“The Raven Cycle” Gets Pilot Order, Catherine Hardwicke to Direct

Fantasy fans, rejoice. Maggie Stiefvater’s best-selling four-book series “The Raven Cycle” is being adapted for TV, and Catherine Hardwicke has signed on to helm the pilot and serve as an executive producer, Birth.Movies.Death. reports.

According to Publishers Marketplace, the story follows “four private school boys and a psychic’s daughter who quest for a sleeping king of Welsh legend in the mountains of Virginia, uncovering ancient magic, powerful dreams, and the devils in themselves.” The first installment of “The Raven Cycle” was published in 2012, and the final book hit shelves in 2016.

Andrew Miller (“The Secret Circle”) will act as showrunner. No word on casting or potential networks.

Another upcoming adaptation of a woman-penned fantasy novel we’re keeping an eye on is “Maresi.” The award-winning Ya title was written by Finnish author Maria Turtschaninoff, and the film rights to the book have been optioned by Film4, the London-based company behind Andrea Arnold’s “American Honey.”

Miss You Already,” “Twilight,” and “Thirteen” are among Hardwicke’s credits. She helmed the music video for “Til It Happens to You,” the Oscar-nominated Lady Gaga and Diane Warren song featured in 2015 documentary “The Hunting Ground.” The film investigates the ubiquity of sexual assault on U.S. campuses and the rape culture within those institutions that denies survivors justice.

Hardwicke’s upcoming projects include a big screen adaptation of Ya novel “Stargirl” toplined by Joey King (“Fargo”) and a remake of the 2011 Academy Award-nominated Mexican drama “Miss Bala.”

Catherine Hardwicke Set to Direct “Miss Bala” Remake for Sony

Catherine Hardwicke: Tiff/YouTube

Catherine Hardwicke has found her next gig. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the “Twilight” director will helm Sony’s remake of “Miss Bala,” a 2011 Mexican drama from Gerardo Naranjo.

The original film sees protagonist Laura (Stephanie Sigman) enter the Miss Baja beauty pageant. “During rehearsals, she witnesses a gang killing DEA agents and nightclub-goers and is then kidnapped by the gang and forced to work for them in the deadly drug war,” THR summarizes. “Miss Bala” premiered at Cannes in the Un Certain Regard competition and was Mexico’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars.

The remake will center on Gloria Meyer, “who finds herself a pawn, after her friend Suzu goes missing in Tijuana, in a dangerous game being played by the CIA, the DEA and a charismatic young crime boss,” the source details. Deadline reports that “Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez is one of the actresses being pursued to play Gloria.

Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer will pen the script, while Kevin Misher (Kimberly Peirce’s “Carrie”) and Pablo Cruz (the original “Miss Bala”) will produce. Andy Berman (“Rosewood”) will exec produce.

“The truth is, most of those female stories that are contending for Oscars are directed by men. Let’s be honest,” Hardwicke has said about the films that generate awards buzz. “All the ones that were getting an Oscar pitch with the money and everything behind them were by men.”

Hardwicke’s “Twilight” earned $383 million worldwide on a budget of $37 million. It still holds the record of the highest opening weekend for a female director. “Miss You Already,” “Red Riding Hood,” and “Thirteen” are among her other films. Hardwicke is attached to direct the big screen adaptation of Ya novel “Stargirl” toplined by Joey King (“Fargo”).

Evan Rachel Wood to Make Directorial Debut

22 March 2017 12:02 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Evan Rachel Wood in “Westworld

Westworld’s” Evan Rachel Wood is stepping behind the camera. After more than 20 years of acting in the business, Wood will make her directorial debut. In an interview with Vulture, Jenny Slate (“Obvious Child”) revealed that she’s been cast in the film, which co-stars Wood, Alison Pill (“The Newsroom”), and Cynthia Erivo (Broadway’s “The Color Purple”).

Little is known about the project besides the fact that it’s a road trip movie and it’s filming in Vancouver. No word on its title, who penned the script, who is producing, nor any other plot details.

Wood currently stars in HBO’s big budget science fiction Western “Westworld,” which concluded its first season in December 2016. She plays Dolores, the oldest android host working in the park. The show, created by Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, is a ratings hit. A second season is confirmed, but no word on a premiere date.

It was a woman who directed Wood in her breakout big screen role, 2003’s “Thirteen.” The Catherine Hardwicke film centers on the dysfunctional relationship between two troubled teen girls (Wood and “Twilight’s” Nikki Reed). Wood’s other credits include “Doll & Em,” “The Ides of March,” “True Blood,” “Mildred Pierce,” “Across the Universe,” and “The Wrestler.” Wood’s most recent film credit is Patricia Rozema’s “Into the Forest,” a tale of two sisters (Wood and Ellen Page) struggling to survive the elements, intruders, and each other in the wake of a mass power outage set in the not-so-distant future.

While the specifics are admittedly scarce, it seems like Wood’s directing project will be women-centric based on the casting news. “I don’t think people have a problem [with female-led stories.] I think it’s assumed because it’s a male-driven world and lot of entertainment decisions are made mainly by men,” Wood has said in the past. “We’re getting better about it but the misconception that if it’s female-driven, you’re gonna alienate people — that does men a disservice because you’re not letting them into that world and to really see women as people,” she observed. “We just have to give people a chance and give these films a chance and let the audience decide. Stop assuming that men are things incapable of empathy. It’s almost insulting to men!”

In defence of Vanilla Sky

Robin Bell Apr 18, 2017

Cameron Crowe and Tom Cruise reteamed, following Jerry Maguire, on Vanilla Sky. It's a film with far fewer fans...

This article contains spoilers for Vanilla Sky.

Memorable moments - it seemed to be what Cameron Crowe had a knack for creating. Lloyd Dobler stood with a ghetto blaster held aloft in Say Anything, the 'Show me the money' or 'You had me at hello' scenes from Jerry Maguire, the singalong of Tiny Dancer or the imminent plane crash in Almost Famous. It also seemed Cameron Crowe could do no wrong on the wave of the success of those films, but then there came a film which, instead of creating memorable moments, everybody seemed to want to forget all about.

In 2001, Cameron Crowe made the much maligned Vanilla Sky.

It seemed to really rub people up the wrong way upon release. Was this because it wasn't what they »

Westworld season 2: Evan Rachel Wood ready to unleash Dolores

14 March 2017 3:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Apr 26, 2017

Actress Evan Rachel Wood has been talking about the evolution of her character Dolores in season 2 of HBO's Westworld...

If you've seen Evan Rachel Wood in more than a few things, you'll know she's an immensely talented woman, so clued-in viewers may have been a bit confused at the start of Westword to see her playing Dolores, a kind of trifling, two-dimensional character from the outset, only to witness the actress behind such standout performances as Veda in Mildred Pierce or Tracy in Thirteen shake the very foundations of everything the season had built in that final episode.

Whether Wood knew what was in store for Dolores when she signed on to the HBO show is up for debate - showrunner Jonathan Nolan has admitted they were pretty much writing that first season as »

Sundance: 13 Biggest Breakout Performances

28 January 2017 12:04 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Sundance Film Festival has an impressive track record of launching major careers — from Jennifer Lawrence (“Winter’s Bone”) to Michael B. Jordan (“Fruitvale Station”) to Ryan Gosling (“The Believer”). As this year’s Park City premieres come to an end, Variety’s critics and reporters offer their favorite breakout performances.

1. Kumail Nanjiani, “The Big Sick

The stand-up comedian and “Silicon Valley” actor proves he’s got the heart of a leading man in “The Big Sick.” Nanjiani partnered with his wife to write the heavily autobiographical story of a Pakistani-comic forced to shake off his arrested development when his girlfriend suffers a life-threatening illness. The film had the audience at its Sundance premiere howling, and went on to top that triumphant debut by landing the biggest deal of the festival, a $12.5 million pact from Amazon, after an all-night bidding war. –Brent Lang

Inside Mischa Barton's Rocky Road After O.C. Stardom Made Her a Tabloid Magnet

28 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Stardom hit Mischa Barton hard and fast. Born in England but raised in New York, she started acting in theater when she was still in single digits, then scored a role—in a TV movie called New York Crossing—when she was barely 10. Within a couple years she had been on the big screen in Notting Hill and The Sixth Sense, and then she played the high school love interest of a pre-Thirteen Evan Rachel Wood in the ABC drama Once and Again. So Barton was technically a show business veteran by the time she joined the cast of The O.C. at 17. But as we all know now, the Fox drama would prove to be, if not quite as enduring as that other cult-classic, prime-time teen »

Golden Globe TV Predictions: Who Will Win?

5 January 2017 12:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When it comes to predicting the Golden Globes, the only sure thing is to expect the unexpected. Hollywood Foreign Press voters are known for making bold choices (“Mozart in the Jungle,” “The Affair,” “Girls,” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” have all won top series prizes in recent years), and shining the spotlight on newcomers (“Transparent,” “Mr. Robot,” and “Homeland” all triumphed at the Globes first before going on to Emmy glory). With that in mind we’ve parsed the tea leaves on this year’s impressive line-up of TV nominees to gauge who’s out front heading into Sunday.

Television Series – Drama

For the second year in a row, HBO’s epic “Game of Thrones” is the only returning nominee in this category. But the ratings powerhouse and Emmy champ has never won. Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. voters have an affinity for flashy new entries, and this year they’ve got an embarrassment of riches to choose from. Netflix »
