Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and David E. Kelley are re-teaming for the newest installment, with Kidman, Witherspoon, and Kelley also set to executive produce. Kelley will write all […]
If initial reports on Thursday are true, fans of HBO‘s critically acclaimed, award-winning limited series Big Little Lies are going to be pretty excited over news regarding a second season. TV Line is reporting that sources confirm exclusively that HBO is looking to start production on Season 2 in Spring 2018. HBO declined to officially […]

Oprah, Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and more were on hand at today’s event. The movie is due out March 9, 2018, and Disney has graced us with a trailer […]
Sing might have all of the elements to make a good kids movie but in a year that set the bar so high it is barely passable. Title: Sing Director: Christopher Lourdelet and Garth Jennings Summary: A koala named Buster Moon has one final chance to restore his theater to its former glory by producing […]
A second trailer for Illumination’s new animated movie Sing has been released and it expands on why the singing competition is taking place. I saw the first trailer in the theater and could see the draw. Here we have an animated feature for kids that also pulls in the drama associated with shows like American […]
Written and directed by Son of Rambow and The Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy‘s Garth Jennings, Universal and Illumination‘s upcoming Sing shows what happens when the animals get a chance to become stars at the once great theater of Buster Moon, voiced by Matthew McConaughey. As the new trailer shows, the animals come from all walks of life, but may have […]
While appearing on Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe (via Slashfilm), actress Reese Witherspoon addressed the possibility of a third film in the Legally Blonde series, in which she plays sorority girl-turned-lawyer Elle Woods. The first feature spawned a sequel, a direct-to-video sequel and a musical. “A lot of writers over the years have come up […]
According to Deadline, the 1999 film Cruel Intentions may be getting the television treatment as NBC has ordered a pilot script from the film’s writer/director Roger Kumble. The original film, based on the French novel Les Liaisons dangereuses — which was also adapted in 1988 as Dangerous Liaisons — centered on well-to-do teenagers in New […]
Female lead comedies are becoming more and more common, but finding one without Melissa McCarthy is rare… here we have a trailer for the new film Hot Pursuit starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. From Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and New Line Cinema comes the comedy Hot Pursuit, starring Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line, […]
Directed by the regularly impressive Atom Egoyan.
Sorry to have to drag your attention away from those amazing American Hustle posters, but here's some casting news that also happened today.
A crime thriller directed by Atom Egoyan which dramatises the story of the West Memphis Three.
The man has certainly got options.
Some years ago, I read Cameron Crowe‘s screenplay Deep Tiki, while Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon were attached to star. It was an unusual story, mixing military misadventure with Hawaiian folklore, but it had that great Cameron Crowe relationship writing to help make it accessible for a wide audience. Still, that version never happened. I […]
Tom Hardy vs. Chris Pine.
It was looking like Universal’s contingency plan for a Bridesmaids 2 was coming in to play now that Kristen Wiig had made it pretty clear she didn’t want to return for a do-over. The studio’s new idea was to focus the story on Melissa McCarthy‘s character. But here’s what McCarthy had to say about such […]
The Singapore office of 20th Century Fox have released an “international” trailer for McG’s This Means War. It runs considerably shorter than the US cut, and has a slightly different emphasis. I still can’t understand how we’re supposed to sympathise with or root for Reese Witherspoon‘s character at all. If the script is really up […]
So the big news today (for a given value of “big”) is that a forthcoming Reese Witherspoon comedy fantasy film called Wish List has acquired a screenwriting team: Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, best known for writing the Kung Fu Panda films and many episodes of King of the Hill. Here’s the premise of the […]
The basic underlying premise of This Means War is something of a dodgy one: two manly men are going to fight over a woman who is two-timing them and, in the process, incur the kind of collateral damage that puts lives at risk (or potentially snuffs them out, but I don’t think they’ll go there). […]
Reese Witherspoon is out, and Kelly MacDonald is in. That’s not copy for a celeb magazine’s Hot or Not “thermometer of the week”, it’s the casting news on Pixar’s upcoming folk-tale, Brave. And it’s not the first big switcheroo the film has seen, either. The project swapped directors last year, with Brenda Chapman leaving and […]
