Inside ‘Billy Lynn’s’ Troubled Walk to the Big Screen: Ang Lee and Tom Rothman Duke it Out (Exclusive)

4 November 2016 4:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ang Lee is known for being a gentle spirit with few enemies in Hollywood. But underneath his calm demeanor is a spine of steel, colleagues say. That side of the two-time Oscar winning director was on full display during the punishing shoot of his latest endeavor, “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk,” which opens in limited release next week.

Lee and Tom Rothman, the hard-charging movie chief of Sony Pictures, clashed regularly during filming and in post-production, according to insiders, on the roller-coaster production with a $40 million pricetag (after tax credits). Many of their most heated discussions stemmed from Lee’s decision to shoot the Iraq war picture (based on a 2012 best-selling novel) in 120 frames-per-second, a new record for a big screen feature (most movies are shot at 24 frames-per-second, while Peter Jackson and James Cameron have dabbled in 48 frames-per-second).

Rothman wasn’t sure about the high-definition glisten that resulted from »

James Schamus: Gulf can learn from China's box-office boom

5 March 2016 11:53 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

James Schamus delivers masterclass in Doha, touching on the need to build a movie-going culture in the Gulf and how Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon established the modern international blockbuster.

James Schamus said the Gulf region could learn from China’s theatrical growth, during his masterclass at the Doha Film Institute’s Qumra festival on Saturday.

The American producer, writer, distribution executive and director was asked about last week’s deal for Doha-based beIN Media Group to acquire Miramax and said it “could be a great deal” depending on the price paid.

He noted that much of the 600-plus films in the Miramax library would be locked into licensing deals already around the globe, but depending on when those deals are up for renewal and what other rights can be exploited, “if the price point was right, it’s a great way to get into the game because you are sitting on top of so much intellectual property »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Spa Night’

28 January 2016 10:06 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Struggling with not only his sexuality but also his identity as a young Korean-American, the closeted son of immigrant parents turns to Los Angeles’ cruisy Korean sauna scene in hopes of answering where he belongs in “Spa Night.” While his parents enjoy body scrubs and shaved ice, 18-year-old David Cho (Joe Seo) seeks forbidden thrills amid the steam — although first-time writer-director Andrew Ahn has approached the subject tastefully enough that middle-aged women (identifying with his exasperated mother, stuck trying to do right by both her drunkard husband and distracted son) may actually get more out of the movie than gay audiences.

Shot on real Koreatown locations — and featuring mostly Korean dialogue — the low-key exercise represents a valuable cultural artifact, despite its limited commercial prospects: Located just under Hollywood’s nose, it depicts one of Los Angeles’ most vibrant immigrant communities, taking place in the Korean restaurants, churches, karaoke bars and, »
