'National Treasure' Director Set to Helm Disney's 'It's a Small World'

23 April 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After finding success at Disney with The National Treasure franchise, even though development on a third film in the franchise has been stagnant, director Jon Turteltaub is staying comfortable at the House of Mouse with a new project. Deadline has word that the man who was also at the helm of Disney's Cool Runnings, The Kid and The Sorcerer's Apprentice will now direct It's a Small World, an adaptation of the staple theme park attraction with an infectious song that is celebrating it's 50th anniversary. Again, this sounds silly, but if Pirates of the Caribbean can turn into a billion dollar franchise, anything can happen. In what seems like an effort to capitalize on the success of The Lego Movie, Disney has landed that film's producer Dan Lin to produce this project, but we hope this won't try to lazily replicate that film. Between this news and last night's revelation »

'It's A Small World' Finds A Director

"It's A Small World, After All! It's A Small World, After All!"

Remember when people initially chuckled at the idea of Disney turning its Pirates of The Caribbean ride into a movie? I'd say that one worked out for them. Then they did it again with their Haunted Mansion attraction. That one? Not so much. It turned a modest profit, but it didn't lead to much else. Well, now Disney is at it again. They're planning a feature film adaptation of their It's A Small World ride. That's not all. They've hired a director, and they intend this to be a franchise.

Jon Turteltaub, he of the National Treasure movies and last year's sleeper hit Last Vegas, has been tapped to helm It's A Small World. Deadline is reporting that he's also producing the film, along with Dan Lin of The Lego Movie. The move makes sense considering Turteltaub »

Juanita Moore obituary

3 January 2014 12:55 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Oscar-nominated actor who brought sensitivity and warmth to her most famous role in Imitation of Life

From its earliest days, Hollywood, which has always lagged behind wider social advances, limited the roles of black actors to stock, wide-eyed cowards, simpletons or servants, often referred to as "uncles" and "mammies". Juanita Moore, who has died aged 99, suffered from this limitation by having to play maids throughout most of her long career. However, Moore could have echoed what Hattie McDaniel, the first African-American actor to win an Academy Award, once said: "Why should I complain about making $700 a week playing a maid? If I didn't, I'd be making $7 a week being one."

Where McDaniel as Mammy, Scarlett O'Hara's lovable, sassy servant in Gone With the Wind (1939) was the apotheosis of the black maid, Moore's Oscar-nominated portrayal of Annie Johnson, housekeeper to the glamorous Broadway star Lora Meredith (Lana Turner) in Douglas Sirk »
