Jason Sudeikis is in negotiation to play Fletch in Fletch Won, a Warner Bros. reboot of the 1980s Fletch films. Chevy Chase first brought the title character to life in 1985's Fletch. The film follows an investigative newspaper reporter, Irwin M. Fletcher , and is based on the first of a series of novels written by Gregory Mcdonald . Fletch earned generally positive reviews upon its release and did well at the box office. It subsequently developed a cult following, and a second film, Fletch Lives, was released in 1989. Chase also starred in the sequel. A prequel has been in the works for years now,... more

Wes Anderson Dreams of a Europe Before Bombs Fell

NEW YORK - A new Wes Anderson film arrives like a magician's latest illusion, greeted by questions of not just "How does he do it?" but "What is it, exactly?" Anderson, like few other directors, has perpetually kept critics and moviegoers off-balance with his idiosyncratic blend of orchestrated whimsy, deep-rooted melancholy and deadpan slapstick. When he privately screened his second film, "Rushmore," for Pauline Kael, the rarely uncertain critic responded, "I don't know what you've got here, Wes." Lacking a more sufficient barometer, his movies are typically first judged on a scale of how "Wes Anderson-y" it is. On that count, his late... more

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Connecticut could become the first state to curb loud movies under proposed legislation that's drawing opposition from the Motion Picture Association of America. The legislature's Public Safety and Security Committee is considering the bill, which would prevent theaters from showing a film or preview that exceeded 85 decibels. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recommends noise should be kept below 85 decibels for workers for eight hours to minimize hearing loss. "Hopefully this will be a wakeup call to the theater owners and the MPAA to get their act together and do something that's good for the... more

William "Wild Bill" Guarnere of South Philadelphia, a member of the famed 101st Airborne Division whose World War II exploits were portrayed in theTV mini-series Band of Brothers, died Saturday, March 8, at Jefferson University Hospital of a ruptured aortic aneurysm. He was a month shy of 91. Guarnere was taken to the hospital from his home of 70 years in South Philadelphia, son Gene Guarnere of Broomall said. Guarnere didn't talk about the war when his two sons were growing up, even though he organized Army reunions beginning in 1947 -- and even though he lost his right leg while helping a wounded comrade. "He never said a word," his s... more

Movie Review: ‘300: Rise of an Empire’

300 rise of an empire

The glistening abs are back in "300: Rise of an Empire," and they've been doing crunches. Like its forerunner, the 2007 hit "300," "Rise of an Empire" again plunges us into bloody, hyper-stylized Greek history: mythology with muscles. The computer-generated warfare franchise is now a third of the way to a six-pack. Made clearly to capitalize on the popularity of "300," "Rise of an Empire" is something like collected behind-the-scenes from the Persian invasion featured in "300." Whereas the first film chronicled, ab by ab, the Spartans' heroic stand in the Battle of Thermopylae against Xerxes's Persian invasion, "Rise of an Empire" is abo... more
