Italy’s Wildside Recruits Hot Scribes To Pen International TV Projects

4 August 2014 4:55 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rome – Expanding Italian production company Wildside is looking to grow its presence in the international TV arena with several new projects, including high-concept skeins being penned by two of the country’s best-selling authors, Niccolò Ammaniti and Paolo Giordano.

Giordano, whose novel “The Solitude of Prime Numbers” won Italy’s top literary nod, the Premio Strega, is at work on a scripted series working-titled “Lo Sciamano” (The Shaman) about a man who emanates what are believed to be magic powers in a European city outside Italy. “Numbers” was adapted into a Wildside-produced film helmed by Saverio Costanzo. It went to Venice in 2010.

Ammaniti is instead at work on “The Miracle,” a mystery/thriller/drama which turns on a magical event that impacts the lives of characters across borders, including in an anglo-saxon country. A top Italian director will helm the skein, now in advanced scripting stages. Ammaniti’s books have been made into six movies, »

Beginning tonight at 9pm, Maggie Gyllenhaal stars in BBC Two's new eight-part thriller The Honourable Woman.

In the drama from The Shadow Line writer Hugo Blick, New York-born Maggie boasts an impressive English accent in her role as Nessa Stein.

This got us to thinking - which other Us stars have attempted to mimic the Brit twang... and how did they fare?

Italy’s Notorious Pictures debuts on Aim

23 June 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Company’s increased acquisition drive includes post Cannes purchase of boxing drama Bleed For This.  

Rome-based distributor Notorious Pictures made its debut today on the Italian Aim market, the country’s alternative capital market for small and medium-sized companies.

Founded in 2012, the company has seen rapid growth over the last 18 months, climbing to number four in Italy’s distributor rankings for the first three months of 2014, from number 10 in 2013.

Notorious Pictures CEO and founder Guglielmo Marchetti told ScreenDaily in an exclusive interview that the €7.5m ($10m) raised through the move would be used to increase acquisitions and enter production.

The €7.5m ($10m) represents roughly 10.3% of the company’s total capital, said Marchetti, who controls the remaining 89.7%.

“Becoming a public quoted company is an important step for Notorious,” said Marchetti. “It gives us access to new sources of finance which will enable us to further expand.

“There are two poles of growth we want to pursue. Firstly »

Four Weddings and a Funeral anniversary: What happened to the cast?

15 May 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Has it really been 20 years? We hadn't noticed. Prepare to feel old, because this week romantic comedy classic Four Weddings and a Funeral celebrates a landmark anniversary.

The Richard Curtis-penned film delivered exactly what its title promised and so much more. It was funny, charming and packed with brilliant performances from a stellar Brit cast. Without it Hugh Grant would never have hit the Hollywood A-list and Wet Wet Wet wouldn't have spent what felt like an eternity at the top of the UK singles chart.

But what are the cast up to two decades on? We take a look at the key players then and now below...

Hugh Grant

Hugh Grant was a respected supporting actor in the Brit film industry prior to Four Weddings thanks to roles in Remains of the Day and Sirens. Things changed overnight after his role as the ever-so-British and lovelorn Charles.

Gwyneth Paltrow Wants to Go Back to Brad Pitt Days?

12 April 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Does Gwyneth Paltrow want to go back to the Brad Pitt days? It appears she is reminiscing heavily as she moves forward without soon to be ex husband Chris Martin and wants her glory days back. Angelina Jolie doesn't have to worry about her swiping Pitt, though, she's only interested in the movis. A report claims she made her friends and family watch old films from that era to try and ''re-live her glory days''. The 'Iron Man 3' actress reportedly sat with loved ones to watch a number of previous hits such as 'Seven', 'Sliding Doors' and 'Shakespeare In Love', and quizzed them on ''what worked about the movies'' much to their annoyance. A source told RadarOnline.com: ''Gwyneth is really just trying to re-live her glory days. ''The truth is, if you look at her schedule, she's just not a full-time actor anymore, »

King Kong ain’t got s–t on superstar Denzel Washington (at least, not until the beast’s new musical declares a firm date next season), as the movie megastar touched down on Broadway for the first time since his Tony-winning turn in August Wilson’s Fences in 2010. And like that heralded revival, he once again got raves from most outlets. Also receiving raves this week was Wicked star Idina Menzel, who dazzles in If/Then, the new tuner by the Next to Normal team of Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt.

'Grey's Anatomy': Should Cristina and Owen End Up Together?

27 March 2014 7:23 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Thursday's "Do You Know" episode of Grey's Anatomy.] ABC's Grey's Anatomy offered not one but two glimpses into what Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Owen's (Kevin McKidd) future may look like during Thursday's "Sliding Doors"-style hour. Inspired by a case in which a paralyzed man is given the choice to live or die, Cristina envisions her future in three different scenarios. In the first, Cristina -- who over 10 seasons has remained steadfast in her desire to not have children -- makes a sacrifice for Owen to remarry and start a family. The second sees

Amazon Studios Developing High Concept Relationship Comedy ‘Kismet’

17 March 2014 3:15 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Amazon has put in development Kismet, a half-hour comedy project from writer Marc Klein (Serendipity, Mirror, Mirror) and Radius Entertainment’s Carol Bodie. Based on an original idea from Klein, Kismet is a Sliding Doors-style parallel-reality love story, which follows one couple who meet, date and marry. But what if they hadn’t met? Kismet chronicles their lives both as a married couple who’ve met and as two single people who’ve never met. As their lives separate and dovetail, we discover that there is no single version of a person’s life that is better than any other. Klein, repped by UTA, Tobin Babst and Karl Austen, is writing the script and will executive produce with Bodie. »

'Grey's Anatomy' Season 10: Isaiah Washington returning as Dr. Burke

7 March 2014 | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Isaiah Washington is returning to "Grey's Anatomy" for an episode later this season. Seriously.

EW broke the shocking news on Thursday (March 6) that Washington, who infamously left the ABC series in 2007 following alleged homophobic slurs against his gay co-star T.R. Knight, will reprise his role as Dr. Preston Burke for an episode airing in May. This will be the first episode featuring Burke since he left Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) at the altar in Season 3.

Executive producer Shonda Rhimes released a statement explaining that Burke's return is a necessary part of providing closure to Cristina as Oh is leaving the show at the end of Season 10. "It's important to me that Cristina's journey unfolds exactly as it should," Rhimes says. "Burke is vital to that journey -- he gives her story that full-circle moment we need to properly say goodbye to our beloved Cristina Yang."

'Grey's Anatomy' Season 10 to air Cristina-centric episode 'Do You Know'

6 March 2014 3:15 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Calling all "Grey's Anatomy" fans: If you're among the the viewers preparing to mourn the departure of original cast member Sandra Oh at the conclusion of Season 10, here's some good news for you.

The March 27 episode, titled "Do You Know," will be all about Cristina Yang, TVLine reports.

The Cristina-centric episode will find Meredith's person imagining the different routes her life could take "via a 'Sliding Doors' concept." Hmm -- sounds like we're in for a dream sequence or two, possibly leading the star doc to make some decisions about her future that will take her away from the ABC medical drama.

"Do You Know" will likely give fans the proper Cristina send-off before Oh leaves the series for good, although it is still unknown how the doc will leave Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital onscreen. Will Cristina move away again? Will she quit life as a doctor? Doubtful. »

'How Your Mother Met Me': 'How I Met Your Mother' turns the tables, and it's great

27 January 2014 7:02 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The 200th episode of "How I Met Your Mother" focused almost solely on the Mother -- down to the opening credits, which retitled the show "How Your Mother Met Me." A lot of things could have gone wrong with the episode -- and a couple did -- but thanks to a knockout performance from Cristin Milioti, it worked really well.

The biggest potential pitfall lay in depicting Ted and the Mother's near-misses as just a series of zany coincidences, a low-rent "Sliding Doors" that invested no emotional weight in the Mother's story. Fortunately, that didn't happen, and we learned a great deal about the Mother and why she is where she is in the process.

It can't be said enough how well Milioti handled the emotional scenes, particularly the moment where she asked her late boyfriend if it would be Ok to let him go, finally, nearly eight years after his death. »

Reasonable Doubt Movie Review

17 January 2014 3:54 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Reasonable Doubt Director: Peter P. Croudins Starring: Dominic Cooper, Gloria Reuben, Samuel L. Jackson, Erin Karpluk, Ryan Robbins When a director is so utterly disheartened with a finished product that, regardless of whether they had final cut, he or she takes measures to remove their name… well, that really says something. And such is the case with “Reasonable Doubt,” a labyrinthine legal thriller that starts off with an interesting enough premise but quickly devolves into a ramshackle delivery vehicle for Dominic Cooper’s misadventures in accent and the sort of disinterested glowering bullcrap that Samuel L. Jackson reliably pulls out for paycheck gigs devoid of character or sense. Director Peter Howitt (“Sliding Doors,”  [ Read More ]

Film Review: ‘Reasonable Doubt’

13 January 2014 2:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A documentary about just what went wrong with the making of “Reasonable Doubt” would doubtless prove more involving than the movie itself, a turgid yuppie paranoia thriller of the sort that proliferated wildly 20-odd years ago in the wake of “Presumed Innocent” and “Pacific Heights.” Limping into theaters and simultaneous VOD play with understandably little fanfare — plus a pseudonym where the name of director Peter Howitt (“Sliding Doors,” “Laws of Attraction”) once stood — this utterly unmemorable, uninspired and unnecessary genre exercise should fade from view so fast they might just as soon have called it “Without a Trace.”

Flightplan” scribe Peter A. Dowling (who should have thought seriously about the pseudonym route himself) is credited with concocting this tale of a rising young public prosecutor with his sights on the Chicago district attorney’s office who makes one of those fatal errors in judgment that, by the movie’s third act, »
