The Hallow,” in which a conservationist unleashes demonic forces in the rural Irish forest, premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and was acquired by IFC for the U.S.

Besides “The Hallow,” the Irish director’s credits include the animated short “Butterfly” and music videos for Ed Sheeran, Biffy Clyro, Keane, Paolo Nutini and the Prodigy.

Paramount-based di Bonaventura Pictures has produced the “Transformers,” “G.I. Joe” and “Red” franchises along with “Salt,” “Side Effects,” “Shooter,” “Jack Ryan” and “The Devil Inside.”

Hardy is repped by Wme, Hugo Young at Independent Talent Group, Elevate Entertainment’s Jenny Wood and attorney Fred Toczek. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.

Meet the films sequels that might not be dead, but are certainly stuck in some kind of limbo...

Every now and then, a sequel that appears to have been in the cooker for a while – Zoolander 2, Dumb And Dumber To, Anchorman 2 – finally escapes into the wild. But the journey to the screen can be a very lengthy one, and this little lot are still trying to find their way to your local multiplex…

Dick Tracy 2

Disney gambled hard on bringing Dick Tracy to the screen in the summer of 1990, backing the vision of director and star Warren Beatty, and hoping to ape the success that Warner Bros had enjoyed the summer before with Batman. Yet whilst Dick Tracy hit, it didn’t hit too hard. The studio adjusted its-then blockbuster strategy accordingly, and it wouldn’t really be until it got to the likes of »

Oscars 2016: Variety Critics Pick Who Should Win

24 February 2016 10:51 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oscar night is nearly upon us. Variety critics Justin Chang, Peter Debruge and Guy Lodge don’t get ballots, but if they did, here’s how they would vote in the top eight categories.

Justin Chang

Best Picture: “Mad Max: Fury Road.” Leave it to Hollywood to give its top three guild prizes to three completely different films — “The Big Short,” “Spotlight” and “The Revenant” — and still manage to overlook the best of the lot. No matter: Long after the awards-season dust has settled, “Mad Max: Fury Road” will loom ever larger as the year’s crowning achievement, the sort of auteurist-populist triumph capable of restoring even the most jaded moviegoer’s faith in the system. To watch George Miller’s women-in-the-dunes masterwork is to believe once more in the resilient, resurgent possibilities of franchise fare; in the wisdom of giving someone big honking trucks, flame-throwing guitars and a massive »

Sony Reportedly Firing Up Salt TV Show

15 February 2016 2:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Another day, another movie-to-tv project gaining momentum. On this occasion, it’s the Angelina Jolie-fronted actioner Salt that looks set to swap one medium for another, with Sony allegedly keen to expand the dormant IP in “a completely different way.”

That’s according to Screen Daily, reporting that the studio is shopping the pitch to buyers at the European Film Market. Indeed, it’s the first sign of movement from the Salt camp in some time, after the possibility of a sequel – one to be penned by Kurt Winner and, later, Becky Johnston – quickly faded into obscurity. Now, six years since the original’s theatrical release, Sony is hoping to find better fortune on the small screen.

“We want to bring it to Europe in a completely different way,” said Diego Suarez, Sony’s Vice President Of International Television Production. That’s the only official word on Salt 2, »

'Salt' TV Series In The Works

15 February 2016 11:00 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Since 2010's Angelina Jolie-starring spy thriller "Salt" earned nearly $295 million worldwide, Sony predictably saw franchise potential as such. Kurt Winner, who penned the first film, wrote a draft for "Salt 2" which was apparently turned down by Jolie, and at the end of 2012, “The Prince of Tides” and “Seven Years in Tibet” scribe Becky Johnston was tapped to write another version. But it seems Sony has finally realized no one wants a "Salt" sequel, and are exploring an option that makes a bit more sense in terms of brand extension.
