Carell, Kaufman Team On "Iq 83"

2 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Charlie Kaufman has signed to do a page one rewrite of the film adaptation of Arthur Herzog's classic 1978 science fiction novel "I.Q. 83" at Paramount Pictures.

The project is being developed as a star vehicle for Steve Carell who would play Dr. James Healey, the leader of a group of scientists that conducted DNA experiments that unleashed an airborne virus that ravages the populous.

The affliction progressively lowers the Iq of the afflicted, and a race against time begins as scientists struggle for a cure, even as they rapidly grow dumber.

Though written as serious science fiction, the film adaptation plans a "Doctor Strangelove"-style scathing satire. Andrew Lazar and Walter Parkes are producing the project which won't set a director until Kaufman's done the script.

Kaufman is just the latest to attempt the script, the project has been in development for almost two decades with several scribes having »

Steve Carell And Charlie Kaufman Team For 'Dr. Strangelove'-Esque Satire 'I.Q. 83'

3 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the great, unrealized movies of the past few years (and one we really hope, but also doubt, will ever get made) is Charlie Kaufman's ambitious, Hollywood skewering, comedy/musical, "Frank Or Francis." But one of the proposed stars of that film is teaming with Kaufman on another project. Deadline reports that Steve Carell will star in "I.Q. 83," with the movie getting a page one rewrite from Kaufman, and for now, there's no word if he'll also direct or not. It's a sci-fi movie with a premise that's right up Kaufman's alley, following a viral outbreak that renders those afflicted with a rapidly decreasing I.Q. — including the scientist tasked with finding a cure. It's based on the book by Arthur Herzog, here's the synopsis from Amazon:  That was before the DNA experiments. Before the accident you said could never happen… Since then you have felt your »

Charlie Kaufman to Rewrite Iq 83 for Steve Carell to Star

3 hours ago | | See recent news »

It looks like Charlie Kaufman and Steve Carell may work together after all.  Carell was originally set to star in the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind scribe’s excellent-sounding musical Frank or Francis, but the feature was postponed due to lack of financing.  He then turned his attention to the FX pilot How and Why, only to see the network pass on picking it up to series earlier this year.  Now Kaufman has been tapped to rewrite a star vehicle for Carell, and it sounds kind of great.  The Adaptation. and Being John Malkovich screenwriter will pen an adaptation of Arthur Herzog’s science-fiction novel Iq 83, which revolves around the outbreak of a disease that is slowly making everyone dumber.  More after the jump. Deadline reports that Paramount has hired Kaufman to do a page one rewrite of Iq 83, which is being developed as a star vehicle for Carell. »

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Foxcatcher, 2014.

Directed by Bennett Miller.

Starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, Anthony Michael Hall and Vanessa Redgrave.


Based on the true story of Mark Schultz, an Olympic wrestler whose relationship with sponsor John du Pont and brother Dave Schultz would lead to unlikely circumstances.

His extraordinary work on Capote and Moneyball has lifted him in amongst a handful of film maestro’s that has made him a magnet for talent. And three years after his jaunt into the worlds of baseball, he is back with Foxcatcher, a film with a huge weight of expectation after a six-minute standing ovation at this year’s Cannes.

New Foxcatcher Images Reveal The Dark Side Of Wrestling

13 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While I am still not over the idea of Hollywood’s nice guy Steve Carell playing a obsessive psychopath, there are apparently other things going on in Bennett Miller’s dark drama Foxcatcher. There’s Channing Tatum, of course, playing Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz, and Mark Ruffalo as his brother Dave. Then there’s the complicated relationship that develops between the Schultz brothers and John du Pont (Carell), as the latter helps them train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new training facility on his estate. As the three men interact, obsession, power, and paranoia begin to take over, and du Pont’s increasingly erratic and disturbing behavior threatens to drive a rift between the brothers. Exciting stuff, made all the more so when you realize that it’s based on a true story.

You can just feel the menace and alienation in a new batch of images from Foxcatcher. »

Steve Carell Reveals Jennifer Garner's Guilty Pleasure at 'Elle' Women in Hollywood Awards

21 October 2014 6:44 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jennifer Garner's guilty pleasure probably matches up with a lot of people's.

Et went inside the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards where Steve Carell sprung a delicious surprise on his Alexander and Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day co-star Jennifer Garner.

Prior to introducing Garner, who was one of this year's honorees, Carell revealed a fun fact about the Golden Globe winner.

News: Mindy Kaling on Elle Cover Controversy

"Jen Garner really, really loves pizza," Carell said before having pizzas delivered to every table at the event.

Garner couldn't resist taking a slice and even brought one up with her to the podium.

"I wasn't eating pizza when I was dressed in lingerie was I?" Garner said in between bites.

Along with Garner, the award show also honored Jessica Lange, Brie Larson, Elizabeth Banks, Annette Bening, Tina Fey, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Zoe Saldana.

Oscars: Supporting Actor Race Filled with Uncertainty

21 October 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With this year’s lead actor race heating up to be one of the most crowded ever, it’s a little strange to look over candidates for supporting actor and see a lot of empty space.

Which is not to say there aren’t some amazing performances in the mix. J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”), Mark Ruffalo (“Foxcatcher”) and Edward Norton (“Birdman”) are considered locks for a nod, and all are outstanding in wildly different and breathtaking performances.

Beyond that, there are a lot of great performances but few sure things. Ethan Hawke delivers beautifully subtle work in the beloved “Boyhood,” and seems a good bet to land his second acting nomination. Robert Duvall’s name has been bandied about for “The Judge,” but that has more to do with him being Robert Duvall than praise for the performance. The rest is attributed to movies that have yet to screen or truly build buzz. »

New Foxcatcher Images Highlight the Quiet Intensity of Bennett Miller’s Dark Drama

21 October 2014 12:53 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

A batch of new Foxcatcher images have landed online from director Bennett Miller’s (Capote) upcoming dark drama, and they do an excellent job of evoking the tone of the film.  Steve Carell stars as John du Pont, an eccentric millionaire who decided to host an Olympic Wrestling training camp on his grounds despite having no experience with the sport himself.  The crux of the film revolves around du Pont’s relationship with Olympic Champion brothers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), and in particular du Pont’s mentorship of the younger brother Mark, who lived in the shadow of his more successful brother.  I caught the film at Tiff and it’s magnificent.  The performances by Carell, Tatum, and Ruffalo are positively transcendent, as each actor wholly disappears into his role.  Don’t miss this one, folks. Hit the jump to take a look at the new Foxcatcher images, »

2015 Oscars: An Updated Best Actor Prediction Snap Shot

20 October 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Three spots in the 2015 Oscars Best Actor race are pretty much locked up. Those would be Michael Keaton (Birdman), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game) and Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything). In my opinion, that's also the order of their likelihood of winning... right now. The two other slots aren't so easy to figure with so much left to be seen. Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) seems a strong contender though I'm not as sure about his chances as much as some others are, largely because of the competition he faces. His chances remain high, though, which is why he occupies my #4 slot for now. In fifth I had Jack O'Connell (Unbroken), but there's a little movie on the rise right now you may have heard of and hopefully seen (or intend to see) called Whiplash and not only is the film securing itself a spot in the Best Picture ranks, but »

Foxcatcher review: Steve Carell and Channing Tatum's chilling drama

20 October 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Bennett Miller; Screenwriter: E Max Frye, Dan Futterman; Starring: Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller; Running time: 134 mins; Certificate: 15

Money can't buy you love, but can it earn you self-validation? It's a theme that's explored in the fascinating Foxcatcher, an involving tale based on a chilling true story that boasts enthralling, career-changing performances from Channing Tatum and Steve Carell.

Directed with great measure and restraint by Moneyball's Bennett Miller, Foxcatcher revolves around depressed Olympic wrestling champion Mark Schultz (Tatum) and his relationship with mega-wealthy loner John Du Pont (Carell). It's John's dream to put together a wrestling team to compete in the next Olympics and he manages to recruit Mark, although his brother and fellow wrestler Dave (Mark Ruffalo) proves harder to catch.

As the relationship between the trio develops, often in unhealthy ways, we're gripped by what John's underlying motivations for his apparent altruism might be. »

Off the Carpet: So let's talk about that crowded Best Actor Oscar race

19 October 2014 11:04 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Let's start with a broad assessment that may or may not be true, but can be taken as close enough for the purposes of this column: there are four Best Actor slots spoken for. What are they? Steve Carell in "Foxcatcher," Benedict Cumberbatch in "The Imitation Game," Michael Keaton in "Birdman" and Eddie Redmayne in "The Theory of Everything." Only one of those films, mind you, has opened and screened for the Academy ("Birdman"). But if I were a betting man, I'd say that quartet is secure. So who slides in besides? First and foremost, we've been in this place at least since the Toronto Film Festival, when Cumberbatch further solidified himself after "The Imitation Game" debuted at Telluride and Redmayne jumped onto the scene as part of a new wave of contenders that included "Nightcrawler's" Jake Gyllenhaal and "St. Vincent's" Bill Murray. But as one of the »

Brad Pitt’s Fury Beats Gone Girl Over a Weak Box-Office Weekend

19 October 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In a tepid weekend for the box office, Brad Pitt's World War II epic, Fury, claimed the top spot with $23.5 million, beating back Gone Girl, which brought in $17.8 million for a domestic total of $107 million. Other new releases also had lackluster performances, with the animated The Book of Life bringing in $17 million for third and the Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Best of Me barely coming in fifth with $10.2 million. Steve Carell's family comedy, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, stuck around in fourth with $12 million. More exciting were the films that opened in limited release: Michael Keaton's meta-comeback film Birdman brought in more than $400,000 in just four theaters for the second highest per-screen average this year behind The Grand Budapest Hotel. Justin Simien's buzzy debut film, Dear White People, also connected with audiences, earning $344,000 for a PSA of $31,273. »
