Biel gives more than 'a Little' to United Artists

24 October 2007 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- Jessica Biel has signed on to UA's Die a Little, based on the novel by Megan Abbott. The film will be a co-production between Richard Gladstein's FilmColony banner (The Nanny Diaries, Finding Neverland, Killshot) and Biel's own Iron Ocean Films.The novel centers around a schoolteacher, and her Lapd detective brother- as their lives are torn apart by the arrival of a mysterious woman. While the book takes place in 1954 Los Angeles, the film will be updated to the present day. Screen writing duo Marcia and Geoffrey Blake are writing the screenplay.This could be a very important project for Biel. We all know that she's an extremely beautiful woman, but so far her onscreen roles have not been that interesting.  She tried to escape her "hot chick" typecasting with the film Home of the Brave, where she played an Iraq war veteran. This sounds like a potentially cool little noir throwback. »

Biel set in UA thriller to 'Die' for

24 October 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Jessica Biel will star in the crime thriller Die a Little for United Artists.

Marcia and Geoffrey Blake, who pitched the project to the actress, are penning the script. FilmColony's Neil Parris will executive produce.

Based on the Megan Abbott novel, "Die" tells the contemporary story of a schoolteacher and her brother, an LAPD detective whose life is turned upside down by a beautiful and mysterious woman (Biel).

Biel, who was last seen in I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, is filming Powder Blue with Forrest Whitaker, Patrick Swayze and Ray Liotta. She is repped by CAA, Management 360 and attorney Karl Austen.

'Superbad' a rare repeat champ in $4 bil season

A bunch of horny teens managed to vanquish a batch of new releases at the North American boxoffice this weekend as the blistering summer moviegoing season slowed down en route to its Labor Day weekend close. Crossing the $4 billion mark, summer 2007 passed summer 2004 to set a record for the season a week before it officially ends.

Sony Pictures' R-rated "Superbad" collected an estimated $18 million to top the chart for the second weekend in a row. It's only the third film this summer to claim the No. 1 spot for two consecutive frames, following the $300 million-plus sequels "Spider-Man 3" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End."

Three of the weekend's new arrivals were clustered around the $10 million mark, with Universal Pictures' comedy "Mr. Bean's Holiday" the most buoyant, finishing in fourth place with an estimated $10.1 million, followed by Lionsgate's "War" at $10 million and MGM's release of the Weinstein Co.'s "The Nanny Diaries" at $7.8 million. Finishing well outside of the top 10 were the Yari Film Group's dramatic "Resurrecting the Champ", Universal's Latino-flavored "Illegal Tender" and Slowhand Releasing's history-based Western "September Dawn".

Even so, the boxoffice registered an improvement over the comparable frame last year for the seventh weekend in a row. According to Nielsen EDI, the top 10's haul of an estimated $85.5 million was up 12% over the comparable frame in 2006, when Buena Vista's football tale "Invincible" topped the list with a $17 million opening.

"Bean" was something of a wild card heading into the weekend. While awareness of the G-rated comedy starring Rowan Atkinson as a pratfall-prone Englishman on holiday was high, it appeared to be the weekend's underdog because definite interest appeared low. But the film, directed by Steve Bendelack, surprised by grossing an estimated $10.1 million from 1,714 theaters, a per-theater average of $5,904. Given that the movie has already collected nearly $190 million internationally, it's all gravy.

"War", video-maker-turned-director Philip G. Atwell's R-rated actioner that pits Jet Li against Jason Statham, ranked third on Friday but shifted to fifth place over the course of the weekend. »

'War' takes field as summer crowds wane

24 August 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The end of the summer moviegoing season hangs just over the horizon, and after a few superheated sessions, the boxoffice could end up taking something of a vacation. While North America's multiplexes will continue to see business from holdovers like last weekend's champ, Sony Pictures' Superbad, this weekend's debutantes, led by Lionsgate's War, are looking to distinguish themselves simply by cresting the $10 million mark.

"War" has the advantage of two marquee names in the action arena -- Jet Li and Jason Statham -- facing off against each other as assassin and FBI agent, respectively. Directed by Philip G. Atwell, who has handled music videos for Eminem and 50 Cent, the R-rated film should get pulses racing among younger males.

Li and Statham have proved themselves $10 million-plus men. Li's 2005 Unleashed and 2006 Fearless bowed to $10.9 million and $10.6 million, respectively, while Statham's Crank opened to a three-day gross of $10.5 million last Labor Day weekend. War, shooting up 2,277 theaters, conservatively should grab $10 million-$12 million and could spike higher.

The Nanny Dairies, on the other hand, will be appealing to female audiences. Selling itself as this summer's equivalent to The Devil Wears Prada, it stars Scarlett Johansson as a nanny struggling to please a forbidding employer (Laura Linney). »

- In today’s 10 piece, we got a trio example of filmmakers who’ve waited a while before making their sophomore induction. There is also a healthy representation of big studio films – not necessarily a sign of the times but perhaps an example of better script/project development. 51*.
