2010's Black List Includes College Republicans And Looper

13 December 2010 1:45 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The 2010 "Black List," voted on by nearly 300 Hollywood studio executives to pick the best-liked unproduced scripts in the industry, was announced today, with College Republicans--already set to star Shia Labeouf-- topping the list at 49 votes. Right behind it was Jackie the Jacqueline Kennedy-focused drama that Darren Aronofsky was planning to make earlier this year but will probably be put on hold, both because it was set to star his estranged wife Rachel Weisz and he's, uh, got other things to focus on. You can find the entire Black List here, and you'll find plenty of other familiar names and titles, even some movies going into production soon, including Rian Johnson's Looper (with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Wilis, and Emily Blunt), Alex Kurtzman's Welcome to People (with Elizabeth Banks and Chris Pine), Will Beall Gangster Squad (with Ruben Fleischer directing) and Snow White and the Huntsman (with both »

2010 Black List: Most Liked Scripts in Hollywood

13 December 2010 8:58 AM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Every year, studio executive Franklin Leonard compiles the “Black List,” a collection of the best unproduced screenplays as voted on by 300 execs and high-level assistants.  The 2010 list is the sixth of its kind to bring additional awareness to Hollywood’s hottest scripts.

Topping the list this year is Wes JonesCollege Republicans, a Social Network-esque story (read my script review here) about the underhanded election of Karl Rove to a National College Republican seat, managed by strategy wunderkind Lee Atwater.  Shia Labeouf is attached to play Atwater and Paul Dano as Rove.  Previous Black List leaders include 2008’s The Beaver, which became a long-delayed film directed by Jodie Foster and starring Mel Gibson, and 2009’s The Muppet Man, which remains on the shelf.

Top 10 of 2010 (via the La Times). The Black List is available for download on the official website. Update: the rest added below:

The Notable Films of 2011: Part One

13 December 2010 7:39 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back for its third year (see the 2010 edition) and bigger than ever, today kicks off the first in a fifteen-part look at the various cinematic releases hitting the U.S. in 2011. Each 'part' contains brief descriptions and editorial opinion/analysis of varying length covering twenty films. Expect the remaining ones to go up between now and the first major releases in mid-January.

Like all cinematic lists set within a timeframe, there's some overlap. Some films here have already opened worldwide but have yet to hit the U.S., some upcoming films you'd expect to be here aren't because they're either still in development or have already announced 2012 release dates, some were on last year's list but got delayed so have been included again (but with all new analysis).

I confined my list to films that have either set 2011 release dates or had begun/completed production, and only films that have »

Jesse Eisenberg Joins Cast of ‘Free Samples’

10 December 2010 2:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Briefly: You've got to appreciate a move like this. Jesse Eisenberg is enjoying justified praise for his work in The Social Network, and will very likely score an Oscar nomination in the deal. So what does he do to follow up the film? He signs on to a small-ish indie dramedy called Free Samples. The film features Jess Weixler (Teeth) as "a law school drop-out who fills in as a server as a friend's food truck, where she doles out free samples of ice cream. The job tests her patience, and while she figures out what to do with her life, she finds herself being courted by a young man (Eisenberg) whom she barely remembers from the night before." The film is in production now. Jay Gammill (Hello, My Name is Charlie) directs from a script by Jim Beggarly, and Jason Ritter (who was in The Education of Charlie Banks with Eisenberg), Tippi Hedren, »

Jesse Eisenberg To Dish Out 'Free Samples' In First Post-'Social Network' Role

10 December 2010 7:48 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Following his critically acclaimed (and, fingers crossed, potentially Oscar nominated) performance as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in "The Social Network," Jesse Eisenberg has instantly become an actor to watch — and thankfully, we know where we can watch him next.

The Wrap reports that Eisenberg has found his next project in the form of indie dramedy "Free Samples." The actor joins an extensive cast including Jess Weixler, Jason Ritter, Tippi Hedren, Hallie Pfeiffer, Keir O'Donnell, Jocelyn Donahuge and Matt Walsh.

Eisenberg's latest role is merely a supporting one, however, as "Free Samples" focuses mainly on Weixler's character.

According to the report, "Free Samples" centers on a law school drop-out (Weixler) who occupies her time by working as an ice cream server at a friend's food truck. As she grows impatient with the job and the assorted clientele, our protagonist has to simultaneously deal with the advances of a young man (Eisenberg »

‘Zombieland’ Director to Helm ‘Gangster Squad’

6 December 2010 8:31 PM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Ruben Fleischer, who crashed onto the scene with the 2009 horror comedy Zombieland, is in negotiations to direct Warner Bros’ The Gangster Squad, a late ’40s crime drama.

The project, based on the book by Paul Lieberman, is about Lapd Sgt. John O’Mara and his handpicked squad of officially unsanctioned gangster hunters and their mission to bring down notorious crime boss Mickey Cohen.

Deadline confirms Fleischer, who has been on the studio’s impressive shortlist.  In fact, WB has been actively searching for a director to take on the Will Beall script for months, offering the chair to Ben Affleck after his sophomore effort, The Town, opened to financial and critical success.  But Affleck turned them down, though he’s perfectly suited for the period story that evokes the throwback swagger of L.A. Confidential and the Tommy Gun-spitting gunfights of The Untouchables.

WB turned to Darren Aronofsky, oddly enough, »

Reuben Fleischer to Direct Gangster Squad

3 December 2010 12:02 AM, PST | movies.about.com | See recent About.com Hollywood Movies news »

Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer is gearing up to direct Gangster Squad for Warner Bros, says The Hollywood Reporter. The crime drama will be set in the 1940s and is based on the 2008 L.A. Noir: Tales From the Gangster Squad article series in the La Times written by Paul Lieberman. Will Beall is working on the script.

Gangster Squad chronicles the Los Angeles Police Department's battle with organized crime. From the La Times: "The Gangster Squad was formed in 1946 to keep East Coast Mafia out of L.A. Its 'anything goes' approach endured through the 1950s in an era when justice was found far from the courthouse."

Fleischer is also prepping the sequel to Zombieland and just completed work on the comedy 30 Minutes or Less with Zombieland star Jesse Eisenberg (currently earning rave reviews for his portrayal of Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network).

Zombieland Director Goes Gangster

2 December 2010 10:47 AM, PST | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer is considering taking on Gangster Squad, which tells the true story of how the 1940s era Lapd created a unit (called the Gangster Squad) which worked to keep out the East Coast Mafia at a time when Los Angeles was a fairly corrupt city itself. The story is taken from a seven-part "L.A. Times" series titled "Tales from the Gangster Squad." Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes, Shorts, Terminator Salvation) is producing along with Kevin McCormick (The Town) for Warner Brothers.

Ruben Fleischer Takes Another Gig Not Titled Zombieland 2

2 December 2010 10:09 AM, PST | HugAZombie | See recent HugAZombie news »

Fleischer is a very busy boy.

The box office success of Zombieland extended to every person involved in the movie. Screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were hired to script G.I. Joe 2 and an adaptation of Deadpool, Jesse Eisenberg went on to The Social Network, Emma Stone landed in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, Abigail Breslin went to Broadway to play Helen Keller (debatable two steps back), and Woody Harrelson was offered so many projects he'll barely have any time to head back to his Hawaii home and get baked between yoga sessions.

Meanwhile, director Ruben Fleischer has been piling up projects to follow 30 Minutes or Less, his upcoming comedy with Eisenberg that opens on August 12, 2011. ComingSoon reports that Warner Bros. is negotiating with Fleischer to direct Gangster Squad, based on a series of La Times articles about a "a band of secret "off the record" police task force who »

‘Zombieland’ Director Tapped for Crime Drama ‘Gangster Squad’

2 December 2010 6:58 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Back in mid-November, we reported that Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer was in contention to direct the Warner Bros. film Gangster Squad. Now, it would appear that Fleischer has edged his way into the top position for the film.

Gangster Squad, which was developed from the seven-part La Times series “Tales from the Gangster Squad”, will focus on organized crime in La following World War II.

More specifically, according to Variety, “the newspaper series, penned by Paul Lieberman, chronicled efforts by the Lapd to deal with a chaotic and corrupt Los Angeles by forming what was dubbed the Gangster Squad to keep the East Coast Mafia out of the city.”

Gangster Squad sounds a bit like a mix between The Untouchables and L.A. Confidential, which could make for a pretty excellent movie…

'Zombieland' Director Ruben Fleischer to Helm Buzzed-About 'Gangster Squad'

2 December 2010 1:10 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Filed under: Movie News, Cinematical

'Zombieland' was one of the more pleasant surprises of 2009, a fun, silly riff on a genre that has otherwise been played to death. Still, nothing in that film screamed "Epic Period Gangster Drama," which makes director Ruben Fleischer an unexpected but entirely pleasant choice for Warner Bros.' 'Gangster Squad,' the story of the titular group of police officers who battled organized crime in Los Angeles during the 1940s and 1950s.

Deadline reports that Fleischer is currently in negotiations to helm the project, which is "one of the hotter scripts in the studio's arsenal." Written by former Lapd cop Will Beall (author of the novel 'L.A. Rex') and based on a series of La Times articles by Paul Lieberman, the film sounds similar to classic cop films like 'L.A. Confidential' and 'The Untouchables' but appears to have an air of authenticity that those stylized (albeit, »

Director Ruben Fleischer Enters Negotiations For Tales From The Gangster Squad

1 December 2010 11:19 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While speaking with director Ruben Fleischer this past summer on the set of his next film, 30 Minutes or Less, he delivered some disheartening news it may be a while yet before we see a sequel to Zombieland. Though at least the first draft of the script is done, the director has other commitments that include a buddy cop movie being written for DreamWorks, and a project called Babe in The Woods with Mike White. Now yet another movie might be blocking the zombie comedy's path. Deadline reports that Warner Bros. has entered early negotiations with Fleischer to direct Tales From The Gangster Squad - a crime drama set around 1940s Los Angeles and crime lords like Mickey Cohen. Rumored for the gig for nearly a month now, the project has already been offered to a couple directors who turned it down, including Ben Affleck and Darren Aronofsky. Based on a »
