Matt Damon, Zhang Yimou Want To Scale ‘The Great Wall’ In China

20 September 2014 11:04 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: While all the buzz this week about Matt Damon focused on Deadline’s reveal that he’ll reteam with Paul Greengrass in their third Bourne Identity film, there’s another very exotic international film that Damon is also flirting with. That is the lead role in The Great Wall, the Legendary Pictures film the great Chinese helmer Zhang Yimou signed on to direct. Legendary Pictures principal Thomas Tull has been trying to mount the China-set epic for several years now. Script is by Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro, but the most recent draft is by Tony Gilroy, who is familiar to Damon in that he scripted those terrific Bourne Identity films. The Great Wall was going to shoot last year and give Legendary a foothold into the China market, with Ed Zwick helming. While Zwick went as far as casting Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker, it just didn’t »

James Schamus On Screenwriting: “124 Pages Of Begging For Money & Attention”

18 September 2014 4:34 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

When James Schamus is on a bill, he can generally be trusted to deliver an intellectual reality check to the motion picture business. That’s just what he did tonight in London as the first guest of BAFTA’s 2014 Screenwriters’ Lectures series. Introduced as “renowned autodidact and multihyphenate,” the former Focus Features boss and the author of dozens of screenplays in 25 years of making movies used his 60 minutes at the lectern to reject the use of the word “art” as applied to screenwriting. His evidence began with the birth of the screenplay and meandered through copyright law and German esthetics. But it was a business lecture, not a philosophical one, he stressed. “If there’s one thing I can say, it’s that in 25 years in the movie business, I made money.”

But Hollywood has changed, he said. Waxing on the world of studio moviemaking, he put it bluntly: “Hollywood »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Matt Damon And Paul Greengrass To Return To Bourne

16 September 2014 12:35 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In a surprise move over at Universal, both director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon are both making a return to the Jason Bourne franchise that started with The Bourne Identity all of the way back in 2002. Edge Of Tomorrow helmer Doug Liman directed that movie, but Greengrass brought the following sequels The Bourne Supermacy and The Bourne Ultimatum to cinemas in the years that followed.

In 2012, ‘Ultimatum’ writer Tony Gilroy stepped into the role of director for spin-off The Bourne Legacy, which was led by newcomer to the franchise Jeremy Renner, and while a sequel to that movie was due in 2016, it now looks like that release slot may be taken by the new Greengrass movie.

While the spin-off sequel will not be released in that slot, Universal did say that a film that will continue to feature the exploits of Renner’s Aaron Cross, will still continue to be developed at the studio. »

Matt Damon Will Probably Return As Jason Bourne

15 September 2014 5:08 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When Matt Damon decided to walk away from the Jason Bourne franchise, it was for one very simple reason: he didn't want to make the movies without director Paul Greengrass involved, and Greengrass decided he was satisfied with the work that he had put into the series. Universal Pictures has moved on, making The Bourne Legacy with Tony Gilroy directing and Jeremy Renner starring, but now it looks like it won't be long until the original star returns. Variety's sources have informed them that both Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are now in early negotiations to come back for another installment in the Bourne franchise. The article doesn't explain why the actor and the filmmaker are thinking about changing their minds, only that it is actually happening. One important factor could simply be time, as it has been a full seven years since the release of The Bourne Ultimatum in »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass in Talks for New 'Bourne' Movie

15 September 2014 4:55 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass just may have another Bourne movie up their sleeve. Despite months of denials, and months of rumors, sources say Damon and Greengrass are indeed talking to Universal about bringing the amnesiac assassin back to the big screen. And here’s the kicker: Greengrass would not only direct, but also write the script. (The Bourne trilogy was written by Tony Gilroy, among a handful of others scribes, and this would be the first time Greengrass, who wrote United 93 and directed the second and third Bourne installments, will have a hand in penning the adventures.)

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass Reuniting for Bourne 5; Legacy Sequel Delayed

15 September 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Hell has indeed frozen over.  We’ve heard Matt Damon say many, many times that he would only consider returning for Bourne 5 if director Paul Greengrass came back, and we’ve heard Greengrass say many, many times that there was no more creative story left in the world of Jason Bourne.  Now it appears that they’ve stumbled upon an idea worth exploring, as Universal Pictures is currently in the process of making deals for both Damon and Greengrass to reunite on another Bourne picture—their third together.  Moreover, Universal is so bullish on this prospect that the plan is to have this ready in time for release in 2016.  So where does this leave the Bourne Legacy sequel with Jeremy Renner?  More after the jump. The folks over at Deadline report that the dealmaking process has begun to bring Greengrass and Damon back to the franchise in which they had »

Universal Reuniting Matt Damon & Paul Greengrass For Another Jason Bourne Film

15 September 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Jason Bourne is coming back. Universal Pictures has begun making deals with Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass to reunite for their third film in The Bourne Identity series, sources tell me. This is an absolute stunner — and Universal would not comment nor would the reps — because Greengrass told Deadline as recently as last year that once Bourne regained his memory, there was no place else for the character to go creatively. His search formed the spine for the trilogy Damon starred in.

Well, they’ve figured it out. I’m told that the studio is so bullish on this that the intention is to make the reteam the next Bourne film to go into production to make the July 16, 2016, release slot that Universal had previously assigned to an untitled Bourne film. That means it would step in front of the spinoff sequel that is to reprise Jeremy Renner »

Review: Jake Gyllenhaal gets next-level creepy in great, disturbing 'Nightcrawler'

6 September 2014 12:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Dan Gilroy's been at this for a while now. His first produced screenplay was the largely-forgotten "Freejack," a science-fiction action movie starring Emilio Estevez, Mick Jagger, and a fresh-off-his-Oscar-win Anthony Hopkins in 1992. The other main co-star in the film was Rene Russo, who ended up married to Gilroy after that film, and now, a full 22 years later, she's co-starring in "Nightcrawler," which is Gilroy's move from being a writer to being a writer-director. If this is any indication of what he can do when he's in full control, then let the era of Dan Gilroy commence. Disturbing and dark, "Nightcrawler" is many things. It is a remarkable La movie, something I would not say lightly. I have a lot of problems watching movies that are "about" La, just like I have a lot of problems watching movies about making movies. I have trouble separating what I know from what I'm watching. »

Jake Gyllenhaal on Losing 30 Pounds and Himself in ‘Nightcrawler’

2 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jake Gyllenhaal has a razor-thin scar on the palm of his hand. It’s a permanent souvenir from the set of “Nightcrawler,” the Toronto Film Festival thriller, in which the actor plays a twisted crime paparazzo. On the Los Angeles shoot last fall, director Dan Gilroy was filming Gyllenhaal simmering alone in a house after his character, Lou, suffers a professional setback. “We were in the middle of a scene with a mirror,” Gyllenhaal recalls on a recent afternoon. “I hit the mirror.” The violent act wasn’t in the script, and Gyllenhaal still isn’t sure what propelled him to do it. “It was just a choice in that moment that happened,” says Gyllenhaal, who accidentally sliced open his hand on a shard of glass.

Doctors at Cedars-Sinai eventually stopped the bleeding and stitched him up, and Gyllenhaal returned to work eight hours later, with his wrist wrapped in gauze. »

Jake Gyllenhaal Goes To The Dark Side Of TV Journalism In New Nightcrawler Trailer

21 August 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the most fascinating and bizarre thrillers of the fall, Nightcrawler, continues to pique our interests with its very strange, off-kilter trailers. The teaser, which featured a lot of Jake Gyllenhaal addressing the camera, emphasized the film’s dark comedy. A more recent trailer highlighted its disorienting psychological themes. Now, we have the newest preview for the film, which reveals more about the crime elements of the story. Nevertheless, the different types of marketing are probably suitable for a movie about a man with a very offbeat personality.

Jake Gyllenhaal has been on a roll in the last two years, with acclaimed turns in End of Watch and Prisoners. His role in Denis Villeneuve’s duality drama Enemy was the finest of his career and signalled the arrival of more daring performances from the Oscar-nominated actor. Nightcrawler, which premieres at Tiff (like Prisoners and Enemy did last year), is »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – August 11th 2014

11 August 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)

The good news is that now that all the singing and the farting around is done in Hobbiton and the story has kicked in good and proper, the majority of this second in Peter Jackson’s portrayal of a slim Tolkien story overblown to epic proportions is mostly action with a minimum of plot. It’s still got various story beats it has to hit of course and is very much a middle chapter, but this has a momentum which was really missing from An Unexpected Journey.

In this second Hobbit film you can start to see the stuff that was added in to pad out the two films into a trilogy with characters who do not appear in the books introduced and a weird elf/dwarf romance along with a more angsty and badass Legolas, strangely enough it doesn’t feel out-of-place.
