Qed Buys ‘Yellowstone Falls’; 52-Page Spec About Wolves Battling Mutated Humans

14 April 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Breaking: While we’ve got plenty of projects that mix genre staples from zombies to wolves, the town went wild for a highly unusual combination. In heated bidding, Qed emerged victorious and acquired Yellowstone Falls, a spec script by Dan Kunka, who most recently sold his script Bermuda Triangle to Warner Bros, with Charles Roven and Madhouse producing. Deal was six figures against near seven-figure purchase price if the movie gets made. This script is unusual in that it was 52 pages, with few human characters and essentially no dialogue. The action begins after an apocalyptic event that saps the humanity from most of the mutated humans that remain. At its core, it’s the story of a mother wolf, separated from her mate as the rest of the pack flees to safety, is forced to defend her cubs from the oncoming swarm. It sounds like those spare nature-based movies Jean Jacques Annaud makes, »

Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, & Holly Hunter Join the Cast of Batman vs. Superman

With filming for Zack Snyder's follow-up to Man of Steel set to being very soon, casting for the movie has obviously been stepped up.  Just now, Warner Bros. issued a press release announcing that three new actors have been cast in the movie for various roles.  Come inside to check out all the details!  

If you're hoping for information on who they'll be playing...you may be a little disappointed.  All the press release really says is that they were cast for characters created specifically for the film.  Meaning they don't already have a comic book counterpart.  Either way, it's really nice to hear some sort of official information on this film, considering how quiet things have been lately on the upcoming DC Superhero flick:

Wherefore Art Thou, Juliet? In Latest Pic Migration, She Moves From Sony To Warners

10 March 2014 9:03 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Warner Bros is in, and Sony Pictures and New Regency are out of The Juliet, an adaptation of the Alfred Bester short story that was developed by Charles Roven’s Atlas Entertainment. The film has a script by Henry Bean that is being rewritten by Paul Haggis, and Snow White And The Huntsman helmer Rupert Sanders is attached to direct. At one point it looked like Sony would make it this spring. Atlas’s Roven and Alex Gartner are producing with Frank Beddor of Automatic Pictures. It makes me wonder, what is going on in Hollywood? I have been around long enough that I actually broke the story of when Warner Bros, clashing with John Hughes over $2 million in budget, allowed Fox to grab Home Alone and turn the $18 million film into a $477 million worldwide gross blockbuster. After that, studios used to never let projects go for fear of being embarrassed, »
