Buried Director Rodrigo Cortés Will Go Down A Dark Hall For Lionsgate

30 July 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After making an auspicous debut with the claustrophobic Ryan Reynolds thriller Buried, Rodrigo Cortés delivered a wholly disappointing follow-up in the form of Red Lights, a weak alien invasion pic that completely fell apart in its final act. Here’s hoping that the director’s next effort gets him back in our good graces – Lionsgate announced today that it has set Cortés to helm Down a Dark Hall, based on the 1974 Ya novel from I Know What You Did Last Summer author Lois Duncan.

The book, which was initially scripted by Michael Goldbach and is now getting a rewrite by Chris Sparling, is Duncan’s only supernatural thriller. It follows a girl named Kit, who begins to attend the exclusive Blackwood Boarding School but is immediately disturbed by a sense of evil that pervades the place. Quickly, she gets drawn into the supernatural happenings inside Blackwood as she is exposed »

20 June 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Robert Pattinson has been tough to miss ever since breaking out in 2008's "Twilight" as a hunky vampire.

The film catapulted Pattinson to international success seemingly overnight, and after four more "Twilight" films and millions of dollars in the bank, the actor is looking to shake that role. Pattinson has, however, proved his acting chops in indies like "Cosmopolis" and can be seen in the critically-acclaimed thriller "The Rover" opposite Guy Pearce this summer.

From his surprising karaoke partner to his connection with an asteroid, here are 23 things you probably don't know about Robert Pattinson.

1. Pattinson was born May 13, 1986 in London, England to Clare and Richard Pattinson.

Who is John Green? A crash course on The Fault in Our Stars author

17 June 2014 4:51 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Fault in Our Stars is the latest Young Adult fiction book to find success on the big screen, but there's something distinctly different about this box office smash. Firstly, it doesn't have a fantasy/sc-fi hook like Twilight, The Hunger Games or Divergent, and secondly its author is a man.

In a genre dominated by Jk Rowling, Stephenie Meyer and Suzanne Collins, Tfios scribe John sticks out like a teenager strolling around with an unlit cigarette. Who is this latest literary sensation? We deliver all you need to know about John Green below...

The Fault in Our Stars was inspired by Green's time as a student chaplain...

Before he became a best-selling author, Green had intended to become an Episcopal priest and spent five months as a student chaplain at a children's hospital. It was there he met children suffering from terminal illnesses and decided to become an author instead. »

Cannes: Robert Pattinson vs. Kristen Stewart in Battle of ‘Twilight’ Stars

14 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ever since the lineup of the Cannes Film Festival was announced last month, gossip sites have been salivating over an unlikely scenario: a red carpet run-in between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. The “Twilight” co-stars and former off-screen couple both will be in attendance, although they likely won’t be posing for photographs together.

Pattinson arrives on the Croisette with a pair of anticipated films: the Hollywood-set drama “Maps to the Stars,” a competition title from his “Cosmopolis” director David Cronenberg; and “The Rover,” a midnight-screening thriller set in a futuristic Australian Outback, and helmed by “Animal Kingdom’s” David Michod.

Stewart appears as a supporting character in the Olivier Assayas drama “Clouds of Sils Maria” (playing in competition); has a market screening of “Camp X-Ray,” about a guard at Guantanamo Bay who strikes an unexpected friendship with a prisoner; and is attached to the project “Equals,” a sci-fi love »

Does making fun of Twilight ever get old? Find out for yourself with a new clip from the fine folks at Bad Lip Reading, spoofing the dreadful Twilight saga. There’s an entire series, which we spotted at Geekologie and included for you here, in case you’re feeling extra masochistic today. “I don’t like your face,” says earnest Twilight dad. “You’ve got horrible zoo hands,” a pouty Bella replies. “And you have the record for frowning,” dad retorts. At least Bad Lip Reading is accurate.

25 April 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Stephenie Meyer, famed author of both the "Twilight" franchise and "The Host," has recently broken into the movie business with her production company, Fickle Fish Films.

Fickle Fish is gearing up to help another young adult author, Mindy McGinnis, bring her story to the big screen. Mindy's debut book, "Not a Drop to Drink," landed on shelves last year, and we can't wait to see it brought to life!
