‘Marauders’ Review: Bruce Willis Is Too Old For This Sh*t

11 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Bruce Willis has been “too old for this shit” since he starred in “Die Hard” when he was 33. Steely-eyed apathy has always been his brand — he’s not giving a great performance unless it feels like he and his titanic hangover would rather be literally anywhere else on Earth. He’s not Bruce Willis because he looked like a badass when he was killing his rapist with a samurai sword in “Pulp Fiction,” he’s Bruce Willis because he pulled it off while managing to spend all of his other scenes in that movie looking like he was vaguely mad at us for encouraging his career.

Weary disinterest was his way of letting audiences know that he cared. Unfortunately for Willis, that dynamic has resulted in a dire consequence: Viewers are so attuned to his careful and considered strain of weariness that it’s blindingly obvious when he actually phones something in, »

Exclusive Interview and Photos: Director Gabriel Carrer Talks The Demolisher

Shock talks to Canadian filmmaker Gabriel Carrer about The Demolisher and future projects. With the Eli Roth redux of Michael Winner’s venerable vigilante classic Death Wish on the horizon, it behooves all fans of such violent, vengeance-drenched psyche-thrillers to look to the North. Why? Because a Canadian lad named Gabriel Carrer has already remade Death…

Eli Roth Takes a People Staffer Swimming with Baby Blacktip Sharks and Stingrays

28 June 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For a full week, I dove in the Pacific with everything from a pack of Lemon sharks to a single 17-ft Tiger shark, but the moment we jumped in the water with stingrays, I was beyond spooked. This experience should have been a piece of cake, especially given the last few days of intense diving, where I literally could have lost my life to a shark, but if I never have to see another stingray I'll be ok with that. Our Discovery Channel Shark Week crew couldn't have disagreed with me more. From Shark After Dark host Eli Roth (who »

Want to direct horror films? Shudder Labs is here to kickstart your nightmares

28 June 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Similar to the famed Sundance Labs that have helped foster the careers of such future A-list filmmakers as Quentin Tarantino and Cary Fukunaga, Shudder Labs -- which held its inaugural edition earlier this month -- invites a group of select filmmakers to attend a week-long retreat with established industry names to take their works-in-progress to the next level. The difference? Shudder Labs focuses its mentorship efforts on filmmakers working in the horror genre, providing them with the guidance of such genre vets as writer/director Larry Fessenden (Wendigo, The Last Winter), Snowfort Pictures CEO Travis Stevens and Lindsay Peters, Industry Director of the genre-centric Fantasia Film Festival and Director of the Frontières International Co-Production Market. Shudder, for those unfamiliar, is a streaming service that focuses exclusively on horror films, and at $4.99 a month it's an agreeably cheap way for fans of the genre to gain streaming access to films they probably won't find on Netflix. »

Rumour: Sony planning Silver Sable movie

25 June 2016 3:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you some comments from Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman Tom Rothman, who stated that Sony plans to build a “whole Spider-Man universe” alongside the upcoming Spidey reboot which the studio is co-producing with Marvel Studios.

Well, it’s only taken a few hours for us to get our first rumour as to what that universe might entail, with Jeff Sneider claiming on Popcorn Talk that Sony is talking to screenwriter Abi Morgan (Shame) about scripting a Silver Sable movie. There’s also talk that Eli Roth (Knock Knock) could be in contention for the director’s chair.

First debuting in The Amazing Spider-Man #265 (hence the reason she’s part of the Spidey rights package), Silver Sable is the leader of the Wild Pack, a mecenary team who track down war criminals. The character was previously rumoured to be part of Sony’s female-led spinoff from The Amazing Spider-Man, »

How Eli Roth Is Fostering the Next Generation of Indie Horror Directors

24 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Eli Roth is having a very good week. On Monday, the horror writer-director-producer officially signed on to direct the remake of the 1974 vigilante action film “Death Wish,” with Bruce Willis attached to star. Then on Tuesday, Roth landed a horror directing gig for the adaptation of the “Aleister Arcane” comic book, starring Jim Carrey in the lead role. As if that wasn’t enough, on Wednesday, the Jon Watts horror film “Clown” that Roth produced hit #1 on iTunes’s horror section. The film opened in theaters on June 17.

The story of a loving father who dresses up as a clown for his son’s birthday — only to find the suit is cursed and won’t come off — “Clown” famously started as a fake movie trailer Watts posted on YouTube that said “From master of horror Eli Roth” even though Roth had nothing to do with the project. He was so impressed with the trailer, »

Watch: Film Director Eli Roth and a People Staffer Come Face-to-Face with a 17-foot Tiger Shark

23 June 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As a brand new diver, jumping into the ocean in search of a tiger shark can be a very daunting task. For one, the tiger shark comes second only to Great Whites in attacking humans. But still, there I was in the French Polynesian islands with the Discovery Channel and Eli Roth about to go in search of one. It was just a month earlier in New York City, when my editor asked if I wanted to go diving with sharks in Tahiti for Shark Week.

Film Review: ‘The Duel’

22 June 2016 6:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you’re an actor playing someone who’s sick and twisted and evil, almost nothing will get you into character quite like a startling new look. That tends to be the case whether the look comes courtesy of the makeup department (think Heath Ledger’s Joker in “The Dark Knight” or Robert De Niro’s Al Capone in “The Untouchables”) or, simply, the electric razor. In “The Duel,” Woody Harrelson plays some sort of lethally charismatic Southern cult leader in the years after the Civil War, and his performance, which is all about being the kind of person no one can take their eyes off of, begins with his look: a shaved head, which seems like no big deal, but with matching shaved eyebrows (and occult tattooish squiggles in their place), all of which give Harrelson the appearance of a death-row psycho, or an overgrown baby, or maybe a strutting alien. »

Eli Roth to direct Jim Carrey in Aleister Arcane

22 June 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After more than a decade in development, Steve Niles’ horror comic Aleister Arcane looks set to hit the big screen, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Amblin Entertainment has picked up a package which has Eli Roth (The Green Inferno) directing, Jim Carrey (Dumb and Dumber To) starring, and Jon Croker (The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death) penning the script.

Published in 2004, Aleister Arcane follows “a Los Angeles weatherman named Aleister Green who returns to his hometown to host a midnight horror show a la Elvira. Under the guise of a mad scientist named Aleister Arcane, Green performed little skits until the local sponsors balked at the gore. An incident with two kids leads to him to be put on trial, breaking his spirit and into an early grave. Not long after, grisly activities begin to occur and only the kids have the power to thwart the curse »

Jim Carrey And Eli Roth Will Bring The Horror In Aleister Arcane

22 June 2016 3:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In many respects, the union of Jim Carrey and Eli Roth makes a lot of sense. Both have crafted curious careers for themselves, and continue to return to our screens, with new and unexpected projects. They are both exciting creators – not just because of their unpredictable choices, but because their work is so resoundingly hit-and-miss. When they succeed, it is excellent, but when they fail, it is forgettable – and you can never quite be sure which will be which. Now that Aleister Arcane is bringing them together, however, the finished film will hopefully feature at the successful end of that spectrum.

Aleister Arcane is based upon the 2004 graphic novel of the same name, written by Steve Niles. The author is no stranger to cinematic adaptations of his work – having created 30 Days Of Night (and having written the screenplay for it), and having a further three properties currently optioned for movie development. »

This is a big week for Eli Roth. Just yesterday, the Knock Knock and The Green Inferno director became attached to direct Paramount’s remake of Death Wish, a project that’s had quite a few directors, most notably Joe Carnahan (The Grey), split from the Bruce Willis-led film over the years.

Eli Roth to Direct Horror Film Aleister Arcane, Starring Jim Carrey

21 June 2016 4:22 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Jim Carrey will executive produce and star in a new Eli Roth film about a late night horror TV show host seeking revenge from beyond the grave.

Earlier today, THR broke the news that Eli Roth will step behind the camera for Aleister Arcane, an adaptation of Steve Niles’ 2004 comic book series of the same name that centers on a curse cast on a small town by the recently deceased Aleister Arcane, a weatherman-turned-horror-tv-host who was pushed off the air by upset viewers.

Jim Carrey will executive produce the project, which is moving forward at Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, and while his character in the film has yet to be revealed, the titular role sounds right up his alley. Jon Croker (The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death) will adapt Niles’ comic book for the big screen.

Yesterday, it was revealed that Roth will also direct the Bruce Willis »
