Paramount Buys George Clooney-Directed Comedy ‘Suburbicon’

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

Paramount Pictures has acquired U.S. distribution to George Clooney’s black comedy “Suburbicon,” starring Matt Damon, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin and Julianne Moore.

The film is expected to begin shooting this October in Los Angeles.

The announcement was made Saturday at the Berlin film Festival. The project came together on Feb. 1 when Teddy Schwartzman of Black Bear Pictures announced he would finance.

Joel and Ethan Coen have written the script for “Suburbicon,” which is currently in pre-production. Joel Silver will produce under his Silver Pictures banner alongside Clooney and Grant Heslov under their Smokehouse Pictures label, and Teddy Schwarzman for Black Bear Pictures. Clooney will direct.

The movie will be set in the quiet family town of “Suburbicon,” where the best and worst of humanity is hilariously reflected through the deeds of seemingly ordinary people. When a home invasion turns deadly, a picture-perfect family turns to blackmail, revenge and betrayal. »

9 February 2016 2:13 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Representing eight of the 10 films nominated for Original and Adapted Screenplay at this year's Oscars, there's a very good chance that at least one of the nine screenwriters on the Santa Barbara International Film Festival's "It Starts with the Script" panel will be on stage at the Dolby Theatre later this month.  This is always my favorite panel of the year, where we get to hear from the year’s most lauded and gifted screenwriters. This year's was the biggest group ever: Writer-directors Pete Docter ("Inside Out") and Charlie Kaufman ("Anomalisa") are both nominated for Best Animated Feature. Novelist-turned-screenwriter Alex Garland ("28 Days Later," "Sunshine") made his directing debut on sci-fi breakout "Ex Machina," starring Domhnall GleesonAlicia Vikander and Oscar Isaac.

Rumour: Ewan McGregor in talks to play Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode VIII

9 February 2016 12:52 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If there has been one name that has bounded around rumour mills for roles in the new Disney Star Wars Universe, it’s Ewan McGregor.

It was first rumoured that the man who took over from Alec Guinness to play Obi-Wan Kenobi in George Lucas’ prequel trilogy was going to feature in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (which turned out to be sort-of true but not as was originally reported) and then it was thought he was going to get his own trilogy of movies, possibly for Netflix.

Well, his name is back in the mix for Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Kristian Harloff of Schmoes Know and Collider tweeted, “Grain of salt: hearing that Ewan Mcgregor in talks to play Obi Force ghost in Episode 8.”

Latest Batch Of X-Men: Apocalypse Images Send The Four Horsemen To War

8 February 2016 9:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Magneto, Storm, Psylocke, and Angel tear earth asunder in the latest batch of images for X-Men: Apocalypse, which are essentially screengrabs lifted from the thunderous Super Bowl trailer that surfaced late last night.

Recruited by Oscar Isaac’s titular villain, the Four Horsemen become imbued with a special brand of power at the beginning of Bryan Singer’s biblical threequel, and that only spells all manner of trouble for Professor X (James McAvoy) and his class of mutants.

More News From The Web

As the very first mutant in existence, Apocalypse’s powers know no bounds, though it is his loyal soldiers that take center stage in today’s screenshots. Headlining the quartet is Michael Fassbender as the conflicted Magneto, flanked by Alexandra Shipp’s Storm, Olivia Munn’s Psylocke, and Ben Hardy’s Angel.
