The project is one of four ambitious, original animated and live-action hybrid films he and Brian Grazer have set up through their company Imagine Entertainment, in a joint venture with Australian production engine Animal Logic.
Howard is attached to direct “The Shrinking of Treehorn,” a children’s book by Florence Parry Heide with illustrations from Edward Gorey, originally published in 1971. Paramount Pictures will release the film.
“I’ve long had this passionate point of view that Ron Howard should make a tentpole animated movie. That’s how this started,” said Zareh Nalbandian, Animal Logic’s entertainment CEO.
“It was serendipitous that Imagine was sort of evolving and growing, and Animal Logic was more and more committed to the development and production of our own intellectual property. We have a shared
Moore will play Linda, the “brash, hard-living mother” of Alden Ehrenreich’s John the Savage. The “Solo” alum’s character is described as a “subversive outsider who threatens to disrupt the stability of New London’s utopian society.”
Based on Aldous Huxley’s 1932 novel, the adaptation was ordered to straight-to-series at USA earlier this year. The book imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself.
The rest of the cast includes Jessica Brown Findlay, Harry Lloyd, Kylie Bunbury, Hannah John-Kamen, Sen Mitsuji, Joseph Morgan and Nina Sosanya.
Insiders stress that the film is still in early development, as Royal is still in the process of writing the screenplay. After “Easy A” became a breakout hit, the studio opted to task him with directing duties as well. The spinoff will mark Royal’s directorial debut. Zanne Devine is returning to executive produce.
Will Gluck directed 2010’s “Easy A,” a teen comedy about a clean-cut high school student who relies on the school’s rumor mill to advance her social standing. It became a surprise hit, earning $75 million worldwide, while also solidifying its star Emma Stone on the A-list for leading ladies in Hollywood.
Insiders tell Variety the
The unscripted series, produced by Truly Original and 101 Studios, “spotlights the highly-skilled horsemen and trainers competing in the intense, high-stakes world of professional reining,” according to the network. It will follow eight men and women who “are determined to elevate and preserve the cowboy tradition as they train and engage in the exclusive ultra-competitive sport.”
Derived from the practice of herding cattle, reining is a western-based competition where riders guide horses through a precise pattern of circles, spins and stops, similar to the more European dressage.

Kevin Feige probably has to talk about the Disney and Fox deal on a daily basis. Regardless, when asked about the situation in a new interview promoting Spider-Man: Far From Home, Feige is excited to shed more light on the subject. Feige had this to say about the Fox properties such as X-Men and Fantastic Four, and how they'll be incorporated into the MCU.

Instead, Hirani spoke about the breakout success of his 2009 film “3 Idiots.” It earned $2 million (RMB13.9 million) in the Middle Kingdom.

On every episode of “Shoot This Now,” we talk about remarkable true stories that deserve to be made into movies. It would be poetic justice for Littlefeather’s Hollywood protest to finally be the subject of a Hollywood film.
It is the story of a woman finding her voice, while caught between two of Hollywood’s most powerful men. Marlon Brando wanted to give her a global platform to speak out. But Littlefeather said John Wayne, famous for killing Native Americans on film,
“We barely made it,” said visual effects supervisor Everett Burrell with a laugh, remembering the rush to finish postproduction on the first season of Netflix’s “The Umbrella Academy.” “Episode 10, especially, was huge. It had so much going on.”
For the unfamiliar, the 10th and final episode of the comic-book adaptation’s first season features one character ending a climactic battle by shooting a laser from her chest and destroying the moon, raining a spectacular apocalypse down on Earth in the process. But according to Burrell, showrunner Steve Blackman’s mandate for visual effects was consistent from the jump: Keep it simple. The goal was to rein in some of the more dramatic elements of the widely beloved source material and create the show’s own unique visual language.
June has been full of movies that are part of very long-running franchises, with the new “Toy Story” following “Dark Phoenix” and “Men in Black: International.” Though those two movies disappointed at the box office, it’s safe to say that “Toy Story 4” will not have similar problems — this thing is gonna be huge.
Fans have been waiting for this particular film for nine years since the release of “Toy Story 3.” So the big question is, does this long awaited, hugely anticipated new “Toy Story” film contain any scenes during or after the closing credits that you should stick around for?

The petition was first launched by the Return to Order campaign, a Christian organization under the U.S. Foundation for a Christian Civilization, in which members argue that the show attempts “to make satanism appear normal, light and acceptable,” adding, “this type of video makes light of Truth, Error, Good and Evil, and destroys the barriers of horror that society still has for the devil.

Since Johansson first appeared as Black Widow in 2010’s “Iron Man 2” and with the more recent increased attention on women-led films, there’s been a push from Marvel fans for Black Widow to get her own origin movie like every other Avenger. With the
