Roland Emmerich’s ‘Stonewall’ Sells To Warner Bros Germany In 1st Major Deal

29 September 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Roland Emmerich’s independently-produced drama Stonewall has made its first big international sale. Warner Bros Germany has acquired the just-wrapped film in Emmerich’s native country. The Jon Robin Baitz-scripted drama tells the story of a young man’s political awakening set against the backdrop of the 1969 police raid at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, a mafia-owned bar that became the flashpoint for the gay rights movement. Jeremy Irvine, Jonny Beauchamp, Caleb Landry Jones, Joey King, Matt Craven, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman and up-and-comers Karl Glusman, Vlademir Alexis, and Alexandre Nachi star. Of the sale, Emmerich says, “Telling the story of the Stonewall riots has long been a great passion of mine. I couldn’t be more thrilled that Warner Bros will be releasing the film in Germany. I first worked with Warner Bros 25 years ago on Moon 44, and I’m looking forward to working very closely with them again. »

Millennium Entertainment Closes $40M Credit Facilities As Ramp-Up Continues

24 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Millennium Entertainment is continuing to make moves following its deal to become a stand-alone distribution and catalog company. Today CEO Bill Lee unveiled that the soon-to-be-renamed outfit has closed a senior revolving credit facility and term loan facility worth $40 million.

The facilities helped finance Millennium and Virgo Investment Group’s August buyout of previous owners including Avi Lerner’s Nu Image, and will help Millennium going forward to acquire films for the studio’s upcoming slate. (The credit facilities provides for a $20 million term loan as well as a $20 million revolving line of credit with an additional accordion feature for future opportunities.)

Among those projects in Millennium’s pipeline is Madam Bovary, the Sophie Barthes-directed film that stars Mia Wasikowska, Paul Giamatti, and Ezra Miller. The company scooped up U.S. rights in a seven-figure deal sealed just before the period pic’s Toronto premiere earlier this month. Another »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Reach’

12 September 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Judging by Michael Douglas’ presence as producer and star, “The Reach” must have been some sort of passion project for the aging Hollywood icon. Well, as Pascal observed, the heart has its reasons — which, in Douglas’ case, remain impenetrable at the end of “The Reach,” for upwards of 90 minutes, while the audience looks on in quiet disbelief. A hopelessly misguided mashup of Cornel Wilde’s 1955 cult favorite “The Naked Prey” and “The Most Dangerous Game,” with Douglas playing a mutant hybrid of Gordon Gekko and the Glenn Close character from “Fatal Attraction,” this inauspicious English-language debut for promising French helmer Jean-Baptiste Leonetti doesn’t look to reach far from its Toronto premiere (where Lionsgate paid a surprising $2 million for the U.S. rights).

If there were a festival prize for most Chekovoian use of a handgun, it would surely go to “The Reach” for the early scene in which small-town »

Jeremy Irvine Talks The Reach, Roland Emmerich’s Stonewall, Fallen, The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death, and Mary Shelley’S Monster

10 September 2014 8:20 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A few days ago at the Toronto International Film Festival, I landed an exclusive video interview with Jeremy Irvine for his new cat-and-mouse thriller The Reach.  Directed by Jean-Baptiste Leonetti (Carré Blanc), the film features Michael Douglas as a wealthy businessman determined to kill big game in the Mojave Desert.  To help accomplish his goal, he hires a local guide (played by Irvine), but after a  tragic accident they quickly become adversaries, and the rest of the film is about which person will survive. During the interview Jeremy Irvine talked about working with Douglas, the physically challenging shoot, the story, watching it for the first time with an audience, and more.  In addition, he also talked about shooting Roland Emmerich's Stonewall (about the gay rights movement), his process as an actor, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, Fallen, Mary Shelley's Monster with Sophie Turner, and a lot more. »

Michael Douglas on Bad Guys, Stage Fright, and Ant-Man

10 September 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Michael Douglas was up at the Toronto Film Festival this week touting The Reach, where he stars as an avaricious big-game hunter who commits an accidental murder in the desert, then chases the innocent tracker (Jeremy Irvine) who happens to witness it. Douglas has played a lot of villains over the course of his career, but his Reach baddie is perhaps the most cut-and-dry of any of them, an out-and-out monster who drives an ultra-jacked SUV, barks evil orders into a satellite phone, and screams at our poor hero, "Why don't you just Die!" What made Douglas go so far to the dark side? He sat down with Vulture a few days ago to explain, as well as to chat about his next project, the Marvel movie Ant-Man.At the premiere, you said you took this archvillain role because, "Culturally, we're back to good guys and bad guys."

The Reach Review | Tiff 2014

9 September 2014 5:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I like the premise of humans hunting other humans for sport because it’s delightfully ludicrous and perversely entertaining.  It’s a lean, direct concept that removes the frills to become a battle of wits between the hunter and “the most dangerous game”.  For the majority of its runtime, Jean-Baptiste Léonetti’s The Reach sits comfortably inside this framework.  The story takes the occasional shortcut, but it also works in some subtext about economic inequality, which is a nice touch.  However, as the movie starts winding down, I realized I was perhaps giving Léonetti too much credit as The Reach crashes and burns in spectacular fashion. Ben (Jeremy Irvine) is bummed about his girlfriend (Hanna Mangan Lawrence) leaving to go to college, but he doesn’t have much time to dwell on it as he’s recruited by the local sheriff (Ronny Cox) to be a guide for wealthy asshole »

Michael Douglas Thriller The Reach Lands Distribution Deal

9 September 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It takes a lot these days to create a movie thriller that is somewhat original and fresh. There are so many well-worn set-ups that every so often, we need something slightly unusual to shake the genre up a bit. That may be what we have to look forward to with The Reach, which made an appearance at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival and is now sealing a $2 million deal for the Us distribution rights.

The film stars Michael Douglas as Madec – a high-profile corporate lawyer whose intimidating skill in the courtroom is matched by his cold precision as a hunter. Obtaining a rare permit to spend seven days hunting big game in the Mojave Desert, Madec hires the quiet, conservative young Ben (Jeremy Irvine) as a guide, but finds his retreat takes a turn for the darker when he accidentally shoots an innocent man and realizes Ben won’t be helping him cover it up. »

Review: The Reach (Tiff 2014)

Plot: A young guide (Jeremy Irvine) finds himself stalked in the Mohave desert by a rich hunter (Michael Douglas) after the two are involved in an accidental shooting. Review: The Reach could – and should – have been a great little thriller. With a class warfare theme that finds an impoverished youth being hunted by a wealthy one percenter in the most rugged landscape you can imagine, this could have a been a strong piece of entertainment with some really ingenious »

Toronto: Lionsgate/Roadside Land Michael Douglas Thriller ‘The Reach’ For $2 Million

7 September 2014 9:36 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions are closing a deal around $2 million for U.S. rights for The Reach, the Jean-Baptiste Leonetti-directed thriller that stars Michael Douglas as an arrogant businessman/big game hunter who pursues a trophy and accidentally kills an innocent man. Jeremy Irvine plays the young guide who took him into the vast expanses of the Mojave desert. When the guide refuses to conspire in a cover-up, it becomes a mano a mano fight to the death as the hunter attempts to cover his tracks. Stephen Susco wrote the script and Douglas produced the tight thriller with Robert Mitas. Wme Global is brokering the deal that calls for the kind of day and date release that Lionsgate and Roadside executed so well on the films Arbitrage and Margin Call. The Reach plays in the Special Presentations section here at Toronto.

Toronto Hot Film Acquisition Titles: Will Seller’s Market Continue Into Fall?

5 September 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

If the acquisitions frenzy and precedent-setting deals struck in Berlin and Cannes is going to continue, it will surprise many of the sellers who’ve come to the Toronto Film Festival to fill slots in their 2015 slates. Maybe it’s because there were so many spectacular deals this year, of perhaps it’s because Toronto 2014 is so stocked with studio films that star the likes of Robert Downey Jr, Bill Murray and Denzel Washington. Whatever the reason, acquisition titles seem to be lower key than last year, when Can A Song Save Your Life and Bad Words prompted overnight auctions and $7 million deals, and just about every movie that played here found distribution.

The deal action got underway yesterday and today with Relativity’s acquisition of The Woman In Black 2 and Saban Entertainment’s deal for fest title Tracers. All the ingredients for a continued buying surge seem to be there, »

Relativity Snaps Up Eel Marsh House & The Woman In Black 2 For Us Release

5 September 2014 6:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hammer Films’ gothic scarefest The Woman in Black was an undeniable hit back in 2012. The big screen adaptation of Susan Hill’s eerie novel pulled in close to $130 million at the international box office and managed to strike a chord with its native audience in the UK. Moreover, it comfortably shepherded Daniel Radcliffe away from the shackles of a certain boy wizard and allowed him to stretch his acting muscles as a competent leading man. (The latter point is debatable, but we digress.)

That said, the young British actor won’t feature in the upcoming sequel, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, which is to be distributed by Relativity Media in North America following a recent deal penned during the Toronto International Film Festival. According to Deadline, the partnership between the studios is said to be north of seven-figures.

In Radcliffe’s stead, the horror sequel will star War Horse »
