Disney's Prince Charming Movie Targets Perks of Being a Wallflower Director

Disney's Prince Charming Movie Targets Perks of Being a Wallflower Director
Disney is finally moving forward with its long-gestating Prince Charming project, bringing aboard filmmaker Stephen Chbosky to write the script, with an eye towards directing as well. We first reported on this Prince Charming live-action movie back in July 2015, with the studio bringing in writer Matthew Fogel (Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son) to write the script, but we haven't heard any updates on the project since then. Disney still hasn't issued a release date and there is no production schedule at this time, but at least the studio is actually moving forward with this once gestating project.

There is no indication as to whether Stephen Chbosky is simply rewriting or performing a polish on the original script by Matthew Fogel, or if he is conducting an exhaustive page-one rewrite and starting over from scratch. The story for this latest Disney live-action remake will be a revisionist tale, told from

‘Stranger Things 2’: Casting the Kids of Hawkins As Grown-Ups

Last week, “The Crown” revealed that its third season of the royal drama would be jumping forward a few decades in time, and as a result recasting its leads, with the role of Queen Elizabeth II now passing from Claire Foy to Olivia Colman. This inspired the thought — what if “Stranger Things” (a period drama in its own way) pulled a similar move at some point during its run, jumping forward to something close to the modern day? And if it did, who should be enlisted to play the kids of Hawkins, all grown up?

Because perhaps they’ve remained friends over the years. Perhaps they’ve drifted apart. But it’s not hard to imagine strange things continuing to happen to these characters, no matter the time period. So here are our ideal picks for the cast of “Stranger Things 2017,” the kids as well as a few of the adults.

Random Roles: Skeet Ulrich talks about Riverdale, Scream, and the only time he ever got fired

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them to talk about.

The actor: Skeet Ulrich may have spent years suffering the slings and arrows of critics who’ve described him as Johnny Depp Lite (not to mention far worse things), but it’s easy to endure these sorts of remarks when you’re in a bona fide box office sensation like Scream and co-starring in a film that‘s nominated for Best Picture (As Good As It Gets), even if your role does end up getting cut down dramatically. In recent years, Ulrich has spent the majority of his time on television, starring in such short-lived cult favorites as Miracles and Jericho, but he’s just been upped to series-regular status on the latest CW sensation, Riverdale.

The Biggest Reason You Recognize Fp on Riverdale

Image Source: The CW Riverdale is loaded with the best young talent Hollywood has to offer, but the parental figures are nothing to sneeze at, either. Of course they're all wildly attractive, but they're also all veteran actors. Luke Perry, aka Fred Andrews, is a TV legend thanks to Beverly Hills, 90210. Mädchen Amick, aka Alice Cooper, got her start on Twin Peaks. But what about Fp Jones? You know that face from somewhere. Of course you do - he's played by the forever sexy Skeet Ulrich. Ulrich broke onto the scene in the late '90s with roles in teen hits like The Craft and Boys. It was his portrayal of Billy Loomis in the original Scream, however, that solidified his place in pop culture history.

When Should You Punt on a Television Show?

We look to the best and brightest of television criticism and see what they have to say.

A few weeks ago, I realized that I hadn’t been living my best possible Netflix life. With a one-hour train ride to work each day — roughly two hours door-to-door — my daily commute provided me the perfect opportunity to try out a few television shows on my backlist. My freelance writing tends to focus on film criticism and film history; that means I tend to feel bad when I waste valuable movie-watching time on episodes of television shows. Put another way: two episodes of any hour-long show is time better spent moving one more classic or foreign film from my ‘to-watch’ list to my ‘watched’ list.

But while I have a hard-and-fast rule about watching movies on my phone, I have no such restrictions on consuming modern television in a handheld format. That’s where Netflix comes in handy. I
