Super troopers 2 release

“The time is meow.” That’s what the guys from Broken Lizard have to say about Super Troopers 2. After years of teasing fans and assuring them the film is on the way, the sequel is finally coming. 20th Century Fox has agreed to distribute the film but they need to see that the fans care. To show that fan support, Broken Lizard has started a Super Troopers 2 Indiegogo page hoping to raise at least $2 million. If it doesn’t raise $2 million, the film won’t happen. If they raise more, they’ll do bigger stuff in the movie. The hope is to shoot this summer and release in early 2016.

Below, read more about the Super Troopers 2 release and Indiegogo.

UPDATED: The initial $2 million was reached in a single day. This movie is happening. Now it’s just about how big the movie can get. Read more below. Read More »

Billion Brick Race

Warner Bros. is Lego crazy. The studio did so well with The Lego Movie that a sequel has been set, and that film’s version of Batman is being spun off into his own movie. Plus there’s the Lego Ninjago movie already set for release in 2016. Now Warners is developing yet another Lego spin-off movie, called Billion Brick Race.

We don’t know the plot of the film, but it sounds like a Lego version of The Cannonball Run, or of The Amazing Race. But we do know that Jason Segel and Drew Pearce will write and co-direct it.  Read More »

max landis ghostbusters pitch

Max Landis isn’t writing Ghostbusters 3. Ghostbusters 3 doesn’t even exist, really. Sony is, in fact, moving head with a rebooted Ghostbusters directed by Paul Feig and are trying to do a second film in that universe, starring Channing Tatum. And while the minds behind the original franchise (Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman) have their hands on these films, each will pretend 1984’s Ghostbusters and 1989’s Ghostbusters 2 never happened.

To some fans, not seeing a satisfying return of those characters trumps any good feelings about the franchise returning. Max Landis speaks to those people. The screenwriter and director took the fake news of him writing a sequel seriously, so he actually did. He never pitched it or showed it to anyone, but instead just used it as an exercise in creating a sequel, building mythology and more.

After all that, Landis has now put his Ghostbusters 3 treatment online for anyone to read. Find out more below. Read More »

Steven Spielberg to Direct ‘Ready Player One’

Ready Player One director

The film version of Ernie Cline’s novel Ready Player One just got a huge shot of adrenaline, as it is now set to go at Warner Bros. thanks to a collaboration with Village Roadshow. It has also attracted one of the biggest talents in filmmaking. As of now, the Ready Player One director is Steven Spielberg.

The novel features a teen gamer who lives his life exploring secrets and details of a “virtual utopia” called OASIS, which features details of games and movies from decades past. He and others are all searching for an in-game easter egg which will give them control of the entire world.

And while people have wondered how this novel could possibly be faithfully adapted, given that it features references to a whole host of real-world properties, having Spielberg’s name on the film could be the answer.
