6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Aardman Animation alumnus Darren Walsh is set to direct animated feature film “Danny Diamondback,” based on the children’s novella written by Barry Jackson. Jackson has penned the script and will be heading up production design on the project. Kaleidoscope Film Distribution is handling worldwide sales on the pic.

“Danny Diamondback” tells the story of a young rattlesnake with an oversized talent in his tail. When his parents are captured, Danny befriends Tito, a fun-loving cockroach who soon discovers that Danny’s rattle is just the beat he has been missing. Together they form a band. As word of their remarkable new sound spreads, an outdoor concert is proposed.

As the lights fade, Danny shreds his rattle. As his rolls and riffs drift far off into the darkness his parents hear them. Recognizing his unique style, they immediately begin the perilous journey to be reunited with their son.

Cannes: FilmNation Takes Julianne Moore Starrer ‘Wonderstruck’ (Exclusive)

6 May 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Glen Basner’s FilmNation Entertainment has acquired international sales rights to “Wonderstruck,” starring Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams (“Manchester By the Sea”) and child star Oaks Fegley (“Pete’s Dragon”) and reteaming “Carol” director Todd Haynes and producer Christine Vachon at Killer Films.

Their stories will finally intertwine as both children set out on »

Todd Haynes Will Present Half of ‘Wonderstruck’ as a Silent Film

21 April 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The weight of cinema’s history can be deeply felt in the cinema of Todd Haynes, whether he’s taking on various different forms in I’m Not There, something as specific as a single director in Far From Heaven or the structure of a film like Brief Encounter when it comes to his latest feature, Carol. For his next film, Wonderstruck, which is deep into casting, he’s undertaking perhaps his most ambitious homage yet.

His adaptation of the novel by Hugo author Brian Selznick follows a story that oscillates between two deaf children: a boy named Ben in Minnesota, circa 1977, dealing with the death of his mother and a girl named Rose in New Jersey, circa 1927, who ventures to New York to meet her idol, an actress named Lillian Mayhew. According to Deadline, the latter portion of the film will “presented as a silent film in both a »

Half Of Todd Haynes' 'Wonderstruck' Will Be Presented As A Silent Film

21 April 2016 12:29 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For most of his career, Todd Haynes has specialized in intimate dramas and character studies —films that might be small in scale but are shot through with large emotion. However, his next feature "Wonderstruck" promises to be his most ambitious outing yet. While he's once again put some tremendously talented actresses in key roles, namely Julianne Moore and Michelle Williams, the story revolves around children and is split between two time periods. If that isn't enough, Haynes has one more trick up his sleeve.  Read More: Retrospective: The Films Of Todd Haynes Based on the book by "Hugo" author Brian Selznick, the film will be set in in two different time periods and focuses on two children: the 1977 segment revolves around Ben, who runs away from his family in Minneapolis and heads to New York City, and the 1927 scenes feature Rose, a deaf child who plots an escape from her »

Examining Hollywood Remakes: Cape Fear

18 April 2016 8:21 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Our series on remakes continues with a graphic reimagining of a moody suspense thriller from the 1960s. This week, Cinelinx looks at Martin Scorsese’s Cape Fear (1991).

 Both versions of this film have very similar plots—based on the novel “The Executioners” by John D. MacDonald—but the approach of the respective directors are so different that the two films become very distinct. The original 1962 version of Cape Fear is a Hitchcockian suspense drama, while the 1991 remake is more of a slasher film. Both films tell the story of an obsessed ex-con/rapist who manipulates the loopholes of the law in order to stalk a man he hates. It’s interesting to see the same story interpreted so differently.

 The 1962 version starred Gregory Peck, one of the greatest actors of his—or any other—generation, along with Robert Mitchum, who is wonderfully menacing as the villain. It was directed by J. Lee Thompson, »

Michelle Williams Joins Todd Haynes’ ‘Wonderstruck,’ Gary Oldman to Play Churchill, and More

18 April 2016 10:48 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The world may be falling apart, but there’s this much: the wait for Todd Haynes‘ next film will not take us through two presidential elections and whole career arcs for his American contemporaries. With Carol still fresh on our minds, Wonderstruck has added another cast member: joining Julianne Moore is Michelle Williams, who will play the deceased mother of a boy living in Minnesota circa 1977. [Variety]

Based on an illustrated novel by Hugo author Brian Selznick, it also focuses on a girl in New Jersey circa 1927 who ventures to New York to meet her idol, an actress named Lillian Mayhew — presumably Moore’s role. Given the connections between its narrative threads, the film’s already shaping up rather nicely.

Killer Films and Amazon Studios are backing the project.

It’s hardly surprising that a film adaptation of Gay Talese‘s horrifying article The Voyeur’s Motel would move forward within »

Michelle Williams Joins Julianne Moore In Todd Haynes' 'Wonderstruck'

18 April 2016 10:15 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

2016 is marking a bit of comeback for Michelle Williams. After 2013's "Oz The Great And Powerful," she only appeared in one other film, the still unreleased in the U.S. WWII drama "Suite Francaise." But this year she hit Sundance starring in two acclaimed movies, Kelly Reichardt's "Certain Women" and Kenneth Lonergan's "Manchester By The Sea." And now she's adding another big auteur project to her schedule. Read More: Todd Haynes To Direct Adaptation Of 'Hugo' Author's 'Wonderstruck' The actress has joined Julianne Moore in Todd Haynes' "Wonderstruck."

No ‘Silence,’ But Paramount Still Boasts Prestige Power at CinemaCon

12 April 2016 12:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Las Vegas — The oddest note in Paramount Pictures’ CinemaCon presentation Monday night, kicking off four days of footage reveals and seminars at the annual motion picture exhibitors trade show, was the exclusion of Martin Scorsese’s “Silence.” The Oscar-winning director’s latest film, expected to hit theaters this fall, is a presumed awards hopeful on paper. But it didn’t even warrant a mention. Nevertheless, the studio had plenty of prestige potential to show off.

Beginning with a bit of a surprise, Robert ZemeckisAllied was previewed with a solid assemblage of polished footage featuring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. The World War II drama was directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Robert Zemeckis (“Forrest Gump”) from a script by Oscar-nominated writer Steven Knight (“Dirty Pretty Things”). It’s also producer Graham King’s first real play along these lines since his last collaboration with Scorsese, 2011’s “Hugo.” He won the best »

Red Band Trailer for 'Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising' Brings the Funny

7 April 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

2014's Neighbors was a bit of a surprise for most people.

Up until that point, many still had a hard time separating Zac Efron from his High School Musical personality, so seeing him in a comedic role really did a lot to expand the mainstream audience's perception of him.

With the success the film had, a sequel was inevitable. Joining Efron, Rogen, and Byrne this time around is Chloë Grace Moretz, who has long since made her mark on Hollywood with films like Kick-ass, Let Me In, and Hugo.

We've had a couple trailers so far, and from what we've seen, this film is really quite the rehash of the first film. However, this doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing, as it's a vehicle for some pretty funny jokes.

Check out the new red band trailer below!
