Annecy: Chris Meledandri on Matthew McConaughey as a Koala Legit Theater Owner, ‘The Grinch’

17 June 2015 2:42 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Annecy – Matthew McConaughey will voice Buster, a showman entrepreneur koala running a legit theater in Illumination Entertainment’s upcoming music-driven event comedy, Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri revealed Wednesday at an Annecy Fest.

Written-directed by Garth Jennings (“Son of Rambow”), and set for release Dec. 21, 2016, when the movie – that seem still untitled – kicks in, Buster’s theater is empty. To save the theater, Buster comes up with the idea of a local singing competition.

Buster’s best friend, a black sheep, is played by John Riley.

It posits a world entirely inhabited by animals who have jobs and drive cars, Meledandri added.

“The movie ends up becoming the story of the lives of the five characters vying to win the competition,” adding the movie has “parts of about 85 songs,” all known. “But it doesn’t become a story about winning the competition but about character, and that’s ultimately because any »

Will Poulter Will Play 'Pennywise' In New Adap Of Stephen King's It

5 May 2015 5:55 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to Variety, 22-year-old British actor Will Poulter (The Revenant, Son of Rambow, The Maze Runner, The Chronicles of Narnia, We’re the Millers) has been cast as Pennywise the clown in New Line's remake of It, which will be directed by Cary Fukunaga. Tim Curry terrified an entire generation back in 1991 when he played the murderous demon, who disguised himself as a clown to lure children to their doom. Apparently older actors such as Mark Rylance and Ben Mendelsohn were considered initially, but after being blown away by Poulter's audition New Line and Fukunaga decided to go a different route. Fukunaga also penned the screenplay along with Chase Palmer, and Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg will produce through their KatzSmith banner. The plan is to split King's 900 page novel into two films. »

Stephen King's It: Will Poulter is the new Pennywise

4 May 2015 10:31 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Will Poulter is to step into the shoes of Tim Curry, and play Pennywise the Clown in the new take on It...

Arguably the most crucial role in the new movie take on Stephen King's It has been cast - and it's going to be Will Poulter stepping into Tim Curry's shoes.

Poulter is set to take on the role of Pennywise the clown in the new production. According to Variety, Poulter is now in talks for the role, and that his audition for the part left director Cary Fukunaga "blown away" and that he "couldn't say no".

Other names who had been on the shortlist were Ben Mendelsohn and Mark Rylance.

It's arguably the most challenging role to date that Will Poulter has taken on, with the BAFTA-winning actor having previously appeared in projects as diverse as Son Of Rambow, The Maze Runner and We're The Millers. The »

Will Poulter will haunt your dreams as Pennywise in Stephen King's It reboot

4 May 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

22-year-old We're the Millers star Will Poulter will be the cause of many nightmares as he takes on the role of Pennywise in a film reboot of Stephen King's novel It.

True Detective director Cary Fukunaga is plotting a two-part feature film version of King's 1986 story about a demonic clown.

Poulter - a BAFTA Award winner who has appeared in The Maze Runner and Son of Rambow - apparently won the role of Pennywise over older actors Mark Rylance and Ben Mendelsohn.

The young star caught the eye of New Line executives and Fukunaga because of good buzz for his performance in Leonardo DiCaprio's upcoming Western drama The Revenant, reports Variety.

Pennywise was previously played on television by Tim Curry in a 1990 ABC miniseries based on King's 1,138 page horror novel.

Fukunaga's version of It is scheduled to enter production this summer in New York. »

Will Poulter to Play Pennywise in Cary Fukunaga's New 'It' Movies

4 May 2015 2:29 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Watch out Tim Curry. Over at Variety they're reporting that Cary Fukunaga (of Sin Nombre, Jane Eyre, Beasts of No Nation, "True Detective") has cast the lead in his new It feature, which will be split into two movies. Sources have told them that young actor Will Poulter, currently 22 years old, is "in negotiations" to play Pennywise the evil clown. Poulter last appeared in The Maze Runner as Gally, along with A Plea for Grimsby, Glassland, We're the Millers and Son of Rambow. He's also in the upcoming The Revenant, which we'll all be watching this December. Apparently the audition won over Fukunaga and they couldn't say no. We've been following development on this It project for years, but with Cary Fukunaga bouncing all over between major projects after winning the Emmy for directing "True Detective", it's hard to tell if this was happening sooner or later. It now appears sooner might be the case. »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Raiders!’

14 March 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s a good reason why TV and movies have adopted the disclaimer “Remember kids, don’t try this at home.” As inventive as they were impressionable, pint-sized super-fans Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala and Jayson Lamb nearly killed themselves on multiple occasions attempting to remake the first Indiana Jones movie, breaking it down shot-for-shot and filming each scene as best as their limited resources would allow over the course of eight summers. The result has become the stuff of fan legend, inspiring magazine articles, movie deals and what feels like the perfect Hollywood ending, which the geek-bait documentary “Raiders!” reveals for the first time, as the original trio reunite a quarter-century later to finish the airplane scene they deemed too difficult to film as kids. Often poignant, occasionally pathetic, but never short of entertaining, “Raiders!” captures the obsessive hold movies have on young people’s imaginations, as exemplified by such pics as “Son of Rambow, »

Exclusive Interview With Will Poulter For ‘The Maze Runner’ Home Entertainment Release

6 February 2015 2:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

He’s undoubtedly a rising star and Will Poulter is picking all the right projects after landing his first film role at the age of 14 in the critically acclaimed Son Of Rambow, directed by Garth Jennings. In the big-screen adaptation of James Dashner’s successful Young Adult novel The Maze Runner Poulter plays Gally, early inhabitant of the film’s first environment, and complex antagonist of the tale…

How did you feel when you first read the script?

I was really excited about the prospect of being in something that was a true ensemble piece. I think there are strong perceptions about this genre, it appears that people have hard and fast rules about these action-adventure dystopian films; they’re headed up by a young cast and they’re characterized by a lead female, a romantic thread and the world being in tatters.

And actually none of that is the case with The Maze Runner. »

Berlin: Will Poulter to Star Alongside Dakota Fanning in ‘Brain on Fire’

4 February 2015 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin — Will Poulter, whose credits include “We’re the Millers,” will co-star alongside Dakota Fanning in “Brain on Fire,” which Mister Smith Entertainment is introducing to buyers in Berlin.

The film is to be directed by Gerard Barrett, whose “Glassland” just premiered in Sundance to strong reviews. Poulter also stars in “Glassland.” Barrett will direct from his own screenplay, based on the bestselling memoir by Susannah Cahalan. It is the true story of a young woman’s terrifying and sudden descent into insanity as the result of a mysterious illness. Poulter will play the boyfriend of Cahalan (Fanning) in the film.

Poulter made his breakthrough with “Son of Rambow,” and then appeared in “The Chronicles of Narnia: the Voyage of Dawn Treader,” “Wild Bill,” “We’re the Millers” and “The Maze Runner.” He will shortly be seen starring in “iBoy,” and opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “The Revenant. »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Glassland’

1 February 2015 11:06 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The story of an overtaxed taxi driver (wholeheartedly embodied by Sundance acting-award winner Jack Reynor) forced to care for his mother (Toni Collette, even better) while she tries to drink herself into oblivion, the Dublin-set “Glassland” doles out a downbeat serving of kitchen-sink social realism with the sink itself thrown in for good measure, overflowing as it is with empty liquor bottles, dirty dishes and he broken dreams. Once again, “Pilgrim Hill” director Gerard Barrett gravitates toward characters too marginal to garner mainstream interest, while approaching his story with an elegant yet demanding ellipticism that overestimates the audience’s ability (or inclination) to connect the dots.

That’s not to say there isn’t something noble in Barrett’s uncompromised style, which flatters the intelligence of those alert and engaged enough to decipher its clues by dispensing with traditional exposition. Barrett plunges us directly into the septic squalor of Irish public housing, »

Review: Cinema and hope reign in the unique documentary 'The Wolfpack'

26 January 2015 12:56 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City. Serendipity always plays a major role in Sundance scheduling. Yes, we have an elaborate Excel doc with all of our screenings and interviews and naps and meals programmed, but the best Sundance moments are often when you have a two hour block and duck into the yet-to-premiere Ozarks mystery featuring the girl from "The Bill Engvall," or when you trust the buzz from the night before and trudge a mile through a blizzard to see an indescribable drama starring a little kid named "Quvenzhané." As the Yiddish proverb goes, Der mentsh trakht Sundance un got lakht or "Man plans Sundance, God laughs." [Anybody who attempts to correct my Yiddish gets blocked.] So on Sunday night, I went to the far-flung Temple Theater for an evening screening, only to discover a totally different movie was playing and there was no chance I could get to the correct theater in time to see the movie I intended to see. »

5 January 2015 8:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

UK cinema in 2015 has plenty to recommend it. Here are 36 UK films of all genres to look forward to this year…

Dig past the litterfall of Kray Brothers biopics and tales of nubile teens on camping trips gone wrong, and you’ll unearth plenty for the UK film industry to boast about in 2015. From sci-fi romps and thrillers like Robot Overlords and Ex Machina to dramas like High-Rise, comedies like War On Everyone, spy flicks like Spectre and kids’ films like Bill, there’s no shortage of inventive, highly promising cinema coming from these isles.

We’ve included a few choice co-productions in 2015’s pick of the year’s most interesting-looking pictures, which bolsters our list in both size and breadth (and mostly means we Brits can claim partial credit for ace-sounding dystopian flick The Lobster).

In alphabetical order then, here are the 36 UK (or UK-ish) movies we’re excited about seeing this year… »
