Luca Guadagnino's 'Splash'-y Return

13 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

After debuting at last fall's Venice Film Festival, Luca Guadagnino's A Bigger Splash finally arrived stateside. It's another entry in the growing mass of festival titles taking their time to make their way to the Us, with last year's Cannes Palme d'Or winner Dheepan oh so quietly opening next week as well.

A few extra months' wait for Splash is an acceptable compromise consider the six years wait fans of Guadagnino's 2009 slice of divinity I Am Love have had to endure. This time, Guadagnino looks to trade in Love's breathless romanticism for a feverish chic, but upping the ante of the former film's sexual intrigue. It would be some kind of crime against the audience to have a cast like Tilda Swinton (Guadagnino's returning muse), Ralph Fiennes, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Dakota Johnson and not get a little randy.

But wouldn't you be willing to wait for summer to get »

Family Guy and Ted creator Seth MacFarlane is working on a live-action sci-fi series for Fox...

Given that Seth MacFarlane’s CV is split between animated televised successes such as Family Guy and live-action movies like Ted, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Mr MacFarlane is now plotting to jam those skillsets together and make a live-action TV series.

Fox has announced that MacFarlane is developing an as-yet-untitled live-action sci-fi show for the network. He's written the scripts, and will executive produce the series as well as starring in it.

Season 1 of the show will consist of 13 hour-long episodes, and will be set 300 years in the future. It’s all about the crew of the Orville, “a not-so-top-of-the-line exploratory ship in Earth’s interstellar Fleet”.

MacFarlane said in a statement, “I’ve wanted to do something like this show ever since I was a kid, »

But now he’s veering in the complete opposite direction, joining a promising new project involving some fantastic comedy […]

Cinema Gadfly – Episode 18 – Moon

2 May 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

My guest for this month is Patrick Gibson, and he’s joined me to discuss the film he chose for me, the 2009 science fiction drama film Moon. You can follow the show on Twitter @cinemagadfly.

Show notes:

This film was co-written and directed by the former Zowie Bowie, Duncan Jones It stars the delightful Sam Rockwell, with voice acting from the also delightful Kevin Spacey We recorded this episode right after the sad passing of Jones’ father, David Bowie I watched this film via a Blu-ray that was given to me by former guest of the show Jake Desaulniers The music was composed by Clint Mansell, who has also scored a bunch of Darren Aronofsky films I still maintain that Steve Jobs is the reason my internet was being flaky Daren Arinofsky isn’t Paul Thomas Anderson, thank goodness Mallrats cost $6 millon to make, whereas Clerks cost $27,575.

Scorsese Helms George Washington Film?

28 April 2016 11:49 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sorry Zack Snyder, looks like Martin Scorsese has beaten you to your dream project.

The "Goodfellas" and "The Departed" helmer is reportedly in early talks to direct the gritty George Washington biopic "The General" for Red Granite Pictures according to The Tracking Board.

Said to have a tone akin to "Unforgiven," the story centers around General George Washington, who must lead a dying army to fend off a band of brutal mercenaries during the Revolutionary War.

"Assassin's Creed" writers Adam Cooper and Bill Collage have penned the script while Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland are producing. Darren Aronofsky was previously attached to direct and produce through his Protozoa Pictures back in 2012 but is no longer attached.

Scorsese previously worked with Red Granite on "The Wolf of Wall Street", and his latest film "Silence" opens later this year. He remains attached to three long-gestating projects, most notably the film adaptation of »

A Deluge of Kennedys

28 April 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Murtada here. Within the next two years, there will be three movies about The Kennedys. They seem to be as fascinating to filmmakers as the British Royal family. Even less famous members of the family are now subjects of movies.

Diana (2013) was both a car crash and framed its story by a notorious car crash. Now it's time for the Kennedys' own notorious car crash. Announced this week is Chappaquiddick with Jason Clarke as Ted Kennedy. The film tell the story of 1969 tragic car accident that involved Ted and took the life of teacher and political campaigner Mary Jo Kopechne. How Ted handled the aftermath - leaving the scene, waiting hours to report it - led of course to the end of any presidential aspirations he might have had. The film will be directed by John Curran, who previously directed The Painted Veil (2006) and Tracks (2013).

Martin Scorsese linked with George Washington biopic

The General was being developed by Darren Aronofsky - but Martin Scorsese may direct the George Washington biopic instead...

Once he’s done and dusted with his new movie, Silence, director Martin Scorsese may jump aboard the planned biopic of George Washington.

Entitled The General, the movie had previously been set up in 2012 with Darren Aronofsky set to produce and direct. The project back then was described as “an Unforgiven-like tale”, that told the story of Washington leading his battered army against mercenaries during the Revolutionary War.

Darren Aronofsky eventually left the project, and it does appear to be Scorsese’s for the taking.

On the flip side, he’s got other projects he’s juggling, including a reunion with Robert De Niro in The Irishman, and The Devil In The White City, that would see him reteam with Leonardo DiCaprio again. It sounds like he just »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Reset’

25 April 2016 3:36 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Reset” is so gorgeously shot that it almost distracts attention away from the sheer inertia of its material. In detailing Benjamin Millepied’s 2015 efforts to stage his first show, “Clear, Loud, Bright, Forward,” as the Paris Opera Ballet’s new dance director — a post which he recently relinquished, to much speculation — directors Thierry Demaizière and Alban Teurlai don’t lack for access, as their documentary takes up intimate residence alongside its subject as he choreographs, plans and oversees rehearsals for his maiden production. Alas, despite Millepied’s paradigm-shifting intentions, there’s no drama to this story, only a wealth of visual splendor.

On the strength of his tenure as a principal dancer with the New York City Ballet (as well as his contributions to Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” whose star, Natalie Portman, he married in 2012), Millepied was hired to take over the reigns of the Paris Opera Ballet. It’s an illustrious, »

'Victoria' Director Sebastian Schipper To Helm 'Undeniable,' Produced By Darren Aronofsky

20 April 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

German filmmaker Sebastian Schipper made some major waves last year with "Victoria." Shot in one continuous take, it wasn't just a gimmicky movie, but an effective thriller in its own right, and marked the filmmaker as one to watch. Well, someone certainly took notice — Darren Aronofsky. And he's helping Schipper get his next movie off the ground. Cineuropa reports that Schipper will direct "Undeniable," an adaptation of the memoir "Denial" by Jessica Stern, with Aronofsky producing through his Protozoa Pictures banner. The book tells the story of how the author and her sister were raped as teenagers, and were initially met with doubts when they reported the crime to police. Over three decades later, she asked the police to complete the file on her case, and shared her experiences about the long lasting effects of trauma. Here's the book synopsis: One of the world’s foremost experts on terrorism and »

Darren Aronofsky Courts Michelle Pfeiffer And Domhnall Gleeson For Next Film

18 April 2016 3:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

.

As a filmmaker, Academy Award nominee Darren Aronofsky occupies a curious space in the cultural landscape. Highly respected in his artistry, he has earned himself a dedicated fandom, which anticipates each new project – although, in box office terms, his films are never guaranteed success. They always attract high levels of talent, though, and his next, as yet untitled movie is no exception – with Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem and Ed Harris reportedly already on board, and Michelle Pfeiffer and Domhnall Gleeson now in talks to join them.

As with the early word on every Aronofsky project – from Pi to Black Swan, and even Noah – details are vague, to say the least. What little plot information there is suggests that this film may be something of a return to the intimate nature of his earliest work, with the story focusing on “a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, »

Gleeson, Pfeiffer Join Aronofsky's Next

15 April 2016 9:15 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Domhnall Gleeson and Michelle Pfeiffer are set to join Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem in the new and currently untitled film from acclaimed filmmaker Darren Aronofsky that's set up at Paramount Pictures.

The story follows a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. The tone is completely unknown at this point, meaning the film could run the gamut from being either a talky dark comedy like "Carnage" to a disturbing and even gory home invasion film.

Ed Harris and Brian Gleeson also star in the project which will shoot this spring for a 2017 release. Aronofsky is set to write, direct and produce through his own Protozoa Pictures along with Scott Franklin and Ari Handel.

Pfeiffer + Aronofsky = !!!!!!!!!!!

15 April 2016 8:59 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Pfeiffer in Beat-Up Little SeagullJust so everyone knows, I am indeed still alive. After briefly passing out. I was on a flight when news broke that Michelle Pfeiffer had signed on to the cast of the new untitled Darren Aronofsky film due in 2017 with filming to start this June.

La Pfeiffer has been Mia from the movies in a significant way since White Oleander (2002) her last Oscar worthy performance (she has famously never won despite multiple breathtaking star turns)  and the last onscreen appearance without significant breaks thereafter. She flirted with a comeback in a brief flurry of activity around 2007-2008 (Stardust & Cheri being the highlights) but it's been relatively quiet since then. But no more? »
