Step one: make a lot of awesome videos. Step two: Make sure everybody loves those videos. Step three: Make a mother freakin' movie.

The comedy trio of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone are developing an untitled movie with Universal Pictures, The Wrap reported. Schaffer and Taccone will co-direct the film, while Judd Apatow has signed on as a producer.

There's not much information about the plot of the comedy so far except that it's "set in the music world" and followed an earlier deal that The Lonely Island would create digital content for Fox.

"The Master of Suspense" Alfred Hitchcock's earliest surviving work on record The White Shadow (1924) is now available for free streaming via the National Film Preservation Foundation (NFPF). A tale of two sisters--one good and the other evil--based on Michael Morton's novel Children of Chance, the silent film was long thought to be lost for decades until it was recovered in the garden shed of New Zealander cinema projectionist Jack Murtagh in 1989 and donated to the NFPF.

For decades, Jackie Chan's been rapidly kicking, jumping out of trees, and breaking every bone in his body to entertain audiences. Now, Chan says that his Buster Keaton-inspired kung fu days are over. While promoting his new movie, Chinese Zodiac, Chan said, "I want to be an Asian Robert DeNiro," claiming that he was "too old" to continue doing action films. As he's 58, he should be granted that wish.

Before smirking commences, Chan has taken on a smattering of dramatic roles in the past, going as far back as the first Police Story movie and as recently as 2009's crime drama, Shinjuku Incident.

Patrick Dempsey plays a doctor on Grey's Anatomy, so naturally, when he saw a car flipped over in Malibu, the actor pulled the teenage driver out and stayed with him until paramedics arrived. While this definitely makes Dempsey a do-gooder, one can hope that he could perform his role from Loverboy, where he played a pizza delivery boy/gigolo, as his next screen-to-real-life project.
