In a new report about the state of affairs at Fox with the latest Disney merger news, it reveals that Fox Animation has been developing a Family Guy movie that will contain live-action elements. This certainly sounds like something that series creator Seth MacFarlane would dare to pull off. In addition, it was also revealed that a Bob's Burger feature-length film is being developed as well along with The Simpsons Movie 2. However, these plans could be put into jeopardy with the Fox and Disney merger. According to people close to the projects, the Family Guy movie will contain live-action elements, which sounds pretty interesting. It would be the first time on the big screen for the wildly popular series, and it's something that fans have asked about for years. The Simpsons Movie didn't come out until 2007, and it was teased for years, so the idea of a Family Guy movie at this late stage of the game is not surprising. The new report states. While the idea of a Family Guy movie is … [Read more...] about Family Guy Movie in the Works with Live-Action Elements?
Variety is reporting that the fourth season of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will also be its last. This fills me with a small amount of sadness as the show is funny and has been a great comedy. However, season 3 was not that great (I'm hopeful for season 4) and I'd hate for this show to go on forever and be one of the many shows that runs for too long. Of course, in addition to the fourth season being the final season, reports say that the series will be a movie developed by Netflix in conjunction with Universal Television. I imagine the finale will have Titus get closure with Mikey, whether that's getting back with him or finally moving on, Kimmy will finally be able to drop the Reverend and live a semi-normal life, Lillian will finally find happiness, and Jacqueline will find success on her own. Ellie Kemper stars as the titular Kimmy Schmidt, Tituss Burgess is Titus Andromedon, Jane Krakowski plays Jacqueline, and Carol Kane rounds out the main cast as Lillian. The series was … [Read more...] about THE UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT May End With Season 4 and a Movie
Spike Lee may be getting into the superhero game. The filmmaker is circling to direct a movie for Sony based on the Marvel character Nightwatch, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker is writing the script based on the character, an African-American scientist first introduced in the comics in 1993. The studio declined to comment. The entertainment site That Hashtag Show first reported the news. Nightwatch debuted in Web of Spider-Man No. 97, the alter-ego of Dr. Kevin Trench, a man who discovered his own corpse wearing a futuristic suit of armor that he went on to steal and wear while fighting crime and trying to discover the origins of his alternate self and his new costume. (Time-travel was the answer to the former — Trench would later be thrown back in time, dying before he could talk to his past self, although he’d later recover — whereas the costume’s origins are far too complicated to explain … [Read more...] about Spike Lee Circling Sony Superhero Movie ‘Nightwatch’

When Universal releases Fifty Shades Freed on Feb. 9, it will close the final chapter on the S&M trilogy that already has earned nearly $1 billion worldwide. The third installment marks a happily-ever-after ending for kinky couple Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. But it also may prove to be the finale for studio-financed sex-fueled films.As Hollywood begins to navigate the #MeToo landscape, one of the first casualties appears to be big-screen erotica. In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, studios are steering clear of sex.The Bradley Cooper-helmed A Star Is Born remake at Warner Bros. has morphed from steamy to something far more chaste, say insiders.
