There’s a new version of The Naked Gun on the way, because of course there is. The remake will star Ed Helms and at this point that’s all we really know about it. We hope it is fairly different from the original films, because otherwise what’s the point? But if David Zucker, director of the original, is being straight in a new interview, the Naked Gun remake may be considerably different. Specifically, it might not even be quite a spoof picture.

Based on the cast list, you’d probably think Ross Katz‘s Adult Beginners was a broad comedy. The lead is Nick Kroll of Kroll Show and The League fame; co-stars include SNL‘s Bobby Moynihan, Community‘s Joel McHale, 30 Rock‘s Jane Krakowski, and comedians Mike Birbiglia and Jason Mantzoukas.
But while the Adult Beginners has some laughs, it’s really more of a gentle dramedy. Kroll plays an entrepreneur whose career is in tatters. In an effort to rebuild his life, he moves in with his sister (Rose Byrne), her husband (Bobby Cannavale), and their young son. Watch the Adult Beginners trailer after the jump. Read More »
When Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion go to a convention, they’re basically Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Which is to say, they’re extremely famous and well-known, especially in that setting. They’re now using their experience with cons to transform the odd world of conventions into a web series. It’s called Con Man and will be written, directed and star Tudyk with Fillion co-starring as well as producing. Already they have their Firefly cast members Sean Maher and Gina Torres along for the ride as well as James Gunn, Seth Green, Felicia Day and Amy Acker, just to start.
Below, watch Tudyk’s pitch video for Con Man (Yes, it’s being crowd sourced) and read more about it. Read More »

Today at Valentino’s show in Paris for Paris Fashion Week, a Zoolander reunion took place when Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson walked the runway in character as their Zoolander alter-egos Derek Zoolander and Hansel.

Paramount has announced the movie for a 2016 release; you can get that date and see some Instagram evidence of the runway presence below.

Today’s announcement of a second new Ghostbusters film, scripted by Drew Pearce, possibly directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, and with Channing Tatum anchoring a supposedly “guy-centric” cast, threw a lot of people for a loop. Sony doesn’t even have Paul Feig‘s new Ghostbusters film out yet, so wouldn’t this overshadow that upcoming movie?
But as it turns out, some details were exaggerated in that first report — reportedly, people at Sony say they don’t know where the “guy-centric” description came from — and other background stuff didn’t make it online at all. A new report says the second film would be part of a shared universe with Feig’s movie, with a third team-up film and a possible prequel all designed as part of the package. Read More »
Paul Feig’s female-centric Ghostbusters are no longer the only ‘busters on the block. Sony has just announced a new division of their company, Ghost Corps, which will take control of the franchise. Lead by Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman, the first order of business is to create a male counterpart to the Feig film. They’re eyeing the Russo Brothers to direct, Drew Pierce to write and Channing Tatum to produce and co-star. From there, Sony might do TV shows and more. Read about the Channing Tatum Ghostbusters news below. Read More »
The first teaser for HAPPYish, the new Showtime series starring Steve Coogan, was just OK. It introduced a middle-aged guy who is struggling to deal with his family and changing social structures around him and, maybe, not having such a great time with all of it. This new HAPPYish trailer is infinitely more entertaining. It indicates a lot more of the show’s moment to moment comedy, and reveals more variety in Coogan’s performance. This is the one to check out, and you can do so after the break. Read More »
