A Jetsons animated movie is reportedly in the works

The Jetsons might just get a second chance on the silver screen. Warner Bros. has hired writer Matt Lieberman to pen a script for a feature film based on the iconic Hanna-Barbera show from the early ‘60s, reports Deadline and Variety. According to those reports, the script is being put together from scratch for an animated feature. (There have been murmurs of a live-action “Jetsons” film over the past couple of years, but this is a different project.) Lieberman is also working on a “Scooby-Doo” animated film, which is further along the production cycle.

Back in 1990, The Jetsons had a less-than-stellar theatrical debut with Jetsons: The Movie. Despite being directed by Joseph Barbera, one of the show’s original creators, the film was…

There’s going to be a Batkid movie starring Julia Roberts

The story of Miles Scott, a five-year-old battling leukemia who took over part of San Francisco as “Batkid” in 2013, is set to become a feature film thanks to a documentary about him and his family that’s premiering tomorrow. Variety reports that Julia Roberts is set to produce and star in an adaptation of Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard around the World, the film about Scott, who became Batkid in November 2013 thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. That film originated from an Indiegogo campaign from filmmaker Dana Nachman, and successfully raised more than $ 100,000. It’s premiering at the Slamdance Film Festival in Utah tomorrow.

Classic horror movie The Blob is getting remade with a lot of CGI

Campy horror classic The Blob is getting a remake, Deadline reports. The movie, about a small town terrorized by a hungry, vicious villain from another planet, is known for its shoddy graphics, strange premise, and the launch of Steve McQueen’s acting career.

Simon West, (Con-Air, The Expendables 2) will direct the movie for Goldcrest Films; Richard Saperstein and Brian Witten (Silent Night) will produce. In what may be a boon to fans of the original, Jack Harris, the 96-year-old producer of the 1958 movie, is credited as an executive producer.

This movie sharing service is the first good use of Ultraviolet we’ve seen

Former Wall Street analyst Steve Wang has just launched Wavelength, a free movie-sharing service, or, as Wang is calling it, “the first social movie service.”

Wavelength is powered by Ultraviolet, a cloud locker created by movie studios in 2010 that allows users to buy one copy of a movie and stream it to multiple devices. Users can post a listing of all the movies they have in their Ultraviolet libraries to Wavelength, allowing their friends to browse and watch. Instead of hosting the movies, Wavelength sends users to an online portal run by the film’s original retailer, like Walmart’s Vudu or FlixsterUp to three people can watch the same movie posted by a shared friend.

Stream your friends’ movies

By working with Ultraviolet, Wang…

The new Pee-Wee Herman movie is reportedly coming straight to Netflix

Actor Paul Reubens has made no secret about the fact that a new Pee-Wee Herman movie is in the works, and today we’re getting a sense of where you’ll be able to see it: Netflix. The Wrap reports that the video streaming company is close to sewing up a deal to distribute the upcoming film, which will be produced by Judd Apatow, the comedic mastermind behind The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Freaks and Geeks, and a slew of other recent films.

Netflix has become an increasingly frequent go-to for filmmakers and projects that can’t find support or interest at traditional studios or networks (the new Pee-Wee film was initially set up at Universal). After considerable success with original television programing, the company announced…

The internet decides that The Interview is a perfect movie

Sometimes, a movie’s notoriety can transcend its actual content and make it a culturally significant milestone all by its lonesome. No movie this year (or maybe even this decade) has been as notorious as Seth Rogen’s The Interview, which was pulled from US movie theaters in response to threats of terrorist attacks if it were ever released. An outspoken backlash against the decision has risen up in the United States and elsewhere, which today sees itself expressed through the fan scores of movie-rating websites IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes: 22,607 IMDb users collectively rate The Interview a perfect 10, after it’d been sitting at 9.9 for the past few days, while 96 percent of 28,662 people on RT have rated it with three stars (out of five) or…
