Are We Seriously Supposed to Believe There Are No Brown Men Talented Enough for Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin?
Sources suggested that the search for a lead in Disney's live-action Aladdin has been "especially" difficult because the team is only looking at Middle Eastern and Indian actors. This is just plain racist.Read More
Hello and welcome to a round-up of reviews for Guy Ritchie's take on our favorite Round Tablers, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. I've read dozens of reviews so you don't have to! Ahead, Charlie Hunnam is hunky, Jude Law (literally?) chews the scenery, and Guy Ritchie should probably calm down a fair bit.Read More

Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Genies*: “Ambitious and Non-Traditional” Live-Action Aladdin Finds Its Director
*Credit for this amazingness goes to TMS' Jessica Lachenal, who is funny as hell.
In more really weird Disney news, we've got more info on the live-action Aladdin that's coming out. When we last reported on it, it seemed to be going in a prequel direction. However, that seems to have changed and to hear it described now, it will be closer to the classic animated film with which we're all familiar. However, that doesn't mean it isn't still weird. A director was announced today whom you've probably guessed from the title of this post: Guy Ritchie.Read More

Buckle Buckle Swash Swash
After the most recent installment of Pirates of the Caribbean underwhelmed, could Guy Ritchie be the one to make pirates awesome again? News is out that he's set to direct an adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic swashbuckling novel Treasure Island. He'll produce with partner Lionel Wigram, with whom he teamed for Sherlock Holmes and its recent sequel.

This has clearly worked once. And now -- pirates. Yeah, I think it's fair to be more than cautiously optimistic about this one.Read More
Things We Saw Today
The LA Times recently reported that Guy Ritchie is off of the Lobo movie so that he can spend his time making a sequel to Sherlock Holmes. To which we said: "They're making a Lobo movie?!" Apparently: yes, since Joel Silver affirms that Warner Brothers is still interested in everyone's favorite genocidal Super Saiyan, space biker, KISS fan and dolphin lover; just with a different director.Read More
