Let’s go back. Back in time before Paul Feig swooped in to direct an all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot which we’re actually excited about. Back in time to when the long-gestating ‘Ghostbusters 3’ was still a possibility, a sequel that most people didn’t really want. Back here in the land that time forgot, original ‘Ghostbusters’ director and producer Ivan Reitman was planning to helm the long-delayed third installment in the franchise, and according to some recently uncovered e-mails from Sony, we now know what that sequel would have been called—and who might have starred in it.
Just the other day, it was revealed that Jennifer Lawrence has met with Paul Feig, the director of the upcoming all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot. Rebel Wilson also admitted to meeting with her ‘Bridesmaids’ director about the film. And now, thanks to another report on the hacked e-mails from Sony, we know that the ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot has attracted interest from even more talented women: Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, Lizzy Caplan, and Amy Schumer all want in on this exciting new project.
We’ve gone from actively dreading and turning our nose up at a new ‘Ghostbusters’ movie to rejoicing and high-fiving a million angels now that Paul Feig is at the helm, turning a long-gestating sequel into an all-female reboot for the franchise. Feig is also responsible for introducing us to the charming and hilarious Rebel Wilson, who first entered our pop culture consciousness in Feig’s ‘Bridesmaids.’ Wilson’s name is one that’s been tossed around as an obvious choice for the ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot, so it’s not surprising to learn that the actress has already met with Feig about the possibility.
It's hard to believe there's a third movie about a museum filled with animated exhibits coming our way, but nonetheless, the first 'Night at the Museum 3' trailer is here to unlock the 'Secret of the Tomb' -- and to make Ben Stiller work for his paycheck.
When 'Pitch Perfect 2' was greenlit, it was assumed -- or at least hoped for -- that stars Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson would return. The former led the first film, while the latter was its breakout performer. And if you're a fan of 'Pitch Perfect' you'll be happy to know that both are coming back for the sequel.
Despite its seemingly low-key release, 2012's 'Pitch Perfect' was one of the year's biggest surprise hits and most pleasant surprises, grossing $115 million worldwide and winning over even the most cynical of audiences. A sequel was a no brainer, but we've already been thrown a curveball -- original director Jason Moore will not be back and will be replaced by producer and star Elizabeth Banks, making her directorial debut.
Among the final broadcast networks to decide the fates of its fall 2013 offerings, ABC has good news for most of its newest sitcoms. The 'Wonder Years'-esque 'The Goldbergs' and Malin Akerman's 'Trophy Wife' have been given full season orders, while Rebel Wilson's critically-panned 'Super Fun Night' has been given additional episodes as well, and James Caan's 'Back in the Game' has struck out altogether.
Rebel Wilson's new TV show, 'Super Fun Night,' debuted on ABC this week. Produced by Conan O'Brien with 'State' and 'Stella' alum Michael Showalter co-writing and consulting, the show has all the talent it needs to succeed, but still falls flat. That's okay because shows often take a few episodes to find their footing. But that's not what everyone is talking about; instead, we're all focused on the one thing we shouldn't be: Rebel Wilson's weight.
ABC certainly waited late enough on a Friday night to move forward with its announcements but boy did they populate the 2013-14 pickup list. Not only will 'Once Upon A Time' spinoff "Once Upon A Time in Wonderland' move forward, but so too will Rebel Wilson's 'Super Fun Night,' the high-concept 'Mixology' from creators of 'The Hangover,' and a plethora of others. Preview all of ABC's new series inside!
Aca-heck yes! Universal confirms they're planning a 'Pitch Perfect 2,' and that news is so great that we don't even care that we can't see it for another couple years or so.
