Willem Dafoe chats to us about Clear & Present Danger, Murder On The Orient Express, White Sands and our feet.

An odd start to an interview as I walked into a comfy room to talk to Willem Dafoe for a bit. We ended up talking about feet, specifically that mine were big. He sought to assure me that my feet were fine, to try and make me feel better about myself. There’s a measure of a man for you.

American Film Market Opens in Brutally Uncertain Time for Indie Movie Biz

American Film Market Opens in Brutally Uncertain Time for Indie Movie Biz
Amid a brutally uncertain environment for movies, the American Film Market opens its 38th edition Wednesday at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel.

Forecasts are for mostly sunny weather — a contrast with the unpredictable conditions for the independent sector for both buyers and sellers. That state of affairs is front and center due to trio of factors: a brutal year at the domestic box office with 2017 revenues lagging last year by 5%; majors focusing on franchise tentpoles; and questions surrounding traditional distribution through theaters.

Jonathan Kier, president of international sales and distribution at Sierra/Affinity, said Afm remains vital to the independent film world.

“It’s the most important market after Cannes,” he noted. “It’s a pleasure because buyers want to make pre-buys before films go into production. The buyers have been asking us not to make the Toronto Film Festival a market since that festival is about selling finished films.”

Kenneth Branagh Journeys From Belfast to the Battle of ‘Dunkirk’ and Beyond
Kenneth Branagh’s career spans 30 years of grand cinematic accomplishments. Able to jump from acting to directing with total ease, the five-time Oscar nominee starred earlier this year in Christopher Nolan’s WWII blockbuster and awards hopeful “Dunkirk.” He is getting ready to release his latest dual effort as actor-cum-director, this November’s “Murder on the Orient Express.” After that, he’ll direct “Artemis Fowl” for Disney.

“It’s been a great year and I’m enjoying every moment of it,” says Branagh, who will be honored with an imprint ceremony Oct. 26 in the Tcl Chinese Theatre forecourt. “Doing ‘Dunkirk’ was an experience I’ll never forget, and considering that I loved Sidney Lumet’s original and Agatha Christie’s novel, I’m excited to be bringing this new version of ‘Orient Express’ to life. I love train films and confined thrillers, and by doing it in 70mm, we really wanted to put the audience on that

Julia Brownell-Penned Family Vineyard Drama Gets Put Pilot Commitment from ABC

Brownell: LincolnCenterTheater/YouTube

Julia Brownell is switching gears from cults to grapes. “The Path” co-executive producer has scored a put pilot commitment from ABC for family drama “Eight Hundred Grapes,” Deadline reports. She’ll exec produce and pen the script.

An adaptation of Laura Dave’s 2015 novel “Eight Hundred Grapes: a Perfect Summer Escape to a Sun-drenched Vineyard,” the potential series centers on Georgia Ford, “who learned some important secrets growing up on her family’s Sonoma vineyard,” the source writes. “The secret number of grapes it takes to make a bottle of wine: eight hundred. The secret ingredient in her mother’s lasagna: chocolate. But just a month before her wedding, 30-year-old Georgia discovers her fiancé has been keeping a secret so explosive that it will change their lives forever. Georgia does what she’s always done: She returns to the family vineyard, expecting the comfort of her long-married parents and her brothers and everything familiar. But it turns out her fiancé is not the only one who’s been keeping secrets.”

Phillip Noyce (“Roots,” “The Giver”) is directing the pilot.

Brownell most recently worked on Hulu’s “The Path,” a drama about a fictional religion — or cult, depending on who you ask — known as Meyerism and its followers. The show’s second season concluded in April, and Hulu has confirmed it will be returning for a third. Her other credits include “Parenthood,” “Smash,” and “Hung.”

Julia Brownell-Penned Family Vineyard Drama Gets Put Pilot Commitment from ABC was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

The strange sex scene of Supernova

Simon Brew Oct 9, 2017

Supernova is a film with a messy story behind it. And a very, very odd sex scene...

Supernova is a film that started promisingly. Originated in 1990 under the title of Dead Star, the idea – as pitched by writer William Malone – would be for something akin to Dead Calm, just in space. Dead Calm is a great choice of influence too, with Phillip Noyce’s out-on-the-water thriller using isolation expertly, as Billy Zane puts in one of his best, and most menacing, screen performances.

Dead Star was set to follow a similar idea, and that meant a modest budget at most – around $6m was cited – would be needed to tell the story of alien artefacts being brought back to Earth. Enquires were made of H R Giger, who duly did some concept art work to help promote the script.

MGM was the studio that bit, although it had ideas.
