Exclusive: Luke Greenfield to Direct Comedy ‘Half-Brothers’ for Focus Features
Five years after the success of Let's Be Cops, Luke Greenfield is stepping behind the camera again to direct the comedy Half-Brothers for Focus Features, Collider has exclusively learned. One of Mexico's biggest stars, Luis Gerardo Mendez, is attached to star in the film, which follows two half-brothers who are put to the test when they're sent on a wild goose chase to uncover their dying father's mysteries. Eduardo Cisneros (Instructions Not Included), Jason Shuman and Greenfield co-wrote the script, and the three of them will produce alongside Jason Benoit. Production is slated …

"Hollywood Needs Us": A Year in the Trenches at America's Top Film School

Earlier this year, in a classroom at USC's renowned School of Cinematic Arts, students screened the nearly two-decade-old big-break short film of alumnus Luke Greenfield, who went on to direct studio comedies like Role Models and Let's Be Cops. The short — a satire of singles-bar mating rituals that first brought the filmmaker to the attention of Adam Sandler — follows its hero's journey from hapless reject to self-assured lothario after he bizarrely determines that success with his love interest, an unamused lesbian, requires punching her in the face. What was meant as shock-farce in 2000 landed with a ...

'A Quiet Place' Hopes to Hold off Newcomers and Return to Weekend #1

'A Quiet Place' Hopes to Hold off Newcomers and Return to Weekend #1
Audiences may already be looking ahead to Avengers: Infinity War, but this weekend could feature an interesting battle among the top three. While we're expecting A Quiet Place to return to the weekend's #1 spot, the race could be a little closer should Rampage hold on better than expected or if Amy Schumer's new comedy I Feel Pretty outperforms expectations. The weekend also sees the release of Fox Searchlight's Super Troopers 2 and Lionsgate's release of Traffik into a moderate number of locations. Beginning with A Quiet Place, the horror/thriller has already brought in nearly $110 million and is poised to top recent horror hits Split and The Conjuring. With Paramount adding another 219 locations for a total of 3,808 theaters, we're anticipating a 36% drop and a three-day right around $21 million. Come the end of the weekend the film should top $130 million domestically. Look for Dwayne Johnson's Rampage to

Rob Riggle Fought For Dramatic Role In 'Midnight Sun'

  • CineMovie
Rob Riggle often tickles our funny bone as the comic relief in many of his movies (21 Jump Street, The Hangover) and television projects. We've also often seen the comedian play military and authoritative types (12 Strong, Let's Be Cops) given his tall statue and military background, but this time he wanted to play up the sensitive side of a character. Riggle's tells Sabina Graves how he fought for the role as a single father to an teen (played by Bella Thorne) suffering from a rare disease in Midnight Sun. Watch the interview below.

'Pirates 5' and 'Baywatch' Set Sail Over Memorial Day Weekend

'Pirates 5' and 'Baywatch' Set Sail Over Memorial Day Weekend
Memorial Day weekend brings two new wide releases to theaters in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Paramount's R-rated comedy Baywatch, the latter of which got a head start on the weekend holding preview screenings last night and arriving nationwide today. Neither are necessarily expected to blow the doors off with Pirates looking to finish well behind the last three films, especially Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, which currently holds the Memorial Day opening weekend record of $139.8 million. Meanwhile there are a few questions as to just how high Baywatch will finish as Paramount really could use a win with this one as not one of their four releases this year has managed to hit $45 million domestically. At the top, while it isn't expected to top $100 million for the four day or even the $90.1 million Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides delivered

That face! Nina Dobrev just adopted a new dog — and she's the cutest! The Vampire Diaries alum introduced her via Instagram on Monday, April 24.

"Meet Maverick," she captioned a pic of the pup wearing a red hair bow.

The star, 28, even created a "@Mrs.Maverick" Instagram account for her new buddy. "Hi. My name is Maverick Do(g)brev. I like long walks on the beach and candle lit dinners in doggie bowls," the introductory post reads. "I have a brother named Goose and we’re both 9 weeks old. I keep hearing the giants around us say that we’re half Border Collie half Aussie Shepherd, but I guess we won’t know for sure until we get a DNA test."

Our first encounter... #MischievousMaverick @mrs.maverick

While it may look like fun and games, surviving Coachella isn't easy. The Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev can attest to this after her ninth year attending the music festival in California. And in 2017, not only did she attend the first weekend, but also the second—an unheard of feat for anyone, let alone a busy celebrity.

"I logged my steps from last weekend and I think we did seven miles the first day, eight miles the second day, and then seven miles the last," said Dobrev on Sunday morning, the final day of the weekend-long event. "We didn’t even go for the full days—that’s just like, 7 p.m. until midnight."

Somehow, Dobrev was still full of energy, and completed a full Les Mills Grit workout at the Reebok Classics

'Beauty and the Beast' to Repeat at #1 Over 'Power Rangers', 'Life' and 'CHiPs'

'Beauty and the Beast' to Repeat at #1 Over 'Power Rangers', 'Life' and 'CHiPs'
As has been the case over the last three weekends, this weekend is looking to outperform last year and, once again, by a significant margin. The big story, of course, is Disney's Beauty and the Beast as it continues to blow the doors off, becoming one of the fastest films to top $200 million at the domestic box office and, by the end of this weekend, will have topped $300 million in just ten days of release. In addition to Beauty and the Beast's second weekend, three new wide releases make their debut including Lionsgate's Power Rangers, Sony's R-rated sci-fi Life and WB's R-rated comedy CHiPs, all of which will have varying degrees of success as the top twelve should top a combined $180 million, making it the second largest weekend of the year. As of Wednesday, Disney's Beauty and the Beast has brought in $217.6 million domestically and another $244.3 million internationally. This

Flatliners Remake Wants Vampire Diaries Star Nina Dobrev

Flatliners Remake Wants Vampire Diaries Star Nina Dobrev
Just over a year ago, Nina Dobrev announced she would be leaving her hit series The Vampire Diaries to pursue more work on the big screen. Earlier this year, she landed a role in XXX: The Return of Xander Cage alongside Vin Diesel, and now the actress is eyeing her follow-up to that project. Today we have a new report that the actress is in talks to join Sony Pictures' remake of the 1990 sci-fi classic Flatliners.

Ellen Page and Diego Luna are already on board to star, although nothing is known about the characters they're playing. Deadline reveals that Nina Dobrev is portraying Marlo, an overachieving student who is at the top of her class. The original film followed a group of medical students and close friends who conduct experiments with near death experiences. Each one of them has their heart stopped before being revived instantly, which causes them to

Fox Orders Lethal Weapon Pilot Starring Damon Wayans Jr.

Properties in Hollywood rarely ever die. Sometimes they stay dormant for a while, but given the right circumstances, we're bound to see practically every conceived property pop up at least twice. Rush Hour was a hit in the late 90s and early 2000s, and is in the works as a TV series, and along those same lines we have Lethal Weapon, a TV series based on the hit film series that spanned four films and eleven years.

TheWrap is now reporting that Fox has ordered a TV pilot that will work as a reboot of the franchise. The pilot will star actor Damon Wayans, who many might recognize from Happy Endings, New Girl, Let's Be Cops, and the most recent episode of Brooklyn Nine-nine. He will be taking on the role of Roger Murtaugh, which was made famous by Danny Glover in the films. As of this writing, there is

Weekend Report -'Compton' Another Universal Smash

Weekend Report -'Compton' Another Universal Smash
Universal is estimating that Straight Outta Compton made $56M in 2,757 theaters, a remarkable $20,345 per screen average. Compton easily bested the other wide release, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which is under-performing with an estimated $13.5M. The Top 12, at $133.6M, is up 4% from last year when The Expendables 3 shocked many by opening in 4th place with $15.9M, beaten not only by holdovers Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Guardians of the Galaxy but by the other newcomer to the schedule, Let's Be Cops, which opened to $17.8M. If Compton ends up with actuals of $56M that would make it the sixth best August opening of all time, coming in ahead of 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes with $54M but behind Signs with $60M in 2002. The well-reviewed bio-pic of the rap group N.W.A., was produced, along with others, by original band members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, as well as by their director,

Best and Worst of 'Vacation': It's not that bad is it?

Best and Worst of 'Vacation': It's not that bad is it?
This probably wasn't the reaction Warner Bros. was expecting when they moved the new comedy "Vacation" from October to July.  The fifth big screen edition of the franchise that helped make Chevy Chase a star was supposed to be a summer comedy "surprise."  This year's "Meet the Millers" or "Let's Be Cops," but, um, actually funny.  That doesn't seem to be the case. Directed by the "Horrible Bosses" writing team of John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, "Vacation" earned just a B Cinemascore from audiences polled after seeing it (an average score is actually an A).  Critics weren't that kind either.  It landed with a terrible 33 out of 100 grade on Metacritic and scored just 26% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes which is pretty rotten. And, no, that's not good for its long term prospects at the box office.  Still, is it really that bad?  Is "Vacation" really one of the worst movies of the year?

Update: Hayley Atwell & Chris Evans Drop The Dubsmash Gauntlet; K.O. Clark Gregg

If you follow Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger) on Twitter, you probably know by now that over the past few weeks, she's more or less become the queen of Dubsmash, a popular new iOS app that allows users to lipsync with popular songs, movie lines, and a variety of other sounds. Over the past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, Atwell found her Dubsmash skills put to the test as she and Agent Carter co-star James D'Arcy (Let's Be Cops) found themselves locked in a fierce competition with Clark Gregg (The Avengers) and the cast of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.. In case you missed Cbm's recap on Sunday night, the final entry featured the full Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. cast singing along to Queen's "We Are The Champions" before revealing Gregg decked out in a full Peggy Carter outfit, red hat and all.

The Ghostbusters Remake Just Added 4 Great Supporting Stars

Director Paul Feig's upcoming Ghostbusters reboot has already put together a pretty great ensemble of stars - including Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, and Chris Hemsworth - but today the roster has gotten even deeper. That's because new reports have revealed that the in-production blockbuster has added four more actors to the cast. The Wrap has the scoop on these new additions, but let's break them down one-by-one, shall we? Andy Garcia was a pretty busy guy in 2014, voicing a blue bird in Rio 2, teaming with Jeremy Renner on the drama Kill The Messenger, and looking for laughs in Let's Be Cops, and now his 2016 is looking a lot more interesting thanks to his role in Ghostbusters. While the precise details of his role are being kept a secret for now, apparently he will be playing the mayor of New York City in the movie.
