12 July 2017 9:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino rides again. The singular auteur — who continues to hint at his imminent retirement, even as he stumps for the possibility of making two more feature films — is reportedly working on what will be his ninth feature, and it’s both the perfect fit for his wild-eyed sensibilities and a perhaps totally unhinged dip into one of the worst moments in American history.

As the The Hollywood Reporter reported last night, the filmmaker is apparently lining up a new film based on the Manson Family murders, one that might reteam him with is “Inglorious Basterds” star Brad Pitt and Qt newbie Jennifer Lawrence for a deep dive look inside the crime spree that rocked the country back in the summer of ’69.

Author: Scott Davis

It seems that we won’t have to wait too much longer to see the next film from Quentin Tarantino as new reports suggest his next project might not be too far away from starting up.

The Hollywood Reporter has said that Tarantino is putting the final touches on his latest script which reportedly centres around the Manson Family murders that took place in the late ’60s. Details on the film aren’t known quite yet but part of the film will focus on the murder of Sharon Tate in 1969, who was the wife of Roman Polanski.

Harvey and Bob Weinstein, who has been involved in previous films with Tarantino, are set to be involved once again and that they are looking for co-financiers and distributors for the film.

In addition, reports suggest that a few big A-listers are being eyed for roles in the film. Brad Pitt, »

Quentin Tarantino Developing Film About Manson Family Murders

11 July 2017 4:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Quentin Tarantino’s next film will explore one of the most infamous murders of all time.

Sources tell Variety that Tarantino’s upcoming movie, which the filmmaker has already written and will direct, will focus on the Manson family murders.

The tragedy occurred on Aug. 8, 1969, when cult leader Charles Manson — an unemployed convict and failed musician — ordered a group of his followers to attack the guests of a house in Los Angeles’ Benedict Canyon. The followers brutally murdered everyone at the home, including actress Sharon Tate, who was eight months pregnant at the time.

The focus of the pic is unclear at this time. It’s unknown whether the film will be a historical retelling about the events that occurred or if the crime is used as a backdrop for separate, intertwining stories.

Insiders close to the project indicate that while no one is attached or has read for a part yet, Tarantino »

Quentin Tarantino Eyeing Brad Pitt And Jennifer Lawrence For Charles Manson Movie

11 July 2017 4:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now this sounds interesting.

After working together on 2009’s Inglourious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino is looking to get back into bed with Brad Pitt for a film based on the Manson Family murders. Not only that, but Jennifer Lawrence has been approached to co-star and Harvey and Bob Weinstein are on board to produce.

Eyeing a summer 2018 shoot, it’s still early days on the project but it’s quickly coming together from what we understand, with Wme looking for financing at the moment. Tarantino is behind the script and as mentioned above, the currently untitled film will be based on the horrific event where Sharon Tate and several others were brutally murdered by Charles Manson and his followers in 1969. Two years later, the cult leader and a number of his crew were sentenced to life in prison for their crimes.

Quentin Tarantino could be working on an “Inglorious Basterds” reunion, but the director’s new film looks to hew a little closer to the truth.

Tarantino, along with long-time producers Harvey and Bob Weinstein, are reportedly putting together a new film based on the Manson Family murders. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brad Pitt, who starred in the 2009 film “Inglourious Basterds” has been approached to star, as has Jennifer Lawrence.

Wme is reportedly looking for studios to co-finance the picture, which could be ready to pitch as soon as Labor Day and shoot by summer 2018.

If the movie comes together, it would be Tarantino’s first film to be based on true events, assuming you don’t count Aldo Raine’s murderous rampage through Germany in “Inglourious Basterds.” Though no script details have been confirmed, one story is said to focus on Sharon Tate, the actress who was murdered by »

Polaroid Trailer Snaps One Killer Selfie

29 June 2017 1:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Dimension Films has released the official trailer for their upcoming horror movie Polaroid, which is set to hit theaters on August 25, 2017. It was announced at the beginning of this year that production had started for the movie in Halifax, Nova Scotia and now we have the first trailer and official release date set. Polaroid is produced by Roy Lee and Chris Bender, the team responsible for The Ring and The Grudge. Lee believes that Polaroid could be the start of a franchise. The trailer does hint at a cool horror series in the same vein as Final Destination, even giving a hint that there could be a prequel sometime in the future.

The trailer comes to us via The Weinstein Company's YouTube channel and it's a little over 2 minutes of suspense and super creepy sound design that often sounds like somebody struggling to breathe mixed in with the unmistakable sound »

Spider-Man: Homecoming - director Jon Watts interview

Rob Leane Jul 4, 2017

Jon Watts chats to us about Spider-Man: Homecoming, sequels, Vulture, Tony Stark, Venom, Stan Lee, Marc Webb and more...

Back in 2015, I spoke to Jon Watts via an international phone line. I was at home, and he was deeply entrenched in Marvel Studios, beginning work on the film we later came to know as Spider-Man: Homecoming. The main topic of discussion back then was his Kevin Bacon-featuring micro budget thriller, Cop Car.

A year and bit later, on a blisteringly hot June day, Watts and I met for real in a swanky London hotel. He was just as lovely in real life as he was on the blower, enthusiastically chatting about Homecoming, the future of Spidey at the cinema, and a number of other projects. Here’s the transcript...

[Nb: this interview took place before all the 'Venom is in the McU'/'no it isn't' hoohah.]

In the press notes, one thing jumped out at me: apparently you made stick-figure videos while Marvel »

Later tonight, 47 Meters Down swims its way into theaters everywhere, and the action-fueled horror movie has had quite a wild ride so far. It was originally set to be released on home media last summer, only to be picked up by Entertainment Studios and become destined to hit big screens everywhere this weekend.

During a recent press day, Daily Dead had the opportunity to chat with two of the co-stars in 47 Meters Down, Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket, Stranger Things) and Yani Gellman (Urban Legends: Final Cut, Stoney from Jason X), who play a boat captain and potential suitor to one of the film’s heroines, respectively. The duo discussed what intrigued them about the project, the challenges of making the film, and recalled 47 Meters Down’s unusual journey into theaters.

What was it that initially attracted you to this project? Had you seen any of Johannes [Roberts'] prior films?

Glen Mazzara and Len Wiseman Developing Sin City TV Series

31 May 2017 1:09 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We've seen Frank Miller's Sin City comic books come to life on the big screen in the 2005 and 2014 film adaptations that Miller co-directed with Robert Rodriguez, but now a TV series adaptation is in the works at The Weinstein Company (TWC) / Dimension, with two big names working on the project.

According to Deadline, Glen Mazzara is writing a TV series adaptation of the Sin City Dark Horse comics, with Len Wiseman set to direct. Stephen L’Heureux (whose producing credits include Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) is on board the series as a producer, along with Miller, Mazzara, Wiseman, Bob Weinstein, and Harvey Weinstein.

Deadline reports that although the TV series is expected to follow Miller's comics, it will also feature new characters and stories against the neo-noir backdrop of Sin City, all while being a "far departure from the films."

How Megan Ellison Turned Annapurna Into A Powerful Mini-Major — Deadline Disruptors

In only a few short years, Megan Ellison—who started up Annapurna in 2011—has taken a small, vibrant, indie production company and methodically turned it into an impressive mini-major. Those in town are comparing Annapurna to the heyday of Harvey and Bob Weinstein's Miramax, which dominated the '90s, but a more appropriate analogy might be Orion Pictures, the prestige indie outfit of the '80s. Ellison is financing, acquiring and producing high-quality fare with… »

Trump Controversies Making Waves in Cannes

20 May 2017 8:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At premieres, beach parties, wine-soaked dinners and business meetings, the topic du jour at this year’s Cannes Film Festival: Trump. Buyers and sellers, studios executives and stars confess they’re glued to their smartphones, waiting for email alerts and updates on the latest White House scandal.

“I’m obsessed with it,” said Stuart Ford, CEO of sales and production company Im Global. “The first thing I do in the morning is check the news. The last thing I do at night is check the news.”

Some of the films searching for distribution along the Croisette grapple directly or indirectly with Trump and the populism that fueled his rise. Buyers are circling “Promised Land,” a documentary by Eugene Jarecki that centers on a cross-country trip against the backdrop of the 2016 presidential election. Michael Moore also Skyped in for a talk with Harvey and Bob Weinstein on Friday to whet buyers appetites for “11/9,” an anti-Trump documentary. »
