John Travolta's classic Urban Cowboy is the latest movie being remade for television

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

John Travolta's 1980 romantic drama Urban Cowboy is the latest movie being remade into a television series.

Fox is teaming up with the Footloose remake co-writer and director Craig Brewer to turn the hit movie into an ongoing drama.

The network has given Brewer a script commitment to adapt the love story of young Texans set against the rodeo scene, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The original Urban Cowboy producer Robert Evans will return to oversee this new project.

Fox has already ordered a television remake of the hit Steven Spielberg science fiction movie Minority Report.

Film remakes are more popular than ever in the current television landscape, with CBS's Limitless and Rush Hour and ABC's Uncle Buck all debuting next season. »

‘Tomorrowland’ gets Shazam’ed

15 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Despite a mixed reception and a less-than-futuristic box office performance so far, Disney’s Tomorrowland is leading the way in mobile applications.

Perhaps unusually for a movie with a retro sci-fi theme, the print campaign for George Clooney‘s gadget-fest is the first to utilize Shazam’s new visual recognition software, which operates through your camera phone. It’s been in operation as an audio-based system up to now.

Aiming your lens at the poster allows the device to access interactive Tomorrowland content and advertising-based material in what sounds like a pocket-sized riff on Minority Report. Brad Bird‘s action adventure has been branded  “Shazamable” as a result!

The pioneering company (based in the UK) have also struck a deal with the music arm of Uncle Walt’s digital empire. Other corporate entities are involved, with perhaps the most exciting being Warner Bros and their forthcoming Batman: Arkham Knight game release. »

Fox Mounting Urban Cowboy Remake

28 May 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox already has Minority Report slotted for the fall, but the network is far from done mining respected films for TV continuations. Today brings news that Fox is partnering with Paramount TV to remake 1980 flick Urban Cowboy, which starred John Travolta and Debra Winger.

Craig Brewer (Footloose, Hustle & Flow) will write, direct and exec-produce the new take, which is a modern reimagining of the romance between Sissy and Bud, two star-crossed lovers challenged by the difficulties of life in the oil refinery business, on the rodeo circuit and under the brutal Texas sun. Music will again play a key role in the series.

Fox has agreed for Brewer to write a script. If the network likes what it sees, it can begin casting for a pilot with hopes to get Urban Cowboy onto the air either midseason or in the fall of 2016.

Robert Evans, who produced the original movie, is »

28 May 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox is saddling up with writer-director Craig Brewer and Paramount TV for a series adaptation of the 1980 John Travolta-Debra Winger movie “Urban Cowboy.”

Chris Levinson (“Tyrant”) is set to serve as showrunner and exec producer. Robert Evans, who produced the original Paramount film, and HBO alum Sue Naegle are also on board as exec producers. Robert Evans Co.’s James Sikura will co-exec produce.

Like the movie, the TV adaptation of “Urban Cowboy” will follow the star-crossed relationship of Sissy »

"Unbreakable 2" As A TV Series? It's Possible

28 May 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though his big screen career burned out quickly, M. Night Shyamalan has found a new home on TV with his new Fox series "Wayward Pines" scoring decent ratings and reviews.

Out doing press for the show, many questions still deal with his past efforts from the widely reviled "The Last Airbender," to some of his more early acclaimed work such as the superhero origin story "Unbreakable".

Now fifteen years old, there's been talk of a sequel to the latter for many years, talk that has never panned out as such. Speaking with IGN, Shyamalan has revealed that one potential idea is that a follow-up could go the small screen route:

"Could you do a six-episode Unbreakable series on Netflix or HBO? Yeah! That's cool. I even had an idea of doing a story that goes in one form, and a second part that's in another form, and a third one's in a different form. »

DVR Gridlock 2015-16: Monday Nights

25 May 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[As in years past, this week, I'm going to be glancing, night-by-night, at how the primetime schedules have changed after the network announcements at upfronts. I'll be looking at how the various changes will impact the ratings races on each night, as well as my own DVRing habits. Readers can chime in on how their own DVRs will be impacted. And yes, this brief series assumes that anybody still watches TV on their TVs. I'm old-fashioned. I'm also probably gonna ignore that I have a fancy new six-tuner DVR that means that I really don't have to make choices anymore. This will assume that I make choices for my own sanity.] Monday Nights 8:00 p.m. ABC: "Dancing with the Stars" CBS: "Big Bang Theory"/"Life in Pieces" (through October) and "Supergirl" The CW: "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" Fox: "Gotham" NBC: "The Voice" 9:00 p.m. ABC:  "Dancing with the Stars" CBS: "Scorpion" The CW: "Jane the Virgin" Fox: "Minority Report" NBC: "The Voice" 10:00 p.m. ABC: "Castle" CBS: "NCIS: Los Angeles" NBC: "Blindspot" What's Changed: The night's biggest change is conceptual, since you may not be a regular "2 Broke Girls" or "Mike & Molly" viewer, but this is the first time since 1949 that CBS has had a comedy-free Monday. Or at least it will be once Thursday Night Football ends and CBS isn't airing "Big Bang Theory" and "Life in Pieces" here. Will "Supergirl" prove to be a family friendly blockbuster return to the comic book world for CBS? We'll see. After "State of Affairs" failed post-"The Voice" and "Night Shift »

Strange Magic movie review: bad spell

24 May 2015 11:36 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Apparently this was inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream, but it has about as much in common with that as Burger King does with Macbeth. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Strange Magic is the first animated feature George Lucas has had a hand in since 1988’s The Land Before Time, and he should have left well enough alone.

Lucas gets a story credit and served as executive producer, but this has the whiff of a vanity project for cowriter and director Gary Rydstrom, making his feature debut. Yes, legendary sound designer Gary Rydstrom, who’s won seven Oscars in that field and has created some of the most memorable movie noises ever for films including Terminator 2, Jurassic Park, and Minority Report, but who, the evidence of this movie suggests, has no business writing and directing a movie. »
