FilmNation, Roadshow Films strike equity pact

16 December 2014 7:17 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

FilmNation Entertainment has sold a roughly one-third stake of the company valued at $18m to Roadshow in a strategic partnership that sees both parties seek to expand their production operations.

For Glen Basner’s New York-based venture the move brings more capital to the development and production pipeline and acquisitions fund, while the wholly owned Village Roadshow subsidiary bids to expand its production hub beyond Australia.

All existing FilmNation partners will retain their ownership positions in the company.

The first two feature films scheduled to begin production under the new structure in 2015 for release in 2016 are John Lee Hancock’s The Founder, about McDonald’s creator Ray Kroc, and The Good House to star Meryl Streep and Robert De Niro.

FilmNation will also commence production on the Cannes market hit Story Of Your Life starring Amy Adams under the direction of Denis Villeneuve in May.

10 Best Female Movie Characters Of 2014

15 December 2014 2:52 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox Searchlight

The fact that it’s 2014 and we still have to differentiate between a “female” movie character and simply a movie character is troubling. If you watch Robert De Niro in Raging Bull you’ll never be tempted to say, “boy, that’s a really interesting and strong male character.” However, Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley is still explicitly praised as a “strong female character,” as if it’s such an oddity that an emphasis needs to be put on the fact that she’s a woman.

While film school classes and incensed critics continue to debate the lack of women in film, female actresses have been fighting the good fight on the silver screen itself. Alas, not in anywhere near the numbers needed, but progress is still being made.

2014 has seen its fair share of damsels in distress, nagging housewives, and ditzy girlfriends; it has also seen a »

Eddie Redmayne learned he was a Golden Globe nominee while Christmas shopping

11 December 2014 9:21 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Most Golden Globe nominees were trying to wake up at a God-awful hour on the west coast this morning. Many were doing the same at a more reasonable time in New York. Best Actor in a Drama nominee, SAG Awards nominee and "Theory of Everything" star Eddie Redmayne? Well, Christmas shopping came first. "I'm in London and it's a blue sky, but it's pretty cold and I had an afternoon off so I had to do all my Christmas shopping in about three hours," Redmayne says. "Then I got the phone call and now I'm about to get stuck into a drink or two far too early in the afternoon." After being reminded that it's never too early to celebrate something like this, Redmayne laughs and adds, "That's what I thought. That's what I'm telling myself, actually." The reason the 32-year-old Brit was out and about was two fold. "We've »

How Mark Wahlberg's Body Freaked Out After He Lost 60 Pounds

9 December 2014 3:00 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In preparation for his performance as the titular Jim Bennett in The Gambler, Mark Wahlberg made serious sacrifices to his own health and dropped a scary 60 pounds. This idea isn't that rare in Hollywood, as actors like Christian Bale and Robert De Niro have previously made headlines for similar taking similar actions, but what makes Wahlberg's case somewhat different is the fact that he experienced a very strange side effect of his weight loss. Us Weekly was present at the premiere of The Gambler at AFI Fest last month, and it was there that the actor revealed that his desire to lose more and more weight through the production of the movie created a unique problem, as his malnutrition actually led to his lips turning blue. Because it wasn't actually in character for Jim Bennett to be experiencing this, Wahlberg and the filmmakers actually got complaints from the higher ups »

Doctor Who update: Moffat on Troughton, Frost, Missy

5 December 2014 12:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mr Steven Moffat has been chatting about Doctor Who's upcoming festive episode, as well as Missy's future...

As a festive treat, Steven Moffat has given out a lot of Doctor Who press quotes in the last few days, even by his own standards, in a big preview for Radio Times. We'll get started then...

On Michael Troughton's role in Last Christmas, he said "He doesn't play the son of Doctor Who or anything, he plays a scientist."

With more enthusiasm, he also discussed the episode itself: "scary, tense and claustrophobic... It's The Thing meets Miracle on 34th Street. It's certainly the strangest bloody thing I've ever written." Quite a statement there.

On his decision to include Santa, the Grand Moff said that "Santa is written in properly, in a science-fiction way, into Doctor Who. Nick is ideal. He's what Santa should be in Doctor Who land."

Jason Statham stars in Wild Card: new trailer lands

30 November 2014 10:23 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jason Statham stars in a remake of the movie Heat, now going by the name Wild Card. Here's the trailer for it...

Last week was something of a busy one for trailers of big movies. You don't need us to tell you that big promos for the likes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World and Pan landed. However, it seems that somebody out there tried to sneak out a trailer for a new movie from The Statham, hoping we wouldn't spot it.

They don't know us very well.

Here, then, is the first trailer we've seen for Wild Card. This is the film that's a remake of the film Heat. That's the Burt Reynolds movie Heat, as opposed to the Robert De Niro/Al Pacino one. Wild Card is based on the book by William Goldman, and he's penned the screenplay for the film too. It stars »

Jake Gyllenhaal is unrecognizably ripped in 'Southpaw' image

29 November 2014 4:24 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jake Gyllenhaal lost some 25 pounds to look rail thin in the new film "Nightcrawler," but the versatile actor will be back in fighting shape in the upcoming boxing drama "South Paw." In a transformation similar to Robert De Niro's physical fluctuation in Martin Scorsese's 1980 "Raging Bull," Gyllenhaal packed on 15 pounds of solid muscle in order to play Junior Middleweight Champion Billy "The Great" Hope in theAntoine Fuqua-directed film. Check out the massively-muscled Gyllenhaal below: The photo debuted on Deadline.com. "Southpaw" is being directed by Fuqua ("Training Day") from a script by "Sons of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter. The Weinstein Company will release the film sometime next year. The studio unveiled a demo reel from the film -- set to an Eminem song -- at the Cannes Film Festival in May.  »

Jake Gyllenhaal Is Ripped and Unrecognizable in ‘Southpaw’ First Photo

29 November 2014 1:33 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After dropping 30 pounds for his role as a bug-eyed sociopath “journalist” in “Nightcrawler,” Jake Gyllenhaal has now bulked up for his latest project.

Gyllenhaal looks unrecognizable in the first photo from his upcoming Weinstein Co. film “Southpaw,” in which he plays a professional boxer. The actor reportedly packed on 15 pounds of muscle to bring Junior Middleweight Champion Billy “The Great” Hope to the bigscreen.

The actor told Variety‘s Ramin Setoodeh during an interview for a September cover story that he worked out six hours a day for six months to build enough muscle to look like a championship prize fighter. This is a far cry from his preparation for “Nightcrawler,” which involved eating as little as possible (if at all) and running 15 miles from his house to the set.

First Look: Jake Gyllenhaal is Ripped in First 'Southpaw' Picture

29 November 2014 8:15 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you listened to my interview with Jake Gyllenhaal, discussing his preparation for Nightcrawler, the first look photo above of him playing a professional boxer in Antoine Fuqua's Southpaw won't come as much of a surprise. You're already well aware of just how much he prepares and gets involved with his roles. Speaking with Deadline with regards to Gyllenhaal's ripped physique, Fuqua said, "Jake is going to change how people see him. I had him training twice a day in the boxing ring, he did two-a-days seven days a week." Gyllenhaal lost 30 pounds for his role in Nightcrawler and clearly had to beef up after that for his role in Southpaw. Speaking with Variety earlier this year his trainer Terry Claybon said, "We made a deal, if you're going to learn how to box, you're going to have to get in there and act like a boxer." Fuqua adds to that saying, »
