Finally Some News on Kathryn Bigelow's Next Movie

9 March 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

For the longest time it seemed like Kathryn Bigelow's next film would be the border zone thriller Triple Frontier, but Deadline now says that film has been pushed aside. So what's nextc Is it that adaptation of Anand Giridharadas' non-fiction book "The True American: Murder and Mercy in Texas" starring Tom Hardyc Nope, it's going to be the one we learned about last June, bringing Bigelow back together with screenwriter Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) to tell the story of Taliban Pow Bowe Bergdahl. Megan Ellison's Annapurna is producing and studios are expected to begin bidding soon. As I wrote back in June, I would rather see a story of the late "Rolling Stone" reporter Michael Hastings whose article on Bergdahl, "America's Last Prisoner of War" is being adapted for Todd Field to direct.

DiCaprio To Play 24 Personas In "Crowded"

28 February 2015 6:49 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Leonardo DiCaprio has signed on to both star in and produce a film adaptation of "The Crowded Room," New Regency's long in gestation film adaptation of the acclaimed 1981 book "The Minds of Billy Milligan" by Daniel Keyes.

Billy Milligan was a man tormented by twenty-four distinct personalities battling for supremacy over his body. It was a battle that culminated when he awoke in jail, arrested for the kidnap and rape of three women on the Ohio State University campus in the 1970s.

In a landmark trial, Billy was acquitted of his crimes by reason of insanity caused by multiple personality - the first such decision in history. The personalities included a petty criminal, a drug dealer, an affection-starved lesbian, an eight-year-old sadist, a con man, a snobby Englishman, a Yugoslavian communist, and an escape-artist. Each of the people play a distinct role in this often shocking true story.
