Jacob's Ladder remake: casting and production latest

28 June 2016 4:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tony Sokol Jul 1, 2016

The new Jacob's Ladder will be a "modern-day paranoid action thriller about two brothers"

As you may know, a Jacob's Ladder remake is in the works. Ld Entertainment says that Jacob’s Ladder will be an homage to the classic 1990 supernatural thriller rather than a remake, meaning it will take place in the present and deal with contemporary issues.

Jacob’s Ladder will be directed by David M Rosenthal. The screenplay was written by Jeff Buhler (The Midnight Meat Train) and Sarah Thorp.

It's now being reported that Karla Souza, a regular on the Us TV show How to Get Away With Murder, will play Annie/Angel, a trauma nurse who works with Jacob’s medical crew in Afghanistan. Souza’s latest movie ¿Qué Culpa Tiene el Niño? opened at number one in her native Mexico in May.

Karla Souza ("How to Get Away With Murder") has scored a role in David M. Rosenthal's re-imagining of Adrian Lynne's famously trippy 1990 thriller "Jacob's Ladder" for Ld Entertainment.

Souza will play Annie/Angel, a trauma nurse who works with Jacob's medical crew in Afghanistan, the new film updating the film's setting from the Vietnam war elements that were a part of the first.

Jeff Buhler and Sarah Thorp penned the new take which Mickey Liddell, Pete Shilaimon, Jennifer Monroe, Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta will produce.

‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Turns 10: Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt Tell All

23 June 2016 1:07 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The moment Meryl Streep read the script for “The Devil Wears Prada,” she knew it would be—in her words—“Yuge.” But despite a truckload of awards and a reputation as the greatest actress on the planet, Streep had always been hesitant to negotiate for more pay. Maybe it was the character Miranda Priestly, a fashion magazine editor so powerful she could terrify underlings without even raising her voice, that pushed her to do it. But the Oscar-winning actress felt emboldened. “The offer was to my mind slightly, if not insulting, not perhaps reflective of my actual value to the project,” Streep tells Variety. “There was my ‘goodbye moment,’ and then they doubled the offer. I was 55, and I had just learned, at a very late date, how to deal on my own behalf.”

The Devil Wears Prada” showed Hollywood that it was never wise to underestimate a strong woman’s worth. »

Watch Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph Sing Wacky Variety Show Medley

8 June 2016 7:13 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Tina "Trina" Fey united with Maya "Myra" Rudolph on Tuesday's Maya & Marty to talk about their love for Seventies-era variety show music medleys. The former SNL castmates climbed atop tall (arguably too tall) stools, where they shared childhood memories and sang period-centric material into skinny (arguably too skinny) microphones.

"It really has always been a dream of mine to have a variety show where I can perform with my friends," Rudolph reminisced. "I remember when I was little, my brother and I would act out Sonny & Cher – until we found out they were married, »

The 80 Best-Directed Films, According to the Directors Guild of America

3 May 2016 6:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With editors and cinematographers chiming in on the best examples of their craft in cinema history, it’s now time for directors to have a say. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Directors Guild of America, they’ve conducted a poll for their members when it comes to the 80 greatest directorial achievements in feature films since the organization’s founding in 1936. With 2,189 members participating, the top pick went to Francis Ford Coppola for The Godfather, one of three films from the director making the top 10.

Even with films from nonmembers being eligible, the male-dominated, America-centric choices are a bit shameful (Kathryn Bigelow is the only female director on the list, and the first foreign film doesn’t show up until number 26), but not necessarily surprising when one looks at the make-up of its membership. As with any list, there’s bound to be disagreements (Birdman besting The Bicycle Thief, »

Saturday Night Live Review: Julia Louis-Dreyfus Hosts

17 April 2016 12:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our host for tonight is Julia Louis-Dreyfus, best known for her work on Seinfeld and Veep and for being something of an all-around comedy goddess. She held her own tonight in an episode that was a bit hit-or-miss, with pre-taped segments outshining weaker live sketches, but overall containing several memorably funny moments. Let’s dig in!   Cold Open: Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton go toe to toe in the latest democratic debate, in which they are faced with audience questions from New Yorkers Elaine Benes and Rachel Green. I’m ready for the primaries to be over not just because they’ve been so exhausting, but also because I want SNL to have some new material to play with in their cold opens. Right now, it’s pretty much Donald Trump isracist and repulsive, Ted Cruz is evil and repulsive, Bernie Sanders is poor and kooky, Hillary Clinton wants it real bad, »

Last-Minute SAG Awards 2016 Predictions: Sentimentality and 'Diversity'

30 January 2016 4:50 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

2016 SAG Awards Predictions: The Winners Last-minute SAG Awards predictions, as the 2016 SAG Awards ceremony will begin in about half an hour (Jan. 30) at the Shrine Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles. So far, there's one clear winner at the ceremony. That's veteran film and (mostly) television actress Carol Burnett (The Carol Burnett Show, Annie), who will be handed the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be handling that particular presentation. As for the SAG Awards' competitive motion picture categories, this year remains murkier than most even though the list of likely winners has been narrowed down in recent weeks – especially following the Golden Globes ceremony and the Oscar nominations announcement. The 'oddities' The easy part: eliminating the “oddities.” No matter how good (or not-so-good) their performances, Johnny Depp in Black Mass, Sarah Silverman in I Smile Back, Helen Mirren in Woman in Gold, Idris Elba »

SAG Life Achievement Honoree Carol Burnett On Her Career and Giving Back

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

On Jan. 30, Carol Burnett will receive the SAG Life Achievement Award for her professional achievements and her humanitarianism. The legendary star of television, stage and film is acutely aware of the roots of both.

Show business held out an escape from the impoverished, chaotic, hotel room childhood she vividly depicted in bestselling memoir “One More Time,” and its stage adaptation “Hollywood Arms,” co-authored by her late daughter Carrie Hamilton.

The biz also allowed her to spread some sunshine around, though as she says, “not at first. We couldn’t give back because we had nothing to give. But once I started to make even mild salaries, I wanted to help other people, starting with members of my family and spreading out.”

Grandmother “Nanny” and Mama scorned young Carol’s pipe dream of attending college, let alone living the glamorous life of her beloved film stars. Yet the still-mysterious appearance of »

Does Writing the Screenplay to Your Film Help Best Director Chances?

12 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

With a number of big Golden Globe wins last night, including best director and best dramatic picture for The Revenant, director Alejandro G. Inarritu finds himself once more in the thick of the Oscar hunt. The Mexican-born filmmaker won big last year with three Oscars for his avant garde drama Birdman, which scored him the best original screenplay, best director, and best picture awards.

This year, with the western revenge thriller The Revenant, Inarritu has once more directed a film that he wrote himself, this time adapting the screenplay from the novel by Michael Punke with co-writer Mark L. Smith.

Inarritu is not the only writer/director with films in the race this year, however, as a number of other contenders boast a director who also penned the film’s script. The original screenplay hopefuls include Spotlight (directed and written by Tom McCarthy with co-writer »

The Definitive Romantic Comedies: 10-1

9 January 2016 4:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Well, we’ve finally reached the summit: the 10 most definitive romantic comedies of all time. Unlike the other sections of this list, there is not a movie here that approaches “bad.” As always, some are better than others, despite the order. But one thing is for sure: if you plan to have a rom-com binge-a-thon soon, this is where you start, no questions asked. In fact, after reading this, you should go do that and report back.

What’s funnier than men dressing in drag? Depends on who you ask. It’s Billy Wilder again with a fictional story of two musicians – Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) – who witness the St. Valentine’s Day massacre in Chicago and leave town. But, since the mob has ties everywhere, they need to disguise themselves as best they can: as women in an »
