'Wonder Woman' Shooting in Italy with 'Interstellar' Cinematographer?

1 September 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, we reported that Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Wonder Woman begins production this fall, but we were never given any specifics about where shooting may take place. During last week's episode of Meet the Movie Press, it was revealed that the superhero adventure has landed a cinematographer, with Interstellar's Hoyte Van Hoytema signing on, while Yahoo! Italy reports that Wonder Woman will be partially shot in Basilicata, Italy. These reports haven't been confirmed at this time, but if shooting is scheduled to commence sometime this fall, we should get confirmation soon.

Hoyte Van Hoytema first made his mark with director Tomas Alfredson's 2008 thriller Let the Right One in, which lead to more high-profile work in The Fighter, Tomas Alfredson's English language debut Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Her and Interstellar. He also served as the Dp on the upcoming James Bond action-thriller Spectre, arriving in theaters »

The underappreciated films of Jesse Eisenberg

27 August 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

To salute the incoming arrival of American Ultra, we salute some underrated treats from Jesse Eisenberg's back catalogue...

When Jesse Eisenberg was announced as Lex Luthor in Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice, it made instant sense. Not because he was bald, not because he looks like or Gene Hackman or anything, but just because he’s one of those actors whose screen presence is so perfectly formed. You know exactly what they’re going for with their Luthor, just by Eisenberg’s name. It’s Mark Zuckerberg vs Superman, the supergod vs the awkward genius.

But that’s not the only big action movie he’s got coming up. First he’s going to be in American Ultra, a unique stoner/sci-fi mash-up where he stars alongside Kristen Stewart (it's released in the UK on September 4th). Eisenberg first really burst into our consciousness in 2009 and 2010, where »

Experts' early Oscar predictions: 'Joy,' 'The Revenant,' Leo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett ...'

25 August 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

After three previous losses in the Oscars' Best Picture race ("Silver Linings Playbook," "American Hustle," "The Fighter"), director David O. Russell is now out front to win for "Joy," according to the collective predictions of 14 experts at Gold Derby. See each expert's individual rankings here. "Joy" has a narrow lead (7 to 1 odds) over "The Revenant" by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (15/2), who prevailed six months ago with victories for Best Picture and Director for "Birdman." However, Inarritu has a slight edge (9/2) over Russell (5/1) to repeat as Best Director and "The Revenant" star, still-Oscarless Leonardo DiCaprio, leads the Best Actor battle (10/3). DiCaprio has a slight edge over recent champ Eddie Redmayne in "The Danish Girl" (4/1).  Strongly ahead to win Best Actress is two-time past Oscar winner Cate Blanchett ("Carol") with 13/5 odds over »

“Joy” is the latest Jennifer Lawrence and David O. Russell project in the Oscar hunt

25 August 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Between Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, it’s undeniable that Jennifer Lawrence and filmmaker David O. Russell have a tremendous thing going. Their working relationship is as strong as any other in the business. I’m of the opinion that they’ve put forward two Oscar worthy projects, one of which was able to get Lawrence an Academy Award for Best Actress (for Silver Linings Playbook). Both times, Russell found himself nominated for Best Director and in either Best Adapted Screenplay or Best Original Screenplay, while the other time Lawrence was up for Best Supporting Actress. That’s a winning formula if ever there was one. Later this year, they’ll attempt to go three for three with Joy, a biographical dramedy that will also be the third time they’ve worked together with Bradley Cooper (who also has been nominated twice, as well as co-starred with Lawrence in »

7 Things We Learned From Quentin Tarantino’s New Interview

24 August 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Quentin Tarantino is never one to hold back his opinion. The acclaimed filmmaker dished on everything from the possibility of another “Kill Bill” installment to his distaste for Cate Blanchett movies and “True Detective” in his interview with New York magazine. And if you ask Tarantino, Ben Affleck is no David O. Russell when it comes to casting films.

The writer-director also teased his upcoming Western thriller, “The Hateful Eight.”

Here are the most interesting tidbits from the colorful interview.

The “Kill Bill” franchise may still have some life in it:

“No, it’s not off the table, but we’ll see.”

Tarantino loved “How I Met Your Mother,” but hated “True Detective” from the get-go.

“The last two shows that I watched all the way were ‘Justified’ and ‘How I Met Your Mother.'”

“I tried to watch the first episode of season one [of ‘True Detective’], and I didn’t get into it at all. »

The annoying part of Quentin Tarantino's new interview

24 August 2015 2:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You may have heard that Quentin Tarantino's new interview at Vulture is entertaining, and that's because it is. He discusses "The Hateful Eight," perceptions about his career and influence, and his opinion of other filmmakers. He's especially keen on David O. Russell. Many Twitter users have said that the Q&A is filled with "truth bombs," and that's sort of true, but it's also filled with tired old biases disguised as brave stances, and one particular quote caused me to twinge in agitation and boredom. "I don’t know if we’re going to be talking about The Town or The Kids Are All Right or An Education 20 or 30 years from now. Notes on a Scandal is another one. Philomena. Half of these Cate Blanchett movies — they’re all just like these arty things. I’m not saying they’re bad movies, but I don’t think most of them have a shelf life. »

14 Potential Relativity Media Buyers Examine Financial Data

21 August 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A bankruptcy court will hear objections Tuesday to the speedy auction of Relativity Media, though lawyers for the company now say they think most hurdles have been cleared. A financial adviser says that a total of 14 would-be bidders have reviewed financial details about the troubled entertainment concern.

The new details were revealed in filings Friday by Relativity’s lawyers, who are pushing for an Oct. 1 auction of the Beverly Hills-based maker of films and television programs.

The Blackstone Group, which is helping lure bidders for the proposed auction, filed a report showing that it has contacted 49 potential “strategic” buyers and 49 potential “financial” buyers. None of the would-be buyers are identified in the report. Of those, six strategic buyers and eight financial buyers had visited a “data room” as of Wednesday afternoon to review confidential financial documents.

Relativity suitors who sign non-disclosure agreements have access to 40,000 pages of documents, Blackstone reported. »

Christian Bale Will Drive Michael Mann’s Ferrari Biopic

21 August 2015 3:52 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Tumblr

It’s not been a stellar year for Michael Mann. Back in February his sprawling cyber-thriller Blackhat was generally ignored, despite the presence of Chris Hemsworth in the lead role and it looked like modern audiences had moved on from the kind of action fare that the veteran is so used to delivering.

But things might be looking up. Mann has long yearned to bring a biopic of Enzo Ferrari to the screen. Now, after almost a decade in development, the film is gearing-up by positioning Christian Bale for the title role.

Enzo Ferrari, as you might imagine, was known for his revolutionary work on sports automobiles. The film, entitled Ferrari, would probably focus on a particular juncture in Ferrari’s epic career, although it could also oversee his life from birth to death (1898-1988). Given that Mann likes to tell big, intricate stories, it would probably be best »

Creditors: Relativity’s Speedy Auction ‘Deeply Flawed’ or a ‘Bait-and-Switch’

12 August 2015 1:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: The hopes of Relativity Media’s senior lenders to conduct a speedy auction of the bankrupt TV- and film-maker or its assets was greeted with a wave of opposition Wednesday. Unsecured creditors objected to the “deeply flawed” sales process, saying in a legal filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan that the process is “on its face inadequate and diminishes the prospect of a robust auction.” A firm that loaned  money for the post-release publicity of Relativity films called the hurried sale a “bait-and-switch.”

The objections poured in before a Wednesday afternoon deadline, in anticipation of a Friday morning hearing before U.S. bankruptcy judge Michael Wiles. Viacom and Netflix also lodged protests. And the exact nature of another objection remains unknown, because another major lender, Manchester Securities Corp., filed its motion under seal, saying it did not want to reveal proprietary information about Relativity. Manchester is a subsidiary of Elliott Associates, »

'The Crow' remake "suspended"

31 July 2015 2:31 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Pinewood Cardiff shoot for Relativity-backed remake put on ice.

Production on the remake of cult classic The Crow has been “suspended”, according to multiple sources close to the film.

Pre-production on the multi-million pound feature, which was due to be the first shot at Pinewood Cardiff, has halted, with crew having vacated the studio this week following months of preparation.

While the latest delay to the anticipated film correlates with the financial woes of the film’s Us backer Relativity Media, a source close to Relativity told ScreenDaily that the company still “intends to move forward with producing and releasing The Crow”.

Staff at Pinewood Cardiff are understood to be awaiting instruction as to the timetable for the troubled remake, which lost Jack Huston as its lead in June, and Luke Evans prior to that.

Replacement cast has yet to be announced on the action-fantasy, set to be directed by Corin Hardy (The Hallow), but crew working »

Relativity Media Files Bankruptcy; Film and TV Units for Sale

30 July 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Relativity Media — the digital-age entertainment company that claimed clever financing and data analysis could help it unlock the secret to box office riches — filed for bankruptcy protection Thursday against a swarm of disgruntled investors and other creditors. The 11-year-old company that founder Ryan Kavanaugh had styled as a “next-generation global media company” will be sold at auction, a statement from the company said.

The upcoming sale will center on the enterprise’s film and television units. Left outside of the insolvency action are Relativity Sports; Relativity EuropaCorp Distribution, a joint venture with the European film operator; and Relativity Education. All those units will continue on as independent concerns. The company’s fashion operation, M3/Relativity, was shut down this week and its employees laid off Wednesday as part of a pinkslipping of 75 employees.

Kavanaugh and his board proposed the immediate auction of  the company, which stated liabilities of up to $1 billion, »
