LeBron James has won two NBA championships, four Most Valuable Player trophies and the hatred of most sports fans outside the state of Florida. But like like Ariel, he wants more. The Miami Heat star will star in a new movie opposite comedian Kevin Hart titled Ballers, currently scheduled to shoot in Miami next summer.
King James has dabbled in acting before (see: Entourage) and stars in those cute Samsung Galaxy commercials you don’t want anyone to know you enjoy. But like other overpaid, detested sports stars, there’s always another world to conquer. Before LeBron stars memorizing his lines or demanding obscurely flavored fruit snacks for his trailer, we advise him to take a look at those athletes who have acted before him. A bad film or television cameo may be fleeting, but an embarrassing clip posted on YouTube is forever.

Despite saying last summer that “Transformers: Age Of Extinction” would be his last at-bat, it seems Michael Bay’s having a great time on set and may have changed his mind about walking away from the hugely successful franchise. And he may not be alone in continuing the saga of giant robots and rampant product placement. In an interesting roundtable discussion THR held with some notable producers behind awards contenders (watch the whole thing here), Mark Wahlberg talked about the difficulties of signing up actors and renegotiating as a franchise gets successful. While the actor-producer at first explained all the problems getting the “Entourage” movie off the ground—“Everybody’s saying it was all about money. It wasn’t, necessarily”—he also talked about his own experiences as an actor at the mercy of other producers, saying “You know ‘Transformers,’ I definitely had to sign up for three. Does that mean we’ll make three? »

Mark Wahlberg said that he planned to have the "Entourage" movie out by Thanksgiving of 2014. Although he had other things to talk about (including his upcoming movie, "Lone Survivor") as a guest on "Live with Kelly and Michael" on Wednesday (Dec. 4), Wahlberg's "Entourage" news was still the biggest part of the interview.

The Weinstein Company is the latest big movie name to be making the shift to television.
A feature in The New York Times reveals that the Weinstein brothers are plotting a shift to scripted television in 2014. According to the newspaper, they're hard at work on more than six new scripted series.
Among the series currently being developed are a 10-episode ancient Egypt-set detective drama called "Book of the Dead"; a 10-episode series called "10 Commandments" where directors like Lee Daniels and Madonna could oversea an episode about one of the commandments given to Moses; a Netflix "martial arts-filled adventure series" called "Marco Polo"; a 14-episode retelling of "War and Peace" with BBC; a look at Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy's later years called "Stan and Ollie" with BBC; and an "Entourage"-style comedy.
But that's not all Weinstein is considering. The company is also looking to develop scripted shows based on its own movies. »
We know that Robert Rodriguez is bringing one of his previous films to the small screen, with a TV adaptation of From Dusk Till Dawn currently filming, and now it's being reported by The New York Times (via ComicBookMovie) that The Weinstein Company is looking to branch out into the TV business and could be planning a Sin City series to follow the theatrical release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For next year.
Apparently, Sin City is one of several movies that Bob Weinstein is looking to adapt for TV, with Rodriguez is said to be involved alongside with comic book creator and co-director Frank Miller. Meanwhile, in addition to the previously announced Scream pilot for MTV, Weinstein is also said to be working with director Frank Darabont on a 10-part series based upon Darabont's 2007 feature adaptation of the Stephen King tale The Mist.
