16 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Paramount Pictures has acquired screen rights to After, a novel by first-time author Anna Todd that has been the breakout hit of Wattpad, the online community of readers and writers where books are published a chapter at a time. Todd’s novel originated as a serialized three-part series that Toronto-based Wattpad says has accumulated more than 1 billion reads.

Adam Sandler Netflix Deal Won’t End Relationship With Sony

6 October 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Adam Sandler’s landmark deal to produce and star in four feature films for Netflix will not fundamentally alter his longstanding relationship with Sony Pictures.

The 4 Movies Adam Sandler Absolutely Should Make for Netflix

3 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

News broke this week that Adam Sandler, the clown prince of Hollywood who has seen recent big screen efforts like "Blended" fail terribly at the box office, signed a four-picture deal with Netflix, you know, that thing that steals your entire weekend because you decided it was a good idea to re-watch all of "The X-Files." It was something of a groundbreaking move, considering that Netflix has largely been the home of older films and, more recently, original television programming. This is a big step in whatever grand designs Netflix has, a truly expensive and envelope-pushing endeavor that raises a number of provocative questions.

Perhaps the biggest and loudest question, of course, is: what will the movies be?

We think we have some pretty good ideas, things that would make his collaboration with Netflix as innovative on a creative side as it is on a business one (keep in mind »

Spotlight on the Stars: Adam Sandler

1 October 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to sort of go back to the start of the series and take a look at someone who doesn’t get the respect that they deserve from the masses. Today, that person is Adam Sandler, one of the kings of comedy who also has a flair for drama when he decides to go that route. He’s a huge titan of studio comedy, for sure, but he’s got a load of talent for when he chooses to get serious. The laughs have shot him to the A-list, but when he’s gone for depth and emotion, he’s shown that he’s got some acting chops as well. He’s rather underrated overall, so a spotlight today is definitely in the cards for him. Sandler got his start towards the A-list through television when he was cast on Saturday Night Live »

Why ABC handed Thursdays to Shonda Rhimes: Because she gets it

25 September 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Why ABC handed Thursdays to Shonda Rhimes: Because she gets it Shonda Rhimes and her “ShondaLand” gets that social media is a key ingredient in promoting your show. But that’s not all. As Alexander Hardy notes, "With a decade of primetime hits and misses under her belt, Rhimes is a master at creating bustling content, hooking viewers emotionally, and assaulting the senses with just the right amounts the saccharine and the stomach turning. Her characters—whether gladiators, doctors, or otherwise—are cocktails made with equal parts ridiculous, despicable, and histrionic.” Plus: How much TV can Shonda conquer?, how Shonda Rhimes revolutionized gay characters, and play the “Tgit” drinking game. “Scandal” is back: Here are 4 hopes for new season Season 4 needs to have more Olivia, less Olitz. Plus: “Scandal” stars tease Season 4, how to talk like a Gladiator, how to design an Olivia Pope-style living room, and 10 cryptic teases for the new season. »

Bob Odenkirk prepares to cut off Gillian Jacobs' toes on 'Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories'

25 September 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

If an actor from Breaking Bad and another from Community agreed to guest-star on your chilling and bizarre anthology/comedy series on Adult Swim, what you would have them do?

Well, if you are Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, and your show is called Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories, you make Bob Odenkirk a podiatrist named Dr. Stork who runs a successful toe-removal practice that a sunny patient (Gillian Jacobs) visits when she “doesn’t want” her toes anymore. I mean, who does?

Eric Wareheim Talks Tim & Eric’S Bedtime Stories, Using Comedy to Cope With the Horror of the World

18 September 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I wasn't sure what to expect from Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories.  I had seen Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim's previous show (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) and I've been fond of their humor for a long time, but I wasn't sure if this was just going to be another extension of the Awesome Show aesthetic.  It isn't.  Bedtime Stories is a much more cinematic effort, and it's brutally dark (yet amazingly funny).  With guest stars ranging from Zach Galifianakis to Gillian Jacobs to Bob Odenkirk, the show has a lot of variety, but also retains Heidecker and Wareheim's unique voice.  The three episodes I screened may not be for everybody, but those who connect with them will find them utterly sublime. I recently hopped on the phone with Eric Wareheim to talk about the show, how it differs from Awesome Show, and the brutality of life itself. »

Universal Takes 'Clifford the Big Red Dog' Out to Poop in April 2016

1 August 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's been two years since it was announced that Universal Pictures was teaming up with Despicable Me animation studio Illumination Entertainment for a live-action/animated hybrid adaptation of Scholastic's giant canine, Clifford the Big Red Dog. Now word comes from Universal that they will take the humongous dog out for a walk in theaters on April 8th, 2016. Still no plot details, voice cast or director has been revealed for the project, but when the project was announced in 2012, Bedtime Stories, Race to Witch Mountain and The Sorcerer's Apprentice scribe Matt Lopez was writing the script. We're not sure if that's still the case, but nonetheless, Clifford is on his way for every family to enjoy in theaters. »

A Look Inside the Weird World of Tim and Eric’s Abso Lutely Prods.

11 June 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As film majors at Temple U., future Abso Lutely Prods. co-founders Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (aka “Tim and Eric”) were already on the fast track to becoming a comic force with which to be reckoned.

“We kind of bonded, started making videos together, and made up these fake funny bands,” recalls Wareheim, biting into a sandwich on lunch break. “On the weekends, Tim and I would get cameras and just fuck around and use the film school as a place to learn how to edit and all that kind of silly stuff. Our school was very serious, but Tim and I didn’t do the normal thing. Everyone else would make these projects on how to be an art director or whatever and Tim and I would make a video making fun of those people. And the professors gave us an A. They loved it.”

The two graduated, came to L. »

5 Reasons Why Adam Sandler Is a Good Role Model

27 May 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Adam Sandler is a good role model. Yeah, I said it. Not necessarily for children, although given Sandler’s 10 Kids Choice Awards, your kids probably already look up to him. The people who should be taking some life lessons from ole Happy Gilmore are parents.  Here’s why: Sandler’s more recent movies deliver positive messages to parents. In Blended, Sandler and Drew Barrymore play loving parents who don’t agree on much except that parents need to show up and be committed to their kids – that same message is delivered in a cruder way with last year’s That’s My Boy. Click, Jack and Jill and Bedtime Stories are also about the importance of spending time with family. Sandler doesn’t take his work home, he takes his home to work....

Box Office: ‘Neighbors’ Proves R-Rated Comedies Are Summertime Gold

12 May 2014 4:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Raunch sells.

Case in point: Universal’s “Neighbors,”the dirty-minded comedy starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, that debuted to a glittering $49 million domestically this past weekend.

“It’s escapism, and when it works — and ‘Neighbors’ worked — comedies are just a great way for people to escape,” said Nikki Rocco, head of domestic distribution for Universal.

Audiences looking for a laugh helped drive “Neighbors” to the fifth-largest Stateside opening for an R-rated comedy in history. It’s a sterling result that augurs well for a summer that promises to rip the envelope of good taste to shreds thanks to “22 Jump Street,” “Sex Tape,” “Tammy” and a steady stream of films aimed at adults and teens hungry for gross-out gags.

“Comedies used to stay out of the summer because of all the tentpole movies,” said Richard Brener, president of production at New Line, which will release “Tammy.” “Now they’re tentpole movies themselves. »

Salma Hayek Accepts An Invitation To Seth Rogen And Evan Goldberg's Sausage Party

9 April 2014 9:31 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There was once a time when Adam Sandler was regarded as a fresh, hip comedic talent. Those days were a long time ago, and now all that's left is the Sandler that everyone knows and loathes. The Adam Sandler that has Blended scheduled for release on a weekend that would have made sense back in 1998. The Adam Sandler that somehow found time to make movies like Reign Over Me while signing a contract to star in Bedtime Stories. It only took a couple false moves to put Adam Sandler on the list of "Comedians Who Sold Out", and inspire the still developing "Sandler Curse". Deadline ran a piece that not only suggests Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg may be heading the same way as Mr. Sandler, and just like their predecessor did with Grown Ups before them, they're taking Salma Hayek along for the ride. Ms. Hayek has joined the »

Josh Gad & Kevin James Joining Adam Sandler for 'Pixels' Adventure

26 February 2014 12:27 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Way back in 2010, Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison production banner picked up the short film Pixels in order to adapt it into a big screen adventure focusing on a slew of 1980s video game characters like Space Invaders attacking New York City, leaving four champion arcade gamers are called back into action to save the world. At one time, Seth Gordon was eyeing the project as a directing gig with Sandler in the lead, but as we learned last summer, it will be Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Home Alone director Chris Columbus at the helm. Now we have word on two cast members who will be joining Sandler. If you need a refresher, here's the original, cool short film Pixels from Patrick Jean: Columbia Pictures is behind the film with a script from Sandler collaborator Tim Herlihy (Bedtime Stories, Big Daddy) and rewritten by Timothy Dowling (Role Models, »
