Walk of Fame Honoree Brett Ratner Builds Hollywood Production Powerhouse

19 January 2017 10:10 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Brett Ratner and James Packer joined forces to create RatPac Entertainment in late 2012, Hollywood took notice.

Warner Bros. soon got onboard with the company, entering into a co-financing partnership, with RatPac that replaced Legendary as Warner’s key investor. RatPac operates as a production company and financing entity, and has a $450 million deal that covers 75 pictures with Warner Bros. over four years.

“Warner Brothers is the greatest partner anyone could ever have,” Ratner says. “It’s truly a family business there, and I know that sounds weird, because they’re a massive corporation, but you get that vibe with them, starting with Kevin Tsujihara. Warner’s has always been like that, and they still operate like that. It’s a very friendly, encouraging place to make movies. I’m hoping to direct my next picture there.”

And the feeling is mutual. “We’ve known and worked with Brett for years, »

Annabelle 2 Photo Brings the Demon Doll Back from Hell

18 January 2017 7:53 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

She's back! From New Line Cinema comes Annabelle 2, with David F. Sandberg (Lights Out) helming the follow up to 2014's hugely successful Annabelle, which scared up nearly $257 million at the worldwide box office during its run in theaters. The new film is once again being produced by Peter Safran and James Wan, who also partnered so effectively on The Conjuring movies.

Today, we have a new look at dear little Annabelle in a just released photo. She is seen sitting on a bed with Talitha Bateman, who stars as Janice. Janice is obviously concerned that her new playmate is sitting straight up on the bed, looking as mischievous as ever. What did Annabelle do that has poor Ms. Bateman all riled up? We'll have to wait until this summer to find out!

DC’s ‘Green Lantern Corps’ Finds Writers in David Goyer, Justin Rhodes

12 January 2017 10:56 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The DC comic book movie universe keeps expanding at Warner Bros. as the studio has set David Goyer and Justin Rhodes to pen “Green Lantern Corps.” Goyer will also produce through his Phantom Four banner while DC heads Geoff Johns and Jon Berg exec produce along with Phantom Four partner Kevin Turen.

Warner Bros. first tackled “Green Lantern” in the 2011 movie starring Ryan Reynolds as the title character. The film was a disappointment and the studio moved on from the franchise, while Reynolds went on to star in the Marvel movie “Deadpool,” which has since been a massive hit — it’s the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time.

While that 2011 film focused on Hal Jordan (aka Green Lantern), who will also be featured in this upcoming pic, the Corps is expected to be at the center of this one. It has long been rumored that John Stewart, an African-American sniper who joins the Corps, »

DeFaria, whom associates describe as brilliant and very tough-minded on budgets, not only ran animation at Warners, but also had a key role overseeing visual effects across the board. He was credited as an executive producer on Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity and George Miller’s »

AFI Awards: Hollywood Veterans and Newcomers Come Together at Luncheon

6 January 2017 4:47 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Showbiz veterans like Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese, and Denzel Washington mingled with reps of New Hollywood such as Barry Jenkins, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, and Andrew Garfield at the 17th AFI Awards luncheon Friday afternoon at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills.

The mixture of longtime figures and newbies was also reflected in the TV honorees, as NBC (the sole broadcast network repped) was side by side with relative newcomers Netflix and Espn Films, and with TV fare ranging from reliables like “Game of Thrones” to the new “This Is Us” and “Stranger Things.”

AFI announced its 21 honorees last month, with 10 films and 10 TV shows cited as “outstanding creative endeavors” during 2016; there was also one special award, to Espn Films’ “O.J.: Made in America.” The big winners, with three apiece, were Paramount (“Arrival,” “Fences,” and “Silence”), FX (“The Americans,” “Atlanta,” and “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”), and HBO (“Game of Thrones, »

3 January 2017 8:04 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes will walk a tightrope in 2017 as he steers his conglomerate through the political theater of securing federal approval for its planned $85.4 billion merger with At&T.

While that drama unfolds, Bewkes and his top lieutenants also have to make sure Warner Bros., Turner and HBO keep humming along, come what may.

Shortly before the holidays, Bewkes spoke with Variety about how the cultures of Tw and At&T will mesh, the prospect of net neutrality rules going away, and the recent executive shakeup in Warner Bros.’ film unit.
