Hey Ho, Let’s Go! Martin Scorsese To Make A Ramones Movie For 2016

28 August 2014 12:51 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There was a time not too long ago when Martin Scorsese was thought of as a critic’s darling, not a crowd-pleaser. However, since The Aviator hit the $100 million mark in 2005, three of his other DiCaprio films (The Departed, Shutter Island, The Wolf of Wall Street) crossed that box office threshold. More popular than ever, the 71-year-old can make the sorts of pictures he wants. While he is about to start filming his long-brewing Silence and premiere his documentary The 50-Year Argument at the Toronto Film Festival, word is out that the master director is now attached to make a film about the legendary punk group The Ramones.

The rockers’ various estates are now in a deal to give archival material to creative sources, including Scorsese, says Jeff Jampol, who co-manages the band’s estate. “Everybody [from the families] is cooperation and moving in one direction together as a team,” Jampol told Billboard. »

Clint Eastwood's 'American Sniper' with Bradley Cooper joins the Oscar season

12 August 2014 6:44 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How classic can you get? It turns out Clint Eastwood's "American Sniper" with Bradley Cooper will get a limited bow on Christmas Day before going wide on January 16. That puts it smack dab in the middle of the upcoming Oscar season, and gives Universal a little bit of competition on being last pony out of the gate with "Unbroken." It's kind of interesting watching everyone make their moves this season. There seems to be a divide between all the films hitting the early festivals, then a bit of a gap (save for wide launches like "Fury" and "Interstellar"), then a bunch of films content with landing very late in the game. When "American Hustle" and "The Wolf of Wall Street" garnered a lot of awards steam last year after dropping at the last moment (screening in late-November), it changed a lot of thinking…for the time being, that is. »

See The Epic Movie An 11 Year Old Martin Scorsese Wanted To Make

31 July 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Martin Scorsese is one of those directors who you can tell has a clear vision of what he wants to see up on the screen. While some directors might have vague ideas that eventually are realized within a healthy proximity to the images they want to convey (usually found in post), Scorsese is one of those minds who are not satisfied until every small detail of said vision is on display in meticulous detail. Think back to the opening of Hugo, with the beautiful imagery of Paris leading into a gorgeous, long take sweeping through a crowded train platform . all in gorgeous 3D to boot. That's not an accident, that's the result of carefully planned imagery, which Scorsese has long had a knack for, even when he was only 11. Cinephilia And Beyond reprinted some storyboards that the director of Goodfellas, The Aviator, and The Departed drew up for a grand »

Leonardo DiCaprio Playing with a Water Gun Is the New Leonardo DiCaprio Walking Down the Street Meme

29 July 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Leonardo DiCaprio does not live a life like you or I. We spend hours erratically swiping left on a series of interchangeable Tinder matches; Leo travels the world on the arm of the world's most gorgeous models. We are lucky if our coworkers like our Instagrams every once and a while; Leo collaborates with visionary directors like Martin Scorsese and Christopher Nolan. And while we're spending our summers working 9-to-5 in an air conditioned office somewhere, DiCaprio frolics shirtless with a Super Soaker, looking like a #bestlife version of Howard Hughes at the end of The Aviator. But there is one small consolation: Unlike DiCaprio, »

'Pirates 5' Set for 2017, Gunn Back for 'Guardians 2', Elba for 'King Arthur' & Diesel Talks 'xXx 3'

23 July 2014 8:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Disney has announced Pirates of the Caribbean 5 will hit theaters on July 7, 2017. No other details are known though Johnny Depp is expected to star and, for the moment, Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg are still attached to direct. After leaving the Ant-Man production, it looks like Edgar Wright has found his next film in Baby Driver, a crime-themed action thriller of which he will write and was first attached to back in 2008 when it was referred to as a wild spin on the action and crime genre which will be set in the Us. Nothing else is known at this time. Deadline Cameron Crowe's untitled new film starring Emma Stone and Bradley Cooper was set to hit theaters on Christmas Day, but has now been bumped to May 29, 2015. I guess Sony thinks they may have a summer hit on their hands and not much of an awards player. Nothing wrong with that. »

Venice Film Festival Awards Golden Lions to Thelma Schoonmaker and Frederick Wiseman

18 July 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Venice International Film Festival, now celebrating its 71st birthday, has named film editor Thelma Schoonmaker and film director Frederick Wiseman as recipients of the Golden Lions for Lifetime Achievement. The Board of Directors of the Biennale di Venezia, under chair Paolo Baratta, and festival director Alberto Barbera, made the final decision.

Schoonmaker is the first editor to receive the Golden Lion. Intrepid indie doc filmmaker Frederick Wiseman, no stranger to Venice, has made over 40 films that capture everyday human reality around the world, from "Titicut Follies" in 1967 to "Public Housing" in 1997, and new masterpieces "La danse" in 2009 and 2013's "At Berkeley."

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, »

For the second time in his career, Alec Baldwin has signed on to a Howard Hughes biopic: The first was Martin Scorsese's 2004 The Aviator.

Take a Peek Inside Penny Dreadful's Interactive Windows

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. »

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.
