Jerry Bruckheimer Gives National Treasure 3 And Bad Boys 3 Updates

22 April 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The sheer number of projects that producer Jerry Bruckheimer has at any given time is baffling, and frankly, it’s surprising that the man gets anything done. He oversees several long-running film franchises and TV shows, most of which have sequels in the works. Last week, he offered updates on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Beverly Hills Cop 4, and now we have news about two more: Bad Boys 3 and National Treasure 3.

The fact that a third Bad Boys film hasn’t happened yet is pretty surprising, considering that the first one grossed $141 million in 1995, and its follow up in 2003 brought home $273 million. It’s not like director Michael Bay is against sequels, and he certainly likes to make money, so why haven’t we seen a third film now that we’re 11 years past the last installment?

According to Bruckheimer, all of »

Jerry Bruckheimer Gives Update on 'Bad Boys 3' and 'National Treasure 3'

22 April 2014 1:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, producer Jerry Bruckheimer offered updates on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Beverly Hills Cop 4, but those are just two of his highly-anticipated projects that are currently in development. During a new interview with Collider, the producer offered updates on a pair of sequels, National Treasure 3 and Bad Boys 3.

Both projects have been in development for several years, even though their predecessors, 2007's National Treasure: Book of Secrets ($457 million worldwide) and 2003's Bad Boys II ($273 million worldwide) fared quite well at the box office. However, it still may be quite some time before we see either of these sequels in theaters.

Bad Boys 3 has been in the works for over 10 years, with Sony recently hiring screenwriter David Guggenheim (Safe House) to work on the script back in December. Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that the project's real problem has to deal with the timing being off, »

Assassin’s Creed movie to undergo rewrite

10 April 2014 1:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline has revealed that Ubisoft and New Regency’s forthcoming adaptation of the hit video games series Assassin’s Creed is to undergo a rewrite courtesy of Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, the screenwriters behind Ridley Scott’s biblical epic Exodus. The duo’s other upcoming credits include Darren Aronofsky’s planned George Washington biopic The General, as well as an adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Devil in the Grove and Jerry Bruckheimer disaster flick Shake.

The movie adaptation of Assassin’s Creed is being developed as a vehicle for Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave, X-Men: Days of Future Past), who is attached to co-produce and star. The original draft was penned by newcomer Michael Lesslie, with Scott Frank (The Wolverine) subsequently rewriting. A director is yet to become attached, although Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) has been rumoured as a possibility.

New writers brought in to take a stab at 'Assassin's Creed'

9 April 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) "Assassin’s Creed" has begun to gain a bit more traction, as Deadline reports the "Exodus: Gods & Kings" screenwriting team Adam Cooper and Bill Collage have signed on to script New Regency’s adaptation of the hit Ubisoft video game franchise. "Assassin’s Creed" has already cast "X-Men: Days of Future Past" star Michael Fassbender in a starring role, but a director has yet to be announced. As recently as January, "Safe House" director Daniel Espinosa was rumored to be Fox’s top choice to helm the project. No hard date has been given on the film’s release, although Fassbender said in October that the script was under development. The Ubisoft video game franchise has already released 10 installments chronicling the rivalry between a line of Assassins and an organization of Templars throughout history. Modern-day descendants of the ancient Assassins are able to experience memories of their ancestors through »

Oculus - Special Screening Report and Photos

9 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The stars of the upcoming new and original horror movie Oculus (review) gathered on the red carpet at the Chinese 6 Theater at the famous “Hollywood & Highland” corner to celebrate its premiere – and Dread Central was there!

Some folks say the poster is a little ambiguous so if you haven’t seen our junket video or read our review yet… here’s the scary skinny:

When teenage Kaylie’s younger brother, Tim, was convicted of the brutal murder of their parents, she made it her life’s mission to prove the law was wrong. She believes their deaths were at the supernatural hands of forces unleashed through an eerie antique in their home, The Lasser Glass. Tracing the provenance of the oversized mirror, adult Kaylie tracks it to an auction house, where she purchases it, and with the help of recently released Tim, she takes history’s reflections head-on. But… the »

Adam Cooper and Bill Collage have been approached by New Regency and Ubisoft Motion Pictures to rewrite the script for the upcoming movie adaptation of the video game series, Deadline reports.

It is not currently known how much of the film's original script from The Wolverine's Scott Frank and Michael Lesslie is being revised.

Cooper and Collage previously wrote the original draft for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings and have written Darren Aronofsky's George Washington film The General.

Assassin's Creed will be produced by Michael Fassbender, who will also star in the film.

The HeyUGuys Interview: Erik Skjoldbjærg discusses Pioneer

8 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Now you may not have heard of Norwegian filmmaker Erik Skjoldbjærg, but his 1997 feature film debut Insomnia, was the source material for Christopher Nolan’s eponymous remake starring Robin Williams and Al Pacino. Only recently, Skjoldbjærg’s latest production Pioneer has also been confirmed to have a forthcoming Hollywood re-imagining, with word of George Clooney taking on the role of producer.

“I’d be more than happy for them to do that,” he told us, sitting back comfortably in during our meeting in a London hotel. “I made a film out of it. If they were to say ‘we want to make a remake and shelve your version, put it in a box and try and forget it ever existed’ it would be a different issue. But that’s not the way it works. I’m proud of the fact that Christopher Nolan went and made that remake, and actually »

New Writers For Assassin's Creed Movie

8 April 2014 1:48 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Just over a year since Michael Lesslie's first draft, two new writers have been brought in to tackle the stealthy free-running of Assassin's Creed. Adam Cooper and Bill Collage will be setting the latest scenes for producer and star Michael Fassbender.The pair previously wrote the comedy Accepted and, er, the Olsen Twins vehicle New York Minute, as well as scoring the story credit for Tower Heist. But Assassin's Creed marks another high-profile gig in their in-the-works binder, slotting in alongside Darren Aronofsky's George Washington drama The General and the Ridley Scott / Christian Bale Moses epic Exodus. They're also adapting Gilbert King's Pulitzer Prize-winning Devil In The Grove for Lionsgate; crushing Jerry Bruckheimer's earthquake blockbuster Shake for Paramount; and delivering Transporter 4 for Luc Besson and EuropaCorp.Last we heard, there was talk of Daniel Espinosa (Safe House, Child 44) in the director's chair, but there's »

New writers hired for Assassin's Creed movie

7 April 2014 10:49 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 8 Apr 2014 - 06:49

The Assassin's Creed movie, starring Michael Fassbender, might be cutting its summer 2015 release a little fine...

It might just be us, but it does seem as though the August 2015 release date that's been set for the big screen debut of Assassin's Creed is looking increasingly ambitious. Most of the big summer films of 2015 are either shooting now or starting shortly. Assassin's Creed? It's just had another script rewrite ordered.

This time, Adam Cooper and Bill Collage have been tapped up to take a fresh stab at the screenplay. They've previously worked on the script for Ridley Scott's upcoming biblical blockbuster Exodus.

It's not just a working script that Assassin's Creed needs either. As far as we know, the project doesn't have a director locked down yet, in spite of rumours of Safe House's Daniel Espinosa being linked with the job. In fact, »

"Assassin's Creed" Film Scores New Scribes

7 April 2014 8:59 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Bill Collage and Adam Cooper have signed on to pen a rewrite of the script for the film adaptation of the "Assassin's Creed" video game series at New Regency and Ubisoft Motion Pictures Group.

Michael Fassbender is attached to star as Desmond Miles, a bartender who is a descendant of several lines of prominent assassins. The story weaves between present day and ancient times as Miles squares off with the Knights Templar.

Collage and Cooper, who penned Ridley Scott's upcoming Biblical epic "Exodus: Gods & Kings," will rework the original draft penned by Michael Lesslie which then scored a polish by Scott Frank.

At last report "Safe House" director Daniel Espinosa was being considered to direct, no word if that's still the case. The film remains on track for an August 7th 2015 release.

The project is just the latest film for Collage and Cooper who're in the midst of adapting »

Screenwriters Bill Collage and Adam Cooper have signed on to rewrite the script for New Regency's video game adaptation Assassin's Creed, which has Michael Fassbender attached to star.

The writers will rework the original draft by Michael Lesslie, although no specific story details have been given. We reported in January that Safe House director Daniel Espinosa was being eyed to direct, but his involvement has not been confirmed at this time.

No production schedule has been given, but the film is already slated for an August 7, 2015 release date.

Ryan Reynolds Takes Lead in Nazi-Stolen Art Drama 'Woman in Gold'

4 April 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Not too long ago, we learned that Andrew Garfield was going to join Helen Mirren in the World War II drama Woman in Gold. Using what feels like a story set after the events of The Monuments Men, the film follows the story of Maria Altmann, a woman who worked with lawyer Randol Schoenberg to take legal action against the Austrian government to recover art works that once belonged to her family but were stolen by the Nazis. Garfield was meant to play the attorney, but now Deadline reports Ryan Reynolds is surprisingly stepping into the dramatic role for The Weinstein Company film from director Simon Curtis. After a series of poorly performing films, it looks like Reynolds is ready to shake his career up a bit, and we're certainly interested to see how he fares, especially knowing how well he worked in films like Safe House and Buried.

Zac Efron to produce & star in John Grisham's The Associate

2 April 2014 11:09 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 3 Apr 2014 - 07:06

Once mooted for Shia Labeouf, John Grisham's The Associate is now set to star Zac Efron instead...

It's been some time since the last John Grisham movie adaptation made it to the screen, with 2004's Christmas With The Kranks - based on the book Skipping Christmas - the most recent one.

That said, several of his books seem suddenly destined for the big screen again. A movie take on The Testament is apparently in the hands of director Stuart Blumberg (Thanks For Sharing), although we can't find anything concrete on that at the moment. Furthermore, The Racketeer had been linked with Safe House director Daniel Espinosa, and rumours persist of a film of The Partner.

And now you can add to list The Associate. The film version of that has attracted Zac Efron, who is set to produce and star in the movie. »

Exclusive: 10 Questions with Garrett Ryan of Oculus

1 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

In the upcoming horror movie Oculus (review), Garret Ryan is relentlessly tormented by Katee Sackhoff. Not a bad gig, right? But let me tell you… this is not the sexy Starbuck "Battlestar Galactica" Sackhoff...

...and it’s certainly not the glamour gal of magazine fashion spreads and red carpet events…

In Oculus the buxom blonde is reduced to a frothing, clawing, lunatic mom who’s out to kill her daughter, Kaylie (Annalise Basso), and son, Tim (Ryan); and she will stop at nothing.

When it comes to life vs. death, Tim must take matters into his own hands. But just because crazy-mom is dead, it doesn’t mean she’s gone!

Read on to see what Garrett has to say about that and more.

Dread Central: We'd love to know all about Oculus -- who do you play, and what's the story?

Garret Ryan: I play the role of young Tim Russell. »
