    Family Film Time: 'Stretch Armstrong' & 'Ringling Brothers' Get Writers

    Ever wonder what happened to that “Stretch Armstrong” movie that was tossed from Universal in their great purge of 2011? Well, Relativity picked it up, dropped the long attached Taylor Lautner and set it up with an April 11, 2014 release date. And now it's time to get a script.

    Female Reviewer Gets Attacked for Avengers Review

    While I am not usually that interested in boycentric blockbusters, I am very into seeing The Avengers.  I want to see how an open feminist man like Joss Whedon makes a big budget Hollywood film.  Will the women be more than window dressing?   Too bad The Avengers only has one female lead -- Scarlett Johansson -- and she wears a skin tight suit, but hey maybe she has some good lines and kicks ass like Whedon's Buffy.

    Justin Lin To Direct Big-Screen Adaptation Of David Henry Hwang's Play 'Chinglish'

    Whether or not you're a fan of the "Fast and the Furious" franchise, director Justin Lin has been becoming more and more steadied and confident since taking the keys to the franchise with 2006's "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift." Still, opportunities outside of said franchise have ultimately fallen apart due to Lin's commitment to the "Fast and the Furious" films, with Lin dropping out from "The Highlander" remake and basically stepping away from the next "Terminator" sequel (though Lin might be able to go back should the scheduling work out). Lin had to drop both projects because of "Fast Six," but Lin is setting up several possible projects to follow, one of which could be the big screen adaptation of David Henry Hwang's play "Chinglish."

    I Heart "Take This Waltz"

    After debuting at the Toronto Film Festival last fall, Sarah Polley's "Take This Waltz" had its US premiere at Tribeca this Sunday.  Highly anticipated after Polley's acclaimed directorial debut "Away From Her," the film was intially met with a considerably more mixed response. And now having seen it, I get why. The film is clearly far from perfect.  Some scenes feel very out of place and unnecessary. The tone is uneven. The dialogue occasionally overwritten.

    'The Help' Director Tate Taylor To Helm Big Screen Redo Of Brit Miniseries 'The Jury'

    Typically when your most recent film racks up a couple of Oscar nominations and an outstanding box office take, studios have their hands out practically begging you to bring your dream project to their doorsteps. Helmer Tate Taylor hasn’t exactly followed that path after his success with 2011’s “The Help,” even after the multiple awards which included Octavia Spencer’s win at the Oscars for Best Supporting Actress. Taylor has been slow to line up his next directorial effort, passing on longtime friend and actress Melissa McCarthy’s R-rated road trip comedy “Tammy,” with brief word back in August that Taylor was in early talks to direct an adaptation of the 2002 novel "Peace Like A River" for DreamWorks and Warner Brothers.
