Samuel Jackson Starring in Sci-Fi Saga ‘Inversion’ with Travis Fimmel (Exclusive)

3 November 2016 7:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Samuel L. Jackson is in final negotiations to star in Facing East’s $130 million science-fiction movie “Inversion,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Inversion,” directed by Peter Segal, is set to begin principal photography on Feb. 27 at Babelsberg studios in Berlin, and will continue in Shanghai and Chicago.

The talks with Jackson were disclosed Wednesday at the American Film Market, where Foresight Unlimited is handling international markets.

Jackson will portray a senior Homeland Security investigator. Chinese actress Liu Yifei (“Once Upon a Time,” The Forbidden Kingdom”) has also joined the cast.

Travis Fimmel (“Warcraft”) has been attached since May to portray a street-wise American con man who teams with a young Chinese physicist (Liu) as they race against the clock to save the earth from a terrifying loss of gravity. Jackson’s character, believing the two are the cause of the inversions of gravity,  chases them across two continents trying to stop further destruction. »

The Best Directors of the Year! See Complete DGA Awards Nominees!

12 January 2016 9:25 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The Directors Guild of America has announced the nominees for the 68th annual DGA Awards! Missing were Todd Haynes ("Carol") and Steven Spielberg for "Bridge of Spies." But I'm very happy that George Miller for "Mad Max: Fury Road" got in. While we're in the subject of sequel, apparently, the DGA felt that J.J. Abrams is not worthy...yet...for a nod!

But this year's awards offer a bunch of newbies like Tom McCarthy ("Spotlight"), Adam McKay ("The Big Short"), and Miller. Meanwhile, Ridley Scott has been nominated three times before but never won for "Thelma and Louise" in 1991, "Gladiator" in 2000, and "Black Hawk Down" in 2001. Let's see if "The Martian" will do the trick and get Ridley his DGA! By the way, he hasn't won an Oscar either and he was nominated for those movies too!

Winners will be announced on Feb. 6th. Here's your complete list of nominees »

DGA nominees announced

12 January 2016 12:49 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Finally, I get a precursor right. After what has seemed like an impossible to predict awards season, I actually went five for five with my Directors Guild of America (or DGA) nominees, which were announced earlier today. The nominees were, of course, Alejandro G. Iñárritu for The Revenant, Tom McCarthy for Spotlight, Adam McKay for The Big Short, George Miller for Mad Max: Fury Road, and Ridley Scott for The Martian. They very well could be your Oscar five on Thursday morning when the Academy Awards are handed out (stay tuned for my final predictions tomorrow), though they’re hardly all locked in, that’s for sure. Undeniably however, the five nominated gentlemen certainly seem to be in a good spot right now. The nominated quintet of Iñárritu for The Revenant, McCarthy for Spotlight, McKay for The Big Short, Miller for Mad Max: Fury Road, and Scott for The Martian »

Here Are the 2015 DGA Awards Film Nominees

12 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Fresh off its impressive haul at the Golden Globes the weekend, "The Revenant" is poised to nab yet another statuette with a nomination for a Directors Guild of America Award.

The DGA announced its annual slate of honorees for outstanding directorial achievement on Tuesday, and "Revenant" director Alejandro G. Inarritu was among the five nominees. Inarritu also won the DGA award last year, for 2014's "Birdman," and with the new momentum from "The Revenant"'s Globes wins, the director looks like an early favorite to repeat.

The rest of the nominees were rounded out by Tom McCarthy ("Spotlight"), Adam McKay ("The Big Short"), George Miller ("Mad Max: Fury Road"), and Ridley Scott ("The Martian"). In addition to those names, the DGA also included a new category this year, honoring directors who helmed their first feature films in 2015.
