2015 Film Independent Spirit Award nominations announced: Birdman, Boyhood, Nightcrawler among leaders

14 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Film Independent Spirit Awards are back with their list of the 2015 nominations. Leading the pack is the existential comedy Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) with a whopping six nominations, including one for actor Michael Keaton and one for director Alejandro G. Iñárritu. Closely following with a solid five nominations are Boyhood, Nightcrawler and Selma.

Boyhood (read our review here) is Richard Linklater’s ultimate character study, which filmed over the course of a decade, creates a time-lapse examination like no other before it. The film follows six year old Texas boy Mason, played by Ellar Coltrane, through his childhood years as he transitions into the life of a young adult ready to take on college. Boyhood received nominations for best film, director, editor, supporting actor and actress. It is bold experiment in film and should prove a serious awards contender.

Nightcrawler (read our review here) marks Dan Gilroy’s directorial debut. »

James Gunn says Nebula is the Boba Fett of Guardians of the Galaxy

24 November 2014 12:11 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is out on DVD and Blu-ray today, and Yahoo! Movies caught up with director James Gunn during the press tour for the home-entertainment release, with Gunn taking a moment to discuss the villainous characters of the space opera – specifically, Karen Gillen’s Nebula, calling her “the Boba Fett of the film” and seemingly implying that we’ll be seeing plenty more of her in 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

“I have so many plans for Nebula, in my personal life, and… I love Nebula. I fell in love with the design of Nebula. I cast the role around that design. I fell in love with Karen [Gillan] as a person, who I love, and I love the character of Nebula…. To me, she’s the Boba Fett of the movie, she’s the one that you really dig, she’s the cool one that we need to get more of, »

John Leguizamo’s Pablo Escobar Project Headed for Puerto Rico Shoot

20 November 2014 7:39 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A trio of independent producers are backing Pablo Escobar biopic “El Patron” with plans to shoot in Puerto Rico next year.

Joseph Khouri of Raging Bull Entertainment and Martin Guigui and Dahlia Waingort of Sunset Pictures said the Escobar movie is part of their partnership to develop and package 20 films for production.

Khouri told Variety that John Leguizamo remains attached to star in “El Patron,” which had been set up last year as “The King of Cocaine” at Relativity Media but is no longer at that studio.

Escobar was murdered in Colombia in 1993. Benicio Del Toro portrays the drug lord in “Escobar: Paradise Lost,” which debuted two months ago at the Telluride and Toronto festivals and will be released by TWC-Radius in January.

Khouri, Guigui and Waingort are developing “Hit Man,” the story of music magnate Joe Isgro; a Lucky Luciano biopic based on Bobby Moresco’s script and “The Stone Pony, »

Marion Cotillard’s Curious Career

20 November 2014 7:24 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Seven years after winning an Oscar for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose (2007), Marion Cotillard could land a second nomination for her role in Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne’s Two Days, One Night (Deux jours, une nuit), which is Belgium’s Oscar submission. She was also in 2013 Cannes selection The Immigrant, which was released in May of this year. Since La Vie en Rose, Cotillard has mainly worked on small indie films both inside and outside of America, with the exception of Christopher Nolan‘s Inception (2010) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012).

Cotillard was introduced to acting at a young age — her father was a director and her mother was an actress — and began her career acting in a variety of French TV shows and films. Her first Hollywood role was in Tim Burton‘s Big Fish (2003). She appeared »

James Gunn reveals his second choice for Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy

19 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was a movie that turned Chris Pratt into a household name and mega star, but there was a chance that he wasn’t going to play Star Lord in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Although the Parks and Recreation star did eventually take the role, Gunn has revealed who his second choice to play the part was.

“Glenn [Howerton] came along a little bit later, but there was a good chance that, if I didn’t cast Chris, that I would’ve cast Glenn Howerton in the role,” Gunn told GQ journalist Drew Magary.

If you’re unaware of that name, Glenn Howerton is one of the stars of TV’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

What do you make of this second choice? Would he have made a better or worse Star Lord than Pratt?

Scorsese Plans "Cortes" Series For HBO

19 November 2014 6:26 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

HBO has announced that is developing "Cortes," a high-profile drama series about Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes who brought the Aztec empire to its knees.

Filmmaker Martin Scorsese is set to direct the pilot and executive produce the series alongside "Mississippi Burning" scribe Chris Gerolmo and actor Benicio Del Toro. Del Toro himself is said to be interested in starring as Cortes.

The series will have three leads, the other two being Mayan woman Malinche who helped Cortes, and Aztec leader Montezuma whom Cortes befriended and ultimately had executed.

The series will explore his legacy and actions which, whilst extending the power of the Spanish Empire and winning Mexico for Spain, also saw him committing mass murder and wiping out one of the most famous civilizations in history.

Laura Bickford, Rick Yorn and Emma Tillinger Koskoff will also executive produce.
