Dax Shepard to write, direct, and star in 'CHiPS' movie

Jon and Ponch better dust off their motorcycles and clean their aviator sunglasses, because they’re about to hit the big screen.

Sources have confirmed that Warner Bros is teaming with writer, director, and star Dax Shepard on an upcoming big-screen remake of CHiPS, the popular television series that ran from 1977 to 1983 and followed two California patrol officers as they rode around freeways, handed out tickets, and just generally looked cool.

Shepard is on board to star as Officer Jon Baker (originally portrayed by Larry Wilcox) with Michael Pena in the role of Frank Poncherello (originally portrayed by Erik Estrada). According to Deadline, who first reported the news, the remake is planning to offer a more serious take on the original series.

Charlie Hunnam in final talks for King Arthur role

Guy Ritchie has his eyes on Charlie Hunnam for the lead role in Warner Bros.’ upcoming King Arthur saga, sources confirm to EW. The Sons of Anarchy actor is the director’s top choice and is in final negotiations to play the medieval warrior.

Elizabeth Olsen is also in talks for the female lead in the Joby Harold-penned project, which, according to Deadline, could be a six-film franchise. Idris Elba has been rumored to be circling a role as well.

Hunnam, whose Sons of Anarchy starts up its seventh and final season on Sept. 9, also starred in Warner Bros. and Legendary’s Pacific Rim and can be seen in Guillermo del Toro’s horror Crimson Peak, which is expected to hit theaters in 2015. He’s also known for being the guy to sign on for and then promptly drop out of the big-screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

This article has been updated to reflect the fact that Crimson Peak will open on Oct. 16, 2015, not in 2016. We regret the error.

Warner Bros. and RatPac team up for 'The Goldfinch'

Warner Bros. has acquired the feature film rights to Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winner The Goldfinch, with Brett Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment and Nina Jacobson’s Color Force set to produce the adaptation, EW confirmed Monday.

The Goldfinch tells the story of Theo Decker, whose mother is killed in the bombing of a New York museum. Abandoned by his father, Decker is taken in by a wealthy family. The epic, post-traumatic tale reveals the nearly two-decade aftermath of those events, anchored by Decker’s attachment to the piece of art (Dutch master Carel Fabritius’ “The Goldfinch”) he walked out of the devastated museum with years ago.

Clocking in at nearly 800 pages, the book has nevertheless been on the New York Times bestseller list for 39 weeks and was considered a hot property for the big-screen treatment. Warner Bros. also has the rights to Tartt’s first novel, The Secret History, which they acquired years ago. That adaptation has yet to make it to the screen, though.

Fantastic Beasts come in threes.

The Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be released by Warner Bros. as a trilogy of “megamovies,” The New York Times reports in its profile on the studio’s CEO, Kevin Tsujihara.

Johnny Depp, Clint Eastwood, and Drew Barrymore introduce packed Warner Bros. slate at CinemaCon

It’s not yet clear if any of the stars Warner Bros. trotted out during the last panel of the CinemaCon trade show had the star power to eclipse the giant lizard that seemed to steal the show during the studio’s presentation of Godzilla, but the studio couldn’t be faulted for trying.

On hand to present just a few films from the robust slate — which includes the musical tribute to Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys, the mind-bending thriller Transcendence, and the family comedy Blended — were director Clint Eastwood, stars Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman, and Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, respectively.

But with Bryan Cranston doing panic and grief better than anyone, it looks like WB’s big hit of the summer with be Gareth Edwards’ take on the iconic Godzilla. READ FULL STORY
