Classic film books: Adventures In The Screen Trade by William Goldman

18 November 2015 9:59 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




This month's classic film book is William Goldman's entertaining screenwriting memoir, offering untold insight into the movie business...

You get the feeling, when you read Adventures In The Screen Trade, that the author (and the incredibly successful screenwriter) William Goldman is all about structure.

He has brought clarity and meaning to films such as All The President's MenA Bridge Too FarMarathon Man, and Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid. In life, he has approached these projects with a well-planned method, and the determination to see them through to completion. And in writing this book about those screenplays he has given us one of the most ordered and understandable books ever written about how screenplays work. He claims structure is everything; well, he proves it here.

It's a beautifully laid out book that is arranged into three equally enjoyable sections. Section One gives you an »

William Goldman Brings the Pain to the Stage With a Broadway Adaptation of Misery

4 November 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

“Screenwriting is shitwork,” William Goldman wrote in his 1983 industry bible Adventures in the Screen Trade, source of both the famous dictum “Nobody knows anything” and the popular notion that writers are Hollywood’s janitors. At 84, he’s the exception that proves both rules: the business’s greatest living screenwriter and its savviest truth-teller, a man whom stars treat with a deference he doesn’t always reciprocate. Bruce Willis is one of those stars. On a recent evening in a midtown rehearsal studio, the actor has just finished a run-through of Misery on Broadway. Goldman wrote the 1990 film version of Stephen King’s novel about an author and his No. 1 fan — a minor highlight for the writer of The Princess Bride, All the President’s Men, and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The stage adaptation is Goldman’s first produced script since Dreamcatcher a dozen years ago and his first »

Oscar cliffhanger: Will Robert Redford finally win for acting with 'Truth'?

14 October 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Despite headlining such iconic films as “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” (1969), “The Way We Were” (1973) and “All the President’s Men” (1976), Robert Redford has been nominated just once at the Oscars for acting with his starring role as a conman in the 1973 Best Picture winner "The Sting"; he lost to Jack Lemmon ("Save the Tiger"). He could right that Oscar wrong this year with his portrayal of Dan Rather in "Truth," a look inside the controversial “60 Minutes” segment that eventually led to the resignation of the CBS news anchor.  -Break- Dish the Oscars with Hollywood insiders in our red-hot forums Redford did win an Oscar for directing the 1980 Best Picture champ "Ordinary People." That domestic drama also won Supporting Actor (Timothy Hutton), and Adapted Screenplay (Alvin Sargent). And he picked up two bids in 1994 for directing and produ »

Watch: 8-Minute Video Essay Explains How "Oh F*ck" Film Moments Are Created Through Editing

30 September 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Editing is an art that goes unnoticed by the filmgoing masses. No matter how great the components of a movie may be, ultimately bad editing has the power to make or break it. Yet good editing usually means that no one even notices the cuts. Which brings us to what RocketJump Film School calls the “oh f**k” moment in its new video essay “Editing: Creating The ‘Oh F**k’ Moment.” The “oh f**k” moment is a moment in a scene built by alternately using wide and close-up shots and in which the audience is finally allowed to see the source of the tension. The video argues that it’s this back and forth editing between the wide and the close-up that is used to propel the story and which creates an extra layer of tension that might not otherwise exist. Likely the best example would be the introduction »

The Legacy | Blu-Ray Review

29 September 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

You may not directly recall the name of director Richard Marquand, though in many ways he’s a notable director from the 1980s thanks to items like the pulpy Glenn Close courtroom drama Jagged Edge (1985), and a Ken Follett adaptation Eye of the Needle (1981). Oh, and he happened to helm Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi in 1983. The British director died of a stroke at the age of forty nine, which explains the abrupt end of a flourishing filmography. He made the jump from documentary and television series to feature with the forgotten 1978 British horror film The Legacy, which starred notable American stars (and real life couple) Katharine Ross and Sam Elliott. Based on a story by Jimmy Sangster, a writer of many Hammer Studio films, the screenplay was also co-written by Patrick Tilley (his last credit) and Paul Wheeler (who would exclusively work in television afterwards).

A Walk in the Woods review: Robert Redford's pleasant ramble through Bill Bryson's book

18 September 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Perhaps not surprisingly for a man of advanced years, Robert Redford takes a leisurely approach to portraying Bill Bryson, the renowned travel writer whose same-titled book details his attempt to conquer the Appalachian Trail, 2,180 miles from Georgia to Maine along the east coast of America.

It's worth noting that Redford is almost twice the age Bryson was when he set off on the hiking trail, but joined by a grizzled Nick Nolte, the spectre of infirmity closing in upon the both of them adds another layer of humour and tension.

Emma Thompson has a small role as Bryson's better half who can sense his feet beginning to itch after they attend the funeral of a friend. It isn't a midlife crisis looming but a late-life one that director Ken Kwapis only hints at to keep the mood light.

Nolte plays Bryson's old travelling buddy, Katz, who has fought a lifelong »

"Woods" Was Going To Be Redford & Newman

1 September 2015 5:44 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filmmaker Ken Kwapis has revealed that the upcoming Robert Redford and Nick Nolte drama "A Walk In The Woods" was originally going to feature an on-screen reunion between "Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid" and "The Sting" stars Redford and Paul Newman.

Redford has been planning this adaptation of the 1998 for a decade, but Newman's death in 2008 led Robert Redford to shelve the project for sometime. Four years later, Redford cast Nick Nolte in "The Company You Keep" and the pair finally got to work together for an extended period of time.

They clicked, and as a result Redford decided to proceed with "A Walk In The Woods" again. Kwapis tells Cinema Blend:

"They had never worked together before. And although their paths probably crossed over the years they didn't really know each other. So they worked on that film. They only had a few scenes together but they got on splendidly. »

A Walk In The Woods Would Have Starred Paul Newman

31 August 2015 3:59 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Paul Newman and Robert Redford on-screen efforts in Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid and The Sting are rightfully regarded as two of the best dual leading performances in the history of cinema. And it turns out that we almost got a third film with the pair of acting titans, because Robert Redford originally planned for Paul Newman to star opposite him in A Walk In The Woods. While recently talking with director Ken Kwapis ahead of A Walk In The Woods. theatrical release this Wednesday, the filmmaker revealed that the death of Paul Newman in September 2008, at the age of 83, led Robert Redford to "shelve the project for a while." Kwapis explained, He couldn.t imagine doing it with anyone else. He.d developed it as a vehicle for Paul and himself. But Redford.s interest in the adaptation of A Walk In The Woods was soon rejuvenated when »

After having two smash hits together — Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid (1968) and The Sting (1973) — Robert Redford and Paul Newman had often talked about reteaming but waited decades to finally find the right property. Redford, with his producer’s hat on, thought he had found it in the 1998 Bill Bryson book A Walk In The Woods, which chronicles the late-in-life hike Bryson took on with a friend named Stephen Katz  along the 2200-mile Appalachian Trail.

Interview: Actor Sam Elliott, Director Paul Weitz Visit ‘Grandma’

26 August 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Actor Sam Eliott will make you smile. The distinctive voice, his famous mustache and his character presence in a film or TV show increases any potential in the production. He recently was in Chicago with director Paul Weitz, as they teamed up in the film “Grandma,” starring the incomparable Lily Tomlin.

Grandma” has a very unique premise. Tomlin is the title character of Elle, who is visited by her granddaughter Sage (Julia Garner). The girl is seeking an abortion, and her feminist poet grandmother seems like the right fellow traveler on her way to the procedure. Sam Elliott portrays Karl, Elle’s ex-husband – she left him for a same sex partner – who harbors a resentment toward circumstances in their relationship. The two meet along the way to the clinic, and the resentment boils to the surface.

FX used their Television Critics Association presentation to make a couple of big announcements regarding their original series line-up.

First up, their long-running and acclaimed spy comedy "Archer" will be shifting networks over to Fxx for its seventh season where it will be teamed up with new animated series "Cassius and Clay" which is scoring a ten-episode first season.

Susan Sarandon is also onboard as the town's saloon and brothel owner. Both shows are expected to air in the first quarter of 2016.

10 Upcoming Sequels And Reboots That Will Destroy Your Faith In Cinema

7 August 2015 2:53 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

According to William Goldman, who won Oscars for writing Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid and All The President’s Men, there are three types of movies: those that aspire to quality and succeed, those that aspire to quality and fail, and those that were never meant to be any good at all.

The last group, Goldman claims, comprises “movies for which the pulse was either totally or primarily financial: rip-offs, spin-offs, sequels etc.” In other words, most of today’s pictures are about as creative and well intentioned as Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan.

Executives that talk about rebooting this or reimagining that sound like Eskimos describing snow, using multiple words to describe the same thing. In the end, they only require two – ‘cash’ and ‘grab’.

There have, of course, always been sequels and remakes, and the world would be a poorer place without »

Teenage Tom Hanks Actually Predicted His Amazing A-List Career

28 July 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Some of us dream of fame, some of us go after fame, and then there are those of us, like Tom Hanks, who know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they will become famous. From the age of 18, Hanks knew he was going to make it Big, and we have physical evidence to prove it. Before he became an A-lister, Hanks wrote a letter to George Roy Hill, director of such classics as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sting, and  in this letter he predicted his worldwide success.  As noted in a report by NPR, the Library of the Motion Picture Academy in Beverly Hills, California, features a letter Hanks wrote to the illustrious filmmaker in response to watching The Sting. While he praises Hills.s work, the purpose of this letter is to give him a heads up that he.s going to be a »

‘Mission: Impossible’ – Breaking Christopher McQuarrie out of Director’s Jail

27 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This Friday, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation will be released. It’s the fifth film in the iconic franchise, but sadly stands as only the third film of its director Christopher McQuarrie in 15 years since he got behind the camera. That’s a real shame, because Christopher McQuarrie is Hollywood’s best-kept secret when he really should be their pride and joy.

Christopher McQuarrie was so damn hot in the mid-90s. He wrote the script for the classic The Usual Suspects and came home with an Oscar. He ended up using that clout to get his feature-directing debut made with the criminally underrated The Way of the Gun, released in 2000. The film failed both critically and commercially – a domestic gross of $6 million, and a worldwide gross of only $13 million against a $21 million budget – and McQuarrie went from insider to outcast in Hollywood.

Fast forward eight years and McQuarrie had only »

"Get Hard"

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart team up in this comedy about a rich hedge-fund manager who is sentenced to San Quentin; desperate for tips on how to survive prison, he looks for help from a black businessman, assuming he'll know what to do. That's not racist at all! As it turns out, Hart's businessman has never even had a parking ticket, so it's the blind leading the blind. The Blu-ray has tons of extras, including an unrated cut of the film, a gag reel, deleted scenes, and these featurettes: "Just Put Your Lips Together and Blow," "Get Hard Line-o-Ramas," "The Kevin Hart Workout," "Face Off with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart," "-Ferrell Fighting," "A Date with John Mayer, »

Songs on Screen Week: 'New Jack Hustler' from 'New Jack City'

24 June 2015 3:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Songs On Screen: All week Hitfix will be featuring tributes by writers to their favorite musical moments from TV and film.  Check out the full series here. Last month when we did our Best Year in Film History series, I picked second and, as a result, I was able to select the correct answer: The best year in American cinematic history, at least over the last 50 years, is 1974 and any disagreements sadden and bore me. With that undeclared, but indisputable, victory in my back pocket, I was able to happily let colleagues choose many of my personal favorites for our Songs on Screen battle. You won't hear me say anything negative about "Fight the Power" and its centrality to "Do the Right Thing" or the evocative pull of "Nobody Does It Better" (or a slew of other James Bond themes) or the timelessness of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."

Laurie Metcalf to Play Annie Wilkes in Broadway Version of Stephen King’s Misery

23 June 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

When it was announced in March that Stephen King's classic horror novel Misery was getting the Broadway treatment, Elizabeth Marvel was intended to play the juicy role of number-one fan and number-one torturous motivator Annie Wilkes on stage. Due to House of Cards commitments, however, Marvel has left the project and Laurie Metcalf has joined it in her place.

Variety reports that Laurie Metcalf will play Annie Wilkes in the Misery Broadway play. Widely known for her stellar turn as Jackie Harris on Roseanne in addition to a plethora of other TV and film credits, Metcalf is perhaps best known to horror fans for her intense, unflinching portrayal as Mrs. Loomis in Scream 2.

As Wilkes, Metcalf will inflict pain on author Paul Sheldon, played by Bruce Willis in his Broadway debut. Metcalf is no stranger to the stage, having performed both off Broadway in Domesticated and on Broadway in The Other Place. »
