Jerry Bruckheimer Finalizes Producing Deal with Paramount

6 December 2013 7:53 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jerry Bruckheimer is going back to Paramount Pictures after the two side reached a three-year, first-look agreement for theatrical films that will begin in April 2014.

The 70-year-old veteran producer has been looking to secure a new home for his movie releases since October, when Disney opted not to renew his deal beyond this year.

Jerry Bruckheimer is one of the most creative and prolific producers in motion picture history,” said Paramount Pictures Chairman and CEO Brad Grey. “His signature style has attracted huge global audiences and we are thrilled to have him back in the Paramount family.”

“It is great to be back at Paramount,” Bruckheimer said. “I look forward to working with Brad Grey and his entire team.”

Bruckheimer has a handful of films in development at Paramount, including sequels to “Beverly Hills Cop” and “Top Gun,” the latter of which Skydance is also attached to finance and produce. »

The '10 Things I Hate About You' Spinoff Is Back on Course

7 November 2013 10:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's been in the works for a while now, but it looks like the "10 Things I Hate About You" spinoff is finally getting off the ground.

The movie, called "10 Things I Hate About Life," isn't a sequel so much as a continuation of the beloved teen flick, described as "advanc[ing] situations from the original film." In its current iteration, it stars Evan Rachel Wood and Thomas McDonell ("Fun Size," ABC series "Suburgatory") as two people who meet just as they're about to commit suicide, and end up falling in love.

Production had started a year ago before shooting was shut down, but now filming is expected to begin again in December. A previous version of the movie had "Captain America" star Hayley Atwell attached in Wood's role.

"10 Things I Hate About Life" will be helmed by "10 Things I Hate About You"'s director, Gil Junger. Here's hoping Junger finds a »

Johnny Knoxville & Chelsea Handler Bond Over "Nugget" Costar Jackson Nicoll on Chelsea Lately

25 October 2013 4:33 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jackson Nicoll made quite an impression on Chelsea Handler when they costarred in the 2012 movie Fun Size. Johnny Knoxville? Not so much. The latter appeared on the Thursday, Oct. 24, episode of Chelsea Lately, where he and Handler swapped stories about working with the 9-year-old scene-stealer. After Handler said she worked with the "nugget" on a movie that "bombed" last Halloween, Knoxville laughed and told the talk show host, "We were in it together." "Oh, you were in it, too?" Handler asked, laughing. The comedienne went on to call Nicoll "super annoying" and "a dick," but Knoxville said he was so impressed with the young star's talent that he decided to cast »

'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa' review: Johnny Knoxville dons old-age makeup in fitfully funny, semi-scripted film

24 October 2013 5:00 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Strip the danger out of "Borat" and the injuries out of "Jackass" and you've got a bead on "Bad Grandpa," a fitfully funny, semi-scripted "Jackass" outing built around elaborately staged pranks played on the unsuspecting.

Johnny Knoxville dons old-age makeup and becomes Irving Zisman, whom we meet at his wife's doctor's office.

"I thought she'd Never die." 

Innocent bystanders give him a look.

At the funeral, a hired black church choir freaks out -- a bit -- at Irving's tasteless eulogy, and the mayhem with his crackhead daughter (Georgina Cates) that dumps the casket over in front of everybody. 

A running gag in the movie: black people's nervousness around a corpse. Another running gag: Irving's racially tinged wisecracks to Hispanic store clerks, black cashiers and strip club fans and a fetching Asian woman his 8-year-old "grandson" (Jackson Nicoll) befriends somewhere around Nashville.

The crackhead daughter's dumped the kid on Grandpa. »

22 October 2013 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Johnny Knoxville makes his anticipated return to the big screen this weekend, bringing us what promises to be another hilarious slice of Jackass in feature-length form with Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.

With the comedy hitting cinemas in the UK tomorrow, and the Us at the end of the week, a great new red-band trailer has landed over on Break, giving a highly unsuitable new look at the movie.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa Review

21 October 2013 3:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Jackass front man Johnny Knoxville resurrects Oap character Irving Zisman for his very own movie, Bad Grandpa. We first saw the 90-year-old’s high jinx back on MTV in 2001. He seems to be doing well and aging backwards as he’s now 86 years old in this – must be the fresh cheek of youth rubbing off on him from grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll) who comes along for the ride. Fear not, this is Jackass with the crude knob turned down a touch but the odd toilet humour gag and latex prosthetics body parts are on show.

Zisman has just lost his wife, had his eight-year-old grandson he barely knows dumped on him by his junkie daughter Kimmy (Georgina Cates) who scarpers at Mum’s (co-writer Spike Jonze in drag) funeral to avoid doing jail-time, and is then forced to make the trip across America to hand his grandson over to his waster father he detests. »

'Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa' review: Jackass but not as we know it

20 October 2013 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jeff Tremaine; Screenwriters: Jeff Tremaine, Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze; Starring: Johnny Knoxville, Jackson Nicoll, Spike Jonze; Running time: 92 mins; Certificate: 15

The Jackass team depart from their stunt-driven slapstick formula to present latest film Bad Grandpa. Johnny Knoxville is still putting his body on the line in the name of comedy, but it's a tad more restrained here as he's in the guise of 86-year-old Irving Zisman, a character who first appeared on the Jackass TV show back in 2001.

This is a comedy in the mould of Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat and The Dictator, with writers Jeff Tremaine (who also directs), Spike Jonze and Knoxville crafting a road trip narrative to connect a series of hidden camera gags played on the unsuspecting public. Joining Irving on the anarchic trans-America trip is his 8-year-old grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll), who needs to be reunited with his estranged father after his addict mother is given jail time. »

Johnny Knoxville gets Trollied in New Poster for Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

12 September 2013 8:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Johnny Knoxville is set to return to the big screen next month, this time reprising his role as Irving Zisman in Jackass for the character’s feature-length debut, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.

Paramount took us by surprise earlier in the year when they announced that the previously-rumoured movie would be taking Paranormal Activity 5’s October release date. And things instantly started to look good when the first trailer hit last month.

More recently, the studio released the first poster. And now they’ve released a new UK poster, via Yahoo Movies, which sees Knoxville (and please, forgive the pun) getting trollied, in more than one sense.

First Poster for Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

27 August 2013 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

One of the biggest surprises of the year so far has been Paramount’s announcement that they’d be switching out Paranormal Activity 5 on their calendar for the previously-unannounced Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.

The movie had been rumoured in the past, but nobody had known that the film had already been shot, and was already prepping for its release.

A few weeks back, that announcement was followed by a hilarious first trailer. And now the studio have released the first poster, with Johnny Knoxville front and centre as the eponymous Bad Grandpa, and Jackson Nicoll (Fun Size) being carried by his pants alongside him.

Hilarious First Trailer and Images for Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

1 August 2013 1:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

A few weeks back, Paramount surprised everyone by announcing that Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa would be arriving in cinemas this October.

The film, which had been rumoured but previously unconfirmed, took the studio’s release slot for Paranormal Activity 5, and all signs suggest it’s going to be a huge winner for them, as an altogether different kind of low-budget, potentially high-reward movie.

With less than three months to go before it hits cinemas, the first trailer and images from the movie surfaced last night, giving us a hilarious first look at the upcoming comedy.

‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa’ Trailer: Behold The 2013 Best Picture Winner

31 July 2013 5:22 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Truly, what this world needed was a feature film based entirely around Johnny Knoxville wearing old man makeup. Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa offers just that- Knoxville cracking wise and debasing himself horrifically in front of total strangers, this time with the help of Jackson Nicoll (best known as the kid from Fun Size). Prepare to cringe, then watch after the break. This is now the fourth Jackass film to be released theatrically, so by now everyone should know exactly what to expect and whether they’re a part of Bad Grandpa‘s target audience. Still, this latest outing has one trick up its sleeve- narrative coherence. Unlike previous films, which existed solely as showcases for various unspeakable acts, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa will weave a story in between its various pranks. Doing so does add a small sense of newness to the film; even so, it’s still just a collection of farts and pratfalls, now »

Watch: Outrageous First Trailer For 'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa'

31 July 2013 1:13 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While the fall season promises movies of substance, value and perhaps Oscar consideration, if you need something outrageous, dumb, juvenile and also kind of hilarious, the dudes of "Jackass" are coming. Suddenly dropped onto the calendar in the last couple of weeks, the first trailer for "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" has arrived and it's just as wrong as you might expect. Utilizing somewhat of a loose narrative this time around, it finds Johnny Knoxville's Grandpa going on a roadtrip with charming "Fun Size" actor Jackson Nicoll, which is basically an excuse for them to get into all kinds of mayhem. And borrowing the "Borat" formula, the pair interact with real-life folks, bringing havoc to weddings, funerals, promotional penguins and beauty pageants. "We both had reservations only because we had never fleshed the character out and didn't know if it could sustain for a movie,"  director Jeff Tremaine told USA Today. »

31 July 2013 10:09 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Paramount Pictures made a bit of a surprise announcement a few weeks ago when we learned that the heretofore rumored film Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa had not only been filmed already, but was slated for release in theaters this coming October.  Now the first images and details from the pic have landed online, giving us a clearer idea of what the Jackass spinoff entails.  Johnny Knoxville reprises his 85-year-old Irving Zisman character in the film, which blends Jackass-style prank footage involving the unsuspecting public with a narrative arc (not unlike Borat).  Knoxville is joined onscreen by his Fun Size co-star Jackson Nicoll, who plays Zisman’s 8-year-old grandson Billy.  Jackass staple Jeff Tremaine directed the film and co-wrote the script with Knoxville and Spike Jonze. Hit the jump to check out the first images, and click here to watch the trailer.  Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa opens on October 25th. »

‘Star Trek,’ ‘World War Z’ Pivotal to Paramount’s Impact on Viacom Financials

14 June 2013 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While Paramount Pictures has argued that its austere slate churns out profitable films at a price, the studio’s operating income has been in decline, putting even more pressure on big summer bets like “World War Z” to perform.

While most of Paramount’s rivals also reserve their biggest theatrical releases for the next few months, they also roll out more titles throughout the year, which somewhat mitigates the fortunes of a single season. But under topper Brad Grey, Par has cut its slate and reduced overhead, choosing to bet on big, sexy pics like “World War Z” and “Star Trek Into Darkness” that will put the onus on the studio’s summer performance.

But “Star Trek” has been good news for Par, netting $181 million over its first three weeks at the domestic box office. Par also kicked off summer with a third pic, “Pain & Gain,” which did a respectable $50 million in the U. »
