Does Interesting Casting Happen Anymore?

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway is not happy with the lack of imagination when it comes to casting…

With the big news on Friday (and I’m not talking about Penguin Awareness Day), you may have missed the story about the potential casting for the forthcoming Green Lantern movie. If you did miss it, you won’t be surprised by the names that are being touted for the role.

It was reported that Tom Cruise, Jake Gyllenhaal, Armie Hammer, Bradley Cooper, Joel McHale, and Ryan Reynolds were all in contention, with James Marsden later added to the list. Now, you can take this two ways; one, it’s meaningless speculation – what football supporters would call “paper talk” when a player is linked to their club – and the second just shows the paucity of ideas in Hollywood. You could put my mother in the room and she’d come up with those names. »

Paramount and CBS settle Star Trek: Axanar lawsuit

14 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paramount Pictures, CBS Studios and Axanar Productions have announced that they have finally come to a settlement on the controversial lawsuit against the crowd-funded Star Trek fan film Axanar, which will see producer Alex Peters agreeing to make “substantial changes” to his project in order to ensure that it and any future Star Trek productions comply with Paramount and CBS’ ‘Guidelines for Fan Films’ introduced last year.

“Paramount and CBS continue to be big believers in fan fiction and fan creativity,” reads the statement from Paramount and CBS (via The Wrap). “They encourage amateur filmmakers to showcase their passion for Star Trek. Paramount and CBS will not object to, or take legal action against, Star Trek fan productions that are non-professional, amateur, and otherwise meet the Guidelines, which can be found at http://www.startrek.com/fan-films. Paramount and CBS would like Star Trek fans, with their boundless creativity and passion, »

Star Trek Axanar Is Back in Development…Sort Of

20 January 2017 9:41 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

After a year of legal debates, an agreement has been reached that allows Axanar Productions to finally move ahead with filming the fan-project Star Trek: Axanar. However, the project will not be made in the way it was originally planned. Due to Paramount/CBS Guidelines for Fan Films, the delayed movie will be shortened to a half-hour and altered from the way it was previously intended.

Last year, Paramount and CBS put a stop to the many internet fan-made films and web series based on Star Trek. Their strict production guidelines crippled multiple fan-created projects, including Star Trek: Axanar, a planned feature length fan film that focuses on the Federation’s first war with the Klingons, and features Garth of Izar, a Trek character introduced in the classic Star Trek TV series (1966-1969) in the episode “Whom Gods Destroy”. The Axanar Productions team raised over $100,000 to produce a »

'Star Trek' Producers Settle Lawsuit Against Crowdfunded Film

20 January 2017 7:33 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Over a year after Star Trek's copyright holders engaged in a legal war with the sci-fi series' own fans over a crowdfunded, unofficial prequel film, the two sides in the infringement lawsuit announced Friday their battle will not head to a courtroom after agreeing upon a settlement.

In December 2015, Paramount Pictures and CBS Studios filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against producer Alec Peters over his planned film Axanar and its prequel Prelude to Axanar, which they claimed "used innumerable copyrighted elements of Star Trek, including its settings, characters, species, »

Newswire: The Star Trek fan film lawsuit has been settled

20 January 2017 2:31 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

After months of accusations, legal maneuvers, and increasingly strained “battle station” jokes, the long-brewing Star Trek fan film lawsuit has finally been settled. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Pictures, CBS Studios, Axanar Studios, and Alec Peters have all reached an agreement about Peters’ crowdfunded fan film Axanar, ending the need for the jury trial that was scheduled for later this month.

In the past, Paramount and CBS have turned something of a blind eye to amateur Star Trek productions, presumably on the grounds that they increase the fierce fan loyalty that keeps the franchise alive and healthy. Peters drew the companies’ attention, though, after raising more than a million dollars in crowdfunding money and shooting a professional-looking 20-minute proof of concept for his movie (based on an unseen but mentioned incident from an early Star Trek episode). What followed was a circuitous legal attempt to work out things like »

CBS, Paramount Settle Lawsuit Over 'Star Trek' Fan Film

Stand down from battle stations. Star Trek rights holders CBS and Paramount have seen the logic of settling a copyright suit against Alec Peters, who solicited money on crowdfunding sites and hired professionals to make a YouTube short and a script of a planned feature film focused on a fictional event — a Starfleet captain's victory in a war with the Klingon Empire — referenced in the original 1960s Gene Roddenberry television series. Thanks to the settlement, CBS and Paramount won't be going to trial on Stardate 47634.44, known to most as Jan. 31, 2017.

20 January 2017 12:03 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Miguel Ferrer, the talented character actor of over 40 films, has died of cancer at the age of 61. Ferrer appeared in the 1987 Paul Verhoeven film Robocop, and countless films and TV series since. He was cast in NCIS L.A. as assistant director Owen Granger back in 2012, opposite Chris O’Donnell and L.L. Cool J.

“Today, NCIS: Los Angeles lost a beloved family member,” showrunner R. Scott Gemmill said in a statement (via Deadline). “Miguel was a man of tremendous talent who had a powerful dramatic presence on screen, a wicked sense of humor, and a huge heart.  Our thoughts go out to his wife Lori, his sons, and his entire family.  He will be greatly missed.”

President Obama’s Favorite Movies and TV Shows in Office (Photos)

19 January 2017 4:12 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

President Barack Obama’s favorite movies and TV shows run the gamut from “The Wire” to “The Godfather” to “Game of Thrones” to “Star Trek” — and he’s kind of a sci-fi nerd, in the best way. President Obama is the first Pop Culture President. He’s got eclectic, at times even hipster-like, taste in movies, music and TV. We’ll overlook his mom jeans because he’s not afraid to hurl a diss at Drake in favor of Kendrick. And while his reading list this week with the New York Times is all well and good, we’d much rather binge watch his other. »
