Production of Scarlett Johansson's 'Queen of Scots' Halted

June 05, 2008 03:00:04 GMT


Though the fate of actors strike is still marked with a big question mark, the possibility of its occurrence is enough to scare off many Hollywood filmmakers in gearing up the production of their movies in this waiting period. To avoid any problem resulting from the strike, most filmmakers decided to push back their films' production date until after the June 30 expiration date of the SAG contract and that is exactly what happens with "Mary Queen of Scots".

Recently, news coming from the drama movie starring Hollywood beauty Scarlett Johansson suggested that the production of the tidbit has come to a hold. On Saturday, May 31, the production company behind the flick has confirmed the postponing of the filming that was scheduled to be taken in Ireland sometime in June amid fears of the impending strike, especially with Johansson being one of the SAG members. On the delaying, Element Pictures' spokesperson explained, "With strike action involving the Screen Actors Guild looming we are waiting to see what happens. We are hoping that things get resolved in the next few weeks."

'Beverly Hills Cop 4' to Be Aimed for Children

June 04, 2008 09:48:06 GMT


Back in early May, an upsetting report came from "Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins". At the time, it was reported that the action movie about the killing machines is planned to be getting a PG-13 rating. Less than a month following that news, another great '80s action film, "Beverly Hills Cop IV", is reported to be also aiming for the PG-rating.

Talking about reviving the R-rated movie to the big screen, appointed director Brett Ratner hinted that the fourth installment of the tidbit made famous by Eddie Murphy is inclining to be kid-friendly and it may be targeting even younger audience than "Terminator Salvation" or even "Live Free or Die Hard". To MTV, the "X-Men: The Last Stand" helmer revealed, "10-year-old kids, 12-year-old kids don't really know the old 'Beverly Hills Cop.' So it's an opportunity to make it new for kids. The same way it felt for me watching 'Beverly Hills Cop' when I was a kid, that's what I want to do for kids today."

Po has a big dream, a dream of becoming a kung fu hero. However, he is big, fat and extremely clumsy and to make matter worse, he is the laziest animal on the planet. No wonder that nobody in his entire village ever believes in his capability of making his dream a reality. Often being the object of ridicule, he tries to prove himself in a competition looking for the ultimate Dragon Warrior. Amazingly, he ends up with the title and a whole lot more as he now has to prepare himself to live up to the legendary role and save his town from the great villain lurking from a distance.

Promising to present a 'zero to hero' tale of a noodle serving panda who gets once in a lifetime chance of becoming a kung-fu legend, the animation comedy film "Kung Fu Panda" is about to give movie-lovers opportunity to laugh out loud and to collect massive success at the box office. With the Academy Award-nominated director Mark Osborne serving as its co-helmer and a slew of A-list actors, including Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Lucy Liu and Dustin Hoffman filling up the characters' voices, it seems that those are not hard to achieve. At least, most of the movie critics believe so.
