Out of musical comedy trio The Lonely Island, Andy Samberg has enjoyed perhaps the most mainstream success in both film and TV, but by no means have his co-members been slumming it on their own fronts. While Akiva Schaffer recently scored a better directorial opportunity than result with his summer effort “The Watch,” Jorma Taccone has been busy developing a number of different projects, in addition to popping up in Lena Dunham's “Girls,” and now finds himself fronting perhaps his highest-profile project yet.

Screenwriters Tom Lennon and Robert Ben Garant are no strangers to the studio-pitched franchise, as their alternately tumultuous forays with “Herbie: Fully Loaded” and “Night at the Museum” have exhibited. It's a testament then to their combined versatility that they are able to switch gears abruptly, having recently finished production on their co-directed horror comedy “Hell Baby,” and as that film is being tweaked in post, one-half of the duo has decided to carry on directing with a familiar vibe to their past projects.

While his brother Albert is having a hard time getting a movie mounted, with "Motor City" recently being scuttled, Allen Hughes is on a bit of a tear. He's in post-production of "Broken City," the thriller starring Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones, and now he's lining up a remake that will be sure to raise some eyebrows, particularly among fans of Korean cinema.

So, hot mess or career comeback? Well, it's a Lifetime movie so, if it's watchable that will be more than enough, but given that Lindsay Lohan seems to be operating a bi-weekly arrest rate, she's hoping that this one turns out be a surprise success because there's only so many "Scary Movie" appearances you can do.

This weekend, the Clint Eastwood-starring baseball movie "Trouble with the Curve" opens and we'll just tell you right now: it's not very good. Somehow, it misses the the magic of the game that makes it the nation's greatest pasttime, and tosses in not one, but two third-act twists that are there as lazy devices to wring audience sympathy. But before 'Trouble' starts, it looks like WB is going to show off an early look at next year's baseball movie, and it might be a better investment of your movie ticket dollars.

You love Parker Posey, we love Parker Posey -- who doesn't love Parker Posey? If there is somebody out there who isn't down with the actress, then we just don't want to know them, but for the rest of us, she's lining up a role in what is shaping up to be the most fascinating and unlikely of movies about one of the great cinema stars of all time.

Marketing movies is one part art, one part science and third part sheer luck, as studios forever try to make sure their films both find their intended audience and still have enough appeal for the magical four quadrants. But over at 20th Century Fox, they seem to care less about crafting a campaign, preferring to just show you as much of the movie as possible in advance. Just look at their rollout for "Prometheus" and "X-Men: First Class" in case you need any more proof. And so it goes with "Taken 2" as yet another clip has dropped.

If the runaway success of 1996's Michael Jordan/Looney Tunes collab “Space Jam” mirrored Jason Segel's solid revitalization of the Muppets in 2011, then the franchise's follow-up installment, “Looney Tunes: Back In Action,” found its spiritual partner firmly in “Muppets in Space.” While featuring enjoyable moments and performances from leads Brendan Fraser and Jenna Elfman, the film nonetheless disappointed on both critical and financial fronts. But now it appears the classic characters are getting another shot as a well-known comedy writer/performer has decided to take the reins.

Is The '28 Weeks Later' Sequel Dead? Writer Alex Garland Says There's No Plan For Another Film

"I'd love to direct another one of it, actually," Danny Boyle said of the possibility of directing a sequel to "28 Weeks Later" nearly two years ago. But within that same week, he also said, "if it's a new idea and it's pretty good, it'll get made whether I direct it or not." And a lot of things have happened since then. Boyle has been very busy, directing a very well-received stage production of "Frankenstein," overseeing the spectacle of this summer's London Olympics and in case you forgot, he shot (and will soon be editing) the art heist thriller "Trance." It's probably pretty obvious given the fact almost all chatter around another installment of those zombie movies have died down, but frequent Boyle collaborator Alex Garland is here to confirm the undead will be staying dead.
