NY Theater Awards Season Heats Up With Drama Desk Nominations

25 April 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The Drama Desk announced nominations this morning for the 59th edition of its awards ceremony, which will take place June 1 at The Town Hall in NYC. The group, which includes writers, editors, academics and others, can take credit for its refusal to segregate Broadway from its off- and off-off- siblings, and therefore reflects a wider range of choices (and quality) than the Theater District-only Tonys. (The nominations also guarantee the group a high-profile in display advertisement in the run-up to the Tony Awards.) And so, for example, the competition for Best Musical includes not only Broadway’s Rocky, Aladdin, The Bridges Of Madison County, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and A Gentleman’s Guide To Love And Murder but also the Public Theater’s well-received productions of Fun Home and Love’s Labour’s Lost. Best Play nominees include Broadway’s Outside Mullingar and All The Way as well as five plays presented off-Broadway. »

'Congo' Director To Helm Shipwreck Drama 'The Longest Night'

22 April 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Frank Marshall is best known as a producer, having served as such on such beloved films as Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Gremlins, The Goonies and Back to the Future. Though he's helmed a number of feature films, he is far less distinguished as a director. That's because he's responsible for Arachnophobia, Alive, Congo and most recently the 2011 sled-dog adventure Eight Below. But the lack of prestige pics hasn't deterred Paramount Pictures from picking Marshall to helm their upcoming shipwreck drama The Longest Night. THR reports Marshall has signed on to helm The Longest Night and will be working with a screenplay penned by Jonathan Lemkin, the screenwriter behind The Devil's Advocate and the Mark Wahlberg-fronted crime-drama Shooter. The new drama will be based on a 2008 GQ article by Sean Flynn. Here's the first paragraph of the piece that inspired the film: "One Easter Sunday, the Alaska »

Frank Marshall to Direct Shipwreck Drama 'The Longest Night'

21 April 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Frank Marshall has signed on to direct the shipwreck drama The Longest Night for Paramount Pictures, marking his first directorial project since Eight Below.

The project was set up through Conde Nast Entertainment, a company which launched specifically to develop stories from their magazines for movie and TV adaptations. This story is based on a December 2008 GQ article by Sean Flynn, which chronicles the true story of an Alaskan trawler, which sank in 6,000-foot deep waters on Easter Sunday in 2008. The ship went down 180 miles off the Alaskan coast, carrying 47 crew members, 42 of which were rescued by the Coast Guard, despite facing nearly insurmountable obstacles like 15-foot swells.

Jonathan Lemkin (Jonathan Lemkin, Lethal Weapon 4) wrote the adapted screenplay, with Frank Marshall also producing alongside Conde Nast's Dawn Ostroff and Jeremy Steckler. No production schedule was given.

Frank Marshall Directing The Longest Night

21 April 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Though he’s more usually found working as one of the best-known producers in the film industry, Frank Marshall has occasionally stepped behind the camera to make his own projects, directing the likes of Eight Below, Arachnaphobia and Alive. He’ll channel the spirit of that real-life latter outing for a new project, shipwreck tale The Longest Night.Paramount has bought the rights to Sean Flynn’s 2008 GQ article, which chronicles a Coast Guard rescue operation that braved seemingly impossible odds. An Alaskan trawler sank on Easter Sunday of that year, pitching its 47-strong crew into frigid waters 6,000 feet deep and more than 180 miles from the shore. With 15-foot swells hampering their job, the Coast Guard team still managed to rescue 42 of the souls on the stricken boat.Jonathan Lemkin, who has written such films as Lethal Weapon 4 and Shooter, adapted the script, which Marshall will shoot assuming he »

First Look: Jason Clarke in Everest

12 February 2014 12:56 PM, PST | | See recent JoBlo news »

Did anyone see that movie with Ethan Hawke called Alive? Any time a film about hiking comes up, my mind immediately goes to this. Then I think of cannibalism, and then I.m creeped out. Good thing is that I.m pretty sure I can watch Everest without worrying about any decisions surrounding devouring the flesh of others. However, it is the rather sad true story about an expedition on Mount Everest that left eight hikers dead. The film is based on author John Krakauer's Into Thin Air. Krakauer »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #161. Patricia Riggen’s The 33

6 February 2014 8:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The 33

Director: Patricia Riggen

Writers: Mikko Alanne, Michael John Bell, Craig Borten, Jose Rivera

Producers: Robert Katz, Edward McGurn, Mike Medavoy

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Rodrigo Santoro, Antonio Banderas, Cote de Pablo, James Brolin, Juliette Binoche, Gabriel Byrne, Lou Diamond Phillips, Naomi Scott, Bob Gunton, Kate del Castillo

The gamble with depicting true-event miraculous survival stories is that it either becomes an ensemble, survival film (here we’re thinking a la Frank Marshall’s Alive replacing snow with cramped spaces or it abides to bold visceral and atmospheric choices a la 127 Hours. Coming off a major flop with Girl in Progress, Patricia Riggen is likely not stuck with a Hollywoodize the Chilean event mandate, and if Juliette Binoche onboard with a breathing a sign of relief.

Gist: Based on the real-life event, when a gold and copper mine collapses, it traps 33 miners underground for 69 days.

This Week on Stage: Debra Messing's Broadway debut and Christopher Plummer in L.A.

25 January 2014 5:00 AM, PST | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Two-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper announced this week (in an EW exclusive) that he’ll be returning to Broadway this fall to star in a revival of The Elephant Man opposite Patricia Clarkson and Alessandro Nivola. (Yes, it sounds like a stretch for People’s former Sexiest Man Alive — especially since Bernard Pomerance’s play does not require any prosthetics for the title role.) The David Byrne-Fatboy Slim musical Here Lies Love, which made EW’s Top 10 list last year, will return to the Public Theater in March for an open-ended run. And there were a handful of notable openings on both coasts, »
