Spring Review [Fantastic Fest 2014]

25 September 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since festival audiences have already exhausted the “Spring is like…” comments over every form of social media (Spring is like Before Sunrise meets H.P. Lovecraft, for example), I’ll just plainly say that Spring is romantically horrific bliss, achieving perfection through tragedy and soul. Is there a subgenre of horror equatable to the “Mumblecore” scene yet? If not, filmmakers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead have pioneered it, throwing together a loving tale that’s aided by a creature-feature subplot akin to a Troma production on super-steroids.

There’s something so primal and affectionate about Spring. It strikes an honesty that’s notably reminiscent to Richard Linklater’s or Joe Swanberg’s crowning work. It’s the most regal of Shakespearean epics meets the most sinister Joe Dante feverdream, striking a wealth of emotional riches while also utilizing beastly effects reminiscent of Landis’ An American Werewolf In London and many other skin-tearing affairs. »

Why Lady Antebellum Penned the Song for the Nicholas Sparks Movie The Best of Me

21 September 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Lady Antebellum's leading lady Hillary Scott has long been a fan of romance author Nicholas Sparks, especially the film made from his tearjerker novel, The Notebook. So when filmmakers asked for the band to write a song for a new film based on the Sparks novel The Best of Me, it was a no brainer. "To be able to write for one specific thing and to put ourselves into the story, because we really try to write from our own personal experience, was really cool," Scott says. "It's a really special, sweet story." The film follows the storyline of high school sweethearts, »

Huston to Follow Heston as Ben-Hur Casting Announced

17 September 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Jack Huston cast in 'Ben-Hur' remake? 'Boardwalk Empire' actor to follow in the footsteps of Ramon Novarro and Charlton Heston Jack Huston, best known for playing World War I veteran-turned-bootlegger-cum-assassin Richard Harrow in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, may star in the latest Ben-Hur "remake," to be jointly produced by Paramount and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. I have "remake" between quotes because officially this fourth big-screen version of the semi-biblical epic (more on that below) isn't an actual remake of either the multiple Oscar-winning 1959 Ben-Hur or its 1925 predecessor, but a direct adaptation of former Civil War general Lew Wallace's 1880 bestselling novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, which happens to be conveniently in the public domain. Timur Bekmambetov, whose credits include the Angelina Jolie-James McAvoy thriller Wanted and the supernatural cult classic Night Watch, has been attached as director of what is in fact A Tale »

A movie star in the making: 'Boardwalk Empire's' Jack Huston is your new 'Ben-Hur'

16 September 2014 7:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jack Huston is your new "Ben-Hur." The "Boardwalk Empire" star has been set to play the title role in MGM and Paramount's upcoming remake, according to Deadline. Timur Bekmambetov ("Wanted") is set to direct the epic film, in which Morgan Freeman was previously cast as Ildarin, the man who trains Ben-Hur to become a champion chariot racer. As we reported last month, Tom Hiddleston had previously been eyed for the lead role. Best known for his role as masked hitman Richard Harrow on the HBO crime drama, Huston has also appeared in a number of recent films including "American Hustle," "Kill Your Darlings" and David Chase's "Not Fade Away." Upcoming big-screen credits for the actor include "Posthumous" opposite Brit Marling, Nicholas Sparks adaptation "The Longest Ride" and "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," an adaptation of the bestselling mashup novel by Seth Grahame-Smith. Based on the hugely popular 1880 novel by Lew Wallace, »

‘Ben-Hur’ Remake: ‘Boardwalk Empire’s Jack Huston Lands Title Role

16 September 2014 5:59 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: MGM and Paramount have found Ben-Hur. The studios are setting Jack Huston, and you just knew he was going to get a big, star-making film role after his portrayal of the masked, war-scarred assassin Richard Harrow on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. It would be hard to imagine a bigger-scale picture than Ben-Hur, with Timur Bekmambetov directing the epic remake in Europe next year. Huston joins Morgan Freeman, whom Deadline broke will play the role of Ildarin, the man who teaches the slave Ben-Hur to become a champion-caliber chariot racer.

MGM and Paramount still have to find their Messala, Ben-Hur’s former close friend-turned-bitter rival. Actors have been circling both parts, and it looked for a while there like Huston might have played the latter. He read for that role, but Bekmambetov decided instead he had the sympathetic manner and grit to play the title role, the one that brought »

Will James Marsden finally get the girl in a Nicholas Sparks movie?

16 September 2014 1:32 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

If there’s no official rule against James Marsden landing the girl in his movies, it sometimes seems like there is a conspiracy against him. The Notebook. Enchanted. Superman Returns. He’s always getting left standing, as the odd man out. He even got squeezed out of the X-Men films, and one of the rare occurrences where he actually ended up with the girl was 30 Rock, where he ended up with a Lemon. Clearly, he’s just not good-looking enough.

Well, it seems like he’s finally going to catch a break—in a Nicholas Sparks film, no less!

13 September 2014 3:39 PM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »
