  2. Locke & Key Gets a Movie Adaptation, Maybe It’ll Go Somewhere This Time

    Is this better than a TV pilot? Probably.

    At least something good came out of Fox TV's decision not to pick up the DreamWorks produced Locke & Key pilot that made the rounds in 2011 -- now Universal has acquired the rights to adapt the beloved comic book series into a movie trilogy, and they've gotten some amazing writers to do it. Hooray! Big screen Lovecraftian horrors for everyone!

  3. Warner Bros.’ Dungeons & Dragons Movie In Trouble As Universal Says “Back Off, We’re Already Making One”

  5. And Now for a Game of Good News/Bad News: Universal Has Wicked, Van Helsing Movies in the Works

    In Which We Make A Terrible Pun

    Universal Chairman Adam Fogelsen had a chat with The Hollywood Reporter about some of Universal's upcoming projects, and while some of what he had to say had me snoozing (the 50 Shades of Grey movie might come out in summer 2014, at which point I will care about it even less than I do now, which is barely possible), some of it caught my eye. Namely: What was that you just said about a Van Helsing reboot and a Wicked movie, Mr. Fogelsen?

  6. Universal Hires Hunger Games Writer for Their Mummy Remake In Case The Writer They Already Have Doesn’t Work Out

    Oh Hollywood

    So, you remember how Underworld's Len Wiseman is directing a Mummy remake? I don't blame you if you don't; since the news broke last September we've heard virtually nothing about it. But today there's a curious tidbit from of Vulture: Though the movie already has one screenwriter, Universal has hired another screenwriter to pen a second, competing script. That writer? The Hunger Games' Billy Ray So, are the two writers going to fight to the death to get their version made, or…?

  7. Rumored Tolkien Theme Park: The Hobbitest Place On Earth

    My Precious!

    Look, New Zealand, you're really far away from us and it's really expensive to get to you. Odds are, most of us won't ever be able to experience your beauty, never mind Hobbiton.

  8. UPDATED: Joe Hill’s Locke & Key Comic Might Be Getting A Three Picture Deal

    Cautiously Optimistic

    Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez's Locke & Key comic from IDW was once developed as a television series at Fox. Unfortunately the pilot wasn't picked up but there's good news on the horizon. The horror series may have a new home on the big screen thanks to Star Trek's Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci

  9. Universal Taps Jurassic Park Screenwriter to Give Us More Snow White and the Huntsman

    hold on to your butts

    After hitting the top of the box office last week -- and following the sisterly lovefest between its two female leads -- Universal is looking into its magic mirror and seeing more Snow White and the Huntsman movies. While there is no official word yet on which of the titular stars will be returning or if Rupert Sanders will come back to direct, but we can tell you that David Koepp, who wrote the first two Jurassic Park movies, Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man movie, and almost everything else, has been chosen to write the sequel. Maybe Koepp's efforts will make for something a little less, er, confusing.

  10. We Didn’t Ask For This: Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman Producing Reboots of The Mummy and Van Helsing

    BAD IDEAS FROM SMART PEOPLE

    Remember that time I said it wasn't worth complaining about reboots because there was absolutely no way of avoiding them? Get ready to halt any complaining now, because it was just announced that the Star Trek screenwriting dream team Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman will be serve as producers on reboots of The Mummy franchise as well as Van Helsing. Because, as we have all figured out, there is no reason to create original characters anymore, just take old ones and write new scripts. It's fan fiction, everyone. Hollywood has officially turned into a factory of big-budget fan fiction. By the way: Van Helsing will star Tom Cruise, so now it's fan fiction and celebrities engaging in cosplay. Yup. Go ahead -- try to deny that's what it is.
