Daniel Neeson (Yes, Liam's Son!) Debuts Eco-Friendly Fashion Line That Gives Back to the Environment in a Major Way

14 July 2017 8:33 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The latest trend in fashion has been models with famous parents flooding the runways at fashion week, but Daniel Neeson, 20-year-old son of actor Liam Neeson, is switching things up — instead of modeling the clothes he’s designing them.

After two years of preparing, his eco-concious clothing line, Pine Outfitters, is launching its first-ever pop-up shop in N.Y.C. from July 13 to July 19. And it doesn’t just look good, it does good too—for every item sold, the National Forest Foundation will plant a tree to support the environment. Talk about making a grand entrance into the fashion world! »

How Jaume Collet-Serra Could Save the ‘Suicide Squad’ Franchise

12 July 2017 1:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It often feels like the Trump regime has monopolized the business of bad ideas, but Hollywood can always be counted on to remind us that there’s plenty to go around. When Variety broke the news that WB is circling “The Shallows” director Jaume Collet-Serra for “Suicide Squad 2,” the well-sourced rumor was troubling in its own way. For one thing, the news would mean that there is a “Suicide Squad 2,” and that’s a lot to handle at a time when most of us are hanging on for dear life. For another, Jaume Collet-Serra is a promising filmmaker at the peak of his talent and the height of his sway, and “Suicide Squad 2” is the kind of burden that shouldn’t fall to someone who has so much to offer. Or to anyone else, for that matter, because haven’t we suffered enough?

One of the precious few modern directors »

The Shallows director looks set to helm Suicide Squad 2

12 July 2017 3:12 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

It seems that Warner Bros and DC Comics are pushing ahead with their future plans for their Dceu with news that a director for the upcoming sequel to last year’s Suicide Squad may have been found.

Deadline is reporting that acclaimed director Jaume Collet-Serra is the new frontrunner to take over the anticipated sequel after many other filmmakers had been linked. Biggest of them was Mel Gibson, who directed last year’s hit Hacksaw Ridge, and had apparently met with WB to discuss the film but is seems that the actor/director has passed.

Which leaves Collet-Serra as the main target for the studio now to take the reigns for the film – indeed, the filmmaker has been making a steady climb up the Hollywood ladder in recent year. His first Us film was horror hit »

The Shallows director Jaume Collet-Serra emerges as Suicide Squad 2 frontrunner

12 July 2017 1:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In Warner Bros.’ search for a director to replace David Ayer on Suicide Squad 2, a frontrunner has finally emerged. According to Deadline, Orphan and The Shallows helmer Jaume Collet-Serra is currently the studio’s first choice to take the reins on the upcoming comic book movie sequel.

The studio did, in fact, meet with Mel Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge), who landed on a list for the gig back in February, but Gibson decided to move on after a production delay. The report also claims that several other filmmakers were considered as well, presumably some of the other names on the aforementioned list, including Ruben Fleischer, Daniel Espinosa and Jonathan Levine.

Nothing is official as of yet, but if talks continue and a deal is reached, Collet-Serra will be the latest in a long line of commercially successful directors to become attached to Dceu projects. From James Wan (The Conjuring) to »

HBO Are Making A New Feature Length Steven Spielberg Documentary

12 July 2017 12:18 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

U.S. cable network HBO are planning a new feature-length Steven Spielberg documentary. Titled simply Spielberg, the new documentary will apparently aim to pull back the curtain on his remarkable career more than ever before. It will also explore the legendary filmmaker’s filmography in depth, revealing how his experiences fed his work and changed it over time.

Celebrated documentarian Susan Lacy is producing and directing the new Spielberg documentary, which will air on HBO Stateside very soon – October 7th, 2017. It is expected to roll out to internationally affiliates – including Sky Atlantic in the UK – shortly afterwards.

The film will feature insights from members of Spielberg’s family, as well as friends and colleagues – Lacy reportedly interviewed over 80 subjects for the new film, including the likes of J.J. Abrams, Christian Bale, Drew Barrymore, Cate Blanchett, Francis Ford Coppola, Daniel Craig, Daniel Day-Lewis, Brian de Palma, Laura Dern, Leonardo DiCaprio, Richard Dreyfuss, »

The Shallows Director Could Tackle ‘Suicide Squad 2’

11 July 2017 11:42 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

French director Jaume Collet-Serra, who helmed the Liam Neeson actioner Non-Stop, as well as last year’s intense shark thriller The Shallows, may be heading to Warner Brothers for the Suicide Squad sequel. Variety reports that Collet-Serra is the favourite to take the director’s chair for Suicide Squad 2, which will see the return of Will Smith and Margot Robbie as Deadshot and Harley Quinn respectively.

The studio reportedly wants to kick the film into gear for the first quarter of 2018, but Collet-Serra is also attached to a movie revolving around the infamous Waco events. That project was announced recently and is set up at Annapurna, while the filmmakers also has the incoming Liam Neeson-led movie The Commuter set for cinemas very soon.

Smith’s schedule is also jam-packed. He will lead the cast of the Ang Lee-directed Gemini Man, and also play the Genie in Disney’s live-action version of Aladdin. »

Suicide Squad 2 eyeing The Shallows director

11 July 2017 10:18 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jul 12, 2017

Jaume Collet-Serra is bubbling to the top of Warner Bros' list to direct Suicide Squad 2...

The hunt for someone to steer Suicide Squad 2 may be nearly over. The sequel to last year’s commercial success (although hardly a critical one) has been on the lookout for a director, since it became clear that the man who steered the original film, David Ayer, was instead set to focus on Gotham City Sirens, a DC movie centered on female villains.

Suicide Squad 2 had been linked with Mel Gibson as a potential director, but when production was pushed back to get a new draft of the screenplay in place, Gibson’s interest in directing the film waned.

Instead, Warner Bros is now homing in on Jaume Collet-Serra, who last year scored a hit with shark flick The Shallows. He’s also directed several Liam Neeson-headlined features, Non-Stop, Unknown, Run All Night »

Newswire: The Shallows’ Jaume Collet-Serra is the new Suicide Squad 2 frontrunner

11 July 2017 6:48 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In February, a number of directors emerged as the top picks to direct Suicide Squad 2, including Hollywood golden boy Mel Gibson, Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer, Safe House’s Daniel Espinosa, and Warm BodiesJonathan Levine. Now, none of those guys are attached any longer, and The Shallows director Jaume Collet-Serra is the new frontrunner. That’s according to Deadline, but a separate Hollywood Reporter story says that Gibson decided not to take the job over some script delays and that Warner Bros. has a new treatment written by Zak Penn (who worked on The Avengers and Ready Player One).

Collet-Serra is also the director behind the Liam Neeson movies Non-Stop, Run All Night, and The Commuter, and he has apparently been in high-demand in Hollywood for a while now. Of course, Suicide Squad 2 isn’t an unforgettable Liam Neeson vehicle like Run All Night, so it remains to »

Suicide Squad 2 Targets The Shallows Director Jaume Collet-Serra

11 July 2017 6:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few months after rumors of Mel Gibson directing Suicide Squad 2 surfaced, it seems the studio has set their sights on another filmmaker. Jaume Collet-Serra, who directed Unknown and Run All Night for Warner Bros., is reportedly the studio's top choice to take the helm on this sequel. Warner Bros. reportedly looked at a number of directors, including Mel Gibson, for this coveted directorial gig, but sources claim the studio is focused on putting Jaume Collet-Serra in the director's chair for this superhero sequel.

Deadline broke the news of Jaume Collet-Serra's potential involvement today, which comes just four months after the studio locked in a new Suicide Squad 2 writer, with Adam Cozad (The Legend of Tarzan) coming aboard to write the screenplay. Original Suicide Squad director David Ayer revealed last summer, just days after the first movie hit theaters, that he was already working on the story for the sequel. »

‘Suicide Squad’ Sequel: Jaume Collet-Serra Is Top Choice to Direct

11 July 2017 5:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Shallows” helmer Jaume Collet-Serra is the front-runner to direct Warner Bros.’ “Suicide Squad” sequel starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie.

David Ayer directed the last super-villain film, which was a huge hit for WB despite negative reviews, bringing in more then $700 million at the box office. This time around the studio wanted a new person behind the camera and considered several possibilities including Mel Gibson.

It’s unknown when the DC Comics project would shoot, given the ensemble’s busy schedule, including Smith who is already attached to shoot Ang Lee’s “Gemini Man” and Disney’s “Aladdin,” for which he will voice the Genie. Insiders say the studio would love to be up and running by March.

Collet-Serra is in high demand, as Annapurna just attached him to direct the thriller “Waco” and he recently finished work on the Liam Neeson action pic “The Commuter.”

His earlier credits include “Non-Stop”, “Unknown” and “Run All Night.” He »

The Bottom Shelf: The Return Of Swamp Thing, Creepozoids, Nekromantik 2

Nick Aldwinckle Jul 20, 2017

Our latest round up of genre DVDs and Blu-rays is here, with Wes Craven, Creepozoids, Dario Argento and more...

With the DC cinematic universe currently riding high on the coattails of Wonder Woman, Patty Jenkins’ megahit antidote to the miserablism of messrs Bats and Soops, it would seem churlish to point out that company’s past failures. Things being as they are, though, with the recent release of a camp classic on Blu-ray, it’s time to do precisely that.

The sequel to Wes Craven’s 1982 superhero effort that was more Toxie than Alan Moore, Jim Wynorski’s 1989 adaptation of the tale of scientist turned mutant bog creature Alec Holland, slyly monikered The Return Of Swamp Thing, cranks the ridiculousness dial right up to 'comedy horror' level. As Swampy meets the love of his life, Abigail – Heather (Locklear) be thy name – and battles the evil Anton Arcane (Louis Jourdan, »

Halle Berry Never Stops Fighting In New Trailer For ‘Kidnap’

6 July 2017 11:55 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Originally scheduled to be released last December, no one really noticed when “Kidnap” starring Halle Berry didn’t arrive in theaters. It looks like straight-to-video fare, and we’re sure even Berry herself won’t be highlighting this on her CV, especially with the potential awards contender “Kings” on the horizon. But in case you cared, the movie is finally arriving and….it still looks pretty bad.

Directed by Luis Prieto (who helmed the remake of Nicolas Winding Refn‘s “Pusher“), the movie has a pretty simple, sorta Liam Neeson-esque premise: a woman’s son gets kidnapped, and rather wait for the slow wheels of justice to turn, she takes matters into her own hands.

Halle Berry Goes After Her Son's Abductors in New 'Kidnap' Trailer

5 July 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Oscar winner Halle Berry has been relatively absent from the big screen in recently years, but she could be in for a serious comeback with Kidnap. The thriller stars Berry as a mother whose young son (Sage Correa) is kidnappped. Confronted with the reality that few abducted children are ever found, she takes the law into her own hands, and a wild chase ensues. The movie seems like Liam Neeson territory, except it's even more intense because, as everyone knows, you don't mess with a mama bear's cubs.  The new trailer for Kidnap barely shows the son or the bad guys. It's a real showcase for Berry, who has proven in movies as diverse as Monster's Ball and X-Men that she has great dramatic chops as well as the makings of an action hero...
