Some or all of Miramax will likely be sold in the next month

There was a time, back in the 90s, that Miramax was the the vanguard of independent filmmaking, despite being owned by Disney at the time. The studio, founded and run by the Weinstein brothers until 2005, pumped out cultural staples like Se...

It looks like Bond 25's script is getting reworked

James Bond's 25th outing has been hit with a ton of creative snags over the years. From Danny Boyle exiting the production to writers Pervis and Wade being hired, fired, and then rehired, it doesn't seem like a day goes by without something...

Candyman franchise reboot with Jordan Peele confirmed

Remeber Candyman? He's back! In Pog form! No, actually, movie form, though some sweet Candyman Pogs would totally round out my collection of super dated things.  As previous rumors stated MGM has partnered with Monk...

Thankfully the MGM Child's Play reboot is happening

It's very possible that you hadn't heard -- considering that Chucky isn't on very many people's daily radar and it's been delayed years -- that MGM is planning to reboot the Chucky franchise without creator Don Mancini and pr...

Bond distribution rights go to Annapurna

Every studio wants a piece of James Bond. The movies are hits no matter what. They bring in money, and that's why landing the distribution rights to the films was a massive deal with almost every studio out there putting bids in. MGM was lo...

The Next Bond film is slated for 2019

First Red Band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2

Hot Tub Time Machine is an acquired taste. By that I mean it's not particularly funny or interesting, yet folks seem attached to it anyhow. Now that John Cusack has dropped out (I guess once he realized the film really isn't a wholesome 80...

MGM wants Barbershop 3 to exist for some reason

What's with MGM and their fascination with reviving comedies that don't really deserve it? Just as they have done with Hot Tub Time Machine, MGM is currently in negotiations with Ice Cube over Barbershop 3. Let it be known that the last Bar...

Road House is ...sigh... getting a remake

This is only going to get worse so if the idea of a Road House remake already has you pulling out your hair in anger then just stop reading. MGM will indeed be remaking the Patrick Swayze starring Road House, thus confirming they don't...

Addams Family to be rebooted as animated film

One of the fantastically charming things about the two Addams Family movies that came out in the early 90s is that they were live action adaptations of a cartoon, and through that they managed to capture the quirky morbidness of the fa...

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 gets a 2014 release date

While Hot Tub Time Machine may have not been the best comedy, it performed well enough on home video to warrant a sequel. Production on the sequel began last Summer with John Cusack dropping out and Adam Scott filling in as Cusack's son. Sp...

MGM acquires rights to ABE, will turn into feature film

We try to bring you all the awesome short films we can with Flix for Short, but there a lot out there so we definitely don't get them all. One of the ones we missed was a film by British writer/director/VFX artist Rob McCellan called ABE. ...

Next Bond within 3 years, director announced soon

MGM made about as much money as you possible can off of Skyfall so they are all on board to get the next film out the doors as soon as possible as are their investors. That's why the subject of the next Bond film came up on an investor's ph...

MGM wants Hot Tub Time Machine 2 to exist for some reason

Despite being borderline awful (with a few admittedly funny bits from Craig Robinson), Hot Tub Time Machine performed well enough on "home video" that MGM is considering producing a sequel. Right now, talks are extremely early (so there's n...

Dwayne Johnson to star in Brett Ratner's Hercules

Paramount and MGM have finally coughed up money to produce Brett Ratner's adaptation of Hercules: The Thracian Wars comic (which has been in development hell for the past two years). While I have never read the comic itself, I assume it's f...

Metro 2033 movie rights get grabbed, should emulate games

I do a lot of things in my spare time, but reading fiction is not really one of them. I don't hate fiction or anything, I just don't read it. Metro 2033 is no exception to that rule. The Russian sci-fi novel by Dmitri Glukhovsky seems ...

MGM suing Jake LaMotta over Raging Bull II

In a rare case of corporate litigious brutality coinciding with good taste, MGM has filed a complaint against Jake LaMotta, the subject of Scorsese classic Raging Bull and its upcoming, unaffiliated, certain-to-be-worse seque...

Tom Cruise to star in remake of The Magnificent Seven

So it looks like MGM is eyeing a remake of The Magnificent Seven, John Sturges's classic Western. I'd complain about Hollywood continuously remaking movies, but seeing as the original was already a remake of Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, ...

MGM laid off 50 L.A. employees today

MGM filed for bankruptcy over a month ago, so this feels every bit inevitable as it does unfortunate. Today they let go of 50 employees in its Los Angeles departments, though it's not yet confirmed if they unleashed their MGM lions into th...
