Argo screenwriter Chris Terrio to polish Batman vs. Superman script

18 December 2013 11:23 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When Ben Affleck signed on to portray The Dark Knight in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman vs. Superman, there was plenty of talk that his creative input could extend beyond his on screen role and that seems like it could be the case, with Argo screenwriter Chris Terrio signing on to polish David S. Goyer's script for the Man of Steel sequel.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Terrio has been brought in to get the script in shape before filming begins [as] Goyer has been tied up with a number of other DC Comics titles including Sandman." In addition to his Oscar-winning work on Argo, Terrio's other credits include his 2005 directorial debut Heights, along with an episode of Damages.

Batman vs. Superman is set for release on July 17th 2015 with Affleck joined by returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Clark Kent / Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha »

18 December 2013 3:03 PM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

One of the biggest movies coming out in 2015 is the sequel to “Man of Steel.” “Batman Vs. Superman” is positioned to be a big moneymaker for Warner Bros and DC Comics Entertainment. The movie studio has a lot riding on the success of the superhero movie, so they’re bringing in the best of the best to compete with Marvel Studios and “The Avengers.” According to THR, Warner Bros hired screenwriter Chris Terrio to help write the script for “Man of Steel 2.” Terrio is an Academy Award winning screenwriter with credits such as “Heights” and “Argo” under his belt.

Wme Signs Hot ‘Argo’ Scribe Chris Terrio

15 November 2013 10:21 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: Wme has scored a coup, signing Chris Terrio as the screenwriter comes off winning the Oscar for Argo. Terrio had been repped at CAA. While Terrio’s run goes back to writing and directing the 2005 pic Heights, his ascension to A-list scribe has been fairly recent. Ben Affleck has told me that after carving his previous directing vehicles from the ground up, he could not believe his good fortune when handed Terrio’s Argo script. Since then, Terrio has been writing one high-profile project after another. They include: another project for Argo producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov which is untitled but has Paul Greengrass attached to direct; adapting the Nathaniel Philbrick book Bunker Hill as a potential directing vehicle for Affleck; an adaptation of the Harlan Coben bestseller Tell No One for Universal and Focus; and A Foreigner, which Matt Damon might direct. »

Zach Braff’s ‘Wish I Was Here’ Shooting in L.A., Aiming for Sundance

22 August 2013 12:37 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three months after a high-profile Kickstarter campaign funded Zach Braff’s “Wish I Was Here,” the indie drama’s shoot has been among the most active productions in Los Angeles.

“The dailies look great and the plan is to get it ready in time for Sundance,” said Worldview Entertainment topper Christopher Woodrow, whose company is providing financing. “Shooting in L.A. made sense because of the availability of the actors.”

Worldview came on to provide gap financing to “Wish I Was Here” while the month-long Kickstarter campaign — which raised $3.1 million — was in its final week. Besides Braff, cast includes Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Ashley Greene, Jim Parsons and Josh Gad.

Filming began earlier this month and is set to conclude Sept. 6. The film has been shot in Hollywood, east Pasadena, Ladera Heights, downtown Los Angeles and on Leo Carrillo Beach.

The film totaled 12 days of permitted shoots last week, according to the FilmL. »
