    Jeremy Renner to Play Doc Holliday in New Movie About the Famed Gunslinger

    [​IMG]

    Jeremy Renner is taking aim at legendary gunfighter John Henry “Doc” Holliday. PalmStar Media has optioned the rights to two Mary Doria Russell novels, Doc and Epitaph: A Novel of the O.K. Corral, that are being developed as a Renner starring vehicle.

    PalmStar’s Kevin Frakes will produce the as-yet untitled film alongside Renner and Don Handfield’s The Combine.

    Considered to be seminal books on the charismatic gunslinger, the novels chronicle Holliday's life from his time as a gentleman dentist in Reconstruction-era Atlanta to his stand alongside Wyatt Earp at the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, made famous in Hollywood films including Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and Tombstone. Previous Doc Hollidays include Kirk Douglas, Val Kilmer and Dennis Quaid.

    “We are excited to re-introduce this classic American character to a whole new audience by chronicling Doc Holliday’s incredible transformation from average Joe dentist to a man who Wyatt Earp called the ‘nerviest, speediest, deadliest man with a six-gun [he] ever knew,’” Renner and Handfield said in a joint statement.

    Melissa McCarthy to Star in Raunchy R-Rated Puppet Movie THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS

    [​IMG]

    STXfilms is teaming with Melissa McCarthy for the raunchy R-rated puppet movie The Happytime Murders, which Brian Henson will direct in conjunction with Jim Henson Company’s Henson Alternative banner.

    The comedy is set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans co-exist. Two clashing detectives, one human (McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together to figure out who is brutally murdering the former cast of The Happytime Gang, a beloved classic puppet show. A year ago, Jamie Foxx was in talks to star in Happytime Murders, but that did not solidify.

    “Melissa McCarthy is the reigning queen of comedy, and we believe she will make The Happytime Murders the kind of hysterical, edgy, viral event that audiences today crave,” Fogelson said in a statement. “This is the kind of script and material that was made for Melissa’s smart and boundary-pushing sensibilities.”

    Added McCarthy, “When a really good script combines puppet strippers, Los Angeles’ underbelly and comedy, it’s like my fever dream has finally come true.”

    The story is by Todd Berger & Dee Robertson; the screenplay is by Todd Berger, with revisions by Erich & Jon Hoeber and further revisions by McCarthy.

    Paris Jackson to Make Her Feature Film Debut in Nash Edgerton Movie

    [​IMG]

    Paris Jackson is making her feature film debut in Amazon Studios’ Untitled Nash Edgerton Project. The daughter of Michael Jackson will portray Nelly, described only as “an edgy 20-year-old” in the dark comedy about a mild-mannered American businessman (David Oyelowo) who crosses a line from citizen to criminal.

    Combining dark comedy with dramatic intrigue, the untitled film joyrides across the border into Mexico, where all is not as it seems for businessman Harold Soyinka (Oyelowo). Crossing the line from citizen to criminal, Harold tangles with duplicitous business partners, Mexican drug lords, international mercenaries and the DEA. As he attempts to survive in one the most dangerous places on Earth, the question lingers: Is this ordinary man in way over his head, or is he two steps ahead?

    Directed by Nash Edgerton, the film was written by Anthony Tambakis and Matt Stone and produced by Nash Edgerton, Rebecca Yeldham, Anthony Tambakis, Beth Kono, A.J. Dix and Theron.

    AVATAR Sequels Writer Shane Salerno to Pen GEARS OF WAR Movie

    [​IMG]

    Universal Pictures has set Shane Salerno to write the screenplay for Gears Of War, the big-scale live-action adaptation of Microsoft Studios’ iconic Xbox video game franchise. Universal-based Dylan Clark is producing.

    Universal and Microsoft announced their collaboration on the game in late 2016. At the time, Rod Fergusson, head of Microsoft subsidiary The Coalition that develops new Gears Of War content and the franchise co-creator, said the film would not be based on any particular game but instead be a new story set in the universe. That universe is the fictional planet of Sera, where a squad of beefed-up commandos living in a bombed-out postapocalyptic society battle swarms of alien creatures called Locusts.

    Salerno’s current writing credits include the four sequels to Avatar for director James Cameron, which begin shooting in August, as well as writing and producing The Cartel for Ridley Scott to direct at 20th Century Fox, based on the bestselling Don Winslow novel. His other credits include the Michael Bay-directed Armageddon and the Oliver Stone-directed Savages.

    looks more like an alien ripoff of Blade. Just wait, the twist will be that Snipes was abducted and altered by the aliens to have "all of their strengths, none of their weaknesses"

    ...Besides the fondness for anal-probing, of course.

    Lmao I so misread that thread title. I thought Wesley Snipes and Jeremy Renner were going to be in a Sci-Fi horror movie about Doc Holiday.

    Dave Chappelle Joins Bradley Cooper in A STAR IS BORN Remake

    [​IMG]

    Dave Chappelle has joined the cast of Warner Bros’ A Star Is Born, the remake starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga (as Stefani Germanotta) that Cooper is directing.

    In A Star Is Born Chappelle will play will an old friend of Cooper’s Jackson Maine, the country music star who is on the brink of decline when he discovers a talented unknown named Ally (Germanotta). When her career eclipses Jackson’s own, he finds it increasingly hard to handle his fading glory.

    Shooting kicked off at Coachella last month and production is now fully underway. Andrew Dice Clay and Sam Elliott are also in the cast, and the pic has a September 28, 2018 release date.

    Chappelle last fall signed a deal with Netflix for three comedy specials, the latest step in his return to the spotlight after exiting his Comedy Central sketch series Chappelle’s Show in 2006. Chappelle’s most recent film credit was Spike Lee’s 2015 pic Chi-raq.

    Will Ferrell and Jason Momoa to Star in Untitled Comedy Film from Paramount

    Paramount has acquired an untitled pitch for a comedy that will star Will Ferrell and Aquaman‘s Jason Momoa. Andy Mogel & Jarrad Paul will write it and Nick Stoller and Gary Sanchez will produce.

    They are keeping the logline under wraps but when it was being pitched, sources described it as Galaxy Quest meets Ocean’s Eleven, with Ferrell a washed up TV star reuniting with his now grown TV show son (Momoa) who has become a huge star.

    Mogel & Paul most recently created The Grinder, starring Rob Lowe for Fox, and also wrote and directed The D Train starring Jack Black and James Marsden.

    Stoller recently directed Neighbors and Storks, and also co-created and wrote The Carmichael Show for NBC. Gary Sanchez’s next, The House, will be released by Warner Bros June 30.

    Hollywood keeps trying to sell us on Jeremy Renner as a leading man when at best, he's a sidekick.

    I like the guy, but he just doesn't have "it".
