16 September 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »


Scans of TV Guide's Fall film preview edition over at Spoiler TV include a couple of new shots from NBC's upcoming "Constantine" series.

Lock In

Legendary TV has acquired the screen rights and are planning to adapt John Scalzi's just released novel "Lock In" into a pilot for a potential series. The story revolves around a highly contagious virus that causes five million Americans to succumb to locked-in syndrome - they are paralyzed but fully aware.

A quarter of a century later, the immobile are able to borrow the bodies of 'integrators.' After one of the paralyzed is murdered, the story follows two FBI agents who are called in to investigate a case that spirals into something far larger. [Source: Variety]

'Problem Child' TV Show Happening with 'Hangover 2' Writer

16 September 2014 2:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Today's 90s nostalgia story finds the hit comedy Problem Child being adapted for TV by Scot Armstrong, the writer behind The Hangover Part II and Old School.

NBC is developing Problem Child as a single-camera sitcom. The comedy will be based on the original Problem Child released in 1990, starring John Ritter, Jack Warden, Amy Yasbeck, Michael Richards and Michael Oliver as the title character. Originally envisioned as an R rated romp, the final film was rated PG and took a more family friendly stance on the story of an adopted 7 year-old child, compared to Damien from The Omen, who can't keep himself out of trouble. The first film was a big hit, grossing $72 million on a $10 million budget.

Problem Child was followed by the 1991 sequel Problem Child 2 and continued on in the 1995 sequel Problem Child 3. There was also a short lived animated TV series that launched in 1993.

10 Hilarious Actors Who Dared To Bare for the Good of a Joke

Nudity on-screen is no new thing, obviously. Way back in 1934, Tarzan and His Mate engaged in a very lusty, full-on naked swim, which shocked Depression era audiences everywhere. But that’s the thing, nudity in movies is usually about sex. Not so when comedic actors do it. They use their un-yoga’d, un-tanned, non-waxed naked bodies as a tool for being funnier. Take Jason Segel in Finding Sarah Marshall. As his girlfriend dumped him, he stood a thousand percent nude — and limp – in his apartment (for what felt like hours), and we howled. When Frank the Tank (Will Ferrell) went streaking in Old School, his exposed full moon wasn’t about being hot, it was about being hilarious.

From Sarah Silverman going full-frontal in Take This Waltz to Kim Cattrall proving why her Porky’s gym teacher earned the name Lassie (here’s a hint: she howls… »

Interview: Comic Actor Matt Walsh Goes ‘Into the Storm’

7 August 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Matt Walsh has been more visible lately, and it has much to do with his approach to character roles, beginning as Mike McLintock on the HBO series “Veep” and currently in the new film “Into the Storm.” For a Chicago native who began doing comedy improvisation here, he is moving on up.

Matthew Paul Walsh was born in Chicago, and graduated from Hinsdale High School. After college at Northern Illinois University, he became enamored of the improv scene in Chicago in the early 1990s, and studied under the master instructor Del Close. While dividing time between the Annoyance Theater and the ImprovOlympics (iO) in the city, he helped to found the “Uptight Citizens Brigade” (Ucb), which also featured Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Besser. The troupe got its own show on Comedy Central, and has opened Ucb theaters in New York and Los Angeles.

Vince Vaughn In Talks For True Detective Season 2

4 August 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Matthew McConaughey turned his career around in epic fashion, going from leading forgettable rom-coms to starring in a series of excellent dramas. His McConaissance was made complete this year with the one-two punch of an Oscar win for Dallas Buyers Club and an Emmy nomination for his lead role in HBO’s game-changing True Detective. One of the aspects of the latter series that was so widely admired was its success in handing McConaughey an extremely complex and fascinating character to work with.

Casting is currently under way for True Detective‘s second season, which is likely to give another actor a chance to showcase sizable dramatic chops. Colin Farrell has snagged one of the lead roles, and Taylor Kitsch is still in talks for another. Today, TV Line revealed that it has learned which actor may be gearing up for a McConaissance of his own by taking on another »

Vince Vaughn In Talks For 'True Detective' Season 2

4 August 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As "True Detective" season two comes together, the rumors have been flying back and forth. Last month we learned that Colin Farrell was in talks for one of the lead roles, with Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund up for key parts. But today, coming completely out of left field, comes news that would've left Rust Cohle blindsided. TVLine reports that Vince Vaughn —yes, the funnyman from "Wedding Crashers," "Swingers" and "Old School"— is in preliminary talks for a role in HBO's neo-noir drama. Now, before you say Wtf and Lolwut, you should note that Vaughn's recent movements behind the scenes makes this news not entirely surprising. While "Business Or Pleasure" –the kind of comedy you expect from Vaughn— is on the way, Vaughn has also wrapped on the crime drama "Term Life" co-starring Hailee Steinfeld. And at one point a year ago, he had been lining up several non-comedic projects including  the. »

Todd Philips Appears For Rare Screening Of Early Documentary ‘Hated: Gg Allin and the Murder Junkies’

30 June 2014 11:12 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s been approximately 11 years since the release of the infamous documentary about the arguable rock god Gg Allin, “Hated: Gg Allin and the Murder Junkies,” but that didn’t stop the Nitethawk in New York City from screening a rare print late last week to a sold out audience. To top it off, the director of the doc, Todd Phillips, known for such hits as “Old School,” “The Hangover,” and “Due Date,” to name a few, was present for a little Q&A. Phillips was only a junior at Nyu during filming, and it’s safe to say this was the start to a career in acidic comedic pieces revolving around deeply flawed figures. The primary difference between “Hated: Gg Allin and the Murder Junkies” and Phillips’ later work is the fact that this doc centered on an actual, real-life individual and the filmmaker has rarely done documentary films »

Trailer for The Skeleton Twins starring Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader

30 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from its debut at Sundance, and subsequent showings on the festival circuit in the Us, the first trailer for The Skeleton Twins has arrived online, which you can view below…

The film stars Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) and Bill Hader (Adventureland, Superbad) as the titular siblings, who after years of estrangement, are reunited after ten years, still facing up to the varied challenges of their respective lives. Directed by Craig Johnson (True Adolescents) the film has been garnered with mixed praise across the festivals, but the majority of critics have shared their love of Wiig and Hader’s performances in a much more dramatic setting. The Playlist in particular said that the film “proves to be a fine showcase for Wiig and Hader.”

Co-starring Luke Wilson (Old School) and Ty Burrell (Modern Family), we will have to wait until we can pass judgement over here in the UK, »

5 wildest movie house parties: Animal House, Old School, more

2 May 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

To mark the upcoming release of Bad Neighbours, we've decided to compile what we think are the wildest movie house parties of all time. Zac Efron and his frat buddies would be hard-pressed to beat some of these, although there's no doubt they'd down some booze and give it a good go.

Take a look at Digital Spy's cream of the crop below...

Animal House (1978)

This is where it all started, the house party to end (or inspire) all house parties. The toga party that featured in the 1978 classic Animal House has been recreated numerous times in both film and real life, proving just how awesome this bash really was. With an amazing performance of 'Shout' by Otis Day and the Knights and plenty of John Belushi, how could this not have made the list?

Weird Science (1985)

Movie Review – Bad Neighbours (2014)

1 May 2014 11:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bad Neighbours, 2014.

Directed by Nicholas Stoller.

Starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco and Lisa Kudrow.


A couple with a newborn baby face unexpected difficulties after they are forced to live next to a fraternity house.

As the summer rollercoaster beings its journey from boarding station through the swirly, twirly ups and downs of blockbuster land, it’s easy to forget those little guys you can see in the distance: the comedies. This year offers the return of Seth MacFarlane, those crazy lads from Jump Street and ready for Big Saint Nick, Harry and Lloyd return later this year. First out the traps though is everyone’s favourite goofball, Seth Rogen, teamed with hunkier than hunk Zach Efron in the season’s first comedy heavyweight.

Bad Neighbours, directed by Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) is an energetic, colourful comedy that will have many rolling in the aisles this summer. »

'Chef', 'Search Party' and 'Whiplash' in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

22 April 2014 4:58 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I just walked in the door after seeing Jon Favreau's Chef (which I really enjoyed), so I'm not at all to see the R rating for this little family, road trip comedy as the F-bombs fly quite freely throughout. And I have to tell you, after Iron Man 2 and Cowboys & Aliens, I have to assume there is a lot of negative energy Favreau is working out in this film and the end result is a lot of fun to watch. Also in today's ratings bulletin is Damien Chazelle's Whiplash, which was just announced this morning as part of the Director's Fortnight selection at the Cannes Film Festival (full lineup here) following its breakout Sundance premiere. And I hadn't heard of this one until just now, but Universal will release Search Party this September, which is directed and co-written by Old School screenwriter Scot Armstrong and stars the likes of Alison Brie, »

How ‘Draft Day’ Director Ivan Reitman Got His Groove Back

14 April 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

MeatballsStripesGhostbusters and Dave are four of Ivan Reitman‘s films that have stood the test of time. When Reitman was on top of his game, the now 67-year-old filmmaker hit grand slams. I’m not using these sports metaphors because his latest film, Draft Day, includes the NFL Draft, but because, like athletes, some directors have hot streaks and cold streaks. For an array of reasons, slumps happen. Reitman’s lasted 18 years. After Dave he directed Junior, Father’s Day, EvolutionMy Super Ex-Girlfriend, and Six Days, Seven Nights. A few of those films had glimmers of hope that Reitman hadn’t lost his touch, but during those years, only as a producer was he making quality movies. People generally focus on the films that proceeded Dave, not Old SchoolUp in the Air,  I Love You, Man and Private Parts, and one of those acclaimed films he came close to directing. “It »

5 Unusual Movies That Had A Huge Influence On Seth Rogen's Neighbors

17 March 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Neighbors director Nicholas Stoller knows that his movie, on the surface, looks like another comedy you probably adore: Old School. In fact, when we visited the film.s set last year, it was made clear that Stoller and his crew went out of their way to distance Neighbors from Todd Phillips. raucous comedy, to strike off and be its own thing. That.s not to say, however, that Neighbors doesn.t borrow from other movies. How could it not, right? During this year.s South By Southwest film festival, Stoller met me at the Neighbors frat house, located just south of the convention center in downtown Austin, to rehash the rousing reaction the Paramount Theater crowd gave his comedy at its debut screening. And as we kicked around jokes that killed and scenes that lingered, Stoller began pointing out all the different movies that ended up influencing Neighbors, and helping »
