Kurt Russell on the Little Movies That Brought Him Back to Hollywood and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

3 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With supporting turns in two of summer’s biggest movies — including box office juggernaut “The Fate of the Furious” and the upcoming and much-hyped “Guardians of the Galaxy” sequel — Kurt Russell is back in a very big way. But despite reentering the cultural consciousness with a slew of splashy roles over the past couple of years, Russell never really went away. He just got choosier. That kind of freedom has always marked Russell’s five-decade-long career, one that includes a childhood spent in literal contractual service to Walt Disney; an action-heavy ’80s that saw him star in such classics as “The Thing,” “Escape From New York” and “Big Trouble in Little China”; and a critically acclaimed third act that’s rife with unique choices.

It’s in this third act that Russell has snared roles in the record-busting “Fast and Furious” franchise, Quentin Tarantino’s blood-soaked universe and a handful »

How Kurt Russell Redefined Heroism in ‘Dark Blue,’ An La Riots Story 15 Years Ahead of Its Time

24 April 2017 11:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Kurt Russell stepped into the detective’s uniform for “Dark Blue,” he wasn’t just accepting another movie role. He was taking a stand. He was destroying an image he’d spent two decades building, and turning his back on the American hero audiences had come to recognize at the sight of him.

Becoming a villain sounds kind of heroic, doesn’t it?

It was.

Dark Blue” is one of those low-budget cop dramas you don’t see made at studios anymore. At a reported $15 million, Ron Shelton’s feature couldn’t even make back its budget. First released at an Italian film festival in mid-December 2002, it was dumped in the U.S. during February 2003 for a cumulative worldwide haul of just over $12 million.

Big surprise. Opening out of awards season, the movie chronicled events leading up and through the Los Angeles riots in 1992, depicting a racially divided city »

4 February 2017 10:05 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Trolls director Mike Mitchell is set to direct The Lego Movie 2 over at Warner Bros. Mitchell, who is also the man responsible for the likes of Shrek Forever After and Sky High, will replace  Rob Schrab on the project after he jumped ship due to creative differences.

The film is now in production for a release in 2019 and will follow-on from the 2014 original movie, which went on to gross nearly $470 million around the world from a reported $60 million budget.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who directed the first film are staying on as producers, and wrote the first draft of the screenplay, which Raphael Bob-Waksberg and Matt Fogel rewrote.

Newswire: The Lego Movie sequel has a new director

3 February 2017 11:47 AM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

Solidifying his bona fides as Hollywood’s go-to director for movies about cheerfully singing plastic, Trolls director Mike Mitchell has been selected to direct the second Lego Movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mitchell will be replacing Community alum Rob Schrab, who was attached to the project back in February of 2015.

Mitchell’s past directing credits include Sky High and Deuce Biglow, Male Gigolo, plus animated sequels like Shrek Forever After and Alvin And The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. Despite that spotty (some might say “aggressively shitty”) pedigree, his Trolls was a certifiable, candy-colored hit, managing to sneak some fairly profound ideas about happiness and purpose into what could have been a mercenary commercial for Justin Timberlake music and ugly, pug-nosed dolls.

As a follow-up to one of the biggest animation hits of the last ten years, The Lego Movie sequel has a lot riding on it; former directors Christopher Miller ...

The Lego Movie Sequel Has Now Landed A New Director

3 February 2017 11:42 AM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are far too busy with Han Solo to return to The Lego Movie franchise, and that means a new filmmaker has been sought to take the helm. With Rob Schrab departing the project due to "creative differences," it's now been revealed that Mike Mitchell will take his place. He recently helmed Trolls, a movie which recently grossed a fairly impressive $338 million worldwide.  However, his track record before that is a little spotty. In the animated realm, he's worked on the likes of Shrek Forever After and Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, while Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo and Sky High are among his live-action credits. So, should we be excited or a little worried right now?  Well, The Lego Movie 2 has already gone through a fair few rewrites, with Lord and Miller writing the first draft of the script for the sequel with Raphael Bob-Waksberg taking care of a re-write. »

The Lego Movie Sequel nabs Trolls director Mike Mitchell

3 February 2017 11:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. Animation seems to have settled upon a director for The Lego Movie Sequel after parting ways with their previous choice, Rob Schrab, due to “creative differences.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, Trolls director Mike Mitchell is the studio’s choice to helm the upcoming entry in the so-called Lego cinematic universe and sequel to 2014’s smash hit The Lego Movie

Mitchell’s hiring certainly makes sense, as he delivered a box office and (somewhat) critical success with Trolls for Fox and has been making light and vibrant kid-friendly movies for the past decade between Sky High, Shrek Forever After and Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. The latter two of the aforementioned movies were fairly disappointing, but the former remains an underappreciated gem.

One can’t help but wonder what “creative differences” got in between Schrab and Warner Bros. Schrab seemed like an ideal candidate for the job: he »
