Bob Marley Biopic Planned.

20 August 2010 5:31 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Looks like we might be jammin' soon, mon. According to Deadline, another Bob Marley biopic is in the works. I've never been a huge fan of Marley but I am curious about his life. Although it sounds like a good idea there's one hiccup that could ground this plane before it ever takes off.Deadline has more:Ash’s feature will concentrate on the year Marley spent living in London in 1977. This was a crucial year for Marley. He’d fled Jamaica after an attempt was made on his life; the year ended with him sustaining a soccer injury which eventually triggered full-blown cancer. It was the year of punk rock; in London Marley hung out with the Sex Pistols. It was also the year of his legendary Rainbow Theatre gig. Crucially, he also started an affair with Jamaican beauty queen Cindy Breakspeare, who had just been crowned Miss World. Ash »

Bob Marley Biopic by Jenny Ash

19 August 2010 9:39 PM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

When you have a legend like Bob Marley, then you know that every project about his life will be a success.

At least, that’s what Emmy nominated director Jenny Ash is thinking, since she is developing a new film on the life of legendary reggae singer.

The biopic of legendary Marley will focus on the year when he lived in London, or if you prefer more details:

“1977 was a crucial year for Marley. He’d fled Jamaica after an attempt was made on his life; the year ended with him sustaining a soccer injury which eventually triggered full-blown cancer.

It was the year of punk rock; in London Marley hung out with the Sex Pistols. It was also the year of his legendary Rainbow Theatre gig. Crucially, he also started an affair with Jamaican beauty queen Cindy Breakspeare, who had just been crowned Miss World.

Emmy-Nominated Director Jenny Ash Developing Bob Marley Biopic

18 August 2010 9:46 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Jenny Ash, the UK director who has received an Emmy nomination for her work on the documentary miniseries America – The Story of Us, is developing a biopic on the life of legendary reggae artist Bob Marley.  Deadline reports that the “feature will concentrate on the year Marley spent living in London in 1977. This was a crucial year for Marley. He’d fled Jamaica after an attempt was made on his life; the year ended with him sustaining a soccer injury which eventually triggered full-blown cancer.”  Ash, whose two-hour segment of the 12-part America miniseries covered slavery and the Civil War, also sees the movie as a love triangle between Marley, his wife Rita and Jamaican beauty queen Cindy Breakspeare, whom Ash has spent time with in Jamaica.  I presume the denouement of that story won’t be about college students who love Marley because he shared their love of getting high. »

New Bob Marley Biopic In Development! Will We Finally Get One?

18 August 2010 6:48 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Almost 30 years after his death, we still have yet to see a theatrically-released biopic or documentary based on the life of Robert Nesta “Bob” Marley.

There have been a number of attempts over the last decade or so that either eventually died, or stalled, for one reason or another, and I’ll re-address those in a second.

First, this morning brings news that Emmy Award-winning British director Jenny Ash is developing a feature film that will concentrate on Marley’s 1-year sojourn in London, in 1977 (although he actually spent close to 2 years there in a self-imposed exile, after a near-fatal 1976 assassination attempt) – a important year in Marley’s life, the year he discovered he had the cancer that would eventually kill him. It was also the period when he recorded his great Exodus and Kaya albums – the former producing hit singles, Exodus, Waiting in Vain, Jamming, and One Love. Marley »

Weekend Box Office: 'Salt' Can't Knock Out 'Inception'

26 July 2010 7:03 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

I often curse American TV audience for keeping complete garbage on the air while ignoring ambitious, brilliant fare that has no choice but to slink away after a couple of seasons. It happens so often that it's painful to commit to a great new show, knowing how hard it is for intelligent programming to find a public. Maybe it's just perception, but I feel like moviegoers let me down less frequently than boob tube viewers. On the big screen, sometimes ambition gets rewarded rather than punished. Case in point: Inception, which not only rode the coattails of a great marketing campaign to a big weekend opening, but actually held on to the top spot for a second week in a row, dropping only 30% (rare for a major blockbuster) and edging toward $150 million.

I note that Inception is maybe the most audacious, uncompromising, bewildering movie to ever be budgeted in the nine figures. »

Spies Like Us: 'Salt' Stars and More

22 July 2010 7:02 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Although Salt star Angelina Jolie is the one getting the most photographers' shutters clicking, the movie has a whole team of talented people behind it. It's impossible to overlook her costars Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor's dynamic presences onscreen, or director Phillip Noyce's (Catch a Fire, Rabbit-Proof Fence) touch when it came to frenetic action scenes. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura was also behind the scenes to shepherd Salt from script to screen.

As Salt stomps into theaters, it seems like spies are everywhere, and not just in the movies. Earlier this summer came news that 11 Russian spies were arrested by the feds; neighbors and friends were shocked, although perhaps one of the stories that's gotten the most mileage is about the sexual proclivities of one of the younger spies, Anna Chapman, whose photos have been making the rounds.

In any case, for a few days in D.C. »

Phillip Noyce Adds a Dash of "Salt"

22 July 2010 12:49 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Following a screening of "Salt" at the L.A. County Museum of Art, Phillip Noyce recounted how, as the son of a former instructor for Australia's covert ops team Zed Special Force, he was inspired to spy on people on his way home from school in Griffith, New South Wales. Strangely enough, he's doing something similar today -- only with $100 million at his discretion and Angelina Jolie to do his bidding as a CIA agent capable of turning an office chair and cleaning chemicals into a blowtorch and diving out of the way of subway cars while on the run from co-workers who suspect she's working with the Russians.

As Lacma chief programmer Ian Birnie acknowledged in his introduction for "Salt," "We've never shown a movie that's been advertised on the side of a bus," but Noyce is the rare director who can straddle the line between high art and high fun. »

Exclusive: Salt Director Phillip Noyce

16 July 2010 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

When it comes to the political thriller, there are few directors who have done more for redefining the movie genre in the last twenty years than Australia's Phillip Noyce. Following his thriller Dead Calm in 1989, which introduced many to Nicole Kidman, Noyce directed a pair of Tom Clancy adaptations, Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger , two movies that quickly put him on Hollywood's radar. In recent years, Noyce has been directing smaller independent projects but ones that maintained his interest in espionage and political conspiracy, whether it was the Vietnam-based The Quiet American , starring Michael Caine and Brendan Fraser, or his most recent film, Catch a Fire , about South African rebel Patrick Chamusso. Now the director has been reteamed with Angelina »

Angelina Jolie Makes Two Escapes in New 'Salt' Clips

8 July 2010 2:48 AM, PDT | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Angelina Jolie makes two great escapes from capture in two brand new clips of "Salt". In one clip from Yahoo! Movies, her Evelyn Salt character greets a CIA tactical team with a ball of fire she makes using common household items when she is boxed in an interrogation room after she is accused of being a Russian spy.

Another clip, which comes out courtesy of MySpace's Trailer Park, Evelyn is trying to make her escape from the Lapd. Cuffed inside a moving car and sandwiched between two men, the CIA officer is quick to make her move to take over the control of the car. When she is seemed to be cornered, she pushes the car to jump a flyover.

"Salt" is a contemporary action thriller movie directed by "Catch a Fire" helmer Phillip Noyce. It revolves around Evelyn Salt, a CIA officer who swore an oath to duty, honor and country. »

First Clip from Angelina Jolie's Salt

8 July 2010 2:37 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

The first non-trailer clip from Angelina Jolie's new movie, Salt, is now online and it shows just how resourceful her character, CIA agent Evelyn Salt, really is. Directed by Phillip Noyce (Catch a Fire), the movie follows Salt as she is hunted by her own agency after being accused of being a Russian sleeper agent bent on assassinating the president. In this clip, Salt has just been "outed" and decides to run rather than try to explain herself, using whatever items are at her disposal to stop the highly-trained and heavily-armed agents from bringing her in.

What Happened To All Those Bob Marley Films That Were Once Planned?

20 June 2010 12:16 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Almost 30 years after his death, we still have yet to see a theatrically-released biopic or documentary based on the life of Robert Nesta “Bob” Marley.

There have been a number of attempts over that last 11 years that either eventually died, or stalled, for one reason or another. So, what happened to all of them?

Let’s take a look shall we…?

First, there was the 1999 Warner Bros. project which was to be based on Timothy White’s 1998 novel Catch A fire: The Life of Bob Marley; the film was to star Bob Marley’s son Rohan (as Bob) and Lauryn Hill (as Rita Marley), but nothing ever materialized.

7 years later, in 2006, Jamie Foxx (of all people) was said to be starring as Bob Marley in a biopic that was to be directed by French-Algerian filmmaker Rachid Bouchareb, which was reportedly conceived by Rita Marley. As an aside, long-time readers »

First Salt TV Spot

18 June 2010 6:30 AM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Below we have the first ever TV spot for Angelina Jolie’s next film Salt.

As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt (Jolie) swore an oath to duty, honor and country. Her loyalty will be tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture. Salt’s efforts to prove her innocence only serve to cast doubt on her motives, as the hunt to uncover the truth behind her identity continues and the question remains: “Who is Salt?”

Salt, directed by Phillip Noyce (Catch a Fire)from script by Kurt Wimmer and Brian Helgeland, co-stars Liev Schreiber (Defiance, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) as Winter, her ally and supervisor in the CIA’s Russia office, and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Children of Men, American Gangster) as Peabody, a counterintelligence officer who tries to take her down. »

A Prophet

Opens: February 12th 2010

Cast: Tahar Rahim, Niels Arestrup, Adel Bencherif, Hichem Yacoubi, Reda Kateb

Director: Jacques Audiard

Summary: Sent to prison, Malik El Djebena falls under the sway of a group of Corsicans who enforce their rule in the prison. As the 'missions' go by, he toughens himself and wins their confidence but uses his intelligence to discreetly develop his own network.

Analysis: Finally scoring a limited release in the Us in February, Jacques Audiard's violent and hard-edged prison drama won the Grand Prix at Cannes, scored Best Film at the London Film Festival, and is already the hotly tipped favourite to take the Oscar for Best Foreign Film late next month.

Reviews have been stellar around the world for the film which quickly became the most universally admired entry in the often hotly contentious first week of Cannes back in May. From a breakout performance by Tahar Rahim, »
