The Lobster [pictured] is presented as case study in co-production market.
The sixth edition of the Les Arcs European Film Festival turned its focus on Ireland with an aim to celebrate its cinematic beauty and history, and in turn, its filmic opportunities.
While the festival’s co-founders Guillaume Calop and Pierre-Emmanuel Fleurantin mentioned in an opening statement that this year had seen a persistent crisis within the European Union (EU) and a loss of confidence in its benefits, Geraldine Byrne Nason (Ambassador of Ireland to France) commented that “things were looking up for Ireland, and that the festival had clearly captured the essence of arts and culture that is very important for the EU.”
The festival’s ‘Irish Focus’ programming included 14 films, including older favourites such as John Crowley’s Intermission, Jim Sheridan’s In the Name of the Father and Neil Jordan’s Michael Collins to more recent movies like John Carney’s Once, Alicia Duffy’s [link »
According to El Mayimbe from Latin-Review, Universal Pictures is looking to develop another big screen adaptation of the classic 1980s series Miami Vice. The studio is supposedly already out meeting with screenwriters and taking pitches for the project, which they want to turn into a franchise.
In 2006 Michael Mann made a Miami Vice movie that in no way represented the original series in any way, shape, or form. I like a lot of Mann's films, but his adaptation of Miami Vice with Jamie Foxx and Colin Farrell isn’t one of them.
The NBC crime drama series was created by Anthony Yerkovich and was actually produced by Mann. The show ran for five seasons from 1984–1989, and it starred Don Johnson as James “Sonny” Crockett and Philip Michael Thomas as Ricardo “Rico” Tubbs. They were two Metro Police detectives working undercover in Miami.

If it were up to us, every season would be TV season. No more 10, 16, or 22-episode batches at a time - just 52 blissful weeks of new content from our favorite shows. But, alas, that's not how it works. We can pretend that the wait just makes us appreciate the shows more when they air, but in this world of instant gratification it really just makes us impatient. Here are 15 shows we're particularly excited/impatient/desperate to see return or premiere in 2015.
The first season of "The Walking Dead" only had six episodes, so we should be grateful to get eight episodes of Season 5 from October-November 2014 and eight more again when Twd returns from February-March. Plus, there's a "companion series" coming at some point in 2015 as well. And we are grateful - when we're not whining about the wait. How will Maggie Greene, Daryl Dixon and company react »

According to a Latino Review’s Umberto Gonzalez, Universal Pictures is contemplating a full big-screen reboot of Miami Vice, the fan-favourite ’80s detective show with big action and even bigger hair.
Lil’ Twitter Scoop: Universal is rebooting Miami Vice & are out to writers for takes. Thoughts?

The rumor comes almost eight years after the studio brought Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs to the silver screen with Michael Mann’s somewhat underwhelming rendition, which pulled in a meagre $200 million at the box office off the back of an expensive and indeed troubled production. In fact, Mann’s budget ballooned to $135 million when a powerful storm damaged the tropical set and subsequently delayed filming.
Details are currently scarce on the ground for this most recent reboot, and there’s no word on whether Mann — who executive produced the original show back in the 80s, where it ran for »

Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig are fantastic as estranged twins with a family history of depression. After a failed suicide attempt, Milo (Hader) goes to live with Maggie (Wiig) and her Golden Retriever-like husband, Lance (Luke Wilson). Although Maggie's life looks perfect from the outside, she's got just as many self-destructive secrets at Milo. Sweet and sad, this is definitely Wiig's best dramatic role to date.
Tina Fey and Jason Bateman lead an impressive ensemble cast in this dramedy about a family forced together for their father's funeral, and the seven days of mourning customary known as sitting shiva in the Jewish tradition. Jane Fonda, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Kathryn Hahn, Ben Schwartz, »

Just eight years after Universal Pictures brought Miami Vice to the big screen, the studio is currently developing yet another reboot, and is currently seeking screenwriters for the project. The news comes from Latino Review's El Mayimbe, although no further details are given. It isn't known if Michael Mann, who directed the 2006 remake and served as an executive producer on the original Miami Vice TV series, will be involved with this new take.
The 2006 Miami Vice remake only took in $63 million domestic during its theatrical run, but earned $163.5 million worldwide, from a $135 million budget. Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx starred as Crockett and Tubbs, originally played by Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas in the TV series, which ran from 1984 to 1990. It remains to be seen how this version will be different (or similar) to the previous two incarnations, or how long this may take to get off the ground, »
