‘The Saint’ Movie Reboot in the Works at Paramount

17 June 2016 2:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount is developing a movie reboot of “The Saint,” two decades after Val Kilmer’s thriller and 50 years after Roger Moore’s TV series.

The studio has secured a deal for book series rights and is closing producing deals with Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Brad Krevoy and Robert Evans with the goal of starting an action franchise.

The Saint” is based on Leslie Charteris’ book series, which follow the debonair Simon Templar character first introduced in the 1928 novel “Meet the Tiger,” followed by “Enter the Saint” in 1930. Templar stole from corrupt politicians and warmongers, leaving a calling card of a stick figure with a halo.

George Sanders starred in half a dozen films as “The Saint” in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Prior to his days portraying James Bond, Moore starred in a popular long-running British TV series during the 1960s.

The 1997 movie starred Kilmer and Elisabeth Shue, and was »

John Travolta and Rob Lowe on Comedy, Favorite Roles and the Secret of their Long Careers

1 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When John Travolta sat down with Rob Lowe at Variety’s “Actors on Actors” studio, they bonded immediately. It wasn’t just about their impressively long careers, though they did swap tales about the pitfalls they’ve faced throughout. Or their ability to transition from television to film and back again. But Lowe stunned Travolta (and the audience) with his tale of being disappointed at missing out on the role of Christian Troy in “Nip/Tuck” — and confronting Ryan Murphy. When he finally met the producer, Lowe said Murphy told him, “Rob, don’t you know I wrote that part for you?” But the script never made its way to the actor, because, as Lowe recalled, Murphy was “not Ryan Murphy yet,” he said. “Isn’t that a great Hollywood story?”

Why are Debra Winger and Sam Elliott doing a multi-cam sitcom for Netflix?

30 March 2016 6:11 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Through long, varied, and successful careers in show business, Debra Winger and Sam Elliott have done a little bit of everything. She was one of the world's biggest movie stars in the '80s thanks to films like An Officer and a Gentleman and Terms of Endearment, but she also played Wonder Girl on the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman series, did stand-up comedy at the start of her career, and was one of the final patients on HBO's In Treatment. Elliott was a late-period castmember on the Mission: Impossible TV show, has played dozens of heavies and heroes in the movies, and even turned up clean-shaven on the final season of Justified. Starting Friday, though, you'll get to see them do something they've never done before: act in a traditional multi-cam sitcom, shot on a stage in front of a studio audience. In Netflix's The Ranch(*), they play an estranged »

TV Review: ‘The Ranch’

21 March 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix has been opportunistic about seizing upon titles, talent and genres that more traditional TV sources have neglected, which likely explains its interest in doing a multi-camera sitcom, albeit one peppered with pay-cable-type expletives. Enter “The Ranch,” which, starring Ashton Kutcher, and coming from “Two and a Half Men” alums Don Reo and Jim Patterson, might as well be called simply “Three Men” given the similarities.

Certainly, nobody strained any creative muscles in crafting this concept. Kutcher plays Colt, a perpetual Peter Pan who has spent the last several years pursuing a semipro football career, still something of a local hero because of his exploits as a college quarterback. Colt stops by home in Colorado en route to a tryout, and quickly finds himself at odds again with his dad, Beau (Sam Elliott), and older brother Rooster (Danny Masterson), who never left and, between put-downs, fills his sibling in on »

'Lethal Weapon' TV Show Gets Clayne Crawford in Mel Gibson Role

10 March 2016 12:28 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The dynamic duo of Riggs and Murtagh from the hit Lethal Weapon movies are coming to the small screen, and now we know who is playing both roles. One month after Damon Wayans Sr. signed on to play Roger Murtaugh, Deadline reports that Clayne Crawford has landed the role of Martin Riggs. The pilot was given the green light following Damon Wayans Sr.'s casting.

The pilot will be based on the Lethal Weapon movie series, which starred Mel Gibson as the maverick Martin Riggs and Danny Glover as his rule-abiding partner, Roger Murtaugh. The hour-long series is expected to follow the same general plot as the movies, but there will be a few differences with the main characters. In the series, Riggs is a Texas cop and former Navy Seal who moves to L.A. to start fresh, after suffering the tragic loss of his wife and baby.

12 February 2016 12:42 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in October, we reported that Fox is developing a new TV series based on the 1987 action classic Lethal Weapon, which Warner Bros. Television is producing. The project was picked up with a cast contingency, meaning the pilot's development would hinge on who was cast. Today, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Damon Wayans Sr. has been cast as Roger Murtaugh, lifting the cast contingency and clearing the way for Fox to formally issue a pilot order for the potential series.

The pilot will be based on the Lethal Weapon movie series, which starred Mel Gibson as the maverick Martin Riggs and Danny Glover as his rule-abiding partner, Roger Murtaugh.

Asc Career Honoree John Toll Learned From the Best

12 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back in the day, aspiring cinematographers would join the union and work their way up, learning their craft along the way. And if they were lucky, they would be mentored by a few good men.

“John is one of the last examples of that,” says Caleb Deschanel of fellow director of photography John Toll, who will receive the American Society of Cinematographers’ Lifetime Achievement Award at the group’s 30th annual awards ceremony Feb. 14.

“(Toll) worked with fantastic d.p.’s and had the focus and determination to learn from them,” adds Deschanel, who himself received the career honor in 2009. “Today, there are so many film schools, and people burst onto the scene without all that experience. Many of the films John has done, with sweeping battles, would have become chaos in the hands of a lesser cinematographer. John maintains his artistry, because of his command of all the available »

Three J.D. Souther Reissues Remind Us How Good He Is

11 February 2016 9:16 PM, PST | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

J.D. Souther John David Souther Black Rose Home by Dawn (Omnivore)   J.D. Souther's songs are better known as sung by other people, which is good for his bank account but puzzling if you've heard his fine LPs. I wouldn't be surprised if more people nowadays know of him from his acting on the TV series Nashville than from his career in music. If there's any justice, these three reissues will redress that imbalance.

After this Texan moved to L.A., he teamed with Glenn Frey in the band Longbranch/Pennywhistle (they kept co-writing songs after Frey founded the Eagles, notably "New Kid in Town"), lived upstairs from Jackson Browne, and dated Linda Ronstadt.

Browne told him to audition for David Geffen, who'd just started the Asylum label, and that led directly to 1972's John David Souther. Its original ten-song program, which kicks off with "The Fast One," one of »

'The Exorcist' TV Show Is Coming to Fox

23 January 2016 11:39 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in 2013, we reported that Morgan Creek Productions had teamed up with screenwriter Jeremy Slater for a TV series remake of the classic horror film The Exorcist. That report revealed that the production company was shopping the potential series around, with the project garnering interest from several broadcast and cable networks, although no specific networks were mentioned. Today we have word from The Hollywood Reporter that Fox has issued a pilot order for the potential series, with Jeremy Slater remaining on board to write the pilot script.

The news comes just a few months after Morgan Creek Productions issued a brief statement on their official Twitter page that they "will never attempt to remake The Exorcist." This statement came just after the news that Morgan Creek was planning on selling off its entire 78-film library, although they would keep the remake rights to five of these movies, one of which was The Exorcist, »
