Lori Evans Taylor Given Bed Rest

27 July 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Proving that scripts written on spec are still ocassionally currency in Hollywood, the horror thriller Bed Rest has just come out of practically nowhere to get the studios excited. Lori Evans Taylor is the writer, and MGM the company that grabbed the rights, making a preemptive deal for a cool six figures. Chris Sparling (Buried) will produce.Sounding like a meaty one-woman show for the right actress, Bed Rest revolves around an expectant woman, you guessed it, confined to her duvet due to complications with her pregnancy. And while she's there, "bad things happen". Films like Disturbia (and by association Rear Window) are being thrown around as comparisons, but we'd suggest there's a bit of Stephen King's Gerald's Game in that set-up too.Spec scripts were big business back in the '80s and '90s, with writers like Shane Black and Joe Eszterhas coining it before the bubble burst. »

New Projects: Joe Carnahan circles ‘Bad Boys 3′

11 June 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Unless you’re talking about Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters or Toy Story 3, it’s usually not a good sign to hear of a sequel to a long retired franchise, least of all from a new, upstart director (just ask Jurassic World). This week however a director started a project that might even be an improvement on the original.

Deadline exclusively reported Joe Carnahan’s (The Grey) possible involvement in Bad Boys 3. David Guggenheim (Safe House) penned a screenplay for the sequel to Michael Bay’s 1995 and 2003 films, and the studio is hoping to move negotiations along quickly, as they plan to approach both Will Smith and Martin Lawrence to return.

We talked recently about Brad Pitt‘s involvement on a new project just bought by Netflix, but their top competitor Amazon has signed another major name: Terry Gilliam. Indiewire spoke with the cult director and Monty Python alum, »

Joe Carnahan To Rewrite And Possibly Direct 'Bad Boys 3'

10 June 2015 6:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For pretty much a decade, Sony has been trying to get Will Smith and Martin Lawrence to return and make "Bad Boys 3." In 2009, the studio hired Peter Craig ("The Town") to write a script, and when that one didn't take, David Guggenheim ("Safe House," "Stolen") was tapped to give it a whirl. And it seems more work needs to be done, and another high profile name is being brought into the fold. Joe Carnahan ("The Grey," "The A-Team," "Smokin' Aces") has been hired to rewrite the script with an eye to possibly direct the movie as well. So, time to start popping the champagne? Not quite. The most important cog in this machine, the picky Will Smith, hasn't agreed to anything just yet and Deadline notes that Sony is racing to get a new script done so the actor can "consider" the movie for his next project once he's finished with "Suicide Squad. »

Joe Carnahan in talks for Bad Boys 3

10 June 2015 6:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that a new Bad Boys film, the third in the franchise, is still in active development and may have found itself a director.

Smokin’ Aces and Narc helmer Joe Carnahan has been linked to the film, with early talks between the director and Sony rumoured to have already taken place. David Guggenheim (Safe House) has written the new film, which Sony is hoping will go into production within the next year after star Will Smith has completed his work on Warner Bros. Pictures’ DC adaptation, Suicide Squad. As yet, there’s no word on whether fellow co-star Martin Lawrence will feature.

Bad Boys was released in 1995, with its sequel arriving in 2003, and together the two films grossed over $410 million worldwide.

The Grey's Joe Carnahan is in early talks to write and direct Bad Boys 3

10 June 2015 1:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bad Boys 3 could be moving forward with Joe Carnahan attached as director.

It's believed that The Grey director is in early talks to work on a draft script from Safe House's David Guggenheim, as well as possibly direct the action sequel.

Deadline first reported the news, which would mean Carnahan would take over from Michael Bay, who directed the first two Bad Boys films.

It's thought that Sony Pictures is hoping star Will Smith will take on the film as his next project after finishing work on Suicide Squad.

Smith starred alongside Martin Lawrence in 1995's Bad Boys, before both actors reprised their roles in 2003's sequel Bad Boys II.

In 2014, producer Jerry Bruckheimer told Digital Spy that he wanted Bay to return to the franchise.

"We'd love to get Michael Bay [but] he's very busy right now. Hopefully we can twist his arm and get him in there, »

Joe Carnahan May Wrangle Bad Boys 3

9 June 2015 11:08 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The idea of a Bad Boys 3 has been floating around since at least 2009, but Sony hasn’t yet found an idea or script it really likes. Safe House writer David Guggenheim was most recently working up the screenplay, and now the studio has The Grey’s Joe Carnahan in early talks to take a crack at a new draft with an eye to potentially directing.It’s still all early days – Carnahan does not have a deal yet, but Sony definitely wants this brought to a place that could make Will Smith happy enough to sign on quickly, so that he can consider working on it after Suicide Squad. Whether that happens remains to be seen, and the third outing has certainly waited long enough already, so it can stand a bit more of a delay. But Carnahan as a director would also seem to be a good choice »

9 June 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Joe Carnahan, writer and director for action flicks like The Grey and The A-Team, has been reportedly approached by Sony to take over their Bad Boy franchise. According to reports Carnahan could be taking a look at a previous draft of the script from Safe House writer David Guggenheim and reworking it. Carnahan may also direct this third film. The same report over at Deadline suggests that Sony wants to get moving on this and sign up Carnahan so they have a film ready for Will Smith to consider once he is done with Suicide Squad. Martin Lawrence is unofficially waiting at home by phone for something, anything, to happen. Personally, I love the Bad Boy flicks. Ask me some time about the time I went to...

9 June 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony is eyeing Joe Carnahan as a potential director for Will Smith’s “Bad Boys 3.”

The studio is in early talks with Carnahan to do a re-write on a “Bad Boys 3″ script by “Safe House” writer David Guggenheim with an eye to directing.

Carnahan To Pen, Maybe Direct "Bad Boys 3"

9 June 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filmmaker Joe Carnahan ("Narc," "The Grey") is in early talks to pen a new draft and possibly direct a third film in the "Bad Boys" action film franchise.

Carnahan will definitely be rewriting the script by David Guggenheim ("Safe House") and could potentially helm the project for which both Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are being sought to return.

Carnahan does not have a deal in place yet, but his masculine sensibility and efficient filmmaking style seems a good fit for the franchise which had two previous entries directed by Michael Bay.

Daniel Espinosa Will Not Be Boston Strong

25 May 2015 7:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Still reeling from the box office failure of his critically derided historical thriller Child 44, director Daniel Espinosa has departed the Boston Marathon bombing drama Boston Strong.

Creative differences were cited as the reason for the split, though no details were available as to what those differences entailed. Espinosa, who broke out with 2010’s Easy Money and went on to helm action hit Safe House, has been going through a rough patch lately; Child 44 was reportedly a monster to tackle in the editing room, and even with extensive post-production work, it became a high-profile disappointment for Lionsgate.

Boston Strong, which The Fighter scribes Eric Johnson and Paul Tamasy originally adapted from the book of the same name by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge, focuses on the manhunt for bombing suspects Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev in the immediate aftermath of a devastating attack during the 2013 Boston Marathon, and how the »

Boston turned out to be too strong for Daniel Espinosa. The director, who is coming off the major box office disappointment of Child 44, has fallen off of Boston Strong, the drama based around the events of the Boston Marathon bombings. "Creative differences" is the reason cited for the departure, according to sources, although it is unclear what those were.
