Keanu Reeves to Join Sci-Fi Thriller The Panopticon

20 November 2014 10:52 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

According to The Wrap, Keanu Reeves is currently in negotiations to star in a new sci-fi thriller called The Panopticon. The actor is hot off his his latest action film John Wick, which kicked all kinds of ass. I was really hoping that film would help him get even more cool movie gigs. He was recently cast in another sci-fi movie called Replicas, and now he has this new potential project, which sounds cool.

The movie will follow “a seemingly ordinary man who receives a mysterious package containing a pre-recorded message from himself, warning that the world is about to end and only he can save it. He must race against the clock to piece together the puzzle before time runs out for mankind.”

Immortals director Tarsem Singh is set to helm the film, which comes from a script written by The Quiet Ones scribe Craig Rosenberg. Reeves recently wrapped »

Keanu Reeves to Lead Tarsem Singh's Action Thriller 'The Panopticon'

19 November 2014 4:46 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

This year saw Keanu Reeves get some deserved attention for his ass-kicking role in John Wick, though the film should have gotten even more attention at the box office. The actor has a couple sci-fi projects lined up with the gestating space travel romance Passengers still kicking around, and there's also Replicas, which will reteam Reeves with John Wick producer Stephen Hamel. Now The Wrap reports Reeves is in talks to lead The Panopticon, an action thriller from director Tarsem Singh (The Fall, Mirror Mirror) and writer Craig Rosenberg (After the Sunset), and it sounds perfect for Reeves to tackle following John Wick. The story follows a salesman (Reeves) who receives a pre-recorded message from himself that tells him the world is about to end and only he can save it. It's a race against time to piece a puzzle together in order to save mankind. If the film packs »

Keanu Reeves to Lead Tarsem Singh's Sci-fi Thriller 'Panopticon'

19 November 2014 2:52 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Keanu Reeves is in talks to star in Good Universe's sci-fi thriller The Panopticon for director Tarsem Singh (Immortals), who came aboard the project last August.

He must figure out this complex puzzle to save all of humanity before it's too late.

Craig Rosenberg (The Quiet Ones) wrote the screenplay, with Andrew Lazar (Mortdecai) set to produce. Good Universe's Nathan Kahane and Joseph Drake are executive producing and handling international sales. No production schedule was given.

Keanu Reeves In Early Talks For Tarsem Singh’s The Panopticon

19 November 2014 2:29 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ambitious filmmaker Tarsem Singh has a big name on his radar for the lead in his next feature, The Panopticon, as The Wrap reports that Keanu Reeves is in the crosshairs. Set up at Good Universe, the film looks set to continue the helmer’s reputation for brain-busting sci-fi spectacles. The report offers a brief synopsis of the flick, which “follows a seemingly ordinary man who receives a mysterious package containing a pre-recorded message from himself, warning that the world is about to end and only he can save it. He must race against the clock to piece together the puzzle before time runs out for mankind.”

As it stands, the negotiations are at a “sensitive stage,” which we’ll take to mean that Reeves has yet to sign on officially. Possibly because after a post-Matrix lull, he’s in demand once more. The actor has been making a much-needed comeback of late. »

Keanu Reeves in Talks to Star in Tarsem Singh’s The Panopticon

19 November 2014 1:25 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Visually ambitious filmmaker Tarsem Singh may have found a swell lead actor for his sci-fi thriller The Panopticon.  The Wrap reports that Keanu Reeves is in talks to star in the film for Good Universe, which revolves around "a seemingly ordinary man who receives a mysterious package containing a pre-recorded message from himself, warning that the world is about to end and only he can save it.” He must work to piece together the puzzle before time runs out for mankind.  Singh broke out in a big way with his visually arresting 2000 film The Cell, which he followed up with another aesthetically grand feature called The Fall in 2006.  He made his first foray into the world of studio actioners to less-than-stellar results with 2011’s Immortals, and then helmed a take on the Snow White story with 2012’s Mirror Mirror. Hit the jump for more on Reeves and Panopticon. Per The Wrap, »

Casting: Keanu Reeves Sees Tarsem's 'The Panopitcon,' Djimon Honsou Eyed For 'King Arthur' And More

19 November 2014 12:17 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Tarsem, the visually impressive filmmaker behind "The Cell," "The Fall" and uh, "Immortals," has a new movie brewing that will make you go "whoa." Keanu Reeves will lead the director's flick "The Panopticon," which centres on "a seemingly ordinary man who receives a mysterious package containing a pre-recorded message from himself, warning that the world is about to end and only he can save it. He must race against the clock to piece together the puzzle before time runs out for mankind." How perfectly Keanu, though we'd rather see a "John Wick" sequel. Add Djimon Honsou to the rumor pile for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur flick "Knights Of The Round Table." The actor is reportedly being eyed to play "Merlin-esque figure who trains and mentors Arthur," and if it happens, he'll join the cast which includes Charlie Hunnam as Arthur and Astrid Berges-Frisbey (“I Origins”) playing »

10 indie sci-fi films to look out for in 2015

17 November 2014 6:25 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Looking for some less mainstream sci-fi films in the year ahead? Then here's our list of 10 genre movies to look out for in 2015...

If you've been keeping an eye on next year's schedules, you'll probably already know about some of the major sci-fi films due for release in 2015. Ridley Scott will leave Matt Damon stranded on the red planet in The Martian. Colin Trevorrow will unleash a new breed of dinosaurs in Jurassic World. George Miller will be bringing us his belated Mad Max sequel Fury Road, Neill Blomkamp will show off his robot sci-fi comedy Chappie, and then, of course, there's Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

But what about the smaller genre films, the ones that don't have the marketing budget of, say, Disney's Tomorrowland, or the brand recognition of Star Wars? Those are the kinds of films we're focusing on here: the lower budget, »

Toronto Spotlight: Relativity’s Tucker Tooley On Launching Faith-Based Label And Playing Niche Game

10 September 2014 8:57 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Ryan Kavanaugh and Tucker Tooley at Relativity Media have been through different manifestations through the years that involved grand enterprises like slate financing half of the movies in Hollywood at one time, and plotting an Ipo in the near future. The story of this festival has been the number of upstart companies that bought films as they re-brand themselves into indie distribution players. They include the soon-to-be-renamed Millennium buying Madame Bovary, EuropaCorp buying Big Game for its new domestic distribution pipeline Red, and Rlj/Image acquiring the Thomas McCarthy-directed Adam Sandler comedy The Cobbler.

Relativity has also been honing its own identity, and it made the first two deals of the festival, buying the completed picture The Woman in Black 2, and Kidnap, a thriller that Halle Berry will star in. Relativity chased the Chris Rock film Top Five and premiered two films here, Beyond The Lights and Hector And The Search For Happiness. »

Are Vma Winners Daniels the Franchise Film Directors of Tomorrow?

25 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Last night, amidst the butts and the Feminism and the important message from Miley Cyrus, the VMAs bestowed its latest award for Best Direction to Daniels, aka Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, for helming the Lil Jon and DJ Snake music video for “Turn Down For What.” You didn’t miss that part of the show, because this category isn’t millennial-friendly enough for the telecast (nor was the one given to Oscar-nominated art director Anastasia Masaro), but somewhere in the night there were some Moonman statues given to a duo that might just be the franchise film directors of the future. In winning the award, Kwan and Scheinert follow in the footsteps of such notable directors as David Fincher (The Social Network), Spike Jonze (Her), Adam Yauch (Awesome; I Fuckin’ Shot That!), Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo), Tarsem Singh (Mirror Mirror), Jake Scott (Welcome to the Rileys), Samuel Bayer (Nightmare on Elm Street), Steve Barron (the »

Michelle Dockery Will Be Queen Of The Earth With Elisabeth Moss

22 August 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though her supporting role as a flight attendant in the Liam Neeson actioner Non-Stop was a bit of a bust, not giving the talented actress much of an opportunity to show off her dramatic chops, Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery still feels like she’s on the cusp of a major Hollywood breakthrough. Now, the actress has joined another promising project that should help her star rise even higher – indie thriller Queen of the Earth.

Dockery stars with Top of the Lake actress Elisabeth Moss in the psychological thriller, which will be directed by Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up Philip). It centers on two women who take a trip to a remote beach house in hopes of escaping the daily grind and other pressures in their busy lives. Though they’re lifelong best friends, the pair eventually acknowledge the growing disconnect between each other, allowing their suspicions about one another to cross over into reality. »

Liam Neeson Will Run All Night In April 2015

6 August 2014 6:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When the Wachowskis’ space epic Jupiter Ascending was taken off the summer calendar and slotted for next February, we had a feeling that the shift might mess up Warner Bros.’ previously laid plans for early 2015. Now, the studio has officially announced what it’s changing – the Liam Neeson actioner Run All Night has been moved from February 6th (when Jupiter will now open) to April 17th next year.

Even if effects work hadn’t caused Warner Bros. to delay Jupiter, it was possible Run All Night still would have ended up moving forward. After all, Fox is releasing Taken 3, also with Neeson, next January.

Run All Night will mark Neeson’s third collaboration with Unknown and Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra. Brad Inglesby (Out of the Furnace) penned the script, which centers on an aging hitman (Neeson) who is forced to go up against his brutal, sadistic former employer (Ed Harris »

Noah Blu-Ray Review

29 July 2014 9:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Darren Aronofsky at the helm, Noah was always going to be a Biblically ambitious sight to behold, and a vividly strange one at that. Creative liberties are one thing, but did anyone expect the man behind Requiem For A Dream and The Fountain to adhere strictly to the Bible’s cut and dry storytelling? Aronofsky’s retelling of “Noah’s Ark” blends elements of Lord Of The Rings with God’s bleaker trials and tribulations, getting a wee bit darker than I remember Noah’s adventure, but stunning camerawork and artistic attention make use of massive color palates much like Andy Warhol might – but a Catholic school special, this is not. Either I zoned out when my Catholicism teacher detailed how gargantuan rock monsters helped Noah fight off an invading army of dissidents, or Aronofsky decided that religion needed a jolt of Hollywood magic.

Nightcrawler Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal In Sunglasses Lays On The Smooth Sleaze

23 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Dan Gilroy, brother of Tony, took over some of the writing duties on the Bourne franchise from his older sibling, who also directed the Jeremy Renner outing. Gilroy also penned Real Steel and Tarsem's The Fall. Here he makes his directorial debut with Nightcrawler, a film that foolishly escaped my gaze in yesterdays big Tiff announcement. As of this moment, the trailer certainly has my attention.  Jake Gyllenhaal, on fire after his one-two punch with Denis Villeneuve last year (Enemy, Prisoners) plays Lou Bloom, an ambitious, morally dubious crime reporter in Los Angeles who, judging from the images on display, will do anything to climb the ladder at the TV newsroom. In a brilliant pitch, the trailer is narrated as a perky job interview (to a fetching, as...

HBO's 'Westworld' pilot nabs Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood

22 July 2014 5:27 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood are saddling up for "Westworld." The Oscar-winning "Silence of the Lambs" actor has signed on to star in HBO's TV adaptation of the 1973 sci-fi film, effectively taking on his first (prospective) series regular role, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Joining him is "Charlie Countryman" star Evan Rachel Wood, who previously collaborated with the network on both "True Blood" and the 2011 miniseries "Mildred Pierce." Described as a "dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin," the J.J. Abrams-produced series was "inspired by" the original film, which centered on a futuristic theme park that gave wealthy adults the opportunity to live out their Wild West fantasies (or any fantasies, really) with the help of artificially-intelligent robots. Hopkins will star in the pilot as Dr. Robert Ford, the "brilliant, taciturn and complicated creative director, chief programmer and chairman of the board »
