That long-gestating Tupac Shakur biopic is in need of a director once again, as John Singleton has dropped out of talks to helm. Antoine Fuqua was originally lined up to direct, but left the project due to difficulties with casting the lead role – even a nationwide talent search failed to yield any candidates who passed muster — and Singleton entered negotiations last month.

Now, with the Shakur pic off his plate, Singleton’s next project will be an untitled love story that reunites him with Baby Boy stars Tyrese Gibson and Taraji P. Henson. More after the jump.

If you saw the above image and thought John Lasseter and Steven Spielberg were going to co-direct Scream 5, sorry to get your hopes up. It just so happens each has a bit of news involving the long standing champion in the battle of apathetic filmmaking, the sequel. Sequel Bits won’t be a daily occurrence (like the week old Superhero Bits) but sometimes, when there’s some interesting sequel news that might not deserve its own article, it’s easiest just to round it up. So, after the jump read about:

  • How John Lasseter directed scenes from Cars 2 on an iPad
  • The Weinstein Company setting release dates for Scary Movie 5 and Halloween 3D
  • Tyrese Gibson‘s hilarious notion Steven Spielberg would direct a Transformers 4

New Photos: ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’

With the approaching release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, images from the film are starting to get out into the wild. It seems like there are certain requirements for any Transformers stills that don’t feature robots: they’ve got to have explosions, Shia LaBeouf running, or characters appearing to cautiously move through a location. And now we’ve got an image to cover each one of those bases for the third film. Check ‘em out after the break. And, sorry, no robots. Read More »

Fast Five Trailer

Universal Pictures has released the first movie trailer for the latest installment of the Fast and the Furious series, Fast Five. The film stars Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris. Justin Lin, who has directed the last couple of sequels (beginning with The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift in 2006), directed this latest installment. I havent really enjoyed a film in this series since the original movie. I must admit, this trailer actually makes the new sequel look like it could actually be fun. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Chances are it’s going to be a good day when you wake up with a trailer description for the new Transformers movie in your inbox. And that’s what happened today. Our friends at the Italian site Bad Taste saw the teaser trailer for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, starring Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Tyrese Gibson, Josh Duhamel and Patrick Dempsey, and want to tell everyone about it. The teaser played in 3D at a large convention called the Giornate Professionali di Cinema di Sorrento in Sorrento, Italy which also, reportedly, screened footage from Paul Anderson’s The Three Musketeers 3D and the trailer for  Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon will be released on July 1 and this teaser is rumored to be attached to The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader and TRON: Legacy in the coming weeks. Read the description after the jump. Read More »
