Emma Stone Passed on New ‘Ghostbusters’

Emma Stone ghostbusters

Fan casting for Paul Feig‘s female Ghostbusters reboot almost always included Emma Stone. Fans wanted her in the film, and Stone has proved time and time again that she has not only dramatic chops, but a spot on comic sensibility, too. Seeing her busting ghosts seemed like a no-brainer. Then, when the four main leads were announced, Stone wasn’t there. It didn’t really matter, because Feig had knocked casting out of the park with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.

Now, in a new interview, Stone reveals she was offered a role in the film but passed. Read the Emma Stone Ghostbusters quote below. Read More »

Jack Huston the Crow

Something is really giving Relativity a hard time as it tries to assemble a reboot of The Crow. The film, based on the comic series by James O’Barr which led to the 1994 film starring Brandon Lee, has been in development for years. A dizzying array of directors and actors has been attached to the project in that time. The latest in a very long line of talent departures has just taken place as intended star Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) has departed due to “scheduling issues.” Read More »

Fantastic Four tv spot

It seems like just yesterday the narrative around Fantastic Four was how bad the marketing was. Mainly, that’s because it was non-existent for so long. Since the release of the first trailer though, that’s been rapidly and happily changing. As effects shots get completed and more and more is revealed, you can feel everyone getting cautiously optimistic about what Josh Trank has done here. It’s going to take some people actually seeing the movie to finally make everyone super excited but, until then, the tables are turning.

Case in point, a brand new TV spot that debuted during the NBA Finals. It’s a lot of the same footage we’ve already seen, but there’s new stuff and – most importantly – there’s humor in here. Below, check out the new Fantastic Four TV spot. Read More »

Kindergarten Cop

Another of Arnie’s old hits is coming back to life. A remake of Kindergarten Cop is reportedly in the works, likely for a home video release. More interesting is the notion that this could pave the way for a Kindergarten Cop TV series. More details on the Kindergarten Cop remake after the jump.  Read More »

Flight of the Navigator remake

In November 2012, it was revealed that director Colin Trevorrow had been hired by Disney to work on a new version of the 1986 film Flight of the Navigator, in which a young boy disappears, only to return home eight years later, without appearing to have aged at all.

It has been a few years since the announcement, and Trevorrow’s new film Jurassic World hits theaters this weekend. During my interview with the filmmaker I asked for a status update on the Flight of the Navigator remake, to which he has been attached alongside his Safety Not Guaranteed and Jurassic World co-writer Derek Connolly. But it sounds like the project is no longer in the works, at least not with Trevorrow involved. Find out what happened and learn about his take on the remake, after the jump.

Big Trouble in Little China

News of a beloved film being remade is rarely good news. The closest you can get, however, is something along the lines of Dwayne Johnson starring in a remake of John Carpenter‘s Big Trouble in Little China. I’m 100% behind the “Why remake a perfect movie?” argument but if it’s going to happen anyway, Johnson as the star is a major plus.

Johnson’s attitude toward the movie is an even bigger plus. In a new interview, the San Andreas star said he hopes they can be respectful to the original and even wants John Carpenter himself to come on board. Read the quotes below. Read More »

James Cameron Terminator genisys

“If you like the Terminator films, you’re going to like this movie.” That’s a director quote from James Cameron, the creator, writer and director of the two universally-praised Terminator films, The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. After Cameron parted ways with the franchise, two terrible sequels were released, ensuring that Cameron’s name was permanently attached to the phrase “good Terminator movie.”

This summer, Hollywood trying again with Terminator Genisys, a film that subverts almost everything you knew about the franchise from Cameron’s films. The creator had very little to do with the film so watching it, he says he’s came at it from a “fanboy” perspective. And with that eye, Cameron says he loved the film. He views it as the third film in the series. Watch the James Cameron Terminator Genisys quotes below. Read More »
