Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly To Re-Unite For Sherlock Holmes Movie

Remember way back in 2008, right around the time that the first of Guy Ritchie’s action movie takes on Arthur Conan Doyle‘s Sherlock Holmes character was on the way starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, when there was a second more comedic Sherlock project in the works starring Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby co-stars Sacha Baron Cohen and Will Ferrell as Holmes and Watson?

The screenplay for the movie was written by Etan Cohen, but the movie didn’t materialize at the time. Now comes word that the project, titled Holmes & Watson, is up and moving again. This time around Ferrell is set to play Holmes instead of Watson and another one of his Talladega Nights co-stars, John C. Reilly, who also starred with Ferrell in Step Brothers, is taking on the role of Watson.

Mandrake the Magician

It’s being reported that Sacha Baron Cohen, star of Borat, The Brothers Grimsby, and Alice Through the Looking Glass, is set to star in Mandrake the Magician. The movie will be directed by Get Hard writer and director Etan Cohen, who has also written episodes of Beavis and Butt-Head and King of the Hill, and worked on the screenplays for Idiocracy, Tropic Thunder, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, and Men in Black 3.

The movie is based on the comic strip of the same name created by Lee Falk during the Great Depression, and was first published back in 1934. It follows a mustached magician who uses hypnotism and illusion powers to fight crime.

‘Lego Movie’ Directors In Talks For ‘Ghostbusters 3’

Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters 3, the sequel no one really wants to happen, is being made whether we like it or not. But as we reported yesterday it won’t have its original director at the helm. With Ivan Reitman departing the big chair to take on a producer’s role on the long-gestating supernatural comedy rebootquel, the job of directing GB3 will doubtlessly be filled by a younger director. Or if the latest rumors are based in truth, it will get two directors.

According to industry insider Nikki Finke, the latest candidates to direct Ghostbusters 3 are none other than the unbeatable team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller. With a string of surprise live-action and animated blockbusters like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street, and most recently The Lego Movie to their credit, these guys are two of the hottest filmmakers working today.

Ghostbusters

At the time it looked like Ghostbusters 3 wasn’t even going to happen. Developmental problems continually stalled the project, and the franchise’s biggest and most important piece, Bill Murray, wasn’t even interested, in reprising his role.

But there was some news that lead us to believe that this project wasn’t completely dead. Earlier this year Etan Cohen was brought in to rewrite the script. That was followed by Dan Aykroyd saying that filming would begin early next year.

Dan Aykroyd Wasn’t Lying; ‘Ghostbusters 3’ Brings In Etan Cohen To Rewrite Script

Ghostbusters

No matter how hard we try, we can’t get away from any news about Ghostbusters 3. A couple of weeks back Ghostbusters star we reported that Dan Aykroyd was saying that they were bringing in a new writer for the film. Now we didn’t know if this was lip service to an always nagging question or if it was true. And if it was true, would they start with a fresh story or would they use the script written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.

Now we can confirm a couple of things. First, yes, they are bringing in a new writer. Men In Black III and Tropic Thunder scribe Etan Cohen (not to be confused with Ethan Coen) has been brought in to do a couple of rewrites on the script that Eisenberg and Stupnitsky wrote back in 2008.

Etan Cohen

The Black List is a special list of the best screenplays that weren’t turned into movies each year. On the 2010 list, a screenplay by writers Carrie Evans and Emi Mochizuki titled Boy Scouts vs. Zombies was selected, and now it’s finally making its way to the Big Screen.

Etan Cohen, the popular comedy screenwriter behind such titles as Mike Judge’s Idiocracy, Tropic Thunder, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, and the upcoming Men in Black III, has entered into negotiations to make his directorial debut on the movie, and to look over a new draft of the script by Lona Williams (Drop Dead Gorgeous).

Watch Now: ‘Men In Black 3’ Gets A New Theatrical Trailer

Men in Black 3

Once upon a time (the late 1990s to be exact) Will Smith was not only the Fresh Prince, but he was also the king of the summer movie season – for two summers. Then came Wild Wild West. Ever since, Big Willie has been continuing to rack up the blockbusters while attempting to dominate different seasons that don’t involve millions of people suddenly deciding to go to the beach.

This summer, Smith is mounting an offensive to reclaim his summer movie king throne with the belated sequel Men in Black 3. Today, a full theatrical trailer has been released. You can watch it here below.

UPDATED! Will ‘Men In Black 3’ Add Josh Brolin To The Team?

Men in Black

UPDATE: It looks like Mr. Brolin would indeed be playing a younger version of Jones’ K, with Will Smith’s J heading back in time somehow. To be fair, anything can work if handled properly, but at the moment, I for one am not a fan of this. Time travel is a gimmick and people don’t enjoy it unless it’s important enough to the story and if the reason for it makes sense. We’ve never seen time travel in Men in Black, so they would have to have a really cool reason for doing it. Does this mean that Jones isn’t coming back and they just wanted to retain the character?

Hero Complex has received word that Sony is considering Josh Brolin for a role in Men in Black III. No word yet on who the No Country For Old Men and Milk star would be playing in the movie, but whispers say that he could play a new recruit that one of MiB’s finest would have to train OR that he could be a younger Tommy Lee Jones character, though this is all speculation.

Men in Black III has not officially been greenlit yet, but they did hire Etan Cohen (Idiocracy, Tropic Thunder) to get the script written. All signs so far point to Will Smith being prepped and ready to return to the franchise if the ignition is fired up, but the return of Jones is still a big question mark.

Will Ferrell’s ‘Sherlock Holmes’ Not All Silly

The Movie God   |  @   |

Ferrell & CohenEtan Cohen (Idiocracy, Tropic Thunder) spoke to MTV about Sherlock Holmes, the new movie he’s writing that will star Sacha Baron Cohen as the classic titular figure and Will Ferrell as his sidekick Dr. Watson.

This is a project that’s coming along parallel to another Sherlock Holmes project being done by Guy Ritchie and starring Robert Downey Jr. and it seemed pretty obvious that the latter would be actiony and the former would be really funny.

While Guy Ritchie’s film is being called “James Bond in 1891,” it seems that the Ferrell/Baron-Cohen movie might not be all-comedy all-the-time like we assumed.
