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, »

Dancing With the Stars kicked off its 18th season Monday night, introducing the 12 new partnerships, Brooke Burke replacement Erin Andrews and a number of other changes designed to keep the dancing show fresh.

Dancing With The Stars Recap

First to hit the dance floor was Real Housewives of Atlanta star, actress and author NeNe Leakes and her pro partner Tony Dovolani.

Moviegoers have watched Miles Teller get rowdy in Footloose, lovey-dovey in The Spectacular Now and buddy-buddy with Zac Efron in That Awkward Moment. Now, the versatile actor is taking on his biggest project yet: Divergent. The 27-year-old will appear as Peter in the first movie made from Veronica Roth's hit young adult series.

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. »

Miles Teller has spoken out about his role as Reed Richards - Aka Mr. Fantastic - in the upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four. Teller (Footloose, That Awkward Moment, the upcoming Divergent) will play the elastic-limbed leader of the foursome, with his appointment confirmed recently after months of speculation. Speaking to IGN, Teller explained the appeal of the comic-book project, saying, "I didn't grow up really as a comic-book kid necessarily. Fantastic Four is my dad's favorite superhero comic. And so for me I guess what...

'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? »

Black Snake Moan's Craig Brewer Reteams With Justin Timberlake For The Idolmaker

4 March 2014 8:43 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If you.re like MGM, you.ll agree that cinema just doesn.t have enough remakes of thinly veiled biopics that aren.t biopics. In that respect, you should be happy to know that their upcoming update of 1980.s The Idolmaker has landed a director with his own history of music-infused filmmaking. Footloose director Craig Brewer will stand at the helm for an all-star trio of producers: Justin Timberlake, Hawk Koch, who produced the original, and Rocky producer Gene Kirkwood. (Fun fact: Kirkwood also produced the remake-defying Uhf!) Even though it isn.t clear in Variety.s story in what capacity this remake is coming, Brewer is a strong choice for the job. He bumped a lot of car trunks with his 2005 breakout drama Hustle and Flow - a film that is infinitely rewatchable to me for some reason - and followed that up with the bluesy Southern drama Black »

Craig Brewer to Direct 'The Idolmaker' for Producer Justin Timberlake

4 March 2014 3:15 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Craig Brewer is in negotiations to direct MGM's remake of The Idolmaker, which has Justin Timberlake attached to produce. It isn't known yet if the producer may star in the movie as well.

The project is based on director Taylor Hackford's 1980 drama The Idolmaker, which starred Ray Sharkey as legendary music promoter and manager Bob Marcucci, who discovered talented acts such as Frankie Avalon and Fabian. The story centered on the promoter as he sets out to turn two teenage boys into the next big stars. Edward Di Lorenzo wrote the script for the original film, but it isn't known if a writer is attached to the remake yet.

We first reported on this project back in February 2011, as one of several movies MGM was planning on remaking, which included Robocop, Mr. Mom and Poltergeist. In May 2011, we reported that Ryan Gosling had been attached to star and make his directorial debut. »

Hustle & Flow Director Craig Brewer in Talks to Helm The Idolmaker Remake for Producer Justin Timberlake

4 March 2014 3:12 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

MGM’s The Idolmaker remake has a new director.  Though Ryan Gosling was initially attached to star in and direct a new iteration of Taylor Hackford’s 1980 musical drama, he subsequently left the project.  Now Variety reports that Hustle & Flow director Craig Brewer is in talks to take the helm as Justin Timberlake has closed a deal to produce.  The original film starred Ray Sharkey and told the story of a songwriter/manager searching for “the next big thing.”  The pic was based on the life of concert promoter and manager Bob Marcucci, but it’s unknown if this new iteration will still take cues from Marcucci’s life or if it will explore new territory. Brewer certainly has experience with music-themed projects, as he wrote and directed 2005’s Hustle & Flow and the 2011 Footloose remake.  Since he has a tendency to also write the films that he directs, one imagines »

Craig Brewer Directing The Idolmaker

4 March 2014 2:56 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It looked briefly as though Ryan Gosling might make his directorial debut with the re-working of Taylor Hackford’s 1980 music drama The Idolmaker, only for that idea to vanish back into the ether almost as quickly as it arrived. MGM appears to have found a director, one versed in blending music with movies, in Hustle & Flow/Footloose man Craig Brewer.The original film starred Ray Sharkey as a music promoter who stops at nothing to turn his two young talents into big stars. It’s based on the life of Robert Phillip "Bob" Marcucci, who worked his way up to become a personal manager, first at Chancellor Records, then his own Robert P. Marcucci Productions, where he discovered and shepherded the career of such musicians as ‘50s/’60s teen idol Fabian and fellow warbling heartthrob Frankie Avalon. Marcucci later went on to become an occasional movie producer, and died in »

Cast of New The Fantastic Four Really Are Fantastic!

20 February 2014 1:31 PM, PST | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

It looks like The Avengers won't be the only team assembling in 2015. Fox is ready to roll out their own team of heroes with the reboot of Marvel's The Fantastic Four.

This week, the four actors who will make up the super family have been announced, and we have all the details!

Kate Mara will be playing Sue Storm a.k.a, the Invisible Woman. It's not too hard to guess that Sue will be able to become invisible and visible at will, but what you might not know is that she can also generate invisible force fields with her mind. Think Violet Parr from Disney's The Incredibles.

Miles Teller (Footloose) will be stepping into the shoes of Reed Richards, who calls himself Mr. Fantastic after gaining his abilities. Not only is he already a super-genius, but add the ability to stretch his body to great lengths into the mix, »

Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller to Reunite for New Heist Movie

20 February 2014 7:22 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Actor Michael B. Jordan started to gain attention over a decade ago in 2002, back when he played drug-dealing teenager Wallace on HBO’s acclaimed cult TV series The Wire; by comparison, Jordan’s That Awkward Moment costar (and fellow 27-year old actor) Miles Teller’s career has only started to gain traction over the past few years, beginning with his supporting roles in films like the indie drama Rabbit Hole, the Footloose remake and the no-holds-barred teen raunch found-footage movie Project X.

Is This the 'Fantastic Four' Cast or Has April Fools Day Arrived Early?

19 February 2014 9:02 PM, PST | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Fox has revealed the cast of their upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot, and it's without even thinking of holding back a laugh, quite hysterical. Not only do we have a Human Torch (Johnny Storm) who does not remotely match the comic book in Michael B. Jordan, but now we have his sister who must have gained chameleon-like powers to change colors at will in Kate Mara playing Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman). Add in a "Footloose" sidekick in Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic (whaaattt?) and Jamie Bell, who, alongside Jordan is the more talented of the group, doesn't spring to mind when you think of The Thing, but according to Variety, that's not confirmed as yet. That really makes director Josh Trank's job a lot harder who, after helming the impressive "Chronicle," now has to show some massive directing chops to be able to pull off impressing the fans and »
