The Best Movies in July: 'Bourne,' New Woody Allen and More

30 June 2016 9:43 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Summer blockbuster season hits its peak in July, with Paul Feig's rebooted Ghostbusters, a fifth installment of the mega-successful Ice Age franchise, and the much-hyped Star Trek Beyond all on deck. But there's plenty to take in this month, from a scrappy superspy franchise with something to prove to a handful of intriguing, lower-stakes indie releases. Whether you're looking to get your fix of spectacle or searching for some much-needed counter-programming, read on for five releases to keep an eye on over the next few weeks.

‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Reveals New Images and Darth Vader’s Involvement

23 June 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s not hard to generate buzz around any film set in the universe of Star Wars, but between the release of its first trailer and more recent news of reshoots, the swell surrounding Gareth Edward’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story continues to rise. Today, we learn that James Earl Jones will reprise his role as the voice of mouth-breather Darth Vader, but don’t expect him to show often.

It’s unclear yet what kind of role Vader will play in the proceedings, but Lucasfilms President Kathleen Kennedy stated, “He will be in the movie sparingly […] but at a key, strategic moment, he will loom large.” There’s rumblings that this could be during a large action sequence that was potentially toned down in reshoots. As long as he’s not a gigantic hologram sitting on a gigantic chair in a gigantic room (loud cough), I’m satisfied. »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Adorns EW Cover, Darth Vader Confirmed To Return

22 June 2016 6:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Cries of creative turmoil be damned, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story adorns the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, heralding the return of an old foe in Darth Vader.

Yes, the inclusion of the galaxy’s original menace was all but confirmed during the spinoff’s storied development, with reports claiming that Disney and Lucasfilm even opted to water down the Vader sequence. However that may be, fans can at least take solace in the fact that Anakin Skywalker’s warped Jedi will feature in some capacity.

Entertainment Weekly goes on to tease a flurry of exciting story tidbits, so if you’re wary of spoilers, it’s best to remain on this side of the jump.

Mads Mikkelsen Allays Fears That Rogue One Is In Turmoil: It’s Still “The Same Film”

10 June 2016 8:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Long before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story entered development in earnest, it was almost a forgone conclusion that Gareth Edwards’ militaristic offshoot, while fresh and intriguing on paper, would always been seen as something of a creative risk, particularly as it’s emerging from the huge shadow cast by The Force Awakens and its record-breaking success.

But few could have predicted the hullabaloo that began to snowball once Disney officially ordered reshoots of Edwards’ Anthology flick after reportedly expressing concern with the initial cut. With upwards of 40 percent of scenes set to be overhauled and a new director being brought in to oversee the changes in Tony Gilroy, Rogue One has been a hub of activity over the past fortnight for better or worse.

Mads Mikkelsen Comments On The 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Reshoots, Without Debunking!

10 June 2016 8:38 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ever since we added the latest twist in the ongoing conversation about the current set of extensive reshoots taking place for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, people have been dying to get some sort of official word on the matter. We've been reaching out to people, and are doing our best to follow up on the report from earlier this week from our trusted source. For now, though, we've got fresh comments from one of the film's stars: Mads Mikkelsen.

The actor was recently asked about what's going on over on the Rogue One sets these days, and he did his best to say quell fan concerns, while making it pretty clear that he's not really in a position to declare how extensive they are.

"Basically, all the big films I have done always have reshoots, it is part of their budget. They’re either not super happy with a scene bit, »

Oh boy, here we go again. Ever since it was revealed that Disney was ordering reshoots for Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the internet has been going wild. Rumors and speculation have run rampant, with all kinds of reports coming out that seemingly contradicted one another in every imaginable way.

First we heard that the reshoots were just to include a special cameo, and then we were told that the studio wasn’t happy with the tone of the film and ordered that 40% of it be reshot. It was further reported that writer/director Christopher McQuarrie was being called in to help out, but the filmmaker later shot down those rumors. EW also attempted to throw water over the fire by reassuring everyone that nothing was wrong and that these reshoots were planned from the start. »

Fact or Fiction: Sorting Out Rumors on ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Reshoots

5 June 2016 4:41 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Once the media started reporting reshoots for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, you can practically hear thousands of fans screaming on the Internet.

Don’t push the eject button yet.

Disney is going into spin control mode to calm the nerves of Star Wars fans and media alike.

So this is what we know:

Fact: There will be reshoots. The reshoots were always planned since the beginning of production to allow certain tweaks if necessary. Even Star Wars: The Force Awakens had some reshoots. And that film broke records at the box office.

Fact: According to Entertainment Weekly’s source, the reshoots involve dialogue scenes—not any combat scenes. The changes are with “clarity and character development.”

Fact: The new timeline is to lock the picture sometime around mid-August and score the movie in September. In comparison to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that picture locked in October after its reshoots. »

"Rogue One" Enlists Another For Reshoots

5 June 2016 4:07 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Depending upon whom you believe, reshoots on "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" are either fairly minimal and mostly just about making it better, or they're extensive and part of some serious retooling. All seem to indicate the studio is keen on making something that's tonally more akin to the main "Star Wars" series and more familiar than the first cut screened for executives - one which is rumored to be more of a dark war movie than people might expect.

On Friday we learned that "Bourne" film series scribe Tony Gilroy had come onboard to help with re-writes. Now, THR reports that not only will Gilroy's role be more extensive than that, he'll be joined by someone else.

The trade says that along with re-writes Gilroy will be behind the camera during additional filming, supervising the reshoots, while veteran stunt coordinator and second unit director Simon Crane ("Edge of Tomorrow, »

Is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in crisis? It’s hard to say, but those rumours about reshoots taking place have ended up being accurate, and it sounds like Disney definitely isn’t happy with what director Gareth Edwards has delivered.

More details on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story reshoots, Tony Gilroy assisting Gareth Edwards

4 June 2016 10:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since it was revealed during the week that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be undergoing reshoots, there’s been a tonne of rumours and speculation surrounding December’s first Star Wars Anthology movie: Disney execs are extremely unhappy with the first cut, Christopher McQuarrie has been brought in to replace Gareth Edwards (which McQuarrie strongly denied on Twitter), and around 40% of the movie is being reshot.

Well, Entertainment Weekly has been in touch with its Bothan spies at Lucasfilm to find out the truth behind the reshoots, revealing that they are set to get underway at the end of this month and will finish in August. Their source dismisses talk that almost half of the movie is being reworked, stating that: “If we were rewriting the movie and reshooting 40 percent of movie, we would not be finishing in August. People really would be panicking – and changing the release date. »

"Bourne" Scribe Tackling "Rogue One" Reshoots

3 June 2016 9:54 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the biggest stories of this week was the news that "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" was set to shortly undergo reshoots following a studio screening of the film.

Those reports indicated that execs had issues with the darker tone and wanted something lighter and more "four quadrant friendly". As a result the additional filming, which is par for the course with most blockbusters these days, is set to be more extensive than usual. How extensive and what they entail is where all the rumors are running rampant right now.

Yesterday's report at Making Star Wars got people talking as it made some bold claims - that the reshoots will take eight weeks and involve up to 40% of the film being redone. Added to that Christopher McQuarrie would be working extensively with director Gareth Edwards onset to make sure they're on the "same page".

Here's What the Star Wars: Rogue One Reshoots Include

3 June 2016 6:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, rumors started flying about Disney's first Star Wars spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, with sources claiming that the studio isn't happy with the movie, and that they forced director Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) to undergo four weeks of extensive reshoots this summer. The reshoots were ultimately confirmed later that day, although the rumor that reshoots were caused by negative test screening feedback were ultimately shot down. Today we have even more details about the reshoots, including word that writer Tony Gilroy, best known for writing the original Bourne trilogy, has come aboard to tweak the script.

There had been rumors that Christopher McQuarrie had come aboard to help with the reshoots, but he shot down those reports through social media earlier this week. However, Entertainment Weekly's report reveals that Tony Gilroy has come aboard the project, signing on this spring to offer notes on the first »

A new report offers the best peek yet at the truth of the 'Rogue One' reshoots

3 June 2016 6:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When the first rumors about the reshoots on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story broke, I reached out to people close to the film, and I got back a general “It’s not a giant deal.” I didn’t get much else because the people I know who are close to the film, even the ones I’ve known for a long time, are very careful. Star Wars inspires a certain degree of protectiveness. Many of the people working on the film at all levels are life-long fans of the franchise, and the last thing they want to do is burn a bridge or do something that’s going to hurt the series. While I was skeptical of the most panicked reports (this one on Making Star Wars struck me as particularly off-base and hyperbolic, no matter what sort of track record Jason Ward has), something was apparently happening.

Oh dear, it really doesn’t seem to be a very good week for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It all began when news surfaced that the film would be undergoing reshoots as Disney had issues with the first cut. Of course, that sent the internet into a frenzy, with many people concerned that Gareth Edwards’ film was having problems. The studio soon cleared up the confusion though by announcing that the reshoots were simply to make room for a “special cameo.”

After that, everyone calmed down and went on with their business until last night we heard that the whole situation might be a lot more serious than we first thought, as 40% of the film needed to be reshot and Christopher McQuarrie was being brought on board to assist. This morning, however, McQuarrie shot down those rumors and again, »

Writers Guild Pushes for Diversity Tax Credit in New York

9 May 2016 3:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Writers Guild of America East has asked New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to support providing diversity production credits for TV shows.

The legislation would expand the state’s incentive program to include credits for shows that include writers and directors who are women or people of color.

The WGA East delivered nearly 500 letters to the governor Monday — with high profile signers such as Tina Fey and “Spotlight” writer-director Tom McCarthy — in support of proposed legislation that would designate $5 million of the $420 million Empire State Film Production Tax Credit for productions that hire female or minority writers or directors. It would be the first time a film state tax credit has included a diversity clause.

Signers included “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” scribe Michael Arndt; David Simon (“The Wire”); Robert Carlock (“The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”); “Goodfellas” author-screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi; Sarah Treem (“The Affair”), Michael H. Weber (“The Fault in Our Stars »

The Bourne Identity: the battle to make the first film

26 April 2016 9:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




It was the spy thriller that revitalised the genre. But the production of 2002’s The Bourne Identity was far from an easy one...

Like so many budding filmmakers of his generation, Doug Liman got his start in movies by fiddling with his father's Super 8 camera. Then aged eight, Liman "Picked it up, started making movies with it, and never stopped."

By the time he'd reached his early 30s, Liman's ambitions had finally paid off. His films Swingers and Go, released in 1996 and 1999, were made cheaply and recouped healthy profits. Urgent and effervescently told, they were the product of a young, talented filmmaker on the rise. Liman's rising profile soon saw him land the kind of deal that a few dozen other hopefuls would have sold their souls for - Universal signed him up to make a film based on Robert Ludlum's spy thriller, The Bourne Identity. »

Re-Bourne: Jason Bourne and the post-Snowden world

Tony Black on Matt Damon’s return as Jason Bourne in the post-Snowden world…

Nobody thought Jason Bourne was gone forever. Not even when Tony Gilroy’s misjudged The Bourne Legacy attempted to relaunch the franchise, sans Bourne himself, did people truly believe we’d seen the last of probably the greatest cinematic super spy of the modern age. The trailer for Jason Bourne landed this week, the brand new fifth film in the franchise which sees Matt Damon return in the titular role (stripped back to just the name, a la Jack Ryan or Jack Reacher), and most excitingly of all paired with director Paul Greengrass who took the already impressive work of Doug Liman on The Bourne Identity and built on it wonderfully with The Bourne Supremacy (still the best one) and The Bourne Ultimatum. After the open-ended conclusion to that film, ending the trilogy of Bourne coming »
