‘Mudbound’ Finally Hits Netflix Next Month, Plus Music and Film Documentaries
Fall is upon us, and with it a fresh new crop of Netflix movies to curl up with when the weather starts to turn. Next month’s most exciting addition to the streaming service is “Mudbound,” the Southern World Ward II epic from up-and-comer-turned-force-to-be-reckoned-with Dee Rees. Netflix sealed the biggest deal of this year’s Sundance Film Festival when it paid a whopping $12.5 million for “Mudbound,” setting a high bar for the drama. Balancing out the heavier fare are classic comedies like “Men In Black” and “Scary Movie,” as well as “Field of Dreams” and “42” for the baseball lovers.

The fresh crop also includes a bevy of critically acclaimed documentaries, such as “Eventual Salvation,” “Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary,” and “Cuba and the Cameraman.” Jim Carrey’s creative process gets a deep dive in “Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond,” which includes never-before-seen behind the scenes footage from Milos Forman

James Gunn says the Scooby-Doo movie was originally R-rated

Long before he found himself exploring the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn got his big break penning the screenplay for the 2002 live-action adaptation of Scooby-Doo. And, commemorating the fifteenth anniversary of its release, Gunn has taken to Facebook to reveal that it was originally slapped with an R-rating by the MPAA.

“I had loved the character of Scooby-Doo since I was a kid and was excited at the prospect of making a live action film with 2002’s cutting CGI technology(!!),” said Gunn. “Yes, it was not exactly what we planned going out – I had written an edgier film geared toward older kids and adults, and the studio ended pushing it into an clean cut children’s film. And, yes, the rumors are true – the first cut was rated R by the MPAA, and the female stars’ cleavage was CGI’d away so as not to offend.

Warner Bros. to launch Hanna-Barbera cinematic universe with Scooby-Doo reboot S.C.O.O.B.

Last year it was revealed that Warner Bros. is bringing back the Mystery, Inc. gang for an animated big screen Scooby-Doo feature in 2018, and yesterday at CinemaCon the studio announced that the now-titled S.C.O.O.B. will be the first step in “unlocking the whole Hanna-Barbera universe.”

The iconic animation studio is of course responsible for some of the best-loved characters of the 20th century, including the likes of The Flintstones, Wacky Races, The Jetsons, Johnny Quest, Top Cat, Hong Kong Phooey and Yogi Bear. A this point, it’s unclear which properties will follow Scooby-Doo, and whether we’ll see crossovers between the various cartoons.

S.C.O.O.B. will be directed by Tony Cervone (Space Jam, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated) from a script by Matt Lieberman (Dr. Dolittle: Tail to the Chief), with Charles Roven and Richard Suckle (Scooby-Doo, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed) serving as producers.

Don't Expect A "Howard The Duck" Movie

  • Dark Horizons
One of the most well-received easter eggs in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" was the post-end credits stinger in which we got a cameo from Howard the Duck.

"Robot Chicken" creator and "Austin Powers" star Seth Green voiced Howard for the brief scene, and was asked at New York Comic-Con this week if there are plans for another "Howard the Duck" movie in the works considering the great reception he got?

Green tells IGN that basically there's zero chance of it happening, at best we'll get another cameo:

"Nobody has said anything to me about that. The truth is, [director James] Gunn and I are buddies from Scooby-Doo. So, the whole Howard the Duck thing, and me getting to be that was a last minute, 'who do I know who is in town who can do this on this date before the color print delivers?'

Nobody is thinking about a Howard the Duck movie.

11 stars of classic '90s teen movies: Where are they now?

11 stars of classic '90s teen movies: Where are they now?
Charlie Lyne's documentary Beyond Clueless harks back to the classic teen movies that shaped the '90s.

Featuring narration from The Craft's Fairuza Balk (and with clips of Robin Tunney, Devon Sawa and co), it made us feel a sudden pang of nostalgia and sent us on our own trip down memory lane to find out where they - and the rest of the '90s teen movie crew - are now.

So, here are 11 stars from some of our favourite '90s teen movies, and what they've gone on to do since:

1. Devon Sawa - Idle Hands (1999)

Dreamy Devon Sawa starred as lazy stoner Anton Tobias - who turns mass murderer after his hand becomes possessed - in the horror comedy Idle Hands.

He went on to play teenage prophet of doom Alex Browning in Final Destination (2000), and appeared as similarly unstable Stan in Eminem's controversial music

What’s New, Scooby Doo? Scooby-Doo, Apparently

When Scooby-Doo’s around, nothing stays buried for very long. Not even the Scooby-Doo film franchise. Yes, according to Deadline, Warner Bros. will be giving the reboot treatment to their beloved mystery-solving, implied weed-smoking canine. Details are scarce about the project, but we do know three major developments: 1. Screenplay duties will be handled by Randall Green. 2. This new Scooby-Doo will most likely be live-action, according to a later report from Variety. 3. Announcing an all-new Scooby-Doo adventure three days after the death of Casey Kasem is probably not the most respectful move. But WB is the one that unearthed this corpse, so we’re the ones that have to intrepidly investigate until we can figure out which local business owner is really responsible. First of all, it’s not hard to see why WB would want to shove their cartoon dog through the great rebooting machine. Scoobert’s fallen on hard times in the last few years. It

Live-Action Scooby Doo Reboot in the Works at Warner Bros.

  • HeyUGuys
Just a decade after the release of Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, Warner Bros. are planning on rebooting the franchise with a new live-action movie. The original two were written by Guardians of the Galaxy’s James Gunn and directed by Raja Gosnell (The Smurfs).

Both of the movies did well at the box office, but the sequel was not well-received by critics, and the iconic Hanna-Barbera has since been kept on the small screen and direct-to-dvd animated features.

According to Deadline, Charles Roven (who produced the first two movies which starred Freddie Prinze Jr, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, and Linda Cardellini) will also be spearheading this new take, although he’s the only one currently attached to the reboot, so it’s obviously still at a very early stage.

How they will recreate Scooby Doo for a new audience remains to be seen. The last two movies had a

Warner Bros. to reboot Scooby-Doo

It looks like Scooby-Doo is heading back to the big screen, with Deadline revealing that Warner Bros. has tapped screenwriter Randall Green to develop a new live-action adventure Scooby and the Mystery, Inc. gang.

The first live-action Scooby-Doo movie was released in 2002 and starred Freddie Prinze, Jr. (Fred), Sarah Michelle Hellar (Daphne), Linda Cardellini (Velma) and Matthew Lillard (Shaggy). The cast reunited two years later for Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, and were succeeded by Robbie Amell (Fred), Kate Melton (Daphne), Hayley Kiyoko (Velma) and Nick Palatas (Shaggy) for the straight-to-video prequels Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins (2009) and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster (2010).

‘Scooby-Doo' and the gang pile back in the mystery Machine for big screen reboot
(Cbr) A decade after the release of "Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed," Deadline reports Warner Bros. is plotting the Mystery Inc. gang’s return to the big screen in a live-action reboot. The studio first brought the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon to life in the 2002 comedy "Scooby-Doo," from director Raja Gosnell and screenwriter James Gunn (who of course went on to direct Marvel’s "Guardians of the Galaxy"). It starred Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Linda Cardellini and Matthew Lillard, who reprised their roles in the 2004 sequel. Plans for a third feature were scrapped, with the studio instead opting for a pair of television movies featuring a new cast: the 2009 origin story "Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins" and its 2010 follow-up "Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster."
