Scream 4 Coming To A Theater Near You Soon


Scream 4 Coming To A Theater Near You Soon
Got to go with what make you money. The Franchise films. Other then that what does the Weinstein company have going for them to keep them going?

Promising that "I'm going back to doing what I do best," Bob Weinstein is revving up franchises and genre films for Dimension, with familiar faces onboard (e.g., Neve Campbell has just signed for "Scream 4") and a new emphasis on 3D.

"Scream 4" will start production in April or May as the first of a new trilogy, and the company is talking to Wes Craven to direct, Weinstein reports. In addition to Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette will return to the "Scream" franchise.

Robert Rodriguez is writing "Spy Kids 4," which he will direct in 3D. The movie will be made in partnership with Disney and will start shooting in March, Weinstein said.

We reported earlier, the company wants to shoot "Halloween III" in 3D, aiming to release it in October 2010. Dimension also is remaking the cult classic "Children of the Corn."

The first two "Scream" pictures grossed more than $100 million each, while "Scream 3" grossed $89 million in the U.S.

Venom Movie Looks Likely To Get Made Soon


Venom Movie Looks Likely To Get Made Soon
We can only hope that the Venom Movie that Rhett and Paul wrote will be better then what we saw in Spider-Man #. The only Good part about Spider-Man 3 was our good Friend Michael Papajohn Reprising his role in the movie as Dennis Carradine / Carjacker. Or the Man who killed Uncle Ben?

Now Sony is going forward with a Venom spin off movie, which pretty much has fans split down the middle. Will it finally do the fanged black-ooze baddie justice, or will it be more of the same? The good news is that Zombieland co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have been tasked with penning the project (Zombieland is awesome, so fingers crossed).

Today Wernick confirmed to us that the project is still moving forward and the writing team has turned the script in to the suits at Sony. "We've written two drafts of Venom, and the studio has it, and they're pushing forward in whatever ways they push forward," Wernick told SCI FI Wire in an exclusive interview.

So when might Venom be going into production? "We're not sure, [but] we've turned in our two drafts," said Wernick.

One big question has been whether a Venom movie might happen even before Spider-Man 4, but that now appears unlikely. The latest rumors have Spidey 4 shooting in early 2010. When asked about the relationship between the two movies, Wernick was tight-lipped. "We can't really talk about that, unfortunately," the writer said before adding, "Basically, the studio and Marvel and the Arads are taking our drafts and going beyond and figuring out what's the next step."

New Kick Ass Trailer For "The Book of Eli"


New Kick Ass Trailer For "The Book of Eli" Starring Denzel Washington

Trailer shows Denzel As an Action Hero that takes no Shit. The Trailer has a Road Warrior feel to it.I don't think that Denzel has had a role where he was an Action star,other then Man on Fire.

And you can not go wrong with any movie also starring Gary Oldman (True Romance- Classic Role).He is such a versatile actor and one of the best.

With the Hughes brothers directing the movie, forget about it. One of my favorite movies of all times is Menace II Society Which was their first film, and I think to this date was their best movie they have made. Can The Book Of Eli change me option?

Warner Brothers describes The Book of Eli this way: Washington plays a lone warrior named Eli who fights his way across the desolate wasteland of near-future America to realize his destiny and deliver the knowledge in a book that can bring civilization back from the brink of destruction and save the future of humanity.

Ron Howard Going To Tackle "The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft"


Ron Howard Going To Tackle "The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft"

After releasing two films this year, Ron Howard is planning his next move, and this week he sounded most excited about directing a big-budget adaptation of "The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft," based on the Image Comics series.

"It very cleverly uses H.P. Lovecraft in a fictional way, but there's some loose biographical elements. But it certainly has the flavor and the tone of Lovecraft," Howard told me during an interview for an upcoming story on a different topic. "The character is a very young Lovecraft."

It didn't sound like "Lovecraft" would be slipping into that category, and, just based on Howard's enthusiam, I'm guessing the comic-book adaptation will be the next movie set for the 55-year-old Oklahoma native. "You just never know," Howard said, "development is a minefield or a high-wire act or whatever you want to call it, but yeah, hopefully that it moves along and I will be directing that one."

Sam Raimi To Produce "Refuge"


Sam Raimi To Produce "Refuge"

The genre maestro has signed on to produce a supernatural horror pic of that name, based on a pitch from up-and-coming British director Corin Hardy. The project has been set up at Mandate, where Raimi's Ghost House Pictures has a deal.

"Refuge" centers on a remote town terrorized by a Yeti, the mythological creature native to the mountains of the Himalayas. Hardy will direct from a script by fellow British writer Tom De Ville.

Meanwhile, Blum's Blumhouse Prods. will finance a short film with the same premise as the "Refuge" feature. Hardy and De Ville will work on that as well. The idea is to offer a teaser that can help Hardy refine his vision even as the script is being developed.

David Cronenberg To Remake "The Fly" Again


David Cronenberg To Remake "The Fly" Again

I loved this movie as a kid. I still remember watching it over and over again. I couldn't get over the bathroom scene with his ear and also the monkey in the machine.
Not so sure about remaking a movie that you already remade. Do we really need another remake of a remake? Looks like some might think that we do.

The auteur is in talks to develop a reboot of the 1986 classic with Fox, the studio that released that film, writing and potentially directing the new pic.

The move marks an about-face for the Canadian director, who in the past has said he did not want to be involved on a remake of the film. Cronenberg did work on an opera version of "The Fly" that was staged first in Paris and then in Los Angeles.

The 1986 title, itself a remake of Kurt Neumann's 1958 sci-fi classic, starred Jeff Goldblum and became a huge hit for Fox, earning $40 million and turning into a phenomenon. It centered on Seth Brundle (Goldblum), an eccentric scientist who, after an experiment with teleportation goes awry, is transformed into a fly. Geena Davis starred as Goldblum's love interest and partner, Veronica.

Twilight's Stephenie Meyer Adult Novel "The Host" To Become A Movie


Twilight's Stephenie Meyer Adult Novel "The Host" To Become A Movie


It's not like she already doesn't have the adults on her side with her Twilight novel's now she is really going to hook them with her novel "The Host" which is also going to be made into a film.
Do you hear that? He bank account getting even Bigger.

Producers Nick Wechsler, Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz have used their own money to acquire screen rights to “The Host,” the first adult novel written by Stephenie Meyer, author of the “Twilight” series.

Andrew Niccol will write the script and direct.

Meyer’s novel is a love story set in the near future on Earth, which has been assimilated by an alien species that call themselves “Souls.” They are benevolent parasites that subsume the conscious of humans and take possession of their bodies. One such soul, The Wanderer (so named because she has wandered among so many different worlds) is fused with a dying human named Melanie Stryder, in an attempt to locate the last pocket of surviving humans on Earth. The Wanderer cannot subsume the forceful Melanie, and they battle for the girl’s memories and her spirit.

The trio wanted to make a science fiction film and fixed on “The Host.” In addition to writing four volumes of the “Twilight” series, Meyer has been heavily involved in the blockbuster screen transfers, and she spurned several overtures for “The Host.”


Niccol read the book, met the producers and author, and the New Zealand-born writer/director sparked to the assignment.

“We wanted Stephenie to be involved in the adaptation, and have her endorse and be part of the creative decisions,” Wechsler said. “`Twilight’ has proven she more more about what works than most.”

He-Man "Masters of the Universe" Might Have Found A New Home


He-Man Might Have Found A New Home

This movie keeps going back and forth,it's going to get made it's not. Let's hope that this is going to be the last stop for this film and get made.

Just weeks after “Masters of the Universe” parted ways with Warner Bros., the Mattel toy property is in negotiations to be preemptively picked up by Columbia with Escape Artists attached to produce.

After months of deal-wrangling, Warners picked up “Universe” in 2007, hiring several writers and earlier this year set John Stevenson to direct. The two companies eventually began seeing two opposing visions for the movie and when the option came up, both sides decided to let it lapse.

The 1980s show, named “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe,” followed a blond warrior named Prince Adam who, when uttering the magic words, "By the power of Grayskull -- I have the power," turned into the heroic He-Man. He and his allies -- Battle Cat, Man-at-Arms and Orko -- defended their planet Eternia from the evil forces of Skeletor, who tried week after week to conquer the fortress Castle Grayskull, which imbued He-Man with his powers.

David Goyer Is Going To Take On Ghost Rider Sequel


David Goyer Is Going To Take On Ghost Rider

Alright, now I'm seeing a trend in superhero sequels. Batman got better, The Hulk got alot better, now this... Let's cross our finger.

Columbia Pictures has begun to rev the throttle on a second installment of the Marvel Comics character “Ghost Rider.”

David Goyer is in early talks to create the story and supervise writers for a film expected to once again star Nicolas Cage, who played the highly flammable cyclist in the 2007 original.


Through a spokesperson, Goyer said he hadn’t signed on yet. But plans are already under way to base the sequel on a “Ghost Rider” script written years ago by Goyer, whose superhero work includes hit screen transfers of DC’s “Batman Begins” and Marvel’s “Blade” franchise. The original “Ghost Rider” was scripted by director Mark Steven Johnson.

The activity on “Ghost Rider” follows a flurry of activity on Marvel characters at almost every studio but Disney, which acquired Marvel Entertainment in a $4 billion deal.

The activity is necessary for those studios to keep the superhero properties. If the properties atrophy, they can be reclaimed by Marvel Entertainment, which happened with such properties as Dr. Strange, Black Panther and Iron Man, the latter of which languished at New Line before Marvel turned it into the self-financed blockbuster.
.
Arad—who is producing both Marvel’s “Ghost Rider” and “Spider-Man” at Columbia—said that on films that Disney doesn’t distribute, Marvel gets lucrative first dollar gross fees, and is well compensated for the use of its characters in the Universal theme park. The acquisition’s real upside, the library of Marvel characters, can be mined for decades, Arad said.

The Goyer-scripted “Blade” trilogy, Marvel’s first film success.

New Set Photos From the Movie "Fighter"

The Movie is a drama about boxer "Irish" Micky Ward's unlikely road to the world light welterweight title. His Rocky-like rise was shepherded by half-brother Dicky, a boxer-turned-trainer who rebounded in life after nearly being KO'd by drugs and crime. If you have never seen him fight I think that he had his best fights against the late Arturo Gatti.

'Voltron' Movie in Legal Hell


'Voltron' Movie in Legal Hell
I just wish they would really just get this movie made. Enough messing around make this movie happen soon. Before it gets lost in Development hell.

Japanese animation property "Voltron: Defender of the Universe" has become the subject of a legal battle between a group of indie producers and a family company that controls the property.

In a suit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, indie producers James Young, Ford Oelman and Mark Costa of banners Animus Films and NHO Entertainment allege that St. Louis-based World Events, which holds rights to the television property, and its partner Kickstart Prods. negotiated illegally with other producers during what the producers say was an exclusive period.

"World Events secretly conspired with Jason Netter and Kickstart Entertainment to find investors and make the movie without NHO and Animus during the terms of the exclusive deal," the suit says.

The plaintiffs are suing for breach of contract, fraud and interference with contractual relations, and are seeking various forms of damages.

World Events and Kickstart volleyed back on Tuesday, with a spokesperson for the defendants saying "this lawsuit is frivolous and without merit, and we will defend ourselves vigorously," adding "fortunately, these baseless claims do not in any way encumber the film or any other Voltron project, and we are excited to proceed on the long-awaited Voltron feature film with our partner Atlas."

More Casting News For Marvel's Thor Movie


More Casting News For Marvel's Thor Movie

Movie is shaping quite well now. Here are some new additions to the movie.

Jaimie Alexander (Kyle XY) and Colm Feore (The Chronicles of Riddick) have joined the cast of Thor, based on the Marvel Comics franchise, joining Star Trek's Chris Hemsworth in the Kenneth Branagh-directed movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Hemsworth will play the Norse god. Tom Hiddleston plays Loki, the god of mischief, who serves as the movie's villain, and Natalie Portman is Thor's human love, Jane Foster, the trade paper reported:

In Marvel's epic fantasy, Alexander is playing Sif, a skilled Asgardian warrior who can hold her own against any man. She also is one of Thor's loves.

Feore's character is shrouded in mystery—the studio isn't even sending the actors the script—though it is known to be a villain.

The movie's story centers on Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions re-ignite an ancient war. As punishment, Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans. Once here, he learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends dark forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

Heroes Season 4 Premiere Review


Heroes Season 4 Premiere Review
By April Meneghetti


The show opens with a funeral for the brother of the leader of a group of carnies that are going to have a big role this season. The leader is a man named Samuel played by Robert Knepper, who I loved in Prison Break. This guy really knows how to play the bad guy so that you like him, in a sick twisted way.



We see our “heroes” scattered, living their own lives. Clare is away at college, Peter is back to working as a paramedic, Hero and Ando are back in Japan , Matt is back at the police dept, and Nathan (or should I say Sylar) is back to work as a politician.



Is it just me or is there something off about Clare’s new college buddy? Does she have a power? Did she kill Clare’s new roommate? I guess we will have to wait and see. One thing is for sure, I don’t see Clare having the normal college experience.



Peter is back to using his powers for good and saving lives. I have to say that I hated it when he lost his powers. I think that was one of the worst story lines of the past seasons. But will it last? We see him getting involved with H.R.G. towards the end of the episode.



Hero and Ando start a new business “Dial a Hero”. Their first call? Saving a cat stuck up on a building. Not the start that Hero was looking for but it will work. We find out that Hero began his quest to become a “hero” 14 years prior when he got a certain fortune at a carnival. We also find out that Ando has always had a crush on Hero’s sister, Kimiko, but at that same carnival he spilled his slushie on her favorite dress and she has hated him ever since. Hero accidentally teleports himself back to that night but refuses to change the past even though it might help him now if he never started on his quest. He meets Samuel who convinces Hero that it might be good to change some things in the past when he prevents Ando from spilling is slushie on Kimiko and sees that they are now in love when he returns to the present.



Angela is worried that Nathan is reverting back to Sylar and rightly so. Sylar’s abilities are starting to manifest. Angela tries to get Matt to help her but he has sworn off using his powers (he is trying to start a life again with his wife and son). One of the funniest scenes for me this episode was Matt at a drug user support group talking about not “using”. Matt is starting to be haunted and taunted by Sylar who wants his body back.




Lastly, we see Tracy again as she tries to kill HRG. Danko arrives just in time to save him but Danko doesn’t last much longer than that. Thankfully he is killed off this episode. I really didn’t like his character. At the end of the episode it looks like HRG and Tracy will be teaming up.



I think that this was a great episode and glad to see that it looks like the series is back on track.

On Other News

Overnight ratings are in, and the Heroes’ Season 4 two-hour premiere came in … dead last. Only a meager 6 million viewers tuned into the show, down a staggering 46% from last year’s season premiere, according to THR.

Details On The Sequel To Sherlock Holmes


Details On The Sequel To Sherlock Holmes
Movie hasn't even come out yet and they are already talking sequel. Hope their eggs don't hatch to soon.


Brad Pittis set to star as Moriarty in the new pic, say people familiar with the project, though there is no deal in place for him to take the part.

Susan Downey, Dan Lin and Joel Silver produced "Holmes," a holiday release that, from well-received footage at Comic-Con, appeared to be an action-heavy rendition of the world Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created.

Guy Ritchie helms the pic, and Downey stars as the title character; Jude Law plays protege Watson, and Rachel McAdams stars as love interest Irene Adler. Much of the talent is expected to return in the new pic, as could Ritchie as director.

Pitt has been the subject of a litany of blog rumors as appearing in several shots of "Holmes" as Moriarty, but those familiar with the script say the character is in shadow and cannot be recognized.

Michael Robert Johnson, Anthony Peckham, Lionel Wigram and Simon Kinberg all worked on the screenplay for the first pic, which is set in the world of Holmes but creates a new story and challenges for the iconic characters. It's unclear whether the new pic would also invent a new story or draw more from previous Conan Doyle material.

It's increasingly common for a studio to begin developing sequels ahead of a movie's release, enabling a second pic to get into production faster than it normally would, and at a comparatively low cost. Warners began pushing "The Hangover," as the movie's prerelease buzz began to grow, though did not close deals until after the movie had begun raking in boxoffice dollars. Read more...

Details of Toy Story 3 Plot Revealed


Details of Toy Story 3 Plot

Spoiler Alert- Spoiler Alert Turn Back Now If You Don't Want To Know Any Details!!
“Toy Story 3” begins three days before Andy heads off to college. With Andy’s Mom standing in her son’s bedroom, telling him that he has to make some tough decisions in regards to his belongings. This now 18-year-old has to decide what he wants to throw out, what he wants to keep / place into storage, and – more importantly – what Andy wants to take with him to college.
Andy then sighs and tells his Mom “Nobody’s gonna want these toys. They’re junk.”

As for the rest of “Toy Story 3” ‘s storyline … Given that the promotional catchphrase for this new Pixar Animation Studios production is “No Toy Gets Left Behind” … Well, we’ll just have to assume that this upcoming release is more of an epic adventure story than the last two “Toy Story” films.(Which is something that Lee Unkrich actually verified when he and I spoke at Comic-Con back in July. As part of a press roundtable interview, Lee talked about how the “Toy Story 3” story team had actually drawn inspiration from Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. To be specific, how Unkrich and his crew had labored to make “TS3” seem like a continuation of the first two “Toy Story” films. So that – when you were finally able to watch all three of these movies back-to-back – they’d then tell one fairly seamless story.)


Beyond that … You’ve probably already heard all of the other big news associated with “Toy Story 3.” That Michael Keaton has been hired to voice a somewhat villainous take on Barbie’s longtime companion, Ken. And that Timothy Dalton has been signed to voice Mr. Prinkle Pants. Who is this Stieff-like stuffed hedgehog in dressed lederhosen who fancies himself a thespian.

As for the rest of the new additions to “Toy Story 3” ‘s vocal cast, Lasseter did reveal that Bonnie Hunt, Jeff Garlin and Whoopi Goldberg will be voicing roles in this movie. Though John was very careful to not reveal which parts these performers will be playing in this picture.

What Nicolas Cage's Superman Could Have Been


What Nicolas Cage Superman Could Have Been

What could this movie had done for the Superman Franchise, I know one thing it would have kept it alive. Very odd screen shot but none the less it is out there.
Ever wonder what Nicolas Cage would have looked like had he played Superman in the late 1990s movie Superman Lives? That was the scrapped version that would have been directed by Tim Burton from a screenplay by Kevin Smith (and rewritten by Wesley Strick) and produced by Jon Peters.

Cage's casting as the last son of Krypton caused as much of a stir amongst fanboys as Michael Keaton's had when he won the title role in Burton's Batman. Filming on Superman Lives was to have begun in 1998 in Pittsburgh, but Warner Bros. ultimately put the project on hold due to its ballooning budget. Both Cage and Burton eventually dropped out of the project, but not after concept art and costume designs were made. And after years in-development and millions spent, Warners would ultimately scrap the entire "Death of Superman" storyline, jettison Peters as the picture's producer, and take a whole new approach with 2006's Superman Returns.

Mania points out this video at TimBurton.jp (also available at YouTube) that purports to show a costume test of Cage in the redesigned Superman suit. Cage sports long black hair, a la the hairstyle worn by Superman after his rebirth in the comics. A screen cap from the video can be seen below.

"Glee" Is Picked Up For The First Season


"Glee" Is Picked Up For The First Season
Fox has given frosh skein "Glee" the first full-season pickup of the new fall season.

This should have been a no brainier. The show is a breath of fresh air to TV, something original and new. Once I saw the preview at Comic Con this year I was hooked and looking forward to the rest of the season

The "back nine" pickup, which was expected , comes as "Glee" has shown signs of becoming a consistently strong performer for Fox. The show averaged a solid 3.5 rating and 9 share among adults 18-49 in week one, and dipped just 9%.

Fox Entertainment prexy Kevin Reilly, who announced the pickup on Monday - the first day of the new TV season - called "Glee" a "gem of a show."

"It's already got the makings of a cultural phenomenon," Reilly said. "I've seen all 13 episodes, and Ryan Murphy, his team and the talented 'Glee' cast have knocked our socks off with their incredible work."

Murphy said he was gratified to earn the prize for first show picked up, "and that this underdog series, like its characters, will get the chance to keep singing.

"We're grateful for the incredible passion shown by everyone involved - the unbelievable fans, the cast, crew, our partners at the network and studio, and even music artists and labels," he said.

Murphy co-created "Glee" with Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. Murphy, Falchuk and Dante Di Loreto exec produce for 20th Century Fox TV and Ryan Murphy TV.

"Glee" stars Matthew Morrison as a teacher who revives a glee club full of misfits - to the chagrin of rival Jane Lynch. Show's cast also includes Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Jessalyn Gilsig, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley and Mark Salling.

Jack Kirby Estate Going To Court


Jack Kirby Estate Trying To Regain His Share Of Copyright


The estate of Jack Kirby, co-creator of Captain America, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men, The Avengers, Iron Man, Hulk, The Silver Surfer and Thor and has sent notices terminating copyright to publishers Marvel and Disney, as well as film studios that have made movies and TV shows based on characters he created or co-created, including Sony, Universal, 20th Century Fox and Paramount Pictures.

Just as the Jerry Siegel estate has done so with rights to Superman, so Kirby's estate is looking to regain his share of copyright in the characters and their use in comics and other media. the estate is using the same lawyers as the Siegels, Toberoff & Associates, who have been fairly successful in their case against DC/Warner so far.

Such claims, if found valid, would begin from 2014 and, as always, its worth noting that Marvel/Disney will still own the trademarks of the characters in comics, and the studios in movies. The likelihood is that, if successful, the Kirby estate would enter into negotiation with Marvel over terms to continue publishing comics based on his work.

Kirby battled Marvel for years over the return of the physical artwork to his comics, and was asked to sign documents that would have irrevocable and specifically signed away rights to the characters, something he refused to do. He also contributed to other creators fights with Marvel, including Steve Gerber, co-creating Destroyer Duck with Gerber in a benefit book over the Howard The Duck deal.

Born Jacob Kurtzberg, Jack Kirby is considered the most influential superhero comic artist in the world, though he also worked for decades in romance, war and science-fiction comics. His DC work also provided much of the backbone for the recent blockbuster series Final Crisis from DC. Currently Dynamite, in agreement with the Kirby Estate, is working on a new Kirbyverse line, publishing characters that Kirby created independently of Marvel and DC.

He has four surviving children, Susan, Neal, Barbara and Lisa and two grandchildren, Jeremy and Tracy.
