Just when you thought the cast couldn’t get any more star-studded, Sir Ian McKellen enters the scene. The 75-year-old actor is the latest to join Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty & The Beast.

He joins previously announced cast members Emma Watson (Belle), Daniel Stevens (The Beast), Luke Evans (Gaston), Josh Gad (Le Fou), Audra McDonald (Singing Wardrobe), Kevin Kline (Maurice) and Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts). There aren’t many roles left to fill. Have any guesses which one McKellen has been tapped to play? Find out below.

FOX Remaking The Rocky Horror Picture Show

In addition to their Grease remake, FOX is also developing one for The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Unlike the former, the reboot of 1975 musical comedy cult classic won’t be a live production.

According to Entertainment Weekly, this way the network will have an easier time attracting top talent who are fearful of performing without the safety net of retakes.

Kenny Ortega, the man behind High School Musical, is helming the project. He’ll work alongside the original producer of the film, Lou Adler. This won’t be FOX’s first experience with The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Glee previously paid homage to the film.

Who would you cast in the main roles? Hopefully Tim Curry or Susan Sarandon who appeared in the original make a cameo in the remake? Weigh in below.

Movie Review: The Longest Ride

In: Matt, Movies

The tenth film based on a Nicholas Sparks novel hits theatres today and also marks the big screen debut of Clint Eastwood’s swoon worthy son, Scott. One of those facts is much more intriguing than the other but I’ll get to that in a moment. SPOILER ALERT: it’s Scott.

The Longest Ride, or as some will undoubtedly call it, The Longest Nap, is an incredibly dull movie that attempts to tell two separate love stories that, like alcohol and texting, really don’t go well together.

The film stars the adorable Britt Robertson, who I had the pleasure of meeting a few years ago while she was in Vancouver filming The Secret Circle, as sophisticated art loving college girl Sophia who ends up falling for the charming, hunky, bull riding Luke (Eastwood). Their love story is intertwined with that of Ira (Alan Alda) and Ruth (Oona Chaplin), whose story is played out via letters Ira wrote to his wife read to him by Sophia after she helps save him from a car accident. It’s never really explained why he writes letters to her even though they live together but… I guess that wasn’t important because letters are so emotional and romantic.

Joe Manganiello Joins Pee-wee Movie

Never in a million years did I think I’d ever be jealous of Pee-wee Herman, but that day has come. I’m sure I’m not the only one who wouldn’t mind riding bitch on a motorcycle with arms hanging onto Joe Manganiello’s tight waist for dear life. Right?

The former True Blood actor joins the cast of Pee-wee’s Big Holiday. The last time Paul Reubens played his iconic character in a feature film was in Big Top Pee-wee back in 1988. Big Holiday doesn’t have a release date yet but will premiere on Netflix.

“I never really thought of Big Adventure as a family movie, but I didn’t try to make an adult movie or a kid movie,” he told Entertainment Weekly previously. “We wanted to make something that appealed to a wide age range, and I think that’s the case with this movie also.”

Pinocchio Is Disney’s Next Live Action Adaptation

No lie here. Disney is developing yet another live-action adaptation of one of their animated classics. Someone stop the insanity.

After all these years, Geppetto finally gets his wish. Pinocchio will be a real life boy. The 1940 classic is based on Carlo Collodi’s 1883 novel, The Adventures of Pinocchio. It tells the story of a wood-carver named Geppetto and his puppet who is brought to life.

Careful What You Wish For was shot back in 2013. One would think the studio would release the film to take advantage of Nick Jonas’ rising career. How bad is the film?

It does, however, have a release date of May 6, but in the Philippines. No word on when or if the formulaic thriller will ever see the light of day in North America. Fingers crossed that it does because the “Chains” singer looks pretty sexy in it.

Several stills from the Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum-directed film have surfaced online and they’re all hot. Jonas shows off various parts of his toned body while getting it on with his co-star Isabel Lucas with whom he’s having an affair with. Problem is, she’s married and her husband pops up dead.

Check out more sexy pics below along with the movie trailer. What better way to celebrate hump day than by worshipping Nick’s rump. Enjoy!!!

shes-all-that-remake

During the teen flick boom in the late 90s, She’s All That was one of the standouts. The comedy based on My Fair Lady and Pygmalion grossed more than $100 million worldwide and propelled its leading lady, Rachael Leigh Cooke, to stardom. The film also starred the likes of Freddie Prinze Jr., Usher, Gabrielle Union, Clea Duvall, Anna Paquin, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe and the late Paul Walker.

According to The Wrap, Miramax is developing a remake but with a twist. It’ll follow the main premise of the film but with diverse leads in mind.

princess-of-monaco

Grace of Monaco had everything going for it. The Weinstein Co. acquired the film in 2013 and it opened the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Nicole Kidman playing Hollywood darling turned royal icon Princess Grace is pure Oscar bait.

It was supposed to hit theaters in 2014 but the Weinsteins pulled it from their schedule. Reportedly it was because of the behind-the-scenes drama, specifically script changes and clashes with the film’s director Olivier Dahan.

The good news is the biopic will finally see the light of day. The bad news is it’s debuting on the Lifetime Network. A + E Networks made the announcement this week. How awful is the movie that execs felt compelled to play it on their channel known for cheesy biopics. Remember the trainwrecks that were the Aaliyah and Whitney Houston films?

I’m definitely going to watch Grace of Monaco when it airs on Lifetime on May 25. If I could sit through the Aaliyah one, I can certainly stomach two hours of Kidman navigating through this. Check out the theatrical trailer below if you haven’t already seen it yet.
