Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti set to play tennis stars Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs for HBO Films

11 March 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect) and Paul Giamatti (Sideways) are set to star in a new project for HBO and Playtone about the Battle of the Sexes tennis match of 1973 which saw Billie Jean King beat former Wimbledon champion Bobby Riggs.

Deadline reports that writer David Auburn (Proof) is set to pen the film, with Playtone producing partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman executive producing alongside Banks and her husband and producing partner Max Handelman under their Brownstone Productions company.

This isn’t the first project based upon the match to have been greenlit recently. Last year, Chernin Entertainment and Gary Sanchez Productions, headed by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, announced it is set to make Match Maker, based on an Epsn article by Don Van Matta Jr.

Written by Steve Conrad (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), the film version will see Ferrell playing Riggs in a version where “Riggs »

First Full-Length Trailer Arrives For Dead Rising: Watchtower

9 March 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The fevered excitement of a potential zombie apocalypse is a perfect mining ground for an array of entertainment arenas. From TV shows, video games and movies, there’s never been a better time to pronounce your love of those flesh-gobbling undead shufflers than turning to a screen near you. While AMC’s The Walking Dead has commandeered the small screen for several years now, Legendary are hoping to take a swipe at the zombie flagship with their effort, Dead Rising: Watchtower.

Zach Lipovsky’s live-action adaptation showcases its roots in this first full-length trailer, which presents a mix of violent splatter-movie motifs and tongue-in-cheek comedy. In this case, its loyalty isn’t to a novel or comic book, but to the best-selling video game series which has so far shifted over 7.6 million units worldwide.

Starring Jesse Metcalf, Dennis Haysbert and Virginia Madsen, Dead Rising: Watchtower explores familiar territory to most »

First Intense Clip from The Dead Rising Movie!

4 March 2015 9:21 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Zach Lipovsky's adaptation of the popular zombie video games has a lot to live up to. The games are extremely popular and visceral. Also super fun. This first clip appears to mirror the intensity pretty well and I'd say the production level looks great for an online release.

Dead Rising: Watchtower will premier first on Crackle as a 90 minute feature, after which it will appear elsewhere in shorter installments.

Synopsis:

After a zombie outbreak, four survivors must evade infection while tracking down the cause of the epidemic.. Over-the-top media coverage adds to the chaos while signs point to a government conspiracy.

Dead Rising: Watchtower Unveils Gory First Clip

4 March 2015 8:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With little over three weeks until its premiere, Crackle has debuted the first clip for Zach Lipovsky’s live-action adaptation, Dead Rising: Watchtower.

As with the vast majority of other entries into the genre, this snippet features that scene; where the infected spanner gets thrown into the works and all hell breaks loose. Starring Jesse Metcalfe and Keegan Connor Tracy, we see the show’s main characters begin to piece together the puzzle to discover that, much like the title suggests, the dead are indeed beginning to rise up for a spot of lunch.

Mixing some interesting cinematography with first-person shots, Dead Rising: Watchtower is decidedly low-key, and that’s precisely the angle Lipovsky is aiming for. The fact that his adaptation is hitting the web as a digital release will no doubt allow for more creative freedom outside of the typical studio system, and we hope that the writing »

iZombie: "Co-created and executive produced by Rob Thomas & Diane Ruggiero-Wright (Veronica Mars), along with executive producers Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge (also of Veronica Mars), Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time) stars as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a 25-year-old medical resident on the fast track to a perfect life … until she’s turned into a zombie.

Virginia Madsen Joins Jennifer Lawrence In David O. Russell’s Joy

26 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Once you’re in with David O. Russell, you’re really in. The Oscar-nominated director’s next film, buzzy biopic Joy, will reunite him with American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, ensuring another round of Oscar nominations for them all. Luckily, though, it won’t be all familiar faces for Russell: Sideways actress Virginia Madsen has just joined the cast, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

The film, set for a prime awards season release on Christmas Day this year, will focus on Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano (Lawrence), who began inventing at a young age and eventually hit it big with the Mop and Huggable Hampers, in addition to more than 100 other patents. As her empire grew, Mangano also juggled the responsibilities of playing single mom to three children.

Did the 2005 Oscars get it right?

18 February 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...

It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it. But the one that you watched once, and affected you once. It's the only way, anyway, I can think of why A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar.

This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »

Less than one month after the first trailer debuted for the upcoming digital feature Dead Rising: Watchtower, Crackle has now unveiled the poster, featuring star Jesse Metcalfe wielding what is described as a "sledge saw," a combination of a sledge hammer and a chainsaw.

When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, the four leads must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic, with all signs pointing to a government conspiracy.

Damien Chazelle or Paul Thomas Anderson Could Become Fifth Adapted Screenplay Winner to Also Direct the Film

29 January 2015 6:42 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Adapted screenplay nominees Damien Chazelle and Paul Thomas Anderson have been nominated for films that they also directed.

Chazelle’s Whiplash, about an aspiring jazz drummer and his sadistic instructor, is his second feature film and is adapted from a short film of the same name that he also wrote and directed. The short won the jury award for short films at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Whiplash was nominated for four other awards, including best picture.

Anderson received his second adapted screenplay nomination for Inherent Vice, based on Thomas Pynchon’s novel of the same name. The film was also nominated for costume design. Anderson previously received an adapted screenplay nomination for 2007’s There Will Be Blood, which he also directed. He received a best director nomination, and the film was nominated for best picture.

If either wins, they will become the fifth adapted screenplay »

Most Adapted Screenplay Winners Are Adapted From Books

28 January 2015 7:52 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Only one of this year’s adapted screenplay nominees isn’t adapted from a book, and that’s Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash, which is adapted from his short film of the same name that took home the jury prize for short film from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The other four adaptations all come from books, three non-fiction and one fiction.

American Sniper is based on Chris Kyle’s (portrayed in the film by Bradley Cooper) autobiography of the same name, which he wrote with Scott McEwan and Jim DeFelice.

The Imitation Game is adapted from Alan Turing: The Enigma, written by Andrew Hodges, a mathematician and author. Turing is played by Benedict Cumberbatch in the film.

Adapted from Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen Hawking by Jane Hawking, The Theory of Everything explores Stephen Hawking’s relationship with his ex-wife. The couple is played »
