Framelight ramps up 'Chi-Chian'

27 October 2009 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Production banner Framelight is ramping up. The company has optioned rights to the cult comic "Chi-Chian" and will develop it as a feature.

Framelight also has attached Mark Rosenthal to pen its family adventure "The Secret History of Tom Trueheart."

The fairy tale-tinged "Chi-Chian" is set in a dystopian New York -- the city has lost its independence and become a prefecture of Japan -- and centers on a seemingly ordinary young woman who has been tapped as a heroine and must fight samurais, robots and zombies to protect her loved ones.

The property, which began life as a six-part comic book from the Cuban-American musician Voltaire, spawned a set of digital episodes for Syfy and Syfy.com as well as a role-playing game.

Voltaire, whose full name is Aurelio Voltaire, is an artist and musician who has developed a following for avant-garde storytelling and artistry. Jeffrey Erb and Robert Robinson Jr. »

"Drag Me to Hell" review. Laughs and screams intermingle.

27 May 2009 | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

  "Drag Me to Hell" reviewby Steve Ramos (4/5)   Sam Raimi returns to classic horror with Drag Me To Hell and delivers a midnight masterpiece.   Smack in the middle of 3-D gore and slasher remakes featuring Halloweens Michael Myers and Friday the Thirteenths Jason, director Sam Raimi revisits grind house horror with Drag Me To Hell, a wild, scream out loud, old-fashioned scare featuring a pretty bank manager (Alison Lohman) fighting a curse from a vengeful gypsy. Recent horror hits like My Bloody Valentine 3-D and the Last House on the Left remake rely solely on escalating series of grisly deaths, often at the hands of a madman, to shock moviegoers into a bloody stupor.   Now, some 22 years after the last film in his Evil Dead trilogy, Raimi returns to classic horror and the result is a midnight pulp masterpiece with enough screams and laughs to fill 20 Halloween remakes. As Christine Brown, »

Tim McGraw Teams Up With Sandra Bullock On Film

16 April 2009 8:37 AM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Tim McGraw is one lucky man. He continually finds himself surrounded by beautiful women. He's married to Faith Hill, appeared with Reese Witherspoon in last year's movie Four Christmases and is now set to co-star with Sandra Bullock in a new film based on a true story.

The Blind Side is a movie about a wealthy couple, Sean and Leigh Anne Touhy, who take in a homeless African-American teenager and mentor him. The movie begins shooting in Atlanta later this month and is based on the best-selling book, The Blind Side: Evolution Of The Game, written by Michael Lewis and based on the real-life story of Michael Oher. Oher who inspired the book, is expected to be selected in the first round of this year's NFL draft.

While Tim is a country singer first, his film resume is growing. His films include The Kingdom, Black Cloud, Four Christmases, Friday Night Lights and Flicka. »

'Drag Me to Hell' poster unleashed, Alison Lohman looks unhappy

1 April 2009 6:57 AM, PDT | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

The poster for Sam Raimi's upcoming supernatural thriller Drag Me to Hell has been released and all I can is "Sweet"...though not in its traditional sense.

The film, starring Alison Lohman (Beowulf, Flicka) and Justin Long (He's Just Not That Into You) is about a loan officer who evicts an old lady from her home because She Doesn't Pay Her Mortgage. The old lady, as old ladies tend to do, casts an evil spell on the poor gal and she suddenly finds herself haunted by demons. The catch? They are trying to take her to hell.

C'mon demons, the girl was just doing her job.

Drag Me to Hell will be released on May 29th from Universal. »

Ang Lee Helming Adaptation of Yann Martel's Life of Pi

18 February 2009 2:12 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Not to be confused with Monty Python's Life of Brian, Yann Martel's novel "Life of Pi" is set to be adapted by Taiwanese director Ang Lee. The story follows an Indian boy named Piscine "Pi" Molitor Pate who is the lone survivor of a sunken freighter that winds up sharing a lifeboat with a hyena, an injured zebra, an orangutan and a hungry Bengal tiger. So it's kind of like The Jungle Book and Noah's Ark combined, or at least that's my initial perception. The project is being developed at Fox 2000 and while there are older scripts around, including one by M. Night Shyamalan, Lee will find and hire a new writer to adapt. Fox producer Gil Netter, who has a very sketchy track record with films like Phone Booth, Flicka, Eragon, and Marley & Me to his name, is producing. Ang Lee is currently finishing his Taking Woodstock film, »

Flicka 2 Galloping Toward Theaters

15 February 2009 1:00 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

I didn't remember 2006's Flicka as being all that well-liked, or well-remembered, or even financially successful (it made $21 million worldwide). But apparently a girl and her horse can't be beat. Production Weekly is reporting that Flicka 2 will begin shooting in Vancouver in April. There's no indication of who will be in it, or whether the stars of the original-- Tim McGraw, Alison Lohman and Maria Bello-- will return. Michael Damian will be replacing Michael Mayer as director, so if I were to guess, I wouldn't count on the original cast returning. Are there any die-hard Flicka fans out there thrilled to see another? Or is this one of those sequels that, despite what anyone says, is just destined to go straight-to-dvd? »

Vanity Fair's Hollywood ~ Episode 10 (2004)

2 February 2009 5:20 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Missed previous episodes? The Hollywood Historian in me was busy last year. See: 1995 , 1996, 1997, 1998 , 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003.

With the annual Vanity Fair "Hollywood" issue about to debut for 2009 -- I'm guessing we see the new cover in less than two weeks (Update: the new cover has been leaked and Vanity Fair has chucked their traditional photo shoot *sniffle* for the millionth magazine cover featuring President Obama), let's briefly return to our Vanity Fair retrospectives. "Send in the Gowns" was the title of 2004's photo shoot and they returned to the first year's game plan of glamour girls. The cover was more crowded though, bringing us an unlucky 13. But who was this cover unlucky for?

Maybe all of them, with the exception of Maggie Gyllenhaal (hurrah) and Hilary Swank (known affectionately around these parts as Beelzebub), who was just 11 months away from her second Oscar. Vanity Fair had gotten less daring in their cover »
