    'Fraggle Rock' Director Cory Edwards Says Project Is In A "Deep Coma," Has Moved On

    Well, the writing on the wall for this was there last summer. A big screen take on "Fraggle Rock" has been in the works for a long time now, but the production hit a bump last summer when writer/director Cory Edwards revealed that he was "struggling to stay in control of my own movie" and that The W...

    CinemaCon: New MPAA Chief Chris Dodd Makes First State of the Industry Speech

    Not that former Senator Chris Dodd, with his impressive shock of white hair, can be considered an expert on Hollywood after just nine days on the job as the new CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America.

    WB Admits First 'Green Lantern' Trailer Was Terrible; Michael Clarke Duncan In Talks For Kilowog

    It's going to be a spandex-filled summer. There are four superhero movies on the way -- "Thor," "X-Men: First Class," "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Green Lantern" -- and most everybody can agree that out of all of them, the latter has received the worst buzz so far. A trailer dropped last fall and it wasn't promising. Sporting a dorky tone, cheesy special effects and nothing in the way of a hook, it was met with a collective shrug and then quickly forgotten and there has been little in the way of marketing since. However, Warner Bros. admits they got it wrong, are licking their wounds and are planning an assault of marketing in th...

    Watch This: Suzi Yoonessi's "Futurestates" Episode "Spring of Sorrow"

    Having recently championed filmmaker Suzi Yoonessi for her recently released feature, "Dear Lemon Lima," I looked forward to her contribution to the "Futurestates" web series (which I also showcased in my recent Cinematical SXSW shorts roundup). Titled, "Spring of Sorrow," it features another minor appearance by Beth Grant, a favorite underrated character actress of mine, and like "Lima" incorporates a lot of doodle type drawings. I'll admit that the narrative, about a little girl searching for water in a parched near-future, doesn't grab me as much as Yoonessi's feature did, and I'm not completely down for the global warming angle (I see it ...

    Danny McBride Looking To Direct; Could Helm Any Number Of The Rough House Projects In Development

    Comedian Calls The 'L.A.P.I.' Detective Project A Mix Of 'Chinatown & 'The Long Goodbye'Exclusive: Danny McBride is first and foremost known as a comic actor, and these days he's perhaps best known as Kenny Powers, the shameless and insufferable former professional baseball pitcher on HBO's "Eastbound & Down." But McBride is also a writer, penning "The Foot Fist Way," which essentially was his calling card into Hollywood; many episodes for "Eastbound & Down," which he is a creator on; and "Your Highness," his upcoming medieval stoner comedy co-starring James Franco, Natalie Portman and Zooey Deschanel and directed by David Gordon Green ("Pine...
