‘This Is Where I Leave You’ Adaptation Trades Sideways for Shawn Levy

6 November 2012 2:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Director Adam Shankman has helmed A Walk to Remember, Bringing Down the House, The Pacifier, Cheaper By the Dozen 2, Hairspray, Bedtime Stories, and Rock of Ages. This is not a good resume (save for Hairspray, which is certainly passable as a fun revamp of the ’80s John Waters classic, at least in terms of sudsing it up for a new audience). The attachment of Shankman to a project does nothing for me (particularly after recently watching Rock of Ages after months of putting it off, which firmly established that production as a strong contender for Worst Film of the Year, at least in my mind), and yet, similarly, neither does the attachment of Shawn Levy (to be fair, Levy’s resume includes Just Married, Night at the Museum, Date Night, and Real Steel). So how funny then that a long-gestating project that once belonged to Shankman is now in Levy’s hands. Cue »

Everyone's favorite tear-jerking author is heading to TV.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nicholas Sparks and his literary agent Theresa Park will act as executive producers for TNT's "Bend In The Road," ABC Family's "The Falls" and Lifetime's "Deliverance Creek."

"Bend In The Road" centers on a sheriff managing life in a coastal Georgia town, while "The Falls" is a modern-day "Romeo And Juliet" tale.

Meanwhile, Lifetime's "Deliverance Creek" will follow a woman as she attempts to protect her family after the civil war.

Sparks has seen several successful novel adaptations in film form including "The Notebook," "A Walk To Remember," "Dear John," "The Last Song" and more.

While Sparks told THR that writing novels was his first priority, he's excited to explore the TV world. “It’s a chance to venture into stories I don’t always write about,” he said.

First Trailer For ‘Safe Haven’ Latest Nicholas Sparks Adaptation

24 October 2012 5:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’ve only has the pleasure of viewing one adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel, and that was 2002′s A Walk To Remember. He’s become a sure thing in terms of Hollywood with films based on his books including The Notebook, The Lucky One, and Dear John. His stories usually centre around a troubled romance and somebody dying. Based on the trailers alone, all films based on his work are filled with corny, forced dialogue, and the kind of sentimental pap that induces fits of vomiting. Safe Haven looks no different as we see a young woman on the run from a troubled past end up in a small town. There’s a widower she falls for, but doesn’t feel as though she can get involved. Master adapter of novels, Lasse Halstrom, is in the director’s chair. He is responsible for bringing books such as Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, »

'Nikita' Star On Season 3, Shane West & Knowing 'Himym' Secret

19 October 2012 1:54 PM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Known for her portrayal of the tough-as-nails Alex on The CW's "Nikita" (returns Fri., Oct. 19 at 9 p.m. Et on The CW), Lyndsy Fonseca also has a number of other projects under her belt.

In addition to appearing on "Big Love" and "Desperate Housewives," Fonseca plays Ted's (Josh Radnor) daughter alongside "Wizards Of Waverly Place" actor David Henrie in the opening segment of "How I Met Your Mother."

Fonseca spoke to HuffPost TV via phone to discuss the upcoming season of "Nikita," her love of co-star Shane West, and the best kept secret on TV: Who her mom is on "How I Met Your Mother."

What can you tell me about the upcoming season of "Nikita"?

It starts off in a different place, so right now all of the characters that were considered rogue agents are in control positions. Off camera we call them the "super friends" ... it's like our nickname for them. »

"Glee" Recap (4.04): Nobody Said It Was Easy

5 October 2012 5:19 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Before "The Break-Up" aired, critics and Glee creatives said it was the best episode the show has ever done, and while I'm not sure that's true, it was certainly a showcase of the thing Glee does best. I'm not talking about the music or the acting or the gay PSAs. I'm talking about the way Glee balls up its fist and says, "I'm going to punch you in the feelings." And you go, "Yeah, Ok, TV show." Because you're gay, right? This ain't your first rodeo. Gay cowboy beaten to death with a crowbar? You've seen it. Beloved lesbian witch shot in the chest? You've seen it. Gay girls turning straight and finding true love, straight guys coming out and getting kicked off their shows, alien attacks, sexless "love scenes," lost limbs, deep closets, double standards, a rainstorm of bullets on a gay wedding day. You've seen it all. But »

Top 20 Teen Movies Of All Time

12 September 2012 11:28 AM, PDT | Filmology | See recent Filmology news »

Some may not like this list in its entirety, but I'd hope you agree that all of these films should have made it onto a top teen movie list at one point or another. With a variation from John Hughes to more current films like The Notebook and Can't Hardly Wait, all of these are a must-see. Blame it on the fact that I grew up with these films, but features like Mean Girls and A Walk to Remember made the ranking too.

And before I forget, don't get too harsh when you check out what came in first. A teen film about high school kids stuck in detention on a Saturday is of course an all-time win, but at the end of the day a teen film is best when there's some type of love story. And when the film just so happens to create the best young male character of all time too. »

Review: Now Is Good

Now Is Good

Stars: Dakota Fanning, Jeremy Irvine, Paddy Considine, Olivia Williams, Kaya Scodelario | Written and Directed by Ol Parker

I sometimes wonder whether there are any stories out there we haven’t heard or seen already, because everything nowadays seems to be a book adaptation or a retelling of a different story. Now Is Good just happens to be both of those things. It has been adapted by writer/director Ol Parker from the book Before I Die, the plot of which is somewhat similar to films like Love Story and A Walk To Remember.

17 year old Tessa (Dakota Fanning) has leukaemia, and has recently decided to stop treatment, and just live the life she has left to its fullest. To do so, she makes a list of all the things she wants to do before she dies, such as take drugs, break the law, and have sex. However »

2 Reasons Macaulay And Kieran Culkin Are Doing Something Right

24 July 2012 12:21 PM, PDT | Celebsology | See recent Celebsology news »

Mila Kunis and Emma Stone. Is there anything left to say? Macauley and Kieran both landed themselves the two biggest actresses in the business right before they really made a splash in the headlines. Weird, right? When thinking about the Culkin brothers all that really comes to mind is Home Alone. "Kevin, you're such a disease!" and Kieran wetting the bed and getting his nose squished by the chair because milk spilled everywhere. The two may not be a Ryan Gosling when it comes to looks, but they clearly have something going on if they were able to get with these two favorites.

After a brief marriage to actress Rachel Miner in 1998, Macauley moved on to Mila Kunis in May 2002. The two dated during the time people still thought of her as Jackie from That 70s Show until calling it quits in January 2011. The relationship lasted almost a decade. Ten years. »

Ryan Adams and Mandy Moore Will Make an Album

15 July 2012 9:12 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Our modern era's greatest married musical duo, Beyoncé and Jay-z Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams, are now collaborating on Moore's new record. The two were wed in 2009, the same year Moore's last release, Amanda Leigh, hit stores. Moore says she and her generally tender, sometimes super-metal singer-songwriter husband have "been writing a little bit together" and that Adams "has a studio, so I definitely want to make my record there." She also says he — aww — inspires her: "There's tremendous influence right now around the house — from the music I've been introduced to, and being very happy and in a healthy, happy relationship. I think that still garners a lot of material to write about." But is she still getting her own ABC comedy? We can only rewatch A Walk to Remember so many times. »

Julianne Hough Commits to a New Hair Color For Nicholas Sparks

20 June 2012 11:25 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Julianne Hough reported to the set of Safe Haven in Wilmington, Nc, today. She stepped out in a bold blue dress, though all eyes were on her noticeably darker hair color. Julianne was a platinum blond in Rock of Ages, but this time around she's trying out an auburn hue for her latest role. The film, based on Nicholas Sparks's best-selling novel, pairs Julianne on the big screen with Josh Duhamel. According to Julianne, she's been a longtime fan of Sparks's work and has a soft spot in her heart for A Walk to Remember. Julianne recently told us she'll be shooting on location for most of the Summer, so that won't leave much time to visit boyfriend Ryan Seacrest while he's covering the Summer Olympics in London.

Mandy Moore: I felt uncomfortable in my skin

14 June 2012 8:01 PM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Mandy Moore used to be uncomfortable in her own skin. The 'A Walk To Remember' star spoke about how grateful she is to have had parents who reminded her she was beautiful as an adolescent. She said: 'Growing up I'm 5'10 and I sort of went through that awkward stage as a kid and was incredibly uncomfortable in my skin and felt very awkward about my height. 'My mum who is 5'2 would always impress upon me how I should stand tall with my shoulders back and be proud of my height. It was something she really envied but I guess it was a reminder of the grass is always greener. I felt very lucky to have that kind of »

Rock of Ages (review)

11 June 2012 3:11 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

If there’s one thing that rock ’n’ roll has understood from the beginning -- to the consternation of pearl-clutching panty-sniffers everywhere -- it’s that selling sex to horny girls and women is a license to print money. From Elvis to the Beatles to Mick Jagger to Duran Duran to George Michael to -- *shudder* -- Justin Bieber, the gyrating and the howling and the sweaty bods have never been aimed at you, dudes. Sorry. It’s honestly astonishing that Hollywood hasn’t figured this out and appropriated some of rock’s hormonal mojo, what with its religious devotion to making a buck, or a billion -- cuz, you know, Hollywood has been ignoring the desire of half the human race to get her rocks off, and what sort of business sense does that make? Which is what makes it so amazing to see how female-gazey Rock of Ages is. »
