Exclusive Interview: James Watkins for ‘The Take’

17 October 2016 3:47 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

After the enormous success of the movie version of The Woman In Black, director James Watkins returns to our screens with The Take. Set in modern-day Paris, it follows a ruthless CIA agent Sean Briar (Idris Elba) and young pickpocket Michael Mason (Richard Madden) as they are brought together in pursuit of a terrorist group.

Question: Was attracted you to The Take? Was it the chance to do something opposite to The Woman In Black?

James Watkins: I didn’t do it just for that reason but it certainly was an attraction. I guess you come to projects for lots of reasons. One is, hopefully, story. I liked the Hitchcockian set-up of the story; the wrong man gets the bag that is the catalyst for all the events, in a North By Northwest sort of a way – that double-chase structure you have in a Hitchcock film, where they’re »

James Bond, and the perils of casting a new 007

12 October 2016 10:21 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Oct 14, 2016

With the question of who's playing James Bond in James Bond 25 unresolved, we look back at the casting conundrums 007 has faced before.

Since 1962, fewer men have played James Bond than have walked on the moon. Despite the relatively long turnaround of the role, the subject of who might follow in the footsteps of Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig in the future has fuelled many column inches and tabloid splashes.

It feels as if speculation about the seventh 007 in Eon Productions' long-lived spy franchise has been at fever pitch since this time last year, when Craig was doing the promotional rounds for Spectre and commented that he would rather “slash [his] wrists” than play Bond again. It's only after a year of constant reports on the subject that his far more optimistic comments at last weekend's New Yorker Festival »

NBC revving up a TV adaptation of The Italian Job

1 October 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like we can add The Italian Job to the ever-increasing list of movies heading to the small screen, with Deadline reporting that NBC has given a script commitment to a drama series inspired by the 1969 classic and its 2003 remake.

The site reports that the TV series, which hails from Paramount TV, is described as “a noisy, sexy, thrill-ride that follows a make-shift family of expert criminals, who are forced out of retirement when an opportunity arises to get their beloved ‘patriarch’ out of jail. At the core of this dysfunctional family is Charlie Croker — played by Michael Caine and Mark Wahlberg in the movies — a handsome and charming ex-con, who tried to go straight, but like the rest of his crew, can’t resist the adrenaline rush of the high-stakes heist world.”

Rob Weiss (Ballers) and Benjamin Brand (Bollywood Hero) are writing the series – which is said to preserve the action, »

Paramount Revving Up “Noisy, Sexy” Reboot Of The Italian Job

29 September 2016 8:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Citing both the 1969 original and its subsequent 2003 remake as inspiration, Paramount is said to be revving up a new interpretation of The Italian Job for TV.

Deadline broke the news yesterday evening, confirming that Rob Weiss (Ballers, Entourage) and Benjamin Brand will join forces to flesh out the script, before going on to executive produce alongside Donald De Line, the producer involved in that 2003 remake headlined by Charlize Theron and Mark Wahlberg.

If you’re unfamiliar with the property, The Italian Job is a British crime caper centering on a make-shift family of expert criminals. Forced out of retirement to complete one last job – a time-honored action trope if ever there was one – their mission involves rescuing their beloved “patriarch” from a long sentence behind bars. Charlie Croker, played by Michael Caine and later Wahlberg, is the crooning ex-con at the heart of the story, with Deadline noting that the »

Newswire: Rev up the Mini Coopers: The Italian Job is coming to TV

28 September 2016 3:22 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

NBC is working on a TV version of iconic heist caper movie The Italian Job. That’s per Deadline, which says that the network has given a script commitment to a new crime drama based on the 1969 Michael Caine classic. The show is being written and produced by BallersRob Weiss, whose old Entourage co-producer Mark Wahlberg starred in the original’s 2003 remake.

NBC is promising a “noisy, sexy, thrill-ride” with its new show, along with—presumably—a whole host of product placement for BMW’s Mini Cooper. Coopers—originally produced by the British Motor Corporation—were a key component of the climax of both films, with the Quincy Jones-scored Cooper chase from the original a regular entry in lists of the best cinematic car chases of all time.

A sequel to the 2003 film, tentatively titled The Brazilian Job, has been in the works for years, but ...

How will the heist film classic translate to the small screen? NBC is planning to find out...

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that NBC has given a script commitment to a TV series based on The Italian Job. The show will follow a found family of expert criminals who come out of retirement to try to save their beloved patriarch from jail. Like the previous films, the TV show will feature the character of Charlie Croker at its centre, a criminal trying to go straight, but who can't help but get pulled back into this adrenaline-fuelled world of high-stakes crime. You know how it is.

Unlike the movies, it seems that the show will feature a prison break rather than a heist. But, hey, who says we can't have both? According to the report, the show hopes to "preserve the action, humour, romance and picturesque international locales from the movies. »

Films people agreed to make to get their dream projects made

Simon Brew Oct 7, 2016

From Demolition Man and James Bond through to Speed 2 and Steven Seagal: the movies filmmakers took on to get other projects made.

One for the studio, one for yourself? That’s sometimes been the case when it comes to making movies, and we suspect – under the surface – it happens more than we’re ever told. However, every now and then, it becomes clear that someone has signed up for a movie, with getting the film they really, really want to make as the hidden reason. Such as in these cases…

Nigel Hawthorne: Demolition Man

The late, great Nigel Hawthorne wasn't much of a fan of the much-liked Sylvester Stallone-Wesley Snipes showdown, Demolition Man. In his autobiography Straight Face, Hawthorne called the experience of making the film "miserable", and wasn't impressed with the time lost on set waiting around for Stallone and Snipes.

The Revelations Of Raising Cain Recut

24 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

When Brian De Palma’s Raising Cain bowed in American theaters during the summer of 1992, it was anticipated by fans of the director as a welcome return to the sort of formalist genre contraption he hadn’t indulged in since the creative blow-out (forgive me) of Body Double eight years earlier. However, when the lights came up, even within the ranks of the De Palma faithful there was polarization. A handful defended it as one of the director’s masterpieces, while a greater number seemed to consider it at best middle-tier De Palma, a fully committed attempt to deal with typical De Palma-esque narrative elasticity and thematic concerns such as time, chronology and dream logic, all in the context of an examination of the morphing perimeters of American masculinity and parental responsibility which somehow, in the end, seemed as out of balance as its psychically fractured protagonist. Meanwhile, the »

The 20 Funniest Movies Ever Made

23 September 2016 8:29 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Comedy is very subjective but a great comedy will stand the test of time and continue to make generation after generation laugh. Some people like their humor dry, while some like it shocking and offensive. Whatever your taste, good humor will always be out there. Here are 20 great comedies that will no doubt continue to be appreciated in the future.

 20. Fargo: The Cohen Brothers funniest black comedy may not be for everyone's taste, because it is quite violent. However, underneath all that is a droll observation on the human condition, highlighted by a winning performance from Frances McDormand as a very likeable and very pregnant police chief. Her character police chief Marge Gunderson is kind, clever and compassionate. She’s a much more admirable role model than all the recent ‘badass female’ clichés we’ve been inundated with lately. Another standout here is William H. Macy as a two-bit schemer who's plan utterly backfires. »

‘Captain America’ Conquers DVD, Blu-ray Disc Sales Charts

22 September 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Captain America: Civil War,” the latest Marvel Studios superhero blockbuster, shot straight to the top of both national home video sales charts upon its release last week.

The third “Captain America” film rode its $408.1 domestic theatrical gross to a No. 1 debut on both Npd VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart and dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart for the week ended Sept. 18.

The 13th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe line is one of those rare sequels with a bigger theatrical take than either of its two predecessors. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier: (2014) earned $260 million, while the original 2011 “Captain America: The First Avenger” made $177 million.

The horror sequel “The Conjuring 2,” from Warner, debuted at a distant No. 2 on the overall disc sales chart, selling just 10% as many copies as “Captain America.”

Jeremy Irons Tells BAFTA Audience About Streep, De Niro and The ‘Creepy’ Characters of His Illustrious Career

13 September 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jeremy Irons is in many respects the quintessential English film actor. That’s not simply because of the honeyed diction and innate elegance, but the versatility that has enabled him to travel with ease between romantic leading man, edgy character actor and sinister villain, towards an Indian summer of ever-dependable supporting player.

Think James Mason. In fact, Irons and Mason even have a role in common – the riskiest of roles, Nabokov’s infamous pedophile Humbert Humbert, Mason most famously in Kubrick’s “Lolita” of 1962, Irons for Adrian Lyne in 1997. It’s difficult to imagine many Americans jumping at a character who came second in Time’s “Top 10 Worst Fictional Fathers,” or possessing the nuance necessary to make us almost like the man.

Zach Braff Inks Deal With ABC For New Comedy Series Start Up

30 August 2016 2:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it’s likely to undergo a name change closer to the time – so as to avoid a clash with Crackle’s new drama – Start Up is Zach Braff’s new comedy series that has now found a home at ABC.

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that the Garden State and Wish I Was Here will direct and star in Start Up, a project that will herald a reunion between Braff and Scrubs co-executive producer Matt Tarses. Indeed, it was Tarses who hatched the script, one based on Alex Blumberg and Lisa Chow’s titular podcast about the “human side of business.”

Braff, meanwhile, is due to make his long overdue return to serialized content, headlining Start Up as an Average Joe in “his mid-30s with a wife and two kids makes the crazy decision to quit his good job and dive into the brave new world of starting a business. »
