'The Hangover' producer J.C. Spink dies at 45

19 April 2017 6:59 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Benderspink co-founder specialised in spec scripts.

J.C. Spink, executive producer of The Hangover trilogy and a producer on A History Of Violence, died on Tuesday night at his home in West Hollywood. He was 45.

No cause of death was immediately known and an autopsy has yet to be carried out.

Originally from Philadelphia, Spink co-founded the management-production company Benderspink with his partner, fellow Bucknell University graduate and fellow Zide-Perry Productions assistant Chris Bender.

The two ran the company together for 18 years, until they parted ways last year.

In their first year of operation, the producing-management duo, who specialised in spec screenplays, sold more than 20 scripts and helped set up American Pie, which grossed $235m globally.

Highlights included a first-look deal with New Line Cinema, where they set up such films as The Butterfly Effect, Monster-In-Law, and We’re The Millers.

Benderspink’s big spec sales led to the latter two films, as well as »

J.C. Spink, Manager and ‘The Hangover’ Producer, Dies at 45

19 April 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Manager and producer J.C. Spink, who founded Benderspink with Chis Bender and produced comedies like “The Hangover,” died Tuesday at his home in West Hollywood, the Los Angeles County Coroner confirmed to Variety. He was 45.

Spink was found unresponsive in his home by his brother and pronounced dead at 8:18 p.m. on Tuesday, according to the coroner. A cause of death has not yet been revealed. An autopsy will be conducted, and he appeared to have died of natural causes. Foul play is not currently suspected.

The relentlessly upbeat Spink was well-liked by the Hollywood community for his good humor and industriousness. Even as the spec market began to dry up in Hollywood over the past decade, Spink remained as active as ever with dozen of projects in development. And while he was known for his ability to package specs, Spink also made sure to stay busy on branded material, »

J.C Spink, a producer who worked on “The Hangover,” “We’re the Millers” and “A History of Violence,” has passed away at 45, TheWrap has learned.

Ken Jeong’s ‘Dr. Ken’ Manages to Reboot ‘Community’ and Heal Dan Harmon’s Rift with Sony at the Same Time

31 March 2017 9:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ken Park, a doctor pursuing a career in comedy, has been offered a great opportunity: A starring role in Dan Harmon’s new comedy about a group of misfits at a community college.

Park is a bit of a goofball, so ultimately Harmon writes the part of Señor Chang, an eccentric Spanish teacher, for the comedian. Sound familiar?

The Season 2 finale of Ken Jeong’s ABC sitcom “Dr. Ken” rips a page out of real life, sort of. “Community” creator Dan Harmon guest stars as, you guessed it, Dan Harmon (playing a particularly surly version of himself). Also appearing:

Alison Brie – who played Annie on the show, opposite Jeong’s Chang – and a few other familiar faces from the show, including recurring actors Erik Charles Nielsen (Garrett), Danielle Kaplowitz (Vicki), Richard Erdman (Leonard), and Luke Youngblood (Magnitude – pop pop!).

“The word ‘surreal’ was pervasive,” Jeong said of having Harmon on set. »

Deadpool 2 Director Promises More Action

31 March 2017 8:25 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Deadpool remains one of the most shocking success stories in the superhero genre -- more unpredictable than even the success of Marvel Studios' risky bets on Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Ant-Man. Internationally, the first Deadpool is still the highest grossing R-rated movie in history, no matter the genre. Made for only $58 million, the film went on to gross over $780 million worldwide, making it one of the most financially successful movies in the world of comic book movies. 

If something ain't broke, don't fix it, right? To a certain extent... yeah! Yet, it is also extremely important to evolve any franchise in the sequel; better the second chapter shakes things up a bit like The Empire Strikes Back of The Dark Knight, rather then become another sequel rehash like The Hangover Part II. 

For better or worse, Deadpool 2 has a new director this go-around, John Wick co-director David Leitch. »

Captain Underpants Prepares For A Suitably Epic Adventure In First Trailer

22 March 2017 6:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You’ve heard of Captain America and Captain Marvel – heck, you’re probably even familiar with Captain Fantastic thanks to Viggo Mortensen – but what about Captain Underpants?

Due to screen in front of Lionsgate’s Power Rangers movie this coming weekend – for those in the States and Canada, at least – we now have our first look at David Soren’s (Turbo) animated pic in action. Hatched as a collaboration between DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox, Captain Underpants plucks Dav Pilkey’s wonderfully wacky cast of characters and catapults them onto the big screen in style.

Ed Helms, best known for his roles in The Office and The Hangover franchise, lends his voice to the title role, and is flanked by an all-star cast comprised of Kevin Hart (Jumanji), Thomas Middleditch, Nick Kroll as villainous Professor Poopypants and Jordan Peele, the creative mind behind horror hit Get Out, as nerdy tattletale Melvin Sneedly. »

‘Biography’ Franchise Returns as Event Programming Across A+E Networks Channels (Exclusive)

21 March 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A+E Networks is reviving one of the programming franchises that built the company into a cable powerhouse: “Biography.”

The series that once defined A&E Network will be revived starting in the spring as a recurring program tied to current headlines, milestone anniversaries and newly unearthed material about famous names.

The new-model “Biography” will air in various formats, from multi-part series to two-hour specials. The installments will primarily air on A&E Network but some will run on History and Lifetime as warranted by the subject matter. As part of the revival, A+E’s existing Bio.com digital content hub will receive a major overhaul, adding more video content and resources to coincide with new installments.

Among the docu productions ordered for the relaunch is a six-hour series examing the life and death of Tupac Shakur, a two-hour take on the murder of rapper Notorious B.I.G. (aka Christopher Wallace), and a four-hour look at the »

Rowan Atkinson cameos as Mr Bean in new Chinese comedy

20 March 2017 11:09 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Mar 21, 2017

Top Funny Comedian: The Movie sees Rowan Atkinson reprising the role of Mr Bean. Chances are you won't be seeing the movie, though...

Rowan Atkinson had apparently all but retired the character of Mr Bean – and yet it turns out he’s filmed a special cameo in a new Chinese comedy.

The film, Top Funny Comedian: The Movie, follows five people who head to Macau, China’s gambling capital, and then get lost. Mike Tyson intervenes, to give them some help. If you’re already thinking The Hangover here, then you’re on the right lines.

Atkinson’s role isn’t a big one in the movie, and it’s unlikely that the film will get a release in the UK. Furthermore, he doesn’t speak Mandarin, and his co-star, Geu Degang, confirmed that he communicated with the rest of the cast using facial expressions and gestures. »

Hollywood and Las Vegas: The Perfect Movie Relationship

16 March 2017 6:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There’s not many places on Earth more bright, glitzy and glamorous than Las Vegas. With its famous shows, many casinos and constant parties, it’s no surprise that the city in the desert is popular with Hollywood and the film industry. Situated just 263 miles east of Los Angeles and the film community, Vegas has attracted the attention of movie producers for decades.

Founded in 1905, not too long after the birth of the movie industry itself, the City Of Las Vegas first appeared in a motion picture in 1952. The film was The Las Vegas Story, a Howard Hughes production starring Jane Russell and Victor Mature that was a suspenseful thriller involving murder and intrigue. It was quickly followed by the likes of Crashing Las Vegas and Meet Me In Las Vegas a few years later, but it was the arrival of the 1960 Rat Pack film Ocean’s 11 which really united »

The Good Fight Season 1 Episode 3 Review: The Schtup List

26 February 2017 2:44 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Things between Diane and Lucca are starting to thaw.

Although, I wonder if they'll ever talk about what happened between them. Does Lucca even know Diane and Kurt are separated now?

These are just some of the questions that went through my head during The Good Fight Season 1 Episode 3.

One of the more prominent storylines concerned some unintended consequences of the new administration.

Reddick, Boseman & Kolstad is an all black firm that primarily handles police brutality cases. The partners are concerned this will piss off the government and result in less favorable tax benefits for their clients.

Their concern increases when a longtime client hasn't paid his retainer this year.

The client's mention of a new administration and a subsequent meeting with a firm that openly supported Trump, suggest they need to find a Trump supporter of their own.

The stakes they go to to find one are pretty funny. »

Mike Tyson Is Getting His Own Web Series On YouTube

24 February 2017 2:14 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

The latest aging celebrity to come to YouTube is Mike Tyson. The one-time heavyweight champion of the world will star in a web series that will see release on his YouTube channel and will be produced by the team at Shots Studios.

The goal, as noted in a Variety article, is to produce at least two videos for Tyson’s channel each month. Shots is galvanized by the success the former boxer has seen on YouTube in 2017. In January, he starred alongside another Shots client, ex-Vine standout Rudy Mancuso, in a video that received more than 2.1 million views. Four days later, the first video on Tyson’s channel, in which he performed a dis rap while other performers lip synced along to the words, also cracked two million hits.

Since retiring from boxing in 2006, Tyson has managed to establish himself as an entertainer thanks to a few memorable roles. He »
