Elizabeth Taylor, Farley Granger, Jane Russell, Peter Falk, Sidney Lumet: TCM Remembers 2011

13 December 2011 4:16 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

"TCM Remembers 2011" is out. Remembered by Turner Classic Movies are many of those in the film world who left us this past year. As always, this latest "TCM Remembers" entry is a classy, immensely moving compilation. The haunting background song is "Before You Go," by Ok Sweetheart.

Among those featured in "TCM Remembers 2011" are Farley Granger, the star of Luchino Visconti's Senso and Alfred Hitchcock's Rope and Strangers on a Train; Oscar-nominated Australian actress Diane Cilento (Tom Jones, Hombre), formerly married to Sean Connery; and two-time Oscar nominee Peter Falk (Murder, Inc., Pocketful of Miracles, The Great Race), best remembered as television's Columbo. Or, for those into arthouse fare, for playing an angel in Wim Wenders' Wings of Desire.

Also, Jane Russell, whose cleavage and sensuous lips in Howard Hughes' The Outlaw left the puritans of the Production Code Association apoplectic; another Australian performer, Googie Withers, among »

‘G.I. Joe Retaliation’ Trailer: Looks Better Than the First One

12 December 2011 4:40 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Next summer, director Jon Chu (Step Up 2 & 3) will attempt to craft a better G.I. Joe movie than the one put together by director Stephen Sommers (The Mummy) back in 2009. To combat fan skepticism (which remains on red alert status at the time of writing this), Chu and Co. have promised that their sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, will give the franchise a fresh start, with a better cast, better story and most of all, better action than its predecessor.

With today’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer, we’re getting our first look at whether or not the actual film lives up to all the promises.

G.I. Joe 2 comes to us with mostly a new cast of characters, though the story will continue from where Rise of Cobra left off, in the sense that Cobra Commander (no longer played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is now the masked leader of the terrorist organization, »

Marti Noxon To Script ‘Ouija’

30 November 2011 2:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Marti Noxon, one of the most prolific and respected screenwriters in television, is to work on the script for Ouija, it has been announced. Platinum Dunes, known mainly for their horror output, will be producing (what they are referring to as) a family adventure movie in the mold of The Mummy (1999), so we can expect a fast paced caper with a dash of terror.

Noxon is no stranger to accessible horror, as she cut her fangs writing for and producing Buffy The Vampire Slayer alongside Joss Whedon. She also scripted the recent remake of Fright Night, so one would imagine as many laughs as there are chills in the upcoming Ouija.

The film is yet to find a studio to call home, but financial backers Hasbro are clearly committed to the project, as hiring a writer of Noxon’s calibre would indicate. They did the same for the movie of Monopoly, »

Rachel Weisz lends support to calls for stricter privacy laws - Realbollywood.com News

28 November 2011 5:53 AM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

London, November 28: Rachel Weisz has joined the growing number of people in Britain asking for tighter privacy laws.

At the moment there is no specific privacy law in England and Wales. However, people in the public eye have increasingly used the Human Rights Act - in particular Article Eight, outlining the 'right to private and family life' - to defend their privacy.

The Mummy actress said that although she "never had the direct experience of being terrorised by the press", she was in favour of a privacy law.

"It seems there should be some [privacy] law in place to stop that happening, that's my knee-jerk reaction,". »

‘GI Joe: Retaliation’ Set Video: Meet Roadblock & Lady Jaye

2 November 2011 7:19 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

G.I. Joe: Retaliation is currently shooting in and around New Orleans, and tidbits of info are beginning to leak from the set. If you haven’t already seen the photo of our own Ben Kendrick on set looking (semi-)tough standing next to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, you need to go ahead and click Here. Today we have a set video to share, which features some of the new G.I. Joe 2 cast members discussing their characters.

The Rise of Cobra sequel is being directed by Jon Chu (Step Up 2&3) and will take a different approach to G.I. Joe than the over-the-top, cheesy, popcorn action flick that director Stephen Sommers (The Mummy) made of the first film. This includes dumping the ...

Jenna Elfman to Join Damages for Season 5

24 October 2011 12:32 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

TVLine is reporting that Jenna Elfman (Dharma & Greg, Accidentally on Purpose) has signed on to the final season of DirecTV's Damages, which is set to air next summer. Elfman will be playing a bank employee that may start leaking some of the shady affairs her employers are involved in. She'll join previously announced season five guest stars Ryan Phillippe (Flags of Our Fathers) and John Hannah (The Mummy).

Elfman doesn't have extensive experience in dramatic television, having only a couple of guest roles (Murder One, Brothers & Sisters) to her credit. For those who may be a little unsure as to this casting, need I remind you that Damages has a history of taking primarily comedic actors (Martin Short, Lily Tomlin, Ted Danson) and allowing them to stretch their wings, culminating in awards attention and significant praise. This could be Elfman's chance to really throw us for a loop and show »

A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Those Mesmerizing Mermaids of 'Pirates 4'

17 October 2011 1:00 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Warning: A visit to Industrial Light & Magic headquarters in San Francisco will likely trigger a nerdgasm of epic proportions.

As you approach the building, a serene Yoda fountain greets you before you proceed into a large glass-enclosed sitting room where the costumes of Darth Vader and Boba Fett are on display. Try to contain your excitement as you walk by props, models, costumes, matte paintings and other memorabilia from the annals of Ilm films, including "Jurassic Park," "E.T.," "The Mummy," "Transformers" and many more, including the occasion for our visit: "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."

Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow returns in the fourth chapter of the blockbuster "Pirates of the Caribbean" series to search for the Fountain of Youth.

Dead Island movie rights picked up, producer attached

27 September 2011 11:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dead Island is set to make the jump from videogame to the movies, as Lionsgate picks up the film rights...

As famous for the staggering trailer that launched it as the end result, Dead Island turned out to be a decent zombie game, rather than anything particularly special. It’s still turned out to be a solid hit, mind, and with that in mind, it’s perhaps unsurprising that the movie rights have been picked up.

It’s Lionsgate who has acquired them, and Sean Daniel (who worked on Tombstone and The Mummy) is set to produce the project.

There’s no further details as yet, although we’d suggest that it’s that trailer, rather than the game itself, that’s led to Lionsgate forking out to make a film of the game. The movie is likely to reflect the plot of holidaymakers who find their idyllic island overrun with zombies. »

Lionsgate Developing Dead Island Video Game Movie

27 September 2011 5:47 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Lionsgate has announced that it has acquired rights to develop a film based on the "Dead Island" video game, which became a viral sensation when its trailer appeared online in February. The movie will be produced by Sean Daniel (The Mummy, Tombstone). The game centers on vacationers whose island paradise becomes a living hell when a zombie outbreak quickly spreads. Cut off from the rest of the world, the survivors have only the available materials and the island's natural "weapons" to protect themselves from the viscous and growing legions of the undead. The trailer received over one million hits in its first 24 hours online, and nearly 10 million views by two days after its debut. "'The Dead Island' trailer is the best trailer I have ever seen in my life," said G4TV. "The best video game trailer. The best movie trailer. The best anything trailer." The trailer went on to »

He will be joined by Stefan Sonnenfeld, who has worked on post-production for filmmakers including Jj Abrams, Michael Bay and Gore Verbinski.

Lionsgate Bringing "Dead Island" To Life

27 September 2011 3:14 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

BigGameHunter reports that Lionsgate is developing publisher Deep Silver's first person horror action-adventure video game "Dead Island", as a potential feature film franchise.

Sean Daniel ("The Mummy") and Stefan Sonnefeld will produce the first film through the Sean Daniel Company.

"Dead Island" the game, released in North America September 6, 2011, has to date sold over two million units.

Developed by Techland for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, "Dead Island" is centered on the challenge of survival on a 'zombie'-infested open world island with a major emphasis on melee combat.

Set in 'Banoi', off the coast of Papua New Guinea, the main characters wake up in the 'Palms Resort' hotel to find the island attacked by zombies, but mysteriously, they are immune to whatever is turning the living into the undead.

As they try to locate survivors, the main characters help stabilize the lifeguard center, maintaining contact via radio with 'Colonel White' »

Dead Island Film Adaptation Announced

27 September 2011 1:55 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s only been out for a mere two and a half weeks, but Deep Silver’s zombie video game Dead Island has already got Lionsgate hungry for a big screen adaptation.

The game is set on a posh hotel resort that is turned into hell on earth following an invasion by the living dead. With no contact with the outside world, the survivors are forced to defend themselves with whatever they can find on the island. The game is notable for having a free-roaming world and four player co-op, which in non-geek terms means you can pretty much do whatever you want, and with three friends battering deadheads by your side.

The atmospheric trailer for the game (below) became a viral hit back in February, where it told the harrowing story of a family attacked by the zombies on the resort. There are also plans, in addition to further games, »

Lionsgate Gets "Dead Island" Film Rights

27 September 2011 1:20 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Lionsgate has optioned the film rights to the zombie-themed video game "Dead Island" from publisher Deep Silver says The Hollywood Reporter.

The game is set on an island paradise during a contagious zombie outbreak. Cut off from the rest of the world, the player has to protect the other survivors and escape.

Interest in the rights first emerged back in February when a teaser trailer was an online viral sensation that generated millions of views and immediate interest for the then unknown game. Released earlier this month, sales were strong with over a million copies sold in North America in its first few days and double that amount to date. Reviews however were decidedly ordinary.

"The Mummy" producer Sean Daniel and Stefan Sonnefeld will spearhead production in the film which will emphasise "family ties and non-linear storytelling". »

Dead Island Movie Rights Sold To Lionsgate

27 September 2011 1:12 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lionsgate announced today that they have come to an agreement with developers Deep Silver to make the Dead Island movie that has been threatened ever since that infamous trailer hit in February and set the Internet alight with buzz.

Indeed just a few days after it was unleashed, we heard that Sean Daniel, a twenty year producing vet behind National Lampoon’s Animal House, The Mummy and The Wolfman, had bought the rights to the game for his recently established The Sean Daniel Company. However Deep Silver were quick to say that talk was premature and they were ready to turn down frantic offers back then;

“We are looking for quality above all else for a movie based on ‘Dead Island.’ We want to do it the right way as film realizations of games (or vice versa) usually fail to deliver what the fans were looking for. We will not »
