‘Ted 2′ Moved Into Crowded Summer 2015

Ted Mark Wahlberg Header

Briefly: Ted is coming later than we thought. Initially, writer director Seth MacFarlane announced a April 2015 release for Ted 2, the sequel to last year’s smash hit comedy. And while the follow-up hasn’t even begun production, that date has already changed.

Ted 2, starring Mark Wahlberg, will now be released June 26, 2015. It’s a weekend in a super packed summer that no one had yet claimed and will mark Wahlberg’s second straight summer with a July 4 weekend release (Transformers: Age of Extinction is out June 27, 2014.)

Director Michael Bay has posted the first official cast photo from Transformers 4: The Age Of Extinction featuring Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor. Wahlberg stars in the film as a mechanic named Cade who makes a discovery that attracts the attention of Autobots, Decepticons and a paranoid government official. Peltz plays Wahlberg’s teenage daughter Tessa, and we can only assume that Reynor plays Tessa’s boyfriend or love interest. Check out the full photo, after the jump.

Rupert Wyatt Could Direct Mark Wahlberg in ‘The Gambler’

Rupert Wyatt

As filmmakers go, Martin Scorsese, Todd Phillips, and Rupert Wyatt are pretty damn different. However, they do have one project in common: The Gambler.

A few years back, Scorsese was set to direct the remake of the 1974 film, with Leonardo DiCaprio attached to play the lead. He fell off at some point, and last year The Hangover helmer Phillips entered talks to take over the project. That didn’t pan out either. Now Wyatt and Mark Wahlberg are reportedly eyeing the project. Star Trek 3 it isn’t, but it sounds like an exciting next step for Wyatt nonetheless. Hit the jump for all the details.

There’s been no shortage of videos and paparazzi shots from the Transformers 4 set, but now we finally have our first official look at the human stars, sourced right from Michael Bay.

The director has posted a photo of himself, actors Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor, and various crew members standing atop some fancy-looking construction, probably alien in origin. There are no Dinobots in sight, sadly, though an unconfirmed report indicates that the fan-favorite characters could be shooting a scene today. Check out the photo and get the latest on the (potential) Dinobots after the jump.

Seth MacFarlane is such a jokester, it’s hard to take anything he says seriously. But he may have just revealed when Ted 2 will be coming out.

While the timeline for a possible Passover 2015 release for Ted 2 certainly sounds plausible, it’s MacFarlane’s use of “Passover” and not “April” or “Spring” that raises eyebrows. Passover is a particularly important festival in the Jewish calendar. Wouldn’t releasing a movie as raunchy as Ted 2 at that time seem a little off? Then again, maybe that’s the point.

UPDATE: This date has, in fact, been confirmed. Read More »

In a new interview, Mark Wahlberg says he’d like to take over the Iron Man franchise from Robert Downey Jr. He’s mostly kidding. The line is delivered in a semi-joking tone and he goes on to say he’s never really been asked to play a superhero. He prefers to play someone real and relatable. The actor then realizes, with turns in Ted and the upcoming Transformers 4, he’s getting quite comfortable acting with someone who isn’t there and finishes the thought by saying how much he liked The Avengers.

So while Wahlberg’s quote definitely comes off as a throwaway line, the fact that Robert Downey Jr. could only have two more appearances as Iron Man, and that Wahlberg is six years younger than Downey Jr., does leave the door open a crack. Check out the interview below. Read More »
