Boyhood Director Richard Linklater Circling Where’d You Go Bernadette Adaptation

26 February 2015 9:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems Richard Linklater is spending no time resting on his laurels following the Oscar nomination for acclaimed family drama Boyhood, after it was announced that the filmmaker has entered early talks to helm the big-screen adaptation of Maria Semple’s novel Where’d You Go, Bernadette.

News comes by way of The Hollywood Reporter, who state that the project is being overseen by Annapurna Pictures — indie studio behind such titles as Her, American Hustle and The Master — which, should Linklater sign along the dotted line, would mark a reunion between the two parties given that the director worked under Annapurna for 1980s basketball drama, That’s What I’m Talking About, which wrapped production late last year.

Sticking with the family drama, Linklater’s next potential project will orbit around the titular persona, charting her successful life through the eyes of her 15-year-old daughter Bee Branch. What makes the story so intriguing, »

Linklater Considers "Bernadette" Next

26 February 2015 5:10 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Boyhood" director Richard Linklater is already moving on to future projects and is in talks to helm the unconventional and quirky family drama "Where'd You Go Bernadette" for Annapurna Pictures.

Based on Maria Semple's 2012 best seller, the story follows an agoraphobic architect and mother named Bernadette Branch who goes missing prior to a family trip to Antarctica.

It's the way the narrative unfolds that's distinct, the story is narrated by her 15-year-old daughter Bee Branch and is told through a series of emails, letters, F.B.I. documents, psychiatrist correspondence, and even an emergency room bill.

"Fault in Our Stars" writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber have adapted the script while Megan Ellison, Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson will produce.

Producing Huge Hits and Living Well Would Be Amy Pascal’s Best Revenge

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

After many years as a top studio executive, Amy Pascal has suddenly found herself unceremoniously kicked out of Hollywood’s elite club of decisionmakers into a world that will be alien to her.

For any deposed studio chief accustomed to calling the creative shots — deciding which scripts get bought, which films get made and which ones don’t — losing that power is a crushing ego blow.

The phones will ring less, emails will decline (which in Pascal’s case would be a blessing), and those $300-plus flower arrangements from Mark’s Garden sent by those looking to curry favor will fall off precipitously.

Pascal, 56, will now find herself having to compete with the throngs of Hollywood producers, those with deals on and off the Sony lot, peddling projects and begging for a greenlight.

She will be competing with several heavyweight producers she recently recruited to Sony — including former Warner Bros. »

With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown.

The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.

‘Agent X,’ ‘The Farm,’ ‘Genies’ Receiving California Tax Credits

5 February 2015 5:08 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A pair of upcoming cable series — TNT’s “Agent X” and USA’s “The Farm” — have been selected to receive production tax credits worth a combined $12.5 million from the state of California.

Paramount feature “Genies,” also known as “Children of the Lamp,” has also been selected for a $7.4 million credit from the California Film Tax Credit program for the 2014-15 fiscal year after moving off the waiting list. To receive the credit, production must start in California within 180 days of notification from the state.

Two studio movies that had been slated to receive allocations have been dropped from the program — New Line’s comedy “Mean Moms,” which had been in line for a $6.7 million credit, and Fox’s Beach Boys biopic “All Summer Long,” which had been set to receive a $7.7 million credit.

It’s not uncommon for waiting-list projects to wind up with the credit, which provides up to 25% of qualified expenditures. »

Amy Pascal's departure makes Hollywood almost a boy's club again

5 February 2015 12:06 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The news that Amy Pascal will step down as chairwoman of Sony Pictures is not shocking. In fact, it was expected.* This is how Hollywood works. You spend years running a studio or acting as president of production and then something goes wrong and you segue to a “producing” deal. That’s the way it’s been for almost 30 years and that’s the way it will be for the foreseeable future. Surviving any controversy, even one outside of your own control, is simply impossible. *Although forgive our surprise this wasn’t left to a late Friday afternoon announcement to quell reaction from the cable news talking heads. Pascal’s fate was sealed when numerous E-mail conversations she was a part of were leaked after a massive security breach credited to North Korean hackers took place on Nov. 24. Her E-mail exchange with producer Scott Rudin about the President of the »
