New Release Date Announced for The Mummy Reboot

5 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Yesterday we reported that The Mummy reboot was finally starting to emerge from its cinematic tomb with a new director, Alex Kurtzman, announced at the helm. Originally slated to come out in theaters on April 22nd, 2016, Universal Pictures has already revealed a new release date for the upcoming Mummy movie that will have fans waiting just a bit longer to see this monster in action.

Deadline reveals that The Mummy reboot will now hit cinemas on June 26th, 2016. Since the release has only been delayed by about two months, there shouldn’t be any major holdbacks in production.

The reason for the move comes from another big Universal property that filled in the abandoned April 22nd slot: The Huntsman, the prequel to 2012′s Snow White and the Huntsman that will be directed by Frank Darabont (showrunner on Season 1 of The Walking Dead, director of The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption »

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

Universal Pictures is shifting around pieces on its release calendar.

The studio will unveil “The Huntsman,” the sequel to 2013’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” on April 22, 2016, which will push its reboot of “The Mummy” back by two months.

The Mummy” will now rise from the dead on June 24, 2016. Both films have their dates to themselves, although “The Huntsman” will debut the week after “The Best Man Wedding,” while “The Mummy” will land between “Independence Day 2,” Steven Spielberg’s “The Bfg” and “Finding Dory.”

“The Huntsman” will bring back Chris Hemsworth, but will jettison Kristen Stewart. “The Mummy” will be directed by Alex Kurtzman, the director of “People Like Us” and the writer of “Star Trek.”

Alex Kurtzman To Direct The Mummy Reboot

8 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

Universal Pictures have kept their Mummy perfectly preserved for decades now, with not even an encounter with Brendan Fraser able to fully put it down. And he’s usually enough to kill any franchise dead. Now the classic movie monster is set to rise from its crypt once again thanks to writer/producer Alex Kurtzman – best known for his screenwriting work with former partner Robert Orci – who is now set to direct the film, too, making it his second time in the chair following underwhelming 2012 indie drama People Like Us. Which probably won’t have much in common with The Mummy.

Kurtzman is reportedly in final negotiations with Universal to helm the film he was already producing with Chris Morgan, part of an ongoing initiative to resurrect all of the classic Universal Monsters: not just toilet paper-wrapped Imhotep but also the Creature From The Black Lagoon, Dracula and Frankenstein’s Monster, »

Alex Kurtzman to Launch the Monster Cinematic Universe with 'Mummy'

11 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The band is going solo. Alex Kurtzman is breaking away from his frequent creative partner, Roberto Orci, to direct Universal’s reboot of The Mummy.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, this will be Universal’s first film in their new monster series, in which producers plan on developing a Marvel-like shared cinematic universe with the likes of Dracula, Frankenstein and more.

Mummy will unwrap into theaters on April 22, 2016, and will set the tone for future monster movies to build off of, similar to Iron Man’s role in 2008. Little is known about Mummy’s plot, but it is believed to be set in the present day, and will not feature any of the same characters from the previous franchise.

Kurtzman had already been producing the project with 47 Ronin writer Chris Morgan, but the studio was extremely impressed with his command of the material, and offered him the director’s chair. »

Alex Kurtzman to direct The Mummy reboot

22 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Mummy finally has its director - but where does that leave Sony's Venom movie?

It's no secret that Universal is rebooting The Mummy series, nor that it's tapped up Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan to oversee a 'classic monsters universe' for the studio. The Mummy is set to be the first entry in that new take on said universe, and Jon Spaihts has put a screenplay together.

The project has passed through a few directors thus far. Len Wiseman was originally attached to it, before Mama's Andy Muschietti signed up to make the film. Muschietti and Universal reportedly parted company on the film due to the former's desire to take the film a little darker, rather than family friendly.

Now, we learn that Alex Kurtzman is to replace him in the director's chair. This'll be his second directorial outing, following People Like Us, and he's also producing the film »

The Mummy reboot has been clawing at the walls of its cinematic tomb since 2012, when producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci signed a production deal with Universal Pictures. After going through two directors and collecting dust, the movie is finally finding its way into the light, as a new director for the film has been announced, one who is already deeply invested in the project.

According to THR, Universal has looked to Alex Kurtzman to helm The Mummy reboot, which is set for an April 22nd, 2016 release. Kurtzman is already a producer on the project and has been a major contributor along with fellow producer Chris Morgan in planning out an interconnected cinematic environment with Universal’s classic monsters. Kurtzman and his writing collaborator Roberto Orci have worked on the script penned by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus).

'The Mummy' Reboot Lands 'Venom' Director Alex Kurtzman

30 July 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Two weeks ago, Universal Pictures announced it is moving forward with plans to construct a massive, interconnected monster movie universe with writer-producers Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan. Today, we have word that Alex Kurtzman is in final talks to direct the first entry into this franchise, the Untitled Mummy Reboot.

Len Wiseman (Total Recall) was initially attached to direct before he bowed out, paving the way for Andres Muschietti (Mama) to come on board before he left in May. However, both of those filmmakers were on board before this inter-connected monster universe was hatched. The Mummy Reboot will be the first project launched within this cinematic universe, setting the tone for those that come after it.

While no plot details have been confirmed, insiders claim that the project is set in present day, with a whole new set of characters. The reboot is said to be more of an action-adventure with horror elements, »

Alex Kurtzman to Direct Universal’s ‘Mummy’ Reboot

30 July 2014 3:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alex Kurtzman is in final negotiations to direct “The Mummy” reboot for Universal.

Kurtzman and “Fast and Furious” scribe Chris Morgan were recently tapped to help develop a universe for Universal where the studio’s classic monster movie library is front and center.

The two will also produce the pic with Jon Spaihts penning the script.

Plot details are vague other than it will be set in present time, unlike the previous three installments starring Brendan Fraser, which had a period feel to them. It’s also known that none of the  characters from that set of films will appear in this one.

Universal’s executive vice president of production Jon Mone and director of development Jay Polidoro will oversee the project for Universal.

Kurtzman had previously directed the DreamWorks pic “People Like Us.” He is repped by CAA.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.

Dead Within Gets Us Distribution

25 June 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

If you were holed up in a cabin with your loved one during the apocalypse, what horrors would you find outside your long unopened door? That’s the question at the heart of writer/director Ben Wagner’s latest film, Dead Within, which Millennium Entertainment recently picked up.

A release date has not yet been set for this psychological horror film, but we’ll let Daily Dead readers know when one is determined. To get real results out of his actors, Ben Wagner filmed the movie in the tradition of The Blair Witch Project, placing stars Amy Cale Peterson and Dean Chekvala (both of whom helped write the script) in a real locked cabin wherein they had no idea what horror the filmmakers would throw at them. In addition to the film, a prequel comic illustrated by artist Alfonso Ruiz will soon be available, perhaps expanding on the apocalyptic events »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Bad Words

15 May 2014 3:51 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: July 8, 2014

Price: DVD $29.98, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $34.98

Studio: Universal Studios Home Entertainment

Jason Bateman (The Switch) plays a foul-mouthed spelling wonder in  omedy movie Bad Words.

Bateman’s Guy Trilby is on a mission and doesn’t care who is hurt. After finding a loophole in the rules of the national spelling bee The Golden Quill, Trilby competes despite being 30 years older than the other average contestant. Contest officials and parents are outraged.

But one contestant, 10-year-old Chaitanya (Rohan Chand, Lone Survivor) gives Trilby a run for his money and they start to influence each other, for better or worse.

Bad Words got decent reviews from critics, better from moviegoers, earning 64% approval from critics and 70% from moviegoers, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Still, turnout for the film in theaters was on the lower side for a Jason Bateman movie: Bad Words grossed only $7.7 million, compared to $134 million for »

‘Star Trek 3′: Roberto Orci is Set as Director

14 May 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have written for so many blockbuster franchises (Transformers, Star Trek) and big genre TV shows (Alias, Fringe) by this point, it was inevitable that the pair would eventually want to make the jump to directing some of these splashy tentpoles themselves. The dynamic duo is separating professionally, in order to better pursue such directing opportunities; Kurtzman is currently attached to helm the Spider-Man spinoff film Venom, while Orci is reported to have recently entered official talks for him to call the shots on the next Star Trek movie installment.

While Kurtzman has a feature-length film (People Like Us) and a couple TV episodes under his belt as director, Orci is ...

Roberto Orci wants to direct the next Star Trek film

22 April 2014 11:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 23 Apr 2014 - 07:27

With Alex Kurtzman set to direct Venom, Roberto Orci apparently has his eyes on succeeding Jj Abrams as Star Trek director...

News broke late yesterday that long-time writing partners Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are going their separate ways. The pair have been a creative partnership for some time, writing across projects such as Jj Abrams' Star Trek reboots, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Transformers, the Sleepy Hollow TV show and Cowboys & Aliens.

Towards the end of last year, it was revealed that Alex Kurtzman is the man that Sony wants to direct one of its Spider-Man spin-off movies, Venom. Kurtzman is also writing the script for the film, which will be his second feature directorial effort after People Like Us.

Whilst Kurtzman and Orci will continue to work together on their television projects, Variety reports that their split on feature films is amicable. »

Roberto Orci Wants To Direct Star Trek 3

22 April 2014 7:22 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Photo: Art StreiberAfter writing as a unit for more than a decade and turning into something of a production company powerhouse/hive mind, Star Trek scribes Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have decided to call it quits. No, snark fans, they’re not quitting the biz but merely focusing on separate film projects, which in Kurtzman’s case means negotiating to direct Amazing Spider-spin-off Venom and in Orci’s, lobbying to sit in the big chair for Star Trek 3.The directorial news is not that surprising. Kurtzman, after all, already has one credit under his belt with indie People Like Us and both have worked on more than enough huge movies to learn a thing or two. But while we can see Sony handing the lower-risk Venom on to a relative newcomer in the director’s chair, it might be a harder sell for Paramount to pull a Starfleet »
