According to Deadline, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is developing a reboot of the classic 70s detective show Starsky & Hutch, which Sony Pictures TV Studios is pitching to potential networks.
The site reports that Gunn will pen the script with his brother Brian and cousin Mark, screenwriters of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, and will serve as executive producers, with James potentially directing the pilot. However, Gunn took to Twitter to post the following comment:
Lots of misinformation about Starsky & Hutch TV show out there so be wary of what you read! More to come soon, okay?

Update: Gunn has now taken to Facebook to confirm the news, revealing that it is set to be a continuation of the original series, rather than a reboot, remake or spoof:

Dwayne Johnson has taken to Instagram to share another image from the set of the upcoming video game adaptation Rampage, this time giving us our first glimpse at Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Agent Russell alongside his character Davis Okoye and co-star Naomie Harris.
Johnson captioned the image with: “The animal loving anti-poacher Ranger from Rwanda, the groundbreaking geneticist from Crispr and the cowboy himself from the Oga – the “other” government agency.”
Presumably, Agent Russell will be some type of government villain, because well – just watch any of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s most praised performances and characters. Generally, he makes a very nasty villain.

As studios reportedly blame Rotten Tomatoes for the low turn-outs, we look at whether critics have a case to answer...
Look, the last thing we want to do is get on the wrong side of The Rock. The wrestler turned Hollywood star, better known these days as Dwayne Johnson, has already fought everything from a giant electric eel (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) to Vin Diesel’s ego (the Fast & Furious franchise), and he’d probably hammer us into the ground like a tent peg.

Over the past few days, though, the reaction to his latest film, the action comedy remake of 90s TV series Baywatch, appears to have made movie critics the target of his anger. “Fans Love the movie. Critics Hate it,” Johnson wrote on Twitter. “What a disconnect. »

Apes and monsters destroy cities! That was the premise of the action-filled arcade game Rampage, which became a hit in arcades in the 1980s before making its way to home video systems. Now a movie version is on its way starring Dwayne Johnson. The game really didn't feature a plot, per se. Instead, players controlled humans who had been transformed into gigantic monsters (gorilla, lizard, wolf). In order to move to the next level, players had to wreak as much destruction as possible. Obviously, that left a huge space for the filmmakers to fill with their own story and characters. Brad Peyton came on board to direct; he previously teamed with Johnson for the family adventure Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and the earthquake survival thriller San Andreas (top). Last year he...

Earlier today, the actor took to Instagram and Facebook to share a new set photo from Rampage, featuring our first look at his character, who he described as the head of an "anti-poaching unit" based in Rwanda, along with his best friend George, a massive ape played through motion capture by Jason Liles. Here's what the actor had to say on social media below, revealing even more plot details.
"Day 1. Kicking off production. #Rampage. In our story we have three animals (gorilla, crocodile and a wolf) who fall victim to evil genetic editing, rapidly changing every strand of their DNA so they grow, evolve and mutate. Everything becomes amplified.. their size, strength, speed, agility.. and violent aggression. One of the animals infected, a rare Albino gorilla named, »

Exactly one week ago today, Dwayne Johnson announced that production started on his video game adaptation Rampage, which New Line has set for release on April 20, 2018. Dwayne Johnson also shared the first set photo as filming began. Today, we have yet another look from the set, with Joe Manganiello revealing part of the costume his character Burke wears, on his sixth day of production. The photo shows the character's bulletproof vest, which also includes an interesting comic book connection.
Joe Manganiello recently signed on to play the iconic villain Deathstroke in Warner Bros.' Dceu adventure The Batman, alongside Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne. But the actor's new character in Rampage, named Burke, thanks to the tag shown above the vest in this Instagram photo, is more of a Marvel fan. Right in the middle of this life-saving piece of clothes is a pin featuring the unmistakable logo for the Marvel anti-hero The Punisher, »

The first good video game movie may be coming next year, and it has just started filming. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Rampage, which is based on the classic arcade game of the same name, has officially started principal photography. The movie is set for release next year and with the power of The Rock and a fun premise, we may finally have a video game movie on our hands that people actually want to see.
Dwayne Johnson's frequent producing partner Hiram Garcia confirmed the news on Twitter that Rampage has officially started principal photography, which is taking place in Atlanta. The producer posted a photo that shows Malin Akerman (Watchmen, Children's Hospital), who is playing the villain in the movie, and Jake Lacy (Girls, Miss Sloane) on set shooting a scene in an office building. Here is what Hiram Garcia had to say.
"Principal photography kicks off today on our #Rampage movie. »
Roughly a year and a half after Dwayne Johnson signed on to star in Disney's Jungle Cruise, the studio has finally given the green light to the project. Production is now slated to begin in the spring of 2018, with the studio beginning its search for a director to take over the project. Dwayne Johnson will also produce through his Seven Bucks Productions company, alongside Dany Garcia. The actor-producer took to his Instagram page earlier today to confirm the news, with the following statement.
"This is a big one we've been working on. Very excited to roll up the sleeves and work on building out this huge property with our Disney partners. This #JungleCruise script was hand delivered to me personally (on the set of Ballers) by my good bud and Walt Disney's President of Production, Sean Bailey. Read the script twice that weekend and Loved It! Thank God, the script »
A few years ago, Disney announced that it was expanding its Pirates-led empire of theme-park-rides-turned-blockbuster-movie-franchises, with news that it was talking to Dwayne Johnson about starring in a film adaptation of Disneyland’s Jungle Cruise. Now, Johnson—who, between this, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, and the upcoming Jumanji sequel, apparently never met a CGI rainforest he wouldn’t go enthusiastically charging through—is finally ready to come aboard.
Jungle Cruise is one of Disneyland’s original attractions, sending park-goers through recreations of different famous jungle rivers. You can see a ride-through of the attraction below, along with “Weird” Al Yankovic’s musical take on its dangers, which are probably a little more prosaic than the ones in Johnson’s version.

The adaptation for the Rampage video game has just gained another actor: Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who currently plays Negan on The Walking Dead, is the latest to join the film’s growing cast. This also means he’ll be reuniting with his Watchmen co-star Malin Akerman, who was cast as Rampage‘s villain a few weeks ago.
Per Deadline, Morgan will play Agent Russell, a government agent working for an organization called Oga, and will have a “serious swagger and attitude”. Akerman, meanwhile, plays the head of a tech company while Dwayne Johnson is the film’s animal-loving hero, setting out to stop a giant gorilla, werewolf and crocodile that Akerman’s character created from destroying cities.

The Walking Dead‘s Negan has joined the cast of Rampage, the planned adaptation of the video game headed up by Dwayne Johnson. Morgan will play the role of Agent Russell in the film, a government official with attitude who works for an agency known as Oga.
Malin Ackerman and Moonlight‘s Naomie Harris are also amongst the cast of the movie, as is Joe Manganiello, Marley Shelton, Jake Lacy, Pj Byrne, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald and Breanne Hill. Shooting will take place in Atlanta later this month, so fits in well with the actor’s schedule with The Walking Dead, and his return as Negan.
Rampage is being directed by Brad Peyton, who directed Johnson on Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and the action/ disaster movie San Andreas. Ryan Condal and Carlton Cuse wrote the script for the film, which, like the game, will feature three monsters: A giant »

Back in February, Dwayne Johnson revealed that production will begin on Rampage in April, while sharing that his character is a "Primatologist" who serves as the head of an anti poaching unit in Rwanda. Since then, the cast has started to come together, with Naomie Harris playing a geneticist who teams up with Dwayne Johnson's character, and Malin Akerman portraying the villain, the head of the corporation responsible for creating the three monsters seen in the film. Today we have word that the cast has gotten even bigger, with The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan signing on.
Deadline reports that Jeffrey Dean Morgan will portray Agent Russell, who works for a secret government agency known as Oga, with the character described as someone who, "rolls with serious swagger and attitude." It isn't known if he has any connection to Dwayne Johnson's character or not. Regardless, he joins »
