Twin Peaks Recap: Becky's Got a Gun

22 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A bumpy Twin Peaks this week. Surprise horror, painfully drawn out moments, and at least one big revelation: Bobby Briggs seems to be Becky’s father. And at some point Shelly and Bobby were married, as we now know that Shelly’s last name is Briggs (more on the state of that marriage in a moment). So yes, it would seem that I was wrong last week about Leo being Becky’s father (and perhaps wrong about Becky killing Leo). But I would like to remind you that Shelly is still wearing that mysterious ring on a chain around her »

‘Twin Peaks’ Review: Part 11 Puts a Funny Spin on David Fincher as Agent Cooper Edges Closer to Reality

23 July 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Twin Peaks: The Return” (2017), Season 3, Episode 11, “Part 11.”]

“Damn good” only begins to describe Part 11 of “Twin Peaks: The Return,” an episode in which a lot of pieces came together both for the series’ central mystery and within its hero’s restricted mind.

First, let’s address what’s in the box. For all the parodies and homages that reference David Fincher’s iconic scene in “Seven,” this one may take the cake– well, the pie. The long drive into the desert. The long row of telephone lines on the side of the road. A mysterious box. An unarmed man held at gunpoint. These are the same images that evoked trepidation in Fincher’s film, but Lynch created a playful tone for “Twin Peaks.”

Brad Pitt’s Top 7 Performances

19 July 2017 4:24 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Brad Pitt is one of the most confident actors of this day and he’s well known for a long list of memorable parts, like the extreme killer in Killing them Softly, the hardened eccentric living on the edge of society in Fight Club, and the frustrated father in Tree of Life. He’s a brilliant actor, he takes on the role of different characters exceptionally well, and that’s why he’s continually cast in more top-notch films. Below are seven of Pitt’s top acting performances, and fittingly enough one of them is in the film Se7en.

Martin Schoeller/ Corbis Outline

Thelma and Louise – 1991

Brad Pitt plays a smooth talking robber in his brief role as J.D. in Thelma and Louise. Sure he eventually robs Thelma after getting her to fall in love with him, but up until that point he’s highly charismatic, and manages to »

‘Game of Thrones’: Five Theories on Who Will Win and How It All Ends

14 July 2017 12:37 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Game of Thrones” is a show that’s always kept us on our toes, year after year, and that’s truer now that we’ve moved beyond adapting George R.R. Martin’s novels and into a 13-episode endgame, stretched across two seasons.

Now that we know how much time we have left in the Seven Kingdoms (at least until the spin-offs start) the question becomes, what will happen when the show ends? While IndieWire may not have the official answers, we have each given serious thought to possible conclusions.

Each member of the TV team has their own theories, based on their own personal opinions and expertise, but the fun thing about “Game of Thrones” is that anything could happen: The crazier the prediction, the more likely it could be right. Season 8 is going to be a doozy.

The man who nearly directed Seven

11 July 2017 10:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jul 12, 2017

How Ernest Dickerson nearly directed Seven, just as the film was about to be canned...

Having had what can best be described as an unpleasant experience making Alien 3, David Fincher was very picky when choosing his second film as director. He eventually opted for Seven, starring Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt, and the resulting film would set up the film career he’s had since. There’s still an argument that it’s his best film.

See related  Fargo season 3 episode 1 review: The Law Of Vacant Places

However, it wasn’t a movie he was originally set to direct.

Instead, Ernest Dickerson, who broke through with 1992’s Juice, was on the lookout for a horror film to make in the early 90s. On the Post Mortem podcast, he revealed that he changed agents, and “the first two scripts that they gave me… one was Surviving The Game. »

Hollywood Gang developing Second World War drama 'Kamikaze'

11 July 2017 1:43 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Film adaptation based on book by John Wukovits.

Gianni Nunnari’s Hollywood Gang have announced they are developing an adaptation of John Wukovits’ Hell From The Heavens: The Epic Story Of The USS Laffey And World War II’s Greatest Kamikaze Attack.

Rosalind Ross will write the adaptation under the working title of Kamikaze.

On April 16, 1945, the crewmen of the destroyer USS Laffey withstood an unrelenting kamikaze attack. After 80 minutes, 22 continuous air attacks and four direct bomb hits, six Japanese fighter planes crashed into the ship, setting the destroyer ablaze. Thirty-two men died and 71 were wounded that day.  

The ship’s captain Frederick Julian Becton refused to give up and he and his crew fought on and ultimately won the day, earning the Laffey the name ‘The Ship That Would Not Die.’

Nunnari will produce alongside Hollywood Gang’s Shannon Gaulding.  

Nunnari, best known for producing the thrillers Se7en, The Departed, and 300, is »

George Romero Talks ‘Road of the Dead,’ His Disdain for ‘World War Z’ and Why He Liked ‘La La Land’ More Than ‘Moonlight’

4 July 2017 3:31 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Half a century after “Night of the Living Dead,” George A. Romero still isn’t done with the genre he helped create.

His latest is “Road of the Dead,” an automotive take on the undead he produced and co-wrote with Matt Birman, who’s stepping into the director’s chair after serving as second-unit director on each of Romero’s last three “Dead” pictures. There’s just one problem: The project has set to secure financing.

Review: Edgar Wright's 'Baby Driver' is an Act of Clockwork Precision

26 June 2017 4:22 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The British writer-director behind the "Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy – consisting of Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007), and The World's End (2013) – and also the director behind 2010's Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Edgar Wright, is known for his unique, kinetic, energetic cinematic style. Unlike most comedy directors working today, Wright finds humor in the filmmaking, utilizing framing, lighting, mise-en-scène, camera movement, editing, and sound to pull as much comedy out of a scene as possible. With his latest film, Baby Driver, Wright has not only improved upon his signature style, but matured with it. Like David Fincher, Wright is honing his craft with every film he makes, relying less on his style and more on imbuing the style with substance. If his early works are similar to those of Fincher's (Se7en, The Game, Fight Club), then Baby Driver is his Zodiac — a disciplined and elegantly orchestrated thriller that feels both effortless and impossibly intricate. »

World War Z 2: David Fincher is definitely directing

22 June 2017 10:41 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jun 23, 2017

David Fincher will indeed be directing World War Z 2, and Brad Pitt is set to star.

Ever since it became clear that director Marc Foster and star/producer Brad Ptt didn’t get on when making the first World War Z movie, it was certain that any sequel would need a change of helmer. That’s not been the easiest of processes, though, as an assortment of faces have been linked with the film – with J A Bayona even signing on to make it at one point – before ultimately moving on.

A few months ago came the first hint though that David Fincher might be interested. Fincher, who’s worked with Pitt on Seven, Fight Club and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, hasn’t made a film since Gone Girl, although he’s had a fair amount of small screen work that he's been focusing on.

However, Paramount Pictures boss Jim Gianopulos has now confirmed that David Fincher is indeed working on the new World War Z movie. Chatting to The Hollywood Reporter, he said that the film was “in advanced development”, and that David Fincher was directing, with Brad Pitt returning to star.

The current release date for World War Z 2 is unknown, but it’s likely to arrive in cinemas in 2019. Production is expected to begin early next year.

David Fincher Officially Confirmed For World War Z 2; Paramount Targets Early 2018 Start

22 June 2017 12:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s going on a full year since David Fincher was first linked to World War Z 2, which stemmed from Brad Pitt courting the decorated filmmaker as a potential replacement for Juan Antonio Bayona (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), and now, thanks to Paramount chief Jim Gianopulos, we have firm confirmation that Fincher will helm the studio’s apocalyptic sequel.

The Hollywood Reporter posted an extensive interview with Gianopulos, wherein topics ranged from his decision to part ways with Fox and the current challenges facing Paramount Pictures. But when the conversation veered toward the studio’s upcoming slate and, more specifically, World War Z 2, the executive not only reaffirmed that David Fincher will handle directorial duties, but also that the studio is now targeting a production start in early 2018.

That would place World War Z 2 on course for a theatrical release sometime in 2019 – likely the crowded summer window, given Paramount had once reserved June 9th, 2017 for the blockbuster sequel before delaying production to accommodate the loss of Bayona – though it’s far too soon for the studio to commit to anything official.

What we do know is that World War Z 2 will be the first time David Fincher has tackled a sequel since his infamous experience helming Alien 3 for 20th Century Fox. That was all the way back in ’92, when the filmmaker became embroiled in disputes over the script and a $50 million budget – not exactly the kind of memory one expects to forge while crafting their feature film debut. It’s a sorry saga that drove Fincher away from studio filmmaking, before the director bounced back in remarkable fashion with Seven three years later – a movie that would, incidentally, tee up an overly successful working relationship with Brad Pitt.

Now, Fincher has come full circle to sign on for World War Z 2. Expect further details to begin trickling out before the year’s end, at which point Paramount will likely have a cast in tow before filming kicks off in 2018. »

Paramount CEO Confirms David Fincher as World War Z 2 Director

22 June 2017 8:37 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A recent interview with the newly hired Paramount Pictures CEO has confirmed rumors that World War Z 2 was on track with David Fincher as its director.  More details below.

Paramount Pictures is doing everything in its power to get back to its glory days.  Part of that restoration project was to bring in former 20th Century Fox Chairman Jim Gianopulos (fellow Greek) to be the CEO of the struggling studio.  During a new expose by THR, Gianopulos confirmed that one of the better directors in recent memory would be taking that reigns of the World War Z sequel, David Fincher.

What's the status of the World War Z sequel?

We're in advanced development.

With David Fincher directing?

Yes. And Brad Pitt.

With this news, Fincher will reunite with Brad Pitt after working on several successful films together like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Se7en, and Fight Club.  Paramount hopes that the experience they have with each other and Fincher's recent success at adapting book to movie (Gone Girl) will be enough magic to jumpstart the World War Z franchise, after receiving less-than-kind reviews with the first film.

As of now there is no official date for World War Z 2, but the announcement of David Fincher and the return of Brad Pitt should be enough to, at least, intrigue moviegoers.

Are you intrigued by this pairing?  Sound off @Cinelinx!

World War Z 2 Confirms Director David Fincher

21 June 2017 6:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

New Paramount Pictures chairman Jim Gianopulos confirmed in an interview that David Fincher has in fact signed on to direct World War Z 2. We reported in April that the filmmaker had entered talks to direct, following months of rumors about the director's involvement in this long-gestating sequel. Brad Pitt will reprise his role as Gerry Lane from 2013's World War Z, although no other cast members have been confirmed at this time.

During a wide-ranging interview with The Hollywood Reporter, his first since taking over as the head of Paramount Pictures, Jim Gianopulos revealed that, "We're in advanced development," although no further details were given. With David Fincher now confirmed, this marks his first film since 2014's Gone Girl, and also his fourth film with Brad Pitt, following Se7en (1995), Fight Club (1999) and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008). The studio hasn't announced a production schedule or release date, but this project has certainly turned itself around in just a few months.

Back in February, Paramount delayed World War Z 2 indefinitely, yanking the movie from its June 9, 2017 release date and not issuing a new date at this time. We reported in August 2016 that Brad Pitt, who also serves as a producer on the sequel, had been meeting with several directors, but he was "zeroing in" on David Fincher. While the director was reportedly hesitant about taking on the project, he entered talks to direct, and we reported in April that both the studio and director were close to finalizing their deal, which has now been closed. Director J.A. Bayona was at one point attached to direct, but he went on to make A Monster Calls, before eventually dropping the project.

World War Z 2 writer Steven Knight, who came aboard to write the script in 2014, revealed in early 2015 that this sequel "is not quite like the other," while teasing that this follow-up, "starts with a clean slate." The writer would not clarify those comments, and since no story details have been given yet, it remains to be seen how this sequel will wipe the slate clean from the original. The first movie centered around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. The original movie featured a supporting cast that also included Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox, David Morse, Elyes Gable and Peter Capaldi.

With the project still in "advanced development," it remains unclear if the studio is still working from Steven Knight's script for the World War Z sequel, or if other writers have been brought in for the project. Before taking on this movie, David Fincher had been keeping busy on the small screen, developing Mindhunter for Netflix, where he also directed the first two episodes, along with the season finale. He is also slated to executive produce Sony's The Girl In the Spider's Web, which reboots the Lizbeth Salander story. Hopefully we'll find out more about World War Z 2 soon. »

From music videos to film, David Fincher’s work has a cinematic quality that is instantly recognizable. His collaborations with Brad Pitt have given us two of the most iconic movies of the 1990s, namely “Se7en” and “Fight Club”, while “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” offered jaw-dropping visual effects that garnered several well-deserved Academy Award wins, as well as a Best Director nomination for Fincher himself.
