James Schamus readies directing debut

12 November 2014 10:39 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Former Focus Features CEO has written screenplays and directed a short but never a feature —- now that is about to change with his Philip Roth adaptation Indignation.

Likely Story is attached to produce and James Schamus will serve as a producer alongside Anthony Bregman.

Production is set to commence in summer 2015 in New York on the 1951-set story of the idealistic son of a kosher butcher who leaves New Jersey for a conservative Ohio college where he battles anti-semitism, sexual repression and lusts after a troubled girl.

Avy Eschenasy and Stefanie Azpiazu will serve as executive producers on Indignation for Likely Story.

“Marcus Messner is an extraordinary character, heartbreakingly open and alive, and Anthony Bregman is an extraordinary producer, heartstoppingly economical,” said Schamus. “Bringing them together for my first feature as a director is as felicitous a match as I could ever hope for.”

Bregman added: “It’s been two decades since I met and first »

18 September 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Tom Rothman’s TriStar Productions and Film4 announced today that the three-time Oscar-winner Ang Lee has chosen an adaptation of Ben Fountain’s acclaimed novel Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk as his next film, his first since winning the Academy Award for directing the groundbreaking Life of Pi

The film will be produced by Lee, Ink Factory’s Stephen CornwellRhodri Thomas and Simon Cornwell and by Film4, who originally optioned the book.  Simon Beaufoy wrote the script. TriStar has been developing the project with Film4 and Ink Factory since opening its doors at the end of last year. Tessa Ross, who oversaw Film and Drama for Film4 until recently being named to run the UK’s National Theatre, was instrumental on behalf of that studio.

Making the movie for TriStar returns Lee to the Sony Pictures umbrella, where he enjoyed great success with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Sense and Sensibility. »

Excerpt: Ted Hope Memoir Relives Good Machine Days With Schamus And Linde

6 September 2014 4:54 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Ted Hope partnered with James Schamus and David Linde in Good Machine, the prolific director-centric indie company behind Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Y Tu Mama Tambien, In The Bedroom, Brokeback Mountain, Happiness, The Ice Storm and The Brothers McMullen. In this excerpt from his new book Hope For Film (Soft Skull Press), Hope writes about that seminal moment when the indie business changed and larger companies looked to swallow the prestige film factories. The principals all went in exceptional directions after Good Machine was swallowed by Universal Pictures back in 2000: Schamus ran Focus Features with Linde before the latter became Universal Pictures co-chairman; Hope formed This Is That with future taste making producers Anne Carey and Anthony Bregman. Here, Hope, who is currently CEO of film streaming platform Fandor, describes the feeding frenzy for Good Machine, and how the principals tried to better capitalize a company while navigating the collision between indies and studios. »

Film Review: ‘Tasting Menu’

22 April 2014 2:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

No one succumbs to a shrimp allergy or suffers violent gastrointestinal distress in “Tasting Menu,” but everyone assembled for this relentlessly mediocre ensemble dramedy seems to be having a fairly wretched time all the same, the audience not least of all. Bringing together some of the least compelling dinner guests in recent memory at a world-class restaurant that’s about to permanently close its doors, this blandly seriocomic misfire from Spanish co-writer/director Roger Gual is too lazy to rise to the level of farce, too banal and insincere to work as drama. Truly neither fish nor fowl, it’s unlikely to tempt any but the most undiscerningly middlebrow of arthouse audiences in limited theatrical release.

Gual and Javier Calvo’s script draws an unsubtle parallel between Chakula, the Catalonian coastal restaurant where the film is almost entirely set, and El Bulli, the real-life molecular gastronomy powerhouse that closed its »

Directors Zhang Yimou, Ang Lee Talk Censorship, Hollywood Partnerships at Nyu Event

28 March 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

East met east Thursday night in New York as directors Ang Lee and Zhang Yimou took to the stage for an intimate dialogue about their lives and careers, organized by New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts and Beijing-based online video portal LeTV, whose movie arm LeVision Pictures produced Zhang’s latest film, “Coming Home.”

It was a fascinating meeting of the minds between Zhang (pictured), who began his career as the oft-banned enfant terrible of the “fifth generation” of mainland Chinese filmmakers before going on to direct the international blockbuster “Hero” as well as the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics; and the Taiwan-born Lee, himself an Nyu-Tisch grad, who started out in the American indie cinema of the early 1990s and has since climbed the Hollywood A-list with his double Oscar wins for “Brokeback Mountain” and “Life of Pi.”

CAAMFest Week Two Yields Ang Lee Tribute, Great Docs, an Oscar Contender and More (Clips)

27 March 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Between its two weekends, CAAMFest adheres to a civilized program of evening screenings that begin at 6 pm or later and encourage you to see one or two movies an evening -- civilized, except for the fact that driving over the bridge from the East Bay in order to arrive in Japantown by showtime required an hour.  I planned to leave earlier in order to savor a bowl of freshly-made noodles at the delightful Suzu Noodle House right next door to the Kabuki, as well as cut down on the actual drive time, but that never happened.  I was lucky enough to grab a package of gyoza from the takeout area of the excellent Nijiya Market, halfway in-between the Kabuki and the New People Cinema. And I needed it for Monday's first film, Ang Lee's 1994 "Eat Drink Man Woman," charmingly introduced by Ted Hope -- erstwhile Executive Director of the San Francisco Film Society, »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Chef’

8 March 2014 12:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Foodies who feasted on “Big Night,” “Babette’s Feast” and “Eat Drink Man Woman” may flock to “Chef,” a lightweight but high-calorie confection in which the actors often run the risk of being upstaged by all manner of scrumptious-looking cuisine. Written and directed by Jon Favreau, who also stars as a professionally frustrated chef who earns a second helping of happiness while operating a food truck, this amiably rambling dramedy will play best with audiences primed to go with the flow of its leisurely pacing while enjoying the cross-country ride. And, of course, savoring the views of that tempting grub.

The slightly longish setup establishes Carl Casper (Favreau) as a stressed-for-success master chef in a trendy Los Angeles restaurant where he is absolute master of his kitchen — as long as he pleases the establishment’s demanding owner (Dustin Hoffman). When an even more demanding restaurant blogger (Oliver Platt) pans Casper »
