‘American Gigolo’ TV Adaptation in the Works by Paramount, Jerry Bruckheimer

18 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Richard Gere‘s ”American Gigolo” is the latest film to get a TV makeover. Paramount Television and Jerry Bruckheimer Television will try their hand at bringing the feature-length crime drama to the small screen, the two companies announced on Wednesday. Bruckheimer was also a producer of the 1980 movie, which starred Gere as a male escort in trouble with the law. See photos: 28 Classic Movies That Never Won Best Picture Oscars – From ‘Raging Bull’ to ‘Chinatown’ “With its signature noir aesthetic, ‘American Gigolo’ has remained a deeply entertaining, psychological thriller and I'm thrilled to partner with Brad and Amy on remaking it into a television. »

Jerry Bruckheimer adapting sexual thriller American Gigolo as a TV series

23 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Despite a weak run of recent films (The Canyons, Dying Of The Light, Dominion: Prequel To The Exorcist), Paul Schrader is still the guy who wrote Taxi Driver and Raging Bull. Amongst his better films as director, American Gigolo stands out. The 1980 film has had a lasting impact on films and now looks to be on the cusp of being a part of pop culture yet again. Jerry Bruckheimer, who served as producer on American Gigolo, is reportedly developing the film as a TV series. Bruckheimer would »

The Callow Way – Drive, Dying of the Light and Hollywood Scandals

26 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway looks at the Hollywood debacle of Nicolas Cage’s upcoming movie Dying of the Light

A few years ago, hot off the back of Bronson and Valhalla Rising, Nicolas Winding Refn was in Hollywood developing a film with Harrison Ford. Disagreements over the ending meant neither Ford nor Winding Refn remained attached the film. The upside was that Ford gave the Dane some very strong pills for the flu he was suffering from. While under the influence of these tablets, he had a meeting with the star of The Notebook and Lars and the Real Girl, and because he was not firing on all cylinders, he ended the meeting early and asked the actor to drive him home. Flicking through radio stations on the drive back to his hotel, Winding Refn said that this is what he wanted to make a film about; a guy driving round La listening to electropop. »

The Definitive Scary Scenes from Non-Horror Movies: 30-21

17 October 2014 6:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

30. No Country for Old Men (2007)

Scene: Coin Flip

Video: http://youtu.be/0iAezyDzj0M

There was a brief period of time from 2006-2009 when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences made some more daring, but wholly deserved choices for Best Picture. It began in 2006, when Martin Scorsese finally won for The Departed which, while not his best and not nearly as dark as, say, Taxi Driver or Raging Bull, still leaned that direction. Three years later, they handed the Oscar to The Hurt Locker over the blockbuster Avatar, rewarding quality over audience love. But in between the two it was given to No Country for Old Men, an incredibly dark neo-Western based on the Cormac McCarthy novel of the same name. It’s still one of the Coen Brothers’ best films, an incredible cat-and-mouse journey through West Texas in the 1980′s. The film stars Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones, »

Trailer for Nicolas Cage's Espionage Thriller Dying Of The Light

17 October 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I would like to see Nicolas Cage make a good movie again, and this may or may not be it. The poor guy has been on a downward spiral, making lots of really bad movies lately. We now have a trailer for an espionage thriller that he stars in called Dying of the Light. It was written and directed by Paul Schrader, who is the writer of classic films such as Raging Bull and Taxi Driver.

At first glance it seems as though he brought over some of that talent for this and made a great movie, but the main talent involved with the feature are currently protesting it, including the director. Here's a statement from the director, who also posted a poster with himself, Cage, Anton Yelchin, and producer Nicolas Winding Refn protesting the film. Here's a note from the director on why they are doing this:

Watch: Trailer for Paul Schrader's Troubled 'Dying of the Light', Starring Nic Cage

15 October 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Paul Schrader still is able to make movies. I do not understand how this can happen. Yes, I know he wrote Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and The Last Temptation of Christ, but unless he is working with Martin Scorsese, every other thing he has made has ranged from subpar to genuinely awful, much like his last film The Canyons. You know, the one with Lindsay Lohan and James Deen. The one I and six other people saw. Well, today we are "treated" to a trailer for his latest film Dying of the Light, starring the man who is willing to take on any role: Nicolas Cage. Now, I like Nic Cage. I think he is a legitimately good actor. He just has a knack for picking the worst material possible. He had a bit of luck with this year's Joe, David Gordon Green's movie that came and went, but »

Schoonmaker, Scorsese Talk Up ‘Tales of Hoffmann’

15 October 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lyon – Martin Scorsese has influenced generations of new filmmakers. But who and what films influenced Scorsese? One front-runner: “The Tales of Hoffmann,” Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s 1951 adaptation of Jacques Offenbach’s opera, which liberated the duo from the constraints of early 1950s’ sound cinema.

In a video presentation made for and screened at the Lyon Lumière Festival Monday, Scorsese admitted that he became “rather obsessed” by the movie.

That could be an understatement. Attending Lyon on Tuesday Thelma Schoonmaker, Scorsese’s three-time Oscar winning editor and Powell’s widow, took a captivated audience through the film, shot in only 17 days, its singularity and huge impact on not only Scorsese but also George Romero. Cecil B. DeMille was another large admirer. Bertrand Tavernier pointed to “Blade Runner” as just one movie that channeled “Tales.”

Nicolas Cage Old & Shaky But Not Scared in 'Dying of the Light' Trailer

15 October 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's a chance we just might get a break from the terrible films that Nicolas Cage has been making lately. Director Paul Schrader (writer of Raging Bull and Taxi Driver) is entering espionage thriller territory with Dying of the Light, and Cage isn't playing the kind of protagonist you'd expect. Complete with grayed hair, and a shaky, elderly demeanor, Cage plays an ailing veteran CIA agent who is hellbent on taking down a terrorist who has evaded him for years. This doesn't look half bad, but Shrader hasn't directed the best films throughout his career. At least it looks better than Cage's other recent work. Watch? Here's the first trailer for Paul Schrader's Dying of the Light, originally from Apple: Dying of the Light is written and directed Paul Schrader (director of The Canyons, Adam Resurrected and writer of Taxi Driver and Raging Bull).

Nicolas Cage fights for revenge in the trailer for Dying of the Light

15 October 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

For most people these days, a new Nicolas Cage movie is grounds for immediate ignorance. The guy has turned in only a few decent performances (Joe is actually the only one that comes to mind) with the rest being pure, unadulterated crap. Still, the prospect of a movie written and directed by Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) and producer by Nicolas Winding Refn is enticing enough to garner my viewing. Schrader has a history of control issues when it comes to his films. After his »

Martin Freeman joins Maxine Peake drama

10 October 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: The Hobbit star joins Funny Cow cast.

The Hobbit star Martin Freeman and Boardwalk Empire’s Stephen Graham are newly attached to Maxine Peake drama Funny Cow, which is due to shoot in the UK in 2015.

Peake, best known for her roles in British TV dramas Shameless and Silk, will lead cast in Funny Cow, which charts the rise of a stand-up comedienne in the sometimes violent and macho clubs of Northern England in the 1970’s and 80’s.

The Mummy actor John Hannah is also attached.

The script comes from Peaky Blinders and Hyena actor Tony Pitts, who will also act in the film, with Tinge Krishnan (Junkhearts) on board to direct.

Richard Hawley is set to score the film.

Moviehouse Entertainment will handle sales and produce alongside Kevin Proctor’s Pow Films.

Moviehouse’s Mark Vennis told ScreenDaily: “Reminiscent of classics Lenny and Raging Bull, Funny Cow is going to be a hard hitting film that »

‘Ghostbusters’ Femme-Centric Revamp Reunites Paul Feig With His ‘Heat’ Scribe

8 October 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Well, that femme-centric Ghostbusters reboot is a reality, and upon some reflection, the notion of chicks chasing ghosts is starting to grow on this caveman. Paul Feig is officially aboard to execute his idea to relaunch a franchise that Amy Pascal has salivated 0ver for years dominated by an endless wait for Bill Murray to reprise his Peter Venkman, or at least to acknowledge he had read the sequel script. My pal Borys Kit scooped that Feig will be helped by Katie Dippold, his collaborator on the Melissa McCarthy-Sandra Bullock starrer The Heat. Feig’s potential participation cropped up in August, and I must admit, I reacted like a chauvinist in wanting to preserve the spirit of the original, one of my favorite guy films.

Feig, along with Judd Apatow, has done great things to prove that women can be ferociously funny — Feig in the ballsy comedies Bridesmaids and The Heat. »

Buffalo 8: First Time Directors — Getting From “Who” to Tarantino

6 October 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Hope for Film | See recent Hope for Film news »

Bigger film budgets continue to dwindle. Smaller film sets continue to appear. Camera technology and film centric software continue to evolve. Through all the change, one aspect of film production that has remained the same— difficult directors. As a producer, I understand this. Filmmaker’s are passionate people by nature. Their work is the ultimate fruit of their labor, and they only want to make quality of the highest caliber they’re capable of. Of course, there are a few directors in our industry who have a license to demand their perfected vision — David Fincher and James Cameron have proven their artistic credibility, skill set, and commercial viability through consistent quality work and perseverance.  Yet, as an independent producer, I’m often presented low budget films helmed by first time directors with an unrealistic approach to execute their vision on a budget — most often due to lack of experience. This serves not to lessen ambition, »

'The Liberator' Interview with Edgar Ramirez | Exclusive

3 October 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

&#201dgar Ram&#237rez has been an actor on the rise for the past seven years, after he first came into prominence playing the deadly and mysterious Paz in The Bourne Ultimatum. Following roles in Vantage Point and Che (Part 1), the Venezuelan-born actor delivered a breakthrough performance in the mini-series Carlos, which lead to roles in Wrath of the Titans, Zero Dark Thirty, The Counselor and Deliver Us from Evil.

The actor takes on a character close to his heart in the fascinating indie drama The Liberator, where he plays the historic figure Simon Bolivar, who became a legend by literally liberating South American countries such as Peru, Panama, Northern Brazil, Panama, Ecuador, Colombia and the actor's home country of Venezuela. I had the chance to speak with the actor earlier this summer about The Liberator, which hits theaters on October 3. Here's what he had to say below.

First Look: Nicolas Cage in Paul Schrader's Film 'Dying of the Light'

24 September 2014 4:03 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Wait - Paul Schrader, screenwriter of Raging Bull & Taxi Driver and director of American Gigolo, cast Nicolas Cage in his new film? This has to be a joke? Nope. It's real, and it's already shot and finishing up for 2015 release. Schrader's new "mid-budget indie", which he wrote and directed, is titled Dying of the Light executive produced by fellow filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn. What a team-up this is: Schrader, Refn, Cage. Who else? Well, the cast includes Anton Yelchin (also seen in the photo), Alexander Karim and Irène Jacob. I won't deny that I'm curious about this. Take a look at the image below, which doesn't reveal much about the way this will play. Of all the recent Cage films, this is the one I'm most interested in. Here's the first photo from Paul Schrader's film Dying of the Light, debuted by Variety (via SlashFilm): The project has been in development for years, »

20 Movie Auditions For Famous Roles You Need To See

16 September 2014 4:01 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


When it comes to the really iconic characters in film history, we tend to get tremendously attached to the actors that play them. We assign ownership to these characters, and kind of forget that they didn’t always belong to the actors that brought them to life. Luke Skywalker wasn’t always Mark Hamill, and Indiana Jones wasn’t always Harrison Ford. Once upon a time, these parts were up for grabs, and these actors had to audition for them just like everybody else, competing with hundreds of other hopefuls. It’s amazing to sit down and watch the auditions that landed them these fantastic roles, which effectively changed the course of their careers.

But equally interesting are the auditions of actors who, for whatever reason, didn’t get the part, but went on to become celebrities for their work on other projects regardless. It’s a classic what if scenario. »

‘Whiplash’ Director Damien Chazelle Inspired by His Own Band Days

7 September 2014 4:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Writer-director Damien Chazelle’s own experiences in a hyper-competitive high school jazz band helped to inspire “Whiplash,” his darkly comic portrait of an obsessive 19-year-old drummer (Miles Teller) trying to curry favor with a perfectionist bandleader (J.K. Simmons) who isn’t satisfied until there’s quite literally blood on the sheet music. A double winner of the dramatic grand jury prize and audience award at Sundance, the Sony Pictures Classics release made its international debut at Cannes, and plays Toronto Monday.

Variety: This movie really lays waste to the sentimental cliches of the inspirational-teacher drama. In Sundance, some people dubbed it “Full Metal Juilliard” or a sadomasochistic “Dead Poets Society.” It might also be called “To Sir, With Hate.”

Chazelle: When I started the script, I was just writing something in my mind about a drummer, though it could be any kind of artist, going as far as possible to be great, »

Venice: Thelma Schoonmaker On Working With Martin Scorsese, ‘Silence’ & Preserving Michael Powell’s Legacy

2 September 2014 2:37 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Thelma Schoonmaker was at the Venice Film Festival today to accept the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement. She was also on the Lido to present a restored version of her late husband Michael Powell’s The Tales Of Hoffman. I sat down with Martin Scorsese‘s longtime Oscar-winning editor for a chat this morning overlooking a raging Adriatic Sea. Our conversation ranged from two of the most important men in her life, to the controversy surrounding The Wolf Of Wall Street, the ways digital editing is changing the business, and getting ready for Scorsese’s passion project Silence.

Schoonmaker, who first edited a Scorsese film with Who’s That Knocking At My Door in 1967, and has cut each of his movies since Raging Bull, also works with the director to see Powell’s films restored and the word spread about the helmer of such classics as The Red Shoes, The Life And Death Of Colonel Blimp »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

Jake Gyllenhaal on Losing 30 Pounds and Himself in ‘Nightcrawler’

2 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jake Gyllenhaal has a razor-thin scar on the palm of his hand. It’s a permanent souvenir from the set of “Nightcrawler,” the Toronto Film Festival thriller, in which the actor plays a twisted crime paparazzo. On the Los Angeles shoot last fall, director Dan Gilroy was filming Gyllenhaal simmering alone in a house after his character, Lou, suffers a professional setback. “We were in the middle of a scene with a mirror,” Gyllenhaal recalls on a recent afternoon. “I hit the mirror.” The violent act wasn’t in the script, and Gyllenhaal still isn’t sure what propelled him to do it. “It was just a choice in that moment that happened,” says Gyllenhaal, who accidentally sliced open his hand on a shard of glass.

Doctors at Cedars-Sinai eventually stopped the bleeding and stitched him up, and Gyllenhaal returned to work eight hours later, with his wrist wrapped in gauze. »
