‘Star Wars’ Spinoff to Follow Obi-Wan Kenobi?

So far, we have heard rumors that two of the three planned 'Star Wars' spinoffs were to follow Boba Fett and Han Solo. Then there was the mysterious third spinoff, which we haven't much concrete information on. Until now. A recent report suggests that despite earlier reports that the spinoffs wouldn't follow any Jedi or Sith characters, Lucasfilm is currently working with artists and a writer to develop an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie.

Dan Aykroyd Wants ‘Ghostbusters’ to Be Like Marvel’s Cinematic Universe

Ever since the Marvel Cinematic Universe became a huge success, there were immediate imitators trying to follow that same model. From the 'Justice League' films to 'Amazing Spider-Man' and, heck, even the upcoming 'Star Wars' movies. It all seemed a bit much, to be honest. But, this latest news might take the cake (or donut?) when it comes to biting style. Dan Aykroyd, the only one involved with the original 'Ghostbusters' who seems to want to have anything to do with the new 'Ghostbusters' says he wants to relaunch the franchise following the Marvel "shared universe" strategy.

Who Should Star in an All-Female ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot, According to Bill Murray

At this point, any new 'Ghostbusters' movie has been fancasted within an inch of its life. Any actor working today under the age of 40? They've been considered for the 'Ghostbusters' movie. Shoot, there's a chance you were considered to star in the 'Ghostbusters' movie. So, there's no point in going over yet another list of who should star in 'Ghostbusters 3' or whatever it is they're calling it these days. Unless, of course, the person who made that list is Bill Murray. In that case, *in rapt*.

Steve Carell to Star in Looney Tunes Spinoff Based on Acme Corporation

Here's some news we never expect to report today... Warner Bros. is planning a spinoff of their classic Looney Tunes franchise that would be based on Acme Corp. - the company which Wile E. Coyote and others use to buy their anvils, dynamite and earthquake pills - and would Steve Carell. And, before you ask, no, there won't actually be any Looney Tunes characters in the movie. Huh?

What Would ‘The Avengers’ Look Like as a 70s TV Cop Show?

It's inevitable: one day there will be an 'Avengers' reboot. It's hard to think of now, as 'Avengers 2' hasn't even hit theaters and Phase 3 of Marvel's Cinematic Universe hasn't even begun yet. But, once Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner all play through their contracts, Marvel is going to have to start over. Now, we don't think Marvel would ever reboot 'The Avengers' as a 70s detective TV series, but if they did? It'd look a lot like this...

‘Die Hard 6′ to Reunite Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson?

Let's be honest: the last two 'Die Hard' movies were almost unwatchable. There's little Fox could do to get us excited for a 'Die Hard 6' at this point, but what little there is to do, they're at least trying to do. Early reports suggest that Fox is working on a 'Die Hard 6' story that would reunite John McClane (Bruce Willis) and Zeus Carver (Samuel L. Jackson), the co-stars of the last good 'Die Hard' movie.

Did you think that bit at the Oscars where host Ellen DeGeneres wandered into the audience to tweet a selfie with A-listers like Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper was a refreshing moment of spontaneity in an otherwise scripted affair?
