on Capture the Flag or King of the Hill.

Looking at the picture above, I’d bet it’s a screen grab from a Team Deathmatch game. Scanning the picture it appears to be Sao Paulo gangsters at the top fighting off assaulting Swat officers or Private Contractors. The screen alone is enough to keep me excited about the game.

Is it wrong to hope their variation of Capture the Flag is Intercept the Drug Package? Make sure to come back tomorrow »

Animated comedy project from Justin Theroux for Fox!

12 December 2011 8:40 AM, PST | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Fox buys Justin Theroux's script for an untitled animated comedy Theroux is writing the hour-hour which follows a guy who is like a present-day Archie Bunker, who pines for the nineties, while hating his New York surroundings. Vulture reports that there's a twist and, unlike the Archie of the the seventies, this grouser falls on the left wing of the political spectrum. The 20th Century Fox TV and 3 Arts Entertainment project is being executive-produced by King of the Hill and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Michael Rotenberg (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, King of the Hill). Film-wise, Theroux is up next in Wanderlust, and was last seen in Your Highness. He's also a solid scribe, with credits including the outstanding Tropic Thunder, Iron Man 2 and the upcoming Tom Cruise starrer Rock of Ages »

Modern Family: Ellen Barkin to Guest Star

TV Line is reporting that Ellen Barkin (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) has landed a role on Modern Family. Barkin is set to play Vera, a real estate heavyweight that will give Phil Dunphy all he can handle. The character will be introduced in an episode early next year; Modern Family, whose fall finale is tonight, will return on January 4th.

Barkin hasn't done a lot of TV in her career, appearing in a pilot this year (NBC's A Mann's World), a 2001 episode of King of the Hill, and a handful of TV movies. You can currently watch the award-winning actress in the black-comedy Another Happy Day (pictured above), where she plays a woman coming home for a family wedding.

The third season of Modern Family, which has seen the show's highest ratings yet, has thus far featured several notable guest stars, »

Geek Gossip Pt 1: Woody Woodpecker, Samurai Jack, RoboCop

22 November 2011 2:48 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Kicking off today's eclectic round-up of bits and pieces, it appears that Woody Woodpecker is tapping furiously on the doors of Hollywood.

The crimson-coiffed cartoon character with the distinctive laugh is heading to the big screen in a feature film planned by Universal's animation studio Illumination Entertainment.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, scribes John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky are in talks to develop a story featuring the boisterous bird, who first appeared on our screens in 1940.

The duo wrote and produced animated shows The Goode Family and King of The Hill along with an episode of Beavis and Butt-Head. In addition, they co-wrote the 2007 ice-skating comedy Blades of Glory starring Will Ferrell.

Another possible animated adaptation has resurfaced with Immortals director Tarsem Singh saying he wants to make a live-action version of Samurai Jack.

Singh, who declared he has little interest in comic book movies, told The Hollywood Reporter: "I love Samurai Jack. »

Kung Fu Panda 2 scribes to pen Disney's Wish List for Reese Witherspoon

22 November 2011 1:49 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Disney has found it’s writers for a new Reese Witherspoon comedy. THR reports that Kung Fu Panda 2’s Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger are set to write the comedy fantasy Wish List. The film is being produced by Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray of Mayhem Pictures.

Witherspoon became attached to star in the film initially planned as a vehicle for a male comedy star. The story centers on “a career-oriented adult whose perfectly tailored life is thrown for a loop when all the wishes she made as a child are suddenly granted.”

Aibel and Berger have worked on Kung Fu Panda and Monsters vs Aliens, as well as TV’s King of the Hill.They are currently hard at work writing Hasbro’s adaptation of Candlyland. I am »

Us TV ruined Life On Mars but it could do Trollied, Scott & Bailey and Friday Night Dinner some favours

18 November 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Cinemax's explosion-heavy co-production of Sky1's Strike Back shows that Americans do it better … sometimes

Greg Daniels, the one-time Simpsons producer who adapted The Office for America was recently hired to perform the same function for Channel 4's Friday Night Dinner. My initial reaction: there's no way that won't be a million times better than the original. That's the exact opposite of my usual reaction. Any time I hear about an American adaptation of a UK original, I automatically assume it's going to suck and that the Brits who handed over their creation in exchange for the network dollar will be left feeling violated and degraded. Just like the creators of Life On Mars, Cracker, Being Human, Teachers, Skins and Misfits (the remake hasn't even been written yet and I'm already condemning it). But I don't feel any patriotic outrage on behalf of Friday Night Dinner. If anything, I'm looking forward to a remake. »

Woody Woodpecker Movie Could Be Scripted By ‘King of the Hill’ Duo

17 November 2011 9:42 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Yet another famous old-school (animated) character is being prepared for a return to the big screen: Woody Woodpecker, the famous anthropomorphized cartoon fowl whose trademark cackle is a reminder of a bygone era in Hollywood animated entertainment (or the stuff of nightmares, depending on your personal view).

Illumination Entertainment is working on a new feature-length project that will star the Woodpecker character. It could be one of the company’s next completely CGI-animated efforts, following Despicable Me, next year’s adaptation of Dr. SeussThe Lorax, and the in-development Despicable Me 2.

Woody Woodpecker was concocted by storyboard artist Ben “Bugs” Hardaway and cartoonist Walter Lantz as being a screwball character, similar to early incarnations of Looney Tunes icons Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck - both of which were also partly Hardaway’s creations.

The Woodpecker character eventually transitioned from ...

'Woody Woodpecker' Could Be Laughing His Way Into Theaters

16 November 2011 11:59 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

THR reports that after sitting on the rights for over 25 years, Universal is crafting up a theatrical outing for 'Woody Woodpecker' through their animation studio, Illumination Entertainment. It's good timing for the always obnoxious bird to be revived for children. Despite becoming cringe inducing and painful for people old enough to remember them from when they were children, recent films such as 'The Smurfs' and 'Alvin and the Chipmunks' have been turning profits and spawning sequels. Even 'Yogi Bear' more than made up its budget.Perhaps the writing team that is being assembled of John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky says a little something about how the tone of this 'Woody Woodpecker' is going to be. The two have collaborated on the likes of the film 'Blades of Glory' as well as the television shows ''King of the Hill,' 'The Goode Family,' and 'Beavis and Butt-Head. »

Woody Woodpecker To Be Brought To The Big Screen By Illumination Entertainment

16 November 2011 11:06 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

They haven't been around long, but Illumination Entertainment is quickly establishing itself as one of the major players in the world of animated film. After establishing themselves with last summer's Despicable Me (which was met with a surprisingly positive critical response) the company put out the Russell Brand-starring Hop (which didn't really succeed on the same level). Currently in the works is an adaptation of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax and a sequel to Despicable Me, but they're not done yet. Now they're bringing back Woody Woodpecker. THR has learned that Illumination, which is a branch of Universal, is currently developing a feature film based on the feathered instigator. While things are still in the planning stages, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, whose previous work includes the 2007 Will Ferrell ice-skating comedy Blades of Glory, as well as multiple episodes of King of the Hill and The Goode Family, are »

Glenn Beck orders up cartoons for Gbtv

15 November 2011 1:10 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Glenn Beck has long prided himself as a comedian, and his critics have often lampooned him as a cartoon. So I suppose it makes perfect sense that Gbtv, his live streaming video network, is developing a new animated comedy series. Gbtv and Icebox, which boasts writers who’ve worked on shows including The Simpsons, South Park, and King of the Hill, are currently discussing various concepts. “Many of our writers welcome the opportunity to create shows the whole family can watch,” Tal Vigderson, Icebox’s managing director, said in a statement. “This venture lets us take a little break from shocking and offending our audience. »

Burt Reynolds to guest star on 'Archer'

31 October 2011 2:36 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Legendary actor Burt Reynolds is set to guest star on the animated program "Archer" when the series returns in early 2012.

Reynolds will play himself in the spy comedy. In the episode he will date Malory Archer (Jessica Walter), but Sterling (H. Jon Benjamin) is none to pleased about his mom's choice of boyfriends. But as fans of the show know, Malory has a bit of bad taste when it comes to men.

"Archer" creator Adam Reed says in a statement, "Archer constantly tries to imitate Burt and always raves about Burt's movies and all-around awesomeness. So to have Burt recording voice-overs for the show was just amazing."

In addition to his extensive work on the big screen, Reynolds has done work on TV animation as well. He recently guest-voiced on "American Dad!" and in 1997 lent his vocal chords to an episode of "King of the Hill."

The series is set »

HitFix Interview: Mike Judge talks about why 'Beavis and Butt-Head' are just the same

27 October 2011 10:12 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A lot has changed since "Beavis and Butt-head" ran on MTV from 1993 to 1997 and became MTV's highest rated show. Creator Mike Judge went on to create the Fox series "King of the Hill," as well as the movies "Office Space" and "Idiocracy." But now Judge has returned to MTV and the series, which attracted the ire of critics (and even the negative attention of Congress). I talked to Judge during the TCAs and the laid-back Texan looked fit and relaxed (he credited surfing) and seemed happy to be back at work on the show that once left him burnt out »
