Punisher Star Wants To Play Flynn Rider In Live-Action Tangled Remake

The Walt Disney Company has lately made something of an artform out of reimagining its own animated features into (often) billion-dollar live-action films, starting with Alice in Wonderland in 2010 and continuing with Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin, as well as the photorealistic computer animated remake of The Lion King.

A live-action version of Mulan, said to be more faithful to the original Chinese folktale than Disney’s 1998 animated film, is set to premiere this Spring, with Cruella, The Little Mermaid, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Peter Pan & Wendy, The Sword in the Stone, Lilo & Stitch, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Bambi, as well as Jungle Book and Aladdin sequels and possible Tinker Bell and Prince Charming projects, slated to be remade over the coming years.

According to The DisInsider, a potential live-action Rapunzel film has now been added to that extensive list as well, though

Amazon confirms ‘The Lord of the Rings’ series for Nz

Peter Jackson’s ‘Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring’.

Amazon Studios has confirmed it will shoot its The Lord of the Rings series in New Zealand, with pre-production already underway and the shoot to kick off in Auckland in coming months.

“As we searched for the location in which we could bring to life the primordial beauty of the Second Age of Middle-earth, we knew we needed to find somewhere majestic, with pristine coasts, forests, and mountains, that also is a home to world-class sets, studios, and highly skilled and experienced craftspeople and other staff. And we’re happy that we are now able to officially confirm New Zealand as our home for our series based on stories from J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’,” said showrunners and executive producers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay in a statement.

Even Midsommar Star Florence Pugh Was Shook by What She Saw in the Movie

Even Midsommar Star Florence Pugh Was Shook by What She Saw in the Movie
The day before the fourth of July, Herediatary writer-director Ari Aster's new brightly-lit nightmare Midsommar will be unleashed into a theater near you. And from what we've been hearing about the movie lately, it's going to be one wicked ride. Hell, even the movie's lead star Florence Pugh was shaken up by the flick. The Black Widow and The Little Drummer Girl actress took to Twitter to let us all know that she had finally had the chance to sit down and watch the movie, and it gave her a slight bit of trauma.

Specifically, Florence Pugh tweeted this.

"So.. I saw it. I'm currently sat. Staring. Wide-eyed at my food. Midsommar is one helluva ride folks."

So just to keep all of this straight; evidently, Ari Aster's new movie is so damn disturbing and scary that even the people who were there while it was filmed are still

  • Popsugar
Netflix's choose-your-own-path sci-fi adventure Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is officially the internet's new favorite thing - Ok, save for maybe Bird Box.

First Official Image of Dora The Explorer Revealed as Live-Action Movie Begins Filming

Dora's biggest adventure yet starts now, as filming on the live-action movie begins today, we get our first image of the character and new details on the plot. Come inside to learn more!

Today's the start of production on the upcoming live-action Dora The Explorer movie. To mark the occasion, Paramount has released the first look at actress Isabela Moner suited up for the role, along with more details on the rest of cast and story...and I'm not sure what to think.

As a parent, I've watched a Lot of Dora the Explorer. I watched it 6-7 years ago with my son (when he was a toddler) and I'm watching it every day now with my daughter (currently a toddler). While the outfit is a very literal translation from the cartoon, it still feels off. Part of which has to do with the new High School setting, which is

‘Chronicles of Narnia’ Original Screenwriters Warn Against Turning Series Into Another ‘Great Big Fantasy Franchise’

‘Chronicles of Narnia’ Original Screenwriters Warn Against Turning Series Into Another ‘Great Big Fantasy Franchise’
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are franchise guys, and happily so. The screenwriters behind six Marvel Cinematic Universe films — including this week’s much-anticipated new release “Avengers: Infinity War” and its upcoming untitled 2019 sequel, plus all three “Captain America” films — first broke into Hollywood with their “Chronicles of Narnia” films, scripting three different franchise entries before the series sputtered out after 2010’s low-earning “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.”

While Markus and McFeely are no longer on the “Narnia” beat, the beloved C.S. Lewis series is still in the Hollywood mix, and rumors of a “Silver Chair” film adaptation have persisted since October 2013, when the film rights were purchased by the Mark Gordon Company (the original films were made by Walden Media). Screenwriter David Magee was set to write the screenplay, and director Joe Johnston came on board in April 2017.

In January 2016, producer Mark Gordon told Collider that “Silver Chair

‘I Can Only Imagine’ Might Not Be March’s Only Faith-Based Box Office Surprise Hit

‘I Can Only Imagine’ Might Not Be March’s Only Faith-Based Box Office Surprise Hit
Faith-based filmmaking isn’t dead. While the genre has struggled recently to turn out crossover hits (and nothing has topped the $611M take of Mel Gibson’s controversial smash hit “The Passion of the Christ,” still the top earner in the genre 14 years after its release), brothers Andrew and Jon Erwin’s latest film, “I Can Only Imagine,” surprised this weekend’s box office with a $17 million opening take, good enough to push it to third place in a crowded field. Among contemporary Christian community titles, only “Heaven Is for Real” had a better opening, scoring $22 million when it opened in 2014.

Other faith-based movies have recently faltered at the box office, making the success of “I Can Only Imagine” as a bit of an outlier in a struggling — and often independently made — genre. The last big Christian-leaning hit to crack $100 million at the domestic box office was 2010’s “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Netflix is Developing a Series That Explores What Would Happen if Christ Showed Up in the Modern Day World

Netflix is developing a new series called Messiah, which tells a story of Jesus Christ and what it would be like if he showed up in the modern day world. It's certainly an interesting concept. It will explore how society would react to a person who mysteriously appears in the Middle East claiming to be the Messiah and savior of the world.

The 10-episode series is described as a “suspenseful drama exploring the lines among religion, faith and politics", and this is the synopsis that was released:

Messiah will chronicle the modern world’s reaction to a man who first appears in the Middle East creating a groundswell of followers around him claiming he is the Messiah. Is he sent from God or is he a dangerous fraud bent on dismantling the world’s geopolitical order? In ten hour-long episodes, the story unfolds from multiple points of view, including a young CIA agent,

Messiah: Netflix orders new faith-based series

David Crow Kirsten Howard Nov 17, 2017

At Netflix, Messiah will chronicle the world's reaction to a man thousands call "the Messiah" emerging from the Middle East...

The Word of God is good. It is also very lucrative. Ever since the days of silent films, the Bible has been big business in Hollywood. And as we travel ever further into 'peak television’s' new era of streaming, that one constant remains. However, the officially greenlit series Messiah, at least on its premise, promises to be a challenging new take on faith-based content.

First announced as in-development last spring, Netflix officially ordered a 10-episode series of Messiah yesterday, which is likely to be a controversial and highly publicised series when it eventually drops. Created by Michael Petroni, who has developed the project with producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, the series looks to provocatively consider the emergence (or reemergence?) of a figure claiming

Netflix is having a come-to-Jesus moment.

The streamer has ordered to series Messiah, a 10-episode drama “exploring the lines among religion, faith and politics,” from exec producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. The modern-day epic, created by Michael Petroni (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader), is set for release sometime in 2019.

In the series, a mysterious figure surfaces in the Middle East and cultivates a large following who believe him to be the Messiah. This in turn begs the question, “Is he sent from God, or is

Narnia: The Silver Chair Wants Stranger Things Star as The Lead

Narnia: The Silver Chair Wants Stranger Things Star as The Lead
Now that The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair has a filmmaker in place, with Joe Johnston set to direct, the producers are shifting their focus to casting. A new report reveals that Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has been offered the lead role of Jill Pole in The Silver Chair. While it's unclear if the young actress is considering this offer or not, it seems clear that this project will take a much different approach than the first Narnia movie, 2005's The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, which cast then-unknown actors as the young child stars.

Thanks to her breakout role as Eleven on Netflix's Stranger Things, Millie Bobby Brown may be one of the most popular and in-demand child stars in the world, which she has already parlayed into one huge movie role. She joined the cast of Godzilla 2 back in January, which will serve as her feature film debut,

Friend Request movie review: Facebook, a horror story (again)

MaryAnn’s quick take… We’ve literally just seen this, in 2015’s Unfriended. Tedious wannabe scarefest misses the true horrors of Facebook and cultivates a personality-free blandness. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a big horror fan

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

If you’ve seen 2015’s Unfriended — about a bunch of high school students who are tormented online by the evil spirit of a classmate who was recently bullied into suicide — then you’ve already seen Friend Request, which is about a bunch of college students who are tormented online by the evil spirit of a classmate who recently committed suicide as the ultimate passive-aggressive response to being ignored. And in fact, this “new” movie has been languishing unreleased in the Us for a year and a half, perhaps to get more air between it and the earlier film.
