Will Watching ‘National Treasure’ Director’s Rom-Com Be Like Serving Jury Duty?
Monday, March 21 by

‘Unreasonable Doubt’ is about what happens when two jurors fall in love in a ’12 Angry Men’ style setting. Isn’t that like Pauly Shore’s ‘Jury Duty’?

‘Hop’ Poops Out New Trailer Along With Jelly Beans
Monday, March 21 by

I don’t necessarily think Universal’s ‘Hop’ looks ‘Smurfs’ bad, but the Russell Brand CG toon seems like stale old mini-Snickers.

Apatow is a celebrity, but you don’t see him flying to Africa to adopt/steal a bunch of babies. So maybe he’s onto something with his new movie pitch.

Universal Pictures to Restart ‘Firestarter’
Tuesday, December 14 by

Variety is reporting that producers are anxious to utilize enhanced special effects for the remake and develop a main character “with a little more edge.” I’m not sure how you give “more edge” to a 9-year-old who can melt people with her mind. Perhaps a lip piercing is in order? Or maybe producers can cast a child who is more “urban?”

Universal Hires Tony Gilroy To Point Shaky Camera At Jason Bourne
Monday, October 4 by

"MEEOOWWW!!!! KITCH!! KITCH!!"
Last fall, it seemed like the Bourne series was sunk when Paul Greengrass pulled a bitchfit and removed himself and star Matt Damon from a fourth Bourne film. That doesn't seem to bother Universal too much. Despite the fact that he directed Duplicity, they've just hired Tony Gilroy to direct the next chapter. Gilroy, of course, wrote each of the previous films as well as the newest script. Not sure if they plan to use Damon, recast, shoot a prequel, or go the tried-and-true route of using a cardboard cut-out. You really can't tell the difference if you shake the camera around enough. (Deadline)

Universal Buys Gritty ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’
Thursday, September 30 by

My problem with Snow White has always been that it's severely lacking in mixed martial arts. That won't be a problem anymore. Universal just plunked down more cash than any of us will ever see to buy the rights to Snow White and the Huntsman.
The script, written by Greyskull's Evan Daugherty, reimagines the classic by having Snow White team up with the Huntsman who was ordered to kill her. They live in the forest together where he trains her to fight and survive, and hopefully build up a tolerance to apple poison. Rupert Sanders is attached to direct, with no talent lined up just yet. I'd like to suggest Krysten Ritter and Bear Grylls. If there's anyone who can build a shelter out of dwarf carcasses, it's that guy. (Deadline)

‘Timecop’ To Be Remade As Big Budget Blockbuster
Tuesday, September 21 by

'JUDO-TAINT!!!!"
The film that dared to bring us two Ron Silvers is coming back. Universal has announced that they plan to actually write the word "Timecop" down on paper, follow it with more pages featuring description and dialogue, hire a director to wear a baseball cap that reads "Timecop" on the front, convince an actor to play a "Timecop," and then spend money on actually getting this thing made, and mass-produce billboards and other marketing materials that say "Timecop."
Sadly, they will not cast Jean Claude Van Damme to reprise his role as the cop who cops time for this one. Good luck finding an actor who can make his foot hover in front of people's faces. They don't teach that skill. You're born with it. (What's Playing)
