Central and Eastern European Producers Look Globally for Partners

11 February 2017 8:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Increasingly international-minded producers in Central and Eastern Europe are scoring more projects than ever with co-productions on the rise, from historic tales to biopics, in territories both with and without incentives.

The Czech Republic’s Stillking, long a forerunner in bringing Western producers to Prague, wrapped season one of “Genius” (pictured above), which focuses on Albert Einstein, in February; the National Geographic Channel project from Ron Howard with Fox 21 Television chronicles exceptional lives.

The History channel’s “Knightfall,” an adventure tale based on the last days of the 14th century Knights Templar, shot in Prague and Malta for A+E Studios, and also enlisted Stillking.

Film United, another outward-looking Prague-based shingle, is headed by Rick McCallum. It was busy recently with “Britannia,” a 10-part Sky and Amazon series that follows ancient Rome’s conquests of the Celts in the British Isles. As with many such high-end series, Prague’s »

The Matrix Relived in these amazing new images from John Wick Chapter 2

17 January 2017 5:53 AM, PST | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

The action choreography of Chad Stahelski and David Leitch’s John Wick was much praised, and with good reason. The plot of a retired assassin coming out of said retirement to take on a pile of Russian gangsters isn’t breaking moulds. However the stunning gunplay and stripped down narrative gave the film a great sense of momentum and style. Having Keanu Reeves take his stand alongside Jean Reno, Liam Neeson et al in the Mature Assassin’s Guild was also a fine move.

There’s an excellent new gallery of images from the film which have just been released. They offer a very stylish look at some of the scenes we’re to expect in early February when we turn the page on John Wick Chapter 2.

As you can see from the images below The Matrix duo of Reeves and Laurence Fishburne get some screen time together, »

Newswire: Taraji P. Henson to play a stone-cold killer in hitwoman drama Proud Mary

11 January 2017 2:58 PM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

Taraji P. Henson is moving from checking figures to taking lives, with Variety reporting that the Hidden Figures and Empire star has signed on for the lead role in the new hitman drama Proud Mary. Henson will play a hired killer whose violent life is turned upside-down when a young boy awakens “the maternal instinct she never knew she had.” In other words, it’s pretty much Leon: The Professional, except with a badass Cookie Lyon in the place of loner Jean Reno.

Proud Mary is being produced by Screen Gems, from a script by Christian Swegal and John Stewart Newman. A director has yet to be attached.
