Next Factor Q&A: 'Ruby Sparks' Star Zoe Kazan

29 October 2012 3:00 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Though "Ruby Sparks" may be one of Zoe Kazan's first leading roles in a movie, she's no stranger to Hollywood. Kazan has had supporting roles alongside such heavyweights as Ryan Gosling ("Fracture"), Leonardo DiCaprio ("Revolutionary Road") and Meryl Streep ("It's Complicated"). Not to mention she's the granddaughter of the late Oscar-winning filmmaker Elia Kazan ("On the Waterfront").

Kazan is now pulling double duty in "Ruby Sparks," which arrives on DVD and Blu-ray this week, having written the screenplay and playing the lead. Ruby is a fictional character created by young novelist Calvin (played by Kazan's real-life boyfriend Paul Dano) who suddenly appears in the flesh in Calvin's home the next morning. She's the girl of Calvin's dreams who can also be controlled by whatever he writes with his typewriter. As the movie progresses, their relationship stops being a fantasy and gets really real.

Award Worthy: Richard Chew talks about the Oscars and BAFTAs

4 July 2012 2:42 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Richard Chew about what it is like being an Academy member and what it takes to be nominated for Best Editing at the Oscars...

“Recently I was looking at both the BAFTA awards and Oscar winners to see if there was any correlation between Best Editing and Best Picture, and even more importantly any correlation between the writing nominations and Best Editing awards,” reveals Academy Award-winning film editor Richard Chew (Star Wars). “Arbitrarily I went back to 1970 because that’s when the more adventurous film editing started to bloom. A good example from that year is the documentary Woodstock [1970] which was nominated for Best Documentary as well as Best Editing; it was edited with such verve and boldness, unlike most other American documentaries or movies up to then. It won the Best Doc Oscar, and not the editing one, but at least it got exposure for its cutting. »

Evans Lost Fracture Role To Gosling

22 April 2012 6:46 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Captain America star Chris Evans missed out on a role opposite his acting hero Sir Anthony Hopkins in Fracture because Ryan Gosling wanted the part.

Evans tells Playboy magazine he thought the role in the 2007 movie was his until he realised he was up against Gosling.

He says, "I really wanted that movie... I had a really good audition and the director and I had gotten along incredibly well.

"He called me and said, 'Listen, you're my guy for this thing'. But Ryan was on the way up as well, and I think he just read it and liked it." »

Has Fox found its director for Zorro Reborn?

8 March 2012 12:16 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fox's post apocalyptic take on the Zorro legend, Zorro Reborn, might just have found its director...

We recently reported that Gael Garcia Bernal had been cast as the lead in Zorro Reborn, a post apocalyptic take on the legend of the character. The film is based on a script that was originally written by Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy (Harker) and later rewritten by Glenn Gers (Fracture).

In addition to the post apocalyptic setting, Zorro Reborn will distance itself further from the traditions of the legend by not setting the action in either California or Mexico.

When we brought you the news of Bernal’s casting, Fox was still without a director. But now? It appears it has a favourite in Peruvian director Ricardo de Montreuil, whose short film The Raven has impressed many an exec of late. The short can be found on YouTube if you want to see what caught Fox’s eye. »

‘Zorro Reborn’ Eyes Its Director

7 March 2012 5:29 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With Gael García Bernal pegged to lead Fox’s Zorro reboot, Zorro Reborn, the search for a director is starting to zero in on Ricardo de Montreuil. Though probably not a name you have any reaction to at first glance, he was, at one point, almost in the Hollywood game; Universal and Mark Wahlberg took a liking to his six-minute short, The Raven, back in December of 2010. And then that was kind of it.

So while nothing’s been said on that front in the 15 months since things were developing, Variety tells us that Montreuil is now one of the top contenders for Zorro. (I’m guessing The Raven and prior interest in it played a big part in this coming together, for what it may be worth.) Fox’s current plan calls for the Peruvian to direct Bernal in a screen test — one that I can’t imagine has »

John Badham To Make His Feature-Length Return With ‘In The Rough’

24 February 2012 2:44 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Veteran filmmaker John Badham is ready to get back on the feature saddle again. He’s in talks to take on In The Rough, written by Leslie Boehm (the man who’s given us Dante’s Peak, Daylight and The Darkest Hour). Rough is an action-adventure concerning a retired hunter, a female Red Cross employee and a CIA agent searching for priceless jewels in the Indian jungles. Adventure ensues [Moviehole].

Badham began his career in the early 70s directing television, both episodes and movies, until 1977, when he broke out as a film director with Saturday Night Fever. Since then he’s helmed a vast variety of entertainment, at least one of which you probably love. His films range from Short Circuit to WarGames to Stakeout to the Point Break-wannabee Drop Zone (which is a personal guilty pleasure).

In the mid-90s he gave us Nick of Time, a mildly interesting Johnny Depp »

Gael Garcia Bernal cast as the lead in Zorro Reborn

19 February 2012 9:34 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sony’s post apocalyptic take on the Zorro legend has found its lead in Gael Garcia Bernal.

Mexican handsome man Gael Garcia Bernal looks set to swish his sword on screens (not in a Y Tu Mamá También way), as he’s signed on to play Zorro in a new take of the character. This time, said character will be appearing in a post apocalyptic version of the story, titled Zorro Reborn.

Full details of the story are unclear at this stage, other than we can expect Bernal’s Zorro is on a revenge mission. The script was originally written by Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy (Harker) and Glenn Gers (Fracture) has subsequently been called in to provide a re-write. The film is currently without a director but with Bernal now attached we should expect the job to be filled shortly, as 20th Century Fox seems keen on the project. »

Gael Garcia Bernal is Zorro in Zorro Reborn Reboot

17 February 2012 5:19 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

About a year ago, we learned that 20th Century Fox was planning to reboot the "Zorro" franchise with a film called "Zorro Reborn." Now comes word that the studio has hired Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal (Babel) to star as the title character. The new movie will take Zorro out of his California or Mexico setting, and place him into a desolate and post-apocalyptic future. He will be less a caped crusader for justice than a one-man vigilante force bent on revenge, in a western story that's similar in tone to "No Country for Old Men." Glenn Gers (Fracture) wrote the script for "Zorro Reborn," which is now seeing a director. Rpin Suwannath, a pre-visualization specialist who worked on a number of the "X-Men," "Matrix" and "Chronicles of Narnia" movies, was set to helm, but has since dropped out. »

Gael García Bernal To Star In Zorro Reboot

17 February 2012 11:08 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

20th Century Fox have unveiled Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries, Bad Education) as their leading man in Zorro Reborn, which will see the masked outlaw dishing out vigilante justice in a completely new setting; a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Furthermore, the character of Zorro will be more of an anti-hero instead of a re-hash of his more typically clean-cut heroic persona. Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy have teamed up with Glenn Gers (Fracture, Mad Money) to write the script, and producers are currently in search of a director to take on the project.

This news arguably perpetuates the notion that Hollywood have run out of ideas and are clutching at straws, however, if anyone can prove this point wrong it would be the likes of Bernal. He has had a long and diverse acting career, despite his relatively young age, and could have the experience and talent needed to turn a mediocre idea into an entertaining production. »

Gael Garcia Bernal to star in Zorro Reborn

17 February 2012 7:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gael Garcia Bernal (Y Tu Mama Tambien, The Motorcycle Diaries) is set to play the lead role in Zorro Reborn, a sci-fi reimagining of the Zorro mythology that will take place in an apocalyptic wasteland. This futuristic take on the story of the Spanish swordsman will portray him as a masked vigilante fueled by vengeance.

Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy (Harker) have written the script along with Glenn Gers (Fracture), and 20th Century Fox is currently seeking a director for the project.

Zorro was last seen on the big screen in Martin Campbell’s 2005 film The Legend of Zorro, where he was played by Antonio Banderas. The studio behind that film, Sony Pictures, is developing its own reboot of Zorro based on the Chilean author Isabel Allende’s novel about his origin story.

Garcia Bernal will next be appearing opposite Will Ferrell in the Spanish-language comedy Casa de mi Padre, »

Gael Garcia Bernal Is Fox’s ‘Zorro’

16 February 2012 6:54 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Remember Fox’s futuristic reboot of Zorro? Well, in that case: Fox is doing a futuristic reboot of Zorro, entitled Zorro Reborn, which takes the classic character and places him in a post-apocalyptic setting, for reasons that aren’t entirely clear. Harker writers Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy fashioned the script with Glenn Gers (Fracture), one that casts Zorro as “less a caped crusader for justice than a one-man vigilante force bent on revenge.” We learned this ten months ago; we now have a major development.

Variety now tells us that Amores Perros and Y Tu Mamá También star Gael García Bernal will be taking up the sword, cape and mask for Fox as the studio seeks a director. (Back in April, visual effects artist Rpin Suwannath was wanted for the job. That must have not panned out.) But, although not having someone behind the camera is obviously an issue »

Gael Garcia Bernal to Play Zorro in Futuristic 'Zorro Reborn' Reboot

16 February 2012 5:50 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Back in April of last year the Los Angeles Times report 20th Century Fox was looking to bring back Zorro after Antonio Banderas played the character in two films for Columbia Pictures. The only thing was, this wasn't the Zorro we're used to. The film is titled Zorro Reborn and apparently instead of a period piece the film will remain a western, but will be set in a desolate and post-apocalyptic future with echoes of both Sergio Leone and No Country for Old Men. At the time that news surfaced the film was expected to be directed by pre-vis specialist Rpin Suwannath (X-Men, The Matrix) with a script from Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy. Now, Suwannath is no longer attached, Glenn Gers (Fracture) did a rewrite of the script and Variety reports Gael Garcia Bernal will suit up in the lead role. Fox did not confirm the news and has »

Joss Whedon's 'In Your Eyes' Gets Good-Lookin' Leads

15 February 2012 4:45 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David only have eyes for each other.

The two stars are set to get their Peter Gabriel on as they've signed on to play the two leads in writer Joss Whedon's science fiction romance, "In Your Eyes," according to Deadline.

Whedon's low-budget project had been previously described simply as "a metaphysical love story about two seemingly polar opposites who are deeply connected in ways neither could have ever imagined," but with the casting news come more details on the plot, or at least the basic premise.

Michael Stahl-David will play Dylan, a young criminal who served a prison sentence for robbery when he refused to rat on his accomplices and now lives in a trailer in New Mexico. Zoe Kazan, who replaces the previously cast Abigail Spencer, will play Rebecca, an attractive and slightly awkward young woman who's married to an older doctor and lives in Connecticut. »

Use the New Ryan Gosling Channel to Channel Ryan Gosling

6 February 2012 9:13 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

When you're hot; you're hot. And Ryan Gosling is on fire — figuratively, of course.

The 31-year-old thesp is taking cable waves by storm this February, as Time Warner Cable's Movies On Demand channel will feature a whopping eight of the star's most popular movies, The Wrap reports. But wait; there's more.

While scrolling through TWC's movie listings, you may notice a new genre pop up. No, it's not romantic thriller, though we think that has promise, and it's not horror comedy. It's Ryan Gosling.

That's right, Ryan Gosling is now his own movie genre. Not bad for a guy whose big break was "Young Hercules." Seriously, look it up.

Among the Gosling-starrers featured are the Oscar-nominated "Drive" (he's up for the Best Male Lead Independent Spirit Award for that one), "Crazy Stupid Love" (which earned him a Golden Globe Best Actor nomination earlier this year), "The Ides of March" (which »
