That’s according to the man himself, who spook to The Playlist recently and confirmed that “I have nothing to do with that movie.” A shame, really, considering van Hoytema’s flair behind the camera – a talent that would have no doubt been a major coup for Patty Jenkins’ standalone feature. Currently, Wonder Woman is still on course to begin filming in London this fall, assembling Gal Gadot as the title heroine and Chris Pine as love interest Trevor, respectively.

What this means is that, despite Hoyte van Hoytema not featuring in the production, Warner Bros. will waste no time in filling the cinematographer place, especially when you consider that Jenkins’ is reportedly scouting for locations in the English capital for when the cameras start rolling. »

It seems Meet The Movie Press was a bit premature in reporting that the director of photography behind Interstellar, Her and the upcoming Spectre, Hoyte Van Hoytema, would be working on the Wonder Woman movie. When The Playlist reached out to the Dutch-Swedish cinematographer for confirmation earlier today, he told the site "I have nothing to do with that movie" in response. That's really too bad as many were excited to see the Amazon Princess' standalone venture be filmed by Hoyte Van Hotema, whose previous films have been Oscar-winners. There is no word on who will actually be behind the camera when Wonder Woman starts shooting in London and Italy this fall, but the long-awaited movie will be directed by Patty Jenkins, and star Gal Gadot (Diana Prince) and Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), with a release date set for June 23, 2017.

Director: Craig Zobel. Writers: Nissar Modi and Robert C. O'Brien. Cast: Margot Robbie, Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Z for Zachariah is a novel adaptation. The film takes place in a post-apocalyptic Christian paradise, in which a young religious woman struggles with loneliness. Loneliness is the least of her problems when two men enter her life. Here, the film's Christian themes become predominant and an Adam an Eve storyline is brought into the play. The Devil wins again and one character is tempted into murder, while another is tempted by lust. This dramatic film offers a sombre tone and very strong performances. Z for Zachariah is a compelling film and recommended to fans of the genre. The film begins with Ann (Margot Robbie). Lilith, Eve or Ann is busy farming and looking after herself, in a remote valley. An undefined catastrophic nuclear event has irradiated everything outside of this idyllic »

"I've read some of those scripts and 75 percent is a description of some asteroid going through space."
However, the Irrational Man star admitted that he's warmed to the idea of effects-driven studio films from a viewer's perspective.
"When I was younger I was probably a bit of a snob about [blockbusters]. But they've gotten better," he said.
Over the years Joaquin Phoenix's name has been rumored for several major studio tentpole films, most recently he came very close to taking on the role of Doctor Strange for Marvel Studios - ultimately passing on the part to Benedict Cumberbatch.
In a new interview with Time Out London, Phoenix has spoken about how he's turned down blockbuster films in the past and says that he simply doesn't find the idea of acting in them to be worth it for him:
"When I was younger I was probably a bit of a snob about [taking on blockbuster roles]. But they've gotten better. I've flirted with several of those films, having meetings and getting close, but ultimately it never felt like they'd really be fulfilling.
There were too many requirements that went against my instincts for character. I've been spoiled. I've never had to make those compromises. I've not met a director yet with »

Back in February, we reported that Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Wonder Woman begins production this fall, but we were never given any specifics about where shooting may take place. During last week's episode of Meet the Movie Press, it was revealed that the superhero adventure has landed a cinematographer, with Interstellar's Hoyte Van Hoytema signing on, while Yahoo! Italy reports that Wonder Woman will be partially shot in Basilicata, Italy. These reports haven't been confirmed at this time, but if shooting is scheduled to commence sometime this fall, we should get confirmation soon.
Hoyte Van Hoytema first made his mark with director Tomas Alfredson's 2008 thriller Let the Right One in, which lead to more high-profile work in The Fighter, Tomas Alfredson's English language debut Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Her and Interstellar. He also served as the Dp on the upcoming James Bond action-thriller Spectre, arriving in theaters »

Star Trek Beyond is currently shooting, and thus far, we've been treated to numerous behind-the-scenes videos in support of the Omaze charity initiative. The cast has used this opportunity to raise awareness for a variety of charities from set, and as co-writer and star Simon Pegg points out in this latest sneak peek, fans only have 48 hours left to donate. An added bonus, we get to see bloopers from all of the previous videos. And, a new alien is revealed!
Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin and newcomer Idris Elba are all present in this latest look at the Starship Enterprise. Only this time, the gang is having a little too much fun as they flub their lines and miss their marks. If you fast forward to the 1:55 point, you'll even see the prosthetic head of an unidentified extraterrestrial who is making their debut in the rebooted franchise. »
Z for Zacharia is out in theatres and on VOD now, so check your local listings and check out this post-apocalyptic drama based on Robert C. O'Brien's classic novel of survival.
The film has an all star cast in Chris Pine, Margot Robbie and Chiwetel Ejiofor and though it apparently strays from the source material, these clips make me down for a little character driven Pa just to mix things up from the so much zombie/fury road fare.
To celebrate the release of the film to the masses, here are a bevy of clips.

Margot Robbie offered to shave her head for 'Z for Zachariah'. The Australian actress, who stars in the new sci-fi drama alongside Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor, admits she was eager to distance herself from her sexy image as much as possible. The 25-year-old beauty explained: ''I had just finished 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and it was great to do something different. The director asked if I'd dye my hair, and I said, 'I'll shave it off. Whatever you want!' I was keen on not being typecast.'' Margot also insists she is a tomboy at heart. She said: ''I grew up on a farm in Australia, so I knew how to milk cows and ride tractors.'' The trio formed a close bond while filming the movie, and the actress says it helped them really feel like they were the only people left on the planet. »
Believe it or not, Margot Robbie says she wasn't always the hot property she is now.
The actress, who stars in thriller Z for Zachariah alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chris Pine, told The Guardian that she had to fight for her role - because she "didn't have enough international value".
"I was actually trying to get the role of Ann in Z for Zachariah before I had done Wolf (of Wall Street)", she said. "But because I hadn't done a large film, I didn't have enough international value to my name to get the film funded.
"So another actress was attached who had been in more bigger budget, commercial films. Ironically, you have to do the bigger films in order to make a small film."
Robbie, who has just wrapped filming on Suicide Squad, said that she considers all actors to have a "price tag".

There’s a reason audiences can’t get enough of the apocalypse. Stories about the end of days, about how men and women would fare in the face of societal collapse, compel for reasons both modern and ancient. How would people raised on easy access to technology survive if the power went out? Would a new stone age be the death of us, or would we resentfully learn to readjust? And what would that loss of connectivity mean for the fabric of civilization itself? Would humanity in isolation regress into savagery, or would we cling to our moral compasses with all our might?
Director Craig Zobel’s meditative, mesmerizing Z For Zachariah may not be the most action-packed of post-apocalyptic tales, but it has all these questions on its mind and more. Set in an Edenic valley that’s been mysteriously spared from the unexplained calamity that irradiated the rest of the planet, »

Read More: Review: Craig Zobel's 'Z for Zachariah' is Not Your Typical Post-Apocalyptic Romance With three feature films under his belt, filmmaker Craig Zobel isn't quite a veteran, but he's no longer a newbie. Zobel's first two features played to strong acclaim on the festival circuit — 2007's "Great World of Sound" played at New York's New Directors and New Films Festival and also earned Zobel the Breakthrough Director Awards at that year's Gotham Awards, while "Compliance" premiered at Sundance in 2012, going on to screen at Locarno, Deauville and BAMcinemaFest, among others — but neither rocketed the filmmaker to the top of blockbuster wish lists, as has become far more commonplace over the years. But the cast for Zobel's new film, "Z for Zachariah," comes complete with three big names from the blockbuster world, including Margot Robbie (soon to be seen in DC's "Suicide Squad"), Chris Pine of »

With production in full swing on Paramount’s Star Trek Beyond, MTV caught up with star Zachary Quinto to ask his thoughts on new director Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6), who has taken over from J.J. Abrams to helm the third instalment in the relaunched feature film series.
“Invariably there’s going to be a different vibe when you remove someone as gregarious and outgoing and talented as J.J.,” states Quinto. “But Justin has come in with this really interesting and confident energy that’s a little bit more reserved and a little bit quieter, but also very powerful and really sure-handed. He knows exactly what he wants this movie to look like and that’s really exciting.”
Meanwhile, speaking to The Telegraph, Quinto revealed that Spock won’t share many scenes with Chris Pine’s Kirk in Beyond, »
