‘Game of Thrones’ Actor Cast in Syfy Miniseries

24 October 2014 3:22 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Forget the political warfare of the Seven Kingdoms: “Game of Thrones” actor Charles Dance will soon be staging an alien invasion, as Variety has confirmed he will be one of the leads in Syfy’s “Childhood’s End.”

The six-hour miniseries, which is an adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke’s classic novel “Childhood’s End,” focuses on what happens after the alien invasion of Earth by the mysterious Overlords. While their arrival is seen as a peaceful one, it also begins decades of an apparent utopia under indirect alien rule — at the cost of human identity and culture. As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, Dance will play Karellen, the Overlords’ ambassador.

The project, which is being adapted by Matthew Graham (BBC’s “Life on Mars”) and directed by Nick Hurran (“Sherlock: His Last Vow”), will begin filming next month in Australia and will premiere on Syfy next year. It »

Film Review: Artificially Glorified ‘Dracula Untold’ Lacks Reason for Being Retold

11 October 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – For moviegoers, each new film is a chance to escape, feel, fear, cry, be thrilled or laugh. Filmmakers and actors want you to experience this range of emotions, but producers and investors care most about the film making money. That’s why Hollywood is scared of truly original stories. Originality is an unknown without a built-in fan base.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

To minimize their risk and inspire confidence in a return on investment, most new films these days are based on a best-selling book (or a series), a beloved comic book or a remake of an already famous character from the past. Original films like “Juno” and “Once” happen once in a blue moon. They take a huge viral following to break free and impress at the box office.

Going into a short feature-length film like “Dracula Untold,” which is only 92 minutes, you already know it’s following a safety formula. »

Alien Sci-Fi Novel ‘Themis Files’ To Sony

10 October 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Sony has acquired The Themis Files, a debut novel by Sylvain Neuvel that Matt Tolmach and Josh Bratman will produce. The latter found the book and brought it to the studio. Mike De Luca and Lauren Abrahams will oversee for the studio in what I’m told is a big canvas elevated thought provoking science fiction project.

The novel revolves around a secret project to assemble the ancient body parts of a giant humanoid relic buried throughout the world by aliens. It’s discovered in the Black Hills of South Dakota, where a young girl named Rose Franklin falls into a huge hole and literally lands in the palm of a giant metal hand. The government swarms, but loses interest after failing to gain any military or technological secrets. By the time it’s demilitarized years later, that young girl is a physicist with the University of Chicago  and »

7 October 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Robin Hood is set to make a surprising return to the big-screen. However, it won.t just be a fleeting visit because Sony is currently negotiating a seven-figure deal to make a series of films that revolve around the legendary icon and his merry posse. This potential franchise, which is so far entitled, Hood, has been scribed by Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott, while Michael De Luca brought it to the attention of Sony and will oversee its production for them. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the figure that the pair have been paid for their work is $1 million against $2 million, however producers still haven.t finished working out how much they.ll receive. It.s believed that Sony was seduced by two certain words in their pitch, as Goodman and Lott are alleged to have insisted that they plan to base their adaptation on the "Avengers," and that they »

Sony Developing a 'Robin Hood: Fast & Furious' Cinematic Universe

7 October 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

So we have the Marvel Cinematic Universe with The Avengers franchise, which is ever-expanding into the Cosmic Cinematic Universe thanks to the addition of Guardians of the Galaxy. Warner Bros. and DC are creating their Justice League world of films continuing with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Universal is attempting a Monsterverse starting with Dracula Untold and continuing with a Mummy remake and there is talk of the Bourne franchise looking at creating an interconnected world of films as well. It's the era of world-building folks and it isn't done yet. Today it was announced producer Michael De Luca has finalized a seven-figure deal with Sony for a Robin Hood cinematic universe to be titled Hood followed by whatever subtitle is deemed necessary once the stories of Robin Hood, Little John, Friar Tuck and Will Scarlett begin being told. The pitch comes from Cory Goodman (Priest, The Last Witch Hunter »

Sony Developing 'Avengers'-Esque 'Robin Hood' Franchise That Will Be Like 'Mission: Impossible' Mixed With 'Fast & Furious'

7 October 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are no small risks in Hollywood these days. Just big ones. If you want that corner office and a few extra zeros on your paycheck, you better do something to get the attention of your bosses upstairs. Clearly someone at Sony is throwing around all the right buzzwords. Producer Michael De Luca has managed to get Sony to make a seven-figure deal for "Hood," via a pitch from Cory Goodman ("Priest," "The Last Witch Hunter") and Jeremy Lott ("The Falling"). And as you might guess from the title (which isn't to be confused with the project The Wachowskis tried to get moving a few years ago), this project will apply the superhero treatment to Robin Hood, Little John, Friar Tuck and Will Scarlett, creating an Avengers-esque, interconnected cinematic universe, with a tone said to be between "Mission: Impossible" and "Fast & Furious." Lol. And while there was been some hue and cry about this online, »

Robin ‘Hood’ Will Provide Sony With Shared Cinematic Universe

6 October 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If it wasn’t obvious from the desperation oozing from The Amazing Spider-man 2, Sony would really like a shared cinematic universe. Ever since Marvel stepped up their game and showed the big guys how it’s done, it is now necessary that films are not only single franchises, but expand their scope into new characters and realms. Hell, even The Conjuring has just received one thanks to Annabelle.

But despite all this, and the majority of shared universes being set in the world of superheroes who have shared their comic book pages for many a year, this has to be the absolute strangest. Sony are planning a film titled Hood, which will be a The Fast And The Furious meets Mission: Impossible take on the classic tale of Robin Hood. We assume from such comparisons that said film will take place in modern day.

Although that may not be too suprising, »

Sony's 'Robin Hood' Will Have an 'Avengers' Style Shared Universe

6 October 2014 6:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, we reported on Sony's upcoming remake of Robin Hood, which the studio acquired in a heated bidding war with several other studios. The movie is based on a pitch from Cory Goodman (The Last Witch Hunter) and Jeremy Lott (Lore), and new details have come forward.

The movie was originally said to be a 'reinvention' of the classic adventure tale. Now, The Hollywood Report reveal that the movie, titled Hood, will create a shared universe much like Marvel's The Avengers. The franchise will focus on a series of movies that revolve around the archer and his band of Merry Men, including Little John, Friar Tuck and Will Scarlett. They are being envisioned as a superhero team from England's middle ages.

Hood will be a fast-paced action adventure movie that is being compared to the Fast & Furious and Mission: Impossible franchises. Sources close to the deal say it was bought for $1 million agasint $2 million, »

Sony Near Deal for ‘Robin Hood’ Pitch (Exclusive)

6 October 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After a heated bidding war, Sony is in talks to acquire a pitch set in the world of “Robin Hood.”

Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott brought the pitch to Sony and sources say it sold in the low seven-figure range. Sony had no comment.

Plot details are vague other than that it’s a re-imagining of the classic “Robin Hood” tale.

Insiders say Working Title and Paramount had also circled the project but it was Sony and president of production Michael De Luca who ultimately landed it.

Universal Pictures was the last studio to take on the property with Ridley Scott directing and Russell Crowe starring. That film, considered somewhat of a disappointment, made more than $300 million worldwide.

Goodman is repped by Wme and attorney Adam Kaller and Lott by CAA and attorney Michael Schenkman. Both are also repped by Apeture Entertainment.

Sony Finds New Robin Hood Pitch

6 October 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

After many years and almost as many takes on the Robin Hood character, you might be forgiven for thinking that there is nothing new to say about the man. But Sony disagrees, putting the finishing touches on a deal to buy a new pitch set in his world, simply called Hood.Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott are the writers behind what is, by our count, the 730rd take on the tale of the outlaw Robin of Locksley, his Merry Men and Maid Marian. The exact details of what the new script will do to or say about the legend are being kept quiet beyond the idea that it'll be the start of an action franchise and – of course!  – a potential shared universe of Merry Men movies. But it was compelling enough to ignite a bidding war that also saw Working Title and Paramount looking to buy it up.Sony ended »

New Dracula Untold Featurette Offers "A Look Inside" The Movie

25 September 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Like a lot of iconic movie monsters, Dracula has had a rough time of it over recent years, with one of his most recent live-action adaptations – the NBC television series which starred Jonathan Rhys Meyers – lasting only a single season before being cancelled due to low ratings and a tepid critical response. Perhaps then it’s for the best that Dracula Untold is taking the vampire back to basics as it strives to deliver a very different take on his early years. In this movie, the focus will be on Vlad Tepes (Luke Evans) as he strikes a deal a deal with dark forces in order to protect his family and protect his homeland.

As TriStar Lands Ang Lee, Who's In Line to Replace Sony's Pascal?

19 September 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Following a rough 2013, Spe co-chairmen Michael Lynton and Amy Pascal have been shifting gears of late, on the one hand letting go of distribution and marketing execs Jeff Blake and Marc Weinstock, and on the other bolstering their executive roster with strong players like Michael De Luca, who now runs production under Columbia motion picture president Doug Belgrad. They are also buttressing the Sony release slate by investing in well-financed production labels run by powerful ex-studio chiefs Tom Rothman (Twentieth Century Fox, now TriStar Productions) and Jeff Robinov (Warner Bros., now Studio 8).  The question is whether Lynton and Pascal are shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic. They make a tight and loyal team, but by any measure Pascal is in a tentative position, and any one of these men could be poised to fill her shoes.  That does not mean these players all want to return to the chores of administration and. »
