Briefly: A Timecop remake has been in the pipeline for the past year, with Mike Richardson, founder and president of Dark Horse Comics, as exec producer. (Dark Horse published the comic that led to the original Jean-Claude Van Damme film.) Truly motivating the reboot is Marc Shmuger, who produced 2013 films We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks and The Spectacular Now.
The original film starred Jean-Claude Van Damme as a cop in a near future in which time travel exists, and is policed by official agents. JCVD’s cop runs afoul of a politician who is abusing the time stream, and action and violence follow.
Now Shmuger has chosen writers to put Timecop on the page. Mark and Brian Gunn, writers of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, will script Timecop as “a more gritty and grounded police story [than the original] with the sci-fi in the background, though it will still have the main character on a personal journey.” That’s according to THR, which says the tone of the remake could be similar to that of Looper.
The Gunns are also scripting Journey 3, a MacGyver film, and the The Monster Squad remake.

A larger-than-life personality like Johnny Depp deserves a larger-than-life movie dad. In Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, a music legend played his father. In Through the Looking Glass, he’s going to get a theater icon.
Mark Rylance has just boarded Disney’s Alice in Wonderland sequel, joining Depp, Mia Wasikowska, Helena Bonham Carter, and Sacha Baron Cohen. James Bobin (The Muppets) is directing. More on Rylance’s role after the jump.

Gia Coppola‘s debut film Palo Alto premiered at the 2013 Telluride Film Festival and David Ehrlich called it “one of the best movies ever made about high school life in America”. I tend to disagree with Ehrlich most of the time, but even Todd McCarthy calls it “the best feature film directed by someone named Coppola in a number of years.” The filmmaker, cast (specifically Emma Roberts & James Franco), style and setting definitely have me excited to see this film. The movie is a dark drama that follows a group of teenagers whom, of course, have “a penchant for finding trouble.” Watch the second Palo Alto movie trailer embedded after the jump.

Is the old Community mantra, “six seasons and a movie,” actually going to work? the phrase was written into the second season of Community as a joke, but became a rallying cry for fans as the show struggled in ratings through the third season. Then there was the sub-par fourth season (produced without series creator Dan Harmon) and Harmon’s triumphant return with a fifth season that recaptured the show’s vibe, earned strong notes from critics, and held steady with a constant viewership. Now there’s talk of a sixth season, and it seems as if the Community movie isn’t even destined to exist only as a punchline. Read More »
This Let’s Be Cops red-band trailer makes the film out to be more of a comedy sketch than a movie. Here we see two friends, played by Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson, guys who have stalled out in their early ’30s, at a loss for outfits for a costume party. They dress as cops, and then find that they really like when people assume they really are cops. Especially when those “people” are women who might want to have sex with them, or children that can be intimidated.
And that… pretty much seems to be the movie. Sure, there’s probably also a life lesson or two and maybe something about personal growth. But this red-band trailer is all about the joke concept and nothing else. At least Keegan Michael Key shows up. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
