Objective founder departs for film career

18 September 2014 3:14 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Co-founder of UK production company behind Peep Show and Fresh Meat to target horror film-making.

Objective ProductionsMichael Vine has stepped down as a director of the company he co-founded to concentrate on a career in movie production.

Vine, who set up the All3Media-owned indie alongside Andrew O’Connor in 1996, told Screen’s sister magazine Broadcast that although it was “emotional” to leave Objective, it was the right time to step aside.

“I leave it in the hands of Andrew Newman. When he came here [in 2009] I had to pinch myself because working with such a talent was a privilege,” said Vine.

“I think things will only get better under Discovery and Liberty. To be owned by people sympathetic to what you do is a real advantage, as opposed to faceless men of the city.”

Vine’s first feature film, western/horror hybrid Blood Moon, was premiered at Film4 FrightFest in August. Vine produced »

International Football: England v Denmark

7.30pm, ITV

International friendlies can seem like a distraction at the best of times, let alone when domestic and European competitions are reaching their sharp ends. Yet for Roy Hodgson this looks a key fixture - one of only four before the World Cup begins in June, and against one of the strongest teams not to qualify for the tournament. Denmark's squad features plenty of familiar faces, including Spurs star Christian Eriksen and much-derided Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner. Gwilym Mumford

Left For Dead By The Yorkshire Ripper

8pm, Channel 5

Between 1975 and 1980, Peter Sutcliffe, Aka The Yorkshire Ripper, murdered 13 women with a knife, a screwdriver and a hammer – and attempted to kill seven more. »

‘Batman Vs Superman’ Costume Designer Talks Wonder Woman

4 March 2014 1:36 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Superhero costume designer extraordinaire Michael Wilkinson has begun whipping up a Wonder Woman frenzy with snippings about her costume and – you can all breathe a sigh of relief – it looks like it’s going to be “gladiator style”.

“You just have to look at the gladiators from ancient Rome – they did their thing in little loincloths, a spear and a shield” he said.

Speaking about the “thrilling and scary” design process, Wilkinson explained that he had conducted a large amount of research into Wonder Woman’s wardrobe so far, before coming up with a new take on the outfit that’s relevant for today. “It’s so important to get her right,” he explained.

Wilkinson, whose sartorial skills won him an Oscar nomination for The Real Hustle, also designed the new Batsuit and is tweaking Superman’s outfit for the forthcoming Batman Vs Superman, which sees Gal Gadot taking on the role of Wonder Woman. »
