Victoria Strouse is penning the script.
Plot details are unknown other than that the film is set in the world of the classic novel with Tinker Bell in full focus.
The project is still in development and there is no timeline for it to go into production.
It’s yet another project based on a classic Disney animated pic that is being given the live-action treatment. Disney has already seen live-action versions of “Alice in Wonderland,” Sleeping Beauty story “Maleficent” and “Cinderella” become box-office hits and sees this as a formula that works as well as a comicbook pic.
The studios has “Beauty and the Beast” in production and is also developing »

2012: the year the movie universe sparked, Universal struggled, and young adult adaptations really took off...
The big blockbusters of summer 2011 were the ones that followed fairly straightforward rules. The majority of them were sequels in linear movie franchises - Harry Potter, Transformers, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Fast & Furious - and it felt for the most part like a template was being followed.
Sure, there were surprises. Bridesmaids broke through and proved to be a massive R-rated hit. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, came through unscathed - and in fine shape - from its reboot, whilst Jj Abrams took us temporarily back to the 1980s with Super 8. But other than that, the pattern was set: the big, pre-ordained films took the lion's share of the cash, and regular sequels were the order of the day.
The signs of change were there in 2011, of course. Thor was a bigger hit than most were expecting, »
It's here, dance fans! That huge semi-annual televised dance party is back! It's the "Dancing with the Stars" Season 20 Finale-as the giant letters across the stage continually remind us. There's lots of activity as all of the season's contestants return to the ballroom, but it's not all fun and games: the final 3 couples still work really hard with one more round of competition.
After their performances last night, the final 3 were given their dance styles for the 24-hour fusion challenge. Noah and Sharna's cha-cha/argentine tango mashup uses phrases and sequences we've seen earlier in the season, and it looks like it. Same with Rumer and Val's fox-trot/paso doble fusion, as lovely as it is. I imagine Riker and Allison's salsa/quickstep also uses sequences they have done previously, but it doesn't seem as obvious to me. Perhaps they just hide it better. But all three couples dance beautifully, »

"Lurid, lush, and ludicrous," Matteo Garrone's Tale of Tales with Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones and John C. Reilly "works from Giambattista Basile’s 17th century collection of fairy tales of the same name," notes Blake Williams. David Jenkins suggests it's "a gaudy, bawdy descendent to Pier Paolo Pasolini’s trilogy of life." And the Guardian's Peter Bradshaw sees traces of Walerian Borowczyk’s Immoral Tales. "But there’s also a bit of John Boorman’s Excalibur, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Blackadder, The Company of Wolves, the Tenniel illustrations for Alice in Wonderland… and Shrek." We've got more reviews and clips. » - David Hudson »
Though she’ll be venturing to the small screen for HBO’s adaptation of Big Little Lies, Oscar winner Nicole Kidman is simultaneously lining up some very promising gigs in Hollywood. Today brings word that she’ll reteam with Rabbit Hole director John Cameron Mitchell for How to Talk to Girls at Parties, an adaptation of the Neil Gaiman short story.
Elle Fanning was already set to lead a cast that now also includes The Affair‘s Ruth Wilson and Matt Lucas (Alice in Wonderland). The strange-sounding project (I mean, this is Gaiman we’re talking about) will follow an alien tourist (Fanning) who breaks away from her tour group to explore the most dangerous place in the universe: the London suburb of Croydon, and a punk schoolboy who uses music and art as a way to escape the doldrums of his daily existence.
The soundtrack is said to be »

Nicole Kidman is in advanced talks to join Elle Fanning ("Maleficent"), Ruth Wilson ("Luther") and Matt Lucas ("Alice in Wonderland") in John Cameron Mitchell’s anticipated rom-com "How to Talk to Girls at Parties" at See-Saw.
Based on Neil Gaiman's short story, Fanning plays an alien touring the galaxy who breaks away from her group and meets two young inhabitants of the most dangerous place in the universe: the London suburb of Croydon.
Mitchell ("Hedwig and the Angry Inch") and Philippa Goslett ("Little Ashes") have worked on the screenplay and filming begins this Fall in the UK. Howard Gertler, Iain Canning and Emile Sherman will produce.
The production is also in talks with major musicians to score the film while some of the cast are also due to lend their voices to songs.

From anime to pitch-black thrillers, here's our pick of the underappreciated movies of 1987...
Sometimes, the challenge with these lists isn't just what to put in, but what to leave out. We loved Princess Bride, but with a decent showing at the box office and a huge cult following, isn't it a bit too popular to be described as underappreciated? Likewise Joe Dante's Innerspace, a fabulously geeky, comic reworking of the 60s sci-fi flick, Fantastic Voyage.
What we've gone for instead is a mix of genre fare, dramas and animated films that may have garnered a cult following since, but didn't do well either critically or financially at the time of release. Some of the movies on our list just about made their money back, but none made anything close to the sort of returns enjoyed by the likes of 1987's biggest films - Three Men And A Baby, Fatal Attraction »
Based on a short story by Neil Gaiman (“Coraline”) from his collection “Fragile Things,” the screenplay has been written by Philippa Goslett (“Little Ashes”) with John Cameron Mitchell. The film is in the spirit of “Romeo and Juliet,” but instead of Montagues and Capulets, it is punks and aliens. This is the story of the birth of punk, the exuberance of first love, and the universe’s greatest mystery of all: how to talk to girls at parties.

Golden Globe-winner Ruth Wilson (The Affair) and Matt Lucas (Alice in Wonderland) are also set to join the previously announced Elle Fanning (Maleficent) on the buzzy package, which has been newly boarded by production outfit See-Saw and sales firm HanWay, which will launch the project in Cannes this week.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch director Mitchell and Philippa Goslett (Little Ashes) have written the screenplay, which is adapted from Neil Gaiman’s short story of the same name in which an alien (Fanning) touring the galaxy breaks away from her group and meets two young inhabitants of the most dangerous place in the universe: the London »

Man o’ man, ghouls, look who just dropped by the Crypt o’ Xiii! None other than virtuoso producer/die-rector Pearry Teo! Welcome Pearry, why not have a seat right here on this coff… er, I mean sofa, and let’s get down to the horror biz and discuss your latest production Strange Blood!
Famous Monsters. So, what attracted you to ol’ Strange Blood?
Pearry Teo. I was very tired of the generic horror movies out there today. I think there have been too many cliché-ridden movies and I wanted to do something as an homage to the great horror movies like The Fly. I enjoyed the pacing of that movie, where it’s a slow burn rather than trying to cram gore into our mouths. I always wanted to do a horror movie where women are not portrayed as sex objects or running away from a killer. In fact, Gemma »
FilmNation will launch “Silencio” at the upcoming 2015 Cannes Marché du Film.

She nabbed her prince, settled down to live happily ever after, and just waltzed past an important box office milestone.
“Cinderella” crossed the $500 million mark at the global box office, Walt Disney Studios said Wednesday. Produced for $95 million, the fantasy romance is part of the company’s strategy to mine its catalog of animated classics for fresh live-action family films. In coming years, Disney will adhere to the formula, and it’s moving forward with live action versions of “The Jungle Book,” “Dumbo,” “Mulan,” “Pinocchio” and “Beauty and the Beast.”
“Cinderella” has taken in nearly $195 million domestically, while it has made more than $308 million internationally. Those are impressive numbers, although they pale in comparison to “Maleficent’s” $758.4 million global bounty or “Alice in Wonderland’s” $1 billion haul; both of those movies similarly used animated films as jumping off points.
