With the news that’s getting everyone all excited that Chadwick Boseman will be playing the Black Panther in Marvel film’s upcoming film version, Universal has not picked a better time to announce that their bio-pic of James Brown Get on Up will be coming out on in a blu-ray/standard DVD/Digital HD combo package on January 6th. Though people were split on the film literally everyone agreed that Boseman gave a powerhouse performance as The Godfather of Soul in the film and the DVD will contain a whole hosts of extras including a commentary by director Tate Taylor, deleted, extended and alternate scenes, full song performances and extended song performances. And if that »

I don’t think I’ve seen a better performance in 2014 than the one that Chadwick Boseman gives as the late James Brown in Tate Taylor‘s Get on Up. It is straight-up transformative stuff — Boseman sings, dances and starts to even look just like Brown, “The Godfather of Soul” who died in 2006 — and if anyone is worthy of a best actor Oscar nomination in this remarkably crowded year for the category, he is. Consequently, I was delighted to have the chance to sit down with the 37-year-old in New York earlier this month for an extensive conversation about his rise to stardom.
Boseman hasn’t been in the public eye for very long so he looks, to you and me, like an overnight sensation: he hit most people’s radar in the spring of 2013, thanks to his quiet but stirring portrayal of Jackie Robinson »

“The Tunnels” is the untold true story of a great escape before the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. The story focuses on a group of West Germans trying to get their loved ones out of East Berlin, with the unlikely help of American news networks, who funded their expedition.
“Finding an untold true story of this caliber is such a rarity,” Ryder said. “Greg’s proposal will make for a very human and cinematic experience. We have no doubt that Mark »

"It was… good," he says carefully, with a little chuckle. His diplomatic appraisal isn’t without a dash of self-preservation: Mick Jagger, a co-producer of the Tate Taylor film, also co-produced Gibney’s latest film, Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown, a documentary about the great performer’s musical and social impact that will debut Monday, October 27th on HBO.

I actually don't think I was aware of this before reading about it today. Or maybe I was, but just can't remember. And I'm assuming that some of you probably weren't aware either. So I'm just sharing as an Fyi. There's obviously nothing that can be done about it now. Or is there... I believe it's mostly known that Spike Lee and Wesley Snipes at one time (2008 or so) paired up for a James Brown movie (which never happened; Tate Taylor would eventually take over the project that Chadwick Boseman starred in); but did you know that, about 15 years before that, Lee and Snipes were to team up for a Miles Davis biopic, with Snipes of course starring, and Spike directing?

You can blame the huge success of Fargo for this. Hollywood, even before that, had been moving more and more to exploiting movie properties on the small screen. But since Fargo married up critical acclaim to a good audience? All bets are off.
Here are 23 - count 'em! - currently in differing stages of production...
The film: Earning Tom Hanks his first Oscar nomination, the beloved 1988 comedy drama Big saw him as Josh Baskin who, courtesy of a Zoltar machine, turns into an adult. Romance, work, and playing on a big piano follow.
Warren Littlefield has planted his flag at Legendary Television and Digital Media, cutting a first-look deal to develop projects for various platforms.
Littlefield is riding high on the success of FX’s “Fargo,” which bagged the Emmy for best miniseries and is returning for a second season next year. He also just inked a development deal with Showtime for a new TV rendition of “In the Heat of the Night” with filmmaker Tate Taylor.
“Warren is one of the few former broadcast network presidents who has successfully made the transition from executive to producer.” said Bruce Rosenblum, prexy of Legendary TV and Digital. “We are thrilled to be in business with him and proud to have his award-winning talents to help us create content that will resonate with audiences no matter what the platform.”
Littlefield launched his Littlefield Co. shingle shortly after leaving NBC in 1998 after a 15-year run. He »

At some point, it’s probably going to become easier to name the classic movies that haven’t been turned into TV shows than the ones that have. The latest big-screen property to transition to the small-screen is In the Heat of the Night, the 1967 drama starring Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger. Well… at least it’s […]

Showtime is taking their time in digging up new ideas of TV series, especially controversial ones. Thus the network agreed with Tate Taylor (from The Help fame) to look into a TV series reboot of In The Heat of the Night. Fitting to the latest rounds of racial waves, the plot follows the life of an African-American police officer who is now in the middle of a crime investigation. It is expected to be darker with Tate working with Warren Littlefield on it. As for it actually being filmed, it appears to be in the very early stages of being planned.
Showtime is certainly working hard this fall to line up some interesting shows. I am not sure how they will pull this one off without too many issues. The concept will be a great source of chatter and perhaps issues due to the nature of the story. I think »

MGM Television’s rebooted version of movie classic, In The Heat Of The Night, has found a home at Showtime, as the network will work with the studio to develop the TV series with The Help’s Tate Taylor at the helm.
The original 1967 movie arrived on the big screen during the height of the Civil Rights Movement. Based on the 1965 novel, it starred Sidney Poitier, Warren Oates and Rod Steiger, and snagged five Academy Awards for its depiction of a divided Southern town. Poitier led the pic as a police detective sent to the fictional Mississippi town of Sparta to investigate a murder. He meets great hostility from the local sheriff, played by Steiger.
It’s a phenomenal film that sparked two sequels, but doesn’t exactly lend itself to the TV format. However, this approach has been tried before. In the late 80s NBC broadcasted a small screen »

Showtime is looking to add a little heat to its nighttime lineup. The premium network and MGM Television have begun developing a new TV project based on the 1967 film In the Heat of the Night, EW has confirmed. Written and directed by The Help's Tate Taylor, the series will be "an exploration of character and race set in modern-day Mississippi." Taylor, a Mississippi native, will also executive produce alongside Warren Littlefield (Fargo) and John Norris (Get on Up). The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news. The movie starred Rod Steiger and Sidney Poitier as two men working together against »

An update on the August announcement that MGM was developing a TV series based on its 1967 classic drama "In the Hear of the Night," with none-other-than Tate Taylor (director of "The Help" and "Get on Up") directing... Announced today, the series has found a home on the Showtime network, which we can assume, means, it'll something more adult and R-rated, than if it were picked up by a broadcast network like NBC or CBS. The news comes after Showtime announced, earlier this week, that the network will be rebooting the cult classic "Twin Peaks" from David Lynch, for a 9-episode limited series in 2016. Showtime is also developing a TV series based »

We learned back in August that a new take on "In the Heat of the Night" (originally a novel by John Ball and previously adapted for both the big screen and small screens) was eyeing a return for television. Now it appears that Showtime picked up the new series with The Help and Get on Up helmer Tate Taylor set to executive produce alongside Warren Littlefield and John Norris, both of whom recently served as executive producers on FX's "Fargo." »
The pay cabler has commissioned multiple scripts with an eye toward a straight-to-series order if the scripts are well-received. The project based on the 1967 Sidney Poitier-Rod Steiger pic is described as an exploration of character and race set in modern-day Mississippi. Taylor is a native son of the Magnolia state, and he’s known for his touch with material set in the South as the filmmaker behind “The Help” and this year’s James Brown biopic “Get On Up.”
Taylor is writing at least two scripts for Showtime and will direct should the project go before the cameras. Taylor and Littlefield are exec producing with John Norris. Littlefield Co.’s Ann Johnson is on board as a producer.

Warren Littlefield (Fargo) and John Norris will also serve as executive producers, with The Littlefield Company's Ann Johnson.
