It was never much more than a crazy, short-lived wisp of a rumor, but of all the left-field superhero movie prospects we've seen discussed, the idea of Joe Carnahan taking the reins for a Daredevil reboot might be the most alarmingly sensible.

Wondering how closely Bryan Singer intends to depict the classic X-Men villain Apocalypse in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse? Well, he isn't really tipping his hand just yet, but comments he recently made to Entertainment Weekly should still prove moderately promising for fans of the comics.

Marvel took a giant gamble when they decided to knit together a bunch of superhero franchises into the mega-franchise Avengers, but their risk paid off in spades -- and now that they've collected enough clout to start talking about their releases in terms of "phases" rather than individual films, other studios are eager to get in on the interconnecting franchise action.

When I was prognosticating the score for “The Counselor” on Rotten Tomatoes a couple days ago, I was thinking it would score well, especially with the talents involved; it’s directed by Ridley Scott, written by Pulitzer Prize winning author Cormac McCarthy, and stars Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, and Brad Pitt.

Max Landis is officially out of the Chronicle business, having been dismissed from the upcoming sequel by Fox execs who were unenthusiastic about his proposed direction for a follow-up to the surprise 2012 found-footage hit about a group of teens whose exposure to an unknown substance leaves them with superpowers.

It was more of a box office sensation than a critical darling, but the original Secret Life of Walter Mitty -- starring Danny Kaye as the titular mild-mannered daydreamer whose inner life offers a fabulous respite from his workaday existence (complete with musical numbers!) -- never seemed like an ideal candidate for the remake treatment, especially at the hands of a star like Ben Stiller, who infamously botched his attempt at remaking the classic The Heartbreak Kid.

It went from one of last year's most hotly anticipated releases to something of a critical disappointment, but Prometheus' $400 million gross all but guaranteed a sequel -- so although screenwriter Damon Lindelof has opted not to return, Fox is driving ahead with a follow-up, and it looks like they've found themselves a screenwriter.
joblo.com – I had the ultimate flashback to my childhood upon hearing the news that Fox is developing a big screen version of the classic Choose Your Own Adventure book series. The books, for those of you who lived under a rock in the 1980s and 1990s, are formatted in such a way that every few pages of reading forces you to decide on one of multiple directions for the story. 1 year 7 weeks ago via theothersenhman
