In The Hateful Eight, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape.

On Christmas Day, director Quentin Tarantino will roll out his eighth feature film, The Hateful Eight, in a limited "roadshow" presentation in 70mm. Fans will have two weeks to see this revenge Western in 70mm, before it debuts nationwide with digital projection on January 8. Fandango has released a seven-minute featurette that explains the importance of this 70mm presentation, and offers some history on the roadshow format, which hasn't been used for years.
One advantage of seeing the 70 mm roadshow is fans will get a longer cut of the movie than they'd see in the nationwide release. Quentin Tarantino revealed last month that the 70mm version will include six minutes of extra footage, a trademark of classic roadshow presentations such as Gone With the Wind, Ben-Hur and many more. We also hear from Samuel L. Jackson, who explains that the 70mm presentation gives viewers an image that is twice as large as a traditional movie. »

Back in September, Sony Pictures set up an Untitled Evel Knievel Biopic with Channing Tatum attached to star and Darren Aronofsky eyed to direct. The project fell apart after Darren Aronofsky backed away to direct an untitled indie movie which has Jennifer Lawrence attached to star. Today, Deadline reports that Paramount is moving forward with an adaptation of Sheldon Saltman's book Evel Knievel on Tour, with William Monahan (The Departed) signing on to write the adapted screenplay. The studio hopes to reunite the screenwriter with director Martin Scorsese, but nothing is set in stone at this point.
The 1977 book Evel Knievel on Tour will be used as a resource for this biopic, but it isn't known exactly how faithful this adaptation will be. The book covers Evel Knievel's infamous 1974 attempt to jump the Snake River Canyon in a steam-powered rocket known as the Skycycle X-2, which failed. Author Sheldon »
Evel Knievel seems to be fascinating Hollywood again. The headline grabbing stuntman was the subject of the recent documentary "Being Evel," Sony has their own brewing movie with Channing Tatum attached, and now Paramount want to get on the motorcycle and jump some school buses with their own biopic, hoping to grab the most legendary director around to take it on. Deadline reports that the studio has tapped "The Departed" scribe William Monahan to pen an adaptation of Sheldon Saltman's notorious "Evel Knievel On Tour." The book, which presented a not so family-friendly portrait of Knievel, so infuriated the stuntman that he attacked the author with a baseball bat, breaking his arm. And even more, it details Knievel's failed Snake River Canyon jump. So, with Monahan on board, and Terrence Winter ("Boardwalk Empire," "The Wolf Of Wall Street") slated to produce, Paramount wants to grab Scorsese to complete the trifecta, »

After years spent on the sidelines while creative thinkers tried to hatch a compelling script based on the legendary stuntman and daredevil, it would appear that Hollywood has taken a shine to Evel Knievel.
As reported by Deadline, Paramount has now entered the fray to assemble a crack team for a new live-action feature, and the studio has recruited Oscar-winning scribe William Monahan for the gig. Not only that, but Monahan may have a chance to reunite with his collaborator from The Departed, with the outlet revealing that Martin Scorsese is now being courted to direct.
Not to be confused with Sony’s biopic of Robert “Evel” Knievel – one which has attracted the attention of Channing Tatum and The Wrestler’s Darren Aronofsky – Paramount’s feature is designed to chart the rise and rise of the titular daredevil, who become something of a household name during the 70s after performing »

This is interesting. We’ve reported in the past few months or so that Channing Tatum is very interested in playing the role of daredevil stuntman Evel Knievel in a biopic, but that film, based over at Sony, is failing to get much traction. Now Paramount, and interestingly William Monahan are to set about making their own Knievel movie, and Martin Scorsese could end up directing it.
Monahan and Scorsese last worked together of the brilliant The Departed, and ended up clutching a couple of Oscars as a result, and their Knievel movie would draw from the Sheldon Saltman book Evel Knievel On Tour, which Paramount have also acquired. If the studio manages to get things going, the film will be largely set around Evel’s legendary attempt to jump Snake River Canyon in a rocket.
There’s no official word that Scorsese is officially on board as yet (he »

Well, the jam-packed comic book movie slate of 2017 just got a little less crowded as 20th Century Fox announced late Monday night that they've officially removed Fantastic Four 2 from their upcoming release schedule. The June 9, 2017 date is now solely occupied by Paramount Pictures' World War Z sequel. There's now an increased chance Fox decides to place an X-Men universe film here, with a Deadpool sequel and Channing Tatum's Gambit being the most likely candidates, however, if they really wanted to up the ante, they could always push back Hugh Jackman's final X-Men outing, Wolverine 3, from March to June. What this removal means for the future of the Fantastic Four franchise is yet-to-be seen, could the film be scrapped entirely? Tough to say and rationally speaking, discussion of a potential reunion with Marvel Studios seems a bit premature at this point. There is really no urgency on either »
William Monahan, who won an Oscar for adapted screenplay for “The Departed,” will write the script, based on the Sheldon Saltman book “Evel Knievel On Tour.” Producers optioned the rights to the book, which recaps Saltman’s promotion of the Snake River Canyon rocket-cycle jump by Knievel.
Publication of the book in 1977 outraged Knievel, who asserted the book misled the public about himself and his family. A few weeks after the release of “On Tour,” Knievel went onto the Fox lot, where Saltman was a VP, and broke Saltman’s arm with a baseball bat.

It was just a few months ago we learned that Darren Aronofsky was eying to potentially direct an Evel Knievel biopic produced by and starring Channing Tatum. However, he recently dropped the project and set his sights on a drama starring Jennifer Lawrence. Now it looks like the story of the infamous daredevil might still see screens, but in a different form.
According to Deadline, Paramount Pictures has now brought on William Monahan, the Oscar-winning to script a competing film about the famed daredevil who gained notoriety for his often successful, sometimes failed motorcycle stunts. And in even better news, the studio is hoping Martin Scorsese will reunite with his screenwriter of The Departed for the film. The director, whose next film Silence will likely premiere at Cannes, currently has a deal with the studio through 2019. So, if things go well with Monahan’s script, perhaps this could move up »

The nuptials took place in Palm Beach, Florida on Sunday evening, and Vergara shared snaps of everything on her Instagram page, including the jaw-dropping floral arrangements (starring strands of orchids dripping from the ceiling), the romantic lighting, and the main event: the actress's stunning, custom, customizable wedding gown.
According to People, the insanely beautiful bridal wear -- which featured a voluminous ballgown skirt that was detached for the reception -- came courtesy of Zuhair Murad Couture, and featured "a hand-embroidered bodice, contained 11 pounds of sequins and 6 pounds of pearls, and required 32 people to [work] around the clock to complete the design, which took a total of 1,657 hours." Yowza.
All that attention to detail more than paid off, though, as Vergara and Manganiello were picture perfect for their big day. »

Being Mrs. Joe Manganiello has its perks. Sofia Vergara learned that very quickly after saying "I do" Sunday at a The Breakers Resort near Palm Beach, Fla., where a source tells E! News that blushing bride was treated to a sexy dance from her new hubby and his Magic Mike Xxl co-star Channing Tatum! Both the groom, 38, and Channing, 35, busted out some hip-thrusting moves to the tune of the Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way," says a source. Both fellas gave Sofia, 43, quite a show, and not surprisingly, guests were clapping and cheering them on! According to People—who first reported on the Bsb dancefest—Joe went as far as to recreate the convenience store scene from Magic »
"The Departed" scribe William Monahan is set to pen a biopic about iconic daredevil Evel Knievel for Paramount Pictures, a film that the studio is hoping to get 'Departed' director Martin Scorsese onboard for.
The story is based on the Sheldon Saltman book "Evel Knievel On Tour," a book infamous for maddening Knievel in its depiction of his life on the road and its revelationo of embarrassing personal details. He got so mad he attacked the author with a baseball bat on the Fox lot and shattered his arm, winding up in all kinds of legal and financial woes.
Terence Winter ("Boardwalk Empire") and Rachel Winter ("Dallas Buyers Club") will produce the film which is still in very nascent stages and Scorsese won't make a decision on attaching until much further down the line.
Various attempts have been made to do a movie about Knievel in recent years, one that »
