Rooney Mara Circles Mary Magdalene Biopic; Pope Francis Makes Film Debut; Asghar Farhadi Resumes New Feature

2 February 2016 12:13 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Being that some of us hold Rooney Mara as the closest thing to a modern-day Christ, it’s only fitting that she’d end up playing one of His closest compatriots. Or so her Lion director, Garth Davis, is hoping will be the case when it comes to a new biopic — described as “an authentic and humanistic portrait of one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood spiritual figures in history” — handled by Universal and See-Saw Films. [Deadline]

Playwright Helen Edmundson and Philippa Goslett (Little Ashes) penned the screenplay; production will commence this summer and the film is expected to arrive in 2017.

Here’s another bit of news that will spark Christian interest: Pope Francis will soon stand as the first Pope to appear in a feature film — in this case, Beyond the Sun, “a family adventure based on the Gospels.” Ambi Pictures are financing and producing, while Graciela Rodriguez is helming »

High-Rise Director Ben Wheatley Eyes Female-Centric Cast For The Wages Of Fear

29 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In doing the press rounds for soon-to-be-released thriller High-Rise, prolific British filmmaker Ben Wheatley has already set sights on his next project, The Wages of Fear.

Less a remake of Henri-Georges Clouzot’s 1950s epic and more a reinterpretation of the seminal novel by Georges Arnaud, word of Wheatley’s new feature film comes by way of Empire, who spoke to the acclaimed director about his vision for The Wages of Fear.

Situated in the Cradle of Life, Wheatley revealed that he’s building the movie around a female-centric cast. In Arnaud’s original, the story centered on a group of resilient European men who, upon being hired by an American conglomerate, drive two trucks loaded with nitroglycerine cross-country in order to put out a fire – one that’s wreaking havoc on a precious Mexican oil well.

How exactly Wheatley plans to rework The Wages of Fear is still up for question, »

Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best (or most interesting) films one can take home.

The Look of Silence (Joshua Oppenheimer)

Calling Joshua Oppenheimer’s The Look of Silence the year’s finest documentary is not inaccurate; the film certainly deserves that crown. Yet it’s hard not to feel like such a classification does Silence a slight injustice. The film is, after all, an overwhelmingly emotional modern classic. Like Oppenheimer’s 2012 masterpiece The Act of Killing, this stunning follow-up features the actual perpetrators of the Indonesian killings of 1965–66. With shocking openness, these »
