Female Screenwriter Tops 2014 Black List

17 December 2014 6:25 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to share some of the best unproduced screenplays written by women (according to industry insiders).

The Black List, now in its tenth iteration, compiles an annual list of the most liked unproduced screenplays. Since 2004, some of the screenplays featured on here have gone on to become Oscar-winning films like Argo, Juno, and The King’s Speech, as well as modest successes like Lars and the Real Girl, Charlie Wilson’s War and 50/50. Even current Oscar-favorite The Imitation Game topped the list in 2011. Other titles like Recount, Things We Lost in the Fire, The Beaver and Snow White and the Huntsman have been featured. That is to say, it’s quite a mixed bag (this year includes a screenplay for Wonka, for example, “a dark, reimagining of the Willy Wonka story beginning in World War II and culminating with his takeover of the chocolate factory,” which… well, to each »

Steve McQueen HBO Pilot Adds Paul Dano, Rebecca Hall, and Helena Bonham Carter

4 December 2014 1:39 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I do not look forward to much on television. If it is not "Game of Thrones" or "Louie", I really do not watch it. However, one project I am eagerly awaiting to see is "Codes of Conduct" an HBO pilot in the works from director Steve McQueen. The show has its lead with newcomer Devon Terrell, but it has added a trio of terrific performers to support the fresh face. Those three actors are Paul Dano, Rebecca Hall, and Helena Bonham Carter. Dano I is much more hit and miss for me, but the two women give stellar performances every time out. Even if the movie is terrible, they will be able to salvage something out of it. Dano needs a good script and director to help him out, which he had with McQueen previously on 12 Years a Slave. I do not know much about the show aside from Terrell »

Casting: Jonah Hill & Miles Teller Gear Up For Todd Phillips' 'Arms And The Dudes' And More

4 December 2014 6:02 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jonah Hill was doing table reads for it ages ago, but a couple of months back it looked like Shia Labeouf and Jesse Eisenberg were being prepped for the leads of Todd Phillips' "Arms And The Dudes." Well, things have circled back to Hill who is now attached to star, with Miles Teller being offered the co-starring role in the film. Based on Guy Lawson's Rolling Stone article "Arms And The Dudes" (read it here), the true story follows 25-year-old David Packouz and 21-year-old Efraim Diveroli, who scored a $300 million Pentagon contract to arm allies in Afghanistan, taking them on a journey through the absurd and political world of international arms trafficking that would end up with the duo being busted for fraud. Production on this one is aiming for the spring. [THR/The Wrap] Paul Dano, Rebecca Hall, and Helena Bonham Carter have taken roles in Steve McQueen's HBO pilot "Codes Of Conduct. »

Marvelous DA7E 70: Agent Carter is the Coulson of Phase 2

5 November 2014 2:36 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome To Issue 70!

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation. Dr. Strange director Scott Derrickson thinks I'm a F*cktard.

This Week: We got a look at Agent Carter and Jessica Chastain enters the Marvel rumor mill. 

Happy post-election day, which is also New Comic Book Day and - for yours truly - another day in the Spider-Verse for Marvel Comics. I’m doing well all things considered, even as election fever gripped television last night, pushing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and other TV I wanted to watch off the week so we could get returns.

Instead, on ABC, we were treated to an hour-long special about Marvel Comics narrated by Agent 13, Emily Van camp, who I had almost forgot about even though she’s the next in line for a Cap love interest »

Yes No Maybe So: Chappie

5 November 2014 6:39 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to play our favorite trailer watching game.

Is it safe to say that of the 47 films to have been nominated for Best Picture ever since the category's expansion, District 9 remains the oddest, with its sci-fi concept, low-tech execution and lack of big name recognition? Neill Blomkamp and Sharlto Copley followed that up with Elysium which very few of us have thought about since it came out. They’re re-teamed for Chappie which, well, I’ll just give you the synopsis:

Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings - some good, some bad - and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there's one thing that makes »

Chastain Denies Captain Marvel Speculation

4 November 2014 7:58 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In a recent interview with MTV News, actress Jessica Chastain confirmed old reports that she had turned down what she described as a "boring civilian role" in "Iron Man 3," likely the role that went to Rebecca Hall. Her reasons for turning it down are understandable:

"If you're going to be in a superhero movie, you only get one chance. You're that character forever. So why do a superhero movie and play the boring civilian? Whatever it is, I want a fight scene. I could be an incredible villain. I could be a hero. I want a cool outfit, and I want to kick ass."

The surprise though was her next comment - that she almost scored a role in which there was the possibility of the character becoming a superheroine

I don't know if you remember this or not, but Jessica Chastain was up for the role of Maya Hanson in Iron Man 3. She had to drop out, though, and was replaced by Rebecca Hall. Marvel didn't forget about her, and it looks like they are still looking to bring her into the Marvel universe. In an interview with MTV, she revealed that she's met with Marvel, and that what type of role she is looking for in their cinematic universe.

“We’ve talked about aligning our forces in the future. And here’s the thing with me… If you’re going to be in a superhero movie, you only get one chance. You’re that character forever.

Jessica Chastain Confirms Marvel Talks; Is She 'Captain Marvel'?

3 November 2014 4:23 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With nine movies planned for Marvel Phase 3, we can expect most of Hollywood will be rumored for one character or another, but perhaps the most coveted is that of Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel. And while the movie doesn't actually hit theater screens until 2018, its rumored that the character will appear at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. If this is true, casting discussions are obviously underway for this scene that has not yet been shot. One possible candidate is Interstellar actress Jessica Chastain, who confirms she has met with the studio, and that she wants to play one of the superheroes, not a civilian. Does that mean she is suiting up as Captain Marvel?

The actress won't reveal which character she might be taking on, but she does say this about her interest in the role, and the huge possibility that she may soon become a part of the Marvel family. »

Jessica Chastain Has Spoken With Marvel About A Future Role...Captain Marvel Perhaps?

3 November 2014 1:36 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

You may remember back when Maya Hanson was being cast for Iron Man 3, at one point Jessica Chastain was in final talks to play the character. Unfortunately she had to drop out and Rebecca Hall wound up in the role, but by the sounds of things a part like that wouldn't have been up Chastain's alley anyway because, to paraphrase Colin Farrell's Daredevil character Bullseye, she wants a bloody costume -- and it looks like she might just get the chance to wear one. Since that departure with Marvel, fans have wondered if there'd be another opportunity for the Zero Dark Thirty actress to suit up as a different character, and when the Captain Marvel movie was announced last week she immediately shot to the top of many fan's wishlists. In an interview with MTV, Chastain reveals that there has been conversations, though she remains tight lipped about the specifics. »

'Avengers 2' and Joss Whedon Earn Praise from Robert Downey Jr.

31 October 2014 1:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe got a lot bigger this week, after the studio announced their full Phase Three slate through 2019, which will have a whopping nine movies. This phase will be properly set up by next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron, the ending of which will alter the superhero team's lineup.

Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Tony Stark, spoke about how the events of Iron Man 3, where he removed the Arc reactor and destroyed all of his Iron Man suits, helps set up Avengers: Age of Ultron, in a new interview with Marvel.com.

"I thought that the third Iron Man was about [Tony] transcending his dependence on the merits of continuing to wear your wound. That was what [director] Shane [Black] and I thought was the real win, that he throws that thing that had become a dependency away. Because that was the question I was always asking, why doesn't »
