Justice League Dark movie loses another director

23 May 2017 9:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini May 24, 2017

DC's magical Justice League Dark movie needs a new director, as Doug Liman departs the project.

Get ready for a revolving door of Justice League Dark directors. Just weeks after saying that the movie had "a take on it that I love," director Doug Liman has left the Justice League Dark movie. To complicate matters further, the project, which has been known as Dark Universe for some time, probably needs a new title, since Universal has just decided to name their shared cinematic monsterverse Dark Universe, too.

Variety broke the news of Liman's departure, citing his involvement with Chaos Walking (starring Daisy Ridley) as the reason. When Den Of Geek Us spoke with Liman a few weeks ago, it seems like he already knew that this was going to be an issue, mentioning that "it's going to be about scheduling for me."

Doug Liman Parts Ways With Justice League Dark Movie (Exclusive)

23 May 2017 4:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fans of the “Dark Universe,” a.k.a. “Justice League Dark,” comics are going to have to wait a bit longer for the film adaptation, as it just lost its director.

Sources tell Variety that director Doug Liman has left the project. Insiders say the reason is schedule-related, as Liman is also attached to direct Lionsgate’s “Chaos Walking,” which recently received a greenlight. Sources say the studio has already started meeting with other directors and should have a replacement for Liman lined up shortly.

Warner Bros., the studio behind the adaptation, had no comment.

While plot details are being kept under wraps, “Dark Universe” revolves around a dark Justice League team that consists of John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna, and Etrigan the Demon. The film will play a major role in the new D.C. Cinematic Universe.

Scott Rudin is producing. Michael Gilio is writing the script.

Cannes Film Review: ‘The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)’

21 May 2017 4:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s not easy being raised the child of a celebrated artist. Truth be told, it’s not so great being raised the child of a minor, mostly unrecognized artist either, which is closer to the dynamic writer-director Noah Baumbach wants to explore with “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” a chatty New York comedy featuring the best role in 15 years for Adam Sandler. It’s the story of a messed-up clan that seems never to have heard of therapy, but could definitely use it, and the family crisis that conveniently allows them all to say their peace.

Sandler plays Danny Meyerowitz, the oldest son of seventysomething New York sculptor Harold Meyerowitz (Dustin Hoffman, who’s always been funny, but gets to really sink his teeth into some of his best material here). With no shtick to fall back on, Sandler is forced to act, and it’s a glorious »

Netflix at Cannes: Noah Baumbach’s ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ Won’t Be An Oscar Contender

21 May 2017 4:18 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The reason that “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” which debuted at the Cannes Film Festival this morning, won’t be an Oscar contender is that it will open day and date in a few theaters at the same time that it’s available online. While the now-customary Netflix boos broke out in the morning press screening, they were balanced by applause as well.

And while juror Pedro Almodovar has promised to give both Netflix movies (the other is Bong Joon Ho’s “Okja”) a fair shake, it doesn’t matter if “The Meyerowitz Stories” eventually wins a prize, or snags superb reviews for its acerbic slice of a New York Jewish family or sly comedic actors who deliver emotion as well as laughs. (Our own David Ehrlich is already raving.) If a movie doesn’t take the usual theater route to success, it is unlikely to gain any Oscar traction. »

Jonah Hill to star in Uncut Gems from executive producer Martin Scorsese

19 May 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following hot on the heels of the news that Jonah Hill is reuniting with his Superbad co-star Michael Cera for Adult Swim’s animated pilot Shivering Truth, Variety is reporting that the actor has signed on to star in the upcoming thriller Uncut Gems.

Uncut Gems is being directed by Joshua and Benny Safdie (Good Time) from a script by the Safdies and Ronald Bronstein, with Martin Scorsese executive producing. It will also reunite Jonah Hill with Scott Rudin, producer on Hill’s upcoming directorial debut Mid ’90s. Plot details are scarce, but it’s said that the film is set to take place in the New York City Diamond District.

Hill will next be seen alongside his Wolf of Wall Street co-star Leonardo DiCaprio in The Ballad of Richard Jewell, and will also reunite with Superbad’s Emma Stone for the TV series Maniac. »

Cannes: Why Netflix Can’t Spoil France’s Biggest Celebration of the Movies

18 May 2017 4:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Netflix may dominate conversations about the future of the movies, but the world’s grandest celebration of cinema won’t cave so easily. The 70th Cannes Film Festival often fuels conversations about the state of the industry, so it’s appropriate that the program’s venerated competition features two upcoming Netflix releases, Bong Joon Ho’s sci-fi “Okja” and Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories,” even though the decision has angered French exhibitors livid with the platform’s disinterest in releasing its titles into theaters.

Cannes placated its national industry by adding a new rule requiring competition films to open in French theaters, but this year’s Netflix selections remain in place, which leaves the current battleground between the digital platform and the theatrical business at a stalemate. However, as usual, the Cannes universe — a high-minded symbiosis of chic posturing and intellectualism — has projected a cavalier attitude about the whole ordeal. »

‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ Sequel: ‘The Crown’s’ Claire Foy Frontrunner for Lisbeth Salander

15 May 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After meeting with dozens of actresses for the role, Sony looks to have its next Lisbeth Salander.

Sources tell Variety that “The Crown” star Claire Foy is the top choice to play the rogue hacker in “The Girl in the Spider’s Web,” the latest installment in the “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” series. No offer has been delivered but one is expected soon.

There is one caveat, however, that could stand in the way of a deal closing, according to insiders. Foy is also meeting with Damien Chazelle for the female lead in his next film at Universal, “First Man,” which stars Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong. Sources at Universal say that no offer has been delivered for that role.

Sony had no comment on part.

If Foy does get the offer to star in “The Girl in the Spider’s Web,” she would take on the role that »

‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ First Look: Noah Baumbach and Adam Sandler Compete for the Palme d’Or

10 May 2017 6:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Meyerowitz Stories” has been singled out in the Cannes Film Festival lineup ever since the first announcement that it would compete for the Palme d’Or. Cannes festival president Pierre Lescure and general delegate Thierry Frémaux announced the lineup in April, but then noted that they had forgotten to mention one title: Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories.”

Netflix had acquired the worldwide rights to the film just days before the Cannes announcement, which made “Meyerowitz” a controversial title, as France treasures the theatrical experience. Cannes even had to address the issue on Wednesday, denying reports that it was considering dropping the film and announcing new rules that, starting next year, will require competition films to show in French theaters. Cannes also underscored that another Netflix title, Bong Joon-ho’s “Okja,” was not being dropped from the lineup either. »

First Images from Todd Haynes’ ‘Wonderstruck,’ Safdies’ ‘Good Time,’ and Noah Baumbach’s ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’

9 May 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

So much is happening in our terrible, awful, horrible world that it can be easy to forget about the Cannes Film Festival kicking off in just one week. But what a festival it shall be! Likely so good, in fact, that it’s just as easy to overlook the presence of a new Todd Haynes picture — for a short while longer. Our first look at his Carol follow-up, Wonderstruck, arrived today in the form of three stills showcasing stars Julianne Moore, Millicent Simmonds, Oakes Fegley, and Jaden Michael. Much? No. A source of excitement? We need not even explain.

His adaptation of the novel by Hugo author Brian Selznick follows a story that oscillates between two deaf children: a boy, Ben (Fegley), in Minnesota circa 1977 who’s dealing with the death of his mother (Michelle Williams); and a girl, Rose (Simmonds), in New Jersey circa 1927 who ventures to New York to meet her idol, »

Bryan Cranston’s ‘The Dangerous Book for Boys’ Lands Series Order at Amazon

8 May 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amazon has handed a series order to “The Dangerous Book for Boys,” a comedy series from Bryan Cranston and Greg Mottola, Variety has confirmed.

The six-episode, half-hour series is based on Conn and Hal Iggulden’s book of the same name. The book itself has no plot per se, but instead offers boys advice on a wide variety of topics like fishing, juggling, histories of famous battles, and marbles, among many others. The book became a bestseller in the U.K. in 2006 and has since been adapted for the U.S. and other markets.

The series will follow a boy named Wyatt and his brothers as they deal with the death of their father. He leaves his sons a copy of “The Dangerous Book for Boys,” which inspires a fantasy world in which Wyatt reconnects with his father while learning important life lessons.

Cranston first put the book into development as a series in 2014, which Variety exclusively »

Netflix Original Films can be widely divergent in quality. For every high profile effort like “Beasts Of No Nation,” “War Machine,” and “Okja” there are tons of other projects you probably never heard of like “Deidra & Laney Rob A Train” (which debuted at Sundance to almost zero buzz) and “Take The 10” (a comedy atrocity released in January starring Josh Peck and Tony Revolori).

We’re knocking on the door of summer, and that means lots of big properties are ready to be unleashed. But it’s not too late to read books exploring some recent films, as well as some new works about Sherry Lansing, film noir, and Steve McQueen. Let’s start with a unique look at David Lynch’s Twin Peaks.

The Essential Wrapped In Plastic: Pathways to Twin Peaks by John Thorne

When Twin Peaks debuted on ABC in 1990, there were no message boards in which fans could argue and dissect the latest episodes. Starting in 1992, however, there was Wrapped In Plastic, the immortal Peaks’ fanzine. Just in time for the series return on Showtime is The Essential Wrapped In Plastic: Pathways to Twin Peaks. Here, Wip co-editor John Thorne brings together some of the publication’s most vital, important essays. Every episode is included, but what makes the book »
