Watch: From Tarantino to Cronenberg, Great Directors Talk the Art and Anxiety of Filmmaking

20 April 2015 7:01 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Film4 sits down with great directors including Quentin Tarantino, David Cronenberg, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, James Cameron, Peter Jackson, Ben Wheatley, Steve McQueen, Joe Carnahan and Lone Scherfig to candidly talk the art of filmmaking, where and how they got started, and their fears.  One thing, which is said by Mark Romanek, is true for even the most ruthless of the bunch: "Every director... goes in in the morning terrified that what they're doing is not going to work."

Narco Sub Gains Director Brian Kirk; Zeroes In On Liam Neeson To Star

24 March 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After making his mark on HBO’s Game of Thrones, Brian Kirk has taken the reins on 20th Century Fox’s long-gestating thriller Narco Sub, which is eyeing action star Liam Neeson to take on the lead role.

The title will center on “a notorious Ecuadorian drug lord who forces a disgraced American naval officer to navigate a cocaine-packed submarine past the U.S. Coast Guard,” TheWrap reports.

Though Kirk has already signed on, Neeson is by no means a done deal, sources report. Producers Ridley Scott and Simon Kinberg, who have been with the David Guggenheim-scripted project since its early days, both agree that Neeson is the man for the job, and now they’re moving to lock him in. The project may have to move fast to catch him, however. The veteran actor, whose Oscar-nominated performance in Schindler’s List seemed to guarantee him a long career »

Dye Another Day: Jaume Collet-Serra and Liam Neeson’s Three Colors Trilogy

22 March 2015 6:27 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Solid ground doesn’t exist in the cinema of Jaume Collet-Serra and Liam Neeson. Theirs is an action cinema of distress where the mental instability of each protagonist blurs the boundaries of seemingly tight spatial parameters. Conflict unfolds violently and manipulatively within manmade (and psychological) bubbles, as vast as the multiple boroughs of New York City or as small as the cramped fuselage of a passenger jet. There is no escape, only the desperate and unflinching pursuit of truth, moral direction, and family safety. The bad guys often win, but the good guys always gain closure.Angular compositions and desperate tracking shots populate 2011’s Unknown, 2014’s Non-Stop, and 2015’s Run All Night. Images overlap, tip, ascend and dive to visualize the world as one big box of quick sand. The camera propels through space like a boomerang, challenging logic and defying gravity with reckless abandon. Every step forward brings us »

Mark Millar Teases Nemesis Movie

16 March 2015 3:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mark Millar, creator of Wanted and Kick-Ass, has taken to Facebook to tease fans about another long, long, Long gestating adaptation.

Nemesis has been floating around for years now with various figures attached at different stages, and through a sly post to his social media hub, Millar has kickstarted that craze again.

Post by Mark Millar.

Post by Mark Millar.

For those who are unaware, the comic revolves around a philanthropic billionaire who uses his technological prowess and bags of cash to fight for what’s right! And what’s right to him is pretty much pursuing every violent and sordid whim to its fullest, without any regard for who gets in the way of his selfish endeavors. There’s a reason the character has been dubbed “Batman meets the Joker.”

At one stage, Joe Carnahan was incredibly interested in directing. He even penned a script that Millar himself showered with praise. »

From The Creator Of "Kingsman: The Secret Service"

16 March 2015 9:38 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Mark Millar, the creator of "Kick-Ass" and "Kingsman: The Secret Service" has revealed the next film that will be based on one of his comic books:

"Nemesis", the 4-issue Icon comic book series, written by Millar and illustrated by Steve McNiven, will be the next film from a screenplay by Joe Carnahan ("Narc"), that Millar describes as "fantastic."

"...supervillain 'Nemesis' destroys a building in Tokyo, killing a 'Swat' team. In Washington, D.C., the FBI informs metro police 'Chief Inspector Blake Morrow' that Nemesis is targeting him next.

"Morrow has his family put in protective custody, as Nemesis hijacks 'Air Force One' over the District of Columbia, taking the president hostage..."

Directors: Joe Carnahan Leads 'Motorcade,' 'Toy Story 4' Gets A Co-Director & More

13 March 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Joe Carnahan ("Stretch," "The Grey") is revving up the long dormant "Motorcade" for DreamWorks. At one time eyed by Tom Cruise, and a few years ago slated to star Ryan Reynolds, with a script from Billy Ray (indeed, his is the most recent draft), the thriller has a bunch of terrorists attacking the President's motorcade during a trip to Los Angeles. Four-wheel Drive Down! We'll see if Carnahan will finally be the guy to get this movie off the ground. [Variety] John Lasseter won't be going it alone with "Toy Story 4." Pixar veteran Josh Cooley, who has credits on "The Incredibles," "Cars," "Ratatouille," and "Up," has graduated to the co-director's chair on the sequel. There's no word yet on plot details, except that it will be a "romantic comedy" and not tied to the original trilogy.

Joe Carnahan is Taking 'Motorcade' for a Spin Over at DreamWorks

12 March 2015 7:12 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Right around the time that I started writing here at FirstShowing in 2009, there was a project called Motorcade in the works. At the time, Ryan Reynolds had just been brought in to replace Tom Cruise in the project, and "24" executive producer Jon Cassar was replacing Len Wiseman in the director's chair. But it's been over five years since that news surfaced, and the project has been dead in the water. But today it has new life as Deadline reports DreamWorks is bringing in Smokin' Aces, The Grey and The A-Team director Joe Carnahan to get the project in gear and finally get it into production. So what's this film about again? Motorcade follows a disgraced Secret Service agent who happens to be in the wrong place at the right time when the president's motorcade is commandeered by terrorists in New York in an effort to kidnap the world leader.

Joe Carnahan To Helm "Motorcase"

12 March 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

DreamWorks has set Joe Carnahan ("The Grey," "Narc") to write and direct their long-gestating action thriller "Motorcade".

The story deals with a terrorist attack on the U.S. President's motorcade as he travels through Los Angeles, and was originally pitched back in 2004 by Hans Bauer and Craig Mitchell.

Several other high-profile names have been linked to the project in the past including Tom Cruise and Len Wiseman. Billy Ray previously took at shot at the script which shifted the original pitch's action from New York to Los Angeles.

It's unclear what changes Carnahan's version will employ just yet. Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald will executive produce.

Joe Carnahan Is Going To Terrorize The President

12 March 2015 3:07 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Joe Carnahan, one of the most ballsy directors doing his thing at the minute, has decided on his next project after hitting so many stumbling blocks on getting his last movie, Stretch, distributed. Motorcade will see Carnahan return to directing for a studio, namely Dreamworks, in a movie that was probably pitched as Olympus Has Fallen on wheels. When Potus is attacked as he makes his way across Los Angeles, the only person who can save him is a disgraced former Secret Service agent (naturally) who is in the wrong place at the right time. Carnahan's CV suggest he's perfect for this, considering the vehicular mayhem in Stretch, The A-Team and the all out action of Smokin' Aces. If it were up to me I'd throw all of the budget at getting The Rock on board and push for a hard 18's proper action movie. Let us know who you »

Joe Carnahan Will Conduct DreamWorks’ Motorcade

11 March 2015 7:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Joe Carnahan has been tapped to write and direct Motorcade for DreamWorks, a project that the studio has had in the works for over a decade.

The thriller will center on a Secret Service agent who fails to stop a deadly and vicious attack on the President of the United States as he rides in a motorcade.

Hans Bauer and Craig Mitchell originally pitched the pic to DreamWorks back in 2004, and the studio picked it up for a modest sum. Over the years, writers Ehren Kruger, Billy Ray and Robert Rodat have all circled for rewrites, and Jon Cassar was at one point attached to direct, but somehow Motorcade has yet to be made. Carnahan, though, is expected to take it on as his next project.

The helmer last made comic thriller Stretch, starring Patrick Wilson, for Blumhouse, which eventually tabled its release and quietly sent it on to Netflix, »

Joe Carnahan Will Direct 'Motorcade' for DreamWorks

11 March 2015 7:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After languishing in development for more than a decade, DreamWorks is finally moving forward with their thriller Motorcade, bringing on Joe Carnahan to write the script and direct. The story follows a terrorist attack on the U.S. President's motorcade as he travels through Los Angeles. We first reported on the project back in November 2004, when DreamWorks picked up the pitch from writers Hans Bauer and Craig Mitchell (Highwaymen).

The project has attracted plenty of top-notch talent throughout the years, with Tom Cruise being eyed to star at one point, and filmmakers such as Jon Cassar and Len Wiseman circling the project as well. The story was previously set in New York City, but the most recent version of the script by Billy Ray is set in L.A. No further story details were given at this time.

Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald will executive produce, although no production schedule was given. »

Joe Carnahan Set to Direct One Time Possible Tom Cruise Starrer 'Motorcade'

11 March 2015 4:14 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Before Tom Cruise decided to star in Knight & Day for James Mangold he was considering several projects. One was The Tourist, which Johnny Depp ultimately took, another was The Matarese Circle, which would have put him alongside Denzel Washington with David Cronenberg directing and the other was Motorcade, a thriller that was, at the time, to be directed by Len Wiseman, who instead went on to direct the Total Recall reboot. Looking at those options, it seems Cruise made the best choice for the time, but Motorcade never really died and Dreamworks is now ready to bring it back to life. It was just announced Joe Carnahan has been brought aboard to direct the thriller which pits the U.S. president against terrorists who commandeer his motorcade on the streets of Los Angeles and Carnahan is bringing along his Smokin' Aces star Ryan Reynolds to play a disgraced Secret Service »

Joe Carnahan Set To Drive Motorcade

11 March 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Coming off issues getting his insane action comedy Stretch out into the world (and having more success producing and directing TV shows), Joe Carnahan is adding another studio film to his list of potential movies. According to Variety, he’s now made a deal to direct Motorcade for DreamWorks.The plot for the high concept thriller finds a disgraced Secret Service agent in the right place at the right time when terrorists attack the Us President’s motorcade in Los Angeles. Though it sounds like someone watched Olympus Has Fallen and thought, ‘hhhm… I wonder if we could do that… But in a car!’ Motorcade has actually been stalled in development for years, going through various different versions since at least 2008. At one point, Tom Cruise was attached to star, and Ryan Reynolds briefly flirted with the idea back in 2009. But producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald have stayed the »
