Guy Ritchie to direct live-action Aladdin movie for Disney

Sigh. Is anyone really surprised by this news? With live-action remakes of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, LITTLE MERMAID, LION KING, and the recently announcement of MULAN  (among others) on the way, a resigned sigh is really the only response at this point. To be fair, the fact that Disney is in talks with  Guy Ritchie  to direct is kind of cool, as...

Enchanted sequel Disenchanted on its way from Disney

You know, I really liked ENCHANTED. I thought Amy Adams was delightfully charming as a naive waif, without coming off cloying or annoying - which is a hard feat indeed.

Even the love story that...

Live-Action Mulan on the way from Disney

I love Takashi Miike films. They are just so out there and f*cked up, especially his most popular films (at least in the US) AUDITION and ICHI THE KILLER. But what's great about the prolific director is that he does a variety of types of films, like the kid-friendly NINJA KIDS!!! or the colorful and faithful ACE ATTORNEY film based on the videogame. I mean, the man has...

The Mouse had plans on moving forward with a sequel, attaching Anne Fletcher (THE PROPOSAL) to direct, but let's face it... it's 2015 and there hasn't been much movement on this follow-up actually happening....
