Exclusive: Producer Frank Marshall Video Interview -- He talks about Benjamin Button, The Last Airbender, Indiana Jones, and says they hope to be filming the next Bourne this summer

17 December 2008 | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you don’t know Frank Marshall’s name, you really need to check out his IMDb page and look over his resume. As a producer, he’s made over 80 movies and they’re not the small indies you haven’t seen. He’s helped to make the “Indiana Jones” movies, “The Warriors”, “Gremlins”, “Back to the Future”, “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, “The Sixth Sense”, The Bourne Movies, and a ton of other films that you probably love. So when I got an opportunity to speak with him at the recent “Curious Case of Benjamin Button” press junket, I could’ve spent hours talking about his past work. But while it would’ve made me extremely happy to do that (and maybe a few of you), I decided to spend my limited time focusing on his upcoming projects like “The Last Airbender”, the next Bourne movie, Indiana Jones 5, and of »

M. Night Shyamalan Gathers Cast For "The Last Airbender"

10 December 2008 2:22 AM, PST | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

M. Night Shyamalan has gathered the cast for the upcoming live-action film based on the anime-inspired Nickelodeon animated series, "The Last Airbender."

Last year, MTV Films and Nickelodeon Movies announced that they have signed "The Sixth Sense" filmmaker to write, direct and produce a trilogy of live-action films based on the popular cartoon.

Now, Shyamalan has found the youngsters set to play the lead roles, who are likely to become household names by the time the first of three films open in July 2010.

Noah Ringer will be playing the lead role of 12-year-old Aang. Jackson Rathbone, whose film credits include the smash hit "Twilight," will play Aang's friend Sokka, while Nicola Peltz will play his sister Katara.

Osment Quit Booze After DUI Arrest

3 December 2008 11:12 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former child star Haley Joel Osment quit alcohol at the age of 18, after he was caught driving drunk in Hollywood in 2006.

The Sixth Sense actor was deeply shamed by the incident, which earned him a hefty fine and probation, as well as a mandatory rehab stint and Alcoholics Anonymous course.

Osment vowed to stop drinking completely until he turns 21 and is able to buy his own booze legally.

Two-and-a-half years on, the actor is approaching the landmark - he turns 21 in April 2009 - and he is proud to have confronted his demons and served his punishment.

He say, "It was an example of someone just out of high school being extremely irresponsible. There's no excuse for that.

"I learned my lesson. I made a bad decision, and it's something you can't run from." »

**Note: This will be at the top of the page for a while to give everyone a chance to complete their shopping lists!**

With the holiday shopping season officially upon us, I figured it might be a good idea to start making some recommendations for the lucky horror-loving folks on your lists!

Being that Blu-ray has officially been accepted as the next step in home video entertainment, I expect that a lot of PlayStation 3's and stand-alone Blu-ray players are going to be pretty hot items this year, but what of the movies available for them? If you already own the DVD of your favorite flick, is there a need to replace it with a Blu-ray? I'm here to answer all of your questions in the first annual ...

Clint Eastwood to Direct Supernatural Thriller "Hereafter"

16 November 2008 2:39 PM, PST | www.ohmygore.com/ | See recent OhMyGore news »

Clint Eastwood is in talks to direct the supernatural thriller "Hereafter" for DreamWorks. The plot details are being kept under wraps (as usual), but it is described as in the vein of "The Sixth Sense" (no thanks). Kathleen Kennedy is producing. The company, led by principals Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider, picked up the spec penned by "Frost/Nixon" scribe Peter Morgan in March when it was still a part of Paramount Pictures. DreamWorks held onto the project as part of its separation pact with the Melrose studio and has been wooing Eastwood to board the project for months. »

Weekend Movie News Wrap Up: November 16, 2008

16 November 2008 9:33 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

This week:

Spielberg and Eastwood visit the Hereafter; Len Wiseman drives a Motorcade; Guillermo del Toro plays with Pinocchio; George Miller has Happy Feet again and Matthew McConaughey and David O. Russell fight with The Grackle.

 

Box Office

James Bond captured the top spot of the Us box office with an amazing $71 million. The weekend take of Quantum of Solace was higher than any previous Bond entry in the series, and it highlights Daniel Craig’s popularity in the iconic role.

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa took the runner up position with another $32 million giving the animated animal film an amazing $100 million. Role Models continues to impress with another $11.5 million in the bank, High School Musical 3: Senior Year grossed another $5.5 million bringing its total to $84million. While this is far from a bad gross (considering its low budget) it must be slightly disappointing for Disney.

Clint Eastwood Directing 'Sixth Sense' Style Thriller?

14 November 2008 12:21 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

After tackling World War II with Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima Clint Eastwood moved farther back in time to the 1930s with Changeling and he will jump back to the future with Gran Torino with a Dirty Harry style character that no likey the neighbors. So to say I didn't expect his next flick to be a thriller described as in the same vein as M. Night Shyamalan's The Sixth Sense would be a lie, but I am definitely intrigued. Variety tells us the film is titled Hereafter and outside of knowing Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon and The Queen) wrote it I have nothing else for you. Apparently the film was part of the Paramount/DreamWorks pact and when that alliance dissolved DreamWorks kept control of the property and has since been wooing Eastwood into the director's chair with Playboy bunnies, fast cars and Geritol. »

Clint Eastwood To Direct... A Horror?

13 November 2008 11:56 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Clint Eastwood has tackled pretty much every genre you can think of as a director, from Westerns to sci-fi (who can forget Space Cowboys?) to cop thrillers and even war movies.But the great man has never taken on horror – and if you think that we’re about to say ‘until now’, you’d be on the money.Eastwood is in talks with DreamWorks to direct Hereafter, a spec script by the so-hot-right-now Frost/Nixon scribe, Peter Morgan. Plot details are under wraps, but the script is apparently in the same vein as The Sixth Sense, which sounds about right for Clint these days. A graceful and elegant director, not for him a balls-to-the-wall slasher pic, but rather an understated and haunting ghost story.Kathleen Kennedy will produce the movie, which DreamWorks held onto when it broke away from Paramount earlier this year. A concerted campaign to woo Eastwood then »

Clint Eastwood on for Hereafter

13 November 2008 11:46 PM, PST | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

DreamWorks has pitched the job of directing Hereafter, written by Frost/Nixon scribe Peter Morgan to Clint Eastwood. Steven Spielberg nabbed Morgan’s spec script back in March when DreamWorks and Paramount were happily married companies. Since the split, he’s held on to the rights. And even since then, Spielberg has been camped out on Eastwood’s lawn, trying to get him to direct it. The Sixth Sense Variety reports that DreamWorks is refusing to divulge the plot, though it has apparently been described as... .

Clint Eastwood and Steven Spielberg Team Up for Hereafter

13 November 2008 10:42 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Steven Spielberg's newly independent DreamWorks is in talks with Clint Eastwood to direct a supernatural thriller titled Hereafter. Unfortunately no actual details about the story have been revealed yet, except that it has been described as "in the vein of The Sixth Sense." As we all know, Eastwood directed two complete films this year alone - Changeling and Gran Torino - but he's not retiring from directing just yet. DreamWorks adamantly held onto this project during their split with Paramount and has been trying to get Eastwood to sign on for months. Sounds like something potentially very interesting? As far as I can remember, Eastwood has never directed anything like a supernatural thriller before, making this a first for him, even at 78 years old. Spielberg last produced both Flags of Our Fathers and Letters From Iwo Jima, and although there were some pacing problems with each, both films at »

Clint Eastwood is in talks to direct the supernatural thriller Hereafter for DreamWorks. The plot details are being kept under wraps (as usual), but it is described as in the vein of "The Sixth Sense" (no thanks). Kathleen Kennedy (Spielberg's regular producing partner) is producing.

Eastwood, Spielberg to go supernatural

13 November 2008 8:50 PM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Variety reports that Hollywood powerhouses Clint Eastwood (pictured) and Steven Spielberg are in talks to collaborate on the supernatural thriller Hereafter. Eastwood would direct the film for Spielberg’s DreamWorks company.

Scripted by Peter Morgan, who has recently made his name with historical dramas such as The Queen, The Last King Of Scotland and the upcoming Frost/Nixon, The Hereafter is described as being similar to The Sixth Sense, but no story details are forthcoming as of now. DreamWorks first acquired the screenplay earlier this year and hung onto the project when it recently split from Paramount Pictures, and has apparently been discussing it with Eastwood for some time now. The latter previously helmed the WWII duo Flags Of Our Fathers and Letters From Iwo Jima for Spielberg and the studios; this would mark his first directorial outing in the scare genre since his early-’70s films The Beguiled and Play Misty For Me. »

Eastwood to Enter the Hereafter?

13 November 2008 8:14 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Variety reports tonight that the legendary actor and director Clint Eastwood is in talks with Dreamworks to take on the job of directing a supernatural thriller ominously dubbed Hereafter.

Little is known about the film, besides the offhand comment that it is in the same vein as The Sixth Sense, a fact both intriguing and mildly worrisome. What is obvious is Dreamworks' soaring confidence in the project; earlier in the year it was revealed that the Hereafter script was optioned for a seven-figure dollar amount. Couple that high price optioning along with their courting of such an accomplished (and expensive) figure as Eastwood, and you obviously have a company that feels they have a hot and scary item on their hands.

Going by Eastwood's earlier films, the project is likely to be restrained, moody, and atmospheric. Perhaps the time is right for an effective and creepy ghost story. Audiences have »

Spielberg, Eastwood re-team?

13 November 2008 5:55 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Although it's still in preliminary stages, Steven Spielberg, proud owner of a little script called Hereafter, is reported to be wooing Old Man Oscar himself, Clint Eastwood, to direct the project. Although plot details are being kept secret, the script was held onto by Spielberg when he split with Paramount earlier this year, meaning that it's most likely quality stuff. Written by the same dude who wrote Frost/Nixon, it is described as being in the same vein as The Sixth Sense. If »

Eastwood to Direct Supernatural Hereafter

13 November 2008 | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

When word started to trickle out that Clint Eastwood was helming a film called The Changeling , many immediately jumped to the conclusion that was a remake of the supernatural chiller of the same name starring George C. Scott. Eastwood may now officially be taking on a genre project. According to Variety , he's in talks to direct the previously announced Hereafter by scribe Peter Morgan ( Frost/Nixon ). Kathleen Kennedy is producing. Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider are shepherding the project for Dreamworks and plot details are still being kept under wraps, but it is described as in the vein of The Sixth Sense . »

Shyamalan, Quarantine filmmakers team for Devil

29 October 2008 1:07 PM, PDT | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Variety reports that M. Night Shyamalan (pictured) has set the first of three fright features he’ll make under the Night Chronicles banner, as part of a previously reported pact with Media Rights Capital. The movie, simply titled Devil, will be directed by Quarantine’s John Erick Dowdle, who’ll also executive-produce with his brother Drew.

The screenplay was written by Brian Nelson, who wrote Hard Candy and co-scripted 30 Days Of Night for David Slade, and worked here from an original story by Shyamalan. The latter will serve as producer on Devil with Sam Mercer, who has collaborated with Shyamalan from The Sixth Sense to this year’s The Happening. Perhaps as a reaction to the disappointing box office of that highly touted R-rated thriller, Devil is shooting for a PG-13. Filming will begin next year; a distributor has yet to be secured. »

"The Happening" DVD Review. Shyamalan's demise?

27 October 2008 9:52 AM, PDT | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

M. Night Shyamalan reminds me of Stephen King at times. His projects keep one riveted throughout the entire duration with unique, original storytelling…all the way until an awfully drab ending. Occasionally, there are ones that hold the tension and find an ending which leaves viewers satisfied with a well-invested, time spent at the movies. The greatest Shyamalan example of this would be “The Sixth Sense” blockbuster starring Bruce Willis. Personally, I’ve liked all of Shyamalan’s work, even this film I’ll enjoy revisiting from time to time simply for, as I stated previously, the unique filmmaking experience. However, “The Happening,” like “Lady in the Water,” lacks enough of the filmmaker’s previous magic to capture the audience’s attention. If Shyamalan carries on as such, distributors will start dropping like flies due to the lack of return on investment. »
