Was Andrew Garfield Asked to Return for Marvel's 'Spider-Man'?

28 August 2015 6:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before Marvel and Sony Pictures finally decided to join forces for a new Spider-Man reboot, which has Tom Holland set to star as a much younger Spidey, the studio was still developing another sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with Andrew Garfield set to return as Peter Parker. The Marvel/Sony deal pleased a great deal of fans, since it allows for Spidey to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time, but some fans still wanted to see Andrew Garfield return as the beloved character. Andrew Garfield revealed in a recent interview with Uproxx that he wasn't asked to come back, although he wouldn't go into too many details. When asked if Marvel ever approached him about putting on the Spidey suit one more time, he had this to say.

"No. To be honest [pauses], all the ins and outs of what happened is a »

Borderlands Movie Incoming

28 August 2015 5:31 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

While video game adaptions rarely work, this doesn’t stop from Hollywood from trying, but the tide may turn with the Michael Fassbender donning the hood for next years Assassin’s Creed and a possible Tom Hardy starring Splinter Cell on the horizon. Now, video game fans have another bright light to look towards, with Lionsgate announcing plans to develop the chaotic, and absolutely hilarious, first person shooter Borderlands as a possible new franchise, with the father-son team of Avi Arad (Iron Man, Spider-Man) and Ari Arad on board as producers. For those of you not in the know, Borderlands is set on the backwater planet of Pandora, where several mega corporations have set up shop looking to uncover the vast alien vaults, and the untold power that resides within them, for their own gain. The series follows a rag tag group of rebels who resist these corporations plans for the planet, »

'Borderlands' Is The Next Video Game to Get a Movie Adaptation

28 August 2015 5:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Now that The Hunger Games is a few months away from ending, Lionsgate will soon find themselves in need of another big franchsie that already has a built in fanbase. They're hoping they've already got that with their in-development Power Rangers movie, but now they're hedging their franchise bets by going for the gamer market, as Variety is reporting the studio has struck a deal for the Borderlands franchise. Avi and Ari Arad, who produced all of the Spider-Man movies, are overseeing the project for the studio. They don't have any directors or writers officially attached at this point, but now that the news is out there they'll no doubt be getting plenty of calls from some top Hollywood talent. If done right - and there's a big If there - this could be a...

'Borderlands' Movie Happening with 'Spider-Man' Producers

28 August 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lionsgate, a premier next generation global content leader, is teaming with the publisher and creators of Borderlands, and renowned producers Avi Arad and Ari Arad to adapt Gearbox Software's critically-acclaimed blockbuster video game Borderlands into a tent-pole feature film, the parties announced today. Borderlands is an action role-playing first-person shooter video game created and developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K, a wholly owned label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc.

The award-winning Borderlands franchise has been lauded by critics and over the years has built a passionate global fan base, shipping more than 26 million copies around the world since its launch in 2009, including 8 million copies shipped during Take Two's fiscal year 2015 alone. Set in the frontier of a sci-fi universe, Borderlands is best known for Gearbox's blending of irreverent humor and characters, with a unique comic-book art style, and co-operative four-player genre-bending, loot-grabbing gameplay. It's a franchise that »

Lionsgate Plans A "Borderlands" Movie

28 August 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Lionsgate has begun development of a tentpole movie based on the "Borderlands" role-playing shooter video game series.

"Spider-Man" producers Avi and Ari Arad are behind this film adaptation of the games which are set on Pandora, a dusty planet abandoned by a mega-corporation prior to the game events. There are also reports of an ancient vault full of advanced alien weapons technology being hidden somewhere on the planet.

Launched in 2009, more than 26 million copies of the game have shipped worldwide. Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairs Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger say in a statement: "The 'Borderlands' games don't pull any punches, and we'll make the movie with the same in-your-face attitude that has made the series a blockbuster mega-franchise.”

Borderlands the game to become Borderlands the movie

28 August 2015 8:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Borderlands video game franchise is set to become the Borderlands film franchise after a deal between producers Avi and Ari Arad and studio Lionsgate.

Gearbox Software and Take-Two Interactive's Borderlands games have sold upwards of 26 million copies and have been critically acclaimed.

The Mad Max-like games are "role-playing shooters" that see players running-and-gunning around the planet of Pandora, fighting crazed cultists and hunting for loot.

As a combination of a western and a sci-fi, this won't be a cheap production, but with titles such as Spider-Man and X-Men in their previous production portfolio, the Arads should be fine.

Avi Arad is also currently producing two other big adaptations, one from another video game, Uncharted, another, Ghost in the Shell, from a Japanese manga.

The news comes a day after another game-to-film project - Assassin's Creed - showed its first image of Michael Fassbender in the lead role.

‘Borderlands’ Videogame Movie in Works at Lionsgate

28 August 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate is developing a tentpole movie based on the videogame “Borderlands,” with producers Avi and Ari Arad.

“Borderlands,” launched in 2009, is a role-playing first-person shooter videogame created and developed by Gearbox Software and published by Take-Two Interactive Software’s 2K label. More than 26 million copies of the game have been shipped worldwide, including 8 million during Take-Two’s 2015 fiscal year, which ended March 31.

The game is set on the frontier of a sci-fi universe — the planet of Pandora — which has been abandoned by a mega-corporation prior to the game events.

Avi Arad and his son Ari Arad have been involved in the creation of the film franchises for Iron Man, Spider Man, The Amazing Spider Man, X-Men, Ghost Rider and Blade.

Lionsgate made a major push last year into videogames when it named Nerdist Industries CEO Peter Levin as president of interactive ventures and games.

Max Landis details his rejected pitch for a Fantastic Four trilogy

25 August 2015 11:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the wake of Fantastic Four’s disasterous release, Josh Trank’s Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis released the first four pages of his own script for the reboot of Marvel’s First Family, which was ultimately rejected by 20th Century Fox. Well, now the writer has opened up to The Daily Beast about his vision for the movie, which would have been the first instalment of a trilogy.

“My Fantastic Four was an on-the-run movie. It begins with their origin, which is an illegal Branson-esque space launch where they want to go see this thing. They become the biggest celebrities in the world, except then they wreck and they get these horrible powers. The government is hunting them and they split up, and you really get into the dynamics of these people as they’re learning to control their powers. So the origin takes place in the first two minutes »

Where are the cast of Bring It On now? Here's what happened to Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku and the squad

24 August 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

15 years ago today, the Toros stepped out onto the football field and put some serious cheer back into the atmosphere. To steal a phrase from the film: Bring It On's the poo - so take a big whiff.

But what have Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku and the rest of the squad been cheering about since then? To mark the movie's birthday, we put down the pompoms and find out what they've been up to since.

Kirsten Dunst

A Hollywood star from the age of 12 thanks to her breakthrough role in Interview with the Vampire, Dunst's star was burning brightly when she led the Toros as Torrance Shipman. Two years later, she went on to land her biggest role as Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi's three Spider-man films.

In recent years, she's reinvented herself as a critical darling, winning Best Actress at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for Melancholia, »

Watch: Evil Is Always Waiting In New Trailer For ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ TV Series

24 August 2015 2:58 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It's crazy to think that Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead" series has hardly ever left the cultural consciousness and yet there hasn't been an "Evil Dead" film in 23 years. Sure, there was a humorless "Evil Dead" remake and reboot in 2013, but that was wasn't warmly received and basically lays dead in the dirt now. And it's amazing to think despite 23 years between films—and Raimi and star Bruce Campbell hoping and pining for a new sequel—that an appetite for these films still exist (though the video games where Campbell reprised the voice role surely didn't hurt). And while it's not a film, "Ash Vs. Evil Dead," an upcoming horror sitcom that will air on the Starz channel in October, should sate appetites.

Max Landis Reveals His Ideas For The Fantastic Four Trilogy

24 August 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Chronicle writer Max Landis knows how to create original concepts and bash out killer scripts. Whether his intended visions for the prolific amount of screenplays he’s penned over the years truly come into being when passed to a director, you can’t doubt his enthusiasm for the craft. Even when he’s not contracted by studios and producers, he’s often busy tapping out a sequel or reboot to a movie that he might not own the rights to — but has oodles of passion for. Super Mario Bros., Ghostbusters, Lethal Weapon 5 are just a small pool of examples.

The most high-profile? Fantastic Four. Following the film’s public denouncement by every critic worth their salt, he posted the opening pages of his spec script to Twitter. Naturally, it hewed closer to the comic book and people on the whole thought it showed enormous potential. While »

Max Landis Details More Of His Fantastic Four...Trilogy

24 August 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Instead of getting Max Landis' Fantastic Four plans 140-characters at a time via Twitter, The Daily Beast caught up with Max Landis for lunch.  Here's what the outspoken screenwriter shared about his plans for the Fantastic Four and Doctor Doom in particular.   "I had Doctor Doom as a good guy, one of Reed’s college friends, and my whole movie he’s trying to find and help them but it wasn’t clear if he was good or bad—until the finale of the movie when you realize his connection to Reed, and that they’re best friends. The audience who knows Doctor Doom thinks he’s going to turn bad, but the movie ends with him saving them. And in the sequel he’s probably good, too. You know, you Sam Raimi-Spider-Man it—at the end of the sequel he gets all fucked up and shows »

Comics on Film: Life After Hugh Jackman's Wolverine

21 August 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

It’s been said before and it’ll probably be said again: the current comic book movie craze may have had its seeds planted in 1998 by New Line Cinema’s Blade, but it was 2000’s X-Men that catapulted the genre to new heights of success and acceptance by moviegoers everywhere. X-Men was quickly followed by other successful, genre-defining films like Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man, 2003’s X2: X-Men United, 2004’s Hellboy and Spider-Man 2, and 2005’s Batman Begins. Through all of this – including reboots of the Spider-Man, Superman, Daredevil, Punisher, Hulk, and Fantastic Four franchises – one actor has stood as a guiding beacon...

Tom Holland Joins Lost City Of Z

20 August 2015 2:42 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros Pictures

Tom Holland’s been a very busy boy lately. A few months ago he landed the coveted role of Spider-Man, and over the past few weeks he has been shooting scenes for Captain America: Civil War in Atlanta and Germany. He’s not stopping there though, as he’s joined the cast of James Gray’s Lost City of Z. Presumably so he can cram in a few extra roles before the world forgets he ever did anything else, and just starts calling him Peter Parker.

Holland’s role in the film isn’t confirmed, but he’ll be joining Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller.

Lost City of Z is an adaptation of David Grann’s best-selling book, in which a conscripted soldier (Hunnam) attempts to rediscover a lost Amazonian city, one he believes he may have encountered on a past expedition.

93 movie remakes and reboots currently in the works

19 August 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...

Akira

One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

8 Huge Captain America: Civil War & Doctor Strange Reveals From D23

18 August 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel

Star Wars may have been the main event of Disney’s live-action panel at this year’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, but it was Marvel that kicked it off in style this past Saturday.

The studio were conspicuous by their absence at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but Kevin Feige brought more than enough to this Disney centric event to make up for that. Unfortunately, none of the footage or concept art shown was released online, and there are currently no plans for that to change. With hit after hit, Marvel clearly feel like they can take their time rolling out official material from these movies (which probably also explains why Spider-Man was nowhere to be seen in the footage shown.

Marvel has to know that we’re all chomping at the bit to see how he’ll look in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but kept the focus »

10 Villains Who Could Kickstart The Spider-Man Reboot

17 August 2015 9:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this year, we brought you a list of ten characters that we’d love to see appear in the Spider-Man re-reboot, comprised of a few friends, foes and females from Peter Parker’s comic life. Now, with the news that new Spidey star Tom Holland has reportedly already filmed his Captain America: Civil War cameo, we thought it was time to start pondering which of the character’s iconic villains could kick his latest screen adventure off on the right foot!

Co-producer Kevin Feige was quoted as saying he’d like to see new, unseen-on-screen villains used when the new reboot arrives in 2017. While this rules out more than a handful of the Wall Crawler’s foes, he’s certainly not short in this department. Fortunately, there are still a plethora of interesting and dangerous baddies that Marvel’s favourite son could face off against when the studio gets their hands on him. »
