Jungle Cruise: Dwayne Johnson Wants Wonder Woman Helmer Patty Jenkins To Direct Film

27 April 2017 3:49 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Jungle Cruise isn’t really a film anyone asked for. If you had gone up to anyone on the street and asked them what property they’d like to see hit the big screen, they’d name a myriad of things, but Jungle Cruise wouldn’t be one of them. Heck, if you had asked them which Disney ride they’d like to see as a film, you probably wouldn’t have gotten them to say Jungle Cruise.

That being said, none of us really asked for a Pirates of the Caribbean film either, and we all know that turned out to be one of the biggest franchises of all time. Plus, Jungle Cruise has the help of having Dwayne Johnson spearheading the project. Johnson has made a name for himself in the business as being one of the biggest names in Hollywood and 2016’s highest grossing actor, which is »

The Rock Will Shoot Disney's Jungle Cruise in 2018

8 April 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Roughly a year and a half after Dwayne Johnson signed on to star in Disney's Jungle Cruise, the studio has finally given the green light to the project. Production is now slated to begin in the spring of 2018, with the studio beginning its search for a director to take over the project. Dwayne Johnson will also produce through his Seven Bucks Productions company, alongside Dany Garcia. The actor-producer took to his Instagram page earlier today to confirm the news, with the following statement.

"This is a big one we've been working on. Very excited to roll up the sleeves and work on building out this huge property with our Disney partners. This #JungleCruise script was hand delivered to me personally (on the set of Ballers) by my good bud and Walt Disney's President of Production, Sean Bailey. Read the script twice that weekend and Loved It! Thank God, the script »

‘Five Came Back’: How the Story of Hollywood Directors In World War II Became a Great Netflix Series

2 April 2017 11:26 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Entertainment journalist Mark Harris followed up his well-reviewed 2009 “Pictures at a Revolution” with an even better and more accessible book, the dramatic story of five top Hollywood directors and their roles in producing WWII propaganda films, told over 500 pages: “Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War. The first book was doomed not to become a movie due to prohibitive clip costs. But the urge to open up Harris’s exhaustive research on “Five Came Back” via dramatic documentary shorts shot in the global arena was irresistible — and they were free.

Rangoon review – Bollywood goes to war with epic that ably bridges east and west

24 February 2017 2:52 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Kangana Ranaut, Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor star in an African Queen-ish love triangle yarn set against the second world war campaign in southeast Asia

In this time of pronounced division, it’s reassuring to know east and west can still play nicely together. Vishal Bhardwaj, the director of several impressive Shakespeare-goes-Hindi adaptations (Maqbool, Omkara), here teams with sometime Spielberg screenwriter Matthew Robbins for a sweeping second world war epic that (ironically) describes a collision of worlds: on one side of the widescreen frame is showbusiness, on the other the theatre of war. This being Bollywood, the centre is occupied by a love triangle enacted by more characterful types than those Pearl Harbor excavated: a spoilt silver-screen goddess (Kangana Ranaut) drafted to entertain British Indian army troops in Burma, the suave yet possessive one-armed impresario accompanying her (Saif Ali Khan) and the no-nonsense soldier boy (Shahid Kapoor) left »

'The African Queen': THR's 1951 Review

20 February 2017 8:26 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On Feb. 20, 1952, The African Queen opened at the Capitol Theatre in New York. The sweeping drama was nominated for four Oscars at the 24th Academy Awards, claiming a win for Humphrey Bogart as best actor. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below.

As charming as the C.S. Forester novel on which it is based, The African Queen is top flight entertainment, delightful, different, always interesting. It is filled with excitement and adventure and sparked by superlative performances from Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart.

Filmed in Africa by S.P. Eagle, the production is a stunning pictorial »

Blu-ray Review: The Asphalt Jungle Is Near Perfect

25 January 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

John Huston was one of the greatest mid-century (or ever) American directors. He directed The Maltese FalconThe African QueenKey LargoPrizzi's HonorThe Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Annie, and The Misfits, among others. Huston had previously been an opera singer, and enjoyed a healthy acting career as well when he choose to venture to the other side of the camera, with stints in ChinatownBattle for the Planet of the ApesWise Blood, and voice overs and narration for animated films such as The Black Cauldron and The Return of the King. And of course, he fathered actors Anjelica and Danny Huston. Today, we're going to delve into the Criterion Collection's recent blu-ray release of one of Huston's finest noirs, The Asphalt Jungle. Starring the manly Sterling Hayden, Jean Hagen (so good here), Louis...

The Asphalt Jungle, Loophole and More: Jim Hemphill’s Home Video Recommendations

15 January 2017 12:11 PM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Nearly 30 years after his death, writer-director John Huston remains, in my estimation, a slightly underrated figure in the landscape of American cinema. This may seem like a perverse statement given his multiple Academy Award nominations (including two wins) and the fact that several of his films (The Maltese Falcon, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, The African Queen, etc.) are widely acknowledged classics, but Huston is even better — far better, in fact — than his reputation suggests. His is a career of astonishing variety and endless probing, one that includes not only multiple jewels of classical Hollywood narrative […] »
