Nicholas Hoult is stepping into the shoes of legendary American author Jd Salinger for Rebel in the Rye.

There are some films that, upon viewing, you just can’t help but fall in love with (and Night of the Living Deb is not the only film at this years Frightfest to hit me in my horror-loving heart). Back in 2009, at my very first Frightfest as a reviewer – covering the festival for Bloody Disgusting – there was one such film… Infestation. A parody of nature run amok movies like The Swarm, Phase IV and Them!, Infestation was a near-perfect comedic take on the killer-insect genre (even though those original creature-features are funny enough as they are) with stellar performances from Chris Marquette and Ray Wise. Well that was 6 years ago. a long six years. Since then director Kyle Rankin has been »

Let's all take a minute to appreciate Dave Franco, in all his Gif-worthy glory. »
Amy Schumer successfully crossed over into the world of movies, so now it's time for her next big project. The funny gal of Inside Amy Schumer found wide success with Trainwreck, her film co-starring herself and SNL vet Bill Hader in a story about a woman who needs to get her life right. But how does one top such a raunchy, signature Schumer comedy? According to Deadline, that would be a mother-daughter-vacation-gone-wrong extravaganza. The trade reports that Schumer's next film project is taking that shape. The still-untitled film was written by Katie Dippold, who wrote Paul Feig's The Heat, The Heat 2 and all-female Ghostbusters remake. She based the project on her own relationship with her mother, and the directing job was offered to Warm Bodies' Jonathan Levine. He's apparently still weighing his options, but Schumer is on board. While he makes his decision, it's »
Amy Schumer is deservedly riding high on the success of her self-scripted movie, Trainwreck – in addition to her award-winning, Emmy nominated TV show, Inside Amy Schumer. This being the case, the world has been awaiting news of her next film project – and it seems that project may have found itself a director, in the form of Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies).
Since his well-received romantic zombie comedy in 2013, Levine has been kicking his heels in television, until moving back to feature film with the upcoming Seth Rogen-Joseph Gordon-Levitt comedy, The Night Before. Though he has not yet officially signed on for Amy Schumer’s next movie, Levine is reportedly close to a deal on the project.
The film in question is currently untitled, but will apparently revolve around the relationship between a mother and daughter, as that connection comes under the pressure of extreme circumstances, when an exotic vacation goes awry. »

Suicide Squad: Director David Ayer and actor Joel Kinnaman shared new photos from Suicide Squad, revealing Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) as a pretty good tattoo artist -- as well as the tattoo itself, below -- and Will Smith as a not-very-good tattoo artist.

[Collider] Amy Schumer: Hot off the success of Trainwreck (above), which has made more than $100 million worldwide, Amy Schumer wants Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies) to direct her next comedy.

Last September, Movieweb was invited to the Brooklyn, New York set of Sony's 'Untitled Xmas 2015' release. Almost a year later, we have a great title for what looks to be an absolutely hilarious film. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, and Anthony Mackie star in the holiday comedy - The Night Before. Directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50,Warm Bodies), who also co-wrote with Producer Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen. This article will have a fair amount of spoilers. I won't give too much away, but will give a heads up for anything too revealing. Also, since Movieweb is a family friendly website of wholesome entertainment, all the cursing and drug references will be starred out. You'll see below in the interview that Seth Rogen couldn't care less if we wrote about the plot. His thoughts were, "No one comes to see our movies for the surprises." That's as rare a statement as »

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.
In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems to put the world out of joint. His symphonic flow of images contrasts cold, »

Marvel and Sony made headlines recently when they tapped little-known helmer Jon Watts to direct the next Spider-Man movie, so it’s unfortunately inevitable that the bulk of attention afforded to Watts’ sophomore feature, indie thriller Cop Car (his first was under-the-radar horror Clown), will take the form of one simple question: what did the studios see in the director that they didn’t in more accomplished contenders like Warm Bodies‘ Jonathan Levine?
We may never know for certain what specifically landed Watts the gig, but Cop Car‘s killer opening scene is a pretty strong bet. Marvel and Sony have stated their intentions to skew young with this wall-crawler, imparting the incredible emotional stakes of teen life without turning the pic into a world-in-peril superhero movie. And in a single scene in Cop Car, Watt astutely captures that heady feeling of youth we can all remember: of being young, »

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that audiences who enjoy zombie movies must be in want of more zombie movies. However, the trick is finding new ways to invent the zombie genre. Screen Gems recently wrapped up two films that promise to change the way we think of zombies.
Considered a relatively small panel by those around me, no expected much out of Screen Gems. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Ppz) sounded like it was going to be a campy horror film, and the moderator simply called Patient Zero “interesting.” There were whispers floating in the air about both movies. No one knew how to feel until the cast was announced and the trailer for Ppz was shown on screen.
