Of all the information that came out of the infamous Sony hack a couple years ago, one of the most intriguing and ridiculous things we found out was Sony was tossing around the possibility of crossing over the 21 Jump Street franchise with Men in Black. After we let that thought simmer for a while, that actually sounded like a pretty brilliant idea. Since then, the film has been dubbed MiB 23 and recruited The Muppets director James Bobin to be at the helm. But apparently, the project is still far from a sure thing according to Jonah Hill.

It’s surely just a matter of time before Disney gets around to making a live-action remake of its animated classic The Little Mermaid, but in the meantime they’re diving headfirst into a different project about fish people. Disney’s remake of Splash has just caught Channing Tatum and Jillian Bell, who previously co-starred in 22 Jump Street. But there’s a twist: Tatum will be the one playing the mermaid, and Bell will be the human. Read More »
We may not see Michael “Magic Mike” Lane ever again. News had been mostly quiet — too quiet — regarding Magic Mike 3 since XXL tore theaters up last summer. The sequel didn’t sell as many tickets as the first film did, but it performed decently enough, and the diehard Magic Mike fans responded well to the delightful road trip movie. So, with that success in mind, the question is: Why aren’t we going to see Magic Mike XXXL or a Magic Mike 3D? Well, we’re technically going to see a Magic Mike 3, just not in theaters.
Below, Channing Tatum provides an unfortunate Magic Mike 3 update.

Well, now it’s official: Steven Soderbergh is indeed coming out of retirement. Back in February, the “rumor” was that Soderbergh would return to moviemaking with Logan Lucky, but Soderbergh went on to dismiss the story on his always entertaining Twitter feed. However, the project is both real and moving forward, as a few big actors have just signed up for the heist film.
Learn more about the Logan Lucky cast below.

Sadly, we’ve yet to hear much news regarding a potential Magic Mike XXXL. Despite the fact Magic Mike XXL was slightly less successful than its predecessor at the box-office, it was every bit as entertaining as Steven Soderbergh’s film. If for some awful reason we never see if Mike makes it big as a custom furniture designer, then at least we have Magic Mike Live to look forward to, which will make its debut in Las Vegas next year.
Learn more about Magic Mike live below.

The cast of the sequel to last year’s hit spy action adventure Kingsman: The Secret Service got a little more interesting this week, with hopes of music legend Elton John joining the project in some capacity. But now some American flair is being added to the mix to spice things up a bit.
21 Jump Street and Magic Mike star Channing Tatum has just announced that he has joined the cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle. And when you see the teaser poster he revealed on Twitter and consider what Matthew Vaughn has said about the sequel before, we’re pretty sure we know how Channing Tatum joining Kingsman 2 is going to play out.

X-Men fans have been waiting for years for Gambit to strike out on his own solo adventure, but they may have to stay patient just a little while longer. Channing Tatum‘s superhero adventure is in rewrites right now, and won’t shoot until late 2016. If you’ve mainly been looking forward to Gambit because of director Doug Liman‘s involvement, though, there’s a silver lining to this delay. The schedule shift has freed Liman up to direct The Wall, Amazon Studios’ first-ever original movie. Read More »

One of the many themes floating around in the Coen brothers’ Hail Caesar! is the transcendent power of cinema — the way a really good film can mesmerize, delight, make all your troubles melt away, and awe you with its artistry. And few scenes in the film make a better case for it than the snippet we get to see of “No Dames,” an Anchors Aweigh-style musical number starring the Gene Kelly-esque Burt Gurney, played by Channing Tatum.
It’s a fantastic showcase for Tatum’s talents as a song-and-dance man, and it’ll leave you wishing we could get an actual, full-length musical with him. Now, the good news is that we will. And the even better news is that it’ll also star Joseph Gordon-Levitt, another actor who’s demonstrated some serious moves in the past. Read More »

2015 officially ends in a couple of days, but it’s hard to mind too much when 2016 looks so promising. For starters, next year brings Hail, Caesar!, the Coen Brothers‘ first film since 2013’s superb Inside Llewyn Davis. The directors’ names alone were enough to put this one on our radar, but the first trailer catapulted it right to the top of our most-anticipated lists.
Set during the Golden Age of Hollywood, the star-studded comedy follows studio fixer Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) over the course of one very busy day. When movie star Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) is kidnapped by a mysterious organization calling itself The Future, it falls on Eddie to rescue him. The first Hail, Caesar! poster and a new Hail, Caesar! TV spot have just been released, and you can see them both after the jump. Read More »
