'Game of Thrones' Creators Plan Feature Debut with 'Dirty White Boys'

10 April 2014 3:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Game of Thrones creators/showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff have signed on to make their feature directing debuts with the adaptation Dirty White Boys.

The project is based on the 1995 novel of the same name, written by Stephen Hunter, whose novel Point of Impact was adapted into the 2007 feature Shooter, starring Mark Wahlberg. The story centers on three inmates lead by Lamar Pye, who escape from prison and soon thereafter are tracked by state trooper Bud Pertwee.

It isn't known when this will actually move forward into production, since the demands of writing and shooting Game of Thrones are so immense. David Benioff revealed that an informal chat with other writers such as Scott Frank is what piqued the pair's interest in the book.

"We're sitting around bullsh*tting and we started talking about lines we were jealous of before it came around to the familiar topic of greatest opening lines in novels. »

'Magic Mike 2' is Shooting This Fall, But Who's Directing This Time?

28 March 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last summer, we knew Magic Mike 2 was happening, but with Steven Soderbergh retiring from filmmaking, no one was sure who would direct. There was a chance that Channing Tatum and his producing partner Reid Carolin might step up to direct, and Soderbergh said he would help out as director of photography, but it sounds like the sequel is going with another name from behind the scenes of the original male stripper movie. The Playlist has learned that the film will be appropriately and hilariously called Magic Mike Xxl, and first assistant director Greg Jacobs is stepping up to direct it. More below! This isn't all that surprising, and it's not a choice out of left field, because Jacobs has been working with Soderbergh for years. Jacobs has been Soderbergh's go-to Ad starting with King of the Hill and running through the Ocean's Eleven franchise, Out of Sight, Bubble, Erin Brockovich, »

An A-z of the 90s films that Generation Y grew up with

20 March 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The 90s will go down in history as the decade that brought us Titanic. But it also introduced us to Quentin Tarantino and The Matrix. And there was at least one film that began with a Z

A is for Aladdin

Starting with Cadillac Man and ending with Bicentennial Man, Robin Williams made 27 films over the course of the 90s. That's a whole spectrum of Robin Williamses: kooky (Mrs Doubtfire), mournful (What Dreams May Come), creepy (Jack) and annoying (again, Bicentennial Man). Yet the most 90s Robin Williams performance of all is his turn as the Genie in Disney's Aladdin, in which he is allowed to blabber and gibber and yelp and riff about nothing at a mile a minute for ages. It's brilliant, but exhausting. Remember, this film had two sound editors. Pray for them.

B is for The Blair Witch Project

A definitively 90s film because it was »

'Justified' postmortem: Ep Graham Yost talks Dickie's return, Danny's showdown in 'Weight'

18 March 2014 8:16 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t yet watched this week’s episode of Justified, “Weight” written by Taylor Elmore and Keith Schreier and directed by John Dahl, stop reading now. As he’ll do throughout the season, showrunner Graham Yost takes us inside the writers room. 

Entertainment Weekly: Let’s start with Danny’s awesome/hilarious death when he finally got to try out the 21-foot rule with Raylan. When did you know he’d go out that way?

Graham Yost: I think Tim was pitching that from, like, the first week. He wanted the dog to die. He »

Review: 'Justified' - 'Weight'

18 March 2014 8:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Justified" coming up just as soon as I have a pleather attaché... Early in "Weight," Ava tells a visiting Boyd that she sees no end in sight to her ever-worsening miseries. While I doubt this was intended as a meta comment about the prison storyline — or the Crowe family troubles, or any of this season's other weak spots — it unfortunately played out that way. And the thing is, "Weight" really didn't do anything to improve the many problematic areas of season 5 — other than killing off Danny Crowe, in one of the season's best (and, not coincidentally, most Elmore Leonard-esque) scenes — but the parts around the parts that aren't working were kind of terrific. I still don't care about the status of Boyd's heroin shipment, about Ava's struggle to open up a new drug pipeline into the prison, or about the petty squabbles and stupid loyalties of the Crowe clan. »

Sex in real life isn't like sex on screen – and that's a good thing

18 March 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Worried your sex life isn't like it looks on TV or in the movies? Don't be. Sex involving food, a piano or gunfire is never as fun as it sounds

When you've been brought up with pop culture as your unofficial guardian, it's easy to assume that you've been lumbered with the world's dullest sex life. You're forever comparing your experiences with those you see on screen, and you beat yourself up when you inevitably fall short.

For instance, not one single person has ever attempted to stab me to death with a pickaxe mid-coitus, like Sharon Stone did to that poor chump at the start of Basic Instinct. No union of mine has ever ended with my partner shooting a baddie in the chest on a moving train at the point of orgasm, like Cindy Crawford did in Fair Game. Nor, to my eternal annoyance, have I ever been »

Oscars 1999 Revisited

27 February 2014 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

After the Academy Award for Best Song was won by ‘It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp’ at the 2006 Oscars, host Jon Stewart quipped, ‘For those of you who are keeping score at home, I just want to make something very clear: Martin Scorsese, zero Oscars; Three 6 Mafia, one.’

If the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences specialises in one thing at a sophisticated level no other collaborative body could ever hope to match, it’s giving awards to the wrong people. Sometimes, it almost seems like a deliberate act of petulance. Try finding anyone outside of Robert Zemekis’s immediate family who considers Forrest Gump to be a better picture than Pulp Fiction (one win) or The Shawshank Redemption (IMDb’s Best Film Ever Made; no wins).

In 1999, The 71st Academy Awards became to many people, the apogee of undeserved Oscars and the rabid invective from »

TV: Jennifer Lopez to Headline NBC Cop Drama Shades of Blue

24 February 2014 11:30 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Jennifer Lopez doesn't get enough credit for her reinventions.  Since the early 1990s, the former Fly Girl has tried on as many showbiz hats as Madonna: fashion icon, Latin ingenue, pop star, businesswoman, rom-com sweetheart, American Idol judge, been-there-done-that diva. Not all of those subsidiaries of Jennifer Lopez Inc. proved viable, but the Out of Sight star's willingness to keep trying new things has certainly ensured her career longevity.  Now Lopez is poised for a comeback of sorts -- this time as a serious actress. Lopez will return to TV for the 2015-16 season as the lead in the NBC cop drama Shades of Blue. The Ryan Seacrest-produced show, which has already received a series order, will have Lopez playing Harlee McCord, "a single mother and dirty cop recruited to work undercover for the FBI's anti-corruption task force," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Her character will be "compromised by her [FBI] colleagues. »

Beetlejuice 2: Michael Keaton Confirms Talks with Tim Burton

14 February 2014 3:37 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will Michael Keaton be back as the "bio-exorcist" Betelgeuse in the long-gestating sequel Beetlejuice 2? He might be, but only if original director Tim Burton is involved.

Michael Keaton has only appeared in one sequel, reprising his role as Bruce Wayne in 1992's Batman Returns, which was also directed by Tim Burton (returning as Jackie Brown's Ray Nicolette in Out of Sight doesn't really count). Speaking with MTV, the actor claims that Betelgeuse is the one role he'd like to try again. And that he has had talks with Tim Burton. But nothing is set in stone just yet.

"I've e-mailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff until relatively recently. I always said that's the one thing I'd like to do again, if I ever did anything again. But it kind of required Tim to be involved some way or another. »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2007

4 February 2014 8:21 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 6 Feb 2014 - 06:08

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2007, and another 25 overlooked gems...

For some reason, the number three was a common factor in several blockbuster movies of 2007. The third film in the Pirates Of The Caribbean series (At World's End) dominated the box office, Spider-Man 3 marked Sam Raimi's last entry as director in the series, while Mike Myers went for a hat trick of hits with Shrek The Third.

I Am Legend was the third and most financially successful attempt to bring Richard Matheson's classic novel to the big screen, Rush Hour 3 marked Jackie Chan's last action pairing with Chris Tucker, while Zack Snyder's musky sword-swinger 300 was notable for having the number three in the title.

Iffy attempts at numerology aside, 2007 was also a superb for year for movies in general - particularly underappreciated ones, »

Vanity Fair 2014 "The Hollywood Issue" (Part 1)

4 February 2014 7:50 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Ah, our favorite magazine tradition. Vanity Fair's 20th Annual Hollywood Issue is upon us and the dozen stars selected they've selected are very carefully placed (they've read their own reviews). Instead of an all white lineup with a person of color shoved onto the back fold, this is an extremely careful, as if everything has been weighed on a scale: 12 actors, exactly equally split between both men and women, and skin color.

Of course both of those 50/50 visual situations are grossly unreflective of the actual business of Hollywood movies but we're not here to complain but to praise, it's fun to see the cover shaken up ever so slightly. If we were here to complain we'd probably say something about the lack of Asian actors (they never get their due here in America) but no one has ever asked The Film Experience to guest art-direct a cover.

George Clooney on the Epic Battle to Make ‘Monuments Men’

4 February 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The walls of his rustic chic home, tucked away on a quiet wooded street in Studio City, are graced with framed black-and-white photographs of gorgeous leading men from a bygone era: Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Gregory Peck and Paul Newman, among them. In his living room, next to all the regal portraits, there is a snapshot of him and then-Sen. Barack Obama side by side at a 2006 Washington, D.C., press conference concerning the genocide in Darfur. The walls of George Clooney’s abode — once owned by Gable himself — speak volumes about the man who is at once a charismatic star craving legendary fame and someone who thinks beyond the borders of insular Hollywood.

Meet Citizen Clooney.

The 52-year-old actor-director-producer is among a small group of celebrities, including power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, as well as Oprah, and Bono, who can shine a global camera on significant »
