    “Pose” star Billy Porter is in negotiations to join Camila Cabello in Sony’s reimagined musical version of “Cinderalla.” If the deal goes through, Porter will play Cinderella’s fairy godmother. Sony had no comment. Cabello came on to the project in April with “Blockers” director Kay Cannon attached to helm and pen the script. Cabello will be involved in the music for the project, which grew out of an original idea from James Corden. The film will be produced by Corden and Leo Pearlman through their Fulwell73 banner. The new “Cinderella” will be a music-oriented version of the traditional tale of...

    Stoned Alone, an R-rated Home Alone re-imagining, is in the works from Fox and Ryan Reynolds. Reynolds, who just released Deadpool 2 with the studio, will produce the comedy about a 20-something stoner who, after missing the plane for his holiday ski trip, gets high and becomes paranoid that people are breaking into his house. While high, he tries to thwart the thieves who have actually, really broken into his house. Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider wrote the feature that will be directed by Augustine Frizzell, whose Sundance feature Never Goin' Back will soon be release by A24. Burrows and...
  • Foot Loose Remake

    Back in 1984 everybody cut "Footloose. Just admit it. We all did the dance. We all knew every move. And we all had a crush on Kevin Bacon. Now, 25 years later, with the news that Zac Efron is slated to star in the 2010 remake (and Bacon considering a cameo), we look back at the original cast members and the blockbuster hits, surprising career twists, as well as tragedy that have followed in their post-'Footloose' careers.

    The Day the Earth Stood Still would seem to have everything going for it: based on a sci-fi classic, featuring a big movie star and released right in the middle of a holiday movie season full of depressing headlines and depressing films when moviegoers would love to have a big, fun, scary movie to flock to and buzz about. Alas, this movie isn't going to do much to break us out of our state of depression. The truth is out there, all right. This movie is as clunky and unappealing as the space-saving acronym being used to avoid its endless...

    More than 50 years after the musical “West Side Story” had its original Broadway premiere, it is set to return in February in a darker, grittier, bilingual revival, the show’s producers said on Wednesday. In an element that its director, Arthur Laurents, said would heighten the passion and authenticity of the show, much of the dialogue — both spoken and sung — will be in Spanish. “They will speak Spanish where they would naturally,” Mr. Laurents said in a telephone interview from his home in Quogue, N.Y., adding that supertitles would be used to aid the audience. “The scenes with...

    This summer, the Sci Fi Channel gears up for the Aug. 10 premiere of Flash Gordon, a live-action series based on the original 1934 comic strip. The name may be familiar from the radio serials, novels, films, and other TV series the comic has inspired — but Sci Fi's series will go back to the very beginning of the hero's story. Smallville's Eric Johnson, who stars as Flash, knows a thing or two about that. The native Canadian called in on Victoria Day (and his day off) to give EW the scoop.
