John Lucas in The Firm; NBC Releases Sneak Preview (watch!)

24 December 2011 8:47 AM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Josh Lucas stars as Mitch McDeere in the new NBC drama “The Firm,” which picks up where the John Grisham novel and hit 1993 Tom Cruise movie, left off. Mitch is 10 years older and emerging from witness protection. Both the book and the Cruise movie where hugely popular. Seven million copies of the book sold, while the movie grossed more than $270 million worldwide. Hopefully the third time will be the charm for the adaptation of a Grisham book for television. In 1995, his book “The Client” was the basis for a CBS series by the same name. It lasted 21 episodes. »

Writer hired for "American Psycho" remake

9 December 2011 1:32 PM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

This is getting a bit ridiculous. Only a scant 11 years after it hit theaters, an "American Psycho" remake is already in the works. We have only one response to this: Why?

Lionsgate has hired Noble Jones to write a new version of the script. He previously worked as a second-unit director for "The Social Network." He pitched the project to Lionsgate several months ago as a way explore how main character Patrick Bateman would fare in a modern-day New York City. By contrast, Mary Harron both wrote and directed the 2000 version.

Variety reported that this new version will be low budget, and still hasn't been greenlit by the studio. It is currently in early development stages at Lionsgate.

"American Psycho" is based on the 1991 Bret Easton Ellis novel of the same name. It is set in Manhattan during the Wall Street boom of the late 1980s and follows an investment »

American Psycho Remake Moves Forward at Lionsgate

8 December 2011 10:34 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lionsgate has hired Noble Jones to write and direct a remake of American Psycho, which will mark his feature directorial debut.

The original American Psycho starred Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman, an affluent investment banker in the 1980s, who moonlights as a serial killer. Noble Jones pitched a new take to the studio, which explores how Patrick Bateman adapts to New York City in the 21st Century. The original American Psycho is adapted from Bret Easton Ellis' novel of the same name.

The remake has not been given the green light by Lionsgate yet, and is still in the early stages of development.

Noble Jones, a protege of director David Fincher, has directed several commercials and music videos. He also served as a second unit director on David Fincher's The Social Network.

American Psycho was released April 14th, 2000 and stars Christian Bale, Justin Theroux, Josh Lucas, Bill Sage, »

First trailers for 'The Firm': Can it acquit NBC?

30 November 2011 12:21 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

NBC has launched a couple brief first looks at its new drama The Firm, starring Josh Lucas. Based on John Grisham’s best-selling novel, the NBC version is more like a sequel than an adaptation, picking up years after Mitch McDeere broke free of working for an evil mob-owned law firm. But darn it, they just won’t leave him alone. Can this drama salvage NBC’s season? It better, the network bought a full 22 episodes. See for yourself…

‘Expendables 2’ Director Simon West Circling ‘Dust and Glory’

29 November 2011 1:56 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Simon West is a busy man. The Con Air auteur is in the midst of shooting The Expendables 2, will release Medallion (more on that in a second) just a few months apart from the sequel, and has Thunder Run either in production or prepping to shoot. Somehow, THR informs us that he’s in talks for yet another project, Dust and Glory. Based on Evan Green‘s romantic adventure novel, the story is set during “the 1950s’ Redex trials, which covered more than 10,000 miles of some of the toughest racing terrain in Australia, if not the world.” The actual plot — adapted by Robert Lewis Galinsky and noted as “a cross between Mad Max and Jewel of the Nile” — follows “the rivalry between an American hotshot and an Australian legend.”

Top Cat Productions and Blue Star Entertainment will be independently producing the film, which is expected to go before cameras this coming summer in Australia. »

My Week With Marilyn Ok, The Artist Trailing The Kings Speech, Ahead of A Dangerous Method

Eddie Redmayne, Dougray Scott, Michelle Williams, My Week with Marilyn Martin Scorsese/Hugo Overperforms, But Not Enough; George Clooney/The Descendants Strong: Box Office At no. 11, Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar raked in $4.95 million at 1,947 sites, as per Box Office Mojo. Written by Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black, and featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Armie Hammer, Judi Dench, Naomi Watts, Josh Lucas, and others, J. Edgar has collected a total of $28.82m after three weekends out. For comparison's sake: Gus Van Sant's Milk, also written by Black and starring Best Actor Oscar winner Sean Penn, cumed at $31.83 million in early 2009. After three weekends in December 2009, Eastwood's Invictus, starring eventual Oscar nominees Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman, had collected $23.04m at more than 2,000 locations. Invictus ended its run with $37.49m in North America. J. Edgar is clearly running ahead, though whether it'll manage to pass the $50m mark — especially if it fails »

'The Firm': First promos for NBC's John Grisham drama

25 November 2011 12:21 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

NBC's new drama "The Firm" is a sort-of sequel to the events dramatized in John Grisham's novel and the 1994 movie starring Tom Cruise. And it would appear that Mitch McDeere is still doing a lot of looking over his shoulder.

The first two teasers for the series, which premieres Sunday, Jan. 8 and moves to Thursdays starting Jan. 12, don't reveal a whole lot about the show, save for this: There's a cabal of lawyers (led by "Battlestar Galactica's" Tricia Helfer) looking to keep Mitch (Josh Lucas) quiet, and Mitch himself is rather upset about that.

"The Firm" is set 10 years after the events of the book. Mitch and his wife, Abby (Molly Parker), have spent some time in witness protection and generally not had an easy time of it. When they resurface, though, bad things start stalking them again.

The money shot in the two 15-second teasers is in the second one below, »

Josh Lucas has landed a top acting award for Red Dog at the 2011 Inside Film Awards in Australia.

Lucas was named Best Actor for his performance in the Australian family movie, which scooped a total of six prizes including Best Director for Kriv Stenders.

British actress Emily Watson was also a big winner - she received the Best Actress trophy for her portrayal of a social worker in Oranges and Sunshine. »

Leonardo DiCaprio/Clint Eastwood/J. Edgar Opens Modestly; Better Box-Office Chances Overseas?

13 November 2011 1:46 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Leonardo DiCaprio, J. Edgar Adam Sandler in Drag/Jack And Jill Below Sandler Box-Office Average; Tower Heist Down 45% At no. 5 on the domestic box-office chart this weekend, Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar raked in $11.47 million — at the very lower end of expectations — as per studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. The J. Edgar Hoover biopic starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Hoover, Armie Hammer as his associate and intimate companion Clyde Tolson, and Naomi Watts as FBI secretary Helen Gandy averaged an acceptable — though not very promising — $6,005 at 1,910 locations. As mentioned in a couple of previous posts, comparisons to Gus Van Sant's Oscar-nominated Milk, which were possible on Wednesday, are impossible to make at this stage. Written by J. Edgar's Dustin Lance Black, the 2008 drama starring Sean Penn as gay San Francisco politician Harvey Milk never played at more than 900 North American sites — and that expansion took place around Oscar time, »
