London — Liberty Global, John Malone’s international cable business, has signed an original-content pact with British production group All3Media, which Liberty Global owns jointly with Discovery Communications, and has renewed a channel-distribution deal with Discovery.

World War II Drama ‘Castaway’s War’ in the Works as Movie

1 August 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gold Circle has preemptively acquired movie rights to Stephen Harding’s “The Castaway’s War: One Man’s Battle Against Imperial Japan.”

Described as “‘Lone Survivor’ meets ‘Hell in the Pacific,’” the book tells the true story of U.S. Naval Lieutenant Hugh Barr Miller, a prewar football star at the University of Alabama, who went into the water as his destroyer the USS Strong was torpedoed in the Solomon Islands in 1943 and washed up desperately injured on a small Japanese-occupied island. Against all odds, Miller survived his injuries and spent a month fighting a one-man guerrilla war against the enemy outpost, the outcome of which proved pivotal in the Allied war effort.

Miller was ultimately rescued and subsequently decorated by Eleanor Roosevelt. A movie project about Miller went into development with John Wayne set to play Miller at the height of his fame.

Paul Brooks will produce “The Castaway’s War” for Gold Circle. »

10 films to beat the 2016 blockbuster fatigue

28 July 2016 12:08 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Aug 1, 2016

Fed up of big blockbusters right now? Here are some smaller movie treats to be found in August in UK cinemas...

Around this time of the year, we like to shine a spotlight on the slightly smaller films coming out after most of the box office juggernauts have been and gone. But with each annual feature, we've noticed that the year is filling up with blockbusters more and more. The year's first comic book movie was February's Deadpool, a surprise box office smash and Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice got 2016's blockbuster season started much earlier than usual.

We're late enough in this elongated season that August will find the blockbuster schedule repeating itself - Ben Affleck's Batman will be back on screen for a cameo in DC Movies' Suicide Squad, Disney follows The Jungle Book with a live-action remake of Pete's Dragon, and Ricky Gervais »

‘Ghostbusters’ May Have a Scary-Good Weekend at the Box Office

12 July 2016 5:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony’s all-female “Ghostbusters” will attempt to scare off the haters at the U.S. box office but faces a formidable foe for the no. 1 spot– the second session of “The Secret Life of Pets,” which will probably take in around $55 million.

That should be enough for “Pets” to top the opening of the much-debated “Ghostbusters,” modestly pegged by the studio to finish in the $38 million to $40 million range at 3,950 locations on Friday. But box office trackers believe the action-comedy reboot will take in more like $45 million to $50 million.

Ghostbusters” is coming into the market following a rocky reception earlier in the year from fans of the 1984 original with griping emerging about women — Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones —  filling the roles originated by Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson.

The studio opted to delay press screenings of the movie, directed by Paul Feig, »

26 May 2016 4:03 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Deals with Im Global, Sf Studios and Radiant Films.

Swiss distributor Ascot Elite has closed deals on a hat-trick of anticipated titles fresh from the Cannes Marche including sports biopic Borg Vs McEnroe, Elizabeth Banks-starrer Rita Hayworth With A Hand Grenade and André Øvredal’s fantasy thriller Mortal.

Ascot Elite has acquired all rights for German-speaking Europe (Germany, Switzerland and Austria) to the newly announced Borg Vs McEnroe.

The film, to be directed by Janus Metz, starring Shia Labeouf as John McEnroe, Sverrir Gudnason as Bjorn Borg and Stellan Skarsgard as Borg’s coach.

The film, which is sold by Sf Studios, centres on the rivalry between the two tennis stars, who met in 14 matches between 1978 and 1981, each winning seven apiece. But it is the 1980 Wimbledon final that became the stuff of legend, and is considered to be one of the greatest tennis matches of all time.

Isabella Rossellini Hosts Sky Arts Hub’s Biggest Project: ‘Master of Photography’

1 April 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sky is known for taking “The X Factor” to the next level in Italy. Now in a bold experiment, it’s launching the first European talent-competition show dedicated to photography, with Isabella Rossellini as host. “Master of Photography,” which will see Rossellini return to work in television after decades, marks the most ambitious production spawned by the Milan-based Sky Arts Hub since it launched a year ago to conceive and commission content available to Sky’s 21 million subscribers across Europe.

“The challenge,” Rossellini says, “is to try and show how a visual artist, in this case a photographer, expresses his art.”

She notes that it’s harder than with singers and dancers. During her career, the actress and model has worked with star photographers such as Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, Helmut Newton and Robert Mapplethorpe.

Based on an original format that was adapted from the success of previous photography-themed shows on Sky Arte in Italy, »

'Flaked': How Will Arnett Reinvented Himself

11 March 2016 9:06 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Will Arnett has a not-altogether-outlandish theory: play a TV character long enough and audiences will find it increasingly difficult to separate you from that fictional construct. "People have this preconceived notion of me," contends the actor, best known as Gob Bluth, the egotistical, moronic magician on Arrested Development. "I'm Gob to them: this thoughtless sociopath who lives this bizarre, ego-driven life. That would be insanity. As I get older, I'm sort of fascinated with the idea of somebody who could construct an entire persona for themselves — one that was really, »

Watch: New U.S. Trailer For Euro Heist Series 'The Last Panthers' Starring Samantha Morton, John Hurt, And Tahar Rahim

4 March 2016 11:15 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, this is exciting. “The Last Panthers,” a six-part series courtesy of “Skins” writer Jack Thorne, has already built up a fanbase in Europe and the U.K. (The Guardian called it “visually arresting” and also “bold, smart and seductive”), and this crackerjack crime serial is finally coming to American shores. Looking very much like a stylish, violent riff on our beloved cops-and-robbers sagas — think Michael Mann’s “Heat,” or even John Hillcoat’s recent “Triple 9” — “The Last Panthers” appears promising indeed, and a new trailer has arrived just in time for the show’s stateside release.

Berlin: Netflix Disrupts Euro Drama Status Quo

15 February 2016 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As Netflix continues to expand its European footprint local players are forming alliances with the streaming giant famous for high-profile scripted shows like “House of Cards” and “Orange Is the New Black.”

The U.K., Sweden, the Netherlands, France and Germany are driving growth in Europe, but with an estimated 5 million U.K. subscribers, Netflix is almost as big in Blighty as it is in the other four countries combined. There it has around 5.4 million subscribers, according to Digital TV Research.

In the U.K. Netflix dwarfs Svod rivals, Sky Go, Amazon and NowTV (owned by Sky), which respectively have 2.9 million, 2 million and 1.3 million subscribers.

Do producers and broadcasters regard Netflix as friend or foe, a rival for eyeballs or a potential partner that can help stretch budgets?

Undoubtedly Netflix’s emergence as a key player, particularly in drama, has galvanized the European market. For producers, the impact of the big Svod companies is massive. »

Netflix does not include much Arabic content, but topper Ted Sarandos, speaking via Skype at the Dubai fest, vowed that’s destined to change as subscribers grow.

Meanwhile, a pioneering platform called MoviePigs, dedicated to distributing a wide range of indie Arab cinema in North America and Europe, is set to launch this year. The innovative aspect of Movie Pigs, which was founded by Egyptian entrepreneur Perihan Abou-Zeid and backed by U.S. tech investor Dave McClure, is that it’s a two-sided platform that also enables »
