Movies Aren’t Delicate Flowers, They Can Be Recut

19 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Last week, Steven Soderbergh offered his own cut of 2001: A Space Odyssey in a much more complete fashion than he did with either Raiders of the Lost Ark or Psycho. He didn’t merely provide a navel-gazing soundtrack to a black-and-whitified version of Indy so that everyone could focus in on how Spielberg staged his scenes, or combine the two Psychos together so that everyone could focus in on how much cooler Anthony Perkins is than Vince Vaughn. Soderbergh’s cut of 2001 is the product of a complete vision for the movie (in as much as it can be without shooting new scenes or having access to any footage that didn’t make Kubrick’s cut). If aliens learn about human civilization through the internet, and they find this video without the accompanying text, they’ll think that it’s the “real” 2001. They’ll also wonder why our space program has moved backward in the past »

Ben Affleck and David Fincher Sign on to Remake Hitchcock's 'Strangers'

14 January 2015 2:00 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The Gone Girl team of director David Fincher, screenwriter Gillian Flynn and actor Ben Affleck have already set their sights on their next project: Strangers, a modern take on Alfred Hitchcock's 1951 suspense classic Strangers on a Train, according to Deadline.

In the Hitchcock original, the plot revolves a murder pact between a tennis star (played by Farley Granger) and the titular stranger on a train (portrayed by Robert Walker). Aboard, they devise a plan to kill the source of each other's problems – the tennis star's ex-wife, the stranger's father »

Ben Affleck And David Fincher To Reunite For Strangers On A Train Remake

14 January 2015 11:10 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

It seems Ben Affleck and director David Fincher hit it off during the making of Gone Girl, as the two are expected to team up for a remake of the Alfred Hitchcock classic Strangers on a Train, the first remake of the great man's work since 1998's Psycho. According to Deadline, Gone Girl author and screen writer Gillian Flynn is also on board for the remake, which will possibly just be called Strangers. In the original, tennis pro Guy Haines meets the charming, yet psychotic, Bruno on a train, which sets in motion a plan to pull off the perfect crime, with both strangers tasked with murdering the other's respective thorn in their side. This modernised version would take on slightly meta aspect, with Affleck as an actor in the middle of an Oscar campaign who accepts a ride on a wealthy stranger's private jet after his own plane breaks down. »

David Fincher linked with Alfred Hitchcock film remake

13 January 2015 10:26 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Gone Girl team of Ben Affleck, David Fincher and Gillian Flynn may be taking on Strangers On A Train...

The films of Alfred Hitchcock still provide rich pickings for modern filmmakers, in spite of the fact that the last full-on remake was Gus Van Sant's ill-advised take on Psycho. Thus, Michael Douglas vehicle A Perfect Murder went back to the Dial M For Murder source material, whilst the Shia Labeouf-headlined Disturbia was inspired by the wonderful Rear Window.

Next up then? It might just be Strangers On A Train. Warner Bros is trying to get a remake of the 1951 original together, and it's recruiting the team behind Gone Girl to do it. Thus, the studio wants novelist and screenwriter Gillian Flynn, star Ben Affleck and director David Fincher to take the job on.

The new version will be modernised (taking place in the middle of an Oscar campaign, »

'Bates Motel' and 'The Returned' premiere dates confirmed

9 January 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Starting in March, A&E has set up a Monday night of Carlton Cuse-produced spins on genre favorites. A&E announced on Friday (January 9) morning that "Bates Motel" will return for its third season on Monday, March 9 at 9 p.m. "Bates Motel" will be followed by the first season of A&E's remake of "The Returned," which A&E hopes will do better than last spring's short-lived "Bates" lead-out "Those That Kill." "Bates Motel" is, of course, a semi-prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho," while "The Returned" is a very literal English-language take on SundanceTV's acclaimed French zombie-kinda drama "Les Revenants." While both dramas feature "Lost" veteran Carlton Cuse as executive producer, it's worth noting that Raelle Tucker ("True Blood") is running the show on "The Returned," while Kerry Ehrin is steering "Bates Motel."  The "Returned" ensemble includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Mark Pellegrino, Jeremy Sisto, India Ennenga, Sophie Lowe, »

‘Keep on Keepin’ On’ Could Join 17 Music-Related Oscar-Nommed Docs

8 January 2015 8:52 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Keep on Keepin’ On, director Alan Hicks’ debut film, follows four years of the friendship and mentorship between jazz legend and trumpeter Clark Terry, who played with Count Basie and Duke Ellington and taught a young Quincy Jones how to play, and Justin Kauflin, a talented 23-year-old blind pianist. The two musicians support each other as Terry begins to lose his eyesight due to health issues and as Kauflin deals with stage fright as a semi-finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition. The film is one of 15 films on the Oscar documentary shortlist, five of which will be nominated on Jan. 15.

The Academy is particularly fond of music-related documentaries, nominating 17 since 1942, with eight winning. Keep on Keepin’ On could join the following Oscar-nominated films:

OscarWrap: Rosamund Pike and a Part to Die For in David Fincher’s ‘Gone Girl’

2 January 2015 10:07 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It’s 10 p.m. in London, and Rosamund Pike has just roasted a chicken, finished the washing up, folded the laundry and tended to a wee sick one. Now she sits for a moment in her kitchen, spent but happy, her four-day-old baby son snoozing in his basket beside her.

The setting may be calm and pastoral, in keeping with Pike’s new life, but it’s sharply at odds with the actor we now know her to be. This year she delivered a career-making performance as Amy Dunne, the stunningly beautiful, dangerously secretive and cynically vicious wife in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl, »
