Terry Gilliam Crafting a Script Based on Paul Auster Novel ‘Mr. Vertigo’

28 July 2011 3:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Novelist Paul Auster has seen his work on screen through a variety of processes: The Music of Chance adapts his novel of the same name (not very well); Smoke and Blue in the Face are the product of a collaborative writing/directing process with Wayne Wang, and Mr. Wang also filmed The Center of the World, on which Mr. Auster was a story collaborator. So: several films, but few direct novel adaptations. That could be in part due to the fact that his books aren't quite straight fiction, but rather a blend of genre tropes, existential curiosity and magical realism. Not the easiest adaptations. Those elements also make up a good part of the ingredient list for Terry Gilliam's scripts, however, and so it makes sense that he is now writing a script based on Mr. Auster's novel Mr. Vertigo. Terry Gilliam recently said at  Q&A session, I got a book. »

Exclusive: First Look At Wayne Wang's 'Snow Flower And The Secret Fan'

9 March 2011 11:44 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Director Wayne Wang has never been a director that could be easily pigeonholed. He broke through with a trifecta of critical and arthouse faves with “The Joy Luck Club,” “Smoke” and “Blue In the Face,” but he’s also tackled more mainstream fare (”Maid In Manhattan,” “Last Holiday”) while still taking chances on ambitious independent pics (”The Center of the World”). So it's no surprise that his next effort, "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan," is another gear change for the director, a detailed period piece based on the novel by Lisa See that explores the relationship between two girls in… »

2 March 2011 6:30 AM, PST | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

Good morning to you on this very special day! No, not Gavin McLoed's [sic] 80th birthday, though that deserves recognition, I can't lie. But! Lou Reed was born 69 years ago today in Brooklyn, NY -- a location that would become the partial subject of his fantastic appearance in the 1995 ensemble-improv weird-out Blue in the Face. Let's reminisce and pay some much-deserved respect below. »

Wayne Wang To Direct Albert Einstein Biopic

11 February 2011 7:24 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Wayne Wang's career has certainly been eclectic. He broke through with a trifecta of critical and arthouse faves with "The Joy Luck Club," "Smoke" and "Blue In The Face" but he's also taken big swings into broad mainstream fare ("Maid In Manhattan," "Last Holiday") while still taking chances on ambitious independent pics ("The Center Of The World"). And the ever restless Wang is now switching things up again. Deadline reveals that Wang will next direct a biopic of famed theoretical physicist Albert Einstein. Working under the tentative title of "Einstein," the film has a script from Academy Award winner Ron… »
