Richard Linklater Wants That Big Cartoon Fish Movie Remake Money
Tuesday, March 15 by

What would get primarily indie filmmaker Richard Linkletter to helm a big budget remake of ‘The Incredible Mr. Limpet’? I’m guessing millions of dollars in worms.

‘Wrath Of The Titans’ To Face Monstrous New Teen Girl Franchise
Monday, March 14 by

The Kraken was nothing compared to tween girls desperately in need of a new ‘Twilight’. Even so, Warner Bros is acting bravely, pitting their ‘Titans’ against ‘Hunger Games’.

‘Sucker Punch’ Stills Feature Guns, Boobs And Jon Hamm
Monday, March 14 by

A movie with this much boob and gun can’t be bad, right? Can it? Maybe mix a little Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”) in there for credibility, just in case.

Friday, February 4 by

Stephen King has worked hard to earn his status as a best-selling author and Maine’s creepiest man. That’s why producers of the upcoming remake of his end of days epic The Stand should listen to his advice.

‘Fletch’ To Be Re-Imagined, Because Everyone Loves Re-Imaginings

I guess people like NBC’s ‘Community’ so much, they want to see one of Chevy Chase’s best movies remade, but not starring him?

‘Space Jam’ Website Still Going Strong
Wednesday, December 29 by

One of two things has occurred. Either the Internet has managed to open up a wormhole that allows users to view websites in the year 1996, or Warner Bros. has paid to operate and maintain the official Space Jam website for nearly 15 years.

The West ain’t as wild as it used to be, but all it takes is a couple of guns, a few pretty girls, and a heavy dose of hell bent vendetta to change all that.

This is Brand’s second high-profile remake, with Arthur set to hit theaters next year. This gives me hope for a remake of “The Young Ones” with Brand playing the role of Rick Pratt.

Joss Whedon Responds To ‘Buffy’ Reboot With An Audible Sigh

Yesterday’s news of a non-Joss Whedon reboot of the Buffy franchise traveled fast and created a collective groan from fans of things that are very good. Including series creator Joss Whedon. Sort of.

So Let It Be Written: Hollywood Developing Two ‘Moses’ Movies
Friday, November 19 by

Hollywood is going old-school. Actually it’s more like Old Testament. Both Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox are developing films based on The Book of Exodus, which contains the story of Moses leading the Jews out of Egypt.

And Satan Laughed: Warner Bros. Trying for ‘Wizard of Oz’ Remake with Robert Zemeckis
Wednesday, November 17 by

If you ask me, going back to the original script is a great idea. Hopefully it’s chalk-full of references to William Jennings Bryan and the gold standard, which is sure to bring the Ron Paul demographic out to the theaters.

Ryan Reynolds Gets All Alien In ‘Green Lantern’ Trailer
Tuesday, November 16 by

Warner Bros. Explores Their ‘ACME Warehouse’
Tuesday, October 26 by

Warner Bros. has recently been getting all jazzed up about their Looney Tunes properties. The studio is producing new 3D shorts for the big screen, and Mike Myers has signed on to voice stinky, sexually aggressive skunk Pepe Le Pew. Now WB has bought a pitch for a film that centers on the ACME Warehouse, the outlet where Wile E. Coyote frequently shops.
There aren't many details about the Kevin and Dan Hageman pitch, but as you can tell from the above pic, there are plenty of products to explore. Of course, WB could instead decide to capitalize on the world's overwhelming fascination with the history of the anvil. A three hour documentary on the device most often used by animated characters to murder other animated characters would get butts in the seats, no question. (THR)

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)
Watch New Zealand come across as desperate after the jump…

Tom Hardy Will Be Someone in Chris Nolan’s Third ‘Batman’
Wednesday, October 13 by

Christopher Nolan enjoyed working with Tom Hardy on Inception so much that he's brought him on to star in his third Batman movie. Warner Bros. won't divulge any details, but everyone's assuming Hardy will play a villain. One thing is for certain: he won't play Batman. That's Christian Bale's role, silly.
If you're upset that Hardy's dropping Mad Max for Batman, don't fret. He'll be back on that project when (if?) it ever gets going again. God hates the production of Mad Max almost as much as he hates Transformers 3. So Hardy as a Batman villain? What say you, commenters? (Deadline)

Muggle Alert! ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1′ Won’t Be Released In 3D!
Friday, October 8 by

"Say what?!"
Warner Bros. has scrapped plans to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 in 3D. Break some hearts, THR:
"When the film arrives in theaters on Nov. 19, it will be in 2D, playing both conventional theaters and IMAX, but that "we will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release date window. Despite everyone's best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality. We do not want to disappoint fans who have long-anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey."
Good riddance. If the film was going to have Clash of the Titans craptastic post 3D then keep that mofo in the second dimension. Releasing Part 2 in 3D will make it all that more memorable and dare I say…special. However Warner Bros, I suggest you reenforce your studio gates. Some irritated muggles might be storming them at any moment.

Robert Downey Jr. Dives Into ‘Yucatan’
Thursday, October 7 by

Once again, thank you, Internet.
Warner Bros. has hired Sherlock Holmes writer Anthony Peckham to do a complete rewrite on Yucatan as a star vehicle for Robert Downey Jr. The actor will also produce the film with his wife Susan Downey through their Team Downey production company. Awwww, I love family affairs. Maybe their kid can mark the scenes with a little clapboard.
In the film, Downey will play a deep-sea salvage expert hired to steal a mysterious hidden treasure hidden deep underwater in the Mayan ruins of Yucatan. So far Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson haven't wiggled their way into the project. God knows they love looking for treasure together and getting into trouble along the way. Yucatan was originally a passion project for the late and great actor Steve McQueen. He compiled over 1500 pages of notes but never got the film off the ground before dying in 1980. Hope he's cool with his kids handing it over to Downey. A vengeful McQueen zombie would be the worst kind of zombie. (Deadline)

‘Wolverine’ Shmolverine: Aronofsky Offered ‘Tales from the Gangster Squad’
Thursday, October 7 by

Yesterday, everyone on the Internet was reporting that Darren Aronofsky was taking on the Wolverine sequel. Well hold your damn horses. Now, Empire Online is reporting that Warner Bros. has made a counter offer that might just land the director in their camp: a 40's era period piece called Tales from the Gangster Squad.
Tales from the Gangster Squad follows the exploits of Sergeant John O’Mara’s off-the-books team of police mercenaries, who targeted mob-linked gangster Mickey Cohen and his attempts to bring East Coast organised crime firmly into LA. Originally chronicled in a series of LA Times articles by Paul Lieberman, the script has been penned by cop-turned-writer Will Beall.
That's a tough call. Both films sound like a good fit for Aronofsky. It reminds me a little of Sophie's Choice, except for this I'm going to stay tuned to find out what happens instead of switching over to "Real World/Road Rules Challenge" (Sorry, Sophie).
