The Night Of is the TV Crime Drama We Need Right Now

11 July 2016 10:35 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Drawing influences from The Wire, this HBO show boldly tackles race in the face of the criminal justice system.

After a string of disappointments and a lot of drama, HBO can finally rest easy with its promising summer murder mystery series The Night Of. Based on the BBC show Criminal Justice, The Night Of follows Nasir “Nas” Khan (Riz Ahmed), a smart young Pakistani American who finds himself at the center of a police investigation after a night on the town goes horribly wrong. The show recalls the procedural aspects of Law and Order and True Detective, but operates more like The Wire in its examination of race and the criminal justice system through the eyes of the investigators and the accused. The show’s first episode, titled “The Beach,” breaks down the events of “the night of” as Nas remembers it, and then some. In true procedural fashion, we get to play detective and guess what »

Joe Pesci unlikely to appear in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman

19 May 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having finally reached a deal to bring The Irishman to the screen at Cannes after a fierce bidding war, Martin Scorsese’s plans for his long-gestating adaptation of Charles Brandt’s bestselling book I Heard You Paint Houses have suffered a setback, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that there’s a big question mark over the involvement of Joe Pesci.

According to the site, Pesci – who has not appeared on screen since 2010’s Love Ranch – has “repeatedly has told Scorsese no” with regards to appearing in the project, which will star both Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. However, the article also states that the director “remains hopeful” that he can convince his Goodfellas star to come out of retirement for the movie.

The Irishman follows the “biggest mob hit in history” and will see De Niro as Frank Sheeran, who on his deathbed claimed to have killed Jimmy Hoffa, »

'The Irishman': Will Joe Pesci Work With Martin Scorsese Again on New Mob Film?

18 May 2016 10:29 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Without a doubt, Goodfellas ranks up there as one of the best mobster flicks ever to hit the big screens. With its engaging story, gritty realism, and incredibly off-kilter -- characters, it manages to hold up as an entertaining classic of cinema. Of course, the film was directed by filmmaking master Martin Scorsese, who has re-visited the mob film a few times since Goodfellas.

Scorsese is once again returning to the genre with the upcoming film The Irishman, which just locked down Stx as the movie's international distributor. The movie is written by Gangs Of New York writer Steve Zaillian, and is set to star Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino -- two more all-time greats.

One of the big questions, however, is whether or not Joe Pesci will be in the film. Pesci won an Oscar for his role in 1990s Goodfellas, but despite that, he's kept his number of roles in movies relatively low, »

Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman could finally be on its way

7 May 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Paramount Pictures is reportedly closing on a deal that could finally see Martin Scorsese’s long-gestating project The Irishman go before the cameras.

A deal is close for the film with Paramount, who are in control of the project, set to finalise details to sell the international rights to Fabrica de Cine before the Cannes Film Festival starts next week. The deal is 50/50 according the site, with a projected budget for the film of around $100 million the possible sticking point.

The Irishman has been mooted for a few years now as a reunion project for Scorsese and actors Robert de Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. The project is based on author Charles Brandt’s book I Heard You Paint Houses, which tells “the deathbed story from mob hitman Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran about the disappearance and death of Jimmy Hoffa” and has been scripted by »

Bono Loves the Kids from Sing Street: 'U2 Were Not as Good'

28 April 2016 7:55 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Bono has the sweetest things to say about Ireland's most talked about indie film, Sing Street. The U2 lead singer posted a statement on Wednesday about the movie, which tells the story of an up and coming young rock band in the '80s. "I remember the 1980s with somewhat of a blush. No man’s hair should be bigger than his girlfriend's. But that was the time. Dublin in Technicolor. In reality it was monochrome and in the grip of a recession, But on video tape, you could be transported," Bono wrote. "You could wear what you liked, and the more outrageous the better. »

Mel Gibson to direct, star in TV series The Barbary Coast, eOne to distribute

19 April 2016 5:28 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Mel Gibson and Dean Semler on the set of 2006's Apocalypto.

In what will be his first TV credit since 1981's Tickled Pink, starring Jacki Weaver and Max Gillies, Mel Gibson will direct, co-write and star in The Barbary Coast for the Mark Gordon Company.

Kate Hudson and her foster dad, Kurt Russell, the latter of whom starred with Gibson in 1988's Tequila Sunrise, are also on board.

As first reported by Deadline, the series will be "inspired by" Herbert Asbury's book The Barbary Coast, about the birth of San Francisco. Asbury also wrote the book on which Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York was based..

The Gold Rush in 1849 saw a mass migration of fortune-seekers to San Francisco, and The Barbary Coast will take place in the "unique criminal district" that arose there and lasted seventy years, in what sounds like a west-coast, nineteenth century version of Boardwalk Empire. »

Mel Gibson To Direct TV Series 'The Barbary Coast,' Kate Hudson & Kurt Russell To Star

18 April 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Has Hollywood forgiven Mel Gibson? If some doors still remain closed to the actor and filmmaker following his meltdown, a lot more are opening. Later this summer, Gibson leads the lean B-movie "Blood Father" (okay, it's currently only set to open in Australia, but still), and he's got his next directorial effort in the can, the wartime drama "Hacksaw Ridge" starring Andrew Garfield. Now, he's set to take his growing comeback to TV. Gibson will direct and co-write "The Barbary Coast." He'll be guiding Kurt Russell and Kate Hudson, and taking a role himself, in the adaptation of "Gangs Of New York" author Herbert Asbury's book about The Gold Rush era of San Francisco, and seamy criminal culture that emerged. Here's the book synopsis:  The history of the Barbary Coast properly begins with the gold rush to California in 1849. If the precious yellow metal hadn't been discovered ... the development »

Watch: First Trailer For Steve Zaillian's HBO Limited Series 'The Night Of' Starring John Turturro And Riz Ahmed

18 April 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last week, we dove into the recent troubles HBO has been having, but let's be clear: when all the cylinders are firing, they still have some of the best programming around. This summer, they're unveiling a limited series that looks like it could be a knockout. Screenwriter and director Steve Zaillian ("Moneyball," "Gangs Of New York," "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo") has gone behind the camera for "The Night Of" starring John Turturro and Riz Ahmed, directing seven of the show's eight episodes (James Marsh of "The Theory Of Everything" fame, has helmed one episode). The exact plot details remain under wraps, but the drama will detail the police investigation, the legal proceedings, the criminal justice system and the feral purgatory of Rikers Island, where the accused await trial for felony crimes. Co-starring Michael Kenneth Williams, Bill Camp, Jeannie Berlin, Poorna Jagannathan, Payman Maadi, Glenne Headly, Amara »

Lennart Bjorck, International Distribution Exec, Dies at 91

12 April 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lennart Bjorck, who worked for Paramount Pictures and Columbia Pictures and formed his own company, Bjorck Film Corp., representing international distributors, died March 28 in Morro Bay, Calif. He was 91.

After decades working in international film distribution for various companies, Bjorck moved to Los Angeles in 1975, where he formed his own company, Bjorck Film Corp., a pioneering film company representing international distributors. He created the bridge that was needed culturally and the timing was right as the indie business was in its nascent form. He and his son and partner, Lars Bjorck, became an important part of the business in Los Angeles.

In 2001 Bjorck Film Corp. was purchased by company president Penny Karlin and VP Kelly Green, who formed Karlin-Green Media. Bjorck stayed on for a time as a consultant. At that point the company had recently been involved in projects including Michelle Pfeiffer-Sean Penn starrer “I Am Sam, »

Academy Awards Film Series: Scorsese's Spielbergian Biopic Comes Crashing Down Each Time After Take-Off

19 March 2016 9:35 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Aviator' movie with Leonardo DiCaprio as bizarre billionaire Howard Hughes: Bloated biopic. 'The Aviator' movie review: What's not good for the Spruce Goose… Imagine Citizen Kane directed by the Steven Spielberg of The Color Purple, Schindler's List, Amistad, and Saving Private Ryan. The final result would look something like a Barry Levinson film – for instance, the superficial and phony Bugsy. Or, an even more appropriate example, the superficial, phony, and bloated The Aviator. Except, of course, that Levinson is not the man responsible for the 2004 mega-production starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the eccentric, billionaire ladies' man Howard Hughes. Strangely enough, that man is Martin Scorsese, the director of hard-hitting films such as Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, and Gangs of New York. Scorsese, a fan of Old Hollywood, apparently wanted to have some fun with the reported $110 million budget (approx. $138 million in 2016) made available to him. The director no doubt had a ball while making The Aviator, »
