Robin Hood: Origins Movie In The Works

1 hour ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A brand new Robin Hood movie is cooking up over at Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company as Deadline reports Appian Way has snagged Robin Hood: Origins. The script comes from Joby Harold, who recently penned upcoming Guy Ritchie reboot King Arthur: Knights Of The Roundtable. According to the outlet, this latest in a long line of Hood movies will present “a gritty version of the rogue do-gooder.”

Gritty or not, Origins faces its fair share of competitors. There are currently two other projects in development concerning the wealth redistribution agent, and with Harold’s new script on the market that brings the tally up to three. One of those is headed up over at Disney, who acquired a spec script from Brandon Barker. Titled Nottingham & Hood, it’s been dubbed “a revisionist take on the Robin Hood legend.” The studio aims to capitalize on its Pirates Of The Caribbean-inspired tone »

Mining value from an Oscar win

1 hour ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Eddie Redmayne’s Oscar win has thrown a new potential star into the ring as players in the independent space hustle to package films for Cannes and beyond.

Sales agents have long bemoaned the small pool of marketable talent that can galvanise pre-sales and represent value around the world.

The British actor’s Oscar coronation last Sunday for his lead role in The Theory Of Everything offers an opportunity to broaden the range of available star power in non-studio projects.

Indeed Redmayne and Oscar nominee and Birdman star Michael Keaton were on almost every talent list scrutinised by sales agents in the run-up to the Efm in Berlin.

Now every sales agent in the business will be approaching Redmayne’s representatives to see if he would be suited to whichever projects they may be sizing up.

Just as agents often demand higher salaries for clients who taste success at the Oscars, so sales agents »

The value of an Oscar win

Eddie Redmayne’s Oscar win has thrown a new potential star into the ring as players in the independent space hustle to package films for Cannes and beyond.

Sales agents have long bemoaned the small pool of marketable talent that can galvanise pre-sales and represent value around the world.

The British actor’s Oscar coronation last Sunday for his lead role in The Theory Of Everything offers an opportunity to boost the available star power of desirable acting talent in non-studio projects.

Indeed Redmayne and Oscar nominee and Birdman star Michael Keaton were on almost every talent list scrutinised by sales agents in the run-up to the Efm in Berlin.

Another 'Robin Hood' Movie in the Works and This Time It's Gritty

1 hour ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Hollywood just loves developing multiple versions of the same story about a certain figure at the exact same time, and right now the hot commodity is the heroic Robin Hood. Disney has a project in development called Nottingham & Hood from a spec script by Brandon Barker that is supposed to have the same tone and franchise hopes and Pirates of the Caribbean. Meanwhile, Sony Pictures picked up a Robin Hood pitch with multiple stories to make up a Sherwood Forest cinematic universe. Now Deadline reports Guy Ritchie's Knights of the Roundtable scribe Joby Harold is entering the mix with the gritty Robin Hood: Origins. Obviously what we need is more gritty adventures, because there's not enough of that going around Hollywood. Details are scarce other than that generic, meaningless word used to describe movies nowadays, but Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way production banner is producing. Studios are circling the project now, »

Like It or Not, You're Getting a 'Robin Hood' Origin Story

2 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In tax accounting there is a concept called the "Robin Hood effect", which describes both the tax bracket setup that requires income above certain levels be taxed at higher rates and also the reduction of deductible items once a taxpayer exceeds a certain adjusted gross income threshold. None of you care about that, I'm sure, but aside from watching Robin Hood: Men in Tights about a dozen times in the span of a week when I was in middle school, it's the only thing that came to mind when I saw the following news from Deadline, announcing a new version of the Robin Hood tale has landed at Leonardo DiCaprio's production house Appian Way, this one a "gritty version of the rogue do-gooder" entitled Robin Hood: Origins, because what the hell else would it bec Joby Harold, who wrote the Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur script for director Guy Ritchie, »

Focus Starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie Earns 900K at Late Thursday Box Office

6 hours ago | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Will Smith and Margot Robbie headline the new con artist flick Focus that is widely expected to win this weekend's weak box office race, even without the head start the film received at late Thursday night showings last night.

Warner Bros. is reporting that Focus pulled in $900,000 from Thursday showings. The R-rated film and departure for Smith from his typical flashy blockbuster fare is tracking to wrap up the weekend somewhere in the range of $20 million. That should top the past two weekends' reigning box office champ, Fifty Shades of Grey.

Robbie is quickly making a name for herself in Hollywood after a splashy debut in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. Her next role as villainous and obnoxious Harley Quinn in Warner's DC Comics-based Suicide Squad will make her even more desirable for producers to snatch up for high profile roles.

Leonardo DiCaprio Aiming For Robin Hood: Origins

10 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Cliff Owen/APdo

Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen. Robin Hood, Robin Hood, will have a film or three, again.

Yes, the legendary hero who robbed from the rich, gave to the poor, and once had a soundtrack by Bryan Adams looks to be raising his bow to the big screen once more. The only concern is which studio will be getting there first. News has broken today from The Tracking Board that Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company, Appian Way, and producer, Joby Harold have a cunning plan to produce Robin Hood: Origins, which will (if the title doesn’t give it way) look at how the outlaw came to be.

Origins isn’t the only entry on the list, though. As well as the DiCaprio/Harold’s take, Disney have Pirates of the Caribbean-ey, Nottingham & Hood in their to-do pile, and Sony also have the simple but not very effective, »

‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Gets ‘Who’s the Boss?’ Sitcom-Style Soundtrack (Video)

15 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The drugs, sex and drunken car crashes from “Wolf of Wall Street” seem a lot more wholesome when a perky sitcom theme song is added to them. The opulent and excessive black comedy starring Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Martin Scorsese has been recut with the “Who’s the Boss?” soundtrack, which makes even taking quaaludes and picking up prostitutes seem suitable for the whole family.

Leonardo DiCaprio developing Robin Hood: Origins

15 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A further Robin Hood origin story is in development, and Leonardo DiCaprio is involved...

In what amounts to the third competing attempt to revive the adventures of Robin Hood into a new post-Avengers world, Leonardo DiCaprio and Joby Harold have joined forces to bring new life to the Princes of Thieves and his merry men. Sherwood Forest is getting awfully crowded these days…

As first broken by The Tracking Board, DiCaprio’s Appian Way production company is teaming with Harold’s Safehouse Pictures production company to produce a spec script Harold has entitled Robin Hood: Origins. As you might expect, it is a new detailed origin story for the bandit of Sherwood that with its current title is just begging for franchising capabilities.

Harold has previously contributed on Edge Of Tomorrow as an executive producer and as one of its many writers, as well as a writer on Warner Bros' upcoming Guy Ritchie reimagining, »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Leonardo DiCaprio

16 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Who would have thought it? Leonardo DiCaprio, the handsome Lothario from Titanic with boy-ish good looks and an infinite well of charisma at his disposal, would go on to become of the best and most accomplished actors of his generation – and one of the most popular. Yes, Leo was once pegged as an actor defined entirely by his good looks, and yet – over the course of the past decade – he’s managed to shatter perceptions and crush opinion.

Apart from being an award-winning actor, dater of super models and millionaire philanthropist of the highest order, DiCaprio has also managed to earn a reputation for being one of the nicest guys in Hollywood – a humble chap who goes out of his way to ensure that everybody’s having a ruddy good time. No, he hasn’t won an Oscar (aren’t those memes hilarious?), but it’s surely just a matter of time. »

Margot Robbie hit Leonardo DiCaprio - Behind the scenes from The Wolf of Wall Street

20 hours ago | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Margot Robbie was terrified she would be arrested and sued for assault after hitting Leonardo DiCaprio. The 24-year-old actress admits she spontaneously smacked the 40-year-old actor in the face and screamed ''F**k you!'' instead of kissing him in a bid to impress the heartthrob and producers while auditioning for 'The Wolf of Wall Street'. Recalling the awkward encounter, she said: ''In my head I was like, 'You have literally 30 seconds left in this room and if you don't do something impressive nothing will ever come of it. It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance, just take it.' And so I start screaming at him [Leo] and he's yelling back at me. And he's really scary. I can barely keep up. And he ends it saying, 'You should be happy to have a husband like me. Now get over here and kiss me.' So I walk up really close »

New Awards Season Rules: Would more nominees help solve the Oscars' diversity problem?

20 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Excuse us if we go out on a limb here, but something tells us the collective brain trust at The Academy is glad this awards season has mercifully come to an end. After an incredibly diverse 86th Academy Awards ceremony, where "12 Years a Slave" took Best Picture, a Mexican filmmaker won Best Director, Lupita Nyong'o earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar and John Ridley won Best Adapted Screenplay, the Oscars appeared to take a step back in 2015. It wasn't just that "Selma" was snubbed in a number of major categories. The #OscarsSoWhite hashtag became a historical footnote that will haunt the Academy for years (and, trust, it will be back again if the public wills it). But it had more to do with all white nominees in the acting categories than just "Selma" itself. This also brought to light that it was yet another year without a female nominee in the Best Director category, »

26 February 2015 11:58 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you were to put together a power ranking of today's cinematographers you'd have to consider Emmanuel Lubezki for the #1 position after winning the Oscar Best Cinematography for two years in a row with Gravity and Birdman, and now it seems to talking points for The Revenant, his follow-up feature with Birdman director, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu are already being made. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly last month, Inarritu told the mag, "It's a very experimental thing that we're doing here...I'm now addicted to doing things that can fail horribly or maybe that can give us a surprise. We are all into it." The comment was in reference to the fact they are shooting the picture with only natural light in the wilds of Alberta, Canada and Lubezki adds to the drama in an interview with the Asc saying, "We're doing a lot of exterior work with natural light and Steadicam. »
