Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

Idris Elba Eyed for Villain Role in ‘Star Trek 3′ (Exclusive)

25 March 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Idris Elba is in early talks to play the villain in “Star Trek 3,” sources tell Variety.

Justin Lin is directing the pic, with Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana and Anton Yelchin all on board to return.

J.J. Abrams will produce along with his producing partner Bryan Burke and Skydance’s David Ellison. Production is set to start in June.

Details of Elba’s role are being kept under wraps. Early rumors suggest that Klingons would be the main villains in this movie, as they have not had a full presence in previous installments, but sources would not confirm if that was the case. Paramount and Skydance had no comment.

Pegg and Doug Jung are writing the script.

Elba stars in Cary Fukunaga’s “Beasts of No Nation,” which Netflix recently acquired for distribution, and is already garnering awards buzz for the actor.

Tribeca ’15: Stephen Colbert to interview George Lucas

18 March 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Though Stephen Colbert has dropped his iconic “Stephen Colbert” persona, the nerd side of him we always saw on The Colbert Report isn’t an act. We’ve previously shared moments that demonstrate Colbert’s nerddom for The Lord of the Rings, but near the end of the show’s run he talked about why he’s the truly original Star Wars fan.

Now the bearded Colbert, in between hosting duties, will interview George Lucas at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Vanity Fair reported that Colbert will speak with Lucas about Star Wars and Indiana Jones as part of the Tribeca Talks series, which this year also includes Christopher Nolan, Bennett Miller, Cary Fukunaga, and Brad Bird.

Vanity Fair also pointed to a recent Lucas quote from CinemaBlend, in which Lucas stated that his ideas were not the ones used by Disney or J.J. Abrams on Star Wars: Episode VII. »

SXSW: Netflix Takes 'Manson Family Vacation,' Yet Another Duplass Production

17 March 2015 5:45 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Netflix has made a strong push into the narrative feature realm at this year's South by Southwest Film Festival. Variety first reported that the company just acquired SXSW 2015 entry "Manson Family Vacation" from writer/director J. Davis and producers the Duplass Brothers. The comedy, for which word around Austin has not been high, follows two brothers (played by Jay Duplass and Linas Phillips) on a road trip to see the site of the Manson Family murders. This marks Netflix's second buy of the fest after picking up Hannah Fidell's buzzy young romance "6 Years," falling in line with the streaming service's four-picture pact with Mark and Jay Duplass—two of the heaviest hitters at SXSW this year.

Netflix Acquires ‘Manson Family Vacation’ at SXSW (Exclusive)

17 March 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix has acquired world distribution rights to “Manson Family Vacation,” a comedy produced by the Duplass brothers, Variety has learned.

The film, which premiered at SXSW on Monday night to good reviews, tells the story of two brothers (played by Jay Duplass and Linas Phillips) who embark on a road trip to the site of the Manson Family murders.

J. Davis wrote and directed the movie.

The acquisition is the latest in the streaming service’s aggressive push in feature films. Over the weekend, Netflix closed the first big deal at SXSW — picking up the buzzy relationship drama “6 Years,” which it plans to release later this year. Two weeks ago, Netflix also landed Cary Fukunaga’s “Beasts of No Nation,” and it announced a four-movie deal with the Duplass brothers in January. Adam Sandler has begun production on “Ridiculous 6,” co-starring Taylor Lautner, Whitney Cummings and Dan Aykroyd, for Netflix as »

Netflix Nabs Hannah Fidell Drama 6 Years In First SXSW Deal

16 March 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix has acquired drama 6 Years, from A Teacher director Hannah Fidell, at the South By Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, sealing this year’s first major deal.

The streaming service reportedly paid in the $1 million range for global rights to the film, which it will premiere in all markets later this year.

American Horror Story actress Taissa Farmiga and Boardwalk Empire alum Ben Rosenfield star in the film as a young couple whose relationship is challenged by job opportunities that send them down different paths. Lindsay Burdge, Joshua Leonard, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Jennifer Lafleur and Peter Vack co-star, while Fidell both helmed and penned the script.

The acquisition isn’t completely out of the blue – Netflix signed a four-picture deal with the Duplass brothers (big names on the festival circuit), who produced 6 Years, at Sundance earlier this year, though this pick-up is not included in that agreement.

While we're always excited to hit a film festival and watch anything and everything until our eyes can't take it anymore, sometimes it's worth staying out of a screening and taking in a panel discussion or interview instead. This year at the Tribeca Film Festival, organizers have put together such a terrific slate of talks, we might just have to skip the movies altogether or learn to go a week or two without any sleep. Let's start with the Tribeca Talks series which has four exciting events scheduled: Christopher Nolan talking about this work with Bennett Miller; George Lucas doing the same with Stephen Colbert; Brad Bird talking about his spectacles with Janeane Garofalo, while Cary Fukunaga gets down with James Schamus.

SXSW News: Netflix's Deal with Duplass Brothers Pays Off on Hannah Fidell Drama '6 Years'

15 March 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Don't mess with Netflix. No wonder theatrical distributors are threatened by the massive online buyer. It has deep pockets and while it took careful steps moving into series production ("House of Cards," "Orange is the New Black") and documentary pickups (Oscar-nominated "The Square," "Virunga"), and is partnering on Leonardo DiCaprio's upcoming doc on the environment, Netflix is now challenging distributors on their home turf, bypassing theatrical and taking festival titles into the home.  Domestic buyers were not happy when Netflix acquired "True Detective" auteur Cary Fukunaga's feature "Beasts of No Nation," which would ordinarily be a high profile theater-bound project. (Making a pact to make movies starring stumbling comedian Adam Sandler, whose "The Cobbler" tanked this weekend, bothered no one.) Netflix landed this deal because they recently made a four-picture pact with the ubiquitous Jay and »

SXSW: Netflix Snags Global Rights to ‘6 Years’

15 March 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix has nabbed global rights to Hannah Fidell’s “6 Years” and plans to debut the drama on its streaming service later this year.

The move continues the Internet giant’s aggressive recent forays into the feature film space. Earlier this month, it beat out a range of indie labels for rights to Cary Fukunaga’s feature “Beasts of No Nation” and announced plans to partner with Leonardo DiCaprio on a feature-length documentary about the environment.

Netflix has already fielded Oscar-nominated documentaries “Virunga” and “The Square” and signed deals to produce feature films with Adam Sandler.

“6 Years” stars Taissa Farmiga (“American Horror Story”) and Ben Rosenfield (“Boardwalk Empire”) as young lovers at a crossroads. It premiered at SXSW, earning a mixed review from Variety‘s Justin Chang, who wrote the picture “too often veers toward melodramatic overstatement.”

The film is Fidell’s follow-up to “A Teacher,” which courted controversy with its »

Plan B Snags Stephen King’s The Jaunt For Mama Helmer

12 March 2015 7:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B has optioned feature rights to The Jaunt, a 1981 Stephen King short story about a futuristic method of teleportation. Andy and Barbara Muschietti, the duo behind 2013 frightener Mama (he directed, she produced and both collaborated on the screenplay), have been tapped to develop, with Andy directing.

King’s story was first published in Twilight Zone Magazine but only garnered acclaim when it was included in the author’s 1985 short-story collection, Skeleton Crew. Set in the 24th century, the story revolves around ‘jaunting,’ a method of teleportation in which the individual is put under anesthesia during their travels, lest the process cause their mind to implode from experiencing time standing still. One father, preparing his family for a trip to Mars, recounts the controversial and chilling history of jaunting.

No studio has been set to handle The Jaunt, but Plan B’s first-look deal with »
