Sam Mendes in Talks to Direct Disney’s Live-Action ‘James and the Giant Peach’

25 August 2016 5:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sam Mendes is in “very early” negotiations with Disney to direct a live-action version of “James And The Giant Peach.”

Nick Hornby is also in preliminary talks to write the screenplay for the project, 20 years after Disney released the animated movie, directed by Henry Selick and based on the Roald Dahl book.

The original book, both fanciful and macabre, was published in 1961 and centered on 4-year-old James Henry Trotter, who lives in England with his loving parents until his parents are killed by a rhinoceros. He’s taken in by his two cruel aunts and leaves several years later thanks to an old man giving him magic crocodile tongues which produce a massive single peach — which contains human-like insects who befriend James.

The 1996 film, a combination of live-action and stop-motion animation, generated $29 million at the domestic box office. Tim Burton and Denise Di Novi produced with Paul Terry starring as »

‘James and the Giant Peach’ gets an Oscar-winning director for its live-action take

25 August 2016 5:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Disney doesn’t look to be pulling the reins in on their live-action remakes anytime soon. (And who can blame them with The Jungle Book sitting pretty in spot no. 3 at the 2016 box office?) Now the House of Mouse is in early development on a live-action James and the Giant Peach. Oscar winner Sam Mendes is in talks to direct, Deadline reported Thursday. No word yet on whether a live-action take on the tale of James and the bugs he befriends would be more directly based on the 1996 Disney stop-motion film or on the source material, Roald Dahl’s 1961 children’s novel. This comes shortly after the release of another Dahl adaptation that Disney placed in the hands of another Oscar-winning director, Steven Spielberg’s The Bfg.  Mendes is better known for his adult-geared fare — like American Beauty, Road to Perdition, and the two most recent 007 films — but he has delved into family-friendly entertainment. »

The Nice Guys (Shane Black)

It’s been over 40 years since Chinatown, and roughly the same amount of time separates the events of that film from those of The Nice Guys, another tale of a private detective in Los Angeles taking on an initially simple case which leads him to a vast, environmentally centered criminal conspiracy. The Nice Guys even carries on Chinatown’s heartbeat of individual helplessness when confronted with the casual body disposal of profit-hungry industrialists. »

Most writing on Christian Desmares and Franck Ekinci‘s April and the Extraordinary World speaks as though they’ve adapted one of revered Frenchman Jacques Tardi‘s graphic novels.

The New World (Terrence Malick)

Terrence Malick is a filmmaker who has always valued photogenic artistry over narrative thrust, content to let his stories and characters wash over the audience like a crashing wave. There are few directors who indulge in such visual splendor, his creative aphorism seemingly being beauty for the sake of beauty. For Lubezki’s first collaboration with the director, The New World, it was also an opportunity for him to shoot (at least partially) on 65mm. »

Fantasia Review: Let Me Make You A Martyr

22 July 2016 7:55 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This year’s 20th anniversary edition of the Fantasia Film Festival has been hitting home runs, left and right, with films like The Alchemist Cookbook, Slash and now Corey Asraf and John Swab’s Let Me Make You A Martyr. A southern noir thriller, as dirty and grimy as it gets, the film really goes for the jugular, offering viewers a one of a kind of film that truly shows how subtlety and the idea of the quiet sky can be just as intense and frightening as a loud scream.

Told in a non-linear fashion, Let Me Make You A Martyr follows Drew Glass (Niko Nicotera), a young man being questioned about situations that we as viewers haven’t seen yet, so as the story goes on and we learn and discover all of the puzzle pieces, we in turn learn about Drew, his quest for vengeance and to escape »

Night & Fog (Alain Resnais)

Ten years after the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps, filmmaker Alain Resnais documented the abandoned grounds of Auschwitz and Majdanek in Night and Fog (Nuit et brouillard), one of the first cinematic reflections on the Holocaust. Juxtaposing the stillness of the abandoned camps’ empty buildings with haunting wartime footage, Resnais investigates humanity’s capacity for violence, and presents the devastating suggestion that such horrors could occur again. – Criterion

Embrace of the Serpent (Ciro Guerra)

With its focus on the effects of exploration by white men on foreign lands, Ciro Guerra’s Oscar-nominated Embrace of the Serpent will inevitably be compared to Werner Herzog’s stories of savage nature, and while Guerra is investigating some of Herzog’s most well trodden themes, the chaos of man exists in the background, while the unspoiled sit front and center here.

Tyler Hoechlin Talks Playing Superman

18 June 2016 10:09 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Having just been cast in the role of Superman in The CW's "Supergirl" series, "Teen Wolf" and "Road to Perdition" actor Tyler Hoechlin has spoken about his take on the Man of Steel and the pressure to compete with Henry Cavill's version from the films.

Mail Online spoke with Hoechlin at the Sydney Film Festival premiere of "Everybody Wants Some" last weekend where he said: "I never try to compare and contrast performances because it's such an iconic character already... Superman is Superman so I'm just going to try to carry on the tradition of that and play that part."

Hoechlin also seemingly confirmed that we'll see both Superman And Clark Kent n the series: "I think the fun is going to be finding where Clark Kent is in this world. I'm just excited to find out Clark's sense of humour." There's no word on how large Superman's role »

Tyler Hoechlin To Play Superman On The CW’s Supergirl

16 June 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s safe to say that Supergirl will make a tremendous impact on The CW’s primetime lineup, which is already heavily populated with superheroes, when the Man of Steel himself joins the action for the first two episodes of the second season. Sure, we may have received some glimpses of Superman’s silhouette or seen his boots at points during the first season, but that’s just not quite the same as seeing one of the most recognizable pop culture icons in all of their glory.

As it turns out, Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf, Road to Perdition) will don the cape and tights, becoming the first man to play Big Blue on the small screen since Tom Welling of Smallville fame. I must admit that he certainly looks the part, so here’s hoping that he can bring a certain gravitas to the role considering that it’s already been established on the show that this iteration of Superman has been on the job for some time.

Apparently Exectutive Producer Andrew Kreisberg has complete faith in him, and had the following to say about the casting:

“Greg [Berlanti] and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman. We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character.”

If Kreisberg has that kind of confidence, I feel as though I can breathe a sigh of relief. Let’s not forget that fans debated if a little known Grant Gustin could embody The Flash, and now many can’t accept anyone but him as the character.

It has also been said the ability to use Superman in the “Arrowverse” is a result of the recent reorganization at Warner Bros. DC’s Trinity – Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman – were previously off limits for television properties to use and now, most fortunate for us, red tape between divisions seems less restrictive – so perhaps this will open the door for more superheroes to come to prime time that we hadn’t thought possible before. I just wouldn’t count on Batman showing up any time soon, as he’s tied up with Gotham.

Tell us, are you happy to see Hoechlin snag the role of Supes? Let us know by commenting below! »

A new incarnation of one of the most iconic superheros of all time is coming to the CW's Supergirl. According to THR, the next actor to don the red cape for the small screen will be 28 year-old Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf, Road To Perdition, Fifty Shades of Grey). Here's what the show's Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg had to say about the casting: "Greg [Berlanti] and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman. We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character." Hoechlin will be the second actor to portray the fully-grown Superman/Clark Kent on The CW, following Tom Welling's 10 season-run on Smallville. Supergirl returns for its sophomore season this Fall. »

Tyler Hoechlin Takes Flight as Superman on ‘Supergirl’

16 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Tyler Hoechlin!

The star of Richard Linklater’s “Everybody Wants Some!” has just been cast as Superman/Clark Kent on next season of The CW’s “Supergirl.”

Warner Bros. TV had previously announced that Superman would appear at the beginning of “Supergirl’s” second season, as the show moves from CBS to The CW. The plot hasn’t been revealed yet, other than Superman will be visiting his Krypton cousin Kara (Melissa Benoist) in National City.

Superman has already made appearances on “Supergirl,” but only as blurry glimpses.

“Greg [Berlanti] and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg.

Hoechlin will next star in “Stratton.” His other credits include the TV series “Teen Wolf” and “7th Heaven,” as well as the films “Road to Perdition,” “Hall Pass” and “Solstice.”

The casting continues the DC Comics tradition of keeping actors playing the film and TV versions of its characters separate, as Henry Cavill currently plays Superman on the big screen. The announcement also puts to rest speculation that Tom Welling, who played young Clark Kent on “Smallville” for The WB (and later, The CW), might be up for the role.
