It's been a bumpy road for Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs biopic: the change of director from David Fincher to Danny Boyle, the change of leading man from Leonardo DiCaprio to Christian Bale to a big question mark, and now apparently a change of studio, as Sony has dropped the project entirely. But right on the heels of that announcement comes news that Universal is likely to save the day.
The ‘Highlander’ reboot has been developing for a long, long time now. How long? Ryan Reynolds was once attached to star when we might have been interested in such a thing. And while we all know there can be only one, and there can certainly be only one Sean Connery, it seems like this ‘Highlander’ reboot is picking up steam again, with Tom Cruise being sought for the role originated by Connery.

Magical!

It's been some time since we've gotten an update on 'G.I. Joe 3,' but don't worry—Paramount hasn't forgotten the third installment in the franchise. Although 'Retaliation' director Jon M. Chu has redirected his attention toward dance films, the third 'Joe' film already has a screenplay and has been searching for Chu's replacement. A new report suggests that Paramount's top choice is Martin Campbell, best known for directing the James Bond flick 'Casino Royale' and 'Green Lantern.'
At first glance, there's something a little "female version of 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button'" about this trailer for 'The Age of Adaline'—the film has a fantastical, darkly whimsical quality to its tale of a woman (Blake Lively) who doesn't age due to a freakish accident. Depending on your perspective, that might be a blessing or a curse, and given our cultural preoccupations with beauty and youth, 'The Age of Adaline' looks to explore the beauty in aging itself.
Donna Tartt’s ‘The Goldfinch’ has been one of the most talked about books of the last year—spending 39 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and picking up a Pulitzer Prize didn’t hurt, either. Tartt’s novel is getting an inevitable film adaptation thanks to Brett Ratner’s production company and Warner Bros., and has just landed a promising screenwriter to help make the translation from page to screen: Peter Straughan, who previously penned the screenplay for ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.’

Marvel's ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was one of the most surprising blockbusters of 2014 for a variety of reasons, but one of the most interesting side effects of its success is that it got people all over the world listening to a bunch of catchy songs from the '60s and ‘70s. Yes, Star-Lord's “Awesome Mix Vol. 1” mix tape took the world by storm, even reaching number one on the billboard charts. Considering how much the soundtrack informed the tone of the film, it's not surprising that the movie ended with the reveal of an “Awesome Mix Vol. 2,” which we‘ll surely get to hear in the sequel. Now, director James Gunn has revealed the existence of and “Awesome Mix Vol. 0” playlist.
‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1’ is a movie comprised almost entirely of deleted scenes. As it says right in the title, this isn’t the final chapter of ‘The Hunger Games’ series; it’s just the first half of the final chapter, and that’s exactly what it feels like.
