‘Right Stuff’ Helmer Philip Kaufman to Receive Camerimage Award

24 October 2014 6:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Writer-director Philip Kaufman, whose credits include “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” and “The Right Stuff,” will receive a lifetime achievement award for directing at Camerimage, a film festival that celebrates the art of cinematography.

The award recognizes filmmakers who have “changed the way movies are made with their creativity, visual skills and passion for their craft,” the fest said. “Kaufman is an artist who is not afraid to supplement genre features with deeper analyses of the human condition,” it added.

His first screenplay and directorial debut was the comedy “Goldstein,” which shared the Cannes Film Festival Prix de la Nouvelle Critique with Bernardo Bertolucci’s “Prima Della Rivoluzione” in 1964.

Next up was comedy “Fearless Frank,” which featured a comic-book hero played by Jon Voight, and revisionist Western “The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid,” starring Robert Duvall as Jesse James.

Drama “The White Dawn” marked Kaufman’s first collaboration with the cinematographer Michael Chapman. »

Lifetime Plans "Clan of the Cave Bear" Series

9 July 2014 7:01 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Lifetime has ordered a pilot for a new film adaptation of Jean M. Auel's best-selling novel series "The Clan of the Cave Bear".

Imagine Entertainment's Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo will team with Auel, "Hunger Games" producer Allison Shearmur and "Maleficent" writer Linda Woolverton on the project which Fox 21 and Lionsgate will also co-produce.

The ambitious effort is Lifetime's latest attempt to push into high-end scripted drama. It's a costly risk, but it comes with an in-built audience as the six-book series has sold more than 60 million copies globally.

Set 25,000 years ago when Neanderthals shared the Earth with the first early modern humans, a group of cave dwellers adopt a blond, blue-eyed young girl named Ayla who matures into a young woman and must fight for survival against the jealous bigotry.

Daryl Hannah and James Remar starred in a 1986 film adaptation by Scorsese cinematographer turned director Michael Chapman. »

Martin Scorsese looks at the changing face of Oscar season over four decades

25 February 2014 7:20 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For years, the Oscars and Martin Scorsese just didn't seem to jibe. His films didn't resonate with that crowd. Maybe it was because he was an outsider. Maybe it was because he didn't trade in the breed of films that typically found footing with the Academy. Whatever the case, it became, for decades, a consistent note: How does Martin Scorsese not have an Oscar? Things began to change nearly three decades into his career. Until 2002, a Scorsese film registering with the group was not nearly the consistent occurrence it is today. Yet since "Gangs of New York," four of his last five films Have received Best Picture nominations and he finds himself a perennial fixture on the Oscar circuit, a circuit he has seen change drastically over the course of his career. With Oscar voting drawing to a close, I spoke with Scorsese recently about that very phenomenon, how zealous »
