With Steven Soderbergh's "Behind The Candelabra" premiering at Cannes in the next few days, and hitting HBO a week on Sunday, we're not going to see a new film from him for a long time, if ever. But as he moves into other ventures, we hope he keeps up his habit of collaborating with great filmmakers on commentary tracks. Soderbergh's one of the most articulate and fascinating thinkers on film out there, and from his own films to something like the track with Tony Gilroy on the Criterion edition of "The Third Man," he's a consistently entertaining and informative host on DVD talk-throughs, none more so than when paired with the great Mike Nichols. The two have teamed up a few times and Cinephilia And Beyond have dug up perhaps their finest hour together, on the commentary for Nichols' debut film "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf."

The story follows a young man who gets drawn into the unusual world of freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal will play the reporter, although no character details were given for Rene Russo's role.
Screenwriter Dan Gilroy is making his directorial debut from his own screenplay. The writer-director's brother, Tony Gilroy (The Bourne Legacy), is producing alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, Jennifer Fox, Michel Litvak, and David Lancaster.
No, not That Nightcrawler. Alan Cumming’s job is safe should he is ever brought back to the “X-Men” franchise to reprise his teleportin’ role. (God knows with all the familiar faces Bryan Singer is stuffing into his “X-Men: Days of Future Past”, leaving ol blue-skinned Nightcrawler out is kind of weird.) Instead, Jake Gyllenhaal will star in a “dark drama” (as opposed to a “light drama”, I guess) called “Nightcrawler” that will be directed by Dan Gilroy, who will be making his feature film directorial debut after writing Hollywood blockbusters like “Real Steel” and the last “Bourne” movie. “Nightcrawler” will star Gyllenhaal as “a man in Los Angeles who tries his hand at freelance crime reporting.” The film will co-star Thor’s mom (and Dan Gilroy’s wife) Rene Russo, with production set for this October. Dan’s brother Tony Gilroy, along with Jennifer Fox and Gyllenhaal will co-produce. »

The Bourne Legacy may not quite have kicked the franchise in the robust new direction hoped for, but it certainly gave a boost to the professional clout of writer Tony Gilroy. He's now producing the indie thriller Nightcrawler, the directorial debut of his brother Dan Gilroy. Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo will be heading his cast.Dan also wrote the film, which involves "a driven young man who discovers the nocturnal world of freelance crime journalism in La". So nothing to do with blue mutants that go Bamf! then. Nor the Scottish techno band; telekinetic Twilight Zone military units; or that Brian Thompson guy in Cobra. Oh wait, he was the Night Slasher. Makes all the difference.Gilroy (Dan) was the co-writer on Legacy and has the "story" credit on Shawn Levy's Real Steel. He also wrote The Fall (directed by Tarsem, who appears elsewhere in news this morning), and, »

Michael Bay is sorry for the way he ended one of his biggest blockbusters.
“I will apologize for 'Armageddon,' because we had to do the whole movie in 16 weeks. It was a massive undertaking," Bay told Rene Rodriguez of the Miami Herald when asked about his hyper-kinetic editing style. "That was not fair to the movie. I would redo the entire third act if I could. But the studio literally took the movie away from us. It was terrible. My visual effects supervisor had a nervous breakdown, so I had to be in charge of that. I called James Cameron and asked 'What do you do when you’re doing all the effects yourself?' But the movie did fine."

Hal Couzens“I had finished a show called Paul  for Working Title and Universal, a little alien film, and I wanted to continue a relationship with them; they offered me the job of Bourne and I jumped at the chance,” explains Visual Effects Supervisor Hal Couzens as to how became involved with The Bourne Legacy (2012) which sees Matt Damon (The Talented Mr. Ripley) replaced by Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) in the fourth instalment of the gritty spy franchise. “Tony Gilroy [Michael Clayton] is the writer and director of the show; he wrote the previous three so he had a good understanding of the overall story. The biggest creative tie-in that we had was religiously sticking to it being autumn/winter 2007 to the point that monitors weren’t generally 16:9, they were »
A couple of thoughts on TV from a feature guy. The Kevin Williamson-created Fox series The Following might be the most aggravating but addictive series to come down the pike in some time. Kevin Bacon plays an FBI agent trying to capture a serial killer (James Purefoy) who has accumulated a Manson Family-like group of creepy disciples all too eager to commit unimaginably horrible acts on the killer’s behalf. As if that in itself wasn’t unlikely enough, the killer met all of his acolytes when they visited him in prison. Hasn’t anybody in the FBI thought of checking the visitor list from his days behind bars, rather than waiting and reacting to the latest horror? Can the FBI really be that dumb? That said, I cannot think of a time when I’ve been hooked on so many series, between The Following, Justified, The Walking Dead, »
