Mark Wahlberg Shooter TV show

Normally, movies that don’t make $100 million worldwide don’t get sequels. And they definitely don’t get TV shows. But Mark Wahlberg isn’t your typical actor/producer. He’s now teamed up with Paramount TV to bring his 2007 film, Shooter, to TNT as a regular series.

The film, which itself was based on the novel Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter, follows a decorated but retired military sniper who takes one last job. However, he’s framed for murder on the job and goes on the run. Read more about the Shooter TV show below. Read More »

Walt before Mickey

We’ve been waiting years for a Walt Disney biopic, and we might have to wait a bit longer for a real good one, but Juilliard graduate Khoa Le has made an independent film titled Walt before Mickey which chronicles the early days of the legend’s animation career. The acting is sometimes a bit over the top and the writing is “melodramatic” at best (it feels like a Lifetime television movie event kinda thing), but this film tries to bring the truth to the screen — based on Timothy Susanin’s 2011 book Walt before Mickey: Disney’s Early Years, 1919-1928. The Walt Disney biopic stars American Pie star Thomas Ian Nicholas as older Walt, Napoleon Dynamite star Jon Heder as his brother Roy, Disney alum David Henrie plays an animator and Full House‘s Jodie Sweetin is Charlotte Disney. Watch the Walt Before Mickey trailer embedded after the jump.

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in Serena

For a while there, it seemed like you couldn’t get a movie made without Bradley Cooper or Jennifer Lawrence getting involved, often at the same time. The pair shot three films together in about two years: David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, and Susanne Bier‘s Serena.

The first two of those have already opened to great acclaim, but the third remained stuck in post-production for quite a long time. It’s only now making its way to theaters, and not even U.S. theaters at that. Thankfully, it looks worth the wait. The first Serena trailer has just hit, and you can check it out after the jump.

rant movie

Chuck Palahniuk is one of those authors who is fortunate enough  to sell the rights to seemingly every book he’s ever written. In some cases, like with Fight Club, that works out. In other cases, the resulting film may be less successful (say, maybe, Choke) and most of the time, the films simply never come together. So when a new book of his is optioned, it’s easy not to immediately get excited.

Still, if that option is by a very motivated and talented person, that’s definitely a positive factor. That’s what happening now. James Franco, the popular actor and burgeoning director, has reportedly purchased the rights to Palahniuk’s 2008 novel, Rant. Rant is a fictionalized oral history of a crazed serial killer in the future. Read more about the Rant movie below. Read More »
