Plans for Bad Boys 3 may have stalled, but there’s may still be some more action yet in the form of a new Bad Boys TV spin-off. The planned show will focus on Gabrielle Union‘s character from Bad Boys II, an undercover operative with the DEA. While it’s doubtful Will Smith or Martin Lawrence‘s characters will show up, anyone looking for a Bad Boys fix might be keen to give the show a shot.

Warner Bros. Pictures has a new war drama called 12: Strong: The Declassified True Story of the Horse Soldiers coming to theaters in January of 2018. Formerly known as Horse Soldiers, the film follows a team of U.S. Special Forces soldiers sent into Afghanistan almost immediately after the attacks of 9/11 on a mission to track down a network of terrorists. But in order to get the job done, they must form a surprising alliance during a difficult time, one that is more relevant than ever during today’s times of political and cultural strife.
On February 7, 2017, /Film was invited to visit the set of 12 Strong during production in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

A year or two ago, the future of Bad Boys was looking extra bright with two sequels scheduled for release and writer-director Joe Carnahan (The Grey) at the helm. But he left the director’s chair on Bad Boys For Life, which was once planned to come out this year, then postponed to January 2018, and then scheduled for November of next year before its release date was scrapped altogether. Most Bad Boys 3 news has been disheartening lately, especially franchise star Martin Lawrence saying recently, “I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
Now the producer of the series, Jerry Bruckheimer, has given fans hope. Below, find out what Jerry Bruckheimer says about the hopeful future for Bad Boys 3.

Since a sequel to Top Gun has been in development for years, we won’t really believe it’s happening until the cameras are rolling. But for now, with director Joseph Kosinski set to direct the film with a July 2019 release date, this is the closest Top Gun 2 has ever been to becoming a reality.
Recently, there has been some concern from Paramount Pictures as to whether or not production on Top Gun: Maverick would be able to begin on time. But thanks to some recent remarks from producer Jerry Bruckheimer, it sounds like the sequel won’t be delayed, and there’s a new writer working on the script. Find out more about estimated production start and the new Top Gun 2 writer below. Read More »
Starz isn’t on the same level as a powerhouse premium service like HBO, but they’re still one of the big players in that space, and they’ve recently made waves by catering to underserved audiences with shows like Power and Outlander (not to mention the splash they made this year with their adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods). Now they’re looking to get into the blaxploitation genre with a TV adaptation of Black Samuari, and they’ve found the perfect person to star: Common, who kicked some serious ass in John Wick: Chapter 2.

Michael Bay directed three Transformers movies about Sam Witwicky, and two about Cade Yaeger, but only one about maybe his most likable action heroes, Stanley Goodspeed (Nicolas Cage) and John Patrick Mason (Sean Connery). Over 20 years after The Rock opened in theaters, sadly Bay isn’t attempting to reunite Cage and a retired Connery, but he did have an idea for how to get them back together. The Rock sequel would’ve picked up where the first movie left off, with Goodspeed and Carla (Vanessa Marcil) hitting the road with government secrets in hand.
Below, learn more about Bay’s idea for The Rock sequel.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth movie in Disney’s long-running film franchise, was being prepped way back in 2013. Maybe back then, the national consciousness was more open to the idea of another chapter in the continuing adventures of Johnny Depp’s buffoonish scalawag Captain Jack Sparrow. But now? Who knows. After overcoming some obstacles on the way to the big screen, the film finally opens today.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer says that the franchise won’t continue without Depp. So will this be the final entry in the saga? Has Jack Sparrow crested his final wave?

You might have read that headline and thought, “What the hell is Geostorm?” Well, you’re not alone. This was a movie that was slated to arrive back in October, but ended up getting pushed back to January 2017 over the summer, only to be pushed back yet again to October 20, 2017. All this comes after the movie shot down in Louisiana in October of 2014. But now there’s more bad news regarding the movie.
A new report indicates that test screenings from last winter resulted in some unfavorable audience reactions, and Warner Bros. Pictures and Skydance had some extensive and expensive reshoots over the past two weeks to fix the movie without the film’s director Dean Devlin and with significant changes to the movie, including the addition of producer Jerry Bruckheimer to oversee the reshoots.
