Blumhouse Wolfman Movie Script Still In Development With Ryan Gosling

The script for Blumhouse Pictures remake of The Wolfman starring Ryan Gosling is still in development says producer Jason Blum. The Wolfman is one of the most iconic of the Universal Monsters, having first appeared in the 1941 film starring Lon Channey Jr. In 2010, a remake starring Benenco Tel Toro in the title role opened in theaters after a very troubled production to negative reviews and was a box-office bomb. After Universal attempted to relaunch their monster's property with the critical...

Pitch Perfect TV Series With Adam Devine Will Sing Again On Peacock

"Pitch Perfect," the three-film franchise about co-eds who sing acapella mash-ups of popular songs, will continue as a streaming series. Peacock has announced a straight-to-series order for a show that is annoyingly called "Pitch Perfect." (Can we put a moratorium on franchise entries being named the exact same thing as other entries in its own franchise? Please? Thank you.) But while the film trilogy focused on the women of the Barden University Bellas, this show is seemingly focused on one of ...

Where The Fore Are We? Will Reunite Wet Hot American Summer Folks For A New Musical

Director David Wain and actress Elizabeth Banks have worked together several times over the years. After first collaborating on the cult classic camp comedy "Wet Hot American Summer," the two reunited on the series "Wainy Days" and Universal's "Role Models."

How To Rosé the Snoop Dogg Way

Wine marketing is oftentimes painfully boring. I’d rather watch paint dry than see a wine ad. Wine ads—like some winery tasting room staff—can be stuffy, talkative, and off-point. Thankfully, change is coming to the wine industry. In June, we reported on Elizabeth Banks and her connection to Archer Roose. Now, it’s Snoop Doggy Dogg’s turn.

‘Dracula’ Spin-Off ‘Renfield’ is an “Extremely Violent Comedy”

As Universal continues to revive its classic monsters, several different titles have been announced. One such title is Renfield, a movie focused on Dracula’s bug-eating minion. And according to producer Robert Kirkman, Renfield is going to be a bit different from the other upcoming Universal movies. For one thing, it’s being described as an “extremely violent comedy.” After the Dark Universe crashed and burned, it looked like Universal was truly clueless about what to do with its classic mon...

Anyone with a PC and an inkling for action role-playing games will know that the Diablo series is one of the premier ways to grind away the hours slaying demons.
