Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

12 Actors Who Basically Guarantee You Make A Flop

30 July 2014 8:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney

The term “box office poison” is one synonymous with actors who, for a multitude of reasons, just can’t seem to catch a break. Despite each of these performers having a significant enough profile with audiences, there’s something about them that just doesn’t entice people to go catch their latest movies, and as a result, they’ve endured a string of financially unsuccessful efforts, regardless of the critical acclaim they may have acquired (in some cases, at least).

Hiring these actors will, for the most part, result in a movie failing to gather any financial traction whatsoever, and while we can’t discount the fact that some of these actors willfully picked art over commerce, there’s no denying the fact that a string of monetary flops will do little to help any actor’s career.

Some of these performers are at least lucky enough to do well from animated fare, »

Spike Lee on ‘Da Sweet Blood of Jesus’ and Hollywood’s Diversity Problem

23 June 2014 3:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Spike Lee’s latest horror film, “Da Sweet Blood of Jesus,” is about a couple of bloodsuckers, but don’t call them vampires. “This is not a vampire story,” Lee says from his production offices in Brooklyn. “Vampires can’t go out in the day in the Fort Green Projects. This is about people who are addicted to blood.” His movie was inspired by 1974′s “Ganja & Hess,” directed by Bill Gunn, which Lee first saw in NYU film school. “Bill didn’t think it was a vampire movie either,” Lee says. “Once it was taken from him and recut, it was sold that way to capitalize on the success of ‘Blacula.’”

Lee’s project, which he co-wrote and produced, is probably best known as the one he pitched on KickStarter last year. He says he learned about the crowd-funding site from his students at Nyu, where he’s long taught film classes. »

First Image Arrives From Spike Lee's Kickstarter-Funded 'Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus'

11 June 2014 3:52 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Spike Lee has had better points in his career than this one. It's a full eight years since his last legitimate hit, "Inside Man," and recent attempts at a comeback have ended up disappointing somewhat: John Boyega-starring HBO show "Da Brick" didn't get picked up beyond a pilot, indie "Red Hook Summer" failed to find much of an audience, and last year's "Oldboy" was a critical and commercial washout. But you can't keep a great director down, and Lee didn't hang about: even before "Oldboy" hit theaters, the filmmaker had taken to Kickstarter to raise the budget for another movie, called "Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus," a rare dip into the horror genre that promises to be his own unique spin on the vampire movie, described by the filmmaker as being about "human beings who are addicted to blood. Funny, sexy and bloody." The film's mostly under wraps still, »

What Did You Watch This Weekend?

9 June 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Weekend Watch is an open thread where you can share what you’ve recently watched, offer suggestions on movies and TV shows we should check out (or warnings about stuff to avoid) and discover queue-filling goodies from other Fsr readers. The comments section awaits. I’ll get the ball rolling with the movies/TV my eyeballs took in this weekend. I’m not much of a Spike Lee fan —  a fact probably made evident by Inside Man being my favorite of his films — but to be fair I’ve seen far less than half of his output. This week’s release of two double feature Blu-rays from Lee has upped that percentage, but while three of the four films do little for me my first-time watch of 25th Hour was a revelation. Smartly scripted (by David Benioff from his own novel), wonderfully cast and beautifully shot, the film captures the importance of “now” with its portrait »

In A Valley of Violence

James Ransone ("Generation Kill," "Inside Man") has joined the cast of Ti West's "In A Valley Of Violence" at Blumhouse Productions. John Travolta and Ethan Hawke also star.

Selma

Tim Roth is set to play Alabama Governor George Wallace in Ava DuVernay's upcoming civil rights film "Selma". Wallace favored segregation, his actions galvanising Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and led to the famed 1965 march.

Wallace vowed to stop the march, Alabama State Troopers brutally beating the first wave of protestors. The subsequent national outrage led to an increase in protesters and helped President Lyndon Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) to push forth the Voting Rights Act. [Source: Deadline]

No Cannes Do: Why Spike Lee Nixed ‘Do The Right Thing’ Silver Anniversary For Black Fest Fete

13 May 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival marks 25 years since Spike Lee brought Do The Right Thing to the Croisette in a premiere that left some journalists labeling it a powder keg and predicting a trail of racial violence for its U.S. release. Lee was invited to celebrate the anniversary in Cannes Classics, but business commitments kept him home. Lee instead is throwing all his chips into the comparatively obscure American Black Film Festival, which moves from Miami to New York next month. There, he’ll celebrate the silver anniversary and launch his new film, Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus, and he is hoping hard that distributors will come. Lee, who 28 years ago made his feature debut on the seminal indie She’s Gotta Have It, has since made films of every shape, size and genre, way more of them memorable (Malcolm X, Inside Man) than forgettable (Oldboy).

Spike Lee Will Adapt 'She's Gotta Have It' as a Showtime Series

5 May 2014 5:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Spike Lee is updating his 1985 feature film debut "She's Gotta Have It," as a half hour comedy for Showtime. Deadline broke the story, reporting that the project will "explore Lee's unique and provocative points of view about race, gender, sexuality, relationships, and the gentrification in Brooklyn." The last hot button issue aside, this marks a big move for the 57-year-old Lee. As movies continue to move to the small screen in various forms, writers and directors formerly exclusive to film are transitioning with them. Lee has directed moves sent straight to TV before, including "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" and "Bad 25," but this will be his first project written for television.  He also hasn't seen much success, critically or commercially, in almost a decade. Lee's last hit was "Inside Man" in 2006, and his directorial remake "Oldboy" was met with almost universal condemnation last year before bombing at the box office. »

Cinematographer Matthew Libatique Talks ‘Noah’ and Darren Aronofsky

23 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cinematographer Matthew Libatique has collaborated with Darren Aronofsky on all of his features save “The Wrestler.” This includes “Black Swan,” for which Libatique earned an Oscar nomination, and Aronofsky’s latest, “Noah,” a fanciful take on the Old Testament patriarch who built the ark.

The d.p. has repeated projects with Spike Lee (“Inside Man,” “Miracle at St. Anna”), Jon Favreau (the first two “Iron Man” films, “Cowboys & Aliens) and Joel Schumacher (“Tigerland,” “Phone Booth”). We spoke with Libatique, who will be participating in a cinematography master class on April 26 at the Newport Beach Film Festival, about “Noah,” the process and director/d.p. dynamics. This is an edited version of the conversation.

The setting and look of “Noah” suggests both a pre-civilized and post-apocalyptic world. What was your aesthetic approach in achieving this?

It was a focus on naturalism. The film ultimately goes in a place where you’re »

Chiwetel Ejiofor Reportedly Wanted As Next Bond Villain

4 April 2014 10:57 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

After the brilliant Skyfall, the hype for the upcoming 24th James Bond film is sky high. With pretty much all the key players of Skyfall returning including writer John Logan and director Sam Mendes, all the ingredients seem to be in place for what could be another classic Bond adventure. But of course Daniel Craig needs a foil and the filmmakers are reportedly targeting a really hot name as the main villain. Chiwetel Ejiofor has been around for a long time and has been supporting in such diverse fair as Children Of Men, Inside Man & 2012. However it was only with last year’s 12 Years A Slave that he really stepped out onto the mainstream scene as a lead player with an Oscar nomination to boot. Ejiofor is apparently on the very top of the list to follow in Javier Bardem’s footsteps as the next Bond villain, although we must »
