Taskmaster Rights Revert To Marvel Studios

28 December 2015 8:27 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It looks like one Marvel character which was residing over at 20th Century Fox has now jumped back over to the stable at Disney & Marvel Studios - Taskmaster.

Talking about the recent "Deadpool" trailer again this week with Empire, that film's director Tim Miller seemed to suggest that the character is no longer a part of Fox's stable of Marvel characters like the X-Men and Fantastic Four:

"I'd love to see Deadpool fight Batman - no, I'm just kidding, that's not even in the Marvel family! I'd love to see Deadpool go up against Taskmaster who's another Marvel total f--kin' badass. But if I was to stay inside the Fox family, I would like to see him fight X-23, the female Wolverine. The female clone of Wolverine."

Heroic Hollywood followed-up on those comments with their sources who "confirmed to me that the character rights no longer lie with 20th Century Fox. »

Listen To Composer Alan Silvestri’s Score For The Walk

25 September 2015 11:37 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

An impossible, but true story, the new film from Robert Zemeckis, The Walk is a live-action, PG-rated entertainment for all audiences, ages 8 to 80. A love letter to the World Trade Center, the film is a 3D and IMAX visual experience, unlike anything audiences have seen.

On August 7, 1974 – the day before Richard Nixon announced he would be resigning from office – Philippe Petit, a French aerialist, surprised the city of New York with a high-wire walk between the towers of the almost-completed and partially occupied World Trade Center. Passersby without a moment to spare stopped in their tracks and looked up. They saw the impossible: a man dancing high in the sky, seemingly in the thin air.

Now, forty years later, Zemeckis – one of cinema’s most accomplished filmmakers at integrating technology in the service of emotional storytelling – is putting moviegoers in Petit’s shoes. The Walk, an epic, big-screen cinematic spectacle, »

The A-Team: TV reboot in the works

25 September 2015 1:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fast & Furious and Sleepy Hollow alumni are working on a new telly version of The A-Team, for Fox...

In 2010, a crack commando unit got a film reboot from a studio that didn’t bother to continue with the franchise. Today, they survive as soldiers of fortune, and have been rebooted once more for the televisual realm. If you have a free evening, if no other show will do, and if you can find them.... maybe you will watch, The A-Team.

Indulgent intros aside, we’ll get to the point – Fox is developing a new TV version of The A-Team.

Sleepy Hollow writer Albert Kim is currently working on a script, and Tawnia McKiernan - daughter of the original series’ co-creator Stephen J. Cannell – has been lined up as a producer. Additionally, Chris Morgan – who has been heavily involved in the Fast & Furious film series – is also on board as a producer. »

20th Century Fox Bringing ‘The A-Team’ Back to TV

If you take a classic TV property to the big screen for a contemporary adaptation that doesn’t turn into a film franchise as initially hoped, what do you do? You remake it on television, of course! After bringing The A-Team to the big screen in 2010 with Bradley Cooper, Liam Neeson, Sharlto Copley and Quinton […]

The A-Team is getting remade for another run on TV

Joe Carnahan gave it his best shot at resurrecting The A-team brand as a feature film, but audiences didn't bite (Too bad... a highly underrated action flick). 20th Century Fox Television is willing to bet that things might be different if they bring the brand back to TV, as they set out to remake The A-team for another run as a series.  Produced by Chris Morgan, who is otherwise producing and penning the Fast &...

'A-Team' TV Show Reboot Planned with 'Furious 7' Writer

24 September 2015 12:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox Television is developing a remake of the 1980s classic TV show The A-Team, with Furious 7 screenwriter Chris Morgan coming aboard to produce the new series, according to a report from Deadline. The news comes five years after 20th Century Fox released their big-screen adaptation of The A-Team, which starred Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley and Quinton Jackson. This rebooted TV series will have a contemporary setting, with a twist on the team itself.

The original series centered on four highly-trained special forces soldiers, John "Hannibal" Smith (George Peppard), Templeton "Faceman" Peck (Dirk Benedict), H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock (Dwight Schultz) and B.A. (Bad Attitude) Baracus (Mr. T), who escaped from a military prison after being detained for a crime they didn't commit. They fled to Los Angeles and began working as "soldiers of fortune," using their immense skills to help people in need, while trying to clear their name. »

We Pity the Fools: The A-Team Is Getting Another Remake

24 September 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Reboot fever is far from over: Deadline reports that The A-Team will get a second life on TV. This time around, Fast and the Furious writer-producer Chris Morgan will executive-produce the action show for Fox (the original aired on NBC) alongside Tawnia McKiernan, daughter of the show's original creator, Stephen J. Cannell. It'll have the same premise: A group of American Special Forces ops get framed for a crime they didn't commit, only now the group will prominently feature women instead of mostly putting them on the sidelines, like the original series did with Amy Amanda "Triple A" Allen. In 2010, Fox also remade the series as a feature film starring Bradley Cooper and Liam Neeson that wasn't exactly the box-office smash it hoped for. Perhaps, in its original TV format, it'll fare better — especially if they get Ed Sheeran to revamp the theme song. »

Ready For An A-Team TV Reboot?

24 September 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Thirty years ago, a crack commando unit was sent to television by producer Stephen J. Cannell for The A-Team, a series about helping people in need as soldiers of fortune. After five years, they escaped into the Los Angeles underground until 2010, when the characters were given the big budget film treatment by Joe Carnahan. Now, 20th Century Fox Television has found them again and is planning a reboot series.Yes, while the movie version had its Ott charms but never pulled off the trick of launching a film franchise, the rights holders are now pinning their hopes on a refreshed TV series. Sleepy Hollow writer/producer Albert Kim and regular telly director Tawnia McKiernan (who also happens to be Cannell’s daughter) are set to be locked in a garage until they finish retooling the series for contemporary audiences, adding some new spins to the format including a more diverse »

The A-Team being rebooted for TV by Fast & Furious producer Chris Morgan

24 September 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, it looks like you’ll soon be able to hire The A-Team once again, as Deadline is reporting that Fast & Furious writer-producer Chris Morgan is teaming up with Tawnia McKiernan, daughter of creator Stephen J. Cannell, for a contemporary take on the classic 1980s TV show.

According to Deadline’s report, “the new A-Team revolves around a diverse team of American Special Forces operatives. Unlike the original all-male squad, the new team will include both male and female memebrs. The group has been framed for a crime they didn’t commit and set out to clear their names by uncovering the black-ops conspiracy that set them up. Along the way, they are driven to help those in need by using their singular military skills, high-tech expertise and often conflicting individual approaches. It’s »

‘A-Team’ TV Remake in the Works

24 September 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The A-Team” is the latest iconic project to receive the TV remake treatment, as Variety has confirmed that 20th Century Fox TV is in early talks to bring back Stephen J. Cannell and Frank Lupo’s 1980s action series.

The project would offer a contemporary take on the NBC series remembered by most for starring Mr. T and his penchant for gold accessories (other stars included George Peppard, Dirk Benedict and Dwight Schultz, as well as many, many guest stars — some of whom played themselves). Keeping with the times, this version would include female members of the American Special Forces group.

“Fast & Furious” writer-producer Chris Morgan is executive producing this version with Cannell’s daughter, TV director Tawnia McKiernan (“Criminal Minds,” “Warehouse 13”). It is penned by “Sleepy Hollow” exec producer Albert Kim.

A feature film version of “The A-Team” was released in 2010 and starred Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper. »

It was only a matter of time before another attempt to revive The A-Team was made. Chris Morgan, the writer and producer of The Fast & The Furious movies, is said to be developing a new TV series based on the iconic 1980s show.

Deadline reports the news that the new version of the show will feature both male and female A-Team members, as opposed to the original NBC show, which revolved around four male special forces operatives, who were framed for a crime thath they didn’t commit.

Original series creator Stephen J. Cannell passed a way a little while ago, but his daughter, TV director Tawnia McKiernan is heavily involved with the project.

The new series is set up at 20th Century Fox TV, and rather than being a set during the 1980s, the new version of The A-Team will take place in ther modern day; a bit like »

Liam Neeson Will Be 'The Commuter' --- How Will He Survive?

22 September 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Liam Neeson is one busy fella! His latest suspense-thriller, The Commuter, will find him starring as a normal businessman who gets caught up in a criminal conspiracy that affects him and his fellow commuters, according to Deadline. The role will be a departure for him, in that he won't be able to draw upon "a particular set of skills," as he did in the Taken movies that made him a worldwide action star. Since the first installment in 2008, Neeson has displayed his action chops in Clash of the Titans, The A-Team, Unknown, The Grey, Wrath of the Titans, Battleship, Non-Stop, and Run All Night, and he's also set to star in upcoming action pictures such as The Returner and A Willing Patriot. Now, not all those movies have been straightforward action movies. Joe...

Joe Carnahan Still Directing ‘Five Against a Bullet,’ Bruce Willis No Longer on Board

About three and a half years ago, Bruce Willis became attached to Five Against a Bullet, an action thriller formerly set up at Columbia Pictures from Transformers and G.I. Joe franchise producer Lorenzo Dibonaventura. Then just last year, The A-Team and Smokin’ Aces director Joe Carnahan came on board the project. However, one of them […]

Joe Carnahan Finally Shoots Five Against A Bullet

28 August 2015 2:40 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

In development since 2011 and with Joe Carnahan attached to direct since this time last year, Five Against A Bullet has finally got the go-ahead. Carnahan's name was recently connected with Bad Boys 3, but it looks like this will happen first.Five Against A Bullet has been lingering in limbo for a while, ever since Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura brought it to studio Sony four years ago. Originally boasting a script by Alex Litvak (Predators), it’s the story of a Mexican politician whose father is slaughtered by a drug cartel. In order to stay alive during a campaign to clean up his local area, the canny politico hires the five best bodyguards available.The film attracted Bruce Willis’ attention in 2012, but things went quiet after that.

Hitman: Agent 47 | Review

21 August 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Hanna and Her Sisters: The Art of the Persistently Insipid Video Game Reboot

A tip of the hat to 20th Century Fox as they valiantly try to re-launch their failed video-game based franchise with a new chapter of risible artifice, Hitman: Agent 47, which follows the 2007 film Hitman. Recapitulated for a ‘new generation,’ or so it constantly confirms for us, perhaps it would have been beneficial to hire someone other than returning screenwriter Skip Woods for the treatment (who went on to pen franchise material like X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The A-Team, and A Good Day to Die Hard). Staunchly uninterested in providing even one moment of logical comprehension or stage anything resembling an original concept, this derivative slog of action sequences and B-movie tropes tiredly goes through the motions of narrative filmmaking but never quite reveals what the point seems to be.

Jumping immediately into a curdled stew of conventional Cold War espionage, »
