A new trailer has been released by Relativity Media for Masterminds, an upcoming heist comedy starring Zach Galifianakis. You can watch the first trailer here as well.
The movie follows an armored car driver (Galifianakis) who ends up involved in a heist, and comes from Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre director Jared Hess. It also stars Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Ken Marino, and three of the four stars of the new Ghostbusters in Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon.
You can read a synopsis for the movie and watch the new trailer below.
Relativity Media and Reel FX have announced that they will be joining forces to co-finance and produce a new animated comedy titled Turkeys.
The movie stars the vocal talents of Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers, Cars) and Woody Harrelson (Zombieland, The Hunger Games), and is directed by Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears A Who!). It’s currently scheduled for a release at some point in 2014.
Another project we haven’t heard from in a while is the movie based on the popular Hasbro toy, Stretch Armstrong.
The movie was once set up at Universal Pictures with The Twilight Saga star Taylor Lautner attached to star, but it has since departed Universal and found its way to Relativity Media’s doorstep, who have been developing it since.
No actors are attached to star in the new attempt at making the movie yet, but the studio has found their director. It’s being reported that they’ve entered into negotiations with Breck Eisner to sit in the director’s chair, working from a script by Dean Georgaris.
Now that the lawsuit between Relativity Media and The Weinstein Company regarding the distribution rights to the planned remake of The Crow has been settled, movement on the project is being fast forwarded.
In a matter of about an hour earlier today, it was reported that a new writer and a new director had been chosen to remake The Crow. Relativity has chosen F. Javier Gutierrez (Before the Fall, The Monkey’s Paw) to direct, and Jesse Wigutow (Irreparable Harm, The Osterman Weekend) to write the script.
