The Princess Bride

Legendary television writer Norman Lear recently renewed the overall deal he has with Sony. The deal is set to take Lear into his 100th year on this planet of ours.

Variety published a feature about the 97-year-old Lear, but it was just a small part of that feature that set the ol’ internet on fire today. In it there is a quote from Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra, who says that some “very famous people” have approached Sony with hopes of remaking the 1987 fairy tale classic The Princess Bride, which was executive produced by Lear. You can see what he had to say below.

Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit is easily one of the most memorable pieces of children literature to ever be released. Since its publication back in 1902, five subsequent books were then released between 1904 and 1912. The rest is, as they say, history. Merchandise and adaptations would soon follow, thus continuing the success of the franchise. Now, the title character is about to get the big-screen treatment from Sony Animation Pictures. A new report says The Late Late Show host James Corden, Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley, and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 star Elizabeth Debecki will star in the live-action animation hybrid of Peter Rabbit. Rose Bryne will also have a role in the film. More on the story below.

‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot With Channing Tatum, Chris Pratt May Still Happen

Ghostbusters Logo Title

Production for Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters is already in full swing, but any hopes of the male Ghostbusters film has nearly dissipated. Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt were both attached to the project, and with rumors of Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America Civil War) directing using a script written by Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation), it seemed that the reboot was going to become a reality. Then came word that the project wasn’t going to happen. Tatum’s producing partner said “we’re not doing that any more,” while Pratt said the rumor was “complete BS.” Plus the Russo brothers have their hands full with directing both parts of Avengers: Infinity War.

It may have looked like the Ghostbusters spinoff was going to hit a development stall, but Pearce has come out saying that the film may still happen. More on the story below.

The Interview Header

Seth Rogen will be making his directorial debut, alongside Evan Goldberg, for the apocalyptic comedy This is the End. In fact, Rogen’s already getting some early rave reviews from Columbia that they have given him the go ahead for another comedy project that will involve political satire.

Like some of the heavy hitting people in the business, Rogen has built a network of comedians, which he generally gravitates towards for some of his projects. So it’s not such a surprise to hear that James Franco will be starring in Rogen’s new film, The Interview.

Django Unchained Header

The films coming out in November and December almost feel like it’s summer all over again, and that’s a good thing. Wreck-It Ralph, Skyfall, Flight, The ABCs of Death, Twilight, Life Of Pi, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Zero Dark Thirty, and Les Miserables are all coming out within the next two months. Some of those are guaranteed to be blockbuster hits, while others are gunning for some awards.

But the one film that could possibly do both is Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. A new trailer has appeared online, and while we already know the gist of the film, it’s still nice to see some new footage.

Check out the trailer here below.

Mary Jane Gets A Small Part ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ But Will Lead In Third Film

Shailene Woodley Header

Shailene Woodley has been confirmed for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The Descendants star was reportedly in negotiations a few weeks ago to play Mary Jane Watson in the highly anticipated sequel, but it’s how her character will be utilized in the next movie that is turning some heads.

Almost every Spider-Man fan knows how Peter Parker went from his first love Gwen Stacy to his long-time love Mary Jane. So, while it would have been interesting to see a love triangle build in the sequel, Sony Pictures has different plans in store for the new webslinger. According to THR, Woodley would only have a small role in the sequel, which would expand in The Amazing Spider-Man 3.

Watch Now: Director Rian Johnson Secretly Introduces ‘Looper’ At Midnight Screening

Looper

Rian Johnson’s Looper opens this weekend. The film (read our review here), which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis, puts a unique twist on time travel. Most theater chains hold a midnight screening for every major film, and Johnson thought it might be fun to introduce his film at a midnight screening held at the Arclight in Hollywood. The catch is that he never told anyone in the audience that he was coming, nor did he identify himself.

Check out the hilarious video here below.

For those who may not live in the Los Angeles area, the Arclight Theater is one of the premiere theaters in Southern California. Before the start of every film, an usher comes in to introduce what you are about to watch, ensures that he will stay until the presentation is perfect, and ask you to please turn off any electronic devices.

Metal Gear Solid Header

If there were ever a video game franchise that needed to be adapted it would have to be Metal Gear Solid. Regardless of what you think of the quality of video game adapted films (most of the time they suck), studios keep churning them out, and no matter how sacred the franchise, studios see a property they like, they will turn it into a film.

But maybe things aren’t as bad as they seem. At a Metal Gear anniversary party, there was a banner that read “Metal Gear Solid Hollywood Movie” with the Columbia Pictures logo located right below it. Arad and Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima were on hand to confirm the project, where they said they “will take our time and tell the story with all the nuances, ideology, cautionary tales needed.”
