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

Birdman” has won the Producers Guild of America’s Darryl F. Zanuck Award for best movie — elevating its status as an awards-season front-runner since the last seven PGA winners have gone on to win the Best Picture Oscar.

Fox Searchlight’s dark comedy, starring Michael Keaton as a washed-up film star, topped “American Sniper,’ “Boyhood,” “Foxcatcher,” “Gone Girl,” “Grand Budapest Hotel,” “The Imitation Game,” “Nightcrawler,” “The Theory of Everything” and “Whiplash.”

Boyhood” had been the consensus favorite to win the PGA trophy — based on voting by more than 6,700 PGA members — with “American Sniper,” “Birdman” and “Imitation Game” pegged as the most likely to score an upset.

The award went to director Alejandro G. Inarritu, John Lesher, James W. Skotchdopole.

“They want me to talk so that I make you laugh with my bad English,” Inarritu said. “On behalf of all of us, our only ambition was to make a risky »

Digital Players Could Give Sundance Spending a Lift

21 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood descends on the Sundance Film Festival this week, checkbooks in hand, hoping to find the next big thing in indie movies. In many cases, that means buyer beware, because the thin mountain air in Park City can turn conservative bidders into free spenders.

“People get the fever sometimes,” says Jim Berk, CEO of Participant Media. “Everybody is looking for that next ‘Juno’ or ‘(500) Days of Summer.’ They want to find the next Cary Fukunaga or that new hot director they have to be in business with. That’s what drives the hype and the excitement.”

It’s easy to see why Sundance, with its bucolic setting, history of producing iconoclastic films, and reputation as a showcase for new talent, remains an essential stop for buyers and sellers. Yet despite the popularity of VOD and emergence of new digital platforms such as Netflix and Amazon hungry to distribute content in all its forms, »

Seth Grahame-Smith says It movie “will bring back some of the viciousness of the book”

19 January 2015 2:14 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month it was revealed that True Detective helmer Cary Fukunaga has signed on to direct the first of a two-part feature adaptation of Stephen King’s classic horror novel It, and producer Seth Grahame-Smith has been speaking about the project to EW, during which he promised a “vicious” and “scary” adaptation of the book.

“I think that if anything, [the film] will bring back some of the viciousness of the book that they couldn’t do with the miniseries because it was for broadcast. I think it’s going to be very scary, but I also feel like you’ve got Cary who is going to direct these kids—and he’s incredible at casting, incredible at shooting. He’s incredible with tone and atmosphere.”

Graheme-Smith then went on to give an update on the project’s progress, stating that: “We’re going to get a draft, what is supposed to »

New Adaptation of Stephen King's It Will Be Scary and Vicious

19 January 2015 8:54 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) is preparing to shoot the first of a two part big screen adaptation of Stephen King's It. The plan is to start filming it this summer.

Seth Grahame-Smith, who is one of the producers of the film, talked about the adaptation in an interview with EW and said that they are moving pretty quickly into production and revealed a little more about what we can expect from the highly-anticipated horror movie.

It is my number one favorite story from King. It's just such a terrifying and horrific tale, and one of my favorite aspects of the story is that the nightmarish events revolve around a group of kids who are called the "losers club." The fact that these insane events involving a murderous clown named Pennywise are happening to kids intensifies that fear. The first part of the film will focus on the kids, and »

Directors Guild Nominees Include Game of Thrones, Homeland & Silicon Valley

15 January 2015 8:24 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The Directors Guild of America released their list of nominees yesterday. The shows that were recognized included previously nominated series like Game of Thrones, Modern Family, House of Cards, and Homeland but also a great deal of newcomers, such as True Detective, Orange Is the New Black, Silicon Valley, and Transparent, which all scored first-time nominations. Game of ThronesAlex Graves and True Detective‘s Cary Joji Fukunaga receiving nods for their work was expected. However, what was surprising was that the only series to receive two nominations from the DGA was Homeland, which was recognized for the work of both Dan Attias in the episode “13 Hours in Islamabad” and Lesli Linka Glatter in “From A to B and Back Again.” If that second nomination had to go one of the already nominated series, I would have expected the DGA to honor Game of Thrones again for the technical achievement »

Half is a much more equal percentage than zero, no? Four women were nominated for five DGA awards in episodic television Wednesday morning, marking a giant step up from the film side of things where zero women made the cut — including "Selma" director Ava Duverney, who many expected to earn a slot. Jodie Foster earned nominations for directing episodes of both "Orange is the New Black" and "House of Cards," while "Homeland" dominated the drama category with two of the five nominations. Other big names to land nominations include Cary Joji Fukunaga for "True Detective," Louis C.K. for "Louie," Mike Judge for "Silicon Valley" and Jill Soloway for "Transparent."
