India’s Vidhu Vinod Chopra Works off his Anger at Film Bazaar Master Class

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Goa, India — Vidhu Vinod Chopra, writer and producer of global hit “3 Idiots,” and arguably India’s most successful film maker, remains something of an angry young man.

“One of the reasons I became successful, was because I struggled so much with ‘Khamosh’,” he said, describing his 1985 film which has since become a classic, but which he had to self-release after being rejected by distributors.

Chopra was speaking Sunday during the Film Bazaar in Goa in a master class where he was interviewed by fellow film maker Sudhir Mishra.

Despite having promised not to, Chopra peppered his discourse with choice swearwords in English and Hindi, as he took sideswipes at film festivals (“I’m not a festivals kind of man”), digital cinema (“a little bit of laziness has crept in”) and a string of named and unnamed distributors and producers.

Despite also calling himself “not a likeable person,” and saying that »

First Look: Patrick Stewart Plays a Neo-Nazi in ‘Green Room’

19 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Patrick Stewart has turned to the dark side.

Stewart offered his Twitter followers a first look at his new white supremacist character in “Green Room” — a far cry from his iconic characters of Captain Jean Luc Picard from “Star Trek” and Professor Charles Xavier from the “X-Men” franchise.

The photo shows the actor surrounded by other (more menacing-looking) Neo-Nazi skinheads, who he oversees as the leader of a fiefdom based in the Pacific Northwest.

Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat and Joe Cole also star in the film written and directed by Jeremy Saulnier.

The thriller centers around a punk rock band that ends up trapped in a secluded venue after witnessing a horrific act of violence. The band members eventually face off against Stewart and his gang of white power skinheads.

Bgp is producing and financing the film, which is set for release in 2015.

Paul Schrader Talks "Bad People" Behind 'Dying Of The Light,' Says Push For 35Mm Projection Is "Claptrap"

21 November 2014 2:34 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We don't know the ins and outs of his contract with the producers, but it seems that Paul Schrader is skirting the line of not disparaging "Dying Of The Light." As you might recall, the director contends that the film was taken away from him and re-edited, leading to Schrader, producer Nicolas Winding Refn, and stars Nicolas Cage and Anton Yelchin to boycoot the film. But the terms of their contract state they can't bad mouth the movie, so they've found a way around it with some clever t-shirts. But speaking with Slate, the filmmaker didn't talk about the movie exactly, so much as the folks behind it, and his words are fairly candid.  "I fell in with some bad people. It happens. Because film directors are such personalities, you think, 'Put me in the cage with the lions. I know how to treat the lions. I’ll have them all sitting on their stools. »

First Photo of Patrick Stewart as Skinhead Leader in Green Room

20 November 2014 11:58 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It's really hard for me to imagine the lovable Patrick Stewart as a cold-hearted scumbag skinhead leader, but here he is, and he looks mean as hell. 

Stewart's character is named Darcy Banker, and he's described as "the unflinching and industrial leader of a ferocious white supremacist fiefdom based in the Pacific Northwest." The story follows "a young punk rock band who find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence and fighting for their lives against a gang of white power skinheads intent on eliminating all witnesses."

Stewart is joined by Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, and Alia Shawkat in the feature, which is being directed by Jeremy Saulnier. Saulnier is a talented up-and-coming director who made the insanely intense movie Blue Ruin, which you have to see if you haven't already.

The movie will be released sometime in 2015, and I'll be looking forward to it. »

First Look: Patrick Stewart as a White Supremacist in 'Green Room'

20 November 2014 11:10 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Just a few weeks ago we learned that Patrick Stewart would play a white supremacist in Green Room, the next film from Jeremy Saulnier, the indie director behind the fantastic thriller Blue Ruin (now available on Netflix Instant). Production is already underway on the film, and thankfully, Stewart was given the honor of debuting a first look at his character in the film, complete with his Neo Nazi gang. Honestly, he looks a little Heisenberg-esque with that sweater, beard and glasses, and that's pretty cool. No shots of Anton Yelchin and Imogen Poots yet, but surely we'll see them sometime down the road. Look below! Here's the first look at Jeremy Saulnier's Green Room from Patrick Stewart on Twitter: First look at me as a very bad guy in Jeremy Saulnier's @greenroomfilm to be released by @BroadGreen next year. pic.twitter.com/10TNjUmmNW— Patrick Stewart (@SirPatStew) November 20, 2014 Green Room »

Patrick Stewart Leads Skinheads in Jeremy Saulnier's Green Room [Image]

20 November 2014 11:04 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Patrick Stewart is an unlikely social media superstar but while some folks are happy to fan over the actor's latest tweets, Stewart has been keeping busy in everything from theatre to TV and from the looks of it, movies too and his latest role is unlike anything he's played before.

Stewart is starring in Jeremy Saulnier's sophomore feature Green Room. The follow-up to the fantastically successful Blue Ruin, Saulnier's latest sees Stewart as Darcy Banker, the leader of a white supremacist group base in the Pacific Northwest. The story follows a punk band that ends up stranded at a venue being hunted down by Banker's gang who are looking to eliminate all witnesses to a crime.

Does Not Go Quietly: Schrader’s Latest Tampered Product

Veteran film director and screenwriter Paul Schrader just can’t seem to catch a break. Much like the fate of his 2003 Exorcist prequel, his latest directorial effort, Dying of the Light has also been reedited, scored and mixed without his approval, which led to a quiet movement of protest via social media where Schrader asked audiences to avoid this studio product, which also included the support of stars Nicolas Cage and Anton Yelchin. However, it’s just the kind of publicity that would perhaps enliven interest for a film that would otherwise have flown under the radar (and one thinks Cage should have asked audiences the same request of this year’s earlier release of Left Behind, instead). Rife with a series of awkward developments and bizarrely presented characters that are grimly determined to maintain an aura of stilted seriousness that »

First Look at Patrick Stewart in Green Room, the New Film from Blue Ruin Director Jeremy Saulnier

20 November 2014 9:02 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Jeremy Saulnier's Blue Ruin is one of the best films of 2014 you probably haven't seen (but if you have Netflix Instant, you can watch it now!).  It's a unique spin on the revenge genre, and once you see it, you'll likely be amped to see Saulnier's next film, the upcoming thriller Green Room.  The story revolves around a young punk rock band that find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence, fighting for their lives against a gang of white power skinheads intent on eliminating all witnesses.  Patrick Stewart stars as Darcy Banker, an unflinching and industrial leader of a ferocious white supremacist fiefdom based in the Pacific Northwest. You can check out the image after the jump, and be sure that we're definitely going to be keeping this film on our radar, not only because of Saulnier and Stewart, but also »

20 November 2014 8:31 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Cinematographer turned feature filmmaker Jeremy Saulnier turned everyone’s head earlier this year with the release of the unnerving revenge thriller “Blue Ruin.” That gave him enough juice to set up his next project rather quickly, which is already shooting. Titled “The Green Room,” the movie follows a punk rock band who find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon an act of violence, fighting for their lives against a gang of white power skinheads. The movie stars Patrick Stewart, Imogen Poots, Anton Yelchin, Mark Webber, Alia Shawkat "Blue Ruin" star Macon Blair, Joe Cole and more. Stewart stars as the Neo-Nazi leader and he’s tweeted out a first look. Put this one high up on your 2015 most anticipated list and hope it’s ready by Cannes or the next fall film festival season. Here’s a few more recent first looks from films we’re anticipating too. »

19 November 2014 9:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Despite the lottery-esque sounding odds, the U.S Dramatic Competition section which produces the finest American indie specimens such as Frozen RiverWinter’s Bone, Blue ValentineMartha Marcy May MarleneBeasts of the Southern WildFruitvale Station and Whiplash is fairly consistent in terms of quality. Last year’s crop of sixteen have almost all had their theatrical releases with Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter being the last one out of the gates (pegged with an early 2015 release). Last week we individually looked at our top 80 Sundance Film Fest Predictions (you’ll find 30 other titles worth considering in our intro) and below, we’ve split the list into narrative and non-fiction film items and have both identified and color-coded our picks in an AtoZ cheat sheet.

2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions List: An Introduction

17 November 2014 11:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Whether you are a filmmaker, or one of the Sundance programmers whose task it is to identify the films that make up a line-up, it is indeed the most wonderful, panic-filled and nerve racking time of the year. The 31st edition of the Sundance Film Festival kicks off on January 22nd with Park City and Salt Lake City playing host to some of the more innovative, thought-provoking narrative and non-fiction films of 2015. Last year, a Jenga tall order of 4,057 features and 8,161 shorts were submitted. Now let’s think about those numbers for a second.

Twenty years ago, Terry Zwigoff’s Crumb claimed the Grand Jury Prize Documentary award, Living in Oblivion‘s Tom Dicillo was honored with the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, and Edward Burns’ micro-budgeted The Brothers McMullen (there is a read-worthy, lively, eleventh hour account on how it was submitted to the fest in Ted Hope’s “Hope »

2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Zachary Sluser’s The Driftless Area

12 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With a trio of short films under his belt, Zachary Sluser hit indie film pay dirt with a measuring cup full of Sundance vets for his directorial debut. Starring Anton Yelchin, Zooey Deschanel, John Hawkes and supporting perfs from Alia Shawkat, Aubrey Plaza, Frank Langella and Ciaran Hinds, The Driftless Area wouldn’t be out of place at the fest as it is being tipped as a neo-noir dark romantic dramedy. Production began this past May in Vancouver, Canada with cinematographer Fjord Daniel Voldheim (Ragnarok) collaborating with a score supplied by Saunder Jurriaans & Daniel Bensi (Enemy).

Gist: Based on the novel of the same title by Tom Drury who co-wrote the screenplay with Sluser, this tells the story of a young man by the name of Pierre Hunter (Yelchin) who falls in love with a mysterious woman named Stella (Deschanel) and finds himself in a game out of cat and »

Nicolas Cage Gets Snippy In Dying Of The Light Clip

11 November 2014 3:11 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s the film that the director, stars, and executive producer do not want you to see, but that’s not going to stop the studio marketing machine from showing us clips, posters, and trailers for Paul Schrader’s CIA thriller Dying of the Light.

Protests from the director and stars Nicolas Cage and Anton Yelchin are due to the producers taking over the film after Schrader offered a less than stellar cut – and although they are required by their contracts to not disparage the film, they have nonetheless made their objections very known. Though what the public sees will unlikely be Schrader’s cut, we are still going to see something – and the first clip gives us a bit of a taste.

Nicolas Cage is Lake, a veteran CIA operative who has been forced to retire, an event we catch our first glimpse of in this clip. When his »
