    Comic Adaptation 'Lore' Starring Dwayne Johnson Still Moving, Just Not With Director Barry Sonnenfeld

    After scoring a surprisingly solid financial return for “Men In Black 3,” Warner Bros. had tapped that film's director Barry Sonnenfeld to helm the Dwayne Johnson-starring graphic novel adaptation “Lore” because hey, why not? After clashing with the studio over the budget, Sonnefeld has dropped out ...

    Barry Sonnenfeld To Direct Supernatural 'Lore' With Dwayne Johnson

    For the five of you that are going to wonder.... No, this is not remake of Cate Shortland's recent post-WWII drama, but instead is Warner Bros. upcoming graphic novel adaptation that has Dwayne Johnson attached to star. And now, it's locking down a director.

    Barry Sonnenfeld To Direct DC Comics' 'The Metal Men' For Warner Bros.

    It looks like with Batman ending, Warner Bros. are getting very serious about exploiting the DC Comics catalog they've mostly been sitting on. Earlier this month it was revealed that last year the studio had hired "Gangster Squad" writer Will Beall to pen "Justice League," an...

    Review: 'Men In Black 3' Is A Surprisingly Decent Return To Form For The Flagging Franchise

    Much has been made of the herculean efforts it took to get “Men in Black 3” to the big screen – the constant rewrites, the lengthy hiatus, Will Smith’s giant trailers pissing off much of lower Manhattan – so the mere fact that “Men in Black 3” is watchable at all is something of a pleasant surprise....

    Director Barry Sonnenfeld Says Ending Of 'Men Of Black 3' Leaves Room To Reboot The Franchise

    After a difficult, fractured production that left many wondering if "Men In Black III" was gearing up to be a "Heaven's Gate"-style summer disaster, it seems everyone came through and put something together for the third and final chapter in the series. Or is it? With Sony re...

    Barry Sonnenfeld Says Shooting 'Men In Black 3' Without A Third Act Ready Might Have Been "A Really Stupid Idea"

    If you've been following the production of "Men In Black III" to any small degree, you'll know it has been somewhat of a debacle. Despite it being a decade since the last outing for Agent J and Agent K in a vastly inferior sequel to the original movie, it was decided that a third o...

    Watch: Josh Brolin Nails His Tommy Lee Jones Impression In First Trailer For 'Men In Black 3'

    Of all the big tentpole pictures of next year, none seems to have had a more troubled production than "Men in Black 3." The first film in the series, in 1997, was an enjoyable sci-fi comedy, but it took five years to get a sequel together,  and when "Men In Black 2" hit thea...

    'A Serious Man' Star Michael Stuhlbarg Joins The Still-Filming 'Men in Black 3'

    The ugly portrait of Hollywood stupidity and hubris -- "hey, we'll figure out the script on set, no problem!" -- is a slightly antiquated one given the rise of successful improvisation, not only in comedy which was the norm, but big-budget narrative (see "Iron Man" where Jon Favreau and co. literally figured out scenes moments before they were shot), but can still be occasionally framed as a cautionary tale. See the latest example: "Men In Black 3" or "Men In Black 3D" whatever you want to call it. Sony's very expensive tentpole revival 10 years after the fact ("MIB2" was released in 2002) has been shooting on and off since December and is st...
