'The Flintstones' is being rebooted for the cinema, though this time (back) as a cartoon, with the help of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. They'll be producing the film, which has already got a writer attached.
Ever since George Lucas sold 'Star Wars' to Disney a year and a half ago, there's been word of sequels and spinoffs in the works. But the production of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' took longer to launch than expected, and so the effort to create those standalone films was put on the back burner. Now that 'Episode 7' is days away from shooting, Disney is beating the drum again, and have announced they'll be at least three new spinoffs coming before 2024.
The trailer for Clint Eastwood's 'Jersey Boys' showcases one of the Oscar-winning actor's strangest choices of material in a long time. Sure, we expect Clint to make Westerns and Oscar pictures, but a full-blown musical? This could get interesting.
Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are one of the greatest comic duos in cinema, so it's exciting to know they're re-teaming to make 'Border Guards.' Currently Adam McKay is eyeing directing, so it could be the trio's third movie together, following 'Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby' and 'Step Brothers.'
Universal is now working on a third version of 'Battlestar Galactica,' this time for the big screen, and have hired 'Transcendence' screenwriter Jack Paglen to write it. As when Ron Moore did it, it's likely that it will take the basic outline and go its own way with it (though there will surely be Cylons and a character named Starbuck).
Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, known for their sketch show 'Key & Peele,' are two of the hottest comedic performers working today so it's no surprise they've been offered a plum movie deal. In this case the duo have signed on to produce the 'Police Academy' reboot for New Line.
The first 'Sex Tape' trailer (the red-band edition, by the way) shows a film that reunites 'Bad Teacher' stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel with director Jake Kasdan for another round of debauchery. This time the couple get themselves in trouble when they try to spice up their love life with some filmed sexual hijinks that they don't know how to delete.
Chadwick Boseman stars in the James Brown biopic 'Get on Up,' and now there's a trailer for the movie about the Godfather of Soul's rise to fame and fortune. Will this follow director Tate Taylor's 'The Help' in being both a late summer hit and an Oscar favorite? It's possible.
Though we're still no closer to knowing who will lead 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' the latest casting rumor suggests that '12 Years a Slave' Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o is up to play one of the villains -- or a descendant of Obi-Wan Kenobi -- in the film.
With the passing of Harold Ramis, it seemed another monkey wrench had been thrown into the plans of the long rumored 'Ghostbusters 3,' which co-writer and star Dan Aykroyd has been working on for over twenty years. Now it's been revealed that commerce trumps tragedy as Sony and director Ivan Reitman are definitely moving forward with the project.
