Taylor Lautner has signed on to play Stretch Armstrong in the upcoming movie based on the popular toy line.
The story developed for the movie, being produced by Imagine and Hasbro, sees an uptight spy who stumbles across a stretching formula, which he takes and must now adjust to in everyday life and when fighting crime.
Universal is pushing for the movie to be filmed in 3-D, which is also pushing back its release date from 2011 to 2012
“The Thing” has found its first two victims.
The upcoming prequel to the horror classic will star Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Joel Edgerton according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Matthijs Van Heijningen is directing the latest movie, which was written by Ronald D. Moore and Eric Heisserer. Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman are producing.
The role will be Winstead’s first leading role. She recently starred in “Grindhouse” and “Live Free or Die Hard.”
The proposed remake of “Conquest of the Planet of the Apes” is hitting a stumbling block–finding a director.
Producer Peter Chernin has offered the director’s chair for “Ceasar” to Robert Rodriguez, Tomas Alfredson and Kathryn Bigelow only to see all three turn down the opportunity. Reports indicate that Chernin is now considering Albert and Allen Hughes, James McTeigue and Scott Stewart.
It’s barely been five years since “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” hit theaters, but that doesn’t mean Hollywood isn’t ready for a reboot. New York Magazine’s Vulture reports that Regency has assigned writer Akiva Goldman to write a reboot script. Rumors indicate the movie would be a prequel to the original.
If you didn’t pick up the DVD release of “Spiderman 2.1,” you may want to watch ABC later this week.
The network will air the movie, including the newly inserted scenes, for the first time on network television on Friday at 8 p.m. EST.
The scenes have been featured on airings on the cable outlet fx. They include a scene of J.J. trying on the Spider-Man costume and some extended fight sequences on the subway.
