Odeya Rush in The Odd Life of Timothy Green

Jack Black seems like a natural fit to lead Sony’s upcoming adaptation of R.L. Stine‘s Goosebumps, seeing as he’s worked with director Rob Letterman before on Gulliver’s Travels and Shark Tale. But a kids’ movie needs a kid to star, and now the film has found one in We Are What We Are actress Odeya Rush. Get more plot details after the jump.

Jack Black / Tim Robbins

Jack Black in Gulliver's Travels

If you think about it, a normal-sized person stumbling onto an island populated by a minuscule race sounds like just the kind of twisted concept that horror writer R.L. Stine might’ve come up with. So maybe it’s appropriate that his Goosebumps series will be brought to life by the same team that made Gulliver’s Travels.

Director Rob Letterman signed on to the Sony project several months back, and now he plans to bring his Gulliver’s Travels star Jack Black along with him for the ride. Hit the jump for plot details and more.

Adult Wolf

When MTV unveiled their new take on Teen Wolf in 2011, their efforts were initially met with eyerolls from folks old enough to remember the original Teen Wolf. The new series didn’t bear much of a resemblance to its ostensible source material, which had been a somewhat cheesy ’80s comedy. If anything, the new show was much more like the angsty Twilight, with its ripped, frequently shirtless shapeshifters.

But perhaps it’s for the best that MTV took the property in an entirely different direction after all. Because according to Jack Black‘s new Teen Wolf sequel Adult Wolf, Scott Howard’s life went on a steep downward trajectory after adolescence. ”Back in high school I had it all: Brains, skills, girls, but after graduation, everything just fell apart,” he reflects. “Now I’ve got no job, no girlfriend, and one very annoying roommate.” Check out the “sizzle reel” after the jump.

Will Ferrell / Jack Black

Ferrell and Black are attached to star in Tag Brothers, based on a true story about what may very well be the most epic Tag game ever. The project is set up at New Line, which just won the pitch after a heated bidding war. Hit the jump to keep reading.

In a piece of fan casting worthy of years and years of Ghostbusters 3 speculation, director Jason Reitman has revealed that for his next live reading, Ghostbusters, he’s cast Seth Rogen, Jack Black and Rainn Wilson as Venkman, Stanz and Spengler respectively. The event, part of an ongoing series presented by Film Independent at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, takes places Thursday December 12. It’s sold out.

Of course, Jason Reitman’s father, Ivan Reitman, directed the hit 1984 film and revealed to his son that much of the famous dialogue was improvised by Bill Murray. So this isn’t just a script reading, it’s a combination of the original shooting script with Murray’s iconic one-liners. Read the rest of the cast, and how you can possibly see this once-in-a-lifetime event, after the jump. Read More »
