Bella Thorne to Star in Sci-Fi Horror Flick Friendship Game

Bella Thorne has been hired to star in the upcoming Scooter Corkle-directed sci-fi horror flick, Friendship Game. The script comes from Damien Ober, co-writer of Netflix’s amazing original series The Oa. Variety reports Friendship Game “follows a group of teens in a small town as they come across a strange object that tests their loyalties to each other with increasingly destructive consequences the deeper into the game they go.”

This could go either way. Corkle is a pretty new director, the movie description is still pretty vague, and Bella Thorne is hit or miss for me. She was cute in Blended, but not much else. But The Oa is one of my favorite shows ever, so hopefully the story turns out to be an interesting one.

Does this sound like an interesting story to you?

Drew Barrymore Says She's Dying to Make Another Movie with Adam Sandler: 'We Have More to Go'
Drew Barrymore wants Adam Sandler to be by her side on the big screen forever!

On Thursday, the Santa Clarita Diet actress, 44, revealed that of all the people that she has co-starred in films and television shows with, there’s one that stands out among the rest — and whom she never wants her time with to end.

“Adam Sandler, obviously, just because I want to make movies with him forever,” she told People exclusively at the Netflix show’s season three premiere.

The pair have already co-starred as love interests in three movies together — The Wedding Singer (1998), 50 First Dates

American Film Market Opens Amid Massive Uncertainty

  • Variety
Amid massive uncertainty for the future of movies, the American Film Market opens its 39th edition Wednesday at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel.

While the Southern California weather will certainly deliver sunshine, forecasts for the independent sector for both buyers and sellers are unpredictable, as factors such as the collapse of Donald Tang’s Global Road Entertainment; the retrenching of Megan Ellison’s Annapurna; questions surrounding traditional distribution through theaters as streaming services like Netflix and Amazon gain increasing traction; and other concerns impact the indie film biz.

Still, it’s not all doom and gloom, given that the domestic box office has rebounded smartly from 2017 with year-to-year grosses up 10%. More than 70 companies from 28 countries will be attending Afm for the first time as buyers — nine from China; four from both Italy and South Korea; three each from Canada, Germany, Spain, Taiwan and Vietnam; and two apiece from Hong Kong,

Avengers 4 Just Added A New Cast Member In A Mystery Role

Now this is interesting.

The Wrap’s reporting that Katherine Langford has joined the cast of Avengers 4. Given that the upcoming film will be the culmination of over ten years of McU stories and looks like it’s set to wrap up the arcs of both Steve Rogers/Captain America and Tony Stark/Iron Man, it’s a pretty strange place to be adding someone new to the roster. This is bound to kick off a ton of speculation on who she’s going to be playing, too, so… well, let’s get to speculating!

Given that we’ve heard constant rumors that there’ll be a significant time jump in Avengers 4, I’m thinking she’ll be portraying an adult version of a character we currently know as a child. As far as I can see, that leaves just two options.

The first is that she’ll be playing the adult Cassandra Lang,

Ride Trailer Locks Bella Thorne in an Uber from Hell

  • MovieWeb
Just when you thought it was safe to get back in an Uber. Along comes Ride, which will send chills down anyone's spine who has called up a car late at night, trying to get home. Today, we have the first trailer and poster for Ride, which looks down right terrifying.

Star Bella Thorne shared this first look at the intense thriller on her personal Instagram page. The movie is hitting theaters on October 5, just in time for the Halloween season, in case you're not into slashers, ghouls, demons, and demi-Gods. Ride offers up some authentic scares that are all a little too real. Joining the actress on screen are Jessie Usher, Will Brill, Hailee Lautenbach, Sara Lindsey and Byron L. Hopkins.

Ride sets out to give ride sharing services a bad name. Perhaps one that is rightfully deserved in some circumstances, but more times than not it's the poor driver that is getting abused.

Drew Barrymore Says Adam Sandler Is More Talented Than Jake Gyllenhaal: ‘I Don’t Care If He Hates Me’ — Watch

Drew Barrymore Says Adam Sandler Is More Talented Than Jake Gyllenhaal: ‘I Don’t Care If He Hates Me’ — Watch
There’s at least one person who considers Adam Sandler a better actor than Jake Gyllenhaal: Drew Barrymore, who’s in the unique position of having worked with them both. The actress appeared on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” last night and was forced to partake in its most dreaded segment: Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts, a spin on truth-or-dare in which guests are forced to either answer revealing questions or eat something disgusting.

Barrymore had to choose between ranking the respective talents of Sandler, Gyllenhaal, and Hugh Grant or eating a turkey testicle; she opted for the former, and listed them as such: 1) Sandler, 2) Grant, 3) Gyllenhaal. When it comes to these challenges, there really is no accounting for taste. Barrymore appeared alongside Gyllenhaal in “Donnie Darko,” starred opposite Grant in “Music and Lyrics,” and collaborated with Sandler on “The Wedding Singer,” “50 First Dates,

Drew Barrymore and Jamie Babbit Team Up for Rom-Com “The Stand In”

Barrymore in “Blended”: Warner Bros.

Drew Barrymore currently stars as a flesh-eating zombie in “Santa Clarita Diet,” but the Golden Globe winner is getting back into the rom-com game. A press release has announced that she’ll star in and produce “The Stand-In.” “But I’m a Cheerleader” helmer Jamie Babbit is attached to direct.

The pic sees Barrymore playing dual roles. The story centers on Candy, a has-been movie star who gets caught for tax evasion. She hires her stand-in, Paula, to do community service in her place. The pair develop a dysfunctional, co-dependent relationship as Candy “begins to use Paula as a stand-in in all parts of her life to escape from the stressful demands of fame. Eventually Paula starts to take over Candy’s identity, career, and boyfriend, finally kicking Candy out of her own house,” the film’s official synopsis details. “Candy is forced to

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Jessica Lowe

With the debut of its second season, Wrecked has captured the attention of thousands of fans. While its writing and plot are hilarious and engaging, a great deal of the show’s success can be attributed to its cast. Stars like Jessica Lowe, who portrays Florence, have helped make the show must-see summer television. Lowe is perhaps best known for Wrecked and her feature film debut Blended. However, she actually has a long and decorated career as a comedian. As she is just now emerging to mainstream viewers as a popular actor, many fans may know little about her background. Here

Adam Sandler’s Latest Netflix Mandate ‘Sandy Wexler’ Could Use Better Management [Review]

There are essentially two types of Adam Sandler movies, though they sometimes come in varying shades. On the left side are the more casual, laissez-faire affairs, wherein the popular comedic actor/producer plays an exaggerated variation of his real-life, good-hearted slacker persona. Some of them are charming enough (“Billy Madison,” “The Wedding Singer,” “50 First Dates“), some are mixed (“Big Daddy,” “Spanglish“), and a few are, err, curious failures (“Eight Crazy Nights,” “Click,” “The Cobbler“), but the rest stink of cash-grabbing laziness (the “Grown Ups” movies, “Just Go With It,” “Blended“).

Though Bella Thorne has been open about being bisexual since last year, the actress says she’s never had a girlfriend — something she’d like to change.

“I’ve done other stuff with girls, but I want to actually date a girl,” Thorne told Harper’s Bazaar for a shoot that recreates Marilyn Monroe’s 1961 nearly-nude photo series.

Admitted Thorne, “I can’t tell if a girl is hitting on me or she just wants to be friends. And I don’t want to flirt with a girl if she thinks I’m just being her friend. What if I kiss a girl and she’s like, ‘Oh, I’m just your friend dude, I can’t believe you just crossed that boundary.’ I’m confused on what they want from me.”

CinemaCon 2017: ‘Dunkirk,’ ‘The Beguiled,’ ‘Baby Driver,’ and the New Woody Allen Get Sneak Peeks

CinemaCon 2017: ‘Dunkirk,’ ‘The Beguiled,’ ‘Baby Driver,’ and the New Woody Allen Get Sneak Peeks
Back in the day, when CinemaCon still was known as ShoWest, Adam Sandler was the conference’s standard bearer for A-list celebrity. In 1999, he won Comedy Star of the Year (for “The Waterboy”); in 2003, he received the conference’s Male Star of the Year (for “Punch-Drunk Love”). His popularity persisted once the conference was rebranded: In 2013, he took the stage on a chariot to promote “Grown Ups 2,” and won the Star award again in 2014 (“Blended”). Don’t expect to see him this year; he’s just signed his second four-picture deal with Netflix. However, the show that once helped define his career goes on.

CinemaCon hosts about 5,000 Nato exhibitors, studio chiefs and marketing staff, independent producers and distributors, concessionaires, agents, and press. When they’re not engaged in the battle over who owns the moviegoing audience, they expect the rituals to remain the same: Major studios present show reels,

Trailer Watch: Drew Barrymore is a Charming Zombie in “Santa Clarita Diet”

Santa Clarita Diet

Netflix’s “Santa Clarita Diet” sees two-time Emmy nominee Drew Barrymore playing Sheila Hammond, a real estate agent, mother, wife, and zombie — or as her son prefers to describe her condition, “dead and also undead.” “I don’t like that word [zombie] — I think it’s inherently negative,” he explains in a newly released trailer for the series.

Few have the ability to make a flesh-eating creature charming, but Barrymore’s Sheila is just that, whether she’s munching on raw ground beef, savoring a severed arm, or speaking candidly about her newfound condition. “I do like the way I feel,” she admits in the spot. “I have endless energy and I sleep two hours a night. I get so much done.”

It’s going to take Sheila and her family time to adjust, but it looks like her kids and husband are committed to remaining by her side.

Check out the Nsfw trailer for some hints about how Sheila became a zombie, and to see how the Hammonds plan to manage her illegal — and immoral— tastes. “The Santa Clarita Diet” hits Netflix February 3. Timothy Olyphant (“Justified”) co-stars.

Barrymore is one of the series’ executive producers. Her recent acting credits include “Miss You Already,” “Blended,” and a guest spot on “Odd Mom Out.”
