Rebel Wilson And Charles Melton Set To Star In Road Trip K-Pop Comedy Film

Right before the holiday weekend, a new package hit the market, and several studios are reportedly very interested.

It’s being reported that Rebel Wilson and Charles Melton have signed on to star in a road trip comedy film titled K-Pop: Lost in America.

South Korean filmmaker JK Youn is directing and was written by Jeff Kaplan & Ian Springer, with a current draft by Karen McCullah & Kirsten ‘Kiwi’ Smith.

The story follows a K-pop group that find themselves stranded in Waco, Texas, just days before their scheduled American debut inside Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Left with no phones, no money and no transportation, the group must overcome their differences and a host of crazy obstacles to make it to New York City. Along the way, they learn to love Texas, and Texas learns to love them back.

It does sound like an entertaining premise that could have a lot of laughs, if done right. And hopefully it ends with the group not making it to New York City, but instead playing some concert on a ranch in Texas or something. SOME HEARTWARMING SH*T, OKAY?

Filming is expected to begin this fall, so it could be released sometime in 2023. We’re sure more casting news will be released in the future, so we’ll keep you posted.

Check Out The Comedy Trailer For ‘The Hustle’ Starring Anne Hathaway And Rebel Wilson

Are you ready for a female-powered Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake? Of course you are! Because it’s 2019, and you should be ready for all the remakes.

Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson star in the remake titled, The Hustle. In the comedy flick, Hathaway stars as a high-class scammer who takes Wilson’s character (a small time crook) under her wing and teaches her how to properly scam those dirty rotten men who wronged them in the past.

The script for this movie was written by Jac Schaeffer, who is now working on the script for Scarlett Johansson’s standalone Black Widow movie. She’s moving on up.

The Hustle will hit theaters across the country on May 10, 2019.

Rebel Wilson Gets Called Out For Blocking Black Twitter Users Following Plus-Size Rom-Com Comment

You might have heard about the drama following Rebel Wilson around on Twitter. She went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show over a week ago to talk about her upcoming romantic comedy film, Isn’t It Romantic.

During the interview, she claimed that she was the “first-ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy,” which obviously isn’t true. I mean, are we forgetting Queen Latifah in Last Holiday? That doesn’t count, Rebel?

The actress started getting comments on Twitter, trying to gentle make her realize what she said was incorrect. And instead of recognizing her mistake, she tried to defend it…



After that, it was on. Wilson started to get dozens of comments from angry folks on Twitter, and she decided to block them all. Seriously. She just started blocking people who disagreed with her.

Even Mo’Nique had to step in and say something…



Finally, after days of blocking people and basically being laughed at for her reaction to the madness, Wilson decided to apologize for her comments and her behavior that followed.




We Finally Have Some Casting News Surrounding ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ Remake

It has been over a year since we’ve heard any fresh news about Warner Bros’ rumored Little Shop of Horrors remake. The last bit of news released revealed Greg Berlanti (showrunner on Riverdale) was directing the project and Matthew Robinson wrote the script.

At the time, we didn’t know if it would be a remake of the 1960 sci-fi campy film, or the 1986 musical version directed by Frank Oz. But thanks to this bit of casting news just released, we know it’s going to be another musical.

According to multiple reports, the studio is in talks with Rebel Wilson and Josh Gad. Both stars can (and have) performed musical numbers in films, which is why it’s obvious this remake will be a musical.

This news might disappoint fans of the original film directed by Roger Corman, but you had to know it was going in this direction. The studio is going to go where the money is, and musicals are hot right now.

We should note that neither Gad nor Wilson have signed a contract. A lot can change, so don’t get excited (or disappointed) just yet. We’ll keep you posted as more information is released.

Rebel Wilson Starring In An Adele Biopic? Find Out How Adele Feels About This Rumor…


You may have heard this strange rumor floating around the internet this week. Sources told U.K.’s Daily Star that Rebel Wilson was in talks to play Adele on the big screen. It sounded a bit ridiculous, but the sources did seem pretty convincing.

“This is going to be a huge challenge for her because Adele is a legend at the peak of her popularity,” the source told the tabloid, adding that the actress “is desperately hoping to get Adele’s blessing.”

Well, it’s a good thing these rumors are completely false, because it doesn’t look like Adele would approve this casting decision. During a concert on Tuesday, the 27-year-old singer told the crowd…

“I’ve heard there are rumors about Rebel Wilson will be playing me in a movie. Let’s see if that turns out to be true. She’d need my f–king permission. Just because I’m plus-sized doesn’t mean she’s playing me.”

Damn. She was quick to smash those rumors. Rebel also addressed the rumors on her Twitter account earlier this week…


There you have it, folks. Wilson will probably never star as Adele on the big screen, but she can continue to pretend in front of the mirror like the rest of us.

Pitch Perfect 3 Will Happen, And Elizabeth Banks Has Agreed To Return!

Okay, so the news of Pitch Perfect 3 might not be surprising. After the second film took home $285 million worldwide (against a $29 million budget) it was pretty much a guarantee that a third movie would be following close behind.

But no one knew for sure if director Elizabeth Banks would return. She is the juice that keeps this laugh factory running, so it would have been devastating to lose her. But thankfully, we won’t have to worry about Pitch Perfect life without Banks. Variety is reporting that the 41-year-old actress/director has agreed to direct the third film in the series.

In addition to that good news, we also know screenwriter Kay Cannon will return to write the third installment. She is the writer behind the screenplay for both the original film and its sequel. Of course, Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow and Rebel Wilson have all agreed to take on this next film, so it looks like the dream team will have one more chance to create another money-making hit.

The film is scheduled to be released August 4, 2017. But if you can’t wait that long to see Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson again on the big screen, don’t you worry! Kendrick has several movies she’s working on at the moment, including a huge comedy film with Zac Efron and Aubrey Plaza titled Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. It’ll be released summer of 2016.

You can watch Wilson in the romantic comedy How to be Single on February 12, 2016.

Movie Review: Pitch Perfect 2 – Almost As Fun As The First

pitch_perfect_anna_kendrick_a_l - 29MAY2015

I’ve never been a big one for musicals. I’m one of the few people that used to fast forward through all of the singing parts in Glee. One thing I like about Pitch Perfect is that despite the fact that it’s about music, it isn’t too heavy on the music. The characters aren’t randomly bursting into song every three minutes, which made this premise tolerable for me. But it’s really the humor that sells it. While I will say the story is there, it’s a bit been there done that.

In this installment, we are again introduced to a perky acapella singing group, after they suffer an embarrassing mishap onstage. They then fight to get into an international acapella competition to redeem themselves and their group. To be honest, this premise was almost exactly the same as the first. If you really need to know it, just go watch Pitch Perfect. The only thing that changed is the venue.

Luckily, the snarky humor was there. It still has the breezy humor of the first, and is a movie that makes you fall in love with it, as it makes fun of itself. The actors brought the same energy they had and when it comes to laughs and dialog, it didn’t fall flat.

One area where it did fail was the failure to use Kendric. While the first movie really centered on her, she’s more of an afterthought in this one. That’s a shame, because I like my heroines with a bit of edge. She’s still edgy in this one, but we just don’t see as much of her.

Pitch Perfect 2 two - 29MAY2015

Pitch perfect 2 Moive stills - 29MAY2015

This time around, it’s Rebel Wilson who takes center stage. That’s a bit of a problem, as Wilson is and always has been a one note character. She had charm and great comic shtick, but a little of her goes a long way and focusing the film around her felt kind of exhausting. I feel like if they’d toned her down a bit, it would have been more tolerable.

The music is a bit overproduced for something that’s supposed to be acapella. It’s almost too perfect and it causes a bit of a disconnect between the story and the sound. The scenes with the other groups in the international competition were amusing, but they went a bit too far with the stereotypes and turned every other country into a weird cliché.

There are a bit too many storylines going on as well. They really didn’t need to add as much as they did. There were lots of side plots about Beca’s secret internship that really didn’t need to be there. I also wasn’t 100% sure why she was hiding it. I mean, she’s a senior in college. Of course she’s going to secure her future, right? They could have removed that part entirely and the movie wouldn’t have suffered for it. It also would have felt a bit cleaner.

I will say it was worth the watch. It just wasn’t quite as good at the first go-around.

Movie Review: Night at the Museum: Secrets of the Tomb – A Franchise that’s lost its magic.


I think we all know that Night at the Museum movies are hardly high art. In fact, they’re about one step up from those straight to video movies the Olson twins made in the 90s. But the magic they do have is that they’re entertaining. So does Night at the Museum: Secrets of the Tomb hold up to the original?

This time around, Larry (Ben Stiller) learns that the magic Tablet of Akhmenrah, the Egyptian artifact that brings the Museum of Natural History’s various exhibits to life, is starting to lose its powers. That means that Larry will soon have to say goodbye to friends like Teddy Roosevelt (the late Robin Williams), Egyptian Pharaoh Akhmenrah (Rami Malek), miniature cowboy Jedediah (Owen Wilson) and his Roman general friend Octavius (Steve Coogan). So off Larry goes to a British museum, so he can find a replacement magic tablet.

So yeah, the entire plot was conceived with the purpose of sending the museum guard to yet another museum, so he could continue meeting various historical figures. The previous movies did well with this formula, so I guess there seems to be no reason to stop now.




Except, this results in a strange lack of energy, as if everyone is just sick of making these movies. Of course, I guess that’s what you get when you base an entire franchise of movies on a 32 page children’s book. You know what this movie is? It’s that movie you play over and over for your kids so you can get a break from them. It’s more background noise than anything else. It’s a PG non-interactive babysitter.

And an excuse to show off an array of CGI effects. Those are still as decent as the original. But that’s about all it has going for it. The first movie was supported by a cast of heavyweight comics. In this third installment, all the priors are tired and Robin Williams carries it all with his frantic energy.

Much like the tablet itself, this franchise has lost its magic. A phone in script and exhausted characters go on a short trip. In order to pad the script, two of the characters get stuck in a heating shaft and everyone has to go look for them for 45 minutes.

One bright shining spot in this is Rebel Wilson, who plays the British equivalent of Stiller’s character. As a guard at her own museum, she steals every single scene she’s in, making Stiller fall even more flat.

He clearly phoned in his effort and I think I know why. Rumor is, that when he was trying to get The Secret Life of Walter Mitty made, he actually had to sign on to do a third installment of this series. I guess when you shove someone back into a role, and hand him a tired script, you can’t really blame him for not putting forth much of an effort.

Hopefully, the studio will get the message and stop making these movies. But I highly doubt it. The movie has already raked in $17 million and is holding steady at number 2 at the box office. Despite the fact that it’s not worth the watch, it apparently was worth the making.
