It is inspiring to me as a filmmaker to get the opportunity to work with the both of them,” said Forster in a statement about the casting. »

This year we'll see Blake Lively stay perpetually young in The Age of Adaline, and Jason Clarke fight and army of machines in Terminator: Genisys. And next, the two will unite for something completely different for both of them. Deadline reports Lively and Clarke will star in All I See is You, a new psychological drama from World War Z and Quantum of Solace director Marc Forster. The filmmaker also wrote the script with Sean Conway and will produce along with Michael Shelby and Sc International Pictures along with Ron Perlman, by way of his own Wing and a Prayer productions, Jillian Kugler and Brian Wilkins. The story certainly sounds intriguing as it follows a blind woman and her husband who upon restoration of her sight begins to discover previously unseen and disturbing details about themselves, their marriage and their lives. That's a fairly vague conflict, but maybe it become a bit of a thriller? »

Anyone who has ever watched the Godzilla films knows that he isn’t a monster at all. More of a protector really. So this hotel room opening in Tokyo, really is quite soothing to know you have someone looking over you. Not scary at all, honestly.
For just $334 a night on weekdays, you can have Godzilla’s hand looming over you as you sleep and a statue of the kaiju peacefully guarding your doorway. You can even get a room that looks directly out at a Godzilla head mounted on the roof of the hotel.
Ah the Japanese; so like us.
We all know Michael Keaton should’ve won an Oscar last Sunday. In fact, he probably thought so too. Take a look at this Vine, in which it kind of looks like he’s putting a piece of paper, maybe an acceptance speech back into his jacket pocket right »

He decided a while ago not to come back for another bout against the undead hordes with the World War Z sequel, but despite having several irons in the development fire, it would appear Marc Forster has locked in his next film. He’s signed up Blake Lively and Jason Clarke to star in All I See Is You.Forster wrote the script for this one with Sean Conway and it finds him back in the sort of brain-tickling thriller territory he explored with 2005’s Stay. All I See Is You will star Lively as a blind woman whose sight is restored. But while that would surely count as a reason for celebration, her repaired vision means she can now see all the undiscovered details about herself, her husband (Clarke), her marriage and their lives together. If she thinks that’s a problem, wait until he explains about the force »

With five months to go until its worldwide theatrical release, production on upcoming blockbuster, Mission: Impossible 5 has apparently come to a screeching halt. Per THR, principal photography for the Tom Cruise-starrer is on pause so director Christopher McQuarrie and “a writer friend whose identity remains a mystery” can plot out a new ending. This so-called shadowy scribe “will neither be paid nor credited” according to the outlet, but will be key in reworking what the studio has dubbed an ‘unsatisfactory’ finale.
Paramount recently moved the film’s initial release date up from a Christmas Day opening to a July 31st summer spot. That decision would suggest that the studio has every faith in McQuarrie’s sequel, despite the fact that one source described the helmer as “scrambling” to concoct a new ending. However, on a happier note, another source alleged that “Chris, Tom [Cruise] and a third person wanted »

In honor of the Film Independent Spirit Awards’ 30th year, the show will be broadcast live from its Santa Monica tent on IFC. If history is any indication, there are sure to be a few surprising moments — and there’s already been a big one for the show’s co-host, Kristen Bell.
“You might be shocked by this, but no one told me it would be airing live when I was offered the job,” says Bell, who’s been busy taking care of her second daughter, born just two months before the ceremony. “As long as she doesn’t want to breastfeed, it’ll be a nice change of pace.”
Even if Bell ends up breastfeeding next to co-host Fred Armisen, the crowd of 1,350 might not bat an eye. It would be in keeping with the show’s anarchic, irreverent and frequently profane hosts, presenters and winners. (The latter aren’t constrained by time limits, »

Founded by a group of friends in 1995, Slamdance is one of many premiere festivals with a reputation for screening truly independent films without distribution. In the case of Slamdance alone, that means films made for under $1 million. It might sound strange now, but filmmakers whose work has matched that criteria include "Interstellar" director Christopher Nolan, whose debut "Following" premiered at Slamdance in 1999. Other filmmakers who first gained notice at Slamdance include Lena Dunham, Jeremy Saulnier, Lynn Shelton, Benh Zeitlin and Marc Forster, among many others. Read More: How the Slamdance Film Festival Survived 20 Years of Counter-programming Mayhem Of course, Slamdance can't take full credit for their extraordinary successes. But the festival not only takes chances on new talent; it also pushes the boundaries of cinematic content. The programmers screen things that honestly make me squirm and turn away; I don't see this at most festivals. They »

After delivering one of last year’s best action flicks, a visceral and vivid thriller as enthrallingly stylish as it was narratively taut, John Wick directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski are being courted for Cowboy Ninja Viking, a comic-book adaptation set to star Chris Pratt.
Universal sent an offer out to the pair, who are now in early talks, having already met with Pratt and received his stamp of approval. Marc Forster was attached to the project way back, but he fell off long before Pratt boarded. If Leitch and Stahelski do sign on, Universal plans to get this pic off the ground very soon.
Based on A.J. Lieberman and Riley Rosmo’s graphic novel, Cowboy Ninja Viking centers on an experimental government program that turns multiple personality disorder patients into counter-intelligence agents with three distinct personalities, each possessing unique skill-sets. Pratt will star as protagonist Duncan, whose personalities include that of a cowboy, »

Three of last year’s biggest breakouts are set to work together on your new most anticipated movie of, well, currently forever. Cowboy Ninja Viking doesn’t have a release date yet, so I don’t know how long you’ll need to be patient, but try to contain your excitement. We already knew that rising tentpole star Chris Pratt would be front and center in the adaptation of A.J. Lieberman and Riley Rossmo’s graphic novel if the right person or persons were at the helm, and now he’s given his approval for the men who will likely direct him: Chad Stahelski and David Leitch. That’s right, the duo who helmed John Wick, which was their feature directorial debut following decades of work as stunt men and second-unit work. According to Variety, they’re in early talks with an offer out, but it’s hard to see this not coming together as perfectly as »

World War Z, which was directed by Marc Forster and starred Brad Pitt as a United Nations investigator trying to stop the spread of a zombie virus, had some well publicized behind-the-scenes struggles and most wrote it off as a disaster before it hit the big screen. But when the movie opened, it proved to be a big hit. Soon after, Paramount green lit a sequel, which we really haven't heard too much about. Now, writer Steve Knight (Eastern Promises; Locke) is opening up about his process on World War Z 2, and he promises something that will be decidedly different than the first movie.
Speaking with IndieWire, Steve Knight revels the simple reason why he signed onto the movie. He then makes it almost sound like a complete reboot of the first installment, which was based on Max Brooks's survival guide:
" "I thought, 'why not? What fun.' »
In 2013, we got a look at what a $200 Million zombie movie looks like. World War Z, the Brad Pitt-starring, Marc Forster-directed adaptation of Max Brooks’ oral history of the zombie war took on the aesthetic of a disaster blockbuster and rode its wave of digital zombies to box office success. Of course, a…
