The Noteworthy: L.M. Kit Carson (1941-2014), The "Dying of the Light" Debacle, Polanski Makes "Macbeth"

21 October 2014 4:26 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

L.M. Kit Carson, the Texan film legend best known for David Holzman's Diary, has passed away at the age of 73.  For Filmmaker Magazine, Vadim Rizov gathers some valuable insight from Fabrice Aragno, the cinematographer of Jean-Luc Godard's Adieu au langage. Eric Hynes provides an excellent and authentic New Yorker take on Gangs of New York for Reverse Shot's Martin Scorsese Symposium. Above: we're disappointed to hear that Paul Schrader's latest film has been essentially taken out of his hands—in response the filmmaker has disowned the picture. For Film Comment, Violet Lucca interviews Ruben Östlund about his acclaimed film, Force majeure:

 "Lucca: Like your previous work, Force Majeure is intended to foster a philosophical debate about what human behavior means or implies. Do you envision that being more of an internal process, or do you want people to talk it out?

ÖStlund: Yeah, in a group. »

Sean Bean Boards The Martian

21 October 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

He’s been skewed by arrows in Middle Earth, beheaded in Westeros and drawn and quartered in medieval England, but do you know where Sean Bean hasn’t met a sticky end yet? That’s right – space. Alas, even the final frontier may end up as a resting place for the oft-killed actor now that he’s joined the cast of Ridley Scott’s The Martian.

Bean will reportedly play a Nasa flight director in the survival adventure, which was adapted from Andy Weir’s book of the same name by The Cabin in the Woods co-writer/director Drew Goddard. Though some of you may be wondering just how Bean’s character will wind up perishing given that he’s safely back on Earth, rest assured the actor will find a way. After all, he has a reputation to protect.

All jesting aside, word has it that, in a refreshing change of pace, »

Sean Bean Joins Ridley Scott's The Martian

21 October 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With Exodus: Gods and Kings hitting the big screen in November, Ridley Scott has turned his attention to his next movie, The Martian, based Andy Wier's 2012 e-book about an astronaut stranded on Mars after the first manned space mission to the Red Planet goes disastrously wrong. Matt Damon is taking the lead as stranded astronaut Mark Watney, with Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, Kristen Wiig, and Jessica Chastain providing support. Now this impressive cast has grown by one, with Sean Bean signing on the dotted line to appear in the movie, marking this as his third space tinged movie in a row after The Wachowski's Jupiter Rising and the Adam Sandler starring Pixels. No doubt the "Don't Kill Sean Bean" memes will be out in force as The Martian gets closer to its release date. The Martian is expected to hit U.S. cinemas on November 25th 2015, while taking a bow »
