Valentine’s Day director Garry Marshall created the classic Happy Days spin off sitcom Laverne & Shirley, which starred Cindy Williams and Garry’s sister Penny Marshall as Milwaukee brewery workers.  Extra talked to Marshall who claimed that a film adaptation may be in the works with Jessica Biel and Jennifer Garner as the duo.

Variety are saying that Pierce Brosnan, Ed Harris, and Jim Gaffigan will star in indie feature Salvation Boulevard. The comedic thriller is set in the world of mega-churches in which a former Deadhead-turned-born again-Christian finds himself on the run from fundamentalist members of his mega-church who will do anything to protect their larger-than-life pastor.

New Line has hired screenwriters Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (Sam Weir from Freaks and Geeks!) to write the new Vacation film according to Variety.  The story will focus on Rusty Griswold, now a grown man, who decides to take his own wife and kids on a road trip to Wally World before it closes forever. Chase is expected to reprise his role as Clark Griswold, now a grandfather. It will be closer in tone to Planes, Trains and Automobiles than the previous chapters.

Filming has begun on Jaume Collet-Serra’s (Orphan) next project Unknown White Male in Germany.  The film stars Liam Neeson (Schindler’s List, Clash of the Titans), Diane Kruger (Inglorious Basterds), January Jones (Mad Men), Aidan Quinn (The Book of Daniel), Bruno Ganz (The Reader, Downfall) and Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon) –  Liam Neeson stars as Dr. Martin Harris, who awakens after a car accident in Berlin to discover that his wife (January Jones) suddenly doesn’t recognize him and another man (Aidan Quinn) has assumed his identity. Ignored by disbelieving authorities and hunted by mysterious assassins, he finds himself alone, tired, and on the run. Aided by an unlikely ally (Diane Kruger), Martin plunges headlong into a deadly mystery that will force him to question his sanity, his identity, and just how far he’s willing to go to uncover the truth.

According to Variety screenwriters Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith are to write a remake of the 1982 musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.  The 1982 version (based off the 1978 Broadway play of the same name) starred Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton as a town sheriff and madame who team up to stop a crusading TV personality from shutting down the local whorehouse. 

THR is reporting that Richard Matheson’s 1982 novel Earthbound is heading to movieland. This will join adaptions of his other books I Am Legend, The Shrinking Man and What Dreams May Come. Earthbound is described as an “erotic ghost story” about a married man who starts an affair with a young stranger, only to realize that she may actually be the ghost of a long-dead woman driven by something more than earthly passion.

Screen Daily have the news that Alicia Silverstone will reunite with Clueless director Amy Heckerling in a film called Vamps“ a modern-day tale of two young female vampires living the good life in New York until love enters the picture and each has to make a choice that will jeopardize their immortality.” Krysten Ritter (Confessions of a Shopaholic, Veronica Mars, Breaking Bad) will be the other Vamp alongside Silverstone.

Tyrese Gibson has confirmed that he will be back as Sgt. Epps in Michael Bays Transformers 3. In a post on Twitter, he confirmed by saying that “Yes I will for sure be in Transformers 3.. Get Ready!! Epps is here to STAY!!”.

Bubo the mechanical Owl has a cameo in Louis Leterrier’s remake of Clash of the Titans. Film School Rejects had the news, but it is not clear whether his scenes will make it into the final cut.

The A-Team – Dirk Benedict to go Face to Face in cameo

Posted by LiveFor on November 26, 2009

A few weeks ago news surfaced that original The A-Team cast member Dwight Schultz who played Murdock would have a cameo role in the big-screen remake. However, he is not the only one.

Fan site Dirk Benedict Central is reporting that Dirk Benedict, who played Templeton “Faceman” Peck in the original series, will also have a cameo appearance in the new film.

Dirk has just announced to this website that he has two projects in the works beginning with a cameo appearance in the new The A-Team film, which is currently shooting in Vancouver Canada.

The A-Team is directed by Joe Carnahan and stars Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Biel, Quinton Jackson, Patrick Wilson and Yul Vazquez and is out on 11 June 2010.

Although I personally love it when they do stuff like this, I am never sure if it is good or bad for the film in question – It kind of pulls you out of the moment as you go “Oh that was so-and-so from the original show” which is probably not very helpful to the new versions of the characters.

How do you feel about original actors cameoing in new versions of their shows or film?

Posted by LiveFor on October 29, 2009

bielHold on to your hats true believers. You read that right. Jessica Biel has signed up for a bit of a saucy sex comedy.

The actress is attached to star in and produce rookie screenwriter Julia Brownell’s original screenplay F***ing Engaged, a comedy about a couple who make a pact to have sex every day leading to their wedding so they don’t turn into their crusty old parents.

Biel most recently starred in “Powder Blue,” “Easy Virtue” and “I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry.” She next appears in “Nailed” and “Valentine’s Day,” hitting theaters in February. She is also currently working on The A-Team.

Does the thought of Jessica Biel in a sex comedy appeal to any of you?

Nite-Owl may be after The A-Team

Posted by LiveFor on September 22, 2009

patrick_wilsonThe A-Team has been cast but news of the surrounding friends and foes are beginning to trickle out. Jessica Biel is going to be an ex of Face (Bradley Cooper). David Richmond-Peck is also in it as one of the bad guys.

Now Empire have the news that Patrick Wilson has joined the cast.

The Watchmen star will play a CIA operative in the movie. That could mean he is going to be one of the bad guys, but that is not necessarily so. He could maybe be a contact for the Team who helps them out with info. We just don’t know at this early stage.

Jessica Biel may be in Thor. Clifton Collins Jr won’t.

Posted by LiveFor on July 3, 2009

Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Brian Blessed are cast as Thor, Loki and Odin, but who elso will be in Kenneth Branagh‘s adaption of the Marvel comic?

Clifton Collins Jr. isn’t. He mentioned a while back that he was meeting with the Thor people, but he didn’t mention for what role. He told The Dead Bolt this week that he’s no longer a part of the project.

“That was a long time ago. I wasn’t really getting into it, I was just preparing stuff. It’s a fantastic director, a great piece, but I have absolutely nothing to do with it.”

Meanwhile Jessica Biel is now being rumored to be playing a female character and love interest to the titular hero in the project according to Nuke the Fridge.

The site’s source also says the role is likely to be that of Amora The Enchantress , however it could be theAsgardian warrior Sif. Still no word on what role Natalie Portman or Josh Hartnett may be playing.

Do you want to see Biel in Thor? What character do you think she will be playing?
