Padilha To Direct Hostage Drama "Entebbe"

14 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jose Padilha ("Elite Squad," "Narcos") is in negotiations to direct the ticking-clock thriller "Entebbe" for Working Title and StudioCanal.

The 1976 true story follows four hijackers - two Palestinian and two German - who took a plane hostage and diverted it to land in Uganda while they demanded the release of dozens of Palestinian and pro-Palestinian prisoners.

The action follows the hijackers, the hostages, the flight crew, then-Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and future Pm Shimon Peres trying to decide whether to negotiate or launch the raid to free the hostages. Greg Burke ('71") is penning the screenplay.

Studiocanal Targets European Franchises, Production in Europe, China, (Exclusive)

22 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Taking a leaf out of Hollywood’s book, and following “Paddington’s” $265 million worldwide take, Studiocanal will dive into some of the biggest IP franchises in Europe, said Didier Lupfer, Studiocanal’s new chairman-ceo, at Berlin. In a first and exclusive interview with Variety, he laid out his vision for very possibly the most powerful film-tv production-distribution-sales company in Europe.

Dressed in Parisian informal chic – a blue striped shirt, brown jacket – Lupfer, appointed in late September, also revealed the three big pillars of Studiocanal’s movie production growth: Family/animation entertainment, in the vein of “Paddington”; big director-driven fare; and “action-orientated movies” like “Unknown,” “Non-Stop,” which grossed $213 million worldwide for Studiocanal, or the upcoming “The Commuter,” re-teaming Liam Neeson and director Jaume Collet-Serra.

Among the director-driven movies, Studiocanal is partnering with “Narcos” director Jose Padilha to develop “Entebbe,” about the 1976 Air France flight hijacking and dramatic Entebbe Airport rescue of 103 hostages. »
