This week’s new film events

26 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Glasgow Comic Con | Orson Welles: The Great Disruptor | Queer Vision | East End Film Festival

If your idea of a comic-book movie is limited to costumed superheroes saving the world from yet another CGI threat, you need to read more comic books, or watch more films. Fortunately, this festival gives you the chance to do both. Around the main event next weekend, it shows a handful of alternative comic-book movies. There’s the Daniel Clowes-adapted Ghost World (Tue), as good a film about growing up and fitting in as has ever been made. Or the equally fine American Splendor (Wed), with Paul Giamatti as outsider cartoonist Harvey Pekar.

Joining Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern is Judy Greer (last seen in Jurassic World) and Cheryl Hines (Larry David fans will need no introduction) in undisclosed roles. Harrelson will play the misanthropic outsider of the title, who makes one last-ditch effort to reconnect with his drug-addled ex-wife (Laura Dern) and a teenage daughter (Isabelle Amara) he's never met. Clowes also wrote the script for the film, which will be produced by Alexander Payne, Sam Raimi, and Josh Donen. »

Production Begins On Adaptation Of Dan Clowes’ ‘Wilson’ Starring Woody Harrelson; Full Cast Revealed

25 June 2015 3:01 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Ok, it’s not an Alexander Payne project as it once was which is slightly less exciting, but we’re still looking forward to Fox Searchlight’s upcoming, “Wilson,” an adaptation of celebrated work by graphic novelist Dan Clowes. His dark, hilarious cynical touch begat many terrific graphic novels and so far, two solid film adaptations: “Ghost World” and “Art School Confidential,” both directed by Terry Zwigoff. Payne was supposed to direct the adaptation of Clowes’ “Wilson,” the script of which he wrote himself, but it appears he’s been caught up with other work. But in his stead is Craig Johnson, who won critical plaudits from Sundance 2014 with the indie “The Skeleton Twins.” “Wilson” already features Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern and joining the cast announced today are Judy Greer (“Arrested Development”) and Cheryl Hines (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”). Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his. »

25 June 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Fox Searchlight Pictures has begun principal photography in Minnesota on Craig Johnson's  "Wilson," starring Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern, Judy Greer and Cheryl Hines. Daniel Clowes ("Ghost World") adapts his graphic novel.  Mary Jane Skalski and Jared Ian Goldman are producing.  The film is shooting on location in the St. Paul area. "Dan Clowes' script embraces elements that are funny, touching, charming and sweet. This film has everything, including Craig who is one of the most precise and smart directors around. It will be a joy to bring Wilson to the big screen," said producers Skalski and Goldman. Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he has never met. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her. »

The Five Cardinal Virtues of Tu dors Nicole

1 June 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Upon its Cannes premiere and ever since, Stéphane Lafleur’s Tu dors Nicole (You’re Sleeping Nicole) was instantly and endlessly pegged as the Québécois equivalent of Frances Ha. Understandable, given that it’s a black-and-white portrait of two close girlfriends’ extended falling-out as one conspicuously matures while the other flounders aimlessly. Still, Nicole‘s tempered acridness and emphasis on the annoyances of minimum-wage jobs taken upon reluctant entrance to the working world makes Ghost World a closer point of reference. Despite taking place at a post-undergrad time in its characters’ lives, the vibe is similarly very high school (minus the unpleasantness and pain that can come with that terrain): […] »

Woody Harrelson & Laura Dern are in talks for a Daniel Clowes comic book film

29 May 2015 4:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern are in talks for an adaptation of Daniel Clowes's graphic novel Wilson.

The True Detective and Fault in Our Stars actors are in negotiations for the film from Skeleton Twins director Craig Johnson, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Harrelson will take on the title role of the middle-aged misanthrope, who tries to connect with his troubled ex-wife (Dern) and estranged daughter, after the death of his father.

The story centres around his painful attempts to reform their family unit.

We say 'The Fault in Our Stars', but of course you all know Dern best from Jurassic Park. Harrelson will be seen in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, Triple 9 and By Way of Helena.

Clowes, who worked on the other previous films based on his work - Ghost World and Art School Confidential - wrote the script for Wilson. »

Daniel Clowes Wants to Revisit His 'Ghost World' Characters, Talks 'Wilson' Film

28 May 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Eccentric author and illustrator Daniel Clowes twice adapted his own funny-sad comic books to the screen for director Terry Zwigoff. Before 2006's "Art School Confidential," there was "Ghost World," the 2001 cult classic starring Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson as a pair of misanthropic misfits drifting out of high school and through their hilariously pathetic suburban wasteland world. Well, in a new interview with The Guardian, Clowes admits that he may want to revisit the beloved "Ghost World" characters that got him a screenplay Oscar nom (which, by the by, he should have won). Before appearing in book form in 1997, the "Ghost World" story was serialized throughout the '90s in his "Eightball" series, which gets the anthology treatment this July. "I’ve thought about doing the 'Ghost World' girls as adults," Clowes says. "I think one day I may just revisit all the characters. I may do something. »

Woody Harrelson And Laura Dern To Meet Wilson

27 May 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Nine years on from the last comic-to-screen adaptation of Daniel Clowes' work, things are finally coming together for Wilson. Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern are in talks to star in the film, which Clowes himself has scripted and Craig Johnson will direct. Sam Raimi is among the producers.The 2010 graphic novel revolves around the titular misanthrope: an opinionated loner who loves his dog but finds people harder to get along with. He tries though, often haranguing total strangers on a variety of subjects. But when his father dies, leaving him completely starved of human relationships, he sets out to find his junkie ex-wife, learns he has a teenage daughter he never knew about, and tries for a last haphazard stab at family life. Harrelson will play Wilson, with Dern his ex-wife. Clowes' previous excursions into film were Ghost World and Art School Confidential, both of which had Terry Zwigoff calling the shots. »

Comics Legend Daniel Clowes on Hate Mail, Jim Belushi, and Not Forgiving Shia Labeouf

27 May 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Say what you will about Shia Labeouf: When it comes to artistic theft, at least he has good taste in his stolen goods. In 2013, he was revealed to have lifted a story by the venerable cartoonist Dan Clowes and used it, uncredited, in a short film. A bizarre battle ensued, involving cease-and-desist letters, insincere Twitter apologies, and cryptic skywriting. It’s all died down now, and it’s safe to say that Clowes won in the court of public opinion. Plus, while Labeouf’s directing career has never taken off, Clowes’s comics work is as vital as it’s ever been. The writer/artist has been crafting unmistakable stories and artwork for nearly 30 years. Although he’s perhaps best known for Ghost World — a tale of adolescent friendship that he helped adapt into an acclaimed 2001 film — his bibliography is extensive and varied. He’s penned everything from a »

The Best B-Movies of the 21st Century

26 May 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The constant big-budget movie releases with their A-list stars, state of the art technology, and expensive advertising campaigns can make it easy to forget that most of the movie industry just doesn’t have that kind of money. Most filmmakers are working with limited resources, yet producing films that are in many cases better than those big money movies. Other filmmakers work with even less, producing films that, in the end, are often relegated to the more obscure cable channels and the bargain bin at Amazon. B-movies have been called Hollywood’s stepchild, but what they really are is its life blood.

Only a few of these films make money, but they have a greater value than simply being good for business: they are good for filmmaking. With little money, no stars, scripts that are disjointed, and often featuring poor production values, the B-movie is the primordial ooze from which new talent and ideas crawl. »

Why 2001 was the best year in film history

28 April 2015 12:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. "Mulholland Drive." "Donnie Darko." "Spirited Away." "Ghost World." "The Royal Tenenbaums." "Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring." "Wet Hot American Summer." "Pulse." "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." If you're not stunned by the sheer variety of greatness in the above list of films, you probably won't be on board with my argument for 2001 as the greatest year in movie history. And if you're puzzled by the exclusion of "A Beautiful Mind," then you might as well stop reading now. "A Beautiful Mind," of course, won Best Picture at the Oscars the following year, an honor that felt undeserved at the time and positively baffles in hindsight. The Ron Howard-directed drama was an ephemeral triumph, the kind of middle-of-the-road Hollywood »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »
