Disney’s Live-Action ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Gets ‘Wallflower’ Writer

30 September 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Beauty and the Beast is among the centuries-old fairy tales that Walt Disney Pictures previously adapted into an animated feature – and now, the studio is re-inventing the story as a modern live-action movie. The project has a director in Oscar-winner Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Breaking Dawn – Part 1 & 2), along with an initial script draft put together by Evan Spiliotopoulos (Hercules); according to the latest update, though, the screenplay is getting a rewrite.

EW is reporting that Disney’s Beauty and the Beast retelling is going to get a fresh script draft penned by Stephen Chbosky, the author/filmmaker whose past work includes the critically-acclaimed movie adaptation of his own teen coming of age novel, ...

Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast' Lands 'Wallflower' Writer

29 September 2014 10:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney is continuing the trend of turning it's most iconic animated fairy tales into live-action adventures, and after adapting a number of original classics it goes after one of it's more recent movies. Though more than 20 years old, 1991's Beauty and the Beast help redefine what Disney animation could be, and it is now getting retold with human actors, courtesy of a screenplay by Stephen Chbosky.

Stephen Chbosky is best know for penning The Perks of Being a Wallflower screenplay, adapted from his own novel of the same name. It's because of him that Emma Watson may actually sign on for the lead in this take on the tale to be directed by The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 director Bill Condon.

At this time, Emma Watson is not officially signed on. She is still loosely attached to Warner Bros. »

29 September 2014 8:35 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' trailer (image: Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1' poster) The Hunger Games: Mockingjay trailer — or more specifically, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 trailer — has been around for a little while. So this is one of those better-late-than-never posts. Directed by Francis Lawrence, who also handled the previous film in the franchise, Catching Fire, Mockingjay – Part 1 brings back Best Actress Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, and Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne. Below you can watch The Hunger Games: Mockingjay trailer titled “The Mockingjay Lives.” As you can see in the trailer, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 revolves around subversive revolutionary and freedom fighter Katniss Everdeen, who sets out to rescue Peeta, a sort of prisoner whose "uniform" is a funky white costume.

Rumor Alert — Avengers 3 to Be a Two Part Movie

29 September 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A new rumor about Avengers 3 is making the rounds. This rumor comes from Daily Marvelite, which is a site we've never sourced before. So why are we bothering to report this? It makes logical sense and kind of aligns with things we've heard before.

The meat of the rumor is in the title. Avengers 3 will be a two part movie just like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, and Twilight: Breaking Dawn. All the aforementioned movies will/have essentially double(d) their money by splitting those final books into multiple parts.

We've heard in the past from a few different sources that a showdown with Thanos is not going to happen until a fourth Avengers film. This two-part idea somewhat aligns with those previous rumors.

True or false, I do like the idea, and it would be a first for the Marvel cinematic universe. »

Will 'Avengers 3' Be a Two-Part Movie?

26 September 2014 7:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A new rumor claims that The Avengers 3 is going to do what quite a few franchise sequels have pulled in the recent past. It will be split into a two-part movie.

This is a trend that started with the Twilight Saga, as the final book in the series was split into The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. Harry Potter followed suit with The Deathly Hallows, and it has continued through such franchises as The Hobbit, originally planned as a two film prequel but turned into a three part epic, and Divergent. Anything to squeeze a little extra money out of a franchise.

Splitting The Avengers 3 into two parts is an interesting conceit, since its not based on a novel series, though it could be based on an expansive, existing storyline in the comics. And a good cliffhanger never hurt ticket sales. »
