Joseph Bologna, Actor and Playwright Known for ‘My Favorite Year,’ Dies at 82

13 August 2017 6:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Joseph Bologna, an actor, writer, and director known for his role in 1982’s “My Favorite Year” and for his long collaboration on stage and screen with wife Renée Taylor, has died after a three-year battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 82.

Bologna died Sunday morning at City of Hope in Duarte, Calif. Just last month, Bologna attended a 35th anniversary screening of “My Favorite Year” in Los Angeles. Bologna played the explosive TV star King Kaiser in the backstage comedy inspired by Mel Brooks’ experiences as a young TV writer on Sid Caesar’s legendary “Your Show of Shows.”

Taylor said Bologna had “a beautiful life and a beautiful death.” Bologna died just two days after the couple celebrated their 52nd wedding anniversary.

Great Films Unfairly Forgotten in Time

6 August 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on forgotten films…

Time is a cruel mistress. It’s the one constant and something no one can alter (except Marty McFly and Doc Brown). Looks go, memories fade and in cinematic terms a film can be forgotten over time. Now sometimes it’s probably a good thing. Take for example the turn of the century and the release of Battlefield Earth. One of the undisputed turkeys of modern cinema. An unmitigated disaster on every level. However it’s not one that always springs directly to mind nowadays when people thing of cinematic disasters. In part there’s been even worse since, and on even more bloated budgets. In that respect, time has been a little kind.

However there are a lot of films which were good, great, maybe on occasion cinematically important which have become hazy memories over time. Perhaps they never quite got the recognition or »

The Best Movie Fight Scenes — IndieWire Critics Survey

31 July 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of the bone-crunching “Atomic Blonde,” what is the greatest movie fight scene?

Read More‘Atomic Blonde’: How They Turned One Amazing Action Scene Into a Seven-Minute Long Take Erin Oliver Whitney (@cinemabite), ScreenCrush

I’ve got a soft spot for wuxia so the “best fight scene” immediately evokes Zhang Yimou in my mind. I could list every fight in “Hero,” sequences so spellbindingly beautiful and graceful you forget you’re watching violence. The bamboo forest battle from “House of Flying Daggers” is another all-timer, a mesmerizing fight that almost entirely takes place in the air. And the bone-crunching, table-smashing »

'Game of Thrones' Recap: Queen Slates

30 July 2017 8:35 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A Game of Thrones, the first book in author George R. R. Martin's epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, was published on August 6, 1996. So if longtime fans' hopes that Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow would one day meet were a person, they'd be about a week away from the legal drinking age. "The Queen's Justice" – the Game of Thrones episode that served up this long-awaited meeting before Martin himself could get to it – displayed a surprising lack of romantic or interpersonal fireworks between the two monarchs. »

The Lost Projects: 15 Movies Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, and More Auteurs Never Made

28 July 2017 7:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Just because you’re a well-established director with award-winning hits and/or commercial successes doesn’t mean you can make any movie you want. Just ask Martin Scorsese, Spike Lee, Sofia Coppola, Darren Aronofsky, and more. All these auteurs have had passion projects over the years they’ve had to kill or put on indefinite hiatus for a variety of reasons, which is a shame given how incredible all of them sound on paper.

Christopher Nolan taking on Howard Hughes. Spike Lee making a boxing epic around Joe Louis. Kathryn Bigelow resurrecting Joan of Arc for a female warrior saga unlike any the big screen had ever really seen in the 1990s. We’d buy a ticket for all them years in advance if we knew they were definitely happening.

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Star Troian Bellisario on How Writing, Producing ‘Feed’ Helped Her Overcome an Eating Disorder

17 July 2017 1:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Troian Bellisario is best known for starring on “Pretty Little Liars” for seven years, but little do her legions of fans know, she was hard at work on another project before “Pll” even began.

Feed” — a film written, produced, and starring Bellisario — is inspired by the multi-hyphenate’s own experiences with an eating disorder. The movie, in which she stars opposite “Harry Potter” alum Tom Felton, debuts July 18 on VOD and all digital platforms.

“It had been living in my head for about eight years and had gone through so many different iterations,” Bellisario, 31, tells Variety of the writing process for “Feed” that began when she was 23 years old, roughly four years after her hospitalization for anorexia.

“I had enough distance to begin to write about this experience, and not write about it like a diary entry, but to create a world and characters that are different than my own experience, and »

‘Garden State’ with Wall-to-Wall Dave Matthews Band Is Pretty Hilarious — Watch

15 July 2017 10:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Among its many other questionable merits — introducing the most manic of all manic pixie dream girls, forcing us to contemplate the concept of Zach-Braff-as-auteur — “Garden State” is best remembered for its indie-heavy soundtrack. Braff won a Grammy for his feature-length playlist, which included the likes of Coldplay, Fro Frou and The Shins. Courtesy of actor/filmmaker Kentucker Audley, we now have an alternate version of “Garden State” to imagine: one in which Dave Matthews Band accounts for the entire soundtrack.

It began, like most great ideas, as a tweet. “Imagine how much better Garden State would have been with a 100% Dave Matthews Band soundtrack,” wrote Audley, and he didn’t stop there. Rather, he took the famous scene in which Natalie Portman’s character has Braff’s listen to her headphones, »

Quentin Tarantino Does Manson? That’s News That Should Thrill Cinema Lovers

15 July 2017 9:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It happens often enough. A great filmmaker announces his next project and you feel a frisson of electricity, a little charge of “Oh, man, that sounds amazing.” I felt it when I heard that Damien Chazelle would follow “La La Land” with an epic drama about Neil Armstrong and the Apollo missions (call it “The Right Stuff Shoots the Moon”). Or when it was revealed, earlier this week, that Barry Jenkins, coming off “Moonlight,” would realize his long-gestating dream of adapting James Baldwin’s 1974 Harlem-set novel “If Beale Street Could Talk.” But it isn’t often — it’s almost never — that the mere announcement of a director’s upcoming film carries a jolt of meaning.

On Wednesday, it was revealed that Quentin Tarantino’s next movie would be a dramatization of the events surrounding the Manson family murders, in the summer of 1969. To me, that sounds like the first Tarantino film in a long while that has »

Quentin Tarantino Basing Parts of Manson Murders Script on Scrapped ‘Kill Bill 3’ — Report

Take this with a giant heap of salt, but a reddit user claiming to have inside information on Quentin Tarantino’s as-yet untitled movie about Charles Manson has shared his or her findings online. “I’m normally the last one to say ‘I have a friend who knows somebody in the business etc’ but for once I might have something so I thought I’d share,” begins the post, which then offers details about the cast (including Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence) and plot.

Fantasia Review: ‘The Villainess’ is a Visceral, Convoluted Quest for Vengeance

15 July 2017 5:26 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Writer/director Byung-gil Jung sure knows how to open an action flick. Think Oldboy‘s hallway scene from the first-person perspective of Hardcore Henry spilling over through a non-descript doorway into a wide-open setting for a one-on-twenty bloodbath a la Kill Bill‘s House of Blue Leaves sequence. Only when the orchestrator of this carnage is picked up and shoved headfirst into a mirror does the camera stumble backwards to show Sook-hee’s (Ok-bin Kim) bloodied face and grimace for more. It’s the type of over-the-top, out-of-control set piece most films work towards as a finale nobody will ever forget and we receive it as soon as the lights go down. A breathtaking jump through a window augmented by police sirens in the distance later and this party has only just begun.

If it wasn’t one-take, it was shot to look like it. You become so wrapped up »

Why Quentin Tarantino’s Manson Murders Project Would Be a Radical Change of Pace

12 July 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s safe to say that Quentin Tarantino is not happy about Tuesday’s breaking news that his next almost-finished untitled script is based on the true history of the Charles Manson murders. That’s because the writer-director, who is one of Hollywood’s great true auteurs with a unique voice that is inimitable, likes to write his screenplays in private.

Tarantino is an artist, backed by patrons Bob and Harvey Weinstein, who has routinely turned down big-studio directing gigs in order to pursue his own muse. And he can be sensitive to the slings and arrows of public opinion. That’s because he wants to leave a meaningful cinematic legacy of just 10 films. So while he could always change his mind (as Steven Soderbergh did) about his career path, Tarantino does not take lightly his choice of what those last two films will be. (The last one might be “Kill Bill: Vol. 3, »

‘Luke Cage’: Why Lucy Liu Directing an Episode Is a Really Smart Move for the Marvel Action Series

12 July 2017 12:08 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Netflix announced Tuesday that Lucy Liu would direct the first episode of “Marvel’s Luke Cage” when the series returned for its second season, and the news was met with a bit of head-scratching and ambivalence. Sure, Liu has had a successful TV and film career, but is still making a name for herself behind the camera.

Upon further examination though, this is a really savvy move on Marvel’s part. Here’s a breakdown of why Liu joining the Netflix series is great news:

Tarantino Directing Manson Family Movie, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence in Talks

11 July 2017 6:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A year and a half after The Hateful Eight hit theaters, director Quentin Tarantino is finally getting ready to make his follow-up, which is reportedly a new take on the Charles Manson family murders that rocked Los Angeles in the late 1960s. The director has reportedly reached out to Brad Pitt, who he worked with on 2009's Inglourious Basterds, and Jennifer Lawrence, to star in this currently-untitled project. The Weinstein Company's Harvey and Bob Weinstein will be involved as executive producers and co-financiers, with the project currently being shopped to studios to co-finance and co-distribute the film, much like how The Weinstein Company and Universal jointly distributed Inglourious Basterds.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today, with sources claiming that Quentin Tarantino is currently putting the finishing touches on his screenplay. The full package could be ready to shop to studios by the Labor Day holiday, with the current plan »

Quentin Tarantino's next film to focus on Manson murders

11 July 2017 6:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tony Sokol Simon Brew Jul 12, 2017

The Manson murders are set to be the subject of Quentin Tarantino's latest project.

It looks as if Quentin Tarantino has worked out which film he's looking to direct next. The maker of Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill will focus his cameras on the Manson family murders of August 8th 1969 for his next project, having penned the screenplay for the new movie (with finishing touches now being applied)

There is no word yet on whether the film will recreate the historic events or use them as the backdrop to another story. The plan, though, is to shoot the film in 2018. An A-list cast is being sought for the movie, and the first names to be linked with the film are Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence. Nobody has signed on the dotted line for this one yet, though.

As for the story? Manson, »

Quentin Tarantino’s Next Film Will Tackle The Manson Murders

11 July 2017 5:30 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It’s been about a year and a half since we’ve heard anything from Tarantino. Back in December of 2015 was the release of Hateful Eight, his violent western that made the rounds in 70mm. The film itself did okay for itself, taking in $155 million worldwide off its modest $44 million budget, but since that time, there’s been almost no updates as to what Tarantino would be working on next. Would it be another western, as Tarantino has teased before, or could it be the oft-rumored and oft-debunked Kill Bill Vol. 3? 

It sounds like you can check off “none of the above,” as THR is now reporting that Tarantino’s next movie will be a take on the Manson Murders. According to the outlet, Tarantino is putting the final touches on the screenplay for the movie. Specific details are vague, but one of its centers is said to revolve around Sharon Tate. »
