‘Friday The 13th’ Gets Another Reboot

There are a few things pop culture won’t let go of – ironically “Let It Go,” the immortal Cher and apparently the Friday the 13th franchise. How many times can that masked murderer walk too slowly after teens? The answer…however many times movie studios want. Alas, Jason Vorhees will rise again as Paramount is looking to bring him back very soon.

Nothing is known about the next chapter in Vorhees’ adventures, but The Wrap was smart to mention Paramount may lean towards the whole “found footage” angle that’s all the rage in horror right now. It makes sense to go …


Ken Marino Joins The Cast Of The ‘Goosebumps’ Adaptation

It’ll either be the best movie ever or…the best movie ever, but even if Sony’s adaptation of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps is a flop, ‘90s kids will lie and say it was awesome. So here’s to hoping the latest addition to the cast, Ken Marino, won’t make liars out of a lot of people out there.

The funnyman joins Jack Black and Dylan Minnette, and will play Coach Carr – the coach at Greendale High who has to battle some monsters when they take over the school. Doesn’t this already sound amazing? So far that’s all that’s really known about the …


Watch The Trailer for Zach Braff’s ‘Wish I Was Here’

Anyone who was engulfed by the story, the soundtrack and infinite abyss that was Garden State is nothing but excited to see what Zach Braff has come up with for the somewhat followup, Wish I Was Here.

It’s in no way picking up where Sam and Andrew left off in State, but Braff is playing a struggling actor again. Only this time he’s a struggling actor named Aidan in his mid-30s with kids. Wish I Was Here also stars Kate Hudson as his wife, Josh Gad who you may know as Olaf from Frozen as his brother, The


Watch Jake Johnson’s ‘Let’s Be Cops’ Trailer

Was there a lack of buddy cop movies in Hollywood? There must’ve been because Let’s Be Cops was made and the trailer is out now.

While it might not be as great as the 21 Jump Street reboot, it does star New Girl’s Jake Johnson and Damon Waynes Jr. so at least there’s already great chemistry between the two. They play two 30-somethings who haven’t yet reached their potential until one night when they hit up a costume party dressed as cops. Those pseudo uniforms unlock a cascade of good times for the guys, including hooking up with The Vampire


Cheech & Chong Returning To The Big Screen

It’s been over 30 years since Cheech & Chong have been together in theaters, but that’s about to change because their new movie is in the works.

Will this next chapter in our favorite stoners’ lives be about the continuous legalization of pot? Well not exactly, Chong recently told Celeb Stoner, “We’ve had some preliminary meetings. It looks really good. It looks really funny. It will be about us going to a festival called the Burning Joint. All sorts of shenanigans happen. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

The comedy duo are set to start filming this summer …


Nicki Minaj Makes Acting Debut Alongside Cameron Diaz In ‘The Other Woman’

She’s not the star, but Nicki Minaj does play a role in helping Cameron Diaz in the upcoming RomCom The Other Woman.

After Diaz finds out she’s dating a married man, she seeks the advice of a friend – played by Minaj. Other than that the film centers on Diaz’s character teaming up with the wife (Leslie Mann) and the other, younger mistress (Kate Upton) for some much deserved payback. It screams “girl power” as much as a Spice Girls concert in ’97.

This isn’t Minaj’s first time on the big screen since she voiced a character in Ice


‘Jem and the Holograms’ Is Heading Towards The Big Screen

Remember when Josie and the Pussycats was made into a live-action movie and it was the best thing ever? Well, here’s to hoping the same can be done with Jem and the Holograms.

There’s quite the team behind this one including Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions, Scooter Braun Productions and director Jon M. Chu. Yes, that Braun, the man responsible for bringing Justin Bieber across the Canadian border. Let’s not write this Jem thing off just yet though. Bieber was good – at the beginning of his career so as long as this doesn’t spawn sequels, it could be okay.…


New ‘Ghostbusters’ Will Begin Filming In Early 2015

Who ya’ gonna call? Apparently not Ivan Reitman when it comes to directing the next Ghostbusters. He’s stepped down as director but will still play a role as a producer on the long awaited third installment. He also had a good amount to say about the project when he sat down with Deadline.

First off, those who were excited to see the original guys suited up – sorry to burst your bubble but this isn’t exactly picking up where the others left off. This is a reboot of sorts that will usher in a new crop of Ghostbusters. It’s …


Sofia Coppola To Direct Live-Action Version Of ‘The Little Mermaid’

How well will The Little Mermaid translate as a live-action movie? Sofia Coppola is hoping very well. She’s in negotiations to direct the classic fish tale.

Most of us are familiar with The Little Mermaid thanks to the 1989 Disney hit. Ariel’s red hair and every song are stamped permanently into our memories but that doesn’t mean Coppola’s won’t do great. Caroline Thompson, who penned some of the best from Tim Burton including Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas, is working on the script. So it’s very likely this Mermaid will lean towards the dark side – although …


Adam McKay Says There Won’t Be An ‘Anchorman 3′

Those holding on to hope Anchorman would spawn a third, well in the words of “Adele Dazeem,” let it go. Adam McKay is sticking to his guns and assuring the world that Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues… Continued was the final one.

The longer version with a lot more jokes and raunchiness opened last weekend, and it’s the last time fans will see Ron Burgundy on the big screen. McKay told Empire, “It’s done,” adding, “It was great to do it and it was so fun to work with those guys again, but I think that’s it for Ron Burgundy.”…


Could A ‘Minecraft’ Movie Be As Great as ‘Lego Movie?’

The Lego Movie hasn’t even been out a month and it’s close to breaking $200 million at the box office. With that said studios are looking to cash in on the next kids’ game Blockbuster. Sorry, Hungry Hungry Hippos, it’s not your time yet. Warner Bros. is looking to stick with the building aspect by focusing on Minecraft.

Like Lego, the world of Minecraft is inspired by the player – only it’s on a digital landscape instead of your bedroom floor. People who doubt it may want to ask those who’ve bought some 35 million copies of the …


‘The Conjuring 2’ Gets A 2015 Release Date

Those who flocked to theaters for James Wan’s The Conjuring and loved it are in luck because the sequel will be out October 2015.

The first raked in over $130 million at the box office causing not one, but two more movies. The sequel that IMDB has listed as The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist, and a spin-off that’s being filmed right now about that creepy Annabelle doll. Seriously though, Annabelle’s flick may be scarier than both Conjurings combined. Fans of the first will be happy to know Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson will be resuming their roles …
