George Clooney Is Making His Grand Return to TV by Adapting a Classic Novel

  • BuzzSugar
Eighteen years after ending his run as Dr. Doug Ross on E.R., George Clooney is returning to the small screen. The Suburbicon director will direct and star in a limited series adaptation of Joseph Heller's 1961 novel Catch-22, per Variety. With other big movie stars like Nicole Kidman and Anthony Hopkins making award-winning and nominated jumps to "prestige" TV shows (Big Little Lies, Westworld), Clooney's decision to do so himself seems like a smart choice. Catch-22 follows Us Air Force Captain John Yossarian as he gets caught up in a bureaucratic paradox in Italy in the midst of WWII. If a soldier declares insanity to be released from duty so as to avoid participating in dangerous missions - only an insane person would continue to fly into certain danger - doesn't his declaration inherently demonstrate sanity? Our minds are already short-circuiting. Clooney will appear as Yossarian's commander, Colonel Cathcart, and

Set in 1892, Hostiles tells the story of a legendary Army Captain (Christian Bale), who after stern resistance, reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back to tribal lands. Making the harrowing and perilous journey from Fort Berringer, an

Stephen King talks The Stand and Salem’s Lot adaptations

It’s been a heavy year for Stephen King adaptations, with feature film versions of The Dark Tower, It and Gerald’s Game (with 1922 still to come later this month), as well as The Mist and Mr. Mercedes on the small screen.

Next year is set to bring us the Hulu series Castle Rock, while filming on It: Chapter Two is also expected to take place, and now King has revealed to Vulture that a further two adaptations may be in the pipeline.

“There’s talk about doing The Stand as an extended TV series, possibly for Showtime or CBS All Access. And there’s been some interest in developing Salem’s Lot as a feature, probably because people are saying, ‘Well, we took an old miniseries called It and turned it into a phenomenon, so maybe we can do it with something else.’ Nothing succeeds like excess!”

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon Team for Movie on America's First Detectives
Paramount Pictures is teaming up with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon through their Pearl Street Films production company to produce The Shadows, based on a true story set in their hometown of Boston. There is no indication that either actor will star in the film, and it seems they will both just be producing at this time. This news comes just days after Ben Affleck was accused of sexual misconduct, for groping actress Hilarie Burton while she was hosting MTV's Trl back in 2004. The actor later apologized for his actions.

The project comes from writer Chris Bremner, who took his pitch to Paramount, which the studio acquired, and now he will be writing the script. The story will be based on Matthew Pearl's Boston Globe Magazine article "Into the Shadows," which chronicles America's first ever undercover police officers, who were based in Affleck and Damon's hometown of Boston.

Lff 2017: ‘6 Days’ Review: Dir. Toa Fraser (2017)

6 Days review: Reviewed at the 2017 BFI London Film Festival, Toa Fraser’s true-life drama revolves around the real-life Iranian Embassy siege in April, 1980.

6 Days review by Dan Bullock.

6 Days review

6 Days is based on the real-life Iranian Embassy siege in April 1980 when terrorists stormed the building in London and held over 25 hostages in the hope of getting 91 Iranian prisoners released. Historically, the event is known for the clear intention given by Thatcher’s government, only a year into power, who wanted their message of ‘no negotiations’ to be in the forefront of the mind to anyone threatening the UK.

Directed by Toa Fraser, 6 Days begins as a slow-burner that jumps into life in the second half of the film, just as the interest begins to wane. There’s no doubt of intrigue but due to the nature of modern-day films, and siege scenarios being common in major crime thrillers, it

Ben Affleck Teases The Giant Scale Of Justice League

Of course, people that make movies are going to use superlatives when talking about their production – this is not unexpected. Whether a film’s low budget independent fare, or a giant tentpole upon which a major studio is hanging its entire year, these celluloid products are a labour of love for those that have spent time putting them together. So, as we buckle up for a tidal wave of Justice League promotion, ahead of its November 17th release date, we’re fully prepared to hear all about how we should definitely buy tickets to this already highly anticipated flick. But, having said that, when Ben Affleck says this thing “feels massive,” it’s time to sit up and take notice.

His widely reported comments come from an interview with Empire Magazine.

Ben Affleck – A Gentle Reminder Ahead of Justice League

Martin Carr on Ben Affleck

With Justice League tracking a huge box office opening, Joss Whedon busy lightening tone and Zack Snyder stepping away permanently, there are others who have become lost amongst the kerfuffle. One is an Oscar-winning screenwriter and Best Picture winner, hounded by paparazzi and internet rumour mills for his continued role in Warner’s DC universe. Not only did he give us a new and surprising Batman, but was also hailed as the best thing in a film which others refer to politely as disjointed. He is Ben Affleck.

Amongst the white noise of reshoots, lacklustre reviews for Live By Night and his Batman commitment issues, some might have forgotten what Affleck has achieved. Sure he might have made amends for his Daredevil with that pitch black Bruce Wayne, but the media hop-scotch which has come with The Batman has undone some of that. However with

5 Key Details About Star Wars: Episode IX We've Already Got Our Hands On

  • BuzzSugar
Sure, everyone might be losing their minds over Star Wars: The Last Jedi since it comes out in December, but what about the conclusion of the trilogy? It's never too early to look ahead when it comes to this franchise, and there are already plenty of key details about Episode IX floating around. The Director J.J. Abrams is returning to the Star Wars franchise to write and direct the as-yet-untitled film. Abrams was celebrated for launching the new trilogy in 2015 with The Force Awakens, which Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy cited as their reason for welcoming him back to the fold. Abrams is replacing Jurassic World's Colin Trevorrow, who was ousted from the project following the debut of his widely panned drama, The Book of Henry. The Writers Abrams is set to serve as cowriter for IX alongside Chris Terrio. Terrio's past screenplays include Argo and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

General Hux's Fate Questioned as J.J. Abrams Preps Star Wars 9

General Hux's Fate Questioned as J.J. Abrams Preps Star Wars 9
Will General Hux live or die in The Last Jedi? Is Domhnall Gleeson playing a legacy character, or someone who's action figure remains on otherwise empty hooks at the local Target. The character certainly isn't at the top of any favorites lists. And he seems like an early candidate for death in the next sequel. But no one quite knowns where the character's fate rests. Not even the actor who plays him.

Last week, it was confirmed that the new director of Star Wars 9 was none other than J.J. Abrams, who was set to both write and direct Star Wars 9 after the sudden firing of Colin Trevorrow. Very little was known about the story even before Colin Trevorrow's exit. With J.J. Abrams taking over the writing duties alongside new writing partner Chris Terrio (Argo, Batman v. Superman, Justice League), whatever Colin Trevorrow had in his book of ideas is expected to get scrapped.
