27 July 2016 4:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Black Mirror” executive producers Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones rarely collaborate with other writers. But they made a couple high-profile exceptions for season three of their sci-fi anthology.

Brooker and Jones revealed Wednesday at the Television Critics Association’s press tour that Rashida Jones and Mike Schur co-wrote one episode and Dan Trachtenberg wrote another.

“It turned out they were fans of the show, and the feelings were mutual,” Brooker said of Jones, star of “Parks & Recreation” and “Angie Tribeca,” and Schur, executive producer of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “The Good Place.” Their episode stars Bryce Dallas Howard and was directed by Joe Wright. “It was a social satire about identity in the social media age. That’s about the most boring way I could describe it.”

Trachtenberg, the filmmaker behind “10 Cloverfield Lane,” wrote a video game-themed episode.

Book to film adaptations by British authors

25 July 2016 10:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now more than ever film studios are continually turning to books for inspiration. More audiences are likely to flock to cinemas to see their favourites novels hit the big screen. Over the years, book adaptations from a number of British authors have proven to be hugely successful. On the 22nd July, Roald Dahl’s Bfg will hit the big screen. Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Bridge of SpiesMark Rylance, the film is set to be a summer hit. To celebrate the release, we’re taking a look at the best British book to film adaptations.

James Bond – Ian Flemming

Flemming created the fictional character of James Bond, a British Secret Service Agent in 1953. Bond was adapted for TV, radio, comic strips, video games, and most notably film. The franchise was hugely popular and is the longest running film series to date with twenty-four films. The franchise has made a massive cultural impact. »

‘The Teacher’ Review: A Communist Satire That’s More Fun Than It Sounds

8 July 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Effectively transposing “12 Angry Men” into the most intense PTA meeting of all time, Jan Hřebejk’s “The Teacher” is a sardonic, richly seriocomic morality play that uses a delicate touch to explore why communism never seems to work out in the long run. Set in Czechoslovakia circa 1983 — when the country was just beginning to peek out from behind the Iron Curtain — and loosely inspired by true events, this crowd-pleasing standout from the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival’s competition slate leverages its hyper-specific setting to convey a universal story of fear and power. It’s a lot more fun than it sounds.

Essentially Dolores Umbridge for the muggle set, Mrs. Drazděchová (Slovak actress Zuzana Mauréry) is lonely, lustful, and low-key where her Hogwarts counterpart was the living embodiment of toffee-nosed evil. A teacher at an elementary school that looks more like a concrete concentration camp, Drazděchová starts every new year »

Who could direct the next James Bond film?

1 June 2016 6:52 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Over the last week or so, word spread throughout the industry that Sam Mendes would not be returning to the James Bond franchise for a third go around as director. I can’t say that this is in any way a surprise, considering he only came back for Spectre after Skyfall because star Daniel Craig twisted his arm, but still…we’re hitting a new era for Bond. Especially if Craig hangs up the PP7 and a new 007 is needed, someone else will be putting their stamp on the spy franchise. In that regard, I wanted to put forward a list of potential candidates to direct the next outing, regardless of who winds up starring. I’ll do a separate piece in a week or two on potential actors to take over the Bond mantle, but today is just about possible options for the director’s chair, so keep that in mind. »

Q&A: Writer/Director David Farr on Working with David Morrissey & More for The Ones Below

27 May 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

New parents get potentially deadly new neighbors in The Ones Below, the feature film directorial debut of David Farr (AMC’s The Night Manager, Hanna). With The Ones Below coming out in theaters and on VOD today, we recently caught up with Farr, who discussed working with David Morrissey (The Governor on The Walking Dead), the inspiration behind his new film, and much more.

David, thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, and congratulations on your fantastic new film, The Ones Below. How did you come up with the idea for your latest movie? Is this is a story that you’ve been thinking about for a long time?

David Farr: The film was inspired by a conversation I had in 2011 with a great friend about the anxiety of parenting. I was directing him in a Harold Pinter play at the time. We both have children. »

Ever the evangelist of practical effects over digital, director Christopher Nolan rallies a small army of troops in the latest set photos for World War II epic Dunkirk, with the pictures above showcasing thousands of extras decked out in infantry garb with massive artillery props to boot.

Shooting on location in northern France – on the very same beach where Allied forces staged the rescue mission known as Operation Dynamo, no less – it’s understood that Dunkirk will also set up shop in Holland and Los Angeles in the coming months, as Warner Bros. aligns Nolan’s feature for a primetime release in July of next year.

Featuring IMAX sequences and a star-studded ensemble, there’s already a palpable buzz surrounding the filmmaker’s latest creative venture, and it’s little wonder why. As we learned only a few days ago, Nolan has enlisted a cast that »

'Black Mirror' Locks Down '10 Cloverfield Lane' Director to Helm Episode for Netflix

29 April 2016 6:31 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Black Mirror is a British anthology series that's made quite a splash. In the vein of, say, like The Twilight Zone, each episode takes place in some odd, speculative science-fiction settings. The series only lasted on the British airwaves for two seasons, or seven episodes, but last year was picked up by Netflix for twelve more episodes.

Netflix has already locked down some great directorial talent for the series with the likes of Joe Wright (Atonement, Hanna) and Jacob Verbruggen (House Of Cards) -- not to mention the acting talents of Bryce Dallas Howard. Now Deadline is reporting that they've secured Dan Trachtenberg for an episode of the anthology.

For those who don't recognize the director by name, he's the relatively new talent who is hot off the success of 10 Cloverfield Lane, another film that was very much in the spirit of horror anthologies. In addition to that J.J. Abrams-produced film, »
