'Apes' Director And 'Rogue One' Writer To Bring 'Mouse Guard' To The Big Screen!

19 July 2016 8:09 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Beloved, best-selling comic book series "Mouse Guard" is about to get the big screen treatment, and the project has already locked in some major talent. Matt Reeves, the man responsible for Cloverfield and the latter two modern Planet Of The Apes movies, will sit in the director's chair, while Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Book Of Eli) will be writing it.

The Hollywood Reporter has brought to light that the production will utilize groundbreaking technology from the Apes franchise, as well as the tools Jon Favreau used to make The Jungle Book, to bring Mouse Guard vividly to life.

"In the world of Mouse Guard, mice struggle to live safely and prosper amongst harsh conditions

and a host of predators. Thus the Mouse Guard was formed: more than just soldiers, they are guides for common mice looking to journey without confrontation from one village to another.

Mouse Guard Heads For The Big Screen

19 July 2016 5:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following the success of Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book earlier this year, CG live-action is becoming an increasingly appealing prospect for Hollywood studios. Fox is jumping aboard that trend by optioning the very popular, bi-monthly, independent comic book series Mouse Guard for adaptation – with Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) writing the screenplay.

Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) will produce the project, which will see the characters of these graphic novels brought to life. The source material first launched in 2006, and was created by David Petersen. It tells the story of medieval, anthropomorphic mice, and the way in which they protect their community from predators and foe. With ten years of storytelling to play with, in addition to a number of spin-off series, Fox will be hoping that Mouse Guard will be the beginning of a brand new franchise opportunity for the studio.

Mouse Guard is in the very early stages of development, »

‘Rogue One’s’ Gary Whitta adapting ‘Mouse Guard’ fantasy series for film

18 July 2016 4:54 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

David Petersen's fantastic graphic novel series Mouse Guard is finally getting adapted for the big screen and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's Gary Whitta is writing the script for Twentieth Century Fox. Set in a medieval landscape, the first issue of Mouse Guard was released back in 2006 from indie publisher Archaia (now an imprint of Boom! Studios). Focusing on walking, talking mice Saxon, Kenzie, and Lieam, the series exists in a world where humans don't exist. And it's come a long way since it began, spawning anthology series The Legends of the Guard as well as a roleplaying game. The movie itself has been a long time coming. As early as 2008 I spoke with Petersen, who at the time had producer David Kirschner attached to help adapt Fall into a film. The latest news has Matt Reeves and Gary Whitta attached. The Hollywood Reporter writes: Twentieth Century Fox »

T.J. Miller to voice a character in The Emoji Movie

18 July 2016 1:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A recent video posted online by Sony Pictures Animation, the production company behind such kid-friendly animated mega-hits as The Smurfs and Hotel Transylvania, has revealed that T.J. Miller is the first to join the cast of Emojimovie: Express Yourself. In the video, Miller auditions for a role in the movie by testing out his best emoji impressions on the casting director, but eventually realizes that he may have been fed some false details about the project. See it below…

The actor and comedian will be lending his voice to play “Gene, who was supposed to be a “meh” emoji like his parents. However, the optimistic character has a glitch that causes him to have multiple expressions outside of his control.” From there, in his quest to be a single emotion emoji, it sounds like he will learn to accept his abnormality as more of a blessing than a curse.

7 Great Movies You Probably Missed in 2016

27 June 2016 2:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As with almost any year, 2016 has had its fair share of good and bad movies. We are right in the middle of the summer movie season, and it feels like there are way too many movies coming out every week. It is becoming really hard to keep up with them all. Either that, or a truly excellent movie may get little or no attention when during its initial launch. That being the case, it is really easy for some truly great movies to slip through the cracks.

In terms of what movies people are seeing this year, it isn't exactly a surprise. Though, one look at the Box Office Mojo 2016 top grossing movies chart, and there are a few things that weren't expected back in January. Disney is having another astonishing year, with Captain America: Civil War having grossed $1.147 billion worldwide, good enough for the top spot overall. Zootopia was expected to be a hit, »

Nicolas Winding Refn Reveals Seven Surprising Film Inspirations: ‘La Dolce Vita,’ ‘Cloverfield’ & More

27 June 2016 7:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nicolas Winding Refn has made a provocative career out of blending the avant grade with traditional genre elements (see his latest shocker “The Neon Demon” for proof), and given the following seven films on his list of cinematic inspirations, this speciality of his somehow all makes sense. As part of his current publicity tour for the Elle Fanning-starring horror film, Refn has partnered with online streaming service Mubi to curate a season’s worth of titles based on the movies that have inspired and excited him most.

Refn has always been an outspoken fan of Federico Fellini and giallo master Dario Aregnto, so seeing films like “La Dolce Vita” and “Suspiria” on his list shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, especially since the latter seems to have been a major influence on “The Neon Demon. »

Blu-ray Review: 10 Cloverfield Lane

Sleeper shocker 10 Cloverfield Lane comes to Blu-ray. I think everyone was surprised by 10 Cloverfield Lane. First of all, we were surprised that the movie even existed. Shot under the phony title Valencia, the movie just appeared on its real moniker a month or so prior to release, sending fans of producer J.J. Abrams’…

Exclusive Interview: John Gallagher Jr. Talks 10 Cloverfield Lane and Hush

14 June 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A bunker could be a sanctuary or a prison in 10 Cloverfield Lane. With Paramount Home Media Distribution releasing the film on a Blu-ray / DVD / Digital HD combo pack today, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with actor John Gallagher Jr., who plays Emmett in the film, about improvising with Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Goodman, unknowingly becoming a part of the Cloverfield franchise, and his respective roles in Hush and The Belko Experiment, the latter of which he refers to as “Office Space meets The Purge.”

Can you tell me how you got involved with this project? My understanding was that it wasn’t initially a Cloverfield movie, so what attracted you to this story and character?

John Gallagher Jr.: I checked my email one day, and saw that my agent had sent me a script to take a look at. The working title was Valencia, but then there was a parenthetical that said, “aka The Cellar.” I was intrigued by both of the titles, and I started to see some of the names that were involved, and of course, you can’t help but have a name like J.J. Abrams leap out at you when you’re looking at that.

I finished the script and I thought it was amazing, and then I met the director, Dan Trachtenberg. We hit it off, and I could tell that he had a great vision for the movie, and I believed that he could do it, and then I saw a short film that he made that proved to me that he absolutely had a lot of vision and some serious chops. For someone who had never made a feature film before, I totally believed that he had it in him to do it.

Then I found out that John Goodman and Mary Elizabeth Winstead had signed on, and my first thought was, “I don’t think you could find two better people for those roles.” They’re pitch-perfect. I’ve been a big fan of both of theirs for years, and absolutely believed that they would do some fantastic things for the roles. Then I sent in an audition tape and crossed my fingers that I would get the gig, and I did, and it was as much of a joy as it was reading it. Making the movie itself was absolutely a joy. It was so much fun.

At the time, I had no idea that I was signing up to be part of the legacy of Cloverfield, and that I would be in the spiritual successor to the film. I had no clue that any of that was coming. Even after we wrapped the movie, I didn’t find out for about another year that we had entered into the “Cloververse”, as it’s been referred to in the past. I just thought I was lucky enough to be in one thing, and then it turned out that I was lucky enough to be in this whole other thing. It was such a roller coaster ride, and a total organic series of surprises, being involved in it.

Some of my favorite scenes had to be when the three of you were having dinner. It really is a testament to how great all three of you are as actors and how well you jelled. Can you talk about how the three of you worked together on those scenes? Was it pretty much all in the script or was there a lot of improv?

John Gallagher Jr.: We would get drafts as we were getting closer and closer to shooting it, and things would get rewritten here and there, but in every draft there was one version of this dinner scene gone wrong, of these three people trying to sit down and have what, in the frame, initially looks like an ideal family dinner. Of course it isn’t, and it devolves rather quickly.

We didn’t have any rehearsal going into the movie. We’d just get there on the day of and talk through the scene. Dan totally encouraged us to improvise with each other, and in fact, some of the stuff that I say to John, and some of the conversations I have with Mary, is stuff that got improvised.

We started referencing board games in that [dinner] scene, which was in the script, but then Dan was like, “just keep going, and just throw in different board games and start to improvise about the board games we played,” and so Mary started talking about Trouble and the Pop-o-Matic bubble, and then I started talking about Operation, and we just kept going off of that with each other. There are things in that scene that actually ended up being improvised moments that they ended up keeping when they were editing it together. Those were some of my favorite moments, shooting those scenes where we really just got to sit and talk to each other.

Genre audiences got to see some different sides of you this year, as you starred in two very different types of roles for 10 Cloverfield Lane and Hush. As an actor, what types of roles do you look for to challenge yourself? How important is it to take on roles that are less comfortable for you?

John Gallagher Jr.: It really just begins with the script. If there’s something about it that jumps out at me and feels original and exciting, that’s something that I would like to see. The truth is that I don’t necessarily want to be recognized as a personality, as somebody watching a movie and going, “Oh, here’s that guy again, cool, I like this guy.” I’d rather have people go, “Wait, is that the guy from that other thing?” I like to change and evolve and challenge myself, and hopefully surprise myself in the end, and I like to do things that are a little scary. It’s really terrifying to have that feeling where you go, “Oh my god, can I do this? I don’t know if I can do this, but I’m going to try, because I want to try.”

I finished Cloverfield in November or December, and then in February or March, I got a call saying that this script had come in, and Mike Flanagan had offered me the role of a masked, nameless, psychotic serial killer with no background or motive, and I thought, “Why did they want me to do this?” I’ve never done anything like this. I’ve wanted to. I had to try to convince people to let me play bad guys for years, and nobody ever took the bait. Mike Flanagan, who wrote and directed Hush, asked me if I would, and I totally leapt at the chance. He was like, “I think we should give you a tattoo, shave your head, and I said, “Sounds great, sign me up. Let’s go to the barber right now.” Let’s find out a way to make this character seem scary, but also real in a sense.

I felt really, really lucky that I got to do such different things back-to-back that people have been digging this year.

After Hush and 10 Cloverfield Lane, a lot of people are wondering what’s next for you. Do you have any genre projects coming up?

John Gallagher Jr.: I’m doing a play on Broadway right now with Jessica Lange and Michael Shannon and Gabriel Byrne. We’re doing Long Day’s Journey into Night, the Eugene O’Neill play, and we’ve only got two and a half more weeks left of doing it, but we’ve been doing it since April.

Then, I filmed a movie last year called The Belko Experiment that’s an MGM film written by James Gunn, who wrote and directed Guardians of the Galaxy, among other great things that he’s done, and directed by Greg McLean, who directed the Wolf Creek movies, which are these really freaky Australian horror movies.

We shot that last year in Colombia, and that’s got a great cast: Tony Goldwyn, John C. McGinley, Michael Rooker, David Dastmalchian, Rusty Schwimmer, Brent Sexton, lots of really fantastic actors. It’s a huge ensemble. I would describe it as Office Space meets The Purge.

It’s funny, I did a lot of dramas and small, character-based indie films in the last year, and then somehow, last year I ended up doing three genre pictures back-to-back, which was a total surprise to me, but it’s been an absolute joy working in that field, because it’s the kind of movies that I’ve been watching since I was a teenager, so it’s been really fun to start working a little bit more in that medium.

Recommended Discs & Deals: ’10 Cloverfield Lane, ’45 Years,’ ‘La Chienne,’ and More

14 June 2016 6:43 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best (or most interesting) films one can take home. Note that if you’re looking to support the site, every purchase you make through the links below helps us and is greatly appreciated.

10 Cloverfield Lane (Dan Trachtenberg)

Forget the Cloverfield connection. The actors who were in this film didn’t even know what the title was until moments before the first trailer dropped. Producer J.J. Abrams used that branding as part of the wrapping for its promotional mystery box, but the movie stands perfectly alone from 2008’s found-footage monster picture. Hell, 10 Cloverfield Lane perhaps doesn’t even take place within the same fictional universe as that film — although a friend asked if it’s secretly a Super 8 sequel, and, honestly, you could think of it as one without contradicting anything in either movie. Whether the Cloverfield name fills you with wariness or enthusiasm, it would be unwise to burden Dan Trachtenberg‘s film with such prejudices. – Dan S. (full review)

45 Years (Andrew Haigh)

Andrew Haigh’s third feature as a director, 45 Years, is an excellent companion piece to its 2011 predecessor, Weekend. The latter examined the inception of a potential relationship between two men over the course of a weekend, whereas its successor considers the opposite extreme. Again sticking to a tight timeframe, the film chronicles the six days leading up to a couple’s 45th wedding anniversary. Though highly accomplished, Weekend nevertheless suffered from a tendency towards commenting on itself as a gay issues film, which at times overrode the otherwise compelling realism. Despite treating material arguably even more underrepresented in cinema – senior relationships – Haigh avoids this same self-reflexive pitfall in 45 Years, pulling off an incisive and emotionally ensnaring tour de force. – Giovanni M.C. (full review)

Here Comes Mr. Jordan (Alexander Hall)

A sophisticated supernatural Hollywood comedy whose influence continues to be felt, Here Comes Mr. Jordan stars the eminently versatile Robert Montgomery as a working-class boxer and amateur aviator whose plane crashes in a freak accident. He finds himself in heaven but is told, by a wry angel named Mr. Jordan (Claude Rains), that his death was a clerical error, and that he can return to Earth by entering the body of a corrupt (and about-to-be-murdered) financier—whose soul could use a transplant. Nominated for seven Oscars (it won two) and the inspiration for a sequel with Rita Hayworth and two remakes, Alexander Hall’s effervescent Here Comes Mr. Jordan is comic perfection. – Criterion.com

La Chienne (Jean Renoir)

Jean Renoir’s ruthless love triangle tale, his second sound film, is a true precursor to his brilliantly bitter The Rules of the Game, displaying all of the filmmaker’s visual genius and fully imbued with his profound humanity. Michel Simon cuts a tragic figure as an unhappily married cashier and amateur painter who becomes so smitten with a prostitute that he refuses to see the obvious: that she and her pimp boyfriend are taking advantage of him. Renoir’s elegant compositions and camera movements carry this twisting narrative—a stinging commentary on class and sexual divisions—to an unforgettably ironic conclusion. – Criterion.com

Tom Hiddleston and Aaron Paul on ‘Breaking Bad,’ TV vs. Film and Humbling Auditions

9 June 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Aaron Paul and Tom Hiddleston had never met before our Variety “Actors on Actors” studio. But a bromance was born even before the taping began thanks to the dartboard in the green room [yes, they’re a tad competitive]. The mutual fans peppered each other with probing questions about their projects — Hiddleston stars in AMC’s “The Night Manager,” while Paul headlines Hulu’s “The Path” — but they also found time to swap stories about auditions gone awry.

Tom Hiddleston: How did this role [on “The Path”] come to you? Did it come to you as an idea? Did it come to you as a script? I imagine you must have had so many choices at that moment.

Aaron Paul: I actually wasn’t really entertaining the idea of jumping into TV so soon. When it came to me it was about three years after we had wrapped “Breaking Bad.” It was already set up, it was »

Aaron Paul Describes His ‘Awful’ Audition in Front of J.J. Abrams

31 May 2016 4:24 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Aaron Paul once allowed a magic trick to ruin his audition for J.J. Abrams’ “Cloverfield.” Paul sat down with Tom Hiddleston for Variety and PBS’ “Actors on Actors” series and let the rabbit out of the hat.

“I went into this audition for ‘Cloverfield.’ J.J. Abrams was producing it and I kept asking if J.J. was going to be in the room and 100% of the time they said ‘no, he’s out of the state,'” said Paul.

The actor had just finished working with Abrams on “Mission Impossible 3” and per a friend’s advice, expressed to Abrams an interest in magic. The director, being a fan of magic himself, coerced Paul to perform a card trick in front of the entire cast, including Tom Cruise, who he had not yet met.

He performed the trick, receiving an affirming gesture from Cruise, and it became a moment Abrams did not forget. »
