Afm: TWC’s David Glasser Praises Robust TV Division, Film Team

4 November 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

What a difference a year makes. David Glasser shocked industry watchers last summer when he resigned as COO/president of The Weinstein Co., only to reverse course within a few weeks and re-up with the indie studio through 2018. Following his famous 180, Glasser is re-emerging at The 360 View, Afm’s Nov. 4 global film financing panel. He talked with Variety about the industry, his new feature slate, and the future of Weinstein Television and his day-and-date label, Radius-twc.

Where do you see indie film financing heading in the next few years?

There’s always going to be a market for films to get financed independently, [but] I think the output of arthouse movies will come down. The little ones we used to grind out [that made] $15, $20, $25 million are finding it harder to survive when there is incredible product coming from Netflix, Amazon and HBO. It limits the amount of movies that we’re going to do per year. »

Yes, we're getting a Furby movie. Bob Weinstein announced the upcoming fantasy adventure as part of an ambitious five movie slate planned for the producer's TWC-Dimension banner. While no plot details have been announced, it has been confirmed that this impending franchise starter will indeed be based on the original Hasbro toy line of the same name. Says Weinstein.

"I'm rolling the dice and playing for hits."

Bob Weinstein announced the Furby movie during an early evening presentation on Thursday in Casa De Mar at the American Film Market, where he stood before over 100 buyers. The script for the Furby movie is already completed, as are the four other projects the producer came to sell, according to Variety.

This was the first time that a Furby movie has been mentioned in regards to the impending TWC-Dimension slate, a label that is better known for its horror and dark genre movies »

AFM: Bob Weinstein Unveils Furby Movie for TWC-Dimension

2 November 2016 11:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bob Weinstein has unveiled an ambitious slate of five films for TWC-Dimension label — including a movie based on Hasbro’s Furby toy line.

“I’m rolling the dice and playing for hits,” Weinstein said in the early evening presentation at Casa De Mar beforeabout 100 buyers at the American Film Market. All five projects have completed scripts.

It was the first announcement about the Furby movie. Hasbro executives Stephen Davis and Joel Feldman told the audience of about 100 that the Furby film will be a live-action and CGI hybrid.

Furbys, the owl-like robotic toys with speaking capabilities in dozens of languages, caught on in the late 1990s. Davis, the company’s chief content officer, and Feldman noted that Hasbro has already seen significant success in Hollywood with the Transformers and Ouija franchises.

“We think that this can resonate as a four-quadrant film,” Davis said. “It can’t just by a 90-minute commercial. »

‘Enchanted’ sequel ‘Disenchanted’ finds a director, eyes summer 2017 production start

6 October 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It looks like Disney will indeed give us another movie poking fun at itself all the while celebrating its animated films à la the sly parody of The Princess Bride. Things are finally moving forward on the sequel to 2007’s Enchanted. Adam Shankman is in negotiations to direct the sequel, called Disenchanted, and Amy Adams is expected to return, The Hollywood Reporter posted today. Disney hopes to start production in summer 2017. I’m disappointed to see Anne Fletcher and her comedy chops apparently off the project (Fletcher, who helmed Ryan Reynolds/Sandra Bullock rom-com The Proposal, was previously attached to direct the Enchanted sequel when it was in development back in 2010). But if Shankman delivers a movie that’s as fun and packed with dazzling musical numbers as his Hairspray, then we should be in for a solid sequel. His other credits include the Rock of Ages movie, A Walk to Remember, »

Hairspray Director In Talks To Helm Enchanted Sequel

6 October 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It’s almost been a decade since Amy Adams hit the screen in the Disney animated/live-action hybrid film Enchanted. The movie told the story of an animated princess who finds herself in the very real New York City, where cynicism is in full effect and at odds with her own naive sensibilities. While the film on paper has the potential to be quite the cheese-fest, it ended up being a surprise hit with both fans and critics.

Back in 2010, Disney started developing a sequel to the film, and Anne Fletcher, director of such films as The Proposal and Step Up was even attached to take the lead on the film. It’s seven years later, and nothing has materialized. Like many films in Hollywood, it seems to have wallowed in development hell.

But a new report from THR indicates that the film’s sequel, Disenchanted, has starting to gain momentum once again. »

Enchanted 2 Brings Back Amy Adams, Gets Hairspray Director

6 October 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nearly nine years after it first hit theaters, Disney's follow-up to Enchanted, titled Disenchaned, has finally found its director. Hairspray and Rock of Ages director Adam Shankman is in talks to direct the Enchanted sequel, which the studio has been developing since 2010. Original Enchaned star Amy Adams is expected to reprise her role as princess Giselle. Although it isn't known if James Marsden or any of the other original cast members will be back for Enchanted 2.

The original Enchanted centered on Amy Adams' Giselle, who is set to marry her Prince Charming (James Marsden) before she is taken from her animated fantasy world and thrust into our real world in New York City. There she meets a lawyer (Patrick Dempsey) who is about to marry a woman (Idina Menzel) who is completely wrong for him. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Disenchanted will take place 10 years after the original movie, »

Hot Pursuit movie review: nice rack and ruin

21 March 2016 6:53 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Spectacularly misogynist. Every single attempt at humor — all of which fail — comes from abusing and humiliating its central female characters as women. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

With the spectacularly misogynist Hot Pursuit, director Anne Fletcher — whose oeuvre also includes the antiwoman horrors 27 Dresses and The Proposal — finally makes me suspect that she has decided to become Hollywood’s “cool girl,” playing along with all the boys’ crap and roaring at all their sexist jokes so that they’ll like her and let her hang out in their clubhouse. There isn’t a single laugh to be found in this “comedy” about a cop (Reese Witherspoon: Wild) protecting a witness (Sofía Vergara: Wild Card) on her way to testify against a drug lord, but every single attempt at humor comes at their expense as »

Live action fairytale movies: UK release date calendar

When to expect all the upcoming live action fairytale movies, including Dumbo, Beauty And The Beast and two Jungle Books…

You’ve probably noticed the influx of live action fairytales gracing cinemas in recent years. This isn’t about to stop any time soon, since re-spinning a recognisable fantastical yarn with real people instead of animated ones always makes big money for the studio behind it.

This process has become so popular that there are currently more of these live action fairytales in production than Marvel Studios, DC Entertainment or Star Wars movies. That’s a lot of films. (A whopping 21 by our count.)

Although it wadsn’t the first movie of this kind, Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland – and its worldwide gross of over a billion dollars – can surely take the credit for kick-starting this trend. Here are all the in-development movies trying to repeat its success, »
