Sony and Escape Artists are still trying to bring an old series of 30-minute toy commercials back to the big screen, but somehow, cracking the approach to Masters of the Universe has proven difficult. A few approaches have been taken over the past decade, from Justin Marks’ well-regarded script Grayskull that fell by the wayside long ago, to other efforts that have also failed to hit the screen. (So far, at least. )
Now Christopher Yost, who wrote on Thor: The Dark World and has his hands in Thor: Ragnarok as well, is going to sharpen He-Man’s sword. Read More »

In Ghostbusters, the original film, the closest Annie Potts got to suiting up for action was putting on a come-hither look for Harold Ramis’s character Egon.
In Ghostbusters, the new film from Paul Feig, Chris Hemsworth plays a similar receptionist character to the one played by Potts in the original. This time, however, it seems like the new Ghostbuster team at least has an extra uniform laying around, as Hemsworth is suited up in a boiler suit similar to the one worn by the main cast (above). Check out the first Chris Hemsworth Ghostbusters shot below. Read More »

It’s only been five years since New Line and Platinum Dunes tried their hand at remaking Wes Craven‘s classic horror flick A Nightmare on Elm Street, the film that brought the taunting slasher Freddy Krueger into all our nightmares. But in Hollywood years, that’s a lifetime, so it’s time for another reboot.
A new reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street is in the works at New Line Cinema again, and this one will ignore the 2010 reboot that starred Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger. Find out who will be writing the script for the A Nightmare on Elm Street reboot after the jump! Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Over the weekend, the cast of the new Ghostbusters earned some goodwill with fans by visiting the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in Boston. Photos have been making the rounds online featuring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones visiting patients and their families while wearing all their Ghostbusters gear.
Obviously, this is a very charming thing for the cast to do, and we’re happy to see these kids have some joy brought into their lives. But our interest has also been piqued by these photos because the team seems to be wearing an entirely different proton pack than the ones that director Paul Feig already revealed to us back in June.

This month has been chock full of new details about Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters. We’ve seen the new proton packs (with added specs to help cosplayers), the new Ecto-1, and a shot of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones all suited up and ready to bust ghosts, not to mention learning about a cameo from Dan Aykroyd and the character names of the new female paranormal exterminators.
But today we have an update regarding the Ghostbusters spin-off that was first reported back in March with ties to Captain America: the Winter Soldier directors Anthony & Joe Russo. At the time Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum were said to be eyed as stars of the film, but Pratt denied the rumors and Tatum’s producing partner Reid Carolin said it wasn’t happening anymore.
However, if Iron Man 3 writer Drew Pearce is to be believed, then the Ghostbusters spin-off may still happen. Find out more below! Read More »

New Line’s Shaft reboot is moving forward with help from, of all places, ABC’s Wednesday night sitcom block. Black-ish creator Kenya Barris and The Goldbergs writer/exec producer Alex Barnow have been tapped to write the latest take on blaxploitation classic.
Whereas the original Shaft was a gritty thriller, the new film is envisioned as an action-comedy. Not surprisingly, not everyone is happy about this change in tone. One vocal opponent is current Shaft comic book writer David F. Walker, who has a message for New Line Cinema: “Fuck you!” More about the Shaft reboot writers after the jump. Read More »
Most people haven’t had a chance to see The Witch at this point; A24 hasn’t even released a trailer yet, so no one is familiar with the film and its story of a 17th Century New England family which is beset by black magic.
Robert Eggers, a former production designer, wrote and directed The Witch, which made waves at Sundance this year thanks to its excellent construction, and the strange scares it offers. Egger’s background in the art department is evident in every frame of The Witch, which is startlingly period-accurate, wonderfully detailed, and immersively whole.
That background also makes Eggers a very interesting choice for the Nosferatu remake that is now in development at Jeff Robinov’s new outfit Studio 8. Read More »
