"Panda" Director Tackles Animated "Noah's Ark"

20 August 2014 12:27 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

John Stevenson ("Kung Fu Panda") has been hired to direct the CG animated feature "Noah's Ark" for Unified Pictures.

Philip Lazebnik ("The Prince Of Egypt," "Mulan") pens the script which tells the Biblical tale from the point of view of the animals. In particular it focuses on an outcast aardvark who becomes the reluctant leader of a ragtag group of misfit animals that need to be led to the mighty ark before the impending flood.

Along their journey, they band together to conquer unforeseen obstacles, and the aardvark discovers inner strength and ingenuity within him.

Cecil Kramer and Stevenson will executive produce the project which is in pre-production ahead of a 2016 release.

'Kung Fu Panda' Director Takes on 'Noah's Ark' Animated Comedy

20 August 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Unified Pictures announced today that Academy Award-nominated director John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda) will direct the company's first CG-animated feature inspired by Noah's Ark, which is slated for completion in 2016.

The animated comedy adventure is inspired by the classic tale, but tells the story from the point of view of the animals. The story follows an outcast aardvark by the name of Gilbert, who becomes the reluctant leader of a ragtag group of misfit animals that need to be led to the mighty ark before the impending flood. Along their journey, they band together to conquer unforeseen obstacles, and ultimately, Gilbert discovers within himself the inner strength and ingenuity to prove that in a world of "twos," he was truly destined to be "the one."

In memoriam: James Shigeta

29 July 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We pay tribute to the actor James Shigeta, famous for his roles in Flower Drum Song, Die Hard, and a legion other turns on stage and TV.

For a generation of moviegoers, James Shigeta will be immediately recognisable as Joseph Takagi, the Nakatomi Corporation boss who's ruthlessly despatched by Alan Rickman's sneering villain in the 1988 hit, Die Hard. But there was so much more to Shigeta than John McTiernan's action classic - that appearance was, in fact, but one of many in a long and fruitful career on stage, television and the silver screen.

Born in Hawaii in 1933, Shigeta embarked on a singing career after winning first place in a TV show called Original Amateur Hour. His subsequent success was such that a lengthy run of appearances in Tokyo musicals left him with the nickname, The Frank Sinatra of Japan.

Returning to America in the late 1950s, Shigeta »

Bonnie Arnold interview: Dragon 2, Dances With Wolves, DreamWorks

8 July 2014 8:46 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Producer Bonnie Arnold on the challenges of the How To Train Your Dragon movies, and looking back at Kevin Costner's Dances With Wolves.

Interview

Bonnie Arnold has had some career. As the latest film she's produced, How To Train Your Dragon 2, arrives in UK cinemas, she chatted to us about the movie, about the big problems making the first, and her earlier days helping to bring Dances With Wolves to light. And she didn't touch a drop of her tea while telling us all of this...

Digging into your background, from what I can tell you started as a writer? Can you fill in some of the blanks there?

Well, it wasn't really a writer as such. I studied journalism, but I actually started in publicity. I did unit publicity writing, so that's how I started really. Really it was in film, film production stuff. But I was writing press releases, »

Father of the Bride stars then & now: From Steve Martin to Kieran Culkin

16 June 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's currently being reported that Steve Martin will be reprising his role as cynical businessman George Banks in Father of the Bride 3.

Martin is tipped to return alongside Diane Keaton as wife Nina Banks in the comedy, which will see the couple's son Matty revealing his plans to marry the son of a Us Navy Seal.

1991's Father of the Bride was based on the 1950 movie of the same, while 1995's sequel was loosely based on 1951's Father's Little Dividend.

As we anticipate a potential Part III, catch up on the major stars' exploits since - and compare how they looked then and now:

Steve Martin

Steve Martin - already an established Hollywood name before Father of the Bride - plays hapless patriarch George Banks, who suffers a series of ridiculous misfortunes (and a mild breakdown - the too-plentiful pack of hotdogs springs to mind) after his daughter announces that she's getting married. »

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Star Ming-Na Wen Joins Thriller '6 Miranda Drive'

6 May 2014 6:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Ming-Na Wen has signed on for an unspecified role in 6 Miranda Drive alongside Kevin Bacon and Radha Mitchell.

The project has been in development since 2011, as a part of Lionsgate's micro-budget slate, but the thriller picked up steam when Kevin Bacon and Radha Mitchell signed on to star back in February. Universal Pictures is now set to distribute the thriller, under its first-look deal with producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions.

The story centers on a family who become terrorized by a supernatural entity they unwittingly bring home with them from their Grand Canyon vacation, which feeds off their fears as it threatens to tear them apart from within.

Greg Mclean (Wolf Creek, Wolf Creek 2) is directing from his own original screenplay, with Jason Blum, Matthew Kaplan and Bianca Martino producing. No production schedule was given.

Jamie Chung and Maya Rudolph Join Marvel's Big Hero 6

29 April 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It looks like Marvel and Disney Animation have cast Jamie Chung and Maya Rudolph to voice a couple of the characters in their upcoming animated feature film Big Hero 6. Chung has perviously starred in films such as Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch and the upcoming film Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and Rudolph has been in films such as Grown Ups and Bridesmaids.

The actresses NBC bio lists Big Hero 6 as one of her credits. This makes her the second confirmed cast member. The first was comedian Tj Miller. Chung is voicing Go Go Tomago, a hotheaded bike messenger who can turn herself into a ball of energy. There's not word on who  Rudolph is playing, but I imagine it will be be the character Honey Lemon. The character is described as "a Japanese superhero and member of the Big Hero 6, who has a power »

Tonight on Dancing With the Stars, Donnie Osmond’s purple socks return to the ballroom as tonight’s guest judge. The Season 9 celebrity champ is part of tonight’s Disney Night, and if you recall, Donny has a Disney connection — he sang “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You,” in Mulan. Unlike last week, where partnerships for “The Switch Up” were a well-guarded secret, this week, the dances and song choices have been revealed. Also revealed was that Disney Animation will be used throughout tonight’s dances.  This will either go very well, or very, very poorly. Something that I hope doesn’t … Continue reading →

It’s Mousterpiece Cinema’s 138th episode spectacular! Get ready for guest stars galore, clips, and surprises! …Ok, fine, we’re not going to ape the style of that great clip show from The Simpsons, but it is our 138th episode anyway. This week, Josh and Gabe take a trip back in time to dynastic China to discuss one of the entries in the Disney Renaissance, Mulan. They brought back past guest Dan Schindel of Film School Rejects, Nonfics, and Movie Mezzanine to debate the important issues such as: what the hell is Harvey Fierstein doing in this movie about Asian culture? (Quick note: there are a couple of earmuff-worthy moments here, if the little ones are listening.) Will this movie make men out of the trio of hosts? Do they see their reflection staring back at them? Listen to the show to find out!

Marvel's Animated Film Big Hero Six Casts T.J. Miller as Fred

28 March 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

One of my most anticipated animated movies to come from Disney is Marvel's Big Hero Six. The movie looks like it's going to be awesome, and it has all the makings of a big hit. Actor and comedian T.J. Miller (Cloverfield, How to Train Your Dragon, She's Out of My League) has confirmed that he will be the voice of Fred in the film. Fred is a comic book fanboy and aspiring filmmaker in the story. 

The movie is being directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Mulan, The Emperor’s New Groove). Here's a previously released synopsis:

Big Hero 6” features brilliant robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who finds himself in the grips of a criminal plot that threatens to destroy the fast-paced, high-tech city of San Fransokyo. With the help of his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—Hiro joins forces with a reluctant team of »

20 Alternate Disney Characters You Never Got To See

3 March 2014 2:40 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney

There’s nary a person alive in the Western world that isn’t utterly infatuated with at least one of Disney’s animated classics, from 1937′s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, all the way up to the recently released Frozen. But in many cases, what lies closer to the heart is not the events of the movies themselves, but their characters.

The hero, the heroine, the love interest, the helper, the villain, the talking wardrobe; yes, Disney has had them all, and all numerous times over (well, except for the talking wardrobe; thankfully, that was a one-off). But what most of us will probably disregard is that these dynamic, entertaining, life-rendering characters are not fully conceived overnight. Rather, they are meticulously developed over a course of many months, maybe even years, and as changes are made in the narrative or tone of the overall movie, these characters must also be altered accordingly. »

‘The Emperor’s New Groove’ a humorous defiance of time and space

19 February 2014 5:34 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Emperor’s New Groove

Written by David Reynolds, Mark Dindal, and Chris Williams

Directed by Mark Dindal

USA, 2000

With Disney leading its 1990s renaissance with self-serious tales accounting Greek (Hercules), Native American (Pocahontas), and Chinese (Mulan) empires, it may seem like a slight against the Disney-fication of the South American pre-Inca empire to present a through-and-through comedy. Indeed, The Emperor’s New Groove was fully prepared to be another historical drama firmly planted in the Disney canon under the title of Kingdom of the Sun, but thanks to economic troubles (Read as: really weird circumstances best covered in the documentary The Sweatbox. Look to Josh’s piece and the Mousterpiece Cinema podcast for further reading and listening.) its fate was left to the comedic stylings of Mark Dindal. It’s the sort of destiny that may have lead New Groove to the realm of films like its predecessor in Disney-proper, »
