Warner Bros. Pictures’ Next Godzilla Film And Tag Movie Begin Production

22 June 2017 5:08 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Following the global success of 2014’s “Godzilla” and this year’s “Kong: Skull Island,” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse: an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.

The film, which began principal photography on June 19, is being directed by Michael Dougherty (“Krampus”), and stars Oscar nominees Vera Farmiga (“Up in the Air,” “The Conjuring” films), and Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai”) and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), both reprising their “Godzilla” roles; Kyle Chandler (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Manchester by the Sea”); Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”) in her feature film debut; Bradley Whitford (“Get Out”); Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”); Charles Dance (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”); O’Shea Jackson Jr. (“Straight Outta Compton”); Aisha Hinds (“Star Trek Into Darkness”); and Golden Globe nominee Zhang Ziyi (“Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”).

The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.

Dougherty directs from a script he wrote with Zach Shields. The film is being produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Brian Rogers and Thomas Tull, with Barry H. Waldman, Zach Shields, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira serving as executive producers and Alexandra Mendes co-producing for Legendary.

Behind the scenes, Dougherty’s creative team includes director of photography Lawrence Sher, whose past credits include “War Dogs” and “Godzilla,” for which he handled additional photography; production designer Scott Chambliss (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Star Trek Into Darkness”); editor Roger Barton (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” the “Transformers” films); costume designer Louise Migenbach (the “X-Men” and “Hangover” films); and Oscar-winning VFX supervisor Guillaume Rocheron (“Godzilla,” “Ghost in the Shell,” and part of the Oscar-winning team behind “Life of Pi ”).

Filming is taking place mainly in Atlanta, Georgia. A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, the film is currently scheduled for release in March 2019, and will be distributed in 3D and 2D and in select IMAX theaters by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, except in Japan, where it will be distributed by Toho Co., Ltd.

Meanwhile, Tag! You’re It!

Production begins this week on location in Atlanta for the new comedy “Tag,” directed by Jeff Tomsic (Comedy Central’s “Broad City”) for New Line Cinema. The film’s starring ensemble cast is led by Ed Helms (The “Hangover” movies, “We’re the Millers”), Jake Johnson (TV’s “New Girl”), and Hannibal Buress (“Neighbors”), with Jon Hamm (“Baby Driver,” TV’s “Mad Men”) and Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Hurt Locker, “The Town”).

For one month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry “You’re It!” This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming…and he’s ready. Based on a true story, “Tag” shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing.

The film also stars Annabelle Wallis (“The Mummy”), Rashida Jones (TV’s “Parks and Recreation”), Isla Fisher (“Now You See Me”) and Leslie Bibb (“Iron Man 2”).

Tomsic directs from a screenplay written by Mark Steilen (TV’s “Mozart in the Jungle”) and Rob McKittrick (“Waiting”), based on the Wall Street Journal article entitled “It Takes Planning, Caution to Avoid Being It.” The film is produced by Todd Garner, Mark Steilen and Sean Robins, with Hans Ritter serving as executive producer. The creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Larry Blanford, editor Josh Crockett, production designer David Sandefur, and costume designer Denise Wingate.

Tag” is set for a June 29, 2018, release.

Guest Post: How a Short I Wrote Ended Up Being Directed by Robin Wright and Premiering at Cannes

16 May 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

The Dark of Night

Guest Post by Denise Meyers

I am the antithesis of what a successful screenwriter looks like: I am 57, female, and live in the fly-over zone.

I am also a great one for beating the odds, because on May 18, 2017, the short film I wrote, “The Dark of Night,” directed by Robin Wright and starring Leslie Bibb and Sam Rockwell, will make its debut at the Cannes Film Festival, opening for the Cannes Classics film block and the digitally remastered version of 1980 Palme d’Or winner “All That Jazz.”

So how in the hell did a dame from North Carolina get an A-list actress like Robin Wright to direct a 10-minute film without an agent or a manager, but with an outstanding cast and 80 crew members from “House of Cards?”

That’s a good question.

I started my career in the film industry in 1982 as an assistant to Jody Scott-Fox, a motion picture literary agent. After 12 years I managed to work my way to the middle as an assistant to a producer, then became a story analyst for several independent film companies.

With the dream of a career in film always just out of reach, I finally gave up, packed my bags and moved to Utah where I became the top-selling gourd artist in the nation. Odd transition, I know, but where I failed miserably in the film industry, I killed in the art business. My work sold for between $500 and $25,000, and I was in top galleries and magazines and on TV.

Then the economy crashed and so did my business. That’s when “the dream that wouldn’t die” reared its head again and I started writing with a vengeance.

“Ride the Wind,” a script I wrote about Jamaican-American motorcycle legend Bessie Stringfield, was selected as an Athena List winner in 2016, and “Lucky 13,” my script about the Women’s Airforce Service Pilots, was an Athena Finalist. The Athena List was founded by Melissa Silverstein and Kathryn Kolbert as the answer to The Black List — the predominately male online script service — to give writers like myself the same chance men have to get their work in front of the people who can help get it made.

Scriptd founder Denise Hewett, a force of nature in her own right, gave “Lucky 13” to Beau Gordon, who used to work for Kevin Spacey. Beau passed it along to Nini Le Huynh, Robin Wright’s assistant, and an amazing actress in her own right.

I sent Nini “The Dark of Night,” a short script I’d written that won Table Read My Screenplay Austin in 2015, as a project for Nini to star in. Not long after, she called to ask if I would mind having a small crew from “House of Cards” produce the film. Sure, I thought. And pinch me while you are at it.

Then it got better. A lot better. Robin Wright read the script and wanted to direct it.

Before we knew it, 80 crew members signed onto the project: Dave Dunlap, the Director of Photography, Jessica Wenger McPhail, the costume designer, Alphonso Carrion, the editor, Todd Halvern, the assistant Ad, Sharif Salama, the Upm, Cassandra McCarthy, Kara Tabor, Eric Goserud, and dozens of others.

We shot last December in Baltimore on the same set Barry Levinson used for the classic film “Diner.” The production design department did an outstanding job of turning an iconic restaurant into a 1930s film noir dream, and we shot the film in black and white. John Garfield and Lana Turner should have had it so good.

Nothing in life prepares you to walk the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, just like nothing prepares you to have Robin Wright direct a film you wrote as an exercise in getting out of your own head.

I still live in fly-over zone, and I don’t have an agent, but it’s okay. Because for the rest of my life, I will know I defied the odds and accomplished the impossible.

Not too bad for a 57-year-old screenwriter from North Carolina, wouldn’t you say?

In February 2017 Denise Meyers was named the winner of the Atlanta Film Festival Screenplay competition. In February 2016 she was an Athena List winner at the Athena Film Festival in New York. She is the only writer in the six-year history of the Athena Film to have two screenplays make it to the finals, “Ride the Wind: The Bessie Stringfield Story,” and “Lucky 13.” “Lucky 13” was a Nashville Film Festival finalist and placed in the top 15 percent of scripts submitted to the Nicholl fellowships. Meyers is a finalist for the Seriesfest Female Initiative for a limited series TV pilot about the all-girl bands of WWII. She recently completed “Truth Against the World,” a pilot based on the “The Dark of Night.”
