ABC has put in development True Love, an hourlong romantic dramedy from Brooklyn Girls author Gemma Burgess, The Proposal helmer Anne Fletcher and Fabrik Entertainment. The anthology project from ABC Studios is very loosely inspired by classic fairy tales and subverted with a provocative and authentic post-feminist twist that believes you can stand on your own and still want to be swept off your feet. Fletcher is attached to direct the potential pilot and will serve as… »
Look how far Sandra Bullock has come! When fans think of the A-list actress, roles in The Blind Side, The Proposal and Miss Congeniality may quickly come to mind.

News sat down with the actress known on the series at Tess McGill where her love for Hollywood was totally visible. "It's amazing.

It's a job »

It's been eight years for viewers and a career lifetime for Amy Adams since "Enchanted" made Disney magic in 2007. There's been talk of a sequel for a while now, but not much solid intel. However, Collider recently shared some cool details on what is apparently not just being called "Enchanted 2."
Here's their scoop:
We've heard rumblings over the years of minimal movement on Enchanted 2, but now sources tell us that the project is seriously heating up over at the Mouse House. Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) remains attached to direct, and the studio is now in the process of punching up the script with the hopes that it will be in greenlight-ready shape very soon. What's more, we know the current working title: Disenchanted."
"Disenchanted"! That could be interesting. Collider added that it's not clear which actors might be returning for the sequel. Could it ever work without Amy Adams? »

Enchanted 2 will still happen, according to Collider, though will be known under a different name.
The 2007 movie Enchanted was really well received. Starring Amy Adams, James Marsden and Patrick Dempsey, the film, which revolved around a princess who crosses from the animated world into the real world, featured some fantastic songs, a great story and a huge heart. Enchanted 2 has been in the works at Disney for ages, but it had gone off the boil very recently.
The great news is that the film is still being planned with The Proposal‘s Anne Fletcher directing. The film will now be known as Disenchanted, and Jessie Nelson (Fred Claus) will be re-doing the screenplay.
We don’t know a lot more than that, but it’s great »

Well, we presumed this one had pretty much died a death. As much fun as we had with 2007's Enchanted, the hugely entertaining Disney movie where Amy Adam's Princess crosses over from animation to live action, it's been a while since we heard anything of the sequel. There had been talk last year of a new script being ordered, but nothing seemed to come of it.
When the film was first talked about around five years ago, The Proposal's Anne Fletcher was taking over from Tarzan's Kevin Lima as director. Amy Adams was expected to return, as were fellow cast members Patrick Dempsey and James Marsden (although the fate of Susan Sarandon's villain was unclear).
It's now being reported that Disney has reawakened its interest in Enchanted 2, which is now »
Eight years ago, Disney had a hit on their hands with Enchanted, which took many of their fairy tale/princess tropes and put a clever spin on them on the way to box office success. The Mouse had plans on moving forward with a sequel, attaching Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) to direct, but let's face it... it's 2015 and there hasn't been much movement on this follow-up actually happening. Amy Adams had expressed... Read More »

Enchanted was a big win for Disney back in 2007. On a conservative – well, for House of Mouse – budget of $85 million, the fairytale caper went on to haul in $340 million worldwide. Naturally, a sequel entered development shortly afterwards as the studio had outlines for an entire franchise already in place. As is often the case with follow-ups though, the trickiness of nailing down the right story has seen the project languish in development hell since 2010.
However, there’s still hope for the film, as Collider recently scored intel on the sequel’s current status, telling us that it’s now in the works as Disenchanted. Quite a provocative move by the Mouse House, as it certainly suggests that the reality of a happy-ever-after ending isn’t always sunny. The first film repurposed the typical fairy tale archetypes and relocated them to modern day New York City, with an animated Disney princess »

A new report suggests that Disney Pictures is moving forward again on an "Enchanted" sequel and even has a new title for it - "Disenchanted".
Collider broke the news, saying that's the working title for the film which is now "in the process of punching up the script with the hopes that it will be in greenlight-ready shape very soon."
It has been eight years since the first film and the studio has been trying to get a follow-up going for a good portion of that period.
At last report J. David Stem and David N. Weiss ("Shrek 2," "The Smurfs") had signed on to write the screenplay and Anne Fletcher ("The Proposal") remains attached to direct. No word if Amy Adams, James Marsden or Susan Sarandon would return. »

"The Golden Girls," the superhero quartet of choice for people who found "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" not bad-ass enough, turns 30 years old today. The Miami-set series enjoys a huge following even today, which is no surprise when you consider that the show's four lead actresses all won Emmys for their work. To celebrate their awesomeness, let's pick the Golden Girls' best non-"Golden Girls" moments. Rue McClanahan in "Starship Troopers" Look at Rue McClanahan owning that Blanche Devereux sauciness and absolutely terrifying Casper Van Dien and Denise Richards in "Starship Troopers." Her Karl Lagerfeld-like intensity is fantastic. Even Robert Heinlein couldn't have predicted how welcome McClanahan's presence would be in a sci-fi caper. Estelle Getty talks feminism on "The Joan Rivers Show" Since everyone's bemoaning that Vanity Fair photo of the all-male late night hosting crew, let's take a moment to remember how kickass Joan Rivers' show was. »

Funny Or Die has always produced topical content, but their latest short might just be one of their most spot-on satires yet, mostly due to the direct involvement of some of the industry's leading female directors. Read More: No More Excuses: Hollywood Needs to Hire More Female Directors Entitled "The Real Reason Women Don't Direct More Action Movies," the two-and-a-half-minute web video depicts a group of talented filmmakers -- Catherine Hardwicke ("Twilight"), Shira Piven ("Welcome to Me"), Nisha Ganatra ("Transparent"), Nicole Holofcener ("Enough Said") and Anne Fletcher ("The Proposal") -- who can't seem to land a directing gig for the upcoming action sequel, "Super Cops 4." In a pitch meeting for the job with a trio of immature businessmen, including "New Girl" star Max Greenfield, the women all provide sensible answers to their ludicrous questions ("'Twilight made $400 million »

Sophia Vergara and Reece Witherspoon in Hot Pursuit
The trailers for this new comedy from Warner Brothers did promised big things, and I giggled all of the way through each one of them, but I didn’t once laughduring Hot Pursuit.
The plot of Hot Pursuit is simple. Reese Witherspoon is a disgraced policewoman working the evidence room at her local precinct, who, following a few years being punished in the bowels of a San Antonio police department following a botched arrest, is given a shot at the bigger time by escorting Sophia Vergara’s crime witness across state to Dallas. As you may expect, things don’t go according to plan, and much hilarity ensues. Or so you’d hope from this mid-budgeted comedy fare from seasoned comedy helmer Anne Fletcher, »

We all remember when Sandra Bullock brought home her well-deserved Oscar for her moving performance in 2009's The Blind Side. She has the power to make us cry, like in The Lake House, and make us laugh, like in The Proposal.

Let's celebrate her latest flick Minions by taking a look back at this versatile actress' best roles in her illustrious career. Watch Minions July 10.

To celebrate the upcoming home entertainment release of The Voices – which is out in the UK on Monday, July 13th – we’ve got a limited edition Zavvi exclusive Blu-ray steelbook to give away to one lucky reader…
Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) is an affable singleton who works on the factory floor at a bathtub factory, ever eager to get along with his co-workers, especially Fiona (Gemma Arterton) and Lisa (Anna Kendrick) from accounts.

When one night he accidentally kills Fiona, Jerry hastily covers his tracks, under the strict advice of the subversive Mr. Whiskers. But Jerry is already beyond the reach of his well-meaning psychiatrist Dr. Warren (Jacki Weaver) and things are also looking bad for Lisa, who has taken a shine to Jerry. »

Slapstick Sandy! Oscar winner Sandra Bullock glowed at a star-studded event in L.A., on Tuesday, June 16, where she delivered an impassioned, funny, self-deprecating speech about female empowerment while joking about her tough life experiences. Bullock, 50, hit the Tiffany & Co.-sponsored Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards, held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in L.A.'s Century City neighborhood, looking hotter than ever. The Proposal star wore a cute frock comprised of a one-shouldered metallic navy bodice tucked into a printed midi-length skirt. The [...] »
The most recent stumble was the tepid buddy romp “Hot Pursuit,” which went nowhere despite some promising elements. It had a female director, Anne Fletcher, with a solid track record (“27 Dresses,” “The Proposal”). It featured two popular funny ladies as a mismatched pair, Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. And it employed a time-tested premise of using crime as a backdrop for humor. But its makers forgot one thing: A good script that somehow avoided relying on such material as menstruation and faux lesbian make-out sessions to draw laughs. Film historian Jeanine Basinger notes that after “The Hunger Games” opened the gates for more franchises based on literary series aimed primarily at girls, “Studios are too busy trying to prove women are action stars. They are working so hard on that, they forgot to make these comedies funny. How many really great female comedians have been seen in motion pictures from 1960 onward? »

When Hot is Cold: Fletcher’s Tone Deaf Comedy a Frivolous Altercation
For those familiar with director Anne Fletcher’s studio track record, including the rom-com platitudes of The Proposal (2009) and the broad mother and son road trip comedy The Guilt Trip (2011), it will hardly be surprising to find a similar lack of comical finesse on hand in the shrill insistence of her latest venture, Hot Pursuit. Basically another blacktop jaunt desperately trying to amuse with a countless host of familiar squirming scenarios, television alums David Feeney and John Quintance try to inject their small screen inclined tropes into the old odd couple formula with a surprising lack of success. This had to have been something that seemed like it could have worked thanks to the talent it attracted to headline, but the vehicle serves a complete disserve to its leading ladies, on both content and visual fronts.

Reese Witherspoon got an Oscar nomination for starring in “Wild” last year, but she’s not getting any love for “Hot Pursuit,” her new buddy comedy with “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara. The PG-13 Warner Bros. release directed by Anne Fletcher (“The Proposal”) has a measly 8 percent approval rating from 81 critics counted on Rotten Tomatoes. That means only six of them could recommend it to their readers. “The joyless and perfunctory ‘Hot Pursuit’ would be a black mark on anyone’s résumé, but it’s an especially disheartening one for Witherspoon at this point in her career,” TheWrap‘s Inkoo Kang wrote in her. »
