Telluride: Weinstein Company Jumps Back Into Oscar Game With Strong ‘Imitation Game’ Screening

1 hour ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

On a day chock full of World Premieres here in Telluride , The Weinstein Company which has used this festival for North American launches of The King’s Speech  and The Artist  and saw both go on to win Best Picture Oscars,  just might be on to another major Best Picture contender after its first public screening of the Alan Turing biopic, The Imitation Game. Of course it is easy this time of year to go into  just about every film that hits the Fall Festival circuit as a potential awards player  after a large drought of Oscar- quality films for the first eight months of the year, but this one just has Academy Award nominations written all over it.  Not just in the Best Picture race where a slot seems likely, but also directing for Norwegian helmer Morten Tyldum (Headhunters), debuting screenwriter Graham Moore, and certainly the stunning lead actor »

‘Imitation Game’ Demands Oscar’s Attention (Analysis)

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Imitation Game” is clearly an awards contender: Complex, impeccably executed and unique. The film’s offbeat approach to an oddball character will be its greatest strength — and its challenge.

A historical drama about WWII cryptographer Alan Turing, “The Imitation Game” is a kudos candidate in multiple categories, including the superb performances of Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley (lead or supporting? She could go either way). Artisan contributions seem like shoo-in contenders. And the film, direction and screenplay are clearly in the Fyc category.

The big challenge to both mainstream audiences and awards voters: selling it. Based on Andrew Hodges’ biography on Turing, the British mathematician who cracked the Nazi’s code, “Imitation Game” demands that the audience work to keep up. When awards voters have a stack of DVDs and invitations to screenings, they’ll need a lot of buzz to lure them to a film about a WWII-era »

The Ring 3 Picks Peculiar, Oscar-Winning Screenwriter

25 August 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Earlier this summer we told you Paramount Pictures was getting serious about The Ring 3, having selected a director for the long-awaited horror sequel. But now this possible-completion to the chilling trilogy just got a bit more interesting with the announcement of a new screenwriter. For better or worse. You tell us. In July, Paramount revealed Spanish helmer F. Javier Gutierrez had been chosen to direct The Ring 3, but it was unclear if the studio had a script in place. Deadline reports Paramount has entered into negotiations with Academy Award-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman. Should he sign on, the scribe behind the critically heralded biopic A Beautiful Mind and the unheralded 1997 franchise killer Batman & Robin, would be the third screenwriter to touch The Ring 3. Inspiration for the threequel was found in Koji Suzuki's novels. From there, Paramount had picked David Loucka, writer of the equally abysmal The House »

What’s Scarier Than ‘The Ring?’ How About a 3D Sequel Written by Akiva Goldsman

22 August 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Back in 2002, an unsuspecting horror movie ruined the lives of pretty much anyone who mistakenly thought they were just in for a fun time with friends at the theater only to instead develop lifelong phobias of backyard wells, VHS tapes, staticky televisions, girls with untrimmed bangs and being told you have to wait for anything for seven days. The Ring, Gore Verbinski’s exercise in seeing exactly how long it would take before he could convince Naomi Watts to punch a little girl in the face, is now a terrifying horror classic. It was followed in 2005 with a still scary, but not as fetal position-inducing second film from Hideo Nakata — who actually helmed the 1998 scare-fest Ringu, the nightmarish inspiration for the American films as well as a handful of other sequels and spin-offs. Now, almost 10 years after the last victim popped that unmarked video tape into their Vcr, the third American installment is going to drag itself »

'The Ring 3D' Brings on 'I Am Legend' Writer Akiva Goldsman

21 August 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one month after F. Javier Guti&#233rrez signed on to direct Paramount's horror sequel The Ring 3D, Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman has signed on to rewrite the script.

David Loucka (Dream House, House at the End of the Street) wrote the original script, which follows the return of an ominous video tape that, upon watching, will lead to the viewer's death from the nefarious spirit Samara. The project was initially envisioned as a 3D sequel, although it wasn't clear when F. Javier Guti&#233rrez joined the project if it will be crafted in 3D or not. Now it seems Paramount is aiming for a 3D release, although it isn't known if it will be shot in native 3D, or converted in post-production.

Akiva Goldsman May Pen New Draft of The Ring 3D

21 August 2014 9:24 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Yes, Akiva Goldsman is an Academy Award-winning screenwriter, but have you seen Winter’s Tale?  That’s the kind of movie that is so bad, it could wind up becoming a warped classic for that very reason.  In fact, the group I saw it with still hasn’t stopped talking about it.  “I like pecans,” “I have a chicken,” Colin Farrell’s haircut, Russell Crowe’s finger-painting – the list of absurdities could go on and on. Even though A Beautiful Mind is quite the achievement and Goldsman has a number of other strong scripts to his name including Cinderella Man and a personal favorite guilty pleasure, Practical Magic, ever since Winter’s Tale, it’s been tough to get excited about anything he’s working on, and sadly, now that means having more doubts about the future of The Ring franchise as well.  Goldsman is currently in talks to pen »

Script News: Ring 3D, Chaos, One, Moonfall

21 August 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Ring 3D

Paramount is in talks with Akiva Goldsman ("A Beautiful Mind") to pen the next draft of "The Ring 3D," the third chapter in the horror franchise. Goldsman recently did a rewrite of "Insurgent," the upcoming sequel to "Divergent". He would take over from David Loucka who penned the earlier draft of the F. Javier Gutierrez-directed sequel in which the infamous video tape strikes terror yet again.

Chaos Walking: The Knife of Never Letting Go

Jamie Linden ("We Are Marshall," "Dear John") is set to pen the screenplay for Lionsgate's potential franchise starter "Chaos Walking: The Knife of Never Letting Go" based on the 2008 Patrick Ness novel. Linden takes over from Charlie Kaufman who originally adapted the screenplay, while Robert Zemeckis remains attached to direct.

Set in a dystopian world where all living creatures can hear each other’s thoughts, the story follows the only boy »

Akiva Goldsman Circling Rewrite On The Ring 3D

21 August 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

His directing career may have taken a serious blow with the travesty that was Winter’s Tale, but Akiva Goldsman is still killing it in Hollywood as a writer and producer. He recently did a rewrite of the next Divergent film, titled Insurgent, and upcoming projects that he’s producing include Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur series starter and a planned follow-up to I Am Legend. Now, it appears that Goldsman is going back to the horror genre (he exec-produced the first three Paranormal Activity entries) for his next gig – rewriting Paramount’s The Ring 3D.

Like the first two films, The Ring 3D will find Samara returning to strike terror into the hearts of many with her haunted video tape. F. Javier Gutiérrez, the Spanish filmmaker behind Before the Fall, is set to direct. If he strikes a deal with Paramount, Goldsman will be rewriting a script originally by David Loucka (Dream House, »

Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris And Andy Garcia In Talks For Geostorm

18 August 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The absolutely bonkers-sounding Geostorm may be about to transform from a Gerard Butler sci-fi actioner into a star-studded sci-fi blockbuster. Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Abbie Cornish (Limitless), Ed Harris (A Beautiful Mind) and Andy Garcia (The Godfather Part III) are reportedly all in talks for major roles in the pic, which aims to blend elements of a political thriller and an effects-heavy disaster epic.

Butler stars as a gruff but likable satellite designer who, after the world’s climate-controlling satellites malfunction, is forced to team up with his estranged brother (Sturgess) to save the world from a man-made storm of epic proportions. However, as the designer heads into space, his brother discovers a nefarious plot to assassinate the president and plunge the world into even deeper chaos.

If they come aboard, Cornish will play a Secret Service agent, the girlfriend of Butler’s protagonist. Harris will play the secretary of »

Syfy Developing Childhood’s End Miniseries

16 August 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Admittedly, Childhood’s End is another alien invasion/post apocalyptic kind of tale, of which we currently have a glut in our television schedules. But, if Syfy is going to insist on churning these stories out, it may as well be from the pen of the master – Arthur C. Clarke. In fact, since it was first published in 1954, it could be argued that Syfy has actually landed one of the original, and best.

When mysterious Overlords arrive and peacefully invade Earth, they end all war, eradicate poverty, and help humanity to form a world government – the planet becomes a near-utopia. However, the Overlords remain hidden, distant and mysterious until, years later, their unveiling heralds the dawn of a new age. The story has previously been adapted for a two-hour BBC radio presentation by writer Tony Mulholland, but it has never reached our screens – big or small – making this something quite special for Syfy. »

Wilfred – Series Finale Interview with David Zuckerman

14 August 2014 1:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Nerdly had a moment to correspond with David Zuckerman, the mastermind behind the U.S adaptation of FX’s surprisingly sweet and often endearingly crass Wilfred. It ended it’s four season, forty-nine episode run on Wednesday with a touching, poignant tear-inducing hourlong episode. I watched it and felt immediately comfortable and happy with the ending. I was happy that the series ended precisely correct for what the writers had envisioned for the entirety of the run. There were moments that fulfilled everything that the show promised and left no strings lingering.

It ultimately ended as a sobering account of someone’s mental illness. There wasn’t some grand mytholgical ending where Wilfred was a mischevious god named Krungel or Matdamon. Nope.  But it didn’t need that. It offered rational answers for everything and even gave us answers to why Wilfred looks the way he does, or who Bruce is. »

Wgn America is continuing to bet on scripted with two new dramas. The Chicago-based network has given a straight-to-series order to hourlong drama Titans, from Rescue Me's Peter Tolan and Paul Giamatti, and is eyeing a series greenlight for Underground, a pre-Civil War slave drama project from A Beautiful Mind's Akiva Goldsman, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Both projects hail from Sony Pictures Television and Tribune Studios, and are expected to launch in 2015 though Underground — which has begun preproduction and has opened its writers' room — has yet to receive an official order.

"Winter" Brought On By A Diabetic Coma

12 August 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

“Is it possible to love someone so completely they simply can’t die?” Such optimistic, doe-eyed sentimentality is just a taste of the treacly emotional core of Winter’s Tale. At least, it’s a taste of the schmaltzy script penned by Akiva Goldsman (who also takes a rare turn directing the film), a screenwriter better known for his much finer work on A Beautiful Mind and Fringe (to name a couple). No stranger to filmic adaptations (he’s adapted novels by John Grisham and Dan Brown), it seems that he really missed the mark with this adaptation of Mark Helprin’s beloved and lauded novel (but then, condensing an 800-page novel into a two-hour movie would require far more magic than that steeped in the world of Winter’s Tale).

10 Embarrassing Thoughts We All Had Watching Famous Movies

12 August 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney

It’s no secret that movies can feel your head with all types of thoughts and emotions. Maybe you watch a movie like Rocky, A Beautiful Mind or The Shawshank Redemption and become instantly inspired. Perhaps you become super-sensitive and emotional when watching your favorite movie. Films like Toy Story 3, The Green Mile and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial will have you grabbing the tissues quick.

However, sometimes a film can fill your head with a thought you’d probably be too embarrassed to share with anybody you know personally. Given that embarrassment happens in relation to other people, it is a public emotion that makes you feel quite awkward. In other words, you’ve probably kept these thoughts to yourself. Today we are going to be presenting you with ten films that have filled your head with such embarrassing thoughts. One minute you’re in the movie theater »

Ed Harris joins Westworld in villainous role

11 August 2014 10:50 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Westworld finds its baddie in the shape of the mighty Ed Harris...

As production looms for the pilot episode of HBO’s televisual Westworld adaptation, the cast continues to grow. When you have to create a whole creepy theme park and fill it with people, a large cast is to be expected.

Last week we brought you the news that Jeffrey Wright (Boardwalk Empire), Rodrigo Santoro (both 300 movies and Dominion), Shannon Woodward (Raising Hope), Ingrid Bolsø Berdal (Hercules), Angela Srafyan (The Good Guys) and Simon Quarterman (The Devil Inside) were all joining Anthony Hopkins on the show. Cyclops himself, James Marsden, also joined the ranks yesterday (although Film Divider had revealed his involvement some time ago).

Ed Harris has now been added to the mix, too. The actor, famous for roles in A Beautiful Mind, The Abyss, Apollo 13 and many more, will take on the part of The Man In Black, »

Add one more to the growing population of “Westworld.” Veteran actor Ed Harris has joined the Warner Bros. Television/HBO production, TheWrap has learned. Harris will play the ultimate baddie, The Man in Black, who's described by project's producers as “the distillation of pure villainy into one man.” This is a return to HBO for Harris.

A Dark Stain: The Infamous ‘Batman & Robin’

10 August 2014 4:57 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It suffered a 63% box office drop in its second week of cinematic release. It was nominated for eleven Golden Raspberry Awards, winning one. It has been singled out as a source of massive regret for much of its cast. It effectively ended two A-list film careers, signaled the decline of Hollywood’s most celebrated guilty pleasure strongman, and doomed its helmsman to a pantheon of lingering disgrace. It torpedoed a multimillion dollar franchise, wiped out two green-lit blockbusters and put one of pop culture’s biggest names into the dark for eight years. It is often cited as one of the worst movies ever made, and was crowned number one by Empire. Years later, its director would be compelled to actually apologize for it. When you collect your wits at last and begin to look at the mess with something approaching rationalization, you will be hard pressed to find a »
