21 June 2016 9:39 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cablevision Systems Corp. is no more. European telecom conglom Altice said Tuesday it has completed its $17.7 billion acquisition of one of the industry’s pioneering cable companies, a deal that makes the newly minted Altice USA the fourth-largest operator in the country.

The new company combines Cablevision and Suddenlink, which Altice acquired last year, for a base of 4.6 million subscribers for broadband and video services. Altice USA has operations in 20 states, including Cablevision’s stronghold on the lucrative Long Island market, putting it behind Comcast, Charter Communications (which just acquired Time Warner Cable) and Atlanta-based Cox Communications.

“Altice USA is a key pillar of our business and a powerful and dynamic growth platform,” said Patrick Drahi, Altice founder and controlling shareholder. “We are very excited about our U.S. business and the opportunities we see in this market. We will accelerate network investments and bring innovative products and services to U.S »

‘Amy’ Helmer Asif Kapadia and Andrew Niccol Plan New Films

28 January 2016 10:58 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Going where many a documentarian have gone before, and often to poor results, Asif Kapadia (Amy, Senna) has been tapped for the fiction feature Silver Ghost. It’s perhaps fitting that this also concerns the world of automobiles, albeit in a more relaxed area than Formula 1 racing, being the story of “the creation of the [Rolls-Royce], the odd-couple relationship between Charles Stewart Rolls and Henry Royce, the early days of the aviation industry and a passionate romance.” [Screen Daily]

It’s a passion project-of-sorts for producer Martin Scorsese, who’s been involved since the late Richard Attenborough was developing it. There’s no further word at this moment, but with the director’s Sikelia Productions at the helm (Zuma Productions and Anthony Haas are also involved on that front), one expects it’ll move along quickly.

Meanwhile, THR inform us Andrew Niccol has secured another high-concept sci-fi project, no doubt with the help of Clive Owen. »

Kapadia, whose credits include BAFTA best documentary winner Senna, said: “What struck me when I read Silver Ghost was how this true story weaves together the lives of five remarkable people that changed the destiny of the Western world and I am delighted to be working together with the legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese and Anthony Haas to bring it to the screen.”

Scorsese said: “I’ve been captivated by the story of [link »

28 January 2016 6:56 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Documentary filmmaker Asif Kapadia ("Senna," "Amy") is set to direct the fact-based narrative drama feature "Silver Ghost" for Sikelia Productions and Zuma Productions.

Martin Scorsese, who has been involved with the project for years after the late Richard Attenborough brougth it to his attention, will produce with Anthony Haas.

The story deals with the iconic car, born out of an extraordinary odd-couple relationship between the maverick genius of Charles Stewart Rolls and Sir Frederick Henry Royce. Their teaming also marked the genesis of aviation and the western world was never the same.

The film will also include a love story that runs parallel to the invention tale. The film joins two other auto manufacturer films in the works - one a biopic about Lamborghini, the other being Michael Mann's Enzo Ferrari film.
