Blu-ray Review: ‘Spike Lee Joint Collection’ Releases Are Solid Starting Point

4 July 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Who of our modern filmmakers will justify lavish, career-spanning box sets in the next generation (presuming there is such a thing and we’re not 100% digital)? We’ve seen Oliver Stone, Martin Scorsese, and Alfred Hitchcock sets in recent years but who will get the same treatment in ten or twenty years?

One man who I’d love to see dissected from first film to last is the essential Spike Lee. He has had an undeniably spotty career with films both considered masterpieces and complete failures. But Spike is always working, always trying something new, always willing to challenge himself and the viewer. Did his “Oldboy” remake work? No. He picks himself up, dusts himself off, and gets back to it. Spike has been everywhere lately, promoting and discussing the 25th anniversary of his masterpiece, “Do the Right Thing,” and so someone figured it was a good time to release »

Glenn Close Heading to Sweden to Star in ‘The Wife’

16 May 2014 5:04 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Glenn Close will star in the title role of “The Wife,” based on Meg Wolitzer’s novel about a marriage collapsing during a journey to Scandinavia.

The film will be directed by Swedish director Bjorn Runge and shot in Sweden next winter and spring. Producers are Rosalie Swedlin for Anonymous Content together with Meta Louise Foldager for Meta Film Stockholm and Swedish producers Maria Dahlin and Gila Ulfung.

Producers are starting the process of casting the male lead.

Wolitzer’s novel, published in 2003, centers on a 64-year-old woman deciding to leave her novelist husband during a trip to receive the fictional Helsinki Prize. Jane Anderson’s adaptation shifts the setting to Stockholm during the couple’s journey to the Nobel Award ceremony in Stockholm.

The film will shoot primarily in Stockholm in both English and Swedish languages.

“The first time I read ‘The Wife,’ I was instantly inspired by the story of love, »

John Turturro Takes James Gandolfini Role In 'Criminal Justice' After Robert De Niro Exits

21 April 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When James Gandolofini suddenly and sadly passed away last year, a project that was unfortunately left in the lurch was HBO's "Criminal Justice." The show had already been through some development hurdles, with the network originally passing on the project, but later coming back on board when it was retooled as a limited series. And then things looked even better when Robert De Niro signed up to replace Gandolfini in the fall, but it looks like there's another casting switcheroo happening. De Niro has exited the show citing schedule problems, but the always reliable John  Turturro has stepped into the leading role. Penned by Richard Price ("Clockers," "The Wire"), with Steven Zaillian producing and directing the pilot of the seven-hour series, the remake of the BBC show will find Turturro playing an ambulance-chasing New York City attorney who decides to defend a Pakistani man accused of murdering a girl from »

19 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Divergent cast includes fan-favorite stars Maggie Q and Mekhi Phifer – who are both currently starring in hit television shows. Q, who leads as the title role in Nikita, is also known for her role in J.J. Abrams’ Mission Impossible III, in which she starred alongside Tom Cruise and in Live Free or Die Hard with Bruce Willis. A strong action star, Q is aptly cast as a divergent, Tori, an exotic tattoo artist who is in the faction Dauntless. She acts as a mentor to Tris (Shailene Woodley).

Phifer, whose character, Max is at the top of the Dauntless leadership, took a break from shooting the Showtime series, House of Lies to film Divergent in Chicago. His movie credits include: Spike Lee’s Clockers with Harvey Keitel and John Turturro, Dawn of the Dead ...

Spike Lee's gentrification rant – transcript: 'Fort Greene park is like the Westminster dog show'

27 February 2014 6:34 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Spike Lee's impassioned, off-the-cuff but persuasive speech against the transformation of Brooklyn by hipsters and wealthy arrivals raises key points about the tensions of gentrification – not least about respect. Here is the full transcript

• From Ruth Glass to Spike Lee: 50 years of gentrification

• The world's most expensive cities

More than perhaps any other film-maker, Spike Lee has made urban issues his bread and butter. So what to make of the director of Do the Right Thing and Clockers using an appearance at a black history month event at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn to rage against an audience member trying to argue for the benefits of gentrification?

Slamming the process as "Christopher Columbus syndrome" and accusing wealthier new arrivals of disrespecting the culture of the predominantly black areas that have been his stomping ground – such as changing neighbourhood names, cancelling a Michael Jackson tribute because of fears black »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #124. Daniel Espinosa’s Child 44

13 February 2014 7:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Child 44

Director: Daniel Espinosa

Writers: Richard Price

Producer: Summit Entertainment, Worldview Entertainment, Etalon Film, Scott Free Productions, Stillking Films

U.S. Distributor: Summit Ent/Lionsgate

Cast: Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman, Joel Kinnaman, Vincent Cassel, Jason Clarke, Paddy Considine

Based on the first novel from a popular trilogy, this sounds like a melding of John Le Carre and Stieg Larsson (of course, mainplayers Rapace and Oldman might be responsible for that ambiance as well). Helmed by Swedish director Daniel Espinosa, who received wide acclaim with his 2010 film, Easy Money, we’re hoping this gets more traction than his 2012 English language debut, Safe House. A killer (and very masculine) cast should make this one to watch for, though screenwriter Richard Price can be a bit iffy. He’s been working television since his last feature screenplay, which was 2006’s Freedomland…but we’re hoping this is the same caliber »

Six of the Best: The Directors – Spike Lee

9 January 2014 5:12 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Always outspoken, determined and confident – Spike Lee has been one of the most active and influential artists making movies in America for the past thirty years. Although it is important to mention his influence as an African-American filmmaker, he also stamped a style and tempo which snapped at the heels of narrative with colour, energy and bite. He has made films that were unanimously praised, caused debate and even ones that have been generally panned – but his films are never ignored.

When Sidney Poitier slapped actor Larry Gates in the 1967 film In the Heat of the Night, it was seminal – one of the first instances of a black man striking a white man on the silver screen. It jolted people and it mirrored a social spirit of a nation in a split instance, a way that cinema only can. But the man behind the camera, in the producers chair and »
