Ryan Reynolds may finally get the chance to play Deadpool as he was violently and sarcastically envisioned.

Twentieth Century Fox announced yesterday that they will move forward with the X-Men spinoff Deadpool, with the film assigned a February 12, 2016 release date. Tim Miller will direct and though there is no deal in place yet for Reynolds, it is expected he will star as the mercenary for the second time. But it is probably for the best that we all forget the mishandled version featured in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

The announcement comes after test footage of the film leaked online and the resounding response was, “THAT. IS. AWESOME.” Reynolds recently spoke to the Niagara Falls Review about the response.

“There was such an overpowering reaction to the footage, you sort of feel like, ‘Oh, so we weren’t crazy for our reasons for loving this character, for loving this role.’ It’s interesting to see the power of the internet. It’s awe-inspiring, actually. And it’s neat that Twitter and Facebook and Instagram can move mountains when used in the right way.”

What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than by watching Van Wilder shoot people in the face? (THR)

Having enough colored birds on his resume, Darren Aronofsky has opted out of directing Red Sparrow. Aronofsky had been in negotiations to direct the adaptation of veteran CIA officer Jason Matthews’ spy thriller since the fall, but has decided to move on to his yet-to-be-confirmed next project.

The project remains a priority for 20th Century Fox so there next step is to find a writer to put together the script. And they can’t just copy and paste from the book because that’s cheating. How are they supposed to learn if somebody else does it for them? (THR)

The folks at 20th Century Fox have picked up a horror script based upon the works of Edith Wharton, so naturally they’ve hired Joe Wright AnthonyMinghella Ben Stiller to direct. That’s right. Ben Stiller is attached to the period horror film, The Mountain. The story is based on Wharton’s Summer and follows a young woman who receives a mysterious brooch from a lover that forces her to look into her past.

Stiller will reunite with Reality Bites scripter Helen Childress for the Rosemary’s Baby-tinged project. There has been zero confirmation of Eddie Vedder‘s involvement from his camp. (Deadline)

It’s done. After a long search and tense negotiations, Bruce Willis and 20th Century Fox have decided to just go with John Moore for Die Hard 5 after all.

Originally, Noam Murro was hired to film a 75-year old John McClan fighting bad guys in Russia. However, he jumped ship to direct the much more shirtless 300: Battle Of Artemisia. Then, the studio made the offer to Moore (Max Payne, The Omen) but Bruce Willis wasn’t completely sold. A few directors were brought into consideration, including Attack the Block’s Joe Cornish, Drive’s Nicolas Winding Refn, and Fast Five’s Justin Lin. Ultimately, Moore won over Willis with his ability to stage and shoot practical, non CGI-heavy action scenes without crashing the budget by vaulting a flaming car into it. (Deadline)

Colton Harris-Moore is ready to give back. The Barefoot Bandit was captured in July of 2010 after a two year crime spree when police in the Bahamas shot out the engine of a stolen boat which he was using to allude capture. I love this kid. And so does Hollywood. Colton-Moore has signed a movie deal with 20th Century Fox for $1.3 million that he will use to repay his victims.

“I did things that were not only a violation of law, but also of trust,” Harris-Moore said a written statement released by his attorneys. “I can’t undo what I did. I can only try to make things better.”

He said he wanted the statement to be read by the people of Camano Island and the San Juan Islands, “where I was born and raised.”

He said he would only sign if his victims would be repaid.

I am humbled to know I can now help the people I hurt, at least for the financial damage I caused them,” Harris-Moore wrote. “I have absolutely zero interest in profiting from any of this and I won’t make a dime off it. It all goes to restitution. That’s what I insisted on from the beginning and the contract I signed guarantees it.”

Colton-Moore is currently working on a script about his incredibly metal story with Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black. As his lawyer comments, “Nobody knows the nitty-gritty of Colton’s story.” I look forward to learning all of the details. Now go put on some shoes, hippy. (THR)

This group of soldiers in the Congo obviously aren’t familiar with Dunston Checks In or select episodes of Night Court. If they were, they’d be aware that primates are intelligent, precocious creatures capable of advanced learning and mimicry. And in the case of Dunston Checks In, they’re also adept at expertly surfing on hotel room service carts.

Anyway, this is an amusing little viral for Twentieth Century Fox’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes. My only regret is that they didn’t take the opportunity to dress the chimp in people clothes. See what a difference a stylish pair of overalls makes?(via Bloody Disgusting)

Cinema Con is in full swing in Las Vegas and our existing warrants prevented us from attending, but that doesn’t mean we can’t live vicariously through other movie sites. /Film got their hands on a promotional calendar from 20th Century Fox that contains first looks at their upcoming releases that we’ll be poking fun at over the next year. Let’s check them out together while we feel disdain toward the kitten calendars hanging on our office walls that don’t feature movie first looks. Stupid calico. Get out of that birdcage. You are not a bird. You are a kitten.

RISE OF THE APES

Our first look at the CG Caesar. Not too shabby. Excited to see what the apes look like in full. Unless this is actually Frieda Pinto. In which case, ming! Girlfriend let herself go.

NOW

Is this a movie or a Justin Timberlake music video? I’m guessing the lack of Timbaland or white guys with cornrows means it’s a movie.

THE SITTER

I’m told 95% of this film takes place at a fast food drive-thru. Hill’s suggestion.

WE BOUGHT A ZOO

Matt Damon uses a hand puppet to teach his daughter about the birds and bees and guarantee that she grows up to be a Furry.

THE BIG YEAR

Steve Martin, Jack Black, and Owen Wilson camp outside co-star Rashida Jones‘ dressing room window.

THE DESCENDANTS

George Clooney and his The Descendants co-stars also decide to check out Rashida Jones’ dressing room window. Can’t a girl get some privacy???

Johnny Knoxville and Andy Samberg are close to landing roles in 20th Century Fox‘s Three Stooges, The Wrap is reporting. The pair, along with Australian comic Shane Jacobson, would play Larry, Curly and Moe, characters that were previously tied to Benicio del Toro, Sean Penn and Jim Carrey.

Peter and Bobby Farrelly are on board to direct the film, which was originally part of MGM‘s lineup before financial troubles forced the studio to abandon the project. It’s a shame MGM couldn’t hold onto the rights. Mel Gibson did a TV movie based on the Stooges a few years back, and look at him now!

I’ve got good news for anyone who was left cold by X-Men 3 or Wolverine. Producers have decided to give X-Men: First Class a plot. Now that’s a step in the right direction!

X-Men: First Class charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.

Nobody is really certain what exactly ‘Armageddon’ means. It might mean the end of the world as we know it, or it may refer to a mutant enemy. Or it just might be that monster truck. Personally, I’d be more fearful of Gravedigger. He can jump the larger amount of cars. (via /Film)

"Stop it. You're causing a scene."

20th Century Fox has decided to lawyer up against a webmaster who posted the leaked Deadpool script on her online screenplay database. The studio has filed a $15 million suit against Patricia McIlvane on the grounds of copyright infringement. Isn’t reading Deadpool punishment enough?

Though she wasn’t the original source of the leak, McIlvane is being targeted while larger sites like io9 and the original leak have not been targeted. She describes how she received the news on her website:

Two strangers knocked on her door and informed her, in front of her children, 20th Century Fox was suing her for 15 million dollars. Two hours later, after grilling her with questions for two solid hours, they left her stunned and crying in her living room staring at a business card that stated they were “private investigators.”

This was the first contact PJ had from 20th Century Fox regarding a Media Fire online script library she created — and was the day 20th Century Fox filed a law suit against PJ in federal court for fifteen million dollars.

Seems harsh. Whatever happened to a cease and desist? The jokes on Fox though. I don’t think she even has $15 million. They’re going to be really embarrassed when they get to court. (THR)
