Mark Wahlberg working with David O. Russell and LeBron James on new projects

22 September 2016 4:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having collaborated on I Heart Huckabees, Three Kings and The Fighter, actor Mark Wahlberg and director David O. Russell are set to team up for a fourth time, with Wahlberg revealing on Facebook that they are currently working on a script for a biopic about Father Stuart Long, a boxer who found God and became a priest.

David O. Russell and I are working on developing a script about Father Stu, who was an amazing priest from Helena, Montana. He was a very tough guy who was a fighter, a football player…anything but a spiritual guy,” said Wahlberg. “He found his calling, and decided, after falling in love with a woman, that he wanted to become a priest. He suffered from this horrible muscular degenerative disease but was still ordained as a priest and passed away, but not before he was able to inspire thousands upon thousands of people. »

7 Films New to Netflix to Watch In October 2016, Including ‘Unforgiven’ and ‘Dazed and Confused’

22 September 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Next month, Netflix offers up a big selection of films of all stripes — modern to classic, animated to live action, Best Picture winners to teen phenomenons — and we’ve picked seven that you should watch as soon as humanly possible, either for the first time or as part of a nostalgic little binge. Enjoy.

1. “Unforgiven” (available October 1)

The winner of four Oscars, including Best Picture, Clint Eastwood’s 1992 film “Unforgiven” is the last Western he directed and starred in, and he made it count. About an aging outlaw tasked with one final job, the film examines the myths of the West and how they’re perverted and distorted over time, as well as the contradictions within established national archetypes. It’s arguably Eastwood’s defining masterpiece, and one of the very best films of the 90s. See it immediately.

2. “Dazed and Confused” (available October 1)

Newswire: Mark Wahlberg and David O. Russell teaming up for another sports biopic

22 September 2016 12:08 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

And so it has been portended that, every five or six years, acclaimed writer-director David O. Russell and megastar actor Mark Wahlberg must come together, so that a new piece of cinematic art is brought to fruition. Since The Fighter came out back in 2010, it’s just about time for the prophecy to once again be realized. And, as Vulture reports, that’s precisely what’s happening. Wahlberg announced via Facebook Live yesterday morning that he and Russell are currently developing what will be their fourth together.

According to the Academy Award-nominee (yes, Mark Wahlberg was nominated for an Oscar), the film will be a sports biopic like The Fighter. The subject this time around will be football player turned Catholic priest Father Stuart Long, who found religion late in life and died two years ago at the age of 50.

22 September 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Mark Wahlberg has been on a roll with director Peter Berg, but a few years before the two started working together, Wahlberg was known more for his creative partnership with David O. Russell. The actor had a hand in the director’s big comeback with The Fighter, but after that drama, the two have yet to make another film together. […]

Mark Wahlberg and David O. Russell Working on Biopic About Father Stuart Long

21 September 2016 2:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Mark Wahlberg and David O. Russell have made three films together, and it now looks as though they’re about to make a fourth. During a Facebook Live post recorded earlier today, the actor revealed that he and his frequent collaborator are at work on a screenplay about athlete-turned-priest Father Stuart Long.

Mark Wahlberg Says He’s Reteaming With David O. Russell For A Film About Father Stuart Long

21 September 2016 1:59 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Even though they’ve made three films together, Mark Wahlberg and David O. Russell never seem to be in any particular rush. Five years passed between “Three Kings” and “I Heart Huckabees,” and another six passed before “The Fighter.” It’s also been six years since that movie, with Russell making “Silver Linings Playbook,” “American Hustle,” and “Joy” in that time, along with the aborted “Nailed!

San Sebastian Film Review: ‘Smoke and Mirrors’

18 September 2016 6:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It may only represent the film’s Spanish distribution route, but there’s something entirely apt-feeling about the familiar Warner Bros. badge at the front of Alberto Rodriguez’s “Smoke and Mirrors”: This slick-as-Brylcreem political thriller may deal entirely in local affairs, but every gleaming nut and bolt of its assembly advertises its helmer’s suitability for U.S. studio fare. Following up his internationally acclaimed regional noir “Marshland” with a larger-scale study of institutional corruption, Rodriguez’s seventh feature proficiently borrows moves from Scorsese, Sorrentino and a surfeit of other stylists to tell the fact-inspired story of sometime spy Francisco Paesa, whose mid-1990s involvement in a former police chief’s embezzlement operation left no line un-double-crossed. A good yarn that nonetheless takes a while to disentangle itself from an overly convoluted setup, “Smoke and Mirrors” is possibly not as universally exportable as the directorial verve it showcases, »

A Brief History of Toronto’s People’s Choice Award and the Oscars

18 September 2016 12:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” has just won the Toronto Film Festival’s People’s Choice Award, which you probably could have seen coming a mile away. The uplifting musical is exactly the kind of film that appeals across the board en route to claiming an audience prize like this, and it’s guaranteed to be a strong presence in the Oscar season this year.

With Emma Stone’s best actress win for the film in Venice last weekend, this launches the film into the season where it is sure to be a dominant title. And should “La La Land” pick up a best picture nomination in a few months, it will join 14 of 38 People’s Choice winners to do so, including the last four in a row. Five of them went on to win the big prize.

Here’s a quick rundown of those 14 titles, and the other nominations they reaped. »

Amy Adams: Queen of Fall Festivals and Heading for Oscars (Exclusive Tiff Video)

15 September 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It’s fun to watch a movie star at the height of her powers.

Amy Adams is in the zone. With five Oscar nominations (“Junebug,” “The Fighter,” “Doubt,” “The Master,” “American Hustle”), the red-haired beauty who can sing and dance (“Enchanted”) and just received a Telluride tribute is taking her pick of the best roles for women.

While Adams had planned to take some recovery time after two David O. Russell movies (she makes no secret that the “American Hustle” shoot was brutal for her), she couldn’t resist taking two plum leads this year.

In a Hollywood movie-star turn, she ably carries Denis Villeneuve’s brainy sci-fi thriller “Arrival” (November 11, Paramount) which wowed audiences and critics in Venice, Telluride, and Toronto. And she co-stars with Jake Gyllenhaal in Tom Ford’s exercise in style, “Nocturnal Animals,” which played Venice and Toronto and kicked up as many passionate supporters as detractors. »

Telluride Film Review: ‘Bleed for This’

2 September 2016 11:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Boxing isn’t just about being able to throw a good punch. It’s just as much about how you take the blows that come at you. In the case of Vinny Pazienza, the hit he didn’t see coming happened outside the ring, when a head-on car accident left him with a broken neck and minimal chances of ever walking again, let alone fighting. And yet he refused to throw in the towel.

A comeback story within a comeback story, “Bleed for This” stars Miles Teller as the boxer who simply wouldn’t quit — the “Pazmanian Devil” who agreed to wear a painful halo brace for six months in hopes that he might heal enough to defend his world-champion title. Teller is terrific, which should come as no surprise to “Whiplash” fans, though no less significant, the film represents a significant return for writer-director Ben Younger, the once-hot “Boiler Room »

[Venice Review] The Bleeder

2 September 2016 9:14 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The Bleeder looks a bit familiar. A film of browns and greens; disco music and ‘70s rock tunes; big haircuts and even bigger lapels. Indeed, in a way reminiscent of recent period efforts such as Black Mass and David O. Russell’s last two outings, The Bleeder is drenched in that particular decade’s elaborate trappings. It also owes a lot to the school of Scorsese, complete with wise-guy narration, east-coast working-class lilts, and a sense of “You gotta be shitting me! Is this really my life?” But it’s a sports film at heart and a rather good one at that, all plucky underdog right hooks and tragic, humiliating falls. In a way, it’s also a film about movies, too. Coming from decorated Québécois filmmaker Philippe Falardeau, it is the true life story of Chuck “The Bayonne Bleeder” Wepner, the man who fought Muhammed Ali after the champ »

Uh Oh: Is It 'Game Over' For The Uncharted Movie?

2 September 2016 9:12 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There may be trouble brewing for the production of Uncharted. The film, based on the hit video game series, has suddenly fallen off of Sony's schedule. Meanwhile, writer Joe Carnahan chimed in to hype up the film's opening sequence.

Here are the tweets that revealed the current fate of Uncharted:

Insert Pac-Man dying SFX here. Sony's video game adaptation of Uncharted, set for 6/30/17, has been removed from their release calendar.

— Exhibitor Relations (@ERCboxoffice) September 1, 2016

And then here's Carnahan's tweet, which came later on:

The opening scene for Uncharted...at least in script form, is really, Really Good.

Joe Carnahan (@carnojoe) September 2, 2016

Carnahan was recently brought onto the project, and it sounds like he's proud of the work he put into the screenplay. It makes sense that the film would finally get officially bumped from its release date- which is less than a year away- since the film doesn't even »

Uncharted Movie Delayed Again, Loses 2017 Release Date

2 September 2016 9:02 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Perhaps Warcraft came as a big warning sign to Sony Pictures that audiences still aren't ready to flock to video game adaptations. The studio has reportedly bumped its upcoming Uncharted movie from their 2017 release slate. At this time, it sounds like the movie, which has long been sitting in development hell, has yet again been delayed indefinitely.

Just over a month ago, it was announced that director Joe Carnahan, perhaps best known for his Liam Neeson wolf thriller The Grey, had come aboard to write a new screenplay for Uncharted. Now, ComingSoon.net claims that Sony Pictures has decided it needs even more time to get the movie right. It was previously scheduled to hit theaters next summer, arriving on June 30, 2017.

That would have put Uncharted up against the hugely anticipated animated sequel Despicable Me 3, which is already certified to be a blockbuster if the past two movies and the Minions spin-off are any indication. »

Sony Quietly Removes Uncharted Movie From 2017 Release Date As Joe Carnahan Teases Opening Sequence

2 September 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As the two crown jewels among Naughty Dog’s portfolio, it’s hardly surprising that both The Last of Us and Uncharted are being prepped for the live-action treatment – not only because of their cinematic tendencies, but also because of how each game/franchise has resonated with PlayStation fans.

Setting those wheels in motion hasn’t been easy, of course, with Uncharted in particular suffering from a number of creative turnovers – at one point, Mark Wahlberg, David O. Russell and Baywatch helmer Seth Gorden had been attached to the video game adaptation.

As writers and directors came and went, Sony tentatively pegged its Uncharted movie for launch on June 30, 2017, though it seems the studio has now quietly bumped the live-action rendition from that slate. Coming Soon reports that the action-adventure title no longer holds a release date to call its own, and considering that Joe Carnahan – the scribe who recently »
