Martin Scorsese and Ben Wheatley on 'Free Fire,' Gunfights and Crime Flicks

24 April 2017 9:04 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Stop us if you've heard this one before: A group of criminals meet up for a gun deal. It goes bad – very bad. And the rest of the story, you ask? "Doesn't matter!" Martin Scorsese exclaims, laughing. "You don't need it. We're beyond that now." The burly, bearded man sitting next to him – British director Ben Wheatley – wholeheartedly agrees. "There's only, like, 12 characters in this movie anyway," he adds. "There are no twists, because it's either going to be that one or that one or that one. So what's the point? »

Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro Could Team Up for ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’

22 April 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One would have a difficult time disputing the notion that Martin Scorsese’s two most notable onscreen collaborators are Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio. The three of them have made any number of classics together — “Taxi Driver,” “Raging Bull,” “Goodfellas,” “Gangs of New York,” “The Departed,” “The Wolf of Wall Street” — but, to date, the two leading men have never worked with ol’ Marty on the same picture together. (They did come close once, though.) Deadline reports that that could soon change with an adaptation of David Grann’s “Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI.”

Killers of the Flower Moon May Reunite DiCaprio, De Niro and Scorsese

21 April 2017 5:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hollywood heavyweights Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio are possibly teaming up to make the highly-anticipated adaptation Killers Of the Flower Moon, based on the book by David Grann which will be published this week by Doubleday. The book was first picked up for a whopping $5 million by Imperative Entertainment last year, after a bidding war emerged, with Leonardo DiCaprio originally set to produce alongside J.J. Abrams, but it doesn't appear that Abrams is involved anymore. Our first report revealed that Paramount had the top bid at the time with $2 million, but they were eventually beat out by Imperative Entertainment's $5 million bid.

Deadline reports that no deals are in place with Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert DeNiro or Martin Scorsese, but all three parties are "seriously considering" taking on the project. Oscar-winning screenwriter Eric Roth (Forrest Gump) wrote the screenplay adaptation based on David Grann's book, with Imperative Entertainment »

Tony Sokol Apr 24, 2017

As well as the upcoming The Irishman, Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro are circling another project together...

David Grann's true-crime novel Killers Of The Flower Moon: The Osage Murders And The Birth Of The FBI may be adapted in a film that would bring together Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. Variations on this teaming have, of course, brought us classic movies like Mean Streets, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, Gangs Of New York, New York, New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island, The Wolf Of Wall Street and the upcoming The Devil In The White City.

Imperative Entertainment bought the film rights to Killers Of The Flower Moon: The Osage Murders And The Birth Of The FBI for $5 million last year and want an A-list cast.

Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio & Robert De Niro May Reteam For ‘Killers Of The Flower Moon’

21 April 2017 4:07 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are obviously a little attached at the hip. They’ve made five movies together — “Gangs of New York,“ “The Aviator,” “The Departed,” “Shutter Island” and “The Wolf Of Wall Street” and the short, “The Audition” — but it feels like any time a Scorsese project is announced, DiCaprio’s name is not far behind.

12 Movies to Watch After You See ‘Free Fire’

21 April 2017 11:26 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We recommend titles that influenced Ben Wheatley and more.

With his sixth feature, Ben Wheatley finally has a wide release in America. Free Fire might be his most accessible movie yet, consisting a single location and pretty much just one long action sequence. It’s basically a 90-minute third act without the first two acts getting in the way. Also it features Oscar winner Brie Larson, and who doesn’t like watching her act?

If you like what you see, then you’ll want to discover Wheatley’s other work, starting with the small crime film Down Terrace, which kicked off his career. I also recommend the following dozen movies, some of which are direct influences on Wheatley, others being similar kinds of films, and then just whatever else I had determined worthy.

The Truce Hurts (1948)

Ben Wheatley loves Tom and Jerry cartoons and has cited them as an influence on his latest movie. I »

Michael Ballhaus (1935-2017)

13 April 2017 3:24 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Nathaniel R

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of German cinematographer Michael Ballhaus. The 81 year old artist was a crucial figure in making me the movie maniac that I am today. Michelle Pfeiffer on the piano top in The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989) -- hell the entire movie -- being a defining image in my life, after which I went from enthusiastic regular moviegoer to celluloid-devouring obsessive.

Ballhaus had retired after Martin Scorsese's The Departed (2006) making only one German movie in the last decade of his life and we had hoped each year that he'd be announced as an Honorary Oscar recipient. His three scant nominations -- The Fabulous Baker Boys, Broadcast News, and Gangs of New York -- do no justice to his long and gorgeous career. That's because they don't feel representative of his career as a whole and because, »

Here’s Why Cinematographer Michael Ballhaus Was Brilliant: 13 Images That Capture His Style

13 April 2017 12:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The late cinematographer Michael Ballhaus didn’t grow up watching movies. His parents were stage actors, and he first fell in love with the art of performance. And as a cinematographer, one of his many gifts was the way he captures actors’ faces and how his camera found its rhythm with their movements and emotions.

Read More: Martin Scorsese Remembers His Cinematographer Michael Ballhaus: ‘He Changed My Way Of Thinking’

He fell in love with movies at age 20 when he visited the set of Max Ophuls’ “Lola Montes.” Ballhaus spent 10 days on the circus set and became entranced by the period style and the master director’s virtuoso swirling camera movement. Not until Ballhaus’ later Hollywood work, on films like “The Age of Innocence” or “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” did he get the chance to work on lavish sets and play with all the toys of prestige filmmaking.

Cinematographer who brought dynamism to the films of Scorsese and Fassbinder

The cinematographer Michael Ballhaus, who has died aged 81, helped to realise the work of two visionaries: Rainer Werner Fassbinder, with whom he made 15 films, and Martin Scorsese, for whom he shot seven, including the gruesome gangster drama Goodfellas (1990), which tested this exceedingly gentle man’s tolerance of violence. “I wouldn’t have done this movie with another director,” he said in 2010. “These discussions – whether there is enough brain in the blood – are so absurd that you almost want to throw up.” Their other pictures together included the lustrous Edith Wharton adaptation The Age of Innocence (1993), the grand-and-grubby period piece Gangs of New York (2002) and the thriller The Departed (2006), which won the best picture Oscar.

Much of the visual dynamism associated with Fassbinder and Scorsese must be credited also to Ballhaus. There are the complicated but elegant compositions in Fassbinder, »

13 April 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Cinematographer Michael Ballhaus, who died Tuesday at the age of 81, is remembered fondly by Martin Scorsese as “a great artist” who “gave me back my sense of excitement in making movies,” Martin Scorsese said of the man who lensed “Goodfellas” and “Gangs of New York.”

For over two decades, the Scorsese and Ballhaus “had a real creative partnership, and a very close and enduring friendship,” Scorsese said in a statement. “By the time we met, he had already made film history with Rainer Werner Fassbinder, and I revered him. He was a lovely human being, and he always had a warm smile for even the toughest situations—anyone who knew him will remember his smile. We started working together in the 80s, during a low ebb in my career. And it was Michael who really gave me back my sense of excitement in making movies.”
