Win Tickets To The Advance Screening Of The Drop In St. Louis

8 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Drop is a new crime drama from Michaël R. Roskam, the Academy Award nominated director of Bullhead. Based on a screenplay from Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone), The Drop follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters – “money drops” – in the underworld of Brooklyn bars.

Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living – no matter the cost.

The film is directed by Academy Award-nominee Michaël Roskam (Bullhead) with screenplay by Dennis Lehane (Shutter Island) based on his short story Animal Rescue.

The Drop opens in St. Louis on September 12.

Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island to be made into TV series on HBO

26 August 2014 2:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island is to be made into a TV series.

HBO and Paramount will reportedly join forces to produce a new adaptation of the 2010 film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, according to Deadline.

Under the working title Ashecliffe, the series is a prequel to the original film, which focused on a Us marshal investigating the disappearance of a patient from an island hospital.

The new version will be centred around the stories of the hospital's founders.

Scorsese is expected to return to direct the pilot episode of the series, while it will be written by Dennis Lehane, who wrote the original 2003 novel. Lehane also wrote Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River.

Martin Scorsese is also currently working on a music drama for HBO starring Bobby Cannavale and Ray Romano.

HBO, Paramount Plot ‘Shutter Island’ Series ‘Ashecliffe’ With Martin Scorsese And Dennis Lehane

25 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: As the TV biz prepares to celebrate another ground breaking year tonight, underwritten in no small effort by feature talent, the remarkable thing to consider is how much more of this is coming. Here’s one that has great potential: HBO and Paramount Television are making deals to turn the 2010 hit film Shutter Island into a TV series. Tentatively titled Ashecliffe, the plan is for the pilot to be directed by Martin Scorsese from a script by Dennis Lehane, who wrote the bestselling thriller novel that Scorsese and screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis turned into the hit film that Leonardo DiCaprio starred in.

Ashecliffe is the name of the isolated mental hospital where the movie took place, and the series begins before the events of the film. The focus is the past of hospital, and the secrets and misdeeds perpetrated by its founders who erected the hospital in the early 20th »

'Jersey Boys' Producer Sets Up 'Past Due' at Warner Bros.

22 August 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. and producer Robert Lorenz are teaming up on the thriller Past Due. The studio previously collaborated with Lorenz on this year's Jersey Boys.

Robert Lorenz is the longtime producing partner of Clint Eastwood. Before Jersey Boys, the duo brought Trouble with the Curve to the screen, marking Robert Lorenz's directorial debut. Warner Bros. also bought the screenplay for Past Due for the producer to direct, but it's not yet clear if he will be taking the helm.

Thompson Evans wrote the screenplay, which wound up on the Blacklist. No story details have been shared at this time, but it is said to be a female version of A History of Violence, directed by David Cronenberg and starring Viggo Mortensen. The 2005 thriller followed a man trying to forget his violent past, but attracts unwanted attention when he thwarts a robbery.

James Gandolfini Thinks Tom Hardy Is a Loser in New Clip From ‘The Drop’ (Video)

20 August 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

James Gandolfini doesn't think very highly of Tom Hardy in a new clip from “The Drop,” an upcoming crime drama that features the late actor's final performance on the big screen. “I'm not the guy that wasted his entire life waiting for it to start,” Gandolfini tells Hardy's character in the clip (above). “At least I had something once. I was respected, I was feared.” See video: James Gandolfini Is Respected, Feared in Trailer for Final Film ‘The Drop’ The Sept. 12 release was directed by Michaël R. Roskam (“Bullhead”) and written by “Mystic River” author Dennis Lehane. “The Drop” follows a lonely bartender. »

The Drop Clips and Images Featuring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, and James Gandolfini in One of His Final Roles

20 August 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fox Searchlight has released three new clips and some new images from The Drop.  In the film Tom Hardy plays Bob, a former criminal and current bartender working at a bar that serves as a money “drop” for local gangsters.  When the bar gets robbed, Bob and his cousin/employer Marv (James Gandolfini) find themselves in the crosshairs of an investigation and the criminal underworld. I could go either way on this movie.  It looks like a perfectly good thriller that has been marinating a bit too long in the “tough guys in a tough neighborhood doing tough things” tropes that a lot of filmmakers follow too far down the rabbit hole.  On the other hand it also looks like it might balance that out with a genuinely deft touch.  It also has a great cast and a well-regarded director in Bullhead helmer Michaël R. Roskam and it marks one of Gandolfini's final performances. »

‘Ping-Pong Diplomacy’ Movie in the Works with Village Roadshow

18 August 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Village Roadshow Pictures Asia is playing ping-pong, adapting Nicholas Griffin’s “Ping-Pong Diplomacy” as a movie with Story Mining & Supply Co. producing.

The project is in the early stages of development. Scribner published “Ping-Pong Diplomacy: The Secret History Behind the Game That Changed the World” in October.

The story, set in the spring of 1971, recaps the geopolitical realignment stemming from China and the United States suddenly moving toward a detente by staging a series of Ping-Pong matches in China. The American delegation was the first to visit China in 22 years and paved the way for President Nixon’s visit in 1972.

“Ping-Pong Diplomacy” also covers how the Chinese government helped cover up the deaths of millions of peasants during the late 1950s by holding the World Table Tennis Championships during the Great Famine; how championship players were driven to their deaths during the Cultural Revolution; and how the survivors were reconvened »

Alright fright fanatics, it’s Double Feature Adventure time. While my usual sidekick Natty isn’t along for the ride this time (she’s currently hard at work writing the next Pauly Shore film. Not really, but hey, she has big dreams, ok?), I had a jonesin’ for the early horror entries from Finnish director (and obviously my best friend, if only in my childhood dreams), Lauri Mauritz Harjola Aka Renny fucking Harlin. Now before you crazed readers call me out on this one, just take a second and try your hardest to mind-erase the last few films that Harlin has done, and think about how at one time, he was The go-to guy for action films in the ’90s. It would be a lie if I told you that I don’t completely love everything the man did from 1988 to 1999 (which a definite exception given to 1995′s Cutthroat Island, »

Bale Going From Bruce Wayne To Travis McGee in 'Deep Blue Goodbye'

16 July 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A few months back, I reported that James Mangold (The Wolverine) was set to direct an adaptation of John D. MacDonald's "The Deep Blue Goodbye." At the time, I noted that based on the description of the book's title character Travis McGee, it sounded like a good gig for Matthew McConaughey.

Here's my description of the character, who would become the protagonist for several more adaptations if Hollywood can successfully launch him with Deep Blue Goodbye:

"The character is described as something of a beach bum in Florida that lives on his houseboat, The Busted Flush, and doesn't do much of anything until he needs money. When he needs to make some cash, he does for-hire jobs helping people get back their missing property as a "salvage consultant," helps and seduces women along the way, and gets himself into various misadventures while on assignments."

Sounds like it would require someone who has the charming, »

Christian Bale Considering A Deep Blue Good-by As Travis McGee

16 July 2014 4:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The literary works of American author John D. MacDonald could be said to have a very specific tone. With published titles including The Executioners – from which the film Cape Fear was adapted – his stories conjure suspenseful, sinister atmospheres in hardboiled narratives. There are, then, few people better suited to adapt his work for film than Dennis Lehane – himself the noted author of original novels Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island. The story he has adapted is A Deep Blue Good-by featuring the character of Travis McGee, and it is a project with franchise potential – particularly since it seems to have caught the eye of Christian Bale.

Travis McGee is a hard-nosed salvage consultant, who makes his living recovering stolen property – keeping half the value as his fee, with a view to funding an early retirement. In A Deep Blue Good-by, McGee finds himself on the trail of the powerful and evil Junior Allen, »
