CAA Signs ‘Fanboy’ Scribe Ernest Cline

2 April 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Ernest Cline, the scribe behind the Black List script Fanboys and author of the bestselling cult novel Ready Player One, has signed with CAA. Cline broke in with Fanboys, which reflected his own obsession with Star Wars. He became branded in geek lore by following with the futuristic Ready Player One, whose premise was reflected in the deal Facebook made buying virtual reality company Oculus for $2 billion. In the novel, most of the world escapes the real world on a daily basis by logging into the Oasis, a globally networked and fully immersive virtual utopia. Once they put on the virtual reality goggles and gloves, users lead idyllic lives. It changes society, to the point where many abandon the real world. Warner Brothers acquired the screen rights to Ready Player One, with Donald De Line and Dan Farah producing. Cline just got a seven-figure worldwide rights deal from Random House for Armada, »

Chris Boal Signs On To Script Sony’s ‘Zorro’ Reboot

6 March 2014 3:44 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Sony Pictures is crossing swords with Chris Boal, signing the playwright and scribe to reboot its Zorro franchise. The reboot has been a Sony priority for some time, and the studio has Parkes/MacDonald’s Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald producing it. They are also spearheading the studio’s reboot of Men In Black. Lauren Abrahams is overseeing it for Sony and Marc Resteghini for P/M. I’m told that the ambition of the movie is less traditional swashbuckler, and more of a Dark Knight-style unveiling of the character with a new backstory, gritty realism and emotional core. There will be swordplay, combined with the martial arts that came from Europe and created a deadly combination of action and lethal fighting systems that combined swords, daggers, grappling and bare knuckles. Boal was a competitive fencer on the national circuit before becoming a writer. He just adapted the sci-fi »

‘Last Vegas’ Director Tapped for ‘Lady in the Locker Room’

27 February 2014 11:40 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

CBS Films has attached “Last Vegas” director Jon Turteltaub to direct and produce “The Lady in the Locker Room,” based on the life of female sports journalist Susan Fornoff and her book of the same name.

Karim Zreik (“Common Law”) will also produce. CBS Films bought the pitch from Joel Silverman, who will write the screenplay.

Fornoff’s story, set during the 1980s, centers on her battle to secure equal rights for female sports journalists, insisting they deserved the same access to athletes as their male colleagues. Fornoff worked for USA Today and the Sacramento Bee, becoming one of the first women to enter the locker room.

The movie marks the second collaboration for Turteltaub and CBS Films following “Last Vegas,” which has grossed more than $130 million worldwide.

Silverman’s credits include “Full Court Miracle.” He recently set up “Garo” with Jerry Bruckheimer producing and “Undefeated” with producer Scott Stuber. »

Amanda Seyfried Set By Seth MacFarlane For ‘Ted’ Sequel

24 February 2014 11:15 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Amanda Seyfried is going to play the female lead in Ted 2, the Seth MacFarlane-directed sequel with Mark Wahlberg back as the centerpiece in the ongoing saga of a man and his foul-mouthed teddy bear. MacFarlane is still putting together the pieces for the Ted 2 sequel, but it looks like Mila Kunis will only appear in a tiny role, if at all, in the sequel. I’m told this has nothing to do with anything other than a creative decision that MacFarlane decided to take with the plotting of the sequel. He and Kunis remain close, I’m told, and she continues to provide the voice of Meg in MacFarlane’s Family Guy.MacFarlane is nearly done with post-production on his next film, A Million Ways To Die In The West, in which MacFarlane stars with Liam Neeson, Charlize Theron, Seyfried and Ted star Giovanni Ribisi. Scott Stuber produces both films. »

20 February 2014 6:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Kill the Messenger

Director: Michael Cuesta

Writer: Peter Landesman

Producers: Pamela Abdy, Naomi Despres, Jeremy Renner, Scott Stuber

Cast: Jeremy Renner, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Michael Sheen, Michael K. Williams, Robert Patrick, Ray Liotta, Barry Pepper, Andy Garcia, Paz Vega, Rosemarie DeWitt, Tim Blake Nelson, Oliver Platt, Jena Sims, Lucas Hedges, Richard Schiff, Yul Vazquez

We know him as the director behind indie nuggets such as L.I.E., hotel room splendor of 12 and Holding and more recently, Roadie, so after a mostly low-budget indie filmography Michael Cuesta cross over into bigger budget big leagues is due to a successful stint on Homeland. Kill the Messenger sounds like compelling material, and sports and impressive ensemble cast, and we’re banking that visually it’ll pay dividends with cinematographer Sean Bobbitt who is currently at the top of his game.

[Comic Execution] 2/14 – ‘The Fuse’, ‘The Mercenary Sea’, ‘City: Mind In The Machine’

14 February 2014 11:47 AM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Science fiction, man. I love it. But comic books make me want to hate it. I mean, I get that comic books aren’t really a literary medium. They can be, but they’re read mostly by people avoiding the commitment and sometimes challenge of a more rigorous, if still speculative, format, namely prose. Now I’m not going to pretend that prose Sf&F is always a step up from comics and, in fact, there’s pretty much an equal ratio of turds to gold (there’s some kind of law for this, I think). But so much more effort is put into the “science” part of science fiction in literature than it is in comics, and that seems to be an unfortunate result of the assumption (perhaps correctly) most comic book writers make that their audience isn’t interested in “harder” sci-fi or fantasy. But they try at it anyway sometimes, »

There is nothing more overpowering, reckless and all-consuming than the rush that accompanies first love…in all of its intensity and obsession, possibility and promise. It is a timeless theme in modern storytelling, dating back to Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, but one that remains urgently current because it serves as a rite of passage for everyone in every generation.

This Valentine’s Day, one young couple will fight against all odds for love.

Endless Love stars Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike) and Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers) in the story of a privileged girl and a charismatic boy whose instant desire sparks a love affair made only more reckless by parents trying to keep them apart.

Directed by Shana Feste (Country Strong), the romantic drama co-stars Robert Patrick, Bruce Greenwood, Rhys Wakefield, Dayo Okeniyi, Emma Rigby and Joely Richardson. Scott Stuber and Pamela Abdy (Identity Thief) of Bluegrass Films are joined »

A Million Ways To Die In The West Greenband Trailer Follows On Heels Of Extended Redband

3 February 2014 11:42 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Seth MacFarlane makes his way in front of the camera for his next big venture, and though the general air of offensiveness doesn’t seem quite up to the level set by Ted, this star-studded comedy still looks to be full of MacFarlane’s… charm.

A Million Ways to Die in the West has more big names than you know what to do with, which is a strong indication that there a lot of MacFarlane fans out there. Much like most of MacFarlane’s work, it looks like the film tries its hand at a wide variety of comedy stylings, some look pretty funny, some are perhaps hoping to milk more than is possible out of screwball situations.

At any rate, the film quickly followed  the release of the Redband trailer with one that is safe to show without an age-gate. The differences probably tell you a lot about the final film actually, »

First-Look Image: Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West

2 January 2014 1:52 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In the past few days, we’ve had some great first-look images, including Ben Affleck in David Fincher’s Gone Girl and Christian Bale in Ridley Scott’s Exodus, and now it’s time for our first look at Seth MacFarlane’s anticipated A Million Ways to Die in the West.

The Western-comedy marks MacFarlane’s sophomore feature, and given the ingenuity of his directorial debut, Ted, it’s understandable that the film is one we’re most looking forward to this year.

With less than half a year on the clock before it hits cinemas, Universal has released the first image from the film, and here’s to hoping that the first trailer won’t be too far behind.

A Million Ways to Die in the West follows a cowardly sheep farmer (MacFarlane) who chickens out of a gunfight and sees his girlfriend (Seyfried) leave him for another man. »

Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West Fires Off First Photo

1 January 2014 8:53 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Seth MacFarlane, the hugely successful comedian behind Family Guy and Ted, definitely has his fair share of detractors (his “We Saw Your Boobs” gag at this year’s Oscar ceremony proved a particular divisive moment for audiences), enough people enjoy his raunchy style of humor that his projects are usually pretty big news. His upcoming comedy Western, A Million Ways to Die in the West, which MacFarlane directed, wrote and stars in, is certainly no exception.

The first official image from the film hit the web today, and while it doesn’t reveal much about the film’s plot, the shot does serve to remind us that a considerable amount of big-name stars are involved in MacFarlane’s latest big-screen gamble.

The brief plot synopsis we have for A Million Ways to Die in the West provides a pretty major clue as to what’s going on the above »
