David S. Goyer Taps Kevin Turen President As Superhero Vet Takes Indie Turn

1 December 2014 12:34 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Through his work on the Dark Knight, Blade and Ghost Rider series, David S. Goyer has spent more than his share of time in the superhero trenches. At a time when studios are betting bigger than ever on spandex, Goyer is evolving his film and TV production company Phantom Four in the direction they are avoiding. He’s hired as president Kevin Turen, whose background has been with indie films like A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints, Arbitrage, the Robert Redford-starrer All Is Lost and most recently the Toronto film 99 Homes. While Goyer’s got plenty of mainstream projects through his film deal with Warner Bros and TV deal with Universal Television, he wants to devote his resources to empowering makers of the kind of films that are being honored tonight at the Gotham Awards. That includes raising a fund.

‘Foxcatcher’ Interview with Director Bennett Miller

20 November 2014 5:26 PM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

“I think that we could all do with a healthy dose of disillusionment,” remarks director Bennett Miller while recently speaking in Chicago about his new film Foxcatcher. It’s a statement delivered with his zen garden-like tone (Mark Ruffalo’s words, not mine), and with truth concerning his dramatic pursuits as a storyteller. Foxcatcher, like his previous projects Capote and Moneyball, explores characters and systems that audiences may recognize, but with dramatic ambition then seeks to unravel it in a colder light.

A riveting true story about Olympic wrestling brothers Mark and David Schultz (Channing Tatum and Ruffalo, respectively) and the billionaire who wanted to own their glory (Steve Carell), Foxcatcher is an observational drama on the morose results of the American Dream, and the ideals that create selfish ambition. Miller is certainly aiming high with his material, and mostly achieves this desired prominence with the help of larger-than-life performances. »

Channing Tatum ‘Didn’t Understand Why’ Bennett Miller Wanted to Make ‘Foxcatcher’

20 November 2014 12:13 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The tension was palpable in the theater for Variety’s Screening Series even after “Foxcatcher” came to end. The 134-minute long psychological drama was bookended by director Bennett Miller’s offhanded explanation about the bizarre circumstances that led to the creation of the film.

“A stranger approached me in a store and handed me an envelope that contained newspaper clippings about the story,” Miller said tersely, recalling how he discovered the true story that informs “Foxcatcher.”

But the same tragic story (of sibling Olympic wrestling champions Mark and Dave Schultz and their millionaire benefactor John E. du Pont) that fascinated Miller initially repelled star Channing Tatum.

In fact, Tatum said he initially wasn’t interested in the role when approached about it seven years ago.

“To be quite honest, I didn’t understand exactly why he wanted to make it,” Tatum told the audience at a Q&A following the screening. »

How Channing Tatum Went from Stripper To Potential Oscar Nominee

12 November 2014 5:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

—Aly Semigran

When Foxcatcher arrives in theaters this weekend — the dark, true-life drama about the murder of Olympic wrestling champion Dave Schultz (played by Mark Ruffalo) — it may leave you with a looming question, “Wait, is that really Channing Tatum?” No, not just because Tatum — like his co-star Steve Carell (who plays eccentric millionaire and Schultz’s murderer, John du Pont) — is virtually unrecognizable due to the film’s stunning physical transformations. It’s because Tatum, as the tortured Olympic wrestler (and Dave’s brother) Mark Schultz, reaches staggering new heights as an actor.

The star of Step Up, White House Down, 21 Jump Street, and Magic Mike, among others, not only turns out one of this year’s most harrowing performances, but one of the very best. Even Tatum’s biggest naysayers (yes, they exist) will be blown away by the actor’s emotionally and physically daunting work in Foxcatcher. »

Shia La Beouf And Jai Courtney Are Packing Heat In First Pic From Man Down

6 November 2014 1:15 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dito Montiel is responsible for bringing out of Shia La Beouf one of his most empathetic performances with his directorial debut, A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints. Filmed in 2006 before the more-method-than-Brando actor embarked on a frankly loony series of highly-publicized stunts, he put in a solid turn. Now that the duo are collaborating once more for Man Down, it does bring into question La Beouf’s infamous bag-wearing incident, during which he made sure it was known he was out of the ‘biz.

In the film, La Beouf plays U.S. Marine Gabriel Drummer, who lives in a future American dystopia. Setting off to find his estranged wife (Kate Mara) and son, he brings along his best buddy Devin (Jai Courtney) and the pair commence on tracking down what remains of his family.

This first glimpse at the movie, which is currently in production, shows the best buds as »

Channing Tatum's set for solo spin-off 'Gambit' movie, and now they've got a writer

31 October 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

These days, it seems hard for me to believe that there was a point where I did not like the work of Channing Tatum. For several of his early movies, I felt like he was a good looking guy with no chops at all, and it didn't seem to me like he was ever going to loosen up. He had some buzz around him when he was in "A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints," and he was certainly busy as the next few years unfolded, starring in films like "G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra," "Dear John," "The Eagle," and "Step Up 2: The Streets," but it wasn't until 2011 that I started to come around to what he was doing. "The Dilemma" is a fairly awful film, but Tatum shows up late in the movie and suddenly things start to come to life. Also that spring, "Haywire" came out, and »

Shia Labeouf Cut His Own Face, Pulled Out a Tooth to Make 'Fury' More Realistic

8 October 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

You can always count on Shia Labeouf to take it to the next level.

How's this for method acting?

Though Shia Labeouf has been known to take things to the extreme, according to his Fury co-star Logan Lerman, he took his notoriously bizarre on-set antics to the next level during the filming of the highly anticipated World War II film.

In a new interview with British GQ (via The Independent), Logan revealed that Shia actually took a knife and cut up his own face to make his war wounds more realistic.

"They [makeup artists] were putting cuts on Shia and I said, 'Yeah, yeah, it looks good,'" Logan said. "And Shia was like 'No, it doesn't look real.'"

But nothing could prepare him for what happened next.

"He walks out into the hallway and says, 'Hey man, wanna see something fun? Check this out…' and he takes out a knife and cuts his face," he recalled »

Shia Labeouf, Kate Mara and Gary Oldman Sign Up for Man Down

Shia Labeouf & Dito Montiel Reunite for Post-Apocalyptic 'Man Down'

4 September 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Perhaps the only good film that director Dito Montiel has delivered was his 2006 directorial debut A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints. And now maybe he can get back to making good movies as a press release from The Solution Entertainment Group has revealed that Montiel will reteam with recently troubled actor Shia Labeouf, one of the stars of the aforementioned film (who isn't supposed to be famous anymore), for a new thriller called Man Down. The film follows a haunted Afghanistan war veteran who attempts to come to terms with his past while searching for his family out in a post-apocalyptic America. In addition, "House of Cards" star Kate Mara and the always incredible Gary Oldman are set to star in the film as well. The script comes from Adam Simon (Synapse), and the logline certainly sounds like something different for Montiel. After all, we're not sure why there's a post-apocalyptic world in the film, »
