Fresh off receiving rave reviews for Flight, his first live-action film in over a decade, Robert Zemeckis has signed on to direct a narrative adaptation of the 2010 documentary Marwencol. While no offers have been made, the director is reportedly trying to lure in Leonardo DiCaprio to star.
The studio has also picked up the life rights of Mark Hogancamp, the subject of Jeff Malmberg's documentary. The original film followed Mark Hogancamp's long road to recovery after he was severely beaten by five teenagers, causing him to slip into a coma for nine days. When he came out of the coma, he had absolutely no memory of his life or friends and family members. He began constructing a one-sixth scale model of a World War II-era Belgian village in his backyard, with figures that resembled his friends, family members and even his attackers, which allowed him both to heal »
“It's my dance, and I have performed it with finesse and abandon with countless partners.” — Fiona Goode “I always respect a good, hard slap.” — Fiona Goode People, I have found the Seven Wonders, and they are all in this show. After two already-bonkers episodes, this latest installment — written by James Wong, who wrote “Home,” arguably the craziest episode of The X-Files — upped the ante even further, giving us at least three murders and a chance for every actress to shine bright like a cigarette. Let us proceed.Whatever you do, do not show Fiona Goode an Activia commercial. Girlfriend is not having this aging thing. Her sleepless nights of black negligees, pills, and booze make her flash back to her own Supreme teacher, Anna Leigh Leighton — played by none other than Stage Priestess Christine Ebersole (in a costume that is half Grey Gardens, half The Secret Garden).

New York -- The musical adaptation of Robert James Waller's best-selling novel The Bridges of Madison County, will come to Broadway in January 2014, staged by Tony-winning director Bartlett Sher.

The musical has a book by Pulitzer Prize winner Marsha Norman ('night, Mother, The Secret Garden) with music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years).

Back in February of 2012 we told you about a little indie flick called The Ghastly Love of Johnny X. Nobody heard us. Nobody listened. And now... well now the little flick has gone on to live in infamy!
CBS News is reporting that the Paul Bunnell directed film, starring Will Keenan and De Anna Joy Brooks as well as Creed Bratton ("The Office"), Reggie Bannister (Phantasm), Kate Maberly (The Secret Garden), Paul Williams (Phantom of the Paradise), and the late Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) in his final role, has gone on to become the lowest grossing film of 2012, raking in a whopping $117.00 at the box office! How much you wanna bet it goes on to make bank on home video and midnight screenings because of that?
The Ghastly Love Of Johnny X is a truly mad concoction – a mesmerizing big screen spectacular! Johnny X and his »

Check out this "60 Minutes" interview with the Dowager Countess herself, Maggie Smith. As Women and Hollywood's Melissa Silverstein notes, "There aren't many actresses as popular with the Harry Potter set as she is with the Masterpiece Theatre set." Now 78, Smith has won two Oscars, three Emmies and one Tony over the course of her illustrious career. Clips and trailers below of some career highlights, including "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie," "The Secret Garden," "Sister Act," "Gosford Park" and hands-down one of the best moments from the "Harry Potter" franchise -- when Professor McGonagall name-checks Voldemort. »

Guillermo Del Toro is just a producing machine. The latest film to be added to his list of upcoming productions is an adaptation of the popular 1911 novel The Secret Garden written by Frances-Hodgson Burnett. The story has of course been adapted a numerous amount of times, with my personal favourite being the 1993 version starring Maggie Smith. Del Toro will produce along side his Don’T Be Afraid Of The Dark collaborator Mark Johnson. Universal has recently picked up the rights to the children’s classic and hired Oscar nominated screenwriter Lucy Alibar, who has found recent success with Beasts Of The Southern Wild.
The story sees a recently orphaned girl sent to live on her uncle’s estate, only to find a magnificent garden that nobody knows about. One could even call it a secret. If anyone can give a fresh and original voice to such a familiar tale, it’s Del Toro and Alibar, »

The Secret Garden has been adapted on numerous past occasions for theatre, film and television. Kate Maberly, Andrew Knott and Dame Maggie Smith starred in a 1993 cinematic adaptation directed by Agnieszka Holland.
His next directorial venture will be Pacific Rim, which opens in the UK on July 12.
Watch a trailer for Pacific Rim below: »
Guillermo Del Toro loves new talent. He likes to take newcomers under his wing and offer them a chance to work with him. Beasts of the Southern Wild co-writer Lucy Alibar is his latest student. He’ll be producing her script for The Secret Garden. How sweet is that?
According to Deadline, Universal Pictures beat out four studios today and acquired a pitch for a new film version of the Frances Hodgson Burnett novel. Alibar will write the script, and Del Toro will produce along with Mark Johnson, who previously worked with him on Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark.
Before you get any ideas, Del Toro will not be directing. He’s way too busy with a bunch of other projects including Pacific Rim, Crimson Peak and Pinocchio. But Del Toro will work closely with Alibar to create the magical world of The Secret Garden. That kind of »

United in their love of stories about young girls retreating into magical worlds and having shitty guardians, Pan’s Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro and Beasts Of The Southern Wild co-writer Lucy Alibar are partnering on another adaptation of The Secret Garden for Universal. The project was originally intended for del Toro to direct, just long enough for everyone to have a good, hearty laugh about what has become an inherently sarcastic suggestion, given the list of things del Toro is attached to at any given moment. However, del Toro will still “guide Alibar creatively”—using a combination of electric »
I said it before, and I am saying it again. I suspect Guillermo del Toro has cloned himself. For all we know there are four or five Guillermos running around, making movies that scare the pants off of us, being charming in interviews, snacking on trail mix … The man is a horror-movie-making machine and he’s just added a new movie to his list: The Secret Garden. This time, he’s working with Beasts of the Southern Wild scribe Lucy Alibar and re-teaming up with his Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark co-producer Mark Johnson.
Yes, it’s that Secret Garden, the Frances Hodgson Burnett novel that was last adapted for screen by director Agnieska Holland in 1993. It’s the story of a young, lonely girl sent to live with her uncle who discovers a magical garden. Alienated, outcast children in a magical space that adults can’t find? »

The story follows an orphaned girl sent to live with her uncle who discovers a hidden garden containing magical secrets. With so many remakes of the film produced in the last century, they are planning their own original storyline that will be set in the American South, at the beginning of the twentieth century.
The latest adaptation of the story was directed by Agnieszka Holland back in 1993. No production schedule has been released. »
Ja from Mnpp here, taking a look at the news of the day - newly Oscar nominated writer Lucy Alibar, who adapted her play into the movie Beasts of the Southern Wild, has just been announced as the writer of a new movie adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's much loved (not to mention much adapted) 1911 serial-turned-novel The Secret Garden. For a hot minute it seemed as if Guillermo Del Toro was going to direct it, but he's too busy making giant robots fight giant monsters so he's just gonna produce.
The Secret Garden is about, well, a largely orphaned girl who gets left to her own devices amid overgrown nature, where she allows her imagination to run wild. Sound familiar? I just can't imagine how Alibar got the gig. Apparently the action is being shifted from England to "the American South at the turn of the 20th Century," as well. »
