Nightcrawler’s Dan Gilroy To Adapt Heist Thriller Storming Las Vegas For Antoine Fuqua

27 November 2014 10:01 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After overseeing one of the most revered films of the year in Nightcrawler, director-slash-screenwriter Dan Gilroy is set to return to scripting duties for his next project, Storming Las Vegas.

In an interview with The Wrap, Gilroy confirmed his involvement in the project, which will be directed by The Equalizer‘s Antoine Fuqua alongside regular producing partner Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Lifting the story from John Huddy’s eponymous, true-crime novel, Storming Las Vegas orbits around an adrenaline junkie known as Jose Vigoa who, upon arriving in Sin City, cooks up a ploy to hit the biggest casinos on the strip as he looks to get away with millions.

The novel’s by-line offers up a better take on the heist thriller, which sums up Vigoa’s adventure quite succinctly.

Dan Gilroy Adapting Storming Las Vegas

26 November 2014 10:11 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

After spending years as a writer, working on the likes of 2006’s The Fall and The Bourne Legacy, Dan Gilroy has launched himself as a director with the searing Nightcrawler. But for a new job, he’s switching back to just scriptwriting, signing on to adapt John Huddy’s book Storming Las Vegas, which Antoine Fuqua is set to direct.To give it its full, marquee-straining title, Storming Las Vegas: How a Cuban-Born, Soviet-Trained Commando Took Down The Strip To The Tune Of Five World Class Hotels, Three Armoured Cars, And Millions of Dollars, the book follows the rags-to-riches story of Jose Vigoa, who has been described as a modern-day Robin Hood.Born in Cuba, Vigoa was a Soviet army veteran who arrived in Vegas during the ‘90s, when the casinos were trying to push a cleaner image. He and his gang pulled off a violent, 16-month crime wave »

Keanu Reeves to Lead Tarsem Singh's Action Thriller 'The Panopticon'

19 November 2014 4:46 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

This year saw Keanu Reeves get some deserved attention for his ass-kicking role in John Wick, though the film should have gotten even more attention at the box office. The actor has a couple sci-fi projects lined up with the gestating space travel romance Passengers still kicking around, and there's also Replicas, which will reteam Reeves with John Wick producer Stephen Hamel. Now The Wrap reports Reeves is in talks to lead The Panopticon, an action thriller from director Tarsem Singh (The Fall, Mirror Mirror) and writer Craig Rosenberg (After the Sunset), and it sounds perfect for Reeves to tackle following John Wick. The story follows a salesman (Reeves) who receives a pre-recorded message from himself that tells him the world is about to end and only he can save it. It's a race against time to piece a puzzle together in order to save mankind. If the film packs »

Keanu Reeves In Early Talks For Tarsem Singh’s The Panopticon

19 November 2014 2:29 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ambitious filmmaker Tarsem Singh has a big name on his radar for the lead in his next feature, The Panopticon, as The Wrap reports that Keanu Reeves is in the crosshairs. Set up at Good Universe, the film looks set to continue the helmer’s reputation for brain-busting sci-fi spectacles. The report offers a brief synopsis of the flick, which “follows a seemingly ordinary man who receives a mysterious package containing a pre-recorded message from himself, warning that the world is about to end and only he can save it. He must race against the clock to piece together the puzzle before time runs out for mankind.”

As it stands, the negotiations are at a “sensitive stage,” which we’ll take to mean that Reeves has yet to sign on officially. Possibly because after a post-Matrix lull, he’s in demand once more. The actor has been making a much-needed comeback of late. »

Keanu Reeves in Talks to Star in Tarsem Singh’s The Panopticon

19 November 2014 1:25 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Visually ambitious filmmaker Tarsem Singh may have found a swell lead actor for his sci-fi thriller The Panopticon.  The Wrap reports that Keanu Reeves is in talks to star in the film for Good Universe, which revolves around "a seemingly ordinary man who receives a mysterious package containing a pre-recorded message from himself, warning that the world is about to end and only he can save it.” He must work to piece together the puzzle before time runs out for mankind.  Singh broke out in a big way with his visually arresting 2000 film The Cell, which he followed up with another aesthetically grand feature called The Fall in 2006.  He made his first foray into the world of studio actioners to less-than-stellar results with 2011’s Immortals, and then helmed a take on the Snow White story with 2012’s Mirror Mirror. Hit the jump for more on Reeves and Panopticon. Per The Wrap, »

Casting: Keanu Reeves Sees Tarsem's 'The Panopitcon,' Djimon Honsou Eyed For 'King Arthur' And More

19 November 2014 12:17 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Tarsem, the visually impressive filmmaker behind "The Cell," "The Fall" and uh, "Immortals," has a new movie brewing that will make you go "whoa." Keanu Reeves will lead the director's flick "The Panopticon," which centres on "a seemingly ordinary man who receives a mysterious package containing a pre-recorded message from himself, warning that the world is about to end and only he can save it. He must race against the clock to piece together the puzzle before time runs out for mankind." How perfectly Keanu, though we'd rather see a "John Wick" sequel. Add Djimon Honsou to the rumor pile for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur flick "Knights Of The Round Table." The actor is reportedly being eyed to play "Merlin-esque figure who trains and mentors Arthur," and if it happens, he'll join the cast which includes Charlie Hunnam as Arthur and Astrid Berges-Frisbey (“I Origins”) playing »

Keanu Reeves in talks to star in Tarsem Singh's thriller The Panopticon

The newly energized Keanu Reeves continues to make headlines with upcoming and potentially great roles. Just a few weeks ago we told you he was teaming up with Tanya Wexler for the sci-fi action flick Replicas and now the actor might be landing himself a role in Tarsem Singh’s next project, a thriller titled The Panopticon. You might have seen some of Singh’s past efforts; visual greats like The Cell and The Fall are definitely worth checking out. This film sounds a little »

10 indie sci-fi films to look out for in 2015

17 November 2014 6:25 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Looking for some less mainstream sci-fi films in the year ahead? Then here's our list of 10 genre movies to look out for in 2015...

If you've been keeping an eye on next year's schedules, you'll probably already know about some of the major sci-fi films due for release in 2015. Ridley Scott will leave Matt Damon stranded on the red planet in The Martian. Colin Trevorrow will unleash a new breed of dinosaurs in Jurassic World. George Miller will be bringing us his belated Mad Max sequel Fury Road, Neill Blomkamp will show off his robot sci-fi comedy Chappie, and then, of course, there's Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

But what about the smaller genre films, the ones that don't have the marketing budget of, say, Disney's Tomorrowland, or the brand recognition of Star Wars? Those are the kinds of films we're focusing on here: the lower budget, »

1 November 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Role: Screenwriter Dan Gilroy (2006's The Fall, The Bourne Legacy) makes his directorial debut with Nightcrawler (which he wrote as well).

Interview: ‘Nightcrawler’ Director Dan Gilroy on Manipulation and Ditching the Character Arc

31 October 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

It’s rare to see a directorial debut that is a total home run, but that’s Nightcrawler in a nutshell. The film’s writer/director, Dan Gilroy, is not, however, some rookie who got lucky. He’s been a screenwriter for years, with credits on films like The Fall, Real Steel and The Bourne Legacy. He was the writer […]

Fantastic Fest 2014: Interview with Nightcrawler Director Dan Gilroy

29 October 2014 10:50 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

While I was covering Fantastic Fest in Austin, I was able to sit down with the writer and director of Nightcrawler, Dan Gilroy. Even though he worked on films like Real Steel, The Fall, and The Bourne Legacy, this is his directorial debut. You can read my full review of the film Here. Below you can find my interview with Dan Gilroy where he goes into how he views La, what some of the important themes in the movie are, and what he thinks of sex in movies.

 

The idea of entrepreneurship and “bad business” is a central theme in Nightcrawler. Do you see the film as a movie with a message and if so did the message change or evolve as you developed the script?

I wrote the film to be engaging and entertaining but it does have a theme and it does have messages. I think, in a meta sense, »

Interview: ‘Nightcrawler’ Director Dan Gilroy Talks Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Elswit & Sociopaths

29 October 2014 12:27 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Writer and director Dan Gilroy speaks in a manner in which ideas, facts and concepts come tumbling out, his train of thought speeding fast but never in danger of going off the track. The credited screenwriter on films like “The Bourne Legacy,” the long-forgotten “Freejack,” the family-friendly heroics of “Real Steel” and the grim fairy tale “The Fall,” Gilroy makes his directorial debut with “Nightcrawler.” Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, the film depicts the rise and fall of Lou Bloom, a self-motivated striver who bootstraps into a freelance job filming the car crashes and crime scenes of L.A. at night for the local news channels that thrive on blood and bad news (our review).  Gilroy spoke with The Playlist about what cinematographer Robert Elswit (“There Will Be Blood,” “Boogie Nights”) brought to the film, the economic realities behind the Lou Bloom character, Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance and the film's depiction of the dark dream of L. »

Asking Stupid Questions Made Jake Gyllenhaal a Better Actor

29 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Last summer Jake Gyllenhaal dropped out of Into the Woods to film Dan Gilroy‘s Nightcrawler. When the two production schedules clashed, the actor had to ask himself: should I make some bank off the huge Disney musical or take a pay cut to star in the directorial debut of the guy who wrote The Fall and The Bourne Legacy? Thankfully, Gyllenhaal didn’t base his decision on how many zeroes his check would have had. That’s not to imply Into the Woods is a project without artistic merit, but how frequently does a character as complex as Lou Bloom come along? It’s a question with an obvious answer, but a potentially moronic question is apropos for a discussion with Gyllenhaal, an actor who’s more than willing to ask questions others might deem stupid. Bloom features the DNA of Travis Bickle and Rupert Pupkin, but he’s his own scrappy animal. The »

‘Nightcrawler’ Starring Jake Gyllenhaal Cranks Up UK Viral Campaign

26 October 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Out among the usual thrillers being release, there’s always one that turns up unexpectedly to the party and blows the opposition away. Out on 31st October, Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler is looking very special indeed and if what we hear is everything to go by, Jake Gyllenhaal is back with another inspirational turn in the lead role.

Gilroy hasn’t a huge case of work yet, but The Fall (2006) remains a seminal piece of cinema that is still miles ahead of other works at that time, and even probably now. He was also behind the story for Reel Steel and wrote the screenplay for The Bourne Legacy, so he’s got a good idea of top notch action.

In Nightcrawler, Gyllenhaal stars as Louis Bloom, a young man who stumbles upon the underground world of L.A. freelance crime journalism and let’s say, he really gets into the part. »
