1 hour ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Lake Bell Takes The Reins On The Emperor’s Children

27 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following the well-deserved critical and financial success of her feature-length directorial debut In A World…, it seems that multi-hyphenate Lake Bell has joined the ranks of in-demand directors. She will next step behind the camera for The Emperor’s Children – an adaptation of the 2006 novel of the same name, by American author Claire Messud.

The book, which was long-listed for the Man Booker Prize in 2006, follows three privileged and educated friends living in Manhattan in the months before the devastating terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. Despite their advantageous positions, each of them struggles to achieve in the face of the excessive expectations placed upon them. The book is being adapted for the screen by Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha) and, though Baumbach was once rumoured to be taking the director’s chair as well, that seat will now be filled by Bell.

The adaptation will be produced by Brian Grazer and »

Lake Bell Will Direct Long-in-the-Making ‘Emperor’s Children’ Film, Which Is Awesome

27 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This is dream team stuff, people. The Wrap reports that actress/writer/director Lake Bell has been tapped to direct the big screen adaptation of Claire Messud‘s Man Booker Prize listed bestselling novel “The Emperor’s Children.” Bell will direct from Noah Baumbach‘s script, which has basically just been sitting around for whole years waiting for someone to make it into a real movie. Set in New York City just before and after 9/11, the novel centers on a trio of Brown University pals (who maybe don’t like each other as much as they should) who are just trying to make their way (often, their very misguided way) around life in the big city. The events of 9/11 change that, of course, and the novel is an unsentimental look at how we experience tragedy, especially the wide-ranging and extremely unexpected kind (as the pages tick by and the days move forward and the inevitability of what »

Lake Bell To Direct Noah Baumbach Penned 'The Emperor's Children'

27 August 2014 6:08 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Lake Bell broke out in a big way last year with her directorial debut “In A World…” in which she dealt with Hollywood sexism via the very small world of voiceover artists. It was very funny and we were big fans, calling it “a low key charmer” in our review. Now, Bell has chosen a followup that involves some serious pedigree. THR reports the actor-turned-director will direct an adaptation of Claire Messud’s “The Emperor’s Children.” If Messud’s novel, which focuses on “three entitled but unsuccessful late twentysomethings who orbit the life of a famous journalist in the months before and after the events of 9/11,” sounds familiar, it’s because Noah Baumbach had penned a draft and was planning on directing an adaptation in the summer of 2010 with Keira Knightley, Eric Bana and Richard Gere attached to star. Unfortunately, financing didn't come through and in 2011, “Crazy Heart” director Scott Cooper jumped. »

Lake Bell Rounds Up The Emperor's Children

26 August 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

After making a successful move into directing with voice-over comedy In A World… Lake Bell has tracked down a follow-up. She’s now on board to make the adaptation of Claire Messud’s novel The Emperor’s Children for Imagine.Messud’s book, unusually for a title in development, hit shelves way back in 2007. The story follows three Brown College graduates in their late 20s looking ahead to their lives with no little trepidation. The story takes place a few months before and then a few months after 9/11 in New York.Noah Baumbach was attached back in 2010, wrote a script and was in the process of looking for a cast, with Keira Knightley, Richard Gere and Eric Bana all mooted. Bell may give the screenplay her own spin, or she may decide to direct it as is, but it remains to be seen if she’ll push it closer to the screen than Baumbach managed. »

Digital Spy rounds up nine films worth watching on TV today.

1. Beethoven - 9.25am, ITV2

Deliver Us From Evil Review

23 August 2014 2:42 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Proclaiming your newest horror movie is based on true life events isn't anything new for movie studios, to my mind it reaches back to 1979's The Amityville Horror, but with the recent run of 'based on real life events' horror movies, including The Conjuring and The Quiet Ones, I for one am getting sick of getting hit over the head with this trend. The latest movie to proudly proclaim the spooky goings on you see are rooted in the real life is Deliver Us From Evil, based on New York police officer Ralph Sarchie's (played here by Eric Bana) account of a case where he came face to face with demonic possession. Coming from director Scott Derrickson, who brought us the similary 'based on a true story' The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister (one of the finest horror movies in recent memory in my opinion), Deliver Us From Evil »

Deadline reports that Lin will direct the film from a screenplay by Andrew Dominik.

Deliver Us From Evil, film review:

21 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Deliver Us from Evil is an unholy mishmash of hardboiled cop thriller, Exorcist/Omen-style horror hokum and, most bizarrely, Jim Morrison-inspired psychedelia. The redoubtable Eric Bana plays New York cop Ralph Sarchie with an intensity that rekindles memories of the Sidney Lumet films of the 1970s. The film itself may be silly in the extreme but his performance is in deadly earnest. »

Scott Derrickson interview: Deliver Us From Evil, Deus Ex, reactions

21 August 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The director of Deliver Us From Evil, Scott Derrickson, chats to us about the film, Deus Ex, and horror for kids...

After drumming up decent business in the Us at the start of July, Sinister director Scott Derrickson's latest film, Deliver Us From Evil, is finally in UK cinemas.

Currently on the set of Sinister 2, before he heads off to direct Marvel's Doctor Strange (and you won't be surprised to hear that's a movie that we couldn't explore in this interview), he spared us time for a chat about what he's done, and what he's up to. Without further ado...

Welcome to the world of international staggered release dates! We get Deliver Us From Evil this week in the UK, whereas it had a July 4th weekend release in the Us. It seems to me that it's a more natural fit over here than there.

How much control »

Doctor Who series 8: Deep Breath review

21 August 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A dinosaur, robots, and a new Doctor. What did Simon make of Peter Capaldi's series 8 debut, Deep Breath?

This review contains spoilers. Our spoiler-free review is here.

8.1 Deep Breath

Well, Peter Capaldi is really rather great. It seems logical to start there, as he's top of the list of big, beaming positives in Deep Breath, the starting point for Doctor Who series 8. From the moment he utters the word "shush" to a typically militaristic Strax, there's little doubt that the newly redesigned Tardis - now with books and dinosaur slobber - is in safe hands.

It's too early to call definitely, of course, but on the evidence of the (surprisingly) limited screen time he's given in Deep Breath, Capaldi is the Doctor we wanted him to be. Steeped in the tradition of the older Doctors, from his costume to his demeanour - noting himself that he's not got a »

Deliver Us from Evil movie review: weak spirits

21 August 2014 5:44 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A rote police procedural conducted by a cardboard movie cop investigating a supposedly demonic evil that simply cannot compete with nonsupernatural reality. I’m “biast” (pro): love Eric Bana

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Somebody please get Eric Bana (Lone Survivor) a nice juicy TV role where he can actually create a character worthy of his talent and intense presence, rather than being forced to shuffle — yet again — through another underwritten genre pawn. This time out he’s NYPD sergeant Ralph Sarchie, who falls into teaming up with “undercover” Jesuit priest Mendoza (Édgar Ramírez: The Counsellor) to investigate some weird demonic-possession shit going down in the South Bronx. (This sidelines Sarchie’s goofy partner, Butler [Joel McHale: Blended], though not so much that Butler cannot ultimately fulfill his own genre-pawn purpose.) Talk to any actual »

Deliver Us From Evil

21 August 2014 5:43 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

After Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose, director Scott Derrickson returns to tingle more spines with this supernatural chiller based on the accounts of New York cop-turned-occultist Ralph Sarchie. Eric Bana plays the streetwise officer who is forced to put skepticism aside after making an unholy connection between a series of disturbing calls. Unable to explain what he's seeing, Sarchie hooks up with a young priest (Edgar Ramirez) who convinces him that the offenders are merely the vessels of darker forces »

Deliver Us From Evil Review

21 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Scott Derrickson

Cast: Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Joel McHale, Olivia Munn, Sean Harris, Chris Coy,

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 118 minutes.

Synopsis: NYPD detective Ralph Sarchie (Bana) stumbles across a series of cases which all seem linked. As things appear to become stranger and stranger, Sarchie must confront the fact that perhaps these cases have a supernatural link.

When the trailer for Deliver Us From Evil hit, it came across as a cop procedural with elements of an exorcism film. Fortunately, the film earns its SE7EN meets The Exorcist comparisons by offering up a very tight and sinister film which effortlessly mixes genres throughout.

The first point to discuss concerning Deliver Us From Evil is the age-old “based on a true story” set-up. Cleverly, the film changes this to “based on accounts”, which seems to wash the film’s hands of any responsibility and even opens the door for much unexpected humour. »

Deliver Us From Evil Review

21 August 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It’s another film involving an exorcism; something that writer-director Scott Derrickson is passionate about, having penned and directed none other than The Exorcism of Emily Rose, and the relatively comparable horror Sinister. The problem with dealing with the same supernatural subject matter, is Derrickson gets compared with his last demon-exercising flick, creating a rod for his back in having to up his game. Sadly, it’s not enough in this day and age to throw out the usual moniker “based on a true story” because it currently feels like every scary movie is. However, Derrickson has tried something a little different by blending the cop and horror genres and positioned the ever solid Eric Bana as the lead.

Based on real-life cop/occult investigator Ralph Sarchie’s accounts, Bana is Sarchie, the NYPD cop, too. Things get a whole lot sinister for father-of-one Sarchie after a dead baby is »

Deliver Us From Evil review

19 August 2014 12:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From the director of Sinister comes Deliver Us From Evil, starring Eric Bana. Here's Simon's review of a solid supernatural thriller...

Director Scott Derrickson likes his horror movies. His latest film, Deliver Us From Evil, isn't strictly an outright horror, yet it builds on his success with Sinister, and makes unhidden gesticulations in the direction of The Exorcist for a start. But this isn't a tribute act, as instead, he's uncovered a story inspired by a real life account, which he's subsequently shaped into an interesting, bumpy, but generally effective piece of cinema.

It centres on Eric Bana's Sergeant Ralph Sarchie, a New York cop who's had his fair share of dark days. Married to the job, but with a wife and child back home, Sarchie finds himself called to investigate an event you could best describe as not normal. Along with his partner, played by Community's Joel McHale, »

Deliver Us From Evil Blu-ray to Deliver Scares This Halloween

18 August 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Demonic possession is no laughing matter in Deliver Us From Evil, the 2014 horror thriller from director Scott Derrickson that is based on accounts from an actual NYPD sergeant. Deliver Us From Evil is next headed to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on an October 28 release date based on an updated listing at Amazon.com, just in time for Halloween.

Sony produced Deliver Us From Evil starring Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Olivia Munn and Joel McHale for around $30 million and the film has gone to earn that same amount at the domestic box office. Worldwide ticket sales have reached $42.3 million.

I was anticipating Sony Pictures Home Entertainment formally announcing the home video debut of Deliver Us From Evil this morning after the release date appeared on Amazon over the weekend. It looks like the full announcement could take another week or more, and we'll be sure to pass along all the details once its out. »
