14 movies to remind you of all the reasons high school was mortifying and awful

30 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Back-to-school: that well-worn term that means fresh school supplies, new classes, old friends and falling leaves. Students stock their lockers again in August and September after a refreshing summer (remember summer break? Do you?). But for those who have graduated high school... well, high school was a trial by fire. If you "Can't Hardly Wait" to head to "Animal House," you've gotta take a load of "Brick." You can't go "Old School" until you've learned "The Perks of Being a Wall Flower." You haven't achieved "Higher Learning" without having started out "Clueless." To get to "22 Jump Street," you have to have attended "21 Jump Street," you know? HitFix staffers traveled back in time to explain how flicks like "Mean Girls," "Easy A," "Carrie," "Three O'Clock High," "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," "The Breakfast Club," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "The Faculty" are secretly the most traumatizing and mortifying films, because of those high school life lessons. »

If I Stay Review

27 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

When the talented young actress Chloë Grace Moretz burst onto the scene, truly coming to prominence with her performance as Hit-Girl in the 2010 superhero flick Kick-Ass, she was a breath of fresh air. She may have looked like a sweet, innocent young girl – but subverted the stereotype with an invigorating, energetic, and somewhat unrefined turn, signalling the start of what has since been a flourishing career, which has seen her collaborate with Martin Scorsese in Hugo, and turn to her dark side in the Carrie remake. However her latest endeavour, R.J. Cutler’s If I Stay, is a dramatic step backwards, as she plays the cliched, ‘misunderstood’ teenager with about as much depth as a paddling pool. A character that is everything we had hoped she would never become.

Moretz plays Mia Hall, an introverted high school student, who prefers to play her cello and listen to Beethoven, than go »

'Dreamgirls' Producer to Adapt Broadway Musical '13'

12 August 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

CBS Films is teaming up with Dreamgirls producer Laurence Mark to bring the hit Broadway musical 13 to the big screen.

Bert V. Royal (Easy A) has signed on to write the screenplay, which centers on a teenage boy who is at the top of his social circle in Manhattan. In the aftermath of his parents' messy divorce, he is transplanted to a small town in Indiana, where he finds himself "uncool" for the first time in his life. With his bar mitzvah coming up, he hatches a plan to become cool again, which doesn't go quite so well.

Dan Elish and Robert Horn wrote the book for the play, with Jason Robert Brown penning the music for the play, which debuted at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles in 2007, before moving to Broadway in 2008.

Laurence Mark will produce alongside Robert L. Boyett, who produced hit TV shows such as Bosom Buddies, »

Laurence Mark, Bob Boyett Will Bring ‘13’ Tuner To Big Screen Via CBS Films

12 August 2014 2:21 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Call it Dreamboys. Laurence Mark has signed to produce a big-screen version of Jason Robert Brown‘s smart teen tuner 13 for CBS Films. Mark will team with Bob Boyett, the TV veteran (Happy Days, Bosom Buddies)-turned-theater producer who mounted the Broadway show. It’s about a Bar Mitzvah boy unsettlingly transplanted from Manhattan, where he’s cool, to an Indiana burg, where he’s not. Until he is. David Blackman is exec producing.

Bert V. Royal (Easy A) is writing the screenplay based on Dan Elish and Robert Horn’s book for the show. Smart-alecky and featuring a bevy of sorta-teens, 13 flopped on Broadway in 2008 despite kudos for the game score by Brown (Tony winner for Parade and The Bridges Of Madison County whose adaptation of Honeymoon In Vegas is Broadway-bound this season). CBS Films VP Production Mark Ross and creative exec Winnie Kemp are overseeing the project.

Watch These Actors Audition For the Roles That Would Change Their Lives Forever

11 August 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Luckily, someone has pieced together the rare audition tapes of A-list celebrities trying to land the roles that would eventually change their careers. From Emma Stone's adorable reading for Easy A to Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus's sweet Disney Channel auditions - these clips give a great insight into what stars were like before they really hit it big. Granted some stars, like Martin Freeman and Jim Carrey, were already well-known by the time that they made their clips and a few auditions were for roles that went to someone else, but it's still fun to watch them prepare for the roles of a lifetime.

Aly Michalka joins recurring cast for CW’s iZombie

7 August 2014 11:22 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Easy A supporting star Aly Michalka will play the lead’s Bff in iZombie…

With lots of DC comics' superhero characters making it to the small screen of late, it’s easy to forget that iZombie, a new TV series under development at CW, is based on a comic too.

The new series is inspired by the 2010-2012 DC comic of the same name, which saw the state of Oregon over-run with vampires, apocalyptic-sized fights and – you guessed it – zombies.

There’s been a bit of a casting change-up since the pilot got a full season order, with Aly Michalka stepping in to replace Alexandra Krosney as Peyton, best friend to protagonist, and brain eater, Liv (Rose McIver).

Michalka is probably best known as Rhiannon from Easy A, but has also appeared in CSI: NY, Two And A Half Men and, ahem, Grown Ups 2.

The show will have a crime procedural tone, »

Paul Feig Wants to Create a Female-Led 'Ghostbusters'

4 August 2014 9:55 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ghostbusters 3 has always been one of those projects that audiences aren’t sure they want. Sony has yet to find a director after several attempts, and there is dubious involvement of original cast members like Bill Murray. But what if the ghoul-hunting hijinks are spearheaded by something completely fresh and unique: female Ghostbusters?

According to The Wrap, Sony is looking to hire Paul Feig to battle demons in the blockbuster, which he would direct, write and produce. Feig, best known for the riotous Bridesmaids and The Heat, has proven that he can handle empowered female action-comedy.

Sources say that if he signs on, Feig would rewrite the script from scratch, even though the studio was pleased with Ethan Cohen’s previous draft.

Plot details remain uncertain, but if Sony does decide to take this approach, it would signal a breakthrough for Hollywood, in which strong female characters would crack »

Spotlight on the Stars: Emma Stone

23 July 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at a younger A-lister, though one who’s been continually increasing her profile for a number of years now. It’s Emma Stone, one of Hollywood’s brightest young stars. She’s basically been on a rocket to the top, with no signs of slowing down. Stone not only has the goods as an actress, she’s got the charisma and personality to match. That’s the kind of combination that allows a star to go far. She’s an A-lister through and through, but one still very much on the upswing of her career. She’s still got plenty more to do, including I suspect…win an Oscar. Stone is an actress who can shine in just about any role. She got her start with a clever supporting performance in Superbad, the type of performance she’d »

Entertainment Geekly: A call for an end to serious blockbusters

I never really had my Godzilla moment as a kid. The closest I ever came was a Godzilla franchise marathon one Saturday afternoon.

Allison Janney Joins The D.U.F.F For CBS Films

11 June 2014 6:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The onslaught of adaptations of Young Adult fiction continues with The D.U.F.F – an upcoming movie from CBS Films, which has just added award-winning Allison Janney to its cast. Based on the debut novel of author Kody Keplinger, the film has Academy Award winner Ari Sandel (Aim High) on board to direct, from a screenplay penned by Josh A. Cagan (Undergrads).

With Mae Whitman (Arrested Development) in the lead role, the story sees a high school senior devastated as her happy world is shaken by the realization that her fellow students routinely refer to her as The D.U.F.F (Designated Ugly Fat Friend to pretty students). Incensed, she drafts in the help of a male friend (Robbie Amell from The Tomorrow People) to aid in her personal reinvention, as she moves to undermine the school’s ruthless label maker (Bella Thorne from Blended).

Zombieland Director Ruben Fleischer Being Considered by Sony to Helm Ghostbusters 3

2 June 2014 12:46 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

He’s one of the frontrunners to replace Edgar Wright as the director of Ant-Man, but now Gangster Squad helmer Ruben Fleischer is said to be under consideration by Sony to tackle Ghostbusters 3.

This particular fact came to light during all the Ant-Man news which hit over the weekend. Fleischer, Rawson Marshall Thurber (Easy A) and Adam McKay (Anchorman) were all named as those in contention for the Marvel Studios movie, with the latter emerging as being close to taking the job on Saturday.

However, it was quickly revealed that he had dropped out of talks (McKay took to Twitter to blame scheduling issues), with now Fleischer and Thurber the only two left that we know of.

The Zombieland director has yet to find another project, and whether or not he would be able to take Ant-Man before possibly moving onto Ghostbusters 3 remains unclear. The Lego Movie’s Phil Lord »

Adam McKay and Ruben Fleischer Among Those in the Running for Ant-Man Director

30 May 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

When it was revealed that Edgar Wright and Marvel Studios had parted ways due to creative differences over Ant-Man, some fans declared that they had lost all interest in the movie.

However, Kevin Feige has a knack for finding the right director for their movies, so it perhaps shouldn’t come as to much of a surprise that he’s already lining up three very impressive replacements for the Shaun of the Dead helmer. According to THR, they include Rawson Marshall Thurber, Adam McKay and Ruben Fleischer.

Do the names not ring a bell? Well, Thurber was responsible for Easy A and We’re The Millers, while McKay is of course best known for the Anchorman movies and Fleischer directed both the incredibly popular Zombieland and Gangster Squad (which received something of a mixed response upon release).

The site adds that Jonathan Levine (50/50) was also in the mix at one point, »
