Red Band Trailer for I Melt With You Starring Rob Lowe, Thomas Jane, and Jeremy Piven

1 October 2011 8:41 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

In spite of the fact that the 2011 Sundance Film Festival press screening of director Mark Pellington's (Henry Poole is Here) new movie, I Melt With You, resulted in what New York Magazine (Nym) described as a "moviegoer exodus," speculatively attributed to the "movie's constant drug-taking, which is so immense that the characters may have more lines of coke than lines of dialogue," Magnolia Pictures picked up the distribution rights to the movie and will be releasing it On Demand on Nov. 4, before its limited theatrical run on Dec. 9.

Written by Glenn Porter, I Melt With You stars Rob Lowe, Thomas Jane, Jeremy Piven and Christian McKay as four former high school friends who reunite at a summer beach house to, as Nym puts it, "do drugs, cry and scream about their midlife crises, and do more drugs."

Get Tore Up With the Red Band I Melt With You Trailer

1 October 2011 3:46 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Cocaine. I think the "you" in the title is cocaine. Magnolia Pictures has passed along the red band trailer for the Mark Pellington-directed (Arlington Road, Henry Poole Is Here) I Melt With You. From the look of the trailer, the mid-life crisis ensemble drama is some kind of mash up of The Big Chill and Stag. Or Very Bad Things if you prefer Christian Slater to Mario Van Peebles. Either way, it's middle-class to rich white guys lamenting the dead ends of their lives in drug-o-vision, and I think I might have to sit this one out. Alright, that's not even being close to fair--but there's something off-putting about the combination of the music and the cast of actors looking sad about growing older »

Akira: Warner Bros. Taps Jaume Collet-Serra To Direct

19 July 2011 12:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Back in May of this year, we told you that Albert Hughes (Book of Eli) was no longer to direct Warner Bros’ live-action adaptation of the anime cult classic, Akira, originally a graphic novel by Katsuhiro Otomo. Hughes reported left due to “amicable creative differences.” Keanu Reeves, who had been the front-runner to star as Kaneda, had also passed on the project in May.

Now, Variety reports that Warner Bros has tapped Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Orphan) to helm the project.

Steve Kloves, (Harry Potter 1-8) has written the latest draft of this live-action Akira. Book of Eli writer Gary Whitta, Albert Torres (Henry Poole is Here), and Iron Man scribes Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby have also contributed drafts in this development process. With the WB drawing from talent it has worked with successfully before like Kloves and Collet-Serra, it looks like this project is finally getting its legs underneath it. »

Jaume Collet-Serra Will Be Director for ‘Akira’

14 July 2011 2:56 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Akira” may finally be moving forward with a director again. Variety is reporting has signed Spanish-director Jaume Collet-Serra to the helm of the live-action adaptation of “Akira.” Collet-Serra has directed several films including “Orphan,” “Goal II: Living the Dream,” “House of Wax” and this year’s “Unknown.” According to Variety, the director has “a reputation for delivering successful films on time and on budget." The adapted film version will be an action film in New Manhattan rather than post-apocalyptic Neo-Tokyo. The storyline revolves around Kaneda saving his best friend from a medical experiment that threatens to unleash destructive powers. Directors Ruairi Robinson (“BlinkyTM,” “The Silent City”) and Albert Hughes (“The Book of Eli,” “From Hell”) were previously attached to the project. In addition, Variety is reporting scriptwriter Steve Kloves (“Harry Potter” film franchise) is handling the latest draft for the film.

Will we ever see a live-action Akira movie, and could one possibly work?

20 February 2011 9:48 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Recent days have once again seen rumours surface over a potential live-action Akira adaptation. We pick through the latest stories that surround the project...

For devotees of Katsuhiro Otomo's legendary 80s manga and animated feature, the long-in-development Akira live-action movie is like a ghost. News of it materialises every twelve months or so, provokes a brief spell of fear and loathing among fans, and then disappears into the ether for another year.

Way back in the early 90s, shortly after the dubbed version of Otomo's animated Akira created a storm of excitement in the West, Sony began negotiations with Kodansha Ltd, the owners of the Akira property, in the hope of adapting the concept for the big screen. When that deal collapsed, Warner Bros stepped in to produce, with two movies said to be in the works.

Since then, the live-action Akira has quietly broiled in development hell. Numerous actors, »

Harry Potter Screenwriter Tackles Akira

20 February 2011 4:01 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Anyone with reservations about The Hughes Brothers' upcoming Akira might take some comfort from the fact that great efforts are being made to crack the script before the project goes before the cameras. Following drafts by Mark Fergus & Hawk Ostby (Children of Men, Iron Man), Gary Whitta (The Walking Dead, The Book of Eli) and Albert Torres (Henry Poole is Here), the latest writer to dive into Katsuhiro Otomo's colossal manga is Steve Kloves.Kloves previously adapted Michael Chabon's Wonder Boys and is one of two credited screenwriters on something called The Amazing Spider-Man, but he's probably best known for having beaten every single Harry Potter novel (apart from The Order of the Phoenix) into movie shape. While mention of Harry Potter and Akira in the same sentence might initially cause a sharp intake of breath, Kloves' presence here makes a lot of sense: he's a writer known »

Harry Potter Screenwriter Steve Kloves Taking Over Akira

20 February 2011 6:36 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Warner Bros. has been recruited Harry Potter screenwriter Steve Kloves to refine a script for the Hughes Brothers’ adaptation of the Japanese manga epic Akira.

Albert Hughes is directing “Akira,” based on Katsuhiro Otomo‘s graphic novel placed in a post-apocalyptic Japan. Warner purchased the “Akira” rights three years ago from publisher Kodansha and share it with Andrew Lazar‘s ‘Mad Chance,’ ‘Appian Way’s’ Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson ‘Killoran.’ Albert Hughes and his brother, Allen Hughes (The Book of Eli, From Hell) will also co-produce.

If you are not familiar with this manga, the story centers on teenager Shōtarō Kaneda, a child with immense psychic powers and his mission to stop his friend Tetsuo from demolishing a Neo-Tokyo. According to Variety, the latest version of the script was written by Albert Torres (Henry Poole Is Here). Mark Fergus, Hawk Ostby and Gary Whitta wrote in an early draft. »

Harry Potter Screenwriter Steve Kloves to Work on Akira Script

18 February 2011 11:05 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has hired Harry Potter screenwriter Steve Kloves to do a polish on the script for the Hughes Brothers' adaptation of the Japanese manga Akira.  For those unfamiliar with the manga and the 1988 anime adaptation, the story centers on teenager Shōtarō Kaneda and his quest to stop his friend Tetsuo from destroying Neo-Tokyo.  Per Variety, "the latest version of the script was penned by Albert Torres (Henry Poole Is Here), with earlier drafts by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby and Gary Whitta."  The problem is that "polish" is a very flexible word when it comes to script work and there aren't any details on what Kloves' polish will entail.  However, since Kloves has done strong work on the Harry Potter films (he wrote all of them except for Order of the Phoenix), he seems like the right guy to take a crack at helping to condense the six-volume manga into a live-action feature film. »

"Harry Potter" Scribe To Tackle "Akira"

18 February 2011 9:14 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Steve Kloves, who adapted the scripts for all the films in the "Harry Potter" series (aside from 'Order of the Phoenix'), has been recruited to polish Warner Bros. Pictures live-action remake of Japanese manga epic "Akira" reports Variety.

Katsuhiro Otomo’s six-volume cyberpunk manga was set in a neon-lit futuristic post-nuclear war "New Tokyo" in 2019. Kaneda is a bike gang leader whose close friend Tetsuo gets involved in a secret government project known as Akira. Trying to save him, Kaneda runs into anti-government activists, corrupt politicians, irresponsible scientists and a despotic military leader.

The confrontation sparks off Tetsuo's supernatural power leading to not only death but the uncovering of the truth about Akira that the government tried to bury three decades before. The story was previously adapted into a 1988 anime film which is considered a classic of the genre. This version plans to stick close to the original manga and »

‘Harry Potter’ Screenwriter Steve Kloves Rewriting ‘Akira’

18 February 2011 8:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

There has been a lot of small news of late on the Warner Bros. remake of Akira, which will be directed by Albert Hughes and produced by he and his brother Allen for Appian Way and WB. James Franco, Mila Kunis and Brad Pitt were reportedly all offered roles, and WB seems keen on casting a big name in the lead. Now there is word -- and this is the most reliable report we've had on the film so far -- that Harry Potter screenwriter Steve Kloves is going to polish the script written by Albert Torres (Henry Poole is Here). Variety [1] has the news, but doesn't offer much else -- there is no budget, cast or start date. Previous script drafts were by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby and Gary Whitta, but all evidence is that the Albert Torres draft remains in play, and that is what will be polished. »

'I Melt With You' Sundance Review: The Year's Dullest Debauchery

1 February 2011 11:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Reviews, Sundance Film Festival, Cinematical, Festivals

In 'I Melt with You,' a quartet of 44-year-old men who were friends in college reunite for their annual weekend of debauchery and hedonism. Sounds fun, right? Not this time! This time, one of the four is being a real Debbie Downer, reminding everyone of how they've failed to live up to any of their youthful ideals, and how they're all terrible human beings. They start to wonder if life is even worth living. Having sat the ludicrous tedium of 'I Melt with You,' I know how they feel.

Seldom has a film that longed to be so insightful wound up being so superficial. Directed by Mark Pellington ('The Mothman Prophecies,' 'Henry Poole Is Here') and written by Glenn Porter from a story the two conceived together, 'I Melt with You' attempts to turn »

Jeremy Piven, Thomas Jane, Christian McKay and Sasha Grey in Teaser Clips From ‘I Melt With You’

21 January 2011 4:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

On Monday we showed you a brief character clip [1] of Rob Lowe from I Melt With You, the new film from Mark Pellington (Arlington Road, Henry Poole is Here). Four more were released this week, and now that the final clip is out (a Nsfw one featuring Sasha Grey) we've collected the latter four for your perusal. See 'em all after the break. Here, once again, is the recap of the film from the Sundance website [2]: Richard, Ron, Tim, and Jonathan are friends from college who gather for a weekend each year to celebrate their friendship and catch up with each other. On the surface, they look like other men going through life: they have careers and families and responsibilities. But as with many people, there is more to them than meets the eye. As the weekend progresses, they go down the rabbit hole of excess. Fueled by sex, »

‘I Melt With You’ Teaser Trailer

17 January 2011 7:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

I Melt With You is the next film from Mark Pellington (Arlington Road, Henry Poole is Here) and will debut soon at the Sundance Film Festival. Below you'll find the first of a series of very brief teasers for the film. This one features Rob Lowe, seemingly in a mode of quiet distress. We've known all along that this was intended to be an emotionally intense, perhaps even harrowing film. This very brief clip makes me wonder what we'll see are more are released over the course of this week. My curiosity remains engaged.  The film also features Jeremy Piven, Thomas Jane, Christian McKay, Sasha Grey, Carla Gugino and more. We don't know too much about the production, which was rather quietly produced on a fairly small budget. The following plot came from THR a few months back. The character drama follows a group of college buddies (Jane, Lowe and Piven) who, »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Seven

7 January 2011 9:58 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

I Am Number Four

Opens: February 18th 2011

Cast: Alex Pettyfer, Timothy Olyphant, Dianna Agron, Kevin Durand, Teresa Palmer

Director: D.J. Caruso

Summary: Nine infant aliens flee their home planet to hide out on Earth. The species that destroyed their planet however has followed them and sets out to hunt them down. As the infants grow into teenagers with special powers, three of them are killed. A fourth has fallen in love and now has something to stand up and fight for.

Analysis: In premise and look, this sounds like a big budget and more action-oriented reboot of late sci-fi teen drama "Roswell". Though based on a young adult novel series, it was another title in this category that was the impetus for this adaptation - Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" series. Any novels with a focus on teen romance and an other worldly touch are presently being bought up right and »
