Ghost
Because a movie and/or TV show in a catalog at a studio is now something that be licensed, rebranded and repackaged and resold, a romantic classic and cult series are getting fresh life on the small screen.

Winter's Tale
Long considered unfilmable, Mark Helprin's novel "Winter's Tale" has been kicking around Hollywood waiting for someone to take it on. And that someone is Akiva Goldsman, the blockbuster producer ("Mr. And Mrs. Smith," "I Am Legend") has written the adaptation and is making his feature debut with the flick. And full credit to him, with the first trailer arriving this evening, it looks like he's poured all he's got into it.

Did you know that Zac Efron has a production company? He does and it's called Ninjas Runnin' Wild Productions. Seriously. And that's runnin' not running, dawg. And over the past few years he's accumulated a small slate of projects that are moving through development incuding a remake of Daniel Espinosa's breakout film "Snabba Cash." And now, he's dipping his toes into the supernatural thriller sphere.

The cinematic Marvel-DC "arms race" is a bit of an illusion, since Marvel has leased their properties to many other studios, and DC's characters all exist underneath the Warner Bros. banner. Still, WB is smart enough to know that superheroes sell right now, and with the departure of "Harry Potter," the end of the Chris Nolan "Batman" films, and a final "Hangover" hitting next summer, they're clearly hard-up for franchises right now. Which is why DC and the WB are partnering to bring "The Flash" "Wonder Woman" "Lobo" to the big screen, with the help of the visionary auteur behind "Cats And Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore."

In a story on Kristen Bell joining the cast of Jennifer Getzinger's cinematic adaptation of Neil LaBute's play "Some Girls," The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively revealed that the actress-formerly-known-as-Veronica Mars will "provide the speaking and singing voice" as the lead in Disney's upcoming feature "Frozen," which means she will play the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale character the Snow Queen (first published way back in 1845). Additionally, the trade states that Warner Bros. and Weed Road (Akiva Goldsman's WB-based production shingle) have picked up the forthcoming graphic novel "Bolivar" for Irish animator Kealan O'Rourke to write and direct.

While he may draw the critical scorn of fanboys everywhere with even the mention of his name, and rightfully so after penning the screenplays for the weak “Batman Forever” and disastrous “Batman & Robin,” screenwriter Akiva Goldsman still holds a lot of clout in Hollywood. That’s what one earns when they write behemoth blockbusters that span multiple genres, such as “I Am Legend” or “A Beautiful Mind,” as well as help usher in franchises with the likes of “The Da Vinci Code.” It was reported all the way back in February of 2011 that Goldsman would be lensing his directorial debut “Winter’s Tale," but at the beginning of this month it looked as if Goldsman called in some favors to his famous friends after the production hit some budgetary speed bumps, landing “I Am Legend” star Will Smith and “A Beautiful Mind” actor Russell Crowe in supporting roles. About $20 million was shaved off the budget and the project gained some much needed steam, so it pays to have friends in high places.

Warner Bros. has made a shocking, stunning announcement today that they would like to continue making lots of money by making a sequel to a hit movie. No. Fucking. Way.

Say what you will about Akiva Goldsman, but the guy responsible for stuff like "Batman Forever," "Batman & Robin," "Jonah Hex" and the "Paranormal Activity" sequels does manage to deliver something a cut above his usual dreck whenever he pairs up with Ron Howard. While we'll politely ignore the Dan Brown adaptations, the duo collaborated in fine form with "A Beautiful Mind" and "Cinderella Man," and were prepared to work together again on the expansive "The Dark Tower" before Universal walked away. And while Brain Grazer recently revealed that HBO will be taking on the television portion of the Stephen King adaptation, it looks like the other two-thirds of the trio have been busy talking to the network about something else.

First up is "Winter's Tale," set to mark the big-screen directorial debut of Akiva Goldsman, the Oscar-winning writer of "A Beautiful Mind," and smack-deserving writer of "Batman & Robin" and "The Da Vinci Code." Announced back in February, the film sees Goldsman tackle Mark Helprin's much-praised 1983 novel of the same name, which follows an orphan on the run from a criminal gang, who breaks into a New York mansion, only to fall in love with a dying woman, with reincarnation, apocalypse, rainbow bridges and a flying white horse all cropping up as well. It's something of a passion project for the screenwriter, who's been attached since 2009, and he spent the weekend performing some chemistry reads with some young talent for the lead roles.
