Jack Black Will Show Us ‘How To Stop A Robot Uprising’

Sunday, October 24 by

"You wanna step to this, ese? Do ya? DO YA?!?"
You all laughed when I warned you on the inevitable robot uprising. And then that other time when I got pantsed in church. At least now, Hollywood is listening.
Just the other day it was announced that Steven Spielberg would choose the adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's Robopocalypse as his next directorial effort, and this weekend comes news that Jack Black will adapt another of Wilson's books about robots overthrowing mankind (seriously, one wasn't enough?). Black, along with Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink, are looking to develop How To Survive A Robot Uprising. The eventual film will star Black as a layabout in a future society where robots are our slaves. When they revolt, it's up to Jack Black to save us all. It's like "Battlestar Galactica" with more farting. (io9)

New Zealand Seems a Little Too Desperate to Keep ‘The Hobbit’

Saturday, October 23 by

New Zealand is coming across as a little too desperate about this whole Hobbit situation. Granted, I know losing the Peter Jackson film, with its $500 million budget, would be a huge economic loss, but this video/rally seems just a little over the top.

New Zealand has to understand that Warner Bros. isn't going to respect them if they act so needy. What they need to do is act like they don't give a damn where The Hobbit is shot. Maybe New Zealand can even make out with some executives from Universal in a public place where Warner Bros. can totally see what's going on! That's sure to make Warner Bros. jealous! (Deadline)

‘Community’ Halloween Episode Preview

Saturday, October 23 by

This morning I have for you a preview of the upcoming Halloween episode of "Community." Zombies have taken over Greendale. The producers have also managed to make all the characters' costumes funny again, as well as indicative of their unique personalities. Jeff is so vain that he always goes as something effortlessly attractive. This year he's David Beckham. Brilliant. And wait until you see Senor Chang.
"Community" is without a doubt one of the best shows on television, and it's perplexing to me that no one watches it. You and I might watch it, but everyone else is tuning into "The Big Bang Theory" and not DVRing the little college sitcom on NBC at the same time. Some affiliates across the country are even dropping it from their lineup due to the fact that no one in their city gives a crap. That is not a good sign, folks. Once affiliates start dropping programs it's not long before it gets yanked from the schedule altogether. Let's watch this Halloween episode and save this show from going the way of "Arrested Development."

In this exclusive clip from Tony Scott's Unstoppable, Denzel Washington tries to enlist Chris Pine's help in an attempt stop a runaway train carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals.

Lionsgate has dropped the trailer for Rabbit Hole, officially entering the 2011 Oscar race. The film stars Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart as parents who try to cope with the tragedy of losing their child. John Cameron Mitchell directs a David Lindsay-Abaire script adapted from his acclaimed play. You know what that means, right? Actors acting, and acting hard! Look for Kidman in the Best Actress category this year.

Liam Neeson Replaces Mel Gibson In ‘The Hangover 2′

Friday, October 22 by

"Okay, Mr. Gibson. If your career will just follow me this way."
Liam Neeson continues to build his film resume of doing anything anyone asks him to do. As previously reported, Mel Gibson was lined up to play a tattooist in The Hangover 2. The news caused the cast and crew to revolt, which led to Mel losing the part. That's when Bradley Cooper got on the horn with Liam Neeson and offered him the cameo role.
That's good. I guess. It's kind of a lame cameo though. Mike Tyson was clever stunt-casting, and his inclusion worked well with the first movie's plot. Neeson seems like a total left field choice. And he's in everything. Literally. Go through your DVD collection and look really hard during crowd shots. I'm sure he'll pop up 8 times out of 10. (Variety)

Steven Spielberg Will Next Direct ‘Robopocalypse’

Friday, October 22 by

Steven Spielberg has made a firm commitment to Robopocalypse as his next directorial effort. He initially chose War Horse over the robot uprising tale, but he's Steven Spielberg and he can come back to sh*t later if he wants to, ya heard? He'll start shooting the Drew Goddard-scripted adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's novel in January 2012 for a 2013 release.
The novel won't even be published until June 2011. Spielberg has been collecting pages as Wilson churns them out, immediately having them adapted into script form and storyboarded. Makes you wonder if the book is even necessary. Who needs to read stupid words when Spielberg will just flood our senses with CG robot battles a year later? That's the Michael Bay stance on literacy.

‘Mad Men’ Actress Peyton List

Friday, October 22 by

“Mad Men” might be over until next year, but fortunately the show’s generous lineup of sweater-clad office vixens is still around to keep us going. Enter Peyton List, the 24-year-old stunner whose depiction of secretary-turned-socialite Jane Siegel became a welcome element in the series midway through season two. A model since age eight, List took a stab at acting with a bit role in an episode of “Sex and the City” back in 2000. Lucky for us, she kept it up. Here’s hoping we’ll see more of Roger Sterling’s young wife in the months ahead.
A word from Peyton: “I was on the box art for some young girl-crush kind of board games. It’s embarrassing.”

Brad Pitt Wants To Lock ‘In With The Devil’

Friday, October 22 by

If Clooney finds this, he's finished.
Brad Pitt's Plan B has picked up the rights to In With The Devil. A novel that tells the true tale of James Keene, football player turned drug dealer turned mole for the FBI. It's reported that Pitt is interested in the role of Keene, a man who struck a deal with the FBI to go undercover in a sanitarium. There he was to befriend a serial killer and coax his confessions from him.
We won't spoil the book for you because we don't read, but this sounds like a solid premise. Imagine being locked in a cell with a man who could kill you at any time, while encouraging them to go to the darkest parts of their mind. That would suck about a thousand times more than sharing a cubicle with a farter. (Liz Smith)

Michael Bay Playing Nice with ‘Transformers 3′ Cameraman

Friday, October 22 by

Michael Bay and James Cameron: Two directors who don’t take any sh*t, with comparatively different results. Bay’s actually kind of bowing to Cameron by shooting Transformers 3 in 3D. He’d always said he thought it was just a gimmick. So now he’s got to be nice to 3D camera inventor Vincent Pace.

“We’re doing Transformers with Michael Bay, and that’s a big challenge because he’s not the kind of director that’s going to give you a break,” Pace said as he demonstrated his cameras from Avatar. “But he met it halfway and he said, ‘Look, it complements my product, and I want to incorporate this into my shooting style.’”

Exclusive: ‘Child’s Play’ Reboot Details

Review: ‘Hereafter’

Friday, October 22 by

Hereafter is a Final Destination movie with the air of respectability that Clint Eastwood commands, but absolutely no fun. Clint Eastwood doing Final Destination may sound awesome, but this is…

Bryan Singer’s ‘Jack The Giant Killer’ Is Greenlit

Friday, October 22 by

Langella never loses a spaghetti tug o' war.
Production on Bryan Singer's Jack The Giant Killer was slowed down earlier this year when Singer realized that giants do not exist. After scouring Samoa and BBW dating sites for talent, he decided it would just be easier to use computers.  Also in that time, the script was reworked by Christoper McQuarrie and now is in a good enough place to receive the greenlight.
Kick-Ass's Aaron Johnson is favored for the lead role of the hero who travels to the land of giants to save a princess. However, Singer also met with Andrew Garfield to discuss the part. Singer's always had an interesting eye for casting so, if he can evade the studio notes, we could end up with someone completely unexpected in the role. Let's just hope it doesn't drag out like all of the Spider-Man reboot. I'm still half-expecting Betty White and Helen Mirren to battle it out for the role of Aunt May. (Deadline)
