Steve Carell to Star in Gore Verbinski Directed Thriller

11 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski will be teaming up with Steve Carrell for  a paranoid thriller that has yet to be titled. The script will be written Steve Conrad, who also wrote The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and The Pursuit Of Happyness.

There are no details on what the story will entail, but it's definitely an interesting team-up of talent. Carell has shown a wide range of talent when it comes to acting, and it will be interesting to see what kind of role his plays in this paranoid thriller. 

According to Variety, after Verbinski is finished with this project he will shoot two projects back-to-back for New Regency. One is a horror film called A Cure For Wellness, which was written by Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road) and an action-comedy that is tentatively Passengers that was also written by Conrad.

Carell will be seen next in the intense drama Foxcatcher. »

'Guardians,' 'Gone Girl,' 'Interstellar' scores get a jump on awards season

8 October 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Somehow over the years the Hollywood Music in Media Awards have escaped me. The event's fifth annual slate of nominees were announced today, and it's a pretty standard assortment of names we've been considering at the forefront of this year's Best Original Score Oscar race, from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to Hans Zimmer to the ubiquitous Alexandre Desplat. The nominees were chosen by an "Hmma advisory board and selection committee," and winners will be voted upon by "music-media industry professionals comprised of select members of the Society of Composers and Lyricists, The Television Academy, the AMPAS Music Branch, Naras, performing rights organizations, film music journalists and music executives," according to the press release. You might raise your eyebrow at something like "Interstellar" being on here when it hasn't been screened for these purposes (or much at all, for that matter). The nominations are also based on hearing music via »

Steve Carell & Gore Verbinski To Work Together On Thriller

7 October 2014 11:43 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Planned for a March 2015 shoot, Steve Carrell and Gore Verbinski are teaming up for a paranoia-fuelled thriller. Although primarily known for his comedic roles, Carrell is receiving a lot of buzz around his dramatic role in Foxcatcher, and not just for his prosthetic nose. Carell first came to our attention as the smug news anchor in Bruce Almighty, before really hitting it big with roles in Anchorman and The 40 Year-old Virgin, as well as starring in the Us version of The Office.

Verbinski on the other hand, has had a versatile career that has taken in huge Hollywood blockbuster franchises in the form of Pirates Of The Caribbean, slapstick farce in Mousehunt, and horror in the remake of The Ring. Although not much else is known about this upcoming project, it will be scripted by Steve Conrad, the man who wrote this year’s The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. »

Steve Carell Heads into Thriller Territory with Director Gore Verbinski

7 October 2014 7:17 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Later this year, we'll see Steve Carell get serious with Foxcatcher, a role that will likely land him at least an Oscar nomination when the time comes. And while he also has the dumb family comedy Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (arriving this week) too, it sounds like he won't be sticking in that territory all the time. Deadline reports Carell will star in an untitled paranoid thriller at New Regency with Pirates of Caribbean franchise director Gore Verbinski at the helm working from a script by The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and The Pursuit of Happyness writer Steve Conrad. Sounds like a good team. So what's the movie about? Well, unfortunately there aren't any plot details available, but the film is described as a paranoid thriller. This will actually be the first film in a series of different films that Verbinski has set up at New Regency. »

Steve Carell Set To Feel Paranoid

7 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Despite establishing himself as a star in family and comedy (and family-comedy) films, Steve Carell has been stretching his thespian muscles recently and receiving some of the best reviews of his career for dark, real-life drama Foxcatcher. He’s dipping his toe into the paranoid thriller business for a new film from Pirates Of The Caribbean veteran Gore Verbinski.Though the film doesn’t yet have a name, it does have a script from The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty’s Steve Conrad and the cameras will roll in March. But in keeping with its paranoid nature, no details of the story have been released. Still, it’ll be interesting to see Carell turn his hand to playing someone who’s not quite sure what’s happening. You know, aside from Brick Tamland.According to Deadline, it’s all part of a multi-film deal for Verbinski, who will reportedly segue »

7 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Steve Carell Joins Paranoid Thriller for Gore Verbinski

7 October 2014 2:33 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Steve Carell has been garnering a lot of attention for his performance in Foxcatcher as of late, which will be released November 14. And while he does have a role in this weekend's Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, he has been branching out from his comedy background into more dramatic material. I particularly loved The Way, Way Back, which, yes, has comedy, but not really in Carell's character. He is a very talented actor, and I am glad he is stretching himself artistically. I will always admire someone for taking a chance. In his continued quest to branch out, director Gore Verbinski has tapped Carell for his upcoming untitled paranoid thriller, which is set to start production in March. On the opposite side of the spectrum, I am not particularly excited about seeing him in a Verbinski movie, mainly because I am not excited to see a Verbinski movie. »

Gore Verbinski to Next Direct Steve Carell in Paranoid Thriller; Lines Up Two More Projects

7 October 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Gore Verbinski is coming back with a vengeance.  After helming the massively popular Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy with a swell mix of elegance and goofiness, the director took his talents to the animated world with the fantastic Rango.  Most recently, however, Verbinski helmed the poorly received and very expensive The Lone Ranger.  As a fan of the filmmaker I was still eager to see what he would do next, and now Verbinski is lining up his next three projects.  He will first helm an untitled paranoid thriller starring Steve Carell, and then plans to shoot the horror thriller A Cure for Wellness and the action comedy Passengers back-to-back.  More after the jump. The folks over at Deadline report that Verbinski has signed on to helm Carell in an untitled paranoid thriller for New Regency, with production scheduled to begin in March.  Steve Conrad (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) penned the screenplay, »

David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' dive bombs Oscar season with a twisted swagger

26 September 2014 9:24 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tonight the New York Film Festival showed off the first of its wares with the opening night world premiere of David Fincher's "Gone Girl." A faithful adaptation of Gillian Flynn's twisted 2012 page-turner, it brings a very different swagger into the season, one of cynicism, the cold chill of deep truths ripe for the kind of dead-faced satire the filmmaker has bathed them in here. But is it an Oscar player for Fox or will the Academy flinch? (I hate myself for even typing that sentence, trust me.) Fincher may not want to play the awards season game anymore after having a lot of the fight taken out of him by his last two campaigns, but here "Gone Girl" is anyway, with a big, splashy premiere at a prestigious fall festival and a release pattern square in the corridor that has proved useful for the last couple of Best Picture winners. »

‘Hector and the Search for Happiness’ finds only shallow observations

22 September 2014 7:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hector and the Search for Happiness

Directed by Peter Chelsom

Written by Peter Chelsom, Tinker Lindsay, and Maria von Heland

USA, 2014

There’s a burgeoning subgenre of films about people in existential crisis setting out on a globe spanning adventure to find themselves, to figure out how to really live. These movies are ostensibly inspirational, but for several reasons, they often play out as somewhat depressing. For one thing, they seem to suggest that all it takes to feel alive is a costly globe-spanning adventure. Even more troublingly, they tend to turn the problems and wonders of the rest of the world into just more glib lessons for their heroes to learn. To the ranks of films like Eat, Pray, Love and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, we can now add Hector and the Search for Happiness.

Hector (Simon Pegg) is a disaffected psychiatrist who walks away from his »
