Venom movie

Venom, the movie that is definitely real and not an elaborate early April Fools’ hoax, will be based on some very real comic book storylines.

Director Ruben Fleischer has the unenviable task of bringing the popular Spider-Man antihero to the big screen, sans Spider-Man. Thankfully, he has a plethora of Venom comic book arcs and issues to draw from. But no one Venom storyline will do — he’s going to adapt two.

John Cena and Kumail Nanjiani Movie

The success of a buddy cop movie not only hinges on a good script (as all movies do), but on the strength of the duo at the center of the movie. Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon, Gene Hackman and Roy Scheider in The French Connection, and Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell in Tango & Cash are all prime examples of fantastic partners in justice. But putting two partners together can be infinitely more difficult when comedy is involved, and now a new duo will be put to the test.

Universal Pictures has picked up an untitled buddy cop comedy from the mind of Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer, one that will have wrestler turned actor John Cena teaming up with Silicon Valley co-star Kumail Nanjiani. Read More »

archer and armstrong movie

While Sony struggles to build an entire movie universe out of the Spider-Man franchise, another comic book world is waiting in the wings. The studio partnered up with Valiant Comics a few years back to bring series like Bloodshot and Harbinger into theaters, but it’s been a slow road and a revolving door of writers and directors. Hopefully, this latest announcement will stick, because there’s a ton of promise in the Valiant characters.

The movie adaptation of Archer & Armstrong, which has seemingly laid dormant for a little while, has found a new director in Ruben Fleischer and a new screenwriter in Terry Rossio.

COPS Movie

Just when you thought every possible TV show for Hollywood to turn into a movie had been exhausted, along comes this news. We all know the long-running FOX TV show COPS, if only for the catchy theme song that goes, “Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do when they come for you?” The documentary show follows police officers as they pursue and apprehend small time criminals. Usually their collars are people illegally using or selling drugs, and sometimes those people try to run. And apparently that’s compelling enough to be turned into a feature film, and there’s even a director on board.
