The film was abandoned and never went into production. Mr. Sunday Movies has created a video essay giving the complete history of Superman Flyby. Watch that now after the jump.

Sparks fly, but lots of obstacles stand in their way because there would be no movie otherwise. Hit the jump to watch the first The Best of Me trailer.

30 Rock

When Paul Walker passed away late last year, he was at a very busy point in his career. His Hours was on the verge of opening, he’d already wrapped Brick Mansions, and he was in the middle of shooting Fast & Furious 7. He also had a few more projects lined up beyond that. One, Agent 47, went to Homeland star Rupert Friend yesterday. Now another, The Best of Me, could be taken over by James Marsden.

Michael Hoffman (most recently of the Coens-scripted Gambit) is directing the romance, based on a novel of the same title by Nicholas Sparks. Michelle Monaghan is set to co-star. Hit the jump for more details on the project.

Adam McKay Anchorman

Back in May, a group of journalists hopped in a van and were driven to Sea World in San Diego, CA to visit the final day of shooting Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. It was a day for the ages, filled with some of the biggest laughs I’ve ever had, and you can read about it here. During the quieter moments, we spoke with co-writer and director Adam McKay as well as star and co-writer Will Ferrell.

Below, you can read the full transcript of the on-set discussion with McKay, which reads like a master class in staying cool under pressure when directing one of the biggest comedies of the year. Read More »

2 Guns

One of the many projects that David O. Russell’s attached himself to and then detached himself from over the past several years is 2 Guns, an adaptation of a graphic novel by Steven Grant. He originally had Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson in mind for the lead roles, as two undercover federal agents who don’t realize the other is a lawman.

The picture fell into Baltasar Kormákur‘s hands after Russell left, with Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington starring. While Kormákur’s version doesn’t look quite as hilarious as Russell’s sounded, it’s retained an appealing streak of buddy-comedy humor that sets it apart from the other grim, gritty thrillers at the multiplex.

The film opens later this week, and Universal is making one last push with a final red-band trailer. Watch it after the jump.
