Over a year ago, we learned that Warner Bros. Pictures was going to reboot the Scooby-Doo film franchise with a new animated take on Mystery Incorporated and their scaredy-dog named Scooby-Doo. At the time, live-action Scooby-Doo producers Charles Roven and Richard Suckle were on board with Tony Cervone of the 2010 animated series Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated attached to direct. Now the animation director will be getting some help from a live-action comedy director.
Dax Shepard, who previously was at the helm of the sparsely seen Hit & Run and the forthcoming big screen adaptation of the TV series CHiPs, will co-direct the animated Scooby-Doo movie with Tony Cervone. Find out more below. Read More »
Just when you thought every possible TV show for Hollywood to turn into a movie had been exhausted, along comes this news. We all know the long-running FOX TV show COPS, if only for the catchy theme song that goes, “Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do when they come for you?” The documentary show follows police officers as they pursue and apprehend small time criminals. Usually their collars are people illegally using or selling drugs, and sometimes those people try to run. And apparently that’s compelling enough to be turned into a feature film, and there’s even a director on board.

Take heart, Community fans — Dan Harmon isn’t giving up on the dream of #SixSeasonsAndAMovie. He’s just not sure when he’ll be able to make it come true. For starters, there’s the paradoxical problem of this cast being too popular: everyone in that cast has moved on to new shows and movies, so it’s unclear when they’d have time to make a Community movie even if they wanted to. Still, he says, “it’ll happen.” Get your latest Community movie update below. Read More »
I wasn’t a fan of the Power Rangers television series when it aired — maybe I was a year or two too old for it, or maybe I was already over my Voltron days. Whatever the case, I haven’t found excitement for the upcoming Power Rangers movie. And then last month Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston signed on to the film as Zordon, a character that appeared as a giant floating head in a tube in the TV series. I thought, that’s interesting. And then a teaser poster for the film was released (you can see it right after the jump), which was not what I expected from this particular franchise. Okay, so maybe I am a little curious now to see what the Power Rangers movie will be.
And now we have Bryan Cranston talking about how the movie is wildly different from the 1990s television series, comparing more to a Dark Knight-style reimagining of the franchise.

Our friends across the pond and down under will get to see Ricky Gervais back as the former Wernham Hogg Paper Company boss David Brent on the big screen in August. In a new mockumentary feature film, David Brent follows his dreams of being a rock star while working a new job as a cleaning products sales rep. David Brent: Life on the Road not only brings back flares of The Office, but also sees Brent hitting the road for a tour in his home country, complete with original music written by the inappropriate and awkward character himself.
Now you can get a taste of one of his tunes with a David Brent music video for a song called “Gyspy Lady.” It’s a love song as only David Brent can deliver about how he fell in love with some kind of gypsy, though he can’t remember her name. Watch below. Read More »
Will Smith was once the king of the summer. After hits like Independence Day and Men in Black made huge bank during blockbuster season, So Warner Bros. thought they could count on rack up some cash for the studio with a film adaptation of the classic TV show Wild Wild West, and they weren’t entirely wrong.
Wild Wild West raked in $222 million worldwide on a budget of $170 million, but it was obliterated by critics, and there’s probably been no moment in time where someone has unironically wanted to watch Wild Wild West at home. One of the worst summer blockbusters ever, Wild Wild West is an absolute nightmare, and Will Smith knew it.
After 17 years, Will Smith seems to be sorry for convincing audiences to go see a movie that featured Kenneth Branagh with some of the most ridiculous facial hair ever, Kevin Kline in drag, and a giant mechanical spider. Find out why Will Smith regrets Wild Wild West and what ultimately made him decide never to make a movie for the same reasons ever again. Read More »
A new big screen version of Masters of the Universe has been in the works for years with various writers penning new drafts, but no version getting anywhere near getting in front of the camera.

Kellan Lutz, who found fame with a supporting role in The Twilight Saga and has followed it up with a series of awful movies like The Legend of Hercules, recently revealed that he met with McG, specifically about the Masters of the Universe movie. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

A Battlestar Galactica movie has been in on-again, off-again development for years, and a few months ago we heard Universal still wasn’t ready to give up. We’ll see whether this latest incarnation of the project gets any further than the earlier ones did, but as of this week it is one step closer to liftoff. Westworld scribe Lisa Joy has just been set to pen the adaptation, and word is the studio is trying to get The Hunger Games‘ Francis Lawrence on board to direct. Read More »

The characters of Archer have only changed so much over the years. If they ever truly evolved as people, after all, they’d no longer be the unrepentant assholes we’ve come to love. But the show itself has morphed a couple of times, first into a crime show in season 5 and then into a P.I. series in season 7. Might Archer make an even bigger leap someday? Like into the world of live-action films, perhaps?
Executive producer Matt Thompson isn’t ruling out a possible Archer movie, revealing that he and series creator Adam Reed “have definitely talked about it.” And while they’ve yet to make up their mind about whether this (purely theoretical, at this point) movie would be animated or live-action, they know exactly who they’d want playing Sterling Archer if they go the latter route: Mad Men star Jon Hamm.

Deadwood is one of the many HBO shows that had its life cut too short. Ever since the series was canceled, there have been talks of creator David Milch wrapping the series up with a film. One year a Deadwood movie appears likely, the next year it’s reported as dead. A few months ago, though, HBO confirmed “it’s going to happen,” and they’re ready when Milch is.
Below, check out the latest Deadwood movie update from actor Ian McShane.
