McAdams Joins DePalma's "Passion"

15 December 2011 9:56 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Rachel McAdams is in talks to star in Brian De Palma's $20 million thriller "Passion" reports Thompson on Hollywood.

A remake of Alain Corneau's recent French murder tale "Crime d’Amour", the original followed an older female executive (Kristin Scott Thomas) who takes revenge on her protege (Ludivine Sagnier). De Palma's take however swaps out the protege for a boss who has stolen the woman's idea.

The aim is to do his trademark eroticism meets Hitchcock-style suspense akin to De Palma's "Dressed to Kill" and "Body Double". If McAdams joins she'll be re-teaming with her "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows" co-star Noomi Rapace on the film which begins shooting March 5th in Berlin. Said Ben Said ("Carnage") is producing.

Top Five Directors Influenced by Hitchcock - Alfred Hitchcock Biopic Moving Forward

7 December 2011 3:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It looks like the long-gestating Alfred Hitchcock biopic is finally moving forward. THR reports that Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho will be directed by Sasha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) and is being set up at Fox Searchlight. Anthony Hopkins is attached to play Hitchcock and Helen Mirren, who will play the filmmaker's wife, Alma Reville.

If you read the site you know that Alfred Hitchcock is one of my favorite directors so I decided to put together a list of my Top Five Directors That Have Been Influenced By Alfred Hitchcock:

5. David Lynch

When I watched Twin Peaks and his films like Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive I felt like I was seeing so many elements of Hitchcock in them.

4. M. Night Shymalan

Just about every movie Shyamalan has done, could have been done better by Hitchcock. The Village, Unbreakable or Lady in the Water for instance. »

Sienna Miller Nails "Hitchcock" For BBC 2

4 December 2011 7:20 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Actress Sienna Miller ("Factory Girl") has been cast to play real life actress 'Tippi Hedren', (female lead of director Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds") in what is being described as a 'harrowing drama' for BBC 2, focusing on Hedren, "...who was the victim of a twisted and obsessive infatuation by Alfred Hitchcock".

"The Girl", written by Gwyneth Hughes, to be aired in 2012, conveys the supposed harassment the 62-year-old film director inflicted on the 31-year-old , regarded as the last of the 'Hitchcock Blondes'.

Hitchcock, who made film stars out of blonde actresses Grace Kelly, Kim Novak and Eva Marie Saint, cast unknown model Hedren in "The Birds" (1963), after spotting her in a TV commercial for a diet drink on NBC's "The Today Show" in 1962.

"...he soon became obsessed with her and began trying to control all aspects of her life, bombarding her with unwanted gifts and even forbidding her to »

Iconic movie scene: The Untouchables’ Union Station shoot-out

16 November 2011 3:54 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Brian De Palma directed one of the finest sequences of his career in The Untouchables. Ryan takes a look at its Union Station shoot-out…

Brian De Palma's talent often shines brightest in self-contained set-pieces. Think back to the gory fireworks of Carrie, the extraordinarily excessive concluding shoot-out in Scarface, the pool-room stand-off in Carlito’s Way, or even the spectacular exploding John Cassavetes in his seldom discussed 1978 thriller, The Fury. These sequences exemplify De Palma’s brilliance as a creator of suspense or shock – a master of composing, manipulating and assembling images for maximum effect.

For me, that mastery reached its peak in one specific (and obvious) moment in The Untouchables. The movie as a whole ranks alongside Scarface and Carlito’s Way as one of De Palma’s most satisfying mainstream thrillers. But in a film full of stand-out scenes, it’s the Union Station sequence that is inarguably the most memorable. »

Blu-Ray Review: Controversial ‘Dressed to Kill,’ ‘Straw Dogs’

14 September 2011 12:21 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – At first glance, Brian De Palma’s “Dressed to Kill” and Sam Peckinpah’s “Straw Dogs” may seem to have little in common beyond a studio and a need to be on Blu-ray. It’s common for that to the be the Only link (such as when “Scary Movie 2” and “Trainspotting” hit the format next week…come back for coverage). But these two actually have more in common than just a company and a spiffy new transfer. They’re a pair of controversial thrillers from two of the most interesting directors of their era. And with the remake of “Straw Dogs” about to open on Friday, perhaps it’s time we revisit them.

Dressed to Kill

Blu-Ray Rating: 4.5/5.0

It might be considered logical to start with the source material for the new remake, but I’d like to start with the superior film. That’s right, “Dressed to Kill »

The cast and crew of Scarface: where are they now?

7 September 2011 3:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Out this week on Blu-ray, the Brian De Palma’s gangster picture Scarface remains a classic. We find out what its cast and crew got up to in the years after its release...

Despite the iconic image of its star, Brian De Palma’s gangster epic Scarface has far more going for it than just Al Pacino’s megawatt performance as Cuban drug lord, Tony Montana.  

Memorably scripted by Oliver Stone and boasting a fine yet often overlooked ensemble cast, Scarface is a big movie in every sense. But what happened to the key players, both in front of and behind the camera, once the fake gunfire faded and the theatrical blood was washed away? Join us as we find out.

Brian De Palma

A part of the New Hollywood generation of directors, De Palma had already scored several critical and commercial hits, including Carrie, Phantom Of The Paradise, Dressed To Kill and Blow Out, »

Summer Movies We Love: Mission: Impossible

24 August 2011 8:33 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Your mission, if you choose to accept it… During an undercover mission in Prague, Imf agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) witnesses his spy team picked off one by one—including his mentor and friend, Jim Phelps (Jon Voight). With the blame of sabotage and treason on his head, Hunt goes on the run to clear his name, entrap the real conspirators and deliver the perfect dose of tentpole bravado. Why We Love It Whether they’re appropriate viewing for young persons or not, summer blockbusters always get a pass from parental units. They’re traditionally flashy, shallow and simple enough to play to a broad audience—the perfect family experience. Ten year olds and fifty year olds alike can find enjoyment in an alien invasion spectacle or a terrifying disaster pic. That’s what we get in the summer and it’s welcomed. So when Brian De Palma‘s Mission: Impossible crept into theaters in the summer »

Happy 54th Birthday, Melanie Griffith! Here are 5 of Her Underrated Roles

9 August 2011 4:30 PM, PDT | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

Body Double came out 27 years ago, but it's still a little weird to realize that its one-time ingenue Melanie Griffith is 54 years old. The woman who picked up an Oscar nod for playing the defiant Tess McGill in Mike Nichols' Working Girl has a pretty solid filmography otherwise, including a few good flicks you probably missed or -- more likely -- forgot. In honor of her birthday, click ahead for a rundown of five underrated movies where Griffith also did a helluva good job of letting the river run. »

30 Movie Posters That Really Blatantly Emphasize Boobs

28 July 2011 9:45 AM, PDT | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

If there’s one iron-clad rule in marketing, movies or otherwise, it’s “Sex Sells.” If there is another ironer-cladder rule in marketing, it’s “People Notice Boobs.” Or to take the advice one step further, “Boobs boobs boobs.” You are now all licensed postermakers. The new sideboob poster for Sarah Michelle Gellar’s show Ringer got me thinking (first about boobs and then) “What are the all-time most blatant uses of boobs in posters?” From posters entirely centered around the lead actresses’ cleavage to subtler posters that still go out of their way to make sure those boobs are clearly noticeable, here’s a list of The 30 Most Blatant Uses Of Boobs In Movie Posters: 1. Cruel Intentions 2. Romance And Cigarettes 3. L.A. Confidential 4. I Know What You Did Last Summer 5. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer 6. Bandidas 7. Step Up 8. Step Up 2 9. Blue Crush 10.

Robert Pattinson Won’t Meet Prince William & Kate Middleton — He Isn’t Attending BAFTAs!

1 July 2011 8:16 AM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Rob did not make the list of 42 ‘Brits to Watch,’ so it looks like he will not be seeing Will and Kate at next weekend’s La ceremony.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will not get a chance to rub elbows with Prince William and Kate Middleton it seems as Rob is not on the list of 42 ‘Brits to watch’ being honored July 9 in Los Angeles. So sad!

The list of Brits attending the event actually focuses on more emerging talent, so it seems like Rob may be too big to have qualified, being passed over instead for more up and coming stars like Juno Temple and Talulah Riley.

So HollywoodLifers, are you upset Rob and Kristen won’t meet the royals?

Kristen Stewart was back at the yoga studio June 30, enjoying a class at the super swank RiseMovement in Los Angeles!

Good thing she has so much practice with those Breaking Dawn stunts!

K-Stew, 21, participated in Vinyasa Flow Yoga with an instructor named Claire June 28 as well a source told HollywoodLife. The class itself is very small, inside an intimate studio which holds no more than 20 people. Other people in the class said she was very down-to-earth and friendly — and she didn’t bring up Rob, 25, at all. Instead, the other enthusiasts said she was very flexible and focused on getting her positions right, »

Taylor Lautner Trying Out For NFL — Will He Leave Hollywood For Good?

30 June 2011 11:08 AM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Taylor may be putting that muscle of his to use with the news the Twilight hunk may be trading in his acting shoes for a gig handling the pigskin!

Taylor Lautner is going pro — for a video that is! Funny or Die tweeted June 30, “Why is Taylor Lautner trying out for the NFL?!? Find out next Wednesday on Funny Or Die #FootballOrDie.” They also included a photo of the actor with some rather strapping hunks — let’s hope Taylor didn’t have to go against these muscle heads!

Taylor fans will have to wait until July 6 to see the video, no doubt humorously promoting Taylor’s muscular physique and role in the upcoming Abduction, but from the looks of this photo even Taylor may be too tiny for the pros.

What do you think HollywoodLifers — could Taylor make it in the NFL?

Gwyneth Paltrow Goes Topless & Shows Off Her Stunning Figure In ‘Vanity Fair’!

30 June 2011 7:51 AM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Gwyneth is notorious for being incredibly health conscious and her hard work is clearly paying off. Is this the best she’s ever looked?

By looking at this photo of Gwyneth Paltrow, 38, would you ever be able to tell that she’s had two kids? Gwyneth stripped down to nothing but a Louis Vuiton necklace and fishnet tights for the July issue of Vanity Fair — and she looks unbelievable!

The actress who started Goop, a website dedicated to healthy living works out with well-known trainer Tracy Anderson, and reportedly gets up at 4:30Am daily to exercise. Now that’s commitment.

“I’m really not a morning person at all,” Gwyneth recently revealed. “It is just sheer determination. I’m very strict with myself. When I practice six days a week and eat clean food, I feel much better.”

It’s clearly paying off. Gwyneth has two adorable children, Apple, »

Take Three: Carla Gugino

19 June 2011 12:40 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Craig here with Take Three. Today: Carla Gugino

Take One: Snake Eyes (1998)

Gugino was underused as the social worker in The Lookout, underdressed and all too briefly seen as the parole officer in Sin City, and under De Niro as a delectable detective in Righteous Kill. But one of her earlier roles as the mysterious ringside blonde in Brian De Palma’s Vegas boxing noir Snake Eyes gave her plenty of room to make a dent. There’s a killing about to happen at a big boxing match but is she in on the missile-based murder conspiracy? She’s certainly the focus of maniacally charged Nicolas Cage’s attention – and, by association, ours. Snake’s tricky structure and multiple viewpoints (especially the famous opening tracking shots) allow Gugino to play fast and loose with her character, Julia Costello, who ultimately, like all desperate women of noir, isn’t quite who we think she is. »
