‘Clue’ Remake From Hasbro Lands at Fox

17 August 2016 3:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox has come on board Hasbro Studios’ “Clue” movie, five years after the board game-based project was ditched at Universal.

Josh Feldman, the head of Hasbro’s TV and film division, is producing for Hasbro Studios. Daria Cercek is overseeing for Fox.

Hasbro launched development of a “Clue” movie in 2008 as part of a six-year partnership with Universal to produce at least four feature films based on branded properties: Clue, Monopoly, Candyland, Ouija, Battleship, Magic: The Gathering and Stretch Armstrong.

“Battleship” was a costly money-loser for the studio in 2012 while “Ouija” grossed $103 million on a $5 million budget and generated a sequel “Ouija: Origin of Evil” that’s due out Oct. 21. At the time that Universal dropped the “Clue” project, “Pirates of the Caribbean” director Gore Verbinski was attached to direct and produce, but is no longer part of the project at Fox.

Hasbro’s seen its greatest success in Hollywood with “Ouija, »

Comic Book Reviews: DC Round Up Week 08-03-2016

When I first started writing reviews for Lrm I stated I would stick with all the DC Rebirth Issues until at least issue 6 before considering any to drop. So far, I’ve pleasantly been surprised by my complete interest in All the Rebirth Titles thus far! We are approaching issue 4 for most of the newly revamped series, with still many more trickling in that show promise. As the first “wave” of books get closer to issue 6, I’ll do a quick rundown on those series and try to help new readers choose which books might be best for them. Until then, be sure to sound off in the comments on how you’re liking (or disliking) the DC Rebirth!

Aquaman #4

Story: Dan Abnett Art: Philippe Briones Colors: Gabe Eltaeb

Review: Aquaman has become a sort of love hate series for me in this DC Rebirth. »

The Saint Remake Is Happening at Paramount Pictures

17 June 2016 6:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Paramount is currently in production on the next installment of its Transformers franchise with Transformers: The Last Knight, the studio is planning on launching a much different franchise. The studio has acquired the rights to Leslie Charteris' long-running book series The Saint for a new movie reboot. The studio previously distributed the 1997 version of The Saint, which starred Val Kilmer and Elizabeth Shue.

Leslie Charteris original book series, which ran from 1928 to 1963, followed Simon Templar, a thief who would pull off elaborate heists, stealing from corrupt politicians, drug dealers and other criminals and spread their wealth among the less fortunate. The books were adapted into a 1960s British TV series which starred Roger Moore as Simon Templar. There was also a recent attempt to revitalize the property as an American TV series, which will now be released as a TV movie later this year, starring Adam Rayner (Tyrant) as Simon Templar, »

‘The Saint’ Movie Reboot in the Works at Paramount

17 June 2016 2:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount is developing a movie reboot of “The Saint,” two decades after Val Kilmer’s thriller and 50 years after Roger Moore’s TV series.

The studio has secured a deal for book series rights and is closing producing deals with Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Brad Krevoy and Robert Evans with the goal of starting an action franchise.

The Saint” is based on Leslie Charteris’ book series, which follow the debonair Simon Templar character first introduced in the 1928 novel “Meet the Tiger,” followed by “Enter the Saint” in 1930. Templar stole from corrupt politicians and warmongers, leaving a calling card of a stick figure with a halo.

George Sanders starred in half a dozen films as “The Saint” in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Prior to his days portraying James Bond, Moore starred in a popular long-running British TV series during the 1960s.

The 1997 movie starred Kilmer and Elisabeth Shue, and was »
