Sean Young Wants To Play This Superhero in Tim Burton’s Batman Sequel

1 April 2015 1:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ever since bursting out onto the scene in Stripes, taking a hit in Ridley Scott’s commercial flop Blade Runner, and making a fantastic rebound in No Way Out, people have wondered where Sean Young will be going next. But is Young on the same page as the rest of us? She’s no doubt quite talented but it’s been nearly four years since her last big hit (Cousins doesn’t count) and she seems to be looking in all the wrong places. Hence an uncomfortable situation where she reportedly scaled a wall at Warner Bros. to confront Tim Burton for not meeting with her with regard to the role of Catwoman in Burton’s Untitled Batman Sequel. You’ll recall the Burton’s 1989 take on Batman made an astounding $400M worldwide in 1989 so it’s natural that Young wants a role in the upcoming sequel (though that certainly »

Queen and Country | Review

27 February 2015 10:30 AM, PST | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

While Queen and Country presents an irreverent perspective on England's monarchy and military, Boorman's film is a bit too silly and lighthearted for its message to really take hold; it certainly lacks the satirical propensity and intensity of Robert Altman's M*A*S*H. Boorman's film attempts to combine the coming of age comedies of John Hughes with Ivan Reitman's Stripes, but he tones everything down a few too many notches. For better or worse, Caleb Landry Jones is the only one who seems to *get* the absurd silliness of it all -- either that or he is acting from a completely different script. »

WGA Awards 2015: Honoree Harold Ramis Led Quiet Revolution in Comedy

12 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The business of comedy writing in film is often a criminally under-laurelled one, and in life, multitalented writer-director-actor Harold Ramis only picked up a single screenwriting award (a Bafta for “Groundhog Day”) for a scripting career that spanned from “Animal House” to “Ghostbusters,” “Caddyshack” and “Back to School.”

Now the posthumous recipient of the WGA’s Laurel Award for Screenwriting Achievement, Ramis joins an august group of fellow funnymen including Mel Brooks, Blake Edwards, Paul Mazursky and Norman Krasna, and it’s hard to argue he doesn’t belong in their company.

During his decade-plus heyday, Ramis was the quietest kind of auteur, sculpting a new model for the modern comedy that came so naturally its novelty was easy to miss. Rooted in the frantic, countercultural anarchy of sketch comedy (his pre-film career included stints with National Lampoon and “Sctv”), Ramis’ work easily incorporated the rhythms of classic screwball comedy, »

Ivan Reitman interview: Draft Day, Baywatch, Evolution

31 January 2015 9:56 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ivan Reitman talks Kevin Costner, sports movies and Baywatch, but not Ghostbusters...

You probably don't need us to tell you that Superbowl weekend has just been and gone in the Us. But maybe you might have missed Ivan Reitman's smart comedy-drama Draft Day. Following Kevin Costner as Sonny, it's a movie that's got a surface of sport, but isn't really about it at all.

We had the chance to speak to its director, Ivan Reitman, about working with Kevin Costner, sports movies, marketing, modern audiences, Six Days Seven Nights, and Evolution...

I'm from the UK, know next to nothing about American Football, and got to the end understanding all the things I needed to understand.

That's part of the magic trick of this movie. It's a bit like that wonderful movie Margin Call. You don't really know trading and all of that stuff, but you can still get very »

Michael Keaton remembers Harold Ramis, tackling Shakespeare, Ron Howard's 'Gung Ho'

25 January 2015 7:55 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Monica — Michael Keaton is having the time of his life. Cruising along an awards circuit that has brought him plenty of kudos for his performance in Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)" and probably more opportunities to talk about himself than he'd prefer, he seems consistently high on life and not at all phased by the grind. He's not someone who has really sought out this kind of attention and acclaim, often retreating to his ranch in Montana away from the Hollywood fray, but now that he's feeling the love? Let's just say I doubt anyone's having as much fun with all of this than he is. On the eve of this year's Oscar nominations announcement, I met Keaton for coffee and a light lunch at one of his favorite Santa Monica spots to chew on as much of his career and the awards »

Harold Ramis Honored by Writers Guild with Screen Laurel Award

13 January 2015 11:18 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Writers Guild of America West has selected the late Harold Ramis as the recipient of its Laurel Award for screenwriting achievement.

The award will be presented at the WGA Awards ceremony on Feb. 14, with Erica Mann Ramis and family accepting.

Harold Ramis changed the face of comedy,” said WGA West VP Howard A. Rodman. “His death last year deprived us of his unique way of seeing the world, at once hilarious and wise. From his early work with National Lampoon and Sctv through ‘Animal House,’ ‘Meatballs,’ ‘Caddyshack’ and ‘Ghostbusters,’ Ramis’ voice was strong, clear, outrageous in all the best ways.”

“His unrealized projects – an adaptation of ‘Confederacy of Dunces,’ a biopic about Emma Goldman – leave us aching with an anticipation that will never be fulfilled,” Rodman added. “And then there’s ‘Groundhog Day,’ one of modern cinema’s few true masterworks, a film that is impeccably crafted, morally astute, »
