Film Review: ‘Radiator’

21 November 2014 5:36 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The personal experience of looking after one’s aging parents rings achingly true in “Radiator,” the directorial debut of Tom Browne, co-writer of 2001’s “The Nine Lives of Tomas Katz.” Depicting an adult son trying to support his long-suffering mother as she deals with her unraveling yet domineering husband, this family drama echoes Michael Haneke’s “Amour” in its subject matter, although the grotty setting couldn’t be further from that film’s chic Paris apartment. Flashes of dark humor and deeply resonant performances by the two senior actors (Richard Johnson, Gemma Jones) should help sell this specialty item to select audiences following a well-received London Film Festival bow.

In choosing to set his film at the real Cumbria stone cottage of his deceased parents, Browne takes advantage of a striking Lake District location and a chaotically jumbled interior, which no set decorator could ever hope to match. It’s »

Oliver Stone’s Edward Snowden Film Acquired by Open Road

6 November 2014 1:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After a heated bidding war that had most of the majors vying for it over the weekend, Open Road has won the U.S. rights to the untitled spec revolving around the Edward Snowden story that has Oliver Stone directing and Joseph Gordon-Levitt starring.

As Deadline Hollywood reported earlier in the week, studio execs first received the script Friday afternoon with the first offers coming in sometime that evening. Wild Bunch has nabbed the international rights.

Stone is writing and directing and will produce with Eric Kopeloff and Moritz Borman.

Snowden’s story is now familiar to most: the former U.S. intelligence analyst released more classified documents than anyone since Daniel Ellsberg’s leaking of the Pentagon Papers during the Vietnam War. He has been on the run ever since.

Stone acquired the rights to the book “Time of the Octopus” by Snowden’s lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, which is »

'Bond 24' to Begin Production December 2014

14 September 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in June, we reported that production on the highly-anticipated Bond 24 has been pushed to December 2014, with Skyfall co-writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade returning to work on the original script by John Logan.

Rumor: Sam Mendes Wants Léa Seydoux for Bond 24

8 August 2014 11:22 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The folks behind Bond 24 had a tough time with that script.  Even though Neal Purvis and Robert Wade opted out of the 24th installment after working on The World Is Not EnoughDie Another DayCasino RoyaleQuantum of Solace, and Skyfall, back in June, news broke that the duo would actually return to do some work on John Logan’s Bond 24 script, specifically stepping to give it some “punch.”  However, it turns out, giving it a little punch might have been a bit of an understatement. Even though it’s being reported that Logan’s script was in really bad shape, apparently they’ve fixed it up enough now to move forward with casting because there’s a rumor out there that Sam Mendes has his eye on Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Color) to star opposite Daniel Craig in the film.  Hit the jump for »

James Bond 24 Script Getting Completely Rewritten at Last Minute

1 August 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For awhile now we've known that Skyfall director Sam Mendes was getting back behind the camera for James Bond 24, the next installment of the spy franchise starring Daniel Craig as 007. The script was again coming from John Logan, writer of Skyfall, but now a report from The Daily Mail's reliable Baz Bamigboye says frequent Bond franchise writers Neil Purvis and Robert Wade were brought in for a last minute rewrite. In fact, the source calls it a "rescue" of the original screenplay that has been completely overhauled, with a previous report from the same source saying Logan's script was "politely moved aside." Maybe they're just using the same basic story now as the new script from Purvis and Wade has been said to add more thrills. The new effort has reportedly already been given the greenlight and Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are ready to march »

"Bond 24" Script Scoring A Massive Overhaul?

1 August 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A little while back came word that regular Bond series scribes Neil Purvis and Robert Wade were brought onboard the upcoming twenty-fourth James Bond film to polish John Logan's script.

At the time it seemed they were just coming back to add some humor. Now though, a report in The Daily Mail indicates their revisions were potentially far more extensive than that.

Sources say writers Neil Purvis and Robert Wade answered a fire-alarm call from actor Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes to 'rescue' the screenplay and add some 'thrills'. They then delivered a "substantially different" work to producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson - and the green light has been given for filming to start in late November/early December. 

The paper's source says: "Everyone's excited, and all systems are pumping away at full speed. There was an awful lot of work to do. It was a big job. »
