McTiernan Slams "Mad Max," Superhero Films

12 July 2016 9:07 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In the late 1980s to early 1990s, filmmaker John McTiernan unleashed a trio of films in a row that are still considered formative films of the Hollywood action genre - primal but smart blockbusters which changed how those kind of movies were made.

Those films were "Predator," "Die Hard" and "The Hunt For Red October". McTiernan has had a few success stories since then, most notably "Die Hard with a Vengeance" and his "The Thomas Crown Affair" remake, but otherwise has yet to be able to recapture that elusive spark - making headlines more for legal woes than anything in recent years.

Even so, McTiernan remains an Academy member with strong opinions and has unleashed those opinions in a new interview with Premiere (via The Playlist) where he offers both the superhero genre and George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road" some harsh words. Though he says he likes the first "Mad Max, »

It Came From The Tube: Tales From The Crypt (1989 – 1996)

3 July 2016 9:50 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Hello, Boils and Ghouls” was a typical opening salvo from The Crypt Keeper, the wraparound host (and animatronic cadaver) of HBO’s inventive, creepy and more often than not, mordantly funny salute to the EC Comics of yesteryear, Tales from the Crypt (1989 – 1996). Throughout seven seasons, viewers were subjected to as much gore, nudity, and twisted morality as we could handle. God (or his underworld counterpart) bless premium cable.

Tales ran from June 10th, 1989 to July 19th, 1996, for a grand total of 93 episodes. That’s a lot of grue to ingest, and until ratings started to slip by Season Six, horror fans found it easy to lap up. And as with any anthology series, mileage varies and quality flickers to and fro – but Tales from the Crypt’s success is anchored in the very fact that it was allowed to live, and thrive, for as long as it did.

John Cusack: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

20 June 2016 3:53 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




John Cusack has made 17 films in four years. We've found the ones that have gone all-but straight to DVD and watched them...

John Cusack is a bit of a Hollywood oddity. There’s no pattern to the type of movie he will choose to do, so he’s always kept us on our toes. Sure, he’ll make a dumb action movie, but that will often afford him the chance to make a few smaller gambles later on. Up until the last few years he’s played the system very well, but recently his ethic appears to have, um, waned? A little?

Since the heady days of Say Anything and Sixteen Candles he’s come to represent a sort of slightly weird-looking, awkwardly charming, offbeat everyman that men aged 18-49 can look at and go 'me'” - which is fine. There’s a place for that, as »

Shane Black Offers New "Predator" Details

9 June 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Director Shane Black and longtime producer Joel Silver are continuing the press tour for "The Nice Guys" overseas this week, the pair engaging in a podcast Q&A with Empire where Black dropped surprising new information about his next project - "The Predator".

We know the film will be a continuation of the "Predator" franchise, but also a minor refresh of it at the same time - trying to make it more mass appealing and doing it with much bigger budget. One question has been about the involvement of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the film with rumors he would reprise the role of Dutch from the first movie.

Even if he did return, how extensive that role would be is another key question to be answered. Either way it looks like he won't be the leading character as Black said in the podcast, also taking the time to explain why he's »

The Good, The Bad & The Badass: Sam Neill

Sam Neill Who doesn’t respect Sam Neill? On the merits of Jurassic Park alone, his big-screen immortality is assured, but for my money Neill could – and should – have been a household name long before... Read More »

Exclusive interview with The Nice Guys star Angourie Rice

5 June 2016 12:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Shane Black’s new film The Nice Guys now in UK cinemas [read our review here], Flickering Myth’s Scott J. Davis sat down with Hollywood newcomer Angourie Rice to talk about the film, auditioning with Ryan Gosling and working with fellow Aussie Russell Crowe.

Rice has received rave reviews (and rightly so) for her performance in the film where she stars as Holly March, the teenage daughter of Ryan Gosling’s Holland. Fresh off the plane from Austrailia, Rice had not read any of the early reviews for the film and said that the whole experience of promoting the film has been pretty hectic: “It’s been crazy! I’ve found myself saying crazy a lot in the past couple of weeks. I didn’t expect this to happen and didn’t think I’d get the role – I’m pleased that I did but this is an environment that is so »

Logan’s Run: new writer joins the remake

1 June 2016 10:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Ryan Condal, showrunner of the TV show Colony, is the new writer on the Logan's Run remake...

The last we heard with regards the plans to bring Logan’s Run back to the screen in a remake was that X-Men scribe Simon Kinberg was on board the movie. This is a remake that’s been in the works for a long time now, and Kinberg had penned a treatment for the film, and was stepping aboard as a producer (along with Joel Silver). this seemed to grease the proverbial wheels a little.

Now, a new writer has been hired, with the job of fleshing Kinberg’s treatment out into a full screenplay.

Ryan Condal, the co-creator and showrunner of the TV show Colony, is the man who’s landed the job. He’s also recently been working, along with Carlton Cuse, on rewriting the planned Rampage movie, »

"Logan's Run" Remake Scores A New Scribe

1 June 2016 3:04 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The long in the works remake of pulp sci-fi classic "Logan's Run" us back on track with "Colony" showrunner Ryan Condal to pen a new script based on a treatment by "X-Men Apocalypse" co-writer Simon Kinberg.

A new adaptation of the 1967 novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, the story is set in a future society where citizens are euthanised when reaching their 21st birthday. Those who refuse and try to escape to a rumored refuge called Sanctuary are chased down and executed by agents called 'sandmen'.

The action follows Logan-5, a sandman who upon turning 21 decides to go out on a high note by locating and dismantling Sanctuary - until he becomes converted to that cause. Kinberg, famed film producer Joel Silver and "The Flash" TV series producer Greg Berlanti will all produce the film which has been in the works for nearly two decades and has »

Logan’s Run Remake Elects Colony Writer Ryan Condal To Fine-Tune Script

1 June 2016 2:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. is beginning to make serious headway on its redo of Logan’s Run, the long-gestating remake that went dark soon after appointing Fox producer Simon Kinberg to spearhead the screenplay in mid-2015.

Helping to steer the project back on course, and effectively allaying fears that the modern retelling had slipped into development hell, is Colony co-creator and showrunner Ryan Condal, who is now on board to build upon the foundation laid out by Kinberg and flesh out his treatment into a feature-ready script. Joel Silver and DC television universe alum Greg Berlanti remain attached to produce.

Circling back to William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson’s seminal novel from 1967, Warner’s long-gestating remake of Logan’s Run has been held up as a fresh take on the source material, rather than a simple rehash of the movie adaptation of the same name from ’76. As a result, it »

'Logan's Run' Remake Gets a Writer

1 June 2016 11:24 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Warner Bros. has been hard at work on a Logan's Run remake for decades (literally). Now, it sounds like the production may finally get back on track. According to Deadline, the studio has tapped Colony creator/showrunner Ryan Condal to write a new script based on the treatment written by X-men: Apocalypse co-writer/producer Simon Kinberg. Kinberg will also be producing the project alongside Joel Silver and DC's Arrow-verse overlord Greg Berlanti

Logan's Run will be a new take on the 1967 novel (written by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson), which was last adapted to the big screen in the 1976 Michale York film of the same name. As it's a new take on the actual source material, don't expect it to have a whole lot in common with the 1970s counterpart.

For those unfamiliar, Logan's Run takes place in a dystopian society where its citizens are executed when they turn 21. However, »

'Logan's Run': Sci-fi reboot is back on, lands 'Colony' creator to write script

1 June 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If it had taken much longer to get this reboot going, the sandmen might have come after it. After upwards of 20 years in development and redevelopment, Logan’s Run is back on again. Deadline is reporting that the remake of the 1976 movie has added Ryan Condal (Colony) to write the script. For those unfamiliar, Logan’s Run is a cult sci-fi film in which people who reach 30 are killed by “sandmen” as a way to control the population. When Logan 5 (Michael York), a sandman, finds out that he’s soon to be “controlled,” he runs. The movie also featured Farrah Fawcett-Majors and Peter Ustinov. The Oscar-winning flick (Special Achievements in Visual Effects) grossed an inflation adjusted $104 million. The reboot will be produced by Simon Kinberg (Deadpool), Joel Silver (Sherlock Holmes) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow). »

‘Logan’s Run’ Remake Moves Ahead With ‘Colony’ Showrunner Ryan Condal

1 June 2016 10:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. is moving ahead with its reboot of “Logan's Run,” tapping “Colony” co-creator/showrunner Ryan Condal to write a new script.

The move comes a year after “X-Men Apocalypse” co-writer Simon Kinberg came on to pen a treatment.

Kinberg will produce with Joel Silver and Greg Berlanti. Kinberg is a producer on “X-Men: Apocalypse,” “Fantastic Four” and “Deadpool,” while Berlanti has teamed with DC Comics COO Geoff Johns as the creative force behind the TV hits “Arrow,” “The Flash” and “Supergirl.”

Carl Rinsch was in talks in 2010 to direct “Logan’s Run” for Warner Bros. with Silver and Akiva Goldsman producing. At that point, the project — focused on a man trying to escape a mandatory death sentence on his 30th birthday — had been in development at Warners for more than a decade, with Bryan Singer, Skip Woods, Robert Schwentke and James McTeigue associated as possible directors at various points. »

Shane Black and the 90s spec script gold rush

1 June 2016 9:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




A rush for original scripts led to Shane Black being among the highest-paid screenwriters in Hollywood. Ryan takes a look back...

Shane Black, 28 years old, poses for a photograph outside his Los Angeles bungalow. It’s 1990, and Black’s name has appeared all over the Hollywood trade press thanks to his latest script sale - or, more specifically, how much Warner Bros had spent on purchasing it. The script was for The Last Boy Scout, an action thriller that would eventually appear in cinemas in 1991 starring Bruce Willis. Black sold it for $1.75m - said to be the highest price ever paid for a screenplay at that time.

So here’s Shane Black, standing barefoot on the concrete paving slabs outside his house, which he and his roommates had dubbed the Pad O’Guys. Black’s wearing ripped jeans and a threadbare-looking lumberjack shirt; to his right »

Here's Why Matrix 4 Probably Won't Happen

30 May 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While The Matrix arrived in 1999 as one of the biggest movies of that year, changing the VFX game and becoming a true phenomenon, its sequels aren't as fondly remembered. It's been 13 years since fans sighed a bit of disappointment at 2003's trilogy ending sequel The Matrix Revolutions. And if you were hoping that Warner Bros. was getting ready to revisit the franchise any time soon, righting some of the wrongs the series made, as other long-awaited sequels have done, you can scratch that thought from your head.

Original Matrix producer Joel Silver has been making the press rounds in support of his latest movie The Nice Guys. And he candidly opened up about the possibility of continuing the Matrix franchise. It's not being planned at the moment. And it probably won't happen for a long, long time. So long, in fact, that we'll probably see a remake instead of a sequel. »

More Matrix Movies? Here's What The Trilogy's Producer Thinks

30 May 2016 11:38 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The way things work nowadays, remakes and reboots tend to clog the multiplexes. When Hollywood tries something original, like The Nice Guys for example, audiences basically overlook it in favor of the familiar . from another X-Men movie to the latest Marvel blockbuster. So you can understand why legendary producer Joel Silver was asked if one of his most successful film series, The Matrix trilogy, could ever extend, or even be remade. His answer gives me hope that the Wachowski.s vision will be left untouched.   As you likely recall, 1999.s The Matrix was such an inventive, genre-bending piece of science-fiction, the Wachowski Sisters immediately were tasked with creating a sequel. They took it one step further and crafted a trilogy, delivering The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. The sequels didn.t quite live up to the original film, but it doesn.t sound like anyone is going to get »
