'Survivor' host Jeff Probst says Mike White helped get rid of Redemption Island

13 November 2014 4:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Every week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water.’ Entertainment Weekly: You bastard! You got me! I’ve been talking all season about how Josh is getting a “winner’s edit,” and now the dude is out of the game! But what amazes me the most is how folks still can neglect people on the fringes of their alliance. You and I have spoken countless times over the years about the importance of making the people at the bottom of the totem pole feel important, »

Sam Raimi in Talks to Direct Love May Fail for Sony

14 October 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It looks like director Sam Raimi will be moving in a very different direction of filmmaking than what we are used to seeing him do. Over the years he's given us films such as Evil Dead, Darkman, Army of Darkness, Spider-Man, Drag Me to Hell, and his most recent film, Oz the Great and Powerful

Deadline is now reporting that the director is in talks to helm an adaptation of a novel called Love May Fail, which was written by Silver Linings Playbook author Matthew Quick. The script for this film was adapted by Mike White (School of Rock, Nacho Libre).

The story follows a character named Portia Kane, "who is coming off a demoralizing ending to her marriage to a cheating husband." While going through this, she "returns to her hometown determined to clear the name of her favorite English teacher, whose career was forcibly ended after a classroom scandal. »

Sam Raimi in Talks to Direct Matthew Quick Adaptation Love May Fail

14 October 2014 1:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Clearly Sam Raimi knows a thing or two about radioactive spiders, Oz and summoning demons, but he’s going to take a more grounded approach to his next project.  It’s being reported that Raimi may direct the next Matthew Quick (Silver Linings Playbook) adaptation, Love May Fail. The book doesn’t even arrive in stores until June 2015, but Sony snatched up the film rights during a heated bidding war last year. Mike White (Nacho Libre, School of Rock) penned the screenplay and Matt Tolmach is on board to produce.  Hit the jump for more on the Love May Fail feature film. Raimi’s involvement isn’t a done deal yet.  According to Deadline, he’s currently in talks for the gig, but if he does commit, he’ll be working with the story of Portia Kane, a woman who leaves her fancy lifestyle and cheating husband behind for her childhood home. »

Sam Raimi Circling Adaptation Of Matthew Quick’s Love May Fail

14 October 2014 12:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you venture into your local book store or library, there’s a good chance that within the armful of novels you cart home, at least one has either been adapted or is in the process of being adapted into a film. Hey, it’s the nature of the Hollywood beast nowadays. With authors and their creative minds acting as a spawning ground for new feature length movies, their masterpieces are even earmarked for the big screen before they hit shelves. The latest literary tome heading into that territory is Matthew Quick’s Love May Fail, which Sam Raimi might direct.

Quick’s name is guaranteed to rouse the attention of producers. His novel Silver Linings Playbook scored a ton of critical acclaim and an Oscar for leading lady Jennifer Lawrence. His specific style, situated in the same arena as Jonathan Tropper (who penned This Is Where I Leave You), is ideal dramedy fodder, »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

'School of Rock' Director Takes on 'The One and Only Ivan'

21 July 2014 8:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Filmmaker Mike White is in talks with Walt Disney Pictures to write and direct The One and Only Ivan.

We first reported on the project back in April, when Disney was in negotiations to acquire the screen rights for Katherine Applegate's 2011 novel, which won the Newberry Medal. The story follows a silverback gorilla named Ivan, who lives in captivity at a massive shopping center with an elephant named Stella and a stray dog named Bob. While Ivan previously couldn't remember any part of his life after he was brought to this shopping center, he begins to recall vivid memories after a baby elephant arrives. Ivan teams up with Stella and Bob to escape and return this baby elephant back to the wild.

Katherine Applegate based her story on a real life gorilla named Ivan, who spent 27 years in a Washington D.C. shopping mall before being transferred to the Atlanta zoo. »

Jack Black talks 'Goosebumps' movie

17 July 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In the upcoming Goosebumps movie, comedian Jack Black stars as spooky storyteller R. L. Stine, whose ghoulish creatures—previously confined to his bestselling children’s books—are unexpectedly brought to life by a teen neighbor (Scandal first kid Dylan Minnette). With the help of Stine’s daughter, Hannah (Israeli actress Odeya Rush), a race ensues to capture the author’s manic monsters from wrecking havoc on their small town. It’s a comedy-fueled horror (due Aug. 7, 2015) that promises to channel Goosebumps’ kid-approved brand of scary while pleasing grownup loyalists of the 1990s franchise.

Video: Screenwriter Mike White explains his creative process

8 July 2014 3:54 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Mike White, the screenwriter behind School of Rock and Nacho Libre, has a very specific creative process. For starters, he’s up at 6 a.m. to start writing, and unlike a lot of writers, by 5 p.m., he’s said goodbye to his laptop for the day.

In an episode of the YouTube series Academy Originals from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences, White explains why it is that he doesn’t write at night, and how he prepares for his morning bursts of creativity. (Hint: It involves sleep and yoga.) »

Jason Sudeikis In The Crosshairs For ‘Loomis Fargo’

26 June 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s the night of the tough-to-type surnames as comedy star Jason Sudeikis is to appear alongside his Campaign compadre Zach Galafianakis and Kristen Wiig in a crime drama formerly known as Loomis Fargo, currently untitled. I would have thought this is being changed due to parallels with Fargo and it isn’t clear if it’s a place or the main character’s handle. Either way, the “true” story follows an amateur heister who is betrayed by his fellows before plotting vengeance from Mexico. The actor will play an assassin, presumably a highly affable one based on his turn in Horrible Bosses (the sequel to which, inexplicably, is on the way).

Just as Wiig has been showing her serious side in The Skeleton Twins, so We’Re The Millers lead Sudeikis is getting a chance to broaden his horizons and by the looks of things director Jared Hess is »

From Tina to Tots: Catch Up with the Cast of Napoleon Dynamite 10 Years Later

11 June 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Napoleon Dynamite turns 10 on Wednesday, so we "guess you can say things are getting pretty serious." On June 11, 2004, the delightfully strange tale of an awkward yet confident high-schooler dancing his way through life hit theaters. Made on a budget of $400,000, the film went on to earn $44 million at the box office and has grown into a comedy classic, thanks to its quirky characters, ridiculously quotable conversations and a finicky llama named Tina. School elections and tater tots will never be the same thanks to Napoleon and the rest of the crew. To celebrate the movie's anniversary, the cast reunited at »

5 Secret Goosebumps Movies Starring Jack Black

24 April 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jack Black has been tapped to play R.L. Stine, author of the beloved 'Goosebumps' series, in the film adaptation. Instead of using one of the many books for the movie franchise, it turns out Stine's monsters are real and he can only contain them by writing them into novels that double as prisons. You can read the whole synopsis over here. Sure many — sane — people would look such a meta concept and ponder if humanity has gone too far. Well I say no! In fact, we've not gone far enough into the meta wormhole! What if Jack Black as R.L. Stine as Jack Black had to keep the monsters of Goosebumps contained by being in a series of mediocre films? What If This Explains Jack Black'S Whole Career? In fact, I went back with a special Goosebumps-light* to check for anomalies and it's totally true! Jack Black »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2009

19 February 2014 5:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 20 Feb 2014 - 05:40

The unloved films of 2009 provide the focus in our final list of the 2000s' overlooked greats...

The year 2009 will partly be remembered as the year Avatar dominating the box office, with audiences flocking to see James Cameron's leafy pulp epic in shimmering 3D. Making almost $2.8bn worldwide, Avatar was a true behemoth, besting Cameron's own Titanic as the highest-grossing film of all time (not adjusted for inflation) and hastening a rush of 3D films in the years that followed.

Films such as 2012, Sherlock Holmes and boozy comedy The Hangover were also among the top 10, but as always, some of the most memorable and individual films of the year were far from the most financially successful. So to round off our series of underrated flicks of the 2000s, here's our selection of 2009's overlooked films...

25. A Perfect Getaway

Jack Black & James Marsden Board ‘The D-Train’

10 February 2014 10:18 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jack Black is set to reunite with School Of Rock and Nacho Libre writer, Mike White. The two will be joined by X-men’s James Marsden for The D-train. The film will see Jack Black as the head of a school reunion committee who will stop at absolutely nothing to make sure his classes’ most popular student attends. That student will be played by Marsden, who has become a star of TV commercials. Nat Faxon and White will also star, presumably as two other ex students.

Directing the feature will be Jarred Paul and Andrew Mogel, the screenwriters of Yes Man. This will be their directorial debut. School Of Rock is still one of my favourite comedies after surprising me all those years ago, but that was helmed by Richard Linklater, a man with much more experience. Hopefully Paul and Mogel have been chosen well as the plot seems to write itself, »
