'Underworld' reboot scares up screenwriter

Before the Twilight franchise swept the box office, the Underworld series had a monopoly on the cinematic war between vampires and werewolves. Led by Kate Beckinsale, the original 2003 film spawned three sequels—and now it appears the series is getting rebooted.

As The Hollywood Reporter originally reported, the studio behind Underworld, Lakeshore Entertainment, has hired Cory Goodman to pen the reboot’s script. Goodman’s previous work includes the vampire-human war depicted in Priest, as well as the upcoming Vin Diesel film The Last Witch Hunter.

The last film in the series, Underworld: Awakening, debuted in 2012 and went on to become the franchise’s highest earner at the worldwide box office by a wide margin. But despite that recent success, Lakeshore should be sure to choose the reboot’s star wisely: The only Underworld film not to feature Beckinsale, 2009’s Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, finished its run as the worst-performing entry in the franchise.

Steve Carell replaces Zach Galifianakis in 'Freeheld'

Peter Sollett’s upcoming drama Freeheld is switching out one comedian for another, as Steve Carell is set to take over for a role previously filled by Zach Galifiankis.

Deadline reports that Carell will play Steven Goldstein in the film, which is based on a 2007 documentary of the same name. The documentary follows Laurel Hester’s battle against the New Jersey’s Domestic Partnership Act. Hester sought to amend the act in an effort to grant pension benefits to her domestic partner Stacie Andree. Carell’s character Goldstein, founder of the civil rights organization Garden State Equality, was a proponent for the cause.

The film also stars Ellen Page and Carell’s former Crazy, Stupid, Love co-star Julianne Moore. Freeheld has no release date yet, but Carell can next be seen taking a more dramatic turn in the buzzed-about Foxcatcher.

The 2014 New York Film Festival will host a series of special events, the Film Society of Lincoln Center announced in a press release today. A number of films will make their U.S. premieres at the festival, in addition to an anniversary screening that will turn the whole festival up to 11. While dates have yet to be announced, This Is Spinal Tap will receive a 30th-anniversary screening. In 1984, Rob Reiner’s mockumentary satirized the lifestyle of rock musicians and has since been a staple of movie history.

Star and writer Christopher Guest will attend the screening, through no other members of the cast and crew have been confirmed. Previous anniversary screenings have attracted many cast members before, however, for films like The Royal Tenenbaums and The Princess Bride, so other names may be announced. READ FULL STORY

Shlocky charms: The crazy rise and 'terrifying' return of 'Leprechaun'

How did a low budget horror movie about a diminutive Irish monster spawn five sequels, a new reboot, and the career of Jennifer Aniston? EW tracks the deranged history of the Leprechaun franchise.

Poster for 'Island of Dr. Moreau' doc 'Lost Soul' is manimal crackers

One of the oddest tales this writer has ever reported on involves 1996’s box-office bomb The Island of Dr. Moreau, the third big-screen adaptation of H.G. Wells’ novel about a scientist who tries to turn animals into people. The movie was a passion project of director Richard Stanley who had made a splash with his debut movie, the sci-fi action film Hardware, and who assembled a remarkable cast for his Moreau, which included Val Kilmer, Marlon Brando, David Thewlis, Fairuza Balk, and Ron Perlman. After just a few days of principal photography, he was fired from the film and ultimately replaced by veteran auteur John Frankenheimer (The Manchurian Candidate), but allegedly returned to haunt the set disguised as one of Moreau’s semi-human beasts. Despite, or more likely because of, such dedication to the cause, Stanley hasn’t made a feature film since, and sci-fi fans have been left to ponder what might have happened with both the film and his career had he been left in charge of the project.

Why the cast of 'Fury' got in fistfights every day on set

Most directors do their best to prevent actors punching each other. But during last year’s U.K. shoot for the World War II tank movie Fury, filmmaker David Ayer had his five principals—Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman, Shia Labeouf, Jon Bernthal, and Michael Peña—start the day by engaging in fisticuffs.

“We put them through martial arts training and physical combat classes,” says Ayer, whose film is released Oct. 17. “It’s a great ice breaker for actors. There’s something very honest about being punched in the face.”
