'Hanna' Writer to Adapt 'Who Is Jake Ellis?' for Director David Yates

15 April 2014 7:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hanna screenwriter Seth Lochhead has signed on to write the screenplay adaptation Who Is Jake Ellis? for 20th Century Fox and director David Yates, who became attached to this project back in October.

The story is adapted from the comic book series written by Nathan Edmondson and illustrated by Tonci Zonjic, which follows Jon Moore, Europe's best spy-for-hire, thanks to a mysterious psychic known as Jake Ellis, a man no one else can see but Moore. When a deal goes bad, Ellis must protect Moore using his gifts. The comic book ran for five issues in 2011, when it was nominated for an Eisner Award, and spawned the sequel series Where Is Jake Ellis? in 2012. The adaptation has been compared to the Bourne franchise, making Seth Lochhead a prime candidate to adapt the material.

Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping are producing for Chernin Entertainment, with Ford Lytle Gilmore serving as executive producer. »

15 April 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hanna” scribe Seth Lochhead has been set to write the adaptation of the Image comicbook “Who Is Jake Ellis?” for 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment.

David Yates is attached to direct, with Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping producing. Ford Lytle Gilmore is exec producing. Chernin Entertainment’s senior VP David Ready, who will oversee the project for Chernin and Jason Young will oversee for Fox.

15 April 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So while the news that neither "Birdman" nor "Inherent Vice" (our no. 10 and no. 1 most anticipated films of the year, respectively) will be showing in Cannes may have us casting our thoughts forward to the fall festival season, there are still quite a few key events on the cinephile calendar between now and then. Indeed, the Tribeca Film Festival starts this week, and while the line-up overall feels more muted in profile than some years, there's still plenty that has piqued our curiosity in its slate.

(James Franco), a single dad who coaches her in high school and pays her to watch his kid. [...] »

Blum On Carnahan's "Stretch," "Jem" Movie

3 April 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"The Grey" and "Smokin Aces" director Joe Carnahan's controversial new drama "Stretch" was pulled from the release calendar a while back with many wondering when we will ever get to see it.

The story stars Patrick Wilson as a chauffeur whose new ride is a devious billionaire (Chris Pine). Their night together leads to increasingly dangerous encounters. Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Ed Helms, and Ray Liotta also star.

Universal had planned a wide release but essentially dropped the movie soon after scheduling it. The film's producer Jason Blum has now spoken about the release date incident and says there is a chance it could end up at Toronto this year. He tells Collider:

"What happened with it was that all of the movies that we make, we don't announce and date them wide until they're finished. We got ahead of ourselves with Stretch and dated the movie.

Producer Jason Blum Explains Why Joe Carnahan’s Stretch Lost Its Release Date and When We Might See the Movie

3 April 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I was incredibly bummed when Joe Carnahan's Stretch was pulled from the calendar.  I'm a huge fan of the director (The Grey was my favorite film of 2012), and Stretch has a catchy premise: Patrick Wilson plays a chauffeur who picks up a difficult and devious billionaire, played in a cameo by Chris Pine.  As the night goes on, their interaction leads to increasingly dangerous encounters.  Jessica Alba, Brooklyn DeckerEd Helms, and Ray Liotta also appear in the film.  The movie was supposed to have a wide release, but Universal concluded it would be unwise to spend $20 million to $40 million to distribute the movie, so they dropped it. Yesterday, we spoke with producer Jason Blum for his new film, Oculus, and he also provided an update on the status of Stretch, and when we might finally see the film.  Hit the jump for more.

Can Sexy Scarlett Turn 'Under the Skin' Into an Arthouse Hit? (Trailer)

26 March 2014 2:56 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Why was the first-ever movie premiere at the restored United Artists Theatre at the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles packed with hipsters Tuesday night? While the likes of Miranda July and Mike Mills, Miguel Artega, Chloe Sevigny, Vincent Gallo, Rian Johnson and Karina Longworth, The Ravenettes' Sharin Foo, Matt Dentler, Catherine Hardwicke, David Lowery and Kevin Smith were checking out the gloriously ornate 1600-seat 1927 movie palace, which was hosting its first premiere in 25 years, they were also eager to see Jonathan Glazer's visually stunning "Under the Skin," starring Scarlett Johansson, which A24 scooped up out of Venice, Telluride and Toronto, where it earned claps and boos. (Reviews are more upbeat.) The long-in-the works atmospheric sci-fi thriller backed by a hodge-podge of financiers (including Film Four, BFI, Scottish Screen, Silver Reel and foreign sales company FIlmNation) opens stateside in select cities on April 4th.

Downtown L.A.’s Ace Hotel Hosts ‘Under the Skin’ at United Artists Theater

26 March 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hipster Hollywood descended on Downtown L.A.’s Ace Hotel on Tuesday night for the A24 premiere of Jonathan Glazer’s “Under the Skin,” which drew a decidedly Eastside crowd that was more boho than boffo. The venue took advantage of the rechristened United Artists Theater, a gloriously preserved movie cathedral that anchored the Broadway Theater district back in the day. It was the first film shown in the Spanish Gothic landmark, built in 1927, in a quarter century.

Despite the setting, the only thing Golden Age about the affair was vintage accessorizing by the rather youthful attendees, one of whom proceeded to vape as the house lights dimmed for the movie. The artful experimentalism of Glazer’s sci-fi opus, in which Scarlett Johansson plays an alien predator, attracted the industry’s more maverick personalities, like filmmakers Vincent Gallo and Catherine Hardwicke, actress Chloe Sevigny, musician Beck and Cinespia founder John Wyatt, »

'Divergent' Director Neil Burger Explains Why He Won't Return for the Sequel

19 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

A version of this story first appeared in the March 21-28 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Neil Burger isn't the first one-and-done franchise director. Like Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) and Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) before him, the Divergent helmer won't be behind the camera when the film's sequel Insurgent goes into production in late spring (Instead, Robert Schwentke will take the reins). But Burger is quick to point out that the decision to decamp the Shailene Woodley starrer was all his. "Basically, we had made the deal for me to direct it," the New York-

Clueless: What the cast did after hit teen comedy

11 March 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Iggy Azalea paid tribute to cult teen classic Clueless in her recent music video for 'Fancy'.

The Australian rapper appears as Alicia Silverstone's iconic character Cher in the video, which was released online last week.

As stars continue to be inspired by the movie almost 20 years on, we take a fond look back at the cast and what they went on to do after Clueless:

Alicia Silverstone (Cher Horowitz)

Alicia Silverstone played seemingly shallow socialite Cher - famously branded "a virgin who can't drive" and "hymenally challenged" - in the high-school adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma.

Prior to Clueless, Silverstone's credits included ABC comedy-drama The Wonder Years and a number of Aerosmith videos. The film propelled her to further fame, and she went on to star in Joel Schumacher's 1997 movie Batman & Robin, crime-comedy Excess Baggage (1997) with Benicio Del Toro and Christopher Walken, and romantic drama Blast from the Past (1999) opposite Brendan Fraser. »
