The Invention of Lying (2009)
Monster Problems is a coming of age movie about a young man living in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by monsters. Michael Rooker will play Clyde, an expert hunter who teaches Joel Dawson (O'Brien) how to survive the Monster Apocalypse. No word on how Greenblatt's Minnow fits into the story at this time. That said, I've joked that this movie is shaping up to be Zombieland... With Monsters! and if that's true,
According to the trade, screenwriter Matthew Robinson (The Invention of Lying) has been brought in the work on the script for the follow-up to the acclaimed 2014 sci-fi with the intention of reuniting director Doug Liman with stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt.
Live Die Repeat and Repeat has been in the works for several years now and came close to going into production in 2017, only to stall due to Blunt’s commitments to Mary Poppins Returns.
Although a scriptwriter is on board, it’s not yet clear what sort of timeframe we could expect for Live Die Repeat and Repeat. Although Blunt only has the recently announced A Quiet Place sequel on her slate at present, Cruise
Warner Bros. has decided to bring back Edge of Tomorrow with Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt and the original director, Doug Liman.
Looks like Edge of Tomorrow's tagline (and eventual alternate title) "Live. Die. Repeat." was rather prescient.
After years of rumors and hopeful quotes from the original's stars, The Hollywood Reporter has officially confirmed that Warner Bros. is developing a sequel to the beloved 2014 sci-fi action film starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt.
According to THR's report, Cruise and Blunt are slated to return as is the original film's director, Doug Liman. All three's involvement is contingent upon them liking the final script for Edge of Tomorrow 2. The first film's script was penned by Christopher McQuarrie (Cruise's Mission: Impossible buddy), and the Brothers Butterworth (Jez and John-Henry - two British-sounding lads if there ever were two). The Edge of Tomorrow 2 script is currently in the
According to a new report, Matthew Robinson is writing a new script for the studio after pitching a take they really liked. Previously, Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse were brought in to tackle a possible version of Edge of Tomorrow 2 that eventually stalled out. Emily Blunt actually stated last year while promoting A Quiet Place that the sequel was going to get a new script.

According to Deadline, Matthew Robinson (The Invention Of Lying) pitched a take to the studio and they apparently loved it, because he has been hired to write the script. I assume this involves the story that has been teased in the past. Director Doug Liman, Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, are all expected to return.
Liman previously revealed that the film would be called Live Die Repeat and Repeat and he also said that he likes the story for the sequel more than the first film
As confirmed by Deadline, Warner Bros. has hired “The Invention of Lying” co-director and co-writer Matthew Robinson to pen the screenplay after falling in love with his pitch for the sequel. At this point, neither Cruise nor Blunt are attached, and the same goes for Liman, but the intention is to bring back all three for the next film. According to Deadline, “The stars won’t make deals until they see a script to their liking, but they are all in the loop and Liman will develop it with the writer.
Cruise’s character, a public relations officer with no training, is brought to the front and finds himself caught in a time loop that resurrects him each time he is killed by the aliens. He is mentored by a tough Special Forces soldier (Blunt) who teaches him the necessary fighting skills, and learn from his previous frequent deaths until he is able to start winning. Based on the Hiroshi Sakurazaka Japanese graphic novel All You Need Is Kill, the original
Warner Bros. is developing a sequel to the Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt sci-fi movie and has brought aboard writer Matthew Robinson to develop the script, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Edge of Tomorrow filmmaker Doug Liman, Cruise and Blunt are expected to return, dependent on Robinson delivering a script they like. Robinson co-directed and co-wrote the 2009 Ricky Gervais comedy The Invention of Lying and was one of the screenwriters of the 2016 movie Monster Trucks.
Frequent Cruise collaborator Christopher McQuarrie wrote the script to the original Edge of Tomorrow, with credited screenwriters Jez Butterworth and ...
Stapleton was known throughout Massachusetts for over 25 years for his work in local radio and television, most recently as Wbz’s traffic reporter. But Stapleton, who was an avid movie fan, also built a career as a bit-role actor in movies and TV shows set in the Northeast, including several major recent Oscar contenders.
Among those credits include a role as a police officer in the 2016 Best Picture winner “Spotlight.” He also played a fire marshall in a crucial scene in “Manchester by the Sea,” in which he speaks with Casey Affleck’s character after the fire that sends him spiraling into depression. He also had bit roles in “Mystic River,” “R.I.P.D.” and “The Invention of Lying.”

I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
What if “monster trucks” actually meant — wait for it — that there were monsters in the trucks? Cute monsters, of course. Nice monsters. (Duh! Nobody likes bad monsters.) The kind of monsters that a boy could be friends with and drive around with and do daring deeds with. Wouldn’t that be cool?
A monster in a truck is the least ridiculous thing amidst a story that is often illogical and morally hugely problematic.
Apparently — this will shock you — Monster Trucks was developed from an idea by former Paramount president Adam Goodman’s four-year-old son. Seriously. They didn’t actually
Cult man-eating plant comedy film Little Shop of Horrors is to get another remake, three decades after it was filmed as a movie musical featuring Steve Martin in 1986.
According to Deadline, a new version is in the works at Warner Bros, with Greg Berlanti on board as director. Berlanti directed the 2010 romcom Life as We Know It, starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel, but is better known as the writer and producer of a string of TV projects, including Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl. Matthew Robinson, who co-wrote and co-directed The Invention of Lying with Ricky Gervais, is writing the script.
More on the Little Shop Of Horrors remake below.
Greg Berlanti is to tackle a Little Shop Of Horrors remake. If you’re now aware of the name, Greg is behind some of the most successful modern-day comic book TV series, including The Flash, Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl.
The news was release as an exclusive from trade blog Deadline.
Berlanti will direct the film from a screenplay by Matthew Robinson (The Invention of Lying, In Search of Humans). The property was originally low-budget 1960 black comedy film The Little Shop of Horrors, directed by Roger Corman, and then an off-broadway musical in the 1980s with music by Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman, which was then turned into a 1986 American rock musical horror comedy film directed by Frank Oz.
The Flash and Arrow executive producer is to direct a big screen remake of Little Shop Of Horrors...
Greg Berlanti is determined to remain the busiest man in Hollywood, it seems. Aside from serving as executive producer on all four of the CW superhero shows, he's also about to debut Riverdale on TV in January, and there's still Blindspot on NBC. Berlanti has been flirting with the big screen lately, notably with plans to direct a Booster Gold movie for Warner Bros. So what's one more project, right?
In this case, that project would be a remake of Little Shop Of Horrors. Now, depending on your age or your taste, Little Shop Of Horrors can mean a few things. It's either the low-budget (even by his standards) Roger Corman flick from 1960 (notable, in part, for a very young Jack Nicholson as a masochistic dental patient) about a
So what does a 21st-century Little Shop movie mean? Well, they are probably going to CGI the shit out of Audrey II for one. The one possibly positive change they could make to the 1986 film is to restore the musical’s original, more gruesome ending in which Audrey and Seymour are both eaten. The circumstances ...
Deadline reports that this will be a "fresh version" of the 1986 musical, which will be written by Matthew Robinson (The History of Lying). The original story followed a young man named Seymour, who works at a flower store. He takes a plant home to raise as his own, only to discover that it feeds on human flesh, forcing Seymour to kill others in order to keep his plant alive.
