Laff 2015 Review: The Confines

19 June 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In The Confines, co-writer and director Eytan Rockaway takes viewers into the most unsettling parts of their imaginations with his intense psychological thriller that co-stars Louise Krause (Ava’s Possessions) and Jason Patric (The Lost Boys, Narc). Rather than give us another standard spookfest, Rockaway uses his story as a metaphor for something bigger, and the result is an effectively creepy tale that utilizes its tenebrous atmosphere and brilliant cast to its fullest.

The Confines follows Streak (Krause), a troubled woman trying to turn her life around in an attempt to keep custody of her daughter. She takes on a nighttime security position at an abandoned building where she is tasked with keeping things running smoothly alongside her new co-worker, Cooper (Patric). Things start off well enough, but as you may have suspected, there’s more than meets the eye at Streak’s new job once she discovers there may »

139 movie sequels currently in the works

18 June 2015 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

Laff 2015 Interview: Director Eytan Rockaway Takes Us Into The Confines

16 June 2015 3:32 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Over the weekend, first-time feature filmmaker Eytan Rockaway celebrated the premiere of his supernaturally-infused psychological thriller, The Confines, at the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival. Co-starring Louisa Krause (who recently appeared in the SXSW selection Ava’s Possessions) and Jason Patric (The Lost Boys, Narc), the film follows a young woman who takes on an overnight security job in an attempt at some normalcy in her life; unfortunately, the building she’s overseeing has a sinister past and soon she’s struggling to figure out what’s real and what’s just a figment of her fractured imagination.

During the Fest, Daily Dead had the chance to sit down and speak with Rockaway about what inspired the film, working with both Krause and Patric on The Confines, and his experiences helming a feature for the first time ever.

I really enjoyed how the story of The Confines all plays out by »

16 June 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

And yes, the job involves writing original music. More details […]

Joe Carnahan in Talks to Write & Direct Bad Boys 3

10 June 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Joe Carnahan In Talks To Rewrite Script For And Direct Bad Boys 3. The director of films as as incredible as Narc (2002) and The Grey (2011) and films as mediocre and forgettable as Smokin’ Aces (2006) and The A-Team (2010) is in early talks to rewrite David Guggenheim‘s script for Bad Boys III and possibly direct.

Bad Boys (1995) was one of my favourite action films of the 1990s. All of Michael Bay‘s kineticism was on display, but restrained and measured. This was before he got all that ‘Fuck You Money’ and retreated to chugging out plastic rollercoaster rides in the form of Transformers movies. The attitude of that movie was fun and in your face, it was a rated R buddy-cop film that was filled with incredible action scenes.

The pinnacle of this great aforementioned combination of creative output is strangely found in Bad Boys 2, for most. I was always »

Joe Carnahan is Eying 'Bad Boys 3'c I'm In

10 June 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As a fan of Joe Carnahan's work -- Narc, Stretch, Smokin' Aces, The Grey -- I'm pretty much up for whatever he's working on next and the idea of him stepping in for Michael Bay and taking over the Bad Boys franchise sounds like something right up his alley. Word from Deadline is Carnahan has been brought on to take a pass at David Guggenheim's script for a Bad Boys 3 with eyes at possibly directing. The goal is to have the project ready for Will Smith to consider as soon as he's done shooting Suicide Squad with David Ayer. Considering Smith could use a couple big hits after After Earth and the modest returns for Focus, I have to imagine he'd be up for returning to one of his most popular franchise and I think we all know Martin Lawrence is in. In fact, Lawrence was on »

Joe Carnahan in talks for Bad Boys 3

10 June 2015 6:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that a new Bad Boys film, the third in the franchise, is still in active development and may have found itself a director.

Smokin’ Aces and Narc helmer Joe Carnahan has been linked to the film, with early talks between the director and Sony rumoured to have already taken place. David Guggenheim (Safe House) has written the new film, which Sony is hoping will go into production within the next year after star Will Smith has completed his work on Warner Bros. Pictures’ DC adaptation, Suicide Squad. As yet, there’s no word on whether fellow co-star Martin Lawrence will feature.

Bad Boys was released in 1995, with its sequel arriving in 2003, and together the two films grossed over $410 million worldwide.

Is Joe Carnahan Going To Direct Bad Boys 3?

10 June 2015 12:47 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

It’s been a long time since we heard anything about Bad Boys 3, a movie that has been talked about a lot, but one I think we resign ourselves to never seeing the more we hear about it maybe happening. But the latest piece of news about the second sequel (fifteen years after Bad Boys 2) to Michael Bay’s most beloved franchise is something that fills me with hope, with Deadline reporting that Joe Carnahan, no stranger to big budget, over the top action thanks to The A-Team and Smokin’ Aces (but also capable of a whole lot more, as we saw with Narc and The Grey), is being brought in by Sony with an eye to re-write David Guggenheim’s existing script, and possibly direct if it finally goes forward. Michael Bay seems totally enamoured with giant CG robots at the moment, so if he isn’t returning, »

Bad Boys 3 happening, apparently without Michael Bay

9 June 2015 10:47 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Bay won't be directing the next Bad Boys film, starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. But Joe Carnahan might...

It's little secret that plans have been afoot for a third Bad Boys movie for some time, with the problem, as producer Jerry Bruckheimer told us back in summer 2013, being reuniting the key personnel. Back then, he was "trying to find a hole in Will Smith's schedule", and with regards director Michael Bay (who helmed the first two films), "trying to get on his docket".

With Michael Bay's future seemingly tied into making endless Transformers movies right now though (as well as new sci-fi movie Time Salvager), it seemed that the chances of him finding time for Bad Boys 3 were slim. And so it's proven, as a new director is apparently now in talks to make the film.

Sony has turned to Narc, The A-Team and The Grey helmer Joe Carnahan, »

Bad Boys 3 movie: Joe Carnahan to write and direct?

9 June 2015 9:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Bad Boys 3 movie A Bad Boys 3 movie could be written and directed by Joe Carnahan, the filmmaker who brought us the likes of The Grey, Smokin’ Aces and The A-Team movie.

We love Bad Boys here at Thn, and can’t believe that Michael Bay hasn’t serviced us with one since 2003. Now it looks like the challenge of putting a Bad Boys 3 movie onto the screen has fallen to The Grey director Joe Carnahan who is in very early talks to write and direct.

The filmmaker, who also brought us that rather brilliant Narc movie many years ago, will actually rewrite David Guggenheim‘s ‘strong draft’ for a potential Bad Boys 3 movie for producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Deadline, who broke the story, reveal that this could be Will Smith‘s next movie following his work on the Suicide Squad movie over at Warner Bros.

Carnahan To Pen, Maybe Direct "Bad Boys 3"

9 June 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filmmaker Joe Carnahan ("Narc," "The Grey") is in early talks to pen a new draft and possibly direct a third film in the "Bad Boys" action film franchise.

Carnahan will definitely be rewriting the script by David Guggenheim ("Safe House") and could potentially helm the project for which both Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are being sought to return.

Carnahan does not have a deal in place yet, but his masculine sensibility and efficient filmmaking style seems a good fit for the franchise which had two previous entries directed by Michael Bay.

Joe Carnahan To Helm "Motorcase"

12 March 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

DreamWorks has set Joe Carnahan ("The Grey," "Narc") to write and direct their long-gestating action thriller "Motorcade".

The story deals with a terrorist attack on the U.S. President's motorcade as he travels through Los Angeles, and was originally pitched back in 2004 by Hans Bauer and Craig Mitchell.

Several other high-profile names have been linked to the project in the past including Tom Cruise and Len Wiseman. Billy Ray previously took at shot at the script which shifted the original pitch's action from New York to Los Angeles.

It's unclear what changes Carnahan's version will employ just yet. Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald will executive produce.

Joe Carnahan Will Conduct DreamWorks’ Motorcade

11 March 2015 7:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Joe Carnahan has been tapped to write and direct Motorcade for DreamWorks, a project that the studio has had in the works for over a decade.

The thriller will center on a Secret Service agent who fails to stop a deadly and vicious attack on the President of the United States as he rides in a motorcade.

Hans Bauer and Craig Mitchell originally pitched the pic to DreamWorks back in 2004, and the studio picked it up for a modest sum. Over the years, writers Ehren Kruger, Billy Ray and Robert Rodat have all circled for rewrites, and Jon Cassar was at one point attached to direct, but somehow Motorcade has yet to be made. Carnahan, though, is expected to take it on as his next project.

The helmer last made comic thriller Stretch, starring Patrick Wilson, for Blumhouse, which eventually tabled its release and quietly sent it on to Netflix, »
