New Garfield Movie Gets Chicken Little Director Mark Dindal

Everybody's favorite lasagna-loving cat is coming back to theaters, with an all new movie in the works. From Alcon Entertainment, a fully animated movie based on Garfield is moving forward with production, finding its director in Chicken Little's Mark Dindal. Alcon had previously bought the rights to Garfield from creator Jim Davis, who will be serving as an executive producer along with Amuse's Bridget McMeel. Despicable Me's John Cohen and Dolphin Tale 2's Stephen P. Wegner will also be producing with Alcon's own Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson. The screenplay was written by the team of Paul Kaplan and Mark Torgove.

Garfield has been around for forty years, first debuting in a comic strip back in 1978. The series followed an overweight and lazy cat named Garfield, along with his cartoonist owner Jon Arbuckle and Odie, a fellow pet dog. Currently, Garfield holds the world record

‘Garfield’ Movie Finds Director in ‘Chicken Little’s’ Mark Dindal

  • Variety
Alcon Entertainment is moving forward on its “Garfield” animated feature project with Mark Dindal on board to direct.

Dindal’s credits include “The Emperor’s New Groove” and “Chicken Little.” He’s directing from a screenplay by the writing team of Paul Kaplan and Mark Torgove. Pre-production is set to begin next month in Los Angeles.

Alcon bought the “Garfield” rights in 2016 from Jim Davis, the creator of the Garfield comic series and brand. Davis will be an executive producer. Alcon said Monday that its goal is to build a franchise of fully CG-animated Garfield feature films.

John Cohen (“Despicable Me”) and Steven P. Wegner (“Dolphin Tale 2″) brought the project to Alcon and will produce along with Alcon toppers Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson. Bridget McMeel from Amuse will executive produce with Davis.

The Top 14 Wildest Things That Have Happened on Ryan Murphy's 9-1-1

  • BuzzSugar
Any fan of Ryan Murphy knows that the man has a gift for creating buzzworthy TV shows. From Nip/Tuck to American Horror Story, Murphy has developed a score of shows that are so wildly different from one another, there's no way to guess where he's going next. One such project of his, that I personally feel is vastly underrated, is his Fox procedural drama 9-1-1, which follows the lives of Los Angeles first responders.

Now in its second season, 9-1-1 brings a lot to the table; it boasts a star-studded cast, has heartwarming stories about the family you're born with and the family you choose, and delivers lots of the soapy drama that we all know and love. It also features some of the wildest emergencies imaginable, some of which have actually happened. I'm talking rescuing folks from having their heads stuck in a microwave with cement,

Can Someone Please Check on Jennifer Love Hewitt Now That Halloween Is Over?
New life mission: Find someone who loves us the way Jennifer Love Hewitt loves fall and Halloween.

She is basic and proud. She is pumpkin spice and everything nice. She is a real-life Hallmark Channel Fall Harvest heroine come to life. And that is not shade, it's a compliment of the highest order and a deep appreciation for her commitment to fall and Halloween. Her first child's name?...

When his estranged wife reenters the picture, the drama’s newest recruit is forced to reconsider some of the decisions that ended their relationship — but that doesn’t necessarily mean a rekindling is in order.

Party of Five reboot sets its cast

Back in January it was reported that Freeform had granted a pilot order to an immigration-themed reboot of the 90s family drama Party of Five, and now Variety is reporting that the project has found its leads.

According to the trade, Brandon Larracuente (13 Reasons Why), Emily Tosta (Mayans Mc), Niko Guardado (The Goldbergs) and Elle Paris Legaspi (To My Family) have been cast as the Emilio, Lucia, Beto and Valentina Buendía, four siblings who struggle to survive as a family when their parents are deported to Mexico.

9-1-1 Season 2 Episode 6 Review: Dosed

Guys, I can never unsee that stiletto!

The unique calls on this show never get old and really set this show apart from other dramas. In this hour alone, we had an insect-eating contest, a shoe protruding from a someone's cheek, and a bodybuilder stuck in a bicep curl. 

And on top of all that, the firefighters were unknowingly drugged. Yes, 9-1-1 Season 2 Episode 6 truly had to be seen to be believed. 

The whole concept of a television crew following people around on the job isn't new, but it was an awesome excuse to hone in on the characters and see how they react to being put on display. 

For the most part, everyone relished the spotlight, except for Bobby.

Party of Five Reboot: Freeform Casts Leads of Immigration-Themed Drama

Party of Five Reboot: Freeform Casts Leads of Immigration-Themed Drama

A reimagining of the ’90s Fox drama — which made household names out of Matthew Fox, Scott Wolf, Neve Campbell, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Lacey Chabert — Freeform’s Party of Five has an immigration focus.

15 Hollywood Actors Who Had Epic Fails as Music Stars (Photos)

15 Hollywood Actors Who Had Epic Fails as Music Stars (Photos)
There are a few (lots of) Hollywood actors that tried venturing out into the musical world. Some (very few) made it work and others… Well, here’s a list of 15 that should’ve just not.

Lindsay Lohan

Lohan debuted her first album “Speak” in 2004 and it actually did pretty well commercially. Her music video for “Rumors” even got nominated for an MTV Video Music Award.

She wasn’t horrible, but she just wasn’t pop star good.

Eddie Murphy

Believe it or not, Eddie Murphy had a low-key music career. You probably know him best from his single “I’m a Believer” off Shrek… and that’s probably it.

He just released a reggae single with Snoop Dogg in 2o13, but like most of his stuff no one’s heard it.

Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp has been into music for a very long time, but it wasn’t until 2015 where

‘Dirty John’ Trailer: Connie Britton and Eric Bana Have a ‘Toxic’ – But Really Hot – Relationship (Video)
Baby, can’t you see? Connie Britton is falling! And that’s a really bad thing, because Eric Bana seems like a really bad dude in this newly-released trailer for Bravo’s upcoming limited series “Dirty John.”

In the almost two-minute teaser for the true-crime-podcast-turned-thriller-tv-show, Britton’s Debra Newell is smitten with Bana’s John Meehan. And, of course, we know this is all going to go to hell cause the trailer is set to a haunting cover of Britney Spears’ “Toxic.”

The Newport Beach, California, interior designer’s daughters (Julia Garner and Juno Temple) are nervous their mom is so deeply in love (maybe lust?) with this mysterious doctor who is prone to some random outbursts and creepy tendencies.

Sigourney Weaver movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Aliens,’ ‘Avatar,’ ‘Working Girl’
Sigourney Weaver celebrates her 69th birthday on October 8, 2018. The three-time Oscar nominee has proven herself a capable leading lady in a variety of genres, including science fiction, fantasy, comedy, horror, and drama. In honor of her birthday, let’s take a look back at 15 of her greatest films, ranked worst to best.

Weaver made her film debut with a walk-on role as Woody Allen‘s girlfriend in “Annie Hall” (1977). Her breakthrough came just two years later for Ridley Scott‘s landmark sci-fi thriller “Alien” (1979). As Ripley, the lone survivor aboard a spacecraft besieged by a snarling, ferocious extra-terrestrial, Weaver broke down barriers for female action stars and helped launch a franchise that led to three sequels: James Cameron‘s “Aliens” (1986), David Fincher‘s “Alien 3” (1992), and Jean-Pierre Jeunet‘s “Alien: Resurrection” (1997).

Aliens” brought Weaver her first Oscar nomination as Best Actress, a rarity for the genre. Not to be typecast, she

Why Jennifer Love Hewitt Left Hollywood--and Why She's Now Coming Back

Why Jennifer Love Hewitt Left Hollywood--and Why She's Now Coming Back
Don't call it a comeback, she's been here before. Jennifer Love Hewitt made her latest return to TV last night, with the second season premiere of 9-1-1 on Fox. Hewitt was brought in by Ryan Murphy to replace the void (and hair goals position) left by Connie Britton's exit after season one of the hit medical drama, with the mega-producer teasing the TV vet's big return in a major way. "We will be bringing in some new faces, including one you all know and love but haven't seen in a while, the incredible Jennifer Love Hewitt," Murphy told advertisers back at the Fox Upfront presentation in May, promoting Hewitt's first regular acting gig since Criminal Minds in 2015. ...

  • The Wrap
Updated 10:24 am Pt: Final ratings from Nielsen have “9-1-1” adjusting up to a 2.6 rating in the key demo and 9.8 million total viewers, up 44 percent in both measures compared to the Season 1 premiere in January.

9-1-1 Season 2 Episode 1 Review: Under Pressure

  • TVfanatic
Wow, this show never slows down for a minute, huh?

Fresh off an exhilarating freshman season, 9-1-1 Season 2 Episode 1 comes back guns blazing with a series of crazy emergencies that throw our favorites right into the fire. Well, not a literal fire but you know what I mean!

Grenades? Yes. Severed Limbs? Of course. A head cemented into a microwave? Obviously. Would it really be 9-1-1 without this level of disaster?

Within the first few minutes of the hour, there are a series of accidents that enlist the help of La's finest, and they really come through in the clutch. Most notable being the severed limb Buck fishes out of a pool, for a man who got a little to close to a manhole. 

Much like 9-1-1 Season 1, the series doesn't shy away from the gore or the behind-the-scenes horror that some shows don't have the time to explore.

‘9-1-1’ Review: Season 2 Builds on Its Outrageous Disasters, but is Still Struggling on the Human Side

  • Indiewire
[Note: The following review contains spoilers for “911” Season 2, Episode 1, “Under Pressure.”]

“911” is the kind of show that would feature a massive, city-crippling earthquake at the end of the first hour of its season premiere instead of its season finale. Teased to kick off Season 2, the latest escalation from the Fox drama is another example of the show committing to the broadcast niche it’s carved out for itself: a first-responder drama that lives comfortably and loudly at opposite poles of an end-of-the-world spectrum.

True to form, the series returned to the air with another episode telling life and death stories, living side by side with the relatively incremental changes for the people tasked with responding to the most bizarre Los Angeles horror stories. Watching the team mobilize and literally deflate a mechanic is an effective early example of how compact and efficient some of these “911” stories can sometimes be. This one also pulls double duty introducing the firehouse’s newest shirtless hunk,

9-1-1 Season Premiere Recap: Do You 'Love' the Show's New Additions?
With Sunday’s season premiere, 9-1-1 went from being a show about firefighters who happen to be hot… to being a show about firefighters who wear their hotness like a badge of honor.

The episode pit the men of the station against one another for a spot in a hot firefighters calendar (for charity!), cuing workout scenes and slow-mo sequences that put Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical” music video to shame. Buck was sure he had it in the bag, showing off his ludicrous physique in a series of gym selfies, until newcomer Eddie Diaz (actual nickname: Eight-Pack) arrived on the scene.

‘9-1-1’ Chief Talks Super-Sized ’70s Disaster Movie’-Style Premiere, Rescuing ‘Awful People’ in Season 2

“9-1-1” closed its second season premiere Sunday night by teasing the largest-scale emergency the Fox drama has tackled yet — and a realistic fear for anyone who has ever lived in Los Angeles: a 7.1 earthquake.

After spending an hour bringing us all up to speed with Bobby (Peter Krause), Athena (Angela Bassett), Buck (Oliver Stark), Hen (Aisha Hinds) and Howie (Kenneth Choi) and introducing new team member Eddie Diaz (Ryan Guzman) and Buck’s sister Maddie (Jennifer Love Hewitt), the first part of the two-night Season 2 debut closed with L.A. about to descend into chaos, thanks to the natural disaster.

And showrunner Tim Minear tells TheWrap tomorrow’s episode is just the crazy start to a two-part tale he compares to a feature-length film.
