Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu helms the project whose fate is now in limbo as New Regency rushes to get Annapurna to take over the previous financing commitment made by Worldview. That latter company has been pulling back on film financing following last month's departure of its CEO amid claims of personal misconduct.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Will Poulter star in the 1823-set film about a fur trapper mauled by a grizzly bear who is then robbed and left for dead by the two men enlisted to stay with him. Despite the odds, he survives and seeks revenge on the pair.
Worldview's exit hasn't been the only issue. New Regency's regular partner Fox refused to come onboard the film due to expensive and essentially »

The financing comes with shooting planned to start in two months. New Regency president Brad Weston told Variety that director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu will start shooting in Calgary and British Columbia in September.
Twentieth Century Fox plans to open the film in limited release in late 2015 before a wide release in early 2016.
New Regency will finance half the cost of “The Revenant,” which has a budget of about $60 million. Brett Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment is also financing while Worldview Entertainment has backed off from providing funding.
New Regency came on to the project in 2011.
Gonzalez Inarritu is directing DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Will Poulter. Gonzalez Inarritu and Mark Smith wrote the screenplay based on the Michael Punke novel “The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge” published in 2003. The novel, »

Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures is nearing a deal to co-finance Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's “The Revenant,” a revenge thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, with New Regency, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap. Worldview Entertainment was slated to co-finance “The Revenant” but its CEO Christopher Woodrow recently left the company amid allegations of personal misconduct, prompting Worldview to pull out of the project as it gets its own house in order.

With a prime opening slot for "Birdman" at the Venice Film Festival next month, things look to be going pretty well for Alejandro González Iñárritu, and he even has "The Revenant" with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy gearing up to shoot this fall. Or does he? THR reports that the film, which was slated to start shooting in September, is now in jeopardy after the troubled production company Worldview Entertainment backed out of financing the movie. 20th Century Fox isn't interested in putting up the money themselves citing the pay-or-play deals for the two leads (meaning they get paid even if the movie doesn't get made), but there's more complications. In a typically ambitious move by Iñárritu, he wants to shoot the movie—about a 19th century fur trapper who is mauled by a grizzly bear, left for dead and robbed, who then goes on a mission of vengeance—in sequence, »

With the fate of Leonardo DiCaprio's upcoming project The Revenant hanging in the balance, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that producer Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures is negotiating to come aboard as financial backer. The move comes as New Regency, the project's principal backer, attempts to replace financing that was to have come from Worldview Entertainment, which has pulled back on film financing lately in the wake of CEO Christopher Woodrow's June exit amid claims of personal misconduct. The film, to be directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Babel) and co-starring Tom Hardy and Will Poulter, is a harrowing survival story

True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto is halfway through scripting the second season of his philosophical mystery-crime series, and he's offered some intriguing details about the show's future direction in an interview with The Daily Beast.
5 Things We Learned From 'True Detective'
While Season One focused primarily on two unlikely detective partners – Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) and "Rust" Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) – in Louisiana, the next installment will feature an all-new cast with "four central roles" (instead of the previously announced three) and will be set in California.

Mmmmm, where were we since we last spoke in regards to the Oscar race in late May? There have been a few minor rumblings and plate shiftings but nothing truly seismic.
Release Date Shuffle
No press release or dropped hint or trailer dates should ever be taken at face value when it comes to release dates. These things change back and forth all the time but, at least for the moment, it looks like I had it backwards assuming we'd get Carol and Far From the Madding Crowd sooner in 2014 and MacBeth and The Suffragette later in 2015, so I've had to move the charts around accordingly.

Screen Junkies has put together a supercut of moments in film where the oft used phrase "Are you kidding mec" has been uttered and the insert from The Lego Movie as well as the several instances Adam Sandler alone has used the phrase (seemingly closely followed by Leonardo DiCaprio) is pretty great. Do know, however, the last third is not safe for work as it goes from "Are you kidding mec" to "Are you f**king kidding mec" So, headphones on... yt id="tHtDpDuaiv4" width="500" »

We may be going back to a time when we wore headgear and had acne, but amidst the pubescent awkward phase of our lives, was the glory of pop princesses like Britney Spears and heartthrobs like Nsync totally ruling our worlds.
They’re cheesy, they’re colorful and they’re in many ways completely ridiculous, but only these magazines (that still exist, by the way) truly knew the way to our hearts. They helped us answer questions like: Do I have what it takes to be a Backstreet Boys girl? What do I need to do to have a romance like Britney and Justin’s? Who are the girls the members of New Kids On The Block just can’t live without? Very, very important things. Obviously.

Use the F-word twice in a movie? That’ll cost you. Don’t remember to count the number of pelvic thrusts you showed? Now you’re in trouble. Showing full frontal female or male nudity and don’t have good distribution? You’re done before you even started.
Hollywood’s rating scale is broken. The MPAA’s system of G, PG, PG-13, R and Nc-17 has meant increasingly less since it came into use in 1968. For years there have been cases of major studio pictures with obscene stretches of violence passing as PG-13 to boost summer box office receipts, while the harmless Oscar winner The King’s Speech was slapped with an R-rating for fear children would be corrupted by hearing Colin Firth use profanity.

On July 8, J.K. Rowling released a short, short story about grown-up Harry Potter and the Sequel She Swore She’d Never Write, and over in the magical land of central Florida, the Harry Potter theme park’s Diagon Alley expansion is entertaining six-hour lines on opening day. So apparently, it’s Harry Potter day, and to celebrate this completely random occasion, I’ve decided to do something equally arbitrary and sort a bunch of celebrities into the four houses of Hogwarts. Why? Art needs no reason.
First, the criteria. The Hogwarts houses are divided based on traits: Slytherins are cunning, »

‘I have no desire to operate on my own children’
Dennis Lehane explains why he is against adapting his own books.
Best-selling author, Boston native and screenwriter Dennis Lehane has been accused of a few things in life. For instance there are people convinced this author of hard edged thrillers wrote Mystic Pizza. That late eighties, tissue thin chick flick which helped launch Julia Roberts onto the world stage before Gary Marshall, Richard Gere and a Lotus finished the job. Dennis Lehane wrote Mystic River by the way, just to avoid any confusion.
Then there’s the small issue of his fan mail. Not all of it you understand, just the celebrity stuff he continues to receive for writing The Departed. You see his only problem is William Monahan wrote the book, adapted it into a screenplay and received the Oscar. »

Is that you, Leonardo DiCaprio? While the 39-year-old actor may have shot to Hollywood heartthrob status after he appeared in the 1997 film Titanic, the Wolf of Wall Street star appears to have undergone a bit of a transformation as of late. Namely, he's morphing into Jack Nicholson. DiCaprio was snapped on the beach on Sunday playing volleyball with his 21-year-old girlfriend Toni Garrn, where he was photographed looking like the spitting image of the 77-year-old Oscar winner—so much so that one might easily do a double take. The Inception star was seen wearing his hair in an unkempt style similar to Nicholson's and even sported a goatee identical to the iconic thesp. He also rocked »
Leonardo DiCaprio and his girlfriend, Toni Garrn, spent their Fourth of July weekend in the sand, playing beach volleyball with friends on Sunday in Malibu, CA. Leo debuted a longer 'do and a bigger beard while Toni rocked a blue bikini, and they kept close both during the game and on the sidelines. While Leo stayed near his La home over the holiday weekend, he and Toni have been on plenty of lavish vacations since they got together. They were most recently spotted together at the Cannes Film Festival in France, kissing after the annual amfAR Gala in May, and on a romantic, Pda-filled vacation to Bora Bora in April. And wherever Leo goes, he loves to show off his sporty side with games of tennis, bike rides, and more. It's just part of his guide to the good life, although usually his fun and games take place aboard a yacht, »

"We can adapt it. We're Hollywood."
Looks like a big screen take of The Six Million Dollar Man may finally be slow-mo running into theaters fairly soon. Peter Berg is set to produce, and possibly direct, and it looks like he's looking to his Lone Survivor star Mark Wahlberg for the titular role. Wahlberg is rumored to be in the running to play Steve Austin, the character that audiences first fell in love with in the 1970s TV show.
Tracking Board reports that an adaptation of the show, which itself was based on the novel, Cyborg by Martin Caldin, has been in some form of development for nearly 20 years. Along the way, the likes of Kevin Smith, Jim Carrey, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Bryan Singer have been involved with potential adaptations. But with Berg onboard, and the star of Transformers: Age of Extinction potentially ready to take the project on, it »
