Fox already has Minority Report slotted for the fall, but the network is far from done mining respected films for TV continuations. Today brings news that Fox is partnering with Paramount TV to remake 1980 flick Urban Cowboy, which starred John Travolta and Debra Winger.

Craig Brewer (Footloose, Hustle & Flow) will write, direct and exec-produce the new take, which is a modern reimagining of the romance between Sissy and Bud, two star-crossed lovers challenged by the difficulties of life in the oil refinery business, on the rodeo circuit and under the brutal Texas sun. Music will again play a key role in the series.

Fox has agreed for Brewer to write a script. If the network likes what it sees, it can begin casting for a pilot with hopes to get Urban Cowboy onto the air either midseason or in the fall of 2016.

'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: We Have a Winner!

20 May 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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, »

StreamFix: 5 Netflix options that remind you why the legends rule

18 March 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The weekend is approaching. You deserve legendary Netflix entertainment. Check out our five picks starring legendary entertainers proving why they're fantastic.  Robert Redford is a bad-ass with a ladies' Wimbledon haircut in "Three Days of the Condor" There was a magical time called 1975 in which Robert Redford was indistinguishable from Martina Navratilova. Celebrate that sacred hour with "Three Days of the Condor," the caper starring Redford as a CIA analyst who goes into hiding with a sultry Brooklyn Heights dame (Faye Dunaway) as foes zero in on him. Plenty of Oscar cred here: In addition to Dunaway, John Houseman and Cliff Robertson have key roles, and nominee Max von Sydow scares the hell out of you as an Alsatian assassin. Bill Murray makes monotony a joy in "Groundhog Day" It took me until this year to watch "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and I've decided Andie MacDowell does have a certain something. »

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Insurgent Star Miles Teller!

17 March 2015 6:10 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Ever since I first took notice of Miles Teller back with his scene-stealing performance in Footloose, he is always a blast to watch. In fact, with films like The Spectacular Now and Whiplash, he has proven to be one of the best young actors working today in my humble opinion. So of course it's been a pleasure seeing him be a part of the impressive cast involved in Insurgent. Miles brings humor to this character, and I for one can't wait to see him as Mr. Fantastic in The Fantastic Four. It »

Dancing with the Stars Recap: Which Celebrity Brought Down the House - and Attracted Big Stars?

16 March 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It was a big night in the ballroom - and not just because John McClane and GI Jane were in the house! Monday's installment of Dancing with the Stars kicked off the first of what the network promised would include lots of action-packed tributes to the show's 10th anniversary. The premiere episode didn't disappoint. There were lots of contemporary tunes ("Uptown Funk," "Take Me to Church"), plenty of showstopping choreography (Derek Hough, so glad you stuck around this season!) and even quadruple hanky moments (welcome to the ballroom, Army vet and amputee Noah Galloway!). No 9s or 10s were awarded just yet, »

Julianne Hough Enjoys A Workout Sans Makeup -- See Her Fresh-Face!

27 February 2015 12:45 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Julianne Hough is fresh-faced and beautiful!  The "Footloose" star was spotted out in West Hollywood on Thursday getting in a workout and sporting a completely makeup-free mug. Clad in a tank, sneakers and running shorts, the 26-year-old looked ready for an intense fitness session. We can't get over how young the actress looks when she's not all done up. And yes, she still looked gorgeous and glowing as she enjoyed the outdoors.   Julianne does love to experiment with her look. In January, she stepped out with a bold red lip and messy waves for the Nine Zero One Melrose Place Launch Party in Los Angeles.   The star's love for makeup actually goes way back to her child ballroom dancing days. She posted a throwback photo on Thursday of her as a 10-year-old dancing star fully made up with a very young Mark Ballas!  #tbt to back in my competitive Latin »
