dumbo reboot

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a 3D CGI flying elephant?!

Disney is officially rebooting everything! It was just announced the Mouse House is developing a live action version of Dumbo to be written by Transformers scribe Ehren Kruger!

We hope this reboot is more than meets the eye…uh, we mean, ear!

With Cinderella in post-production, Jungle Book in pre-production, Beauty and the Beast also being worked on, and Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent both big hits, we wonder what other Disney favorites are slated to get the live action treatment!

Aladdin? The Little Mermaid?! Frozen?!?

Hey if an elephant can fly, anything can happen! We just hope there aren't too many gratuitous explosions.

Kevin Williamson Speaks Out About Scream 4! Why He Really Left The Project!

kevin-williamson-speaks-out-about-scream-4

Wow. The truth is finally out!

Ever since Scream 4 began production last year, there have been rumors of problems on set and massive re-writes, ultimately leading to writer Kevin Williamson dropping the project and refusing to discuss what went down publicly - until now!

In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, the writer has finally opened up about what exactly went down between he and exec Bob Weinstein, what led to Scream 3 writer Ehren Kruger coming in to do re-writes, and if he still supports the long-awaited sequel!

He explains:

Oh, I got in a big fight with Bob Weinstein. God love him. I’ve worked with the man for 16 years out of my 16-year career. We get in some fights. We’re a very dysfunctional family over there at the Weinstein Co. We got into a massive fight creatively and we hugged it out and then we moved on. Oh just, you know — I felt strongly about this and he felt strongly about that and then I did this and that wasn’t right. Everyone was second-guessing everything because everyone wanted it to be so perfect. That’s exactly what happened. The one thing that Bob and I connect on very basically, why we’ve worked successfully together for 16 years, is we’re passionate. And no one is more passionate than Bob Weinstein. And it is that passion that allows you to make a movie where he will believe in you and trust in you and it’s also that passion that can cause fights and cause struggle. For 16 years, he’s kept me gainfully employed. I love him. Yes, we got into the fight, but then the big clincher came: Contractually, I had signed on to do The Vampire Diaries [Williamson's series for The CW]. You know, the little thing called first and second position? I was in first position to do Vampire Diaries and second position to do Scream 4. So guess what? It was a contractual thing. Warner Bros called up and they said, “Dude where are you? You have a show that’s on the air — where are you?” I did double duty as much as I could but The Vampire Diaries was also very important to me. But then one blog got a hold of it. It’s fine. What are you going to say? Yeah we got into a massive fight, but at the same time the fight ended and we hugged it out and we continued forward and we tried to make the best movie possible. But it was also very raw and sensitive.

I’m very supportive of the film and I hope everybody likes it. Not for a second would I dare do that to Wes Craven and Neve and Courteney and David and Bob Weinstein, who made my career. The reality is I did I worked very hard on the film. I did my darndnest to try and make a really good movie. I gave it my all. I wrote everything I thought I could write. Then they had to film it and I had to get back to The Vampire Diaires. So I think I really contributed. I hope it all turns out! My fingers are crossed!

Wow! He really lays it at all!

We can't imagine how much pressure must have been on their shoulders for this movie to be a hit, given the amount of fan dedication, so we can't blame them for having a blow-out over a creative difference!

Clearly, it happened how it happened, and they both have the movie's best interest at heart, so hopefully there isn't any lingering animosity and the movie turns out to be AMAZING! We having a feeling that it won't disappoint!

And check out the rest of Kevin's interview, and whether or not he's willing to do a Scream 5AFTER THE JUMP!

Devastating News For Scream 4 - Writer Kevin Williamson Replaced!

wenn2765956jb.jpg

We could tell that there were some creative conflicts, but this is terrible, terrible news.

Kevin Williamson has reportedly dropped out of production of Scream 4, and is being replaced by the writer who nearly killed the series with his shiteous Scream 3, Ehren Kruger.

We don't care that he wrote The Ring - let's be real, even Parker Posey and Jenny McCarthy couldn't save the third movie!

Apparently, Williamson is said to no longer have any involvement in the series, and the changes being made with the script are what's causing the actors to drop out.

According to sources, Lauren Graham's character was originally "a fun role. Not big, but it had some meaty scenes." In Kruger's revision, "the part was reduced. She had like four lines."

The deputy sheriff role, originally given to Lake Bell, has also been cut dramatically, and even Hayden Pain-in-the-Ass is "beyond frustrated with the changes" because her character "used to be really sharp" but is now "dumbed down significantly".

Another source explains:

"The script changes have put a real strain on the cast. The original 'Scream' cast members aren't happy with the way that things are happening, so it's probably a good thing that [Graham] dropped out before things get messy."

And it appears that even poor director Wes Craven is frustrated - he just took to his Twitter to write:

I have not been given control of the script. #SCREAM4

Sounds to us like the studio got involved and took everything great about this movie and completely fucked it up.

We hope the studio execs get their heads out of their ass and just let Wes and company do what they do best, before this entire project implodes in on itself!

Get on your hands and knees and beg Kevin Williamson back - NOW!

Thoughts??
