Well, Sony Pictures and Amblin Entertainmet want you to neuralize that awesome idea out of your head in favor of a more traditional, box office friendly rehash of the Men in Black franchise.

Straight Outta Compton and The Fate of the Furious director F. Gary Gray is currently in talks to direct a new Men in Black movie that is being called a “spinoff grounded in the original premise” of the film that followed a secret organization tasked with policing extra-terrestrial life and keeping Earth safe from the scum of the universe. But when you hear how the project is described, it sounds more like a straightforward reboot. Read More »

Wipe your minds of the idea of a Men in Black and 21 Jump Street crossover, because the next Men in Black big screen project is a spin-off film.

Sony is officially expanding its Men in Black universe with a spin-off film, but one without original stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. Still, there will still be plenty of suits and aliens – though hopefully less time travel than we saw in Men in Black 3.

A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 2

The practice of beloved TV or movie properties getting a second life has practically become synonymous with Netflix — the streaming service made its name as an original content service by tapping into the nostalgia of popular properties like Arrested Development and Full House.

But it’s rare that Netflix will take a chance on a moderately successful movie adaptation that was met with mixed reception, and outright disdain from fans of the books. But A Series of Unfortunate Events came to Netflix, where it was spearheaded by Barry Sonnenfeld, the director originally attached to the 2004 movie. And it was a hit. The series met with rave reviews from critics and fans alike, who lauded its unique visuals, fourth-wall-breaking characters. and witty black comedy. A Series of Unfortunate Events was quite a fortunate break for Netflix.

It was too for Sonnenfeld, who was able to finally bring his vision for an adaptation to life alongside the books’ author, Daniel Handler (whose pseudonym, Lemony Snicket, is also an active character in the series). We spoke with Sonnenfeld about the runaway success of the first season of A Series of Unfortunate Events, and what we can expect for the second and now-confirmed third.
