Peter Chelsom to Direct Adaptation of ‘The Mirror Thief’

22 July 2016 4:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Space Between Us” helmer Peter Chelsom is attached to write and direct and adaptation of “The Mirror Thief,” sources confirmed to Variety.

Tinker Lindsay, who also wrote “The Space Between Us” with Chelsom, will co-write the script with him.

Based on the recent Martin Seay novel, the story follows the interweaving narratives of three driven men all connected by a mysterious book. The setting shifts from 16th century Venice, Italy— where famed glassmakers perfected one of the world’s most wondrous inventions, the mirror (an object of fearful fascination) — to the seedy Venice Beach waterfront of the 1950s, to the glitzy trappings of the Venetian casino in 2003 Las Vegas.

John Albanis, who optioned the rights to the book, will produce. No distributor or financier is attached at this time.

The Space Between Us” will bow this December and also stars Asa Butterfield and Gary Oldman. Chelsom’s previous films include “Town and Country, »

STX Entertainment Still Looking to Make Its Mark After ‘Free State of Jones’ Flops

27 June 2016 4:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Things didn’t go as planned with “Free State of Jones.”

The $50 million Civil War drama, greenlit two years ago by STX Entertainment, was meant to announce the indie studio as a bright new player bent on producing quality movies for adults with top talent. But, despite the presence of star Matthew McConaughey and director Gary Ross, and an extensive advertising push, “Free State of Jones” collapsed at the domestic box office this past weekend, eking out less than $8 million in its debut and raising more questions about STX’s business model.

Stx got into the business precisely because it believes that there’s still an audience for the kind of projects major studios abandoned in favor of superhero adventures and tween franchises.  The film, announced shortly after Stx was launched in 2014 by Robert Simonds and Tpg managing director Bill McGlashan, was handed a prime summer release date.

'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' trailer washes away the original love interest

20 June 2016 10:20 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was a peculiar book. Utilizing forced perspective and other spooky vintage photos as the backbone, author Ransom Riggs created a unique Ya picture book. Spending 63 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list, it was inevitable the book would be snapped up by a film studio. It was also inevitable that changes would be made, as Miss Peregrine’s spends a significant chunk of the novel exploring and explaining the world of Peculiars. Great reading. Not so great watching. The latest trailer shows just how far the film is straying from the source material. Any suspicions that Olive was aged up to replace Emma as Jacob’s (Asa Butterfield) love interest seems confirmed*. *Update: The air-bending character is still Emma, but her powers have been swapped with Olive's (who is Still aged up for some reason), as per author Ransom Riggs.

20 June 2016 7:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Director Tim Burton has long trafficked in stories about mysterious outsiders who have strange abilities that lead them to great (and often pretty scary) things, all in service to some major cinematic achievements. From “Edward Scissorhands” to “Frankenweenie” to “Big Fish” and everything in between, weird and imaginative stories and characters are Burton’s bag, and his latest offering, a big screen take on the popular Ya “Miss Peregrine’s” series from author Ransom Riggs, fits that bill perfectly.
