Warner Bros. has apparently looked at its DVD shelf and randomly selected '60s TV series 'Gilligan's Island' as the next property to get the big-screen modernization. The studio has chosen to polish off the property and give it a go with 'Jobs' and 'Book of Mormon' star Josh Gad, who will co-write and star in the film adaptation. And it should be a pretty easy, paint-by-numbers job since the roles and plot are all spelled out in the theme song.
Sad news today, as legendary film and stage actor Peter O'Toole has passed away in London at the age of 81. The Irish actor, who just announced his retirement last year, was known for his work in films like 'Lawrence of Arabia,' 'The Lion in Winter,' 'Goodbye Mr. Chips,' and the 2006 film 'Venus,' for which he was nominated for an Academy Award.
We're all pretty excited about Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' especially after the closing credits tag at the end of 'Thor: The Dark World,' featuring Benicio Del Toro's mysterious Collector character -- but the character we're most intrigued about is, of course, Rocket Raccoon. The hero is being voiced by Bradley Cooper, and while we've gotten a peek at what he'll look like in the film, we still have no idea what he'll sound like. But now we're getting some hints as Cooper himself recently opened up about voicing the character.
As previously reported, Sacha Baron Cohen has been working on a James Bond-style spy spoof over at Paramount, and today we're pleased to relay that the project not only has a title, but a director as well. 'Now You See Me' helmer Louis Leterrier has been chosen to tackle this not-so-top-secret and -- judging by the talent involved -- hopefully very hilarious upcoming new job.
As reported yesterday, 'Fast and Furious' star Paul Walker died tragically in a car crash in California at the age of 40. Walker and his co-stars were taking a Thanksgiving break from filming 'Fast and Furious 7,' which was scheduled to resume shooting next week -- but with the star's life cut short, Universal, director James Wan, and the rest of the team behind the upcoming film face an unfortunate question: how will they proceed with production on the sequel? News has broken today that shooting on the film has been delayed, but 'Fast and Furious 7' is still very much happening.
It is with heavy hearts that we bring you this tragic news at the end of the holiday weekend -- 'Fast and Furious' star Paul Walker has passed away at the age of 40.

While we patiently await Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,' we've got some potentially exciting news courtesy of the Weinstein Company -- there may be even more 'Sin City' stories in our near future. Along with the upcoming sequel, Bob Weinstein says a television series is also in development. Hopefully we won't have to wait several years to see the results of this project as well.
Following the premiere of the first official trailer for Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah,' we're starting to see alternate versions -- like this international trailer -- pop up. The one above features some new footage sprinkled throughout stuff we've previously seen before. What we have seen already is stunning, and the new imagery is intriguing, like an earlier shot of violence and a couple of additional wide shots of large groups of people descending on the ark itself.
It was hinted yesterday that we'd be seeing a teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar' very, very soon, and now we have official confirmation of where and when fans will be able to sneak their very first peek at the newest film from the 'Dark Knight' director. The teaser will play in front of 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,' which means we'll be seeing it in just a few short weeks!

Although they're still searching for their cast and the script is being reworked, we can report a bit of wonderfully optimistic news: some serious work has reportedly begun on J.J. Abrams' 'Star Wars: Episode 7' -- namely, a very important spacecraft has already been put together. If what we've learned is true, the Millennium Falcon has been built and is ready for take off!
Add 'The Last of the Us' to the pile of projects ready to capitalize on the popularity of zombies in pop culture ... maybe. It looks like Sony has registered some highly suspect domain names, leading us to believe that the corporation is preparing for a film adaptation of its incredibly popular video game 'The Last of Us.' It is the day after Thanksgiving, so there's no better way to celebrate than by capitalizing on a sure thing.
