The producer of Bridesmaids and The Heat, Paul Feig, announced this week—via Twitter—that he will make an all-female Ghostbusters with Katie Dippold cowriting the script. The Sony film is expected to star “hilarious women,” but there’s no word on who those women will be yet. Indiewire has the details for everything that is already official for Ghostbusters 3 here.
Sony also announced this week that they will produce 26 episodes of a Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: The Series. The traditionally-animated series is expected to air globally, and it will follow the same general storyline of the two kid-beloved computer animated movies that CT reviewed here and here.Vulture has the details about this announcement and the story’s adaption from a 1978 children’s book series.
Tom Hanks’ latest, Inferno, was pushed back by almost a year for these reasons. Will Smith will star in an upcoming Warner Bros. film, Focus, and the trailer is out. The most basic premise is, “There’s two kinds of people in this world, there’s hammers and nails. You decide which one you want to be.” And on a lighter note, Disney released the first teaser trailer for George Clooney’s latest film, Tomorrowland, slated to hit theaters in May 2015.
By way of casting announcements: Jennifer Jason Leigh will star in Tarantino’s Hateful Eight and Malin Akerman will star in the Yahoo! original scripted comedy series called Sin City Saints (also a Paul Feig production). More of the cast is listed here ,but most notable is Yahoo’s increasing involvement in TV production—especially after that one time they saved Community from cancellation.
