Space Invaders Film Moves Forward with Producer Akiva Goldsman

20 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Warner Bros. has been trying to develop the classic 1980s video game Space Invaders as a feature film for years. The project is once again being pushed forward, this time with producers Akiva Goldsman, Joby Harold, and Tory Tunnell.

Goldsman is the Academy Award winning writer of A Beautiful Mind, and has also worked on films such as I Am Legend, I Robot, The Da Vinci Code, and most recently Winter's Tale. He's a solid producer, and I think the film is in good hands.

There's no information on what story they will tell, but they could basically make it anything they want. There's no real mythology behind the 1978 game, it just featured several rows of aliens  firing lasers at earth, and one ship toggling back and fourth shooting them back trying to stop them.

Watch a Dynamite New Trailer for the James Brown Biopic 'Get on Up'

19 July 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Anyone who still thinks jocks and artists don't mix has yet to be acquainted with Mr. Chadwick Boseman. After playing Jackie Robinson in 2013's 42 and a fictional football star in this year's Draft Day, the young actor seems poised to nail the role of James Brown in Get on Up, the forthcoming biopic that counts Mick Jagger as a producer.

The new trailer for Get on Up, directed by The Help's Tate Taylor, is a major tease. It's got Brown falling in »

Time to insert another coin; the Space Invaders movie has come back to Earth

18 July 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

It was almost three years ago when we told you a feature film based on the classic arcade game Space Invaders was on the way. I guess the powers that be were waiting for some talented individuals to jump on board, and so here we are. Warner Bros. has acquired the films rights and brought on Akiva Goldsman (who wrote A Beautiful Mind and directed A Winter's Tale), Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell to produce the adaptation. The classic '80s arcade game was all about pew-pew-pew! »

Ron Howard directing sanctioned Beatles documentary

16 July 2014 2:09 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Deadline reported Wednesday that Ron Howard, director of Rush, A Beautiful Mind and The DaVinci Code, will helm a documentary on the early years of The Beatles.

The film will focus on the years of 1960 to 1966, taking viewers through their formative days playing skiffle and at The Cavern Club in Liverpool all the way until their final tour and their infamous performance at Shea Stadium.

But separating this from many other rock docs that have touched on The Beatles’ massive influence, be it Martin Scorsese’s HBO documentary on the life of George Harrison or the much less sanctioned story Good ‘Ol Freda about the work of Beatles secretary Freda Kelly, is that Howard’s film will have the full support of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Olivia Harrison, Yoko Ono, and even The Beatles label Apple Corps Ltd.

Although there is no shortage of footage to be found on The Beatles, »

Ron Howard Will Direct A Beatles Documentary Based On Their Early Touring Years

16 July 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Ron Howard isn’t exactly known for his documentary work. He’s helmed all of one notable doc so far – 2013’s Jay-z doc “Made in America” (which was just recently released) but perhaps that’s enough.

Brian Grazer Is Hustling to Keep Imagine Entertainment Relevant in Ever-Changing Hollywood

16 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s odd to see Brian Grazer chillin’.

But there he is — the frenetic mega-producer — lounging in his sprawling backyard in Santa Monica, Calif., overlooking the Riviera Country Club, munching on a breakfast of turkey bacon and eggs over easy, drinking fresh-pressed carrot juice with a touch of ginger.

Not surprisingly the zen moment quickly dissolves.

“Oh shit, can I text Mick Jagger back?” Grazer asks a reporter, suddenly bolting upright, his gold-and-white leather encased iPhone vibrating. The two are co-producing “Get On Up,” the James Brown biopic that debuts Aug. 1. Jagger’s on tour in Europe, and they’ve missed a chance to talk. “He’s so polite and British,” Grazer confides. “You have to be like, ‘How are you this morning?’ and take a beat, and then get on with it.”

Grazer prides himself on deciphering what makes a person tick. He’s spent the past three decades peppering industry titans, »

The Clan of the Cave Bear Pilot Ordered at Lifetime

9 July 2014 4:51 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

With ABC’s failed 2007 Cavemen sitcom now just a hard-to-fathom memory, Lifetime is taking a big swing at the prehistoric era — with classier source materian than a Geico ad — by giving a pilot order to The Clan of the Cave Bear, based on Jean M. Auel’s series of best-selling novels.

The one-hour drama project, which is being eyed for a possible 2015 launch, is executive produced by Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind) and Oscar and Emmy winner Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind, 24), along with Allison Shearmur (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Linda Woolverton (Maleficent), who is writing the pilot, »

Akiva Goldsman Set to Direct Horror Film Stephanie

26 June 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Screenwriter and director Akiva Goldsman is about to take on a new film project called Stephanie. This will be a horror movie that tells the story of a little girl with "unworldly abilities who was abandoned before a man and a woman show up claiming to be her parents, thereby interrupting her mysterious world."

The last film that Goldsman directed was Winter's Tale, which is a film I haven't seen. It didn't really look that good to me to be honest. But Goldsman is a talented, Academy Award winning screenwriter who has written some pretty incredible scripts in his career. Some of those include A Beautiful Mind; Cinderella Man; I, Robot; The Da Vinci Code; and for some reason he also wrote Batman Forever and Batman & Robin. Can't win 'em all, I guess.

Goldsman isn't new to the world of horror as he was the executive producer on Paranormal Activity 2, »

First Look: Ron Howard's Adaptation Of Stephen King's The Dark Tower (Cancelled)

25 June 2014 4:34 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Over the years there have been several attempts to adapt Stephen King's epic Dark Tower series for the big and small screen. The closest attempt, and the most ambitious attempt, was Ron Howard's adaptation, with Universal set to produce. Howard planned to make three movies, but there also be a television mini-series in between each film. The financial risk became too much for Universal to bare, so they passed. Howard then took it to Warner Bros. but they too passed due to financial concerns. Last year, Howard said he is still hoping to move forward with the project but would keep mum until there was more concrete news to report. The screenplay was written by Akiva Goldsman ("A Beautiful Mind") and it would've been produced by Brian Grazer, Goldsman and Stephen King. Below, are the first pieces of concept art to surface. These are designs of various sets: Devar Toi, »

Academy Award Winner Tapped to Direct Blumhouse Horror Film Stephanie

25 June 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Back in 2002 Akiva Goldsman (Batman Forever, I Am Legend) won an Academy Award for penning A Beautiful Mind, and he's gone on to executive produce the first three Paranormal Activity sequels. Next up, he plops down in the director's chair for a horror flick called Stephanie.

Per Deadline, Goldsman has been tapped to direct the Blumhouse-produced tale of supernatural thrills and chills, a story about a little girl with unworldly abilities who was abandoned before a man and woman show up claiming to be her parents, thereby interrupting her mysterious world.

A fall start is being eyed for the film, also produced by Unbroken and The Gotham Group. Jason Blum has a deal with Universal so the pic may go through there.

The story was written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, whose script for this film a couple of years ago was noted as one of the best in The Blood List, »

Akiva Goldsman Will Direct 'Stephanie' for Blumhouse

25 June 2014 11:09 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Filmmaker Akiva Goldsman has signed on to direct the horror-thriller Stephanie for producer Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions company.

The story centers on a young abandoned girl who develops superhuman abilities, whose life is turned upside down when a man and woman claiming to be her parents emerge, which causes havoc on her new gifts. The script was written by Luke Piotrowsky and Ben Collins, which landed on the Blood List back in 2012. The Blood List is the horror-equivalent of The Black list, recognizing the best unproduced horror screenplays. The writers also recently completed a script for Luc Besson entitled Underground, based on Luc Besson's original idea.

Jason Blum and Blumhouse are producing alongside Matthew Kaplan, Adrienne Biddle and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, with Bryan Bertino, Eric Robinson and Nate Matteson serving as executive producers. While the project doesn't have a studio home at this time, Jason Blum has a first-look deal with Universal, »

Akiva Goldsman Will Direct Blumhouse Horror Pic Stephanie

25 June 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though his feature directorial debut, Winter’s Tale, was an unqualified disaster on absolutely every level, Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman (for his script for A Beautiful Mind, which also won Best Picture) isn’t giving up the director’s chair just yet. This week, he signed on to helm a horror flick called Stephanie, for Blumhouse, Unbroken and The Gotham Group.

The film will tell the story of a “little girl with unworldly abilities who was abandoned before a man and a woman show up claiming to be her parents, thereby interrupting her mysterious world.”

Though that description doesn’t really give much insight into what Stephanie is actually about, we have reason to be hopeful. Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski’s script was noted as one of the best in The Blood List (like the Black List of most liked but un-produced screenplays, only for horror) a few years back. »

Video: A young Jennifer Connelly auditions for 'Labyrinth'

23 June 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Today, Jennifer Connelly is a Hollywood A-lister: She won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2001 for A Beautiful Mind and has starred in a number of other critically acclaimed films, including Requiem for a Dream and Blood Diamond.

Back in the 1980s, however, well before achieving said A-list status, Connelly was a little-known actress. One major film that put he on the map: Jim Henson’s 1986 film Labyrinth, also famously starring David Bowie.

The film tells the story of Sarah (Connelly), a 15-year-old who wishes her baby half-brother, Toby (Toby Froud), away to Jareth the Goblin King (Bowie). Sarah, who »

Telefilm Canada Supports New Feature Films

20 June 2014 9:55 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Telefilm Canada has confirmed its financial support of nearly $13 million of Canadian tax payers' money towards the production of nine English-language feature films through the 'Canada Feature Film Fund', although there doesn't seem to be anything culturally 'Canadian' about most of their selections, other than the crews that will be working on them.

Among the films receiving money include a psycho horror with a demonic 'Santa Claus', a bio pic about a former Queen of Sweden, the 'relationship' between 'James Dean' and a photographer, a thriller involving a Satanic child abuse sex ring, and an inflatable Sex Doll drug smuggling story:

The films are "After the Ball" (Sean Garrity), "A Christmas Horror Story" (Steven Hoban, Grant Harvey, Brett Sullivan), "Aloft" (Claudia Llosa), "A Worthy Companion" (Jason Sanchez, Carlos Sanchez), "Life" (Anton Corbijn), "Regression" (Alejandro Amenabar), "Rest Home" (Michael Rowe), "The Girl King" (Mika Kaurismäki) and "Zoom" (Pedro Morelli »
