Update: Screenwriter Rhett Reese chimed in to say that there’s no truth to this story. We have kept the original post intact, mainly because it’s still a pretty handy guide to characters who could pop up in the X-Force movie.

Brian De Palma

If Jake Paltrow and Noah Baumbach’s candid and surprisingly intimate doc De Palma left you even more hungry for another Brian De Palma film, then you should be happy to hear the filmmaker will shoot Domino in the coming months. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones) and Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) are currently in talks to star in the crime thriller.

BAD MOMS

Bad Moms is a very fun and very funny movie that was also a big box office success. It’s a studio comedy with a good heart, a charismatic cast, and, sure, an overwhelming soundtrack and an unnecessary ending in which the characters board a private jet. It’s not exactly the film’s most relatable moment, or a happier ending than the scene with Amy (Mila Kunis) in the car with her kids, but it detracts little from Jon Lucas and Scott Moore‘s highly enjoyable movie.

The good times will continue with A Bad Moms Christmas, which has secured a 2017 release date and will co-star Susan Sarandon. Below, learn more about the Bad Moms sequel.

Josh Gad Playing The Penguin

Ever since news of a standalone Batman movie with Ben Affleck in the lead and behind the camera was announced, a close eye has been paid to every facet of development. Every time Ben Affleck had an interview, he was asked about the state of the project, and depending on his mood, the project either sounded like it was on sure footing, or it was on shaky ground. Then the Batman v Superman star removed himself from the director’s chair, and fans got worried.

Since then, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Cloverfield director Matt Reeves has stepped up to take his place, and the script is getting a complete overhaul. In fact, so many changes were happening behind the scenes that Joe Manganiello wasn’t even sure that he would end up playing Deathstroke in the movie as he was originally hired to do. However, now we have an inkling of one new cast member and character who may be involved with The Batman.

Evidence has been presented that makes us think Josh Gad may be playing The Penguin in the first solo outing for the grizzled Batman of the DC Extended Universe.  Read More »

Mike Myers Hosting The Gong Show as Tommy Maitland - Austin Powers

In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a remake of the classic 1970s amateur talent contest TV series The Gong Show coming to ABC in June. The show featured contestants displaying odd, questionable talents in front of a panel of celebrity judges who had the power to hit a gong that would end the performance before it was even over, indicating that they had seen enough.

Will Arnett and his Electric Avenue production banner are behind the show, but it’s the recently announced host that is turning some heads, because even though the name is not a recognizable one, the person who is actually doing the hosting is someone you’re definitely familiar with. It’s former Saturday Night Live star Mike Myers playing a fictional British comedian named Tommy Maitland, complete with prosthetic make-up enhancements, a fake background and everything.

Kevin Hart - The Great Outdoors Remake

John Hughes was a beloved, respected filmmaker known for writing and directing classics such as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club and more. But there are plenty of movies that he scripted, only to have someone else direct them. Movies such as Mr. Mom, Home Alone and more had scripts from John Hughes, and now one of those scripts is getting the remake treatment.

The Great Outdoors from 1988 followed Chet and Connie Ripley (John Candy and Stephanie Faracy) and their two kids who were looking forward to a nice, relaxing weekend at a Wisconsin cabin away from the hustle and bustle of Chicago, but find their vacation interrupted by the arrival of Connie’s obnoxious brother-in-law Roman (Dan Aykroyd), his wife Kate (Annette Bening) and their two daughters. Now Universal has set Kevin Hart to start in a remake of the comedy.
