Jean Shepard’s book ‘In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash’ inspired the 1983 film ‘A Christmas Story.’ The film did well upon release, but in the intervening years it’s become a holiday classic. So much so that it inspired a sequel in 1994 (‘It Runs in the Family’), and now the “official” sequel ‘A Christmas Story 2.’
If you were a child of the 1980′s, chances are that you love Eddie Murphy. You can probably recite much of his stand up from his special ‘Delirious’ (“Lemonade… that cool refreshing drink”) or bits from ‘Trading Places’ or ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ by heart. And though Eddie Murphy has spent much of the last two decades disappointing fans on the big screen, it looks like he may be taking his biggest franchise to the small screen.
Earlier this year, Universal was so high on ‘Snow White and the Huntsman‘ that they hired David Koepp to draft a sequel before the first film was even released. The film ended up doing $154 Million domestic and nearly $400 Million worldwide (on a $170 Million budget), so a sequel made sense. Then it came out that Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Sanders had an affair. And now Koepp has left the sequel, Universal is saying that Stewart won’t be back and they’re talking about focusing on Chris Hemsworth‘s Huntsman.
If you want to know the inspiration for the TV show ‘ALF‘ all you have to know is that it came out in 1986 and that its name is short for “Alien Life Form.” But it’s fair to say the ‘E.T. : The Extra-Terrestrial’ knock-off was a hit and ran for four seasons, launched an animated spin-off, and TV movies. Now it’s going to be turned into a feature film.
After a five year run on ‘America’s Got Talent,’ Sharon Osbourne has cited irreconcilable differences with NBC, after she claims they wouldn’t hire her son Jack for another she because he has multiple sclerosis. She is said to be leaving the show at the end of this season, even though she is still under contract.
Gore Vidal, the writer of such novels as ‘Myra Breckinridge,’ plays such as ‘The Best Man,’ and screenwriter on such films as ‘Suddenly Last Summer’ and ‘Caligula,’ has died from complications from pneumonia. He was 86.
Though they just worked together in ‘The Watch,’ it appears that Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill enjoyed it enough to come back for seconds. The duo are looking to make ‘Aloha’ with Shawn Levy directing, and Nicholas Stoller writing.
In these franchise-minded times, it’s surprising that it’s taken this long for Universal to finally get around to making a fourth ‘Jurassic Park’ film. The third film – which was released in 2001 – still made over $350 million worldwide. And ‘Jurassic Park 4‘ seems to be coming along, according to producer Frank Marshall.
Hugh Hefner is a legend. The founder of Playboy magazine has influenced many lives, and inspired many extended trips to the bathroom. So it’s no shock that he’s getting the bio-pic treatment, but the screenwriter they’re talking to might be surprising.
When you’re coming off three back-to-back-to-back hits, it’s time to strike while the fire is hot, and Channing Tatum is wasting no time or the clout that came from ‘The Vow,’ ’21 Jump Street’ and ‘Magic Mike.’ He and his production company are looking to make a bio-pic about the famous daredevil Evel Knievel.
