Heat Vision are reporting that Simon Kinberg is coming on board to write Fox’s ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot. He will also be a producer on the project, joining Matthew Vaughn, his ‘X-Men: First Class’ colleague. Set for a March 6th, 2015 release date, ‘Fantastic Four’ is helmed by ‘Chronicle’ director Josh Trank. The film centers on the heroes whose Marvel comics kicked off in 1961. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, ‘Fantastic Four’ features a “family” of heroes – scientist Mr. Fantastic; his wife, Invisible Girl; her brother, the Human Torch; and Fantastic’s best friend, the Thing – who have sci-fi-tinged adventures while headquartered in the Baxter Building, a high-rise in New York City.
Fox has been working on a reboot for quite some time, with Jeremy Slater, Michael Green, Seth Grahame-Smith and T.S. Nowlin all having worked on versions. Sources tell the outlet that Simon Kinberg may be overhauling the script substantially. No stranger to the Marvel universe, Kinberg worked on ‘X-Men: Last Stand,’ produced ‘X-Men: First Class,’ and is working with Matthew Vaughn as co-writer and producer on Fox’s latest X-Men installment, 2014′s ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’
Columbia Pictures has premiered two new clips from Paul Greengrass’ ‘Captain Phillips,’ which is an adaptation of Phillips’ memoir ‘A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea.’ Pencilled in for a October 11th release date in the US and an October 18th bow in the UK, the likes of Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi, Barkhad Abdirahman, Catherine Keener, Max Martini, Yul Vazquez, Michael Chernus, Faysal Ahme, Chris Mulkey, Corey Johnson, David Warshofsky, John Magaro and Angus MacInnes star.
Columbia Pictures’ action-thriller Captain Phillips stars two-time Oscar® winner Tom Hanks in the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years. The film is directed by Oscar® nominee Paul Greengrass, from a screenplay by Billy Ray and based upon the book, A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea, by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty. The film is produced by Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, and Michael De Luca.
Variety bring word that Lizzy Caplan is in talks for a leading role in the upcoming comedy ‘The Interview,’ which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco. Rogen and Evan Goldberg are writing and directing the project, while Rogen, Goldberg and James Weaver are producing the pic through their Point Grey Pictures banner. The shingle is coming off one of its biggest hits, ‘This is the End,’ which has grossed more than a $100 million at the box office.
The potential casting marks a mini-reunion between the three actors who worked together on ‘Freaks and Geeks’ before the show was cancelled. A “topical comedy”, ‘The Interview’ revolves around a handsome talk show host (Franco) and his producer (Rogen) who find themselves in way over their heads when they get involved in a plot to assassinate the prime minister of North Korea.
Paramount Pictures has unleashed, via Digital Spy, this first clip from Jeff Tremaine’s ’Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.’ Set for a October 23rd release, the comedy blends Jackass-style pranks with a narrative involving Johnny Knoxville’s 86-year-old Irving Zisman and his 8-year-old grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll).
86-year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companions, his 8 year-old Grandson Billy in “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa”. This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicholl) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera.
Legendary Pictures’ ‘Warcraft,’ based upon Blizzard Entertainment’s globally-renowned universe, will be released by Universal Pictures on December 18th, 2015. Earlier this year it was announced that Duncan Jones is making the jump to big-budget tentpole movies, signing on to helm the live-action adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment’s video game universe ’World of Warcraft.’ ’World of Warcraft,’ one of the most popular multiplayer online role-playing games out there, is part fantasy, part science fiction and — depending on the game you’re playing — includes elements such as dragons and orcs, zombies and werewolves, and aliens and spaceships.
At present, Legendary Pictures are keeping the ‘Word of Warcraft’ script, written by Charles Leavitt (Blood Diamond, The Seventh Son), under wraps. Duncan Jones made his feature debut writing and directing 2009′s ‘Moon,’ the awesome indie sci-fi drama that starred Sam Rockwell and cost around $1 million to make. He followed that up with 2011′s ‘Source Code,’ a time travel thriller that starred Jake Gyllenhaal and cost around $35 million to make. ‘World of Warcraft’ is expected to have a budget north of $100 million. With Jones on-board as director my hopes are high for this one!
