‘MacGyver’ Movie Reboot in the Works at Lionsgate

5 February 2016 7:10 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate is developing a movie reboot of the action-adventure TV series “MacGyver,” with CBS planning a remake of the show.

Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer made the disclosure of both projects on Friday during Lionsgate’s earnings call with analysts. He said the movie would be produced by series creator Lee David Zlotoff and Neal Moritz, producer of “The Fast and the Furious” franchise, but gave no further details.

MacGyver” ran for seven seasons on ABC in the U.S. from 1985 to 1992 and starred Richard Dean Anderson as secret agent Angus MacGyver, who worked for the Department of External Services.  The series is best remembered for MacGyver’s ability to solve complex problems with ordinary objects and his Swiss Army knife.

Channing Tatum Doesn’t Remember How He Blew His Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift Audition, Which Makes You Suspect He Forgot to Wear a Tank Top

4 February 2016 6:38 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As a man of many talents and even more arm muscles, Channing Tatum seems like a natural fit for the Fast and the Furious films. It’s no surprise, then, that he went in for a role in The Fast and the Furious 3: Tokyo Drift. The mind boggles, however, when you try to imagine how he could have biffed the audition so hard, he himself had to pull the plug. Did Channing forget to mean mug? Did he stare resolutely into the middle distance instead of the far distance? Dear God, can the man not drive? »

Ericson Core interview: Point Break, the importance of a Dp

Director Ericson Core talks us through how he want about shooting his remake of Point Break...

As a cinematographer, Ericson Core filmed movies like The Fast and the Furious, Payback, and Daredevil. When he became a director on the true sports story Invincible, Core remained his own director of photography. So for his second film, Point Break, he was still the Dp. Point Break filmed in 11 different countries with athletes performing extreme stunts in the most extreme locations. Luke Bracy plays Johnny Utah, an FBI agent going undercover to root out an eco-terrorist. Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez) is still the leader of a group of athletes, but with more on their mind than robbing banks.

Here's how our chat with him about the film went....

Thank you for filming everything clearly so we could see all the stunts. As a Dp yourself, what are your thoughts on the »

Vin Diesel Announces 'Fast and Furious' Movies Going All the Way to 2021

3 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

There aren't very many movie franchises that can confidently lay claim to release dates that are years and years away. Star Wars gets to do it. Superhero movies get to do it. That's basically it. Every other franchise, whether it's Toy Story or The Hangover, has to take sequels one movie at a time. Every other franchise except for The Fast and the Furious, that is. The series that keeps on defying all expectations already had an April 14, 2017 release date for Fast 8, but now star and producer Vin Diesel has gone ahead and announced dates for Fast 9 on April 19, 2019 and Fast 10 on April 2, 2021. That is no doubt bold. Heck, even Star Wars hasn't officially announced movies as far reaching as 2021. As of right now the only one of these that has any concrete...

‘Ice Age: Collision Course’ Trailer: The Apocalypse Is Coming, and It’s All Scrat’s Fault

3 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Just as no one could have predicted back in 2001 that The Fast and the Furious would be the start of a box office juggernaut spanning ten installments across two decades, it seems doubtful anyone in 2002 would’ve guessed Ice Age would spawn a major movie franchise. And yet here we are in 2016, eyeballing a new […]

Here Are the Release Dates for 'Fast and Furious' 8, 9, and 10

3 February 2016 6:22 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Quick, break out your 2021 calendar and circle "April 2," 'cause that day already has a need for "Fast & Furious" speed.

Vin Diesel's schedule is now jam-packed with sequels, including his next three appearances as Dominic Toretto. Back in September, Vin -- who is a producer of the "saga," as well as a star -- announced that a trilogy would end the "Fast & Furious" franchise. "Fast 8" was already announced for April 14, 2017, but Vin just shared a new poster with the release dates for the ninth and 10th films as well:

Let that sink in: Two decades and 10 films. Did you ever imagine it would be this way back in 2001, when Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster, first introduced these characters in "The Fast and the Furious"?

Of course, Paul Walker is now gone, his »

Five things that made the original Point Break great

3 February 2016 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

What Point Break Gave Us

Arriving in cinemas on Friday is Point Break, a remake of the 1991 cult classic of the same name. The film stars Luke Bracey and Édgar Ramírez as Johnny Utah and Bodhi 2.0, and will once more see Agent Utah hunt down a group of criminals with a surfing background. This time however, the activity doesn’t stop at just surfing; this version has Bodhi and his group of followers attempting to complete the Osaki Eight, a series of ordeals that honour the forces of nature.

It twists things up from the source material and director Ericson Core was adamant when we saw him late last year that this wasn’t a remake, but rather a spiritual re-visioning. He voiced that it would feel spiritually the same, but other than the names of the characters and the use of ex-Presidents as disguises, this was a new animal entirely. »

Universal Pictures and Vin Diesel have confirmed there will be a ninth and a 10th film in its “Fast and Furious” franchise with release dates in 2019 and 2021.

Fast and Furious 8 Will Not Include Paul Walker's Brother

27 January 2016 5:55 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After the tragic death of the beloved Paul Walker, during a break in shooting on Furious 7, the production shut down for several months for the filmmakers to figure out how to wrap up his story. The actor had shot roughly half of his scenes at the time of his death in November 2013, and when production resumed, the filmmakers brought on the late actor's brothers Cody Walker and Caleb Walker to stand in for him in certain scenes. Earlier today, a rumor surfaced that Cody Walker will return in Fast & Furious 8, except this time he will be playing his own new character. However, Polygon reached out to Universal Pictures, and the studio debunked the rumor, stating, "There's no truth behind it."

The rumor surfaced when Cody Walker's name surfaced on the IMDb page for Fast & Furious 8, although it was later removed. Back in October, Universal vice chairman Ron Meyer »

Watch Vin Diesel Play with Street Sharks Toys Back in 1994

27 January 2016 2:58 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In just a few short months, Fast & Furious 8 will start production in New York City and Atlanta, with Vin Diesel reprising his now-iconic role as Dominic Torreto. Like almost every actor, Vin Diesel wasn't born a star, and he had to work his way through the ranks to achieve the fame he has earned today. Of course, along the way, he most certainly had to take on a number of odd jobs to pay the bills, and today a video surfaced from 1994 that showcases the now-famous actor as an incredibly enthusiastic salesman for Street Sharks.

The video was taken from the 1994 Toy Fair, showcasing the actor reveling in his products, showcasing the features of these action figures. At one point in the video, he even puts on a shark hand puppet, showcasing the "Rocky Balboa action" of this toy. Thankfully for the actor, he wouldn't have to sell toys for too long, »

Watch Vin Diesel Enthusiastically Sell ‘Street Sharks’ at a 1994 Toy Fair (Video)

27 January 2016 7:17 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Seven years before “The Fast and the Furious,” Vin Diesel was already doing his Dominic Toretto thing — just hyping shark toys instead of boosting cars. On Wednesday, for reasons only the Internet understands, footage of the actor pimping action figures at a 1994 toy fair began to trend. A young Diesel, complete with hair, a shark-tooth necklace and an earring, really got into selling “Street Shark” playthings. First up was whale shark Boomer, who’s “got the biggest mouth of them all,” a shirtless, leather-vested Diesel hypes to the camera.

Red-band trailer for Key & Peele’s new film ‘Keanu’

21 January 2016 11:31 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The oddly-monikered upcoming comedy Keanu stars Jordan Peele (Wet Hot American Summer, Bob’s Burgers), Keegan-Michael Key (Vacation, BoJack Horseman), Tiffany Haddish (New Girl, Meet The Spartans), Method Man (The Fast And The Furious, 8 Mile), Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton, Contraband), Luis Guzman (Boogie Nights, Anger Management), Nia Long (Are We There Yet?, Big Momma’s House) and Will Forte (American Dad, 30 Rock) and directed by Key & Peele director Peter Atencio.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, a.k.a. the hugely popular U.S. comedy duo Key & Peele, star as Clarence and Rell, two cousins who live in the city but are far from streetwise. When Rell’s beloved kitten, Keanu, is catnapped, the hopelessly straight-laced pair must impersonate ruthless killers in order to infiltrate a street gang and retrieve the purloined feline. But the incredibly adorable kitten becomes so coveted that the fight over his custody creates a gang war, »

'The Fast and the Furious' Director Is Making a Movie About Hackers Fighting a Hurricane

20 January 2016 4:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Rob Cohen directed The Fast and the Furious, kickstarting what would eventually become a billion-dollar global powerhouse. His career, however, didn't gain the same fury as the franchise he started. He's remained a go-to director for modestly budgeted action movies, delivering the likes of xXx, Stealth and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor-- all movies that are fine to watch on cable on a lazy afternoon. His next movie has a premise that's so absurd, though, it may be worth intentionally watching. It's called Category 5, but this isn't your ordinary hurricane disaster movie. It's about a gang of hackers who use the storm of the century as a cover to try and steal $102 million from a U.S. Mint facility that's at the heart of the hurricane...
