Bryan Cranston will join James Franco in the 21 Laps and 20th Century Fox comedy “Why Him?”
John Hamburg is onboard to direct, and will co-write the script with Ian Helfer. Shawn Levy is producing under his 21 Laps banner, with Ben Stiller also attached to produce through his Red Hour Films shingle. Dan Levine, 21 Laps president, is overseeing the project along with Fox’s Jeremy Kramer.
The comedy is set over the holidays, when a Midwestern dad travels with his family to visit his daughter at college, and soon finds himself in a battle for her affections with her brash new tech billionaire boyfriend.
Franco and Cranston are already building chemistry on Franco’s next directing gig “In Dubious Battle,” in which the two co-star.
Cranston’s “Trumbo” hits theaters on Nov. 6 following its September premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. He is also lending his voice to DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3.” He is repped by UTA.
Every Thing Will Be Fine is the latest film from Wim Wenders, with James Franco starring in a film about a man whose life is thrown into disarray after a car accident. Marie-Josée Croze, Rachel McAdams, and Charlotte Gainsbourg also star in the slow-burn drama, and there’s a good Every Thing Will Be Fine trailer to check out below.
In addition to that, we’ve got the Wim Winders touring retrospective that features the 295-minute version of Until the End of the World. (You read that right; it’s a five-hour cut.)

Universal Studios Hollywood is bringing some humor to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights, with a new attraction inspired by the apocalypse horror comedy This Is the End.
Stars Seth Rogen and James Franco teamed with the Los Angeles theme park to announce a 3-D maze based on the 2013 movie, which saw the actors playing versions of themselves as end-times survivors trying to avoid the horrors of hell after the righteous have been raptured. The film also starred Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Emma Watson, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson, among others.
Rogen, Franco and Hill collaborated with Universal Studios on the maze, which transports guests to Franco’s movie-house, in which the actors are trapped in the film. “We’ve been working with them on it for a few months,” Rogen wrote on Twitter. The This Is the End maze joins a slate of previously announced Halloween Horror Nights attractions from high-profile franchises, including The Walking Dead, Crimson Peak, Insidious, and John Carpenter’s Halloween. The scare-fest runs select nights from Sept. 18 through Nov. 1.
“This is the End brings a new dimension of fear to Halloween Horror Nights by fusing the best of two extreme worlds — horror and comedy — to create a literal and figurative three-dimensional experiential version of the film,” said John Murdy, creative director at Universal Studios Hollywood and executive producer of Horror Nights, in a news release.
Will the maze end with a Backstreet Boys dance party? We can only hope (or pray).
