James Gunn talks about Guardians of the Galaxy 2

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the recent news that Awesome Mix Vol. 1 would be released on special edition cassette next month and Guardians of the Galaxy becoming the third highest grossing Marvel movie (as well as the highest grossing domestic release of 2014), it must be pretty good to be James Gunn right now.

But how is he celebrating the success? By writing the sequel.

“I spent all day on August 1st, the day the first movie was released, writing Guardians 2,” he told Variety. “I was so excited about it and I was finally able to let go of the last one and begin the second one. I always saw this as a universe, not just as one story.”

He also gave a scoop on what we can expect from Guardians of the Galaxy 2, “It’s going to be a really surprising open. What happens is all the characters are killed in the first 10 minutes, »

Adam McKay Planning to Make 'Step Brothers 2' But Not Very Soon

20 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Considering the fact that Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues didn't quite live up to the 10 years of waiting fans had to do in order to see it hit the big screen, it's probably a safe bet that director Adam McKay won't be heading back into sequel territory again anytime soon. And that's exactly right, but that doesn't mean the comedy filmmaker doesn't have plans to return to one of his more revered comedies. Collider recently sat down with McKay for a chat and asked about the potential for a sequel to the 2008 comedy Step Brothers starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, and it's further along than you might have thought. When asked about whether or not Step Brothers 2 would happen, McKay said: “We have a whole story, an outline, that we’re happy with. We were ready to go, and you know the story of [how] we got the call on Anchorman 2. »

The Reason Why Step Brothers 2 Will Almost Certainly Happen At Some Point

20 October 2014 6:46 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Adam McKay has confirmed that plans are still afoot for Step Brothers 2 - but he has warned that it might take some time for it to actually materialize. Working with the original film.s stars, Will Ferrell and John C Reilly, McKay had originally intended for the comedy sequel to be released before Anchorman 2. But Paramount then warmed to the idea of the Channel 4 news team.s reunion, and Step Brothers 2 was put on the back burner as a result. But while the project has been long delayed, McKay hasn.t forgotten about it, and he has now told Collider that the trio has an entire outline already penned and ready. Said the director, "We have a whole story, an outline that we.re happy with. We were ready to go, and you know the story of [how] we got the call on Anchorman 2." Despite obviously being happy »

Adam McKay Says Uptown Saturday Night Isn’t Happening; The Big Short Is Next But Step Brothers 2 Could Happen in a Few Years

20 October 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Adam McKay is certainly one of the most talented people working in the comedy genre today, with a career that goes back to his days as head writer on SNL and includes writing and directing evergreen comedies like Anchorman, Talladega Nights, and Step Brothers.  Recently, though, McKay has shown an ambitiousness that sees him branching out into different avenues.  He tackled his first sequel with the absurdly funny Anchorman 2, he worked with collaborator Paul Rudd to rewrite Marvel Studios’ upcoming superhero film Ant-Man, and his next film may seem him taking on dramatic material. Steve recently sat down with McKay in anticipation of the upcoming short film series We the Economy: 20 Short Films You Can’t Afford to Miss, and during the course of their conversation he provided updates on a number of upcoming projects.  He revealed that his Uptown Saturday Night remake is not going forward, but said »

Adam McKay on 'More Aggressive' & 'Funny' Rewrites on 'Ant-Man'

20 October 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Right now Marvel Studios is in production on what could be their first shaky release with the Phase Three title Ant-Man. The film was once slated to be directed by Edgar Wright, but some creative disagreements behind the scenes saw him depart the project just weeks before shooting, forcing Marvel to hire Peyton Reed (Yes Man) as a replacement. But before Reed came on board, Anchorman and Step Brothers director Adam McKay was courted for the director's chair, and while he didn't end up taking the job, he was hired to rewrite the script. And now he's opened up about what changes he made to the Marvel script. More below! Speaking with Collider, McKay called his work on the script a "giant rewrite" but still says that Wright's original script was "really good." We're not sure why it would require a big rewrite if that was the case, but that's »

Guardians of the Galaxy is now Marvel’s third highest-grossing film

19 October 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel Studios’ space opera Guardians of the Galaxy continues to do well in China, and has now become Marvel’s third highest-grossing film behind The Avengers and Iron Man 3, surpassing this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the worldwide box office.

Guardians has now grossed $733 million worldwide, placing it in fourth place at the 2014 box office, behind X-Men: Days of Future Past, Maleficent and Transformers: Age of Extinction. It definitely stands a chance now of passing both Days of Future Past and Maleficent, which have grossed $746M and $757M domestically.

So much for the titular group of outlaws-turned-heroes being a “risky” bet for the studio, eh?

Guardians of the Galaxy sees Gunn directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) as Groot, »

Adam McKay And Paul Rudd Gave Ant-Man A “Giant” Rewrite

17 October 2014 6:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Early this year, Marvel’s Ant-Man hit a massive roadblock when Edgar Wright, who had been attached to the project for nearly a decade, suddenly left. His departure caused a massive and heavily publicized rift in the fan community, and led to a long search for a new director. Eventually, Bring it On and Down with Love helmer Peyton Reed took the reigns, but he wasn’t the first one approached for the gig.

Step Brothers and Anchorman director Adam McKay went so far as to enter negotiations with Marvel for the director’s chair, but eventually passed and decided to stick around to help rewrite Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish’s original script instead.

McKay recently opened up to Collider about his involvement with Ant-Man, what the writing process was like, and how much of Wright’s original work remains intact. On how he even became involved in the first place, »

Paul Rudd Helped Adam McKay Rewrite ‘Ant-Man’

17 October 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

When Edgar Wright left Marvel’s Ant-Man, the amount of speculation and discussion was crazy. Eventually, Peyton Reed was hired as the director after a rewrite by none other than Adam McKay. McKay, a big comic book fan, is best known for crazy comedies like Anchorman and Step Brothers, so him coming on to the film […]

Adam McKay Talks Rewriting Ant-man with Paul Rudd; Reveals They Added “a Giant Action Sequence”, Made the Film Bigger and “a Little More Aggressive”

17 October 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While Ant-Man was one of the first feature film projects that Marvel Studios began developing, it went through some rather dramatic changes just months before finally starting production this summer.  Filmmaker Edgar Wright had been developing the movie for years, writing the screenplay with Joe Cornish and even casting the majority of the roles, but he left the project a few months before production over creative differences with Marvel.  The studio worked quickly to keep the project together and eventually signed Peyton Reed to direct, but before that Anchorman and Step Brothers director Adam McKay briefly flirted with the director’s chair.  While McKay subsequently opted not to take the helm, he did agree to come onboard as a screenwriter, fine tuning the script in the months leading up to the start of filming. Steve recently spoke with McKay in anticipation of the upcoming short film series We the Economy: »

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy hits $700 million worldwide

16 October 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to its strong performance in China, Marvel’s space opera Guardians of the Galaxy has now passed the $700 million mark at the global box-office, with the Phase Two film currently just shy of The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s haul of $707.9 million with $705.1 million to date. It looks certain now that Guardians will overtake Spider-Man and fellow McU release Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($713.9 million), while X-Men: Days of Future Past’s $747.9 million is still a possibility. Either way it’s a superb result for Marvel and its “risky” little-known property…

Guardians of the Galaxy sees Gunn directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) as Groot, Benicio Del Toro (Sin City) as The Collector, Lee Pace (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug »

Guardians of the Galaxy renamed to “Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team” in China

8 October 2014 2:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s not unusual for China or other Asian countries to change the names of popular movies and, more often than not, they end up being funnier or more apt than the original English titles. It was announced by James Gunn via Twitter that Guardians of the Galaxy is no exception to the rule and has been renamed Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team for its Chinese release.

Here’s the tweet:

星際異攻隊 – that is, Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team -opens Friday in China! pic.twitter.com/9XpSoxqrAU

James Gunn (@JamesGunn) October 6, 2014

However, some have noted over at Reddit that this could actually be the Taiwanese title and the poster in Gunn’s tweet is using traditional Chinese letters rather than simplified ones, which is a big deal when it comes to translation. Should that be the case, the title is actually Interstellar Special Ability Team or Interstellar Different Commandos. Both of which »

Guardians of the Galaxy overtakes Thor: The Dark World to become Marvel’s fourth-highest grossing movie worldwide

4 October 2014 3:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last weekend Guardians of the Galaxy overtook the domestic box office take of 2008’s Iron Man ($318.3 million) – not to mention fellow franchise starters Transformers ($319.1 million) and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone ($317.6 million) and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring ($314.2 million) – and now the film has climbed above Thor: The Dark World globally to become the fourth-biggest earner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Guardians is currently sitting on $645.4 million worldwide, and with the film due to open in China next weekend, it surely has a good chance of reaching the $714.1 million laid down by Captain America: The Winter Soldier earlier in the year.

Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) as Groot, »

A formidable comedy trifecta is taking shape for a new comedy film.  Gary Sanchez Productions, Point Grey Pictures, and Good Universe announced today that they have acquired an untitled comedy pitch from actor/writer Ben Schwartz (House of Lies, Parks and Recreation), with Seth Rogen attached to star and Anchorman and Step Brothers helmer Adam McKay onboard to direct.  Schwartz will also co-star in the film, with Rogen noting, “Every two thousand years the planets of our galaxy align in a perfect line that funnels the cosmic energies of the universe to flow into one perfect comedic collaboration.

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

After becoming Marvel’s biggest-franchise starter at the global box-office by overtaking the haul of 2008’s Iron Man earlier in the week, James Gunn’s space opera Guardians of the Galaxy has now become the first release of 2014 to hit $300 million domestically and has also crossed the $600 million mark worldwide.
