Charlie Kaufman How and Why

For a while there, things were looking pretty good for Charlie Kaufman‘s return to TV. FX ordered his sitcom How & Why to pilot last year, and in short order it managed to attract talents like John Hawkes, Michael Cera, Sally Hawkins, and Catherine Keener.

But now the project has hit a snag. FX is reportedly passing on the sitcom, though producers are still hopeful it’ll get picked up elsewhere. Hit the jump for the latest details.

The prospect of Amy Schumer writing and starring in a feature film is awesome. Her script Trainwreck is being directed now by Judd Apatow, with a set of co-stars that includes Bill Hader, Brie Larson, and Tilda Swinton. I’ve got no doubt that she’ll carry the role like a champ – her brutally funny show Inside Amy Schumer has been one of Comedy Central’s best new offerings, and shows more than enough to know that she could be one of the next great comedy stars. The first image has shown up from the set of Trainwreck, and you can find it below. Read More »

Drew Pearce long run

Drew Pearce had a pretty amazing 2013. He co-wrote the biggest film of the year, Iron Man 3, directed the Marvel One Shot All Hail The King, and signed on to write Mission: Impossible 5. That’s a pretty great set of resume items. Pearce’s reward? He’s getting to direct his own spec script. It’s called The Long Run and while the plot is being kept under wraps, it’s described as an “original crime action comedy.”  Read More »

Pixels Adam Sandler

After the year he’s had on Game of Thrones, it’s tough to blame Peter Dinklage for wanting to take on some lighter fare in the off season. And it doesn’t get much lighter than Pixels, a Happy Madison movie in which Kevin James plays the President.

Directed by Chris Columbus, Pixels sees classic video game characters descending upon New York City. Dinklage, Adam Sandler, and Josh Gad play the elite gamers recruited by the government to fight back, with Michelle Monaghan‘s military officer helping them out.

The first Pixels image has just been released, and it’s worth a look if only for the sight of Dinklage’s truly terrible mullet. See it after the jump.

Jack Black Goosebumps

Columbia could’ve gone any number of ways with its Goosebumps movie, with literally dozens of Goosebumps books to draw from. But it chose to go the meta route, casting Jack Black as a fictionalized version of real-life Goosebumps creator R.L. Stine and pitting him against the very monsters that made him famous.

It’s something of a change of pace for Black, who plays slobs and screw-ups more often than he does bookish types. On the other hand, the film’s goofy tone looks right up his alley. Check out the first Goosebumps images, which also feature Odeya Rush and Dylan Minnette, after the jump.

The One I Love trailer

At first glance, Sundance drama The One I Love seems ordinary in every way. Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass play a pretty typical couple whose marriage is suffering from pretty typical problems, like boredom and resentment. Then their couples counselor prescribes a romantic getaway, and things take a turn for the bizarre.

To say more would be venturing into spoiler territory, but you can at least get a sense of the off-kilter tone with the first The One I Love trailer. Watch it after the jump.

Laggies trailer

Dramas about overeducated, underemployed 20somethings in the throes of a quarterlife crisis are a dime a dozen on the indie film circuit. But Laggies seems worth a look anyway, if only because of the names attached.

Lynn Shelton (Your Sister’s Sister) directed the coming-of-age tale, which follows an aimless 28-year-old (Keira Knightley). When her anxieties about impending adulthood come to a head, she runs off to move in with a 16-year-old girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) and her single dad (Sam Rockwell). The first Laggies trailer has just arrived, and you can check it out after the jump.

Archer & Armstrong movie

A highlight of the early ’90s comics scene is moving towards the big screen, and surprisingly it isn’t a Marvel or DC title. There was a time when former Marvel and DC employees created a few new comics companies, such as Image and Valiant. It’s a Valiant title that is getting a film now, as an Archer & Armstrong movie is being developed by the current incarnation of Valiant Entertainment.

While Valiant published some series that revived old Gold Key Comics characters, Archer & Armstrong was an original title, a buddy action/comedy created by Jim Shooter, Barry Windsor-Smith and Bob Layton.

The series debuted in 1992, and was relaunched in 2012. One of the two heroes of the book is Archer, a monk with expert archery skills and a horrific family history. The other is Armstrong, an immortal who, after thousands of years on Earth, is pretty much over the whole experience, and is content to hang out as a drunk partier. Together, they tackle an ages-old conspiracy.  Read More »
