Barry L. Levy Developing Movie on Boston Strangler (Exclusive)

26 July 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Barry L. Levy will direct “Stranglehold,” a movie about the Boston Strangler Task Force with Todd Garner and Sean Robins producing through their Broken Road company.

The Solution Entertainment Group will finance the project and produce “Stranglehold.” Myles Nestel is producing with Lisa Wilson, and Stephen Emery is executive producing.

Levy is set to make his directorial debut and will helm from his own script. His screenwriting credits include “Vantage Point” and “Paranoia.”

“Stranglehold” tells the untold true story of the Boston Strangler Task Force, which was assembled as a special unit by the Massachusetts Attorney General to stop the serial killer after more than a dozen unsolved murders in the early 1960s. What no one could have predicted was that this group, led by a disgraced Boston Police Detective and a Hollywood psychic, would unearth an even more heinous crime.

Producers are planning to begin casting immediately.

Toronto Film Festival 2016: What Films Will Contend For Oscar Gold After Tiff Premieres

26 July 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Toronto Film Festival, which runs September 8-18, announced its lineup today with a ton of potential Oscar contenders — but it’s not the only showcase that some of them will have in the fall. Tiff has been sensitive of late about Labor Day weekend rival Telluride’s annual panoply of unannounced Oscar contenders. However, the two film events work in concert, as the earlier well-curated festival — attended by a small coterie of influencers — builds buzz for the later, sprawling Tiff, with its larger mass of junket media, including the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes on the Golden Globes.

New poster for War Dogs starring Jonah Hill and Miles Teller

22 July 2016 6:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a little over a month to go until its release, Warner Bros. has debuted a new poster for Todd Phillips’ upcoming action comedy War Dogs featuring Jonah Hill and Miles Teller; check it out here…

Based on a true story, “War Dogs” follows two friends in their early 20s (Hill and Teller) living in Miami during the first Iraq War who exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts.  Starting small, they begin raking in big money and are living the high life.  But the pair gets in over their heads when they land a 300 million dollar deal to arm the Afghan Military—a deal that puts them in business with some very shady people, not the least of which turns out to be the U.S. Government.

‘Hands of Stone’ Joins This Year’s Oscar Race

21 July 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The life of Roberto Durán gets a stirring and thrilling big-screen adaptation with “Hands of Stone,” a new awards season-friendly film from writer-director Jonathan Jakubowicz. As the trailer below indicates, this is a movie that pulls no punches. Starring up-and-coming actor Édgar Ramírez as the famous Panamanian boxer, “Hands of Stone” traces Durán’s journey from the slums of his hometown, to his professional boxing debut in 1968 at age 16, to his world-renowned Wbc welterweight fight in 1980 with Sugar Ray Leonard (played by musician Usher Raymond IV). Two-time Academy Award winner Robert De Niro plays Ray Arcel, the trainer who led 18 boxers, including Durán, to world championships. To be released Aug. 26, “Hands of Stone” comes to theaters before another 2016 awards season movie about professional boxing: “Bleed for This,” starring Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart. Will the two films take each other on in the Oscar ring? Watch the trailer below. Want to compete for an Oscar? »

Extended Comic-Con Clip For Trolls Targets Your Happy Place

21 July 2016 1:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

DreamWorks’ furry critters run rampant – and belt out a song or two – in today’s all-new clip for Trolls, the upcoming animation directed by the studio’s Shrek dream team, Mike Mitchell, Walt Dohrn and Gina Shay.

Hailing from San Diego Comic-Con, the extended snippet sheds light on Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake’s pint-sized protagonists, as they squabble under a blanket of stars. Timberlake, who appears to be playing the grouchier Troll of the two, struggles to get some shut-eye, prompting Kendrick’s enthused critter to offer a delicate over of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence.”

They’ll be joined for the movie by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Russell Brand, Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Beasts of the Southern Wild breakout Quvenzhané Wallis, with John Cleese and Gwen Stefani. And…exhale.

Come November 4, Trolls will test its might against notable »

'The Divergent Series: Ascendant' Moving To Television

21 July 2016 7:48 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Well, this was unexpected.  

In a shocking move that, if successful, could send ripples through the industry and genuinely change how properties are both grown and expanded, Lionsgate has decided to drop plans for a fourth Divergent movie, believed to have been called Ascendant, and instead make a television movie with possible spinoff series.  

The Divergent Series started strong, but the most recent sequel, Allegiant, did not perform at the box office, and was generally viewed as enough of a failure to bring the plans for the fourth film into question.  No one, however, thought that a movie to television would be the plan of action. 

Negotiations are just beginning, but Shailene Woodley, who starred in the series thus far, has already been approached to be in the television movie, with no answer apparently given yet.  No word on co-stars Miles Teller and Ansel Elgort being involved.  Moving to the »

Hands of Stone Trailer Brings Robert de Niro Back to the Boxing Ring

21 July 2016 7:46 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While the sport of boxing may not be as popular as mixed martial arts (Mma) these days, boxing movies are still quite popular. Sylvester Stallone teamed up with Michael B. Jordan and director Ryan Coogler to breathe new life into the Rocky franchise with last year's critical and box office hit Creed, and this year fans will be treated to a biopic of one of the sport's all-time greats, Roberto Duran. Today we have the first trailer for The Weinstein Company's Hands of Stone, which brings this boxer's epic journey to life.

Hands of Stone follows the life of Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez), the Panamanian fighter who made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16 year&#8208old and retired in 2002 at the age of 50. In June 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) to capture the Wbc welterweight title, but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in their November rematch, »

Watch: Second Trailer for Panamanian Boxer Movie 'Hands of Stone'

20 July 2016 8:18 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This is inexplicable!" The Weinstein Company has unveiled the full-length, official trailer for Hands of Stone, one of the two major boxing movies this year (the other being Miles Teller's Bleed For This). The film tells the true story of professional boxer Roberto Durán, played by Edgar Ramirez, who hails from Panama. Durán fought predominantly during the 80s and is still considered one of the greatest boxers of all-time, earning the nickname "Hands of Stone" during his career. The cast includes Robert De Niro as trainer Ray Arcel, plus Usher Raymond IV as Sugar Ray Leonard, Ana de Armas, Ellen Barkin, and John Turturro. The first teaser didn't show much, but this one gives us a good look at what to expect in this story about a legendary boxer. It seems as much about Durán as it does about Sugar Ray Leonard, too.

Some 'Divergent' Stars Expected to Opt Out as Finale Shifts to TV

20 July 2016 3:24 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In a shocking move, Lionsgate is jettisoning the finale of its Divergent Series to the small screen. Sources say the studio will reconfigure the project, dubbed Ascendant, as a TV movie and position it for a spinoff series, with Lionsgate TV taking the reins on production. Lionsgate declined comment. Shailene Woodley starred in the first three movies, which never lived up to expectations as the next big Ya franchise. It is unclear whether she or her co-stars Miles Teller and Ansel Elgort would return for a TV version, but a source close to the actress wouldn't rule it out.

Edgar Ramirez Has Hands Of Stone And Nerves Of Steel In New Trailer For Boxing Flick

20 July 2016 2:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last year, it was Southpaw and the rather excellent Creed that enthralled the moviegoing masses, but 2016 is cooking up a one-two punch of its own. Before Miles Teller learns to Bleed For This in November, it is Edgar Ramirez who will step into the ring for Hands of Stone, The Weinstein Company’s starry biopic that finds Robert De Niro in the role of accomplished trainer, Ray Arcel.

De Niro, who so brilliantly captured the imagination of a generation in Raging Bull, will find himself on the other side of the ropes in Jonathan Jakubowicz’s feature. It’s one he wrote and directed, too, chronicling the inspired journey of Panamanian boxer, Roberto Durån.

Celebrated as one of the finest fighters the sport has ever produced, Edgar Ramirez will don the boxing gloves in TWC’s feature film, as it charts Durån’s rise and rise to the tip-top of the boxing hierarchy, »

‘The Unknown Girl’ Trailer: The Dardenne Brothers Bring Social Realism To The Detective Genre

18 July 2016 8:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

From the socially urgent storylines to the handheld camerawork, you often know exactly what you’re getting into when you put on a film by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne. Their social dramas carry a sense of realism that has earned them countless accolades across the globe, and while their new drama, “The Unknown Girl,” bears their stylistic trademarks, it also finds them embracing genre, in this case the murder mystery/detective story.
