New Screenwriter For Chaos Walking

20 August 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

News about Lionsgate's Young Adult adaptation Chaos Walking is currently arriving in annual instalments. In mid-2012 we learned that Charlie Kaufman was writing the screenplay, and last September came word that Robert Zemeckis was aboard to direct. This year's update is that Kaufman's work has, perhaps unsurprisingly, been deemed not quite the ticket for a would-be franchise (we can only imagine what the writer of Adaptation and Synecdoche, New York did with the material). The latest scribe to take a crack at Patrick Ness' novel will be Jamie Linden.Ness’ trilogy – The Knife Of Never Letting Go, The Ask And The Answer and Monsters Of Men – finds humankind in a dystopian future, colonising a distant planet after the Earth has been ruined. When an infection called the Noise strikes, all thoughts become audible and chaos follows.A corrupt autocrat takes the chance to seize control of the human settlements »

Anthony Mackie To Produce And Star In A Jessie Owens Biopic

31 May 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Anthony Mackie is a busy man, but apparently he's not busy enough. With some spare time in-between Marvel movies like Captain America: The Winter Soldier and his upcoming project with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen, he's lined himself up to be in two different biopics. The first is Jimi, one of two upcoming biopics about famed guitarist Jimi Hendrix. The second, more recent project, is one that Mackie himself is developing and presenting to studios and will have him starring as famed Olympian Jessie Owens. While the project doesn't have a title as of yet, it does have two other films to compete with, and proves to be a golden opportunity for whomever gets it right. Deadline ran the story about how Anthony Mackie is teaming with writer Jamie Linden (who shares the film We Are Marshall as a common link between himself and Mackie) to co-produce a film from »

Anthony Mackie Set To Play Olympic Great Jesse Owens

29 May 2014 4:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In 1936, at the height of Adolf Hitler’s reign in Germany, the Olympics were somehow hosted in Berlin. Just in case you aren’t familiar with the situation, Hitler had this belief in a master Aryan Race. He thought fair-skinned, blonde-haired humans were superior in every single way. So it must’ve come as quite a shock to watch that belief be dashed to pieces in his own backyard as a black American, Jesse Owens, completely dominated the blondes and everyone else who was on the track by winning an outstanding four gold medals.

Owens’ performance is regarded as one of the best stories track and field has to offer, and rightfully so. It’s actually quite surprising that there haven’t been more films made about that summer in ’36. Thankfully, that’s all about to change. Disney has a project in the works about Owens (based on Jeremy Schaap »
