Friends feature film rumors begin again

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 29th 2009 1:02PM
friends_NBCYou know, ever since Friends went off the air, rumors have cropped up again and again that there would be a big screen version of the show, presumably picking up the storylines from the grand finale. Of course, if you remember the great stories on Joey, maybe post-Friends storytelling isn't such a grand idea after all.

However, at least one person is sure that a feature film is coming. James Michael Tyler, who poured the coffee at Central Perk as Gunther (he also ogled Rachel), was asked about the movie version and Tyler said that Friends: The Movie is definitely on.

What do you think about a CSI feature film?

Grissom in blueAre you ready for more CSI? I mean, there's original CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, NCIS (which isn't part of the franchise, but has the letters), plus all these shows are in reruns and now, William Petersen is ready for a big screen CSI. He's downright positive about it, even though he himself exited the TV show last December. I don't know if a movie version of CSI is really necessary, but to hear Petersen talk, there are some valid reasons.

For his point of view, some stories couldn't be shown on TV because of the graphic or sexual content. He'd like to see a movie version go where no TV CSI has gone before.

Don't give up on that Jericho movie just yet; the producers haven't

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 18th 2009 7:00PM
JerichoYes, there are plans to move forward with that comic adaptation of CBS's post-apocalyptic series Jericho. But that doesn't mean that the proposed movie is dead in the water. Of course, it doesn't sound like it's exactly moving forward either. Co-executive producer of Jericho Dan Shotz said things like "we've been developing a feature to hopefully make" and how they'd like to "hopefully get that launched" in his interview with Sci Fi Wire.

So it looks like they're hoping the comic will keep the momentum alive and help them get this move greenlit. Maybe they don't realize that the best-selling comic book each month barely breaks 100,000 copies sold unless there's a major event (like Barack Obama appearing on the cover of The Amazing Spider-Man). Still, anything that will keep the story alive is better than nothing. I can't help but think, though, that jumping into the comic deal is an indication that the proposed movie adaptation of Jericho wasn't going well.

Veronica Mars movie is a go, says Rob Thomas

cast of Veronica MarsIf you are a Veronica Mars fan like I am, then you are probably still mourning the loss of the series; well, the first two seasons anyway. I'm sure the series hadn't run its course and that it would have rebounded from the fiasco known as season three, otherwise known as Piz.

OK, so maybe Piz grew on me a little, and he did keep Logan nice and angry, because nobody likes a happy Logan. And besides, would you want to see that sappy, insipid Logan in a feature film?

Did you like the way I slipped that in there? Feature film? Yep, Rob Thomas has confirmed that since the order on Cupid has been slashed from thirteen to eight episodes, he'll have time to write the Veronica Mars movie. And he spills the beans on some other juicy tidbits about the film too:

J.J. Abrams offers scoops about the new Star Trek movie

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 19th 2008 8:38AM
Quinto spockI went to see Quantum of Solace over the weekend anxious to see the second Daniel Craig iteration as James Bond, and had the chance to see the big screen full trailer for J.J. Abrams' re-imagining of Star Trek. Of the latter, I'd be very skeptical. After reading many of Abrams comments --like "I've never been a fan of Star Trek" -- my Trekkie (not Trekker) heart fears that the Lost/Alias creator had bungled the ST that I know so well.

So, now that I've seen the trailer, I'm even more concerned. Oy vey, what has Abrams done to the Trek universe? The trailer looked more generic sci-fi that ST to me. And where was the iconic music? Why was Kirk using his middle name; I don't think he ever did that on the TV series!

J.J. addressed the media and shared some clips and information -- but no photos -- of the feature which won't be hitting theaters till May 8, 2009. I'm a little more relieved by the description of the scenes. Here's the gist of what they're about:

Logo plans first feature film

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 26th 2007 4:02PM

noah's arcLogo --the gay, lesbian bi-sexual and transgender network-- is taking the first steps toward continuing its short-lived series Noah's Arc as a feature film. The series, which focuses on Noah and Wade, two black gay screenwriters and their friends in Los Angeles, ended last year after its second season. The feature film, which will continue where the series left off, is still in the very early stages of development, but should hit theaters in 2008 according to Logo. This would be the first feature film developed by the new channel.

You can watch a full episode of the series here.

Fraggle Rock feature film is on the way, says Henson Company

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 20th 2006 8:02PM
Fraggle RockEvery child of the '80s that had HBO shares an idelible memory from that time period... Shannon Tweed's breasts from Hot Dog: The Movie. Somewhat less indelible, but pretty memorable in its own right, was the Jim Henson series Fraggle Rock. Now comes word from the folks at the Henson Company that a full-length feature film version is in the works, written and executive produced by none other than Ahmet Zappa.

In the movie, Gobo, Wembley, Mokey, Boober and Red finally leave the underground world of Fraggle Rock and go into what the Hensons call "outer space", otherwise known as the outside world. In fact, they'll actually interact with (gulp) human beings (what are the odds that one of them is going to be Kelly Ripa?). Zappa is involved to not only help write the screenplay, but the music for the movie, as well. No word on a title or release date just yet.
