Why Focus Features is Again Getting a Drastic Reboot

4 February 2016 1:54 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Focus Features’ ongoing identity crisis worsened Thursday, as the specialty unit behind “The Theory of Everything,” “Brokeback Mountain” and “Moonrise Kingdom” underwent its second major management shakeup in less than three years.

Focus CEO Peter Schlessel, who replaced founder James Schamus in 2013, is being ousted as part of a drastic housecleaning by parent Universal Pictures.  The studio is merging the label with Universal Pictures International Productions (Upip), in an attempt to make the unit more global and artistically relevant after a series of highly touted  awards-season pictures such as “The Danish Girl” and “Suffragette” collapsed at the box office. Upip Managing Director Peter Kujawski will now be tasked with being chairman of the global unit.

The bloodletting, which is also resulting in the loss of COO Adrian Alperovich, marketing president Christine Birch and acquisitions chief Lia Buman, seems to be an acknowledgment by Universal’s brass that it erred in »

Edward Parone, Who Directed Edgy Theater in ’60s NYC, L.A.’s Taper, Dies at 90

1 February 2016 1:29 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Director and writer Edward Parone, who was a mentor to many of the promising young playwrights in 1960s New York, including Edward Albee and LeRoi Jones (Amiri Baraka), died at his home in Nambe, New Mexico, on Sunday, January 24 after a short battle with cancer. He was 90.

In what was one of the most fertile periods in American theater, with the emergence of edgy, boundary-pushing playwrights, Parone was an artistic member of New York’s Albee-Barr-Wilder Playwrights Unit, a company devoted exclusively to the development and production of new American plays and an early pioneer of the type of new play development that has since been replicated by nonprofit theaters across the country. During this period, Parone directed the world premiere of LeRoi Jones’ signature play “The Dutchman,” and would go on to nurture playwrights such as Sam Shepard, Lanford Wilson and John Guare.

In 1967 Parone joined Gordon Davidson, artistic »

Nicolas Winding Refn Teams With Bond Writers For Asian-Set Action Thriller, Could This Be 'The Avenging Silence'?

29 January 2016 1:19 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For quite a while now, Nicolas Winding Refn has been talking about "The Avenging Silence," a Tokyo-set movie that would feature a protagonist not unlike the ones played by Mads Mikkelsen in "Valhalla Rising" and Ryan Gosling in "Drive" — a stoic, silent, singularly driven character. And while he has been tight-lipped about any plot details, last summer he revealed that the script was in the works, and added, "I would love to do like a spy movie, something like that." So bear in that mind with this latest development.

Should the film industry really be encouraging people to watch films on their mobiles, tablets and computer screens rather than experiencing them, initially at least, in cinemas?

Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives) declared in Paris that he has no inhibitions about how film fans consume cinema. “There are as many variations in watching movies as there are sexual positions,” he posited rather controversially.

13 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Neon Demon

Director: Nicolas Winding Refn

Writers: Mary Laws, Nicolas Winding Refn

Danish auteur Nicolas Winding Refn, who has since attained cult status thanks to the success of 2011’s Drive (which snagged a Best Director award at Cannes), struck divisive chords with his 2013 follow-up Only God Forgives, which was booed at Cannes and resulted in a documentary about the experience the following year from Refn’s wife, Liv Corfixen (My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn). In a response to critiques of misogyny in his narratives, Refn returns with the Los Angeles set The Neon Demon, a femme centric horror film written by Mary Laws and co-financed by Wild Bunch and Gaumont (explaining its eligibility for our foreign films list). Starring a notable cast consisting of Elle Fanning, Jena Malone, Keanu Reeves and Refn favorite Christina Hendricks, the director describes it as a ‘horror film about vicious beauty,’ concerning »
