Italy’s TV Producers Turn to Crime Series for Global Sales

8 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Boosted by the international sales success of mob series “Gomorrah,” Italy’s expanding TV production community, led by Sky Italia and shingle Cattleya, is hoping to spark a trend among buyers, much as Denmark’s “The Killing” prompted the Nordic Noir phenom. Call this one, perhaps, Italian Immorality.

The rise of high-quality TV dramas is not new. For the past decade, U.S. skeins energized global sales for Hollywood product, and pushed the international creative community to raise its game. According to the MPAA, U.S. global film and TV exports stand at $14.3 billion. Now an invigorated

Italian TV biz wants in on an international business that is surging in Europe, where 42% of viewers list drama series as their favorite type of programming, according to a recent Eurodata TV report.

Anthony Bourdain Breaks Down Cinema History for ‘Parts’

5 August 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s been well over a decade since Anthony Bourdain, former executive chef of Manhattan’s Les Halles and author of bestselling memoir “Kitchen Confidential,” became a TV star. With his Travel Channel series “No Reservations” and “The Layover,” Food Network’s “A Cook’s Tour” and stints on “The Taste” — for which he’s Emmy-nominated for his hosting duties for a second year in a row — and “Top Chef,” Bourdain is an old pro at this point. But when Bourdain and his longtime crew moved over to CNN to kick off the multiple-Emmy nominee “Parts Unknown,” they faced one big problem: How do you make something new while working in a genre — nonfiction television — that relies on repeating the same general formula every week?

“It’s a limited story that we’re telling, ultimately,” Bourdain says. “On every episode, I go someplace, I eat a bunch of stuff, and I come back. »

Italy’s Wildside Recruits Hot Scribes To Pen International TV Projects

4 August 2014 4:55 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rome – Expanding Italian production company Wildside is looking to grow its presence in the international TV arena with several new projects, including high-concept skeins being penned by two of the country’s best-selling authors, Niccolò Ammaniti and Paolo Giordano.

Giordano, whose novel “The Solitude of Prime Numbers” won Italy’s top literary nod, the Premio Strega, is at work on a scripted series working-titled “Lo Sciamano” (The Shaman) about a man who emanates what are believed to be magic powers in a European city outside Italy. “Numbers” was adapted into a Wildside-produced film helmed by Saverio Costanzo. It went to Venice in 2010.

Ammaniti is instead at work on “The Miracle,” a mystery/thriller/drama which turns on a magical event that impacts the lives of characters across borders, including in an anglo-saxon country. A top Italian director will helm the skein, now in advanced scripting stages. Ammaniti’s books have been made into six movies, »

From 'Traitor' to Screen Legend: Fonda Still Busy on the Big Screen

Jane Fonda: From ‘Vietnam Traitor’ to AFI Award and Screen Legend status (photo: Jason Bateman and Jane Fonda in ‘This Is Where I Leave You’) (See previous post: “Jane Fonda Movies: Anti-Establishment Heroine.”) Turner Classic Movies will also be showing the 2014 AFI Life Achievement Award ceremony honoring Jane Fonda, the former “Vietnam Traitor” and Barbarella-style sex kitten who has become a living American screen legend (and healthy-living guru). Believe it or not, Fonda, who still looks disarmingly great, will be turning 77 years old next December 21; she’s actually older than her father Henry Fonda was while playing Katharine Hepburn’s ailing husband in Mark Rydell’s On Golden Pond. (Henry Fonda died at age 77 in August 1982.) Jane Fonda movies in 2014 and 2015 Following a 15-year absence (mostly during the time she was married to media mogul Ted Turner), Jane Fonda resumed her film acting career in 2005, playing Jennifer Lopez »

Your Weekend Plans Should Include Seeing Colin Farrell in a Speedo

18 July 2014 7:32 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Colin Farrell put his impressive physique on display in a black Speedo while relaxing in Stromboli, Italy, on Friday. The actor lounged by the pool after shooting a new Dolce & Gabbana campaign with Oscar-winning director Paolo Sorrentino. Colin was surrounded by a bevy of beautiful ladies on a yacht earlier in the day, so this is likely a nice working trip for him. Before heading overseas, Colin made headlines when it was revealed that he is being considered as one of four leads for the second season of HBO's True Detective. Along with Colin, it was reported that Taylor Kitsch is also in talks to star in the show. It could be a while before we find out if Colin will be suiting up and solving crimes, so in the meantime, just enjoy him stripping down and showing off his body. »

15 July 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Anthology films have been a mainstay in cinema for a number of years, as numerous filmmakers take the opportunity to create short films around a specific subject, or rooted in a specific genre. One of the more well-received of these anthologies was 2007′s Paris, Je T’aime, which led to a New York, I Love You. Film fans were thus intrigued to learn that a third one was underway, this time focused on the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro. Titled Rio, Eu Te Amo, or Rio, I Love You, the anthology features works from directors such as Fernando Meirelles, Paolo Sorrentino, José Padilha, and John Turturro, with performances from Emily Mortimer, Vincent Cassel, Jason Isaacs, and Harvey Keitel.

Michael Caine, Jane Fonda And Harvey Keitel Star In ‘Youth In Venice’

3 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

A truly diverse cast has been assembled by director Paolo Sorrentino for Youth In Venice, the follow up to his critically-lauded Italian odyssey The Great Beauty. Boasting two of the world’s best jobbing actors, Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel, the story concerns a pensionable film director and composer who go on a break to the mountains, where presumably some stunning scenery will fuse with meditations on life and art. The subject matter may have less discerning cinemagoers rolling their eyes, but the pairing of these performers from very different backgrounds should generate enough electricity to power the French Riviera come festival season.

Sorrentino hasn’t skimped on the rest of the cast either, with Jane Fonda making one of her sporadic returns to the big screen. Rachel Weisz, last seen romancing the elderly with Bill Nighy in Page Eight, and Paul Dano (Prisoners) round off the talent-heavy roster. Shooting »

Even Making a Cup of Tea is Erotic: Bernardo Bertolucci on Me and You

2 July 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Bernardo Bertolucci was barely out of his teens when the first feature film he directed, La Commare Secca, based on a story by Pier Paolo Pasolini, premiered in 1962. In today’s poetry-averse art house environment, his influence surfaces only sporadically — perhaps most clearly in the impulsive, unabashed aesthetics of Paolo Sorrentino — but his filmography remains strong and singular. Nothing feels quite like a Bertolucci film, with its peculiar, poetic fusion of the sensual, the political, and the spiritual. Bertolucci is 73 now, and, because of a series of botched back surgeries, confined to a wheelchair. His newest film, […] »

For film fans, a quality feature can come out at any time, from any one, and discovering an enjoyable and well-crafted feature is truly a pleasure. As we reach the halfway point of the year, many excellent films have already made their way to theatres, films that are well worth a watch. Below, you shall find the list of the top 30 films of 2014 to date, a list that ranges from science fiction thrillers to period dramas.

A few notes to keep in mind when reading our entry: Certain films from our 2013 list make a second appearance on this list. This is because the movies, while technically released this year, were seen by a select few in time for last year’s list, due to the benefit of film festivals and press screenings. The list itself is in no particular order, »
