Alice In Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass Officially Starts Production

4 August 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Disney met with some success in their live-action version of Alice in Wonderland (with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter), and since the film released, talk of a sequel has been on-going.  Now, it's finally moved into production as the cast and crew have gathered together in anticipation of it's May 2016 release.  Disney announced cameras have started rolling with a new cast list confirming both old and new members of the cast coming to the production.  

I wasn't all that thrilled with Alice in Wonderland when it released.  Not that it was a bad movie, I just didn't find it all that special or great.  So it's tough to muster up much enthusiasm for this sequel, despite the impressive cast coming back for it.  From the press release:

See The Epic Movie An 11 Year Old Martin Scorsese Wanted To Make

31 July 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Martin Scorsese is one of those directors who you can tell has a clear vision of what he wants to see up on the screen. While some directors might have vague ideas that eventually are realized within a healthy proximity to the images they want to convey (usually found in post), Scorsese is one of those minds who are not satisfied until every small detail of said vision is on display in meticulous detail. Think back to the opening of Hugo, with the beautiful imagery of Paris leading into a gorgeous, long take sweeping through a crowded train platform . all in gorgeous 3D to boot. That's not an accident, that's the result of carefully planned imagery, which Scorsese has long had a knack for, even when he was only 11. Cinephilia And Beyond reprinted some storyboards that the director of Goodfellas, The Aviator, and The Departed drew up for a grand »

Look at Roman Epic Storyboards By an 11-Year Old Martin Scorsese

30 July 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Today we all know Martin Scorsese as the director of acclaimed films like Hugo, The Wolf of Wall Street, GoodFellas, Taxi Driver, Mean Streets and the Best Picture winning The Departed. But at a young age, Scorsese had a taste for Roman epics, and he actually drew some incredible storyboards to illustrate what his film would look like. These drawings popped up in David Thompson's incredible book Scorsese on Scorsese, but now they've been posted in great quality online. These are super impressive for an 11-year old kid, and what's even more awesome is that at this young age, Scorsese already knew who he wanted to star. Here's 11-year old Martin Scorsese's storyboards from Cinephila and Beyond (via The Playlist): As you can see, the film is called The Eternal City, and the young Scorsese described it as "a fictitious story of royalty in Ancient Rome."

Iñárritu's 'Birdman' to close 2014 New York Film Festival

21 July 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" as the closing night film of the 52nd annual New York Film Festival, rounding up a string of high profile announcements that have included David Fincher's "Gone Girl" as the fest's opening night gala and Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice" as the centerpiece. The selection eschews a recent pattern of slotting world premieres like "Flight" and "Her" to close the fest. "Birdman" opens just six days after Nyff concludes, and this further exposure for the film — which will come after a Venice world premiere and likely Telluride and Toronto showcases — will be a huge boost going into awards season. The announcement also comes after Hollywood trade Variety scooped the festival's protocol with both the opening night and centerpiece selections without getting confirmation from either Nyff or the studios involved.

David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' to open 2014 New York Film Festival

16 July 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Filmmaker David Fincher has been away from the screen for a couple of years, since 2011's "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" threatened to be a major Oscar force but settled for a handful of nods (and a surprising Best Film Editing victory). He's back this year with the Gillian Flynn adaptation "Gone Girl," which could be a major play for Fox as the studio looks to get its awards legs back after hitting a wall with "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" last year. Well, an opening night berth at the 52nd annual New York Film Festival is certainly a great way for the studio to set the stage. It's a nice, and really, expected fit for a few reasons. When Fincher opened the festival four years ago with his critically acclaimed film "The Social Network," that sort of kicked Nyff into gear as new personnel began to see the »

Martin Scorsese Stays Busy as Paramount Targets Awards-Friendly 'Silence' Date

15 July 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

At 71, no one keeps up with the relentlessly energetic Martin Scorsese. Seven months after "The Wolf of Wall Street" opened before earning a Best Picture nomination — and just after his latest documentary, "The New York Review of Books: A 50 Year Argument" premiered as a work-n-progress at the Berlinale ahead of HBO's planned fall theatrical release, his next feature film "Silence" is prepping to start production in Taiwan. Paramount has nabbed Scorsese's long-gestating drama for a planned awards-friendly November 2015 release date, which is no surprise. The studio run by his longtime manager Brad Grey released "Wolf," "Hugo," and "Shutter Island." But "Silence" has never been a commercial sure thing. The director has wanted to tell this story, adapted by Jay Cocks from Shūsaku Endō’s revered 1966 novel about an undercover investigation into a Christian community in »

Martin Scorsese’s Silence Targeted for November 2015 Release Date as Paramount Acquires Distribution

14 July 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Things are firming up for Martin Scorsese’s next film, his long-developed passion project Silence.  The filmmaker has been working on an adaptation of the Shusaku Endo novel for years and is finally gearing up to begin production this year with Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Ken Watanabe, and Liam Neeson set to star, and now Deadline reports that Paramount is in talks to acquire the pic for a planned November 2015 release.  The Silence release date puts the film right in the heart of awards season. The story takes place in 17th century Japan and revolves around two Jesuit priests who face persecution as they search for their mentor and work to spread Christianity.  It’s heady subject matter, but the prospect of Scorsese and the impeccably talented Garfield bringing the film to fruition is extremely exciting.

Martin Scorsese's 'Silence' eyeing November 2015 release after Paramount acquisition

14 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Martin Scorsese's "Silence" is finally making its way to the screen. First announcing his intention to direct an adaptation of the acclaimed Shusako Endo novel in 2007, the Oscar-winning filmmaker has directed a trio of narrative features in the intervening years ("Shutter Island," "Hugo" and "The Wolf of Wall Street") but is now closer than ever to realizing his vision for the book, which was the recipient of Japan's prestigious Tanizaki Prize in 1966. Paramount Pictures has officially acquired U.S. distribution rights to the project -- whose production is being financed by Emmett/Furla/Oasis partners Randall Emmett and George Furla -- for an awards-season release in November 2015, according to a report by Deadline. Starring Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield, Ken Watanabe and Adam Driver and written by Jay Cocks (who previously collaborated with Scorsese on "Gangs of New York" and "The Age of Innocence"), the film will shoot at least partially in Taiwan. »

Martin Scorsese's 'Silence' Goes to Paramount for a November 2015 Release

14 July 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following their successful collaboration on last year's The Wolf of Wall Street, Paramount Pictures has acquired director Martin Scorsese's next project, Silence, slated for release in November 2015.

While a specific release date has not been announced, a number of high-profile projects have already staked November 2015 dates, including Sony's Bond 24 (November 6, 2015), New Line's Friday the 13th reboot (November 13, 2015), Lionsgate's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (November 20, 2015) and Pixar's The Good Dinosaur (November 25, 2015).

Silence, which Martin Scorsese has wanted to make for over a decade, is based on Shusako Endo's novel that follows two Jesuit priests in the 17th Century, who journey to Japan upon learning that their mentor has abandoned the church. They face violence and persecution along their journey in this foreign land. Andrew Garfield stars as one of the priests, with Ken Watanabe portraying his Japanese interpreter. Liam Neeson, Issei Ogata and Adam Driver also star in unspecified roles. »

Paramount in Talks to Acquire Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’

14 July 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount Pictures is in negotiations to buy the U.S. distribution rights to Martin Scorsese’s historical drama “Silence.”

Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Ken Watanabe and Adam Driver are starring with production expected to start in Taiwan later this year. “Silence” is financed by Emmett/Furla/Oasis.

Garfield will star as Father Rodrigues, a 17th-century Portuguese Jesuit who travels to Japan with a fellow priest amid rumors that Rodrigues’ mentor has abandoned the Church. When they arrive, they find the local Christian population driven underground by religious persecution.

Neeson will play a priest who landed in Japan over a decade ago and has gone missing.

Variety reported last year that Garfield had signed to star in Scorsese’s long-gestating adaptation of Japanese novelist Shusaku Endo’s book, regarded as his masterpiece.

The film is produced by Irwin Winkler, Randall Emmett and George Furla and Emma Tillinger Koskoff.
