I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I can’t figure out why the Purge movies haven’t been more successful. Oh, they’ve done fine financially, particularly thanks to their very low budgets. Election Year reportedly cost only $10 million to produce (and that’s many multiples of the budgets of the first two films), which is pocket change in Hollywood, and has grossed more than $100 million worldwide, and it’s only just opening today in the UK, so it will add to that tally. But they don’t seem to have had much cultural impact, which is odd seeing how this franchise continues to be one of
It has been awhile since director Henry Selick made Coraline, one of the better animated films in years, and he has been looking to move on to a new project. While Disney and Laika have both passed on The Shadow King by Selick, it looks like a famous duo will help the director get his next project made.
According to Variety, Key & Peele are set to help create a new animated feature with Selick that will be called Wendell and Wild. The site adds that the project is in the early stages with the duo and Selick ironing out creative details while looking for a distributor at the moment.
Selick spoke about the project, telling Variety that:
“‘Wendell and Wild’ is a comedy about two scheming demon brothers who must face their arch-nemesis, the demon-dusting nun Sister Helly,
Understood to be in the very early stages, source close to the project claim that Rapace is “in talks” to star as the record-breaking songstress, who tragically passed away from alcohol poisoning in July 2011. She was 27. No word yet on an official title for the new drama, though we imagine it won’t stray too far from the instantly recognizable – and therefore easily marketable – name of the late soul singer.
Despite its critical and commercial success, Kapadia’s biopic was the subject of intense

Screen Daily reports that the film from writer-director Kirsten Sheridan (August Rush) is attempting to negotiate with the in-demand Swede, who has Prometheus 2 on the horizon.
The news comes hot on the heels of Asif Kapadia’s Amy, which became the highest-grossing British documentary of all time earlier this year.
That film came under fire from Winehouse’s family – especially from father Mitch, who is reportedly putting together another film project about his daughter.
According to ScreenDaily, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Prometheus star Noomi Rapace is currently in talks to take the role of Amy Winehouse in a forthcoming biopic. Jim Sheridan‘s daughter Kirsten Sheridan (August Rush) has completed a script which she’ll direct and plans are underway to license the late singer’s music. Unfortunately, there’s no details if this will take a look at a specific time in her all-too-short 27-year

The show is a neo-noir crime thriller covering two serial killer investigations set in two very stylistically contrasting worlds — the vast and desolate lands of America’s declining mid-West, and the thriving and overpopulated streets of the Far East.
The series is centered around Travis Augustine, an American ex-detective who has travelled to the Far East for a cutting-edge, untested medical procedure to cure his cancer. The theory: trauma manifests itself into illness. The cure: delete the memories associated with the trauma. As Travis recounts the memories from a failed all-consuming 10-year serial killer investigation as part of his treatment, copycat crimes start to take place on the streets of an Asian metropolis,

The astronaut died during childbirth, but her infant son was raised in secrecy on Mars. 16 years later, after returning to Earth, the teenage boy (Asa Butterfield) enlists the help of a mission specialist and connects with a young woman he has been communicating with.

It seems as if Broadway is on a movie-adaptation streak, no? Movie based adaptations have won seven of the past fourteen Tony Awards for Best Musical! This season alone will see Honeymoon in Vegas (based on the 1992 film of the same name), musicals based on Oscar-winning films Dr Zhivago (which recently announced its star) and Gigi (for what it's worth, its pre-Broadway engagement stars Vanessa Hudgens), as well as Bull Durham. Down the line we’re still expecting First Wives Club, Amelie, American Psycho, The Bodyguard and Ever After to make it to New York in the near future.
