Will Ferrell Eyes Role Of Russ Meyer In 'Russ & Roger Go Beyond'

10 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Hollywood has been trying to bring the saga of Russ Meyer on the big screen, and why not? The filmmaker had an outsized life, and loved uh, outsized women, and put his own, weird mark on cinematic history. Way back in 2011, David O. Russell was planning a Russ Meyer biopic, written by “Lovelace” screenwriter Merritt Johnson, but that seems to have disappeared. However, last fall a new project popped up titled, "Russ & Roger Go Beyond," and it will detail one of most curious chapters in the lives of both Russ Meyer and legendary film critic Roger Ebert, with a big star eyeballing one of the lead roles. Deadline reports that Will Ferrell is circling the part of Russ Meyer in the Christopher Cluess (“The Simpsons,” “SNL”)-penned movie that will tell the tale of Ebert and Meyer, who traveled to Hollywood and the 20th Century Fox lot to write “Beyond Valley of the Dolls. »

An Evening with Isabelle Huppert, the star of Catherine Breillat's Abuse Of Weakness (Abus De Faiblesse) was held at the Film Society of Lincoln Center with John Waters.

Marguerite Duras, Jean-Luc Godard, Nathalie Sarraute ending with a David O. Russell - Lily Tomlin moment rounded out the evening.

Huppert will be starring with Cate Blanchett and Elizabeth Debicki in the Sydney Theatre Company production of Jean Genet's The Maids, starting next week during the Lincoln Center Festival. »

Love According to 21st Century Movies

27 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Love is a many-splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love!” so says Ewan McGregor in Baz Luhrmann’s classic romantic tragedy, Moulin Rouge!

It’s a thought that has persisted in cinema for well over a century. Love is what motivates characters; it’s a dream they want to realize, a reality they have to face, the content of their musings in their nightly diary entries.

Decades of cinema have seen the nature of other genres completely overturned. More and more, horrors are gearing towards high-concept supernatural thrillers over human killers; comedies are willing to get raunchier, with a whole lot more swearing; action movies are only too eager to show off brutal set-pieces; and comic book movies and sci-fi films have the effects capable of making the unreal real.

But romance? How much has that changed? And how much do we really want it to? »

Warner Bros. wants Oscar-winning 'Argo' writer to pen 'Justice League'

25 July 2014 3:19 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Over at Deadline Mike Fleming is reporting something that has been floating around in the ether for a while now: that Warner Bros. wants Oscar-winning "Argo" scribe Chris Terrio to pen the studio's planned superhero team-up film "Justice League." It seems natural that the studio would go in that direction. First and foremost, Terrio is a writer on "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" with David Goyer. But they keep things tidy and in-house over there, sticking with a close relationship in Zack Snyder for the Superman reboot "Man of Steel," offering up the role of Batman in that film's sequel to Ben Affleck (who has made each of his directorial efforts at Warner Bros.), etc. It also lends an extra bit of cachet to the overall enterprise, as Marvel certainly doesn't have any Oscar-winning screenwriters on their projects. Not that this is a contest (heh). Last we heard from »

Jacki Weaver Talks Magic In The Moonlight, Working with Woody Allen, Psychic Mediums, Life After Animal Kingdom, Equals and More

25 July 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Jacki Weaver is killing it.  She already had a prolific career in Australia, but when Animal Kingdom came out and earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress, she quickly became a hot commodity in America.  Since, she’s delivered some chilling material in Stoker and also scored another Academy Award nomination for her work in David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook, and now she’s adding yet another noteworthy achievement to the list, appearing in a Woody Allen film. In Magic in the Moonlight, Weaver steps in as Grace, a grieving widow who misses her husband so much that she turns to a supposed psychic medium (Emma Stone) to put them back in touch.  While in New York City promoting the film’s release, Weaver sat down with us to talk about the art of nailing a supporting character, working with Allen, whether or not she believes in psychic mediums, »

Uncharted movie receives a concrete release date

24 July 2014 12:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although at the moment the project only has a director attached - Horrible BossesSeth Gordon – Sony has selected a release date of June 10th, 2016 for their blockbuster cinematic adaptation of the Uncharted line of video games.

The decision comes in the wake of a delay for The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Pretty much everything about that franchise has fallen flat on its face, so maybe it’s a wise move on the part of Sony to test out something new as a summer tentpole release.

Uncharted is already arguably the closest video games have ever come to mimicking a cinematic movie-like experience, so adapting it to the big screen should feel natural and actually yield success; a trait not found in most film adaptations of video games.

If you are inexperienced with the line of video games, below is a synopsis of the first game in the franchise, which should »

23 July 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sony’s adaptation of their best-selling video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune has been in the works for years.  David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) was attached several years ago, and after he left the project, Neil Burger (Divergent) stepped in, but he eventually dropped out as well.  Earlier this year, director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) signed on to direct, and last week he said he hopes to begin filming in early 2015.  Now, THR’s Borys Kit has tweeted that the Uncharted release date will be June 10, 2016. For those unfamiliar with the franchise, it follow treasure hunter Nathan Drake, who is the descendant of famous explorer Sir Francis Drake.  The games carry a blockbuster attitude as they take the player around the wisecracking, Indiana Jones-inspired protagonist around the globe to find fabled cities like El Dorado and Shangri-La.  The Uncharted games are pretty much interactive movies if movies featured a »

Robert Downey Jr. Tops Forbes’ Highest-Paid Actors List for Second Year

21 July 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For the second year in a row, “Iron ManRobert Downey Jr. tops the Forbes annual list of highest earning actors with an estimated $75 million since June 2013, the same amount that Forbes estimated the year before.

Downey Jr.’s “Iron Man 3” crossed the billion dollar threshold in 2013. His turn in Jon Favreau’s “Chef” was more of a favor than a moneymaker, but he also appears the mystery drama “The Judge,” opening Oct. 13.

Downey Jr. received notable press for holding out on his contract for upcoming sequel “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” due to salary concerns. Though he has agreed to star in both “Age of Ultron” and an upcoming “The Avengers 3,” neither role has been confirmed.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is the only other actor from last year’s Forbes top five to make this year’s top five again, placing second with $52 million. Johnson will star in “Hercules, »

‘Uncharted’ Starts Production in Early 2015

18 July 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It looks like “Uncharted” is finally going to happen.

The video game movie was in development since 2008 with directors David O. Russell and Neil Burger both brought into the project and later drop out due to delays and controversies.

Its next director Seth Gordon is trying to rearrange his schedule in between the hit television shows “The Goldbergs” and the new NBC series “Marry Me.”

In an interview with Zap2it, he believes he could start filming “Uncharted” sometime during the beginning of 2015. The timing could be perfect, because Naughty Dog is planning to launch the next video “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” in 2015.

No casting announcement has been made at this time. David O. Russell previously recruited Mark Wahlberg to play Nathan Drake, but the casting decision left with him.

"I want it to be a great actor," Gordon said to Zap2it during the TV summer press tour. »

18 July 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A big screen adaptation of the hit video game Uncharted has been in development for years, but it looks like it's almost ready to go into production. Director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) revealed in an interview with Zap2it that the film will start shooting in 2015.

The project has been in development since early 2008, and directors David O. Russell and Neil Burger have both been attached to it at one time, but it looks like Gordon is the lucky charm that will bring it home. According to Gordon, the team "just got the script to a really good place."

He was asked when he expects the feature to start shooting, and he replied with the following:

"I think very early next year. That's the plan. That's like tomorrow, essentially, because the prep is so complicated for the movie."

Life Of Crime Review

17 July 2014 6:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jumping from average romcom to average romcom with all the enthusiasm of a bored teenager slogging through their homework, Jennifer Aniston just keeps on trucking. Romcoms are all well and good for some, but ever since Friends wrapped up at the turn of the millennium her’s has been a career in slow but steady decline. To that effect, Life of Crime is actually a pretty pleasant surprise, with Aniston swapping her usual Girl Next Door role for that of a beleaguered housewife taken hostage by a trio of barely competent crooks. That’s not to say the film’s any good, but I’d much rather watch Aniston try (and largely fail) to work outside her usual range than have to sit through Along Came Polly 2: Rodolfo’s Revenge. 

Life of Crime plays out like a sub-par companion piece to David O. Russell’s American Hustle - which »

Uncharted Movie Exploring Early 2015 Start

17 July 2014 12:34 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Harrison Ford is getting old, and Lucasfilm is still struggling to find ways to keep the Indiana Jones franchise going with or without the actor, but is there a new intrepid explorer already on the scene? Columbia Pictures certainly seems to think it has found one in Nathan Drake, as the studio appears to be moving full steam ahead with an adaptation of Uncharted, the video-game franchise in which that character stars.

A few filmmakers have come aboard and later departed the project, including Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell, Divergent helmer Neil Burger and This is the End duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, but now it appears that Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) has been locked in. While recently speaking with Zap2It, Gordon revealed:

Uncharted Movie Aiming to Start Production in Early 2015

17 July 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

An Uncharted movie has been in development for years.  Fans of the video game series have been eager to see the adventurous story of Nathan Drake come to the screen, and a few different filmmakers have tried to get the project off the ground.  David O. Russell was attached to direct for a while, then eventually dropped out.  Neil Burger (Divergent) flirted with the pic as well, but he too fell by the wayside.  Even Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were approached to pen an adaptation, but they subsequently declined.  Finally, earlier this year, Columbia Pictures tapped Horrible Bosses and The King of Kong director Seth Gordon to take the helm. Gordon hasn't departed the project yet so things appear to be going smoothly, and in fact the filmmaker recently revealed that the plan is to start filming early next year.  More after the jump.

The long awaited Uncharted movie is still alive, so says director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, King Of Kong). In fact, he has revealed plans to start filming early next year! As a big fan of the games, I’ve been intrigued by the progress (or lack thereof) behind the scenes of this movie. David O. Russell was attached to direct at one point, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were approached to write the script but declined, and I shit you not there was even a crazy story about Joe Pesci »
