The MGM Lion Is Ready To Roar Once Again!

22 December 2010 5:02 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Legendary studio MGM has announced it’s emergence from bankruptcy. Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum of Spyglass Entertainment will act as the new co-chairmen and CEOs of the company and they will have a cheque of $500 million in new investment to fund on tv and film projects.

Good news all round as they can throw some of that money onto The Hobbit pile to make sure there are no last minute hiccups in New Zealend and they should have change left to finish up work on two further promising films gathering dust on the shelf, Cabin in the Woods and Red Dawn.

And of course money to finance a new James Bond film!

Written by Joss Whedon and directed by ex Lost/Cloverfield writer Drew Goddard, Cabin in the Woods is described as a twist on the cliched wilderness horror setup and stars Chris Hemsworth, Richard Jenkins and Amy Acker. »

MGM Exits Bankruptcy Protection With $500 Million To Spend

22 December 2010 3:30 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

MGM has completed their restructuring, exited bankruptcy protection and has some cash in their coffers to hit the ground running. Does this mean there should be no financial trouble for The Hobbit: Part 1 and The Hobbit: Part 2? Does this mean that the shelved, Dan Bradley directed reboot of Red Dawn with Chris Hemsworth, or Joss Whedon‘s Cabin in the Woods, directed by Drew Goddard that are already complete, will finally make it to theaters? Will they finally get underway on Bond 23, or the long-awaited RoboCop reboot?

Only time will tell if those projects see your local cineplex but, it would’ve been a sad day to see the iconic MGM collapse entirely. Hopefully the new powers-that-be can keep it afloat and return the legendary studio to its former glory.

Check out the press release below for all the details.

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. announced that the company’s restructuring has become effective, »

19 December 2010 2:05 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Beaver

Opens: March 23rd 2011

Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: Jodie Foster

Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.

Analysis: This time last year, excitement was quietly brewing for "The Beaver". Gibson's drunken tirade a few years before hand wasn't forgotten, but enough time had passed that this looked to be the year of a potential comeback for the actor.

The thriller remake "Edge of Darkness" and this were his first on screen roles in ten years, 'Beaver' is also his "Maverick" co-star Foster's return to the director's chair fifteen years after her last feature. The script topped the 2008 Black List and scored rave reviews for its blend of sophisticated humor and sad pathos, »

Alex Proyas Getting Amp’ed for Summit

1 December 2010 10:42 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Whenever Alex Proyas attaches himself to a movie, I’m instantly intrigued. When that movie turns out to be a sci-fi actioner with a groovy premise, I go from intrigued to fanboy giddy. Granted, Proyas’ “I, Robot” could have been better, but I’m still holding out hope that one day, given the right material, he can once again reclaim the glory of “The Crow” and “Dark City”. Let’s all hope, shall we? Word has Proyas producing and directing a movie adaptation of “Amp”, an upcoming novel by Daniel H. Wilson, who is currently a hot commodity coming off Steven Spielberg boarding a movie version of another one of his upcoming novels, “Robopocalypse”, which as we speak is being drafted into a script by Drew Goddard (“Cloverfield”). The plan is for Spielberg to direct “Robopocalypse”, about a robot uprising, sometime in 2012 for a 2013 release date. “Amp”, meanwhile, is also set in a near-future, »

Summit 'Amps' Book Deal For Alex Proyas

1 December 2010 5:42 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: With Alex Proyas poised to produce and potentially direct, Summit Entertainment has just closed a deal for screen rights to Amp, a near-future science fiction thriller novel by Daniel H. Wilson. The novel is set in a world where the technology designed to make the disabled whole, turns them into supermen. Deal was low six against seven figures. It’s the second major happening for Wilson this fall, after Steven Spielberg committed to direct his novel Robopocalypse, about an apocalyptic robot uprising, for DreamWorks. Spielberg will start shooting the Drew Goddard-scripted film in January, 2012 and Disney's Touchstone will distribute in 2013. Wilson’s book has been at the center of an auction that has played out over the past several weeks. I’m told that aside from Summit, Working Title and Paramount also chased a novel that has a mix of scifi action and political allegory reminiscent of District 9. »

Steven Spielberg To Bring On The Robopocalypse

25 October 2010 10:00 AM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Although Daniel H. Wilson‘s novel, Robopocalypse is now complete, it won’t be published until June 2011 but that hasn’t stopped screenwriter Drew Goddard from finishing a screenplay for a big-screen adaptation while the novel was still being completed.

While there were rumors floating early in the year that Steven Spielberg may direct the adaptation, those were dashed when he chose to direct War Horse instead. Now, Deadline reports that Spielberg has in-fact committed to direct the big-screen adaptation of Wilson’s Robopocalypse, about the human race’s attempt to survive an apocalyptic robot uprising.

Spielberg will begin principal photography in January 2012, and the film is set to be released by Disney’s Touchstone Pictures in 2013. »

Spielberg Officially Set For "Robopocalypse"

23 October 2010 3:47 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

DreamWorks has issued a press release confirming that Steven Spielberg is set to direct the sci-fi/action feature "Robopocalypse" as his next project.

The helmer, who is currently shooting the Wwi-set "Warhorse", will start filming "Robopocalypse" in January 2012 for a likely Summer 2013 release.

Based on Daniel H. Wilson's unpublished manuscript, the cautionary tale explores the fate of the human race after a robot uprising. Wilson, who has a Ph.D. in robotics, has grounded his tale in a heavy degree of authenticity derived from real robot technology.

"Cloverfield" screenwriter Drew Goddard penned the most recent draft of the script. Dreamworks picked up the rights late last year and Spielberg was linked to the project a month ago. »

Remember the Steven Spielberg who brought us Jaws? The same one who brought us Duel and Poltergeist? That's the filmmaker we love.

Nowadays his movies, while good, almost always have a completely unnecessary dollop of cheese added to their endings. Hopefully for his next film for DreamWorks, Robopocalypse, he'll get back to business. We can only hope right?

According to Variety the super director/producer has officially committed to DreamWorks that he'll bring the epic Robopocalypse to theaters in 2013. A January 2011 start date is scheduled. Robopocalypse, based on the novel of the same name by Daniel H. Wilson, explores the fate of the human race following a robot uprising. Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) has penned the adaptation.

Look for more on this one soon, and please, Steven, no more cheese with our steak dinners!

Steven Spielberg to Direct ‘Robopocalypse’ Next

22 October 2010 2:41 PM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

As an update to our previous story, Deadline is reporting that, as rumored, Steven Spielberg has chosen the adaptation of Robopocalypse as the next film he will direct. Production will begin in January of 2012, with Disney’s Touchstone releasing the film in 2013. The screenplay for the film – which itself is based on an upcoming novel by Daniel H. Wilson --  is being written by Drew Goddard (Cloverfield), and the story is said to follow the human race after a robot uprising. Sounds a lot like the Terminator films (or, to be more specific, Terminator Salvation), though with the Cloverfield dude writing it, one imagines it might hit a little closer to home and take a more realistic, relatable approach. Plus, with Spielberg involved, expect solid...

Confirmed: Steven Spielberg Will Direct Robopocalypse

22 October 2010 2:35 PM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

It's been a couple of years now since Steven Spielberg directed Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and now that the memory had faded a bit, I think we're all getting eager to see him back behind the camera again. Right now it's looking like next December will see the release of not one but two new Spielberg films: The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn and War Horse. While neither film really seems to be generating a ton of excitement across the blogosphere right now, the good news is, he's just lined up a new sci-fi action pic that is likely to get geeks pretty amped up. According to Deadline New York [1], he has officially signed on to direct Robopocalypse. As previously announced, the movie is based on a forthcoming book by Daniel H. Wilson about a robot uprising against the human race. Wilson has a Ph. »
