Exclusive: Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller’s Caliber Media has quietly phased out the majority of its management business and closed its Wilshire Boulevard office as the company and its principals shift focus almost completely toward production. The transition began late this summer, when Caliber’s clients and small staff got word of the impending changeover, and Sonnier and Heller started making calls to help their managers find new homes. Word started circulating in recent weeks as Caliber reps started landing elsewhere around town.
Now headquartered in its New York City office and postproduction hub, the company established in 2008 will focus primarily on producing and financing features like the upcoming horror-Western Bone Tomahawk, starring Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox and Richard Jenkins. Sonnier and Heller are producers on the project, which recently wrapped production in California.

Manhattan becomes ground zero for a deadly viral outbreak and vampire turf war in Season 1 of FX's The Strain, the hit new series from Guillermo Del Toro, Carlton Cuse and Chuck Hogan that will be making its Blu-ray debut on a December 2 release date.
The Strain stars David Bradley, Mía Maestro, Corey Stoll, Kevin Durand, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Jack Kesy, Miguel Gomez, Ben Hyland and Natalie Brown in a story that starts with the delivery of an ancient vampire master to JFK airport aboard a doomed flight, and the subsequent why, how and what's next upon this master's arrival.
The 13-episode first season of The Strain averaged 2.21 million viewers for FX and earned a second season renewal before the first season had fully aired. It's based on the books of the same name by del Toro and Hogan so there's still plenty of source material to work with.
German production company Constantin Film revealed at the Mipcom TV market in Cannes this weekend that they are developing TV show spin-offs for their film franchises Resident Evil and The Mortal Instruments. Here's what Constantin's Martin Moszkowicz had to say in a statement.
"We are moving rapidly. Constantin has a lot of feature film brands and we are moving them into television. For instance, we own the rights to the book series The Mortal Instruments, and we just hired a showrunner in Los Angeles, and our offices in Los Angeles and Canada are starting production next year on at least two or three international shows."
Ed Decter, who most recently produced TV shows such as Unforgettable and The Client List, is reportedly the showrunner attached to The Mortal Instruments, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with production slated to begin sometime next year.
The Mortal Instruments was initially slated to be a feature film franchise, »
Things are definitely going bump in the night in Jack Heller’s new creature feature. A highly anticipated entry in this year’s Screamfest, the foremost horror film festival in the country, “Dark Was the Night” will feature Kevin Durand (“Lost”), Bianca Kajlich (“Rules of Engagement”), Lukas Haas (“Inception”), Nick Damici (“Stake Land”), and a decidedly creepy something lurking in the woods. Previously titled “The Trees,” the script by Tyler Hisel appeared on the 2009 Black List of best unproduced screenplays. That year’s list, compiled and voted on by over 250 film executives, included “The Social Network,” “The Spectacular Now,” and “Prisoners.” Dylan K. Narang, Stefan Nowicki, Dallas Sonnier, and Heller himself began production in 2012, filming in Southampton, N.Y. Hisel’s first produced script is poised to thrill and terrify audiences with its homage to the classic monster genre. The story, which is reportedly—and frightfully—based on true events, »
Conceptual illustrator Dorotka Sapinska worked on designs for Bryan Singer's Superman Returns (2006) and Gavin Hood's X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009). The first set is from Superman Returns and includes various hairstyle designs for Lex Luthor's henchwoman, Kitty Kowalski (played by Parker Posey). Also, tattoo designs for Lex Luthor's henchman that is killed by a paino Jason White (Tristan Lake Leabu), aka Superboy, happens to fling at him. The second set of images were for X-Men Origins: Wolverine and they feature tattoo designs for The Blob/Fred J. Dukes (Kevin Durand) and other mutant characters. He's back. A hero for our millennium. And not a moment too soon, because during the five years (much longer in movie-fan years!) Superman sought his home planet, things changed on his adopted planet. Nations moved on without him. Lois Lane now has a son, a fiance and a Pulitzer for "Why the World »
In a summer of Isis terrorism and Ebola fears, “The Strain” could have hardly been better timed. Initially something of an oddity for FX – a vampires-among-us fantasy, on a network steeped in gritty realism – the adaptation of Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s creation piled on layers of mythology, bounding ahead with new characters and increasingly fantastic situations that, frankly, would have felt less palatable had the show not gradually built up to them. That concluded in Sunday’s action-laden finale, which neatly laid out countless possibilities looking forward to a second season.
That the show concluded its season a week before “The Walking Dead” returns represents an odd form of symmetry, since in many ways, “The Strain” plays like the natural companion to AMC’s runaway hit. If ever a case could be made for networks engineering baseball-like trades – “We’ll give you ‘Halt and Catch Fire,’ and »

From filmmaker Guillermo del Toro and showrunner Carlton Cuse, The Strain was one of the most entertaining shows of the summer, telling the story of an epic battle for survival between man and vampire. When Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), the head of the Center for Disease Control in New York City, and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak that is eerily similar to an ancient and evil strain of vampirism, they quickly realize that they are waging war for the fate of humanity itself. The show also stars David Bradley, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Kevin Durand, Miguel Gomez, Natalie Brown and Jack Kesy. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor David Bradley (who plays Abraham Setrakian, a man of few words who never leaves home without an arsenal and a bad-ass sword that’s perfect for vampire beheadings) talked »

Kevin Durand, who plays Vasiliy Fet on FX's The Strain, recently held a conference call to promote the show's season finale, The Master, where he also revealed that AMC has approached him to play the villainous Negan on The Walking Dead.
Here's what the actor had to say, when asked about different TV shows the fans would like to see him in.
"I've had a lot of people with The Walking Dead talk to me, mentioned that they see me for a character named 'Negan,' but I haven't read the comic."
After The Governor (David Morrissey) was killed off during Season 4's action-packed mid-season finale, many fans wondered if the iconic Negan would finally pop up on the series. Comic book creator and series executive producer Robert Kirkman confirmed in December that the villain would not show up in Season 4, revealing there needs to be some space between The Governor's death and Negan's debut. »
The Walking Dead comic book series have been wondering when and if Negan would appear in the TV show, and it sounds as if it will be sooner rather than later! According to Nuke The Fridge, Kevin Durand revealed that AMC have approached him to play the foul mouthed and sadistic villain in a recent conference call promoting The Strain. The actor is quoted as saying, "I’ve had a lot of people with The Walking Dead talk to me, mentioned that they see me for a character named ‘Negan,’ but I haven’t read the comic." Now, this isn't the most reliable of sites and they're quick to point out that they are the first report this news. Are they twisting his words (after all, it could be that Durand was referring to fans rather than those working on the series) or have they come across a huge scoop? »
Rumors have been swirling that we’ll soon be seeing The Walking Dead arch-villain Negan on AMC’s TV version of the comics, and according to “The Strain’s” Kevin Durand, he could be the one who brings the character to life! Per… Continue Reading →
