What's Happening With 'Tron 3'?

17 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Remember 2010's "Tron Legacy?" Yeah, we do, too... Sort of. Well, it turns out that a follow-up is still in the works, at least according to its director, Joseph Kosinski. Those who fight for the users, listen up.

Speaking with Assignment X (via Digital Spy), Kosinski said that the project was seriously in development. "We're working on the story right now. Once we get a script we're all really happy with, we'll take it to the powers that be and see if we can go back to the Grid," the director told Assignment X. When pressed for plot specifics, he said, "I think we will pick [up] with where 'Tron Legacy' left off with Quorra in the real world and what does that mean and the possibilities it opens up for the next chapter. It's the relationship between the two of them that's the next step."

Feature Alex Westthorp 9 Apr 2014 - 07:00

In the next part of his series, Alex talks us through the film careers of the second and fourth Doctors, Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker...

Read Alex's retrospective on the film careers of William Hartnell and Jon Pertwee, here.

Like their fellow Time Lord actors, William Hartnell and Jon Pertwee, Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker also shared certain genres of film. Both appeared, before and after their time as the Doctor, in horror movies and both worked on Ray Harryhausen Sinbad films.

Patrick George Troughton was born in Mill Hill, London on March 25th 1920. He made his film debut aged 28 in the 1948 B-Movie The Escape. Troughton's was a very minor role. Among the better known cast was William Hartnell, though even Hartnell's role was small and the two didn't share any scenes together. From the late Forties, Troughton found more success on the small screen, »

Lisa Daniely obituary

25 February 2014 3:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

My friend Lisa Daniely, who has died aged 84, was a familiar face in the films of the 1950s and 60s. She also appeared on stage and continued working as an actor well into her late 70s.

She was born Elizabeth Bodington in Reading, Berkshire, to an English solicitor father and a French mother. She was educated in Paris, where she trained at the Sarah Bernhardt theatre, and made her film debut in 1950 at the age of 21 in the title role of Lilli Marlene. Her film-star looks were on the cover of Picturegoer the following year. Her notable films included High Jump (1959) with Richard Wyler (who also acted under the name Richard Stapley), The Lamp in Assassin Mews (1962) with Francis Matthews, Stranger in the House (1967) with James Mason and Geraldine Chaplin, and, perhaps most famously, Hindle Wakes (1952) with Leslie Dwyer.

On the stage she played Madame Ranevskaya in The Cherry Orchard, »

Alan Bridges obituary

Television director in the glory days of the BBC, who went on to make feature films

Alan Bridges, who has died aged 86, was a leading director during the glory days of the BBC, from the mid-60s to the early 70s. Today, whenever media pundits analyse the history of television drama, they wax lyrical about The Wednesday Play and its successor Play for Today, bemoaning the virtual disappearance of the single play.

By the time Bridges started working in the Wednesday Play slot, he was already one of the BBC's most experienced TV directors – he had directed excellent 10-part adaptations of two 19th-century classics, Great Expectations and Les Misérables (both in 1967) – but he relished the "right to fail" ethos at the BBC, enjoying working with exciting contemporary writers.

While continuing to have a distinguished television career into the 80s, adeptly moving from the popular to the experimental, from the modern to the classical, »

Trailers from Hell: Alan Spencer on Time Travel Romance 'Time After Time,' Starring Malcolm McDowell and Mary Steenburgen

8 January 2014 11:15 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Deja Vu All Over Again! continues at Trailers from Hell, with TV writer Alan Spencer introducing "Time After Time," Nicholas Meyer’s wonderfully inventive sci-fi pastiche about a time-traveling H.G. Wells and his search for Jack the Ripper in present-day San Francisco. A buoyant fantasy, nerve-wracking suspense film and one of the best romances of its decade. Malcolm McDowell, as far removed from Alex the Droog as you can get, plays the sweet-natured Wells and Mary Steenburgen is his beautiful, spacey soul-mate. With David Warner (terrifying) as the Ripper. George Pal would surely have approved. A movie that really does have something for everyone. »
