Here's the Scary Movie 5 Trailer to Lift Your Holiday Spirits

21 December 2012 10:35 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Of course Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan appear in the Scary Movie 5 trailer, which focuses its spoofs on the Paranormal Activity franchise and also offers nods to Inception and Black Swan. Check it out and decide whether you'll see it or the Evil Dead remake on April 12, 2013.

Malcolm Lee directed Scary Movie 5 from a script penned by David Zucker. It stars Ashley Tisdale, Erica Ash, Heather Locklear, Terry Crews, Jerry O'Connell, Kate Walsh, and Jasmine Guy. The plot involves three dancers — one veteran performer and two upstarts who are also best friends — who vie for the lead in a new production from a snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed director. It spoofs Black Swan, Paranormal Activity, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, 127 Hours, and lots more.

Director Joseph Kosinski Provides Commentary on Oblivion Trailer

20 December 2012 3:17 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Next year is looking pretty stacked as far as sci-fi films go and director Joseph Kosinski's Oblivion is a perfect example. Taking place on a dystopian Earth, drone repairman Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) finds himself holding the future of mankind in his hands after discovering a crashed spaceship. While the first trailer debuted earlier this month, Kosinski recently provided an extensive commentary track that accompanied it. Along with behind-the-scenes information on how certain scenes of the movie were filmed, Kosinski fills in backstory as to what Cruise's character is doing on terra firma, the time frame the movie takes place in and a lot of technical details on buildings, spaceships and more. Kosinski also recently updated us on the status of Tron 3 and we will have an Oblivion interview with him posting next week. Also starring Olga Kurylenko, Morgan Freeman and Andrea Riseborough, Oblivion opens April 19, 2013. Hit the jump »

CAA Signs ‘Mad Men’ Star Jon Hamm

19 December 2012 3:52 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: Here’s a hot signing before the biz goes away for the holidays. CAA has just signed Jon Hamm, the Mad Men star who recently left ICM Partners early last month following the exit of his longtime agent Carol Bodie. Hamm had taken meetings with a few of the agencies — Wme was the other major player — but he’s headed for CAA. Hamm should have a bright future in features. Like Alec Baldwin, he can play comedy as well as drama, and has done several inspired turns on Saturday Night Live and in the film Bridesmaids. He played serious in the Ben Affleck-directed The Town, and those blue-chinned guys like Hamm also work well in macho franchises. Wme didn’t come out of this empty handed, as the agency reportedly signed David Oyelowo, who left ICM Partners at the same time Hamm did and has reportedly signed with Wme. »

James Franco doubtful for 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'

19 December 2012 5:47 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

James Franco has admitted that he is unlikely to appear in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. The actor told MTV that director Rupert Wyatt's exit from the sequel has cast doubt over him reprising his Rise of the Planet of the Apes role. "I was going to be a small part of the next one," he explained. "There was a moment when Rupert Wyatt was going to direct the second one. A lot of the human characters that were in the first movie were dead in the sequel that Rupert was going to direct.

So, Is James Franco Not In ‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes?’

18 December 2012 12:05 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes was perhaps one of the better films of 2011, and I’m sure that the sequel, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes will be one of the most anticipated of 2014, but it looks like it may be without one of the first film’s stars. James Franco has hinted that he is not involved, and has not heard from the production for quite some time. He said the following to MTV:

“I was going to be a small part of the next one,” he said.

“There was a moment when Rupert Wyatt was going to direct the second one. A lot of the human characters that were in the first movie were dead in the sequel that Rupert was going to direct. But there was one scene, between Caesar and my character, maybe even just like on a video that was left behind, »

James Franco Probably Won’t Appear In Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

18 December 2012 11:56 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though many people went into Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes expecting James Franco to be the star of the film, it turned out that it was really Andy Serkis’ film, with the lesser known actor stealing the spotlight as the ape Caesar.

Seeing as the story revolved around apes taking over the planet from humans, it should come as no surprise that the film centered more around Caesar than it did around Franco’s character. With that in mind, it should also come as no surprise that despite having a large role in the first film, James Franco may not appear in the sequel.

The actor was set for a small cameo in 2014′s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes but that was back when Rupert Wyatt was still attached to direct. Now that Matt Reeves has stepped in, Franco told MTV that he »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will see the sun set on James Franco's character

18 December 2012 12:41 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

General opinion seems to agree that James Franco was far and away the weakest link to Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, something Fox and director Matt Reeves seem to agree with as Franco has not been contacted by either party to reprise his role for the film's upcoming sequel Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. As per a recent interview that MTV conducted with Franco: "I was going to be a small part of the next one. There was a moment when Rupert Wyatt was going to direct the second one. A »

James Franco Says He May Not Be Back For Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

17 December 2012 11:58 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

A big part of the reason why Rise of the Planet of the Apes was so successful as a piece of storytelling was that it really knew where to focus the story's attention: directly on Caesar (the intelligent chimp played by Andy Serkis). While James Franco's Will Rodman was certainly an important part of the narrative and put on a great performance of his own, the movie is rightfully and purely Caesar's story, and it's an amazing and compelling one at that. So when it comes to the sequel, which is set to be directed by Matt Reeves (after Rupert Wyatt left the film believing he didn't have enough time to create a quality product), we all hope that pattern will continue. While it would be nice to see Franco's character in some capacity, it's important that the strong focus remain on the titular apes. But now it seems »

Franco Out Of The "Apes" Sequel?

17 December 2012 9:23 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It seems director Rupert Wyatt isn't the only one not coming back for the upcoming "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" sequel "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" at 20th Century Fox.

Asked about his role in the follow-up, the first film's leading human star James Franco reveals to MTV News that he doesn't think he'll be back.

"I was going to be a small part of the next one. There was a moment when Rupert Wyatt was going to direct the second one. A lot of the human characters that were in the first movie were dead in the sequel that Rupert was going to direct. But there was one scene, between Caesar and my character, maybe even just like on a video that was left behind."

But then a lot of things happened, like [former Fox co-chairman] Tom Rothman who was a big part of the first movie, left. »

James Franco Doubts He’ll Return for ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’

17 December 2012 8:39 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

With box office returns of nearly $500 million worldwide, Rise of the Planet of the Apes was one of the surprise hits of 2011. So it wasn’t surprising when Fox announced the development of a sequel to the film: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) is directing the sequel and Andy Serkis will reprise his role as Caesar, the leader of the apes, but one character that likely won’t return is James Franco’s Dr. Will Rodman.

Recently, Franco told MTV News that there were early plans for him to have a small role in the sequel, but things changed after director Rupert Wyatt dropped off the project.

I was going to be a small part ...

Will James Franco Return for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes?

17 December 2012 1:31 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

There's no doubt about it; Rise of the Planet of the Apes caught a lot of people by surprise in terms of how good it was. With a sequel looming, MTV caught up with star James Franco to find out if he'll reprise his role as Will Rodman in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

“I was going to be a small part of the next one,” Franco reveals. “There was a moment when Rupert Wyatt was going to direct the second one. A lot of the human characters that were in the first movie were dead in the sequel that Rupert was going to direct.

James Franco Not In “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”

17 December 2012 11:34 AM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

James Franco was one of the many reasons why Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes was a surprisingly successful reboot/prequel, but it sounds like we won’t see him in the second film, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. The sequel has already had a tortuous road, losing Rupert Wyatt as director, but, that being said, the film has secured Matt Reeves to helm and still has Andy Serkis onboard.

Here’s what Franco had to say when asked if he was going to return: “I was going to be a small part of the next one. There was a moment when Rupert Wyatt was going to direct the second one. A lot of the human characters that were in the first movie were dead in the sequel that Rupert was going to direct. But there was one scene, between Caesar and my character, maybe even just »

Is James Franco Being Shut Out of 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'?

17 December 2012 11:12 AM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Fox's Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has certainly undergone a number of behind the scenes issues lately. The latest might find the film without star James Franco. Speaking with MTV, Franco said, "I was going to be a small part of the next one. There was a moment when Rupert Wyatt was going to direct the second one. A lot of the human characters there were in the first movie were dead in the sequel that Rupert was going to direct. But there was one scene between Caesar and my character, maybe even like on video that was left behind, but then a lot of things happened, like [former Fox co-chariman] Tom Rothman who was a big part of the first movie, left. Now Rupert's not a part of it so I don't know. My guess it I won't be in it....

James Franco Doesn’t Know if He’ll be in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes or Not

17 December 2012 10:57 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

It would make sense for James Franco’s character, Will, to return for the sequel to “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”, if just in a cameo to tie the two films together. The character was an integral part of ape Caesar’s evolution in the first movie, and he did manage to survive the initial ape uprising. With “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” now set for 2014 and “Cloverfield’s” Matt Reeves taking over the directorial reins from Rupert Wyatt, it’s anybody’s guess where the story will go. For his part, James Franco has no idea. About, well, much of anything in regards to the sequel, as it turns out. He tells MTV while out promoting his latest musical ventures: I was going to be a small part of the next one. There was a moment when Rupert Wyatt was going to direct the second one. »

Rise of the Planet of the Apes was one of last year's biggest hits at the box office, taking in over $480 million worldwide.

James Franco Probably Won’t Return for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

We previously reported that James Franco might reprise his role as Will in the upcoming Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.  However, that was when Rise director Rupert Wyatt was still attached to the project.  Now that Wyatt has left and Matt Reeves (Let Me In) has come on board, it looks like Franco won't be needed.
