Spielberg, Bruckheimer & More: Why Some of TV’s Biggest Producers Have Gone Indie

24 June 2016 7:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

TV’s top producers are drafting their own declarations of independence. Jerry Bruckheimer recently joined Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV and “Criminal Minds” producer Mark Gordon in opting to skip rich overall deals and go it alone.

Independence means losing the overhead dollars that come with being aligned to a major studio. But for Amblin, Bruckheimer, Gordon and others, the freedom to produce anywhere and with anyone is worth having to cover those costs.

“The environment is excellent for it,” Bruckheimer told IndieWire. “With all the enormous amount of new buyers, people need content. There are so many different venues to broadcast television shows. Since we have had a lot of success with network in premium content, we thought we could expand and do more.”

Bruckheimer had most recently been set up at Warner Bros. Television. But that deal was set to expire this year, and his TV chief, Jonathan Littman, »

Howard Storm’s ‘My Descent Into Death’ to Be Adapted Into Movie

15 June 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alcon Entertainment has optioned film rights to Howard Storm’s book “My Descent Into Death,” a supernatural thriller dramatizing the author’s near-death experience.

Jinder Ho (“There,” “Past on Conversation”) will write the film adaptation. Mark Clayman (“The Pursuit of Happyness”) brought the book to Alcon and will produce along with Alcon principals Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.

Carl Rogers will oversee the project with Alex Tompkins. Rogers, Alcon’s head of development, has been at the company since 2005.

Storm’s book, first published in 2000, details his experience in 1985, when he was awaiting emergency surgery and found himself out of his own body, looking down on the hospital room scene below. Rather than going “toward the light,” he found himself being torturously dragged to realms of darkness and death, and then to heaven before being transported back to earth with a new purpose.

Alcon’s upcoming projects include the road-trip comedy “Bastards,” now in post-production starring Owen Wilson and Ed Helms; and a sequel to “Blade Runner,” currently in pre-production with Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright and Dave Bautista starring.

Jinder is repped by CAA and Andrew Coles at The Mission.

They're Making Another Garfield Movie, But With One Important Change

23 May 2016 4:54 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Even though Bill Murray.s casting as Garfield should have been a match made in cinematic heaven, his two outings as the feline with a lasagna fetish didn.t produce the films that fans of the character and actor were hoping for. But they still made a combined total of $342.5 million at the box office, which means that news of a brand-new Garfield film shouldn.t shock anyone. Rather than being a sequel though, this is a fresh iteration of Garfield and it will be entirely animated. Variety were the first to report that Alcon Entertainment signed a deal for the rights to make animated films based on the world famous Garfield comic strip, created by Jim Davis - who was also named as an executive producer on this latest incarnation of his beloved character.

Crack out the lasagna; The Hollywood Reporter brings words that a Garfield animated movie has found a home at Alcon Entertainment, the studio currently presiding over Denis Villeneuve’s long-gestating sequel, Blade Runner 2.

Circling back to the strip-based comic that first made its bow back in 1978, before shooting to success throughout the ’80s, THR notes that Alcon has struck a deal with Jim Davis – creative mind behind the rotund feline – who will serve as executive producer on the finished movie.

Of course, Garfield has made a pass at the big screen before, most notably with Peter Hewitt’s live-action movie that had The Jungle Book »
