Luke Wilson

Luke Wilson is going all the way to the top of the NFL. He’s in talks to play Roger Goodell, who’s been in the headlines a lot lately for his terrible handling of the Ray Rice domestic violence scandal. But this isn’t about that, it’s about a different NFL scandal. Wilson will play Goodell in Sony’s untitled concussion movie, joining Will Smith as the doctor who blew the whistle on traumatic brain injuries in football.

Ron Howard’s ‘Inferno’ Delayed to 2016

Inferno delayed

Ron Howard just felt a Force push. Howard is prepping Inferno for an April 2015 shoot; it will be his third film based on a Dan Brown novel. Tom Hanks will once again star as Professor Robert Langdon in the adaptation of Brown’s 2013 novel. But the film was scheduled to be released in December 2015.

And while there is no doubt that an audience made up of all your parents and extended family will show up for Inferno, Sony doesn’t want to compete with Star Wars Episode VII, which is scheduled to be released on the same day Inferno was planning to hit theaters. And so Sony has wisely decided to push the film into 2016. Read More »

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs TV series

DHX Media, the company behind the Paddington film and in-development TV re-do of Inspector Gadget, is now working with Sony Animation to create a Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs TV series. The show will consist of 22-minute CG-animated episodes that follow at least the basic concept of the two films. But there’s mention of this being a “re-imagined” version of the two-film series, so things might be changed for the TV incarnation.  Read More »

Paul Feig Ghostbusters

Paul Feig (Freaks & Geeks, Bridesmaids) is really making the new Ghostbusters film, and it won’t be a sequel featuring the classic cast. Instead, he’s got the idea to reboot the story entirely, focusing on a new and likely all-female team of Ghostbusters. The Heat screenwriter Katie Dippold is co-writing, and they’re already at work putting together a script.

There are still many questions about this new Paul Feig Ghostbusters. (Not least is “what will it be called?” That isn’t answered, but given the reboot angle, Ghostbusters III doesn’t seem appropriate.)  The director has given a big interview in which he at least addresses many of those questions, even when he can’t give outright answers. One thing that should be of interest is that Feig really emphasizes the idea of making something that is scary as much as it is funny.  Read More »

new Ghostbusters movie

The path to the new Ghostbusters movie has been long and full of detours. Long planned as Ghostbusters 3, with the original team meant to return in some fashion, the sequel is now more like a reboot.

Paul Feig, director of Bridesmaids and The Heat among others, came on to direct earlier this year. Feig’s plan is to have a female team of Ghostbusters band together to, well, do the same thing that the previous team did. Now Feig has turned to someone he has successfully worked with in the past. The Heat screenwriter Katie Dippold will write the new Ghostbusters movie with Feig.

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Header

What’s the deal with Spider-Man? It’s the question fans have been asking all summer. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a major disappointment in almost all respects; following its debut grand plans to continue the franchise were completely reshuffled. As it officially stands right now, Drew Goddard‘s Sinister Six film will be out in 2016 and The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will follow in 2018. There will also be a female-focused film sandwiched somewhere in the middle. That’s all official via Sony.

However the latest rumors suggest some, if not all of that might not be true anymore. Yesterday, the very reputable Drew McWeeny at Hitfix said he’d heard rumblings Sony was talking to Marvel Studios about working out some kind of deal for a crossover. Then today, the equally reputable Devin Faraci at Badass Digest said that’s just one of the possibilities he’s heard Sony is considering with the characters. The others are a “soft reboot” with the Sinister Six, completely shelving the character for a few years, and canceling the planned Venom movie. Read more about these Spider-Man franchise rumors below. Read More »
