Mike Newell’s Adaptation Guernsey Eyes Rosamund Pike For Lead Role

16 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few would argue that Rosamund Pike stole the show in David Fincher’s psychological thriller Gone Girl, portraying an unhinged sociopath that still sends shivers down our spines to this day. Imagine our disappointment, then, when the Oscar-nominated actress followed up Fincher’s opus with middling thriller Return To Sender.

No matter, because Deadline reports that Pike is circling her next potential project, and it’s one that goes by the name Guernsey. Mike Newell of Four Weddings and a Funeral fame is behind the camera, and it’s understood that Pike is currently in contention to play the role of Juliet Ashton – a role that’s attracted the likes of Kate Winslet, Lily James and Rebecca Ferguson in recent times.

Billed as an adaptation of Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows’ best-seller, Guernsey is the name of a quaint island off the British coast, with the story chronicling Ashton »

Why Amy Dunne in Gone Girl is one of the Most Terrifying Women in Horror

4 February 2016 7:59 AM, PST | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Why Rosamund Pike’s Amy Dunne is one of horror cinema’s most malevolent creations. What’s in the box? This is a question that assumes a murderous significance in director David Fincher and writer Gillian Flynn’s adaptation of Flynn’s novel, Gone Girl. Fincher has of course forced us to ask this question before and twenty years later…

Fox Developing Murder Mystery ‘A Simple Favor’ as Movie (Exclusive)

29 January 2016 3:54 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox 2000 has bought movie rights to Darcey Bell’s upcoming murder mystery “A Simple Favor,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The pre-emptive deal for “A Simple Favor” was closed Thursday and has not yet been set with a producer. The story has been pitched as being in the vein of Gillian Flynn’s 2012 novel “Gone Girl” and Paula Hawkins’ 2015 debut “The Girl on the Train” — two best-selling thrillers in which a female protagonist disappears from a seemingly perfect relationship, part of the “domestic noir” genre.

“A Simple Favor” centers on three small-town characters: a mommy blogger, her best friend who disappears suddenly and the latter’s husband. The story includes betrayals and reversals, a dead body and the revolving question of who is duping whom.

Bell is a pre-school teacher in Chicago. The publication rights to “A Simple Favor” have been sold as part of a two-book to Harper Collins for »

Happy 40th Birthday, ‘Laverne & Shirley’!

27 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

40 years ago today, Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams schlemiel-schlamazeled their way into TV history when “Laverne & Shirley” premiered on ABC. Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney, two roommates who worked as bottle-cappers in Milwaukee, had made their debut on “Happy Days” the November before their own spin-off started airing on January 27, 1976. The zany antics of “Laverne & Shirley” quickly shot to No. 1 in the ratings, even surpassing the viewership of “Happy Days.” Williams departed the show after she became pregnant with her first child. As to why she left instead of scheduling around the birth of her baby, Williams has said, “When it came time for me to sign my contract for that season, they had me working on my due date to have my baby. And I said, ‘You know, I can't sign this.’ And it went back and forth and back and forth and it just never got worked out. »

Oscar So White: This Is Bigger Than Will Smith

22 January 2016 5:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Academy's out of order! The Smiths are out of order! The whole system's out of order! Not to get too deep in paraphrasing Al Pacino's 1979 drama …and justice for all. as we try to make sense of this year's #oscarssowhite controversy, but the point stands: It really is the system that's out of order. (We'll get to the Smiths.) It's easy to blame the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for this year's lack of diversity in Oscar acting nominations. (And last year's.) After all, it's their show. Their 3,000 some-odd members are notoriously older, white and male. They »

Dark Places review – Charlize Theron in a middling to dull thriller adaptation

21 January 2016 2:15 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The film version of Gillian Flynn’s cold-case chiller finds Theron’s unconvincingly downbeat massacre survivor facing her past

The success of Gillian Flynn’s mystery novel Gone Girl, filmed with Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck, has now given us this middling screen adaptation of her cold-case thriller Dark Places. There are moments of macabre horror here, and interesting nods to Capote’s In Cold Blood, as well as America’s satanic abuse scare and the Robin Hood Hills case. It also, incidentally, brings in a child molestation sub-plot accompanied by Joan Jett’s cover of Gary Glitter’s Do You Wanna Touch Me on the soundtrack: it’s difficult to tell if the provocation is deliberate. All in all, its contrivances might have been indulged more satisfyingly in a TV miniseries.

Our 100 Most-Anticipated Films of 2016

11 January 2016 1:10 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After highlighting 50 films that are most certainly worth seeing this year, it’s time we venture into the unknown. While a multitude of 2016 previews simply regurgitate a list of dated releases, we’ve set out to focus on 100 films we’re genuinely looking forward to, regardless of their marketing budgets. While some might not have a release date — let alone any confirmed festival premiere — most have wrapped production and will likely debut at some point in 2016, so make sure to check back for updates over the next twelve months and beyond.

It should be noted that there are a number of films we’re greatly looking forward to, but whose release we aren’t confident about, including the next features from Claire Denis and Michael Haneke. (Rest assured, however, that we’ll have updates as they come in.)

Lastly, despite not coming out last year, as was planned, Orson Welles »

The 100 Best Films of the 21st Century (So Far) - Part 1: #100-76

5 January 2016 4:34 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A new year means an opportunity to reflect on the past. This is our list of the 100 best films of the last 15 years, Part 1 #100 through 76.

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn’t stopped films from breaking box office records, »

Golden Globes 2016: The Ultimate Party Guide

4 January 2016 11:47 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

While this awards season’s front-runners are less concrete, the week-long roster of ritualistic parties leading up to the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday will follow a tried-and-true formula — with a few exceptions.

Audi and W Magazine will join revelry forces, rather than throwing rival cocktail bashes on Thursday; Art for Amnesty joins the party with a first-time brunch fostering free speech on Friday; Showtime will be celebrating solo, rather than teaming up with partners CBS and the CW; and Amazon — which landed its first Golden Globe last year, and has both winner “Transparent” and newcomer “Mozart in the Jungle” in the running this year — will throw an inaugural post-Globes celebration (having gained some practice, with its first-time Emmy bash last fall). The move seems fitting, in a year when digital (namely, Netflix) surpasses networks with the most nominations, breaking HBO’s 14-year streak of domination and leading the TV race. »
