While the film, which stars Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston, was originally scheduled to hit theaters last year, it is just now starting its marketing campaign. This after the fallout of the Harvey Weinstein scandal that put The Weinstein Company into ruin. Check out the trailer below.

Divergent Poster Shailene Woodley and Theo James Header

Adaptation of YA Novels are a dime a dozen. So few of the ones that do launch find their way on the path of a sequel. How City of Bones did it is beyond me. But Summit Entertainment hopes that the adaptation of Veronica Roth‘s Divergent series is one of those to join the ranks of Harry Potter, Twilight, and The Hunger Games.

The film is set in a futuristic Chicago where all of its citizens are separated into classes based on their personality. Shailene Woodley plays Tris, a special breed of human who cannot be identified by her personality, therefore she is seen as a threat to society by the government. Hit the jump to see both the trailer and the poster.

MTV VMAs Divergent footage with Shailene Woodley

The worldwide debut of the first footage from Divergent aired tonight during the live pre-show broadcast of the MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn, NY.

Watch the footage here below.

At SDCC back in July, we got a chance to see some footage from the film, which showed Shailene Woodley‘s character, Tris, about to choose which societal faction she will belong to for life. In this newly released trailer, the footage was more focused on the fact that Tris is a “divergent,” a person who cannot be categorized into one faction, which means she’s in danger of being eradicated.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

It’s been difficult to get a film adaptation of Drake’s Fortune into production, and with Neil Burger taking himself out to direct the project, fans of the video game will have to wait a lot longer before they can see Drake seek a lost treasure. But Sony is hiring two writers who are familiar with the themes of Drake’s Fortune, which may help steer the adaptation into the right direction.

Variety reports that National Treasure scribes Marianne and Cormac Wibberley have been hired to write the script for the film. The recent hiring is a smart move as the two have had plenty of experience writing about riddles, puzzles, and ancient hidden treasures.

Originally Released: March 18, 2011

Limitless is a science fiction wolf in a sheep’s clothing of a thriller. At first glance, its twists and turns evoke a deep thriller feel, but its basis lies in the realm of sci-fi. Bradley Cooper plays Eddie Morra, a struggling author dealing with a frustrating inability to focus on his new novel, competing with an overwhelming urge for procrastination. But a chance meeting with an old acquaintance will revolutionize everything.

A new director has been chosen to bring the hit Naughty Dog video game, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, to life on the big screen.

Sony Pictures has entered into negotiations with Neil Burger to both write and direct the adaptation, which follows explorer Nathan Drake as he follows the clues left by his ancestor, Sir Francis Drake, toward a great (and dangerous) treasure.

Burger hasn’t done a ton of movies so far, but he wrote and directed the enjoyable Edward Norton and Paul Giamatti film, The Illusionist, and The Lucky Ones, which starred Tim Robbins and Rachel McAdams. Most recently he directed the Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro thriller, Limitless, but did not pen the script for that movie.

LimitlessLimitless
Directed by Neil Burger
Starring Bradley Cooper, Abbie Cornish, Andrew Howard, Johnny Whitworth, Robert De Niro
Release date: March 18, 2011

 
The unattainable, no matter what “it” is, always has the tendency to attract us. Shiny new things demand our attention, as well as power, authority, money, and freedom. All of this casts an unshakable spell on us as we fluently follow it while we strain to attain the unattainable. We are creatures of instinct built around our primitive behavior and desires, and it is only acceptable that we want more. But what may eclipse all of this is a horrible fierceness found in our hunger and urgency to attain a mark in history: to leave some evidence of our own existence in this world is what drives some men into mad oblivion. Our main character, we first see him standing on the balcony ledge of a New York City penthouse, contemplates this ancient fear that drives him to paranoia and into the abyss of avarice. Limitless, directed by Neil Burger and scripted by Leslie Dixon from the Alan Glynn novel, addresses this fear without due care, severely lacking depth and emotion.

‘Bride Of Frankenstein’ Also On Its Way To A Remake

Bride of Frankenstein

One of the more exciting remake projects in the ever-growing pile of remakes is the Guillermo del Toro remake of the classic monster movie, Frankenstein — a remake that looks to be slowly moving toward finally getting made with the announcement that del Toro regular Doug Jones is going to be playing the giant resurrected monster man (Read: Ian McKellen & Others Officially Returning In Guillermo del Toro’s ‘The Hobbit’; ‘Frankenstein’ Casting Already Begun?). Now comes news that one of the first ever spinoff/sequels in Bride of Frankenstein (another project that’s been hovering around for a long time) is also moving forward again toward a remake treatment.

The movie, from Universal and Imagine Entertainment, is currently in looking into hiring Neil Burger to both write and direct the remake. Burger is best known for his job writing and directing the beautiful Edward Norton magician movie, The Illusionist. If Burger is officially signed, he and his writing partner Dirk Wittenborn would be the latest team to try and bring the movie to the big screen. Before this latest team has been pursued, American Splendor writers Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini had a draft in place which had the Bride character brought to life in modern day New York (surely a romantic comedy starring Reese Witherspoon), and Jacob Estes, who’s working on the Spider-Man spinoff Venom, had a go as well.
