    John Singleton May Take The Director's Seat For 'Tupac'

    It has been a long time since John Singleton has made a film that lived up to his early work like "Boyz N The Hood" or "Higher Learning." His last effort was the dismal and lamebrained Taylor Lautner vehicle "Abduction," and while for a brief moment it seemed he would be taking on "Straight Outta Compton," the biopic of N.W.A., he was quickly pushed out with a different trio of filmmakers in the running for the gig (apparently Craig Brewer is favored though it will depend on how well (or not) "Footloose" does this weekend). But the director has rebounded and is now circling another hip hop story that he is just as well suited for as the N.W.A...

    'John Carter' Had A Lengthy 18 Day Reshoot To Improve & Correct Story Issues

    Movie Will Need To Make At Least $700 Million To Green Light A Sequel"Reshoots should be mandatory," director Andrew Stanton recently told the New Yorker in an extensive profile. He said this while on the set of his first live action movie "John Carter" during an extensive 18 day reshoot this past April. While the term "reshoot" is generally shorthand used to denote a troubled production, for Stanton, who comes from the world of Pixar where films are storyboarded in full, critiqued, broken down and retooled numerous times before animation even begins, it's a luxury that he feels every production should take advantage of. In the case of Pixar,...

    Jim Carrey Joins 'Burt Wonderstone' With Steve Carell

    Carell's 'Imagine' With Al Pacino Put Into Turnaround At Warner Bros.Up until now, the on screen pairings between Steve Carell and Jim Carrey have been fairly limited. Of course, Carell featured in "Bruce Almighty" where he was the unfortunate victim of Carrey's God-powered tomfoolery (and of course, his character was spun off into "Evan Almighty" which the less said, the better). They also both took voice roles in the animated "Horton Hears a Who!" a couple years back and irony of ironies, Carrey made a (pretty lacklustre) cameo appearance on the season finale of "The Office" last spring, of course, by this point Carell had exited the show. ...
