Despite the fact that the action-comedy sequel Red 2 doesn't hit cinemas until July, Summit Entertainment must be confident that it has another hit on its hands, with Deadline revealing that the studio has hired screenwriting siblings Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber (whose credits include Red and Red 2, along with the 2009 thriller Whiteout and last year's Hasbro board game adaptation-turned-alien actioner Battleship) to pen the script for Red 3.
The Red franchise is based upon the comic book series by Warren Ellis and Cully Hammer and centres on a trio of 'Retired, Extremely Dangerous' ex black-ops agents, portrayed by Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and John Malkovich. The forthcoming sequel sees Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) taking over directing duties from Red helmer Robert Schwentke, while Mary-Louise Parker returns to the cast alongside new additions Byung-hun Lee (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), Anthony Hopkins (Thor: The Dark World), and Catherine Zeta-Jones (Side Effects).

Check out the embedded video below for the comprehensive analysis of Star Trek: Into Darkness or read the transcript found just below that. Though the video has pictures and is better. Thanks Technology. Although the title indicates otherwise this is not an all-out attack on Star Trek: Into Darkness, in fact Star Trek: Into Darkness is a pretty great film. As of so far it could very well rank as my favourite movie of the year edging out both Iron Man 3 and somehow, unfathomably, G.I. Joe: Retaliation. I liken it to an unrelenting roller coaster, but the good kind of roller coaster. Not the kind that the person in front of you throws up and it somehow ends up on you. Or the kind of roller coaster where it breaks down and you’re stuck upside down for hours and all your blood pools in »
Ex-007 James Bond Pierce Brosnan stars in the adaptation of the seventh book in a classic 13-part spy series November Man by Bill Granger. Three days before the start of production in Belgrade, Serbia, former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko is set to join the espionage action-thriller along with Luke Bracey (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and Bill Smitrovich (Iron Man). Brosnan said: It’s the older-spy, younger-spy (story.) The script is well-written. … We’ve had the rights for some years now and finally all the roads point in the same direction, so we’re going to do it. Why not? If not now, then when? ‘I think there’s enough »

Star Trek Into Darkness grossed an estimated $11.4 million on its first full day in theaters, a number that seemed "sort of lackluster" for the much-anticipated J.J. Abrams-directed sequel, a box-office anaylist said. "Sci-fi does have a sort of glass ceiling," Exhibitor Relations' Jeff Bock said Friday. "Maybe it reached a max potential on the first one. Iron Man 3, meanwhile, smashed through the $1 billion mark worldwide, and crossed the $300 million mark domestically, its studio announced. While the Iron Man 3 milestones were expected, the Star Trek Into Darkness stats were not. The film's Thursday gross was reminiscent of the one posted by G.I. Joe: Retaliation. But »

Brosnan’s Irish DreamTime announced the project at Cannes last year as part of a multipicture financing and distribution deal with the Solution Entertainment Group, with “November Man” set as the launch title and framed as a potential franchise-starter.

Almost exactly one year ago, the big news that Pierce Brosnan’s longtime passion project was moving forward was announced on the eve of the Cannes film market. Now, a year later, November Man is filling out its cast with three more actors before the project begins shooting on May 20. Oblivion star Olga Kurylenko, G.I.

Paramount and Amazon.com have been taking pre-orders for the Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD versions of Jon M. Chu's sequel/reboot G.I. Joe: Retaliation since the weekend the film made its theatrical debut. It seems like it's been a long wait since then and now for a release date, but that very date has now been outed.
The folks over at Joe fansite Hisstank have uncovered a sales sheet for G.I. Joe: Retaliation that clearly prints a July 30, 2013 release date. This sheet also reveals that bonus features will run over one hour in length and include - at minimum - the eight-part making of feature 'G.I. Joe: Declassified,' deleted scenes, and the ambiguous "more!"
Sadly there is nothing about a director's cut mentioned, though as a consolation Paramount is offering free personalized dog tags with each Blu-ray and DVD combo pack. There's no word on whether »
"Zombieland" co-writer/executive producer Rhett Reese took to Twitter to vent a bit upon hearing the news that Amazon will not be moving forward with the series. While reviews were definitely mixed, he seemed to place the blame on fans of the film who refused to embrace the concept.
Here are Reese's comments:
Our Zombieland series will not be moving forward on Amazon. Sad for everyone involved.
I'll never understand the vehement hate the pilot received from die-hard Zombieland fans. You guys successfully hated it out of existence.
Anyway, we did our best, and we're very proud of our team.

Amazon.com released a Zombieland pilot episode over their instant video service last month, but it has been revealed that they will not move forward with an order of additional episodes. The pilot was released along with a number of original pilots in April, but reaction to the episode was less than positive from many of those who had seen it.
While this is likely the end for Zombieland: The Series, it is possible that another company could pick up the show. If we hear anything else about the project moving forward, we’ll be sure to let readers know. If you’d like a preview of the pilot, we’ve included the official trailer below.

Revenue nearly tripled to $481.7 million from $179.5 million.
In a report released Thursday, the privately held studio cited strong box office for “Skyfall” and “The Hobbit” plus the home entertainment release of “Skyfall” and James Bond library promotions.
The two films generated theatrical revenue of $139.5 million; home entertainment revenue amounted $201.7 million.
“In addition, we generated higher revenue from television content due to the domestic delivery of ‘Vikings,’ and higher net revenue from co-produced films as these films progressed through their distribution cycle,” the company said in the report.
MGM said the results did not recognize theatrical revenue for two titles it co-financed — “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters,” released in January, or “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” released in March by Paramount.
“Skyfall,” a Sony co-production, has generated $1.1 billion in worldwide box office. »

The numbers do the roaring for MGM. In the first three months of this year it generated net income of $57.4M, +150.7% vs the period last year, on revenues of $481.7M, +168.4%. It shouldn’t be a surprise. With the late 2012 release of the James Bond film Skyfall, and a 50% stake in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the studio had $139.5M in worldwide box office revenues, up from $0.5M last year. The company says that it has to wait for costs to be covered before it can recognize revenue from two films it co-financed: Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters and G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Home entertainment also was way up — to $201.7M from $36.2M — with the home video release of Skyfall and piggy-back promotions for its James Bond library. But worldwide television licensing was -3.2% to $109.3M. MGM’s 19.1% stake in Epix delivered $5M to net earnings, +16.3%. The results “exceeded our expectations” and “position »

Clear eyes, full hearts: According to a new report from Deadline.com, Imagine Entertainment producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard are planning to use crowdfunding to help bring "Friday Night Lights" back to the big screen. Imagine is the studio that produced five seasons of the acclaimed television series, which itself started as a book by Buzz Bissinger and a movie from director Peter Berg.
"We made a terrific feature with Pete Berg, turned it into a terrific TV series and will now make a movie from that series," Grazer told Deadline.com. "I'm not sure such a thing has been done before."
For fans, the idea that the future of "Friday Night Lights" rests in the interiors of their wallets should be of little surprise. After Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell used Kickstarter to fund a big-screen version of cult series "Veronica Mars," "Friday Night Lights" co-star Adrianne Palicki »

Everybody makes such a big deal about Dwayne .The Rock. Johnson, and how he has managed to work his way into a steady stream of muscle-bound pictures, from G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Pain & Gain to the upcoming Fast & Furious 6. But his Fast cohort Vin Diesel has a couple of geek-worthy projects in his pocket, including Riddick, which is catching attention with a full-length trailer shared via Machinima.s YouTube page. The tease establishes a story we already knew: The left-for-dead antihero Diesel has played in two previous films finds himself on the run from a team of highly trained bounty hunters on a forgotten sun . only, there.s a much bigger problem that all of the fighters are going to have to face if they want to live to see another adventure. I.ll say this about Riddick: The effects in this trailer look fantastic. The sun planet, as »
So the Parkour elephant in the room is that remaking Luc Besson.s cool French action flick District B13 does not need to be done.But since it.s happening in the form of director Camille Delamarre.s Brick Mansions, all we can hope for is some flashy balls-out action. And stars Paul Walker and David Belle will need to protect their necks from a newly cast co-star. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Wu Tang Clan member RZA will be wearing his acting hat for the EuropaCorp and Relativity Media-produced film. Last year he released his directorial debut The Man With the Iron Fists, which he also wrote, starred in and wrote the music for with Howard Drossin. He also got quite a few laughs for his cameo as Blind Master in G.I. Joe: Retaliation earlier this year. Next up, he.ll be co-starring in Fox.s action »
Paul Walker’s parkour-tastic remake of Luc Besson’s “District 13″ (aka “Banlieue 13″) has added two new faces to its cast, joining Walker and original “District 13″ star David Belle in the film. French-Colombian actress Catalina Denis and all-American rapper RZA have both signed up to enter the mansion, with RZA (previously in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”, and before that, starring/directing/writing/catering “The Man with the Iron Fists”) set to play the film’s villain, while Denis will play the love interest for Belle’s character. Once again written by Besson and his go-to American writer Robert Mark Kamen, “Brick Mansions” will pretty much follow the plot of the original, with Walker playing “an undercover cop who is tasked with going into a tenement named Brick Mansions in order to disarm a neutron bomb possessed by the community’s drug warlord.” RZA will play that drug warlord, while »
