Karl Urban replaces Michael C Hall in Pete's Dragon remake

19 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Karl Urban has joined the cast of Disney's Pete's Dragon remake.

The Star Trek actor replaces Michael C Hall in the project, The Wrap reports.

Hall had to step down from his unspecified role in the movie due to scheduling issues.

Robert Redford, Bryce Dallas Howard, Wes Bentley and newcomer Oakes Fegley will also feature in the remake of the 1977 film, which featured an animated dragon and live-action actors.

The new film is not expected to be a musical, and will use CGI to create the dragon.

Pete's Dragon follows the story of a young boy who escapes from his abusive adoptive parents with his pet dragon.

David Lowery (Ain't Them Bodies Saints) will direct the film, while Jim Whitaker (The Odd Life of Timothy Green) is set to produce. »

Emma Watson, best known as Harry Potter’s bookish best friend Hermione Granger, announced that she will be Disney’s next princess – Belle! The Brown University graduate will be bringing her enviable combination of brains and beauty to Bill Condon’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been an announcement about who will play the Beast to Emma’s “Beauty.”

Who will be the Beast? We went through all the working heartthrobs of Hollywood, and picked our top candidates for the role.

Chris Pine

Can he sing? Yes. Chris starred in the adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods. Age: 34 (10 years older than Emma) Known For: Star Trek, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit We asked you on Facebook and Twitter who you’d like to be Disney’s next prince. Chris Pine was the popular choice. Two other Chrises – Hemsworth and Evans – were very close behind in the votes. »

According to Deadline, Pine, Wiig, Hamm, and Schwartzman will join the 20+ returning cast members from Michael Showalter and David Wain’s 2001 Wet Hot American Summer movie. The four new faces will appear as recurring guest stars in Netflix’s eight-part series. Saturday Night Live alumnus and Bridesmaids star Wiig may appear as a counsellor from Camp Firewood’s rival Camp Tigerclaw, and Mad Men’s Hamm is rumored to be a secret spy. Schwartzman (from The Grand Budapest Hotel) will reportedly play the boys’ camp head counsellor, while Pine (of Star Trek and Into the Woods) has an as-of-yet-undefined role.

Molly Jackson: Choosing Everything

30 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

I spend way too much time on social media. I’m often lurking in the background, checking out what weird Internet gems people have found or created. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve seen this fandom day meme pop up throughout my social media feeds.

Based on the date chosen, it is possibly meant as an early April Fools’ joke but it still brought something to light. In every posting I saw of this meme, I saw fans stating they apparently needed to wear a rainbow of fandoms. In some cases, it seemed like people were asking permission just to show support for multiple fandoms. (The other complaint being they left out a ton of groups.)

This just boggles my mind. Who needs to choose one fandom?! Most geeks can fit in more than one. I have attended Firefly meetups, where more often than not everyone is talking »

Karl Urban Joins Pete's Dragon Remake

29 January 2015 11:00 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It would appear that Michael C. Hall is allergic to dragons. Actually, there isn’t a given reason why he’s decided to leave the new Pete’s Dragon film, but it means good news for Karl Urban fans as the Star Trek actor has stepped in to replace him.Ain’t Them Bodies Saints director David Lowery is busy putting the new version of the story together, working from a script he co-wrote with Toby Halbrooks. It’s Disney’s latest attempt to conjure a fresh take on one of its catalogue titles, this time the live-action/animation-blend 1977 film which saw a young lad befriend a magical dragon. The new movie will apparently deviate from the original, not by having the dragon turn evil and go all Smaug on the local town, but by stripping out the musical element and injecting an environmental message into the story.Robert Redford, »

For & Against: Are you onboard for the all-female Ghostbusters?

28 January 2015 7:51 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

After months of speculation, Paul Feig's all-female Ghostbusters has unveiled its cast with Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon tasked with ridding New York of spooks.

But this movie has been a divisive one from the moment it was announced last summer. The idea of a film without the original quartet irked many, especially with Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson eager to reprise their roles. Digital Spy movies editor Simon Reynolds and TV editor Morgan Jeffery weigh up the two sides of the debate below.

Paul Feig (@paulfeig) January 27, 2015

Maybe it's because I've never held Ghostbusters in quite as high regard as other '80s classics (I'm more of Back to the Future geek myself), but the idea of rebooting Ghostbusters has quickly won me over.

Chris Pine, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie and the apocalypse: 'Z for Zachariah'

27 January 2015 10:02 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City, Utah -- "Z for Zachariah" director Craig Zobel instructed one of his three actors Chris Pine to try multiple scene takes, to be "mean, meaner, creepier." Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor had to "delicately" expose his character's insecurities through a mention of race. And, believe it, "Wolf of Wall Street" actress Margot Robbie had to get awfully awkward for her role. This is all to say: playing one of the last people on the planet to survive after an apocalyptic event is no walk in the park. Robbie's Ann thinks she's Earth's sole survivor until a scientist Loomis (Ejiofor) stumbles into her scene. The two characters deal with "the delicateness of having to engage with people, knowing... that these are the only people you'll have to deal with forever" until Pine's younger, whiter, Christian-mischievous Caleb comes on the scene. "I play the antagonist, [but] it was more interesting to play »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Finders Keepers’

27 January 2015 6:17 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If Flannery O’Connor had ever abandoned writing to try her hand at Southern-fried reality TV, the result would probably look something like Bryan Carberry and Clay Tweel’s “Finders Keepers.” At times gleefully indulging in the absurdities of one of the decade’s weirdest man-bites-dog news stories — involving a pitched legal battle over ownership of a severed leg — and at others halting the laughter in its tracks to dig deep into the pain and struggles of the real people involved, this hysterical, insightful and genuinely empathetic documentary could easily prove a specialty hit with the right handling.

Finders Keepers” is not the first doc to attempt to restore three-dimensional humanity to someone who had essentially become a human meme — Ben Steinbauer’s “Winnebago Man” is a worthy predecessor — but it’s unusually skillful in balancing its rubberneck entertainment value with warm, wise perspective. As one interviewee notes, “It’s a funny story, »

Hasbro to Develop Big Screen Adaptation of Gobots?

27 January 2015 6:02 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The GoBots are a staple of my childhood. I think I own more GoBots toys than I did Transformers because they were cheaper. With all of the 1980s cartoon and toy properties being developed as feature films, I guess it was only a matter of time before GoBots joined in on the party. 

The property never really caught on like Transformers did, so it eventually died off. One thing that GoBots and Transformers had in common, though, was the voice of Peter Cullen, who played both  Optimus Prime and Tank. Now, thanks to TFW2005, we've learned that Hasbro recently filed documents to the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a new GoBots trademark under "distribution of motion pictures, ongoing television programs" and "Toys, games and playthings, namely, toy vehicles and accessories for use therewith."

They are obviously interested in resurrecting the GoBots, but who knows if anything will actually happen with it. »

X-Men TV series in development at Fox

27 January 2015 12:57 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fox are working on a live action TV series for the X-Men, with Star Trek and 24 talent involved…

Here’s an exciting one – with Marvel Studios and Warner Bros. already boasting multiple comic-based television shows, Fox has finally decided to follow suit. Although the Fox network is Gotham’s home in the USA, the network is now teaming up with their big brother - the 20th Century Fox production company - to utilise their X-Men production rights for a new show based around the Marvel mutant-based property.

To make this series a reality, Fox has enlisted Evan Katz and Manny Coto, producers from the currently-stagnating (though maybe not for long) series 24. Joining them will be Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne, relative newcomers to the screenwriting world who have already nabbed the gig to co-write the sequel to Star Trek Into Darkness, too. All four of these behind-the-scenes staff will share a ‘created by’ credit, »
