Warner Bros. has set an early summer release date of May 31, 2019, for Mark Wahlberg’s sci-fi action movie “The Six Billion Dollar Man.”

Warner Bros. bought the rights to the project late last year from the Weinstein Company, which had been developing the movie with “Wild Tales” director Damian Szifron.

“The Six Billion Dollar Man” is based on the science-fiction television series “The Six Million Dollar Man,” about a former astronaut, Colonel Steve Austin, portrayed by Lee Majors. Austin’s character had superhuman strength due to bionic implants and was employed as a secret agent. The series ran for five seasons on ABC between 1973 and 1978 and was based on the Martin Caidin novel “Cyborg.”

In November, 2016, Wahlberg and Bob Weinstein made a presentation of the project to buyers at the American Film Market. Wahlberg had asserted that he was not interested in most superhero projects, adding, “I don’t care what it is, how much I’m getting paid, I’m not leaving my trailer in a cape.”

Warner Bros. made the announcement Friday. “The Six Billion Dollar Man” is the second title to land on the date after an untitled Blumhouse project.

Warner Bros. also said its romance drama “The Sun Is Also a Star” would be released two week earlier on May 17, 2019. Yara Shahidi, star of “Black-ish” and “Grown-ish,” is in negotiations to star in the movie adaptation of the bestselling YA novel for Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros., and MGM.

Additionally, the studio set the Melissa McCarthy-Tiffany Haddish mob drama “The Kitchen” for release by New Line on Sept. 20, 2019. McCarthy joined the project on Feb. 13 with “Straight Outta Compton” writer Andrea Berloff directing from her own script, in which a group of Irish mobsters sent to prison and their wives take over their jailed spouses’ organized crime operation in 1970s Hell’s Kitchen.

After over 20 years teaching audiences about the horrors of domestic violence, Fear is being remade but with the roles reversed. Time to secure that house.  There’s nothing to fear but Fear itself….well that’s not always true.

Deadline is reporting a Fear remake is coming. While still in the early stages, the film is moving forward with Straight Outta Compton co-writer Jonathan Herman penning the script. Also, the remake is said to be switching the roles up a bit, with the female character doing the stalking. Original producer Brian Grazer is returning to proud the newer version for Imagine Entertainment.

In the 1996 thriller, Resse Witherspoon and Mark Wahlberg starred as the domestic violence duo. In the James Foley film, boy meets girl and, well, tries to killer everyone in her life so the two can live happily ever after. You know, those classic relationship goals. Eventually, the situation comes to a head as David (Wahlberg) tries breaking into the Walker home. If you’ve seen the film, you know how terrifying the Boogie Nights actor is in the role.

But this one’s going to be a little different — the female carries the fatal flaw. Topical in the current #METOO movement, it’ll be interesting to see the switch. While not completely original, it should be intriguing to see how far the film takes it.

The Fear remake is still very much in its infancy. We’ll bring you more on the film as it comes in. [1428elm.com]

Scary good! While It continues to scare moviegoers, Donnie Wahlberg told Us Weekly he found some comic relief in the film thanks to several New Kids on the Block references. Watch the video above!

Wahlberg, 48, revealed that he caught the movie with his son and when NKOTB’s “Please Don’t Go Girl” song hit the screen, the two tried acting nonchalant about the whole thing.

“I looked over at him and he looked over at me and we don’t want to blow our cover either because it’s dad and son time,” Wahlberg told Us while sipping on his wife Jenny McCarthy’s newly launched ready-to-serve vodka cocktail, Blondies. “We are trying to be low-key. I don’t want to embarrass him, and fortunately no one heckled the New Kids stuff.”

Turns out Wahlberg’s son wasn’t embarrassed at all. In fact, he thought it was pretty cool.

Though the Arcada Theatre has been criticized for its outdated air conditioning system and moldy-smelling bathrooms, Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg recently renewed their wedding vows at the historic St. Charles venue.

“I had the whole theater set up where it was black inside except for candle lights, and we had a cellist playing with a guitarist, and had a video presentation of all our time together and a reverend, this amazing reverend from St. Charles,” Wahlberg says in a clip previewing Friday’s episode of “Rachael Ray.”  (Donnie and Jenny will be guests on the Rachael Ray Show, Friday, September 29th. Check your local listings for times! Details HERE.)

McCarthy, 44, and Wahlberg, 48, tied the knot at the Hotel Baker in St. Charles on Aug. 31, 2014. They split their time between St. Charles and New York City, where McCarthy tapes her SiriusXM show and Wahlberg films the CBS police series “Blue Bloods.”

Actor Mark Wahlberg wants to help young Catholics in Chicago find their faith.

He’s among several speakers to take part at the Archdiocese of Chicago’s (re)Encounter young adult faith night.

The event is for helping young people “discover how you can live your dream and have an active faith life,” according to the Archdiocese’s website.

Wahlberg is known for talking about his faith on social media. He says he attends mass, and prays before bed, daily.

Tickets cost $15. They are general admission.

Other speakers include Cardinal Blase J. Cupich, Sr. Bethany Madonna of the Sisters of Life, and Fr. Paul Mueller, Vice Director of the Vatican Observatory.

WGN’s Dina Bair is hosting the event.

On November 10th, it’s every daddy for himself. Check out the new trailer for #DaddysHome2!

Mark Wahlberg will star in Paramount’s “Instant Family,” an indvidual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

The movie follows a couple who decide to adopt children currently in foster care, but end up with three kids who can’t be controlled. Paramount plans to start shooting next year.

“Instant Family” will be directed by “Daddy’s Home” helmer Sean Anders. Anders and John Morris wrote the film and will produce along with Wahlberg and Steve Levinson.

The Wahlberg and Will Ferrell-starrer “Daddy’s Home” was a massive hit for Paramount during the 2015 holiday season, grossing $150 million domestically and $92 million overseas. A sequel to the film, “Daddy’s Home 2,” is set to hit theaters Nov. 10.

Paramount could also use a bankable hit after a rough couple years in which would-be family friendly blockbusters like “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” and “Monster Trucks” flopped.

Wahlberg is represented by WME, who packaged the comedy. Anders is represented by UTA.

I know that everyone has been accustomed to my articles about new movies, trailers and what’s coming soon on big screens from Hollywood. Today I decided to talk about a good movie I accidentally saw these days on TV. I cannot call it too old, but taking into account that now we are in 2017, the 2008 year of production is counting 9 years already…

Risk, love and… money. 21 is a great movie about living and loving life. They say it’s a fact-based story. Maybe. However, the plot is not that of a traditional American drama; it’s not a love soap opera, it’s something more: it’s a fabulous story, where the end cannot be so easily predicted.

Have you ever been a casino player? Even if not, you will fully taste the passion and risk of this game by watching this movie. The magic of this movie is the feeling that everyone can be Ben Campbell, the main character – a young and smart man, M.I.T. student in Boston, who is waiting for a scholarship to transfer to the Harvard School of University and become a doctor. Unfortunately, Ben cannot afford the 300,000$ cost for schooling, and here the magic begins…

Ben’s usual life turns upside down, when his professor of math, Micky Rosa, introduces him to a secret group of his best five students and teaches them the skill of card counting at BlackJack (learn more about this game here). As a result, every weekend, the five students go to secret trips to Las Vegas and, using their math skills and secret signals, win thousands of dollars in casino after casino. In order to remain incognito, the five students change clothes, wigs and names, pretending each time to be someone else.

I don’t want to tell you the full story and let you enjoy this movie by yourself, as the beautiful transformation of Ben’s life is not forever. The problems start when the security service of a Las Vegas casino begin to count losses and start hunting the secret group of math geniuses…

Even though Ben promised that he will stop playing when he reaches the sum of 300,000$, his pride and ambitions played a low-down trick. The sincere, shy young man becomes a provident card-sharper. This is how money will change Ben.

Of course any dramatic story isn’t full without a beautiful love fairy-tale. And 21 isn’t an exception. Ben falls in love or, maybe, it’s all just adrenaline and passion? Where all these problems and false dreams will lead him, together with the problems with the casino security, his professor of math and passion for his bad-luck genius colleague, see in the full movie.

You will not be disappointed, as besides the interesting plot, the actors are very well selected. Among them you will recognize Jim Sturgess, Kevin Spacey, Kate Bosworth and others. If you, like me, are tired of soap dramas and predictable endings, this movie is for you. Here is the taste of adrenaline, risk and big money. So how about reserving a few hours to watch a good movie?
