James McAvoy set to replace Joaquin Phoenix in M. Night Shyamalan’s new film

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James McAvoy (X-Men: Apocalypse) is in talks to take the lead role in the new supernatural thriller from director M. Night Shyamalan, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Initially it was reported that the new film would see Shyamalan reunite with his Signs star Joaquin Phoenix, but it seems that Phoenix has passed on the project, allowing McAvoy to step in. Reports suggest talks with the actor never got past discussions and no deal was made.

The new film will again be produced by Jason Blum, who collaborated with Shyamalan on The Visit, which has grossed over $53 million in the Us, the most for a horror this year. Plot details, as you would expect, are being kept firmly underwraps.

McAvoy can next be seen in Victor Frankenstein with Daniel Radcliffe before finally going bald in his third stint as Professor X in X-Men: Apocalypse next summer.

James McAvoy may be replacing Joaquin Phoenix for secret Shyamalan flick

2 October 2015 12:51 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

So much for Joaquin Phoenix and M. Night Shyamalan getting together once again to do another picture. Apparently those conversations were nothing more than that, and no deal was ever struck in order to make it a reality. However, James McAvoy is a pretty nice consolation prize, if you have to settle for your second choice. That looks to be the story, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with McAvoy in talks...

Hurricane Joaquin Phoenix Meme Goes Viral! Check Out the Hilarious Pics

2 October 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Joaquin Phoenix has been cast as the lead in yet another dark comedy. A meme featuring the three-time Oscar nominee went viral in anticipation of Hurricane Joaquin touching down in the U.S. And though the National Weather Service is now predicting that the hurricane will remain at sea as it heads north from the Bahamas, sparing the East Coast any major damage... That doesn't make the meme any less funny. One even parallels the storm's strength to the actor's physical transformation through the years in five hilarious photos, starting with Phoenix as a teen pining for the girl next door in Inventing the Abbots, increasing in intensity as Johnny Cash in 2005's Walk The Line and ending with the »

James McAvoy In Talks To Star In M. Night Shyamalan’s Next Movie

2 October 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

M. Night Shyamalan redeemed himself somewhat with The Visit last month, and now he’s already hard at work on his next – currently untitled – supernatural thriller. While his latest movie was made up of relative unknowns, the filmmaker can still attract A-List talent when he chooses, as it has been revealed today that James McAvoy (X-Men: Days of Future Past) is in talks to star.

The Scottish actor actually looks set to take the role which had been saved for Joaquin Phoenix (which would have reunited him and Shyamalan after 2002’s Signs), but The Hollywood Reporter reveals that no deal was ever made and things never got past the discussions phase between the two parties.

The plot of this supernatural thriller is unfortunately a closely guarded secret for the time being, as is who McAvoy will end up playing. He’ll next be seen in Victor Frankenstein alongside Daniel Radcliffe though, »

James McAvoy to Star in M. Night Shyamalan’s Next Movie

2 October 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

James McAvoy will star in M. Night Syamalan’s next project after a deal could not be made for Joaquin Phoenix to star.

Shyamalan would direct with Jason Blum on board to produce.

As with any Shyamalan project, plot details are under lock and key, but the project will likely include elements of the supernatural. Given Blum’s involvement, the project’s budget will probably be relatively small, which would be more on par with Shyamalan’s “The Visit,” which has overperformed at the box office since bowing in September, bringing in $53 million and counting in U.S. grosses on a budget of $5 million.

Marc Bienstock also produces, while Ashwin Rajan and Steven Schneider are on board as exec producers. Production is expected to start this November in Philadelphia. The film is currently not set up at a studio.

McAvoy can be seen next in Fox’s “Victor Frankenstein” as the iconic doctor. »

James McAvoy Replaces Joaquin Phoenix In M. Night Shyamalan Thriller

2 October 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Say what you will about M. Night Shyamalan, but throughout his career — minus his recent low-budget "The Visit," and failure-on-all-fronts "The Last Airbender" — he's had a knack for landing big actors for his movies, and with some, collaborating on multiple films. In fact, Joaquin Phoenix, who appeared in "Signs" and "The Village," was lining up a third movie with Shyamalan, but it looks like that hasn't worked out. (And apparently, a deal was never made). Read More: Review: M. Night Shayamalan Makes A Comeback With Found Footage Horror 'The Visit' THR reports that James McAvoy, certainly no slouch himself, has replaced Phoenix in the untitled film. Plot details are under wraps about the project in development over at Blumhouse Productions, which has grossed $67 million worldwide with "The Visit." On paper, that's not great, and the lowest global figure in the director's career. But considering it cost next to nothing, »

Joaquin Phoenix Movies to Stream During Hurricane Joaquin

2 October 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This weekend, the fast-developing Hurricane Joaquin is set to hit land, stranding everyone (okay, fine, just East Coasters) indoors. Maybe Joaquin will come and go with little incident, maybe it will devastate the Eastern Seaboard irreparably. Who can say? Literally nobody knows what will happen; the science is inconclusive. But just in case you prefer that your hurricane weekends have a theme (ooh), here are some Joaquin Phoenix movies to watch, corresponding to storm severity.Category 1If the hurricane ends up being more of a light drizzle and a minor inconvenience, watch Spike Jonze's Her. Because, let’s be real, here’s what you’ll probably be doing if you’re stuck inside: Gchatting with your friends. Or maybe you’ll just be refreshing social media, envious of all the fun being had by people outside the storm’s range. The point is: Your devices are gonna make you »

Joaquin Phoenix Jokes Flood the Internet as East Coast Preps for Hurricane

2 October 2015 7:27 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The second "Joaquin" was revealed as the name of the hurricane that may or may not hit the East Coast this weekend, you knew what the Internet had to do: It had to blame actor Joaquin Phoenix and make memes about his destructive path. There was no other choice.

Perhaps the best reaction is this map using various Joaquin roles to demonstrate the potential growth of the storm from normal and tame in the south to wild and out of control further up the coast:

Here's another good one, referencing Joaquin's brief, and odd, exit from acting: View post on imgur.com

Others stuck to just tweeting clever things like this:

So what you're telling me is that Joaquin Phoenix is so committed to his new role as a storm that he's actually become a hurricane?

Q&A: Just Jim director Craig Roberts

Joshua Gill reports on a Q&A with Just Jim director Craig Roberts

Having broken out of acting with Submarine and also appearing in a number of other films since then, with this being your first full length feature can you tell us exactly how you came to make Just Jim? It’s an incredibly low-budget film you got off the ground a couple of years ago, is that correct?

Craig Roberts: Yeah it was a low-budget film. It was a £300,000 film we made as part of a scheme called cinematic, a company that picks three directors giving them £300,000 pounds to make a film. I heard about it five days before the deadline and wrote a script that made no sense, which seems to make less sense now.

Was there a certain amount of improvisation that went into the film?

Cr: No, actually. It does make sense. Hopefully. It makes sense to me, »

Nyff ’15: ‘The Lobster’ locates emotional truth in absurdity

27 September 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Lobster

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos

Yorgos Lanthimos and Efthymis Filippou

Ireland / UK / Greece / France / Netherlands. 2015

Colin Farrell, donning a rather “Joaquin Phoenix in Her” disposition and attire, sits on a couch, facing away from his presumed wife as she tells him the details of the man for whom she’s leaving. His responses are curt, wounded. Every word sounds like it’s dripping with phlegm. And soon enough, he’s taken away to a hotel, his fate hanging in the balance. Farrell is sent off to a hotel where he, and the people there, have 45 days to find a mate. Should they not fall in love before the time is up, they will be turned into the animal of their choice.

Yorgos Lanthimos’s film has a duality to it: it can exist as a microcosm to discuss the structural oppressiveness of (primarily) heteronormative couplings and the possibly equally »
