THR have caught wind that writer-director Jonathan Levine is set to re-team with his ’50/50′ stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen for an Untitled Xmas Comedy. Sony beat out several studios to nab the project, which is on the fast track for a summer 2014 start. The film revolves around three childhood best friends who reunite in New York City for their annual tradition of going out on Christmas Eve. Gordon-Levitt and Rogen will play two of the best friends, with the third lead role still to be cast. Levine penned the screenplay.
The project also reunites the ’50/50′ trio with Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane, whose company Mandate Pictures – now named Good Universe – produced and co-financed ’50/50.’ Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Point Grey Pictures also is onboard to produce Xmas. ’50/50,’ which centered on a 27-year-old man’s (Gordon-Levitt) struggles after a cancer diagnosis, became a critical hit and was nominated for a best picture Golden Globe. The film cost $8 million and earned $39 million worldwide.
With ‘Non-Stop’ on the horizon, Universal Pictures has teamed with Key & Peele for a brilliant new sketch featuring their Liam Neesons-loving valets.

During a transatlantic flight from New York City to London, U.S. Air Marshal Bill Marks (Neeson) receives a series of cryptic text messages demanding that he instruct the government to transfer $150 million into an off-shore account. Until he secures the money, a passenger on his flight will be killed every 20 minutes. ‘Non-Stop,’ which reunites Neeson with ‘Unknown’ director Jaume Collet-Serra and producer Joel Silver, co-stars Golden Globe Award winner Julianne Moore, Lupita Nyong’o, Scoot McNairy, Nate Parker, Anson Mount, Michelle Dockery, and Corey Stoll.

Dr. Will Caster (Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions.

Variety bring word that ‘Game of Thrones’ (Daario Naharis) star Ed Skrein is set to succeed Jason Statham in the reboot of the ‘Transporter’ franchise. Skrein previously starred in Ben “Plan B” Drew’s critically acclaimed crime drama ‘Ill Manors.’ “We searched everywhere to find a fresh face who had the potential to become an action movie star and we’ve found the right match with Ed Skrein, who’s not only a great actor but also has enough charisma and physical stamina to play Frank Martin (the ‘Transporter’s’ leading role) with brio,” EuropaCorp CEO Christophe Lambert told the outlet.
Although plot details are still kept under wraps, Christophe Lambert said the first installment of the ‘Transporter’ reboot will return to the French Riviera, the site of the first movie. He said the writers, Bill Collage and Adam Cooper, have given more depth to the character of Frank Martin, whose job is to transport goods and ask no questions. For instance, the movie will explore Martin’s relationship with his father, whose role will be played by a prominent actor.

Jonathan Glazer’s (Sexy Beast, Birth) soon-to-be-released ‘Under The Skin.’ In search of loners, Laura (Scarlett Johansson) drives around the exquisitely moody landscapes of the Scottish highlands. She’s an alien, sent from afar and equipped with enough human language and awesome seductive power to capture, destroy and presumably send home human males. She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Glazer and co-writer Walter Campbell adapt Michael Faber’s acclaimed novel of the same name.
‘Under The Skin’ has already been critically-acclaimed at the Venice, Toronto and London film festivals. The score for the movie, which has also received lots of praise, is by Mica Levi. The film opens in the UK on March 14th and in the US from April 4th. ‘Under The Skin’ is a Film4 and BFI presentation, in association with Silver Reel, Creative Scotland and FilmNation Entertainment.
