Wonder Woman Loses Its Director

14 April 2015 5:06 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

One of the early decisions made about the upcoming "Wonder Woman" movie was that a woman will direct it. The problem is that there aren't that many female helmers who are known for taking on superhero films or even action films. The obvious choices were Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) or Lexi Alexander (Punisher: War Zone), but the project eventually went to Michelle MacLaren ("Breaking Bad," "The Walking Dead"). But now comes word that MacLaren is no longer attached to "Wonder Woman." "Given creative differences, Warner Bros and Michelle MacLaren have decided not to move forward with plans to develop and direct 'Wonder Woman' together," said the studio. Gal Gadot is still on board to play the title character and the release date is still set for June 23rd, 2017. MacLaren's replacement will be announced soon. »

The 82nd Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

9 April 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

As I mentioned last time out, this series has officially returned. Yes, once again I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent (or now recent-ish) Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be attempting to do just that, time will still tell if it’s something that gets stuck with or not. Again, if nothing else, this continues to give you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright then, here goes nothing folks…behold my »

Listen: Jessica Chastain Talks Working With Terrence Malick, Kathryn Bigelow & More In 1-Hour Conversation

7 April 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jessica Chastain seemingly became famous overnight. While she shot “Wild Salome” with Al Pacino earlier (the movie still hasn’t come out stateside, but you can read our review here), 2011 marked The Year Of Chastain. Suddenly, she had a string of movies coming to cinemas: Terrence Malick’s “The Tree Of Life,” Jeff Nichols’ “Take Shelter,” Ralph Fiennes’ directorial effort “Coriolanus,” John Madden's "The Debt," and, of course, “The Help,” which earned the actress her first Academy Award nomination. She was everywhere, and in high demand, soon garnering work and acclaim in films by Christopher Nolan, Kathryn Bigelow, John Hillcoat, J. C. Chandor, and more (later this year she has films coming out by Guillermo del Toro and Ridley Scott).

Ride Or Die: A Guide To The Fast And The Furious Series

1 April 2015 10:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It started quietly simply as a street racing variation on the 1991 Kathryn Bigelow film Point Break, the tale of an undercover cop that gets too close to the criminals he’s trying to put away. It was fairly straightforward, but in one of those packed summers at the multiplex filled with sequels and remakes, The Fast and the Furious stood out from the pack, launching the career of two young actors named Paul Walker and Vin Diesel, and, inexplicably, starting a franchise that’s now 14 years and 7 films long.

It was not an easy path from part one to part seven, nor was it a direct path. The fascinating tale of the Fast and Furious series would make a good story in and of itself, but the result was a unique confection, even in modern franchise crazy Hollywood. Fast and Furious was not the subject of extensive pre-planning nor were »

Keanu Classic: Point Break

20 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We at Thn collectively love Keanu Reeves and have been immensely excited about his return this year in John Wick. Although not released in UK cinemas until April, Thn have been lucky enough to have already seen it and we can tell you that it is all kinds of awesome.

John Wick was so brilliant that it has awoken my long-forgotten admiration for Mr Reeves and compelled me to revisit his extensive back catalogue immediately. He might not be known as being the most heavyweight of actors but you have to admit the man knows how to make an entertaining movie, and he’s not bad to look at. Even if everything else about the film is terrible or ridiculously over the top, Keanu is always awesome – Jonnhy Mnemonic and Chain Reaction would be nothing without him.

Every Friday between now and the release of John Wick on 10th April, »

Juliette Lewis on Why Sitcom TV Almost Made Her Give Up Acting

13 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When she was just 17, Juliette Lewis got the attention of Martin Scorsese, landing a role in “Cape Fear” — then won an Oscar nom for impressively holding her own against Robert De Niro. But it was an even earlier part, at age 13 — in Showtime’s TV movie “Home Fires” — that earned her her first Variety mention, with our critic singling out her “sure performance.” “I was shocked to see it was the first job I’d ever done,” says Lewis, now starring in ABC’s “Secrets and Lies.”

You were so young. Did you always want to be an actor?

My dad (Geoffrey Lewis) is a character actor, so I always knew of the acting business as a line of work. You never have the same job twice; you work long hours, you get to work with interesting, colorful people. I always was connected to acting in that way — not from reading about it in magazines. »

New Projects: ‘Star Wars’, Kathryn Bigelow, and The Blob

12 March 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Disney has become well aware that even releasing just the tiniest hint of news about Star Wars is enough to send the blogs into a feeding frenzy. One of those bad habits is studios staking a claim on a calendar date far out in the future. And they’ve now revealed that the release date for Star Wars: Episode VIII will be May 26, 2017. Rian Johnson has also officially been confirmed to direct the film, with Josh Trank in line to direct yet another standalone film. No word on a subtitle for Episode VIII just yet, but one of the other unknown, nebulous Star Wars projects does; the first of the Star Wars spinoffs starring Felicity Jones is now known as Rogue One. I’ll leave that to you in the interwebs to figure out what that vague title actually refers to.

Busy Kathryn Bigelow Sets Bowe Bergdahl Pic, But What of Her Other Projects?

11 March 2015 12:09 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Reports are swirling around that director Kathryn Bigelow's next film will be centered on Pow Bowe Bergdahl, a Us Army soldier tortured and held captive by Taliban affiliates in Afghanistan from June 2009 to May 2014. Circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Bergdahl, who ended up in enemy hands after wandering off base, were a hot topic in the media, which speculated about the soldier's potential misconduct and rumored anti-American sentiments. Last year, Annapurna Pictures acquired rights to another Bigelow film, "True American" starring Tom Hardy, about the story of Bangladesh Air Force officer and disgraced immigrant Raisuddin Bhuiyan. But it appears that the yet-to-be-titled Bergdahl project will instead be her next film, with Annapurna's Megan Ellison also backing.

Kathryn Bigelow to Follow 'Zero Dark Thirty' with a Movie About a Controversial Prisoner of War

9 March 2015 4:38 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Unlike a lot of filmmakers these days, Kathryn Bigelow is not afraid of courting controversial topics. The Hurt Locker took on the psychology of the Iraq war by focusing on one man who keeps putting himself in the line of fire (and explosives) again and again and again because it's the only thing he can truly feel any more. She zoomed out her focus a bit more with Zero Dark Thirty, which tracked the psychology of the American government post-9/11 and its black site operations that fueled the pursuit of Osama Bin Laden. And now her third film is sticking in similarly hot button territory, as she's moving forward on a movie about Us soldier Bowe Bergdahl. If you're unfamiliar with Bergdahl, the very short version of his story is that he wandered off of a military base...

Kathryn Bigelow Targets Prisoner Of War Movie As Next Project

9 March 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Zero Dark Thirty helmer Kathryn Bigelow is preparing to move ahead on her next film, a prisoner of war drama revolving around the true-life story of Bowe Bergdahl.

News comes via Deadline, who reports that the project has taken top priority on the director’s busy schedule, unofficially pushing her work on The True American and South American drug film, Triple Frontier. Producer Megan Ellison stated that studios are already circling the as-yet-untitled Bergdahl drama, which will act as the third collaboration between Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal.

Still in its embryonic state, it’s expected that the picture will center on the Bergdahl’s gruelling story as an American soldier captured by the Taliban and held hostage for a full five years. During this excruciating period, the prisoner of war was subjected to torture and upon his release as part of a high-profile and indeed controversial exchange, Bergdahl began »

Kathryn Bigelow's Next Movie Will Be About Pow Bowe Bergdahl

9 March 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last summer both directors Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty) and Todd Fields (Little Children) were said to be developing films about the headline-making Army sergeant Bowe Bergdahl after the United States government exchanged five captured, high-ranking Taliban operatives in order to get the captured American prisoner of war back from Taliban captivity. Now it appears Bigelow will follow through as a Deadline feature that has Mike Fleming yammering with former Variety editor Peter Bart reveals the director has put the thriller Triple Frontier on the backburner yet again to focus on the Bergdahl project. In the wake of the success of American Sniper, this seems like a smart move for Bigelow, especially considering the controversial subject matter. Following the exchange for Bergdahl's release, there was a wave of outrage as accusations of Bergdahl deserting his base voluntarily surfaced, which raised questions as to his role in the war and the »

Bigelow Swaps "Frontier" For Bergdahl

9 March 2015 7:56 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"The Hurt Locker" and "Zero Dark Thirty" duo of director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal seem to have made up their minds on which project they have in development will become their next film together.

Deadline reports that the proposed film about Pow Bowe Bergdahl, which Megan Ellison will produce, has taken priority for Bigelow with the untitled film to be her immediate next project.

Bergdahl was a U.S. soldier kidnapped by the Taliban and held captive for five years. He was released last summer in a prisoner exchange that quickly became the subject of political controversy.

The move puts the pair's long in the works ensemble crime drama "Triple Frontier" on the back burner. That multilingual, "Traffic"-esque tale takes place in the one of the world's most crime-ridden regions - the border where Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay converge. »

Finally Some News on Kathryn Bigelow's Next Movie

9 March 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

For the longest time it seemed like Kathryn Bigelow's next film would be the border zone thriller Triple Frontier, but Deadline now says that film has been pushed aside. So what's nextc Is it that adaptation of Anand Giridharadas' non-fiction book "The True American: Murder and Mercy in Texas" starring Tom Hardyc Nope, it's going to be the one we learned about last June, bringing Bigelow back together with screenwriter Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) to tell the story of Taliban Pow Bowe Bergdahl. Megan Ellison's Annapurna is producing and studios are expected to begin bidding soon. As I wrote back in June, I would rather see a story of the late "Rolling Stone" reporter Michael Hastings whose article on Bergdahl, "America's Last Prisoner of War" is being adapted for Todd Field to direct. We've heard enough about Bergdahl and I also wish Bigelow would »
