Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' Coming Fall 2015, 'Dragon 3' Bumped to 2017

3 September 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I know, a story about a new Quentin Tarantino movie and the third film in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise doesn't exactly feel right, but both have to do with their respective film's release dates so I think it works. First off, The Weinstein Co. has issued a press release Tarantino's The Hateful Eight will begin shooting in January for a Fall 2015 release and along with that news the release announced it will receive the widest 70mm release in over 20 years". It will be curious to see if those roadshow plans also remain. The ensemble Western centers on bounty hunters returning human plunder to a town called Red Rock in exchange for hefty rewards when they run into a Southerner on the road. The three of them, along with their driver arrive at a haberdashery to take shelter from an oncoming blizzard. The proprietors are nowhere to be found, »

‘Westworld’ has the potential to be TV’s next great event

31 August 2014 1:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A year ago this week it was announced that Jonathan Nolan will act as showrunner and writer alongside Lisa Joy on a new HBO series based on Michael Crichton’s book and cult classic film Westworld. Busiest man in the world J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot cohorts Bryan Burk and Jerry Weintraub will also produce the new series. Variety reported that the HBO rendition of Westworld is described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.”

Something must have happened to Crichton at a theme park in his youth because Westworld is his first of two theme park disaster stories, the second being Jurassic Park. Westworld is the story of a Disney World-like park with multiple themed sections inhabited by lifelike androids that allow guests to act out their wildest fantasies. Of course there is a malfunction and the robots go rogue. »

29 August 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In a matter of weeks, HBO's TV series reinvention of Michael Crichton's classic 1970s film "Westworld" has become one of the hottest small screen projects in development.

The sheer amount of talent attached to the Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy-scripted project is astonishing - Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Evan Rachel Wood, Miranda Otto, and Rodrigo Santoro and more have all signed onboard.

So what is it about this story of adult amusement park populated by lifelike robots that's not just drawing them in but getting them to sign multiyear deals? The Live Feed may have found one answer.

According to their sources, the androids in the film can be killed off and return with completely different personas. As a result, actors are allowed to play many characters in the same season.

HBO programming president Michael Lombardo says: "This is built as a series and, »

29 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the Sept. 12 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. HBO's Westworld is building an A-list ensemble cast — despite the fact that most of the actors will play robots.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter these androids — played by castmembers including James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood and Thandie Newton — can be

The highs and lows of Frank Miller: The most divisive man in comics

24 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Whatever your feelings about Frank Miller are, his influence over comics cannot be denied. Only Alan Moore's work in the '80s can be compared in terms of the effect it would have on superheroes - in comics, films and the public eye - over the intervening decades.

With the release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For - his second collaboration with Robert Rodriguez adapting his noir comic of the same name - Miller is back in the public eye, talking about his love of Superman and Batman and generally upsetting everyone.

To mark the occasion, we look back at the highs and lows of Frank Miller's career.

The Highs

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

If there is one character with which Miller is best identified, it has to be Batman. 1986's The Dark Knight Returns - which he wrote and drew - is frequently cited »

Jennifer Lawrence rumoured for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight

22 August 2014 3:43 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jennifer Lawrence is rumoured to be in talks for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight.

She is believed to be in line for the role of Daisy Domergue in the western, according to Collider.

The film centres around eight outlaws who take shelter in a remote saloon during a blizzard.

Domergue is the only female member of the group.

Filming would have to fit around Lawrence's commitments to David O Russell's Joy and X-Men: Apocalypse.

Evan Rachel Wood, Geena Davis and Hilary Swank have also been named in connection to Tarantino's latest movie.

Lawrence will next be seen in The Hunger Games: Mockingbird - Part One and Serena.

Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins, Samuel L Jackson, Michael Madsen and Kurt Russell are also expected to star in The Hateful Eight. »

Jennifer Lawrence Wanted For Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

21 August 2014 4:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Quentin Tarantino is moving full steam ahead with his upcoming Western, The Hateful Eight. While we’ve heard that the director will be using the same cast that he used for the live read (Bruce Dern, Kurt RussellMichael Madsen, Walton Goggin, Samuel L. Jackson, etc.), that is unconfirmed and for now, just a rumor. He very well could go with a whole new group of actors, or at least a few fresh faces, and if this latest report is to be believed, that might be exactly what he’s doing.

Collider is telling us that Jennifer Lawrence is wanted for a major female role in the film. Of course, this hasn’t been confirmed, and apparently the actress’ camp has shot it down already, but it’s still worth discussing. After all, just because a publicist denies a rumor doesn’t mean that it’s not true.

Jennifer Lawrence and Others Rumored for Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight'

21 August 2014 4:16 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

While a largely text-based trailer for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight will premiere in front of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For this weekend, the movie has not yet gone begun filming and the trailer doesn't even list any confirmed cast members. To this point it seems Kurt Russell is the only one that's said he's in the film, but even that has yet to be made official. Now, however, things are starting to heat up as new rumors suggest Jennifer Lawrence, Evan Rachel Wood, Geena Davis and Hilary Swank may all be under consideration for a role. Note, however, these are just rumors and could simply be wishlists and/or publicists trying to get their client's names in the mix. For example, Jeff Sneider from quoted Lawrence's reps in a The Wrap tweet saying, "Despite internet rumors, her reps have confirmed she's not doing this project. »
