After what fans called a disappointing appearance in the movie "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," the psychologically unstable mercenary and "anti-hero" Deadpool will have his own solo movie, simply entitled "Deadpool." Twentieth Century Fox finally greenlighted the movie in 2014, five years after the 2009 "Wolverine" movie. It will be released in theaters on February 12, 2016.
Ryan Reynolds, who played Deadpool in the Origins movie, was the first cast member confirmed sometime in December 2014. He is said to be working closely with the movie's director, Tim Miller, who will make his directorial debut with this film.
Reynolds is said to be big fan of the character. In the report, he came out assuring even the "most rabid of fans" that the upcoming movie will be loyal to the "canon of the character." more >>
Just one day after The Christian Post reported that a film entitled "I Am A Christian" about persecuted Sudanese Christian Mariam Ibraheem was planned for production, the team behind the project starring Stacey Dash has cancelled a $500,000 campaign that was launched to crowdfund it.
The campaign was scrapped after Ibraheem and her husband, Daniel Wani, came forward to publicly denounce the film, because they had not given Christian Lives Matter, LLC, the newly-formed company responsible for "I Am A Christian," rights to tell their story. The couple in fact only learned Tuesday through news reports that the project was being pursued without their permission.
"It's terrible. … It's not right," Wani told CP over the phone Wednesday. He expressed concern about filmmakers attempting to tell his family's dramatic story of persecution based solely on media reports and without his and Ibraheem's first-person accounts. more >>
Classic Disney animated movies are getting live action remakes, and though many initially had their doubts, Disney's live action "Cinderella," which opened this week to $68 million in the U.S. alone, made fans look forward to more fairy tale retellings in the future.
Recently, the company announced that a live action remake of "Beauty and the Beast" is in the works. Disney first announced that Emma Watson will be starring as Belle, and the "Harry Potter" star took to Facebook to announce the casting news, writing, "[Beauty and the Beast] was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I'll get to dance to 'Be Our Guest' and sing 'Something There.'"
"My six year old self is on the ceiling—heart bursting. Time to start some singing lessons. I can't wait for you to see it," she continued. more >>

Oscar-nominated actor Tom Berenger recently voiced his opinion of some of today's faith films, including his latest project, "Lonesome Dove Church," just days before its March 24th release.
Unlike other faith-based films available today, "Lonesome Dove Church" is based on real events that led to the foundation of the church in the U.S. during the 1800's. Berenger, who is well-known for his roles in films such as "Inception" and the TV miniseries "Hatfields & McCoys," portrays an itinerant preacher, John Shepherd, who has dreams of building his own church in the stirring western.
"Lonesome Dove Church" joins the ranks of other faith-based releases today including "God's Not Dead," but offers a historically accurate depiction of Christians as well as the church in the U.S. Just ahead of the American Civil War, Shepherd is compelled to defend his only son Isaac against a cold-blooded killer while carefully navigating the western frontier. Furthermore, Berenger explained that his character puts his faith and his future on the line by taking an abolitionist stance and springing to defend Isaac against accusations of robbery and murder. more >>
