New Godfather Prequel Novel In Development

Filed under: Film Flickers

Move over, Gottis! The Corleone family wants another crack at the limelight!

Mario Puzo's bestselling mafia novel, The Godfather, spawned the Oscar-winning trilogy of films and worldwide norireity. Now, a new novel will hit shelves next summer based off an unproduced screenplay written by Puzo, who died of a heart attack in 1999. The book, The Family Corleone, will read as a prequel to the events of the original novel and will be constructed by Ed Falco, a novelist and ironically, the uncle of actress Edie Falco, aka Carmelo Soprano.

Geez, first Mob Wives, then the Gotti flick, now this. Hollywood's getting mafia crazy!

Paging David Chase! Might be time to dust off that Sopranos: The Motion Picture script you've been hiding!

Bye Bye, Blockbuster! We're Gonna Miss You So!

Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.DisneySad SadBusiness Blitz

blockbuster going up for sale

At least this isn't unexpected. We've known this was coming for a while.

In an effort to save themselves from Chapter 7 liquidation, Blockbuster is putting itself up for a sale auction this April.

Disney, other Hollywood studios, AND other creditors are owed over $100 million by Blockbuster, but the company was able to reach an agreement with its creditors.

According to the agreement terms, Blockbuster has been given a proposed April 4 sale date, which will be "followed by a court hearing to approve the sale on April 7."

Guess we'll see if Blockbuster is able to survive on any level after the sale. Once they're gone, that will more or less mark the end of video rental stores.

Kinda sad. Netflix is great, but there was something kind of fun about the experience of browsing for movies in the store.

Plus, it was a social occasion too! No better way to strike up conversation than shared enthusiasm for The Godfather Part I or II or III.

Are U gonna miss Blockbuster?

Oh, Tyler Perry!

What on EARTH do you have in store for us now?!

Check out the new posters for the director's latest ca$h cow flick, Madea's Big Happy Family, which, as you can see, may look a little familiar to the 'seasoned moviegoer' (above)!

LOLz! Yeah, not sure if this is a sign that he's just completely succumbed to self-parody at this point, but all we know is that his version of the Black Swan poster is about eight times more terrifying than the entirety of the actual movie!

Thoughts??

Robert De Niro Imparts Wisdom To The World

robert de niro gives wisdom

From playing The Godfather to playing Ben Stiller's father-in-law, Robert De Niro has done it all, and in the January 2011 issue of Esquire, he imparts some of his wisdom to the world.

Here are a few golden wisdom nuggets from De Niro:

Those who say don't know. Those who know don't say. That holds up over time.

If it's the right chair, it doesn't take too long to get comfortable in it.

If you don't do it the right way now, it'll never be what it should be — and it's there forever.

Be brave, but not reckless.

Now is now. Then is then. And the future will be what the future will be. So enjoy the moment while you're in it. Now is a great time.

We like this a lot, Robert, and we LOVE that last one! Being mindful and enjoying the moment is SO important! We completely agree!

Do U agree with Bobby D's wisdom nuggets?
