  8. Teddy Bear Meme Artist Didn’t Put Much Thought Into Drawing, Actually Quite Amazed People Are So Into It

    Earlier this week we reported that the above illustration entitled Sweet Halloween Dreams -- created by Greek software engineer and artist Alex Panagopoulos -- would be turned into a movie with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Beau Flynn, and Hiram Garcia attached to the project as producers. While Panagopoulos has already sold the drawing's film rights to New Line Cinema, there was no word on the artist's own reaction to the life-changing news -- until today. No doubt surprised by the overnight surge in popularity of his artwork, Panagopoulos still can't believe that it was enough to merit this level of attention from the film industry.

  9. Teddy Bear Internet Meme Set to Become Movie, Will Be Produced by The Rock

    Obviously a sign of the internet zeitgeist, only in this generation can a lowly internet meme have the potential to be turned into a million-dollar box office blockbuster. The above image -- illustrated by Greek software engineer and fantasy artist Alex Panagopoulos -- depicting a teddy bear standing up to nightmares incarnate will reportedly be given the Hollywood treatment, with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Beau Flynn of FlynnPicturesCo set to produce the film tentatively titled Teddy Bear. Wait a minute, aren't Johnson and Flynn attached to Journey 2: The Mysterious Island? And on that note, doesn't Johnson have a penchant for starring in family-friendly fare like Tooth Fairy? If that's the case, then that teddy bear's going to need a much bigger sword and shield.

  10. LOTR Ripoff Age of the Hobbits Is Changing Its Name, Warner Bros. Is Still Suing Just to Be Sure

    Oh Hollywood

    Looks like that's game, set, and match to Warner Bros. A few months back we got word that A) a company called The Asylum was producing a Lord of the Rings ripoff called Age of the Hobbits and B) Warner Bros. subsidiary New Line Cinema, which is producing The Hobbit trilogy, was planning to sue the pants off them. Now it appears that Warner Bros. has secured their victory, as Asylum has changed the name of of the film (which co-stars Christopher Judge, aka Teal'c from Stargate, interestingly enough) to the non-copyright-infringing Clash of the Empires.

  11. Animals & Slot Machines Cause Lots Of Legal Trouble For The Hobbit, Peter Jackson Responds

    Not all that glitters is gold

    Peter Jackson is probably hoping the old saying, "there's no such thing as bad publicity" applies to his current predicament. The Hobbit is currently swirling in midst of two very different controversies. The first is allegations of animals dying on production of the films, the other involves unauthorized merchandising not limited to, but including Lord of the Rings slot machines. Jackson has issued a statement on the former.

  12. LOTR Ripoff, Age of The Hobbits, Claims Hobbits Are Real, Sticks Tongue Out At New Line Cinema

    Not all that glitters is gold

    "Mockbusters" are quickly becoming just as big a part of the movie business as porn parodies, though I suppose the two could be interchanged. Regardless, a new one titled Age of the Hobbits is trying to capitalize on the release of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Only, the creators are saying their hobbits are the real deal. Just what we've always wanted?

  13. Y: The Last Man Movie May Finally Get Made

    The film adaptation of Brian K. Vaughn's Y: The Last Man has been kicked around Hollywood for a long, long time. It seems like every couple years, something seeps out that indicates the film is still alive and at some point will be made. The latest supposed news out of New Line Cinema indicates that a recent draft has passed muster, and the studio is now looking at potential directors for the continuously stalled project.

  14. New Line May Be Pondering a Y: The Last Man Movie Again

    i'll just leave this here

    Y: The Last Man has had a lot of time to make it from the comics pages to the big or small screen, and now that The Walking Dead, another long-running, popular-outside-the-average-comic-reader post apocalyptic title has shown its staying power, one wonders why Y: The Last Man hasn't been put into production before. If you ask me, it's probably because studios have balked at the idea of a cast made up almost entirely of women. But according to Vulture, New Line Cinema is stepping up to the plate.

  15. Where Will Peter Jackson Find The Money For The Third Hobbit? (Dwarves LOL)

    Not all that glitters is gold

    Whatever your reaction was to the news of Peter Jackson making The Hobbit into three films, the reality has set in - how the hell is this actually going to work? You know, because the film doesn't even have a script and the studios hadn't budgeted for three. Someone needs to tell the dwarves to dig deeper I guess.

  17. New Line Cinema is Making a Rampage Movie for Some Reason

    One of the best games of the young console video game industry, city destruction simulator Rampage, is currently under development by New Line Cinema to hit the silver screen. The game, which has been remade a few times since its initial arcade release in 1986, featured a small cast of the usual suspects of big monsters from movies that destroy cities -- a big gorilla, and a big lizard -- and also a giant wolfman because why not. The goal of the game is to destroy buildings by punching them and eat people, and when one city is sufficiently destroyed, the troupe of monsters would move to the next. This is now being developed as a movie.

  18. The Hobbit Has Finally Been Greenlit

    It's for real now, no backsies: MGM has finally given the goahead on The Hobbit, a movie plagued by years of pre-production anguish, involving studio bankruptcy, labor disputes, a director search, and even fire. Well, the film is being given a budget of $500 million, Peter Jackson is directing, and according to The Coventry Telegraph, even MGM's financial problems can no longer get in the way:
    MGM is finding its share of the project's funding from external sources and, if that fails, Warner Bros has pledged to step in and lend the money to MGM.
    So the only thing left unmentioned by New Line Cinema's press release is whether the film will continue to be shot in New Zealand, where localized pre-production work (like the rebuilding of Hobbiton) has already begun; or if actors labor disputes will cause the production to move to Europe.
