Can U.K. Keep Up With Demand Due to Amped-Up Incentives?

15 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As Hollywood struggles to keep a leash on runaway production, recent tweaks to already robust U.K. film and TV tax incentives have created a boom in Blighty.

“We have an unprecedented amount

of inquiries we are dealing with,” says Adrian Wootton, chief executive of production and promotional agencies the British Film Commission and Film London.

From 2012 to 2013, movie production spending rose 7.5% to $1.81 billion, according to numbers from the British Film Institute, with 81% of the total U.K. production spending coming from films financed from outside the U.K. — mostly from the U.S. studios. These pics contributed $1.46 billion, an increase of 28% on 2012. The first half of 2014 saw U.K. spending on all films hit $1.3 billion, the highest since the first half of 2011, according to the BFI.

The boom can be traced to Britain’s attractive tax credit, which got sexier in 2013: It improved the rate of relief for larger budget pics, »

Jerry McNeely, Emmy-nominated television writer and creator of series including “Owen Marshall, Counselor at Law,” died Monday in Tarzana, Calif. He was 86 and had suffered from Parkinson’s Disease for several years.

'Doctor Strange' Director Will Take Us to 'The Outer Limits'

20 June 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Doctor Strange" director Scott Derrickson will be taking a break from that blockbuster life to reunite with his "Sinister" collaborator C. Robert Cargill for some spooky sci-fi goodness in "The Outer Limits."

The dynamic duo will be taking a crack at adapting one episode of the creepy '60s TV series, "Demon With a Glass Hand" by Harlan Ellison. On the show, Robert Culp plays a man who wakes up with a crazy computerized hand and no memory of his life, aside from the past 10 days. There are aliens and time travel and all sorts of crazy stuff, and it sounds like Ellison's original vision for the story was much larger than what "The Outer Limits" could afford, so it will be cool to see how the filmmakers play with Ellison's screenplay.

Ellison, a fantastic (and fantastically prolific) author, wrote a ton of scripts for TV, with credits on "Star Trek, »

‘Paddington’ Shifts to Christmas Release, ‘Underdogs’ Decamps for 2015

10 June 2014 2:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paddington,” the lovable bear with a hankering for marmalade sandwiches, will try to win the hearts of Christmas moviegoers, The Weinstein Company said Tuesday.

The studio will shift its film adaptation of Michael Bonds’ children’s book classics from Dec. 12, 2014 to Christmas Day, historically one of the film business’ most important periods.

In addition, the studio is pushing back the release of the animated comedy “Underdogs” from Aug. 27, 2014 to Jan. 16, 2015. It also said it will release “The Coup,” a thriller with Pierce Brosnan and Owen Wilson, on March 6, 2015.

In its new slot, “Paddington” faces formidable competition from the likes of “Into the Woods,” the Tim Burton drama “Big Eyes” and Cameron Crowe’s next film. It also will square off against “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb” and “Annie,” both of which open on Dec. 19, 2014 and will appeal to families.

In its old position, the major films “Paddington »

Top 10 Favorite Film Robots

9 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Hollywood has introduced us to a ton of awesome robots over the years. Robots have always been extremely cool, and they've sparked the imagination of what is possible. The robots we've seen in the movies have inspired technology and science. There are engineers out there who have created robots of their own and are constantly trying to perfect them. One day those robots will take over the world and destroy us all.

We all have our favorite robots, and I thought I'd come up with a top 10 list of my personal favorites. Note: Cyborgs like RoboCop don't count as robots on this list. 

If you'd like to share your own favorites, please feel free to post them in the comments section below!

The Iron Giant is by far my favorite robot. He's the one I would have loved to play with as a kid. »

Review: "I Spy: The Complete Series" From Timeless Media

4 June 2014 3:55 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Timeless Media, which is affiliated with Shout! Factory, has released the classic 1960s TV series "I Spy" in a boxed set that contains all 82 episodes. Although Image Entertainment had released the series previously on DVD, this marks the first time the show is available in its entirety in one set. The show was one of many TV series that capitalized on the recent success of the James Bond films. Suddenly, TV and cinemas were playing spy-related fare virtually non-stop. NBC had some of the best elements of the spymania craze with "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.", Get Smart" and "I Spy". The latter series premiered in 1965 and ran three seasons through 1968. It presented Robert Culp as Kelly Robinson, who uses his status as an international tennis pro as a cover for his activities as a CIA agent. He is assisted by his good friend Alexander Scott (Bill Cosby), who ostensibly is his trainer, »

Emmy Creative Arts: TV Composers Bid Farewell to Personal Themes

3 June 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Remember when you’d watch “Lost in Space” and, whenever the Robot was making trouble, you’d hear John Williams’ lumbering musical motif? Or when Napoleon Solo would encounter a femme fatale on “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” and you’d inevitably hear the love theme?

That doesn’t happen much anymore. Composers still use themes for characters and situations, but they tend to be more subtle.

Game of Thrones” has themes for the Lannisters, the Starks and many subsidiary characters. But the series’ composer, Ramin Djawadi, says, “we didn’t want to overpower the listener, every time you see a different person and hear a different theme.”

It’s similar for Jeff Beal who prefers “storyline themes” in his music for “House of Cards”: “Those long story arcs have their own sound, their own musical expression,” he says.

'Green Acres' is the Place to Be with a Feature Film in Development

5 May 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though lately there haven't been as many revivals of 60s TV series on the big screen lately as there were years ago, Lost in Space, The Fugitive, Get Smart and Bewitched all hail from that decade, and coming up we've got new versions of Gilligan's Island and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in the works. Now another show from the 60s will hit the big screen as Deadline reports the CBS sitcom Green Acres has just been picked up by director Richard L. Bare for a feature film adaptation. Bare is one of the original directors of the TV series, and he's teaming up with Phillip Goldfine and his Hollywood Media Bridge to make it happen. The two producers are looking for a writer and director though, so the project is just in the nascent stages of development. You may know the Green Acres theme song better than the actual series, »

'Green Acres' Is Heading to the Big Screen

2 May 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nearly 50 years after it first debuted in 1965, the classic TV series Green Acres is being developed for a feature film and a Broadway play.

Richard L. Bare, who directed 166 of the show's 170 episodes, and Phillip B. Goldfine have acquired the rights to the series, and are seeking a writer and director for the feature adaptation. The producers are also developing a Broadway play based on the hit series.

Green Acres ran for six seasons between 1965 and 1971, starring Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor as a married New York couple who try their hand at farming in the Midwestern community of Hooterville. The show became well-known for its catchy, sing-along opening theme, one-liners and a host of colorful characters.

Richard L. Bare has been trying to revive the hit series for quite some time. Back in 2007, during the Writer's Guild of America strike, the filmmaker was shopping the original scripts to every »

Green Acres Movie Coming to the Big Screen and Possibly Broadway

2 May 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If the countryside and farm livin' is the life for you, then Green Acres is probably right up your alley.  You may or may not be happy to know that the 60s television series is now making its way to the big screen, with a possible Broadway adaptation on the way as well.  Property rights to the sitcom that featured a wealthy New York couple moving to the Midwest town of Hooterville were recently acquired by series helmer Richard L. Bare and producer Phillip Goldfine. Green Acres starred Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor as Oliver Wendell and Lisa Douglas, a Manhattan lawyer and his socialite wife respectively.  While the show's humor was derived from the misunderstandings between the well-to-do urbanites and the simple countryfolk, something tells me that approach might not go over so well in today's economic climate.  Hit the jump for more.
