Phenomenal Eye

31 August 2010 7:33 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Phenomenal View…

Malik Hassan Sayeed has shot countless music videos, a handful of feature films, and has moved in and out of directing projects, with a list of colleagues, ranging from the likes of Spike Lee to Stanley Kubrick.

From working on the crew for Malcolm X, to DPing his first feature film – that film being the visually audacious epic, Clockers, his visual style and sense has run the gamut.

Using a saturated tone for Spike, and a blurred, out-of-focus feel for Hype Williams, his eye experiments with how we view beauty through the lens.

He received the best cinematographer’s nomination from the Independent Spirit Awards for his work on Williams’ cult classic marvel Belly.

Having been given the opportunity to follow the likes of Ernest Dickerson, Barry Sonnenfeld, & Jan de Bont, Sayeed ventured into directing with a force; helming many music videos that burst with light through an array of shadows. »

Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver Join Jvcd Director’s The Cold Light of Day

2 August 2010 4:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver have joined the cast of Jcvd helmer  Mabrouk El Mechri's kidnapping thriller called The Cold Light of Day. Willis and Weaver join the previously announced Henry Cavill from The Tudors along for the ride. The plot follows a cocky young Wall Street trader whose family is kidnapped while vacationing in Spain. He's left with only a few hours to find them, he must unravel the government conspiracy, figure out the connection between their disappearance and his father's secrets. THR reports that Willis will play Cavill's father and Weaver will play the villain. The script was originally written by Scott Wiper and John Petro, and Richard Price (Clockers, The Wire) is doing a last 'production pass' on the recent draft. I'm excited by both Price and El Mechri's involvement in this project, although the plot logline sounds rather generic. The movie is gearing up to »

Henry Cavill Cast in ‘The Cold Light of Day,’ From the Director of Jcvd

30 July 2010 9:59 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

A lot of people might not recognize the name Mabrouk El Mechri, but I bet a lot of you recognize the name of his last film: Jcvd. He's finally about to follow up that film with a kidnapping thriller called The Cold Light of Day, which was announced earlier this year. And he's got Henry Cavill from The Tudors along for the ride. THR says the plot follows "a cocky young Wall Street trader who reluctantly vacations with his family in Spain. When his family is kidnapped, he is thrust into a government conspiracy and must unravel his father's darkest secret in order to save his loved ones." The script was originally written by Scott Wiper and John Petro, and Richard Price is doing a last 'production pass' on the recent draft. That's the Richard Price who wrote novels including Clockers and was a writer on The Wire, so let's »

Spike Lee Meets Nagasaki Deadline

28 June 2010 11:36 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Two years on from his Eastwood-baiting Miracle at St Anna, and four years after his last mainstream thriller Inside Man, Spike Lee is about to close a deal to direct Nagasaki Deadline, according to, er, Deadline. James Cameron and his Lightstorm Entertainment cohorts will be producing.The script by David and Peter Griffiths has been doing the rounds for several years. The story of an FBI agent racing against the clock to prevent a double home-soil terrorist attack was shelved by Fox after 9/11 (as, more temporarily, was David and Peter's Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle Collateral Damage). Resurrected more recently, it lost its director Martin Campbell to Green Lantern. A good opportunity for Lee then, whose reputation for being outspoken and difficult meant offers didn't exactly come flooding in after Inside Man, even though it performed well, box-office-wise.Lee as director-for-hire (Inside Man, Clockers) is admittedly not quite so interesting as the »

The code of silence is lifted

19 June 2010 6:46 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Remember this guy? He was a major player back in the day and, who knows, could be again. The film business doesn’t play by the usual rules. The guy is Monty Ross, Spike Lee’s former Morehouse College mate, and his film producer from the very early days of Joe’s Bed-Stuy Barbershop: We Cut Heads, through She’s Gotta Have It, to Malcolm X. His last film with Spike was Clockers, and after that they parted ways.

Ross’ resume has been pretty thin since then, producing the cable TV movie Keep The Faith Baby, about Adam Clayton Powell, with Harry Lennix; and in 2008 he directed and produced the low-budget indie, The Book, about a dying man, Seymour Butz (no doubt a play on the name Seymore Butts who’s a well known porn star and filmmaker), who follows his dream to create a book of erotic photography, in »

“Brooklyn Hearts Mj” May Be Spike Lee’s Next; “Inside Man 2″ Likely Dead

16 April 2010 10:15 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Word on the street is that Spike Lee’s next joint, tentatively titled, Brooklyn Hearts Michael Jackson, is actually a gentrification tale (despite its title), with Samuel L. Jackson, John Turturro, Julianne Moore, and Rosie Perez, already all lined up to star, with Anthony Mackie and Kerry Washington (who both starred in Spike’s horrid She Hate Me), also possibly being considered.

Spike did organize a Michael Jackson birthday extravaganza last summer (which I attended) in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, called “Brooklyn Loves Michael Jackson.

This is my first time hearing about this project, but, thankfully, The Playlist verifies its existence, claiming to have read a 4th draft of the film’s script, dated just a few months ago, and, well, they seem to like what they’ve seen, calling it “provocative,” and saying that it’s like Crooklyn, Clockers, and Do The Right Thing rolled into one, infused with music from Michael Jackson, »
