Critics Awards All Over the Map

17 December 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Three groups of critics . two on the East Coast, one on the West . recently chimed in with their picks for the year's best, and they were pretty much all over the map. Film critics in Los Angeles and Boston announced their choices over the weekend, with About Schmidt charming L.A. and the critics of Beantown making a surprise choice with Roman Polanski's The Pianist. The New York Film Critics Circle added to the obfuscation of any Oscar favorites by going with art house fave Far From Heaven. In fact, the New Yorkers bestowed five awards on Todd Haynes' ode to Douglas Sirk: Picture, Supporting Actor (Dennis Quaid), Supporting Actress (Patricia Clarkson), Director, and Cinematography. In a surprise upset, Diane Lane was chosen best actress over Heaven's Julianne Moore for her performance in Adrian Lyne's Unfaithful; Daniel Day-Lewis walked away with the lead actor award for Gangs of New York. In Los Angeles, About Schmidt's Jack Nicholson tied with Day-Lewis for the lead actor award, while Julianne Moore picked up the Best Actress award for both Far From Heaven and The Hours. Other L.A. awards included Chris Cooper (supporting actor for Adaptation), Edie Falco (supporting actress for Sunshine State) and Pedro Almodovar (director for Talk To Her). Boston critics heaped awards on The Pianist's Adrien Brody (lead actor) and Roman Polanski (director), and made other surprise choices for lead actress (Maggie Gyllenhaal for Secretary), supporting actor (Alan Arkin for 13 Conversations About One Thing) and supporting actress (Toni Collette, named for both About a Boy and The Hours). All the critics did agree on one thing, though: Alfonso Cuaron's Y Tu Mama Tambien was named best foreign film by all three groups. --Prepared by IMDb staff »

Film center among ambitious IFC plans

16 December 2002 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- On the heels of its success with the indie feature hits My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Y Tu Mama Tambien, the Independent Film Channel is developing ambitious plans to expand its operations into theatrical exhibition and video-on-demand services. The Cablevision Systems-owned company will formally announce later this week its intent to launch a film center in downtown Manhattan as a showcase for independent films as well as an unprecedented day-and-date home video/VOD release strategy for its own films. The big plans at IFC Cos. -- whose operations include film production and distribution and the cable channel -- are a sign that Cablevision is not looking to sell the company, a move that had been rumored as a possibility in the wake of Cablevision's recent $1.25 billion sale of its Bravo channel to NBC and the continuing talk of a sale of Cablevision's American Movie Classics channel. »

Y Luna tambien: Actor steps into 'Havana Nights'

14 October 2002 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Y Tu Mama Tambien star Diego Luna is ready to step in where Patrick Swayze left off as the male lead in Havana Nights, the much-talked-about second installment of the Dirty Dancing franchise for Artisan Entertainment, Miramax Films and producer Lawrence Bender. With Luna's deal set and Guy Ferland (Bang Bang You're Dead) at the helm, the only major piece missing is Luna's dancing partner, who has yet to be cast. Sources said producers hope to zero in on a female lead in the coming weeks, with shooting scheduled to start early next year and a release date of Nov. 21, 2003, already marked on the calendar. Inspired by the 1987 original but set in 1959 Cuba, Havana Nights follows the story of a 17-year-old girl who moves with her family to revolution-era Cuba. While there, she defies her family's wishes when she falls for a young Cuban dancer (Luna) who helps her discover herself and the world beyond her sheltered existence. »

6 September 2002 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

MEXICO CITY -- In just 20 days, El Crimen del Padre Amaro (The Crime of Father Amaro), a film that has sparked considerable controversy in this predominantly Catholic nation, has broken the all-time boxoffice record among Mexican productions. The film's distributor, Columbia Pictures Mexico, said in a statement Thursday, that the film has grossed 118.5 million pesos (about $12 million), surpassing the 1999 release of Sexo, Pudor y Lagrimas, which ran 26 weeks and raked in boxoffice receipts totaling 117 million pesos. With the latest announcement, Padre Amaro, directed by Carlos Carrera, has also eclipsed such recent hits as Y Tu Mama Tambien (And Your Mother Too), which took in 102 million pesos ($10.1 million) in national ticket sales and Amores Perros (Love's a Bitch), which grossed 95 million pesos ($9.5 million) nationwide. The Samuel Goldwyn Co. has North American rights to the film. »

Maestro fires up 'Motorcycle' with Salles at controls

3 September 2002 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Mia Maestro has been cast as the female lead in director Walter Salles' Spanish-language The Motorcycle Diaries, which U.K.-based FilmFour and Germany's Senator Films are financing. Shooting begins in Argentina, Chile and Peru late this month, with Southfork Pictures, a division of Robert Redford's Wildwood Enterprises, producing. "Motorcycle" recounts famed revolutionary Che Guevara's journey as a young 23-year-old medical student traversing South America in the 1950s with his friend Alberto Granado. Gael Garcia Bernal (Y Tu Mama Tambien) will portray Guevara, with Maestro playing his love interest, Chichina. The project is based on the journals kept by Guevara and Granado when they were on the road. Jose Rivera penned the screenplay. Maestro, repped by the Gersh Agency and the Firm, next stars in Miramax Films' "Frida," playing Frida Kahlo's sister Christina. Her credits include "Tango," "Timecode" and "Hotel." »

Shyamalan Explains Indy Snub

27 July 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Moviemaker M. Night Shyamalan has revealed why he turned down the chance to write the new Indiana Jones movie. The Sixth Sense helmer confesses he rejected the opportunity to make Indiana Jones 4 - because he didn't think it was the project for him. Frank Marshall, who produced the Indiana Jones trilogy, as well as The Sixth Sense and Shyamalan's new film Signs, first approached the filmmaker about writing Indiana Jones IV. But M. Night explains, "I'm a pretty independent person and I sensed Indiana Jones would be a very collaborative project. It would be so difficult coordinating everything with Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford every step of the way." The director also reveals he rejected the offer of directing the third Harry Potter movie - a gig that was eventually handed to Alfonso Cuaron, of Y Tu Mama Tambien fame. But Shyamalan says his busy workload stood in the way of the wizard flicks. He adds, "I had begun working on my idea for Signs and it would have been too long of a commitment to direct the Harry Potter movies." »
