Netflix Plans to Release 80 Original Films in 2018

11 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix expects to release around 80 original films next year, as it looks to hit the kind of scale in movies that it’s achieved on the TV side, according to chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

“They range anywhere from the million-dollar Sundance hit, all the way up to something on a much larger scale,” like Will Smith-starrer “Bright,” Sarandos said in an investors’ interview Monday about Netflix’s third-quarter 2017 results.

Bright,” a cop action-thriller movie directed by David Ayer, had a reported production price tag of $90 million. It’s set to debut on Netflix worldwide on Dec. 22. Sarandos also cited as a forthcoming big-budget picture Martin Scorsese’s gangster movie “The Irishman,” starring Robert DeNiro, slated to be released on Netflix in early 2019. “The Irishman” has a budget of more $100 million.

Sarandos said with the release of “Bright” — a “big-budget, event movie” — “I think people will start seeing the potential for this original movie initiative, that it »

China Box Office: 'Never Say Die' Becomes Biggest Single-Market Comedy Ever With $280M

15 October 2017 9:12 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Never Say Die just won't quit.

The body-swapping sports comedy from theater troupe turned film powerhouse Mahua Funage earned $30.9 million in its third weekend, bringing its 16-day total to a massive $280 million, according to box-office analysts EntGroup.

That was just enough to give it the title of biggest comedy ever in a single market, taking the crown from Ben Stiller's and Robert DeNiro's Meet the Fockers ($279.3 million, 2004). It also surged past Jackie Chan's Kung Fu Yoga ($250 million) from earlier this year, becoming the biggest comedy ever in the China market.

First image of Al Pacino as Jimmy Hoffa in Martin Scorcese’s ‘The Irishman.’

15 October 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

If you’re wondering just what Al Pacino is doing now he’s mugging for the camera, or so it would seem, in Martin Scorcese’s upcoming film The Irishman, which is due to come out in 2018. Pacino, along with Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci, has worked with Scorcese in the past, and has worked with DeNiro on more than one occasion. Amazingly Pacino and Pesci have never really worked together before, so this might be an interesting treat for the avid fans that have followed these stars throughout their long and illustrious careers. It seems as though Scorcese is doubling down

Amazon scraps David O. Russell’s drama series as it severs ties with The Weinstein Company

15 October 2017 7:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As part of the fallout from the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations, Amazon has announced that it has scrapped plans for an untitled drama series from David O. Russell, which it was co-producing with The Weinstein Company.

The project would have saw Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore starring, and apparently already had around $40 million spent during development.

“We support Amazon’s decision as in light of recent news and out of respect for all those affected we have decided together that it is best to not move forward with this show,” reads a statement from Russell, De Niro and Moore.

In addition to scrapping the drama from Russell, Amazon has also severed its ties with The Weinstein Company on The Romanoffs, and will now continue with the series on its own, rather than as a co-production with TWC. »

Interview with Double Date Director Benjamin Barfoot

Interview with Double Date Director Benjamin Barfoot

We at The Hollywood News have been in love with the film Double Date since we caught it in Edinburgh. It tells the tale of 29-year-old virgin Jim (Danny Morgan) and his best pal Alex (Michael Socha) as they go out on a night on the town with sisters Kitty (Kelly Wenham) and Lou Lou (Georgia Groome). The mission – to get Jim laid. Their plans take a very unexpected turn though, as the girls aren’t as innocent as they appear, and the quartet go on one Hell of a night. We can’t praise Double Date enough, going so far as to give it a mighty five stars when we reviewed it at Frightfest. The balance of horror and comedy is beautifully balanced and overall the movie is just a lot of fun.

After what seems like forever, Double Date is in cinemas across the UK. »

Georgina Chapman Is Looking for a Divorce Attorney Amid Harvey Weinstein Scandal, Source Says

13 October 2017 2:21 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Georgina Chapman is looking for a divorce attorney. 

A source tells Et that the Marchesa designer is "actively looking for a divorce attorney and has asked friends for recommendations" amid her estranged husband, Harvey Weinstein's, sexual misconduct scandal. 

According to Et's source, Chapman and Weinstein are not directly communicating. "If anything needs to be communicated between them, it happens between [Weinstein's oldest child from a previous marriage], who is relaying information if need be." 

The source adds that Chapman, who announced on Tuesday that she intended to leave Weinstein, was also looking for a crisis PR firm earlier in the week.

Al Pacino as Jimmy Hoffa Revealed in Martin Scorsese's The Irishman

13 October 2017 2:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Al Pacino has been spotted on the set of Martin Scorsese's The Irishman in Suffern, New York. Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci were first seen filming back at the end of September, but Pacino has not been seen until now. The 77-year old Al Pacino was filming scenes with 74-year old De Niro and the two appear to be enjoying their reunion as they can clearly be seen smiling in between takes. De Niro has worked with Pacino on 1995's Heat, 2008's Righteous Kill, and they were both in The Godfather Part II, though they never appeared on screen together.

Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro have made eight movies together, one of the most fruitful and consistent creative partnerships in Hollywood history. Joe Pesci has had supporting roles in three Scorsese pictures including Raging Bull, Goodfellas, and Casino. Shockingly, Scorsese has never worked with Pacino before, despite »

Bob Weinstein Releases Ambitious Statement About TWC’s Future, Which Rests Heavily on ‘Paddington 2’

13 October 2017 1:43 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the midst of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual assault scandals jolting the film industry, the company he founded with his brother Bob remains in doubt. With Harvey out of the picture, fired mere days ago as the scandal was just beginning to ratchet up in scope and size, co-chairman Bob Weinstein has issued a new statement insisting that The Weinstein Company is neither for sale or shutting down, despite continued rumors to the contrary.

Curiously, however, the statement makes no mention of the company’s most significant fall title, the Benedict Cumberbatch vehicle “The Current War,” which premiered last month at Tiff, or the Jeremy Renner crime drama “Wind River,” its biggest commercial success of the season. Both films have long been considered to be TWC’s best hope for awards season glory this year. Instead, Weinstein mostly focuses on building anticipation for “Paddington 2,” the sequel to the British adaptation »
