14 July 2017 7:51 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sony Pictures continues developing writer/director Shane Black's take on pulp magazine hero "Doc Savage" for producer Neil Moritz and Columbia Pictures, while Black is currently editing "The Predator":

"...'Doc Savage' is proceeding on pace," said Black. "...as 'Iron Man' wound down I sort of reconnected with Sony who have been gracious to say, 'We’ll wait a year and sit on these rights until you’re finished with this other picture that we don’t control.'

Originally published in pulp magazines during the 1930's, 'Doc Savage' was created by publisher Henry W. Ralston and editor John L. Nanovic at Street and Smith Publications...

...with additional material contributed by the series' main writer, Lester Dent.

The character spun-off into radio, film and comic books, then reprinted for modern-day audiences in a series of Bantam paperback books (1964) with covers illustrated by James Bama. »

New York Legislators Approve Groundbreaking TV Diversity Tax Credit

22 June 2017 1:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

New York’s state Assembly and Senate have passed a bill backed by the DGA and WGA East that would create a tax incentive program for TV shows that hire women and people of color in top writing and directing positions.

The bill will now head to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to sign.

The next big hurdle will be getting $5 million set aside in the state’s budget to fund the credit.

13 May 2017 1:11 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's been nearly a year since Christina and Tarek El Moussa's explosive fight that resulted in the two splitting up, but it appears the Flip or Flop stars are not completely over it.

On Thursday, Tarek posted a photo to his Instagram story of himself posing in front of a sign at Bj's Cabana Bar in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. The sign read, "No guns, weapons of any type." Tarek added text to the snap, writing "or helicopters," tagging his estranged wife and topping it off with a middle finger emoji.

1 May 2017 2:19 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here for another round of "Beauty vs Beast" - today is the 86th anniversary of the grand opening of the Empire State Building, aka the most famous building in the world. And so in its honor we're finally tackling the movie that not only birthed its legend but also gave this series its name...

"It was beauty killed the beast."

The Empire State Building was opened on May 1st 1931. President Hoover pushed a button in the White House in DC and the lights to the tower in NYC flicked on for the first time. Just under two years later the movie King Kong would be released (director Merian Cooper supposedly came up with the idea of the plane battle at its top), immediately branding the iconic skyscraper and its most famous big monkey occupant - and his little blonde friend (Fay Wray) - onto every human brain, »
