Kevin Kline Romances Dakota Fanning In The Last Of Robin Hood Trailer

24 June 2014 1:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though The Aviator did feature Jude Law as a brawling, amorous version of Errol Elynn, we have yet to see a solid biopic about the Hollywood icon. The Last of Robin Hood, from directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland (Quinceanera), may come closer than any before it though, but even it won’t take a traditional approach to chronicling Flynn’s life. Instead, it focuses on his final days, as Flynn (Kevin Kline) scandalously romances a young starlet (Dakota Fanning) before dying from a heart attack at the age of 50.

A new trailer for The Last of Robin Hood has landed online today, making a strong case for the period drama. In its light tone and focus on old Hollywood glamor, it seems to hew closely to My Week with Marilyn and The Artist, blending committed performances with a quippy script and golden-hued cinematography.

Ros Journal (6/10/14): Spielberg, Scorsese & Lucas... the Future of Movies Circa 1990

10 June 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I came across something today that is endlessly fascinating, a "Siskel & Ebert" television special from 1990 where Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel sit down with Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. The discussion ranges from their careers, where they're going, where they've been, what they expect from the movies in the future, film preservation and the coming of high definition television introduced by Siskel saying, "You add a good sound system as well and some people may never want to go to a movie theater again." At the time, Scorsese's GoodFellas was the next film coming from the trio and he makes mention of his want to make The Age of Innocence, which would be released three years later. Spielberg's next film would be Hook (1991) and even talks of wanting to direct a Howard Hughes movie, which, of course, Spielberg would never make, but Scorsese would tackle in The Aviator fourteen years later. »

‘Penny Dreadful’ Officially Renewed for Season 2

4 June 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Showtime’s new original program, the Gothic horror series Penny Dreadful, is a curious beast for sure, but also one that’s very much been resonating with most of the viewers who’ve been tuning in, during the month that’s passed since its premiere episode aired (read our review). The show is now confirmed to return for a second season, which show creator John Logan – Oscar-nominated screenwriter of such films as The Aviator, Hugo, and Skyfall – has already begun writing.

Penny Dreadful has, so far, lived up to its name; by offering a show that is heavy on the pulpiness and kink, in addition to embracing certain popular trends in pop culture right now (see: blending together multiple iconic characters and/or intellectual properties), ...

Penny Dreadful Ep. 1.01 “Night Work” is bloody, goofy, darkly poetic television

12 May 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Penny Dreadful Season 1, Episode 1 “Night Work”

Written by John Logan

Directed by J.A. Bayona

Airs Sundays at 10pm Et on Showtime

 

There’s nothing like a show confident in what it’s doing. Of the dozens of pilots I watch a year, an overwhelming majority of them feel the need to explain themselves, over and over again: who their characters are, what matters to them, why they exist – and most annoyingly, why this particular story is the most epic, most original, best thing we’ve ever seen: in a world full of short attention spans, supremely critical audiences, and short-lived bombs with anemic audience draw, most pilots have to convince us that we need to be watching their show.

By comparison, Penny Dreadful‘s pilot, “Night Work”, seems like it could care less about explicitly defining itself. Under the pen of John Logan (the screenwriter for The AviatorSkyfallSweeney Todd, »

Alec Baldwin Joins Warren Beatty’s Untitled Howard Hughes Movie

11 May 2014 6:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alec Baldwin must have some kind of fascination with Howard Hughes. He starred in Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator as Pan American World Airways founder Juan Trippe, and has now jumped on board Warren Beatty’s upcoming, as-yet-untitled Howard Hughes film as well.

While it would have been cool to see him reprise his role as Trippe, Baldwin will be playing a different character this time around. In this film, he’ll take the part of Hughes’ lawyer, Bob Maheu.

Beatty will be directing and starring as Hughes, along with a cast that includes Lily Collins, Alden EhrenreichMartin Sheen, Matthew Broderick and Annette Bening. Interestingly enough, the film actually won’t be a Hughes biopic. Instead, it tells the story of his assistant (played by Ehrenreich) and his assistant’s love interest (Collins), who’s an actress.

Though this has been a passion project of Beatty’s for twenty years now, »

Take a Peek Inside Penny Dreadful's Interactive Windows

9 May 2014 3:49 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Looking for another reason to check out Showtime's "Penny Dreadful" this weekend? If you haven't watched the first episode yet, here's a pretty cool incentive: a look at Victorian London through innovative window displays in New York and Los Angeles!

The displays kicked off on May 5th and run through May 18th exclusively at 21st St. and Broadway in NYC and at 7024 Hollywood Blvd. (the Roosevelt Hotel) in La.

Utilizing groundbreaking Lidar laser technology, windows at those locations have been covered with "live vinyl" (Led panels backlighting printed vinyl) to produce an immersive environment that reflects the world of the new Showtime original series "Penny Dreadful."

This half-world is inhabited by characters from the series brought to life by depth-measuring lasers precise enough to capture 50 pedestrians at a time. Characters from the Victorian London period, along with elements from "Penny Dreadful" (wolves, bats, spiders, etc.), were created using individualized artificial intelligence, »

Oscar Bait: Alec Baldwin joins Warren Beatty's Howard Hughes biopic

9 May 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been 10 years since Martin Scorsese's "The Aviator," if you can believe it. The film was one of two dueling Howard Hughes biopics at the time (the other coming from Christopher Nolan), a passion project developed by star Leonardo DiCaprio for director Michael Mann. Mann ended up with biopic fatigue after "The Insider" and "Ali," so he settled into a producer position and DiCaprio convinced his then-newfound colleague Martin Scorsese to direct and the rest was history. But speaking of history, the Howard Hughes story has had its own in Hollywood. During a Santa Barbara Film Festival tribute in February, Scorsese remarked that he had always shied away from it, going on to note that a number of filmmakers had wanted to do it over the years. One of those, of course, was Warren Beatty, and Beatty's version has been slowly clicking into place over the last couple of years. »

10 Best TV Shows Created by Filmmakers

9 May 2014 8:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

John Logan has been nominated for three Academy Awards ("Hugo," "The Aviator," and "Gladiator"). Sam Mendes won an Oscar for directing "American Beauty." While both got their start in the theater, the duo behind Showtime's Sunday premiere of "Penny Dreadful have made a name for themselves as filmmakers. Logan has collaborated with iconic directors like Oliver Stone, Martin Scorsese, and even penned the screenplay for Clint Eastwood's upcoming adaptation of "Jersey Boys," while Mendes made "Road to Perdition," "Jarhead," and "Skyfall" after winning his Oscar. These two are bonafide filmmakers. Successful filmmakers. And now they're making television.  Thankfully, there's nothing wrong with that anymore. The stigma of downgrading from the big screen to the small has all but vanished in 2014, and there are a few major players we have to thank for that. Below, we've listed the 10 best television shows created, developed, or primarily written by individuals who were filmmakers. »

In 1998, he played a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with boogeyman extraordinaire Michael Myers. That same year, he showed school spirit by helping repel an alien invasion of his high school. Years later, in 2007, he fought some of the world’s most vicious vamps in Alaska.

Now Josh Hartnett is in the midst of evil once again, playing the lead in John Logan’s (co-writer of Skyfall) Showtime series, Penny Dreadful. In a show populated by classic literary villains like Frankenstein’s monster and Dorian Gray, Hartnett is sure to have his hands full. You can now catch the first Penny Dreadful episode ahead of its premiere and see Hartnett, a hero to many horror hounds, back in the ring to take another swing at horror’s hellish haunters.

Oscar Bait 2015 Alert: "Genius" With Kidman, Firth, and Law

Yes, dear concerned reader, I know I know. I'm supposed to be thinking about 2014 and who might be Oscar nominated 9 months from now. I'll get there. I will. But I can't let this latest dazzling dangling carrot of 2015 cinematic possibility pass without mention. Because a curious trend continues...

Thomas Wolfe, Aline Bernstein, and Max Perkins to be played by Law, Kidman, and Firth

We've already noted, with raised eyebrow, the shocking rapidity of Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth veritable obsession with working together. As previously mentioned they have Three films together coming out this year. Add a fourth to the pipeline. They will co-star again in Genius which is based on the super acclaimed biography "Max Perkins: Editor Of Genius," by A Scott Berg.

The screenplay is by three time Oscar nominee John Logan (Gladiator, The Aviator, Hugo) and the cast is similarly Oscar-favored. Two time nominee Jude Law, Kidman's »

Italy’s Cinecitta Studios Get Google Doodle Celebration

28 April 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Rome’s Cinecittà Studios are being celebrated with a Google Doodle on the 77th anniversary of the day the sprawling facilities were inaugurated, on April 28 1937, by Benito Mussolini in an attempt to boost the Italian film industry.

This rare distinction for a film studio caused their website to crash.

Alas the historic studios known as Hollywood on the Tiber in their 1960′s heyday have long been languishing, with production levels plummeting since the 1990′s and workers recently protesting against layoffs amid a long-stalled controversial makeover which has yet to materialise.

Still, the massive 100-acre facility once considered Europe’s largest, where “Ben Hur,” “Quo Vadis”  and, more recently, Martin Scorsese’s “Gangs of new York,” and HBO’s “Rome” where shot, has seen some international biz lately. A portion of Baltasar Kormakur’s “Everest,” produced by Working Title, recently shot there. And next up is U.S. comedy “Road To Capri, »
