Eddie Murphy’s nostalgia wave is complete with his return to Saturday Night Live, Coming to America sequel and now, the fourth film of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise. Netflix and Paramount, who owns the IP, reached a one-time license deal with an option for a sequel for Murphy and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, according to Deadline […]
It looks like NBC’s unexpected loss is Charter Communications‘ gain in a major way, with the media company giving a 13-episode series order for Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba-starrer L.A.’s Finest. Set to premiere in 2019 exclusively on Spectrum, former CSI: NY showrunner Pam Veasey will serve as series showrunner and will executive produce alongside Alba, Union, Sonnier […]
Looks like NBC is interested in telling the further adventures of Bad Boys II‘s Special Agent Syd Burnett, with the network giving a formal pilot production green light to an as-yet-untitled movie spinoff series starring Gabrielle Union. Written by The Blacklist writers-producers Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier, the project would focus on Union’s Burnett, who was […]
After what Deadline: Hollywood is exclusively reporting was a “very competitive situation” in securing writer/director David Ayer‘s latest spec script, cable network Starz has secured the rights to family crime drama script Family Crimes with a production commitment. Though the project has not been given an official “green light,” expectations are high that Starz will […]
Beverly Hills Cop nearly became a vehicle for Sylvester Stallone. But when his ideas clashed with the action-comedy premise producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer were interested in — and too expensive — he parted ways and eventually made Cobra based on his vision of the concept. The eventual Beverly Hills Cop became a sensation with star […]
You’ll have to wait an extra year to see Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow again. Disney, who was originally eyeing a summer 2016 release, has slotted the fifth installment of their Pirates of the Caribbean franchise in for July 7, 2017. At the moment, that weekend will belong to the Pirates alone, but it […]
An original thriller and two 80s franchises are on their way.
After nearly 40 years of practice, Jerry Bruckheimer has become very good at cutting out the nonsense.
Concept artist Keron Grant has been posting a few samples of his work on the cancelled proposal, and they do look nice.
Plus bonus video Q&A with the filmmakers.
Disney, Jerry Bruckheimer and Johnny Depp may have Lone Rangers as well as Carribean Pirates in the stock cupboard now, but don’t expect them to retire the original line any time soon. Indeed, we’ve known for some time that regular Pirates co-writer Terry Rossio has written a draft for movie five all by himself. What […]
Filming on Gore Verbinski’s Lone Ranger movie has been trucking along for a couple of weeks now, but it’s still pretty early for a first look at the characters. Jerry Bruckheimer’s getting down with the digital age though, man, and he’s tweeted the first official image from the film. Very stylised. Has this picture been […]
It's a big day for Disney to add extra words onto their movie titles.
For over a year now there have been talks of a sequel to Top Gun getting ready to go, but if you thought this project was dead in the water then Tom Cruise is here to correct you. In a video interview with MTV News, Cruise hinted that he, Jerry Bruckheimer and Tony Scott are […]
After eighteen months of development, Stephen Soderbergh has decided not to direct Warner Bros. do-over of The Man From UNCLE. The director and studio have apparently come to a parting of the ways over casting and the budget. Apparently Soderbergh was keen on either Michael Fassbender or Joel Kinnaman for the lead role, at least […]
Worried that Pirates of the Caribbean 4 might not wrap up conclusively, or leave dangling threads? Worse still, are you concerned that its success (I think it’s going to be a smash) would lead to another pair of intertwined, cliffhanger-cleaved sequels like the shot back-to-back Pirates 2 and 3? Well, Jerry Bruckheimer has promised that […]
The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides trailer you’re about to watch hasn’t been released yet. Which is to say, I’m writing this just over six hours before it goes live. Planning ahead. As this post goes live, so does the trailer. Seeing as I won’t be able to see this before you do, […]
If all you were buying the Pirates of the Caribbean “first trilogy” boxset of Blu-rays for was to see the new Pirates 4 sneak peak, then I guess the only reason you’d buy it now would be to see the new Pirates 4 sneak peak in 1080p HD. Here’s the clip in a YouTube format: […]
New footage, new mucking about, new Pirates of the Caribbean featurette. It’s a good one, for the fans, because it fills in a few of the blanks in the info we’ve already received and goes some way to giving us a bit of plot set-up. UPDATE: Pulled by request of Mickey Mouse and Company. Shame, […]
Jerry Bruckheimer tonight took to Twitter and invited his 39,816 followers to check out his newly redesigned official site. Who am I to say no to Big JB? Flicking around JBFilms, the first notable thing I spotted was an entry for The Lone Ranger. While there were no new details, there was a logo for […]
