    Rob Thomas Reveals Behind-The-Scenes Doc In The Works, Says He Considered Making 'Veronica Mars' As "Cool Noir"

    After Warner Bros. promised to back a "Veronica Mars" movie if fans raised $2 million within a month and the Kickstarter campaign proved more than successful (it currently sits at $3.6 million raised), there is no official word on whether the studio will help fund the film (they have agreed to distr...

    Rumor: Christopher Nolan In Talks To Oversee 'Justice League,' Christian Bale To Return As Batman

    In every interview he did last year -- including our interview with him from December -- Christopher Nolan maintained that his take on Bruce Wayne and Batman was over with “The Dark Knight Rises.” Now, however, Latino Review (via Forbes) is reporting that Warn...

    Tim Burton Now Officially Out Of Ideas, Considering Live-Action 'Pinocchio' With Robert Downey Jr. As Geppetto

    We are not, by any stretch of the imagination, Tim Burton haters. One very senior Playlist member of staff considers "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" one of the greatest movies ever made. The rest of us have our favorites: "Beetlejuice," "Edward Scissorhands," "Ed Woo...

    Warner Bros. Hires 'Wrath Of The Titans' Writers To Pen 'Clash Of The Titans 3'

    With "Immortals" landing next week, "Wrath of the Titans" next spring and "300: Battle of Artemisia" arriving the year after that, you'd think that might be enough buff dudes yelling for the next little while. But apparently not, as Warner Bros. is banking on the fact you're gonna want to see more m...

    Warner Bros. Revives Harper Franchise Made Famous By Paul Newman With 'The Galton Case'

    While 7,772 petitioners are still waiting for that “Veronica Mars” movie (Warner Bros. is apparently just going to ignore $80,000 in potential box office receipts), Joel Silver is moving on with his life by producing “The Galton Case,” a Ross Macdonald mystery novel about private detective Lew Archer. 'Galton' is the eighth book in a series of novels about Archer. Why not start with any of the first seven tomes? It’s either that one through seven are really bad, or the eighth one is just that good. Regardless, Warner Bros. has acquired rights to the entire series (maybe they’ll work their way backwards), and they’re hoping to adapt the novels...

    Could 'The Scorpio Races' Be The Next 'Twilight' Or 'Hunger Games'? Warner Bros. Developing

    Let's face it, Summit Entertainment continues to make films because of the insane profits from the "Twilight" franchise. The three films already released from the franchise have grossed a combined $1.8 billion worldwide from theatrical releases alone, and that doesn't include DVD and all the film licensing the company also has a meaty stake in. The success of the series showed a massive untapped potential in teenagers and the young adult audience (that wasn't the "Harry Potter" crowd) and studios took notice immediately. While, in the three years that have passed (the first film was released in 2008), not one studio has released a viable comp...

    Warner Bros. Pulls A Disney, Waves Wand To Make All 'Harry Potter' DVDs Disappear On Dec. 29th

    For a while now, Disney has employed a home video strategy that has paid off in spades. The studio's "vault" system makes titles available for a short window of time on home video, before they are pulled from stores and kept locked up for years until Disney decides to re-release it to great fanfare and even greater sales. This fall the studio tried a new tactic, a 3D converted theatrical re-release before the home video bow. The result? A nearly $100 million domestic haul for "The Lion King (in 3D)" before it's latest BluRay bow and a huge wake-up call to the rest of the industry who suddenly realized there is all kinds of money to be made fr...

    ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Will Be The Wachowskis Next Film, Shooting To Start Spring 2012

    First cropping up in the middle of the summer, the mysterious "Jupiter Rising" (now being called "Jupiter Ascending") was added to the already lengthy list of movies being eyed by The Wachowskis. And since 2008's eyeball-melting "Speed Racer," they've certainly had no shortage of movies to choose from. While "Cloud Atlas" is now in front of cameras, “Hood,” an “urban retelling” of the Robin Hood mythology with Will Smith sought to star, and the R-rated Iraq War gay romance picture “CN-9” (aka “Cobalt Neutral 9”) were also tossed around as possibilities. But the former sounds, frankly, pretty terrible and latter is not going to get financing f...

    Warner Bros. Aiming For February/March 2012 Start On 'Akira,' Garrett Hedlund Frontrunner To Star

    After some minor drama, which saw long-attached helmer Albert Hughes bail on the gestating "Akira" remake this spring, the project came back to the life in the middle of the summer when "Unknown" and "Orphan" director Jaume Collet-Serra came aboard. Things then went quiet on the project, but once ag...
