Patrick Schwarzenegger may have his issues with his father, but he’s going into the same business. The handsome scion has been cast in Scouts vs. Zombies as a popular high school quarterback at odds with the scout troop. Quarterback? Here’s hoping for some locker room scenes.
I admit that I haven’t had time to listen to it yet, but Keahu Kahuanui joined David Blue for his Out of the Blue podcast. What could be better than two hot geeky guys who have played a couple of our favorite gay characters chatting?

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier putting up huge numbers, it may seem like we're already in the midst of the Summer box office season. Formally, though, the season kicks off on May 2nd with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and then runs through the end of August.As is tradition here at Box Office Mojo, we're starting the season off with a list of predictions for the highest-grossing movies. Titles are ranked based on their domestic box office forecast, though foreign predictions are included as well.The Summer will likely be dominated by high-profile sequels like How to Train Your Dragon 2, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. There's still plenty of room for original titles to break out, though, and comedies in particular should have a strong showing this year.Overall, though, the crop doesn't »

No longer just the punchline of a running gag in Seth MacFarlane’s Ted, Twentieth Century Fox is looking to make a new adaptation of Flash Gordon. The character, of course, predates the cheesy 80s movie that MacFarlane had so much fun with- having debuted as a comic strip in 1934- but this will likely be the biggest splash he’s ever made. Producer John Davis has been gunning for a new Flash Gordon for quite a while and, most recently, spent a year working on getting the rights to the character from the Hearst Corporation. Having succeeded, he’s now tapped J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay to write the script, based off of a treatment by George Nolfi (The Bourne Ultimatum).

About a week ago, news hit the web that camp classic Flash Gordon – the subject of Mark Wahlberg’s and Seth MacFarlane’s fawning adoration in 2012′s Ted – might be getting the remake treatment, with emphasis on the word “might”. The announcement sounded somewhat fishy on paper, pegging Star Trek 3 writing duo J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay as the screenplay’s architects while offering no mentions of a producing studio and no official source to back it up; all of these details add up to a hot rumor but not necessarily anything authoritative.
But it turns out that all those rumblings about Flash Gordon‘s modern-day rebirth were accurate, if somewhat obscured, and that the new movie will in fact ...

Must..resist…doing…classic Queen “Aaa-aaaahhhh”. 20th Century Fox has secured the rights to the classic comic-strip character who made his name back in 1934, a mighty 80 years ago. Many serials would follow, starting in 1936 with Buster Crabbe in the lead, and a 1980 film famous for its Queen soundtrack tried, but failed, to cash0in on the popularity of Sci-fi due to Star Wars. The tale of Flash Gordon sees the titular polo player travel to Mongo and battle the evil ruler, Ming the Merciless.
Writers of the next Star Trek film, Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne, are coming up with a first draft for the proposed reboot, with suggestions that George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureu) may direct as he has stipulated the outline of the film. That’s quite an interesting group to tackle such old material, so let’s hope they update it accordingly.

I've been asked by another site to list what I think will be the top ten films at this summer's global box office. No small task, but maybe it will be a little easier than predicting domestic results because only the most popular will be considered while films like Sex Tape, 22 Jump Street, Tammy and Think Like a Man Too don't really stand a chance. All that said, what this will definitely do is help me prepare for the Summer Box Office Challenge on the podcast where the draft for the months of May-August is coming up shortly. Taking a look at the obvious contenders we have The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Transformers: Age of Extinction, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Guardians of the Galaxy and probably Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And that's seven so we only need three more. »

After original Flash Gordon star Sam J. Jones made a brief appearance in the 2012 comedy Ted, many fans hoped it could revive the gestating Flash Gordon reboot that has been stuck in development hell for several years. Although nothing has been confirmed at this time, FilmDivider is reporting that Star Trek 3 writers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay are currently working on the script, with producer Jon Davis currently seeking a studio deal for the project.
This is the first we're hearing about the writers working on Flash Gordon, but a Mormon Artist interview with J.D. Payne also mentions the project briefly, although there are no quotes attributed to the screenwriter regarding Flash Gordon.
Thanks to Total Film, we’ve got a new still from The Matrix duo Andy and Lana Wachowski’s next sci-fi offering Jupiter Ascending, which gives us a fresh look at the film’s two leads, Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street) and Mila Kunis (Ted)…
Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
Jupiter Ascending is set for release on July 25th, »

A new big screen adaptation of Flash Gordon has been in and out of development for years. Back in 2008 Sony Pictures was moving forward with the project and even had Breck Eisner attached to direct it. For one reason or another the project fell apart and never happened. It seems like there's been no movement since.
Now Film Divider is reporting that there's a fresh attempt to bring Flash Gordon to the big screen, and that Star Trek 3 writers Jd Payne and Patrick McKay have been hired to pen the script. Nothing these two guys have written has made it to the big screen yet, but they did write a script for Bad Robot called Boilerplate, which hasn't been produced yet. Apparently these guys are supposed to be a couple of hot up-and-coming writers.
They’ve apparently developed a new take on Flash with producer Jon Davis and are »

One of the more memorable storylines of Seth MacFarlane’s Ted involved the main characters’ obsession with the 1980 camp classic Flash Gordon, an adaptation of the 1930s comic strip-turned serial film series by Alex Raymond. One of the most entertaining “bad” movies out there, director Mike Hodges’ cheeseball epic is only one of a great many versions of the sci-fi property, most of which were made for television.
The original comic followed the adventures of the title character, a polo player (a football quarterback in the 1980 film) who along with companion Dale Arden is kidnapped by the half-crazy scientist Dr. Zarkov and ends up on the planet Mongo, where they fight the ...

When it was originally announced that critical pariah Michael Bay was to be directing the big screen incarnation of the nostalgically popular 1980’s vehicular metamorphoses toys The Transformers, it seemed to be the perfect match of artistic vision and material. With large scale auto-centric set-pieces already scattered throughout his CV, recall the spectacular freeway chase from the otherwise ridiculous Bad Boys 2, and a penchant for a genuinely enjoyable sense of infectious fun, evident in apologists favourites such as The Rock and Armageddon, his pyrotechnic pornographic sensibilities would make real the plastic clashes between the Autobots and Decepticons in a way every big kid dreamed of.
A franchise on the verge of Extinction? No chance.
The notion that Age of Extinction is a “reboot” isn’t an altogether welcome one, because for all of the crass, ibuprofen accompanied volume control, and Nuts magazine incarnate issues scattered throughout Revenge of the »

So in case you were living under a rock this weekend or better yet, you were consuming a lot of great HBO, you might have realized the MTV Movie Awards took place (“The Hunger Games” won a bunch of shit, just like the “Twilight” movies before it). That means every studio and their mother released some kind of new clip or TV Spot and we have a few more stragglers today. What do you do if your first writer/directorial effort is a smash hit? Well, if you’re comedian and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, you use the success of “Ted” and parlay it into the cachet of doing a western. And a western comedy, no less. I can just see the execs at Universal trying to agonizingly squeeze amused looks in their faces during the pitch. A western comedy? It sounds like a recipe for box-office poison, but »

When the comedy Ted hit theaters in 2012, we got a taste of Flash Gordon all over again, albeit in the form of coked up 80s film star Sam Jones. But now it looks like the hero who was given his own sci-fi film and turned into a cult classic (with a catch theme song from Queen) will be given a facelift for an all-new adaptation on the big screen. Over the years, there have been a few attempts to rework Flash Gordon, and now another try is coming together with J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, the duo behind the script for Star Trek 3, developing the hopeful project that is currently striking a deal for studio home. More below! Payne and McKay are relatively unknown writers, but they've gotten work after writing an adaptation of Boilerplate for Bad Robot and also a stylistic take on the Biblical tale of Goliath. »

Tonight, during the MTV Movie Awards, Hollywood’s biggest studios took the opportunity to hype up audiences for some of the summer’s biggest releases. Over the course of the evening, we saw new TV spots for blockbusters like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Edge of Tomorrow, Transformers: Age of Extinction and many more.
Honestly, I can’t say that I’m terribly excited for this summer’s offerings, especially when you look at what 2015 has in store for us. If there is one film I’m eager to see though, it’s Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West. As demonstrated in the new TV spot released tonight, it just looks so damn funny. The director hit it out of the park a few years ago with Ted, and I have no doubt that he’ll see similar success with his follow-up.
In regards to the other stuff, »
