Tesco goes to Trolleywood

6 August 2010 4:02 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The UK's biggest food retailer is about to take on Hollywood in the movie-making business. Patrick Barkham goes on the Paris set of Tesco's first film, with Charles Dance and Trudie Styler

A glittering adaptation of a Jackie Collins novel. An award-winning cast. Thirteen gazelle-like models in a top Paris hotel. Viewed from one angle, Paris Connections could be the big-budget production to put the glamour back into British film-making. In a less flattering light – say, the strip lights of a supermarket – the end result could look very different.

Because this is not just any movie. This is a Tesco movie. The supermarket giant that inhabits virtually every corner of our existence has this year moved into film-making with a straight-to-dvd movie or, as its makers prefer, a "DVD Premiere". This autumn, Paris Connections will go on sale exclusively in Tesco stores. If successful, it could revolutionise the movie business, »

According to reports, actress Lily Collins ("The Blind Side") will star in a $12 million, live-action "Romeo and Juliet" feature, scheduled to start on location in Italy, October 4, from a screenplay by writer Julian Fellowes ("Gosford Park").

Director Gabriele Muccino ("Seven Pounds") will produce with Ileen Maisel and Mark Ordesky from Amber Entertainment. Carlo Carlei ("The Flight of the Innocent" will direct the 'teen romance' feature, set in the period time frame of author William Shakespeare’s original play.

Regarded as archetypal 'star-cross'd lovers', the "Romeo and Juliet' characters, whose deaths ultimately unite their feuding families, was first published in 1597.

In the classic, Shakespeare switches between comedy and tragedy to heighten tension, expands minor characters and uses sub-plots to embellish his romantic story.

David R. Ellis Has Bad Luck

9 February 2010 11:01 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

What if we lived in a world where all of our superstitions were true? What if you had to avoid all the cracks of the sidewalk, pick up a penny when you saw it, and shriek in horror should a black cat cross your path? Welcome to the world of Bad Luck!

Producer Mark Ordesky (Lord of the Rings) is set to bring us a new thriller in the vein of the fun found in the Final Destination franchise (except for the last two entries), a film penned by David Schow that asks, "What if all our superstitions were real and deadly?" There's only one director out there with the chops to tackle such a tale -- David R. Ellis. Let's hope he gets back on track with this one. Unless the 3D gimmick is once again imposed on us, I think we'll be okay.
