Given Sacha Baron Cohen's resemblance to Queen's late frontman Freddie Mercury, it's a shame Cohen won't be playing him in the biopic, but he has another project lined up: A spy action-comedy called Grimsby.
Cohen and Phil Johnston came up with the story and sold their pitch to Paramount last August.
Madea gets coaxed into helping a friend pay her daughter a surprise visit in the country for Christmas, but the biggest surprise is what they'll find when they arrive. As the small, rural town prepares for its annual Christmas Jubilee, new secrets are revealed and old relationships are tested while Madea dishes her own brand of Christmas Spirit to all.
Following the success of his film “Now You See Me,” Louis Leterrier is ready to enter the the world of espionage and is on board to direct Sacha Baron Cohen’s spy-action comedy “Grimsby” for Paramount. Baron Cohen and Phil Johnston sold the film as a pitch to Paramount last August.

If you ever want to see Jean-Claude Van Damme in a comedy (no, his previous movies don't count), then Welcome to the Jungle may just be the ticket. Check out the trailer below.
Truth be told, the movie looks like it is more fun to make than to sit through, but the sight of JCVD spoofing himself is unusual enough to give it a look.
Directed by Rob Meltzer, Welcome to the Jungle will hit select theaters and VOD on February 7, 2014.

Universal Pictures is so eager to make Ted 2 that they've already scheduled it for a June 26, 2015 release. The only problem is that they don't actually have the rights to make the followup to Seth MacFarlane's 2012 comedy blockbuster. In a very interesting article on the current nature of independently financed, studio-released films, The Wall Street Journal explains that Ted was financed and produced by the privately backed Media Rights Capital, which in turn sold the distribution rights to Universal who distributed and marketed the film.

Nanny McPhee was set to be a franchise for Emma Thompson, starring as the magical governess who teaches kids to behave. Based on the Christianna Brand books, 2005’s Nanny McPhee led to a 2010 sequel, Nanny McPhee Returns so there are many fans of the nanny. Unfortunately, those fans will not be getting a trilogy, and Thompson was sorry to break it to us.
