Neil Marshall to direct sci-fi revenge thriller The Sentence

30 July 2015 5:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After making the jump to television for the likes of Game of Thrones, Black Sails, Hannibal and Constantine, it looks like Neil Marshall has found his next big screen project, with Deadline reporting that the filmmaker has signed on to helm The Sentence.

The project, which is being financed by EuropaCorp, is described as “a futuristic revenge thriller in the vein of Death Wish“, and has been scripted by Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt (Olympus Has Fallen).

The Sentence will mark Marshall’s first feature film since 2010’s Centurion, although he has directed a segment of the upcoming anthology horror Tales of Halloween.  He also remains attached to a remake of Troll Hunter, as well as The Last Voyage of Demeter and Hellfest.

Fantasia 2015 Review: Tales Of Halloween, A Pumpkin-Flavored Love Letter From Hell

30 July 2015 12:04 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Horror anthologies have made a pretty healthy comeback in the last few years; some are ok, some are regrettable, and some have awesome production values as well as good stories, such as Tales Of Halloween, which sold out its world premiere screening at Fantasia last week. Created by director Axelle Carolyn, Tales features 11 directors helming 10 tales of bad behavior, wickedness, madness, and spooky fun, with an animated opening sequence by Ashley Thorpe. Made under the umbrella collective of "The October Society," this film showcases the talents of horror directors Carolyn, Neil Marshall, Darren Lynn Bousman, John Skipp, Andrew Kasch, Lucky McKee, Adam Gierasch, Dave Parker, Mike Mendez, Ryan Schifrin, and Paul Solet. Adrienne Barbeau pretty much reprises her The Fog DJ character in a sense, her...

Neil Marshall Hands Out A "Sentence"

29 July 2015 6:42 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though starting out as a feature filmmaker with the likes of "The Descent," "Doomsday" and "Centurion," director Neil Marshall has made more of a name for himself in recent years on television helming key episodes of big-budget shows like "Game of Thrones," "Black Sails" and "Hannibal".

He'll soon return to the big screen though as he's been set to direct the futuristic revenge thriller "The Sentence" for EuropaCorp. Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt ("Olympus Has Fallen") have penned the script which is described as being in the vein of "Death Wish".

Marc Helwig will produce. No word on when production is slated to begin, or how his commitment to this will impact his ability to work on various TV shows.

Neil Marshall Handing Down The Sentence

28 July 2015 4:37 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Fresh off of work on portmanteau project Tales Of Halloween, Neil Marshall has set up a new solo effort. He’ll direct The Sentence, which is being described as a futuristic revenge thriller.The concept, which emerged back when Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp agreed to finance the film, is being pitched as a blend of Death Wish and The Purge. Olympus Has Fallen writers Creighton Rothenberger and Katrina Benedikt have cranked out a script set in a world where an eye for an eye is the law and the family of someone killed has 24 hours to take revenge. In the movie’s case, the story starts when a father kills a criminal to protect his son during a home invasion, only to be confronted by the man’s dangerous comrades when they take their chance for legal retribution. It sounds like something Marshall can excel at, harking back to the siege mentality of Dog Soldiers. »

‘Hannibal 3×08: The Great Red Dragon’ Review

26 July 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“There is no name for what this man is.”

Well, here’s a horse of a different color. Hannibal has jumped ahead three years, upending its status quo even as it calls back repeatedly to its pilot. Jack recruits Will to rejoin the FBI, Will visits Hannibal seeking an expert consultant, and Will visits a blood-spattered house and slips into the murderer’s mind. The game’s the same, but the players have changed. And what a difference it makes. Will, brittle and twitchy as ever, has found peace and family with Molly and her 11-year-old son. Hannibal, stripped of dignity and freedom as a result of his ploy to remain close to Will, is bumping up against the limits of his memory palace while a bitter Alana chafes at Chilton’s company at the Baltimore Hospital for the Criminally Insane.

Hannibal, Ep. 3.08, “The Great Red Dragon”: Armitage is gripping, physical as Dolarhyde

25 July 2015 8:49 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hannibal, Season 3, Episode 8, “The Great Red Dragon

Written by Nick Antosca and Steve Lightfoot & Bryan Fuller

Directed by Neil Marshall

Airs Saturdays at 10pm (Et) on NBC

The first half of Hannibal season three has drawn criticism from some (though not this critic) for its artistic, avant-garde approach to exploring the psychology and relationship between Hannibal Lecter and Will Graham. With “The Great Red Dragon”, the series opens a new chapter, returning to its stylistic roots and introducing a new key figure: Francis Dolarhyde. Fans of Thomas Harris’ work have been eagerly anticipating Dolarhyde’s debut and the start of the show’s Red Dragon arc/adaptation, and after this episode, it’s easy to see why. Being unfamiliar with Hannibal’s source material, this critic can’t speak to the faithfulness of showrunner Bryan Fuller and co.’s take on the character, but the glimpses shown here are certainly compelling. »

Kcc: Reitzell expands series’ sound in Hannibal, Ep. 3.08, “The Great Red Dragon”

25 July 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Kate’s Classical Corner: Hannibal, Ep. 3.08, “The Great Red Dragon

As a classical musician, I can’t help but be influenced in my interpretation of Hannibal by its amazing score and soundtrack, composed and compiled by music supervisor Brian Reitzell. This is not intended to be a definitive reading of Reitzell or showrunner Bryan Fuller’s intentions in regards to the music, but rather an exploration of how these choices affect my appreciation of the given episode. Read my review of “The Great Red Dragon” here.

Classical pieces featured:

Alleluia from Exsultate, jubilate, K. 165, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1773): Hannibal experiences his arrest from his mind palace

This famous movement from Mozart’s solo motet, beautifully performed here by boy soprano Aiden Glenn (the piece was originally composed for a castrato), is a fitting choice to represent how Hannibal elects to experience his arrest and incarceration at the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. »

Looking for news, casting, rumours and more about the next season of HBO's Game Of Thrones? Then you've come to the right place...

Latest news

This is news we were all expecting, but welcome nonetheless. After a season's absence, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, aka Bran Stark, will be returning in Game Of Thrones season 6. Presumably, that means catching up with Hodor and Meera, too.

The last we saw the second-to-youngest Stark boy, he had finally completed his quest to meet the Three-Eyed Raven and was about to begin another, a training journey with the Children of the Forest which would teach him more about his Warg powers.

Here's what Hempstead-Wright told The Irish Examiner about Bran's return to the show:

“I can’t say a lot but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions."
