The Princess Bride

Legendary television writer Norman Lear recently renewed the overall deal he has with Sony. The deal is set to take Lear into his 100th year on this planet of ours.

Variety published a feature about the 97-year-old Lear, but it was just a small part of that feature that set the ol’ internet on fire today. In it there is a quote from Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra, who says that some “very famous people” have approached Sony with hopes of remaking the 1987 fairy tale classic The Princess Bride, which was executive produced by Lear. You can see what he had to say below.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

There’s no doubt that Spider-Man fans were holding on to the hope that Sony and Disney could find some sort of common ground after they broke up. Sony seemed to place the blame on Disney for being too greedy, while star Tom Holland remained optimistic about the situation.

However, at a recent entertainment summit, Sony Pictures CEO Tony Vinciquerra said “for the moment the door is closed.” More on the report below.

Spider-Man Far From Home

Given the recent success of Spider-Man films after joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there was some hope that Disney and Sony would continue to play nice with each other. However, that all came to a crashing halt when it was confirmed that the deal to share the character was off, and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige would no longer produce any new Spider-Man titles. This meant that Spidey could no longer play in the MCU sandbox, and that Sony was free to use the Webslinger as they please. This was disappointing news to many, especially those who saw that it was Marvel Studios who was the one to bring Spidey back to greatness after a less than impressive and short-lived reboot.

But none are more disappointed than the two people at the center of all of this, Feige and star Tom Holland. While at the D23 Expo, the two were able to share their thoughts on the split. Check out what they had to say below.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

By now, you may have heard that Sony and Marvel Studios are breaking up over the financial arrangement to continue to collaborate and produce Spider-Man films. Fan reaction was swift, as many were putting the blame on Sony for not agreeing to Disney’s new terms – after all, Sony was the one who came to Marvel and Marvel was the one who helped re-establish Spidey’s cinematic reputation. However, there were those who sided with Sony, citing that Disney’s request comes off as greedy. Whatever the case, Spidey’s presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be coming to an end.

As we wait to hear more about the fallout between the two, Sony is attempting to come out of this ahead by placing the blame on Disney and calling the break-up “disappointing.” More on the report below.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man has seen better days. The character went from being the sunny webslinging hero of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to being a pile of dust in just three films, only to be brought back once more to save the universe and then go on vacation – which ended up being completely ruined. The future of your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man looked like it was going to be bright considering all of the success the character had when Marvel Studios stepped in to save the character after an abysmal reboot.

However, it looks like the era of the MCU Spider-Man (played by Tom Holland) may have spun its last web as reports are saying that Marvel Studios will no longer produce any more Spider-Man films after they and Sony failed to reach an agreement. More on the report below.

Searching Header Image

The 2018 Sundance darling and summer indie hit Searching will be getting a sequel. The original film, starring John Cho and Debra Messing, centered on a father who was desperate to find her missing daughter. As the police investigation leads nowhere, the father turns to the only place that may lead to his daughter’s whereabouts, her laptop.

This is great news for a film that deserved a lot more attention than it got. And the best thing about it is that writer/director Aneesh Chaganty, co-writer/producer Sev Ohanian, and producer Natalie Qasabian will all be back in their creative capacities to bring a sequel to audiences. More on the report below.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

Phil Lord and Chris Miller are very adept at being able to give us entertaining material in all mediums from live-action to animation and even television. They are even more well-known for taking risks on projects that many deem to be failures. However, time and again, they have proven the skeptics wrong. As such, they have shown that they can give us hits by directing films like The LEGO Movie and Jump Street films. And of course, the two were also producers on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which won them their first Oscar for Best Animated Feature.

That leads us to our next report. While at the Television Critics Association 2019, they spoke about some upcoming TV series based on Marvel characters which Sony currently controls. More on the report below.

Charlie's Angels starring Kristen Stewart, Ella Balinska, Naomi Scott

When one studio film moves its date, you can be sure that it won’t be vacant for very long. In fact, right after Wonder Woman 1984 moved from its November 1, 2019 date to June 20, 2020, two other films took its place.

Reports say the new Charlie’s Angels reboot and the next Terminator film from Paramount have both moved into the November 1, 2019 slot. More on the report, below.
