The pic stars Viggo Mortensen and Reda Kateb and also features a score from Nick Cave and Warren Ellis (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), which may actually be reason enough for many people to check it out. Here's the official synopsis: Algeria, 1954. While the rebellion rumbles in the valley, two very different men thrown together by a world in turmoil are forced to flee across the Atlas mountains. In the midst of an icy winter, Daru, a reclusive teacher, has to escort Mohamed, a villager accused of murder. Pursued by horsemen seeking summary justice and vengeful settlers, the two men decide to confront the unknown. Together, they fight to gain their freedom. Along with the trailer I also »

Andrew Dominik the Writing the Screenplay Justin Lin's 'Shaolin Temple' Remake

23 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Sometimes I forget Andrew Dominik (Killing Them Softly, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) not only directs, but writes his films and now he's preparing to write a script for someone else and it's hardly one you'd expect. Deadline is reporting Dominik will pen the screenplay for a 3D remake of the 1982 Jet Li starrer The Shaolin Temple, with Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6) set to direct. The film tells the story of a slave worker who escapes from the cruel retainers of the emperor of the Tang dynasty. He seeks asylum at the Shaolin Temple and enters the monkhood and trains with the monks. His motivation, however, is far from saintly having promised to use the skill he learns for defense only, he seeks revenge on the man that murdered his father. When the project was announced back in 2014, Perfect Storm Entertainment, CEO Troy Craig Poon, »

'Killing Them Softly' Director to Write 'Shaolin Temple' Remake

22 August 2014 4:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Filmmaker Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly) has signed on to write the screenplay for the Shaolin Temple remake, which has Justin Lin attached to direct.

The original Shaolin Temple, which was released in 1982, marked the feature film debut of Jet Li. The story is set between the Sui Dynasty and the Tang Dynasty, centering on the son of a Tang emperor slave worker who escapes to the temple to learn kung fu, so he can get revenge on the General who betrayed the emperor. The project was first announced back in January, with Perfect Storm Entertainment and Beijing Enlight Pictures backing the 3D project which will likely cost more than $100 million.

After writing and directing Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Killing Them Softly, this will be the first project that Andrew Dominik will only write and not direct. »

Andrew Dominik Writing 'Shaolin Temple' 3D Remake for Justin Lin

22 August 2014 3:04 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

In an interesting mix of filmmaking talent on the page and behind the camera, Andrew Dominik (writer and director of Killing Them Softly and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) is teaming up with Justin Lin (Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6) for a 3D remake of the 1982 Chinese action flick Shaolin Temple. The original film marked the feature debut of martial arts star Jet Li with a story loosely based on Shaolin folklore and set during the transition period between the Sui Dynasty and the Tang Dynasty. Sounds like completely different film territory for Dominik in more ways than one. More below! The film unfolds after the Tang emperor is betrayed by one of his generals, and one of his slave workers who escapes to the temple decides to train in kung fu, and sets out to kill the traitor. This is expected to be pretty »

Andrew Dominik Will Script Shaolin Temple, For Justin Lin To Direct

22 August 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In an unlikely but extremely promising match-up, Killing Them Softly writer-director Andrew Dominik has been tapped by Perfect Storm Entertainment and Beijing Enlight Pictures to pen the script for Shaolin Temple, a martial arts revenge epic which is set to be directed by The Fast and the Furious helmer Justin Lin.

The pic, a remake of the 1982 movie on which martial arts legend Jet Li made his feature debut, is being planned as a big-scale 3D epic with a hefty budget (when it was announced back in January, Shaolin Temple‘s projected budget clocked in at over $100 million). It’s inspired by Shaolin myth and takes place in ancient China, during the transition period between the Sui Dynasty and the Tang Dynasty.

As per Deadline: When the Tang emperor is betrayed by one of his generals, the son of one of his slave workers escapes to the temple, trains in kung fu, »

Andrew Dominik to Pen Justin Lin’s 3D Shaolin Temple Remake

22 August 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A pretty exciting China-backed project is taking shape.  It was announced earlier this year that Fast Five director Justin Lin had signed on to helm a $100 million 3D Shaolin Temple remake, and now Deadline reports that The Assassination of Jesse James and Killing Them Soflty writer/director Andrew Dominik will be writing the screenplay.  The original 1982 film was Jet Li’s big screen debut and took place during the period between the Sui and Tang Dynasties, revolving around the son of a murdered Tang emperor who trains himself up to enact revenge on the perpetrator.  Perfect Storm Entertainment and Beijing Enlight Pictures are producing the project, which Lin intends to direct next after he completes the new Bourne sequel.  That film hasn’t even started production yet, so Shaolin Temple is still a few years off. Hit the jump for more on Dominik’s involvement. When the Shaolin Temple remake was first announced, »

Justin Lin is Remaking the 1982 Jet Li Movie Shaolin Temple

22 August 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Justin Lin has tackled muscle cars, military boxers, and criminal Asian kids, and now he’s setting his sights on the Shaolin temple. Lin, who directed the last four “Fast and Furious” movies and is scheduled to tackle the next “Bourne Identity” installment, has signed on to helm a remake of the 1982 movie “Shaolin Temple,” which is probably best known for being the big screen leading man debut of Jet Li. The China-set film will be written by, of all people, New Zealander Andrew Dominik, the man who gave the world “Chopper,” “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” and most recently, “Killing Them Softly” with Brad Pitt. Apparently the original was “based on Shaolin folklore and set during the transition period between the Sui Dynasty and the Tang Dynasty.

Watch: Celebrate the Work of Master Cinematographer Roger Deakins in Gorgeous Supercut

13 August 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Video tributes, or “supercuts” as they’re sometimes called, are rather commonplace, and while most of them are pretty one-note, today a video surfaced online that’s too good not to share.  Titled “Shadows in the Valley”, this video is a celebration of the work of cinematographer Roger Deakins, piecing together just a few of the masterful shots that make up his illustrious career.  From The Assassination of Jesse James to Skyfall to Barton Fink to Fargo to The Shawshank Redemption to O Brother Where Art Thou to No Country for Old Men, Deakins’ filmography is filled with gorgeous film after gorgeous film.  He’s a true genius at manipulating and capturing light, and he’s one of the most gifted people working today.  We have only one Deakins-led film to look forward to this year, the war drama Unbroken, but this video is a wonderful reminder of the variety of work Deakins has elicited, »

Casey Affleck in Talks to Star in Disney's The Finest Hours

10 August 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) is in talks to join Chris Pine in Disney's true story adventure drama The Finest Hours

 Million Dollar Arm director Craig Gillespie is helming the project, which is an adaption of the book written by Casey Sherman and Michael J Tougias.

The story is set in 1952 and follows the coast guard rescue of 84 men off Cape Cod after two oil tankers collided and were torn in half by waves during a fierce blizzard.

Affleck and Pine are both incredible actors who seem to fit perfectly in this type of movie. I love this story, and it's sure to make an incredible film. 

Here's the synopsis from the book:

In the winter of 1952, New England was battered by the most brutal nor'easter in years. As the weather wreaked havoc on land, the freezing Atlantic became a wind-whipped zone of peril. »

Video of the Day: Roger Deakins and Coen Brothers supercut

5 August 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Always the bridesmaid and never the bride, cinematographer Roger Deakins is one of the greatest working DPs today, having earned 11 Oscar nominations and never won. He’s like the Susan Lucci of the technical categories.

But he got that way because for years he’s been consistently collaborating with the Coen Brothers on some of their most iconic films, everything from Fargo to O Brother Where Art Thou, The Man Who Wasn’t There, True Grit, The Big Lebowski, Barton Fink and No Country for Old Men. The man is a master, most recently making sinister, wintery chills in last year’s Prisoners.

Thanks to Blag Films, you can now see a short supercut of some of Deakins’ finest shots among his collaboration with the Coens (with the unfortunate exception of The Ladykillers and The Hudsucker Proxy). While only limiting it to Coens films eliminates the chance to see some »

'True Detective' Season 2 Plot Details Emerge, Vaughn and Moss Sought for Lead Roles

5 August 2014 7:27 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We've already heard Colin Farrell was in talks for the second season of HBO's "True Detective" with names such as Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund circling the show's move to the lesser known venues of California. Yesterday we learned Vince Vaughn was in talks for one of the season's three lead roles and today The Wrap adds Elisabeth Moss ("Mad Men") to the mix for the female lead along with Michelle Forbes ("The Killing") for what is being called a "key role". According to The Wrap, the second season will "follow the death of Ben Caspar, the corrupt city manager of a fictional California city who's found brutally murdered amid a potentially groundbreaking transportation deal that would forever change freeway gridlock in the state. Three law enforcement officers (Farrell and likely Kitsch and Moss) from different cities and branches of the government are tasked with finding out who did it. »

The Films of Andrew Dominik: An Introduction

3 August 2014 3:37 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Andrew Dominik is sort of an enigma.  He doesn’t self promote.  He doesn’t suffer fools.  Some people find him rude, while others regard him as honest and matter-of-fact.  He doesn’t give canned answers to journalists.  He’s not a pushover in the studio environment.  He’s successfully positioned himself so that when you think of him, you think of his work.  In a professional context I’ve spoken to him several times at length on the phone or via email (this was some time ago, I was an assistant to one of his reps in 2007) and he’s still a mystery to me in many ways.  When someone mentions him, my mind almost never moves to a memory or recollection those days.  Instead, I immediately go to the final half hour of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and how that stretch of »

Trailer for ’20,000 Days on Earth’, a unique portrait of Nick Cave

25 July 2014 6:23 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Seemingly a little closer in spirit to I’m Not There than, say, Justin Bieber doc Never Say Never, Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard’s 20,000 Days on Earth is an apparently “hard to classify” documentary-fiction hybrid about Nick Cave, the Australian rock musician and songwriter who has also dabbled in acting (Ghosts of the Civil Dead…), novels (And the Ass Saw the Angel, The Death of Bunny Munro), film scores (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), and screenwriting (The Proposition, Lawless).

Exploring Cave as both “man and myth”, the docudrama depicts 24 fictitious hours in his life, with appearances by collaborators like Warren Ellis and Kylie Minogue. You can watch the first trailer for 20,000 Days on Earth below.

20,000 Days On Earth Trailer: New Docudrama Goes inside the Life of Musician Nick Cave

15 July 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Drafthouse Films has released the 20,000 Days on Earth trailer online.  The docudrama goes inside the life of musician Nick Cave.  Personally, I'm only familiar with Cave's work from his amazing score for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (which he composed with Warren Ellis, who also appears in 20,000 Days on Earth) and his screenwriting (he wrote the screenplay for The Proposition, Lawless, and the unmade, completely batshit/brilliant Gladiator 2).  I stayed away from this film at Sundance because I thought it could only be appreciated by Cave's diehard fans, but this trailer makes it look like the movie reaches for ideas that anyone can appreciate regardless of their familiarity with the musician. Hit the jump to check out the 20,000 Days on Earth trailer.  The film opens in select theaters on September 17th. Click over to Apple to see the trailer in HD. Here's official synopsis for »

Watch: The Shadows of Roger Deakins

2 July 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Roger Deakins is widely regarded as one of the industry’s top cinematographers, bringing his characteristic earthen hues to films as divergent as Skyfall and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. He is of course best known for his frequent collaborations with the Coen Brothers (Bruno Delbonnel nicely filled his shoes in Inside Llewyn Davis), and this Plot Point Productions montage, “Roger Deakins: Shadows in the Valley,” makes note of Barton FinkFargoNo Country for Old Men, and a little bit of what’s in between.

Watch This: 'Shadows In The Valley' - A Tribute to Dp Roger Deakins

2 July 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

One of the real masters of modern cinematography is Roger Deakins, a British cinematographer who has been nominated a whopping 11 times for the Best Cinematography Oscar, yet hasn't won one yet. Every year he always seems to end up a talking point during the awards season, because every year he continues to turn out amazing work. Plot Point Productions has decide to pay tribute to Roger Deakins in a video they've just released called "Deakins: Shadows In The Valley", a five-minute montage of some of his best shots and visual techniques. From Skyfall to The Assassination of Jesse James to Fargo to Prisoners to True Grit, his work is always astounding to see, and this video beautifully highlights some of his finest work so far. Enjoy. That wonderful music is from The Assassination of Jesse James, the track "Song for Bob" by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. For more, see Plot Point's Vimeo page. »
