Battlestar Galactica Has Happened Before, Will Happen Again With 'Westworld' Writer

10 June 2016 10:51 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Remember a few years ago when Universal was working on a Battlestar Galactica feature film? Turns out it's still happening and it has some exciting new names attached. We first have to go all the way back to 2009 when work on this film project first started. The 2003/4 Syfy reboot of the 70s series was just wrapping up and Universal got together with Glen A. Larson to start work in a big-screen version. The project was meant to be a reimagining of the story which did not continue with the continuity of the original television series or the reboot but would include the characters we know like Adama, Starbuck, and Baltar. Bryan Singer was attached to direct at one point and in 2011 John Orloff was close to writing, telling Deadline “I have wanted to write this movie since I was 12 years old, and built a Galactica model from scratch out of balsa wood, cardboard, old model parts and LEDs. I love BSG, and I would pass on the job rather than frak it up.” Things were quiet for a bit and then in 2014 Universal hired Transcendence writer Jack Paglen (who's also worked on Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant) for screenwriting duties. Earlier this year they picked up Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark of Bluegrass Films to produce but now we get to the really exciting news. Deadline reports on a new writer and a possible new director: The long-awaited big-screen transfer of the Glen Larson 1978 TV series is moving forward at Universal. Lisa Joy, who scripted and is exec producer on HBO’s series Westworld, is writing the script. Francis Lawrence is circling the movie to direct...Numerous directors have taken cracks at the feature film version over the years. It gives Universal a strong chance to create another tentpole franchise. This is excellent news from where I'm standing. Joy's credits also include Pushing Daisies and Burn Notice. She was also writing a film for Sony Pictures in 2014 which would have focused on female characters from Spider-Man lore, though there hasn't been any updates on that for a while.  Lawrence of course ushered the last three installments of The Hunger Games franchise to screen and I'd be interested to see what his BSG would look like. Here's a tip for you though - keep Katee Sackhoff as Starbuck. »

Battlestar Galactica Movie Targets Hunger Games Director

9 June 2016 6:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After languishing in development since 2009, Universal Pictures' Battlestar Galactica movie is finally moving forward in the right direction. We reported last month that the studio has brought on Michael De Luca, Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark to produce this sci-fi reboot, but now even more progress is being made. Today we have word that HBO's Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy has signed on to write the screenplay, with Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) circling the project as a director.

This new report from Deadline doesn't reveal if Francis Lawrence is in negotiations, or if he's just interested in taking on this coveted directorial gig. Much like the original 1978 TV series, and the critically-acclaimed 2003 TV reboot, this project will follow the longstanding battle between humans and the Cylons, although no specific plot details were given. We reported back in 2014 that this project will be a full reboot that is more »

We have a new frontrunner for Captain Marvel, and we think you’ll like her

1 June 2016 5:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A new development in the speculation of who will star in the first McU led solo by a female superhero: Brie Larson is reportedly the frontrunner to play Captain Marvel. Variety posted today that she is in early talks for the role and is the studio’s first choice, though Marvel isn’t commenting on this yet. Larson has become quite the “It Girl” lately, winning the Best Actress Oscar this year for Room and set to share the screen with Tom Hiddleston in new King Kong movie Kong: Skull Island. Yup, this would mean two The Spectacular Now actors have gone on to play superheroes, though we hope things turn out much better for Larson than they did for Miles Teller. The Captain Marvel standalone film is set for a Marvel 2019 release, but the Russo brothers let slip that we will also see her in one of the (formerly »

Cannes Lunchtime: Content’s Jamie Carmichael

11 May 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jamie Carmichael is a seasoned Cannes visitor — “it will be my 25th year in a row,” he notes — and a veteran of the global film market. The Los Angeles-based exec will be on the Croisette with a lot of projects including action-thriller “The Worker,” produced by Jeremy Renner’s shingle The Combine, starring Michael Peña and directed by Dan Bradley, and the Manolo Blahnik documentary “Manolo.” “And we’ve got a very scary, supernatural horror movie, ‘Don’t Knock Twice,’ from ‘The Machine’ team starring Katee Sackhoff, Lucy Boynton and Nick Moran,” he adds.

Favorite restaurants

I love Le Caveau 30 and I always order the same meal. They have the best starter, the langoustine salad, and I make everyone have it, even if they don’t want it. Then it’s the steak au poivre and a half-glass of a good rosè. I’ve been going there for 25 years now and it’s always fantastic. »

6 May 2016 12:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that Captain America: Civil War has hit theaters, directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo will start prepping their massive two-part adventure Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Avengers: Infinity War - Part II. We have previously reported that production is scheduled to begin at the end of this year, with both movies being shot back-to-back over a massive nine-month stretch. The filmmakers have previously teased that there will be upwards of 67 characters featured in this superhero epic, which will bring Marvel Phase 3 to a close. And it seems the filmmakers have confirmed at least one of these characters, Captain Marvel.

Cannes: Content Media to sell 'Pistorius'

5 May 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Content Media heads to the Croisette with international rights to a documentary about the complicated life of the world-famous athlete.

Vaughan Sivell is shooting the film about the South African, who became the first double-leg amputee to compete at the Olympic Games in 2012.

However, Pistorius fell from grace a year later following the death of his fiancée Reeva Steenkamp that eventually led to his murder conviction.

Pistorius sets out to investigate the truth behind its central character as well as the reputation of South Africa itself as a place of violent crime and corruption.

Sivell also produces the film, styled as Making A Murderer-meets-Senna, alongside Western Edge Pictures colleague Sean Richard and the Gennaker Group.

'Captain Marvel' Cast and Director Will Be Announced This Summer

11 April 2016 4:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Captain Marvel is perhaps not the most anticipated Marvel movie coming in the next 5 years, the casting announcement for who will bring Carol Danvers to life on the big screen certainly is. And there have been a great number of actresses vying for the role over the past couple of years. Who will play Captain Marvel? We won't know until August. But we should get a confirmation on the movie's director in the next month or two.

Captain Marvel is the first solo adventure for a Marvel Studios female superhero. And she promises to be a badass addition to the Disney roster. Though, it isn't known where she will show up first, or if she'll make her debut in her own movie. The superhero was supposed to first debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron last summer. But those plans were scrapped, and they would have greatly altered what plays »

'Battlestar Galactica' Movie Is Back on Track with New Producers

10 February 2016 3:58 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in 2009, Universal Pictures announced plans to bring Battlestar Galactica back to the big screen, following the success of Ronald D. Moore's hit Syfy series which ended its run that year. Over the years, Bryan Singer was attached to direct at one point, although be parted ways with the project in 2014. Today we have word from The Hollywood Reporter that the studio is taking another crack at the big-screen project, with producers Michael De Luca, Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark boarding the project.

We last reported on the Battlestar Galactica movie back in 2014, when Transcendence writer Jack Paglen was brought on to work on the script. Back in 2011, John Orloff (Anonymous) signed on to write the script, which was said, at the time, to be based on the original 1978 Battlestar Galactica TV series, and not the 2003 Battlestar Galactica remake series. The project doesn't currently have any writers attached, »
