Brad Bird Wants to Develop His 1906 San Fransisco Earthquake Project as a Film and TV Series

Director Brad Bird has been working on trying to develop a film project based around the great San Fransisco earthquake. It’s called 1906 and it was supposed to be Bird's fist live-action feature film. Instead, he got sidetracked and went on to direct Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and Tomorrowland.

The filmmaker, who recently helmed Incredibles 2, gave an update on the project which he’s been trying to get into production since 2007. Now he’s looking at developing the project as a film and a TV series because there’s so much story to tell.

While talking about 1906 on the Variety podcast Playback, Bird explains his big ideas for the project, saying:

“It wants to be a longer story. It’s a really fascinating moment in history. Prior to the earthquake, San Francisco is this really happening city that’s somewhere between the Old West and the 20th Century.

What 'Incredibles 2' Says About the Modern Superhero Craze

What 'Incredibles 2' Says About the Modern Superhero Craze
Out of the many filmmakers whose careers have soared thanks to working at Pixar Animation Studios, just two have leapt from animation to live-action: Andrew Stanton and Brad Bird. Stanton was the director of the 2012 science-fiction adventure John Carter, which sadly wasn’t able to break out at the box office, so just a few years later, he shifted back to animation with Finding Dory, a sequel to what had been his most financially successful film yet, Finding Nemo. Bird has directed two live-action films: the superlative Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol and the 2015 sci-fi tale Tomorrowland, the latter of which was also unsuccessful ...

New Mission: Impossible 6 Poster Unites Ethan Hunt's Team

New Mission: Impossible 6 Poster Unites Ethan Hunt's Team
A brand new poster for Mission: Impossible 6 has arrived online. The arrival of this one-sheet comes with the announcement that a new trailer for the highly-anticipated next installment of the enduring franchise is also coming this week. We were treated to a great, action-packed teaser trailer during the Super Bowl earlier this year, but this should be more of a full-length trailer that might give us a better idea of the plot at hand in Mission: Impossible - Fallout. Paramount had this to say upon releasing the poster, promising the new footage should be here on Wednesday.

"This time, they have no choice but to accept. Check out the official poster for #MissionImpossible Fallout, starring @TomCruise. Trailer in 2 days."

As for the poster, it's a slightly less stylish one than we were treated to previously. Instead, this one focuses on cramming all of the major characters from the Mission: Impossible

The Iron Giant Director Brad Bird Has an Open Invitation to Direct a Star Wars Movie

With Lucasfilm planning to make lots and lots of Star Wars films over the next several years, any talented director in Hollywood seems to have a shot at directing one if they want. Director Brad Bird recently revealed in an interview that he is one of those directors. In fact, it seems like he has an open invitation to direct something if he comes up with an idea that he wants to pitch to them.

While talking with Fandango to discuss Incredibles 2 he was asked about the possibility of taking on a Star Wars film project, and this is what he had to say on the matter:

“I’ve known Kathy Kennedy a long time. And I’ve known George [Lucas] quite a while too. And certainly, that’s a very fun universe and if I could think of something that would be perfect for that I would give Kathy a call,

Incredibles 2 Poster: Pixar's Superhero Family Is Going Back to Work

Disney and Pixar have released a brand new poster for The Incredibles 2. Of all the movies Pixar has ever produced, perhaps no movie is more deserving of a sequel than 2004's The Incredibles. It may have taken 14 years, but we're finally getting that long-awaited sequel this summer, with the majority of the original cast and original director Brad Bird all on board. Now, a brand new poster has made its way online, teasing that it's time for our heroes to get back to work. Though, it might not be the kind of work you're expecting.

The new Incredibles 2 poster features all of the family's super suits in a laundry basket. We know that the sequel is going to pick up directly after the events of the first movie, but the dynamic in this installment is going to change dramatically. This time around, Bob, aka Mr. Incredible, is going to

Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg Reunite in New Mission: Impossible 6 Photo

Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg Reunite in New Mission: Impossible 6 Photo
A brand new photo from Mission: Impossible 6 has surfaced. Director Christopher McQuarrie shared the photo on social media, which reunites Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg. This is the first official photo that's been released since Cruise suffered his severe injury while filming the movie back in August. Things seem to be moving right along now though and the movie should still be able to make its July 27, 2018, release date, despite the delay.

The new Mission: Impossible 6 photo looks great, in stark black and white, with Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt out in front and Simon Pegg's loyal Benji Dunn behind him. The photo doesn't really tell us anything about the movie, but it does serve as a reminder that we're in for another (hopefully) excellent spy adventure next year. With Spectre having disappointed in 2015, Mission: Impossible really has become the premiere spy franchise in Hollywood at the moment.

The Incredibles 2 Trailer Is Finally Here

The Incredibles 2 Trailer Is Finally Here
We may never get a good Fantastic Four movie, but Disney is giving us the next best thing. Arguably a much better thing. After more than a decade, we finally have our first look at Pixar's The Incredibles 2. Though, we don't get to see much. Director Brad Bird is finally returning to the world he created in 2004 by bringing us one of the most highly-anticipated superhero movies of 2018. And considering that Avengers: Infinity War is also coming out next year, that is a bold statement. But a deservedly bold statement. Disney released a synopsis for the movie along with an image and poster.

"Everyone's favorite family of superheroes is back in Incredibles 2 but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of "normal" life.

Tom Cruise injured as stunt goes wrong by Jennie Kermode - 2017-08-14 12:51:07

Cruise in action in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol

Tom Cruise was injured yesterday when a stunt he was filming for Mission: Impossible 6 went wrong. Footage of the incident, obtained by TMZ, shows the 55 year old actor rigged up for a scene in which he jumps from one building to the roof of another. Too low down as he reaches the second building, he hits the side of it, taking the impact against his chest and legs.

The severity of Cruise's injuries is not yet known. Though clearly in pain and limping hard, he was able to move back across the space to the platform on the first building, where he received assistance.

Cruise is unusual in doing almost all his own stunts, something producers discourage because it can dramatically increase the insurance needed for a film - if a star is badly hurt, a whole project may need to be scrapped.

The Incredibles 2 Begins Immediately After The First Film

Hollywood seems dead set on reviving or sequelizing pretty much every property under the sun, but for the longest time it seemed like there would be one beloved film that would go on unacknowledged and left to sit alone on its shelf, and that was Pixar’s 2004 film, The Incredibles. While a sequel seemed like a good proposition, it didn’t help that its creator, filmmaker Brad Bird went on to the world of live-action with movies like Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and Tomorrowland. With the more big budget fare on the horizon, it seemed like fans would have to be okay moving forward without another movie.

But what exactly would an Incredibles 2 entail? Plus, given how long it’s been since the first one (13 years), what would be the timeline? Would it take place in real time, kind of like how the Toy Story series did, or would

Michelle Monaghan Will Return For Mission: Impossible 6

I'm sure you all remember Michelle Monaghan's character Julia Meade from J.J. Abrams' Mission: Impossible III. She was introduced as the wife of Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt in the third film. She also appeared in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. It was revealed in that film that Meade’s death was faked as a way of keeping her safe. Obviously, her marriage with Hunt didn't last.

Writer and director Christopher McQuarrie posted Monaghan’s photo on his Instagram account confirming that Monaghan will be reprising her role in Mission: Impossible 6. I've actually wondered if we would ever see her again in the franchise, so it's good to know that her character will play a role in the next chapter of the franchise.

As of right now, we don't know what her involvement in the film will be or how big of a role she'll have. On top of Cruise,

J.J. Abrams Is Done with Sequels and Reboots

J.J. Abrams Is Done with Sequels and Reboots
Over the past handful of years, J.J. Abrams has made it clear that he is a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood. He may not always make perfect movies, but he has proven that he can tap into what the public really wants to see and has had a lot of success rebooting and reviving beloved properties. He could easily make that his business for the rest of his days, but after the success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he has decided that he is done with sequels and reboots.

The director spoke with People after the Golden Globes recently, since he was there for his role as a producer on HBO's Westworld. During the chat, J.J. Abrams revealed that he is very grateful for the opportunities he has been afforded, but that he really wants to turn his attention to original ideas in the future. Here

Paula Patton Pens Emotional Tribute to Former Father-in-Law Alan Thicke

Paula Patton Pens Emotional Tribute to Former Father-in-Law Alan Thicke
Paula Patton is still mourning the loss of beloved actor Alan Thicke.

The 41-year-old actress was especially close to Alan, given that he was her former father-in-law. Paula married the Growing Pains star's son, singer Robin Thicke, in 2005 -- after the two had dated since their teenage years -- though they separated in February 2014 after 21 years together.

"I knew Alan since I was 15 years old and he had a tremendous effect on my life," Paula Instagrammed on Tuesday alongside a picture of a smiling Alan. "I loved and respected him so much! So many great memories and laughs together. We will miss him so much! His grandson is quite sure he is still here with us in spirit."

The Mummy Gets an Awesome Mission: Impossible Mashup Trailer

I thought the first trailer for Tom Cruise's The Mummy looked a lot like a Mission: Impossible film, only with a heavy supernatural element. It looks like it could have been a crazy storyline for Mission: Impossible 6! Well, video editor Louis Plamondon, a.k.a. Sleepy Skunk, thought the exact same thing and made a fantastically fun trailer mashup for Screen Crush using footage from The Mummy and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. He calls it "Mission: Impossible - Mummy Protocol," and you can enjoy the fruits of his labor below.
