When The Truman Show was released in 1998 it was hardly the first time we’d seen the concept, in which a man discovers that his entire life is a television show designed to entertain the masses. Similar concepts had been explored in various sci-fi stories, but Peter Weir’s film starring Jim Carrey added a particular spin that made The Truman Show feel whole and very much its own thing. (The location, a Florida town called Seaside, helped. And Seaside still looks like that.)
Now there might be a Truman Show TV series, as Paramount seeks to exploit properties in new media. Read More »

Leaked licensing materials suggest Paramount and Hasbro are already planning a fifth Transformers movie.
While nothing is official, it makes perfect sense. Three years have passed between 2011′s Transformers: Dark of the Moon and this year’s Transformers: Age of Extinction. Reviews on the former were pretty brutal, as they have been for most of the films in the franchise, but that hasn’t stopped audiences from showing up. Each film in the series has grossed more than the previous one with the “least” successful of the series, the 2007 original, grossing over $700 million worldwide (Dark of the Moon crossed $1 billion). Which is to say, there’s little chance the June 27 release of the fourth film won’t be a massive hit and a sequel won’t follow.
Now, it seems Transformers 5 is tentatively scheduled for 2017. Read More »

The actors who play the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Jonathan Liebesman‘s new film won’t, necessarily, lend the voices to those famous turtles. Case in point, Johnny Knoxville (Jackass) has been added to voice group leader Leonardo and Tony Shalhoub (Monk) will voice master Splinter. During filming, Pete Ploszek and Danny Woodburn played the respective roles in performance capture but, apparently, their deals never guaranteed they’d provide the voices. Read more about the new Ninja Turtles Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Darren Aronofsky‘s idea for Noah originated when he was just 13-years-old, with a poem that won a United Nations poetry competition at his Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn school. Darren Aronofsky’s Noah poem was about the end of the world as seen through Noah’s eyes. Aronofsky got the idea to adapt the tale into a movie after visiting a museum exhibit while he was developing his first feature film Pi. But it wasn’t until creative differences split The Fountain star Brad Pitt weeks before shooting that Aronofsky first dabbled with the Noah story in screenplay form.
We learned all this information when I chatted with Aronofsky in 2006 — that is how long it has taken the filmmaker to secure an estimated $140 million in financing to bring the tale to the big screen. After the jump you can read 13-years-old Darren Aronofsky’s Noah poem, which ended up inspiring the movie.
