A Conversation With Composer Ilan Eshkeri On His Shaun The Sheep Movie Score

12 August 2015 7:54 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with The Farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it’s up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to Mossy Bottom Farm.

Shaun The Sheep Movie powers through visual puns, sight gags and rollicking plot twists to arrive at a hard-won realization: there’s no place like home.

As there is no dialogue from any of the characters, the music plays such an important role in the movie. That’s where the fantastic, colorful score from composer Ilan Eshkeri comes in.

Complete with the Shaun the Sheep theme, lively cues, and songs, including the award-friendly “Feels Like Summer” song, Eshkeri score is a wonderful soundtrack for a very funny film.

Eshkeri’s recent film work includes Still Alice, »

Matthew Vaughn Hopes to Break His Sequel Rule and Direct 'Kingsman 2'

11 June 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Matthew Vaughn has directed entries in franchises before (X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass), but he's never directed a sequel to one of his own movies before. Even his directorial debut Layer Cake, which we recently learned would get a sequel, will have its follow-up directed by somebody else. But apparently that may change with Kingsman: The Secret Service. While doing a video interview for this week's Blu-ray and DVD release of Kingsman, Vaughn was asked a number of questions about a Kingsman 2 and as it turns out, the actual interview was interrupting him writing the screenplay for Kingsman 2. There is a catch, though. Vaughn only wants to make the movie if the screenplay is good enough. So while all of his answers are encouraging for fans who would love...

Jason Statham Returns To The Gangster Flick!

2 June 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Jason Statham is returning to the genre that first put him on our radar, with a direct sequel to Layer Cake! The movie, adapted from the book Viva La Madness, follows on straight from the events of the 2004 film, and Statham is hoping to get the cameras rolling on it next year. Statham will produce as well as star, and he'll be playing an unnamed drug-dealing hero from the book. Once again Jj Connolly, the author of Layer Cake and Viva La Madness, will be adapting his own work, so expect more of the same dark sense of humour and East London violence. No word on what they intend to do with Daniel Craig's character, although not being familiar with the book, I can't even tell you if he's relevant to the plot. Craig won't be returning, nor will Matthew Vaughan, but I for one am pretty stoked to »

Jason Statham To Replace Daniel Craig in 'Layer Cake' Sequel

1 June 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

2004's Layer Cake is a smart, sexy, darkly funny story about a drug dealer whose only way out of the criminal lifestyle means pulling off two very different final assignments. Not only did it give the world a great movie, but it was also a sort of center stage introduction to star Daniel Craig and director Matthew Vaughn. Now, over a decade later, Layer Cake is getting a sequel, only don't expect it to be directed by Vaughn or to star Daniel Craig. After talking about it for a few years, Jason Statham has confirmed he's going to star and produce Viva La Madness. Though the main faces in front of and behind the camera are changing, there is one very important figure who isn't. Jj Connolly wrote Layer Cake based on his own book and he'll be returning to do the...

Jason Statham says Layer Cake sequel Viva La Madness will shoot next year

30 May 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2013, it was revealed that Jason Statham had signed on to replace Daniel Craig in Viva La Madness, a sequel to director Matthew Vaughn’s 2004 film Layer Cake. Since then, things have fallen quiet on the project, but now the Stath has provided an update to Digital Spy, stating that the follow-up will shoot next year.

Jj Connelly’s written a great book called Viva La Madness, and we’re taking that book and doing something great with it. He’s such a talented writer… the book was incredible. I loved Layer Cake and this is [if anything] better. The chance to work with someone of that calibre, do something back home, it’s the most exciting thing on my plate… We’re doing it next year, and it’s full steam ahead. We’re putting all the finance together, and we’re off and racing.”

Jason Statham’s Layer Cake Sequel Viva La Madness Shooting Next Year

29 May 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As a huge fan of 2004’s Layer Cake, a terrific crime caper that put director Matthew Vaughn on the map and proved a star-making vehicle for future Bond Daniel Craig, I was admittedly pretty disheartened when it was revealed a few years back that Jason Statham would be toplining sequel Viva La Madness.

Given that neither Vaughn nor Craig are involved, making a sequel didn’t feel right then, and it’s still not exactly a thrilling proposition now, with Statham telling Digital Spy that the project is on track to shoot next year:

“J.J. Connelly’s written a great book called ‘Viva La Madness,’ and we’re taking that book and doing something great with it. He’s such a talented writer. The book was incredible.

Jason Statham Says 'Layer Cake' Sequel 'Viva La Madness' Will Shoot In 2016

You may have forgotten, as I totally did, that a couple of years back it was announced that Jason Statham will star in "Viva La Madness," the sequel to Matthew Vaughn's breakout film, "Layer Cake," which made a star out of Daniel Craig. Not much has been heard about the project since, but according to Statham, it's all systems go. "J.J. Connelly's written a great book called 'Viva La Madness,' and we're taking that book and doing something great with it," the actor told Digital Spy about about the sequel novel, penned by the original author. "He's such a talented writer. The book was incredible. I loved 'Layer Cake' and this is, if anything, better.

Jason Statham confirms Layer Cake sequel is still in the works

A little over ten years ago, director Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kick-ass) brought his directorial debut to the world with Layer Cake. Starring a pre-James Bond Daniel Craig, the film proved to be one of the better gangster flicks of its kind, and paved the way for both director and star to take on bigger projects. Author J.J.

10 Top Tom Hardy Movie Quotes: ‘Dark Knight Rises,’ ‘Inception,’ ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ (Video)

15 May 2015 5:10 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Like fellow outspoken actor Sean Penn, there is almost nothing Tom Hardy could say in a movie that would rival his amazing real life quotes, but we’re still going to give it a shot in honor of “Mad Max: Fury Road.” There were some tough omissions from early Hardy movies such as “Layer Cake,” as well his recent turn on the British series “Peaky Blinders,” but in the end, we were limited to 10 quotes from 10 different movies, not counting our exceptionally quotable top choice. If there’s a line we missed, let us know in the comments section below. »

'Kingsman' Director Negotiating to Direct New 'Flash Gordon' Remake (Or is It a Sequelc)

15 April 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I debated while writing that headline whether or not to use Matthew Vaughn's name or not. Certainly those that read movie blogs on a regular basis will recognize Vaughn's name as the director of Layer Cake, X-Men: First Class and, most recently, the highly successful Kingsman: The Secret Service, but if you don't read about movie news on a daily basis, his name is hardly as recognizable to the general public as say, Christopher Nolan or David Fincher. So, I went with "Kingsman Director" and hopefully that means people will read this first paragraph and start putting two-and-two together. As for the news in the headline, well, let's get to that. THR is reporting Vaughn is in negotiations to direct Flash Gordon, a movie based on the classic comic strip character over at 20th Century Fox. Based on the character created in 1934 by artist Alex Raymond there have been »

Lionsgate U.K. Takes U.K. Rights to Marv Films’ ‘Eddie the Eagle’

16 March 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Lionsgate U.K. has taken U.K. rights to feel-good inspirational movie “Eddie the Eagle,” which Matthew Vaughn’s Marv Films is producing.

The film has just started production in the Alps and moves to the U.K. next month. Lionsgate U.K. plans to release the film in the U.K. in spring 2016; 20th Century Fox will distribute in all other territories worldwide.

The film details the exploits of Michael Edwards, better known as “Eddie the Eagle,” the most famous ski jumper in British history. Edwards won the hearts of sports fans around the world by making a catastrophic showing at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. The film’s portrayal of Edwards’ never-say-die approach to the sport “celebrates the human spirit and resilience in the face of extraordinary odds and challenges.”

Eddie will be played by Taron Egerton, who appeared in Vaughn’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service.” That »
