4 September 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hands up if you loved Mama! That sneaky little horror from Universal crept up from out of nowhere, landing a wodge of good reviews and a $146 million worldwide box office. Not bad for a small-time Argentinian director with few credits on his resume, right?

The Playstation mega-hit was a bestselling game for Sony, which sold 2.7 million copies. Commended by fans and critics alike for its realistic world building, the game adaptation is much-anticipated. Set in a fantasy world, the story follows a young man who believes his true love to be dead. Armed with the knowledge of a demon who can rouse the dead, he sets off into an epic world filled with a host of beasties. »

Sony Recruits Mama Director for Shadow Of The Colossus

4 September 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Look what’s back in the news again, Shadow of the Colossus.  Sony’s been working on this video game adaptation since 2009 and, at one point, the studio even recruited Josh Trank to make it his Chronicle follow-up.  Clearly that never panned out, but now the studio’s found someone else to helm the project, Mama director Andres Muschietti. Muschietti hasn’t delivered a new film since Mama’s 2013 release, so Shadow of the Colossus would only be his second feature, but had Sony moved forward with Trank, he would have been in the same position as well, so perhaps harvesting new talent through a big budget film is a prime goal here.  Hit the jump for more on the Shadow of the Colossus movie. The Jungle Book’s Justin Marks was busy working on the script early on, but now Sony Pictures confirmed that Hanna co-scribe, Seth Lochhead, will »

George Clooney to Adapt Hack Attack for the Big Screen

4 September 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

George Clooney's next directing gig will be a big screen adaptation of a book called Hack Attack. It's based on the true story of journalist Nick Davies and his account of the British phone hacking scandal surrounding Rupert Murdoch's news empire. Here's a more detailed description of the story:

Hack Attack depicts a world where, as Davies writes, "Everything is for sale. Nobody is exempt." Over six years, Davies investigated News Corporation and its subsidiary, News International; his book shows how their habit of hacking into the voice mail messages of elected officials, celebrities, and even ordinary British citizens and the victims of terror attacks was wide-ranging and ongoing. The resulting scandal would not only mark the end of News of the World after 168 years of continuous publication, but spur a government inquiry that would bring to light some of the most unthinkable of business practices.

Clooney Has Chosen His Next Directing Project

4 September 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

With the recent controversy surrounding a bunch of celebrities having their phones hacked, unleashing a wave of risqué pictures- an event that's been classily nicknamed The Fappening- people might have forgotten about a much more tumultuous phone hacking scandal. In 2011, British newspaper "News of The World" closed it's doors after 168 years of circulation. Why? Because it was discovered that the paper's owner had been part of a phone hacking/tapping campaign that shook the nation to its core. The owner in question, News Corp's Rupert Murdoch, had overseen the hacking of the confidential voicemails and e-mails of Britain's most prominent elected officials, celebrities, and citizens.

Journalist Nick Davies, who spent 6 years investigating News Corp, as well as its subsidiary News International, released a tell-all book in July titled Hack Attack: The Inside Story of How The Truth Caught Up With Rupert Murdoch. That book, which tells a dark tale of corruption, »
