‘Grace And Frankie’ Emmy-Nominated Production Designer Devorah Herbert Brings Warmth To Odd Couple Comedy

21 August 2017 4:05 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Crew Call Podcast: In a very short time in Hollywood, production designer Devorah Herbert has left an everlasting visual impression in film and television. She brought a gritty, South Central L.A. authenticity to David Ayer’s crime dramas such as End Of Watch and Harsh Times, and she boldly established a red palette in the pilot of ABC’s Revenge — emphasized so greatly during its murder-on-the-beach wedding scene — a motif that continued throughout the series’ first… »

‘Bright’ Star Noomi Rapace Says David Ayer Has Created a ‘Complete New Universe’ That Feels Like ‘Training Day’

21 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For his first post-“Suicide Squad” offering, director David Ayer is returning to some familiar stomping grounds — with a twist. The director’s wild new Netflix feature “Bright” hues close to Ayer’s earlier films about hardened cops and criminals duking it out on the mean streets of Los Angeles, with the addition of orcs, fairies, and elves. For Ayer, it seems that the key has been tapping into his creativity and the tough stuff that made films like “Training Day” and “End of Watch” work, at least that what his leading lady Noomi Rapace thinks, and she couldn’t be more excited about the fantastic (literally) doors the new film opened for her.

“It’s a complete new universe,” the actress said in a recent interview with IndieWire. “I read the script and I was like, ‘Oh my days, this is…I don’t…I’ve never seen this, »

Bright Trailer: Netflix's $100 Million Blockbuster Shines

21 July 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Humans, Orcs, Elves... everybody is just trying to get along in Netflix's $100 million original film Bright, based on the Max Landis script that caused something of a bidding war when it was passed around. The film about "racial" tension in La is directed by David Ayer, no stranger to these kinds of stories, having tackled similar themes successfully in End of Watch and Harsh Times. Synopsis: Set in a world where mystical creatures live side by side with humans. A human cop is forced to work with an Orc to find a weapon everyone is prepared to kill for. Bright stars Will Smith and Joel Edgerton along with Noomi Rapace (though you wouldn't know it based on Netflix's marketing, which completely omits the actress'...

Netflix let David Ayer do whatever he wanted on Bright (Comic Con 2017)

20 July 2017 6:47 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

It's likely that by now you've seen the latest trailer for Bright, the weird-as-hell-looking urban crime fantasy horror movie that is, if nothing else, unique-looking. (I'm calling it Harsh Times meets Hellboy 2, myself.) Said trailer was shown to a curious Hall H crowd that wasn't quite sure what to make of the film. And maybe that's not a bad thing? As awesome as... Read More »

‘Scarface’: Why the Studio Should Give Up On This Troubled Remake

13 July 2017 6:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With the recent news that David Ayer has dropped out of the latest attempt to remake “Scarface,” IndieWire’s editors traded emails on whether or not this troubled project is worth the effort at all. 

Anne Thompson: Over the past decade, the studios have become accustomed to booking release dates before they even have a final script. This creates a rushed urgency to move forward, even when a movie is far from ready. Catherine Hardwicke, after the first “Twilight” had soared to the highest opening ever for a female filmmaker, wasn’t immediately ready to throw herself back into the fray with the second “Twilight.” She wanted more time to nurture the follow-up. So Summit Entertainment left her behind. And the end result a year later, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” directed by Chris Weitz, was arguably the weakest of the franchise.

Examples abound, but clearly Universal is in a »

Suicide Squad 2 Targets The Shallows Director Jaume Collet-Serra

11 July 2017 6:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few months after rumors of Mel Gibson directing Suicide Squad 2 surfaced, it seems the studio has set their sights on another filmmaker. Jaume Collet-Serra, who directed Unknown and Run All Night for Warner Bros., is reportedly the studio's top choice to take the helm on this sequel. Warner Bros. reportedly looked at a number of directors, including Mel Gibson, for this coveted directorial gig, but sources claim the studio is focused on putting Jaume Collet-Serra in the director's chair for this superhero sequel.

Deadline broke the news of Jaume Collet-Serra's potential involvement today, which comes just four months after the studio locked in a new Suicide Squad 2 writer, with Adam Cozad (The Legend of Tarzan) coming aboard to write the screenplay. Original Suicide Squad director David Ayer revealed last summer, just days after the first movie hit theaters, that he was already working on the story for the sequel. »

Christian Bale brings his A-list talents to “The Promise”

19 April 2017 6:55 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Given the right role, it’s distinctly possible that there’s nobody better in the business than Christian Bale. He can just own the screen and dominate a film. There’s a reason why he’s an Academy Award winner and slowly becoming someone that voters seem to look for a reason to cite. Oscar aside, he’s simply a throwback method style actor and that’s compelling for audience members. This week, he co-stars in The Promise, while also being rumored as the choice of filmmaker Adam McKay to play Dick Cheney in a biopic set for 2018. Even as a big time A-lister, the sky remains the limit for Bale. The film is a period piece, centered on a love triangle during the final days of the Ottoman Empire. Michael (Oscar Isaac), a rather brilliant medical student, is wooing the beautiful and highly sophisticated Ana (Charlotte Le Bon), but »
