"This bad man is an asshole and I must throw him thru this cement pillar. My hand strength is like vice grips... he has no choice. For the record, this man is roughly 6'8 and well over 350lbs - he's massive and mean - I must run away now to preserve my health. #OnSet #MySaturdayNights #KnuckleUp" #StuntBrotherLuv #Jumanji" Doin' dirt with my stunt brothers tonight. Rehearsals before the bodies hit the floor... I'm searching for a good spot to break his leg with one shot. This scene also looks like what happens when
Dwayne Johnson revealed in his Instagram post that Karen Gillan's "jungle wardrobe will make sense when you know the plot," although he wouldn't offer any plot specifics at this time. Still, the skimpy costume became quite the hot topic, which lead to Karen Gillan releasing her own brief statement on Twitter. Here's what she had to say below, which could offer
Hart posted a first look at the upcoming 2017 “Jumanji” sequel. The photo features Hart standing beside co-stars Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black.
“Day 1 of shooting ‘Jumanji’ is officially in the can,” reads the post. “We had a [sic] amazing first day. The chemistry & energy of our cast & crew was beyond amazing!!!! This movie is going to be dope as hell….Can’t wait to get back to work tomorrow … #Jumanji.”
The film, which has been described as more of a continuation than a remake, is directed by Jake Kasdan and is based on the screenplay by Zach Helm, Chris McKenna, Jeff Pinkner, Scott Rosenberg and Erik Sommers. Principal photography is currently taking place in Honolulu, Hawaii.
“We’re going to try and reimagine ‘Jumanji’ and update it for the present,” said president of Columbia Pictures
Dwayne Johnson announced earlier this month that his character is named Dr. Bravestone by showcasing concept art of his character. Today he revealed that Kevin Hart's character is named Moose Finbar, with Jack Black playing Professor Shelly Oberon and Karen Gillan playing Ruby Roundhouse. Here's what the actor had to say in his full Instagram post below.
"Before we embark on our #Jumanji here in Hawaii, we gathered our entire cast (here with me are Jack Black, Kevin Hart, our director Jake Kasdan and Karen Gillan) and crew together as our Hawaiian Kahu (priest) Cordell Keka blesses our film with powerful aloha spirit of laughter, enjoyment and love. I often talk about mana (spirit) with you guys and the mana in this room/in this moment was extremely powerful -
John Malkovich has acted in 98 films and is about to make his London directorial debut with Zach Helm’s Good Canary, a play about success, secrets and addiction. He has directed the play in Mexico and in France, where it won Molière awards for direction and design.
What drew you to Good Canary and why return to it?
Lucy Liu, who was at the time going out with Zach, originally approached me with the script and I loved it. Theatre is like surfing. An actor paddles out, gets on a board and waits for the wave: the wave is the collision between your material and the public. You don’t create the wave, you ride it. In good material, there will almost invariably be a wave – and
First Look Media snapped up Helm’s project, which is inspired by the short-lived conflict between Anonymous and Los Zetas, which is purportedly the largest, most brutal, and most technologically-advanced cartel in Mexico. Back in 2011, the hacktivist group reportedly stumbled upon 25,000 Mexican ...
Stranger Than Fiction director Zach Helm has found his next project, led by Daniel Radcliffe and Zachary Quinto, Deadline reports. We Do Not Forget follows the true story of the battle between the infamous hacking group Anonymous and the Mexican drug cartel, which seems like a bit of an uneven fight. The
“We’re so excited to work with Zach on this,” said Michael Bloom, President of First Look Media, who is financing the project. “It’s a subject that we’re close to, handled in a way that’s powerful and complex. And to be in the hands of producers Antoine Fuqua and Kat Samick and this talented cast, we’re sure we’re going to get a thrilling film.”
The inspiration from the film was an event where Anonymous reportedly uncovered 25,000 Mexican government emails containing names and details of the Los Zetas members, and threatened
Sometimes funny, often poignant, narration can be hugely effective when deployed successfully. Ryan picks a few great examples...
“God help you if you use voice-over in your work my friends! God help you. That’s flaccid, sloppy writing. Any idiot can use narration to explain the thoughts of a character.”
So says screenwriting coach Robert McKee in Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman’s 2002 film, Adaptation. Well, not the real screenwriting coach Robert Mckee, but the one played in superbly aggressive style by actor Brian Cox, who stomps about on stage at a writing seminar like an angry bull. Brilliantly, McKee’s condemnation of voice-overs interrupts the interior thoughts, as narrated by Nicolas Cage’s fictionalised version of Charlie Kaufman - a terminally anxious screenwriter with an Everest-sized case of writer’s block.
It’s an example of the quirky, hall-of-mirrors kind of humour that courses through Adaptation,
The project has been in development for several years, with Zach Helm coming aboard to write the script back in 2012. The most current version of the script was written by Scott Rosenberg (Con Air) and Jeff Pinkner. Our report from October revealed that Jeff Pinkner, who co-created CBS' summer TV series Zoo with Scott Rosenberg, was coming on board to consult with the script, alongside André Nemec and Josh Appelbaum (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).
The remake is said to be a high priority for the studio,
The remake is said to be a high priority for the studio, described as a "re-imagination" of the original 1995 blockbuster Jumanji, which starred Robin Williams, Kirsten Dunst, Bonnie Hunt and Bebe Neuwirth. The original movie was spawned from the board game and book by writer Chris Van Allsburg (The Polar Express, Zathura). The movie earned a whopping $262.7 million worldwide at the box office, from a $65 million production budget.
Jumanji will hit theaters on Christmas
