Charlie's Angles Are Coming To A Television Set Near You

Charlie's Angles Are Coming To A Television Set Near You Who do you want to see play "Charlie’s Angels?" ABC is close to giving a pilot order to a modern version of the classic 1970s TV actioner "Charlie’s Angels." Josh Friedman, who recently adapted the "Terminator" franchise for his Fox series "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," is onboard to write and exec produce the new "Angels." Also involved are original "Charlie’s Angels" producer Leonard Goldberg, who launched the series with Aaron Spelling in 1976, as well as Drew Barrymore, who starred in and produced the 2000 film version and its sequel. Sony Pictures TV is the studio. Insiders said that ABC Entertainment Group topper Steve McPherson is particularly high on this project. But ABC is riding high this fall with its adaptation of another such property, "V," which bowed to boffo numbers. And insiders note that most of those other properties had lai

Super Troopers 2 Being Developed Now

Super Troopers 2 Being Developed Now The Broken Lizard comedy team confirms that they’re three drafts into Super Troopers 2, they have the financing, they’ll soon prepare to take the movie to Fox, and Brian Cox is definitely planning on reprising his role. This morning I had the pleasure of interviewing Jay Chandrasekhar, Paul Soter, Steve Lemme, and Erik Stolhanske — four of the five members of Broken Lizard, the guys behind Super Troopers, Club Dread, and Beerfest. The bulk of the interview was devoted to their newest comedy, The Slammin’ Salmon , which opens on December 11th, so expect the full interview in a couple of weeks. I did, however, manage to get some solid details about the much-rumored Super Troopers 2. “We have the financing,” Chandrasekhar said. “So we’re going to try to make a deal with Fox.” “We’re like, three drafts into it,” Lemme added. “It’s funny, because we have an independent financier — we have a lot of independent financiers — who are like, ‘Give us that

Ratings For" V "Come Down Crashing

Ratings For" V "Come Down Crashing After last week's record-setting premiere, ABC's "V" was destined to drop in the ratings for episode two. Driven by 1980s nostalgia and plenty of marketing, viewer curiosity ran high for the debut -- a pattern we've seen in recent years for network remakes of "Knight Rider," "90210" and "American Gladiators." Tuesday night's decline, therefore, was not exactly surprising ... yet it was pretty steep. The second "V" hour was seen by 10.7 million viewers and drew a 3.8 rating among adults 18-49, down 27% from last week. That's the largest fall from a premiere we've seen for a scripted show this season. The rating is still a successful number for a freshman drama. If "V" can remain anywhere close to this neighborhood, the show will be fine. The drop put "V" into second place at 8 p.m., with CBS' "NCIS" (21 million, 4.4) resuming control o

Only up side about this film will be that it is being penned by "Mad Men" writer-producer Marti Noxon .

Ragsdale played a teenager who discovers his neighbors are vampires. The new version will keep the comedy-horror tone while modernizing the effects. Producers Michael De Luca, Michael Gaeta and Alison Rosenzweig set up the "Fright Night" project in May. DreamWorks co-president of production Mark Sourian is overseeing for the studio.

Smallville 2 Hour Movie Premiere “Society” and “Legends”

Smallville 2 Hour Movie Premiere “Society” and “Legends” I’ve got some big news for all my Super friends out there. I’m hearing The CW has decided to package Smallville’s upcoming (and highly-anticipated) Justice Society-themed two-parter into a two-hour movie event airing on Jan. 29. The Geoff Johns-penned episodes — titled “Society” and “Legends” and featuring such DC Comics stalwarts as Stargirl ( Britt Irvin ) , Hawkman ( Michael Shanks ) , and Dr. Fate ( Brent Stait ) — were originally designed to air separately. But, according to Smallville insiders, CW execs felt they could get more mileage out of combining them. Please Leave A Comment- Source- EW

Twilight's Edward and Jacob's Love Triangle With Bella

Twilight's Edward and Jacob's Love Triangle With Bella Team Edward and Team Jacob face off in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third film in the vampire series based on Stephenie Meyers' best-selling books, and they share a lot of screen time in the third installment. After Bella (Kristen Stewart) falls for vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) in Twilight, Edward breaks up with her in New Moon, and Jacob (Taylor Lautner) gains traction by supporting Bella in her time of need. It doesn't hurt that he's a buff werewolf who frequently shows off his glistening pecs in the rain. ( Spoilers ahead! ) The third film, Eclipse, brings the love triangle to a boil in a literal three-way scene. "I loved playing with the three characters together," Stewart said. "There's literally a scene where Edward and Jacob, who are mortal enemies, are in a tent with a sleeping Bella in between them. It's a ridiculous circumstance to find yourself in." Lautner

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson To Star In Shazam Film

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson To Star In Shazam Film Ryan Reynolds going to play every super hero out there? Not Captain Marvel. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is going to star as Black Adam in the new Shazam film. I would love to see him finally play a villain in a film. Most of his films he has always been the hero, this would be a nice change for him. Like the old days when he was the villain for some point in WWE . Bill Birch, the co-writer of the upcoming “ Shazam ” feature film has revealed that Ryan Reynolds was his first choice to portray Captain Marvel on the big screen. “I always thought Ryan Reynolds would have been interesting but now that he’s Green Lantern that’s not an option,” Birch told Cinefools . Birch also elaborated on whether he believes Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is still onboard to play Captain Marvel’s nemesis, Black Adam. “My rule of thumb is that no actor is committed to do a movie until the first day of shooting is over with,” Birch

Wanda and Sheneneh To Get Their Own Film. Remember Them?

Wanda and Sheneneh To Get Their Own Film. Remember Them? It all started with a skit on the BET Awards Show and now it's turning into a film. I did enjoy Wanda and Sheneneh when they were on their respected shows, but to make a movie with both of them. Wow unheard of. Screen Gems has picked up the rights to Sheneneh And Wanda, a comedy about two African-American ladies who start robbing banks. Oh, and the ladies in question will be played, in full-on drag, by Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence. Both Sheneneh and the cross-eyed Wanda have been knocking about for years – Lawrence came up with Sheneneh on his self-titled TV show, while Foxx played Wanda during his In Living Color days – but nobody had the bright idea of combining the two in an actual, honest-to-goodness movie until June of this year, when the two graced the BET Awards by making a fake trailer for a fake movie, Skank Robbers, which united the duo. Reaction to the trailer – which actually has a couple of decent lines in it,

"Sgt. Rock" Coming To A Theater Near You

"Sgt. Rock" Coming To A Theater Near You “Sgt. Rock,” a long-gestating project based on the World War II hero from DC Comics, is moving forward … by going into the future. The only down side to this film being made is that it will be set in the future not during WWII. I feel that this direction will kill the film. Francis Lawrence is attached to direct, and Chad St. John, who wrote the spec “The Days Before,” is charged with writing the new take. Joel Silver, who has been steering the project for nearly 20 years, is teaming with Akiva Goldsman, who recently boarded as producer, to bring the project to the big screen via Warner Bros. Sgt. Frank Rock was the leader of his infantry unit, Easy Company. He first appeared in a 1959 issue of “Our Army at War.” In 1977, the comic was renamed “Sgt. Rock” and ran until 1988. Until now, “Rock” has retained its World War II setting, with Silver and the studio trying to make a big-budget action adventure movie that was a throwback to flic

Spiderman-4 Rachel McAdams Or Romola Garai To Play Black Cat?

Spiderman -4 Rachel McAdams Or Romola Garai To Be Black Cat? The Rumors are starting to go around. We can exclusively reveal that actress Rachel McAdams has met with the producers of the film for a major role. McAdams (of 'Wedding Crashers' and 'Sherlock Holmes' fame) is said to be a top contender for the role of Felicia Hardy, known to comic fans as The Black Cat . Fans recall that when Spidey first encounters the Black Cat, she's a cat burglar looking to free her ailing father from prison. She becomes smitten with the web- slinger , to the point of a stalker-level obsession. Later stories had Peter reciprocating her affection and her becoming a lover, a friend and ally (the perfect thing to allow Sony to create a Spidey spin-off). Not only that, but Romola Garai has auditioned for the role. Garai is a 27-year-old British actress who starred in Amazing Grace, The Other Man and Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights. In the latest issue of The Observer, Garai shar

Steven Tyler Has Quit Aerosmith

Steven Tyler has quit Aerosmith It comes just months after the singer spoke out publicly to dismiss reports the band was on the verge of splitting following a year of cancelled tour dates, injuries and accidents. In August (09), Tyler broke his shoulder after falling off stage while performing in South Dakota, and the group was forced to scrap the remainder of its summer tour. Perry admitted that following the accident he and Tyler didn't speak for more than a month, prompting rumours the band's future was in jeopardy. And it seems fans' fears were justified - guitarist Perry has revealed his pal has left the rock group after its performance as part of the Formula One racing season's final weekend in Abu Dhabi last weekend. He tells the Las Vegas Sun, "Steven quit as far as I can tell. I don't know any more than you do about it. I got off the plane two nights ago. I saw online that Steven said that he was going to leave the band. I don't know for how long,

'Glee' Helps Struggling Music Industry

'Glee' Helps Struggling Music Industry Its characters may feel like a bunch of unloved high-school misfits, but the quirky musical TV comedy " Glee " is putting smiles on the faces of music industry executives searching for new revenue in an era of plunging album sales. Two months into the 2009-10 TV season, "Glee" is drawing a weekly audience of 8.6 million viewers to the Fox television network. Fans have bought more than two million tunes sung by the show's cast on iTunes, and soundtracks are being compiled and sold in traditional stores. Revenues are being split among Fox and the record company, and artists and music publishers are being paid licensing fees for songs "Glee" uses in musical numbers in each episode. "Record labels have been desperate for new revenue," said Steve Knopper, contributing editor for Rolling Stone magazine. "They are trying to figure out any way to make money and one pretty reliable way is to sync up

Winona Ryder To Star In "Black Swan"

Winona Ryder Is Going To The Ballet. "Swan" centers on a young dancer at the New York City Ballet (Portman) who may or may not be having delusions about a rival dancer (Kunis). The project, which began life at Universal before being reconceived as an indie, has drawn comparisons to "The Others" and other high-end supernatural thrillers. The specialty division is close to climbing aboard Darren Aronofsky 's " Black Swan ," in final negotiations on an agreement to co-finance and distribute the supernatural thriller set in the world of New York ballet. The pic, which stars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, has also rounded out its cast. Winona Ryder has signed on to play an older dancer to Portman's and Kunis' younger performers, while Barbara Hershey and French actor Vincent Cassel are also joining the cast. Shooting is scheduled to start in New York before the end of the year, with a budget estimated to be $10 million-$12 million. Searchlight ha

Project had originally been set up at Universal in early 2007 when the studio bought Ben Ripley's screenplay and attached Topher Grace to star. Universal tapped Shane Abbess to helm last year. Current script includes revises by Billy Ray ("State of Play"). "Source Code" will launch the Vendome slate, according to Rousselet, who said the project exemplifies the types of producers and filmmakers with whom Vendome plans to work.

Avatar Will Cost 500 Million After All Is Said And Done

Avatar Will Cost 500 Million After All Is Said And Done When James Cameron makes a movie he goes big. "Titanic" is a great example. But he definitely makes his money back in the end and then some. Mr. Cameron’s “Titanic,” which took in more than $1.8 billion at the worldwide box office after its release in 1997, was a major corporate event for the News Corporation, then about a third the size of the current conglomerate, which has roughly $30 billion in annual sales. Less than a year after the release, the News Corporation raised nearly $3 billion in a public offering of shares in its filmed entertainment group, partly on the strength of “Titanic.” (It bought those shares back four years ago.) Will Avatar do the same? Movies looks great and I am looking forward to seeing the film when it comes out this year. Can a movie studio make money on a film based on an original and unfamiliar story, with no Hollywood superstars, a vanishing DVD market and a price tag approaching $500
