Disney Recruits Dwayne Johnson For Jungle Cruise Movie

19 August 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As if Rampage wasn’t already a testimony to Dwayne Johnson’s burgeoning star power in Tinsel Town, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the Ballers star is attached to frontline a Jungle Cruise movie for Disney, to be based on the company’s titular theme park attraction.

The small task of adapting a classic ride for the big-screen will be handled by Focus and Crazy Stupid Love alumni John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, who are on board to pen the film’s screenplay. No word yet on a director, though there is a slim chance that Requa and Ficarra may assume that responsibility for themselves.

Disney have long been trying to wrangle Jungle Cruise and its history into a feature film, with both Tom Hanks and Tim Allen attached to star at one point. For one reason or another, the project has failed to get off the ground, though »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system.

Akira

One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

Mark Wahlberg Joins Buddy Cop Romance Action Movie Hybrid 'Partners'

11 August 2015 5:21 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Mark Wahlberg already has some experience with the buddy cop genre, having previously starred alongside Will Ferrell in Adam McKay's fantastic action-comedy The Other Guys. Well, now he's ready to head back to the formula, as he has just signed on to Partners - a buddy cop comedy movie with a bit of a gender twist. Deadline has the scoop on this developing project, noting that it's in development over at New Line, and is based on a script by Evan Lerner - a first time screenwriter whose only credits to date are as a producer on Journey To The Center of the Earth and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Rather than pairing Mark Wahlberg with another male partner, the movie will instead put a female cop by the Ted star's side solving a case. According to the report, Mark Wahlberg will star in Partners as an Lapd detective »

Musicians’ Union Sues Record Companies Over Pension Fund Contributions

10 August 2015 12:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The American Federation of Musicians and Employers’ Pension Fund has sued five major recording labels for alleged failure to make pension fund contributions.

The suit was filed Monday in federal court in New York against Atlantic Recording, Hollywood Records, Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group Recordings and Warner Bros. Records. It alleges that the five companies failed to make pension fund payments from foreign audio stream revenue and foreign and domestic ringback revenue.

The union asserted that the recording companies entered into an agreement, subsequently renewed, in 1994 requiring the companies to pay 0.5% of all receipts from digital transmissions including audio streaming, non-permanent downloads and ringbacks.

“The record companies should stop playing games about their streaming revenue and pay musicians and their pension fund every dime that is owed,” said Ray Hair, Afm international president. “Fairness and transparency are severely lacking in this business. We are changing that.”

Zac Efron Splish-Slashes His Way into 'Baywatch' Reboot with The Rock

10 August 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Dwayne Johnson and director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) got a new buddy diving into their raunchy, R-rated Baywatch reboot. Zac Efron has agreed to take his shirt off repetitively and play second-fiddle to his straight-man co-star The Rock in Paramount's latest attempt to capitalize on nostalgia, adapted from the 1989 beach soap opera television series. The movie follows a by-the-books supervisor (Johnson) teaming up with his young, hot-heated co-worker (Efron) as they try to save their beach from a nearby oil tycoon, dead-set to wreck havoc on their workspace for financial gain. It's an intentionally overused plot made to become ironic in the vein of recent hits 21 and 22 Jump Street and with just a touch of The Brady Bunch Movie for extra seasoning. The Rock has been attached since last October, but with Seth Gordon signing on just after his Uncharted adaptation failed to come together the project is finally heating up and, »

'Baywatch' Movie Will Team Zac Efron with the Rock

10 August 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Zac Efron is in talks to star alongside Dwayne Johnson in Paramount Pictures' upcoming big screen adaptation of Baywatch. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Zac Efron's casting ensures the movie will start production in early 2016, most likely in February. The news comes just a few weeks after Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) signed on to direct.

The story follows a "by-the-book and very serious lifeguard," played by Dwayne Johnson who joins forces with a "young rule-flouting hothead" (Zac Efron) to try and save their beach from environmental destruction by an oil tycoon. Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Friday the 13th) wrote the latest draft of the screenplay, which was originally written by Justin Malen. It isn't known how many other major roles are left to be cast for Baywatch, but there have been rumors that original Baywatch stars David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson may reprise their roles in cameo appearances. »

Brad Peyton Signs Up For Military Adventure

4 August 2015 5:09 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Having already arranged to follow up this summer's San Andreas with the monster-mashing of Rampage, director Brad Peyton has now added another project to the pile. He'll direct an as-yet untitled "high concept military action-adventure" movie for Sony, from a screenplay by Iron Man writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway.That's the extent of the information available so far: along with there being no title, the plot is also under wraps. But it's evidence of Peyton's sudden ascent to the ranks of sought-after studio action directors, after San Andreas achieved the rank of Warners' second biggest hit of the year. That earthquake epic starred Dwayne Johnson, as did Peyton's previous Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, and as will Rampage (and the possible Journey 3). So it can't hurt that he has a Rock in his pocket.Marcum and Holloway, meanwhile, have rapidly become one of those name writing teams often attached »

Dwayne Johnson's Rampage movie lands San Andreas director

22 July 2015 10:47 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dwayne Johnson and Brad Peyton are to reunite for the upcoming movie based on the 1986 monster-packed videogame, Rampage.

One of the surprise hits of the year has been the Dwayne Johnson-headlined disaster movie, San Andreas. The film was expected to do decent business, but its $460m global take has put it ahead of films such as Tomorrowland and Terminator: Genisys. Furthermore, it was made for a comparatively lean $110m. Warner Bros will be pleased it gave the movie the go ahead.

The film marked the second collaboration between Johnson and director Brad Peyton, following their union on another surprise hit, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. And now they're going for the hat trick, with the news that Peyton has been hired to direct the big screen take on the videogame Rampage.

News of this project first broke a few weeks back, with Johnson signing up for the movie take »

The plot of the film is being kept under wraps, but Deadline adds that the film adaptation is said to be fairly consistent with the Midway game as three monsters - George (a King Kong-like gorilla), Lizzie (a Godzilla-like dinosaur/lizard), and Ralph (a giant werewolf) - wreak havoc/rampage through several major U.S. cities. The script is currently being penned by Ryan Engle »

Brad Peyton Directing Dwayne Johnson In Rampage; New Line Wants A San Andreas Sequel

22 July 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As Pixels prepares to duke it out with Southpaw at the box office this weekend, New Line is bringing the team behind this summer’s San Andreas back together for video game adaptation Rampage. Brad Peyton is in talks with the studio to helm the project, which will reteam him with star Dwayne Johnson and producer Beau Flynn.

Based on the ’80s Midway Arcade game, Rampage will center on one man (Johnson) standing between us and total annihilation as three monsters – a gorilla, a lizard and a wolf – create utter havoc as they tear across North America. Giant, fantastical creatures seems like a logical next step for the actor formerly known as The Rock, who proved unshaken by the worst Mother Nature had to offer.

Peyton has proven extremely capable at staging scenes of CGI carnage without losing the humans at the heart of the action, so he’s a »
