Ben Stiller Steps In For Russell Brand In ‘Rentaghost,’ From ‘Museum’ Scribes

12 October 2011 2:14 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant are funny guys (just look at Reno 911!), but when it comes to feature films I’ve always been left disappointed. With studio comedies such as Taxi, Let’s Go to Prison, Balls of Fury and Night at the Museum films, they’ve never lived up to their long-running parody show. Deadline now reports that 20th Century Fox has hired to the duo write the feature remake of the popular ’70s/’80s British kids comedy show Rentaghost.

With the announcement, we also get the news that their Museum star Ben Stiller will come on as lead, stepping in for the previously attached Russell Brand. The “Beetlejuice-style afterlife comedy” follows Fred Mumford, a ghost who is determined to be more useful dead than alive, so the formerly living loser sets up a temp agency staffed with ghosts and ghouls. From there, “Mumford and cohorts rent out »

25 August 2011 8:18 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly thing that you read. You know it, I know it, and little Baby Jesus knows it. We begin tonight with one of 70 new images from Contagion, Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming viral thriller. Early buzz insists that it’s not only good, but that it will make you want to wash your hands. As if you needed another reason — germs are everywhere, I tell you. Everywhere! Paul Solet, the man who disturbed audiences with the killer pregnancy film Grace, has picked his next project. FilmNation announced via press release today that Solet will direct The Faces, a terrifying story of two newlyweds who, a year after narrowly escaping a brutal kidnapping, discover an underground world in which terror is used for entertainment. A good number of the inspirational posters on the new Tumblr Wire Inspire, which celebrate the motivational nature of David Simon’s The Wire, are »

Robert Ben Garant Adapting Japanese Graphic Novel Tux for Disney

4 August 2011 4:04 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The guy who co-wrote the book on writing movies for fun and profit (no, but really) has landed another gig. Robert Ben Garant, who recently released the book Writing Movies for Fun and Profit with his writing partner Thomas Lennon, has signed on to adapt the Japanese graphic novel Tuxedo Gin for Disney. The project's title will be shortened to Tux and, according to Deadline, will center on a young street fighter who receives a tough lesson in karma upon lapsing into a coma. As writer/artist Tokihiko Matsuura's story goes, the fighter's selfish earthly ways lead to him being reincarnated as a penguin, an obstacle he must overcome if he wishes to return to his less penguin-like state and former flame alike. Garant will executive produce the film alongside Isamu Kamei. In addition to Tux, Garant also has writing credits on titles such as Night at the Museum, Herbie Fully Loaded, »

4 July 2011 12:18 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Thomas Lennon can currently be seen making naked love to a photocopy machine in Bad Teacher opposite Cameron Diaz. While he has made a career out of hilarious comedic roles such as Lt.

He and his screenwriting partner Robert Ben Garant are responsible for the scripts to Night at the Museum and its sequel, the ping pong epic Balls of Fury, and Herbie: Fully Loaded. Together, they have penned the how-to epic Writing Movies for Fun and Profit: How We Made a Billion Dollars at the Box Office and You Can, Too!, which is now available at retailers nationwide. We recently caught up with Thomas to chat about both the book and his quick appearance in Bad Teacher. Click on the clip below for our exclusive interview.

Vin Diesel to Produce and Star in Action-Comedy The Machine

19 May 2011 1:02 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Vin Diesel provided the voice for eponymous character in 1999's The Iron Giant and he's about go back to robotics.  Heat Vision reports that Diesel will produce and star in the action comedy The Machine for MGM.  Diesel will play "a human-like machine created in secrecy by the Pentagon as the world's first true ultimate weapon. Twenty years after the project was buried and decommissioned for reasons unknown, The Machine is discovered by a kid who befriends him. When the government learns it has been reactivated, the Machine must protect the family harboring him."  So it's kind of like The Iron Giant except without the charming animation. Hit the jump for more details on the film and why I don't think we're getting anything close to the level of quality seen in The Iron Giant. Also worrisome is that Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant.  Lennon and Garant are both »

ABC Announces 2011-2012 Schedule – Preview It Here

18 May 2011 12:22 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

ABC has a slew of new shows coming, many of which need a lot of luck if they're going to last more than a handful of episodes. The schedule has been released, so let's take a lot at what's coming.

Oddly enough, as part of the new announcement, ABC has solidified the return of several more shows, including Happy Endings, despite the fact that two other networks have shows on their slate with cast members from the show. That should be interesting. Of course, it works for me, because I'm a fan.

In other news, Desperate Housewives will not die. Are you kidding me with this show still being on?

New Series - “Apartment 23,” “Charlie’s Angels,” “Good Christian Belles,” “Last Man Standing,” “Man Up,” “Missing,” “Once Upon a Time,” “Pan Am,” “Revenge,” “The River,” “Scandal,” “Suburgatory” and “Work It” Join the Lineup

Returning shows - “America’s Funniest Home Videos, »

Watch clips from ABC's new comedies: Apartment 23, Last Man Standing and more

17 May 2011 11:08 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Earlier we shared ABC's primetime lineup, and now we have some clips from the new comedy series for you. The new comedies include Apartment 23, Suburgatory, Last Man Standing, Man Up, and Work It. So far I think Apartment 23 looks the best. Check out the clips below and let us know what shows you are liking the most.

Apartment 23

After a naive Midwestern girl's big city dreams are dashed her first week in New York, she finds herself living with her worst nightmare in this hilarious, contemporary comedy about a female odd couple who are surrounded by an outrageous cast of characters. June (Dreama Walker) moves to Manhattan for a dream job and the perfect company apartment, only to have them disappear in a puff of reality, thanks to a CEO from the Bernie Madoff school of embezzlement. Deep in debt and out on the streets, June scrambles to land a job and place to live. »

ABC Announces Full Fall 2011-12 Primetime Schedule

17 May 2011 9:12 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

NBC and Fox have both unleashed their Fall 2011-2012 TV schedule, now ABC has released theirs. I’m excited to see Castle, Modern Family, and The Middle back in the mix. Most of the new shows they have line-up don’t really interest me, but there are a few that have caught my eye. PanAm is another 1960’s based TV show that will go against AMC’s Mad Men and NBC’s The Playboy Club. There’s a show called Revenge that sounds really interesting, but the new series I’m most excited about is is the fantasy series Once Upon A Time, a show where fairy tales collide with the modern day.

Here is ABC’s full schedule along with a description of all of their shows. Go through them below and let us know what TV series you’re most excited about seeing.

TV News: ABC Reveals Exciting Fall Schedule Including New Series Details

17 May 2011 7:10 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – NBC & Fox released their schedules already this week and there are a few interesting highlights, but ABC has released easily the most aggressive and ambitious new slate of programs, which will feature at least one new program five nights a week. Overall, they’re debuting seven new programs in the Fall alone, clearly trying to cement an exciting schedule before the mid-season instead of holding back programs for 2012.

As far as returning series go, “Cougar Town” will not return until 2012, allowing the promising “Happy Endings” to move into a great spot, post-“Modern Family.” (Thank you ABC. Thank you.) “Happy Endings” and “Extreme Makover: Home Edition” (which will be on Fridays now) are the only returning shows moving as ABC had enough to worry about with new shows and are keeping “Dancing With the Stars,” “Castle,” “Body of Proof,” “The Middle,” “Modern Family, »

17 May 2011 5:04 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

ABC hopes 13 is its lucky number. The network has picked up a baker’s dozen new shows to populate its fall and midseason schedule, which includes opening a new comedy block.

Wednesdays adds new comedy Suburgatory, plus soap thriller, Revenge, at 10 p.m., with Cougar Town shifting to midseason and Happy Endings getting the Modern Family lead-in.

Box Office Beat Down: Rango Takes $38 Million in Its Opening Weekend

Rango $38 millionThe Adjustment Bureau $20.9 millionBeastly $10.1 millionHall Pass $9 millionGnomeo and Juliet $6.9 millionUnknown $6.6 millionThe King's Speech $6.5 millionJust Go with It $6.4 millionI Am Number Four $5.7 millionJustin Bieber: Never Say Never $4.3 million

The new comedy Hall Pass just barely managed to beat out Gnomeo and Juliet last week to take the top spot at the box office in its debut. But with four new films entering the box office race this week including the animated Western Rango, The Adjustment Bureau with Matt Damon, the teen drama Beastly, and the '80s comedy Take Me Home Tonight, the Owen Wilson comedy was unable to retain its box office crown for a second week in a row.

Debuting at number one this week is the new computer animated Western from Pirates of The Caribbean director Gore Verbinski called Rango. The film stars Oscar nominee Johnny Depp (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), as well as Isla Fisher »

[Review] Take Me Home Tonight

5 March 2011 2:47 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In three or four months when your walking past your local RedBox and you see a DVD titled Take Me Home Tonight, please don’t take its advice. The sin of the film is it stretches what should be a second act of a film into the whole narrative, it’s a film about “one big night” and when characters are aware it’s going to be a “big night” – it kind of takes the fun out of the film.

Topher Grace is Matt; an MIT graduate who works at Suncoast Video at the mall, his twin sister, Wendy is played by Anna Faris gets engaged to a typical polo-wearing jerk whose daddy is buying him a fast food franchise. Dan Fogler, which I think represents most of what is wrong about the film, is a Barry. In the afternoon of this “big/best night ever” he’s fired from »
