Cameron Crowe's Next Movie Bumped Out Of Christmas To Next Summer

3 hours ago | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Writer-director Cameron Crowe's next project may not have a name yet, but The Untitled Cameron Crowe Project is gaining some curious buzz thanks to a big shift in its release date. Coming Soon reports The Untitled Cameron Crowe Project was originally being eyed for a Christmas 2014 release, but that Columbia Pictures and Regency Enterprises have backed out of yuletide timings in favor of a potentially more eye-catching opening in the late spring/early summer of 2015. To that end, The Untitled Cameron Crowe Project will now open on May 29, 2015. Had Cameron's unnamed rom-com hit this December, it would have faced off against stiff competition in the forms of likely award season frontrunners like Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice; flashy epics like Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings or Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies; and family fare like Annie, and Night of the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. »

New Images Arrive From 'The Hobbit 3,' 'Exodus,' 'Goosebumps' & Judd Apatow's 'Trainwreck'

18 July 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With summer starting to wrap up (after "Guardians Of The Galaxy" in two weeks, blockbusters get considerably thinner on the ground), it's time to start looking even further ahead to big movies planned for the fall, or even for next summer. And happily, with Comic-Con just around the corner, the studios have obliged, releasing a slew of images for some new upcoming movies. First up is "Exodus: Gods & Kings," Ridley Scott's first attempt at the Biblical epic. The first live-action big-screen version of the story of Moses since "The Ten Commandments," Scott's picture is taking the big-budget "Gladiator"-style approach, but has drawn controversy due to casting Caucasian actors in Jewish and Egyptian roles, and for casting Australian actor Joel Edgerton as a tangerine with eyebrows drawn on with a magic marker. Christian Bale, Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Mendelsohn and Indira Varma star alongside Edgerton, »

Moonfall May Land With Darren Aronofsky

18 July 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

David Weil is a young man on the cusp of very big things. As an actor he has delivered small roles in the TV show The Young And The Restless, and in little-known movies such as 5 Hour Friends. But the very big things that are about to happen revolve around screenplays he has written – most notably Moonfall, which is apparently being sized up by Academy Award nominated director and producer, Darren Aronofsky.

It seems that Moonfall may have developed quite a following of interested parties, as it has been doing the rounds of Hollywood studios. Weil has been a fixture on many radar screens since his script Half Heard In The Stillness was included in the 2013 Black List. That script featured a story in which a young man finds himself being rescued from the basement of a child predator, where he has been held for ten years. Apparently, Half Heard »

Ridley Scott Gets The Devil In The Kitchen

18 July 2014 11:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When chef Marco Pierre White published his autobiography in 2006, his infamously tumultuous life was guaranteed to be a dramatic read. Originally titled White Slave, the book was released in America under the new moniker, The Devil In The Kitchen, and readers were not disappointed. Now, it seems the story of the man widely regarded as the first ‘celebrity chef’ may be headed for the screen, as Ridley Scott, Giannina Facio and Colet Abedi have optioned the work for development.

Following the man from his humble and tragic beginnings in Leeds, UK, to the height of fame and fortune at the centre of London’s restaurant scene, The Devil In The Kitchen depicts the genesis of “the godfather of modern cooking.” Earning his stripes from some of the best chefs in the country, such as Albert Roux and Raymond Blanc, White himself would go on to train Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal, »

Week in Review: Tommy Wiseau might have a TV show (or not)

18 July 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Week in Review rounds up the best of the rest of film and TV news hitting the web this week. Check out the rest of the Sos Blog for more news updates. 

When Tommy Wiseau, the director of self-proclaimed masterpiece The Room (i.e. one of the best worst cult movies ever made), isn’t touring around college campuses and dodging chucked spoons at midnight screenings of his own film, or better yet, trying to play a video game, he’s presumably still out there being the auteur he thinks he is. Those desperate to know what he’d be up to next need wait no longer, as Wiseau has shared a clip from an upcoming sitcom he’s made called The Neighbors. Naturally, it looks awesome.

The clip for the show, as well as the show’s website, says it will premier on “Comedy.TV” this September. Except that might be a total lie, »

Ridley Scott Options Raucous Chef Marco Pierre White's Memoir The Devil In The Kitchen

It.s no secret that huge fans of Jon Favreau.s Chef around these parts, which means not at all surprised that chef movies are on the rise - though maybe from places we didn.t expect. Blockbuster filmmaker Ridley Scott has teamed up with his oft-collaborative actress Giannina Facio and Iranian screenwriter Colet Abedi (Fashion House) in optioning The Devil in the Kitchen, the excellent memoir from the original culinary genius asshole Marco Pierre White. If read The Devil in the Kitchen, or if you keep up with world-renowned chefs in general, aware of Marco Pierre White. In 1994, he became (at 33) the then-youngest chef to earn 3 Michelin stars, arguably the highest honor in the land. This was done by dedicating a large portion of his life to the kitchen, where he often turned boys into men in a sense, while holding »

Microsoft's Missed Opportunity in Hollywood: ‘What a Zero, the Whole Thing’

17 July 2014 5:19 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Microsoft stormed Hollywood two years ago armed with its Xbox and one of the most powerful executives in the television business. It leaves with nothing to show for it. Microsoft will close its Xbox Entertainment Studios in the coming months, the company said Thursday, laying off some 200 employees. President Nancy Tellem and lieutenant Jordan Levin will hang around to finish off a couple of shows, but producing TV shows is no longer in Microsoft's long-term plan. So ends a fitful two-year experiment with an enterprise that never found its footing. Despite partnerships with Steven Spielberg, Sarah Silverman and Ridley Scott, »

Ridley Scott Options The Devil In The Kitchen

17 July 2014 11:22 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Ridley Scott always has so many projects bubbling away in his development kitchen that it’s a wonder he has time to monitor them all. Still, that’s what a production company like Scott Free is for. The delivery truck has backed up to the loading bay, bringing yet another new possibility: Marco Pierre White’s memoir The Devil In The Kitchen: Sex, Pain, Madness And The Making Of A Great Chef.Scott has splashed some cash alongside fellow producers Giannina Facio and Colet Abedi to buy the rights to White’s tome, which somewhat unsurprisingly, chronicles his rise to become one of the pioneers of the celebrity chef archetype. It has all the usual ingredients: a riotous childhood, rock star status in the 1980s kitchen scene bristling with other trendy types and his work training the likes of Mario Batali and Gordon Ramsay. Oh, and the fact that he »

10 Reasons Prometheus 2 Should Be Scrapped For Alien 5

16 July 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Believe it or not, it’s already been two whole years since Ridley Scott’s Prometheus graced our screens and…produced one of the most venomously divisive reactions to any blockbuster in recent memory.

Even ignoring that, its box office gross was a solid $403 million, ensuring Fox were eager to press on with a follow-up, tentatively titled Paradise, which would presumably see sole survivor Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) carrying android David’s (Michael Fassbender) head with her to the Engineer homeworld in order to find out why they wanted to wipe out humanity.

Though we can’t deny that there’s at least some interesting potential there, we’re still waiting on tenterhooks for a fifth Alien film, something both James Cameron and Ridley Scott expressed an interest in pursuing last decade (with Cameron writing and Scott directing), though Cameron has changed his mind since the AvP movies happened, »

6 Best & 6 Worst Historical Movie Epics Of The 2000s

15 July 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

The first trailer for Ridley Scott’s upcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings landed earlier this week, and it certainly seems like a return to familiar territory for the veteran director, who has helmed several big-budget epics over the last decade. While the trailer itself was a little underwhelming, it did boast the stunning visuals we’ve come to expect from Ridley Scott movie and an impressive cast led by Christian Bale that also features Joel Edgerton, John Turturro, Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul and Sigourney Weaver.

Ever since the director resurrected the genre with Gladiator at the turn of the millennium, the historical epic has had a patchy track record at the box office to say the least, and it remains to be seen how his latest effort will fare. Exodus will need to be a great movie to stand any chance of commercial success, with a release »
