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, »

Christian Bale in talks to play Travis McGee in The Deep Blue Good-By

16 July 2014 3:24 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Christian Bale has set his sights on a potential action/crime franchise, as Variety reports that the Academy Award winner is in talks to play Travis McGee in an adaptation of the 1964 John D. MacDonald novel, The Deep Blue Good-By.

MacDonald wrote 21 novels starring the McGee character over a twenty year period, from 1964 to 1984. Two film adaptations have been made; first came 1970′s Darker Than Amber starring Rod Taylor, then the 1983 made-for-tv-movie Travis McGee (based on the novel The Empty Copper Sea) starring Sam Elliot.

Unlike other detectives in crime fiction, Travis McGee is neither a police officer or licensed private detective. Instead, he considers himself a “salvage consultant,” who recovers others’ lost property for a fee (managing to get himself into trouble along the way, with plenty of bad guy fighting and woman wooing).

The Deep Blue Good-By is set to be directed by Walk the Line »

Christian Bale Set to Play Travis McGee in The Deep Blue Goodbye

16 July 2014 2:21 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Circling through various stages of development for some time, it looks like John D. MacDonald’s best-selling series is finally about to make it to the big screen, with Christian Bale eyeing the lead in The Deep Blue Goodbye.

The 1964 novel is the first of twenty-one in the Travis McGee series, and has previously had the likes of Oliver Stone and Paul Greengrass in the director’s chair, as well as Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead.

DiCaprio is still on board as a producer, but talks have commenced with Christian Bale to star as the hero, Travis McGee. And though there’s no offer yet, Bale is reported to have agreed to star, and an offer is expected shortly.

James Mangold, coming off the back of helming The Wolverine, has just closed his deal to direct, and DiCaprio will be producing alongside Jennifer Davisson Killoran (The Ides of March, Out of the Furnace »

Film Review: ‘Rage’

12 July 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When an ex-mobster’s daughter is found dead, the repressed return with a vengeance that feels more like a whimper in “Rage,” a silly and shopworn Nicolas Cage action vehicle that plays like a poor man’s “Taken,” “Mystic River” and “A History of Violence” rolled into one. Proficiently made but fatally unpersuasive in its portrayal of internecine gang warfare, this thuggish melodrama piles on the foreign accents and paint-by-numbers brutality, all served up with a grim, operatic self-seriousness that gives Cage’s antihero little room to maneuver. Spanish genre helmer Paco Cabezas’ English-language debut will find a few fans on VOD, where it’s rolling out simultaneously with its limited theatrical release.

Commercially and, er, culturally speaking, “Rage” is unlikely to do for Cage what the “Taken” movies have done for Liam Neeson; as scripted by James Agnew and Sean Keller (who previously collaborated on Dario Argento’s ill-fated »

Dennis Lehane Gets The Drop on Us

8 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr explores the cinematic adaptations of Dennis Lehane’s work…

‘I have no desire to operate on my own children’

Dennis Lehane explains why he is against adapting his own books.

Best-selling author, Boston native and screenwriter Dennis Lehane has been accused of a few things in life. For instance there are people convinced this author of hard edged thrillers wrote Mystic Pizza. That late eighties, tissue thin chick flick which helped launch Julia Roberts onto the world stage before Gary Marshall, Richard Gere and a Lotus finished the job. Dennis Lehane wrote Mystic River by the way, just to avoid any confusion.

Then there’s the small issue of his fan mail. Not all of it you understand, just the celebrity stuff he continues to receive for writing The Departed. You see his only problem is William Monahan wrote the book, adapted it into a screenplay and received the Oscar. »

Uplifting biopic of Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) - the Brooklyn Dodgers' legendary Number 42 who was the first black player to take on the institutional racism of American baseball. Harrison Ford plays Dodgers' audacious general manager Branch Rickey, the guiding light behind Robinson's rise. Director Brian Helgeland (writer of La Confidential and Mystic River) never loses sight of the fact that it was Robinson's on-field talent that broke most barriers, authentically recreating the atmosphere and excitement of major league clashes in the 1940s. »

What Went Wrong with 'Jersey Boys'? (Video)

25 June 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It's easy to see how Warner Bros. turned to their A-list director-producer Clint Eastwood, known for his calm, economic, unpretentious, methodical filmmaking, for the 60s period musical "Jersey Boys." After directing 37 movies, he can do period in his sleep, from "Invictus" to "Changeling,"--on a budget. He's a composer and jazz pianist who knows music (Cannes prize-winner "Bird").  "It's just a lot of good songs," he told Vanity Fair. "You go home humming a different one every night." And he's great with actors. The Tony-winning musical also had a good chance of being Oscar bait--likely to play well to the seniors in the Academy who have voted Eastwood movies many Oscars over the years, from "Mystic River" to Best Picture-winners "Unforgiven" and "Million Dollar Baby." But the movie looks bland and brown: while it may be accurate for the period, it's not »

In praise of Eli Wallach, the man who was Tuco

25 June 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

How many careers can one man have? Eli Wallach was a Tony award-winning Broadway actor and a soldier, a leading pioneer in the realm of Method acting and Mr. Freeze on the Batman TV show, a villainous live wire and an elderly person so intrinsically soulful that just his presence in a movie could make you happy and sad for no apparent reason.

Wallach was already over 50 when he got his most famous role, and he had almost 50 years left on this earth afterwards. There are a couple of generations that probably only know the older Wallach, stepping into movies »

Why Modern Movie Musicals Need Better Directors Asap

25 June 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Jersey Boys" might have been the Broadway hit of the year in 2005, but Clint Eastwood's film isn't making too many waves at the box office. Most critics haven't been too enthused either, and not without reason. The appeal of Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice's show was that the audience could get swept up in live performances of songs they knew and loved, and that they could sing and dance along. You can't really do that in the movie theater unless "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" is playing, and the fun (if slight) jukebox musical is turned into a tired music biopic about a bunch of guys who had personal problems, stopped liking each other, and, oh, by the way, also sang some first-rate tunes. Even if "Jersey Boys" absolutely had to be turned into a movie, Eastwood's style is totally at odds with the material. The film retains »

Trailer for Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini's The Drop

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

Fox Searchlight Pictures has released an international trailer for Tom Hardy and the late James Gandolfini's crime thriller The Drop. The movie is based on a short story called Animal Rescue written by Dennis Lehane, who wrote the novels Mystic River, Shutter Island and Gone Baby Gone. This guy is a great storyteller of dark tales, and this looks like it's going to be a heavy movie.

The story "follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (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 (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 Drop also stars Noomi Rapace, »

Legendary actor Eli Wallach, best known for his role as the villainous Tuco in The Good the Bad and the Ugly, passed away in New York City yesterday at the age of 98. The actor's passing was confirmed by his daughter, Katherine.

Born in 1915 in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, Eli Wallach began studying acting after receiving a B.A. and M.S. in education from the University of Texas and City College of New York. His acting ambitions were cut short when he was drafted to serve in World War II, but he began acting in several plays upon his return to New York in 1945. In 1948, he was one of the 20 core actors who helped found The Actor's Studio, where he honed his method acting craft.

Actor Eli Wallach Dead at 98

25 June 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

“You never had a rope around your neck. Well, I’m going to tell you something. When that rope starts to pull tight, you can feel the Devil bite your ass.”

A shame when they go so young!

98! –and his last role was just four years ago! Eli Wallach had such a long and memorable career beginning with Baby Doll in 1956. It was always nice seeing him in more recent films like Eastwood’s Mystic River and in the back of my mind I would think about the great villains he played like Tuco in The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, Calvera in The Magnificent Seven, and even Mr. Freeze on TV’s Batman! He was a great actor and true gentleman who, fortunately for us, led a long and active life. Wallach enjoyed a long, loving relationship with his wife of 66 years, actress Anne Jackson and is also survived by three children, »

Eli Wallach Has Died at the Age of 98

25 June 2014 7:16 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The first time I probably saw Eli Wallach was in the 1960s "Batman" television show as Mr. Freeze, but I don't remember anything from those episodes other than how it looked. The first time I saw Wallach and remember him from a role in a movie is probably as Don Altobello in Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather: Part III. But Wallach's most memorable role, for me at least, is undoubtedly as Tuco in Sergio Leone's iconic spaghetti western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Today we learn Wallach is as we will remember him as he died Tuesday, June 24, at the age of 98. His death was confirmed by his daughter Katherine. Wallach's career spanned more than 60 years and also included films such as Elia Kazan's Baby Doll, Clint Eastwood's Mystic River, John Sturgess' The Magnificent Seven, John Huston's The Misfits and the massive ensemble »

Rip Eli Wallach

25 June 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A true acting legend, Eli Wallach has sadly passed away at the age of 98. The son of Polish Jewish growing up in New York City, Wallach began his career in 1956, his first notable role came in 1960's The Magnificent Seven, playing bandit leader Calvera. Westerns were his bread and butter for much of his early career, and this career path brought him his most famous role, Tuco in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. The Ugly of the title, Wallach put in an extremely memorable turn, even giving Clint Eastwood a run for his money. The death of the Western genre didn't mean the end of his career, and he would go onto appear in movies for many, many years to come, including The Two Jakes, The Godfather Part III, Mystic River, The Holiday, The Hoax, and Wall Street: The Mony Never Sleeps.
