Tom Rothman’s TriStar Productions has acquired the worldwide rights and given the go ahead to Money Monster, a fast-paced, character-driven thriller written by Jamie Linden. Daniel Dubiecki, who worked with George Clooney on Up In The Air, and Lara Alameddine developed the script along with Jodie Foster, who will direct the film. Dubiecki and Alameddine’s The Allegiance Theater will produce together with Clooney and his Smokehouse Pictures partner Grant Heslov. Alan Difore and Jim Kouf wrote the original draft of the script.
Principal photography is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2015.
Clooney stars as Lee Gates, a bombastic television stock huckster, whose program (the titular “Money Monster”), and life, are taken hostage by an outraged gunman. As much of the world watches live, Gates must keep himself alive and, with help from the woman who produces the show, uncover the truth behind a tangle of big money lies. »

Justice League: Reportedly, Warner Bros. wants Chris Terrio, who won an Oscar for Argo and recently completed script work on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, to write the screenplay for Justice League. Terrio was brought on to Batman v Superman after David S. Goyer (Batman, Man of Steel) became "too busy" with other projects to do another rewrite, and now Warner Bros. wantsTerrio to get its next important superhero team-up off to a good start.

All good things must come to an end at some point. Yes folks, this is the final installment of this series of mine, and as such, it’s (hopefully) a bit of a doozy…the Best Picture field. Without a doubt, this is the big one, so it’s the one where the list will be the most important and I hope interesting to look at as well. Obviously, I could go on and on in preparation right now, waxing poetic and teasing, but at this point I know how the game works here for everyone. You all just want to see the lists that I do anyhow, so I have no problem obliging you good people there in that particular regard one more time. All you have to do is just be patient over the next paragraph or so and you’ll get the goods front and center for your reading pleasure… »

Late in last night's episode of AMC's "Halt and Catch Fire," the show's hero, computer salesman Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace), tries to dismiss a competitor who's never experienced the joy of creating something(*). Joe's rival points out that they're both in the computer compatible business, just trying to copy Ibm, and therefore neither can brag much about their flair for originality. (*) As you might expect, this column will have some spoilers for the season to date. Having apparently bested Joe with his own portable Ibm clone, he says, "You tried to be good. We just had to be good enough." It was one of many meta exchanges in the penultimate season 1 episode of "Halt," a series that has not only been reverse-engineered from past cable drama hits, but that seems acutely aware of that fact. So Joe is essentially a 1983 version of Don Draper: a mystery man in expensive suits »

Warner Bros may not have officially announced Justice League at Comic-Con over the weekend, but it's still a live DC project, that Zack Snyder will be tackling once he's done with Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
One detail about the film did come to light over the weekend, though, and that's the identity of the person who's set to write it. Chris Terrio, who snagged an Oscar for his Argo screenplay and who also worked on the current Batman V Superman project, has apparently been hired to tackle a Justice League screenplay. Inevitably, there aren't too many more details than that at the moment. But his appointment is apparently down to the quality of the work he did on the Dawn Of Justice script.
Apparently, Warner Bros. liked what the screenwriter of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice did so much that they want to hire him to write Justice League as well. The writer's name is Chris Terrio, and he also wrote Ben Affleck's Argo, which had a fantastic script. The guy is obviously talented, and it gives me hope that Batman v Superman will be much better than Man of Steel. After the footage that I saw yesterday my excitement level for this film has shot up tremendously.
If makes complete sense that they would want to hire him, especially since he's already engulfed himself in that DC cinematic universe. He knows the characters, settings, and story, and he basically helped in the process of developing this universe.

If you weren’t present at Hall H on Saturday morning to witness the first footage from Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. The quick teaser premiered to screams and rapturous applause at the San Diego Comic-Con, and has thankfully leaked online for your viewing pleasure. It’s obviously not the best quality, and will likely get taken down before too long, but if you’re dying to see this footage and couldn’t make it to Comic-Con this year, now’s your chance! Check it out in all its blurry glory below while you still can…

Earlier today director Zack Snyder kicked off Warner Bros.’ Hall H presentation at the San Diego Comic-Con by dropping our first look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as well as screening some footage from the eagerly-anticipated film. You can see the Amazon Princess and read a description of said footage here, and take a look at an image of the three posters for Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman here, but now we have what is said to be a leaked image from the footage, which shows Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight in his armored Batsuit, complete with white eyes…
Update – And here’s a couple more, along with a Man of Steel who looks like he means business…

Warner Bros. has just kicked off its Hall H panel at the San Diego Comic-Con with a huge surprise as Zack Snyder took to the stage to introduce footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice; meanwhile, he also introduced the Trinity of Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, as well as giving us our first look at Gadot in full costume as the Amazon Princess. And here she is…
Here’s a description of the footage via Coming Soon…
We’re seeing 3D renders of Batman and Superman! Not actual footage, but painted concept art rendering in 3D. Very Frank Miller looking. It was pretty quick, ending with the Dawn of Justice logo. Zack Snyder has taken the stage! He says he couldn’t be happier with the way production is going at the moment. Batman is standing on a Gotham rooftop in the rain. His costume isn »

Warner Bros. blew the roof off Comic-Con immediately by bringing director Zack Snyder out to Hall H, introduced with some awesome concept art in motion from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The footage shown was a teaser that seemed shot specifically for the convention with Ben Affleck decked out in a bulky, metal batsuit reminiscent of Iron Man, turning on the bat signal. And that's where Superman (Henry Cavill) shows up in the sky, floating down to a rooftop, flaring his heat vision eyes. But in addition, we also got to see a quick shot of concept art of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and she looks great. Look! Here's Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice from Warner Bros: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is directed by Zack Snyder (Man of Steel, 300) and written by Chris Terrio (Argo) with a story from »

After teasing the suit late last week and revealing Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman (see here), we now have the first full shot of Ben Affleck’s Batsuit for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice… okay, well not quite, as a photoshopped image has been doing the rounds on Twitter via the Shh forums, but it does give us an idea of what to expect when we do finally get a full colour image of Affleck in the suit. Minus the chin, of course…

2014 has already seen some very good films released, with the likes of Boyhood, The Fault in Our Stars, X-Men: Days of Future Past and others doing great business and turning heads in the process. The remainder of 2014 will also see a large number of film releases, and some of those are highly intriguing. Let’s take a look at ten of the films that I, personally, am excited for in the second half of 2014.
Director, James Gunn, tasselled my hair playfully when he put a little independent film named “Super” on the table in 2010, an underrated Rainn Wilson fronted comedy drama about a guy who thinks that god is telling him to fight crime. When I heard that Gunn was bringing his sense of humour and action to Guardians of the Galaxy my interest hit a high note. With a cast including the enjoyable everyman Chris Pratt »

In terms of performers-turned-filmmakers, they don’t come much bigger than Jodie Foster and George Clooney. Between them, they are responsible for some of the more interesting and satisfying TV and film projects of the last few years – from episodes of Orange Is The New Black and House Of Cards (Foster), to movies like Good Night And Good Luck and The Ides Of March (Clooney). The prospect of these two talents collaborating is an exciting one, to say the least – so it comes as no surprise that Money Monster is already heading straight for ‘highly anticipated’ status, with studios clambering for a piece of the action. TriStar now seems to have won that battle, with a financing package of $30 million.

Warner Bros will take part in a Comic-Con panel tomorrow and likely reveal lots of information about its upcoming superhero movies. One news that we're waiting confirmation on is that the studio is in talks with Chris Terrio to write the script for "Justice League." Terrio wrote Ben Affleck's "Argo," and was brought on by Warner Bros to revise David Goyer's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" script. Apparently the studio was so impressed with his work that they would like to continue their relationship. "Justice League" will bring back Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), and is set to hit theaters on May 6th, 2016. »
The first photo is out of Mark Hamill in Matthew Vaughn's upcoming spy spoof "Kingsman: The Secret Service". Hamill appeared in the comic as himself in a gag involving his death at the hands of dodgy equipment. In the film though he's playing a character named Professor Arnold. [Source: Coming Soon]
"Argo" scribe Chris Terrio is in early discussions to pen the script for the “Justice League” movie at Warner Bros. Pictures. No offer is on the table at present but talks are underway, not a big surprise as Terrio also scripted the currently in production "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice". [Source: Variety]

While many eyes have been focused solely on Warner Bros. Dawn of Justice film, we can't forget that WB is planning something larger with their DC universe including a Justice League film. We will (hopefully) know more of their plans regarding that tomorrow during their panel, but in the meantime it's come out that the studios are currently courting Chris Terrio to pen the script for the team-up film. Come inside for all the details!
If you don't remember, Chris Terrio is the screenwriter who worked with Ben Affleck on Argo, and Ben liked him so much he encouraged WB to bring him on to polish up the Dawn of Justice script last year. According to Deadline, WB was so happy with the work he did on Batman v. Superman they want him to come back for Justice League.
Technically speaking...WB hasn't formally announced the Justice League film, but »
