Visual Linguist: A Darren Aronofsky Profile (Part 1)

29 December 2010 1:57 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With his latest feature Black Swan currently on release in North America, Trevor Hogg profiles the career of filmmaker Darren Aronofsky in the first of a two-part feature...

“When I was a kid, me and my sister and friends used to put on these little shows,” recalled American moviemaker Darren Aronofsky, the son of two school teachers. “We used to put on records and lip-sync or dance to them. We’d invite the parents up and during this one show, I’ll never forget, I turned off the lights and… had the spotlight [a big flashlight] on my sister dancing to some music… And my Dad screamed at me, ‘Turn on the lights!’ What I learned from that is that if it gets in the way of the performance, then don’t do it.” Along with a fascination with black and white photography, the young Brooklyn native found himself drawn to a controversial »

The Black List Update: Picks 10 to 6 of 2006

2 December 2010 6:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Among some of the noteworthy items on the 2006 Black List that received the least number of votes (or wasn't read by enough prod co. insiders) we find Martin McDonagh's In Bruges which received 7 votes and picking up a pair of votes we have: Lewis Colick's The Fighter which I imagine is the same project as the one that is receiving it's Oscar bid release next week --- it has gone through many rewrites and writers. We also have the first screenplay version for Life of Pi which was penned by Jean-Pierre Jeunet & Guillame Laurent, Peter Morgan's Frost/Nixon which I imagine not many folks had the chance to read and Ron Harwood's Diving Bell & The Butterfly. Here are picks 10 thru 6. 10.

Requiems: The Melodramatic Imagination of Darren Aronofsky

24 November 2010 11:18 AM, PST | | See recent IFC news »

Darren Aronofsky may have young hipster's cred, established with his fast-cut, technically daring early features "Pi" and "Requiem for a Dream." But look closely and you'll see a purveyor of old-fashioned melodramas.

While the Brooklyn-born director often shows a surface fascination with the frazzled postmodern condition, à la the films of far chillier contemporaries such as Christopher Nolan, David Fincher or the Wachowski brothers, the core of his hot-blooded weepies are about lovers and mothers, fathers and daughters -- the traditional stuff of family melodrama, in which "characters made for operettas play out the tragedies of mankind," according to film theorist Thomas Elsaesser.

Though "Pi's" Maximillian Cohen may be the least obvious of Aronofsky's melodramatic characters, the severe-minded mathematical fanatic echoes Elsaesser's observation that the "true pathos" of the melodrama derives from "the very mediocrity of the human beings involved, putting such high demands upon themselves trying to live »

Justin Bieber At The AMAs, Tsa Screenings And 'Mad Men' In Today's Twitter-Wood

22 November 2010 2:45 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

American Music Awards tweets consumed most of the Twitter-Wood feed Sunday night, with Justin Bieber pulling in the most celebrity endorsements by far. Personally, however, I'd like to endorse Nathan Fillion's perspective on the evening, as he remained focused on what really matters.

Airports, however, weren't nearly as luxurious as the AMAs this weekend, and if you were flying you were probably worried about whether the Tsa was going to scan you or give you a pat-down. Samm Levine proposed a trick to beating the system, while Judd Apatow pondered parenting decisions. Find out if you agree with either of them after the jump, right beneath John Hodgman's expectations for "Mad Men" Season 5.

Cholera In Haiti, 'Skyline' And 'Scream' In Today's Twitter-Wood

15 November 2010 1:53 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Now that a cholera epidemic has reached Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, and the death toll is climbing toward 1,000, the worsening situation has become a recurring topic of conversation in our Twitter feed. Danny DeVito was searching around for something to do to help yesterday, while Olivia Wilde shared a picture from a Haitian pediatric hospital where she's been hanging out.

In movie-related posts, "Skyline" prompted a few micro-reviews over the weekend. Sasha Grey broke her spectrum of reactions down into a single tweet and may have managed to break a Twitter-Wood record for most sentences in a single post. Check it out after the jump and see if you share her sentiments. Even if you don't, you'll see what Eli Roth received for participating in a "Scream" documentary and what Marlon Wayans recommends for the Minnesota Vikings.

The Evolution of the Hollywood Gay Joke in Three Easy Stages

9 November 2010 10:31 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

The history of queer characters in mainstream movies has been, at least in part, a history of heterosexual protagonists making fun of gay second bananas. It’s pretty much a given that the gay guy never gets to be the hero, so it boils down to how the supporting gay is going to be handled by the major players and what style of humor society has deemed appropriate for the era when the movie was made.

In the same way that gays off the screen spent the 20th century going from invisible to mocked to militant to a fact of life, so did the "funny" barbs sent our way on the big screen.

Phase One: “You’re gay, and you’re ridiculous.”

When movies began to talk in the late 1920s and beyond, gays were still pretty invisible in American society; that invisibility was mirrored on screen, particularly after the »

Lil Wayne's Release, More Halloween Costumes And Prop 19 In Today's Twitter-Wood

4 November 2010 2:11 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Lil Wayne was a hot topic for conversation on and off of Twitter today now that he's out of lock-up. Donald Glover hopes someone was able to get a picture, while Marlon Wayans sounded skeptical, and David Faustino expects big things for Weezy tonight at his post-prison release party.

Halloween costume pictures have still be showing up as well, and you can find Billy Burke and Jason Mewes sharing what they wore after the jump. They're there along with Stephen Colbert's thoughts on Prop 19 failing in California, Elizabeth Banks with a face from "Lost" and the shooting location where you might have seen Emmy Rossum working today.

John Stewart's Rally, 'The Walking Dead' And 'Rocky Horror' On 'Glee' In Today's Twitter-Wood

27 October 2010 2:00 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Michael Ian Black refuses to perform at John Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity this week, but he's got a good reason, and if you've been following his Twitter account you know what that is.

Meanwhile, the NBA tweets have been in full swing with the new season officially kicked off. Danny Pudi was all about it yesterday, while Marlon Wayans sounded worried about the Miami Heat. While the NBA is a popular topic in Twitter-Wood, it still may not have been as popular as AMC's "The Walking Dead"; Carlton Cuse and Eric Appel checked out the premiere last night and posted their thoughts. You'll find them after the jump along with Brian Lynch's concerns about last night's "Glee" episode.

Harmony Korine Casts Marlon Wayans In Hitman Movie

26 October 2010 7:04 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Former semi-professional skateboarder and Kids scribe Harmony Korine is making plans for his new film, and in doing so, he's turned to a rather unlikely lead. Marlon Wayans, best known for his famous family and goofy persona, has signed on to star in the Dogme 95 director's upcoming Twinkle Twinkle. The plot will follow a hitman who disguises himself in a dollar bill costume. Maybe not as weird as Gummo or Trash Humpers, but the upcoming project is definitely far from normal and thus falls well into the Harmony Korine wheelhouse. According to The Wrap, there's no word yet on when this might start shooting, but I'm already on board. Marlon Wayans has been nothing short of excellent in the dramatic roles he's chosen, and anyone who saw Julien Donkey-Boy can attest to just how powerful, scary and uncomfortable Korine's work can make an audience. Yes, the content's graphic nature and »

Marlon Wayans To "Twinkle, Twinkle"

26 October 2010 6:04 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Marlon Wayans ("Requiem for a Dream," "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra") has scored the lead role in the indie comedy "Twinkle, Twinkle" reports The Wrap

The comedian plays an ex-hitman with a penchant for dressing up in a costume designed to look like the U.S. dollar bill.

Harmony Korine ("Mister Lonely," "Julien Donkey-Boy"), whose previous work has proven quite surreal, will use a more regular narrative structure for this project.

Production kicks off in Nashville, Tennessee later this year. »

Marlon Wayans to Star in Harmony Korine’s Next Film

26 October 2010 9:08 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Harmony Korine's latest film Trash Humpers caused a bit of a stir on the festival circuit last year due to its odd and disturbing content, and now that it is out on DVD, it has become the focus of another minor uproar as Netflix is apparently refusing to stock it [1]. It seems like a pretty random place to draw the line, especially considering some of the edgy stuff already on Netflix, but I guess these kinds of things just tend to happen to Harmony Korine. If you want to voice your discontent, you can join this Facebook page [2], but in the meantime, we've got another intriguing scoop regarding the casting of Harmony Korine's next project. It turns out, he's got a big name lined up to star in the form of Marlon Wayans... and something tells me this is going to be a little bit different from White Chicks »

Marlon Wayans is a Dollar Bill in Twinkle, Twinkle

26 October 2010 4:30 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

Pajiba has learned and confirmed with the representatives that Marlon Wayans has been cast in Harmony Korine's upcoming indie film "Twinkle, Twinkle." There's not much known about the movie, except that it revolves around a former hitman (Wayans) who dresses up in a dollar bill costume. Why he dresses up in the costume or whether that's even an important part of the story has yet to be unveiled. Korine always comes up with something unique like "Gummo" and "Trash Humpers." Unfortunately, I have found his movies incredibly difficult to sit through. Wayans, meanwhile, is looking for more roles to make fans forget about his "Scary Movie" days. »

Marlon Wayans Cast as a Dollar Bill in Harmony Korine’s Twinkle Twinkle

25 October 2010 8:01 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Marlon Wayans (G.I. Joe) has been cast as a dollar bill in the upcoming Harmony Korine picture Twinkle, Twinkle. Let me repeat: according to TheWrap, Marlon Wayans has been cast as a dollar bill. All right — technically he’ll be playing a former hitman who dresses up in a dollar bill costume… but I’m not sure how that makes the news any less bizarre.

To be frank, judging from Harmony Korine’s oeuvre, this news shouldn’t be all that surprising. I mean this is the man whose previous film Trash Humpers focused on a bunch of sociopathic elderly people who got their kicks vandalizing homes and murdering folks. Such a synopsis would seem to be immediately appealing; but I’m sad to report the film itself is just a down right chore to sit through (as is much of Korine’s filmography).

Marlon Wayans To Star In Harmony Korine’s “Twinkle Twinkle”?

25 October 2010 8:29 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

File this under “things that make you go hmm…”

The Playlist via indieWIRE via Pajiba are reporting that Marlon Wayans is attached to star in Harmony Korine‘s next film Twinkle Twinkle, which is about a former hitman who dresses up as a dollar bill.

And that’s all the info there is about the project – that single logline, so who knows Wtf it’s really about – whether it’s a comedy, drama, or whatever.

As we already know, Wayans will be playing Richard Pryor in Bill Condon‘s long-in-gestation biopic of the comic superstar, and he did capture our attention after his dramatic turn in Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem For A Dream; so I suppose working with Korine isn’t entirely as odd as it might sound, despite Korine’s provocateur industry status.

The last time he worked with a black cast was in the short film he made »

Zack Snyder Directing Superman, High Speed Rail Lines And 'Eastbound And Down' In Today's Twitter-Wood

5 October 2010 1:31 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Zack Snyder's director colleagues expressed approval over his newly announced gig on the Superman reboot yesterday. Both Brett Ratner and Duncan Jones sent their regards, while Snyder just put up an image of a postage stamp.

A few more lively scenes showed up, too, though. Wes Craven and Pee-Wee Herman posed for a shot together, and Miranda Cosgrove got into a snowball fight while celebrating Christmas a bit early. You'll know what I mean when you take a look at the mayhem below. It's there along with Emma Roberts' pick for best film of the year, Marlon Wayans' harsh words for the 49ers and Stephen Colbert's concern for hobos.

CAA Signs Marlon Wayans

8 September 2010 4:32 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

CAA has signed Marlon Wayans. Though Wayans spent the last six years at WME, the move amounts to a homecoming. Wayans had been a longtime client at CAA along with his brothers Keenen and Shawn, until they left as a group and headed to WMA. Keenen has since moved to UTA, which helped set up his next directorial effort, It Takes A Village. Shawn doesn't have an agent, though ICM books him for stand up comedy work. Marlon Wayans is expected to reprise his role in a sequel to Paramount's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. His big opportunity, though, comes when he plays Richard Pryor in Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said? That film is set up at Sony Pictures Entertainment and will start next year, after the film's writer/director Bill Condon completes the final two installments of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. Wayans continues with »

College Football, 'Machete' Micro-Reviews, Milla Jovovich As A Thundercat In Today's Twitter-Wood

7 September 2010 2:19 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Ncaa college football re-entered Twitter-Wood this weekend, and though the Boise State game last night dominated posting, Marlon Wayans sounded off today about news that Reggie Bush could be stripped of his 2005 Heisman Trophy.

Revelations abounded as well. Milla Jovovich announced which Thundercat character she'd love to play on the big screen (her choice should shock no one), while David Spade and Dax Shepard both came clean with their feelings on "Machete," and it doesn't sound like they agreed. Find out who you side with after the jump, where some photo posts from Quinton Aaron and Eli Roth have also been included.

Hurricane Earl, Trapped Chilean Miners And The U.S. Open In Today's Twitter-Wood

31 August 2010 1:12 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Michael Ian Black may not work for the U.S. government, but if he did, he knows what he would want to name the next hurricane that shows up, and he thinks that Hurricane Earl is far too tame of a title. Marlon Wayans had disasters on his mind, too, and sent some sleepless Twitter love out to Pakistan and the miners trapped in Chile.

In photo tweets, horror ruled today. Eli Roth shared a "Last Exorcism" party picture, and Michael McKean offered up a make-up shot that's not for the faint of heart. Have a look down below where you'll see which "Eclipse" actor scored a ticket to the U.S. Open, what Dane Cook thinks about "Dancing with the Stars" and how Jon Favreau spends his lunch breaks.
