Looking back at Michael Crichton's Runaway

29 July 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tom Selleck and Gene Simmons starred in Michael Crichton's 1984 sci-fi thriller, Runaway. Ryan looks back at a flawed yet intriguing film...

Late 1984 saw two killer robot movies make their debut in Us cinemas. You've probably heard of the first one, released in October: The Terminator, the film that launched the career of James Cameron and cemented Arnold Schwarzenegger's status as a movie star.

The second was Runaway, another sci-fi thriller that, in theory, could have been the bigger hit. It starred Tom Selleck and Kiss singer-bassist Gene Simmons. It was written and directed by Michael Crichton, the director of the superb Westworld and writer of such best-selling novels as The Andromeda Strain and The Terminal Man, both adapted into great films. Six years after Runaway, Crichton would write Jurassic Park, a book that is still sending ripples through pop culture today.

Runaway ended up making about $7m in »

The Princess Diaries 3 Not In Development

17 June 2015 11:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Update: Variety is saying that, contrary to The Tracking Board’s report, Disney is not currently developing a third installment in the Princess Diaries series. A conversation took place in which the future of the franchise was discussed, but nothing came out of it, and no screenwriter is attached. For now, at least, Genovia’s throne remains vacant.

More than a decade after the second entry in the series, Walt Disney Pictures is officially moving forward with The Princess Diaries 3.

The original, released in 2001, is credited with turning Anne Hathaway into a Hollywood star. Adapted from Meg Cabot’s bestselling Ya book of the same name, it followed a normal teenager named Mia Thermopolis, who is whisked away to the Kingdom of Genovia when she discovers that she is the heir to the throne.

The Princess Diaries was a commercial and critical success, pulling in more than $165 million worldwide and being dubbed a young-adult classic. »

Chris Eyre to direct ‘Soul Catcher’

15 June 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Producer Dimitri Villard, whose credits include Flight Of The Navigator and In Love And War, is moving ahead with his Frank Herbert adaptation with the hire of the Sundance-winning filmmaker.

Eyre (pictured) won the Sundance Audience Award and Filmmaker’s Trophy for his 1998 entry Smoke Signals and will direct from an adapted screenplay by John Sayles. Villard optioned the 1972 novel from the author’s estate late last year.

Soul Catcher charts the abuse of Native Americans and an activist’s attempt to even the score by kidnapping the son of a Washington politician.

“I’m so excited to have assembled this all-star team to translate Frank Herbert’s brilliant novel to the screen,” said Villard.

“There is no better director of Native American films than Chris; John has an incredibly rich history of writing socially important screenplays and Rene [Hayes] is hands-down the leading casting director of Native American films and actors.
