On his press junket for Captain America: Civil War, Robert Downey Jr. revealed some surprising information about another film franchise of his, Sherlock Holmes! Shortlist says the actor says he has spoken to director Guy Ritchie, and they are discussing the third installment for the film! From the interview...
"We’re talking about it right now. NOW. I can’t wait...We can do some preliminary stuff. If we could shoot it on Skype, we could have it done in a week. I know Guy Ritchie loves me as much as I love him – and he damn well should. When we’re making those Sherlock movies it is off the hook. We’ll attempt to make one this year. It really is a big deal to go and do those movies. I’m tired all the time, but I’m excited about it."
Making another film this year will be a tall order for Downey Jr., who has been on a nonstop film spree for the past eight years! I'm excited to hear we will be getting another Sherlock Holmes, but damn, slow down, RDJ!
After Arrested Development, I'll watch any comedy Mitch Hurwitz is involved with! That said, I'm putting a lot aside to try out Lady Dynamite. This short trailer looks ten kinds of weird, and I don't know exactly how to describe it? Luckily Netflix has a description...
This is the true story of a woman who loses -- and then finds -- her shit.
Lady Dynamite is a 12-episode half-hour comedy from Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development) and Pam Brady (South Park) starring comedian-actress Maria Bamford. Based on what she has accepted to be “her life,” the semi-autobiographical, semi-surreal series is a truthful look at the highs and lows of Bamford’s life -- as an actor on the rise, during her hospitalization for bipolar disorder, and through her present life in LA, where she’s reached a middle ground and found love.
They got the surreal part down pat. Check the series out May 20th!
Have you ever heard of Roger Rabbit 2: The Toon Platoon?! It's probably a good thing it never happened, as the whole movie sounds like an insane mess! Just to give you a taste of what to expect from Rejected Ideas video...Roger Rabbit takes on Hitler. It only gets crazier from there, so check out the video below!
After a quick teaser a few weeks ago, we now have our first full trailer for the second Adam Sandler Netflix collaboration, and it doesn't look half bad! The Do-Over looks to be another comedy that, unlike The Ridiculous 6, actually looks worth watching! First off, I'm always glad to see David Spade in a film! Second, Sandler is playing a supporting role. Third, no Native Americans stormed off this set, so it may not be racially insensitive!
All jokes aside, I have high hopes for this one! Here's a description:
The life of a bank manager is turned upside down when a friend from his past manipulates him into faking his own death and taking off on an adventure.
Simple enough. Fingers crossed that it's good! The film hits Netflix on May 27th.
Chuck Lorre is a television icon. His credits include Roseanne, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory...the list goes on for quite a bit. Recently, Lorre was given a shout-out in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt for writing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song and I had to read more about it!
Luckily not much reading was required, as I found an interview in which Lorre talks about the experience, and how he basically swooped in at the 11th hour for a lack of a better option. Pretty crazy considering the legacy he has in television!
With the premiere of Game of Thrones season 6 coming this Sunday, I figured it'd be best to remind you of some of the show's most memorable moments. Those moments can get even more memorable when you act them out in public, as you'll learn from the folks at Whatever. Obviously if you're not caught up, don't watch this! You'll get some major things spoiled for you!
This idea is as cruel as it is funny. A new YouTube channel Craigslist Casting posts fake scripts for aspiring actors wishing to make it big, and then posts their auditions. This first episode features actors auditioning for the role of Billy Ding. Billy will apparently be featured in an indie film starring Seth Rogen.
It's kind of mean in the sense that these guys think they have a shot to be in a movie...but then again, I don't think any of them are professionally trained actors. Who would you cast for the role of Billy Ding?
Oh just a heads up, things get a bit NSFW for language in this video so throw some headphones on or hook it up to a loudspeaker. Your preference, really.
