Sony In Talks To Adapt Richard Price’s The Whites

25 August 2014 5:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Over the years, American novelist and screenwriter Richard Price has seen many of his works make smooth transitions from the page to the screen. His book The Wanderers was adapted by Philip Kaufman into a now-iconic coming-of-age film, and Spike Lee’s take on Clockers earned strong reviews. Additionally, Price’s work as a screenwriter has been highly successful – among his accolades are an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay (for The Color of Money) and a Writers Guild of America Award (for HBO’s The Wire, on which he served as a writer). Now, Sony is betting on Price’s ability to deliver another strong drama by entering talks to adapt his upcoming work The Whites.

If a deal is made, super-producer Scott Rudin (Captain Phillips) will produce a film adaptation of the crime drama, the first written by Price under the pen name Harry Brandt. Set in New York City, »

Jeremy Lovering To Helm Sony Horror Pic ‘The Bringing,’ Inspired By Cecil Hotel

21 August 2014 3:09 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Sony Pictures is negotiating with Jeremy Lovering to direct The Bringing, the horror script by Brandon and Phillip Murphy based on actual events. Matt Tolmach and Daniela Cretu are producing. This has been top priority at Sony, and at one time had Nicolas Winding Refn circling. The pic is based on Elisa Lam, who was found dead in the water tanks on the roof of the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles. That’s the place that killers like Richard Ramirez called home at one time or another, and where suicides have occurred. Footage of Lam’s bizarre, inexplicable behavior in an elevator before her death became a massive Internet sensation, and this has been turned into the story of the man investigating her death, and the nightmare he stumbles into. Cretu’s First Born Films developed the script that was brought in by Mtp’s Kate Checchi and Brad Zimmerman. »

Shane Black Will Direct The Destroyer

21 August 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Shane Black, the energetic helmer behind Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Iron Man 3, has been tapped by Sony Pictures to direct The Destroyer, an adaptation of the adventure book series by Warren Murphy.

In the long-running paperback series, which was last adapted into a 1985 film starring Fred Ward, Newark cop Remo Williams is framed for a crime he didn’t commit and sentenced to death. However, instead of executing Williams, the government fakes his death so as to train him as an assassin. Going to work for the clandestine U.S. agency Cure, Williams teams with Asian assassin Chiun and begins a long career of taking down evildoers across the globe.

Jim Uhls (Fight Club) penned the script with James Mullaney, who first co-authored entries in the Destroyer series then became the sole author until it ended in 2008.

The Flash

The CW's "The Flash" goes to air in 52 days, a number being familiar to DC fans due to the current 'New 52' continuity. To celebrate, the network has posted a new photo of star Grant Gustin as Barry Allen in his The Flash costume. [Source: Twitter]

Syfy Developing Childhood’s End Miniseries

16 August 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Admittedly, Childhood’s End is another alien invasion/post apocalyptic kind of tale, of which we currently have a glut in our television schedules. But, if Syfy is going to insist on churning these stories out, it may as well be from the pen of the master – Arthur C. Clarke. In fact, since it was first published in 1954, it could be argued that Syfy has actually landed one of the original, and best.

When mysterious Overlords arrive and peacefully invade Earth, they end all war, eradicate poverty, and help humanity to form a world government – the planet becomes a near-utopia. However, the Overlords remain hidden, distant and mysterious until, years later, their unveiling heralds the dawn of a new age. The story has previously been adapted for a two-hour BBC radio presentation by writer Tony Mulholland, but it has never reached our screens – big or small – making this something quite special for Syfy. »

Get Tied Down With First Trailer for 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

24 July 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

No longer the erotic haven for soccer moms across America, "Fifty Shades of Grey" is now a full-blown pop-culture phenomenon that Universal hopes will boost its Q1 earnings. Yes, the "Fifty Shades of Grey" motion picture trailer has landed. Aside from observing the ways it might be reworked into a mock trailer about a serial killer luring a young woman, the material looks awfully bland, speaking for both Sam Taylor-Johnson’s drab aesthetics and the chemistry (or lack thereof) between Jamie Dornan’s Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson’s Anastasia Steele. One hopes the movie itself, produced by Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti and written by Kelly Marcel ("Saving Mr. Banks") is not as timid as this. Have a look below, previewing what the studio will release this Valentine’s Day (har har har): »

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Trailer Arrives Online

24 July 2014 5:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On Thursday morning, Universal Studios debuted its first trailer for “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the highly anticipated film based on the erotic novels by E.L. James.

The movie stars Jamie Dornan (who appears san shirt) as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as his inexperienced lover Anastasia Steele.

The trailer, featuring a remix of Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love,” starts off very innocently before teasing a few sex and bondage scenes at the end, including the image above of Johnson (the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith) blindfolded and naked.

The film, directed by Sam Taylor Johnson, has not been rated but it would be surprising if the MPAA gave it anything below an R-rating, given the graphic sex in the novels.

Sony Turmoil: Top Executive Exodus Continues

22 July 2014 4:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Turmoil continues to envelop Sony Pictures’ top executive ranks, begging the question of when and if the current administration can turn around the struggling studio and put an end to the upheaval that has been plaguing its Culver City lot for months.

Sony’s worldwide marketing and distribution chief Jeff Blake, who agreed Tuesday to “step aside” and leave the studio after 22 years, joins the exodus of executives who have spun through the studio’s dizzying revolving door over the past year. Several division heads were fired, including worldwide marketing president Marc Weinstock; home entertainment chief David Bishop; senior VP of media relations Steve Elzer and Chris Cookson, president of Sony Pictures Technologies. Matt Brown, executive VP, worldwide commercial for Sony Pictures Home Entertainment; executive VP of global communications Ann Boyd; VP of global communications Jason Allen and home entertainment and acquisitions public relations head Fritz Friedman also left.
