Rob Moore Out at Paramount Pictures (Exclusive)

23 September 2016 12:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: Rob Moore is leaving his post as the vice chairman of Paramount Pictures, Variety has learned.

Moore, who didn’t respond to requests for comment, has been in his current job since 2008 (and with the studio since 2005), overseeing Paramount’s worldwide marketing, distribution, digital and television arms, and shepherded tentpoles like the “Transformers” and “Mission: Impossible” franchises, “Interstellar” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.” The studio does not expect to fill Moore’s position.

A source close to the situation said that the decision to ask for Moore’s resignation was made by the board of Viacom, Paramount’s corporate parent. Moore had been one of the major proponents of former Viacom Chairman Philippe Dauman’s push for Paramount to sell a minority stake in the company to Dalian Wanda. But after Viacom Board Vice-Chair Shari Redstone successfully orchestrated Dauman’s ouster last summer, the decision was made to »

The Hunters Become The Hunted In All-New TV Spot For Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

22 September 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Continuing to check off all of the bone-crunching hallmarks that make Jack Reacher the hardboiled super-spy we know and love, Paramount has today rolled out the latest in a long line of TV spots for Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, the action sequel hailing from director Ed Zwick.

Zwick, who had collaborated with Cruise before on The Last Samurai, picks up the mantle from director Christopher McQuarrie in time for Never Go Back, after the latter parted ways with the Jack Reacher series to spearhead Cruise’s other action franchise, Mission: Impossible.

Getting back to Reacher, though, a late October release date has been earmarked for Zwick’s follow-up, tapping into Lee Child’s page-turner of the same name. Shipping our title hero off to an old military base in Virginia, it’s here that Cruise’s lead is framed for a 16-year-old homicide that he didn’t commit. Fighting to clear his name, »

De Palma review

22 September 2016 3:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Published Date  Friday, September 23, 2016 - 06:17

If director Brian De Palma was sometimes criticised for settling for style over substance in his thrillers, this feature-length documentary about his career is reassuringly basic in its approach. Barring archive footage and one, solitary moment, directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow divide their retrospective between sequences from De Palma’s movies and interviews with the filmmaker himself, seated in front of a grey fireplace.

It’s the kind of move that could be regarded as lazy or tentative in some circumstances, but Baumbach and Paltrow are shrewd enough to recognise that a director known for his technical flourishes needs room to breathe; and besides, De Palma and his movies are interesting enough subjects that they hardly need further embellishment.

Even De Palma’s structure is straightforward: we start at the beginning, when the future director of Carrie and The Untouchables was a kid, »

Movie Review – De Palma (2016)

22 September 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

De Palma, 2016

Directed by Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow.

Synopsis:

A documentary exploring the life, work and influences behind the films of Brian De Palma

Brian De Palma may be popular among cineliterate enthusiasts but he’s never had the same popularity elsewhere. When you list his movies, it’s easy to imagine audiences being taken aback by the sheer quantity of classics he has under his belt. Carrie, Scarface and Mission Impossible are difficult to group together, spanning vividly different genres, and yet they fall under the impressive banner of Brian De Palma. De Palma, jointly directed by Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow, is primarily an interview, but it fills the screen with footage from each of his movies (and the classics that inspired them) and weaves this chronological canon together effortlessly.

Discussing each and every film in his eclectic filmography, De Palma is affably honest. He’s outspoken »

‘Home Movies’: Brian De Palma’s Personal Family Crises Played for Laughs

19 September 2016 1:34 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Leave it to Brian De Palma to turn one of the most traumatic events of his adolescence into a film school homework assignment.

Arguably the most personal entry in De Palma’s filmography, Home Movies began as a class project while he was teaching film production at his alma mater, Sarah Lawrence College. Fresh off the supernatural successes of Carrie and The Fury, he tasked his students with the challenge of creating a low-budget film using highly personal stories from his own teenage years. As De Palma bluntly states in the documentary De Palma, “99% of film students are going nowhere” after graduation. At least these students would get hands-on training and earn a feature film credit. More importantly, De Palma would get the opportunity to revisit his early days of guerilla filmmaking and indulge some of his usual obsessions (erotic surveillance, films within films) while poking fun at some of »

‘Mission: Impossible 6’ a go after Tom Cruise officially signs

19 September 2016 6:11 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The sixth movie in the Mission: Impossible franchise looks like it is officially a go after Tom Cruise has agreed a deal and signed on the dotted line.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that a ‘pay dispute’ had halted plans to start production, but this has now been rectified following advanced negotiations. The next film in the franchise, which follows last year’s Rogue Nation, will once again be directed and written by Christopher McQuarrie.

We’re hearing that production was due to kick off in January, but now a spring 2017 start date is being mentioned.

We’ll keep you posted.

Tom Cruise closes deal for Mission: Impossible 6 as pre-production resumes

17 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month it was announced that Paramount had halted pre-production on M:i 6 Mission Impossible, the sixth instalment of the blockbuster spy franchise, owing to contractual disputes with producer and leading man Tom Cruise.

However, it looks like the issues have now been ironed out, as The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Cruise is now on the verge of closing his deal, and the project is once again moving forward. Initially, filming was set to get underway in January, although this has now been pushed back until the Spring.

M:i 6 Mission Impossible will see Cruise reuniting with Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation director Christopher McQuarrie and leading lady Rebecca Ferguson. It was initially slated for release in 2017, but there’s been no word as to whether this will be pushed back due to the delayed production start.

Tom Cruise Closes Deal For Mission: Impossible 6; Production Expected To Start Spring 2017

16 September 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After a brief hiccup, all is right once again and it's time to light the fuse. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Tom Cruise has officially closed his deal with Paramount Pictures to return as action spy extraordinaire Ethan Hunt in the highly anticipated sixth installment in his blockbuster Mission: Impossible franchise. He'll also once again produce.   Chris McQuarrie, who helmed the exhilarating Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, wrote the script and will be back in the director's chair for Part 6.  Production has been pushed from January to Spring 2017. No word yet on the rest of Ethan Hunt's elite Imf team, but Rogue Nation breakout star Rebecca Ferguson has been heavily rumored to be involved in some capacity. As for Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Alec Baldwin, Paula Patton and/or Maggie Q, we'll just have to wait and see on their availability for Cruise's sixth impossible mission in the coming months. »

Great Job, Internet!: Mission: Impossible has had the coolest theme song for 50 years running

16 September 2016 2:45 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

On September 17, 1966, a landmark TV program debuted over on CBS: Bruce Geller’s Mission: Impossible, an action-adventure series centering on a team of highly skilled government agents. The original M:i ran from 1966 to 1973 and spawned a 1988 to 1990 revival, as well as several video games and a blockbuster film series whose sixth entry is on the way. Through all those incarnations, one consistent element has been the indelible, jazzy Mission: Impossible theme song by Argentinian composer Lalo Schifrin. Written in an unusual 5/4 time signature, supposedly to accommodate “people with five legs,” the catchy composition caught the public’s ear and just missed the Top 40 in 1967. In 1996, on the occasion of the first Mission: Impossible movie, U2’s Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. recorded their own remake of the tune, finally taking it into the Top 10 and making »

Tom Cruise Will Return in Mission: Impossible 6, Shooting Begins Spring 2017

16 September 2016 2:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Don't worry Mission: Impossible fans, everything is fine. After a bit of a contract dispute over how much of a small fortune Tom Cruise should be paid for the upcoming sixth movie in the Mission Impossible franchise, things have reportedly been worked out and all is well. Mission: Impossible 6 is on track to start shooting in Spring of next year and pre-production has resumed.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that negotiations between Tom Cruise and the studio have gone well and that he is about to close his deal for the movie. Tom Cruise has been starring in and co-producing the action franchise ever since the first installment hit theaters in 1996. Mission Impossible has turned into an absolute behemoth at the box office with the last two installments, so naturally, Cruise wanted his cut to match what the movies were bringing in. Luckily, Skydance and Paramount, who are co-financing the movie, »

Mission: Impossible 6 pay dispute resolved, film going ahead

16 September 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 19, 2016

Mission: Impossible 6 has resumed its objective now that Tom Cruise has signed back on for the Christopher McQuarrie film.

Tom Cruise already has his next three films in the can, with Jack Reacher: Never Go Back landing in UK cinemas next month, and the long-filmed Doug Liman project American Made put back to a summer 2017 release date. Furthermore, he’s also shot a role in Universal’s reboot of The Mummy, also due next year.

What he hasn’t done, as least not yet, is filmed any of Mission: Impossible 6.

When Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation hit big, it seemed that Paramount was very keen to get the sixth film in the boxset moving quickly. Yet a few weeks ago, there was something of a spanner in the proverbial works. A disagreement over things financial threw Cruise’s involvement in the movie into doubt, and pre-production »

Tom Cruise Chooses To Accept Mission: Impossible 6

16 September 2016 12:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The thing about a gravy train is that, as long as the wheels are rolling, nobody really wants to disembark. Such is the case with Mission: Impossible 6 – the franchise instalment that was recently put on hold while in development, as Paramount considered the reportedly increased financial demands of the series star, Tom Cruise. An undisclosed deal has now been reached, however, and the film is right back on track, for a spring 2017 shoot.

Also remaining on the franchise locomotive is Christopher McQuarrie – director of 2015’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. In addition, Rebecca Ferguson will also reprise her role from that most recent instalment. It has been suggested that the style and tone of the sixth film will be significantly different from those previous series entries, which might indicate that the filmmakers involved are seeking to revitalize what is now becoming a somewhat tired format.

The next question is one of scale and scope. »

Tom Cruise & Paramount Are Friends Again, ‘Mission: Impossible 6’ Back On

16 September 2016 12:56 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Across five films, Tom Cruise and Paramount pretty much had an easygoing relationship when it came to the “Mission: Impossible” franchise: the studio would pay the actor handsomely, he’d tell the stunt team to chill and then go hang off a jet plane or jump off a tall building, they’d put all his action shots together, call it a movie, and everyone would make a pile of movie.
