Review: 'Man From Reno' Is Stellar Pulp Storytelling With A Twist

26 March 2015 3:33 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Dave Boyle’s “Man From Reno” is the type of film where alleyways are home offices, every bar matchbox has an unknown number inside, and if a character enters a bookshop, you better believe old issues of “True Detective” are hanging visibly in frame. Boyle, who previously made festival favorite “White on Rice," plunges his first genre entry into the annals of film noir. This is stellar pulp storytelling with a twist, blending fine performances from Ayako Fujitani (“Tokyo!”) and Pepe Serna (“Scarface”) with an evocative view of California’s Bay Area. Placed somewhere between “The Big Sleep” and “Chan is Missing” — Wayne Wang’s 1982 independent neo-noir about two Chinese taxi drivers scouring San Francisco for stolen money — the film shares aspects of Wang’s take on the genre. Both films explore the coastal city from a little-seen perspective, here delving into its Japanese-American community with a unique eye. 'Reno' »

Watch: Supercut Takes A Bird's Eye View Of Brian De Palma's Overhead Shots

25 March 2015 11:39 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Three minutes is hardly any time at all to spend analyzing the work of a master director such as Brian De Palma, so if you have it to spare, this supercut from Vimeo user movement_of_time is well worth the 180 seconds. The video is designed to prove a point about one of De Palma’s preferred camera techniques. Namely, “Brian De Palma is one of those directors who have their own special well recognizable style. And exactly this style he realizes using certain techniques, one of which is ‘view from above’. This method can be seen, if not in all his movies, then in the vast majority. ‘View from above’ is a shot taken from the top distant point, which shows the specific details of the current event. Moreover ‘view from above’ is a method of certain removal from the space of the movie and the voyeurism form that »

How Al Pacino Feels About The Scarface Remake

19 March 2015 7:46 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Along with Michael Corleone from the Godfather movies and Frank Serpico from Serpico, Tony Montana is easily one of Al Pacino's most iconic roles - but apparently he really doesn't care if any actor goes out to try and one-up him in the upcoming Scarface remake. Following up on the news from earlier this week that screenwriter Jonathan Herman is working on the latest version of Scarface, The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Al Pacino at the New York Premiere of his new film Danny Collins and asked him what he thought of the upcoming project. Pacino reportedly responded quickly, saying that he's fine with the developing re-do, and that he actually finds the studio's plans to be "interesting." He added, It's part of what we do. We remake things. I may remake a movie I saw recently. I can't say what it is. It's about 50 years old. Of course, »

The Scarface remake is fine with Al Pacino, "It's what we do" he says

19 March 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

While I hardly consider Scarface to be my favourite gangster film (that would be Goodfellas) I can appreciate its place in film history and its impact on the genre. So when news broke yesterday of the proposed Scarface remake taking a step closer to reality, I was left wondering…why? One person who actually seems to be on board with the idea of a remake is Al Pacino himself. At the New York premiere of his new film, Danny Collins, The Hollywood Reporter asked Pacino what he »

Scarface Remake Hires Straight Outta Compton Writer

19 March 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Universal Pictures has been working on a "Scarface" remake for a while. And now comes word that the studio just hired "Straight Outta Compton" writer Jonathan Herman to do a rewrite. Paul Attanasio and David Ayer wrote previous drafts of the film, which will be a new and original take on the immigrant story, which spawned films in 1932 and 1983. The 1983 version tells the story of Cuban refugee Tony Montana (Al Pacino) who arrives in Miami with nothing and rises up to become a powerful drug kingpin. The new film will be set in Los Angeles and explore an immigrant's rise in the criminal underworld. Pablo Larrain will direct. »

Scarface remake presses ahead, writer found

18 March 2015 11:47 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The latest Scarface remake lands a fresh writer, as Universal presses on with the project...

It's not a new revelation that a remake of Scarface is in the works in the Hollywood system, but it is a project we'd heard little of in recent times. We'd sort of thought that this one had died a quiet death.

But it hasn't. Accepting that Brian De Palma's 1983 Scarface, starring Al Pacino, was in itself a remake of Howard Hawks' 1932 film, there's another take on the story coming. This one will relocate events to present day, centring on a Mexican character in Los Angeles. The lead character will still be called Tony, but, apparently, will have a different surname this time.

Scarface has a director attached, in the form of Pablo Larrain (who helmed No), and previously, the screenplay had been tackled by David Ayer and Paul Attanasio. However, Universal Pictures »

Universal is reportedly moving forward with its remake of Scarface.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Straight Outta Compton writer Jonathan Herman has been hired to pen the movie.

'Scarface' Remake Gets 'Straight Outta Compton' Writer

18 March 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal Pictures has brought on Straight Outta Compton screenwriter Jonathan Herman to rewrite the script for their Scarface remake. We haven't heard anything about the remake since March 2014, when the project brought on director Pablo Larra&#237n (No). The screenplay was previously worked on by Paul Attanasio (The Fighter) and David Ayer (Suicide Squad).

The story will follow a criminal's rise through the Los Angeles criminal underworld, much like the first two movies, but with a different setting. The original 1932 Scarface starring Paul Muni as Tony Camonte was set in Chicago, while the 1983 Scarface remake followed Al Pacino's Tony Montana as he rose to become one of Miami's most feared criminal leaders. No other details about this new version were given, aside from the Los Angeles setting.

Martin Bregman, who produced the 1983 remake, is producing with Global Produce's Marc Shmuger and Bluegrass Films' Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark. »

Scarface Remake Says Hello To Scribe Jonathan Herman

18 March 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Gangster classic Scarface is getting a reboot over at Universal, and audiences are today one step closer to again saying hello to Tony Montana’s little friend now that the studio has tapped Straight Outta Compton screenwriter Jonathan Herman to script.

Herman will be working from previous drafts by Paul Attanasio and Suicide Squad director David Ayer, both of whom approached the remake as a fresh, new take on the immigrant-centric story. Though the 1983 pic, also from Universal, focused on Cuban refugee Tony Montana (Al Pacino), who ended up in 1980s Miami with nothing but fought his way to the top of a drug empire, the new Scarface has been moved to Los Angeles in hopes of setting the film apart. Once again, though, the remake will tell the story of an immigrant who became a criminal kingpin.

Universal has been relying on Herman heavily of late. In addition to »

Modern-Day 'Scarface' Remake Set in Los Angeles Gets Green Light

18 March 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Perhaps the bloodiest rags-to-riches story in cinema history, the saga of Scarface has twice been shown on the silver screen, first with Paul Muni in the role of the criminally savvy immigrant shooting his way to the American Dream, then 50 years later with Al Pacino portraying Tony Montana in the classic Brian De Palma-directed, Oliver Stone-penned version. Now, Universal has announced plans to bring the Scarface story to modern times with a new film penned by Straight Outta Compton screenwriter Jonathan Herman, The Hollywood Reporter writes.

Straight Outta Compton writer to draft the new remake of Scarface

18 March 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Scarface is one of the best crime movies in Hollywood history. The question is whether you think it is Brian De Palma's 1983 version starring Al Pacino as a Cuban immigrant turned crimelord or the 1932 Howard Hawks version starring Paul Muni as an Italian immigrant turned crimelord. In fact, you may have a third version to choose from since The Hollywood Reporter revealed a new take on the gangster story is moving forward. Universal has teased a potential remake for years but now »

Jonathan Herman Rewriting New Scarface

18 March 2015 7:06 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Although it risks the ire of anyone who has the image of Al Pacino as Tony Montana burned into their brains, Universal is firmly pushing ahead on a third stab at Scarface, the tale of an immigrant to America chasing success by any means necessary. The studio has now hired Straight Outta Compton co-writer Jonathan Herman to take the latest crack at the script.This version of a tale told previously by Howard Hawks in 1932 and Brian De Palma in 1983 will focus on a Mexican arrival into the Us who will go to any lengths to pursue the American Dream. His route is via the Los Angeles criminal underworld as he rises steadily through power and violence. The film will explore his physical and emotional wounds, and the role they had to play in making him the man he becomes. Herman, who has also contributed keyboard action to the studio »

Star Wars Actor Ford Injured in Plane Accident in Los Angeles Area

5 March 2015 4:43 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

Giorgio Moroder's working on new Tron game - movie sequel on the way?

17 February 2015 1:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

According to Scarface composer Giorgio Moroder, there's a new Tron game on the way, and he's writing the music with Skrillex...

Italian electronic composer Giorgio Moroder's music was all over the place in the 70s and 80s, from his disco hits like I Feel Love (which he produced for Donna Summer) to his score for Brian De Palma's Scarface.

In a recent interview, Moroder's revealed that he's working on a new Tron game - one as yet unannounced by Disney. The music, he says, could also have the involvement of singer-songwriter-producer Skrillex.

"I'm going to meet Skrillex next week when I'm back," Moroder told Clash Music. "I'm doing music for a game for Disney's Tron. We have about five themes, electronic stuff and let's see if he's interested in remixing or re-working one of the songs."

10 February 2015 3:56 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Going to the cinema and watching films is a great way to engross yourself in a by-gone era you were never fortunate enough to witness first hand. The director’s portrayal of different time periods through the storylines, characters and artistic impression is one of the reason by the movie industry is thriving. With releases depicting the Roman, Cowboy and Prohibition eras, the casino industry has been an ever changing frontier on the silver screen.

To give you a better idea, here are a few films showcasing some of the most iconic casino periods:

The Roman Senator Marcus Licinius Crassus forces Spartacus into battle, »
