It was all the way back in 2006 that Jack Black and director Jared Hess hooked up for the first time to make the Mexican wrestling-inspired comedy Nacho Libre, and nine years later, they're set to reunite. Both are now attached to make a new project called Micronations, which has quite the interesting logline.
Jack Black has made a name for himself playing hilarious roles on the big screen, along with a few dramatic projects here and there. However, one type of role he hasn’t sunk his teeth into yet is a superhero, but he almost got the chance.
Jack Black is one of those individuals that you simply assume was born a movie star. Now early footage of Jack Black starring in a student film in the 1980s has emerged and it showcases the raw energy that has epitomized the comedian throughout his career.
In recent years, Jack Black hasn't been at the front and center of any live-action feature projects, instead choosing to do a bit more voice-over work and TV, but now he's back as the leading man in The D Train, and you can watch the movie's debut trailer inside.
If you were looking forward to Jack Black and Will Ferrell making the game of Tag into the motion picture you have to see to believe, you're in luck! The project looks very much alive, as they've made a really big move towards reality.
One can't imagine how nervous Neil Patrick Harris must have been backstage in the moments before the official start of this year's Academy Award ceremony, but all those jitters obviously left the stage once the show began. How do we know? Because his opening number, titled "Moving Pictures," is absolutely fantastic. Check it out inside!
The Oscars are almost here, but that doesn't mean it's too late to announce new acts performing on the night! Read on to see why Jack Black's return is a good thing for the Oscars.
Matthew McConaughey, of the McConaughnessance McConaugheys, has a motto of "Just keep living." But that doesn't mean this breezy, bongo-playing Texan hasn't had his moments of sheer outrage. One of those came leveled at long-time friend and colleague Richard Linklater, when McConaughey learned he'd lost out on a role he desperately wanted to Jack Black.
Justin Long has admitted that he “freaked out“ the night before he played George Harrison in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. Long was overwhelmed by the opportunity to play the favorite member of his favorite band, which he did alongside Paul Rudd’s John Lennon, Jack Black’s Paul McCartney and Jason Schwartzman’s Ringo Starr.
When Orson Welles made Citizen Kane back in the early 1940s, it was considered one of the most controversial Hollywood movies ever made - though not because of violence, foul language, sex or nudity. Rather it was because the film's fictional central subject, Charles Foster Kane, was loosely though obviously not-so-lovingly based on the life of William Randolph Hearst, a newspaper magnate who also happened to be one of the most powerful and influential people in America.
Now the children's author who brought us titles like Stay Out of The Basement, Night of the Living Dummy and The Haunted Mask is getting a movie makeover of his own, courtesy of Jack Black, who plays R.L. Stine in the upcoming Goosebumps movie.
In a story that's stranger that fiction, a filmmaker, who made a movie about a real-life killer, is now housing that very killer so he can be set free. It sounds completely bonkers, but when you hear the details, you might be surprised how sweet the whole thing (sort of) is.
For a while, it seemed as though Jack Black was becoming the premier comic leading man of his generation, and with a couple of more hits that coronation would have been complete. Instead, Black stumbled with Gulliver’s Travels and subsequently disappeared from leading man roles.
The long in-development live-action movie based on R.L. Stine's popular horror series Goosebumps is finally taking some major steps towards production, and today it's not only been revealed who is likely to star in it, but also what the basic story is about.
Corddry has had an incredibly busy year so far, both on the big and small screens. His year began with Jonathan Levine's excellent zom-rom-com Warm Bodies in February and he's since been seen (or in the case of animated films, heard) in The Way, Way Back, Pain & Gain, Rapture-Palooza, and Escape From Planet Earth.
Following up on a brief but memorable scene on screen together in Anchorman, Jack Black and Will Ferrell will be teamed up for a more prominent grouping in New Line Cinema's Tag Brothers. The two funny men will play two of the four planned starring roles for the picture, which is based on a real-life ongoing game of tag between a group of former classmates who are now adults but have yet to outgrow their beloved game.
The door between Hollywood and Broadway has become a revolving portal over the years, with so many movies triggering stage shows, and vice versa. School of Rock makes total sense as a Broadway show, and there should be a part for Black (who can sing), if he’s game.
Black told The L.A. Times recently that the duo is circling a bowling movie that might be based on the actual story of professional bowler and PBA champion Pete Weber. When asked that, Black only confirms that Linklater’s story will follow a man who ditches everything in his life to suddenly try his hand at pro bowling.
Bernie Tiede was a mysterious man. Beloved by everyone that knew him, he was convicted of murdering an 81 year old widow back in 1996. While he acted effeminate, nobody knew if he was actually gay and many people questioned the nature of his long-time relationship with the woman that he ended up killing and storing in a freezer for nine months.
Adding either of those two to any project would get me excited, but adding both to a Kaufman production has me gasping for air. Winslet, of course, earned her nominations for playing Jim Carrey’s elusive soulmate in Kaufman’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Keener, meanwhile, played meta games with John Cusack and a frumpy Cameron Diaz for the brilliant Being John Malkovich.
