Last month we reported that Jonah Hill and Emma Stone had both been offered roles in Sony’s very long gestated Ghostbusters 3. The news came as a sign of good luck for the forever plagued project that has hit speed bump after speed bump, well now it seems that Stone has declined the chance to appear in the film.
Hill is reportedly still considering the role and has yet to respond to his offer, although things aren’t looking too good for Sony’s third phantom-phasing film in their long dead franchise. Ever since Bill Murray declared his lack of interest in returning for Ghostbusters 3 in any capacity the film has had no small amount of trouble receiving the green light, with Dan Aykroyd seemingly never losing hope that the project will one day be made. It’s currently unknown why Stone declined her offer assuming of couse »

Those who follow the film industry closely or even casually are no doubt aware of the power that the MPAA ratings system holds: a power that is particularly concentrated in the line between PG-13 and R. By precluding box office earnings from the lucrative crowd of early teens and kids, an R-rated film loses out on enough box office potential that studios generally insist upon their big-budget titles being strictly kept within the PG-13 range.
A particularly immediate example of this is the current ongoing struggle to bring Deadpool to the big screen. The R-rated script, which was penned by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, was received extremely well by fans and ...

With shows like The Walking Dead and American Horror Story scooping up high ratings and accolades like they’re going out of style, there’s no doubt that horror is dominating TV right now. It’s even becoming a big time trend to turn popular horror movies into their own series’, with spin-offs of Psycho and Silence of the Lambs already moving into their second seasons and others based on The Shining, Scream, The Exorcist and From Dusk Till Dawn currently in the works.
That said, the road to success hasn’t always been an easy one, when it comes to TV adaptations of beloved horror flicks. Over the years we’ve seen many of them come and go, either failing to catch on with audiences the way shows like Bates Motel and Hannibal have or even failing to ever find their way in front of the cameras.

It was no surprise to learn during this year's Oscars that Stone and Jennifer Lawrence are pals; the pair share a similar down-to-earth appeal and uncanny ability to make us want to be their Bff.
As Stone celebrates her 25th birthday, Digital Spy looks back on 9 of her most charming moments.
'Pocketful of Sunshine' (Easy A, 2010)
While she'd previously stood out as the love interest to Superbad and Zombieland's various incarnations of nerd, Stone's breakout role was in Will Gluck's perfectly pitched high school comedy Easy A. Her wry, sharp-tongued Olive is both utterly charming and the kind of convincing, three-dimensional teenage girl that has become rare in the genre, and this iconic moment sums up everything we've come to love about Stone. »
In 2009, Greg Mottola’s 80s-set comedy-drama Adventureland saw the pairing of a young, relatively unknown Jesse Eisenberg, with a young, newly-recognisable Kristen Stewart. While she was learning to navigate the adulation wave of Twilight, which had been released the previous year, Adventureland would prove to be Eisenberg’s break-out role.
Well, what a difference four years makes. While Kristen Stewart has waved goodbye to Twilight’s Bella Swan, attempting to mix big budget (Snow White And The Huntsman) with independents (On The Road, The Runaways), Jesse Eisenberg has been strengthening his dramatic chops on films such as Zombieland, The Social Network, Now You See Me and the current festival favourite, The Double. And now, with experience under their belts and box office success to their names, Eisenberg and Stewart are to reunite for another adventure, in the shape of action-comedy, American Ultra.

Aside from signs that Ryan Reynolds should perhaps steer clear of comic book adaptations for a bit (those signs being “Green Lantern” and this past summer's flop “R.I.P.D.”), the actor has stayed loyal to his long-gestating “Deadpool” vehicle. First portraying a version of the scarred and unstable mercenary in Gavin Hood's “X-Men Origins: Wolverine," Reynolds has repeatedly attempted to push a hard-r version of the story through 20th Century Fox with director /visual effects specialist Tim Miller. However, after an extended push-back from the studio, the director and actor have spoken up about their clinging hopes for bringing it to fruition. Talking to ClevverMovies recently (via Dark Horizons), Miller revealed that “Zombieland” screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have turned in a new draft of “Deadpool” to Fox, and now they're just waiting on the studio to acknowledge its possibilities. “ 'Deadpool' is still alive, and we're just »

Over the past few weeks we've been inundated with news from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but 20th Century Fox stole a few headlines from Marvel Studios this week by releasing the first trailer for Bryan Singer's hotly-anticipated mutant epic X-Men: Days of Future Past, next year's time-travelling X-sequel sequel which brings together Fox's original X-Men and X-Men: First Class timelines. Although lacking in any real visual effects (owing to the fact they're yet to be completed), the teaser gave us a look at the majority of »

Just last week, Ryan Reynolds revealed that he thinks a "Deadpool" movie will "eventually" be made, despite the fact that it's been in the works for four years and would need 20th Century Fox to invest in an R-rated superhero film. In a new interview, "Deadpool" director Tim Miller explained that the movie is "closer to getting a greenlight" that it was just two months ago. "We will never give up," he said. "'Deadpool' is still alive and we're just waiting for the studio to embrace what an amazingly f*cking awesome film this would be. Ryan is ready, I am ready, the fans are more than ready, we just need that elusive green light." To help make the film happen, Miller and Reynolds have agreed to lower the budget and just turned in a new draft of the script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland). But Fox has yet to budge. »
Last week, Ryan Reynolds hinted at progress on the long-gestating Deadpool movie, stating that "within the last couple of weeks [it's] taken a few very, very small tiptoes forward." Well, director Tim Miller has now echoed that sentiment, as well as revealing that the screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (Zombieland, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) have turned in a revised script for the X-Men Origins: Wolverine spin-off / retcon.
"We will never give up," Miller tells ClevverMovies. "Deadpool is still alive and we’re just waiting for the studio to embrace what a fucking awesome film this would be. Ryan is ready, I am ready. And the fans are more than ready. We just need that elusive green light."
With Miller, Reynolds, Wernick and Reese looking at a hard R-rating for Deadpool, it remains to be seen whether 20th Century Fox will ever give the go ahead to the project, but it seems »

A week ago, Ryan Reynolds said that the long-awaited Deadpool movie was tiptoeing forward. Today, the film's director, Tim Miller, says that the creative is ready, and they're just waiting for the greenlight! While talking to Clevver Movies he said,
"We will never give up! Deadpool is still alive and we're just waiting for the studio to embrace what an amazingly f***ing awesome film this would be. Ryan is ready, I am ready, the fans are more than ready, we just need that elusive green light."
This all sounds very promising doesn't?! It would be amazing if this movie actually happened and were made the way it should be! Miller also confirmed that a new draft of the script has been sent in by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Reynolds previously explained how they are trying to push it through,
"[In] its current iteration the movie’s actually very small. »

"[In] its current iteration the movie's actually very small. There's minimal impact to the studio, which is the way we're kind of presenting it to them. We're saying 'Look, the budget is minimal. Therefore, can we do this the way it should be done?' Which unfortunately needs a Rated R or it needs those elements. The script is probably available online, it leaked. But it's very Meta, I mean the character knows he's in a movie, he knows he's in a comic book. He names studio executives in the script. So, it's kind of a risky property. But, you know, we'll see. It's actually, within the last couple of weeks, taken a few very, very small tiptoes forward. »
Tim Miller is a visual effects specialist who worked on multiple "X-Men" movies, and is the director attached to the long-gestating "Deadpool" movie. He has also confirmed star Ryan Reynolds' recent comments that the film adaptation of the famed mercenary comic character is moving forward, albeit slowly.
Screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick ("Zombieland," "G.I. Joe Retaliation") have turned in a new and well-regarded draft of the script, those involved are ready to make it - it's now all up to 20th Century Fox to give the film the go ahead. Miller tells Clevver Movies that the project is closer to happening than it was just two months ago:
"We will never give up!. Deadpool is still alive and we’re just waiting for the studio to embrace what an amazingly f*ing awesome film this would be. Ryan is ready, I am ready, the fans are more than ready, »

The Deadpool movie is "still alive", its director has said.
"Deadpool is still alive and we're just waiting for the studio to embrace what an amazingly f**king awesome film this would be," he told Clevver Movies in a statement.
"Ryan is ready. The fans are more than ready. We just need that elusive green light.
"We will never give up."
Last week, Reynolds told Yahoo! Movies that the project had made "a few very, very small tiptoes forward".
Let’s get the much-obliged pun out of the way: the new animated adventure-comedy Free Birds is not a turkey of a film. It does, however, follow in the tradition of children-aimed flicks like Hop, an Easter release, and Rise of the Guardians, which earned much of its box-office leading up to the Christmas holiday last year. Yes, Free Birds is yet another film dependent on a tie-in with a holiday for relevancy and a quick buck.
The film starts on a family-owned farm where the blue-faced, small-beaked Reggie lives with a dim-witted flock of turkeys. (Owen Wilson voices Reggie, with a southern twang to tweak his voice so that kids won’t be distracted by how similar he sounds to Lightning McQueen.) Reggie realizes that with the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching, the flock has started to eat tons of corn as they await entrance into ‘turkey paradise.’

The cruddy spin offs, the endless badgering Bill Murray about Ghostbusters 3 - it's all testimony to the genius of the surprisingly salty and definitely prescient Ghostbusters (Channel 5, Sunday, 6.55pm GMT)
"Ray, when someone asks you if you're a god, you say yes" - Winston Zeddemore
It's a wonder that Dan Aykroyd isn't a full-blown recluse right now. Judging by all the interviews and soundbites he's done on the subject – not to mention the mountain of half-formed almost-speculation that appears immediately afterwards – the poor man must spend his entire life fending off questions about Ghostbusters 3. If it'll be animated or live action. If it'll star a new generation of Ghostbusters. If Bill Murray will appear in it or not. If it'll even happen at all. At this stage, Ghostbusters 3 is the Chinese Democracy of paranormal comedies, and all this fuss is down to how incredibly well-regarded the first Ghostbusters is. »

It’s no exaggeration to think of Deadpool as a thorn in Ryan Reynolds‘ side. After he portrayed the slick-talking meta-character in X-Men Origins: Amnesia Bullets, the prospect of a stand-alone movie has been a thrilling albatross. It’s the kind of development process that would consider a false start as progress. In fact, the last time anyone talked with confidence about seeing it happen was back in 2011 when Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick’s script was finalized and earning praise. This was a last gasp of optimism that came almost a year after Green Lantern made the prospect of seeing Reynolds suit up again silly. Good thing no one’s told Reynolds that. His optimism seems unswayed even as he admonishes the difficulties of doing the project right. According to Yahoo! UK, the actor said that the project is now in a position that might be attractive to Fox executives. “[In] its »

We already know that Andrew Garfield's wall-crawler is going to have his hands full when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into theaters, with the likes of Black Cat, The Vulture and Carnage rumoured as potential characters alongside the already confirmed Electro (Jamie Foxx), The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper). A few weeks back, a Daily Bugle viral teased Spencer Smythe, the creator of the Spider Slayers, and now a new article has popped up which name drops a couple more Spidey rogues in Ned Leeds (Hobgoblin) and Anne Weying (She-Venom)....
Cold Blooded Killer? By Ned Leeds, City Bureau.
A trial date has been set in the New York Appellate Court for alleged bio-terrorist Dr. Curt Connors. The former Oscorp biogenetics scientist has been indicted on twenty city and state counts, including trespassing, malicious destruction of property, theft of private property, aggravated assault, and using a weapon of mass destruction. »

It is difficult to discuss All the Boys Love Mandy Lane without considering the painfully long road the film has pursued to get a domestic release. This indie horror film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival…in 2006. Since then, it’s been 7 years of getting played at film festivals around the world, getting foreign releases here and there, and a whole lot of waiting. (Mandy Lane is likely the only film to date to be bought by a studio, The Weinstein Company in this case, two different times.) And so, now that All the Boys Love Mandy Lane is getting a release in theaters and on VOD, now that its director and star have gone on to moderately successful careers, it’s hard not to watch this film and wonder what the fuss was »
