New ‘Dora and the Lost City of Gold’ Trailer and Poster Tease Danny Trejo as a Monkey

Paramount Pictures has released a new trailer for Dora and the Lost City of Gold, the live-action film based on Nickelodeon's long-running animated series, Dora the Explorer. James Bobin (Alice Through the Looking Glass) directs a script by Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Matthew Robinson (The Invention of Lying), with Transformers: The Last Knight star Isabela Moner swinging into the title role. This movie is decidedly not for me, but I'm sure kids and those who grew up on Dora the Explorer will get a kick out of it. Most notably, it doesn't appear …

Monster Problems Teams Ariana Greenblatt with Michael Rooker and Dylan O'Brien
Mary Poppins himself Michael Rooker and Dylan O'Brien (The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials) will be teaming up soon for the post-apocalyptic monster movie Monster Problems. If those two bits of casting news weren't enough to pique your interest in the upcoming film, maybe today's addition will. Today we have word that young Gamora actress Ariana Greenblatt is joining in on the fun as well. Greenblatt will be playing a character by the name of Minnow in the Paramount Players motion picture.

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,

Edge of Tomorrow sequel Live Die Repeat and Repeat officially moving ahead

It looks like the stars are finally aligning for the Edge of Tomorrow sequel, with Deadline reporting that Warner Bros. is looking to move forward on the long-rumoured Live Die Repeat and Repeat.

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

Edge of Tomorrow 2 In Development

Alec Bojalad Mar 1, 2019

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

Edge of Tomorrow 2 Is Officially Moving Forward

At long last, Edge of Tomorrow 2 is happening at Warner Bros. This project has been kicked around for some time behind the scenes, with original director Doug Liman, alongside stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, all eager to get a sequel going in the years since the first was released. That's proved to be difficult, but now the studio is finally getting serious about bringing this sequel to life as they've brought on a brand new writer to tackle another round of action-heavy sci-fi shenanigans.

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.

‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Sequel Lands a New Writer as Development Continues

Though a sequel to 2014's sci-fi hit Edge of Tomorrow has been in development pretty much since the movie hit theaters, it's been slow going for director Doug Liman's follow-up film. Matthew Robinson, the co-writer/co-direct behind 2009's The Invention of Lying and the co-writer for the more recent Monster Trucks has apparently turned in a pitch for the sequel that has landed him a screenwriting position on it. He'll have some big shoes to fill considering that the original film was written by Oscar-winner Christopher McQuarrie alongside brothers …

Monster Trucks movie review: what a car-tastrophe

MaryAnn’s quick take… What if “monster trucks” actually meant — wait for it — that there were monsters in the trucks? From an idea by a four-year-old (really), and it shows. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

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.

‘Little Shop Of Horrors’ remake on the way from Greg Berlanti

Little Shop Of Horrors remake on the way from the executive producer of The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow.

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.

Little Shop Of Horrors is getting a movie remake next

Mike Cecchini Dec 8, 2016

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

Newswire: Greg Berlanti to feed the plants with Little Shop Of Horrors remake

Look out, look out, look out, look out, the plant known as Audrey II is coming to devour mankind once again. According to Deadline, Greg Berlanti is going to direct a reboot of Little Shop Of Horrors for Warner Bros. Deadline’s report says that it will be “a fresh version of the 30-year old Frank Oz-directed film,” which in turn was based on Howard Ashman and Alan Menken’s Off-Broadway musical adapted from a 1960 Roger Corman movie. Matthew Robinson, whose credits include The Invention Of Lying, is tasked with the new screenplay.

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 ...

Little Shop of Horrors Remake Coming from Arrow Creator Greg Berlanti

Little Shop of Horrors Remake Coming from Arrow Creator Greg Berlanti
After spending the past six years developing and producing hit shows such as Arrow and Blindspot, filmmaker Greg Berlanti is returning to the big screen. The filmmaker is set to direct a new reboot of Little Shop of Horrors, which will be a musical, like the 1986 classic directed by Frank Oz. The story first originated on the big screen with Roger Corman's 1960 cult classic, before it was re-imagined as an off-Broadway musical by Howard Ashman, who wrote the screenplay adaptation for the 1986 film.

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.
