F Gary Gray

If you are looking for a big screen adaptation of a forgotten ’80s cartoon, then M.A.S.K. might be just your fix.

Paramount has been working on one for quite some time, and now they have found a new director. The Fate of the Furious director F. Gary Gray will now helm the film, which features heroes wearing, you guessed it, masks. More on the story, below.

‘Transformers’ Movie Franchise Could Be Headed For A Reboot

Transformers: The Last Knight feat Bumblebee

Never underestimate how convoluted the entire Transformers Cinematic Universe is. With each new installment, the franchise finds a way to disregard all of its rules and canon. Nothing makes sense. The only consistent thing about it was the Bayhem — explosions, sexual exploitation, racism, and the usual nonsensical material that comes with a Michael Bay film. But now that the director is out, we can hopefully look forward to something new for Transformers.

Especially when Paramount brought in a group of writers to pen up to 12 possible Transformers films. It’s still unclear if that is the number the studio is targeting. But if it is, then a possible reboot could just be the thing to help the franchise achieve Marvel Studios-like success. And that reboot may be in the works. More on the story below.

Star Wars Day May the 4th package

Greetings, and Happy Star Wars Day to you all.

Over the years, “May the 4th” has taken on a life of its own. What began as a pun on the famous Star Wars quote “May The Force be with you,” has now become a global holiday that has spilled over into non-geek sectors. Every major retailer is offering deals in honor of this observance, and even people who aren’t mega-fans of the franchise were on social media bright and early this morning to wish others a “Happy Star Wars Day.”

Hasbro Cinematic Universe

Last December, Paramount Pictures announced the development of a shared cinematic universe based on their Hasbro properties – including G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand), Micronauts, Visionairies, and ROM – similar to the one they are currently working on for their extremely lucrative Transformers franchise. The next logical step was to assemble a team of creative samurai to help them foster Hollywood’s latest attempt to one-up Marvel to the silver screen.

The studio just announced that they have put together a jaw-dropping writers’ room that includes Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon (The Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Wonder Boys) and Eisner Award-winning comic book writer Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Saga).

G.I. Joe: Retaliation - The Rock and Channing Tatum

Everyone has or wants their very own shared universe these days, trying to mimic the success that Marvel has had. But if Paramount Pictures has their way, they’ll have at least two shared universes in the coming years.

We already know that, after four movies directed by Michael Bay and a fifth on the way, Paramount is developing a Transformers shared universe with a large team of writers and plans for spinoffs, prequels, and so on. Now comes word that Paramount is developing yet another shared universe, this time bringing together five other Hasbro properties including G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand), Micronauts, Visionairies, and ROM.

‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Is Coming Soon To A Theater Near You!

Dungeons & Dragons logo

I don’t know whether to be excited or frightened, but there is a new Dungeons & Dragons movie coming to the silver screen in the near future. I mean, after all, each of the previous films have been lackluster to say the least. Other than that Wrath Of The Dragon God one, which was only kind of myeh.

Now the big deal here is budget, because it looks like Warner Bros. and Hasbro have decided to take this one a bit more seriously than the last ones. There is an entire army of fans out there that are more than willing to shell out some hard-earned cash to see the movie they (we) have all been dreaming about.

Transformers: Age of Extinction poster crop

Despite Transformers: Age of Extinction being one of the lowest grossing of all the live-action Transformer films, the franchise will be getting a fifth installment. Recent news of the franchise forming a story trust to expand for possible crossovers (though not one with G.I. Joe) would allow for endless – yet possibly mindless action-filled possibilities. We’re not really sure what to make of Transformers 5, due to the fact that development on the film has been inactive. Now we are getting word that Hasbro is eyeing Transformers 5 for a 2017 release.

Paul Feig to direct Play-Doh film

Movies based on toy brands and board games isn’t anything new. Hasbro’s Transformers, Battleship, Clue, and Ouija have all been adapted for the big screen. Last year, we saw Warner Bros launch their LEGO film franchise with The LEGO Movie, which now has a sequel and three spinoffs in the works. Now we are about to head back to the toy box as it has been announced that there will be a Play-Doh movie from 20th Century Fox film. And it will be directed by none other than Paul Feig (Bridesmaids).

Deadline reports that Fox has just sealed a deal with Hasbro for the live-action film based on the molding toy. Hasbro will produce with Chernin Entertainment and Feig’s Feigco banner.
