The writer/director even seems to write certain roles for particular actors. Now a copy of Quentin Tarantino’s cast wish-list for Pulp Fiction has made its way online, showing the filmmaker’s original choices for the film’s cast, from first choices to back-up/alternate choices.

As you’ve surely noticed, Disney is obsessed with turning their animated classics into new live-action movies. Just this year alone we’ve gotten word of Tim Burton directing Dumbo, Alex Ross Perry writing Winnie the Pooh, and Reese Witherspoon starring in a Tinkerbell movie, not to mention live-action takes on Mulan, Pinocchio, Prince Charming and now an Aladdin prequel called Genies. And that’s not even all of them.
But the next one hitting theaters is The Jungle Book from Elf and Iron Man director Jon Favreau. The footage that played at D23 last month blew people away, and now you can get a sneak peek of that footage in a quick tease from the movie before the full trailer arrives on Monday. Watch The Jungle Book teaser below! Read More »

Last month’s Peter Pan Live got plenty of attention, attracting some 9.1 million viewers, but it was still a step down from 2013’s The Sound of Music Live, which got 18.5 million. And according to NBC, it’s all Allison Williams and Christopher Walken‘s fault.
The network blamed the actors’ lack of star power for the ratings tumble, arguing that Carrie Underwood was what drew in audiences the year before. More on the Peter Pan Live flop after the jump. Read More »

Update: NBC has released a full length Peter Pan Live trailer. Watch it now embedded after the jump.
NBC’s Sound of Music Live! was a bit of a disaster as an actual musical production. Lead Carrie Underwood couldn’t act to save her life, and as a result the whole thing kind of fell flat. But Sound of Music Live! was an unambiguous success in terms of ratings, with 18.62 million viewers tuning in.
So NBC is trying the live musical thing again this winter with Peter Pan Live!, starring Allison Williams as the boy who never grew up and Christopher Walken as his embittered pirate nemesis. Watch the Peter Pan Live trailer after the jump. Read More »

As one live-action fairy tale after another winds its way to the big screen, NBC is doing one better with an actual live production. Following the smash success (well, ratings-wise) of last winter’s The Sound of Music Live!, the network is putting on Peter Pan Live! this winter.
Allison Williams stars as the boy who never grew up (which kinda fits, since Girls is all about girls who can’t quite seem to grow up) and Christopher Walken plays the malicious Captain Hook. The first Peter Pan Live poster has just been revealed and you can see it after the jump.

Producer Neil Meron has unveiled the first look at Christopher Walken as Peter Pan Live!‘s Captain Hook. And it’s good that we already know it’s Walken under there, because we might not have been able to recognize him otherwise. See the Christopher Walken Captain Hook after the jump.
