Former DreamWorks chiefs to produce drug-smuggling drama 'See No Evil'

14 April 2014 4:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The husband-and-wife producer team of Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald have a pretty interesting résumé, as these things go: their credits range from blockbusters like "Men in Black" to specialty passion projects like Guillermo Arriaga's "The Burning Plain." In their 12-year tenure as founding presidents of DreamWorks, they shepherded the likes of "Gladiator," "Minority Report" and "Sweeney Todd"; more recently, away from the studio, they collaborated with Paramount on the Denzel Washington vehicle "Flight." (Parkes, meanwhile, has been Oscar-nominated for producing "Awakenings" and the documentary "The California Reich," as well as for writing "WarGames.") So while they produce their share of filler too (take your time, "Men in Black 4"), when they team up on something more interesting-sounding, the results are often notable.   In this case, the project is "See You Evil," a drama to be adapted by screenwriter Kurt Wimmer ("Salt," "The Thomas Crown Affair") from an article by Brendan I. »

Kidman, Firth, Fassbender Team On "Genius"

10 April 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Railway Man" stars Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth are set to re-team on the long-developing drama "Genius" which also stars Michael Fassbender.

Based on A. Scott Berg's National Book Award winning biography "Max Perkins: Editor of Genius", the story deals with the real-life tender and complex friendship between literary giant Thomas Wolfe (Fassbender) and renowned editor Max Perkins (Firth).

Wolfe became famous from a young age for both his talent and larger-than-life personality. Perkins is one of the most respected literary editors of all time who discovered talent such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway.

While most writers struggle with their words, Wolfe had the opposite problem and butted heads with Perkins who demanded he keep to a tight word limit. It was a volatile relationship, but one that changed both their lives.

John Logan ("Skyfall," "Gladiator") penned the script This would mark Kidman and Firth's third collaboration together, »

Dwayne Johnson Talks Hercules, Using Yak Hair, Working with Brett Ratner, Almost Getting Russell Crowe on Board, and More

7 April 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last week at CinemaCon, I was able to participate in a great roundtable interview with Dwayne Johnson for his upcoming film Hercules.  Not to be confused with the Hercules movie that came out earlier this year, Brett Ratner’s take on the Greek legend is billed as “a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist.”  The story takes place after Hercules’ famous 12 labors, and has him “traveling with a group of mercenaries and cashing in on his famous name until he’s hired to train an army for an epic battle.”  As you can see in the trailer, Johnson looks like he's having a lot of fun in the role.  The film also stars John Hurt, Ian McShaneJoseph FiennesPeter Mullan, Rufus Sewell, Robert Maillet, and Irina Shayk.  Hercules opens in 3D on July 25th.

‘Penny Dreadful’ Featurette: We All Have Demons

5 April 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Capitalizing on our fascination with the supernatural and the macabre, Showtime’s Penny Dreadful presents a world where some of fiction’s most frightening characters – like Dracula, Dr. Frankenstein, and his creation – mingle with the equally curious and frightening residents of an alternate Victorian London.

Other than its initial pretense of folding well-known literary characters into one story, much of what’s happening in Penny Dreadful is shrouded in mystery. The few trailers and character descriptions have shed a little light on what we can expect from the series, created by Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Logan (Gladiator, Skyfall), but what brings these outcasts together is yet unknown.

Even with its mysterious premise, Penny Dreadful‘s cast alone makes the series worthy of being on your radar. Eva Green (Casino Royale, 300: Rise of an Empire) appears to be at ...

'Game of Thrones': Jack Gleeson reveals the meanest thing he's ever done

3 April 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

What if the sadistic teen bully from your high school nightmares was given unlimited power to rule the world? That’s King Joffrey as played by Jack Gleeson, who torments the Seven Kingdoms on HBO’s Game of Thrones with his petty, juvenile cruelty and preening, witless arrogance. As Thrones’ producers often point out, the character’s personality is radically different from the 21-year-old actor, who shuns media attention, studies philosophy as a scholar at Trinity College, and recently gave a speech about the evils of celebrity culture that went viral.

Spectacle and Sacrament: How Hollywood’s depiction of The Bible has Evolved

3 April 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Biblical Proportions

Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. 

Genesis 6:11-13

The world we inhabit is a violent one, rife with chaos and destruction both man-made and of natural, or perhaps, depending upon your personal series of beliefs, divine origins. It has been this way for decades, centuries, since the moment Eve took a big juicy bite out of that shiny red apple and killed all of the dinosaurs. History has taught us that human nature, irrespective of how many eons of evolution it is filtered through, remains animalistic. »
