Fox developing live-action Peter Pan TV series, will follow The Lost Boys after leaving Neverland

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fox is currently developing a Peter Pan TV series but with a twist. The project – entitled League of Pan – will follow the Lost Boys fifteen years after leaving Neverland and living in the real world. Here’s the pitch from Deadline:

It picks up the Lost Boys fifteen years after they left Neverland. Now men and very much estranged, the Lost Boys are forced back together when they realize someone is killing them off one by one. To find out who and why and stay alive, they’ll have to get past the bitter rivalries and bad blood that forced them out of paradise and rediscover the magic that made them fearless. This time in the very real world of contemporary Los Angeles.

The series is described in its logline as a “soapy thriller” that is “grounded and edgy” and sounds rather ridiculous, but it could turn out to be fun. »

Stephen Daldry’s ‘Trash’ Bags Top Rome Fest Nod

25 October 2014 2:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

British director Stephen Daldry’s “Trash,” about a trio of charismatic kids living next to a Rio garbage dump who stumble upon evidence certain to bring down a corrupt politico, took the top nod at the recently reconfigured Rome Film Festival where, instead of a jury, prizes are decided by paying ticket holders, to serve as a testing ground for distributors.

Trash,” a South American answer of sorts to “Slumdog Millionaire,” world-preemed in Rio. Scripted by Richard Curtis, it features turns by Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara, alongside a mostly Brazilian cast. Universal will be releasing worldwide.

Daldry’s previous three pics, “Billy Elliot,” “The Hours,” and “The Reader,” all earned Oscar noms.

The top nod in the auteur-driven Cinema d’Oggi section went to prominent Chinese theater director Xu Ang’s “12 Citizens,” inspired by Sydney Lumet’s 1957 Hollywood classic “Twelve Angry Men.”

The Mondo Genre section prize went to “Haider, »

25 October 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Academy usual suspect Stephen Daldry's much-anticipated thriller "Trash," starring Rooney Mara, is skipping the Oscars this year.

Cinephiles are eager to see the film after a well-received early teaser (below). Focus Features plans a 2015 release.  Per Rt, the heart-tugger has been well-received across the board. Variety wrote: "Cleanly scripted in pure Hollywood fashion by Richard Curtis... 'Trash' won’t be confused for a real Brazilian production: Its storyline, staging and inevitably positive spin unmistakably mark it as offshore, notwithstanding the participation of Fernando Meirelles’ 02 Filmes. A South American answer of sorts to 'Slumdog Millionaire,' the pic features a trio of charismatic kids living next to a Rio garbage dump who. »

22 October 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Barring his excellent miniseries take on “Mildred Pierce,” Todd Haynes hasn’t released a feature film since 2007’s experimental Bob Dylan biopic, “I’m Not There.” However, the director is ending his big-screen drought with the Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara-starring “Carol,” and now we have a few more details on the period piece. A few weeks ago, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago hosted Haynes and his frequent collaborator, costume designer Sandy Powell, for a special screening of “Velvet Goldmine” for the museum’s ongoing “David Bowie Is” exhibit. Per The Film Stage (via MissBelivet), the duo revealed that “Carol” is nearing the end of post-production, with “mixing & color timing” to be completed in New York City, and that a spring 2015 premiere date is being eyed. Also of note? Apparently Harvey Weinstein “really gets” the film. So, see you at the Croisette? Despite taking place »

"Stephen Daldry’s Brazilian Answer To 'Slumdog Millionaire' ": First Reviews For 'Trash' With Rooney Mara Roll In

20 October 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While producers, filmmakers, and distributors hustle to get their movies in one of the major fall film festivals—Venice, Telluride, Toronto, New York—one movie that casually sidestepped all of them was Stephen Daldry's "Trash." The Brazil-shot film premiered at the Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival (naturally), hit the Haifa Film Fesitval, then the Rome Film Festival, with the Abu Dhabi Film Festival coming later this week, and the Stockholm International Film Film Festival next month. Now the first reviews are starting to roll in. While the movie features names like Rooney Mara, Wagner Moura, and Martin Sheen, it actually pivots around three boys (Rickson Teves, Eduardo Luis, and Gabriel Weinstein) and a wallet full of cash found while trash-picking in the local dump. With a reward out for its return, they turn to a pair of missionaries who may just be able to help them solve the mystery, »

'Trash': Rome Review

18 October 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The film may be set in the lively, and sometimes deadly, favelas of Rio de Janeiro, but the story couldn’t be more Hollywood than in Trash, director Stephen Daldry’s Brazilian crowdpleaser about three penniless teenage boys who battle corruption in their own crafty ways. Filled with numerous plot twists, street chases and upbeat vibes that will conquer the hearts of Western viewers seeking a safe foray into Third World territory – and one for which they’re accompanied by the do-gooding Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara – this energetic cross-cultural affair resolves local issues in a manner that only

‘Trash’ World Preems in Rio to Applause, Gleeful Laughter

9 October 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rio De Janeiro — Stephen Daldry’s Rio-set, young-adult thriller “Trash” — a groundbreaking movie in concept, financing and distribution — world premiered Tuesday night at the swish Cinepolis Lagoon in Rio de Janeiro to large applause.

There was also gleeful local appreciation of Daldry’s swings, from a Richard Curtis screenplay, at Brazil’s corruption-sodden elite, the police, its religious powers, even a Brazilian soccer association.

Such appreciation matters. Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner and Kris Thykier at Peapie Productions produced “Trash,” in association with Fernando Meirelles’ Sao Paulo-based O2 Filmes in Brazil. Distributed by Universal Pictures Intl., it adapts a novel by Brit Andy Mulligan. Martin Sheen – as the tippling world-weary Father Julliard – and Rooney Mara – Olivia, a learning-the-ropes Ngo worker – co-star.

All that said, “Trash” weighs in as maybe the first film from a major U.K. director – helmer of “Billy Elliot,” “The Hours,” “The Reader,” “Extremely Loud, »

Stephen Daldry's 'Trash' applauded at Rio Film Festival for its non-Brazilian Brazilianness

8 October 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Are we ready for the "Brazilian answer to 'Slumdog Millionaire?'" Rio Film Festival audiences quickly granted "Trash," the latest from "The Hours" director Stephen Daldry, that label after the the film pleased crowds with comedy, child wonder, and "offshore" energy (as trades love to refer to it). Polling attendees after the film's applause-filled premiere, a Variety reporter found many locals agreed that, despite "Trash" not being a true Brazilian movie, "it is not non-Brazilian in the best sense." Many praised it for being more entertaining than most "favela" (or, Latin America slum) dramas. Whether Americans will ever see it is up in the air. Based on Andy Mulligan's young adult novel of the same name, "Trash" tells the story of three “dumpsite boys," who "make a living picking through the mountains of garbage on the outskirts of a large city." Their lives spiral out of control when »

Film Review: ‘Trash’

7 October 2014 7:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cleanly scripted in pure Hollywood fashion by Richard Curtis (with Felipe Braga translating it into Portuguese), Stephen Daldry’s “Trash” won’t be confused for a real Brazilian production: Its storyline, staging and inevitably positive spin unmistakably mark it as offshore, notwithstanding the participation of Fernando Meirelles’ 02 Filmes. A South American answer of sorts to “Slumdog Millionaire,” the pic features a trio of charismatic kids living next to a Rio garbage dump who stumble upon evidence certain to bring down a corrupt politico. Audience-friendly to a fault, “Trash” should be a modest money earner for Universal Intl., which will no doubt pitch it along “Slumdog” lines.

Andy Mulligan’s source novel was geared toward adolescents, but the film feels like more adult fare simply because young teens aren’t exactly known for their attraction to subtitles. English makes up a small percentage of the dialogue, mostly coming from Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara, »

7 October 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Having been in the spotlight pretty much as long as we can remember, you may think you know everything there is to know about Emma Watson.

'Gone Girl' weekend box office: Biggest David Fincher opening weekend ever? (Photo: David Fincher directs Ben Affleck in 'Gone Girl') Directed by David Fincher, Gone Girl is expected to top the North American box office this weekend, October 3-5, 2014, while boasting Fincher's biggest domestic opening ever. Or maybe not — if the demonic doll Annabelle has her say and if one takes into account one pesky but, would you believe it, quite important detail. More on that further below. The $61 million-budgeted mystery thriller Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck — not to be confused with the mystery thriller Gone Baby Gone, directed by Ben Affleck — collected a healthy $1.25 million from Thursday night screenings at 2,370 sites. For comparison's sake: the Tom Hanks PG-13-rated sociopolitical thriller Captain Phillips debuted with $600,000 on Thursday night in early October 2013, eventually grossing $25.71 million on its first weekend out. Now, unlike Captain Phillips, the R-rated Gone Girl is a "family movie, »
