As with so many other things in show business, it turns out, it comes down to money. Hit the jump to read the Keanu Reeves Bill and Ted 3 update.

SNL Group Hopper

2014 has brought us no fewer than three major dystopian YA adventures (Divergent, The Giver, and The Maze Runner), with one more (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1) still on the way. That adds up to about eight hours of watching fake teenagers run around uncovering conspiracies.

So why not save yourself some time and watch Saturday Night Live‘s The Group Hopper, which essentially mashes up all four of those and then some? It even includes a weird Effie Trinket / President Snow combination, played by SNL alum Bill Hader. Watch the SNL Group Hopper “trailer” after the jump.

Uncle Buck

TV networks may want to start checking with filmmakers before rushing ahead to remake their works. Earlier this week, a Say Anything… TV series was announced and then swiftly scrapped when Say Anything… movie director Cameron Crowe objected loudly and publicly. Now it’s possible ABC’s planned Uncle Buck reboot could meet the same fate.

While neither director John Hughes nor star John Candy are alive to offer their opinions on the project, their families are speaking up on their behalf. And long story short, they are not at all happy. Hit the jump to read their comments.

Bill Murray Howard Stern

Howard Stern has built a career out of getting people to talk, and this week he had a great hour-long conversation with Bill Murray. The actor is famous for being difficult to pin down for a role, with only an elusive 1-800 number as the means to contact him, and status as almost an urban legend who will crash your wedding or karaoke party if the spirit moves him to do so.

Murray is far more restrained and thoughtful in conversation than his public image might suggest, and this talk with Stern is a wide-ranging discussion about life and work. Murray goes into his days on Saturday Night Live, his unorthodox working methods, his approach to fame and living partially in the public eye, and many other topics. You can listen to the full Bill Murray Howard Stern interview below. Read More »

Ernie Hudson female Ghostbusters

Bill Murray has already come out in favor of the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, but his former co-star Ernie Hudson isn’t quite so convinced. In fact, he thinks it’s “wrong” and that the fans won’t want it. But hey, on the bright side, he’s not completely ruling out the possibility that women Ghostbusters could be funny or “at least sexy.”

Joe Dirt 2

The digital streaming revolution of Amazon and Netflix was expected to combat Hollywood’s sequel/reboot/adaptation overload with new original and interesting tv shows and films. And while that has happened for the most part, we must remember that when a big Hollywood studio is behind it we’ll eventually get more of the same. So it should be no surprise that the Sony-owned digital streaming service Crackle is getting into the game announcing a movie sequel — but was it a sequel anyone was even asking for?

Crackle has announced that they have signed David Spade to reprise his role as Joe Dirt in the yet-to-be-subtitled sequel Joe Dirt 2. The announcement comes a week after Happy Madison (also involved in Dirt 2) announced a deal with Netflix which would see four Adam Sandler original films on the streaming service.

A Merry Friggin Christmas

When Robin Williams passed away in August, he left four unreleased films behind. One of those was A Merry Friggin’ Christmas, a holiday comedy starring Williams and Joel McHale.

As a performer, Williams could play anything from Patch Adams to The Angriest Man in Brooklyn. Mitch, his character in A Merry Friggin’ Christmas, seems to fall toward the latter end of the spectrum. He’s so unpleasant, in fact, that his son Boyd (McHale) has been actively avoiding him for years. But a series of events leads to the pair spending hours together on a frantic journey to save the holiday for Boyd’s son. Hit the jump to see the A Merry Friggin Christmas trailer. Read More »

Amazon Renews ‘Transparent’

Transparent renew

Amazon first started releasing original series last year, but it wasn’t until this fall’s Transparent that they had a real smash hit. The dramedy debuted to great critical acclaim, and attracted enough viewers to “smash Prime Instant Video records.” And so, because Amazon is not stupid, it’s going back for more. The company has just re-upped Transparent for a second season to premiere in 2015.

Hit the jump for more details on the Transparent renewal.  Read More »
