Seth Gordon to Direct Dwayne Johnson in Paramount’s ‘Baywatch’ Movie

Seth Gordon is in negotiations to direct Dwayne Johnson in Paramount’s bigscreen adaptation of the TV series “Baywatch.”

Johnson is attached to star and will produce along with his partner Dany Garcia through their Seven Bucks Productions banner along with Montecito Pictures producing along with Beau Flynn.

Michael Berk, Douglas Schwartz, Greg Bonnan will exec produce.

While plot details are currently vague, sources close to the project have said the studio wants to go the comedic route for the project.

Paramount has been trying to get the right ingredients in place in order to move forward with the film, and Gordon is the sort of director the studio has been looking to over the years. Gordon’s hit vulgar comedies like “Horrible Bosses” and “Identity Theft” have made him a popular director at the studios amid moviegoers’ craving for R-rated comedies. Paramount would hope for similar results.

Damian Shannon & Mark Swift wrote the latest draft of the script.

Gordon had been attached to Sony’s “Uncharted” but recently left the project. He is repped by WME, Brillstein Entertainment and Sloane Offer.

The Rock’s ‘Rampage’ Is Hollywood’s Answer To ‘Jurassic World’ And ‘San Andreas’

As some of you might have heard via Deadline in the midsts of all the Spider-Man news, Dwayne Johnson is re teaming with producer Beau Flynn and New Line Cinema for another action spectacular. This one is based on the popular 1980?s video game Rampage. For those of you who don’t remember, Rampage was an arcade game where you assumed the role of a giant monster and trashed one city after another. The game spawned four sequels/reboots on various home consoles between 1997 and 2006 and remains a cult favorite to this day. The appeal to Hollywood is pretty obvious. The green lighting of this film, which had been in theoretical discussions since 2011, is noteworthy in that it feels like Hollywood’s answer to two of the summer’s biggest hits thus far: Jurassic World and San Andreas. It’s basically, from a pitch standpoint, “Jurassic World meets San Andreas.” Continue reading >

‘San Andreas’ Set to Rock Box Office with $47 Million Debut, ‘Aloha’ Left in the Dust

Warner Bros.’ “San Andreas” is no box office disaster, with the 3D action pic drawing $18.2 million on Friday, setting it on track for a projected weekend haul of $47 million at 3,777 locations and smashing past early estimates that put it around the $40 million mark.

‘San Andreas’ to Shake Up Box Office With $40 Million Debut

dwaynevariety“San Andreas” hits theaters this weekend, hoping to provide a jolt to the summer box office after Memorial Day ticket sales barely registered on the Richter Scale.

The 21st century answer to Irwin Allen’s disaster films of yore is on pace to debut to $40 million domestically when it bows in 3,777 locations. The Warner Bros. release deploys the latest CGI razzle dazzle in the service of depicting a massive earthquake that threatens to turn much of California into ocean bottom. The best special effect at its disposal may be Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson, a reliable draw at the box office in films such as the “Fast and Furious” and “G.I. Joe” movies. Continue reading >
