Vincenzo Natali No Longer Directing Neuromancer

20 May 2015 5:09 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There's good and bad news this morning for anyone following the tortuous and slow development of Neuromancer. The good news is that the adaptation of William Gibson's cyberpunk classic is still out there and has just secured some new funding. The bad news is that the long-attached Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice) is no longer directing. And with him has gone the Gibson-approved screenplay that was supposed to have been cracked.The UK-based Gfm films remain in play on the project, and the company has now partnered with the Chinese C2M Media Group for co-financing and further development. Producer Lucas Foster (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Man On Fire) is currently in talks with unspecified new writers and a new director.Published in 1984 (two years after Blade Runner, which, when he saw it, almost caused him to stop writing), William Gibson's book was part of the vanguard of the cyberpunk movement. »

Cube director adapting Stephen King and Joe Hill novella In the Tall Grass

10 May 2015 8:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice) has signed on to direct an adaptation of In the Tall Grass, a 2012 novella from Stephen King and his son Joe Hill, which centres on a brother and sister on a cross country road trip who find themselves fighting for their lives after reponding to a young boy’s cries for help coming from an overgrown field.

“Who would think that grass could be frightening,” Natali tells Screen Daily. “Trust Stephen King and Joe Hill to find a way. They have transformed an otherwise innocuous Kansas field into a stage for some of the most disturbing horror fiction I have ever read. When they go to assist the boy, they discover that strange forces are at work. Space is warped so that one minute they are together and the next they are miles apart. The field is an ineffable maze from which there is no escape. »

A 'Cube' Remake Is In The Works With 'Prometheus' and 'Doctor Strange' Writer

6 May 2015 | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you were a sci-fi fan in the late '90s or early '00s, chances are at one point you either said to someone or had someone say to you, "Dude, you haven't haven't seen Cube? You have got to see Cube!" Vincenzo Natali's strangers-trapped-in-a-maze science fiction puzzler was a regular mainstay of video stores and VHS/DVD swaps after it started blowing minds in 1997, so much so that it's actually a little surprising it's taken nearly 15+ years for a remake to get off the ground. There have been two sequels to Cube since then (Cube 2: Hypercube is actually kind of great), but they both went straight to home video. There's a chance this new version is heading to the big screen, though, thanks to some heavy hitting talent. The Hollywood...

9 incredible low-budget science fiction movies: Moon, Monsters, Primer

2 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The advent of nimble digital cameras and cutting edge visual effects has meant that filmmakers have been able to mount increasingly ambitious sci-fi stories on relatively small budgets.

This week sees the release of Monsters: Dark Continent, a follow-up to Gareth Edwards' brilliant 2010 debut Monsters. Not only did Monsters shoot Edwards to the big time, putting him in the director's chair for Godzilla and next year's Star Wars: Rogue One, but it also only cost less than $500,000 to make.

Below, we look at 11 incredible science fiction movies that prove you can make a great movie for just a fraction of what Avengers: Age of Ultron cost ($280 million, apparently!).

Cult sci-fi film Cube set for remake at Lionsgate

2 May 2015 1:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lionsgate is reportedly readying a remake of the cult 1997 Canadian sci-fi film Cube.

Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) is on-board as one of the producers, with director Saman Kesh, whose short Controller has turned some heads in Hollywood, set to make his feature debut with the film, which will be entitled Cubed. Philip Gawthorne, who has cut his teeth on British shows such as Eastenders and Holby City, is set to pen the screenplay.

The original film, directed by Vincenzo Natali, sees seven complete strangers of widely varying personality characteristics are involuntarily placed in an endless kafkaesque maze containing deadly traps.

Lionsgate Developing 'Cubed', a Remake of the Horror Sci-Fi 'Cube'

1 May 2015 9:33 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It looks like Hollywood may be running out of well-known titles from the past to remake, because now they're reaching into the late 90s for a cult sci-fi horror film for inspiration. THR reports Lionsgate is developing a remake of the 1997 flick Cube. The film is being described as a reimagining of the original film and is going by the title Cubed this time. The first film came from Splice director Vincenzo Natali, but this time it will be up and coming director Saman Kesh behind the camera to update the project for audiences 18 years later. In addition, Prometheus writer Jon Spaihts is on board to produce with Roy Lee. Read on! If you want to get acquainted with Saman Kesh, here's his acclaimed short Controller: The new film will use the same premise as the original film with seven strangers finding themselves trapped in a giant cube structure. »

Lionsgate Moving Forward With Reboot Of Cult Sci-Fi Horror Film Cube

1 May 2015 9:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lionsgate is reportedly pushing ahead with a reboot of cult 90s horror film Cube, though it appears there may be a twist in the tale in what the studio is describing as a “re-imagining.”

Vincenzo Natali’s 1997 original was a low-key, psychological film that followed seven strangers imprisoned within the titular structure. It was a simple, yet brilliant concept, raising questions of morality as the inhabitants decided whether to help one another, or pursue their own best interests and escape the Cube at the cost of the others. Natali’s horror spawned both a sequel and a prequel in the early 2000s, though Lionsgate is preparing to flip the concept on its head for this modern retelling under the new moniker, Cubed.

Per The Hollywood Reporter:

Using the original setup of seven strangers trapped in a giant cube-like structure, Cubed is described as a sci-fi survival thriller about artificial intelligence, »

Remake of Cube (1997) Moving Forward at Lionsgate

1 May 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It contained 17,576 rooms filled with life-ending obstacles. The titular object in Vincenzo Natali's 1997 thriller, Cube, foreshadowed the psychological and physical torment of the Saw traps to come. If you were unlucky enough to wake up inside it, you were going to have one hell of a time trying to get out. Lionsgate, however, is willingly returning to the cube's confines. The studio is moving forward on a remake of the original film, with a director, writer, and pair of producers already in place.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Saman Kesh is lined up for the director's chair on the Cube remake, which is titled Cubed. Kesh, who helmed the impressive sci-fi short, Controller, will work from a screenplay by Philip Gawthorne (based on a story angle by Kesh). Roy Lee and Jon Spaihts are producing the project, with Vertigo's Adam Stone overseeing it.

‘Cube’ Reconfigured For 21st Century

30 April 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Nowadays if you say the word “Cube” people think of the lacklustre game show hosted by Phillip Schofield. Viewers with long memories however may remember Cube, a sci-fi horror movie with a neat central concept from the late Nineties.

It followed seven strangers trying to escape a booby-trapped futuristic prison, predating the likes of Saw, and made an impression due to its imagination in the face of a low budget. Vincenzo Natali was the writer/director of the Canadian effort.

Saman Kesh is reportedly to create a reboot of the film, alongside producers Roy Lee and Jon Spaihts. Whilst Kesh’s name may not ring any bells, Lee produced The Lego Movie and Spaihts wrote Prometheus, though it’s not known whether he’ll be on scripting duties also.

UK TV watchers may be interested to know the Horror Channel is airing Cube, if you want to get an idea »

Horrific Thriller Cube Is Getting A Remake

30 April 2015 10:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The internet is a really effective job creator, especially if you're a filmmaker just waiting to be noticed. Already, we've seen short films turn the likes of Carl Rinsch, Neill Blomkamp, and Shane Acker into feature film directors who were given the keys to a new ride after convincing some Hollywood types that they were ready. Though, to be fair, the results of those men and their efforts range from impressive to middling, and their careers are still in need of a bit of a jump start. If he's lucky, recently noticed filmmaker Saan Kesh could be the one to break the curse, and he's got an interesting concept to possibly strike it rich with: he's re-imagining Vincenzo Natali's Canadian sci-fi cult classic, Cube. The Hollywood Reporter has scooped the knowledge that Kesh, an up-and-coming filmmaker who's already got an iron in the fire with a feature adaptation of »
