Netflix Breaks Into Feature Animation With A Historical Tale Featuring Channing Tatum

31 March 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Seems like each week there's some new article bemoaning the dearth of creativity and risk-taking in film and television. The prevailing sentiment being that Hollywood is only interested in producing sequels, licensed properties, or reboots. Fair enough, lot of truth in that statement. However, when it comes to nerve, hubris, and flat-out aggressiveness for original content, look no further than the fine folks at Netflix. 

Deadline reports that actor Channing Tatum will star as U.S. President George Washington in America: The Motion Picture, a revisionist, R-rated, animated film about the founding of our country; brought to you by the creative teams behind Archer and The Lego Movie. If that doesn't satisfy your need for outside-of-the-box thinking, you might need a little more Vitamin-d in your diet.

America: The Motion Picture is Netflix's first animated feature, and it surely demonstrates their willingness to venture into new genres and categories whether »

Deadpool Writers Reflect On Their Venom Script From Ten Years Ago

27 March 2017 6:51 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

If you've been following your Marvel news, then you've surely heard that Sony is rushing to get a stand-alone film made about Spider-Man's greatest adversary, Venom. The movie will be separate from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is shooting for an R-Rating as a potential sci-fi/horror film, and already has a release date of October 5, 2018, with production beginning as soon as this fall. Sony is hoping to launch a Spider-Man universe of their own and possibly a whole "VenomVerse."

The idea for a Venom film has been floating around Hollywood since the 2007 release of Spider-Man 3, the first and only live-action film to feature the character. Most recently, a Venom movie was thought to be a part The Amazing Spider-Man Universe which also included canceled projects such as The Sinister Six and The Amazing Spider-Man 3 & 4, all of which came crashing down after The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had a lackluster box »

The Zombieland 2 Script Is In Place, All That’s Missing Is The Green Light From Sony

23 March 2017 2:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Zombieland 2 script is in place, all of the core cast members “love it,” and all that’s missing now is the green light from Sony.

At least, that’s according to writing duo Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who spoke with ComicBook.com in anticipation of Sony’s star-studded sci-fi pic, Life. First off, the latter confirmed that Zombieland 2 is still very much in active development, and both writers are currently in the process of sussing out the logistics – actor contracts, the allocated budget…you name it – before receiving the green light from the studio. Here’s the latest word on the Zombieland sequel, courtesy of Paul Wernick:

“It is [in active development]. We’re trying to get it going. All of our cast have read the script and love it. Ruben [Fleischer] is signed on. It’s just a matter of making our cast deals and making it for a budget number. »

Exclusive: How Deadpool 2 Will Avoid “Sequelitis”

18 March 2017 11:37 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

While Marvel Studios and Warners/Dceu were busy fighting over which of their superhero battle movies was better, the comic book movie that really had the biggest impact of 2016 was probably 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds, which went from an R-rated action-comedy that no one wanted to make to the global smash of a movie that grossed nearly $800 million worldwide.

A lot of that had to do with Ryan Reynolds' dedication to the character and his screenwriting collaborators Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland), who continued to grind away at writing the best script possible for Marvel’s snarkiest superhero.

After Deadpool became such a hugely popular hit, putting Reynolds back in the spandex was a given, and in the past few months, we’ve started to hear what is planned for Deadpool 2 with John Wick’s David Leitch directing, Drew Goddard (The Martian) helping »
