Jim Rash is currently having a very good year. The Oscar-winning screenwriter (remember his Angelina Jolie-leg impersonation onstage?) is following up his co-directorial debut The Way, Way Back with a new project named The Heart, set to star Kristin Wiig; Community, NBC's fan-favorite metasitcom featuring Rash as Greendale’s socially floundering Dean Craig Pelton, has experienced a critical resurgence thanks to the return of original showrunner Dan Harmon; and his SundanceTV show The Writer's Room, in which Rash talks to the writing staffs responsible for some of TV's best running shows, »
Spike comedy series Blue Mountain State was cancelled in 2012 after three seasons, but a second life on Netflix and Hulu reinvigorated fan interest. Now the show’s creators are hoping to channel that demand into a big-screen film continuation with a Kickstarter campaign launched today. “We’ve seen fan activity on social media since the show ended and went on to Netflix, and we’ve seen the audience continue to grow through that platform,” said Alan Ritchson (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), who played high-strung All-American linebacker Thad Castle on the show and is aboard to produce the film project with co-creators Chris Romano and Eric Falconer. “When they find it on Netflix, they also find out it’s no longer airing on Spike or being made. A lot of them are asking for another season. We didn’t get our senior year and we want to do that. »

Maintaining the family business is never easy especially when you have to prevent a deranged artefact collector from opening the door to Hell. The creative talents of writer J.M. Straczynski, and artists Sid Kotian and Bill Farmer have produced a smart and sassy protagonist who would be a great pal of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Veronica Mars.
Allison Carter is the latest in her family’s long line of paranormal investigators specializing in preventing the end of the world. Her grandfather and umpteenth-great-grandfathers probably never anticipated her father having only a daughter, but Al employs the same Carter wit, smarts, and deadly accuracy as her male predecessors—and then some. With an attitude of “shoot first and to Hell with the questions,” she leads a life that would drive other investigators mad, filled with monsters, demons, trolls, mad prophets, zombie detectives, techno-wizards, machinegun toting imps, and undead boyfriends. »

Oh, your dog can sit? That's nice. This dog can sit, stay, come, back up, come again, back up again, sit again, lay down, come, stay, turn, turn again, look away, take a sneak peek, back up, get closer, back up, get closer, touch the toy but not get the toy and, oh Just Count. Like, Count Numbers. Do Math. This dog, a cattle dog named Jumpy, is mind-boggling smart. He's trained by Omar Von Muller, who trained Uggie, the dog from The Artist and Water for Elephants, and Backup from Veronica Mars (real name, Gordo). Elsewhere in the world of dog training, these pups know how to pray before their dinner: (H/T I Love Dogs Site, Daily Picks and Flicks) »
If Ryan Hansen had a say, he would totally greenlight another “Veronica Mars” movie. “I know, let's do another one,” Hansen joked with TheWrap about another “Veronica Mars” movie while promoting his new CBS comedy, “Bad Teacher.” “We won't have you guys pay for it. We'll have someone else pay for it,” he continued about the movie that broke crowdfunding site Kickstarter records.

I wonder what kind of movie will have to show up on a crowdfunding site for the whole world to just give up. Not just give up on the crowdfunding concept, but give up on life, on everything. We got over the Veronica Mars and the Zach Braff and the Spike Lee, but how about this now: Sharknado 2: The Second One is raising money from its poor fans. Don’t worry if you’re one of them; the NYC-set movie is still set to debut on SyFy on July 30th for your snark-Tweeting amusement. It’s not looking to build its budget or anything. It just needs an extra $50K for a single extra secret scene, one we’re only told involves chainsaws. Let me guess: they want to top the first movie’s chainsaw scene. This time will both Ian Ziering and Tara Reid be engulfed and then buzz their way out? The »

In January we did a countdown of 2014 movies we were most looking forward to. With the distribution news that The Last of Robin Hood, an Errol Flynn bio of sorts with Kevin Kline will be released I feel the need to give it a shout out.
Errol Flynn keeps entering my consciousness when I least expect him lately. I was talking to Diana (currently in La with Anne Marie to report on the TCM Film Festival for y'all right her) the other day over dinner and she brought him up. She loves the swashbuckling movie star and enjoyed the film at Tiff. I was also at a very chic event celebrating the photography of George Hurrell and there was a huge absolutely stunning portrait of Errol Flynn mixed with several perfect Joan Crawfords.
So when I read the news today, I became properly stoked at last. I love the poster's »

When Zach Braff first announced his Kickstarter campaign to fund his new project Wish I Was Here (on the heels of Veronica Mars' historic success), I was cautiously optimistic. As a huge fan of Garden State, I have been hoping for a movie that captures the same boldness and relatability - possibly with another life-changing soundtrack. The trailer for Wish I Was Here is a great start. It doesn't say much about the plot, though we know the movie stars Braff as a father/actor struggling to find his identity. Kate Hudson also stars, though you won't see a ton of her here. You will see: a variety of unique dolls, Joey King with a sweet wig, a dying Mandy Patinkin, and Braff's Scrubs costar/best friend Donald Faison. Jim Parsons, who appeared as the knight in Garden State, will be back as well. The trailer features The Shins' "Simple Song, »

Ten years after Garden State, Zach Braff returns with his second feature, Wish I Was Here. It’s not a sequel, though fans will recognize thematic and musical similarities between the films, beginning with the Shins song that plays over the new film’s first trailer.
In the film, which co-stars Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, and Mandy Patinkin, Braff plays a struggling actor who relies on his conservative-Jewish father’s wealth to finance his children’s private-school education. When dad gets sick and has his own expensive medical bills, though, Braff decides to home-school the kids and keep alive his flagging career, »

While interviewing at high-end law firms, Veronica gets a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan (Jason Dohring) who has been accused of murder. Veronica heads back to Neptune just to help Logan find an attorney, but when things don’t seem right with how Logan’s case is perceived and handled, Veronica finds herself being pulled back into a life she thought she had left behind. »
