Paradigm Signs Joe Johnston

26 August 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Joe Johnston has signed with Paradigm, reuniting the filmmaker with his longtime reps Adam Kanter and Martin Spencer. The writer-director moves from Wme, where he signed in March as Kanter and Spencer were leaving Resolution. He worked with Kanter for years at CAA and then left to join the dealmaker at Resolution, where it didn’t work out. The prolific writer-director is quite a catch for Paradigm; Johnston’s hits include Captain America: The First Avenger, October Sky, Jurassic Park III, Jumanji and Honey, I Shrunk The Kids. He stepped up to direct after winning an Oscar for Visual Effects for his work on Raiders Of The Lost Ark and also did the visual effects on such blockbusters as the original Star Wars trilogy, Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, and The Rocketeer.

Johnston is developing the sci-fi thriller Extinction for Good Universe and Gotti: In The Shadow Of My Father for Relativity. »

An emotional 'Ask Drew' looks back at the life and work of the great Robin Williams

13 August 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Suicide is a permanent solution to temporary problems." - Robin Williams, "World's Greatest Dad" This is a very emotional "Ask Drew." This is, I would suspect, the closest you're ever going to see to me losing it on camera completely. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when there was a Robin Williams question, since it's still so fresh and so raw for so many people, but I couldn't have known just how hard it would be to talk about him. I mean, I have stared at the blinking cursor on my blank document page for almost two days now, grappling with one question:  how in the hell do you even remotely begin to sum up someone as huge as Robin Williams? We could start from the personal angle. I could tell you about the occasional e-mails I got from him when I was at Ain't It Cool, or the »

Flickering Myth writers pay their respects to Robin Williams

The Flickering Myth writing staff pay their respects to Robin Williams

Following the tragic news yesterday, the Flickering Myth writing staff remeber one of the greatest comedic performers of our generation…

Matt Spencer-Skeen: True comic genius, who transcended generations and ages. Will be missed sorely.

Vilordsutch: This man has been with me since I discovered his manic and quick-witted comedy, as a very small child, with Mork and Mindy and I’ve stayed with him (through his career) ever since. Such a sad thing knowing his mental state had given him this only option. My thoughts are with his family.

Oliver Davis: For some reason I’m pining most for Jack, Patch Adams and Bicentennial Man today. Although not his critically lauded works, worn-out VHS copy scenes keep playing in my mind’s eye. I watched all three when I was in my very early teens and each made me weep heartily. »
