Fox Developing Murder Mystery ‘A Simple Favor’ as Movie (Exclusive)

29 January 2016 3:54 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox 2000 has bought movie rights to Darcey Bell’s upcoming murder mystery “A Simple Favor,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The pre-emptive deal for “A Simple Favor” was closed Thursday and has not yet been set with a producer. The story has been pitched as being in the vein of Gillian Flynn’s 2012 novel “Gone Girl” and Paula Hawkins’ 2015 debut “The Girl on the Train” — two best-selling thrillers in which a female protagonist disappears from a seemingly perfect relationship, part of the “domestic noir” genre.

“A Simple Favor” centers on three small-town characters: a mommy blogger, her best friend who disappears suddenly and the latter’s husband. The story includes betrayals and reversals, a dead body and the revolving question of who is duping whom.

Bell is a pre-school teacher in Chicago. The publication rights to “A Simple Favor” have been sold as part of a two-book to Harper Collins for »

See Full Gallery Here

Tom Hiddleston has a date with destiny in the latest batch of stills for Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise, which send his Dr. Robert Laing into the depths of the director’s twisted tower of terror.

Adapted from  J.G. Ballard’s acclaimed novel of the same name, Wheatley’s latest looks set to be another bold and psychedelic addition to résumé that is becoming increasingly surreal with each passing release. For the uninitiated, the eye-catching British director also helmed Kill List, Sightseers and A Field in England, and his catapulted onto the list of director’s you daren’t take your eye off even in such a short space of time.

As for High-Rise, Hiddleston’s brilliant doctor Laing is the newcomer to a residency that is masking a deep and dark secret. Relegating the lower class to the bottom floors and keeping the upper echelons of society at the tip-top, »

Go All The Way (to the Top) with Tom Hiddleston in Graphic 'High Rise' Poster

28 January 2016 10:39 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Toronto Review: Ben Wheatley's 'High Rise' Stars Tom Hiddleston in a Demented Class War The inventive international marketing campaign for Ben Wheatley's genre thriller "High Rise" continues today with the release of a subversively graphic new poster. In what looks to be somewhat of a riff on text and iconography of the "Fast and Furious" franchise, the poster gets a disturbing punch to the gut as the reflection of a man jumping out of a high-rise window can be seen reflecting off the roof of a car.  Wheatley's latest is based on J.G. Ballard’s 1975 sci-fi novel of the same name. Set in a luxurious apartment that houses anything you could think of (think of it like a building version of the train in "Snowpiercer"), the movie deals with the class warfare that breaks out after a series of power outages. Tom Hiddleston leads the ensemble cast, »

While Ben Wheatley's "High-Rise" boasts his starriest cast yet — Tom Hiddleston, Luke Evans, Sienna Miller, Jeremy Irons, Elisabeth Moss, and more — the bold, weird, surreal film won't be for everyone's taste. But for fans of the filmmaker, they'll be pleased for what's his most outrageous movie yet. Read More: Tiff Review: Ben Wheatley's 'High-Rise' Starring Tom Hiddleston, Luke Evans, And Sienna Miller Based on the book by J.G. Ballard, the story chronicles the social breakdown in a high-rise apartment complex, where the more affluent occupy the top floors. So yes, there's a sorta "Snowpiercer" flavor, but this is far more strange, carrying it's own unique biting tenor. "High-Rise" opens in the U.K. on March 18th and later this year in the U.S. »

Live action fairytale movies: UK release date calendar

When to expect all the upcoming live action fairytale movies, including Dumbo, Beauty And The Beast and two Jungle Books…

You’ve probably noticed the influx of live action fairytales gracing cinemas in recent years. This isn’t about to stop any time soon, since re-spinning a recognisable fantastical yarn with real people instead of animated ones always makes big money for the studio behind it.

This process has become so popular that there are currently more of these live action fairytales in production than Marvel Studios, DC Entertainment or Star Wars movies. That’s a lot of films. (A whopping 21 by our count.)

Although it wadsn’t the first movie of this kind, Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland – and its worldwide gross of over a billion dollars – can surely take the credit for kick-starting this trend. Here are all the in-development movies trying to repeat its success, »

Watch: Tom Hiddleston Veers off the Rails in ‘High-Rise’ Trailer

7 January 2016 3:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tom Hiddleston appears to be losing his grip in a new “High-Rise” trailer released by StudioCanal through the actor’s Twitter feed.

The 75-second trailer, which includes portions of Tangerine Dream’s score from 1983’s “Risky Business,” portrays an increasingly troubled Hiddleston departing from an ordinary life to find himself in the middle of sex and violence.

“What are you doing in there?” a disembodied voice demands at the start and the end of the trailer.

Directed by Ben Wheatley, the thriller stars Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, Jeremy Irons, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, James Purefoy, Reece Shearsmith, Peter Ferdinando and Dan Renton Skinner.

The film opens in the U.K. on March 18. Magnolia Picture acquired U.S. rights to “High-Rise” in December but has not set a release date.
