Looks like Alexander Skarsgard won't be beating his bare, chiseled chest while romping through the jungle any time soon — unless, of course, "True Blood" takes an unexpected turn for its sixth season.
That sound you hear is women across the world groaning in collective dismay, by the way.
Per Deadline, Warner Bros. is — at least temporarily — pulling the plug on the David Yates-led reboot of "Tarzan," which was set to feature "Zero Dark Thirty" femme Jessica Chastain as the dame Jane. Reportedly, the production halt stems from the studio being uncomfortable with the budget on-hand, but there may be a second lurking matter at issue, too: casting. Get More »
This week: Colin Farrell plays a screenwriter who gets an unexpected violent cure for his writer's block in "Seven Psychopaths," a pitch-black British comedy co-starring Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Woody Harrelson.
They must have fed the original "Gremlins" after midnight, because suddenly, there are more. Yes, it's another day and another unnecessary movie reboot potentially underway. Shocker.
It's been almost 30 years since that lovable little mogwai Gizmo sprouted a slew of furball killing machines in the Warner Bros. favorite "Gremlins," so, yeah, it's totally ripe, per Hollywood's
laziness remake tradition right about now.
According to Vulture, the studio is currently negotiating with Steven Spielberg's production company Amblin Entertainment for the right to breathe new life into the classic horror comedy. While such talks may have been unsuccessful in the past, there's reportedly reason to believe it might pan out for Warner Bros. this go-round. Get More »
As America attempts to deal with last Friday morning's Colorado shooting, which left 12 theater patrons dead during a screening of "The Dark Knight Rises," Warner Bros. is dealing with the far less important but no less delicate task of deciding how to respond to the attack on screen as well as off screen.
It's been more than 60 years since Charlton Heston channeled Moses for the Cecil B. DeMille epic "The Ten Commandments," and at least half that long since some of us graduated from Hebrew school, so maybe it's time for a little refresher course on the guy who led the Jews outta Egypt. No? Well, Warner Bros. begs to differ.
According to Deadline, the studio has approached Steven Spielberg to tackle a gigantic new project about the life of Moses called "Gods and Kings." Although it does cover a lot of the same Torah tales of Moses, it's not trying to be a remake of the DeMille epic. The screenplay for the latter was based on a number of sources and research, while "Gods and Kings" goes straight to the Old Testament itself as its source. Get More »
We did! We did! We did taw a puddy tat!
The eternal kid in us just leapt up and ran around the room as word came that Warner Bros. is getting set to release more theatrical 3-D animated shorts, following on the heels of last year's Annie-nominated "Coyote Falls." To be directed by Matthew O'Callaghan (who also directed last year's 'toon), the three new shorts will star Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote, Roadrunner, Tweetie Bird and Sylvester the Cat, with two of them featuring songs recorded in character by the late Mel Blanc. Get More »
Warner Bros. is about to attempt what no creative team has been able to do for more than a decade: revive the "Fletch" franchise.
Since 2000, a slew of actors and filmmakers have been trying to turn around a sequel/reboot of the classic comedy mystery franchise, based on an award-winning series of novels by Gregory McDonald. Chevy Chase embodied the bumbling detective first in the 1985 film "Fletch" and again in 1989's "Fletch Lives." The property has always been a priority, but a sequel has notoriously never come to fruition.
Starting in 2000, recent rabble-rouser Kevin Smith attempted to bring an adaptation of "Fletch Won" to life for Miramax, with familiar faces like Ben Affleck, Jason Lee, Brad Pitt and Jimmy Fallon all up for filling Chase's shoes. Then came "Scrubs"-creator Bill Lawrence, whose Zach Braff-starring version quickly pittered out. Get More »
