For several years, filmmaker Tyler Perry was planning an $800 million expansion of his studio in Atlanta – a plan that would’ve seen twelve sound stages added to the facility. Those plans are “currently and indefinitely” on hold due to OpenAI’s new text-to-video model Sora, which debuted last week, and others of its ilk according to a recent interview with THR. Speaking with the trade, Perry says he was “shocked” by the demonstrations of what the technology is able to do, and sees the potential: “I no longer would have to travel to locations. If I wanted to be in the snow in Colorado, it’s te ..read more

What will happen with “Scream VII” is still anybody’s guess at this point. Spyglass is still developing the film but having lost lead actresses Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega, along with planned director Christopher Landon, it seems likely the next entry will be something quite different. That’s a definite change of plan according to actor Skeet Ulrich. Ulrich was the lead male cast member in the first film and returned, with the help of some CG-assisted de-aging, in last year’s “Scream VI” . Visions of his Billy Loomis character served as something of an evil Jiminy Cricket for Barrera’s Sa ..read more

Netflix is currently filming a sixth and final season of “Cobra Kai,” whilst a new film take on “The Karate Kid” is also on the way bringing back stars from two prior incarnations. With almost every living cast member from the original films popping up in either of these productions, it begs the obvious question – where’s “The Next Karate Kid” star Hilary Swank. Swank played Julie Pierce in the widely panned 1994 film which served as a fourth installment of the original franchise. Despite the reaction to it, fans have long hoped Swank might make a cameo on”Cobra Kai”. In an interview with Coll ..read more

The reviews are for Netflix’s live-action adaptation of the acclaimed Nickelodeon animated series “Avatar: The Last Airbender” and the results are mixed. Neither a disaster like “Cowboy Bebop” (47% on RT) or a success like “One Piece” (85% on RT), reviews for the series are decidedly mixed – a far cry from the original 2005 cartoon which was universally praised. On Rotten Tomatoes the series sits at 61% positive with critics. That’s leagues better than M. Night Shyamalan’s prior live-action adaptation of the property in 2010, with that film earning an almost unheard-of rating of just 5% positi ..read more
