Flashback: Bill and Ted Battle the Grim Reaper by Playing 'Battleship'

Flashback: Bill and Ted Battle the Grim Reaper by Playing 'Battleship'
The Bill & Ted fan community haven't had it easy over the past couple of decades. The only real content they've gotten to chew on since Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey left theaters in 1991 was the short-lived cartoon series Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures and a disastrous live-action Fox show that aired seven episodes in the summer of 1992 before being forever banished from the memory banks of every single person on the planet.

Making matters worse, series stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter pop up in the press every few months and

Ryan Reynolds Becomes a Screenwriter; Gets ‘Deadpool 2’ Writing Credit
Ryan Reynolds can now add screenwriter to his resume, as the actor has a writing credit on the upcoming film in which he’ll also star, “Deadpool 2.” The Fox Movies website lists Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Ryan Reynolds as the credited screenwriters. Although Reynolds was already listed as one of this film’s producers — along with the first “Deadpool” and upcoming projects “X-Force” and “Clue” — this is his first writing credit. Reynolds has been heavily involved in the development of the “Deadpool” film series so getting credited as a screenwriter shouldn’t come as a surprise. The synopsis for the...

Why Video Game Movies Suck

Tomb Raider has set out to do the near impossible: make a good video game movie. This shouldn’t be as mammoth a task as it first appears. After all, other kinds of media have been hits on the big screen for generations, with books and comics both receiving stunning film adaptations over the decades. Even board games can see success as a feature film, if 1985’s cult classic Clue is anything to go by.

Ryan Reynolds reunites with The Proposal producers for new rom-com

Deadline is reporting that Ryan Reynolds will reunite with Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman, producers of 2009’s The Proposal, for an as-yet-untitled new romantic comedy.

The film is being scripted by Allan Loeb (Collateral Beauty, The Space Between Us, The Switch), although plot details are being kept under wraps.

Lieberman and Hoberman’s Mandeville will produce the movie alongside Reynolds’ Maximum Effort, which is also working on an adaptation of the popular board game Clue, scripted by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool).

The Proposal saw Reynolds starring alongside Sandra Bullock, and despite mixed reviews, it was a solid hit at the box office with almost $320 million worldwide.

Reynolds will next be seen on the big screen this May, when he reprises the role of the Merc with a Mouth in the superhero sequel Deadpool 2. He is also currently shooting the live-action Pokemon movie Detective Pikachu, where he stars as the title character.

The Flash's Kim Engelbrecht Answers Burning Qs About the DeVoes, Their Sex Life, Marlize's Hair and More

We think The Thinker might be having unforeseen marital problems.

As The CW’s The Flash resumes Season 4 this Tuesday at 8/7c, Barry’s latest Big Bad has adopted yet another form, that of “unlucky” bus meta Becky Sharpe. But in the course of doing so, Clifford DeVoe got a bit kill-y, needlessly offing the Iron Heights warden. That raised the hackles of his wife and partner Marlize, to the point that DeVoe is now dosing his better half with Weeper tears.

TVLine invited South African actress Kim Engelbrecht to survey the state of the DeVoes’ union, weigh in on

RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Recap: This Means War(hol)

RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Recap: This Means War(hol)
At this point, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars is becoming a lot like the movie Clue: If you start talking smack about other contestants, there’s a good chance you’ll be the next one who gets shot. Or at least end up in the bottom two.

That’s why I wasn’t surprised when Aja — who questioned BeBe Zahara Benet’s future in the competition early in the episode — ended up on the chopping block this week, nor was I surprised to see her standing next to Shangela. (For all her many talents, sewing is not one of them.

John Morris, ‘Blazing Saddles’ and ‘Young Frankenstein’ Composer, Dies at 91

John Morris, ‘Blazing Saddles’ and ‘Young Frankenstein’ Composer, Dies at 91
John Morris, Oscar-nominated, Emmy-winning composer for many of the classic Mel Brooks comedies including “Blazing Saddles” and “Young Frankenstein,” died Thursday at his home in Red Hook, N.Y. He was 91.

Morris was Oscar-nominated for co-writing, with Brooks, the title song for “Blazing Saddles” – a sendup of classic movie cowboy tunes sung by Frankie Laine for the opening of Brooks’ 1974 film. Morris was nominated again in 1980 for his dramatic score for the Brooks-produced “The Elephant Man.”

Morris served as Brooks’ composer beginning with “The Producers” in 1967; he wrote the original arrangement for Brooks’ famous “Springtime for Hitler” song, and composed the rest of the underscore.

Morris’ most famous score is undoubtedly “Young Frankenstein,” for which he composed a memorable violin theme that plays a key role in the story. Under the title “Transylvanian Lullaby,” it has even been performed by top classical artists from violinist Gil Shaham to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Ryan Reynolds to produce new Clue movie

Back in 2016 it was announced that 20th Century Fox had optioned the rights to the Clue board game (that’s Cluedo to folks in the UK) with plans to develop a new movie adaptation, and now comes word from The Wrap that Ryan Reynolds has come on board as a producer through his production company Maximum Effort.

Reynolds’ Maximum Effort will produce the feature film adaptation alongside Hasbro’s own Allpsark Pictures, while Deadpool scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are said to be in talks to come on board and pen the script.

Clue was previously adapted for the big screen with the cult 1985 comedy which featured a cast that included Tim Curry, Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean, Madeline Kahn, Martin Mull, Lesley Ann Warren and Eileen Brennan, and famously featured three alternate endings, with theaters receiving different ones.

Ryan Reynolds to Star in ‘Clue’ Film at Fox: Writers of ‘Deadpool’ Attached

Clue is coming back to the big screen and Ryan Reynolds has been elected to star in it. He’ll also be joined by the writers of Deadpool, so at least you know he should have someone that’s used to giving him great lines and can think in the same manner that he can so expertly deliver. Aside from that the aspect of this that might be most troubling is that Hollywood is seeing fit to remake older movies in a way that seems to make people think that they’re kind of running out of ideas.

Ryan Reynolds is Making a New Clue Film with The Writers of Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds just inked a three-year first look deal with his studio Maximum Effort and Fox, and their first film is a live-action remake of Clue. Variety doesn't have a ton of details about the film at this time, but it's being said that Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are in talks to write the new film. 

Reynolds isn't just going to produce this film, however, he's going to star! The film is looking to profit off the actor's popularity, and as such would need him in it for that to happen. Personally, I think Reynolds would make a perfect Professor Plum, but that's just me.

Are you excited for this film, or a little pissed that they're making another live-action one?

Ryan Reynolds developing a reboot of Clue

David Crow Jan 23, 2018

Get ready to figure out who killed Mr. Boddy again, because Ryan Reynolds is starring in and producing a Clue reboot at Fox.

Fans better start speculating whether Ryan Reynolds is more of a Mr. Green or Col. Mustard type, because the Life star is going to both lead and produce a Clue reboot. Indeed, revisiting the still-warm corpse of Mr. Boddy is just one piece of a new three-year deal between Reynolds and 20th Century Fox.

The news comes via Deadline, which reported that Reynolds’ Maximum Effort production company has inked a three-year first-look deal with the studio that produced his game-changing Deadpool film. The result of this deal is that any projects developed by Reynolds’ label - for him to produce and/or star in - will be given a first-look opportunity to produce and distribute by Fox, which is still chugging along just fine

Ryan Reynolds Signs First-Look Deal at Fox With ‘Clue’ Movie in the Works

Ryan Reynolds Signs First-Look Deal at Fox With ‘Clue’ Movie in the Works
Ryan Reynolds is developing a feature film based on the board game “Clue” as part of a three-year first-look deal he has signed with Fox.

Reynolds’ Maximum Effort will develop “Clue” as a possible starring vehicle for the actor. Allspark Pictures, the film division of Hasbro, will also produce. The “Deadpool” writing team of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick will pen the script.

The game, first developed in 1949, is a contest to determine who of six suspects murdered the game’s victim, where the crime took place, and which weapon was used. Each player assumes the role of one of the six suspects, and attempts to deduce. Paramount released a film version of “Clue” as a mystery-comedy in 1985 with Jonathan Lynn directing and Eileen Brennan, Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean, Martin Mull, and Lesley Ann Warren starring.

Reynolds was a producer on and starred in Fox’s “Deadpool,” which grossed
