Bad Ideas: Films We’re Glad Never Got Made

4 July 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While we often lament some of the films that end up stuck in development Hell, never to become realized on the big screen, there are some films we should all be glad never came to fruition.  

Sometimes they don’t get it! We all know that the film industry is a business and they want to make money, but Hollywood doesn’t always realize that the best way to do that is to make a good film. Sometimes, Hollywood’s habit of taking a known property and stretching them out to absurd proportions proves that they just don’t get the point. Fortunately, there are times when someone recognizes a bad idea and puts on the brakes. Below is a list of 14 films where someone was smart enough to notice that they were making a pile of trash and threw in the towel.

2 July 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

In a decision that Hollywood has been waiting for months to hear, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals today threw the Black Swan intern case on its head by vacating an earlier judgment in favor of two interns who worked on the Darren Aronofsky-directed film. The hearing on the appeal of District Judge William Paley III’s ruling of 2-years ago was held on January 30 this year. The original 2011 lawsuit against Fox Searchlight set the stage for a slew of intern class actions… »

Watch: Michael Fassbender Plays ‘Steve Jobs’ In New Trailer For Oscar-Contender Co-Starring Kate Winslet & Seth Rogen

1 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For several years now, filmmaker Danny Boyle has found himself at the awards season table. The surprise hit “Slumdog Millionaire” swept the Oscars in 2008, and he was back at it with James Franco in 2010's “127 Hours.” Boyle took a break from serious drama in 2013 with the twisty heist/hypnotism caper “Trance.” That movie was originally set to star Michael Fassbender, but the actor dropped out. But it didn’t take long for him to reteam with Boyle, and he now leads the awards-bait drama with “Steve Jobs.” Read More: Watch: Danny Boyle & Darren Aronofsky Talk Directing, Moviemaking, & More In 20-Minute Video The project does, however, come with baggage.

Listen: 37-Minute Talk With Michael Haneke & Darren Aronofsky

26 June 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Way back in 2009 at The New York Film Festival, a drool worthy conversation took place between Michael Haneke (who was doing the rounds for "The White Ribbon") and Darren Aronofsky at Lincoln Center. If you weren't there, well, you missed it. Thankfully, the Film Society Of Lincoln Center has gone into the archives to dig up the talk and put it online, and needless to say, this is a must listen for any cinephile. Haneke is in the hot seat for the discussion and fields questions while Aronofsky and others probe the director about "The White Ribbon," in which a series of eerie calamities beset a small German village in the lead up to World War I. Haneke explains why he chose to keep many of the events in the film enigmatic. Read More: Michael Haneke Drops 'Flashmob,' Working On New Film Set In France “I try to construct »

Week in Review: Movie theater screens ‘Insidious’ over ‘Inside Out’, kids leave terrified

26 June 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

For those who have seen Inside Out, it’s a scary movie: the fear of moving away, of being unable to feel anything at all, of having your childhood memories that most defined you erased in the existential dilemma of growing up. Heavy stuff.

But it’s not quite a horror movie, and some now very unhappy kids got just that when they attended a screening of the film, only to find out that the theater had accidentally screened the horror movie Insidious: Chapter 3. Oh what’s the difference? The first five letters are the same!

The event occurred in Middletown, Ohio as reported by the city’s Journal-News, in which the writer quotes an angry parent who said she got her money back but already had her children scarred by the mistake. “Moore said images of children being tied up and murdered appeared on the screen, and the »

What happened to the Suspiria remake?

25 June 2015 3:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Three years ago, a remake of Dario Argento's Suspiria seemed to be ready to go ahead. So what happened to it? Its former director explains.

Visually and aurally sumptuous, Dario Argento's Suspiria was one of the most striking horror movies of its age. The soundtrack was cacophonous, the cinematography drenched in colour and often beautiful - even when Argento was spattering the screen with claret.

In 2008, director David Gordon Green risked the ire of horror fans everywhere when he revealed to MTV that he planned to remake Argento's nightmare classic. It could have been a starry affair, too, with Natalie Portman on board as producer and star. That incarnation of the movie appeared to fall apart, though, and Portman ultimately went on to make Black Swan with Darren Aronofsky - a film about a ballet dancer with more than a touch of Argento's delirious brand of storytelling running through it. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger Takes on Revenge Drama '478'

24 June 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger is starting to turn down the volume in his old age. After taking on the more dramatic role of a father dealing with the transformation of his zombie daughter in Maggie, he's ready to take on the slow burn revenge drama 478. Deadline reports that the film is written by Javier Gull&#243n, who penned the dark thriller Enemy starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

Arnold Schwarzenegger to Tackle More Dark Drama in Revenge Film 478

24 June 2015 7:29 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Terminator Genisys debut is right around the corner, but it looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger is interested in more character-driven material moving forward. According to Deadline, Schwarzenegger is going to jump into a film called 478 next. The script comes from Javier Gullon and is said to be a “dark” piece about a man who loses his wife and child in a plane crash. When the air traffic controller responsible for the incident is vilified for his mistake, he’s put into protective custody, but that doesn’t stop Schwarzenegger’s character from seeking vengeance. The Deadline article also highlights that this is not your typical revenge film. It’s “more subtle” and will let Schwarzenegger put the acting chops he showed off in Maggie to use. If you caught my review of Maggie, you know I wasn’t particularly into it to say the least, but Schwarzenegger did a solid »

Arnold Schwarzenegger To Star In Darren Aronofsky-Produced '478,' From The Writer Of 'Enemy'

24 June 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Arnold Schwarzenegger is cashing his standard blockbuster paycheck with "Terminator Genisys," he's been showing an eagerness to stretch his acting chops. While this spring's "Maggie" wasn't very good, he displayed a sensitivity that the characters he generally plays don't get to reveal. And now he's got another movie brewing that will trade explosions for emotions. Read More: Review: 'Maggie' With Arnold Schwarzenegger Doesn't Play Into The Usual Expectations Of The Zombie Movie Deadline reports that Schwarznegger will star in the drama "478," which has some interesting talent involved. Darren Aronofsky's Protozoa Pictures is producing the movie, that has a script from "Enemy" writer Javier Gullon, that follows a man's quest for revenge against an air traffic controller whose mistake cost the lives of his wife and child.

Schwarzenegger Gets Revenge In "478"

23 June 2015 8:53 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to star in "Enemy" scribe Javier Gullon's dark new thriller project "478" for Darren Aronofsky's Protozoa Pictures. Filming aims to begin this Fall.

Schwarzenegger plays a man whose wife and child die in a plane crash caused by an air traffic controller's screw-up. The controller is vilified for his mistake and placed into protective custody.

Schwarzenegger's character however cannot let it go, and is determined to seek vengeance. The path to revenge though is far from clear though with the movie said to be much more a subtle character piece than an action film.
