Below you can find a brief synopsis for The Addams Family, along with the teaser trailer and a recently released poster.
Green Lantern, starring Ryan Reynolds and Taika Waititi, was unremarkable to say the least. Reynolds has gone on to do other things like Deadpool while Waititi is perhaps better known for his directorial efforts, some of which also featured him in starring roles.
And now it looks like the long-awaited reunion between the two is finally happening. But not for a Green Lantern sequel. According to new reports, the two will pair up for Free Guy, a video game based comedy. More info on the project below.
Netflix has a new holiday flick on the way, and they’ve grabbed The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, Tombstone, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star Kurt Russell to play Saint Nick himself, Santa Claus.
The movie doesn’t have a title yet, but will follow a pair of siblings who decide to prove Santa exists by catching him on camera. Instead, they end up accidentally causing Santa to crash his sleigh, and must help to save Christmas.
Chris Columbus, the director of movies like Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and writer of Gremlins and The Goonies, and his 1492 Pictures banner have teamed up with Jeremy Zag and his ZAG Entertainment, a company that specializes in children and family friendly entertainment franchises, as well as Ocean Blue Entertainment to finance and produce a new movie titled 12/24.
The movie will be a combination of both live action and animation, telling the story of two brothers on a quest to save Christmas. The screenplay will be written by Matt Lieberman, based on an original idea by David Guggenheim (Safe House, Stolen).
Warners Bros. will be making an animated Jetsons movie and has hired Matt Lieberman to write the script, according to Deadline, who added that the writer got the gig after his work on the animated Scooby-Doo movie for the studio.
The animated feature film will be based on the 1960s Hanna-Barbera series The Jetsons, for which WB now owns the archives (they acquired this in 1996 when they merged with Turner, which had held the rights since 1991). The cartoon TV series, which was the Space Age answer to the prehistoric Flintstones, centered on Orbit City residents, The Jetsons: George Jetson, his wife Jane, daughter Judy, and son Elroy, along with their dog Astro and robot maid Rosie.
