9 Iconic Martin Scorsese Characters

17 November 2015 8:26 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: First Look: Liam Neeson In Martin Scorsese's 'Silence' William "Bill the Butcher" Cutting (Daniel Day Lewis), "Gangs of New York" Using 19th century New York City gang leader William Poole as a launching pad, Scorsese brings to the screen his most magnetic and monstrous villain with Bill "the Butcher" Cutting. Played with ruthless calculation and conniving intensity by Daniel Day Lewis, Cutting is a towering screen presence — you simply can't take your eyes off him. Based on Herbert Asbury's 1927 non-fiction book, "Gangs of New York" centers on Leonardo DiCaprio's Amsterdam Vallon, a young Irish immigrant who loses his father to Cutting's reign of terror and plots his revenge against him two decades later. Bringing the adult Vallon unknowingly under his wing, Cutting proves dangerous and charismatic all at once. Lewis, inhabiting the role with a blazing fire in his eyes that is impossible to put out, »

First Look At A Bearded Liam Neeson In Martin Scorsese’s Religious Drama Silence

16 November 2015 8:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Production has now wrapped on the set of Martin Scorsese’s passion project Silence, the auteur’s high-profile adaptation of the eponymous novel by Shûsaku Endô, and after giving us an image of Andrew Garfield’s Jesuit priest, Collider has unveiled the first official still of Liam Neeson as a bearded and gaunt mentor.

Set in 17th century Nagasaki, Japan, Scorsese’s awards-friendly tale orbits around Garfield’s pilgrimage to find his wayward mentor, a gruelling experience he will share with Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ Adam Driver. Disillusioned and at his wits’ end, Neeson’s deeply religious lead is hoping to spread the salvation of Christianity, though his character finds himself conflicted with the role that god plays in his life, questioning his once-unyielding faith in the process.

Indeed, Neeson isn’t the only Gangs Of New York talent to be involved in Silence, either, given that Jay Cocks »

Camerimage Honors Murch, Powell, Stewart, Spotnitz, Menges

15 November 2015 11:05 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Camerimage, the International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography, celebrates its 23rd edition with seven special awards for artists and technicians whom they identify as possessing a “unique visual sensitivity.” From Hollywood comes renowned editor and sound designer Walter Murch, whose diverse and award-winning credits include “The Conversation,” “Apocalypse Now” and “The English Patient,” as well as this year’s summer sci-fi fantasy “Tomorrowland.”

The U.K. is represented by costumer designer Sandy Powell and production designer Eve Stewart. Powell is no stranger to awards — her outfits for films such as “Shakespeare in Love,” “Gangs of New York,” “The Aviator” and “The Young Victoria” have brought regular invitations to the Oscar ceremony in the last 20 years. Similarly, Stewart’s period work with Mike Leigh, plus her collaborations with Tom Hooper for Oscar favorites “The King’s Speech” and “Les Misérables,” has brought multiple nominations as well as a BAFTA win for the latter. »

First Look: Liam Neeson In Martin Scorsese's 'Silence'

15 November 2015 7:16 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It seems like a rare bird these days, but Liam Neeson is making a movie that doesn't find him employing a special set of skills to immobilize faceless baddies. The actor has reteamed with his "Gangs Of New York" director, Martin Scorsese, for the filmmaker's long brewing passion project, "Silence," and the title doesn't just refer to the Shûsaku Endô book being adapted for the big screen. Read More: First Official Image Of Andrew Garfield In Martin Scorsese's 'Silence' “[Scorsese] gives 200%. All he requires is that you give 100%. He’s intimidating,” Neeson explained at the Los Cabos Film Festival (via Variety), adding that he lost twenty pounds for his role. “He requires absolute silence on the set — if he hears one tiny sound, it shatters it for him.” Co-starring Andrew GarfieldTadanobu Asano, and Adam Driver, the film follows two 17th-century Jesuit priests who face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan. »

Jurassic World (Colin Trevorrow)

As all good sequels must learn, the key to success is delivering on the promise set forth by the original while also providing something fresh and improved. Just ask James Cameron, a master at the task, who injected action-packed life into both Aliens and Terminator 2: Judgment Day without negating or watering down the mythology still relevant beneath those newfound popcorn blockbuster sensibilities. Neither The Lost World nor Jurassic Park III did it. They »

Liam Neeson to star in new thriller The Commuter

22 September 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Liam Neeson is set to star in The Commuter, a new thriller from StudioCanal.

Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman, who worked with Neeson on both Unknown and Non-Stop, are again set to produce the film, which will see Neeson play “a businessman on his daily commute home, who unwittingly gets caught up in a criminal conspiracy. It threatens not only his life but the lives of those around him.”

Shooting on the film is set to begin next Spring, but no release date has been set.

Amongst Neeson’s newest projects is his latest collaboration with director Martin Scorsese (Gangs of New York) on Silence, the Seventeenth century-set drama which co-stars Andrew Garfield (99 Homes) and Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and is set for release in 2016.

Liam Neeson To Topline Ruben Fleischer’s Action-Comedy The Revenger

18 September 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Liam Neeson’s particular set of skills have been exploited ad nauseam across the Taken trilogy – and will soon inspire a spinoff TV series – though Deadline is bringing word that the Northern Irish acting veteran is enlisting for Ruben Fleischer’s action-comedy, The Revenger. Yes, after laying siege to most of mainland Europe, Neeson is ready for a new spin on the action genre.

Working from a script served up by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant – best known for their work on Night at the Museum –  Fleischer’s film will set up shop at Universal. Granted, there’s little-to-no information to go on for director’s latest venture behind the camera, but considering the irreverent, self-referential tone of Zombieland coupled with the unbridled silliness of the Museum franchise, we’re hoping that Neeson’s take on what we assume will be title character is more comedy than out-and-out action. »

Legendary Team DiCaprio & Scorsese to Join Again for Devil In The White City

13 August 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

When it was announced in 2010 that Leonardo DiCaprio had purchased the rights to The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America, the book based on America’s first serial killer Dr. Henry Howard Holmes, moviegoers and critics alike cheered at the prospect of DiCaprio acting in another horror/thriller. With Shutter Island and Inception under his belt that same year, he was the perfect candidate to take on such a legendary topic and such a critically-acclaimed book.

When Deadline got the exclusive that DiCaprio would undertake the film with legendary director Martin Scorsese at the helm, it made fans go wild. Who better than these two to take on a story about a man who literally built a murder hotel so he could torture and sell the bodies of his suspected 200 victims during the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago?

The Perils of Passion Projects

11 August 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Christopher Nolan recently announced a new project entitled Quay, a documentary short about two British stop-motion animators. Set to premiere next week, it’s a far cry from Nolan’s blockbusters in both scope and subject matter. Yet it’s clearly a personal project, with Nolan using his clout and money to promote two obscure filmmakers.

Every artist – director, star, screenwriter – has some project that they want to make above all. A deeply personal, original idea; an autobiographical story; a favored story or hero they wish to celebrate. If a filmmaker is successful or lucky enough, they get a chance to produce them. Yet sometimes the reaction isn’t what they expect.

Francis Ford Coppola started his career directing exploitation films for Roger Corman, notably the horror film Dementia 13 (1963). Then he toiled as screenwriter and occasional director, helming the musical Finian’s Rainbow (1968) and the more personal The Rain People »

Leonardo DiCaprio reunites with Martin Scorsese to play a serial killer in The Devil in the White City

11 August 2015 3:13 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Leonardo DiCaprio is teaming up with director Martin Scorsese once again for long-awaited project The Devil in the White City.

The 40-year-old actor - who has been linked with the movie since 2010 - will take on the role of Dr Hh Holmes, a serial killer who murdered hundreds of victims at his infamous World's Fair Hotel in Chicago.

Holmes used the 1893 Chicago World's Fair to slaughter his victims in the hotel - nicknamed his 'Murder Castle' - a structure containing a gas chamber, dissection table and a crematorium.

The news was confirmed after Paramount acquired the rights to Erik Larson's true crime book The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic and Madness At The Fair That Changed America.

Paramount outbid Universal and Fox to secure the rights to Larson's book in a competitive auction.

Screenwriter Billy Ray will also work on the project.

Sixth time's the charm for Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese.

The actor and director have teamed up to make five acclaimed movies, and they're reuniting once again for "Devil in the White City."

Deadline reports that Paramount has optioned the rights to Erik Larson's nonfiction book about a serial killer in Chicago in the late 19th century. DiCaprio will play Hh Holmes, who murdered between 27 and 200 people, mostly single young women.

The movie is set against the backdrop of the 1893 World's Fair, and also tells the story of fair architect Daniel H. Burnham. Holmes, who works with Burnham, builds the World's Fair Hotel and uses it as a means of luring in his victims. It was a nightmarish place that had a gas chamber, crematorium, and dissecting table.

Together, DiCaprio and Scorsese have previously made "Gangs of New York," "The Aviator," "The Departed," "Shutter Island," and "The Wolf of Wall Street. »
