The Notable Films of 2010: Part Five

23 December 2009 10:10 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Hippie Hippie Shake

Opens: 2010

Cast: Cillian Murphy, Sienna Miller, Max Minghella, Emma Booth, Lee Ingleby

Director: Beeban Kidron

Summary: Follows the love story of Oz editor Richard Neville and Louise Ferrier. Neville and his cohorts launch the London edition of Oz amidst the 1960s counterculture and are subsequently put on trial for distributing a sexually explicit issue.

Analysis: One of the most troubled productions in Working Title's history, 'Hippie' began development back in 1998 but failed to get beyond script stage both in 1999 and in 2002 when "Elizabeth" helmer Shekhar Kapur was attached to direct. Filming finally got underway late 2007 with director Beeban Kidron in charge and shooting seemed to proceed without issue aside from feminist author Germaine Greer being vehemently unhappy about being depicted on film.

Actually the film scored quite a bit of free press for a skinny dipping scene where full-frontal shots of actress Sienna Miller shooting the sequence »

Lorax Speaks For The Trees In 2012

29 July 2009 12:56 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Recent attempts to bring Dr Seuss to the screen (The Cat in the Hat, The Grinch, Horton Hears a Who) have been patchy at best, but we're optimistic that Universal's 3D animated The Lorax could break the trend.The forest-dwelling Lorax first appeared in print in 1971, but his eco-friendly message - "I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees!" - is as relevant today as ever. Kind of a bleak message though. The Lorax' forest is destroyed by big industry, leaving only a polluted wasteland, and the Lorax buggers off into the smog, never to be seen again. Although it's ultimately revealed that the narrator has a single seed left, with which to start the forest again and tempt the Lorax back, we can probably expect that ending to be substantially cheered up.The script will be written by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio (who did Horton) according to Variety, »

'Horton' helmer has 'Hex' next

5 January 2009 6:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Jimmy Hayward, who directed the animated "Horton Hears a Who!" will make his live-action debut with "Jonah Hex," the Warner Bros. western based on the DC Comics character.

Josh Brolin is attached to star in the film, which previously had Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor ("Crank") on board as directors. The duo, who also wrote the script, bowed out over creative differences in November. The studio, which hopes to put the movie into production in March or April, went on a fast-track search, putting together a short list that included such names as Andy Fickman and McG before narrowing it down to Hayward.

The character of Hex, known for having the right side of his face disfigured and wearing a Confederate army uniform, was a rough-and-tumble gunslinger and part-time bounty hunter whose adventures always ended in blood. One incarnation of his comic book series saw the Western genre combined with supernatural elements, »
