Channing Tatum has expressed his desire to get behind the camera lately, and at one point toyed with the idea of directing "Magic Mike: Xxl." But making such a big leap was daunting and he expressed a desire to make a smaller film first. And while he's not helming the stripper dramedy sequel, he is making that smaller movie. Tatum and his pal Reid Carolin will co-direct an adaptation of Matthew Quick's "Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock." The book from the "Silver Linings Playbook" author follows "a troubled high schooler who plans to kill his best friend and then himself." James Ponsoldt ("Smashed") penned a previous draft of the script, but a new writer is being sought. Tatum might star in the movie too, but nothing is locked down yet. [THR] “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” made $375 million worldwide in 2013, so where’s that sequel on the release date docket? Well, there’s »

From Stephen Sommers to Jon M. Chu to...Martin Campbell? That may be the progression for the G.I. Joe franchise as a source claims the Casino Royale and Goldeneye director is the studio's top choice to helm the sequel to G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Yes, Campbell is also responsible for Green Lantern, but that still makes him the most talented director associated with this franchise. G.I. Joe: Retaliation raised a lot of eyebrows when it suddenly moved it's release date almost a full year just »

Although both movies drew highly negative reviews, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and G.I. Joe: Retaliation both pulled in over $300 million apiece for Paramount, making a third installment of the action-adventure franchise all but inevitable. We learned way back in July that Lethal Weapon 4 scribe Jonathan Lemkin had been tasked with scripting G.I. Joe 3, and that Jon M. Chu would not be returning to direct, but outside of that, it’s been radio silence on the threequel. Now, however, there are whispers around the interwebs that Paramount has singled out a replacement for Chu: Casino Royale director Martin Campbell.
According to Schmoes Know, which claims to have learned of the helmer’s possible involvement via the same shadowy but “reliable” source that (rightly) revealed that Michael B. Jordan would be in the Fantastic Four reboot, Campbell is the studio’s top choice and has just entered talks. »

According to Schmoes Know, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers: Age of Extinction) is looking at director Martin Campbell to take over the reins of G.I. Joe 3 following the departure of G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer Jon M. Chu.
Campbell hasn’t directed a film since 2011’s Green Lantern, while his previous credits include No Escape, GoldenEye, The Legend of Zorro, Casino Royale and Edge of Darkness. It’s unknown whether Cambell has any interest in the G.I. Joe gig, or if there’s even any truth to the report in the first place…

Jon M. Chu, the director of the Step Up films and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, is set to develop a new movie project called Can’t Touch This. As most of you know, that is the name of a popular song written by M.C. Hammer. The film is a high school dance comedy that will be set in the 1990s. Having grown up as a teenager in the '90s, the thought of a dance movie called Can’t Touch This made me laugh. I’m glad to hear that it’s going to be a comedy because hard to imagine a movie with a title like that could be taken seriously, unless they tackle it like films such as Dazed and Confused or American Graffiti. Those both had a good balance of drama and comedy.
Chu is definitely the best man for the job. This seems to fit in with »

“The Machinist” director Brad Anderson has signed up to helm Sony’s “Bourne-esque spy tale” (aren’t they all?) “Shadow Run,” according to Deadline. The script, written by “Cliffhanger” writer Joe Gazzam, was the subject a frenzied bidding war earlier this year and is being kept under tight wraps with no plot details revealed yet. Truth be told, an action thriller isn’t too much of a stretch for Anderson’s sensibilities, since his filmography has trended towards genre fare with films like “Session 9” and “Vanishing on 7th Street.” If anything, at least “Shadow Run” has a bigger potential to actually reach audiences, as opposed to his latest output, “Stonehearst Asylum,” which saw release last month unbeknownst to anyone. Here’s hoping the next one washes away the stink of Anderson’s Halle Berry-starring “The Call.” Jon M. Chu, who has made dance ("Step Up 2: The Streets »

Chu has had much success from the teen-dance movie genre having directed fan favourites Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up 3D and Can’t Touch This (named after the classic Mc Hammer song) will seem him depart from action movies like G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Chu has also just wrapped on a big screen adaptation of Jem and the Hollograms and recently opened up Chu Studios, which saw him produce dance webseries The Lxd.
Storyline for Can’t Touch This is being kept under wraps at the moment, but the script is being penned by Annie Mebane and Steve Basilone (Community) who have also worked on retro comedy The Goldbergs for ABC. It is »

Exclusive: Jem and the Holograms and G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer Jon M. Chu is going old school. He and producing partner Hieu Ho have sold to Focus Features new project Can’t Touch This, a high school dance comedy set in the golden era of the 1990s.
The teen dance milieu has been a fruitful one for Chu, who launched his career with fan favorite sequels Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up 3D and has quickly become one of Hollywood’s in-demand studio directors. Storyline is being kept under wraps, although the title alone evokes a part of the decade that was too legit to quit. Chu and Ho originated the idea then tapped Happy Endings and Community writers Annie Mebane and Steve Basilone to script. Mebane and Basilone know their way around retro comedies; they’re producers on ABC’s ’80s-set The Goldbergs.

When Foxcatcher arrives in theaters this weekend — the dark, true-life drama about the murder of Olympic wrestling champion Dave Schultz (played by Mark Ruffalo) — it may leave you with a looming question, “Wait, is that really Channing Tatum?” No, not just because Tatum — like his co-star Steve Carell (who plays eccentric millionaire and Schultz’s murderer, John du Pont) — is virtually unrecognizable due to the film’s stunning physical transformations. It’s because Tatum, as the tortured Olympic wrestler (and Dave’s brother) Mark Schultz, reaches staggering new heights as an actor.
The star of Step Up, White House Down, 21 Jump Street, and Magic Mike, among others, not only turns out one of this year’s most harrowing performances, but one of the very best. Even Tatum’s biggest naysayers (yes, they exist) will be blown away by the actor’s emotionally and physically daunting work in Foxcatcher. »
As ridiculous as it was, I really enjoyed Louis Leterrier‘s Now You See Me. The idea of a heist film with magic won me over. Now You See Me 2 is preparing to move into production, and Lionsgate has officially announced the cast and offered up a plot summary.
The movie will reunite the ensemble cast from the first film with three of the four horseman returning, including Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco, alongside Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine. Isla Fisher was in the first movie, but her name wasn't on the press release we received. The screenplay was written by Pete Chiarelli and Ed Solomon. Here are the story details:
One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their mind-bending spectacles, the Four Horsemen resurface in Now You See Me 2 only to find themselves face to face with »

Just above is your first look at Kurt Russell in Bone Tomahawk, a brutally violent, character-driven story following a sheriff (Russell), a gunslinger, a befuddled oldster and a cowboy as they attempt to rescue a group of captives from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes. The film co-stars Richard Jenkins, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, David Arquette, Fred Melamed, Sean Young, Sid Haig and Michael Pare. Showtime will be joining HBO and CBS and launching a streaming-only service sometime in 2015. Yahoo David Chase says he's open to the idea of a prequel to "The Sopranos": "Even if I did it, it wouldn't be 'The Sopranos' that was on the air - obviously at least one person is gone that we would need. There are a couple of eras that would be interesting for me to talk about, about Newark, N.J. One would be (the) late '60s, early '70s, »

Lionsgate has announced that Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, Horns), Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex, The Interview) and Taiwanese megastar Jay Chou have joined the cast of the upcoming sequel Now You See Me 2, which is being directed by Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation).
Depsite previously stating that Isla Fisher would return, the actress is absent from this latest official announcement, with Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Michael Caine and Dave Franco the only names mentioned as reprising their roles.
The plot of Now You See Me 2 is being kept pretty much under wraps, but the press release does state that “one year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their mind-bending spectacles, the Four Horsemen resurface only to find themselves face to face with a new enemy who enlists them to pull off their most dangerous heist yet.”

Over the past few months, a handful of notable actors and directors have flirted with Lionsgate/Summit’s magic heist sequel Now You See Me 2. Stars such as Lizzy Caplan, Jay Chou and Daniel Radcliffe have been linked to the project — though Michael Caine outed the involvement of the latter actor — while G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer Jon M. Chu has been tipped to direct.
Today, Lionsgate has officially unveiled the full cast list for the follow-up to 2013’s surprise hit, and it turns out that all of the aforementioned talents will indeed have a role in the anticipated sequel.
We know from Caine’s aforementioned interview that Radcliffe has boarded the project to play the son to his Arthur Tressler’s character, while Jay Chou has signed on to star as Li — a role that remains overly vague at this stage.

Technicolor is mostly known for visual innovations, but the company has long had a niche in sound and recently has elevated itself from supporting player to star in the audio realm.
On the creative side, Technicolor upgraded its sound facilities with the opening of its state-of-the-art facility on the Paramount lot, then lured creative talent to match, including re-recording mixers Anna Behlmer, Scott Millan and Greg P. Russell.
The Paramount facility was “another step in Technicolor’s audio strategy,” says Boris Teksler, Technicolor’s senior executive VP, Technology.
That strategy, says Teksler, is to answer the question: “How do we take the creative intent of directors and permeate it across a myriad of different viewing experiences?” While Technicolor Paramount is aimed at the theatrical experience, the company wants to extend that to TVs and mobile devices, Teksler says.
That kind of forward-thinking helped the company recruit Millan, who was settled »

British critics adored Pride, the comedy-drama based on the true story of the gay Londoners who rallied to support Welsh miners in their confrontation with Margaret Thatcher in 1984, and some were moved to tears.
Audiences in the UK were rather less enthused as the film starring Bill Nighy, Paddy Considine, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton has pocketed a modest $US6.2 million in seven weeks, tracking more like a Made in Dagenham than a Calendar Girls or Billy Elliot.
The reaction seems similar here judging by the Matthew Warchus-directed film.s $522,000 debut on 130 screens, and $595,00 with festival screenings and previews.
Distributor eOne emailed exhibitors this morning asking them to maintain screens in hopes that word-of-mouth will kick in this weekend, particularly among the target audience of mature females.
It was another soft weekend as takings dropped by 9% to $9 million according to Rentrak.s estimates. Year-to-date ticket sales have generated $896 million, »

“I’ll be back.” Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cyborg warrior will make good on that promise next summer when Paramount unleashes Terminator: Genisys to theaters. While familiar characters like Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese will be played by new faces, Arnold brings his stalwart screen presence to the franchise’s next chapter, as mentioned in the film’s recently revealed plot details accompanied by new photos.
In their first look at the next installment of the Terminator franchise, EW debuted a photo of Emilia Clarke’s Sarah Connor with Jai Courtney’s Kyle Reese on a motorcycle and another picture featuring Jason Clarke’s John Connor next to Matt Smith (Doctor Who) with the T-800 endoskeleton lurking behind them.

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’ve got the first official look at the cast of the upcoming reboot Terminator: Genisys, with Emilia Clarke (Sarah Connor), Jai Courtney (Kyle Reese), Jason Clarke (John Connor) and Matt Smith (a “close ally” of John Connor) featuring on two covers to the latest issue of the magazine. Take a look…
According to EW, the reboot is “set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah, from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected… »
