The HeyUGuys Interview: Zeke & Simon Hawkins on directorial debut, We Gotta Get Out Of This Place

14 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Brothers Hawkins have arrived on the scene with a loud bang that could be seen as an ode to a favourite weapon of choice in the crime genre. Now as their feature directorial debut, We Gotta Get Out of This Place, makes its way into UK cinemas, HeyUGuys had the opportunity to lightly interrogate the filmmaking duo, as they shared with us their thoughts on the creative process and the first film in their directorial canon.

Why a career in filmmaking? Was there that one inspirational moment?

Zeke Hawkins: We grew up at the movies. Whilst our parents were trying to deal with having two boys, we would go to the cinema four times a week throughout our childhood. So we have always loved movies. In terms of a seminal moment, I remember when I was eighteen and I first saw Steven Soderbegh’s Out of Sight. It »

12 August 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

James Franco Goes Blonde for Gus Van Sant's New Movie (Photo)

12 August 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If we can say anything about James Franco, it's that he knows how to promote his smaller projects with aplomb. He posted a few snaps of his new blonde hairdo to Instagram, and instantly the Internet is abuzz with news about his role in the new movie "Michael." The award-winning Gus Van Sant is an executive producer on the project, which is about a gay journalist named Michael Glatze who becomes an "ex-gay" pastor. In the movie, Michael quits the magazine he co-founded, "Young Gay America," breaks up with his boyfriend (played by Zachary Quinto), and marries a woman (Emma Roberts).

Although Van Sant is "only" the executive producer, having his name attached is no small deal. He's directed numerous influential movies with award-winning performances, including "My Own Private Idaho," "Good Will Hunting," and "Milk," so if even one of Franco's social media fans takes it upon themselves to investigate his work, »

Emile Hirsch To Star In Just Jim For Craig Roberts

30 July 2014 4:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The name Craig Roberts has been high on the list of promising film talent ever since he took the screen by storm in Richard Ayoade’s film, Submarine, in 2010. That role brought with it well-deserved recognition, and a slew of varied offers, including The Double, Bad Neighbors and 22 Jump Street. Now, Roberts is turning all that good will into tangible opportunities behind the camera, by beginning pre-production on his own directorial debut at the tender age of just 23 – Just Jim.

Written by Roberts himself, Just Jim features the lead character realizing that he will be considered part of the socially acceptable group of teenagers, if he can successfully negotiate with his handsome and mysterious American neighbour. While Roberts is expected to play the lead, Emile Hirsch has been cast in the role of his neighbour. The cast is rounded out by Aneirin Hughes (Young Dracula), Nia Roberts (Doctor Who), Richard Harrington »

Production Begins on Gus Van Sant’s Sea Of Trees Starring Matthew McConaughey, Ken Watanabe, and Naomi Watts

30 July 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

"The McConaissance" continues as Gus Van Sant’s new project Sea of Trees starts shooting today.  As you may have guessed, the film stars Matthew McConaughey as well as Ken Watanabe and Naomi Watts.  Penned by Chris Sparling, the story follows a man who enters the “Suicidal Forest” at Mount Fuji with the intention of taking his own life.  When he is interrupted by a Japanese man who is having second thoughts about his own suicide, the two “begin a journey of reflection and survival.” This sounds exactly like the kind of film I feel Van Sant should be doing and it makes me glad that 50 Shades of Grey dalliance ended for him when it did.  Hit the jump for the full press release on Sea of Trees starting up.  The film will shoot on location in Massachusetts and Japan with no release date set as-of-yet. Here’s the press release: Bloom, »

Spotlight on the Stars: James Franco

30 July 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Howdy ladies and gentleman For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to go ahead and take a look at a rather unique A-lister. Someone who vacillates between humongous Hollywood blockbusters and odd little independent films, always doing his own thing. The A-lister in question? None other than James Franco. He’s many things to many people, but he’s unquestionably a star. He’s given a few incredibly good performances, but he’s never a boring actor to watch. He’s easily one of Tinseltown’s most interesting actors to follow. Almost constantly engaging in some form of art, Franco is at his core, just that…an artist. He may be a bit of a weirdo to some, but he’s an A-lister regardless and deserves this tribute. Franco wasn’t always considered a “weird” star. He got his start basically as a heartthrob. He first came on to »

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. »
