R.I.P. Publicist Eddie Michaels

9 August 2013 12:52 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

One of the premier PR men of his generation, Eddie Michaels, succumbed last night in his lengthy battle with brain cancer and died at age 49. Michaels was surrounded at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by a coterie of industry friends, clients, his wife Lorin and his children, 7-year-old Matthew and 11-year-old daughter Dylan. To see a good guy go so young is heartbreaking to me today. I met Eddie when I had just moved over from Weekly Variety to Daily Variety. I was the Long Island kid who had upset the order of things by breaking film stories that were ordinarily the domain of L.A.-based trade reporters. He called me, riled about some story I’d broken on Allen and Albert Hughes, who didn’t want the details on a project out there because it was not at the studio where they’d made an overall deal, or at least »

Akira Remake Is Back On, Jaume Collet-Serra Back In Talks To Direct

2 August 2013 12:03 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In January 2012 it looked as though the in-development live-action adaptation of Akira had finally kicked the bucket. Warner Bros. fought hard to get the movie made, first enlisting Albert Hughes to direct before hiring Jaume Collet-Serra to replace him, but ultimately it was decided that the film wasn't worth the budget it would need to be done right, and the production was shut down. Now, however, it seems as though we can reclassify the film as a zombie movie, because it appears to be back from the dead. Variety is reporting that WB is now once again in talks with Collet-Serra to have him come back and helm Akira. As the trade notes in their report, the movie was shut down back in 2012 so that the script could be fixed up and the $90 million budget lowered. Apparently after Collet-Serra left the project the studio began looking for filmmakers who could »

Warner Bros. Resurrects Akira as Jaume Collet-Sera Returns to Director’s Chair with Reduced Budget

1 August 2013 5:44 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros.’ troubled adaptation of the popular manga Akira may yet make it in front of cameras.  The studio has been trying to get Akira off the ground for years, and most recently Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown) was attached to direct with a cast that included Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, Helena Bonham Carter, and Ken Watanabe.  Collet-Serra had managed to reduce the budget down to $90 million from Albert Hughes’ $180 million version of the film, but just as production was looming closer, WB hit pause on the project with the aim of bringing the budget down further to somewhere between $60 million and $70 million.  Collet-Serra subsequently left the project to focus his efforts on other pursuits, and word on the feature has been practically non-existent for over a year. However, reports have now surfaced that Warner Bros. is revving Akira up once more, complete with Collet-Serra returning to the director’s chair.  Hit the jump for more. »

More Akira Concept Art From Warner Bros. Defunct Live-Action Remake

26 June 2013 10:02 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

If you've been following the saga of Warner Bros. failed attempt to make a live-action remake of Akira, you will know that the studio has gone through at least three directors. Below you you will see concept art that Tommy Lee Edwards created for Albert Hughes' ("The Book of Eli") version. Then there is Tim Flattery's artwork, which I believe was intended for Irish short film director, Ruairi Robinson. Lastly, there is Rodolfo Dimaggio artwork of Tetsuo's big finale, the bowling alley, the freeway, Ducati Demolitore, and the Marquee bar. I'm speculating, but the art seems to fit with Jaume Collet-Serra's ("Orphan") vision.

'Motor City' Producers Face Lawsuits from Gerard Butler, Film Financier

14 February 2013 6:47 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Last September, production on Motor City was suddenly halted just as it was about to begin shooting. The film was to be directed by Albert Hughes (Menace II Society, Book of Eli) and had stars Gerard Butler, Mickey Rourke and Adrien Brody attached. Perhaps most importantly, it had the backing of Randall Emmet/George Furla Productions, which has become an important producer in Hollywood. Less than six months after production on Motor City was suspended thanks to scheduling difficulties, Randall Emmet/George Furla Productions is now facing multiple legal actions for the move.

Albert Hughes on Almost Getting Jumped by Tupac, Moby on His First E-mail Account, and Other Stories From 1993

4 February 2013 1:45 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In this week's New York magazine, Carl Swanson uses the opening of an exhibition at the New Museum to explore the question of whether or not 1993 changed the world. As part of the issue, we interviewed several directors, musicians, actors, and TV showrunners for their thoughts and memories from two decades ago. A selection, below: Albert Hughes, co-director of Menace II Society Our intention was to shock. We were heavily influenced by gangsta rap, and we wanted to make a movie equivalent. Hood movies had been made for a black market. Very few people knew our real goal was to make one for white people. When we completed it, because this was our first film, we thought, This is a piece of shit. This is not what we wanted to make. It wasn't hard enough. It was just soft. And then we started getting the reactions. New Line took us »

20 Years Later, Allen Hughes Talks 'Menace II Society', 2Pac, 'Broken City', 'Django Unchained'

17 January 2013 9:06 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

2013 will mark 20 years since the Allen and Albert Hughes-directed Menace II Society was released in theaters.  Damn, that makes me feel old. I still remember my best friend sweet-talking an older woman into buying our tickets for Menace, since we were but 14 or 15 years old at the time.  We had heard so much from the older kids about how crucial it was to see this film, we were prepared to do anything to get in.  And when we walked out of the now-closed AMC City Place 10 theater in Silver Spring, MD that afternoon, the world was a different place to us.  If anything, Menace scared us just as much as it excited us.  But to know that the Hughes Brothers were a »
