Julianne Hough Returning To 'Dancing With The Stars' As A Judge - Report

19 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Julianne Hough, who first shot to stardom as a dancer on Dancing With the Stars, could become one of the celebrity dancing show’s full-time judges.

Julianne Hough Heading Back To 'DWTS'

Hough is reportedly in talks to become a fourth judge on Dancing With the Stars, joining the panel that currently includes Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli, according to TMZ. Apparently, Hough and producers are in the process of negotiating a deal for her to fill in the spot that was filled by a series of guest judges last season.

Hough created a bit of controversy while serving as one of the guest judges during season 18’s “switch-up” week when she accused Maksim Chmerkovkiy, who was normally partnered with Meryl Davis, of “phoning in” his dance with Danica McKellar. Her brother, Derek Hough, who dances on the show, took to his sister’s defense.

Julianne Hough May Return to 'Dancing With the Stars'... as a Judge

19 August 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's a new rumor on the street and it's not making all "Dancing With the Stars" fans happy.

TMZ got tongues wagging with the news - via unnamed sources - that two-time DWTS pro champion-turned-movie star Julianne Hough may return to the ABC show for this fall's Season 19, but as a judge instead of a competing dancer. Julianne - sister of five-time pro champ Derek Hough - left the show after Season 8 to star in movies like "Footloose" and "Safe Haven," but she's guest-judged DWTS for the past two seasons. TMZ said an offer has been made for Julianne to be the fourth judge, in addition to existing judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

TV Guide picked up the story, and the official Twitter account for ABC Publicity shared a link to TV Guide's version, adding a bit of credence to the rumor.

Julianne is a popular pro, »

‘Fantastic Four’ Writer Promises Less ‘Goofy’ Reboot; Talks Sequel Plans

9 May 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

After a few years in development, Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot finally began filming on location in Louisiana at the beginning of this week. Scripted by Simon Kinberg, the film will be an origin story starring a younger team than was seen in the last two Fantastic Four movies, and has been described as a “coming of age” tale. The assembled cast includes Miles Teller (Footloose) as Reed Richards, Jamie Bell (Jumper) as Ben Grimm, Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) as Johnny Storm and Kate Mara (Transcendence) as Sue Storm.

Whereas Tim Story’s two Fantastic Four movies were based mostly on the Earth-616 version of the team, Kinberg has said that the ...

Film Review: ‘Make Your Move’

19 April 2014 4:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“East-Meets-West Side Story” might have made a clunkier but more interesting title for “Make Your Move,” a slick, disposable soap opera about a poor white boy and a spirited Korean girl who fall in love despite hailing from rival corners of Brooklyn’s club scene. Wringing yet another variation on the boy-hoofer-meets-girl-hoofer formula that fueled his screenplays for “Save the Last Dance” and “Step Up,” writer-director Duane Adler weaves an overly tangled web of resentment, betrayal and thuggish violence around his attractive two leads (“Dancing With the Stars” champ Derek Hough and pop star BoA), both of whom display almost enough fancy footwork to overcome the cliches they’ve been saddled with. Theatrical biz will be limited, but this amiable time-filler could have ancillary legs, particularly among the Asian-American audiences being targeted.

A genial, tap-dancing ex-con from New Orleans, Donny (Hough) decides to skip out on his parole and hightail it to Brooklyn, »

Miles Teller and Jai Courtney on their new 'Fantastic Four' and 'Terminator' movies

11 March 2014 1:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Miles Teller and Jai Courtney are no strangers to the Hollywood movie making machine. Miles has won critical acclaim for roles in films such as "The Spectacular Now" and the upcoming Sundance hit "Whiplash" as well as candidly charm audiences in mainstream fare like "Footloose" and January's "That Awkward Moment."  Courtney is an Aussie TV veteran who was "showcased" alongside Bruce Willis in "A Good Day to Die Hard" and had supporting roles in "Jack Reacher" and "I, Frankenstein."  Both men will be seen next in Neil Burger's "Divergent," but it goes without saying that most movie fans are interested in their next big projects. Courtney was recently cast in the "Terminator" reboot "Terminator: Genesis" as Kyle Reese, a character previously played by Michael Biehn and Anton Yelchin.  Teller has become a somewhat controversial choice to play the stretchy Reed Richards (aka Mr. Fantastic) in 20th Century Fox's revamp of the "Fantastic Four. »

'Black Snake Moan' Team Craig Brewer & Justin Timberlake Back Together For 'The Idolmaker'

5 March 2014 6:44 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Director Craig Brewer knows his way around music-centered flicks. He broke out with rapper tale "Hustle & Flow," brought swamp stomping blues to the big screen with "Black Snake Moan" and made the kids fight for their right to dance in the "Footloose" remake. And now he's going back to the golden era of pop for another music movie. Variety reports that Brewer has signed to direct the developing redo of MGM's "The Idolmaker."  A project once eyed by Ryan Gosling, the remake of Taylor Hackford's lesser known 1980 film is a biopic of music producer and promoter Bob Marcucci, who managed '50s rock'n'roll stars like Frankie Avalon and Fabian before burning out. And Brewer will have some familiar talent helping him out with his "Black Snake Moan" star Justin Timberlake lending his producing powers, though he won't be starring in the effort. No word yet on who is working »

Craig Brewer In Talks For The Idolmaker Remake

5 March 2014 2:44 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

MGM’s plan to remake the award-winning 1980 musical drama The Idolmaker has so far had a bumpy ride. Ryan Gosling was originally attached to star, as well as intending to make it his directorial debut, but pulled out due to scheduling issues. Now, as Justin Timberlake closes a deal to produce, director Craig Brewer (Hustle And Flow, Footloose) has reportedly thrown his hat in the ring.

The Idolmaker was originally directed by Taylor Hackford (Ray), written by Edward Di Lorenzo (Miami Vice), and starred Ray Sharkey, Peter Gallagher and Joe Pantoliano. Loosely based on the life of Bob Marcucci – the rock promoter and manager responsible for the careers of artists such as Frankie Avalon and Fabian – the story follows songwriter and manager Vincent Vacari through his obsession with finding ‘the next big thing’. After guiding a local band to success and expanding his client list, his obsession becomes a destructive »

Craig Brewer Signs On To Direct MGM’s ‘The Idolmaker’

5 March 2014 12:06 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Craig Brewer, who directed Hustle & Flow and Footloose, is set to direct MGM’s reboot of The Idolmaker with Justin Timberlake, Hawk Koch and Gene Kirkwood producing.

In the original 1980 film Ray Sharkey starred as a mercenary music promoter who takes on two boys with the intent of turning them into teen idols. The story was based on the life of the life of rock promoter and manager Bob Marcucci, who discovered and promoted Frankie Avalon and Fabian.

According to Variety, the film was “one of the MGM library projects that were put into development in 2011 after the storied studio went through a pre-packaged bankruptcy in late 2010.” The studio began working on reboots like RoboCop and Poltergeist, and now The Idolmaker.

Brewer does have experience directing reboots, as he did with 2011′s Footloose. Now the question is, will Timberlake also star in the film he is producing? What do you think? »
