One of the goals with Sony's reboot of the Spider-Man franchise seems to be setting up as many of the webslinger's nemeses as possible. 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' will feature Paul Giamatti's Rhino, Jamie Foxx's Electro, and Harry (Dane DeHaan) and Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper), with at least one donning the outfit of the Green Goblin. Now Marc Webb revealed another possible bad guy in the movie.
Perhaps due to the success of the 'Alvin and the Chipmunks' and 'Smurfs' franchises, 'Chip 'n Dale' are going to be brought to the big screen in a similar way as Disney is pursuing a live action/animation hybrid feature film version of their origin story.
When I got a chance to sit down with Zac Efron, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen on the set of their upcoming R-rated comedy, 'Neighbors,' Efron was easily the most amped to be there. Perhaps he worried that he would be stuck for much of his career playing in romantic comedies, and similar Disney-fied films (more women break out of the child star shackles than teen heartthrobs). For him it might very well change everything.
Where for Rogen and Goldberg, who recently finished ‘This Is the End’ at the time of our interview, the movie was a transition point as Rogen is now getting old enough to play a responsible adult and parent. And though he produced ‘Neighbors’ with Goldberg, he definitely maintains his hand in the process.

In a surprise to no one, director Nicholas Stoller’s new film, ‘Neighbors,’ features male nudity. The film focuses on a married couple played by Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne, whose characters are raising a child, and the frat house next door run by Zac Efron and Dave Franco. In the scenes we saw from our visit to the set, there are a number of big parties in the film, and the frat brothers behave as they will -- which means they’re going to get out of hand and is what creates the central conflict in the film.
Though many of the 2014 Oscar Nominations seemed inevitable (we're looking at you, 'Gravity,' '12 Years a Slave' and 'American Hustle'), there were a number of surprises -- some pleasant, some less so. But perhaps the biggest "Huh?" was the best song nomination for 'Alone Yet Not Alone.' It turns out that the film violated campaigning rules, and has been disqualified.
