The years-long quest to make a new Fletch movie took a step forward this week as the property landed at Relativity Studios after Warner Bros. decided to let it go.

Masterminds

Zach Galifianakis seems like a smart guy. Most of the characters he plays in the movies do not. So when he stars in a movie called Masterminds, you can probably guess that the title is being a bit sarcastic.

Directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite), Masterminds is an action-comedy based on the true story of the 1997 Loomis Fargo heist. Galifianakis’ David Ghantt makes off with $17 million, making this the largest cash robbery in the U.S. at the time.

Now his challenge is trying to get away with it — and that task seems easier said than done once you see his motley crew of associates including Kristen WiigOwen Wilson, and Jason Sudeikis. Check out the first Masterminds trailer after the jump.

Jack Huston Now in Talks to Lead ‘The Crow’

Jack Huston the Crow

The remake of The Crow has turned into a revolving door for talent, with a parade of writers, directors, and actors being attached to the film in various capacities before falling off again. Most recently, F. Javier Gutiérrez was going to direct, with Luke Evans starring. But Gutiérrez fell away, and Corin Hardy signed on to direct. Not long afterwards Luke Evans also moved on, due in part to the change in scheduling and story approach that came with the director change.

Now Jack Huston, perhaps best known for his role as a scarred assassin on Boardwalk Empire, is in early talks to star. Read More »
