‘Love’ Composer Lyle Workman Talks About Netflix Series’ Eclectic Soundtrack & Jam Session Approach – Awardsline

26 June 2016 3:08 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The first season of Love, the Netflix dramedy series created by Judd Apatow, Paul Rust, and Lesley Arfin and starring Rust and Gillian Jacobs, presents a bittersweet reversal of sitcom conventions while also offering a somewhat rare depiction of Los Angeles as a personality in and of itself. Helping both of those aesthetic aspects along is the score by songwriter Lyle Workman, best known for creating the music for Superbad, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, and The 40-Year… »

[Review] Now You See Me 2

9 June 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

To say that the world of magic or magicians is having a renaissance might be overselling things a bit, but it cannot be denied that films related to the world of magic have appeared with more frequency than one might expect, which is to say at all. The Prestige and The Illusionist kicked it all off and, ironically, served as the artistic peak of the trend. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone made a mockery of its own name and then pulled off its own disappearing act from the popular consciousness. That same year, however, another magician-focused escapade hit theaters, an impish caper film starring four photogenic performers using their skills to become modern day Robin Hoods.

This was Now You See Me, a glossy, special effects-heavy romp that adhered to no sense of reality, but had enough fun and enough cast charisma to paper over a lot of its flaws. It was a boldly self-congratulatory feature, »

Soul Soul Soul will see Murphy re-team with producer Brian Grazer, who was behind such Murphy hits as The Nutty Professor, Life and BowfingerTyler Mitchell (The Incredible Burt Wonderstone) is also producing.

Murphy is returning to the big screen later this year with Mr. Church alongside Britt Robertson (Tomorrowland) and has been linked with the upcoming Richard Pryor biopic Is It Something I Said? »

Benderspink Dissolving Production-Management Company After 18 Years

17 May 2016 2:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

JC Spink and Chris Bender are dissolving their 18-year-old management-production company Benderspink, which has been involved in “The Hangover” trilogy, “We’re the Millers,” “A History of Violence” and “Zombeavers.”

The duo said the split is amicable in a statement issued Tuesday: “We started Benderspink in our late 20s almost 18 years ago. We could not be more proud of what we’ve achieved together and are excited for this next chapter in each of our lives.”

The statement did not elaborate on what they will do next.

Spink focused mostly on management while Bender focused on producing. The company was formed in 1998 after the two had worked as assistants at Zide-Perry Productions, where Bender received a co-producing credit on “American Pie.”

The duo, who met at Bucknell University, had a long-time first-look deal through New Line that launched in 2001. They delivered mid-budget titles such as “Horrible Bosses” and “The Butterfly Effect” franchises, »

Huevos: Little Rooster’s Egg-Cellent Adventure (Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos) movie review: a cock and balls story

16 March 2016 12:37 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Bad chicken-and-egg puns and indoctrination into animal cruelty as just good fun for everyone involved (including the animals). You know, for kids. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos translates into English as A Rooster with Many Eggs. Which doesn’t make any sense: roosters don’t have eggs or lay eggs; hens do that. But of course in Spanish, huevos is slang for “balls”… that is, testicles. So a fair transliteration of the title of this flick is A Rooster with Lots of Balls, or maybe just A Rooster with Balls. Which means that this CGI cartoon — in which the word huevos gets uttered a lot, and which features anthropomorphized eggs with arms and legs and faces and names — was intended to be one long dick joke. You know, for kids. »

Justin Theroux Wrote Zoolander 2, Plus 15 More Actors You Didn't Know Are Also Screenwriters

16 February 2016 2:30 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"That Justin Theroux guy - where do I know him from?" Depending on whom you ask, you could get a great many answers. Of course, he's the husband of Jennifer Aniston, but he's had a string of notable acting roles too. He could be that guy from The Leftovers, the actor who played the hapless director character in Mulholland Drive, Leslie Knope's short-lived boyfriend on Parks and Recreation, or even the bad guy from Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. However, Theroux is also a screenwriter, and he's credited with a handful of major films that casual movie-goers might not associate with him. »

Fast and Furious writer penning Thai prison action thriller Champion

7 February 2016 11:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Storyscape Entertainment and Pioneer Pictures are teaming up for a new action thriller entitled Champion, which will take place in Thailand’s underground prison fighting world.

The project has been written by Gary Scott Thompson, screenwriter behind the original The Fast and the Furious, and “follows the journey of an American locked up abroad who must learn Muay Thai in order to fight for his freedom.” It is said to be based on real events, “exploring a centuries-old tradition within Thailand’s prison system where inmates compete in state-sanctioned Muay Thai tournaments to win early release.”

Champion is being produced by Bob Cooper (Stargate Sg-1), Richard Saperstein (Se7en), Robert Kravis (Lucky Number Slevin) and Tyler Mitchell (The Incredible Burt Wonderstone).
