John Crowley to Follow ‘Brooklyn’ with ‘The Goldfinch’; ‘Don Quixote’ Possibly Adds Willem Dafoe and Stellan Skarsgård

20 July 2016 12:12 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Combine the director of a beloved Best Picture nominee with a recent Pulitzer winner and you have… well, the results have yet to be seen, but Warner Bros. and Brett Ratner‘s RatPac Entertainment (what a vile name) are tapping Brooklyn helmer John Crowley for The Goldfinch, their adaptation of Donna Tartt‘s 2013 novel of loss, grief, violence, and redemption. [Deadline]

This might be the most natural choice among contemporary directors, though The Goldfinch has a much darker undertone than Crowley’s smash hit. Tartt’s epic kicks off with a terrorist attack (upon New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art) that spares 13-year-old Theodore Decker and takes his mother, with whom he stays connected through Carel Fabritius’ eponymous painting — an item he stole from the attack’s site. That work follows him through years and years of pain, up to and including an eventual redemption.

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote Reportedly Courting Willem Dafoe And Stellan Skarsgard

19 July 2016 8:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Not since 2013’s oddball sci-fi The Zero Theorem has the illustrious Terry Gilliam stepped behind the lens, but that’s all about to change very soon.

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, Gilliam’s own white whale, has finally started to display signs of tangible progress in recent months, a streak that can be traced back to the casting of the so-hot-right-now Adam Driver. Fast forward a few weeks and both Michael Palin and Olga Kurylenko have closed deals to star, and now production company Entre Chien & Loup have seemingly let slip that Willem Dafoe and Stellan Skarsgard are on the verge of signing along the dotted line.

No official statement to relay at this time, but it’s clear that Gilliam’s long-gestating project – one that has been retooled to focus on an arrogant publicist, who evokes old memories by returning to the village where he filmed his student project, »

It really seemed like an inevitability that no one was ready to face outside of Terry Gilliam: the long gestating “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” the cinematic mountain he’s stared down for years, would never be climbed. There’s been so many iterations of the film that have fallen apart it’s hard to keep track of […]

Willem Dafoe and Stellan Skarsgard join ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’

19 July 2016 12:05 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Willem Dafoe and Stellan Skarsgard have been cast in Terry Gilliam‘s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, joining Adam Driver, Michael Palin and Olga Kurylenko on the project, which will start shooting towards the end of the year.

The news comes to us from Entre Chien Et Loup via Den Of Geek, as it finally looks like the project will finally come to fruition for Gilliam, who has attempted to bring the story to the screen in the past, most notably with Johnny Depp in the lead role (a production that was documented in the superb documentary Lost In La Mancha).

This will be Gilliam’s eighth attempt at bringing the story to the screen. His original attempt was all of the way back in 1998.

The new version is said to be set in the modern day. Gilliam co-wrote the script with Tony Grisoni and the film’s budget »

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote casting update

18 July 2016 9:37 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Brendon Connelly Jul 19, 2016

Willem Dafoe and Stellan Skarsgard have been cast in Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote...

Though no announcement has yet been issued to the trades, there's now solid word on the casting of Willem Dafoe and Stellan Skarsgard in Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote coming right from the source: the website of one of the companies actually backing the production.

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is a modern-day story which Don Quixote appears to be alive and well and reliving the same story all over again, just with a slightly different supporting cast this time.

We know already that Adam Driver will be playing Toby Grossini, the lead character and Sancho Panza stand-in, and that Michael Palin has been cast as Quixote, the Man of La Mancha himself. Olga Kurylenko is onboard too, playing a role that was, I think, »

Norwegian Thriller In Order Of Disappearance Debuts Darkly Funny First Trailer

8 July 2016 8:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Long before Liam Neeson will spearhead an English-language reboot, Hans Petter Moland’s Norwegian thriller In Order Of Disappearance will make its North American bow late next month, and today brings forth the chilling, darkly funny first trailer.

Placing Stellan Skarsgård in the icy shoes of snowplow driver Nils Dickman – an Average Joe amongst Average Joes –  Moland’s intelligent, pulse-pounding feature has our unassuming hero uncover a devious crime ring whom he holds responsible for the devastating murder of his son.

First released in 2014, In Order of Disappearance has been doing the rounds across international circuits and will, finally, make its way onto these shores in August via Magnolia Pictures. Skarsgård headlines the drama, flanked by Bruno Ganz, Pål Sverre Hagen, Jakob Oftebro, and Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju.

Our exclusive poster reveal pegged Hans Petter Moland’s action-comedy as an unusual blend of Fargo and Death Wish. That »

Magnolia has debuted the official Us trailer for a Norwegian film called In Order of Disappearance, from director Hans Petter Moland. The film originally premiered two years ago, back in 2014, and is just now getting a Us release.

Stellan Skarsgård stars and he's so badass in this. The cast includes Bruno Ganz, Pål Sverre Hagen, Jakob Oftebro, and Kristofer Hivju.

Exclusive Poster For In Order Of Disappearance Sees Stellan Skarsgård Taking Aim

6 July 2016 6:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Scandinavia has long proven to be fertile ground for brooding thrillers across all types of media – be that books, movies or television. Perhaps it’s the sparse population and ensuing isolation that allows authors and creative thinkers to dream up dark scenarios for projects, but whatever the case, it’s served up the likes of Headhunters and Stieg Larsson’s beloved Millennium series – the same one the features The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – to name but a few.

When it comes to In Order Of Disappearance, though, Hans Petter Moland’s action flick takes the road less travelled, gunning down the route of black comedy as opposed to a chilling murder mystery. Stellan Skarsgård, Bruno Ganz, Pål Sverre Hagen, Jakob Oftebro, and Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju have all booked their place in Moland’s bloody romp, and below you’ll find an exclusive poster that we’re happy to be debuting, »

Posterized July 2016: ‘Ghostbusters,’ ‘Equals,’ ‘Star Trek Beyond,’ and More

5 July 2016 11:56 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” is a proverb whose simple existence proves the fact impressionable souls will do so without fail. This monthly column focuses on the film industry’s willingness to capitalize on this truth, releasing one-sheets to serve as not representations of what audiences are to expect, but as propaganda to fill seats. Oftentimes they fail miserably.

This month is the epitome of summer blockbuster season with a couple kids films, a couple attempts at old school epics, some comedies, some actioners, and a sparse few adult-oriented indies to provide a well-needed counter to the explosions and slapstick. We’re still inundated with sequels (four on this post alone) and reboots (two), but as long as we buy tickets they’ll continue coming — louder, brighter, and vapid.

So let’s try and give some love to the smaller films. Take the kids to a matinee »

Karlovy Vary Film Review: ‘A Date for Mad Mary’

4 July 2016 4:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Perhaps not the most original film you’ll see all year, but very possibly the most instantly lovable, first-time filmmaker Darren Thornton’s beautifully performed, warm yet melancholic “A Date for Mad Mary” proves that “Sing Street” director John Carney does not have the Irish monopoly on highly exportable rite-of-passage dramedies. And in Seána Kerslake’s performance as the eponymous Mary (“mad” being used in its semi-admiring, semi-cautionary Irish vernacular form) he may even have an ace that Carney’s ensemble picture lacks: a barnstorming central performance, full of light and shade, that should by rights be the breakthrough Kerslake has deserved since her debut in Kirsten Sheridan’s bafflingly underseen “Dollhouse.”

Seldom have the familiar beats of the transition-to-adulthood story felt more engaging, perhaps because Thornton knows his material inside out: Having directed the Yasmine Akram play “10 Dates for Mad Mary” for stage, he has now, together with his brother Colin, »

Review: Our Kind Of Traitor, Slick Yet Simple Spycraft

1 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Veteran screen adapter Hossein Amini (The Two Faces of January, Drive) teams up with famed author John le Carré for yet another big screen espionage thriller joint with Our Kind of Traitor. Le Carré, who serves as executive producer, brings his typical granular approach to Government and institutional betrayal his novels are famed for. The focus is on Dima (Stellan Skarsgård), a career criminal for the Russian mob who has decided to betray his comrades when he learns that his financial know-how of the business has put him and his family in the cross-hairs of Prince (Grigoriy Dobrygin) his ruthless leader. When a chance encounter in Morocco with the unhappily married British couple Perry and Gail (Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris) gives Dima the chance...

Our Kind Of Traitor – Review

30 June 2016 8:16 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

John le Carré incorporates many of the same ingredients in each of his literary recipes: espionage, intrigue, and corruption. How he uses these ingredients and a few others sprinkled in is what makes each of his dishes satisfying. Our Kind Of Traitor might be the author’s least complicated recipe. There are fewer players and even fewer entanglements than some of his recent film adaptations, such as A Most Wanted Man and the acclaimed Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. As a result, Our Kind Of Traitor might be the most easily digestible for those looking for a more straight-forward approach to his world of international crime.

Review: ‘Our Kind of Traitor’ Shows Why John le Carré and Hollywood Don’t Mix

30 June 2016 4:22 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When John le Carré’s name is attached to a movie or television series, you already know what to expect. An author whose firsthand experience in the intelligence world informs his work, the novelist has developed a singular approach to spy stories. The films and series based on his work have attracted sizable budgets and A-list casts despite the labyrinthine governmental entanglements and devastating, feel-bad endings that come with le Carré’s territory. But where some of those other projects managed to preserve the author’s grounded approach, “Our Kind of Traitor” represents a Hollywood pivot to a film that, while entertaining at points, dilutes le Carré’s potency.

The aforementioned star power here comes from Ewan McGregor, playing unassuming poetry professor Perry (introduced kissing and caressing a woman’s naked back, lest you think he lacks mainstream movie spy bona fides), who becomes an unlikely pawn in a cross-continent informational tug-of-war. »
