George Lucas Says Studios "Don't Have Any Imagination And Don't Have Any Talent"

20 October 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For a guy who has made millions upon millions of dollars thanks to the support of Hollywood studios, the constant axe George Lucas has to grind with the system is a bit baffling. Last year, he and pal Steven Spielberg warned that an "implosion" was on the horizon, and raised concerned that their epics "Lincoln" and "Red Tails" had trouble getting made on the studio dime. Meanwhile, Lucas has also warned film students about being lured by the magic and endless possibilities of digital technology, while urging them to stay focused on "the art of the movies." And according to Lucas—the guy who found homes and financing for mega-franchises "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" at 20th Century Fox and Paramount—the big studios are basically the worst. "...the problem has always been the studios,” Lucas told Charlie Rose on "CBS This Morning." "Although the beginning of the studios, the entrepreneurs who. »

'Underworld 5' Character and Story Details; Theo James Will Star

11 September 2014 5:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, we reported that Lakeshore Entertainment is developing a reboot of their Underworld franchise, with screenwriter Cory Goodman (Priest, Apollo 18) coming aboard to write the script. Today, we have word from The Hollywood Reporter that this project is not a reboot at all, with Divergent star Theo James set to reprise his role from 2012's Underworld Awakening as the vampire David.

Theo James' David will be the central character in this new project, which will expand the existing Underworld franchise. Insiders claim that Lakeshore still has an option on the actor due to his work on Underworld Awakening, and he will star alongside two new female characters. Casting is currently under way for those roles, with plans to start shooting this spring.

Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi are producing for Lakeshore, although a director has not been attached at this time.

Theo James made his feature film debut in Underworld Awakening, »

About Alex – The Review

7 August 2014 6:17 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

If you’re a child of the 80s, like myself, then your know all about what makes a good movie about friends. No, forget that Friends TV show and its unrealistic sitcom stereotypes. I’m talking about films like the 1985 classics The Breakfast Club  and St. Elmo’S Fire, or Fast Times At Ridgemont High (1982) or even Revenge Of The Nerds (1984). We knew what friends on film were all about in the 80s, but whatever happened to that great emotionally-driven, sentimental sub-genre of dramatic comedies?

I have the answer… thank god for filmmaking dynasties. In the tradition of great directors passing the torch to their children, award-winning director Edward Zwick has clearly fostered promising talent in his son Jesse Zwick, whose feature film debut About Alex manages to instill a renewed sense of sentimentality into the friendship dramedy genre. With a youthful voice, writer and director Jesse Zwick recycles what »

Films paid for almost entirely by a wealthy(ish) benefactor

31 July 2014 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Without the help of some brave investors, or the pockets of their makers, the following films would never have existed...

It's now a fairly common mantra that you'd be a fool to put up all of your own personal money into a feature film. By all means invest, but share the risk, or throw a few quid at Kickstarter.

Paying for the bulk of the negative/hard drive yourself, and leaving your own assets exposed? Utter lunacy.

Not that anyone told this lot...

The Passion Of The Christ Paid for by: Mel Gibson

For some time, Mel Gibson had, alongside his acting roles, been heavily invested in his production company, Icon. As such, he had two significant ways to earn money, and he needed both of them when it came to making The Passion Of The Christ.

This is the kind of film that studios run a mile from. All »

Meet Star Wars Rebels Agent Kallus, Imperial Security Bureau Agent

10 July 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Most of Lucasfilm's media outreach for Star Wars Rebels antagonists has been directed at The Inquisitor, a red lightsaber-yielding foe that the crew of the Ghost will soon learn is a worth adversary to their rebellious cause. Though The Inquisitor is the main Star Wars Rebels villain, he's definitely not the only.

Meet Star Wars Rebels Agent Kallus, a throwback to the 1970s-era designs that heavily influenced the attire in Star Wars: A New Hope. With mutton chops any razor would fear, Agent Kallus is all business as he seeks to uphold the Emperor's laws as a member of the Imperial Security Bureau (Isb).

Agent Kallus will be voiced by David Oyelowo, a highly sought after actor who has starred in Red Tails, The Butler, Lincoln, and will next be seen in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. Oyelowo describes Kallus' job description is "to basically make sure everyone stays loyal. »

Daniel Radcliffe spotted on the set of Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck

1 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The 40-Year Old Virgin and This Is 40 director Judd Apatow is currently filming his highly secretive new comedy, Trainwreck in New York City. We don’t know much about the film outside of its star-studded cast, but have been speculating that former Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe will have a cameo. New photos from the film’s Bryant Park set have hit the web, all but confirming Radcliffe’s involvement.

As you can see, Radcliffe is walking a dozen dogs and hanging out with Apatow and Marisa Tomei. Apatow, of course, refused to admit anything on Twitter, and instead insisted that Radcliffe was just walking his dogs:

“@danradcliffecom:Dan to cameo in Trainwreck? Read: http://t.co/gGW5o43HIB pic.twitter.com/D2XcNoHeEU” Not true! He was just walking his dogs

Can Lucas build a Legacy?

28 June 2014 3:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr on whether George Lucas can build a legacy with ‘The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art’….

‘Narrative art’ is defined as something ‘that tells a story, either as a moment in an ongoing story or as a sequence of events unfolding over time’

George Lucas has retired apparently. Having sold his empire to Disney making him wealthier than a barely developed principality with minimal infrastructure, we are now being treated to phase two in the Lucas mid-life crisis.

When I first heard that Norman Rockwell, foremost painter of post war Americana was being placed alongside original Star Wars miniatures and props it made no sense. Rockwell was known for capturing perfect moments in life which told a story or narrative beyond the confines of the frame. How could Lucas have the temerity to place his work alongside that of a real artist?

Gugu Mbatha-Raw becomes a pop star in 'Beyond the Lights' -- Exclusive Photos

25 June 2014 4:36 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It was 2007 and Alicia Keys was singing “Diary” at the Hollywood Bowl when inspiration struck writer-director Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love and Basketball) for her new movie Beyond the Lights, the tale of a perfectly packaged pop star, played by Belle’s Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who’s been groomed for stardom from a young age by her overbearing, opportunistic mother (Minnie Driver).

The movie spent years in development while Prince-Bythewood, who helmed 2008′s Secret Life of Bees, argued with Sony Pictures over her lead actress. “The studios wanted a big star, and I wanted the right person for the role,” says Prince-Bythewood, who »

What's the best romance starring African-Americans (I vote 'Love and Basketball') and why are there are so few?

Last night at a showing of Think Like a Man Too I was thrilled to see a trailer for the upcoming Gina Prince-Bythewood movie Beyond the Lights. It’s the story of the romance between a vulnerable young woman on the brink of pop stardom (Belle breakout actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw) and Nate Parker (Non-Stop). Hello, sold. But I was already in because of Prince-Bythewood, who wrote and directed one of my favorite romances, 2000′s Love and Basketball.

Trailer for indie comedy drama About Alex starring Aubrey Plaza and Jane Levy

20 June 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Screen Media Films has released the trailer for their upcoming indie About Alex. The film, which has been compared to The Big Chill, stars Aubrey Plaza (Safety Not Guaranteed), Jane Levy (Evil Dead), Max Greenfield (New Girl), Nate Parker (Red Tails), Max Minghella (The Social Network), Jason Ritter (The Big Ask), and Maggie Grace (Taken).

The debut film from writer/director Jesse Zwick, About Alex debuted at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival to some good reviews. The film follows a circle of twenty-something friends who reunite for a weekend away after one of them suffers an emotional breakdown. Despite the group’s best efforts to keep it light and enjoy themselves, a tinderbox of old jealousies, unrequited love, and widening political differences leads to an explosion that, coupled with the flammable combination of drugs, wine, and risotto, cannot be contained.

'Community' Movie Eyes 'Fast & Furious' Director Justin Lin

26 March 2014 3:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

"Six seasons and a movie" has been Community fans' rallying cry ever since Abed (Danny Pudi) uttered that now-famous line in a Season 2 episode, while referencing NBC's short-lived series The Cape. But will the movie actually happen? As NBC executives currently mull the fate of Community's sixth and final season, TV Guide reports that Justin Lin (Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6) is being eyed to direct the feature.

Nothing is set in stone at this time, but the directorial choice would make sense, since Justin Lin directed three Season 1 episodes, the popular "paintball" episode "Modern Warfare", "Interpretive Dance" and "Introduction to Statistics".

Even if Justin Lin isn't available, the show has used several other feature directors throughout its five-season run, such as Captain America: The Winter Soldier's Anthony Russo and Joe Russo. The brothers had previously served as executive producers on the series, with the latter directing last »
