Trailers from Hell: Joe Dante on 1958's Low-Budget Chiller 'I Bury the Living'

24 October 2012 9:19 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Pre-Halloween Horrors! week continues at Trailers from Hell, today with director and Tfh creator Joe Dante introducing famed B-director Albert Band's bare-bones chiller "I Bury the Living," starring TV star Richard Boone and Theodore Bikel ("My Fair Lady"). This low budget graveyard chiller was producer-director Albert Band's second outing and remains one of his most accomplished in a prolific career that fostered many films by his sons, producer Charles and composer Richard. Morbid, paranoid and imaginatively directed, it found a small audience on tv over the years but hasn't exactly penetrated the zeitgeist. »

2013 Honorary Oscars Go To Documentarian D.A. Pennebaker, Stuntman/Director Hal Needham & More

6 September 2012 8:38 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In a press release (via Awards Daily), the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced who would be receiving the honorary Oscars at next year's awards ceremony, for both the Governors Awards and the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. On the Governors Awards side of things, Hal Needham, the legendary stunt performer, coordinator and director; documentarian D.A. Pennebaker; and George Stevens Jr., founding director of the American Film Institute, are set to pick up prizes, while executive and philanthropist Jeffrey Katzenberg will receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. Needham has one of those filmographies that we're pretty sure Quentin Tarantino could rattle off from memory – he was a stunt double for actor Richard Boone on the TV show "Have Gun, Will Travel," before training under John Wayne's stunt double and becoming one of the go-to stuntmen of the sixties, appearing in or coordinating the stunts for. »

David Mamet Developing a Reboot of Have Gun Will Travel for CBS

26 August 2012 9:01 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

As big a fan as I am of Westerns, the old TV Westerns from the glory days are pretty hit and miss with me. CBS’ “Have Gun, Will Travel” was one of those shows I never saw a single episode of. Besides the fact that it was way, Way before my time — well, that’s pretty much it. I’ve heard of it, of course, and I know what it’s about. I mean, it’s kind of hard to find on TV nowadays unless you have, say, the Western TV Show Channel or something. (That doesn’t actually exist, does it?) Anyways, all that is to say that CBS is gearing up a reboot of one of their more popular Westerns of yesteryear, the Richard Boone fronted “Have Gun, Will Travel”, starring Boone as a wandering mercenary name Paladin in the old west.

Jimmy Kimmel is moving up to the big leagues: Come January 2013, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, which currently airs at 12:35 p.m., will begin airing at 11:35 p.m., head-to-head with NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman.

• Two years after Michael Scott (Steve Carell) left, NBC’s The Office will be shutting its doors for good at the end of the upcoming ninth season.

• And the job for producing ABC’s 85th annual Academy Awards show on February 24, 2013 goes to… Chicago exec producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. (The duo, who have never before worked on an Oscars show, can probably be counted on to bring back the big musical numbers with which the show was long associated.)

CBS and David Mamet Collaborate On Have Gun – Will Travel Reboot

22 August 2012 8:15 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Westerns have been coming back into fashion lately (in fact, they're hotter than a whorehouse on nickel night!), from Deadwood's run a few years ago to the more current Hell On Wheels and Justified, and CBS is looking to get in on the action.  The network has teamed up with David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross)  to create a revival of Have Gun - Will Travel, which originally aired on CBS from 1957-63. Have Gun, which ran for six seasons, was a huge ratings success for CBS, solidifying Richard Boone (who played Paladin) as a star, and also spawned a popular radio show.  If the reboot goes to series, it will go alongside Vegas, another CBS Western starring Dennis Quaid (The Day After Tomorrow) and Michael Chiklis (The Shield). For more on the series and why it's likely to be a helluva hog-killin' good time, hit the jump. CBS joins other broadcast networks in developing Westerns, »

Mamet To Reboot "Have Gun Will Travel"

21 August 2012 8:43 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

CBS is developing a reboot of its late 50's/early 60's western series "Have Gun - Will Travel" says Deadline. David Mamet will write and direct the potential pilot, and will executive produce the series with Elliott Webb.

Richard Boone starred in the original series as 'Paladin', a top-notch gunfighter who preferred to settle problems without violence but stood his ground when provoked.

The original series spawned a successful radio version and one of the main writers was Gene Roddenberry, the man who went on to create "Star Trek".

Mamet previously worked with CBS on his only TV series to date - the military drama "The Unit".

CBS tried to reboot another late 50's western, "The Rifleman", last year. That project however never made it to pilot. »

Hope you're hungry, because we have a heaping helping of TV Snacks today. Enjoy 'em while they're hot!

Dallas Roberts ("The Good Wife," "Rubicon") is joining "The Walking Dead" as Milton, who, unlike most of the characters inspired by Robert Kirkman's comics, is wholly original to the TV series. "Milton is the details guy," Kirkman tells EW, "[who] works with the Governor...He's not exactly a scientist, but he's a smart guy that is trying to find out how zombies behave. Watching him do his little experiments is going to be a lot of fun." [EW]

Our favorite serial killer reunites with his long-lost stepchildren -- Astor anyway -- in the second half of "Dexter's" Season 7. Christina Robinson, who plays Rita's angsty daughter, was photographed with Michael C. Hall filming a beach scene in Los Angeles. "Dexter" returns to Showtime Sept. 30. [The Insider]

David Mamet Rebooting Western Series 'Have Gun - Will Travel' at CBS

21 August 2012 3:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Playwright, Oscar-nominated screenwriter, essayist and occasional angry person David Mamet has a new TV project in the works. According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS has made a script deal with Mamet for a reboot of the 1957-1963 Western "Have Gun - Will Travel." The original series was created by Sam Rolfe and Herb Meadow and starred Richard Boone as the San Francisco gunfighter Paladin, who had high-class taste but was still a total badass despite a slightly frou-frou taste for chess symbolism. "Have Gun - Will Travel" ran for 225 episodes, one of which was written by Sam Peckinpah, and 24 of which were written by "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry. A potential movie remake has been bouncing around in development for a while, first with John Travolta attached to star and later Eminem. Mamet will serve as writer and executive producer on the reboot, and he'll direct a pilot if one's ordered. »

DVD Playhouse--August 2012

1 August 2012 1:11 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Allen Gardner

A Separation (Sony) This drama from Iran won the 2011 Best Foreign Film Oscar, telling the story of a couple who file for a legal separation, with the wife pushing for a divorce. He won’t leave his Alzheimer’s-afflicted father behind, while she is wanting to take their young daughter with her to the United States. After a series of misunderstandings, threats and legal actions, the couple find that there is more than just their marriage that’s on the line. Hyper-realistic to a fault, reminiscent of the neo-realist films that came out of post-ww II Europe, but also repressive and redundant in the extreme, with the characters seeming to throw the same temper tantrum for two hours straight while the story, meanwhile, seems stalled. Wildly overpraised film is a real litmus test, with viewers seeming to be staunch defenders or equally impassioned detractors. It did win an Oscar, »

How we made ... Michael Phillips and David S Ward on The Sting

5 June 2012 4:39 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The producer and screenwriter of the 1973 film that paired up Robert Redford and Paul Newman as 1930s con men

Michael Phillips, producer

One day in 1971, the producer Tony Bill rang me, very excited, saying he had just met a film school graduate called David S Ward. This guy had an idea for a film about confidence men. David refused to reveal the ending: he wanted this scene to be a con on the audience. My wife and I, who had formed a company with Bill in La, loved it.

Ward didn't finish the script until 1972, but it was the finest screenplay I had ever read. Suddenly we had several studios competing to shoot it, and the best director around, George Roy Hill, wanting to take charge. Hill, who had made Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, was able to recruit Robert Redford to star as Johnny Hooker. »

Universal’s 100 Years – Exclusive Interview With Michael Phillips

4 June 2012 6:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

As part of Universal’s centennial celebrations they are dusting off some of the more esteemed classics in their back catalogue (and some bizarre titles that would perhaps better be left confined to history), giving them the HD spit and polish treatment and re-releasing them.

One hugely welcome member of the upgrade club is 1973′s The Sting, starring Butch and Sundance (Paul Newman & Robert Redford), directed once again by George Roy Hill. I recently had the great pleasure of interviewing Michael Phillips, who along with his then wife Julia was presented with the Best Film Oscar that year for producing this peerless con film, which was especially enjoyable given his noticeable absence from the raft of special features being rolled out with the newly spruced up Blu-ray. Since it was only his second film as producer (after Steelyard Blues), I started by asking him how he became involved in the project. »

Supporting Actors: The Overlooked and Underrated (part 5 of 5)

30 May 2012 10:08 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Gary Oldman as Jackie Flannery in State Of Grace (Phil Joanou, 1990, USA):

Long considered one of the most talented actors in cinema, it’s very strange that his outstanding acting as the younger brother of Ed Harris’ local crime boss in this underrated film doesn’t get talked about nearly enough when discussing Oldman’s body of work. This is a must-see performance for all Oldman fans. For the record, State Of Grace is a far better Irish mob film than The Departed (Martin Scorsese, 2006, USA), primarily because it contains much better acting across the board. Oldman was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (Tomas Alfredson, 2011, UK/France).

Other notable Gary Oldman performances: Prick Up Your Ears (Stephen Frears, 1987, USA), Dracula (Francis Ford Coppola, 1992, USA), True Romance (Tony Scott, 1993, USA), Leon: The Professional (Luc Besson, 1994, France), Air Force One (Wolfgang Petersen, 1997, USA), The Contender (Rod Lurie, »

If you’ve hunted around for movie bargains, you’ve probably seen some of Mill Creek Entertainment’s 50-Movie Packs on DVD. Apart from other great releases by Mill Creek, these packs are phenomenal boons to cinephiles looking to collect older titles.

There are three new packs available, and I want to not only let you in on a discount code, but I have one of the packs available for you to win.

I know a lot of people may be quick to overlook these packs, and not every movie included stands out as a major value, but there are some great titles in each of them, and fans of the genres will be pleasantly surprised by what they get out of the deal. I have to admit that there is something about seeing a 50-movie pack, especially when it doesn’t cost a couple of hundred dollars, or more, »
