'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' Is Heading to the Big Screen

Another popular television series from yesteryear, in this case 1964-68, is being remade, reworked and revamped into a big screen movie. 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E,' one of the iconic spy shows spawned by the James Bond craze, has been tapped by Warner Brothers as a theatrical. The Hollywood Reporter reports that David Dobkins, best known for 'Wedding Crashers,' will direct 'The Man from UNCLE' and Max Borenstein is writing the script.

The big question now is not when or why, but who. Who will Warners choose to play Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin, the two super secret agents of United Network Command for Law Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.), and even if the casting is perfect, as a follow up, how will they inevitably screw it up? The track record for well-loved TV shows being rejiggered for the silver screen is awful.

Wedding Crashers crashes and burns

Tom GreenI always get depressed this time of the year because I know that along with the summer months come the end of all my favorite TV shows. In some cases, they go away forever and I am forced to replace them with lesser quality summer shows. This season, however, I received some truly happy news. Wedding Crashers has been canceled!

I am so over the so-called prank shows that pull the most harmless candy ass pranks. Shows like Wedding Crashers, Punk'd and Girls Behaving Badly are the modern version of Candid Camera. The difference is that Candid Camera did it first and in the early days of TV, it was truly groundbreaking. It is sad that fifty years later someone still thinks that practical jokes make for edgy TV.

Wedding Crashers meets Punk'd for Ashton Kutcher

ashton kutcherAshton Kutcher really loves Punking people, doesn't he? The next project for his production company, Katalyst Films, is a Wedding Crashers-style version of Punk'd. A team of actors (not sure if Ashton is part of it or not) will attend ceremonies and receptions and confuse the hell out of guests and the bridal party. This will definitely be interesting. Emotions are already running high at weddings and doing things to intentionally foul up the ceremony and/or wedding plans will probably not go over well with some brides and their mothers.

NBC has picked up six episodes, to air at an unspecified date next year.
