Cary Fukunaga in talks for Atomic Bomb drama Shockwave

19 February 2017 8:10 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Deadline, director Cary Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation) and screenwriter Hossein Amini (Drive) are in talks with Universal Pictures for an adaptation of Stephen Walker’s non-fiction book Shockwave: Countdown to Hiroshima. Here’s the official description of the book:

On a quiet Monday morning in August 1945, a five-ton bomb—dubbed Little Boy by its creators—was dropped from an American plane onto the Japanese city of Hiroshima. On that day, a firestorm of previously unimagined power was unleashed on a vibrant metropolis of 300,000 people, leaving one third of its population dead, its buildings and landmarks incinerated. It was the terrifying dawn of the Atomic Age, spawning decades of paranoia, mistrust, and a widespread and very real fear of the potential annihilation of the human race.

Author Stephen Walker brilliantly re-creates the three terrible weeks leading up to the wartime detonation of the atomic bomb—from the first »

Cary Fukunaga to Tell Story of Hiroshima with ‘Shockwave’; Sam Raimi Eyes Bermuda Triangle Picture

17 February 2017 11:43 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Continuing his “auteurist TV here, prestige picture there” pattern, Cary Fukunaga may follow Beasts of No Nation and forthcoming Netflix series Maniac with a recounting of the Hiroshima bombing — an ambitious-sounding project in no small part because it’s taken after such a comprehensive piece of material. Per Deadline, he’s conspiring with scribe Hossein Amini (Drive) for an adaptation of Stephen Walker’s Shockwave: Countdown to Hiroshima, likely with a title reduced to Shockwave, and Universal would be footing the bill.

Walker’s non-fiction text covers a lot of ground, spanning the viewpoints of soldiers on either side, Japanese civilians affected to the blast, members of the Manhattan Project, President Truman in the weeks leading up to the Enola Gay’s flight, and those connected to these parties. How to fit that into a standard-length project and do everybody justice? I don’t know, but then again, I’m »

Screenwriter Hossein Amini, who wrote “Drive,” “Snow White and the Huntsman” and “47 Ronin” will write the script for the film. The book “Shockwave” focuses on the three weeks leading up to August 6, 1945, the day the U.S. dropped the atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima during World War II. The story is told from the perspective of the scientists who worked on the bomb, pilots in the war, and Japanese victims.

Erik Baiers, executive vice president of production at Universal, will oversee the project.

True Detective’s Cary Fukunaga To Tackle Shockwave For Universal

16 February 2017 9:39 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything from Cary Fukunaga. After delivering an explosive first season of HBO’s True Detective back in 2014, he then gave us the equally impressive Beasts of No Nation the year after. Since then, however, the filmmaker has been lying low, so it seems, while attempting to find his next project. He was attached to direct Stephen King adaptation It at one point, but that ultimately fell through, and now, Deadline reports that he’ll tackle Shockwave for Universal.

Based on Stephen Walker’s non-fiction novel, Shockwave: Countdown To Hiroshima, the project will be penned by Drive scribe Hossein Amini and produced by Working Title FilmsTim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Liza Chasin. For those unfamiliar with the source material, it tells the story of the “events that led up to a Monday morning in August 1945 when a five-ton bomb—dubbed Little »

Newswire: Cary Fukunaga is directing a movie about the bombing of Hiroshima

16 February 2017 6:29 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

True Detective’s Cary Fukunaga is working on a project about a device that can leave pretty much anything—not just time—as a flat, rubble-strewn circle: the atom bomb. Deadline reports that Fukunaga, whose past credits include Sin Nombre and Beasts Of No Nation—has signed on to direct Shockwave, an adaptation of Stephen Walker’s non-fiction book about the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima.

Walker’s book looks at the bombing—which killed 300,000 people in the initial blast—from numerous perspectives, from the people who built the weapon, to the president who ordered its use, to the people whose lives it took. Hossein Amini—best known as the screenwriter for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive—will work to distill Walker’s far-flung atomic narrative into a script.

Firefly: Fox Is Open To A Reboot!! With One Small Caveat

10 February 2017 7:56 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

If you are a super sci-fi geek, loved Battlestar Gallatica or Star Trek: Deep Space 9, then you may have worshiped a "one year show" before it was cancelled called Firefly. I can say that I actually did not like the first two shows mentioned (please don't ignore everything I say going forth due to the Battlestar comment), but I was obsessed over Firefly. The show had great actors; Alan Tudyk was wonderful (check him out in Powerless), and the story was stellar. I was elated when Serenity was made for the big screen, but I was left wondering if the franchise would ever have a future.

As it turns out, according to Fox, there just may be a chance.

We know that this is considered one of the best sci-fi adaptations ever created, which Joss Whedon helmed, and it starred Nathan Fillion as Capt. Reynolds, Alan Tudyk as Wash, »

Insights: What Will 5-Year-Old Luke Be Watching In 10 Years? Probably Nothing Viacom.

10 February 2017 5:27 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Mop-headed Luke had just turned 5 a couple of weeks ago when I ended up standing in a Starbucks line next to his mother. I began wondering what, and where, and how, a kid like that will be watching video entertainment a few years from now.

Luke is part of Generation Z, the giant cohort of kids growing up right now, a cohort even bigger than the Millennials. And everyone’s scrambling to reach these kids as they head toward an even bigger role than the Millennials in shaping our dominant culture and tech. Normally, seeing a cute kid capering in a coffee shop doesn’t cartwheel my mind into the future. But I’d simultaneously been texting with a producer pal of mine, Max Gottlieb, about the fast-changing market for film and TV.

Back in October, Max premiered an ultra-low-budget movie chock full of influencers part of a promising new »

Nicolas Winding Refn to direct Amazon series Too Old To Die Young

9 February 2017 11:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was only last month that a report came out regarding Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn’s next feature, but now news has broken that Refn is to work on an entirely different project for Amazon.

The man behind Drive and Only God Forgives is set to direct a new a crime thriller in the vein of Refn’s early work on his Pusher trilogy.

The series will be called Too Old To Die Young, and Refn will write, direct and produce the project.

Reported in Variety, the show will focus on the criminal underworld of Los Angeles and will explore “various characters’ existential journeys from being killers to becoming samurai’s in the city of angels”.

The venture is bound to be a stylish affair – given Refn’s neon soaked history – and makes sense given the two parties partnership over the director’s last film The Neon Demon.

8 February 2017 1:18 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In following up his divisive Los Angeles-set thriller The Neon Demon, it was thought that Nicolas Winding Refn would be headed to Tokyo to shoot his crazy-sounding Yakuza actioner The Avenging Silence. Unless he finds time to sneak that in over the next few months, it looks like it has been put on the backburner as his new project has just been announced.

Variety reports the Drive director will be staying in the City of Angels for a new crime series drama titled Too Old to Die Young. Reteaming with Amazon, who distributed his Elle Fanning-led film last summer, Winding Refn is co-writing the project with executive producer Ed Brubaker and plans to direct all ten episodes. Check out the synopsis below.

‘Dark Night’ Director Tim Sutton on Violence in America and the State of Indie Film

6 February 2017 9:49 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Tim Sutton is a filmmaker with a distinct visual style, which he brings into the heart of the gun control debate with Dark Night, an entrancing, terrifying exploration of the moments before a horrible event. Following multiple characters living in a Florida town, Sutton paints an American portrait that feels doubly relevant following last year’s election and everything that’s come since. The Film Stage had an earnest conversation with the writer/director about the the business of indie film, how politics affect art and how one casts a film so it feels authentic to the story being told.

The Film Stage: When you jump into a project like this, what’s the research process like?

Tim Sutton: So, research-wise I really tried to limit myself. People have asked if I’ve talked to a lot of people in Aurora or in Denver, and I did not. The work is purely fiction, »

Gerard Butler joins Snow Ponies

5 February 2017 10:11 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 6, 2017

Gerard Butler is to headline a new action movie by the name of Snow Ponies...

Whilst work continues developing a third film in the Olympus Has Fallen series, Gerard Butler is set to busy himself in a new action movie, Snow Ponies. This one’s written by Pat Healy, and the script for it made the 2006 Blacklist of the best unproduced screenplays. The movie is now set to press ahead, with Darrin Prescott directing. It’ll be his directorial debut, following lots of second unit work on the likes of Captain America: Civil War, John Wick and Drive.

Snow Ponies tells the story of seven hardened men (it says here), as they travel across an unpleasant terrain to deliver a package. No idea what the package is, and seemingly, neither do they. Their journey is punctuated by encounters with bandits and assorted obstacles. And they must choose between loyalty to each other, »

Film Quality Is Subjective: A Film Is Good Because We Say It Is

5 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Graeme Robertson on why film quality is subjective…

It’s a wonderful job being a film critic. Being able to watch films and write about them all hours of the day and night, discussing them with your fellow critics and generally have a merry old time talking about how wonderful it is to be a film critic.

Although when we disagree on something that’s when the fights start, with critics climbing into the steel cages ready to defend the honour of the films that they proclaim to be the best against the wretched scum who think otherwise.

Or something a bit less dramatic than that, like a polite discussion or a particularly stern talk over a pint or two.

Recently my Flickering colleague Samuel Brace penned an article (which you should all read by the way) in which he argued that with regards to films, “Quality is very much objective. »
