For years, director Robert Zemeckis has conveyed an interest in making a sequel to his 1988 smash, Who Framed Roger Rabbit? At times, it even sounds like it’s getting close. Before (or if) that ever happens though, an actual sequel is coming and it’s coming later this year.

Gary K. Wolf, the creator of Roger Rabbit, will be releasing a new Roger Rabbit eBook on November 29. It’s called Who Wacked Roger Rabbit? Read More »

TODAY is the day, Del Rey’s highly anticipated The Making of Return of the Jedi is now in stores. Amazon is still offering 40% off, but I’m not sure how long that price will stay. I own every book in this collection, and every single one of them is worth the price of admission. If you’re a Star Wars fan, buy it! If you know a Star Wars fan, this is the perfect gift! I’ve included some of the photo previews that have been released after the jump, alongside a short video trailer.

Disaster Artist 3

In Tommy Wiseau‘s comedy of errors The Room, he regularly greets his friend with a loud, disingenuous and blandly hilarious line: “Hi Mark!” Next week in Los Angeles, those two words are sure to be on everyone’s lips because Mark himself, actor and author Greg Sestero, is finally releasing The Disaster Artist, a book detailing production of the film, one of the worst cult classics of all time.

Tuesday October 1 at the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles, fans can see a behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of The Room, followed by a Q&A and book signing with Sestero. Plus, the first 100 people to purchase the book get some awesome limited edition art by Alex Pardee. Below, get more information on the event and see additional posters. Read More »

M. Night Shyamalan

M. Night Shyamalan‘s career was originally built on his ability to surprise the audience, and his latest release may be his most unexpected yet. Yes, it’s something even more out-there than a ’90s teen romcom.

Shyamalan has written a new book about public education reform, titled I Got Schooled: The Unlikely Story of How a Moonlighting Movie Maker Learned the Five Keys to Closing America’s Education Gap. Although it seems an unlikely subject for the Sixth Sense director to tackle, his interest in it stems from an experience he had as a filmmaker. More on how the book came to be after the jump.

James Cameron is sending mixed messages today. First up, the award-winning filmmakers says he fully expects all future entertainment to be in 3D. Then, a few hours later, he reveals he’s hired noted sci-fi writer Steven Charles Gould to write four standalone Avatar novels that’ll expand on the stories Cameron will tell in his three sequels, currently scheduled for 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Ron Burgundy’s Memoir to Hit Shelves This Fall

Anchorman Ron Burgundy

As he would be only too happy to tell you, Ron Burgundy is kind of a big deal. It’s not just anyone who can boast of having survived a bear pit, a news anchor melee, and a glass cage of emotion. And that’s just in the first film. In the sequel, we’ll see him tackle marriage, diversity, and the rise of the 24-hour news cycle.

Naturally, a man that fascinating needs to put out a memoir, and this fall he’ll do just that. Random House’s Crown Archetype imprint has announced that they will publish his autobiography Let Me Off at the Top! My Classy Life and Other Musings a few weeks before the December opening of Anchorman: The Legend Continues. More details on this no doubt brilliant book after the jump.
