Star Wars Celebration surely has something for every type of Star Wars fan, even those who love the prequel trilogy.

What Are The Chances That Epic Dennis Quaid Freakout Is Real?

14 April 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Movie sets can be tense places full of heightened emotions and raw nerves, so it.s not uncommon for actors and other players to freak the hell from time to time. Recently, a video of Dennis Quaid in the midst of an expletive-filled tirade started making the rounds, but it.s so over the top that some people have questioned it.s authenticity. The video, taken with what appears to be a smartphone, show the 61-year-old G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra star losing his damn mind after being interrupted on set for what sounds like the umpteenth time. He certainly lets loose, unleashing a tidal wave of curse words and insults, not only at whoever he.s talking to, but everyone around. At one point he says, "I have a bunch of pussies starring at me." This footage arrived online a few days ago with little to no »

'G.I. Joe 3' Hires New Writer to Revamp Franchise

1 April 2015 12:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With D.J. Caruso now locked in to direct G.I. Joe 3, after entering negotiations back in January, Paramount has brought on writer Aaron Berg to redraft the script. Jonathan Lemkin came aboard in July to pen the original sequel screenplay, but it isn't known if Aaron Berg is using elements of his draft, or starting over from scratch. Aaron Berg will work with D.J. Caruso to try and "revamp" the G.I. Joe action franchise.

The sequel has been in various stages of development over the past few years, with Martin Campbell once in talks to direct, but a deal never came together. The story will reportedly center on the Roadblock character played by Dwayne Johnson in 2013's G.I. Joe Retaliation, but it's possible the project is going in a completely different direction with this new writer and director team involved. It isn't known if any of the other G. »

31 March 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

27 March 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month it was revealed that the long-gestating big screen adaptation of Robotech had secured a screenwriter in Michael Gordon (300, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra), and now comes word that Sony has picked up the rights to the project and is looking to launch a potential franchise.

Variety is reporting that the studio is looking to fast track the live-action feature and views the property as having the necessary appeal to launch a blockbuster series with an “Independence Day meets Star Wars vibe”.

Robotech is unique in that it has always been a marriage of spectacle with human characters that seem drawn from life,” said Columbia Pictures Production Chief Michael De Luca. “That’s why we are so excited to be working with Mark and Gianni as we move forward on this project. With a history that offers an epic love triangle, a renegade hero, and a world on the brink of extinction, »

A Robotech Movie is Happening, Get the Details

5 February 2015 2:14 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Live-Action "Robotech" Film Gets "300" Scribe

4 February 2015 8:41 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"300" and "G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra" scribe Michael Gordon has come onboard the live-action film adaptation of the classic anime series "Robotech".

The original 1985 show was actually a combination of three different Japanese television shows - footage from "Super Dimensional Fortress Macross," "Super Dimensional Cavalry Southern Cross," and "Genesis Climber Mospeada" was cobbled together and redubbed to create an original 85-episode animated series that could be syndicated across U.S. markets.

As a result, a lot of rewriting and editing had to be done to stitch together three unrelated series to portray it as one cohesive storyline that spans three generations. To this day, the first season (based on the 'Macross' series) remains the most well-regarded.

Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton are set to produce the project and are already said to be considering filmmaker Andy Muschietti ("Mama") as the project's potential director.

300 & G.I. Joe Writer To Tackle Live-Action Robotech Movie

4 February 2015 3:35 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A live-action Robotech adaptation has actually been in and out of development at Warner Bros. since 2007, and has seen a host of writers and producers come and go. Now, Deadline report that the latest group to take a crack at bringing it to the screen are Warner Bros-based Hollywood Gang producers Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton, who have hired G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra scribe Michael Gordon to write the script, and are apparently looking at Andy Muschietti (Mama, Shadow of the Colossus) to direct. Robotech is a much loved, incredibly influential property which started out as an 85-episode science fiction anime TV series back in 1985, and has since spawned numerous spin-offs, books, comics, toys -- you name it. If you want an idea of the premise, go watch Pacific Rim! But in case you don't want to put yourself through that again, just think giant robots Vs. »
