While J.K. Rowling is one of the biggest selling (and richest) authors in the world, she has never written a movie screenplay. But, when you're the creator of the billion dollar 'Harry Potter' franchise, even a first time writer can make some creative demands.
Rowling will write the screenplay for the forthcoming 'Harry Potter' spinoff 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' and her contract with Warner Bros. stipulates that her script cannot be rewritten, doctored or polished without her explicit permission.
Perhaps all work and no play really does make Jack a dull boy.
3-time Oscar-winning actor Jack Nicholson has quietly retired from acting according to a new report citing sources close to the 76-year-old actor. The actor reportedly suffering from memory loss and has no further plans to appear in any more movies.
After 'The Lone Ranger' opened to poor reviews and disappointing box office, Johnny Depp was criticized for his recent acting choices. From 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4' to 'Dark Shadows,' many accused Depp of going through the motions, all-too-happy to cash his paycheck to star in whatever Disney or Tim Burton was asking him to star in, regardless of the quality.
In a related story, Johnny Depp is in final negotiations to return as The Mad Hatter in Disney's 'Alice in Wonderland 2.'
Earlier this week, we got word that 'Terminator 5' would set up shop at Paramount Pictures, a new home for the franchise after two lackluster films with Warner Bros. But what did that actually mean for the movie? Sure, it had a new home, but does that actually get us closer to seeing 'Terminator 5' in theaters? It turns out it does. Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke out today, confirmed his involvement in 'Terminator 5' and said filming on the sequel is set to begin in January, 2014.
'Transformers 4' has promised a complete reboot for the franchise including all new robots. One classic who will return despite the new direction is the Autobots leader Optimus Prime. But even Prime isn't exempt from the reboot. The main robot character will have a completely new look in the film and director Michael Bay has revealed that new look to the fans.
Just a few months before filming was scheduled to begin, Tom Cruise has abruptly left Warner Bros.' planned remake of the classic '60s TV series 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' But one action-packed remake of an old spy TV show's loss is another's gain. Cruise will instead focus his attention on 'Mission: Impossible 5' which is now gearing up to begin production later this year.
'Fast Five' attempted - and quite successfully I might add - a reboot of sorts for the entire 'Fast and Furious' franchise, turning a series of movies about car racing into one exciting heist film. It was big and brash and sweaty and a complete success. So where do you go from there? 'Fast and Furious 6' attempts to answer that question by adding an -er suffix to all those adjectives above. Bigger, brasher, sweatier.
'Fast and Furious 6' is like 'Fast Five' on nitrous - director Justin Lin hits that proverbial turbo boost to go bigger, faster, stronger - and at times, that is a great thing. But when the NOS runs out, the drag race just turns into a drag.
If you're excited for 'Man of Steel' (and how can you not be), you're going to want to see this. It's the official 'Man of Steel' prequel that ties directly in to the upcoming movie. With a story by 'Man of Steel' writer David Goyer and director Zack Snyder, this doesn't feature much Superman but it does include a somewhat surprising lead character: Supergirl. Is this the start of a larger 'Man of Steel' universe? What hints does this hold for the movie? Let's find out!
"Will Robert Downey, Jr. star in 'Iron Man 4?'" has been a very hot question over the past few weeks. Robert Downey, Jr. and his co-stars have been asked ad nauseum about the potential for another sequel and they've all had varying reactions. But here's a more realistic question: What if it doesn't matter if Robert Downey, Jr. will return for 'Iron Man 4? Marvel, it seems, is already planning for life without their biggest star.
We barely know who the 'Star Trek Into Darkness' villain is (OK, well we pretty much know) - is it possible that at this early stage we've already got a pretty solid idea as to who the 'Star Trek 3' villain will be? Writer/producer Damon Lindelof spoke on the film's red carpet and dropped some information as to who will be facing off against in 'Star Trek 3.'
At this year Oscars, Seth MacFarlane caused quite a controversy as he hosted the ceremony with a number of risque bits and jokes (most notably the "We Saw Your Boobs" song from the opening monologues) but that was exactly what Oscar producers hoped MacFarlane would bring to the normally staid production. The 'Family Guy' creator previously said he has no interest in returning, the producers seemed to have liked the controversy (and the ratings that went with it) and MacFarlane has officially been invited to return to host the 2014 Oscars.
'Star Trek Into Darkness' - perhaps the most mysterious film of the summer - is only about a month away and the mystery will soon be revealed. Today we've got a brand new, ominous 'Star Trek Into Darkness' poster plus 12 hi-res new 'Star Trek Into Darkness' pics to shed a little bit of light on the 'Darkness.' (Get it?...) You can check them all out after the jump.
