Netflix Cooking Up Rival Panama Papers Movie

14 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As is often the case among studios, a landmark event in real life often spawns multiple movies, and one need only look at Patriots Day and Boston Strong for evidence of that. The latest issue to receive the Hollywood spotlight is the Panama Papers, a massive data leak that exposed the ways in which the one percent of the one percent exploit legal loopholes and offshore accounts to avoid taxation.

It’s already caught the attention of Steven Soderbergh, who continues to postpone his self-imposed retire from the film world – heck, the filmmaker also has star-studded Nascar thriller Logan Lucky simmering in development.

Now, Netflix’s budding content studio has snapped up the exclusive rights to The Panama Papers: Breaking the Story of How the World’s Rich and Powerful Hide Their Money, the non-fiction page-turner by Frederik Obermaier and Bastian Obermayer that recently hit store shelves.

More concept art from the Blade Runner sequel

18 July 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the weekend we brought you a couple of pieces of concept art from the upcoming Blade Runner sequel [see here], and now we have another look at the neon-soaked Los Angeles streets…

“I’ve always been attracted to science-fiction films with strong visual signatures that lead us into unique parallel worlds and the original Blade Runner is by far the best of all time,” states director Denis Villeneuve. “Ridley Scott had the genius to blend science-fiction and film noir to create this unique exploration of human condition. The new Blade Runner is an extension of the first movie a few decades later.”

Blade Runner 2 is set for release on October 6th 2017, with a cast that includes the returning Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard, alongside Ryan Gosling (The Nice Guys), Robin Wright (House of Cards), Carla Juri (Morris From America), Ana de Armas (Knock Knock), Dave Bautista (Spectre), Mackenzie Davis (The Martian »

Oscar Isaac joins Mark Rylance in Steven Spielberg’s The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara

17 July 2016 5:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While 2015 marked a breakout year for Oscar Isaac, this year has been a rather quiet one for the actor (as far as movie releases go), with the exception of his villainous appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse. But with a slate of big films, which now includes Steven Spielberg’s The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, in the works, 2017 and beyond are looking rather ambitious.

As Variety reports, Isaac has just been confirmed to join Mark Rylance in Spielberg’s forthcoming religious drama The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara. The story follows a young Jewish boy living in Bologna, Italy in 1858, who was taken from his family by force and later raised as a Christian. The struggle to free him becomes wrapped in a larger political struggle between national governments and the Papacy. Isaac, who’s role is not yet known, will star opposite Rylance, who’s set to play the role of Pope Pius IX. »

Oscar Isaac To Star Opposite Mark Rylance In Steven Spielberg Thriller The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Montara

15 July 2016 1:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Variety is reporting The Force Awakens and Ex Machina star Oscar Isaac has inked a deal to join The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Montara, where he will be starring opposite Mark Rylance of The Bfg.

From Giant Country to a pulsing Italian thriller, it’s understood Rylance will reteam with Steven Spielberg on the project, itself a big-screen rendition of David Kertzer’s eponymous novel. Pulling from his regular pool of talent, Spielberg’s adaptation will be penned by Tony Kushner, who worked with the illustrious director across both Lincoln and Munich.

When it comes to Oscar Isaac’s casting, Variety didn’t disclose which role the actor has landed, but it is refreshing that Isaac is pursuing intriguing projects – Edgardo Montara, not to mention Alex Garland’s Annihilation – as a tonic to the blockbuster fare of the Star Wars universe.

First published in ’97, The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Montara recounts the »

Star Wars star Oscar Isaac is in negotiations to star opposite Mark Rylance in The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara for Amblin Entertainment. Steven Spielberg is putting together the true-life religious drama to tackle after he wraps the sci-fi thriller Ready Player One. Tony Kushner, who worked on Spielberg’s Lincoln and Munich, wrote the script adapting the David Kertzer novel, which has been in development with the filmmaker since 2008. The true story centers on a 6-year-old Jewish boy in Bologna, Italy, in 1858 who was seized by the police and removed from his parents' home. He

Forget The Bfg, Spielberg ain’t past it yet…

9 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on what the future holds for Steven Spielberg following the box office disappointment of The Bfg

This week, The Bfg joined this year’s list of ‘illustrious’ flops, at least in the Us where it tanked hard as it released off the back of Indepedence Day: Resurgence and the much more successful Finding Dory. That puts it in the same house as The Huntsman’s Winter War, Gods of Egypt & Zoolander 2. A Steven Spielberg movie. Based on a legendary children’s book by Roald Dahl. This can’t be right, surely? Well for whatever reason, nobody wanted to smell what The Bfg was cooking, and almost immediately commentators and sites decried this box office failure as the metaphorical ‘death of Spielberg’, suggesting the master of modern cinema has lost his magic touch with the takings and, moreover, has lost that special ingredient which made him arguably the »

Ricky Gervais Doesn't 'Give a F*ck' If Hollywood Can't Take a Joke

25 April 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

For viewers with an appetite for a fresh helping of Ricky Gervais's comedic signature dish -- sending a hapless, hubris-ridden character down an ever deepening hole of lies, schemes, and increasing anxiety-provoking repercussions -- the comic's new Netflix original film "Special Correspondents" is the banquet you've been waiting for.

That's because the stakes are raised far beyond the cubicle politics of the original BBC version of "The Office" of the ego-driven showbiz inanities of HBO's "Extras": "Special Correspondents," written and directed by Gervais, casts him as a hapless radio engineer teamed with a hard-driving but difficult-to-work-with journalist (Eric Bana) to cover a conflict in Ecuador who, after missing their flight, conspire to convincingly fabricate their reports from the war zone in an effort to avoid getting fired.

But their dispatches only inflame tensions in the real world, prompt them to fake their own kidnapping by mysterious guerrilla forces, »

Discover The Tactile Cinema Of Steven Spielberg In This 11-Minute Video Essay

13 April 2016 1:25 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are typically two ways of analyzing a Steven Spielberg film. At least, this is what Vimeo user Ken Provencher argues in his newest video essay, “The Spielberg Touchscreen.” Similar thematic interests, with recurring motifs like parent-child relationships, suburban culture, and important events in American-Jewish history play heavily in each of his films. But through this framework, there are two separate filmmakers that come into play: the escapist, the man who directed blockbusters like the “Indiana Jones” franchise, “E.T.,” “War of the Worlds” and this summer’s “The Bfg,” and the moralist, the man who conquers awards fields with sweeping dramas like “Saving Private Ryan,” “Munich,” “Lincoln” and this past fall’s “Bridge of Spies.” But beyond Spielberg’s name, these two sides rarely overlap — even if they’re both very distinctly associated with the veteran filmmaker.

Mark Rylance Joins The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Mortara For Steven Spielberg

12 April 2016 2:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Steven Spielberg is heading into an incredibly busy streak, and he’s taking fellow Academy Award winner Mark Rylance with him. Having cast the actor in 2015’s Bridge Of Spies, to great acclaim, Spielberg then found a spot for him in his forthcoming rendition of Roald Dahl’s The Bfg, and has now confirmed that this fledgling creative partnership will continue with The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Mortara.

Based on the 1997 book by Pulitzer Prize winner David Kertzer, and adapted for the screen by Tony Kushner (Lincoln, Munich, Angels In America), The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Mortara is set in Italy, in 1858, and tells a story of religious and social intrigue that would have ramifications far beyond the community in which it begins.

Here’s the full plot summary:

“Bologna: nightfall, June 1858. A knock sounds at the door of the Jewish merchant Momolo Mortara. Two officers of the Inquisition bust inside »
