Indie Filmmakers, Fear and Procrastination

11 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Daniel J. Harris on indie filmmakers, fear and procrastination…

Every aspiring filmmaker on the planet thinks that they have a great idea, great script, a unique story and way of telling it that engages audiences. Otherwise – why would we bother? You must have belief in your own ability – right?

Well, yes and no. In order to give up everything and burn all other bridges to pursue a career as a filmmaker you need to have the minerals – to quote Guy Ritchie’s Snatch. But, as artists we’re insecure and often fragile. Sometimes we don’t want to let go of our little story, or let too many people hear about it for fear of ridicule or rejection. We tell ourselves it’s a great story and it’ll make a great film. But…. Maybe it needs a little more work. Or perhaps… the time isn’t right. Or maybe »

Red Sonja reboot gets new screenwriter

27 February 2015 7:47 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2008, director Robert Rodriguez had plans for a remake of 80s actioner Red Sonja. The project, which was to star his then-girlfriend Rose McGowan (Planet Terror), was announced at Comic Con and Rodriguez even went so far as to release a teaser poster with McGowan, before the project fell apart.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Sonja won’t die, and has been resuscitated over at Nu Image and Millennium Films, who have reportedly set screenwriter Christopher Cosmos to pen the latest version of the script. Cosmos sold his first screenplay, The Fall, in 2012. While no director or actors have been linked, it’s safe to say that the studio believe the film has legs and look set to get the ball rolling very soon.

Do you think a remake of Red Sonja is a good idea? Who do you think could play the title role? As always, eave »

The Red Sonja Movie Gets A New Writer

27 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Looks like we'll be getting that Red Sonja movie at some stage after all. The Robert E. Howard-created warrior (though it was actually Roy Thomas who revamped her for Marvel's Conan comics) was already the subject of a movie from director Richard Fleischer back in 1985 with Brigitte Nielsen in the title role, and since that there have been a couple of attempts at a reboot -- most notably Robert Rodriguez's version which would have starred his then girlfriend Rose McGowan, and very nearly got off the ground. Then back in 2011 Simon West actually signed on to helm a Red Sonja movie (possibly starring Amber Heard) which would have tied into Marcus Nispel's Conan The Barbarian remake, but obviously that wasn't to be either. Now it seems with Arnold Schwarzenegger set to crush his enemies as Conan once again, Nu Image feel it's time to give Sonja another »

Red Sonja is Happening Again

27 February 2015 2:20 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

About seven years ago, director Robert Rodriguez announced that he was making a "Red Sonja" movie that would star his then-girlfriend Rose McGowan. That film never happened, but now comes word that a different version may still make it to the big screen. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Nu Image/Millennium Films have hired Christopher Cosmos to write the script. Cosmos has written anything before that has gone into development, but sold one of his script (called "The Fall") back in 2012. No director or actors are attached at this point. Stay tuned. »

Red Sonja reboot has new writer

26 February 2015 10:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It looks like the remake of Red Sonja is active again, as a screenwriter boards the project...

A reboot/remake we thought had fallen firmly off the radar, it looks like the plans to bring Red Sonja back to the screen are active after all. The project has been on the slate at Nu Image/Millennium Films for a while now, and it's now hired a new writer to pen a script for the film.

The new Red Sonja, therefore, is being written by Christopher Cosmos, based of course on the work of Robert E Howard and Roy Thomas. At the moment, there's no director or star attached.

The closest a new take on Red Sonja got to the screen of late was when Robert Rodriguez was circling the project, with Rose McGowan mooted to star. Megan Fox had been linked at one point, too. But right now, the plan »

'Red Sonja' Moves Forward with a New Writer

26 February 2015 5:35 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After several years of delays without any significant movement, Nu Image/Millennium Films is finally moving forward with their Red Sonja movie, hiring screenwriter Christopher Cosmos to handle scripting duties. No details were given regarding the new writer's take on the project, which is based on the character created by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith for Marvel, which was loosely based on the character Red Sonya of Rogatino in Conan the Barbarian creator Robert E. Howard's 1934 short story .

The project has been in the works for nearly a decade, with Robert Rodriguez initially developing Red Sonja as a starring vehicle for his girlfriend at the time, actress Rose McGowan. Douglas Aarniokoski (Nurse 3D) was also attached to direct at one point, but he is no longer involved as well. The last we heard about the project was back in 2011, when producer Avi Lerner revealed that Amber Heard was being »

Red Sonja Prepares For Action Again

26 February 2015 4:18 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

She's been wandering in the wilderness for a good few years, but Red Sonja has just returned to her previous home at studio Millennium / Nu Image. Development has started over on a new Sonja movie, with up-and-coming writer Christopher Cosmos set to work on the screenplay.Sonja, is sort of a Robert E. Howard creation like Conan The Barbarian, but actually has more to do with Roy Thomas' Conan comics for Marvel. Howard's Red Sonya of Rogatino doesn't inhabit the same world or time period as Conan and doesn't wear a chain-mail bikini; it was Thomas that revamped her as the amazon sword-maiden we now recognise. She was previously embodied onscreen by Brigitte Nielsen in 1985, with Arnold Schwarzenegger also on-hand as the all-but Conan Prince Kalidor. Twenty-odd years later, Sonja reared her crimson head again, in a projected film that was to star Rose McGowan, with Robert Rodriguez producing and »

What Happened When Kevin Smith Showed Clerks 2 To Quentin Tarantino

25 February 2015 11:24 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Writer/director Kevin Smith and Quentin Tarantino came up around the same time, with both Smith releasing Clerks and Tarantino releasing Pulp Fiction, thanks to the help of a little-known man (at that time) named Harvey Weinstein. While the two filmmakers have since gone in entirely different directions as far as their careers go, they both made defining films right out of the gates and subsequently became buddies along the way. Years later, when Smith made Clerks II in 2006, he decided to screen the film for his buddies Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez to gather some feedback, prior its release. What did his good friends have to say about his resulting film? Mostly good things. Tarantino, as animated and passionate as ever, wasted no time getting the conversation started by telling Smith where he felt his comedy sequel really got its wheels going. Smith, nervous and even arguably a bit insecure, »

Lady Gaga To Have A Recurring Role In FX’s American Horror Story Season 5

25 February 2015 9:06 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After wowing audiences worldwide with her performance at last weekend’s Academy Awards show, Emmy award-winning artist and songwriter Lady Gaga has inked a deal to star in the fifth season of FX’s beloved drama, American Horror Story.

Taking to Twitter, the songstress posted an appropriately creepy clip announcing her role, and that the upcoming series will be titled “Hotel.”

Make your reservation now. #GagaAHSHotel https://t.co/o9ixi5TaFy

Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) February 25, 2015

While co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk remained coy on the specifics of the role, today’s news means that Lady Gaga — aka Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta — is the first talent to commit to the upcoming season. Ahs will serve as the first regular TV role for the pop icon, and her casting is no doubt a major coup for Murphy, Falchuck and FX for one of their flagship series.

R-Rated ‘Power/Rangers’ with Katee Sackhoff & James Van Der Beek takes ‘fan film’ to a new level

24 February 2015 10:09 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Updated: Hollywood’s habit of rebooting campy old properties into “dark” and “gritty”, Nolan-esque movies has grown tiring for a long time. No material is sacred, and no material is too ridiculous to be unironically rehashed.

One of the lesser titles on that long list of remakes are the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, a horribly silly ’90s staple that by 2016 when the official Lionsgate movie is released will be 20 years removed from when the original show went off air.

Joseph Kahn’s short film Power/Rangers isn’t that.

Starring Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) and James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek) in Kahn’s “fan film”, one that doesn’t “reboot” the old property but extends its story threads to their natural, grim and bloody conclusion, Power/Rangers is an intense and dense fan story that takes fan filmmaking to a new level.

Film Independent Spirit Awards 2015 Live-Blog

21 February 2015 1:55 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HitFix Award Gurus Kris Tapley and Greg Ellwood are both attending Saturday's Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21) afternoon in Santa Monica and they left me to handle HitFix's Independent Spirit Awards Winners & Losers list.  And once I'm watching Saturday's show, I might as well be live-blogging Saturday's show as preparation for Sunday's Oscars live-blog, especially since is the last time that "Birdman" and "Boyhood" will be going head-to-head for Best Picture (along with "Selma" and "Whiplash") before the Academy Awards. So follow along and say "Hi" in the comments below... And remember that Saturday's show, hosted by Kristen Bell and Fred Armisen, is airing live on IFC, not that obnoxious tape-delayed thing they used to do! 1:50 p.m. Pt. The show hasn't started, but if you're following the Winners list, you know that "Birdman" has already won for for cinematography, while "Whiplash" won for editing, both results I can accept. »

Watch: Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez Watch 'Clerks 2' & Give Advice To Kevin Smith

20 February 2015 2:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

1994 saw two groundbreaking movies arrive: Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" and Kevin Smith's "Clerks." The films couldn't be more different — one was a star-studded, sprawling crime flick, while the other was a small comedy made on credit cards and starred a bunch of nobodies. Still, they both had a couple of things in common: a unique voice and the support of Harvey Weinstein. It's no surprise that Smith and Tarantino crossed paths, and become buds, but you might not know they've kept in touch in the years since. A dozen years after the original, Smith returned with "Clerks II," and understandably the director felt some pressure. So he screened the movie for his pals Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez to get some advice. The result was captured on camera and became a DVD extra (with Reddit digging it up recently). It's an interesting watch, not necessarily for what's discussed, but »

Exclusive: Watch Francis Ford Coppola Talk to Robert Rodriguez About "The Things They Fire You For"

17 February 2015 7:37 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Even if the only movies that Francis Ford Coppola ever made were the three Godfather films, he'd still be a cinematic legend. But he didn't just stop there: The Conversation, The Outsiders, Rumble Fish, Dracula, Apocalypse Now. The list goes on and on. He is, simply put, one of the Greats. That's why Coppola is such a welcome choice for The Director's Chair, a fantastic ongoing series on El Rey Network where Robert Rodriguez chats candidly with filmmakers about the entirety of their careers. In the past he's hosted Guillermo del Toro, Quentin Tarantino and John Carpenter, and they've all resulted in very worthwhile conversations about the realities of being a working artist in Hollywood. Speaking of that, we've got a clip from the upcoming The...
