Disney isn’t the only movie studio shuffling around its release dates. Sony has announced a major shift in the debut of its upcoming comedy, Sex Tape.
The flick, which stars Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel and Jack Black, has been having some production problems in recent weeks. The movie’s title has allegedly been changed from “Sex Tape” to Basic Math, and was recently denied $55,000 from Columbia Pictures. It also was denied a rental request from Parker Middle School in Reading, Mass. due to the sex tape-centric title and plot.
Now “Sex Tape” — or “Basic Math,” if that title sticks — is slated for a July 18 release date instead of its original July 2, 2014 one. In some good news for the movie, Rob Lowe recently joined the cast. Directed by “Bad Teacher’s” Jake Kasdan, Sex Tape tells the story of a married couple (“Bad Teacher” stars Diaz and Segel) who wake up in the morning to discover the sex tape they made has gone missing.

Cameron Diaz is ready to get “Bad” again. The actress has signed on as a producer for CBS’s series adaptation of her 2011 film Bad Teacher, which starred Diaz as Elizabeth Halsey, an individual familiar with the move told TheWrap on Thursday.
The series will star Fringe actress Ari Graynor as Meredith Davis, a hot, confident, unapologetic trophy wife who takes a job at a middle school to meet a new man after her husband leaves her without a dime. Sex and the City alum Kristin Davis will play Meredith’s nemesis Ginny, a math teacher, choir director and faculty president.
Bad Teacher is being produced by Sony Pictures Television in association with Mosaic Media Group. “My Name Is Earl” and “Community” veteran Hilary Winston is executive-producing. Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, who were behind the film, are executive-producing as well, along with Jimmy Miller, Sam Hansen and Michael Lasker.
The series will premiere mid-season. (Source)
The Counselor is Cormac McCarthy’s new screenplay that’s directed by the legendary Ridley Scott and features an all-star cast including Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz. McCarthy is responsible for some stunning books including No Country For Old Men and The Road, both of which have hit the big screen with impressive success and this new one is highly anticipated and featured in our ‘must-see’ films for the Autumn.
In this, his first straight to screen script, the story-line focuses around Fassbender’s character who’s a lawyer and get in too deep with drug trafficking and then, we believe, it all starts to go very wrong. This brand new clip shows Cameron Diaz with cold intent and a dead straight stare. She looks hard and focused here, I’m also glad that the recent clips don’t give too much away but give you a snippet of the world we’re delving into:

Did that title appropriately grab your attention? Alright then, let me explain. Rather than making what would possibly be the most awkwardly hilarious sex tape of all time, it looks like the Jason Segel/Cameron Diaz-led comedy Sex Tape, directed by Jake Kasdan (Orange County, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story), has now picked up Jack Black and Rob Corddry.
Sex Tape casts Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as a married couple that decides to make a sex tape only for it to go missing. Although the fate of the tape is obviously not yet revealed, Black will be making a cameo as the CEO of a porn company, meaning that we’re in for some seriously funny moments. Corddry, on the other hand, will fill the role of the best friend helping to track down the tape.
Rumors first attached Reese Witherspoon to the project, but the addition of Diaz in her place might give Sex Tape the edge it needs. No offense to Witherspoon (she knows I still love her), but Diaz can pull off the naughty parts of movies just a bit better.
Although not much is known about Sex Tape, it’s safe to say that with such a talented cast and an accomplished comedy director behind the camera, this could shape up to be a major comedic event. As long as the studio pushes for the hard-R rating it needs, we could have another winning adult comedy. It’s hard to imagine the film lacking heart with Segel in the lead, and Kasdan could get a winning performance out of a local drama club. Are you guys excited to see these goofs get together for a raunchy good time? Let us know in the comments, and we’ll be sure to keep our ears to the ground for any new information! (Source)
