11 November 2015 9:46 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Annie Hall” has been named the funniest screenplay in voting by the members of the Writers Guild of America.

The script by Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman topped “Some Like it Hot,” “Groundhog Day,” “Airplane!” and “Tootsie,” which make up the rest of the top five. “Young Frankenstein,” “Dr. Strangelove,” “Blazing Saddles,” “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and “National Lampoon’s Animal House” rounded out the top 10.

The awards for the 101 funniest screenplays were announced at the Arclight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood at the conclusion of two hours of panel discussions and clips, hosted by Rob Reiner. He noted that his “This Is Spinal Tap” script had finished at the No. 11 spot — a coincidence that recalled the “go to 11” amplifier joke in the film.

The “Annie Hall” screenplay won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay in 1977. Allen had six other scripts on the list — “Sleeper,” “Bananas,” “Take the Money and Run, »

Academy Award Film Series: It Takes Eastwood to Get Enthusiastic Praise for Derivative, Mostly Predictable Father Figure Melo

6 October 2015 5:33 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Million Dollar Baby' movie with Hilary Swank and Clint Eastwood. 'Million Dollar Baby' movie: Clint Eastwood contrived, overlong drama made (barely) watchable by first-rate central performance Fresh off the enthusiastically received – and insincere – Mystic River, Clint Eastwood went on to tackle the ups and downs of the boxing world in the 2004 melo Million Dollar Baby. Despite the cheery title, this is not the usual Rocky-esque rags-to-riches story of the determined underdog who inevitably becomes a super-topdog once she (in this case it's a “she”) puts on her gloves, jumps into the boxing ring, and starts using other women as punching bags. That's because about two-thirds into the film, Million Dollar Baby takes a radical turn toward tragedy that is as unexpected as everything else on screen is painfully predictable. In fact, once the dust is settled, even that last third quickly derails into the same sentimental mush Eastwood and »

Alexander Payne gets go ahead to shrink Matt Damon in Downsizing

6 October 2015 3:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Descendants and Nebraska director Alexander Payne is finally getting to make his sci-fi satire Downsizing, starring Matt Damon...

For a while there, Alexander Payne's Downsizing sounded like one of those great sci-fi projects that was never going to happen. Between his acclaimed films Sideways and The Descendants, Payne was working on a sci-fi satire where the less wealthy are given the opportunity to shrink themselves. It makes perfect sense when you think about it; with property prices shooting up all the time, wouldn't it make better economic sense to shrink yourself to fit a small property instead of paying a fortune in rent for somewhere larger?

Paul Giamatti, Reese Witherspoon (both Payne collaborators, from Election and Sideways respectively) were set to star alongside Sacha Baron Cohen. It all sounded promising, but little more was heard about Downsizing until 2014, when Matt Damon was attached. 

Now, it looks as though »

Paramount boards Alexander Payne’s ‘Downsizing’ starring Matt Damon

5 October 2015 4:57 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Downsizing will begin production next spring.

Paramount Pictures has struck a deal to produce and distribute worldwide Alexander Payne’s Downsizing, set to begin production next spring with Matt Damon and Reese Witherspoon starring.

Written by Payne with his Sideways collaborator Jim Taylor, Downsizing tells the story of an Omaha man who undergoes a process that reduces people to a fraction of their normal size and moves to one of the many communities of small people sprouting up around the world.

The film will be produced by Payne and Mark Johnson and is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Brad Grey, chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures, which previously worked with Payne on Nebraska and Election, said: “Alexander will once again bring to audiences a uniquely original film, one that showcases his tremendous skill as a storyteller. We are absolutely thrilled to be working with him again.”

Paramount acquires Alexander Payne’s new film Downsizing

3 October 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paramount Pictures has closed a deal to purchase the new film from acclaimed director Alexander Payne (Sideways, Nebraska), entitled Downsizing.

Downsizing will see Payne return to Nebraska for the film, which stars Matt Damon (The Martian) and Reese Witherspoon (Wild), and will mark the third production between the filmmaker and Paramount.

The film tells the story of “an Omaha man who joins the throngs of people undergoing a new process that reduces them to a tiny fraction of their size…and then moves in to one of the many communities of small people that are sprouting up around the world”

Payne will re-team with his regular writing partner Jim Taylor for the film, having worked together on Sideways, About Schmidt and Election, the latter of which also starred Witherspoon.

The studio is aiming for production to start next Spring, with a release around the final months of 2017.

Alexander Payne's Downsizing Set Up At Paramount

3 October 2015 11:29 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

In development for several years already, Alexander Payne is finally ready to push ahead with sci-fi comedy Downsizing, with Nebraska distributors Paramount stepping in to handle the film.Payne wrote the script with Sideways partner Jim Taylor, and the plot will see an Omaha man (Matt Damon) low on money who decides that life would be a lot cheaper and easier if he underwent a procedure to shrink himself. Travelling through life as a tiny person, he meets a woman (Reese Witherspoon). In a previous incarnation, the film also boasted Sacha Baron Cohen and Paul Giamatti in the cast, but the Hollywood Reporter’s story on the new development doesn’t mention them, so we’ll assume for now they’re no longer aboard, but could always make new deals. While the idea of an Alexander Payne VFX film does somewhat boggle our minds, we’re excited to see what he’ll do with technology. »

Interview: Actor Thomas Haden Church is Character Driven in ‘Max’

25 June 2015 9:02 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Thomas Haden Church has the recognizable name, and a long career of character roles in comedy and drama. His laid-back persona gets a bit more intense as a conflicted father in the new film “Max,” about a military dog who comes home to an uncertain future with a grieving family.

What may look like a standard family film is actually an exploration of the mourning and the healing process, and the waste of war. Church is Ray Wincott, an early 1990s “Desert Storm” veteran, who sees his son Kyle (Robbie Arnell) follow in his Marine Corp footsteps to the Afghanistan conflict. One of the Kyle’s duties is to care for Max, a German Shepard who sniffs out bombs in the region. When Kyle is killed in action, Max is sent back to the Wincott family to get over his companion’s demise, but will only respond to Ray’s other son, »

Warner Bros. Pictures has released the new video of Blake Shelton’s version of “Forever Young” from the Max movie soundtrack. Check it out, along with the new TV spot, below.

A precision-trained military dog, Max serves on the frontlines in Afghanistan alongside his handler, U.S. Marine Kyle Wincott. But when things go terribly wrong on maneuvers, Kyle is mortally wounded and Max, traumatized by the loss of his best friend, is unable to remain in service.
