Watch: First Trailer for ‘If I Stay’ Starring Chloe Grace Moretz

20 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you’re still trying to recover from the emotional “Fault in Our Stars” trailer, a warning: Here comes another tearjerker.

The first trailer for “If I Stay,” starring Chloe Grace Moretz and based on the 2009 Gayle Forman bestseller, has debuted. The story follows Grace Moretz’s Mia character, a young cellist with big dreams who is on her way to Juilliard, who also has a loving family and an adoring guitarist boyfriend played by Jamie Blackley.

Mia’s biggest problem seems to be the rift between her personal and professional future until a devastating car accident kills both of her parents and leaves her in a coma in a sort of limbo state. In an out-of-body experience, she realizes she has to choose between living and fighting through the tragedy, or passing on.

The role is quite a shift for Grace Moretz, whose recent high-profile parts include playing a »

Sharon Stone Joins ‘American Ultra’

16 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hollywood heavyweight Sharon Stone has joined the cast of action comedy American Ultra.

Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) stars as Mike, a hapless, lazy stoner, happy with his boring life with girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart – Twilight). However, unknown to Mike and everyone around him he’s actually a secret agent. When his past flashes before his eyes the realities of the responsibility of his power surface, especially when he’s called in to support a deadly government operation. Co-starring Topher Grace (That ’70s Show), John Leguizamo (Kick-ass 2), Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Bill Pullman (Independence Day) and Walton Goggins (Django Unchained), Stone joins the cast as Victoria Lasseter.

With Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) directing and Max Landis (Chronicle) behind the script this could go either way – brilliantly witty and action-packed…or a little lacklustre. We’ll have to wait and see.

American Ultra is already in production. It currently has »

'Kick-Ass' director Matthew Vaughn bringing Mark Miller's 'Superior' to the big screen

15 April 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Mark Millar's creator-owned work has a long history with Hollywood, with "Wanted," "Kick-Ass," "Kick-Ass 2," "The Secret Service" and more all getting a silver screen presence. Thus, it should come as little surprise that another one of his creator-owned books will see a big screen debut. According to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox has picked up the film rights for Millar and Leinil Yu's "Superior" miniseries with Matthew Vaughn attached to produce. Vaughn has a long history with Millar's Hollywood adaptations, dating back to his time helming "Kick-Ass." He is also currently directing "The Secret Service" film adaptation.   "This project actually means an awful lot to me. It's something Leinil and I really loved doing and, after years of wanting to work together, gave us our chance to collaborate," Millar said via the Millarworld Forums. "Matthew's producing, which is great news, and the kind of names »

Comics writer Mark Millar is no stranger to having his material adapted for the big screen, and yet another one of his creations has now been pegged for the feature film treatment.  20th Century Fox has acquired the film rights to Millar’s 2010 limited series Superior, which revolves around a young boy stricken with multiple sclerosis who is granted one wish by an alien monkey: to become a Superman-like superhero named Superior.  Problems arise when the boy learns that the monkey is no alien at all, but is instead a demon who demands the boy’s soul in return for his transformation, lest his wish be undone and he return to his original form. Hit the jump for more on the potential Superior movie, which has a familiar face onboard as producer. News of the rights acquisition comes courtesy of Heat Vision, which reports that Matthew Vaughn will produce the Superior movie. »

Kick-ass 2 Director to Rewrite Masters Of The Universe

11 April 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Fan art by nebezial

Sony’s Masters of the Universe remake is getting a rewrite. Jeff Wadlow, writer and director of Kick-Ass 2, has been brought on board to do a rewrite on the script based on the ‘80s animated series, which was awesome. Kick-Ass 2 was not so awesome, so I’m not sure how to take this news.  

I used to watch the Dolph Lundgren Masters of the Universe every year on Christmas Eve, but it’s been so long that all I remember is Skeletor falling at the end of the final battle. (I guess that was a spoiler. Sorry.) The animated series is more engrained in my memory, and I spent a lot of time playing He-Man and She-Ra when I was a kid. In other words, don’t eff up my childhood memories, Wadlow.

The most recent draft of the script was written by Terry Rossio, »

Jeff Wadlow Drafting He-Man in ‘Masters Of The Universe’

10 April 2014 9:18 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Jeff Wadlow, coming off directing Kick-Ass 2 and writing an X-Force movie for 20th Century Fox is now taking up the chance to go to Eternia for Sony and work on the script for Masters of the Universe.

Previously, Jon Chu was attached to direct a Terry Rossio (The Lone Ranger) script, but Chu is very publicly tied up in another 80s toy cartoon adaptation Jem and the Holograms for Hasbro. This being a Mattel cartoon, well…

According to The Wrap, if the script is good, the directing gig could be his to, then he’ll get to play with He-Man and Skeltor in Castle Grayskull.

Prince Adam. I Have The Power! Seo out.

Jeff Wadlow Re-Writing Masters Of The Universe

10 April 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Masters Of The Universe is like a projectile rattling around the pinball table of development, careening from director to writer and back again but never quite settling. It’s off in a different direction again now, with Kick-Ass 2 writer/director Jeff Wadlow taking a crack at the script.The film, which will draw from Mattel’s popular 1980s toy line and the cartoons the company cooked up to help sell it, will present some take on the story of the heroic Prince Adam, who becomes the even more heroic He-Man via his magic sword and the power of Greyskull. He has to protect Eternia and its people from the singularly inept evil of Skeletor, who despite his skull face, also looks like he’s spent time at the gym with The Rock.Sony has been attempting to get this project on its feet since 2009, and thereby to wipe our memories clear of the 1987 film. »

Masters Of The Universe Reboot To Get A Rewrite From The Director Of Kick-Ass 2

10 April 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Back in the 1980s, Mattel's Masters of the Universe inspired countless hours of playtime for children. And Columbia Pictures has been working hard to spin this dusty franchise into a fresh feature to appeal to a new generation of fans. Their latest efforts to resurrect Masters of the Universe involves wrangling the writer-director of Kick-Ass 2. THR says that the studio has officially hired Jeff Wadlow to rewrite the screenplay for Masters of the Universe, a reboot inspired by the popular line of action figures that featured the likes of He-Man, Skeletor and She-ra, who were also featured in children's cartoon shows. Aside from Kick-Ass 2, Wadlow is known for co-writing and directing the devilishly entertaining horror-thriller Cry_Wolf. This might suggest that Columbia is angling for a more mature take on Masters of the Universe. That said, I doubt it would be anything beyond PG-13, because otherwise they'd be »

10 April 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Jon M. Chu dropped out of directing Masters of the Universe back in October, Universal Pictures has been looking for the right filmmaker to take his place, with a number of directors reportedly in contention. Today, we have word that Jeff Wadlow, who wrote and directed Kick-Ass 2, has signed on to rewrite the script and possibly direct.

The filmmaker was mentioned in February as one of the many contenders for this coveted job, including Mike Cahill (Another Earth), Harald Zwart (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) and Chris McKay, who served as the editor of The Lego Movie but has never directed a feature before.

Jeff Wadlow's deal is only to write the script at this time, he could still end up directing the feature. While many are wondering who will direct Masters of the Universe, sources claim that the story is still far from ready, »

Kick-ass 2 Writer/Director Jeff Wadlow to Rewrite Masters Of The Universe

10 April 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Masters of the Universe movie still doesn’t have a director, but it does have a new writer.  Sony has been developing a reboot of the Mattel adaptation for a few years now, with G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu previously attached to take the helm.  Chu subsequently departed the project later last year as Pirates of the Caribbean co-writer Terry Rossio came aboard to rewrite the screenplay, but apparently the project still has a significant amount of development left to go, as Kick-Ass 2 writer/director Jeff Wadlow has now signed on to do another rewrite of the script. Hit the jump for more, including the possibility of Wadlow taking the helm. Per THR, Wadlow does not have a deal to direct Masters of the Universe at this time, but it remains a possibility down the road.  For now, he’ll focus on shaping the screenplay with »

‘Kick-Ass 2′ Director to Rewrite (and Maybe Direct) ‘Masters of the Universe’

10 April 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Internet may still be buzzing from its first look at the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot hitting theaters this year, but the heroes on a half-shell are far from the only 1980s characters plotting a live-action comeback. Case in point, development on the long-rumored Masters of the Universe reboot continues.

For a while, it looked like the film was inching (ever so slowly) towards production, with director Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) leading the project. However, fans hoping that his version of the film – which was said to avoid a campy approach to the material – would see the light of day were disappointed when ...

Jeff Wadlow heading to Eternia for Masters of the Universe

10 April 2014 7:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Schmoes Know, Kick-Ass 2 writer-director Jeff Wadlow has taken on directing duties on Sony’s long-gestating live-action Masters of the Universe reboot, filling the space in the director’s chair vacated by Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation). Wadlow has recently penned the script for 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spin-off X-Force, and should this He-Man rumour prove true, it would seem that Fox will need to find another director to bring Cable, Deadpool and company to the screen.

Sony has been developing Masters since 2009, and in 2010 the studio hired Mike Finch and Alex Litvak to draft a script, which was entitled Greyskull. The script has subsequently been rewritten by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2) and Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl), while the likes of Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), Rian Johnson (Looper), Phil Lord & Chris Miller (The Lego Movie), Kirk DeMicco »
