Although it was recently revealed that 'Star Wars: Episode 7' would begin filming in Morocco this month, Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn has dropped a bit of a surprise on all of us: the film is already shooting. But the even more surprising revelation is that most of the casting is already complete. Say what?
It's been a while since we reported anything new about the 'Gremlins' reboot over at Warner Bros., but apparently someone's been feeding the execs over there after midnight because sources say it's not only still happening -- it's been put on the fast track. Hide your Mogwais, the 'Gremlins' are coming.
If Hollywood can count on anything, it's nostalgia, which is why it shouldn't be a surprise that there's a 'Goonies' sequel on the way -- yes, even 28 years later. Director Richard Donner is planning to reunite the original cast for a sequel to the cult classic film because Goonies never say die and all that.
In what had become an inevitability at this point with the insanely rising box office numbers, Disney's smash hit animated film 'Frozen' has now become the highest grossing animated film of all time, usurping former crown holder 'Toy Story 3,' which held the title since 2010. And judging by these numbers and the love for the film, it doesn't look like 'Frozen' is going to "Let It Go" so easily.
'Scarface' is being remade yet again. The film, which began life on the screen in 1932 as a classic gangster story was remade by Brian De Palma in the 1983 film starring Al Pacino as a Cuban refugee who goes from street dealer to drug kingpin. Universal, which already has a script for the contemporary remake, has found a director: Pablo Larrain, a Chilean director, most recently known for his critically acclaimed 2012 film, 'No.'
We've been keeping you guys updated on the status of a new Pee-wee Herman movie courtesy of Pee-wee star and creator Paul Reubens over the course of the last couple of years, but now producer Judd Apatow brings us an update himself. While it was previously rumored that Apatow would direct the new film, the funny guy's been keeping busy, but he assures us that the new Pee-wee project is definitely still in the works -- with a script and everything!
Finally, after months of development, J.J. Abrams has confirmed that he's ready to move on to the next stage: this weekend at the Television Critics Association, the director confirmed that the script has been completed for 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' and that the production is now in "deep prep" on the upcoming film, which is scheduled for a December, 2015 release. Well that's a relief.
Dave Madden, beloved star of the classic television series 'The Partridge Family,' has passed away at the age of 83. Madden played the role of the family's oft put-upon band manager Reuben Kincaid, who often was annoyed by the shenanigans of young Danny, played by former child star Danny Bonaduce. Madden was also the star of the '70s show 'Laugh-In.'
It brings us great sadness to report this news on the first day of the New Year -- James Avery, the beloved actor who portrayed Uncle Phil on the hit '90s sitcom 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,' has passed away at the age of 68. Avery, who passed away late last night in Los Angeles, was an actor known for his warmth, and continued to appear on many TV shows over the years after 'Fresh Prince' concluded.
Following the premiere of the first official trailer for Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah,' we're starting to see alternate versions -- like this international trailer -- pop up. The one above features some new footage sprinkled throughout stuff we've previously seen before. What we have seen already is stunning, and the new imagery is intriguing, like an earlier shot of violence and a couple of additional wide shots of large groups of people descending on the ark itself.
Looking for stocking stuffers or last minute gift ideas this holiday season? Or maybe you're just looking to splurge on a gift for yourself -- there's no shame in that! There's plenty of great movies heading to DVD and Blu-ray this December, ranging from huge hits to indie favorites and everything in between. Read on for our guide what's headed to home media this month!
Earlier today, 'Man of Steel' director Zack Snyder and star Amy Adams sat down with Kevin Smith at a special fan event for the upcoming Blu-ray release, with Henry Cavill telecasting in from London -- but the making of that film wasn't all they discussed. Snyder dropped a few hints about his sequel, working under the tentative title 'Batman vs. Superman,' which, obviously features the caped crusader going up against the Man of Steel himself.
