Oscar Contender and New Marvel Superhero Chadwick Boseman on His Journey to Stardom

29 October 2014 6:36 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

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 »

Paul Greengrass Directing Berlin Wall Drama ‘The Tunnels’ (Exclusive)

24 October 2014 5:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

FilmNation Entertainment has acquired film rights to Greg Mitchell’s book proposal for Berlin Wall drama “The Tunnels” and attached “Captain Phillips” director Paul Greengrass to helm.

Mark Gordon (“The Messenger,” “Saving Private Ryan”) will produce the escape drama with FilmNation, which is continuing to amplify its production and financing activity on high-profile projects.

“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.

The deal was brokered by Aaron Ryder and Alison Cohen on behalf of FilmNation, and CAA.

“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 »

James Brown Doc Director Says Singer Was Like Steve Jobs

24 October 2014 5:27 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Alex Gibney has nothing but nice things to say about the recent James Brown biopic, Get on Up.

"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.

Did You Know: The Miles Davis Film Spike Lee & Wesley Snipes Almost Made, Written by Charles Fuller

15 October 2014 3:08 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

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?

15 October 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Big and Uncle Buck to Shutter Island and Rush Hour, here are 23 films that are getting the television treatment...

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...

‘In the Heat of the Night’ TV Series Coming From ‘The Help’ Director Tate Taylor

9 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

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 Interested in In the Heat of the Night Series

8 October 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

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 »

In The Heat Of The Night Is Getting The TV Reboot Treatment

8 October 2014 3:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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 »

'In the Heat of the Night' TV Series Reboot Lands at Showtime

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.
