Dustin Lance Black and Leonardo DiCaprio Are Bringing a Charles Lindbergh Biopic to TV

17 July 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Going down the biopic route once more, scribe Dustin Lance Black ("J. Edgar," "Milk") has signed a deal to pen a limited series following the life of intrepid aviator and explorer Charles Lindbergh. Based on A. Scott Berg’s Pulitzer-awarded biography "Lindbergh," the series will, in the words of executive producers Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Killoran, “explore Lindbergh's true past.” (This is a way of saying that, surprise, the endeavor will put equal light on his public heroism as well as his anti-Semitism.) Berg and Kevin McCormick will co-produce.  According to Black, Lindbergh is “far from perfect,” yet nevertheless strived to “rectify the unseen ramifications of what the world still considers his greatest successes.” It's early days on this one, as word on casting, directorial involvement, network, start dates, and so on is forthcoming. Black will pen the series, originally a Paramount film project, for Paramount TV »

Dustin Lance Black to Write Lindbergh Biopic for Paramount TV

17 July 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dustin Lance Black will pen a television adaptation of A. Scott Berg’s biography “Lindbergh” for Paramount Television, the studio announced today.

Described as a limited series event, the show will chronicle the life of pilot Charles Lindbergh from his rise to, and struggles with, the celebrity he encountered after flying the Spirit of St. Louis solo from New York to Paris in 1927.

“The life of Charles Lindbergh is one of the most cinematic stories of the last century — one in which he was cast as a legendary hero, victim, and villain,” author Berg said in a statement.  “I’m thrilled that Lance Black — with his passion for history on top of his great talent — will be transposing the story to the screen, giving full scope to the unexpected personal drama as well as the dazzling public spectacle of this unique life.”

Dustin Lance Black And Leonardo DiCaprio Team For Lindbergh TV Series

17 July 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

TV miniseries are all the rage these days, from Fox’s 24: Live Another Day to FX’s Fargo, and it’s not hard to see why. The ability to play a story out across a whole season allows writers and directors to toy with convention and pursue ambitious plots that just wouldn’t work as well on the big screen, while the limited episode count and commitment attracts big name stars like Halle Berry (on CBS’s Extant) and Matthew McConaughey (who did a one-season run on ‘anthology series’ True Detective, which is basically a set of self-contained miniseries from the same showrunner). Now, Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black (Milk) has become the latest Hollywood talent to contract the miniseries bug, and will be adapting Scott Berg’s Pulitzer Prize-winning biography Lindbergh for Paramount Television.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Killoran and Kevin McCormick are all set to produce the miniseries, »

16 July 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Taking advantage of the power of online media, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is opening up and sharing. Their new web documentary series “Academy Originals” uses “the expertise of the organization’s more than 6,000 members” to focus on the creative process, seminal moments in film history, and what drives some of these talented people. Of the first batch, screenwriters should pay close heed to "Milk" writer Dustin Lance Black's tutorial on how to write a screenplay. Brilliant. Check it out below. Another that’s bound to receive attention is “Let’s Go to the Movies," featuring always sharp Patton Oswalt. He's trying to figure out one title from the Academy Archive to screen. After he picks one, he chats about his choice--an under-appreciated film noir--with comedian Karen Kilgariff. “Not Much to See” explores various relationships the blind have with cinema, and, in turn, the positive impact Descriptive Video. »

Zachary Quinto And Emma Roberts Join James Franco In Michael

15 July 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The fascinating New York Times article “My Ex-Gay Friend” by Benoit Denizet-Lewis is being turned into a movie, with James Franco playing the gay-leader-turned-Christian-pastor Michael Glatze, and if Franco’s involvement in the project, titled Michael, wasn’t exciting enough, now we’ve learned that actors Zachary Quinto and Emma Roberts have also signed on for supporting roles.

Michael centers on the unusual life of Glatze, a Christian minister from Wyoming who actually founded a gay youth magazine before eventually rejecting his own homosexuality and becoming vocally opposed to gay rights. Quinto will play Glatze’s former boyfriend, while Roberts (who recently starred with Franco in the excellent Palo Alto) will be playing his girlfriend. Chris Zylka, currently starring on HBO’s The Leftovers, is on board as another past love interest of Glatze’s.

10 Criterion Documentaries You Should Buy This Month

12 July 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Few things are more exciting for hardcore cinephiles than the semi-annual Barnes and Noble Criterion sale. For a few precious weeks a year, super high-quality Blu-Rays of obscure and influential classic films are on the relative cheap. Most noteworthy: they look really, Really pretty.

Most Criterion-heads are lining up to pick up A Hard Day’s Night, Red River, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and other newer (fiction) releases—as they should because they’re all awesome releases. But how about a little love for the documentary?

Maybe you don’t think docs have a ton of rewatch value, and maybe you’re right in some cases. Criterion’s A+ supplements and video quality—not to mention the timelessness of the films they choose—ought to be enough to sway you in the right direction. But if they aren’t, we’re diving a little deeper into ten of the best Criterion documentaries ever. »

Gus Van Sant Replaces Shane Black as Director of Death Note

9 July 2014 5:53 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Three years ago, it was revealed that Warner Bros hired Shane Black (Iron Man 3) to direct a live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga series "Death Note." But Black has recently signed on to direct a "Predator" sequel, and in the process, dropped out of "Death Note." The studio quickly started looking for his replacement, and now comes word that Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Milk) has signed on to direct. "Death Note" revolves around Light, a bright student who stumbles across a mystical notebook that has the power to kill any person whose name he writes in it. Light decides to launch a secret crusade to rid the streets of criminals. Soon, he finds himself pursued by a famous FBI criminal profiler known only by the alias L. »

Oscar Winner Dustin Lance Black's Screenwriting Process Will Make You Feel Very, Very Lazy

9 July 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

There is no one way to write a screenplay. Some people go to a coffee shop every morning and try to bang out pages. Some put a bunch of sticky notes on a wall and stare at it all day. And then there's Dustin Lance Black, whose method is so exhaustive you will probably get tired just thinking about even attempting it. Black won an Oscar in 2009 for Best Original Screenplay for Milk, the Sean Penn-starring biopic about openly gay politician Harvey Milk, and a new video explores the meticulous process he goes through when preparing to write a screenplay. It starts with gathering research, which is hardly a surprise considering Black is known for his historical biopics, but from there he enters a labyrinth of note cards that will make your head spin. This obviously isn't...

‘Death Note’: Shane Black Out, Gus Van Sant In As Director?

9 July 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Shane Black and Gus Van Sant couldn’t be more different as filmmakers. Black is a pillar of pop culture cheekiness, known for sticking jokey asides into his screenplays and mining glib wisecracks out of pulpy genre fare (ranging from Lethal Weapon, to his directorial debut, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, to last year’s Iron Man 3); he’s also obsessed with Christmas. Van Sant, meanwhile, takes himself more seriously, outputting a fluctuating mix of topical neo-realist dramas (Elephant), biopics (Milk, Last Days), and hits like Good Will Hunting, with occasional disasters such as Psycho sprinkled in between.

So the idea of Black jumping ship on a project and handing the wheel over to Van Sant seems kind of ...

However, it seems that things may be back on track, as it's being reported that MilkGood Will Hunting and Paranoid Park director Gus Van Sant is now set to take on the film.

Death Note tells the story of a student who happens upon a strange notebook. By writing the name of someone in the book, he can instantly kill them.

Gus Van Sant Will Direct Anime Adaptation 'Death Note'

8 July 2014 6:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Gus Van Sant has signed on to direct an adaptation of the Japanese manga Death Note, which has been languishing in development at Warner Bros. for several years now.

Back in January 2011, Shane Black signed on to direct from a script by Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry, but we never heard anything else about the project until now. The Tracking Board reports that the most recent script was written by Shane Black, Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry, and that Shane Black was still attached to direct up until 2013, which is, coincidentally, when his blockbuster Iron Man 3 hit theaters.

Death Note is based on the Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, which follows a young student who finds a bizarre notebook. He discovers that he can kill anyone instantly simply by writing their name in the notebook, as an FBI agent starts tracking him when the bodies keep piling up. »
