After several attempts, it appears Paramount’s plans for a big screen adaptation of Baywatch is finally coming together. Over the years it’s gone through vastly different iterations ranging from serious fare to a screwball comedy and everything in between. With comedy writer Justin Malen rewriting the script and Sean Anders and John Morris, the team behind We’re the Millers and Horrible Bosses 2 directing, it appears it’s a straight comedy.

Don’t get too excited. It’s not another Harry Potter movie, although Daniel Radcliffe finds himself in another magical role.

The 25-year-old actor trades in his wizard wand for a magician’s hat. He’s reportedly snagged a role in the upcoming Now You See Me sequel. Michael Caine broke the news via a recent interview.

“There’s a sequel to Now You See Me and we’re shooting in London,” Michael told Hey You Guys blog. “I shoot in December, the whole of December in London, and my son is Harry Potter. I thought it’d be funny, me and Daniel Radcliffe as father and son.”

Netflix Inks Four Movie Deal With Adam Sandler

Netflix is really serious about getting into the original movie-making game. Just days after announcing its first original feature film, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend, the Internet streaming media service makes another announcement that bypasses the traditional theatrical release system.

Netflix has worked a deal with Adam Sandler to make four original feature films. Had this been inked during Sandler’s hey day this would’ve been epic. However, given Sandler’s rocky box office record as of late, it might not sound like the most savviest of deals. In Netflix’s defense, it claims that 48-year-old comedian is still popular.

“People love Adam’s films on Netflix and often watch them again and again. His appeal spans across viewers of all ages — everybody has a favorite movie, everyone has a favorite line — not just in the US but all over the world,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

Movie Based On Tetris In The Works

Movies based on popular video games isn’t a new concept. Super Mario Bros., Street Fighter, Tomb Raider, Tron and Need for Speed are just a few examples. For the most part though, those had somewhat of a narrative that screenwriters could draw inspiration from. I’m not sure exactly what a film adapted from the classic 80s video game Tetris would look like. Can you?

Threshold Entertainment teams up with the Tetris Company to develop a live-action film based on the game. The company’s CEO Larry Kasanoff is best known for bringing the Mortal Kombat games to the big screen. “It’s a very big, epic sci-fi movie,” Kasanoff tells Speakeasy exclusively. “This isn’t a movie with a bunch of lines running around the page. We’re not giving feet to the geometric shapes.”

Liam Neeson Is On The Run In TAK3N (Movie Trailer)

How much bad luck can one man take? First, they took his daughter. Then his wife was taken hostage. And now Liam Neeson is on the run after one of his loved ones turns up dead. I’m glad I’m not related to this guy.

Neeson claims Taken 3, stylized TAK3N (how Se7en of them), is the last installment of the franchise. It may very well be, but I’m sure the 62-year-old will pop up in a similar role. Aren’t all of the Irish actor’s films starting to look the same? The airplane thriller Non-Stop could easily pass as part of the Taken series.

Movie Synopsis

Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. Consumed with rage, and framed for the crime, he goes on the run to evade the relentless pursuit of the CIA, FBI and the police. For one last time, Mills must use his “particular set of skills,” to track down the real killers, exact his unique brand of justice, and protect the only thing that matters to him now – his daughter.

Returning for a third go round are Maggie Grace and Famke Janssen. Joining the franchise is Forest Whitaker, playing a law enforcement agent chasing Neeson down. Taken 3 hits theaters on January 9, 2015. Watch the trailer below.

With Orange Is The New Black and House Of Cards nabbing multiple nominations, Netflix proved they were a force to be reckoned with at the Primetime Emmys. Is the daddy of all awards show- the Oscars- their next target? It would appear so.

For all you trivia buffs, be sure to commit this to memory. The film they’re producing is the sequel to the 2000 martial arts hit film, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

“The moviegoing experience is evolving quickly and profoundly, and Netflix is unquestionably at the forefront of that movement,” producer Harvey Weinstein says in a statement. “We are tremendously excited to be continuing our great relationship with Netflix and bringing to fans all over the world the latest chapter in this amazing and intriguing story.”

On numerous occasions Michael Strahan has playfully talked about appearing in the Magic Mike sequel. It’s been a running joke whenever Channing Tatum appeared on Live! With Kelly & Michael. On Monday’s episode the 42-year-old television personality confirmed a role in the upcoming Magic Mike XXL. Excited for Strahan to shake what his momma gave him on the big screen?

In other Magic Mike-related news. Last week, Ellen DeGeneres scored her hot gardener Nick a screen test for the film. If you’re watching Season 12 of the long-running daytime show, Nick is a new addition that’s often shirtless. #thxellen.

The buff piece of eye candy first appeared on Ellen earlier this year as one of The Cream Pies. Not sure exactly why DeGeneres’ team didn’t use his real name Bill Reillich, but oh well. Whatever his name is, he’s definitely got the guns, the abs… I could go on. Watch gardener Nick’s meeting with the film’s producer below, along with Strahan dropping the big news.
