Princess Diana Blockbuster Planned

7 October 2011 9:23 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

The man behind The Madness Of King George is planning a big budget movie about the breakdown of Diana, Princess Of Wales' marriage to Prince Charles. Producer Stephen Evans, who worked on the 1994 historical hit, as well as period pieces Twelfth Night and The Wings of the Dove, has set his sights on creating the first feature film about the beloved late royal since her death in 1997. The $50 million (£31.2 million) movie will focus on the time leading up to the princess' divorce from the heir to the British throne in 1996, according to Britain's Guardian newspaper. Crime novelist Philip Kerr is onboard to write the script and Princess Diana's former private secretary and head of security have been hired to make sure the screenplay is authentic. And Evans is adamant the movie will be a hit, saying, "What is quite clear is that her life was an amazing life. »

"She was a wagonload of monkeys (mischievous) but she was also an amazing, fascinating, ballsy woman. You don't often get a movie like this where you know, that if you can make it work, it is bomb proof." »

Producer plans first big-budget film telling story of the late Princess Diana and commissions script from crime novelist

Since her death in 1997, there have been a string of forgettable biopics, but now the first big-budget film telling the story of Diana, Princess of Wales is on the way, according to a report in Screen Daily.

Producer Stephen Evans, whose previous credits include The Madness of King George and The Wings of the Dove, is planning a $50m film about the princess, and has hired Ken Wharfe, Diana's former head of private security, and her former private secretary, Commander Patrick Jephson, to provide authenticity. No one has yet been cast in the lead role, nor has a director been attached, but Evans has commissioned a script from crime novelist Philip Kerr.

Evans describes Diana as "a wagonload of monkeys but she was also an amazing, fascinating, ballsy woman". He goes on »

Drive Movie Review

29 September 2011 12:04 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

If the Houser Brothers of Rockstar Games, the creative team behind the famous (or infamous depending on how prude you are) Grand Theft Auto series, relented and allowed a film version of the GTA series to be produced, and if they somehow maintained enough control over the project to inject some artistic fortitude into it and make it more than yet another Hollywood cash-in on a popular video game franchise, Drive might be the result.

In fact in a lot of ways, Drive is sort of an amalgam of the Playstation 2 trilogy of the Grand Theft Auto series. The movie takes place in Los Angeles (like most of Grand Theft Auto:San Andreas), has hot pink opening titles and uses synthesizer-heavy 1980's dance club music (a la Grand Theft Auto:Vice City), and for the first half of the film, has an almost totally silent protagonist who gets involved with »

Drive Review – Slick & Precise Car Crime Thriller Turns Grindhouse

23 September 2011 2:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

(My Drive review from Cannes re-published as the film is released in the UK today)

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

For me, Nicolas Winding Refn’s new movie Drive, which premiered in competition last night to a responsive crowd in Cannes, only truly works for the first half or maybe 2/3rd’s of it’s running time. It’s only interesting when it’s a Steve McQueen-like, very precisely told, quiet and meticulously directed car crime thriller that refuses the urge to break the realms of plausibility.

The rest sadly is a mess – Refn inexcusably transforming a smart and lean thriller into a ramped up Nicolas Cage-style Grindhouse movie that forgets all the good motoring that’s built up in the first half for diverting and excessive blood exploitations and cheesy one-liners and cheap cliches and it’s painful to see it happen before your eyes.

Days of Heaven – review

1 September 2011 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Terrence Malick's 1978 masterpiece is a fantastically rewarding experience, and it contains ideas and themes that would re-emerge in The Tree of Life

This was the film that Terrence Malick made in 1978 before heading off for his 20-year sabbatical: an inspired American pastoral, perhaps inspired by Henry James's The Wings of the Dove. In the early years of the 20th century, Richard Gere and Brooke Adams are Bill and Abby, a Chicago couple on the run from the law who pose as brother and sister to find itinerant farm-work in the Texas prairie. Sam Shepard's ailing young farmer, with evidently just a year to live, falls in love with Abby; Bill then persuades her to take up with him, give him some happiness in what little time remains, and then they can be rich together with his money after he's dead. Of course, the plan goes wrong. The film, »

Drive got a lot of buzz from Cannes, and with the September 16th release just around the corner, the film made a big splash at Comic-Con. There's also a new red band trailer available.

I've heard a lot of good things about this one (and from people I usually believe), and the trailer is pretty impressive. Below, check out a mountain of images from the film, and Comic-Con, and don't miss the trailer.

Breakout Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn (The Pusher Trilogy, Bronson, Valhalla Rising) throttles into the Hollywood fast lane with the precision-crafted action caper Drive.

Terrence Malick: act of creation

1 July 2011 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Terrence Malick made two of the most admired films of the 1970s and the best American war movie ever. His latest work, The Tree of Life, is released next week.

How might the surviving American film-makers of the 1970s appear to someone born in the early 90s, a casual cinema-goer who consumes blockbusters at the local multiplex? Scorsese must seem the longwinded master of glossy action-thrillers, Polanski a maker of earnest European fare, Spielberg the purveyor of soured epic, and Coppola not even a name. Would such a person feel, as I once did, exhilarated about the latest Woody Allen? And Terrence Malick? If all you had to go on was The New World (2005) and his new film, The Tree of Life, would it be possible for you to understand the reverence that moviegoers feel for his work?

Badlands (1973), Days of Heaven (1978), and The Thin Red Line (1998) are masterpieces, but »

‘Snow White’ Movie News: Production Update & Script Rewrites

15 June 2011 4:32 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Relativity Media and Universal are engaged in a fierce battle that will see their respective Snow White projects – Tarsem Singh’s untitled take on the story vs. Snow White and the Huntman – released within three months of one another in 2012. Most everyone else is still just wondering why we’re getting two “re-imaginings” of the fairy tale in the first place.

Singh will begin shooting his film about the ebony-haired maiden within the week; meanwhile, Universal hired on an Academy Award-nominated screenwriter to do a rewrite of the script for Huntsman, which should start shooting in August.

Deadline learned that Hossein Amini (The Wings of the Dove) will be reworking the most recent draft of the Huntsman script by Evan Spiliotopoulos – whose resume is composed primarily of direct-to-video sequels to Disney ...

Keanu Reeves Talks about Samurai Film ‘47 Ronin’

24 May 2011 6:27 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Honor. Revenge. And Impossible Love. That’s how actor Keanu Reeves describes the upcoming samurai film “47 Ronin” based on 18th century historic events in Japan. The story is about a group of samurai warriors who were left leaderless (becoming ronin) after their feudal lord Asano Naganori forced to commit suicide for assaulting a government court official Kira Yoshinaka. The ronin avenged their master’s honor by planning to kill Yoshinaka. The true story was popularized in Japanese culture for its loyalty, sacrifice, persistence an honor for all good people. “Japanese kids grow up this story told to them. They hear it from family and they learn it in school, it’s part of the culture,” said Reeves to Los Angeles Times’ Hero Complex. “It’s been made into movies many times and on television. It’s like our westerns, the story keeps being told. It’s been reworked in some »

Cannes 2011. Nicolas Winding Refn's "Drive"

20 May 2011 11:39 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Updated.

"A spasmodically violent, creatively cast and off-center fast-cars-and-crime drama, Drive belongs to a rarified genre subset of stripped down, semi-arty and quasi-existentialist action films that includes Point Blank, Bullitt and The Driver," begins Todd McCarthy. "With Ryan Gosling ably incarnating a pent-up man of few words who goes to great lengths to make one positive gesture in a rotten world, Danish wunderkind Nicolas Winding Refn has fashioned an atmospheric and engaging glorified potboiler that nonetheless seems powered by a half-empty creative tank." Also in the Hollywood Reporter: Gregg Kilday interviews Refn.

Xan Brooks in the Guardian: "Ryan Gosling stars as Driver, who flips cars for a living and occasionally moonlights as a getaway man for jewel thieves and bank robbers, offering them five minutes of his time, after which they're on their own. Driver, we soon come to realise, is an American riff on Jean-Pierre Melville's solitary samurai, »

Tuppence Middleton & Alexandra Roach Replace Jones and Poots in Indie Movie Trap For Cinderella

18 March 2011 12:03 PM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Back in November, was announced that British up and coming actresses Felicity Jones and Imogen Poots had signed on for Iain Softley’s indie project Trap For Cinderella.

Since then, both Jones and Poots launched big buzz around them – Jones gained critical acclaim for her role in Sundance hit Like Crazy, and previews for this summer’s Fright Night are recommending an exceptional performance from Poots. Jones has been working on David Hare‘s Page Eight, and the comedy Cheerful Weather for the Wedding in the last few months, and was a candidate for the lead role in Snow White and the Huntsman which was finally taken by Kristen Stewart.

Poots seems is ruled out because of scheduling conflicts since she lined up for roles in A Late Quartet, The Laureate and Hello Darkness. And it doesn’t seem to have paid of for Softley, as Jones and Poots are exited, »

'Jane Eyre' and the decline and fade of the 'Masterpiece Theatre' movie

12 March 2011 10:49 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

This weekend, the stormy, deluxe new version of Jane Eyre opens, and in just about every way the rituals that have long attended the mounting and marketing of a lofty romantic period piece have been duly observed. The film’s star, Mia Wasikowska, is a ravishing and talented up-and-coming classy It Girl of the moment — just as Gwyneth Paltrow was 15 years ago when she first set hearts aflutter in Emma (1996), and Helena Bonham Carter a quarter of a century ago when her stately carriage and wistful dark eyebrows anchored in A Room with a View (1985).
