Duncan Jones Could Direct AMC's Preacher Adaptation

16 September 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Duncan Jones has apparently been out of the loop for awhile, working on a tiny little indie project you’ve probably never heard of. So he didn’t know that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are adapting the comic book Preacher into a series for AMC. When he asked Ain’t It Cool News’ Eric Vespe a question about the project on Twitter, Rogen jumped in to offer him the director’s chair. Jones accepted the offer, and things spiraled from there. I really can’t wait for the episode set on the Millennium Falcon. Here’s how the exchange went down.

@EricVespe @Sethrogen @evandgoldberg Are they doing it as TV or film?

Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) September 12, 2014

@ManMadeMoon @EricVespe @evandgoldberg TV show for AMC. Wanna direct some episodes? (I should note that we haven't finished a pilot script)

Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) September 12, 2014

Jones had a little fun before giving an apparently earnest answer. »

The Hollywood Reporter

Shekhar Kapur, the Indian filmmaker best known internationally for his two collaborations with Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth (1998) and Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007), will serve as chairman of the 19th Capri, Hollywood — The International Film Festival, the Gulf of Naples-based fest said Monday. This year’s edition will run from Dec. 26, 2014, through Jan. 2, 2015.

Advertised as “a bridge between Italian and American cinema,” the event occurs two months before its stateside counterpart, Los Angeles, Italia, which occurs the week of the Academy Awards. Since it honors talent at both locations, it has become a noted stop on the Oscar season circuit.

Absolutely Enormous Banner For ‘The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies’ Lands

15 September 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Heading to cinemas this coming December is the very last instalment in the hugely popular Hobbit series of movies from director Peter Jackson. Today, a massive banner for The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies was unleashed by the folks over at Warner Bros/ MGM, which we’re kind of expecting to show up in a cinema foyer near you very soon.

Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen Fry, Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Ken Stott, James Nesbitt, Orlando Bloom, John Bell, Manu Bennett, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Billy Connolly, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Lawrence Makoare, Sylvester McCoy, Graham McTavish, Dean O’Gorman, Mikael Persbrandt and Aidan Turner star in the film. Jackson directs from his own screenplay, which he co-wrote with Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, and Guillermo del Toro. »

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Banner Lays Out the Final Stand

15 September 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A brand new The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies banner has been released, detailing the epic scope of the final film in director Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy.  This banner reminds of the one that was released for An Unexpected Journey before the adaptation was turned into a trilogy, which gave us a look at how this series would have been structured as a diptych.  Judging by this massive banner for Five Armies, Jackson plans on going out with a bang in his final foray into Middle-earth, but I’ll always wonder if this adaptation might’ve been more compelling if the director had stuck to two films.  Forget the extended edition Blu-rays, I’d love to see an abridged version that cuts the trilogy into two movies. Anyway, hit the jump to take a look at the ginormous The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies banner. »

Venice Film Review: ‘The Dinner’

11 September 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Forget last year’s Dutch “Dinner” and chow down on Ivano de Matteo’s “The Dinner,” . De Matteo (“Balancing Act”) and co-scripter Valentina Ferlan snip away much of the novel’s shambolic final quarter, making the story about two couples learning their teenage kids have cold-bloodedly murdered a homeless woman a sharper, more credible statement about today’s culture of violence. Venice’s Europa Cinemas award will help continental bookings, but a-la-carte U.S. play could also benefit.

Koch’s novel has certainly touched a nerve: In addition to this film and the 2013 Dutch pic, it was announced last year that Cate Blanchett would make her screen directorial debut with a new adaptation. The book’s deceptive simplicity — told via first-person narration and set during a dinner at a chichi restaurant, with an increasing number of flashbacks — might seem like a scripter’s dream, yet the last section ruins the »

Reese Witherspoon, Eddie Redmayne Are Frontrunners In Their Oscar Categories

8 September 2014 7:58 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Variety wrote a piece, at the halfway point of the Toronto International Film Festival, asking where all of the compelling parts for women have gone. Admittedly, by this point last year, we had seen such awards-worthy performances as Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep in Blue Jasmine, Gravity and August: Osage County, respectively. This year, the choice parts for actresses appear slimmer, but it.s hard to give the column that much credence after having just seen Reese Witherspoon declare her Oscar candidacy . and leap to the front of the still-developing pack . with Jean-Marc Valle.s wonderful Wild. An adaptation of Cheryl Strayed.s best-selling memoir, Wild gives Witherspoon her best role since June Carter Cash, playing a woman at a crossroads who embarks on a three-month solo hike up the Pacific Crest Trail . a nature path that runs from Mexico to Canada.

Todd Haynes To Direct Reese Witherspoon In Peggy Lee Biopic

8 September 2014 2:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was four years ago when Reese Witherspoon signed on to star in an untitled musical biopic as the famed jazz singer, writer and composer Peggy Lee. Having personally secured the rights, the project clearly had a place in her heart. She did snag the rights from the singer’s granddaughter, after all. With everything in place, including Nora Ephron as the director-writer, it seemed the actress was on her way to yet another bout of awards nominations. Until 2012, that is, when the legendary rom-com pioneer Ephron passed away.

Now, thanks to good old Tiff, the geyser of hot goss that it is, news has surfaced that the project is back on the radar! During a press conference at Tiff, Witherspoon herself revealed that the search for a director was over. Far From Heaven and Velvet Goldmine director Todd Haynes is going to be behind the camera. He seems like a solid candidate, »

Toronto: Reese Witherspoon’s Peggy Lee Project Draws Todd Haynes

8 September 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Director Todd Haynes has come on board to develop Reese Witherspoon’s Peggy Lee biopic.

The actress disclosed Haynes’ attachment at the Toronto Film Festival, where two of her films — “Wild” and “The Good Lie” — are screening.

Witherspoon became involved with the Lee project in 2010 when it was set up at Fox 2000 with Nora Ephron writing and attached to direct. The project was put on hold after Ephron’s death in 2012.

Lee passed away in 2002 after a long career as a singer, songwriter, composer and actress. She’s best known for recording “Why Don’t You Do Right?” with Benny Goodman, “Fever” and “Is That All There Is?”

Witherspoon won an Oscar for portraying singer June Carter Cash in 2005’s “Walk the Line.”

Marc Platt, who teamed with Witherspoon on her “Legally Blonde” films, is producing. Ephron’s script was re-written by Doug Wright.

Off the Carpet: Best Actor and Best Actress make for a tale of two industries

8 September 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Look across the landscape of Best Actor Oscar contenders this year. Michael Keaton, Steve Carell, Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, Bill Murray, Timothy Spall, Chadwick Boseman, Kevin Costner, Ralph Fiennes, Jake Gyllenhaal, Tom Hardy, James McAvoy, Channing Tatum all seen and stumped for. Joaquin Phoenix, David Oyelowo, Brad Pitt, Jack O'Connell, Bradley Cooper, Oscar Isaac, Matthew McConaughey and Mark Wahlberg all looking for room on the other side. Gael García Bernal, Ellar Coltrane, Brendon Gleeson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Tommy Lee Jones, John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, Miles Teller all likely to find supporters besides. Now look at the Best Actress contenders… It seems an oft-repeated lament. The leading lady category always feels just wide enough to manage a healthy slate of nominees, while the fellas deal with shocked asides on Oscar nomination morning about Tom Hanks or some such somehow missing the cut. "It was just too competitive." But it never seems »

Price: DVD $29.99

Darwin meets Hitchcock in the true-crime tale The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came To Eden, a documentary portrait of a 1930s murder mystery that’s as strange and alluring as the famous archipelago itself.

A true-life murder mystery unspools in The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden

Fleeing conventional society, a Berlin doctor, Friedrich Ritter, and his younger mistress, the also married Dore Strauch, start a new life on uninhabited Floreana Island. But after the international press sensationalizes the exploits of the island’s “Adam and Eve”, others flock there—including a self-styled Swiss Family Robinson and a gun-toting Viennese Baroness and her two lovers. Things would never be the same.

To bring this incredible story to life, filmmakers Dayna Goldfine and Dan Geller (Ballets Russes) interweave newly unearthed home movies of the original settlers, footage of native flora and fauna, testimonies of modern day islanders, »
